Street Price: $36 MSRP: $50 Deal Price: $26
This is an excellent price on this Kryptonite bike lock, matching last month’s price at the lowest we’ve seen. This is an item that is nearly always $30 or more, so at $26, this deal represents a significant opportunity to save as bike season gets properly geared up. While our guide has been updated to reflect a new top pick, this one is still a great value at this price. Standard shipping is free. This deal ends 3.24.
The Kryptonite Series 2 was our former top pick in our guide for the best bike locks. Eric Hansen wrote, “This isn’t an exciting, novel pick for the best U-lock but it is savvy. Experts, users, and the bike thieves that we interviewed agree that the Series 2 U-lock is strong enough to foil all foilable thieves. It’s also light and comes with a stable, easy-to-mount carrying bracket that fits on virtually all bikes. Kryptonite’s accompanying “insurance”—costing $20 for three years—is the easiest to purchase, thanks to their rare online form. And it pays okay, too. In the event that some jerk destroys the U-lock and makes off with a bike, then Kryptonite pays the homeowners’ or renter’s insurance deductible or the replacement cost of the bike. The cable is just one more layer of security discouraging opportunists from nabbing a wheel or seat.”
Street Price: $220 MSRP: $500 Deal Price: $187
This is a new low on our new top pick for best robot vacuum. While this robot vacuum hasn’t been on the market for long, this is the lowest price we’ve seen, beating the $220 street price. Since we don’t have a lot of data on the Robovac, it’s hard to say how long this sale will last.
The Eufy Robovac 11 is our new top pick in our guide to the best robot vacuums. Liam McCabe wrote, “The Eufy RoboVac 11 is the smart-money pick for most people who want a robot vacuum cleaner. In our testing and research, the RoboVac 11 was the most likely to complete a cleaning cycle on its own, without getting stuck and waiting for a human to rescue it. That’s the most important part of a robot vacuum’s job, and the Eufy 11 does it better than almost any other model we’ve seen, even those that cost hundreds more. It’s also quieter than most other bots, is one of the lower-cost models to come with a remote control, and the brand (an offshoot of Anker3) has a good track record for customer service. Its cleaning power is not particularly strong, and its semi-random navigation system may miss patches of floor. But the 2.5-hour battery life (among the longest we’ve seen) helps to offset those limitations. Overall, it’s good enough to keep the floors tidy in just about any home if you run it at a few times per week, yet costs much less and comes with fewer caveats than any other robot vacuums that can say the same.”
Street Price: $460 MSRP: $460 Deal Price: $367
Feathered Friends is currently offering a nice 20% off sale on our upgrade comforter pick. While $367 is still quite a lot to pay for a Queen comforter, this matched the best price we’ve ever seen offered. These sales tend to be pretty rare, and this is the first one we’ve seen in nearly a year.
The Bavarian Medium 700 Comforter is our upgrade pick in our guide for the best comforter. Jamie Wiebe and Eric Hansen wrote, “If you want the best value in a comforter like the ones that were more readily available decades ago—ones that were puffy and light and super durable—theFeathered Friends Bavarian Medium 700+ is the one to get. It’s not the exact one we tested, but it’s definitely the version we’d recommend. Heck, it’s the one to save up for. It’s the family-owned company’s most popular model, and is made in the sewn-through style that many industry insiders have on their own beds. It’s incredibly light, at just over four pounds, super fluffy, and will easily last 30 years. At $440, it’s expensive, but it happens to be a great deal relative to its few direct competitors, like the smaller, cooler $560 Cuddledown 700 Fill Power Sateen Down Comforter.”
Street Price: $44 MSRP: $60 Deal Price: $35
This is one of the best prices we’ve seen on this slow cooker, beating typical lows by a few dollars. We normally only see this slow cooker drop from its street price of $50 down to a deal price of $40, so this is quite a nice deal. While we saw it very slightly lower in late January, that was for a deal of the day and only featured the stainless steel finish. This deal features the $35 price on both the stainless and red finishes. Shipping is free with Prime.
The Crock-Pot Programmable Cook and Carry Oval 6-Quart is our runner-up pick in our guide for the best slow cooker. Christine Cyr Clisset wrote, “If you find you need a timer that goes longer than 14 hours (which is the upper limit on the Set & Forget), we recommend the highly reviewed and easy-to-use Crock-Pot Programmable Cook and Carry Oval Slow Cooker. It does cook for 20 hours, compared with the Set & Forget’s 14, and looks more up-to-date (because it is); we like its handles and locking mechanism a little better, too.”
