iRobot Roomba 650, $274


Life’s too short to vacuum every other day, but luckily, you can pawn that tedious chore off to a Roomba, and the entry level 650 model is marked down to $274 today on Amazon, which is $16 less than its previous lowest price. You’ll be able to grab one at Target on Black Friday for a dollar more, but why wouldn’t you just get it now and avoid the craziness?

While it does require a bit of babysitting from time to time, I haven’t vacuumed my house manually in months, and yet the floors always feel clean, even with two pets.

Refurb Dyson V6 Animal cordless vacuum, $230


Get the power, versatility, and customer service of Dyson for $230 today with this refurb Dyson V6 Animal deal. While the original Dyson V6 is more well-known, the Animal model has 75 percent more brush-bar power and comes with a mini motorized tool, mini soft dusting brush, docking station, combination tool, and crevice tool. For under $250, you could have a Dyson that does everything for less than ever.

Gears Of War 4: Ultimate Edition, $60


This could be a mistake, but the Gears Of War 4: Ultimate Edition for Xbox One is only $60 (which is $40 of its normal price) and comes with the physical game, a collectible SteelBook, and a Season Pass. This is probably not something to pass up while the price is this low.

Cuisinart 3-in-1 griddler, $64


Cuisinart’s 3-in-1 Griddler is one of the most versatile kitchen appliances you can own, and it can be yours today for just $64, the best price we’ve ever seen outside of a one-day Gold Box deal.

If you aren’t familiar with this amazing little gadget, it’s a surprisingly large indoor grill, a griddle, and a panini press, all rolled into one. I’ve owned it for over a year and use it on a weekly basis. Why stop with just a griddle, grill, and panini press? Add the optional waffle-iron plates to your cart, and get even more use out of your new toy.


Anker LC130 flashlight, $45 with code ANKERDL1


Anker, producer of a lot of your favorite charging gear, has its own line of flashlights now, and the high-end LC130 is marked down to $45 today with promo code ANKERDL1.

That’s a lot of money to spend on a flashlight, but the LC130 has just about every feature you could possibly want, including IP67 dust and water resistance, 1300 lumens, five lighting modes, and a USB-rechargeable battery that can last up to six hours. If you don’t need it for yourself, this could make a great holiday gift.


Eton FRX5 weather radio with Bluetooth, $50


You never want to be in a situation where you need an emergency weather radio, but when a great model is on sale for $50 in Amazon’s Gold Box, you should probably buy one just in case, especially given recent events.

This Eton FRX5 includes AM, FM, and NOAA radio bands, S.A.M.E. and NOAA automatic weather alerts, a flashlight, a lantern, a hand crank for emergency charging, and a USB port for powering your phone. Hell, it even doubles as a Bluetooth speaker! $50 is the best price Amazon’s ever offered, but it’s only available today.
