Street Price: $465 MSRP: $500 Deal Price: $350
An excellent drop, matching the lowest price we’ve seen, on our top portable air conditioner pick. The Whynter Elite ARC-122DHP is usually well above $400 and hasn’t seen a price this low since a drop in the spring that was followed shortly thereafter by a shortage of stock. As it seems there’s still plenty of warm weather left in many places, it’s a great time to pick one up for now or next summer. Shipping is free.
The Whynter Elite ARC-122DHP is our top pick in our guide to the best portable air conditioner. Liam McCabe and Tyler Wells Lynch wrote, “After putting in 45 hours of research, comparing more than 100 portable air conditioners and testing seven of the best models, we recommend the Whynter Elite ARC-122DHP. We think this dual-hose unit will cool a room faster than other portable ACs, using the least energy, even in extreme heat. It’s significantly smaller and lighter than its closest competitors, and it has a typical noise level, installation kit, and price. It also has a built-in heater and a drain pump.”
Street Price: $116 MSRP: $116 Deal Price: $96
Update: You can also purchase just 1 container of this Whey protein for $50 via another promotion ($50 price reflects in cart) if you’d prefer to to go that route.
An interesting promotion that gets you $20 off a $60 or more purchase of select supplements. Among those supplements is our top whey protein powder, which presently costs $58 (on the high side, historically, for one container). However, if you buy 2, you exceed $60, resulting in the $20 discount (reflects in cart) and a price of $96, or $48 each, a decent drop and just $2 higher than the low we’ve seen in recent months of $46. If you’re one who buys whey protein powder in bulk, this is a nice opportunity to get a savings of $10 a container. Shipping is free.
Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey (Extreme Milk Chocolate) is our top pick in our guide to the best whey protein powder. Shannon Palus wrote, “We spent more than 20 hours reading research papers and speaking with experts to find out what makes a great protein powder. We then carefully considered the ingredients lists of more than two dozen protein powders made with whey. Finally, a panel of testers tried four different preparations of 10 powders in a blind taste test to find the standouts in a field that is usually barely palatable. Although all the powders we tested were very sweet, we found that Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard 100% Whey will appeal to the most people with its relatively mild flavors and lack of aggressive aftertaste, while offering a cost- and calorie-effective amount of protein.”
Street Price: $60 MSRP: $120 Deal Price: $44
A great price on our budget stovetop pressure cooker pick. Usually $30 cheaper than our top stovetop pressure cooker pick at around $60, right now the Presto 8-Quart is down to $44, half the cost of that pick and well worth a look for those looking to try out pressure cooking. Shipping is free.
The Presto 8-Quart Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker is our budget pick in our guide to the best pressure cookers. Lesley Stockton wrote, “If you’re curious to see whether pressure cooking is right for you, but you aren’t ready to drop over $100, the stovetop Presto 8-Quart Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker is a good starter pot. It has just one pressure setting, but it decently sears meats, sautées aromatics, and delivers well-cooked dishes. Its recessed pressure indicator is a little harder to see, so you need to keep a close eye on this pot to know exactly when to turn off the heat. But if you don’t mind being a little more attentive, this is a solid pressure cooker, and like the rest of the stovetop models we recommend it will double as a regular pot without the lid.”
Street Price: $43 MSRP: $43 Deal Price: $31
A nice open-box deal on our probe thermometer pick in a variety of colors. While we saw the white color only sold for $31 ($27 + $4 shipping) during the last Thermoworks sale, this one provides the same price on all available colors, albeit in open-box form (all open-box items sold via ThermoWorks include the standard ThermoWorks warranty). Grab one in a color of your choice while you can as these sales rarely last long.
The ThermoWorks Dot probe thermometer is our top pick in our guide to the best probe thermometer. Michael Sullivan writes, “We recommend the affordably priced ThermoWorks Dot probe thermometer for its impressive accuracy and ability to read temperatures quickly. Compared with the others we tested, it was the easiest thermometer to use, thanks to its simple, intuitive design and large digital display. The Dot’s wide temperature range makes it ideal for both oven and grill use.”
Street Price: $40 MSRP: $50 Deal Price: $32
A great discount on our mini option pick for best food processor and the lowest price we’ve seen. We normally see this food processor between $40 and $50 dollars when it’s in stock, so this drop down to $32 is an excellent deal. It’s available in a variety of colors (price reflects in cart). However, there is a slight catch – because the discount drops it below the $35 minimum for free shipping, in order to get the $32 price, you either need to be a REDcard member (free to join, drops price an additional 5%) to get free shipping or pick it up at a Target near you.
