Ah, Tuesday. Of all the days of the work week, this might be the one that gets the least amount of appreciation. On the surface, it makes sense it's the day the feels the farthest from everything that's fun: the weekend, your next payday, your chance to finally sleep in. But if you're shopping online, Tuesday does have an edge, since it's one of the best days for scoping out great deals on Amazon.
Whether you're trying to find new things for around the house or you just want to take your mind off that next assignment with a little retail therapy, you can find some pretty amazing stuff on Amazon today, and for less money than you might ordinarily spend otherwise. Don't believe me? Here are the five discounts you need to swoop in on ASAP this Tuesday.
1. Under $15: This incredibly popular sound machine
Struggle with insomnia? Your mom is right: you need to try a sound machine already. This one from Big Red Rooster is a steal right now, since it's being featured today as one of Amazon's Gold Box deals. It comes with six built-in sleep sounds, so you can snooze during a rain storm or imagine yourself sprawled out on a beach with your sweetie, if you prefer (among other things). These devices help mask background noises, which is huge if you've got kids or obnoxious roommates. Even better, it comes with an auto-off timer and it's totally portable, so you can take it all over. This model has more than 9,000 glowing reviews on Amazon, all while it wasn't our all-time favorite sound machine when we tested a bunch of them, we thought it was a great budget pick at its usual price of around $18. At this low price, I think I speak for everyone at Reviewed when I say, go for it.
2. Lowest price alert: This 28-piece Pyrex set
When I tell you that this Pyrex set is one of the most frequently used things in my home, I'm not kidding. Ever since I got this 28-piece set as a present a few years back, I've been obsessed. I use it for everything: baking, food storage, and even mixing. When I dumped my most recent boyfriend, I told him he could keep my Xbox but made a point of telling him he needed to give me my Pyrex back. That is the level of appreciation I have for this stuff. We dubbed these Pyrex containers our favorite food storage containers for 2019, and right now you can save an extra $5 on it, which is amazing. Trust me, if you've never used Pyrex before, your mind is about to get blown.
3. 20% off: Our favorite sleep mask ever
I used to have a job that required me to work late nights. It was kind of the worst, and since the hours went until 2 a.m. (and sometimes 3 a.m.), it meant I often would have to take mid-day cat naps just to survive a shift. In situations like that, a sleep mask is vital, since it can help block out the sun and make it less distracting to rest. This one from Alaska Bear is one of the best sleep masks we've ever tested if you're looking for luxurious silk, since it extends low and doesn't allow any light to come sneaking in. Right now, you can get it for 20% off thanks to an on-page coupon, so it's definitely a must-grab if you're in need of a better way to fall asleep during the daytime.
4. Under $30: This bidet that'll seriously change your life
Okay, look: it's time we had a real conversation about butts. Specifically, have you ever thought about how terrible it is that we all use super-dry paper to wipe them clean after we're done going to the bathroom? No one likes to talk about it, I know, but we all do it... except maybe we don't have to anymore? Bidets aren't just some fancy thing they have all over the place in Europe—they're actually pretty cheap and easy to install. Case in point: this bidet, which is on sale right now for just under $30. It's one of the lowest prices we've ever seen for this 4.3-star rated model, which has over 1,500 reviews on Amazon. Your butt will probably love it.
5. Save $25: This newly updated Instant Pot
When an Instant Pot goes on sale—specifically one that's new and improved, like this one—we take notice and we don't shut up about it. That's how crazy we are for these things, since they help make meal prepping so much easier, especially for those of us who struggle with healthy meal prep throughout the work week. Right now you can get an Instant Pot Ultra, which is our favorite electric pressure cooker, for the best price we've ever seen: just over $80. This model comes with an easy-to-read screen and simpler dial than the Duo, plus altitude adjustment, a cooking indicator, and a steam release reset button.
