Rechargeable batteries can save you a ton of money in the long run, but they often tend to cost a lot upfront. Luckily, Amazon Basics has its own batteries that are pretty cheap, and for less than $20, you can grab a 16-pack of rechargeable NiMH batteries with a 2000mAh capacity.
There are a lot of great air fryer deals out there, but this one nets you an excellent one for the price of a few rechargeable batteries. With a two-quart capacity that can prepare up to 1.7 pounds of food, that’s enough to cook for two people, and the 1200W means you don’t have to waste a lot of time preheating it. What we like the most, though, is that it’s not 0nly compact, but it’s easy to clean, as it has a non-stick pan and a dishwasher-safe crisping tray. It also has automatic shutoff, which is probably the most important safety feature you’ll find on any heating or oven device. So even though it’s cheap, it’s still totally safe.
Interestingly enough, automatic toothbrushes, like the Aquasonic Black Series, tend to do a lot better at cleaning your teeth than just manual brushing. The combination of motorized brushing and a special toothbrush head means that it can do a better job of getting leftover food from all the crevices of your teeth, which is important for both tooth and gum health. Even better, this deal comes with an eight-pack of toothbrush heads, as well as a travel case, so you can take it with you wherever you go quite easily, so you have no excuse!
What’s better than getting a new, gorgeous OLED smart TV? Getting one at a discount while also getting free custom wall-mounting and setup from Handy. From now through September 13th, when you purchase an eligible LG OLED TV, you’ll get free wall-mounting service from a Handy professional. That’s up to $130 for TVs 65 inches and above or $90 for TVs 55 inches and under.
The best way to see the qualifying TVs is to head over to LG.com and see what’s available. More importantly, most of them are on sale. For example, theis just $2,800, down from $3,300 – saving you $500. All combined, with the free installation and the discounts already on offer, you’re saving considerably.
If you’re going to be grabbing yourself a toothbrush, having a great water flosser is important, too, especially since these two work in tandem. Luckily, there’s a great deal on the Waterpik Aquarius, which has a 22-ounce reservoir that should give you roughly 90 seconds of use, depending on what strength you set it at. It has 10 different pressure settings you can use and can do 1,400 pulses a second to help clear out even the toughest stuff. Luckily, it also comes with 7 tips so that you can share and encourage your family to have better dental hygiene.
This deal on the cordless TMA vacuum cleaner is probably the most substantial discount on the list here and is a great option if you’re looking for a new vacuum. While it doesn’t quite make our list of best cordless vacuums, it still has a few great features, such as a 20-30 minute run time and up to 15KPA of suction. It also has a sizeable 1.3-liter dust cup, so you don’t have to empty it constantly, and the whole thing comes with a HEPA filter so that you aren’t constantly breathing in fine dust. You also get six different attachments to work with, which makes the TMA cordless vacuum quite versatile and an excellent deal.
If you’re looking for a video doorbell, you can’t go wrong with the Ring Video Doorbell 3, especially if you’re already in the Amazon ecosystem. It comes with a 1080p camera, which is great for most applications, and it runs on an internal battery, so you won’t have to worry about wiring it up, which is a big plus. On the other hand, you will have to detach it to recharge it every few months since it doesn’t have an easy-to-access recharge port, which is a shame. Nonetheless, it comes with all the features you’d expect, such as motion detection and motion zones, two-way communication, and convenient app access.
If you want to add a bit of pizzazz to your home, colored lightbulbs are a great option, and for that, Philips Hue is at the higher end of that spectrum. You get 16 million colors to work with, all controllable from your phone, and you even have more fine-tuned control where you can set bulbs to switch on when you leave and back on when you come back home. You can even sync the bulbs to your music, films, or video games to get a little bit of extra ambient lighting. Best of all, this bundle comes with the Hue Bridge, which lets you do all the fancy stuff mentioned above.
