#1: Paramount+ Free Month

Streaming is a funny thing. On the one hand, you have nearly any show you could wish for at your fingertips, ready for you to binge after logging off for the weekend. On the other hand, those shows are fragmented across so many apps and services that it’s hard to track down where to find anything, let alone how to pay for it all. Luckily, free trials exist to let you blitz through your most anticipated or beloved shows while taking the service out for a spin, all without having to commit. By the end of it, maybe you’ll have found a new catalog of shows and movies to sink your teeth into, or maybe you’ll just be grateful for the time you spent together.

Right now, you can get a month of Paramount+ (formerly CBS All Access) for free through Amazon. After your first month, it’ll cost $6, but you can always cancel ahead of time if it’s not your jam, and that’s a problem for future you, anyways.

In the meantime, you’ll get access to content from CBS, Comedy Central, BET, Nickelodeon, and MTV. You can catch old favorites like (pardon me for dating myself) Clone High and Daria, Hey Arnold!, Key & Peele, and Rugrats. There’s also plenty of originals to choose from, too, like Star Trek: Picard, Kamp Koral, and The Good Fight.

You can snag the newest iPad Air (4th Generation) at Amazon right now and save $40 off any color of the 64GB edition. Looking for even more storage? You’ll get bigger savings on the 256GB edition, which is $69 off.

We’ve seen prices this low recently, but never across the entire color lineup at the same time, so now you can pick the one you truly want. Sky blue, green, rose gold, silver, space gray? It’s your call. Note that some of the 256GB versions currently aren’t slated to ship for a couple of weeks, although we’ve seen Apple’s estimates shrink faster than expected at times.

All indications are that the new iPad Air is the best value among all of Apple’s big slates. It shares a lot in common with the bigger, more powerful, much more expensive iPad Pro. It’s only missing extra cameras and Face ID (but the fingerprint reader is back to help), plus the display isn’t as bright (600 nits vs 500) or smooth (120Hz vs 60Hz).

But it has the powerful Apple A14 Bionic chipset and picks up Apple Pencil support, making this a much sweeter option for casual artists and multimedia buffs. And it comes in those fun colors, too. Apple’s Magic Keyboard attachment is also $100 off at Amazon right now, in case you want to add physical keys and a trackpad to create a true laptop-like experience.

#3: Home Depot Vacuums

It’s like my mom always told me: No one wants to date someone with a dirty floor. Fast forward a few years, and now I’m married, and I owe it all to my Dyson V7 Motorhead. While that particular model is excluded from the sale, you can get the more recent V8 model from The Home Depot for even less in today’s sweeping (no pun intended) Special Buy offer. Shop this 1-day-only sale for deep markdowns on reputable brands including Dyson, Hoover, Shark, Dirt Devil, Samsung, Bobsweep, and Ryobi.

Whether or not you’re ready to go cordless, you can take your pick between a lineup of vacuum cleaners that don’t suck but do suck if you’re picking up what I’m putting down. Get it? Vacuum humor. Vacuumor. Starting at just $60 for the Dirt Devil Endura, you can step it up to a Hoover for just $90 or step it up to a PetHair-perfected robot vacuum for $170. Samsung’s $199 Jetbot not only automatically picks up dust and debris but also doubles as a mop, making it an extra great value. But of course, for maximum savings, look no further than the Bobsweep PetHair Plus—slashed 50% from its usual $400 price point.

#4: Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit

Ready? Set? Go! Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit is back on sale at Amazon. The AR racing game has been hard to come by since it launched, so anyone who’s been curious might want to hit the gas on this deal. The creative Switch game comes with a physical kart, which you can use to drive around courses in your actual house. The camera on the kart peripheral transmits to your Switch, turning your living room into a full-on track. It’s the perfect gift for kids this holiday season or adults who just want an excuse to play with RC cars again (read, me). Amazon made more copies available back in December, but the catch was that it wouldn’t be shipping orders until January. Now, the game is actually in stock and you can get the Luigi version for $88, its lowest price ever. The Mario version is slightly more at $94. What a jerk.

For many, working from home this year has been a tricky adjustment. Among the many frustrations and inconveniences are the many noises your housemates will make as you try to focus on your work. Asking to keep the noise down might work, but it can also cause some tension, and it’s never any fun.

Spare yourself the trouble with the Sony WH-1000XM4 noise-canceling headphones. Typically they’d cost you $348, but they’re down to $278 today on Adorama, and you even get a 20800mAh Mophie portable battery pack for free. I’ve been testing the Sony’s for the past couple months, and the noise-cancellation is a joy when your neighbors have a symphony of dogs on standby.

In his review, Gizmodo’s Andrew Liszewski says they provide the best noise-canceling experience, and you can easily switch between two paired devices, so you can toggle from a laptop to a phone before getting started on a home workout or heading out for a walk.

It runs at 1080p with both cameras going, but you can bump up to a crispier 2K (1440p) picture with just the forward camera activated. It has all the works for recording road incidents, including 24/7 parking monitoring, bump detection, night vision, and loop recording with automatic video protection when it thinks an accident occurred.

Are you ready for a family movie marathon this weekend? If so, let Dreamworks get you prepped with one of their fan-favorite collections. Now, of course, you don’t need to have a family or even be a kid yourself to enjoy any of these titles, but it doesn’t hurt. I truly believe that first Shrek holds up, and there is a line or two I still quote from Madagascar, so adults can absolutely have a killer, wholesome marathon also. Each bundle has no less than three movies, all for an extremely affordable price. A lot less than going to the theatre. So grab one or all of these for a delightful night in.

These will all ship for free for Prime members.