The KitchenAid 3.5 Cup Mini Food Processor is our mini option in our guide for the best food processor. Chrystine Cyr Clisset and Michael Sullivan wrote, “If you want a mini food processor to make small batches of mayonnaise or mirepoix, we recommend the affordably priced KitchenAid 3.5 Cup Mini Food Processor. It chopped vegetables more evenly than the other mini models we tested. On top of that, its handled jar with push-button activation was the most convenient to use. And it’s a great option for people who can’t or don’t want to invest in a $200 machine. You can’t knead bread dough or shred ingredients in it, but you can grind or chop small portions of vegetables or nuts, which would be more tedious by hand.”
Street Price: $120 MSRP: $200 Deal Price: $100
At $100, this Rowenta iron is back to one of its lowest prices. While we’ve seen more regular discounts in recent months, the DW9280 rarely ever drops more than a dollar or two below this price. This discount bests some of the pricing we saw in early July by a few dollars, matches an incredibly short-lived late July deal, and is only a dollar more than the deal we saw a few weeks back. If you’re in need of a high-end clothes iron, this is a fine price and a quality pick-up. This item ships free.
The Rowenta DW 9280 SteamForce Iron is our upgrade pick in our guide to the best clothes iron. Jackie Reeve writes, “For the second year in a row, the Rowenta DW 9280 SteamForce iron, our upgrade pick, was the best overall at wrinkle busting. It melted creases out of linen napkins and pressed quilt seams with almost no effort. We’ve never seen an iron give off more steam. But it’s heavier and much more expensive than our top pick and runner-up, so we would recommend it for crafters, sewers, and those with busy households and/or tons of laundry—i.e., anyone willing to make the investment to save time and energy.”
Street Price: $60 MSRP: $100 Deal Price: $50
Whether you live in an apartment without a cooktop, are so busy in the kitchen you regularly use all of your burners, or just need a portable one, this is a good price on the Duxtop Secura 1800W Portable Induction Cooktop. At $50, this matches the lowest we’ve seen this single burner and is around $10 less than the usual street price. Shipping is free.
The Duxtop 8100MC Induction Cooktop is our top pick in our guide to the best portable induction cooktop. Michael Sullivan writes, “If you need an extra burner for your kitchen, the reasonably priced Duxtop 8100MC Induction Cooktop is the best that we tested. While it was not a leader in all of our tests, it ranked high in all of them and lacks any glaring drawbacks. It has a straightforward control panel that allows you to easily adjust the power mode, temperature, and timer. The Duxtop boils water quickly and cooks foods faster than other models we tested. The Duxtop also comes with a number of user-friendly safety features to prevent overheating, or to alert you if you accidentally use the wrong pan. Also, the single ceramic-glass top on this model makes cleanup a cinch.”
Street Price: $600 MSRP: $600 Deal Price: $470
Update : We didn’t think this vacuum would drop any lower but it has. It’s only by an extra $10, but that just makes it an even better price to pick it up at.
If you’re looking to make a long-term investment in one of the best vacuums money can buy, this is a great opportunity to do so. Usually $600, the Miele Compact C2 Electro+ Canister Vacuum is down to $480, the lowest price we’ve seen for it. It’s a price that seems unlikely to stick around long, so pick one up at this price while you can. Shipping is free.
The Miele Compact C2 Electro+ Canister Vacuum is our upgrade pick in our guide to the best vacuums. Liam McCabe wrote, “If you’re willing to upgrade to a vacuum that can clean the heck out of your home and last for decades, buy one of the models from the Miele C2 or C3 canister series. Every industry expert we’ve spoken to (even some from competing brands!) has told us that these are excellent vacuum cleaners, and a few technicians said that they’re simply the best you can buy. The filtration is also about as good as it gets, and these are among the quietest vacuums anywhere. The models we picked are two of the most popular configurations (out of about a dozen versions). These aren’t cheap, but they can last so long—20 years, in some cases—that each one is an excellent long-term value for a machine that’s an impressive performer and a pleasure to use.”
Street Price: $20 MSRP: $25 Deal Price: $15
This is an excellent price and the second lowest price we’ve seen on our budget slow cooker. If you’re looking to grab an affordable slow cooker for tailgating or get one for the holidays, this is a great opportunity to pick one up. At $15, it’s $5 off the street price and we haven’t seen it lower in a few years. Shipping is free with Prime.
The Crock-Pot 4-Quart Manual Slow Cooker is our budget pick in our guide to the best slow cooker. Christine Cyr Clisset, Camille Chatterjee, and Lesley Stockton wrote, “If you’re fine with a small, old-school slow cooker without bells and whistles (like a timer), the Crock-Pot 4-Quart Manual Slow Cooker should serve you well. It has excellent user reviews and a low, low price to boot.”
