We've partnered with Walmart for their Deals for Days campaign and will be bringing you the best bargains daily through the end of the month so you can tackle your list with east.
There's something here for every homemaker, party host and kid. If you're looking for a better way to impress guests with incredible appetizers, The Pioneer Woman slow cooker pack is for you. But if you have a toddler on your shopping list in need of a toy that holds their attention for more than a few minutes, the furReal Walkalots dinosaur pet is what you want. Get something for everyone on the list or just shop for yourself. Just don't miss these sales while they last.
You have a smart TV, a smart watch and a smart phone. It's time to upgrade your vacuum next. The cordeless Tineco stick vacuum uses iLoop Smart Sensor Technology, which automatically adjusts suction power based on your mess. That means your battery life can stretch for up to 40 minutes on a single charge. There's also an LED light that will illuminate the path ahead so you can see just what mess is left to be captured.
At just seven pounds, you can easily vacuum both carpeting and hardwood floors and convert the stick into a handheld vacuum for hard-to-reach places (like stairs) or for use in your vehicle. The vacuum uses HEPA filter technology to trap allergens as well. Regularly about $300, this vac is half off at just $148 for a limited time.
Reviewers love it, even at full price: "I am hands down obsessed with the Tineco S10 wireless vacuum. It is very light and easy to use, I love that you can detach the hand held part very easily to get in and attack the hard to get to areas."
The Pioneer Woman brand is one that draws a buyer in because of its bright patterns and bold colors, but what keeps fans coming back is the high quality of each piece in the collection. There's no exception for this two-pack of slow cookers. Each set comes with a 4-quart and a 0.65-quart slow cooker. Use the larger one to cook meals and the smaller one to keep foods and dips warm for get togethers and parties. Ree Drummond's patterns are inspired by life on her ranch in Oklahoma, and the blue floral pattern and pink pattern on these cookers is no exception. They make a great gift for the home chef and your favorite hostess. They're on sale now, too, for an amazing price of just $15 for both the pair.
This reviewer says having both sizes is super useful: "This slow cooker duo has such beautiful print and is so useful from everyday cooking to party cookware. I used this set for a birthday party where I put in cocktail sausages in one pot, and spinach and artichoke dip in the other. I haven’t had issues with either and they are so easy to use."
Fans of the Ninja brand would spend top dollar for an appliance that does just about anything. But this Ninja Supra Kitchen System, which acts as both a food processor and a blender, is on sale for just $99. That's two of the highest quality appliances for less than $45 a piece essentially. This two-in-one product makes it easy to chop up everything from fruits and vegetables to ice. Then blend it all together and simplify the cooking process. With an 8-cup bowl, you can make large portions of food, whip up some pie or bread dough and blend up your favorite smoothies.
Reviewers are as impressed by this appliance as they have been other Ninja products: "This blender set is very versatile in the kitchen. I love that it can be a family size blender, a small portable blender, a food processor and a mixer. I can make pitchers of frozen drinks or a smoothie. I can easily chop up nuts for a recipe or mix cookie dough. This blender does everything. It has the perfect speeds for mixing everything the way I want it. It chops ice extremely well. I would definitely recommend this as in all in one appliance."
The party won't stop any time soon with this ION Bluetooth speaker that lasts an incredible 50 hours on a single charge. Using the ION Sound XP app, you can control your playlist from afar and change up the speaker's lighting features as well. It's the perfect way to set the mood whether you're cooking dinner at home alone or hosting the crew for a backyard football watch party. Normally $119, this water-resistant speaker is on sale for just $69.
This reviewer loves the radio feature and the way you can boost the bass: "I haven’t had a stereo in years and I thought I could get by with little Bluetooth mini speakers. They’re fine and all but this speaker blows them out of the water! First, love the light and colors. Second, it has a radio that gets clear reception of my favorite stations I only get to listen to in my car. Third, the BASS BOOST! If you want to feel the music, get THIS!"
Get your son or daughter the toy they've always wanted: a plastic dinosaur on a leash. This walkable pet lizard comes with a detachable leash that allows you to connect several other furReal Walkalots pets so you can practice walking several animals at once. When your dino is on the leash, you can push him forward and he'll bob along as his legs move and his head bounces. Of course no toy would be complete without dinosaur noises and sounds. This one is on sale for the incredible price of just $12.
Reviewers say their kids are fans: "My son who is a toddler absolutely loves this little dino and takes it everywhere with him. He loves walking with it and playing with the sounds...I like that the leash can attach up to 3 of the furReal walking pets so that way he can collect more. It is a very adorable toy and I think my son will play with it for quite a long time."

British Gambian artist Sona Jobarteh plays the kora, a string instrument that has been the preserve of men since the 13th century, passed down from father to son in a special set of families in West Africa for hundreds of years. That was until she decided to change things. After picking up the kora at the tender age of three, Sona has been playing for audiences across Europe, Africa and the United States since her 2011 album "Fasiya". She gained international success following her 2015 song "Gambia", which was released to celebrate Gambian independence. It became country’s unofficial national anthem with 24 million views on YouTube. The musician is in Paris to perform in the Afrocolor Festival. She speaks to Eve Jackson about becoming accepted as a female kora player, the importance of singing in the language of Mandinka on her new album "Badinyaa Kumoo" and creating the template for a new African education system at her school, the Gambia Academy.Read more on FRANCE 24 English

A man who died after staying at the Manston migrant processing centre in Kent did have diphtheria, the Home Office has confirmed. A government spokesperson said initial local hospital tests were false negatives, and follow-ups showed that diphtheria may have been the cause of the man's illness. Post-mortem examinations are ongoing, meaning the official cause of death cannot yet be confirmed.
