1. Nearly 50% off: An amazing pair of headphones
A good pair of headphones is a must if you’re a music lover. And if you hate earbuds but also don’t want full noise cancellation, these headphones might be up your alley. Drop (formerly Massdrop) took the Sennheiser HD 650s, made a few tweaks based on real user feedback, and released the HD 6XX. The best part is that they’re only $220 compared to the typical $400 price for the HD 650s, which are currently on sale for $319 on Amazon. These open-back headphones are great if you want to experience great sound without jumping a mile when someone tries to get your attention.

2. Under $150: Our favorite affordable cordless vacuum at its best price
If you want a vacuum that performs similarly to a coveted Dyson without paying a Dyson price, then you might want to consider the Tineco A10 Hero. It’s the best affordable cordless vacuum we’ve ever tested because it has a pretty impressive suction for its low cost. It also picked up almost half the dust and dirt and had an impressive battery time (14 minutes on the normal setting), which was a pretty similar performance to some of the more expensive models we tested. Right now, you can save $20 at Amazon with the on-page coupon and an extra $50 with the code “WFSQVH39” at checkout—that’s $70 in savings and the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this vacuum.

3. Under $20: This smart scale is 50% off
A scale is key if you’re watching your weight or trying to shed a few pounds before summer really gets underway. A smart scale is better—it tracks your data for you so all you have to do is step on in the mornings and watch your progress from your phone. Right now, this affordable smart scale from Eufy is half off for one day only, and aside from the fact that it has its own app it also syncs with Fitbit, Apple Health, and Google Fit. It also claims to measure body fat, BMI, bone mass, muscle mass, and more, but I don’t know how accurate that stuff really is. The most appealing part for me and my tiny apartment is that it’s less than a square foot so it won’t take up a ton of room.

4. Under $10: An impressive car charger
Whether you’re a commuter, a road trip taker, or an Uber driver, you should have a way to keep your phone juiced up on the road. GPS navigation and Spotify streaming (because I know you’re not texting and driving, thank you) can eat through your battery, so invest in a good car USB charger to prevent a dead phone. This one from MaxBoost is a great choice. Not only is it down to its lowest price ever, but it’s also the second best car charger we’ve tested.
The MaxBoost, which features two ports for dual charging, narrowly missed being named our top pick because the winner (RAVPower) was smaller and sleeker in design. But the MaxBoost boasts the fastest charging time for a single phone and can get you back up and running in under two hours, compared to the RAVPower charger’s full 2-hour charge time.

5. The iPad Pro is under $1,000
Hold the phone. The iPad Pro is $200 off on Amazon right now (you might say I saved the best for last). If you fancy yourself a budding digital artist or amateur photographer (or just like entertaining the idea that you could do those things), this beast of a tablet should be the perfect tool. Its 12.9-inch screen, massive 256GB memory, and nearly 10 hours of battery life also make it just as good as a computer if you only use yours for the basics. This is especially true if you consider the portability and convenience of a tablet vs. a clunky laptop or a stationary desktop.
