1. Nearly 50% off: A cooling pillow we rely on for sweat-free nights

Hot sleepers know that staying cool and sweat-free is essential to a solid night’s sleep—but finding the right products to help you achieve that state can be a tall order. When we tested the Tempur-Cloud Dual Breeze, we were pleasantly surprised to find that it was comfy, supportive and among the best pillows on the market as far as wicking away moisture and regulating our temps as we got our beauty rest. In fact, we noted in our review that the only two downsides to this plush memory foam pick were its limited washability (its case is fully washable but the pillow itself is spot-clean only) and its typically high price tag of $169 and up. Right now, however, you can save nearly 50% on it at Amazon, whittling the price of the Queen option from $169 to $89.64 and the King size from $209 to $105.65 for savings of 47% and 49%, respectively,
2. Less than $20: One of our favorite flash lights

Whether you’re in the car or at home, having a trusty flashlight on hand for emergencies is essential. That’s why you’ll love the instant 17% savings Amazon is offering on the Anker Bolder LC40—the best value flashlight we tested in our roundup—dropping it down from $22.99 to a cool $18.99. We loved this one in particular for its rechargeable battery, which offered more power and a longer-lasting shine than many others on the market requiring AA or AAA batteries. It also features a scalloped bezel, which is ideal for situations involving self-defense or exiting a vehicle. Note that you can snag it at Walmart for the same price.

4. $11 off: The top-rated Cricut machine that’s on everyone’s holiday wishlists
We were stoked to find this deal today. (Photo: Amazon)
DIY-lovers know that when it comes to crafting homemade goodies, the Cricut reigns supreme. If the typically hefty price tag has kept you from clicking “add to cart” on one of these do-it-all machines, you’ll be thrilled that Amazon has the Cricut Joy on sale right now. This cute, compact version of the beloved internet sensation, regularly $179.99, is going for $169. While we didn’t think the larger, slightly pricier Cricut Explore Air 2 (also on sale for $179) was quite worth the spend at its full price of $227 for hobby crafters only, we found it easy to set up and use. We also conceded that it yielded amazing results, with the machine completing even the most intricate of tasks. With close to 2,000 5-star ratings on Amazon alone, this smaller model clearly has the attention of creative gurus and beginners alike. And with the cheaper price tag and discount, it just might be enough to change our minds.