If you’re looking for great budget monitors, this Dell 27-inch is a great option, especially if you’re not interested in higher resolutions like 1440p or 4k, although there is an upgrade option to upgrade to 1440p if you want to. Otherwise, you get a great 1080p resolution with a VA panel, which will be fine for most use cases, although if you want slightly better color reproduction, you could aim for the IPS version instead. The refresh rate sits at 75Hz native, which isn’t a ton, but if you’re gaming on something like the Series S, it’s more than enough and a good budget option. It also comes with AMD Freesync, so if you’re running a budget AMD card, this will help with any vertical sync issues.
If you’re looking for a fitness companion, the Fitbit Charge 5 is both stylish and doesn’t look like a typical bulky smartwatch. It offers nearly the full gamut of wellness tracking, including things like 24/7 heart rate monitoring, sleep cycle tracking, blood oxygen saturation (SPO2) monitoring, and electrodermal activity (EDA) stress level analysis, although it does lack things like manual heart rate capture, which isn’t a dealbreaker. That said, a lot of those features are hidden behind the premium subscription, which will cost you $10 a month or $80 if you go for a whole-year package, although it does come with a lot of great additional features too.
When the original iPhone SE came out, it was a bit of a surprise for a company like Apple that didn’t really focus on low-budget gear. Luckily, it was still a great phone, even if it was budget-oriented, and the latest iPhone SE 3rd Gen is still as good in terms of value. It has 5G, which is impressive at this price point, as well as 64GB of internal storage, and the 4.7-inch Retina HD display is as gorgeous as it always has been. It also comes with the latest A15 Bionic chip, which is one of the best chips that Apple makes, so you’re getting a lot of power under the hood.
Another great budget product that Apple came out with was the Apple Watch SE, which offered some of the same great features of the higher-end Series watches from Apple. It doesn’t have the more advanced health tracking features you’d expect, such as ECG or blood oxygen monitors, but it does come with a heart tracker, as well as overall fitness tracking, such as calorie burning. It also tracks your sleep to let you know how good it was, and the mindfulness app, Breathe, is great if you need help dealing with anxiety or stress. It’s also a great companion to your phone, letting you see and respond to notifications, and given this is a cellular model, you can even make calls independently, which is neat.
Speaking of Apple, if you’d love a great set of earphones but don’t want to grab the Apple AirPods Pro, the Jabra Elite 85t is a great alternative. With a generally neutral EQ, the Elite 85t has a lot of accuracy across the board, which is great for listening to instrumental stuff, although you can certainly push a more bass-heavy EQ if you feel like it too. The overall design looks great, and Jabra has managed to make a set of earphones that are comfortable to wear for long periods of time. As for Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), the Jabra Elite 85t has some of the best in the industry, and it even manages to avoid the weird hissing sound you might hear on the AirPods Pro or WF-1000XM3, which is impressive on its own right.
There’s nothing more disheartening than having to clean the house after a long day working, which is why some of the best robot vacuums help take some of that load off. The iRobot Roomba 694 is a good example, and while it won’t empty itself out, it still has a lot of advanced features like room detection and learning your schedule. It also works great for both carpets and hardwood floors, and it even has a special brush for pet hair, so it’s a great option if you don’t want to be dealing with that. It has about 90 minutes of cleaning time before it takes itself back to charge, which is quite a bit, especially if you don’t have a big home.
If you’re looking for a great budget kit of security cameras, these Blink cameras are a great option, and with a total of five in the pack, it’s one of the best Blink camera deals going right now. With a 1080p camera and the ability to run for quite a long time with AA batteries, the Blink cameras are easy to set up and use. You can then go for two options, either the subscription route for $10 a month that lets you record and save events, or you can go the non-subscription route which still lets you watch live, get alerts, and get two-way audio, which is pretty good even compared to other cameras that have a subscription option.
