In between taking a dip in your pool and catching up on the drama of Alabama sorority rush TikTok, make sure you set aside time to peruse the sales. One spot you don’t want to miss? Amazon. In fact, the e-retailer is having a massive weekend-long sale, and whether you need a new TV, laptop, or just something to add to your summer wardrobe, you can scoop it up for a steal.

Listen up, cord cutters: As a Fire TV, this Insignia model lets you stream movies and shows from Prime Video, Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, YouTube, Disney+, Paramount+, Peacock and more without buying a separate device. 

Alexa is included in the remote. So if you’re not a fan of endlessly scrolling through a grid of movie titles or “hunting and pecking” on a virtual keyboard to find something to watch (and who is, really?), you can just say, “Alexa, play Flack,” and she’ll make your wish come true. Plus, the TV features vivid colors and exceptional picture quality — which is rare at this price point. It also has three ports, so you can hook up a soundbar, a video game console, a Blu-ray player and more.

“I was blown away by the Fire TV straight out of the box, even before hooking into my home network,” one shopper noted. “The picture is clear, sharp and detailed, the sound is terrific, and the TV comes pre-loaded with a ton of useful and fun apps. But this thing really shines when you connect it to your home network. The amount of content for this service is staggering, and nearly all of the free apps from the Amazon App Store are excellent. I should also mention that the user interface is quite good and intuitive, and the remote is generally quite responsive and easy to use.”

On sale for $98 (down from $180), these Sony WHCH710N Noise-Canceling Headphones have the crisp and clear audio you’ve come to expect from this standard-bearer of the home-electronics world. Best of all, this is just about the wallet-friendliest way to get premium noise canceling. That would be Sony’s Dual Noise Sensor Technology, which eliminates nearly every decibel of background and ambient noise. Gone are the days of air conditioner humming and washing machine tumbling encroaching on your jams; from here on it’ll just be you and your music.

“These Sony headphones are perfect. They sync easily and the sound is clear,” wrote a savvy Amazon shopper. “The noise-canceling feature is great and often annoys my wife and kids when I can’t hear them. [How’s that for a fringe benefit?] These are very comfortable and I haven’t had an issue with the ear pads (in fact, they keep the ears warm during the cold winter months). The charging is quick and the battery life is very good.”

If you’re in the market for a new smartphone or looking to make the switch from Apple to Android, then the Samsung Galaxy S10 is the best Android phone you can buy at the moment, thanks to its “Infinity Display,” long battery life, ease-of-use and shockingly low price. This model also features a dual rear camera system, which includes a 12-megapixel super speed pixel camera paired with a 16-megapixel ultra-wide shooter for more picture options and clarity when snapping photos.

Plus, don’t let the “renewed” tag scare you — the phone was rigorously tested, cleaned and works and looks brand-new. It’s also backed by a 90-day guarantee.

“I received a mint condition Galaxy S10, grade A+, almost like new or whatever you would call a device in flawless condition,” a shopper noted. “Very happy with this purchase. It has zero imperfections in simple sight, screen looking perfect and showing awesome colors as Samsung AMOLED display usually does, frame and glass in the back without any scratch or crack, I repeat: it looks just like a new S10, everything works great, camera, speakers, Bluetooth, etc. Oh, and I was forgetting about this: The battery performance is outstanding. Would I buy again from Amazon Refurbished? Yeah, for sure!”

If you always dreamed of being a Viking — or at least been curious about the rich history of Norse tradition — this game is a must-play. You compete as Eivor of the Raven clan, and you fight and explore your way through Dark Age-era Norway and England. It’s a stunning game filled with gorgeous graphics, brilliant writing, and challenging combat — plus an expansive story-scape hat you’ll be itching to explore.

“I was hoping for an open world adventure with tons of content, and I wasn’t disappointed,” a shopper reported. “After 100 hours, I still haven’t finished the main story, because I keep finding other stuff I want to see and do! I played Odyssey for months until the min/maxing equipment got to me and felt more like Diablo than Assassin’s Creed. Valhalla fixed this. All weapons are unique and you could go the whole game with your starting equipment if you want. If you want to get sucked into an adventure and forget…I highly recommend.”

On sale for $55, the Show 5 is Echo’s smaller, sleeker model. Armed with a 5-inch display, the Echo Show 5 is the perfect compact and lightweight companion to your nightstand. This smart-home display can double as a digital alarm clock with Alexa built-in. In fact, Amazon has a wide range of personalized clock faces to choose from, so you can bring a little bit of your own personality to this device. Plus, this set comes with a Blink Mini smart security camera, which is Alexa-compatible.

“I love my Alexa,” a shopper noted. “She is my new Personal Assistant. I have been wanting her for years. This is a product I should have purchased years ago. My husband is in love too…. The 5.5” smart display. It is large enough to see from across the room. She can also hear me when I am not close to the display. She has been so entertaining. I also have the Samuel Jackson app that I purchase and love him too. I can ask her/Samuel anything.”

