LG WT7300C Washing Machine (White)
Deal price: $700; street price: $900
Read our review of the best washing machines (and their matching dryers).

Our top-performing top-loading washing machine pick, the LG WT7300C, is down to $700. Although they don’t remove stains and gently handle fabric like a front-loader, top-loaders can be great for odor resistance. This is the first deal we’ve seen on this efficient and reliable washer, so now is a great time to save if you’re a fan of the top-loading washer design.

Cricut Explore Air 2 Cutting Machine
Deal price: $180; street price: $227
Read our review of the best electronic cutting machines from Cricut and Silhouette.

Our top electronic cutter pick, the Cricut Explore Air 2, is available for $180. This machine may not be as fast as other electronic cutters, but it makes up for this by offering an impressive library of projects and images, smooth cutting, and the easiest-to-learn software. We typically see markdowns like this sell out fast, so snag this handy tool while you can.

Cricut Maker Electric Cutting Machine (Rose)
Deal price: $300; street price: $370
Read our review of the best electronic cutting machines from Cricut and Silhouette.

If you love all things DIY, you can pick up the Cricut Maker Electronic Cutting Machine in rose for $300. As the upgrade pick in our guide to the best electronic cutting machines from Cricut and Silhouette, the Maker is faster and quieter than our other picks. Plus, this model’s impressive rotary blade and cutting mats make it a breeze to cut through materials like thick fabrics or even balsa wood. We very rarely see it drop below $300 so this is a good time to buy.

Our top Bluetooth tracker pick is down to $18 right now. Although it’s not the best price we’ve seen on the Tile Mate (2020), it’s still worth considering if you you’re tired of losing your keys. In the latest iteration, the Bluetooth range is expanded to 200 feet and, similar to the 2019 version, it contains a rechargeable battery with a longer lifespan.

Down to the same price we saw on Prime Day, the Amazon Echo Dot Smart Speaker (3rd generation) is back on sale for $19 with store pickup. The small smart speaker is a great way to bring Alexa into other parts of your house cheaply—especially if speaker quality isn’t your main concern. This deal is also currently available from Amazon as well, but they’re having stock issues.

Amazon Echo Show 5 Smart Display
Deal price: $45; street price: $70

Matching the lowest price we’ve seen at $45, our smaller screen Alexa smart display pick, the Amazon Echo Show 5 does everything the larger Echo Show can do, just with a smaller screen. This is a great opportunity to save if you’re in the market for a smart display that won’t take up too much space on your bathroom counter or nightstand.