Smart displays are an interesting piece of tech that adds a bit of versatility to any room, and while Amazon has its own version, if you’re in the Google ecosystem, then the Nest Hub Max is probably the smart display you want to go for. With a 10-inch screen that runs a 1280 x 800 resolution, it’s a great companion to have when cooking or doing other things and running in the background, as well as being a nice alternative to make video calls with. Google’s smart speaker tech is also integrated into the stand, so you get rich and powerful audio with dual 10-watt tweeters and a 30-watt woofer. Of course, there’s also a security aspect to it since you can use it as a camera when you aren’t at home, so it’s a versatile piece of tech that integrates into your Google ecosystem really well.
If you’re in the Apple ecosystem and want some of the best earphones money can buy, then the Apple AirPods Pro 2 is probably what you want to aim for. The 2nd generation comes with a new low-distortion set of drivers and high dynamic range amplifiers with a lot more detailed performance and bass. It also has a surprisingly wide soundstage, which is always nice to listen to compared to the sound being completely inside your head. As for ANC, you probably won’t be surprised to hear that the AirPods Pro 2 has some of the best in the industry, competing at the same level as the Bose’s QuietComfort Earbuds II, which is impressive. As for battery life, you get a total of around 30 hours if you combine the AirPods and the case, which is more than enough for almost everybody.
Smart locks are a great alternative to regular locks, especially if you need to give access to people without handing out keys that can be copied. The Yale Assure Lock 2 is a good example and is easy and quick to install, which is always a big plus. Access from the outside is done through a snazzy-looking touchscreen, and the included app allows you more granular control, such as setting up a permanent password, guest passwords, or even letting the door unlock as you get closer, which is neat.
Probably one of the cheapest TV deals you’ll find on sale this Labor Day that has a lot of great features attached to it. While it doesn’t have a fancy QLED or OLED panel, it does run at 4k and comes with HDR 10, which nets you with some vivid colors and brightness. If you’re already in the Amazon ecosystem, you’ll be happy with the fact that the F30 series is built on the FireTV platform, so you get access to all your Amazon devices and Alexa right on the screen. As for gaming, with a base refresh rate of 60Hz, it’s surprisingly not a bad option, even if playing on the Series X or PS5, which don’t have a lot of games that hit 120Hz refresh.
Tablets have become an important part of modern life, especially as a convenient screen you can carry around with you. Of course, one of the most popular tablets you can get is the iPad, and while they’re usually quite expensive, this 9th-generation iPad is going for a great price. With an A13 chip under the hood and 64GB of memory, it’s a powerful device that can still offer a lot of versatility, even though it’s a couple of generations old. The 10.2-inch Retina display is gorgeous and great for watching content, while the 12MP front camera is great for taking pictures and videos.
The Bose QuietComfort 45 headphones are probably some of the best on the market before you start heading to higher-end gear like the Sony WH-1000XM5. As the name suggests, the QC 45 has great ANC and was industry-leading until the 1000XM5 hit that ball completely out of the park. Even so, at the price point, the ANC is next-level, and when combined with the excellent sound quality that is almost neutral, it’s an excellent pair of headphones to grab if you’re in the market for something.
If you’re looking for great budget laptops, the Dell Inspiron 15 is probably one of the best you’ll find, especially with this Labor Day deal. Under the hood, you’ll find an entry-level 11th Gen Intel Core i3-1115G4, which should still be more than enough for general day-to-day activities and productivity work, making it a great laptop for both school and work. It also comes with 8GB of RAM, which is excellent for a budget laptop and the bare minimum we’d expect, as well as a 256GB SSD for storage, which is also pretty good. The 15.6-inch screen is also great and runs a 1080p resolution, with a peak brightness of 250nits, which should be fine to use anywhere except in sunlight.
If the Apple SE watch didn’t seem like enough of a smartwatch to you, then the Apple Watch Series 8 will, especially since it comes with all the host of features you’d expect from a premium smartwatch. In terms of tracking, you get the full suite of 24/7 heart rate, an ECG with an app to get on-demand ECG readings, a SpO2 sensor for manual and automatic blood-oxygen level tracking, and sleep tracking. It also comes with the new temperature sensor and crash detection, both features which are great if you’re leading a relatively active lifestyle and leave the house often.
