Raise your hand if you haven’t done your holiday shopping yet, folks! There’s still time to get the perfect gifts for everyone on your list, and thanks to Amazon’s 12 Days of Deals, you can save quite the chunk of change right now on a ton of popular products ranging from Bose headphones to $1 Echo Dots. Yes, you read that price correctly.
Of course not everything you come across on Amazon is going to be a standout deal, but that’s why we take the time to analyze prices and compare them to deals at other retailers, so our readers can be the savviest shoppers around. We put our deal hunting hats on to find you the top 5 deals you can get on Amazon this Wednesday.
1. Save $70: The best noise-canceling headphones
When it comes to the top-performing noise-canceling headphones on the market, the world is divided. This year, the Sony WH1000XM3 over-ears outperformed the Bose QuietComfort 35 Series II in our labs to take the top spot as the best noise-canceling headphones, because we liked how the level of active noise-cancellation (ANC) is completely customizable. Then Bose released a firmware update in the Bose Connect app that made the ANC for the QC 35’s customizable too. The drama is real.
The competition continues as both of them are on sale for basically the same price right now. The QC35’s are just $279 while the WH1000XM3 are literally a dollar cheaper at $278. Ultimately this will come down to brand loyalty for most of you because both headphones are incredible, but all we can tell you is that you’ll be happy either way you go.
2. Under $10: a new Echo Dot and a month of Amazon Music Unlimited for $8.98
Amazon just brought back one of the most insane deals ever on the Echo Dot, as a package deal with one month of Amazon Music Unlimited for $8.98 for Prime members. This again marks the lowest price our favorite affordable Amazon echo speaker has ever been, and honestly, we don’t ever expect it to be cheaper than .99 ¢. If you shop this crazy deal, just remember to cancel Amazon Music Unlimited before the month is up, unless you’d like it to auto-renew for $9.99 a month. But with your new Echo, you can just have Alexa remind you. Given all that Alexa brings to the table—we’re talking over 50,000 skills—we think this is entirely worth the money you’ll probably spend on lunch today.
3. $80 off: This adorable mini KitchenAid stand mixer
The Artisan Mini is essentially the Baby Yoda of KitchenAid Stand Mixers; it’s incredibly cute, but don’t let its size deceive you, as it’s also very powerful. While the Mini is about 20 percent smaller overall than the classic Artisan with a 3.5-quart mixing bowl, it has the same 250W motor as the larger models and can still yield 5 dozen cookies. Due to its lightweight, compact size, we think it would make the perfect gift for those apartment dwellers with a smaller kitchen. Today you can snag it for just $179 in the orange, honeydew, hot sauce, and graphite colors.
4. Save $120: Our favorite toaster oven
Let’s get one thing straight—the Breville Smart Oven Pro is no mere toaster oven. It’s arguably just as powerful as your real oven, only limited by its size. You can accomplish essentially any baking task with it, from roasting succulent meats to baking the perfect pizza, and it’ll cook whatever you throw at it evenly and efficiently. We named it the best toaster oven as we also loved its sleek LCD screen and 10 different cooking options. As one of Amazon’s Deals of the Day, you have until midnight tonight to snag the silver version for just $180, and have an extra oven for cooking all your side dishes in during the holidays.
5. Stock up and save: Pet food and treats including Greenies, Temptations, and more
Don’t forget about your pets on your list this year! Your furry friend deserves some tasty treats as well, and with this Amazon Gold Box Deal, now’s the perfect time to save up to 35% on their favorites, including Greenies Dental Dog Treats, Temptations Crunchy Cat Treats, Cesar’s Wet Dog Food, and more.
