OK, the weekend's behind us, but Monday needn't be a glum slog. In fact, it's a great time for some retail therapy, and we're here to help: Our team has scoured Amazon to put together a rundown of today's top deals for you. "Like what?" you ask. Well, you can score an AncestryDNA kit for 40% off and a megapopular electric blanket at a discount of nearly 50%. Or perhaps you'd like to try out a massage gun for just $26 (nearly 60% off)! How about state-of-the-art on-ear wireless headphones from JBL for just $25 (that's half off)? And that's just for starters — read on and brighten up the start of your week.
Give the gift of personal history this holiday with the AncestryDNA kit. If you have unanswered questions about your family history or you're just curious about where all traits came from, this kit can help you fill in some blanks. Just ask any of the 64,000+ five-star fans.
"After years of wondering, I finally found my biological father," shared a pleased shopper. "My mother was unsure who my Father was (or was withholding information). Thanks to Ancestry, I was matched with my Aunt (my Father’s sister) who was able to get me in touch with my Father. It’s great to finally be able to put the pieces together. I would highly recommend if you’re looking to tighten up some loose ends in your family history."
When the temperatures drop, you don't want to turn the heat up to 90°F — yet somehow that can feel like the only way to stay warm. With the Tefici Electric Heated Blanket, you can turn down the thermostat and turn up the cozy — it's the snuggle pal that'll get you through the colder months. Nearly 8,000 five-star fans rave about it.
"Love this for cold nights, and when my feet are ice cold for no reason," wrote a rave reviewer. "It stays on for four hours and automatically turns off, so it will not last all night. My dog loves to curl up on this while it’s on. Was skeptical about washing it due to it being an electric blanket, but I’ve washed and dried it multiple times and it’s still like new!"
Audiophiles claim that if you want a deeper audio experience, go with on-ear headphones. And we're inclined to agree. JBL's Tune 510BTs offer the brand's signature Pure Bass sound, wireless Bluetooth 5.0 streaming and excellent battery life. If you have travel plans coming up, they are perfect for long flights.
“These are very good headphones, and I don't just mean based on the price,” said one shopper. “These are all-around great headphones! I had Beats for four years that just fell apart. Searched on a budget and decided on these, and I don't feel like I am sacrificing at all. Very comfortable. Not tight on my head at all. I travel on airplanes twice a month, so I wear these for hours on end. No earache or head pressure."
With more than 8,000 five-star fans, the Kelices Massage Gun is popular for good reason. It lasts up to 15 hours on a full charge (but will automatically shut off after 10 minutes to protect your health and its longevity). And it offers an array of heads and speeds to target your specific issues.
“I’m 42 and I box for exercise and cardio about 60-70 minutes, six days a week,” wrote a satisfied shopper. “I had no idea I needed this massage gun, but I am such a fan. This is going to relax and relieve pain in even the tightest and sorest of muscles.”
If you’re searching for a comfy way to combat the arctic blasts coming your way, this hooded fleece cardi is the warm hug you'll need to get through the rest of fall and into winter.
"I work from home and keep my thermostat low," shared a happy shopper. "This is perfect for layering to keep warm. I have hot flashes, so I notice when clothing holds in heat and makes me sweat. This sweater manages to be warm and not too hot at the same time! Super soft too! It doesn’t close in the front but it does stay wrapped pretty well while I’m sitting at my desk. If I decide I want it to close, I’ll get some of that loop and toggle things to sew on. Easy peasy."
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