The Sony WH-1000XM5 are our top choice for the best headphones because they provide excellent sound and extreme comfort, so you won’t mind wearing them for their whole battery life of up to 30 hours on a single charge. They also offer best-in-class active noise cancellation, which will prevent external sounds from disturbing you, ultra-clear call quality so you won’t miss any important details in your conversations.
If you’re not in the Apple ecosystem, then the Google Pixel Watch is a great smartwatch to pick up, although it’s still an early-generation watch for Google, so it’s not all that it could be. It has both an optical heart rate sensor and a blood oxygen sensor, but it doesn’t have things like temperature sensors or body composition sensors, which is a shame. Luckily, the software is pretty good, and if you use an Android device, it has relatively good integration, even though it might be light overall.
If you have a nice TV at home and are trying to think of the next upgrade for your home theater, then grabbing this great surround sound bundle is the next big step. The whole bundle is built around the soundbar, which has two upward-facing speakers to help create the surround sound from all directions. You also get an extra three speakers to work with behind you, as well as a heft subwoofer to help recreate all the deep bass you wouldn’t get otherwise. It also comes with both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X and has a bitrate of 24bit/96kHz. It also has an HDMI eARC, so you don’t lose a whole port, and the included Bluetooth means you can connect it to your phone and stream directly from there if you don’t want to turn your TV on.
There are a lot of great 65-inch TV deals floating around, but this CU7000 from Samsung is great because it packs some nice features for the price tag. For starters, it comes with a relatively good 4k upscaler, although even then, it’s important to note that results vary wildly depending on the source material. It also comes with various types of HDR, including HDR 10+ and HLG, the latter of which is used by most sports broadcasters, so this is a great TV if you like to watch sports. As for gaming, the CU7000 comes with the Samsung Gaming Hub that lets you play games directly off your TV without a console required, which is a pretty nifty tech.
Dyson is well-known for its bladeless fan designs and has taken that basic concept and applied it to everything, from fans to hair dryers, which is pretty impressive, if we’re being honest. When it comes to the Dyson Purifier Cool, you get a surprisingly good air purifier as well as a fan. The app also affords you a lot of control, as well as providing you with tons of information as well, including the general air quality of the room you’re in. It can oscillate 360 degrees, which can’t be said of most fans, and the filter is relatively easy to change, which is something we always appreciate.
While not the most powerful gaming laptop, the HP Victus 15 is a great entry-level gaming laptop for those who are on a budget. In terms of graphics cards, you get the GTX 1650, which won’t let you play the latest AAA games, but it will likely let you get some indie and casual gaming done, as well as potentially some free-to-play games, especially those optimized to work on lower-end gear. As for the CPU, you get a mid-range Intel Core i5-12450H, a more powerful CPU that can easily handle most productivity and day-to-day tasks, while the 512GB of storage gives you lots of room to save files and store your games.
If you need something portable yet powerful, this Surface Pro 7+ is a pretty strong contender, especially for the price. While it doesn’t have a GPU, it does come with an 11th Gen Intel 13 CPU, which is pretty powerful for a tablet-like device. While it might not compete with fully-fledged laptops, the CPU is more than enough for day-to-day and productivity work, and the 8GB of RAM should be just enough that you aren’t constantly bumping against it’s limit. The only slight downside is potentially the internal storage, which is only 128GB, but you could always supplement it with one of these external hard drive deals if you feel you need a bit more space.
Of course, another alternative for lightweight yet powerful if you’re in the Apple ecosystem is the MacBook Air M1. As the name suggests, it runs Apple’s M1 chip, which is not only powerful but doesn’t require the use of fans, meaning that the whole thing is whisper quiet. The screen is on the smaller end at 13.3 inches, but if you’re looking for something portable, that’s a big plus, and it even has a bit more storage space than the Surface 7+ at 256GB. Probably one of the most impressive things about the MacBook Air is it’s battery life, and you can get about 18 hours out of it, which is a massively long time.
