We spotted impressive savings on everything from our favorite waterproof mascara and a top-rated pressure cooker to, yes, even a popular desk that will be perfect for your favorite at-home student. Whether you’re perusing these sales before dinner or you’re just in need of some retail therapy, settle in and keep scrolling to scoop up the five best deals we found on Amazon this Friday.
1. Nearly half off: One of our favorite reciprocating saws
While you may not think of Amazon as a home improvement destination, it actually plays host to some of the most impressive sales we’ve ever seen on power tools. Today is no exception, as the web retailer is running some incredible deals on Black + Decker gadgets, like this 20V MAX BDCR20B reciprocating saw, once $79.99, and now $42.36 with the 47% discount. Complete with a 4.5-star rating from more than 1,000 shoppers, we featured this tool in our roundup of the best reciprocating saws because of its surprising maneuverability and light weight. At just 4 pounds, this model performed well during our plywood obstacle course and we noted that it had a tight turning radius. Though it didn’t wow us when it came to endurance or comfort, overall, we found that the 20V MAX was a solid saw, especially considering its price point and size.
The savings don’t stop there, either: Other drills and combo kits from the brand are also on sale today, including this Black + Decker 12V MAX 60-piece drill and home tool kit, now $59, which is down nearly $20.99 from its original $79.99.
2. Down $10: This top-rated desk that’s perfect for at-home studies
For students that will be learning from home in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s a decent chance a new study setup might be in order. You can snag this Tribesigns computer desk, usually $159.99, for $149.99. This 55-inch by 23.6-inch furniture piece is available in a few different wood washes, such as rustic brown, walnut and black. Featuring metal legs and a wide desktop, it’s garnered a 4.4-star rating from more than 3,800 Amazon shoppers who loved how easy it was to assemble. Buyers also hailed this office essential as being the perfect size, noting that it was super sturdy, too.
3. $30 in savings: Our best value pick for pressure cookers
When we tested the Crock-Pot express crock multi-cooker, it was a clear winner based on its price point and diverse cooking abilities. While the Instant Pot Ultra 10-in-1 6-quart ($149.95) took home the crown as the best overall pressure cooker, this one was a close runner-up. We liked that we could manually adjust its temperature and pressure settings and its nonstick inner pot. Performance-wise, it passed every test we put it through with flying colors, expertly cooking soups, risottos and yogurt from scratch. Cleanup was also a breeze, allowing us to execute super quick weeknight dinners. Though this Crock-Pot pressure cooker typically sells for $99.99, you can currently nab it here for $69.99. (Pst: You can get it for an even more impressive discount in a black stainless hue at Kohl’s, where it falls to just $49.99 when you enter coupon code SAVEBIG at checkout.)
4. Less than $15: This mold- and mildew-resistant shower curtain
Every now and then, it’s important to replace your shower curtain to reduce the risk of mold. If you’re overdue for a swap, this AmazonBasics mold- and mildew-resistant shower curtain will cost you less than $15 on sale, having dropped from $12.30 to $11.49. It’s currently available in four different colors and patterns, plus, it can be used as a curtain or a standalone liner. It’s got rust-proof metal grommets along the top header, too, so you won’t have to worry about spending more money on the curtain hooks, either. Boasting more than 5,800 reviews from Amazon shoppers and a collective 4.6-star rating, customers loved this best-seller for its incredible value.
5. 15% off: Our favorite waterproof mascara
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to spend tons of cash on a waterproof mascara to get one that lengthens, strengthens and gets the job done. When we tested out the best of the best, we found that Tetyana Naturals’ 4D Silk Fiber Lash mascara, which will run you less than $20, came out at the top of the heap. In fact, you can even get it on sale right now, as it’s normally priced at $17.99 and drops to $15.29 for a limited time. Application was a breeze, as the formula went on smoothly and delivered bold, voluminous lashes. Even better, it held up well in our waterproof tests, never once budging when wet or durinsweaty workouts.
