There’s nothing quite like a good sale to start your week and today’s got some doozies! From the newest contender for Instant Pot’s crown to the best hair dryer we’ve ever tested, a lot of great items are at their best prices. Beyond that, there are some killer sales happening too.
We don’t just toss any old sales in front of you, either. We make sure the prices and products are actually worth your time and money before we share a thing. From looking at our own reviews and test results to scoping out the quality of customer reviews and studying the price histories, our goal is to only present to you the absolute best deals you can get this Monday.
1. The best hair dryer is at its lowest price ever
Stop everything. The Harry Josh hair dryer is only $169 right now from Dermstore. In the 2+ years I’ve been writing about deals and sales, I have never ever seen this award-winning hair dryer on sale for this price. Ever. It got close once when it reached $175 last December, but if you missed that sale, don’t skip this one, which luckily just got extended for today.
When our reviewer pitted the Harry Josh against all the other top hair dryers on the market, she loved that it was compact and comfortable to hold during her entire blowout (and she has a lot of hair). This praise came despite the Harry Josh being the heaviest model she tested at 1.2 pounds. It also delivered the fastest drying time, taking just 22 minutes to take her from wet to styled, with others taking closer to half an hour.

2. Save up to 30% on Anker charging accessories today only
Anker makes some of the best charging accessories, from fast-charge wall adapters to tough, durable cables to wireless mats and portable batteries. Today, they’re running a Deal of the Day on Amazon featuring 10 different ways to make it easier to charge your phone, computer, and other devices.
My top recommendation from the list? The Anker PowerCore Speed 20000, which usually costs $60 but is on sale for just $42, matching its best price ever. This portable backup battery has two USB ports and enough juice to recharge an iPhone 7 up to seven times on a single charge. Just think, you’ll only have to charge this thing up at max once a week. But if you’re looking for something else, I’d highly recommend checking out the selection.

3. The insanely popular Echo Dot is back on sale
If you don’t already have a smart speaker somewhere in your home, what are you waiting for? At the very least, having one in your kitchen to set timers and add things to your shopping list while you’re elbow-deep in a batch of cookies can make your life surprisingly better.
If you’re not 100% sure an Echo is right for you or you’ve already got one of the larger models already, the third-gen. Dot is a great choice. Not only is it already the most affordable Echo, but it’s also $20 off right now. While it’s not the best price we’ve seen, it is the first time the Dot’s been on sale since Groundhog’s Day, and only $6 more than its Black Friday low. I think this is the perfect excuse to get one.

4. Save 50% on select hair care from Ulta
If you like to take good care of your hair, you know it’s super important to have the right products, and the cheap stuff you find at the drug store typically just doesn’t cut it. So Ulta is running this 21-day sale event called the Gorgeous Hair Event with new discounts every day. Today, you can get 50% off Pureology Hydrate Sheer shampoo and conditioner as well as 50% off some Joico K-PAK treatments and masks. And we recommend browsing the sale page to see what’s coming. If there’s something you love, set a calendar alert or reminder so you don’t miss your chance.

5. The XL Ninja Foodi is $80 off today only
You know how Instant Pots allow you to get rid of your rice cooker and slow cooker because they are great multitaskers? Well, the Ninja Foodi is basically the same thing, but it also has an air fryer to help you save even more counter and cabinet space. We actually just finished testing it and our cooking editor, Cassidy Olsen, just assured me we really loved it!
Today, there’s an Amazon Deal of the Day that knocks the price of the typically $280 8-quart device down to just $200, the same price as the 6-quart version and the best sale we’ve ever seen on this new and amazing cooking tool by a large margin. Until today, the best discount was a $10 price drop. Big deal, right?

6. One of the best yoga mats is only $15 today
Whether you’re a fitness fanatic or just starting out on your journey to a healthier you, a good yoga mat can come in handy. But if you’re not a yoga superfan you don’t necessarily need to invest in a really expensive mat. Just something to get you by when you’re working out on hard floors should be enough, and the AmazonBasics mat is the best choice for your routine and your wallet. We named it the best starter yoga mat because it typically only costs $20 and it’s thick enough to protect your knees while you workout and get used to new activities. Right now the black mat is only $15, the biggest discount we’ve ever seen for this affordable mat.

7. Wayfair’s outdoor, bath, and bed sales are still going strong
Wayfair is always discounting something, and right now the savings are all about bed and bath, as well as your outdoor space. So whether you’ve been dying to give your bedroom a facelift or you’re getting your backyard ready for barbecue season, it’s time to browse the furniture retailer for your dream looks. You can find patio furniture, outdoor rugs, heaters and grills for up to 50% off, or turn your sights inside and get up to 70% on bed and bath decor and furniture.
One thing I love about Wayfair, aside from the fact you never have to (and shouldn’t) pay full price, is their customer service. You’ve probably heard the horror stories of people getting things from Wayfair that show up damaged, but you’ve probably also heard that they take these issues to heart and typically offers full replacements if anything goes wrong with your order. It’s a nice reassurance that you’ll get your money’s worth.