Street Price: $115 MSRP: $200 Deal Price: $95
A rare sale on a great showerhead. We’ve had Delta showerheads as our picks for a few years now, and the $95 range is about as cheap as they ever get. The best price we’ve seen on this model was $92, and that was only available for a few days in April.
The Delta In2ition 58480 is our top pick in our guide to the best showerheads. Tim Heffernan wrote, “The Delta In2ition 58480 combines the simplicity of a wall-mounted showerhead and the utility of a handheld—switching between them is a matter of holstering or drawing the handheld unit. At 2 gallons of water per minute, it meets the strictest federal efficiency guidelines, yet delivers satisfying results on multiple spray settings, from a gentle “rainshower” to a powerful massage. The 58480 replaces this guide’s former handheld pick, the similar Delta 58471, an excellent product many of our readers and a few editors use and love. This new Delta is more efficient than the other one’s 2.5 gpm, and its gentler spray options are more comfortable, which really helps when bathing kids or pets. The hardware installs in seconds with only an adjustable wrench, and includes a flexible, stretchable, tough stainless steel hose—superior to competitors in its price range, which often have stiff, non-stretch plastic hoses or complex installation requirements. It’s not cheap, but given its mix of practicality, pleasure, and top-shelf components, we consider it a worthy value.”
Street Price: $49 MSRP: $39 Deal Price: $33
Update: This promo has changed and now offers a $5 gift card after the purchase of 2 laundry and paper items. This detergent is still eligible for the new promo, as are couple versions of our paper towel pick, Bounty Select-A-Size. It’s a somewhat less appealing deal but still a solid one, especially for REDcard holders.
Another nice deal on our top pick for laundry detergent, and while it’s a dollar higher than our post last month, we rarely see this detergent move from it’s $13 price, so this $2 drop in price is still very good. In addition, this detergent is part of a promotion that gets you a $10 Target gift card if you purchase any 3 (or 3 of any one) of a select list of household goods. A few of our picks are on the list, including our runner-up toilet paper, Charmin Ultra Strong, and our top paper towels, Bounty Select-A-Size. If you hit $35 dollars, shipping is free. REDcard holders get free shipping and an additional 5% off.
The Tide Ultra Stain Release Free is our top pick in our guide to the best laundry detergent. Leigh Krietsch Boerner wrote, “Because it performed incredibly well at removing both stains and smells, Tide Ultra Stain Release Free won our recommendation. This premium-priced formula from the most dominant brand in the laundry detergent aisle justifies its place at the top: It had excellent results on seven different stains in cold water, plus came in second overall in our odor-removing tests. That combo was a winner in our eyes. In many of our tests, this Tide formula beat the competition and usually came in second or third when it wasn’t first.”
Street Price: $35 MSRP: $50 Deal Price: $30
Update 2 : The base price has dropped again and this iron is back to $30 with the on-page coupon.
A great price on this iron after clipping the 15% off on-page coupon. Once the coupon is clipped, the price of the D3030 Allure drops to $30, beating our posted low from last month by a dollar. Our previous top pick, we moved this iron into our runner-up slot when some long term reliability concerns arose, but at $30, it’s well worth a purchase, even if it may be a shorter term investment than irons that cost two or three times as much. Shipping is free.
The Black+Decker D3030 Allure Steam Iron is our runner-up pick in our guide to the best clothing iron. Jackie Reeve wrote, “The Allure is a fantastic, cheap iron—while it works. This was our prior top pick, but after a year, our test model’s heating element broke. Because of its two-year warranty, we easily traded it in for a replacement (which we then tested). Despite misgivings about its reliability (multiple reviews on Amazon confirm durability is an ongoing problem), we still recommend the Allure if you can’t get the Maytag. It creates a good amount of steam, its stainless-steel soleplate glides smoothly across a variety of fabrics, and our testers agreed that the handle felt the best to hold and use. If you don’t mind replacing a good iron every year or so, this one is still a top performer.”
Street Price: $60 MSRP: $115 Deal Price: $39
Update 2 : This dutch oven is back in stock at the deal price in Emerald Green. The Lagoon Green and Purple prices have jumped back up.
While we’ve featured this deal recently, it was largely only available in purple. If you weren’t a fan of purple and were waiting for a different color option, you’re in luck. Our top dutch oven is currently available in Emerald Green and Lagoon Green, as well as that persistent purple. Stock can be sporadic on these dutch ovens, so it’s hard to say how long this deal will last, but the less popular colors stick around for longer.