The Eufy BoostIQ RoboVac 30C is smart, silent and incredibly efficient. And this weekend, it’s more attractive than it’ll ever be, as it’s on sale for $190 with on-page coupon, a sweet $110 off. This smart-home robot vacuum uses BoostIQ technology to navigate around your home, while it tackles just about any household surface including hardwood floors, carpets, rugs, tile and more. In fact, it’s so smart that if it senses stronger suction is needed, it’ll immediately step up its power to get the job done. 

“I’m extremely impressed with this vacuum,” raved a delighted shopper. “We have two large German Shepherd mixes and this tiny vacuum does wonders on both our hardwood and carpeted floors, transitioning almost seamlessly from level to level. I’m able to schedule its run time via the user-friendly app, as well as program the cleaning cycle (whether it be auto, edging, 30-minute quick clean, etc.). We run it nearly every night on the full-powered ‘auto’ cycle and I’m amazed at the dog hair it picks up.”

It’s taxing enough on the old noggin to spend a long day at the computer. Why wreak havoc on your body too by spending it hunched over a too-low laptop? Get some sweet relief for your neck, shoulders and back with the Soundance Laptop Stand, on sale for just $24, or $16 off, at Amazon. 

It’s specifically designed to get your laptop off your (actually, physical) desktop and raised to eye level, so you’re not wrenching your body into the shape of a question mark. It’s made from lightweight aluminum alloy and ergonomically designed to keep your laptop cool with clever ventilation openings.

“The height is perfect in relation to my table and my chair,” a shopper reported. “I originally used it with my external keyboard because I thought it would feel awkward to elevate my hands to type. But after my wrists became sore from resting on the tabletop, which was not even resolved by a wrist rest, I started using the laptop keyboard. It turns out to be even more comfortable than using a keyboard that is on table level. And now I prefer it over the external keyboard. The best part is that the design is not bulky. My desk is not big, and the way this riser is designed makes my work space look neat and spacious.”

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: Fried foods do not have to be unhealthy….if they’re air-fried. This fetching little wonder conjures up your beloved wings, fries and more without the oil, thanks to rapidly circulating hot air that leaves food crispy on the outside and pillowy soft on the inside. Yum.

This model can fit over 4.2 quarts of your favorite crispy treats and comes with a cookbook to get you started on your new fried-food repertoire. It’s also easy to clean — just throw it in the dishwasher and walk away. It couldn’t be any easier! 

“I’ve wanted an air fryer for so long and spent so much time researching them, looking through the pros and cons in every review,” one shopper shared. “So, so, so happy I chose this one! It’s become apart of my everyday cooking routine. Easy to use, easy to clean, and I love the results. It makes insanely crispy wings. I was worried about cooking things that produce tons of oil (like bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers) but it’s truly not a concern. In retrospect, I probably could have done with a bigger size — I have to make wings or nuggets in batches but it’s not a deal breaker. Just pop ’em in and go!”

If you’re looking for the perfect May-to-September frock, look no further than this DB Moon Short Sleeve Empire Waist Dress. This comfy, everyday dress has earned more than 18,000 perfect five-star reviews and is available in sizes XS-3X in a crewneck or V-neck style.

The empire waist makes this dress extra figure-flattering — its elastic band cinches the narrowest part of you, and the full skirt conceals the tummy for a flawless fit. Its short sleeves are on the, um, longer side, offering a bit more coverage to the upper arm, and the hem line falls right below the knee.

A rayon-spandex blend means it’s lightweight, soft and stretchy, so it’s perfect for warmer weather.

If the past year-plus has taught us anything, it’s that you can’t be too disinfected. And who know more about disinfecting than the folks at Lysol? This set comes with 480 wipes (six packs of 80) that you can use on just about any surface in your home. They’re tough on germs and kill over 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria, but gentle on your senses. Each wipe leaves a fresh lemony scent in its wake. 

“Of all the disinfectant wipes, Lysol is my favorite,” shares one cootie-free customer. “These hand-pack wipes are especially handy in the bathroom. I sat one on top of my toilet and it’s readily available whenever I need it!”

These pillows are the closest you’ll get to having a hotel-quality snooze in your own home…without the ridiculously expensive minibar. And here’s an ingenious touch: Made with shredded memory foam, they’re totally customizable, so you can pull out and re-stuff as much as you want. They’re cooling to the touch as well (a must for these torrid summer nights), and have a washable bamboo pillow case. Sweet dreams!

“Just got these today, and…they are so comfortable. They fluff up easily and give great support now with a memory foam mattress…. I don’t believe I will ever leave my bedroom again,” shared a shopper.

Because, you know, sleeping isn’t attractive enough to cats already… (Photo: Amazon)

Your kitty loves to feel like she’s in the lap of luxury (you two have that in common, amirite?), and whether her definition of that is on top of your hamper or in a cardboard box surrounded by bubble wrap, it’s all about that sequestered-cozy vibe. This bed provides the nest-like repose she loves, and its ultra-soft material will keep her nice and toasty. Plush walls make her feel safe and give her a space to rest her head. 

“This is a very soft bed with a water-resistant bottom and kitty loves it,” a shopper noted. “I was a little concerned when I opened it — my kitty is long and it makes stretching out in this difficult for him. However, he is content to curl up in it and flop his head and arms over the edge. He is picky, so I was concerned that he wouldn’t like it, but after I placed him in it a few times, he learned that he likes the coziness.”
