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 $25: The egg-stra large egg cooker everyone loves
Whether you meal prep or have a lot of mouths to feed, anything to make cooking a little easier is always welcome. The Dash Rapid Egg Cookers offer an amazingly simple way to make a big batch of hard-boiled eggs perfectly every time. I use mine at least weekly This one holds a full dozen, and right now it's $5 off, marking the best price it's been since Prime Day. You can also soft-boil and poach eggs with this handy and adorable countertop gadget, and it makes omelets!
2. Under $150: A DNA kit that tells you about your health too
If you want to learn what your genetic code has to say about you, a 23andMe DNA test kit might be the answer. Right now, you can get the typically $199 Health + Ancestry kit for $149. This test costs more than others because, in addition to showing you where your roots are, it also looks at your DNA for things like health predispositions for things like Celiac disease, diabetes and Alzheimer's. You can even see if you might be a carrier of any illnesses or conditions, providing an easy way to see if you should visit a doctor and discuss your health further.
3. Save up to $30: Instant Pots in three colors
The Instant Pot is probably the most coveted cooking device out there, and right now you can get the most popular model for a solid discount. The classic black option is $20 off, but you can get the more recently released teal and white models for nearly $30 less than usual. These aren't the lowest prices we've ever seen, but Instant Pots always start to sell out as we get closer to the holiday season. So you can maybe save another $10-$20 if you wait, but you might not be able to get one at all if you do.
If you don't know much about the Instant Pot, the long and short is this pressure cooker makes cooking everything from soups and stews to eggs, yogurt, and cake easy, effortless, and so fast. We've got a handy Instant Pot guide that will walk you through all the basics of getting started if you'd like to learn more before you buy.
4. Save 20%: Lego kits to get a jump on the holidays
If any of the children in your life are into Legos, today is a great day to snag them some fun kits. There are a whole bunch of kits on sale right now, all for 20% off and the best price they've ever been. With so many options there is bound to be at least one, maybe more, that your little loved ones will have a blast putting together. And since they're small kits, there's less of a risk of the parental curse of stepping on one in the middle of the night (we hope).
5. Free: All the books you can read in 2 months
If you have a Kindle (or even just the free Kindle app), and you've never tried Kindle Unlimited, this is the perfect time to give it a go. Right now, new users can get the first two months completely free. Kindle Unlimited gives you access to over 1 million books, thousands of audiobooks through Audible, and the current issues of loads of popular magazines.
This service costs $9.99/month, which is pretty darn good if you are an avid reader, and if you sign up for the free trial, it'll auto-renew and start charging you the monthly fee after your two months is up. But you can always cancel ahead of that and still enjoy the full two months at no charge. Just note that, once you cancel, you will not have access to anything you were reading.
