GHD Helios Hair Dryer
The Helios is a great option if you want the power and performance of a pricier model but don’t want to spend close to $500. It scored well in our drying speed lab tests but is the loudest model we tried. Even though it was loud in our lab tests, it didn’t sound loud to users at home.
Why it’s a good deal: This is a solid discount for a powerful performer.
Iuga Pro Non Slip Yoga Mat
With a highly grippy surface and a medium amount of cushioning, this is a great mat for novice and experienced yogis alike. Plus, it comes with a carrying strap.
Why it’s a good deal: This is the usual discount. It has been $10 less recently.
Manduka Eko Superlite Travel Yoga Mat
This mat dries quickly and has an excellent grip on the floor. Its dry top surface also offers excellent grip. It has minimal cushioning, as well, which some people prefer.
Why it’s a good deal: This is a nice discount on one of the better mats we tried.
Gaiam Performance Yoga Mat
Consumer Reports tested 19 yoga mats to find out how each one holds up to regular use. Gaiam’s Performance mat aces the drying and grip tests CR put it through but offers somewhat less cushioning. That’s not necessarily a bad thing; a firmer mat can provide more stability for standing poses and can be easier on the wrists.
Why it’s a good deal: This sale price is lower than what we’ve seen for the last few months.
JALL Wake Up Light Sunrise Alarm Clock
The JALL Wake Up Light Sunrise Alarm Clock is at least half the price of other clocks we tested, but from an ease-of-use standpoint, this model comes out on top. It has two independent alarms (so you can set them for different times depending on your routine), seven alarm tones (including “wind bells” and birds chirping), an FM radio, and a fall-asleep mode that simulates a sunset (though no white-noise option).
Why it’s a good deal: Already on the more affordable end, these savings make the JALL an even sunnier option.
Philips SmartSleep Wake-up Light HF3520/60
With the Philips SmartSleep Wake-up Light HF3520/60, you can wake up to one of five nature-inspired sounds or an FM radio. The clock glows with red, orange, and yellow hues that ultimately brightens to a maximum intensity of 300-lux (which you can adjust down, according to your preference). Pressing snooze will temporarily shut off the sound alarm but not the light, which may keep you from falling back asleep (a good thing, if you truly want to wake up).
Why it’s a good deal: Why hit snooze on a discount of $20?
Mzoo Sleep Mask
The Mzoo is affordable, well-designed, and effective at blocking light for most face shapes and head sizes. CR’s team of evaluators had a wide range of preferences and needs, and yet most agreed that the Mzoo mask was a great option.
Why it’s a good deal: Budget-friendly even before a discount (we bought ours for $17 recently), plain, and oh-so-comfortable—what’s not to like?
Slip Sleep Mask
There’s no doubt about it: This popular mask is gorgeous. It’s made with stunning silk fabric, with colors including a lush navy, a graceful ballet pink, and an opulent gold. It has a scrunchy backstrap that stretches rather than adjusts, which allows for a more seamless look (but perhaps an imperfect fit). To that end, some evaluators found that the mask was true to its name and slipped during the night.
Why it’s a good deal: At $10 off, the Slip makes a great gift for that stylish someone in your life—just make sure to get a gift receipt in case it well, slips.
Nidra Deep Rest Eye Mask
While our evaluators were certainly amused by the appearance of this mask, those strange contoured eye cups may be appealing to people with lash extensions or who dislike the feeling of fabric on their lids. However, one evaluator found the material inside the cups a bit rough on her skin, and too wide for her small face. But if your head is average or big, you might love the Nidra mask. The price is good, it offers lots of space for the eyes to flutter freely, and even the appearance can be cool if you consider it from a different perspective.
Why it’s a good deal: We paid $17.95 for our mask, so this is an even better discount from the list price.
Luna Weighted Blanket
On the under $100 end of things, the Luna weighted blanket is a basic cotton option, filled with glass beads. It does not come with a duvet cover, but you have several colors and materials to choose from if you’d like to buy one separately. Luna says you can wash it in cold water on the gentle setting and hang it to dry or tumble-dry on low heat.
Why it’s a good deal: You can take that $20 you saved and spend it on a sleep mask on sale (see above)!
Baloo Living Weighted Blanket
The Baloo weighted blanket has a cotton cover and glass beads. It comes in a few colors— Linen covers, in a choice of six colors, are sold separately. Baloo says the blanket is machine-washable and dryer-safe. You can also get it monogrammed by Baloo (for an additional fee) as a special gift.
Why it’s a good deal: This blanket is usually on the pricier end, so saving up to $75? That’s a nice chunk of change.
