1. A 16% markdown: This mini Nespresso machine
If you've been eyeing a brand-new espresso machine but don't know where to start, the Nespresso Essenza mini espresso machine might be the perfect option. It typically retails at $149, but you can grab it at the e-retailer for $124.99 for a 16% discount. This compact model was featured in our roundup of the best Nespresso machines thanks to its space-saving size, good-quality coffee and affordable price point (our No.1 pick, the Nespresso VertuoPlus, is $179). Despite the fact that it's far smaller than any other Nespresso machine we tested (the water reservoir holds just enough for 10 shots of espresso, so you'll likely need to change it daily), we were still thrilled with its crema-topped shots and attractive aesthetic.
2. Half off: This top-rated smart speaker with a display
Dubbed as one of our favorite Amazon smart speakers, the Echo Show 5 is a truly awesome device. Not only does it function as a speaker that can blast tunes, podcasts and videos via Amazon Music, Spotify, YouTube and others, it's got a 5.5-inch display screen that allows you to check the time, follow step-by-step kitchen recipes and more. Built-in Alexa compatibility, meanwhile, allows you to ask about the weather, show movie trailers or news headlines of the day. Our tester hailed it as their favorite machine in the Echo lineup, finding its display, sleek design and modest-sized speaker (1.65-inches) to be quite impressive, indeed. We also liked that you can use it to stream smart cameras, video baby monitors and video doorbells. Once $89.99, this much-loved model has been marked down by a solid 50% to $44.99.
3. 60% off: Our best value pick for pillows
If your 2021 resolution was to catch more shut-eye, you'll definitely want to nab our best value pick for pillows, the Beckham Hotel Collection gel pillow. Normally $79.99, Amazon has slashed the price of this two-pack down to $39.99, but you can click the additional 20% coupon beneath the price to grab 'em for $31.99 for a whopping 60% in savings. In testing, we found that these pillows provided excellent support—especially for side sleepers. Even after sleeping on them overnight, they bounced back well the following morning, despite being among the fluffier pillows we tested. The material also didn't crinkle from the heated blanket we used in tandem. In general, we were pretty happy with the quality of this pick, and thought they would be great options for a guest room or those who prefer to change their pillows out regularly.
4. Save 18%: This Reviewed-approved bath mat
When we tested out the Momentum shag bath mat, it was a clear winner. The 17-inch by 24-inch size is made from soft, microfiber bristles that, while not the most absorbent, are designed to dry quickly and be stain-resistant. Its fluffy material felt super cozy on our feet, and it's machine washable (though you'll want to be sure to line-dry it). This mat typically retails for $29.99, but you can grab it for $24.69 right now, which is 18% off its original price.
5. Down 60%: This super slim wireless keyboard
If you're looking for a keyboard that's compact and portable, the Arteck HB030B is probably your best bet. When we tested this baby out, we loved that its super thin and lightweight size, plus, it's compatible with Windows, Mac and Android devices. Although the layout wasn't the best one we tried (due to its smaller size, our tester's hands cramped up from time to time), the company claims that it can run for up to six months on a single charge. As an added bonus, it has a handy multi-colored backlight that you can change its multi-colored settings with ease. Grab this minimal keyboard for $19.99, saving you $30 from its usual $49.99.
