As we head into the weekend, there's never been a better time to look around and take stock. Is your TV looking a little too small for your space? Is your closet looking a little sparse? Is your pup such a good boy that he deserves some treats? Well, then, your path is clear: It's time to do a spot of shopping. Not "someday soon" or next week — this weekend. And the best way to do it? With Amazon's massive sale.

There are big markdowns to be had in every dang category — we're talking tech, beauty, gaming, even robot vacs. Of course, the biggest and best of them won't be around for long, so strike early and often.

Plus, if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? Now, don't you fret; you can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Ready? Set? Let's shop!

On sale for $698 from its original price of $800, this Sony 55-inch 4K Ultra HD LED TV is a sturdy midrange model from the venerable electronics giant. Its massive 55-inch 4K display is clear and detailed, with vivid color. Sony’s world-class Processor X1 powers true-to-life visuals, while its HDR (High Dynamic Range) settings make sure colors stay bright. 

"Upgrading from a nine-year-old Samsung TV, this TV was quite a wow moment," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "Pure amazement! Watching a Hitchcock movie from 1955, we were just blown away at how crisp and colorful the picture was. The menu is easy to navigate and I had everything dialed in in about ten minutes...One feature I do love and which works extremely well is the volume balancing. In a lot of older movies the music is often times extremely loud compared to dialogue, but this evens it our perfectly!"

The over-the-ear headphones that won’t budge when you’re furiously treadmilling, lying on a weight bench or even stretching back over a physio ball? The Mpow Flame2 Bluetooth Headphones — which are on sale for just $14, or $36 off with on-page coupon and promo code E2ODM5ZQ at checkout — they offer top-notch audio and a great fit. They’re designed to stay in place no matter what.

The Mpow Flame2 Bluetooth Headphones deliver exceptional audio clarity with booming bass at a shockingly low price. They’re specifically designed for active workouts like running, biking, or rowing. Plus, secure ear-hooks around each bud holds your headphones comfortably in place. 

And, brace yourself, some Amazon shoppers say these buds are better than Beats. "Bought these to replace a pair of $200 Beats Pro and another pair of very expensive bluetooth headsets. The expensive ones died after just a few weeks of use," shared a satisfied shopper. "...These not only worked but worked well...and have continued to work for months with heavy use. I use them for at least a couple of hours a day during a workout and sometimes up to six or eight hours as I work in the yard. They have proven to be longer-lasting with near the same quality sound as the expensive ones, at a one-tenth of the price..."

Although Apple’s full-sized, entry-level iPad is great for casual use, the Apple iPad Pro is for when you need more power and speed...when you need a little bit more oomph. And here's some wow to go with that oomph: The latest 12.9-inch, Wi-Fi-only model is on sale for $999, or $100 off, at Amazon.

The Apple iPad Pro comes with a larger 12.9-inch Liquid Retina display (the standard version has a 10.2-inch display). It's also brainier and brawnier than previous models, with 256GB of on-board storage instead of the standard's 32GB, thanks to Apple's latest A12Z Bionic chip. In just about every way, it’s bigger, faster, sharper and sleeker.

"Amazing! The perfect device for work and play," raved a savvy shopper. "The sheer power in this handheld device (albeit a large one) is astounding. More powerful than my once state-of-the-art MacBook Pro, with an insane portability factor. I actually returned my 11-inch Pro (which was still great) because the extra 1.9-inch of real estate is truly a game changer!"

Amazon just knocked a whopping $40 off NBA 2K21 for PlayStation 4 — it’s down to just 20 bucks. The game features all 30 NBA teams and players, including Zion Williamson, Damian Lillard, LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Steph Curry, James Harden and Gordon Hayward.

NBA 2K21 has all the gameplay you want, from multi-player online to one-on-one (you versus the game itself). And...well, hello, ladies! For the first time ever, it features WNBA teams as well, with players like Brittney Griner, Elena Delle Donne, Liz Cambag and Nneka Ogwumike. Right now, the price is more than right. Moms and dads love it too.

"My 6- and 16-year-olds love the game, I even played it, and I'm 40," shared a delighted parent. "The game is a little complicated at first, just figuring out how to maneuver your players, but my sons are both really good at it..."

Right now at Amazon, you can score the Gosund Wi-Fi Smart Plug four-pack for just $14 with the on-page coupon and promo code ABVYP87G. You're looking at a nearly half off discount altogether — that amounts to $20 off and a cost of just $3.50 per plug!

For the uninitiated, a smart plug is a small doodad that fits between a power socket and an appliance — think coffee maker, TV, even a lamp — and enables you to operate said device through an app or a smart home hub or smart speaker with Alexa or Google Home built-in. So it empowers you to direct everyday tasks like turning off the lights without getting up from the couch or brewing java from bed in the morning with almost no effort.

"Really love these," raved a savvy shopper. "It’s nice to be able to schedule lights to power on and off at particular times. I have one connected to my hair tools to turn off in a certain amount of time as well. I’m always frantic when I forget and now it's no longer an issue. Setup was incredibly easy. There is a scan code on the box to download the app onto your phone."

At just $70 with on-page coupon (was $100), the Amrobt Robot Vacuum Cleaner is one of the most wallet-friendly robovacs on Amazon right now. And versatility comes along with that value: It works on all sorts of household surfaces, including hard wood, parquet, tile, laminate floors and more.

Amazon shoppers love that it can map out your floor plan and remember it every time its cleans. It's also super quiet too. "The first time it is used, it will plan the home itself and then clean it.," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "The noise is very low, so my baby's sleep is not disturbed at all. As a robot sweeper, it's the sweetest thing I've ever used. Love it!"

Need a monitor for your work laptop? Want to go untraditional? This Apeman LC350 Mini Projector is on sale for $50, or $30 off, with on-page coupon at Amazon. This mini digital projector is small yet mighty, with 4,500 lumens of brightness and Full HD resolution at 1080p. It can project movies up to 15 feet high on a flat surface, like a projection screen, a wall, a ceiling or even a big bed sheet. Imagine your desktop displayed this big! 

Dual speakers turn out superb audio — though you might want to connect portable speakers for a little more power when watching outside. We love that its cooling fan is nearly silent.

"I have a 60-inch roll-down screen hanging over the closet in my computer room/office, reported a happy shopper.. When I want to show my wife something, I can just project it on the wall. This projector is perfect for that."

I got soooo tired of baked, roasted, and sautéed foods. This indoor grill has made all the difference in my cooking. The heat-up time is quick, temps are accurate, and cleanup is super easy — you just put the grill grate, lid, and grease tray in the dishwasher."

The tone is much more even and my skin much brighter."

Ever wonder if it's time to swap your pillows? Then it's time to swap your pillows. This set is filled with down alternative, and has a plush cooling exterior (so you're not constantly flipping to get to the cool side. They're also specially designed to never go flat, so they have that hotel-quality plush feel every single night right in your own home.

"Pillows are tough, because everyone has different preferences, which makes them difficult to buy online," one shopper opined. "Personally, these are exactly what I was looking for. I am a side sleeper, so I prefer something soft but filled enough that you won't end up with your head on the bed by the end of the night. These are soft, but they have a lot of filling that keeps your head supported so that I don't end up with a kinked neck when I sleep on my side. You can tell they're great quality, and I fully expect these will hold up for a long time."