Hum by Colgate Smart Electric Toothbrush
This toothbrush from Colgate does a very good job at teeth cleaning, and it comes with a timer to help ensure you brush your teeth for the full recommended two minutes. Its battery life and ease of use are outmatched by some other electric toothbrushes, but it will get the job done.
Why it’s a good deal: This is a great price if you’re curious to try an electric toothbrush.
Oral-B iO 7 Series
The Oral-B iO Series 7 Electric Toothbrush is an excellent toothbrush that does a great job at cleaning. It has five cleaning modes, a brushing timer, a pressure sensor that can tell you when you’re pushing the brush against your teeth too hard, and top-notch battery performance.
Why it’s a good deal: This 32 percent discount is a great reason to upgrade your oral care, and the on-page coupon knocks another $15 off that price for an ever better price.
Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Smart HX9903/01
The Philips Sonicare DiamondClean smart toothbrush does a great job keeping teeth free of plaque. It offers five cleaning modes and a built-in timer. All the colors of this toothbrush are on sale, though the steepest discount is on pink. The sonic brush head is a great option for those who prefer a more traditional shape of toothbrush (rather than a round, rotating brush).
Why it’s a good deal: This is already one of the better sales available, and the on-page coupon takes another $6 off the price.
Adidas Don't Rest Alphaskin Sports Bra
The Adidas Don’t Rest Alphaskin Sports Bra is a traditional compression style, with a racerback and no adjustable features. The racerback is made with a thin, loosely knit material that’s ultra-breathable. It offers a great fit for some, but the long, nonadjustable straps limit its audience to those with longer torsos.
Why it’s a good deal: This is a solid discount, and it’s available for similar prices in a few color options.
Champion Everyday Sports Bra
This adjustable sports bra from Champion is almost like a T-shirt bra, with its defined, lightly padded cups, and indeed, it can double as a T-shirt bra if desired. It has adjustable, convertible straps and three sets of hooks in the band, and comes in sizes XS to 2XL. It’s on the plain side, stylewise, but it’s budget-friendly, versatile bra that one Consumer Reports evaluator still wears regularly.
Why it’s a good deal: It has been on sale at Amazon for $24 for months, but we’ve never seen the price dip this low.
The Peloton exercise bike is CR’s top-rated bike, and it’s hard to beat at its original price, and is a great deal with a discount. It’s a compact bike that’s highly adjustable, and connects to Peloton’s service for a large library of workouts.
Why it’s a good deal: This is the best price we’ve seen for the Peloton.
Bowflex SelectTech 552
This Bowflex Adjustable Dumbbell set has a good hand grip and lots of weight settings in the lower ranges—which makes these weights a good option for those who are toning or just beginning to use dumbbells. The dumbbells remain the same length at all weights, which can require some adjustments to range of motion for certain exercises.
Why it’s a good deal: This beats the previous sale price for this model $80.
The Schwinn IC4 exercise bike offers plenty of features, including a highly useful interface, an arm-band heart rate monitor, and included dumbbells with built-in dumbbell holders. It’s super quiet and easy to assemble. As long as you don’t mind using your own exercise apps rather than a subscription service like Peloton’s, this bike already makes a great, affordable alternative to pricier connected bikes.
Why it’s a good deal: This 20 percent discount mans you save $200.
Bowflex Treadmill 10
This folding treadmill comes with quick, easy-access speed and incline controls—and four cup holders, in case you prefer to run with multiple beverages.
Why it’s a good deal: At $1,500 off its full price, this well-rated treadmill is not to be missed.
Apple Watch SE (40mm) GPS
Apple introduced an updated version of its high-value SE watch in September, which has triggered a series of solid deals on the first-generation Watch SE. The first-gen SE uses a less powerful processor than the new model, but it performs most of the functions that make the SE one of our highest-rated smartwatches. The major difference between the prior-gen SE and the Apple Watch Series 8 is that it lacks a blood oxygen sensor that helps boost sleep tracking accuracy, as well as a temperature sensor that can provide retroactive estimates of ovulation. The prior-gen SE also lacks the high-speed G-force sensor that can sense if you’ve been in a car crash, a feature found on the latest SE, which starts at $249. But on your wrist, the first-gen SE is almost identical to the new SE or even the Series 8.
Why it’s a great deal: You won’t find a better price for a new Apple Watch.
Samsung Galaxy Watch4 (44mm)
The Samsung Galaxy Watch4 has a bright 1.3-inch AMOLED display that can showcase a variety of interesting watch faces. The model has a mic and speaker for handling phone calls. It offers a robust suite of health and fitness options, including a blood oxygen sensor, ECG monitoring (that could detect irregularities in heart rhythm), and even a sensor that’s claimed to measure body fat. It works best if you have a Samsung Android phone because that gives you access to all the Samsung Health features.
