Thinking about swapping your bulky upright vacuum for a sleek stick model, but don’t want to shell out hundreds for a Dyson? This Fykee Cordless Vacuum is just the ticket, and it’s priced just right … by which we mean it’s 83% off! Weighing under eight pounds, it’s super portable, and its powerful motor (equipped with two suction modes) allows you to tackle messes big and small. The rotating floor brush is equipped with LED lights to ensure you don’t miss a spot, and for higher areas, it conveniently transforms into a handheld. Get up to 35 minutes of runtime per charge!

“This vacuum is an amazing product,” raved one happy cleaner. “It even comes with a hang-on-the-wall holder for the vacuum and all the attachments! The sound was surprisingly quiet, and it was lightweight as well. I like how all the attachments are self-explanatory in how they connect to the vacuum. … I look forward to using this for all the messes that my kids make throughout the day.”

We sincerely hope you never have to use this DBPower Portable Jump Starter, but if you do happen to find yourself with a dead battery, you’ll be glad you had this in the trunk. It’s nice and compact, yet powerful enough to jump your car up to 30 times per charge — and the handy LCD screen will let you know how much juice remains. It also has a compass to help you navigate, and its charging port can power up your phone and other devices.

“Awesome!” exclaimed a happy driver. “It is amazing how quickly (seconds after hookup) it worked to start a vehicle that had not responded to over 15 minutes in a traditional jump start. It is VERY easy to use, completely safe, compact, versatile and will be with me always.”

Plan on going Apple-picking this fall? We’d take these earbuds over a Honeycrisp any day. (Photo: Amazon)

There’s a reason for the hype surrounding the newest Apple AirPods Pro — many reasons, in fact! For starters, they offer rich, crisp sound and superior noise-cancellation, allowing you to enjoy music, podcasts, audiobooks and more without outside commotion getting in the way. This model also allows you to control the volume simply by swiping the stem, and you’ll even receive four pairs of silicone tips in different sizes for customized comfort.

“I tried my cousin’s AirPods and couldn’t believe the sound quality,” shared one customer. “I decided to purchase the AirPods Pro because I wanted the controls on the earpiece itself. I can skip or go back on songs, adjust volume, start or stop music, and turn on or off the noise-cancellation option, all from the AirPod, which is super convenient — I don’t have to keep getting out my phone. The noise is so blacked out that it’s freaky. I had my siblings try it, and their faces were in shock when they realized they couldn’t hear their kids yelling. Purchase these! No regrets.”

Rubbermaid reveal power scrubber

See, you can afford your own maid — Rubbermaid, that is. (Photo: Amazon)

If you’re thinking this handheld gadget closely resembles an electric toothbrush, that’s essentially what it is. Only instead of putting the Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber in your mouth, you’ll use it to blast away dirt and grime from every crevice in your bathroom — or any small area in your home needing a good cleansing, for that matter. It does practically all of the heavy lifting for you via its 6V of power and oscillating head, which scrubs a whopping 60 times per second! According to the brand, it also works twice as fast as a standard scrub brush. A time- and energy-saver? We love to see it.

“I never write reviews — but I had to write about this amazing little tool,” gushed a five-star reviewer. “I just bought a new house and wasn’t going to replace kitchen and bathroom floors. I spent a hour or so with this little tool and some grout cleaner, and my old kitchen floors look alive again. I’m shocked. And very, very happy.”

Ready to upgrade your staticky old boob tube to one with jaw-dropping 4K Ultra HD visuals, immersive Dolby Digital Plus sound and smart-device compatibility? Lucky for you, this 55″ Amazon Fire TV is $140 off and checks off all of those boxes — and then some. With access to over a million movies and TV episodes, you’ll be able to kick back and enjoy your favorite content to your heart’s, um, content, and you can even control it via Alexa.

“Super easy to set up and get going,” shared a satisfied viewer. “Very nice picture. Controls are easy and make sense, to me anyway. Switching from the home screen to streaming to viewing over-the-air channels is simple and smart. Glad I made this purchase.”

vaclife tire pump

Is it just us, or does this tire pump look like it came straight out of a Transformers movie? Either way, it’s a road trip superhero. (Photo: Amazon)

In the event that you find yourself on a long drive with sagging tires and no rest stops in sight, you’ll be so glad you had this VacLife Tire Inflator in the trunk. It fills them right up in seconds when plugged into your car’s 12V power outlet, and its 9.8-foot cord is long enough to let you reach all four tires without having to keep adjusting the position. It can also blow up things such as air mattresses and inflatable boats!

“Being a senior, I appreciate the manufacturer putting detailed, easy-to-follow operating instructions on the casing of the air compressor in addition to a paper pamphlet in the shipping box for reference,” wrote this methodical reviewer. “A plus for me is that I do not now need an external tire pressure gauge to check the pressure in my tires.”

Let’s leave lugging a heavy vacuum around the house back in the 1990s where it belongs, and from now on vow to clean our floors with only lightweight dirt and dust zappers — like this 8.4-pound Whall Cordless Vacuum. Its three suction modes work just as well on carpets and stairs as on hard floors or even in your car, and the Transformer-like design allows you to use it as a stick vac or handheld. It also has a four-stage filtration system to suck up to 99.99% of nasty airborne particles. And there’s not even a cord to trip over!

“Better than my Roomba!” gushed a happy homemaker. “This stick vacuum should be renamed the Swivel Master 3000 … It’s awesome! It moves around my dining table like a truffle pig in spring … I love how you can just grab it quick and clean up the five million crumbs my kids leave behind after every meal. I can finally vacuum the stairs every other day with ease. It’s light, it’s easy, you only need medium speed to pick up most stuff.”

cerave retinol serum

All aboard the retinol train! Next stop: smoother, brighter skin. (Photo: Amazon)

It’s no secret that retinol is one of the ingredients most recommended by dermatologists for a smoother, more even-looking complexion, and CeraVe’s Resurfacing Retinol Serum is just the ticket if it’s affordable skin care you’re after. Formulated with ceramides, licorice root extract and niacinamide, this non-greasy Amazon fave brightens while calming the skin, and can also help minimize pores and traces of acne.

“It works!” exclaimed a senior supporter. “I am 67 years old with (20s and 30s) acne scarring and lines and wrinkling around my mouth and cheeks. I am also extremely fair and oily and have uneven skin tones and ruddiness. … My skin now has an even, all-over tone with much less ruddiness. The lines and even deep wrinkles are lessened and softened. My skin has a peachy soft look to it. People have been telling me that I ‘look really good’ for the last month or so. … I would liken my results at this point to a series of salon peels.”

If you’re going for a more — as the kids say — “snatched” effect, this FeelinGirl shapewear bodysuit is just the ticket. Made of a soft, stretchy nylon-blend fabric, it glides on like buttah and offers light compression to smooth out any lumps and bumps. Best of all? It’s lightweight and breathable enough to comfortably wear all day. Get it in sizes XS-5X and in 10 colors.

“This body shaper is amazing … it makes you feel your best,” wrote an impressed shopper. “My friends thought I [had a] tummy tuck when I wore this under my dress. I’m in love with it … the quality is better than Skims. I 💯 recommend.”