Street Price: $90 MSRP: $130 Deal Price: $75
This is a really good discount on this Withings Body scale when you clip a 25% off ($25) on-page coupon, knocking the price all the way down to $75. While not quite the lowest price we’ve seen, this is still a very solid deal on this item. It’s available in black & white.
The Withings Body Scale is our upgrade pick in our guide for the best bathroom scales. Melanie Pinola wrote, “”If you want advanced features such as weight tracking on your phone and body-fat measurements, both of which our weight-loss physician source highly recommends, get the Withings Body. The Withings Body is one of the most feature-rich smart scales available now (second only to the Withings Body Cardio), with a heart-rate monitor and body-fat measurement. The Withings Body actually tries to figure out your weight every time you get on it using its four sensors, and in our tests it was the only scale that consistently measured weight changes of just two-tenths of a pound. It’s easy to set up on both iOS and Android, and it automatically and seamlessly transfers your weight data to the scale’s mobile app (or other fitness apps) for easy weight tracking and weight-trends analysis.”
Street Price: $550 MSRP: $650 Deal Price: $467
This is a great drop in price on the Airmega 300, nearly matching the low price we saw during Black Friday sales last year. While the Airmega has dropped down $550 within the past year, this deal drops it more than $80 from its street price.
The Coway Airmega 300 is our extreme upgrade pick for the best air purifier. John Holecek wrote, “If you have severe allergies or other serious health issues related to airborne particles, or if you need to purify the air in a seriously large space, we have a new step-up pick: the Airmega 300. This is a large but attractive machine; it’s HEPA-rated and rated to clear spaces of about 500 square feet at five complete air-changes per hour (about 1.5 times the coverage of the Coway and Winix), or 1,250 square feet at two complete air-changes. Its unique twin filters permit very high airflow, allowing it to run on lower settings when the air is relatively clean (quieter, less energy) or to rapidly filter very large volumes of air on the highest setting, as you might when allergens or pollution are elevated. In our test, it gave the overall second-best air-purification performance—more a function of its higher airflow and dual filters than inherently superior filtration.”
Street Price: $70 MSRP: $70 Deal Price: $50
This deal matches the previous lowest price we’ve seen on the Honeywell HCM-350, and is the best price we’ve seen in quite some time. Coming in at $20 under the street price, it’s a great price to pick up this humidifier. This deal is only available in black.
The Honeywell HCM-350 is our top pick in our guide to the best humidifier. Tim Heffernan wrote, “The Honeywell’s evaporative technology (as opposed to ultrasonic or warm mist), avoids problems common to the other methods, like overhumidification, pools of condensed water around the base, and white mineral dust building up on nearby surfaces. The HCM-350 Germ Free Cool Mist Humidifier is easier to keep clean than nearly every other humidifier we’ve tested, because every part that touches water is free of electronic components and lacks the sharp angles that harbor buildup. And the HCM-350 is the only humidifier we’ve found that has a seamless, molded reservoir, which eliminates a problem common in inferior models: leaks. Evaporative humidifiers like this are not the most powerful type, but in less than two hours, the Honeywell reaches and maintains a comfortable level of humidity in a room up to about 400 square feet.”
Street Price: $80 MSRP: $80 Deal Price: $70
This is the lowest price we’ve seen in over a year, and one of the lowest prices we’ve seen overall. This is a nice $10 drop in price on a toaster that very rarely ever goes on sale. This sale probably won’t last, so it’s a good time to pick up a decent discount on our upgrade pick for best toaster.
The Breville BTA720XL is our upgrade pick in our guide to the best toaster. Brendan Nystedt wrote, “The two-slot Breville BTA720XL costs about $50 more than the Oster, but its strong performance and well-thought-out features are worth the extra cost. The Breville toasted bread and bagels better than any two-slot toaster we tried. Plus, it has a couple of features that make it an absolute cinch to get your toast perfect: one lets you monitor the toast’s progress, while the other can add a little more time to an underdone slice. Also, the Breville’s stainless steel exterior has a classic look that will fit the aesthetic of almost any kitchen.”
