Looking for a good deal on a great product? There's always something on sale, but that doesn't mean it's always the best value. Finding a discount on a great product that's actually a bargain can be tough. So we took some of the guess work out of it for you. With the help of my fellow product experts, we rounded up 10 of the best deals on the internet right now across a handful of different categories:
1. Electronics: A new Kindle just in time for holiday travel
The Kindle Paperwhite is our favorite e-reader by far, and it's now available for the lowest price in recent memory—just $89.99 at Amazon. That's $30 off the regular price and $10 cheaper than Black Friday last year. If you don't have a Kindle or have been waiting to upgrade, today is the day. -TJ Donegan, Editor-in-Chief, Tech
2. Electronics: A powerful, portable battery backup to prevent dead phones
Given how much we all rely on our smartphones, there's simply no gadget more useful than a USB battery backup. This one from RAVPower is just $40 today (usually $50). It can charge multiple devices at once, has enough juice to charge an iPhone six times over, and has a USB-C output that can help power larger devices like a Nintendo Switch or a 12-inch Apple MacBook. It's incredible. -TJ Donegan, Editor-in-Chief, Tech
Plus, you can get a free 2-pack of USB A to USB C cables (a $10 value) when you buy this charger by adding both from the promotion dropdown (see image below).

3. Home: A WiFi router setup that covers your entire home
The eero Home WiFi system offers an easy way to not only set up WiFi in your home, but to build a mesh router setup. Mesh routers allow you to daisy chain multiple routers together for broader coverage across your home. No more weak signals just because you're on a different floor than the main router. This first-generation system is on sale right now, and it comes with three routers to get you started. You can add up to seven more if you need them.
4. Smart home: A smart lamp that adds a pop of color
Even if you don't have a ton of smart technology, the Philips Hue line of smart bulbs is a great addition to any home. And right now, the Hue Go is $10 off. This veritable bowl of light can go anywhere and is perfect for an evening with a three-hour battery life and more than a million colors to choose from. You can control it from the smartphone app, via Amazon Alexa, or with a button that lets you cycle through a handful of color options.
5. Smart home: A plug that turns any electronics into smart ones
The iDevices Switch smart plug is the best one we've ever tested, and you can get it for $28.35. It's only a few bucks off, but the regular $30 pricetag is still a great deal. You can plug any device into this smart plug, and then toggle power on and off with the mobile app. It also works great with Amazon Alexa and Apple Homekit.
6. Kitchen: A slow cooker to make hearty comfort foods all fall and winter
There's nothing like a warm bowl of chili or stew on a brisk fall day, or hot mulled cider during the first snowfall. The Hamilton Set 'n Forget Slow Cooker, our favorite affordable slow cooker, makes it easy to whip up tasty meals perfect for colder months. The programmable schedule capabilities mean you can start a dish in the morning and come home to a home-cooked meal that's ready to go. And right now, this slow cooker is 20% off.
7. Beauty: The contour palette you've been waiting for
This best-selling contour palette is a cult favorite at Sephora, and it's 50% off until Thursday. It has an average star rating of 4.5 stars—customers love the six pigmented powder and cream shades that create glowy, chiseled cheekbones and jawlines on any skin tone. One swears of all Sephora's highlighters, "these are the shiniest, longest lasting, prettiest out of all, [and that the] two contour shades the blend like a dream." -Jessica Teich, Staff Writer
8. Beauty: A new makeup brush set for all your beauty needs
A foundation brush is the only essential brush to keep on your vanity, and this killer set includes a flat-top brush for or buffing and setting, and angled blush brush, and a stippling brush to achieve a flawless finish. At $25 for the high-quality set, it's a no-brainer. -Jessica Teich, Staff Writer
9. Fashion: Yoga pants you'll want to wear all the time
My all-time favorite yoga pants are Lululemon’s Wunder Under Hi-Rise pants—and right now they are on sale. With my curvy build, these pants make me feel good about my body AND they don’t get soaked during sweaty workouts. I wear them all the time (even when not working out) and can’t resist picking up a new pair when they’re on sale. The investment is worth it! -Samantha Matt, Manager, Audience Development

Right now, Madewell is giving an extra 30% off sale items with the code GOODLOOKS. But if you want in, you’ve got to hurry—the good stuff won’t last long. I recently bought a few sale items before this bonus sale (ugh), and some are still available! I bought this side-tie tee two weeks ago, and I’ve already worn it five times. I love it, and it’s SO cheap right now. -Samantha Matt, Manager, Audience Development