The Lodge Color Enamel 6-Quart is our top pick for the best dutch oven. Kevin Purdy and Ray Aguilera wrote, “The Lodge Color Enamel Dutch Oven is our top pick, because it cooks stews just as well as other Dutch ovens selling for four times the price. The Lodge’s shape works well for most cooking tasks, and the light interior makes it easy to determine browning. It produced one of the best stews, with well-browned meat and a flavorful, concentrated liquid. The enameled interior is easy to clean, and the oven has ample handles that make a big difference when cooking large recipes that may make the oven heavy to carry.”
Street Price: $275 MSRP: $300 Deal Price: $208
Update 3 : Now down an extra $12 to $208.
A great price and a new low for the Fissler Vitaquick Pressure Cooker. This stovetop pressure cooker has largely hovered between $270 and $280, so at $220 you’re getting a significant discount on an item for those serious about pressure cooking. Shipping is free.
The Fissler Vitaquick 8.5-Quart Pressure Cooker is our upgrade stovetop pick in our guide to the best pressure cooker. Lesley Stockton writes, “If you’re looking for an exceptional stovetop pressure cooker with a smoother locking lid and superior browning capabilities, the Fissler Vitaquick 8.5-Quart Pressure Cooker is the best we tested. The tri-ply base is thicker and wider than the Fagor Duo’s, and offers the best browning and searing of any pot we tried, leaving us with no scorch spots in the edges of the pot. The Fissler is on the heavy side, but it offers an easy-to-grasp helper handle for added support when transporting. Yes, the Vitaquick is pricey, but if you’re serious about pressure cooking, it’s money well spent.”
Street Price: $20 MSRP: $25 Deal Price: $13
If you have a Sears in your area, this is a great deal on a screwdriver that usually costs substantially more. The Craftsman Ratcheting Ready-Bit Screwdriver is usually priced in the neighborhood of $20 and often sees pricing even higher. This deal drops the price to $13, but the screwdriver is only available for store pickup at this time. Those willing to make the trip can get a nice discount as this is the lowest we’ve seen this item.
The Craftsman Ratcheting Ready-Bit Screwdriver is our runner up pick in our guide to the best multi-bit screwdriver. Doug Mahoney writes, “The Craftsman 9-41796 Ready Bit Screwdriver(about $23) shares many features with the MegaPro including the easy storage and the freely spinning rear cap1, but there are a few ways it is different. The Craftsman has a roller bearing ratchet mechanism and not a toothed gear, so there’s no click-click-click while it’s resetting. This means the turn can be re-set at any point on the rotation, so it engages with barely any twist of the handle at all.”
Street Price: $23 MSRP: $25 Deal Price: $19
Update : This bathroom rug has gone up a dollar to $19. It’s still a decent price, but not a great deal if it goes any higher than this.
A new low and a nice price on all five colors of this recommended bathroom rug. At $18, this is the lowest we’ve seen this rug, which usually sits between $20 and $25. At this cost, we think that the price relative to our top pick (usually $30) make this a nice pickup. Shipping is free with Prime.
The Momentum Home Modern Bath Premium Bathroom Rug with Non-slip Backing is a bathroom rug we like in our guide to the best bathroom rugs and mats. Alex Arpaia writes, “The Momentum Home Modern Bath Premium Bathroom Rug with Non-slip Backing absorbs water as effectively as our main pick and dries a little more quickly, but between the synthetic fibers and the nonskid coating brushed on the back, we believe it’s likely to be less durable over the long term. The chenille-style fibers are plusher and thicker than those of our pick, which feels nice but can be an obstruction to a swinging bathroom door. This rug also costs less than our pick, but it’s more limited in color and size options, and the warranty is not as good.”
Street Price: $80 MSRP: $100 Deal Price: $63
Update 4 : This deal on the Tommy Bahama beach cart has fluctuated over the past week, first to $67, then $64, then $63, then 65, now back to $63.
Whether you’re looking to grab some gear to prepare for one last beach venture or you’re lucky enough to live somewhere beach gear is viable year-round, this is an excellent price on our recommended beach cart. This Tommy Bahama All Terrain Beach Cart is usually $80 or more, but presently sits at $70, both the first significant drop and the lowest price we’ve seen. Shipping is free.
The Tommy Bahama All Terrain Beach Cart is our beach cart pick in our guide to the best beach umbrellas, chairs, and accessories for enjoying the sun and surf. The Sweethome staff writes, “After spending a couple of years envious of Kirk’s baseline Wonder Wheeler beach cart, taking time to check out the offerings at our local beachwear stores, and sandying plastic wheels for a week, we’re recommending the Tommy Bahama All Terrain Beach Cart. This souped-up Wonder Wheeler (made by Rio Brands) is a sturdy all-purpose sandcrawler that will haul a day’s worth of food and gear to the beach and then lug it—along with maybe even a tired kid—back to the car at day’s end.”