There are a lot of great 75-inch TV deals you can grab, but this Q7 from TCL is pretty special, both for its price and the features packed into it. For starters, it has a QLED panel, which gives you some excellent color reproduction and accuracy, so it’s off to a good start. Even better, the panel has a 120Hz refresh rate, which is perfect for watching sports, action films, and playing with high-end gaming PCs that can really push graphics and framerates. It also comes with several types of HDR, such as HDR 10, HDR 10+, and HLG, the latter of which is used by sports broadcasters, so if you like to watch sports, this TV is perfect for you.
Bring the cinema into your living room with the 85-inch TCL Q6 4K QLED TV. The massive screen offers 4K Ultra HD resolution for sharp details and vivid colors, support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos for a complete theatrical experience, and QLED technology for more realistic images. The TV is powered by the Google TV platform, which not only grants access to all of the most popular streaming services, but also sends recommendations on content that you may like based on your viewing habits.
Labor Day is always a good time to grab appliances, and this Samsung laundry bundle is a perfect example. The top-loading washer is 5.2 cubic feet, so quite spacious and can finish an 8-pound load in about 28 minutes, plus, it has Wi-Fi connectivity and an app that can provide you with alerts and updates, which is pretty cool. As for the dryer, it’s 7.4 cubic feet and has a couple of nice features like Steam Sanitize+ and Sensor Dry, which protect your clothes from wear and tear, and you from germs.
Of course, if you are running the most powerful GPUs on the market, this ultrawide 49-inch monitor from Samsung is pretty amazing. Besides running at a resolution of 1440p, it can also manage to hit an incredibly 240Hz refresh rate, which, combined with its wide screen, makes it perfect for first person shooters, racing games, and really anything that can be done at a competitive level. When you aren’t gaming, you can split the monitor into two 27-inch QHD screens, so you can do editing or productivity work, which we really appreciate. You also get some fancy feautres like HDR2000, G-Sync and FreeSync Premium Pro, low input lag, and fast response time. Really, it has everything you could expect for being at the top of its game.
The original Galaxy Fold Z really launched the whole foldables market in the same way that Apple’s original iPhone launched the smartphone market, and it’s been quite a ride since then. That said, the latest iteration, the Galaxy Z Fold5, isn’t that much of a big improvement on the previous version, with the biggest update being a new hinge design that eliminates the gap when the phone is closed. That means that if you already have a Fold 4, it might not be that big of an upgrade, but if this is your first foldable phone, the Fold5 is probably the best one on the market right now, and is hard to beat.
It’s really hard to innovate on a design that was already pretty great when it started, but Samsung has still somehow managed to make fridges interesting again. This 26.7 cubic feet side-by-side fridge looks plain at first glance, but what sets it appart is the large touch screen on the front door, which gives you a ton of functionality. Beyond just functioning as a whiteboard alternative where you can put up schedules for kids, or photos to look at, it let’s you plan out meals, stream music, and even mirror a TV, so it really makes your fridge a hub of your kitchen, and even your family.
The Razer Blade 15 is sort of like the exotic racing car of the laptop world since it comes packed with the latest tech while still somehow being incredibly small. For starters, it has an RTX 3070 Ti under the hood, which is perfect for 1440p gaming, and an excellent inclusion since the screen is a QHD OLED that can hit a 240Hz refresh rate, which the RTX 3070 Ti should do easily. Then there’s one of the highest-end CPUs on the market, a 12th Gen Intel Core i9-12900H. Combine that with the 16GB of DDR5 RAM, and you can essentially do pretty much anything with this laptop that you can imagine.
Another truly powerful laptop is the Apple MacBook Pro 16 with an M2 Pro chip. It has the most powerful chip that Apple makes, so it’s a complete powerhouse, and perfect if you’re a graphics or video editor and need to do heavy-duty work. It also has a massive 16.2-inch XR retina screen to work with, and 16Gb of RAM that should easily handle most tasks without an issue. As if all of that wasn’t enough, it still has an impressively high battery life, up to around 20 hours depending no your usage, so it’s easily the best Apple laptop on the market.
