Through tonight, October 30, only, you can this 4.5-star rated 16-treatment pack of Crest 3D Whitestrips, originally $39.99, on sale for $29.99, for a 25% discount. Whenever this kit goes on sale, our readers go wild for it, and it’s no wonder: More than 11,000 Amazon shoppers say it really works, with one writing: “I smoked for seven years and I drink coffee and used to drink a lot of red wine. I have used Crest Whitestrips for something close to a decade … I use these once a week every week and I absolutely see a difference in the shade of my enamel and I have zero sensitivity.”
Teeth whitening strips aren’t the only dental item you can save on, either: Two of our favorite electric toothbrushes—the Oral B Black Pro 7000 and the Oral B Genius Pro 8000—are up to almost $85 off. In testing, we preferred the 4.7-star rated Genius Pro 8000, originally $179.94 and on sale for $94.99. It comes with plenty of fun extras, including an ultra-luxurious travel case and connects to the Oral-B app via Bluetooth.

Sometimes, you just need to twist and shout to a couple good jams—but you need a reliable speaker to do it. Right now, you can snag the best cheap portable Bluetooth speaker we’ve ever tried on sale for one of its lowest prices ever. Originally priced from $29.99, the Anker SoundCore Bluetooth speaker is marked down to $27.99 in black, but you can get it for $21.99 when you click the $6 off on-page coupon. When we tested this 4.6-star rated device, which has more than 45,000 positive reviews on Amazon, we enjoyed that its rectangular design offered 24 hours of battery life and featured big, easy-to-press buttons. Overall, it also offered solid sound quality for the price point. The device has USB charging and an input for a 3.5-millimeter jack, which might strike some more seasoned techies as antiquated, but given the widespread popularity of the SoundCore—not to mention our expert’s rave testimony in favor of the device—it shouldn’t be a major sticking point. This water-resistant Bluetooth portable speaker is a great option with or without a sale going on, so why not try it while you can save a few extra bucks?

It can be hard to find a great pair of headphones for the gym, but according to our testers, Beats’ Solo3 wireless headphones are some of the most stylish and useful that you can buy. Originally priced at $199.95, you can get them through tonight, October 30, only, for $119.95, so you’ll save $80. Available in seven colors, the Solo3s create a seal around your ears, effectively blocking out outside noise, and they’re ideal if you’re looking for bass-heavy headphones. In testing, we found that they can last for close to 40 hours on a single charge. Senior Staff Writer Michael Desjardin also estimates that the Solo3s offer a wireless range between 100 to 120 feet. One downside? If you have sensitive ears, they might be a bit too tight and lead to aches.

5. Save $70: Ring’s newest smart doorbell

Shopping for the best smart doorbells? Right now, you can get two of the latest from Ring—the Amazon-owned maker of some of our favorite picks—on sale for a great low price. As the newest model released by Ring, the 4.6-star rated Ring Video Doorbell 3 Plus, originally $229.99 and on sale for $159.99, offers enhanced privacy controls (i.e., security features such as two-step verification), two-way talk functionality and 1080-pixel high-definition video. You can also choose to either hardwire it to your house or set it up using its removable and rechargeable battery pack, and while it only works with Amazon Alexa, it can be a fantastic investment.
The Ring Video Doorbell 3, originally $199.99, is also on sale for $139.99, so you’ll save $60. According to Staff Writer Rachel Murphy, the most significant difference between these models is that the Ring 3 Plus has “pre-roll”—an innovative video recording feature that captures up to four seconds of activity before motion is ever even detected. Audio isn’t included and the video is in grainy black and white, but Rachel concedes that this function has slowly grown on her. Beyond that, both are comparable and a good value given these price drops.

Season 2 of The Mandalorian arrived on Disney+ today and promises to be every bit as satisfying as the show’s inaugural season was for both casual watchers and Star Wars fans alike. But far and away, the breakaway star of the series wasn’t Game of Thrones alum Pedro Pascal, who stars as the titular Mandalorian—it was Baby freaking Yoda. Right now on Amazon, you can get a super cute, plush toy version of the pop-culture sensation for a great value. Originally priced at $24.99, this 11-inch toy is now just $17.49, so you’ll save 30%. With more than 9,500 glowing reviews on Amazon, this 4.9-star rated stuffie is sure to be a cult-favorite and makes a terrific gift for the kids, boyfriends and coworkers alike. Amazon shoppers are already calling it *the* holiday item to watch in 2020, with some speculating that there’s a big chance this will sell out soon, so grab it while you can.
