So however you're planning on ringing in the long weekend—you may want to consider making a little room in your schedule for some online shopping so you don't miss out on these spectacular chances to save.
If you're curious as to what the best Amazon MLK Day deals are this Friday, you've come to the right place. Ahead you'll find five of the site's top price-slashed products, including popular kitchen gadgets, tech accessories, and more.
1. $10 off: This well-made yet affordable waffle maker
If you have a Leslie Knope-esque affinity for waffles, then a waffle maker is a must-have in your kitchen. They're amazing for churning out large breakfasts for hungry friends and family in little time, but you also want one that's not too bulky so it's easy to store when you're not using it. Typically retailing around $30, this Black+Decker Waffle Maker is a great option if you don't want to shell out a fortune. It was a solid performer when we tested waffle makers because we liked how lightweight it was and found that the waffles consistently came out great. While it's already super affordable, today you can get it for one of the lowest prices we've seen it at—just under $20.
2. 30% discount: This small but mighty Anker power cube
Outlet space is always a hot commodity when you have to charge your laptop, cellphones, and tablets, keep your lamp plugged in, and if you're extra like me, maybe your essential oil diffuser and humidifier. With a zillion things to keep plugged in, it's always nice to have a few extra outlets and USB ports to use, which is why this deal on this Anker Power Cube couldn't have come at a better time. This handy little cube takes up much less space than a bulky power strip, yet it still provides a 3 AC outlets and 3 USB ports, all in one compact hub that's not much larger than a normal plug. Today for only the second time ever, it's down to just under $20.
3. Save $5: This best-selling wireless charging pad
I don't know about you guys, but I've grown very tired of constantly having to replace my charging cables every so often. The wear and tear that they go through is one of the main reasons why many turn to wireless chargers to juice up their phones instead, which offer fast, simple charging without having to deal with a jumbled cord that—let's face it—will likely stop functioning at some point.
One of the most popular options on the market is this Yootech charging pad, which earned an "Amazon's Choice" badge and has a near-perfect 4.7-star rating. It performed well when we tested wireless chargers, and while it wasn't the fastest model we tried, we liked how easy it was to use and how minimal and sleek the design was. Today you can knock $5 off the price tag and nab it for just $12.99, so you can bid adieu to your drawer full of half-working cables.
4. Save $120: This top-rated, powerful blender
Whether you want to blend up a smoothie for breakfast, make some post-gym protein shakes, or make creamy soups this winter, you need a powerful blender to do the trick. This one by Blendtec earned an "Amazon's Choice" badge and has solid reviews across the board for its intuitive blending cycles and self-cleaning abilities, plus it includes a handy spatula to scrape every last drop from the blender. Right now, it's on sale for a crazy low price of just $220, which is markedly lower than what it usually retails for—anywhere from $300 to $400 big ones.
5. Stock up and save: These tablets to clean your dishwasher
Did you know that your cleaning appliances need cleaning too? I know it sounds counterintuitive, but your dishwasher can actually build up a ton of grime, soap scum, and other odor-causing bacteria without regular cleanings, which in turn can make your dishes look and smell dirtier than normal. But with these Affresh tablets that we happened to put to the test quite recently, you can keep this appliance clean by simply popping one in once a month. Right now, you can save a buck and get a 6-pack of these handy tablets for just over $3.
