The last day of February is basically the last day of winter, at least to me, and when I start to get the itch for spring weather, I also want to buy fresh new things. Today is a great day for a little spring shopping, as Amazon's got a bunch of great discounts on big-ticket items like 4K TVs, robot vacuums, and heavy-duty blenders. But there are also lots of savings on awesome tech accessories that will make your like a little bit easier. So go ahead and celebrate the end of the dreary season with a little gift for yourself.
1. A fantastic big-screen TV at a great price
If you're ready to upgrade your home entertainment center and finally experience the clarity and brilliance of a 4K picture, we found a great sale for you. The 2017 Samsung MU8000 series is on sale right now to make room for the 2018 inventory. The 55-inch model that typically hovers around $900 is under $750, and the 65-inch is only $1,100 ($200 off) if you really want to go big. I have this TV at home and have no complaints. The picture quality is stunning to my untrained eye (though our reviewer found it lost a bit of quality at extreme viewing angles), the native smart apps are fairly easy to use, but it also works well with my Apple TV and PS4, so I'd imagine it'd be great with any streaming device.
*If the 65-inch is sold out on Amazon, you can get it for virtually the same price ($1,099.99) from P.C. Richard with the code "FEBTV100"
2. A lightweight comforter perfect for spring that's under $20
Snugging up under a comfy duvet is the best feeling, but when the weather starts to warm up, the blanket you've been using all winter is suddenly oppressive. Rather than sweating your way to morning, you could get a duvet that's perfect for that mild spring weather. We're big fans of Equinox's duvet inserts, and this one is made for warmer nights and folks who tend to run hot at night (hello!). If you've already got a duvet cover, you can put your winter duvet insert away for the next few months and swap this one in for just $15 (usually around $20).
3. The best affordable robot vacuum
A robot vacuum can be a great help for anyone with a busy lifestyle that maybe can't vacuum as often as they'd like. The iLife A4S is the best affordable robot vacuum we've ever tested, picking up dirt as well as more expensive models, and you can schedule it to clean your home while you're out. It's been on sale for $200 for a while now, but there's a coupon for $20 off you can select on the product page to get it for $180.
4. A robot vacuum that can mop too
Our readers love robot vacuums, and this particular model has been very popular recently. The EcoVacs Deebot M80 is not only smart enough to work with your smartphone and Amazon Alexa, but it also has a unique feature most robot vacuums don't. It can mop your floors too! The detachable water tank and mop attachment make this handy helper even more helpful, and you'll especially love that it's on sale for the lowest price we've ever seen at $230 (typically it cost $320). Not only is the sale price impressive, but you can clip a coupon to save an additional $30, putting this dual-purpose robot vacuum at $200.
5. A wireless charging stand for your desk
If your phone supports wireless charging, you really should have a wireless charger. I'm a big fan of Anker's low-profile charging pad, but they also make a stand that lets you sit your phone up while it charges. Right now it's on sale for $18—nearly $10 off the regular $27 price tag—when you use the coupon code "BEST2923" at checkout. This is especially ideal for iPhone X users, as you don't need to lift your phone for face recognition to quickly check a notification.
6. A super long, durable charging cable for your iPhone
You know how annoying it can be when you want to use your phone while it's charging and the cable is just short enough to make it awkward or downright impossible? Well, right now you can upgrade your life with a 10-foot charging cable from Anker. It's on sale for just under $12 with the coupon code "CABLE823." I have a bunch of these running next to my couch and bed, and I especially love the braided nylon cords that make them extra durable, and the red cables are also super easy to spot even when the lights are low.
7. A Ninja blender for nearly 50% off
If you want to drink more smoothies and shakes, you should have a good blender to get the job done. The Ninja Professional Blender, while we haven't officially tested it, has over 3,000 positive reviews with a 4.5-star rating. Brand new, it costs $115. But now Amazon is selling a refurbished model for just $70. It comes with two Ninja cups for making single-serving smoothies and a pitcher for bigger batches that can handle all the ice and frozen fruit you throw into it.
8. A water-resistant Bluetooth speaker
Having a good portable speaker in the backyard, at the park or beach, or at a tailgate party can be a real game changer. Anker's SoundCore 2 Bluetooth speaker has over 1,700 4- and 5-star reviews, and the fact that it's water-resistant makes it extra versatile. Whether you want to bring it along on an adventure or just use it to sing along to your favorite songs in the show, it's got a 24-hour playback time, meaning you can go longer between charges.
