1. 40% off: Our favorite affordable smart robot vacuum
With more and more sun peeking into the windows of our homes, it's getting easier and easier to see dust and crumbs that have left behind on carpets and floors. To make the pickup of these remnants a bit smoother, there's the eufy by Anker BoostIQ RoboVac 30C, which is currently available for 40% off. Originally $299.99, this Wi-Fi friendly robot vacuum is at a $120 price cut at $179.99. We named the 30C the best-valued robot on the market for its easy set-up and effective dirt pick-up—it sucked up roughly 10 grams of dirt per run. With the purchase of the 30C, customers can control the vacuum manually or set a scheduled cleaning time with the accompanying app. It also has boundary strips, so you can keep it from wandering into areas you don't want it to go.
2. A 23% discount: This Wi-Fi-compatible thermostat
Earth Day is nearly upon us (it's Thursday, April 22), and there's no shortage of companies trying to do their part to save the planet. Among them? Google, which is working to cut down on energy use (and your bills!) with its Google Nest thermostat, now available at a 23% discount. Regularly listed at $129.99, the Nest is now available for $99.99 in neutral Snow and Sand hues. While its more high-tech brother, the Nest Learning Thermostat (from $222.22), was our pick for the best smart thermostat of the year, we also thought this more basic Nest was a solid pick for its smartphone-friendly interface and voice assistant compatibility. It even has an Energy Star rating from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its eco mode, home/away assist and airwave mode, which Google claims can save homeowners 10 to 12% on heating bills and up to 15% on cooling costs.
3. Nearly half off: This 39-inch foldable computer desk
Mother's Day is just around the corner, and one way to salute the hard-working matriarchs of the world is to make their workspaces a bit more convenient. This stylish and compact working desk from Vecelo is compact enough at just over 39 inches to fit most walls and corners. It's also currently at a 48% discount from its listing price of $89.99 at $46.47. Customers have praised the desk for its simple set-up process and ability to handle everything from monitors to office supplies of up to 220 pounds. On top of that, the desk's support legs can be folded in for transport to new locations or even storage when it's not in use.
4. $10 off: This sun-friendly hat
The trails and the campgrounds are finally clear of snow, which means it's time to get back out there and explore nature once more. But even in spring, the weather can change on a dime, and any outdoor enthusiast should be prepared when it comes to their clothing. That's why there's this unisex Columbia Bora Bora booney will be a great pick to have on hand for any and all forecasts. Usually $30, it's now on sale for as low as $17.38 in the Fossil white shade. According to the company, this nylon topper is designed to block out UVA and UVB rays, even on the sunniest days. It also has "Omni-Wick technology" to help transfer any moisture from the skin to the fabric. The cherry on top? A mesh, breeze-inducing vent, so you can feel the wind when it rolls through.
5. Less than $25: This popular selfie light ring with nearly 15,000 reviews
Be honest: How many angles have you tried to get just the right lighting for the perfect selfie or Zoom call?