Why it’s a good deal: Best Buy has the lowest price we’ve seen for the watch, beating the previous low by $30.
The lightweight and stylish Fitbit Luxe looks more like jewelry than a straight-up fitness tracker, and it performs well on basic functions. The device earns high ratings for both ease of use and counting steps, and it includes the stress-tracking features found on the more expensive Sense smartwatch. It isn’t quite as good as other models when it comes to heart rate tracking, though. And the tiny screen can be tough to read, especially for people who have trouble seeing up close.
Why it’s a good deal: We’ve seen this model on sale for $80 at multiple retailers in recent weeks but this price is one of the lowest yet.
Garmin Forerunner 35
While technically a fitness tracker, the Garmin Forerunner 35 offers a watchlike feel. You get a 1.3-inch monochrome display that shows your step count and heart rate. The Forerunner 35 has a built-in GPS and a claimed battery life of nine days, and we found in our testing that it makes good on its water-resistance claim of 164 feet. CR testers give the fitness tracker top marks for heart-rate tracking and step-count accuracy, as well as ease of use.
Why it’s a good deal: Walmart’s price is back to the lowest we’ve seen.
Bose Sport Open Earbuds
Music is great while you’re working out, but cutting yourself off from your environment isn’t always convenient—or safe. Enter the Bose Sport Open Earbuds. This true wireless model has a non-isolating design that lets in outside sound on purpose, so you should have an easier time hearing traffic approaching when you’re on a run.
They have hooks to keep the earbuds in place while you move around, and they sit on rather than in your ears, which some people find more comfortable. And these headphones deliver above-average sound quality. According to Bose, they have an 8-hour battery life and a quick-charge feature for 3 extra hours after 30 minutes of plug-in time. But unlike most true wireless headphones, this model’s carrying case doesn’t double as a portable charger.
Why it’s a good deal: A 40 percent discount is always worth a look.
Bose QuietComfort Earbuds
The Bose Quiet Comfort true wireless earbuds get top marks from our testers for noise cancellation, which you can turn up or down to suit your environment. while delivering above-average sound quality. They have a number of other appealing features, such as built-in tech that the company says makes it easier to hear your own voice during phone calls, and an auto-pause feature.In our latest member survey, Bose earns outstanding ratings for reliability and owner satisfaction. Note that Bose has just introduced new $299 Quiet Comfort Earbuds II that promise better performance including improved noise canceling–we’ll be testing that claim in our labs.
Why it’s a good deal: Bose models rarely go on sale so this unusual discount is worth considering, though the discount seems triggered by the introduction of the next-gen model.
Skullcandy Dime True Wireless
These earbuds offer remarkable performance for the price. Above-average sound quality and a decent battery life make them a good budget pick.
Why it’s a good deal: These earbuds are already very affordable at full-price so a 23 percent discount is just an added bonus.
Sennheiser CX Plus
The Sennheiser CX Plus offers really good value in a true wireless noise-canceling earbud. According to our testers, the sound quality is more than solid, while the active noise-canceling performance is among the best we’ve tested and includes a transparency mode so that you can hear traffic while you’re walking. Some users might find the buds a bit bulky, but our testers found the fit to be fine for most users.
Why it’s a good deal: This deal puts the CX Plus earbuds significantly below their list price.
This Ninja BL770 Mega Kitchen System is both a blender and a food processor that ranks in the middle of CR’s ratings. It earns above-average scores for making icy drinks like smoothies, as well as for puréeing soups. However, it’s a bit noisy. The 8-cup-capacity chopper has convenient touch-button controls and three speeds, and comes with accessories including a dough blade, a blender attachment, and a recipe book.
Why it’s a good deal: This is the lowest sale price we’ve seen for this blender.
Calphalon Auto-Speed BLCLMB1
Though this blender isn’t among our top-rated, the Calphalon Auto-Speed BLCLMB1 is one of the most reliable models in our tests. The 1,100-watt blender comes in dark stainless steel with a 68-ounce BPA-free Tritan jar, plus a 25-ounce smoothie cup you can take on the road. It weighs 8 pounds and has a pulse option and a removable blade.
Why it’s a good deal: At 31 percent off, this is a good discount for this model.
Stasher Silicone Reusable Storage Bags
Stasher bags fared well in our at-home evaluation of five silicone food storage bags. This bag protects food from freezer burn, has a strong seal that prevents leaks, and bounces back from food stains—something most other bags couldn’t do. The weight of the bag is printed on it, so grocers can tare the weight of your bulk foods during checkout. Stasher bags come in a variety of sizes and colors, and others may be on sale.
Why it’s a good deal: These reusable bags are a good value and a sustainable way to prep healthy snacks to grab on the go.
