Weekends are made for shopping, lazily from the couch in our PJs while our coffee gets cold and we ignore the TV. Amazon’s got so many deals all the time that we want to help you avoid splurging on a sale that’s not really a sale or getting something crappy that has a too-good-to-be-true price. So we comb through all the offers to find only the best, whether they’re things we’ve tested ourselves and know you’ll love or they’re so adored by other shoppers that you really can’t go wrong.
1. Under $10: This strainer that’s better than a colander

Pasta might be the easiest thing to cook, but actually straining it is the annoying part. But this genius strainer cuts out the middleman by simply snapping to the side of a pot and draining water without losing any precious noodles. While we haven’t tested this product ourselves, but with more than 2,200 reviews and a 4.5 average rating on Amazon, it’s a cult favorite kitchen product. Right now, you can get it for under $10 and one of its lowest prices.
2.Steal alert: One of our favorite streaming devices ever

Tired of streaming your favorite shows and movies from your laptop? Say hello to the Fire Stick 4K, which makes it easy to access Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video, and other channels right on your television. It’s a replacement to the original Fire TV, which is one of our favorite media streaming devices, and comes with 4K, Dolby, and HDR, plus an all-new Alexa voice remote that controls a number of different features. Right now, you can get it for $15 off, which is a steal for streaming your favorite fall TV.
3. Lowest price ever: The best true wireless earbuds we’ve ever used

Apple products almost never go on sale—which, if you’re an Apple snob like me, you probably know—so any kind of price drop feels like a rare thing as it is. A discount on AirPods though, i.e. the best true wireless earbuds of 2019? Sign me up. This sale price has lasted for a few weeks now, but it’s still completely amazing, and saving $14 on a set of earbuds that offer impressive audio quality and ultra-long battery life like this is so totally worth it. Convinced you need a pair yet? Right now, you can get them for $144.99, so do it up now while the sale is still good.
4. Under $200: These noise-canceling headphones with extra bass at their lowest price

Earlier this year, Sony disrupted the noise-canceling headphone market with the release of the WH-1000XM3 noise cancelling headphones. They’re our favorite noise-canceling headphones—even better than Bose’s insanely popular QuietComfort series—and right now, there is a similar pair on sale for a great low price on Amazon. The WH-XB900N headphones are usually $248, but right now you can get them for $50 off, the best price we’ve ever seen. These headphones are $100 cheaper than the XM3s because they don’t feature the same active noise canceling technology. But they still have noise cancelation and also offer extra bass so you can really sink into your beats, as well as 30 hours of battery life, touch controls, and Alexa and Google Assistant connectivity.
5. Best price: A popular tracker for forgetful folks

We love the Tile Mate, a small tracking device that you can attach to your most important—or most often forgotten—personal items. You can use an app on your phone to track your Tiles and ding them to find them when you’ve inevitably lost them. Right now, you can get a 4-pack for its lowest price ever.
