Chomping at the bit for a new TV? This one — just $398 at Amazon's extended Labor Day sale — has a gorgeous 50-inch screen with a super-thin bezel (you're really maxing out your square footage here!) and comes with Roku, which means you have access to over 500,000 movies and TV episodes. Plus, the screen has stunning 4K Ultra HD quality, and with three HDMI ports, you can plug in a soundbar or gaming consoles to take the most advantage.
"It's SO EASY to use!" one shopper noted. "I love the size, it's a great big TV without the picture being fuzzy or distorted. Setup is fast and easy, the remote isn't complicated, and I loved how many extra channels we picked up. Plus it has a way to order your channels on the home screen, and I like to do that so I can keep my streaming services in the order I prefer."

Tablets and smartphones
This gorgeous tablet has an impressive 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display, quick Touch ID fingerprint sensor and rapid processor. You’ll notice — and appreciate — the speed with any videos, websites or games. (For the tech-savvy, the speed comes from Apple’s A14 Bionic chip). Get it for $99 off!
Plus: With up to 10 hours of battery life, the iPad Air works with the Apple Pencil and Apple Smart Keyboard (sold separately, but also on sale). So you’re all set for note-taking and sketching, if that’s your thing. It also has a 12-megapixel rear camera.
"Wanted to watch Netflix while husband watches golf," one shopper shared. "This suited my needs and was insanely easy to set up and sync to my phone. Just turn it on next to your iPhone and everything loads. I also like to cook and recipes are so much easier to read on the big screen. Didn’t know what I was missing trying to read recipes off my tiny phone! Very happy with this for my simple recreational needs."

Headphones and Earbuds
With the phenomenal sound you’d expect from Apple, we present the best bargain on the AirPod menu: These standard Apple AirPods with charging case, now just $119 for Amazon's extended Labor Day sale. While the buds themselves are wireless, you need to plug in the case to charge them.
Once juiced up, they instantly pair with your iPhone. No scrolling, no fiddling with settings. You’re good to go. And you can expect a robust five hours of battery life per charge. These are the most popular Pods of the bunch, earning a five-star rating from over 370,000 reviewers.
"This is my first pair of AirPods. I love them. They are life-changing! The AirPods arrived less than 24-hours after ordering. They were packaged in a sleek, white Apple AirPods box," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. “...I wholeheartedly give these AirPods five shiny gold stars."

This smart-home thermostat — $50 off right now — can analyze how you’re heating and cooling your home and adjust accordingly. In fact, it knows to keep it toasty when your family is home, and tone it down when it’s just you. It also automatically lowers the temp as soon as you leave your house.
It also syncs with your smartphone via the Nest app, and it can be used with your Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. Now you can control the temperature of your home, even if you’re heading home from the store or just landed from a flight. It’s even great if you’re in bed and just don’t want to get up to adjust the thermostat.
"The Nest thermostat is such a modern improvement in my home," a shopper noted. "It was easy to install, works great and can be adjusted anywhere from my smartphone. I like having the ability to adjust from my master bedroom, before going to bed or just getting up in the morning. It also learns your habits for automatic adjustments, keeping household heat or cooling efficiency."

If you always dreamed of being a Viking — or at least been curious about the rich history of Norse tradition — Assassins Creed Valhalla is a must-play. And it's 50 percent off! You compete as Eivor of the Raven clan, and you fight and explore your way through Dark Age–era Norway and England. It's a stunning game filled with gorgeous graphics, brilliant writing, and challenging combat — plus an expansive story-scape that you'll be itching to explore.
"I was hoping for an open-world adventure with tons of content, and I wasn't disappointed," a shopper reported. "After 100 hours, I still haven't finished the main story, because I keep finding other stuff I want to see and do! I played Odyssey for months until the min/maxing equipment got to me and felt more like Diablo than Assassin's Creed. Valhalla fixed this. All weapons are unique and you could go the whole game with your starting equipment if you want. If you want to get sucked into an adventure and forget...I highly recommend."

The Dyson Ball Animal 2 can change your entire cleaning experience—especially if you’re a pet owner. It’s a mighty upright vacuum cleaner that seamlessly stands up to stubborn pet hair and nasty allergens and dust, thanks to its sophisticated filtration system, tangle-fee turbines and hygienic bin with one-push eject. Just release the bin’s trap door over the trash, so its contents will stay out of the air.
Plus, this vacuum cleaner can also effortlessly glide across hardwood floors and carpets—as well as make sharp, hairpin turns with ease. This is because Dyson’s ‘Ball’ design can make the vacuum swivel and maneuver around tight corners, nooks and crannies.
“I love this vacuum! My Dyson Animal 2 is by far the best vacuum I have ever owned,” raved a five-star Dyson reviewer. “The first time I used it, it picked up so much dirt from an area rug that I had to take a picture of it. I couldn't believe how much dirt all my rugs had been holding...And it saves me time because, on the first go-round, it picks up all the dirt from two teenagers, two dogs, and a husband.”

"When I started teaching on Zoom, I had to look at myself all day and noticed that I had an actual bald spot about two inches back from my hairline right where my bangs ended, so every time I looked down, it was big as day!" a shopper noted. "After a few months of using this, it's really gone! Before, the hair all around there was really sparse, and now there's hair all over there. This is the only change I made. I can also see the difference in my husband's thinning hair. His bald spot is less noticeable. I hope it keeps working!"

These kicks — just $49 at the extended Labor Day sale at Zappos — have picked up plenty of accolades, including hundreds of five-star reviews. Even podiatrists rave about New Balance sneakers: Board-certified podiatrist Ernest L. Isaacson recommends New Balance sneakers due to their comfort and support, while Dr. Nelya Lobkova agrees that the brand is “great for prevention [of] generalized foot soreness.”
It's not hard to see why the shoe is so popular: It has a cushioned memory foam insert for extra padding on your feet, yet they're cloud-like and lightweight.
"This sneaker is so cute! I received many compliments," a shopper shared. "The color is neutral for my work uniform. The insole is very comfortable because I do a lot of walking. They're very light also."
