1. 31% off: Our favorite streaming device

The 5 best Amazon deals you can get this weekend

If you spend hours binge-watching your favorite TV shows and movies on various streaming platforms, you’ll want to invest in our favorite streaming device, the Roku Ultra. Once $99.99, it’s now just $69, grabbing you $30.99 in savings. We particularly liked the intuitive remote, which included nifty shortcut buttons for Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and Sling. We also liked that it has volume controls for your TV, as well as a headphone jack, so you can tune into any volume you want while everyone else turns in for the night. We praised the interface too, which follows a more direct, app-based approach over the Fire Stick’s recommended Amazon content. Since it’s a rather simple interface, it’s also easier for non-tech-savvy people to use. That said, if you’re a fan of the more elaborate Apple and Google TV interfaces, which include plenty of recommended content and personalized suggestions, you might find this streaming device to be lacking. Still, its budget-friendly price and support for Dolby Vision and Atmos make this a must-have.

Get the Roku Ultra (2020) for $69.99 (Save $30.99)

2. A 20% markdown: This popular bug zapper for your outdoor space

The 5 best Amazon deals you can get this weekend

Summer is almost here—which means it’s almost mosquito season. To prevent your skin from being covered with large red, itchy blotches every time you lounge in your backyard, consider the Severino bug zapper, now down from $49.99 to $39.99. This item has a 4.7-star rating from more than 11,100 Amazon customers, with many complimenting how effective it was at filling the bug tray with mosquitoes and flies after just a few hours. Since the insects are disposed of in the tray, it makes for easy cleanup, according to recent Amazon shoppers. This product also features a hanging hoop, so you can choose to either set it down or hang it up on your porch come nightfall.

3. Less than $20: This must-have egg maker

The 5 best Amazon deals you can get this weekend

Looking for an easy way to prepare your morning breakfast? You’ll want the Dash Rapid egg cooker (six egg capacity), now marked down from $19.99 to $17.99 for a 10% discount. (Note that you can also get it for $13.99 at World Market.) We tested the brand’s larger, 12-egg Dash egg cooker ($29.99), and found that it produced perfectly hard-boiled and poached eggs, as well as light and fluffy omelets—as long as the water levels were filled correctly. There’s no flipping or spatulas required, so it’s the perfect gadget for cooking newbies. We did find that getting poached eggs out of the tray without puncturing them proved to be a bit of a hassle, but it was also super easy to clean up if we made a mistake. Not to mention, this top-rated device has a 4.6-star rating from more than 9,650 ratings, so if you regularly make breakfast for multiple people at once, you need this in your kitchen arsenal.

4. Save $30: This top-notch Apple tablet

The 5 best Amazon deals you can get this weekend

Dubbed our pick for the best-valued tablet on the market, the Apple iPad (32 GB) (2020) is now on sale from $329 to $299, saving you $30. This entry-level device is great for social media, streaming, web browsing and more, all without commanding a high fee. Despite being an older model, its long battery life trumped that of even higher-priced ones, lasting well past eight-hours while watching a movie on loop and leaving its more expensive competitors in the dust. It also featured a bright, LCD display and has the classic home button for those of you that miss Apple’s older classic design. You’ll be happy to know that it’s compatible with Apple’s Smart Keyboard ($149) and the first-generation Apple Pencil ($94), too. If you’re looking to use it for productivity purposes, you can sketch, draw or type away your emails all on this budget-friendly sleek device.
