1. Less than $6: This scalp massager that's great for fighting dandruff
If you struggle with dandruff, a brush like the Heeta hair scalp massager can be life-altering. I've been using mine regularly for about eight months and have noticed a significant difference in flake buildup, which can otherwise be a big problem for me—especially during the summer months. Designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, this waterproof brush is fun to use in the shower and works by stimulating blood circulation—something the brand claims is essential for helping to combat dandruff. Its thick, rubber bristles are also great for reducing scalp itchiness. It’s not just me who loves this brush: More than 12,000 Amazon reviewers have given this 4.6-star rated product a big thumbs-up. Right now, you can snag it in green for $5.09, which is $2.49 cheaper than its typical retail price of $7.58. This is a terrific deal, but it won't ship out until Friday, August 7, so keep that in mind before you buy.
2. $152 off: One of our favorite indoor grills
Don't have access to an outdoor grill? Not a problem. You can still get that classic BBQ taste from the best indoor grills. Right now, in fact, you can save big on one of our favorites, the Philips Smokeless Indoor Grill. Ordinarily priced at $279.95, you can save $152 and get this device for $127.95. This is one of the best price drops we've ever seen on this appliance; in January 2020, it was on sale for $120, which is the cheapest price we’ve ever seen it going for on the site.
In testing, we found that this grill cooked burgers evenly—it's large enough that we were able to sear six at once—and was easy to operate, as it comes with just two settings: high and warm. In addition, the grate that this grill comes with was easy to take off, and cleaning it, along with the drip pan, was a relatively stress-free experience as they're both safe to run through the dishwasher. We found this smokeless indoor grill very expensive compared to other options, but thanks to this sale, it's far more appealing—and affordable.
3. Save $114: These highly coveted noise-canceling Bose headphones
The Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Bluetooth Headphones may no longer be our favorite noise-canceling headphones, but we still absolutely adore them, and it's not hard to sing their praises. Built with the active noise cancellation (ANC) feature that Bose is legendary for, these bad boys reduce outside clamor, so you can focus on your tunes. Light and easy to adjust, these come with cushy leather pads that'll be comfy on even the most sensitive of ears. In addition, the QuietComfort 35 II's are Bluetooth-enabled and have an impressive 20-hour battery life, which adds to their versatility. You can save $114 and get them for $235 in the rose gold hue instead of $349 if you act fast, so we recommend you do it up.
4. Less than $50: This adorable air fryer
If any kitchen appliance has challenged the Instant Pot for the "most useful" gadget around in recent years, it has to be the air fryer. These handy tools can not only add flavor to everything from shrimp and onion rings to chicken and veggies by crisping them to perfection, it strips away much of the trans fat and excess calories you'd get from a deep fryer, too. Right now, you can get a little 2.6-quart Dash Tasti electric air fryer for just under $50, as it falls from $59.99 to $49.99 on the site. While we haven't tested this specific Dash model, it's got better ratings from Amazon customers than the unit we did test, the 2-quart compact air fryer ($69.99), which ranked among our picks for the best air fryers on the market. Both feature a nonstick basket and a kitschy, compact design that will look great on your counter. In testing, we found that the compact version did a decent job, as long as you confined it to a half-pound of food at a time and tossed and turned your meal a few times while cooking.
5. $30 off: The best affordable soundbar we've ever tested
A soundbar is a simple, yet extremely effective, way to make watching shows and movies on your TV more enjoyable. Polk makes some of the most respected ones in the biz, and right now, you can get the Audio Signa S2—our pick for the best affordable soundbar under $300—on sale for just under $200. Rather than shell out $229, which was the original retail value on this device, it's on sale for $30 off, which makes this already budget-friendly option even better. In testing, we felt this was a perfect entry-level selection because it's Bluetooth compatible and delivers great audio quality with strong bass presence. You can choose from different three audio modes, each of which delivered robust and distortion-free sound according to our reviewers.
