Wednesday might be the roughest day of the week. You’re halfway through the week, but you’re also only halfway through the week. It’s the day I need a little extra motivation and nothing gets me more fired up than finding a good deal. Today, there are great prices on Instant Pots, robot vacuums, electric knives, and more.
How do I know these are good deals? Well, not only have we put these products through vigorous tests to assure they perform well, but we also use price tracking tools so we know when they’re at their lowest prices. That way you can save a little on those top gadgets you’ve been eyeing. Check out all the ways you can save right now.
1. Lowest price: An upgraded Instant Pot
The Instant Pot craze is still going strong—and I fully support it. This fall, I’m planning on cooking a butternut squash risotto in just minutes thanks to its pressure cooking setting, which is a major time saver. Now is the best time to join on the pressure cooking fun because you can get the Instant Pot Ultra for its lowest price ever. This is our favorite electric pressure cooker because it has a simpler dial and screen compared to the popular Duo model (which its cheaper than right now!). It also has extra features like altitude adjustment, cooking indicator, and a steam release reset button.

2. Exclusive code: An speaker that charges your phone
If you haven’t used an alarm clock in years because you have a phone, this one from Anker might change your mind. The Soundcore Wakey is not only a Bluetooth speaker, but it is also an alarm clock, FM radio, white noise machine, an Qi wireless charger. So you can set your alarm, charge your phone, and fall asleep to white noise—all from one device. It also comes with an intuitive app that makes it easy to control all these features.
While we haven’t tested it (yet!), we’re a fan of both Anker speakers and chargers, so we’re confident that it will perform well in those areas. It’s on sale for $20 off with the code SOUNDCORE, so you might as well try it out for yourself.

3. $150 off: The best robot vacuum on the market
When it comes to the busy school year, you barely have time to vacuum. Heck, you might not find the time to empty out the dirt bin of your robot vacuum. That’s where the iRobot Roomba i7+ comes in. It can actually empty its dirt bin all by itself and keep on vacuuming. It impressed us so much that it scored a perfect 10.0 in our lab tests, making it the best robot vacuum we’ve ever tested.
This robot vacuum usually retails for a staggering $1,099, but you can save $150 right now, which brings it back to its second lowest price. This WiFi-enabled vac also uses smart technology to learn and map out your home, and you can customize how it cleans your home right from an app. If you want to take your laziness up a notch, this is the time to do it.

4. Lowest price: One of our favorite electric knives
Whether you’re carving the turkey for Thanksgiving or just want perfect slices of baguettes, then you’re going to want to use an electric knife. After testing a variety of electric knives, our tester really liked this one from Cuisinart. It was our runner up only because it was a bit noisier than our winner (but still not too loud) and still aced most of the tests. Right now, you can get it for its lowest price—so you can be ahead of the game for the big food holidays.

5. Half off: A popular witch hazel as a facial toner
Witch hazel is super soothing for easily irritated skin—and this one from Thayers has earned a cult following on Amazon. It cleanses, tones, and soothes with non-distilled Witch Hazel extract for the highest levels of therapeutic tannins. Right now, you can it with lavender, which is extra calming, for its lowest price ever.
