Finding the best deal on something I really want is a big passion of mine. However, over the years I've learned that not every sale is really as good as it seems. Sometimes products might be hyped, but don't actually do what they say they will. Other times, retailers might push up the price of it right before a sale, so it makes it seem like a better deal.
It's tough knowing what to really jump on. But here at Reviewed, we're skilled at hunting for a good bargain by examining price histories and customer reviews. Even better, we have a team of expert product testers who actually test out the goods. Here are the best deals and sales you can find online Tuesday, April 23.
1. The most popular DNA kit ever is 30% off
It seems like everyone's trying out DNA testing these days, and chances are you've even read a few stories of people discovering relatives they didn't know they had thanks to a testing kit. Right now and until April 25 (which happens to be DNA Day), you can save $30 on a DNA testing kit from Ancestry.com. This is the second lowest price we've ever seen for this kit, and you can get it at a discount on Ancestry's own site as well as on Amazon. If you've ever been curious to unlock the secrets of your DNA, now's the time to try it out.
2. Get the best meat thermometer for 26% off (if you buy two)
Grilling season is about to get underway, and if you love cookouts—or just the taste of deliciously prepared meats, period—then you need a good quality meat thermometer. You can get the ThermoWorks ThermoPop, which is our favorite digital meat thermometer, at a solid discount if you shop ThermoWorks directly. Ordinarily, this digital thermometer costs $34, but they're only $25 each if you buy two. That means you can get one for yourself and another for a friend or loved one. Or you could set this one aside and have it ready for next season, just in case.
3. Get an extra 50% off sale items at Urban Outfitters
For stylish products with a boho flair, Urban Outfitters has plenty of cute pieces that can really add more your wardrobe or decor. Right now, UO is having a mega sale on items that are already on sale, so you can take an additional 50% off them. If you missed Anthropologie's massive sale-on-sale last week, you absolutely don't want to skip on this promotion, since you can still grab some really cute (and highly rated) stuff, like this Harlow Folk Floral Tapestry ($10), this Laurel Floral Duvet Cover ($45), and this wire grid ($49).
4. Save 33% on this popular face cream
This Rose & Pomegranate Face Cream, which touts anti-aging and moisture-restoring benefits especially, has over 4,000 glowing reviews from real shoppers and 4.3 out of 5 stars. In my personal and professional experience, those are super clear indicators of a great product.
Right now, there's a Lightning Deal on this anti-aging facial cream that knocks the price from the usual $19.99 down to $13.49. The deal will be live until 5 p.m. EST unless it sells out sooner, which looks highly possible. And if you do miss it, don't fret. They have a Lightning Deal for this product a few times every month and we'll let you know when it goes on sale again.
5. Save up to 50% on select luggage and bedding at Home Depot
When it comes to buying things like luggage or mattresses, you might think that Home Depot is the place to shop. But the truth is, the retailer actually offers a ton of interesting products that can be perfect for around the house, including luggage sets, bedding, and more. For today only, you can score an amazing deal on select luggage and bedding at Home Depot and save up to 50%.
While the mattresses on sale are a great find if you're looking to save now, the real deal here is with the luggage sets. These are great for any budget—for instance, this 5-piece luggage set from Traveler's Choice ($78.47) is a solid value pick. If you're looking for something mid-range, this 3-piece Omni set from Elite Luggage ($99.97) is a good bargain, while this 3-piece set from Olympia ($128.97) is perfect if you want to splurge.
6. Shop Wayfair's 'Big Rug Sale' and save up to 70%
When it comes to home decor, rugs are everything. They can help set a color palette or tie different elements of a room together, making a space feel more warm and inviting. I personally love a good rug, which is why Wayfair's massive rug sale feels like one of the most exciting things happening right now.
While Wayfair tends to hold a lot of discounts throughout the year, this one is perfect if you've been meaning to invest in a high-quality rug but haven't jumped on one yet. You can get rugs of all sizes, shapes, and designs for as much as 70%, with some 8'x10' rugs for $100 and 5'x8' area rugs for as little as $40, which is a savings too good to miss.
7. Get 50% off with a code on new and clearance items at Avenue
Looking for flattering plus-size fashions that are easy to transition from daytime into night-time wear? Avenue is a terrific option for ready-to-wear attire that can really compliment your curves, and for today only, you can save big shopping the site. Using the code "BLUESKY," you can get an additional 50% off select new tops, bottoms, and clearance items. There's a range of great options to choose from, like these fleece-lined leggings ($7.50), this sheath dress ($17.50), and this lace-trim cami ($14.50). Best of all? You can give your spring wardrobe a nice refresh without dropping a bundle to do it.
