The Sceptre 50-inch Class 4K Ultra HD Android Smart LED TV is on sale for just $265—that’s nearly half off, the lowest price on the Internet right now, and an incredible deal for this model.

The picture quality is gorgeous, thanks to a 4K Ultra HD resolution at 2160p. This impressive display brings out all the true-to-life images and motion. HDR (High Dynamic Range) settings bring even brighter colors and deeper black levels, for a more immersive experience. This TV’s audio is crystal clear and well-balanced too. And Walmart reviewers absolutely gush.

“Thrilled! The picture is really nice. The speakers, wow! Not only does it sound great, but it is loud,” raved a five-star reviewer. “I tried turning it up to see how loud it would get and stopped at halfway because it was blasting (and still perfectly clear). It goes seamlessly between TV, Netflix, VUDU or a connected device like Nintendo Switch without delay...This Smart TV is the best one I've bought.”

With the phenomenal sound you’d expect from Apple, the best bargain on the AirPod menu is the standard Apple AirPods with charging case—now just $129 at Amazon. That’s $30 off the original price! While the buds are wireless themselves, you need to plug in the case to charge them.

Once juiced, these buds instantly pair with your iPhone. No scrolling, no fiddling with settings. You’re good to go, with five hours of battery life per charge.

Shoppers love their ease of use and voice-assistant controls. “Great for walking due to Siri based controls,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “Siri also lets me look up unfamiliar words while listening to audiobooks, which I love. Only earbuds I’ve ever found that stay in my ears, yet so light and comfortable that I forget I have them in...very, very good and reliable product, pairs perfectly every time with no dropped signal, really excellently designed all the way around.”

Reduced from $394 to just $199, the Shark IQ Robot Vacuum R100 is about to make your dream (of never vacuuming again) come true.

This smart little guy uses a navigation system to map your home’s landscape, so it doesn’t bump into walls, scratch up furniture or plummet down stairs. It tackles all sorts of surfaces effectively. It can sweep up your hardwood floors, then automatically switch for carpets and tiles as it moves about your home. It has up to 60 minutes of battery life per charge, plus it can also be controlled and scheduled by app or Alexa. For half off, you’d better grab this fast.

“The best vacuum I’ve ever had,” raved a savvy shopper. “The best feature is the grid pattern it follows. It will stop every once in a while to re-orient itself; if a piece of furniture is moved, then it resumes cleaning and never misses a spot. It also comes with floor tape to block off areas you don’t want cleaned. I like this vacuum so much I am getting one for my daughter. My floors have never been cleaner.”

If your cat decides that the only times she’s hungry is when you’re fast asleep, you’ll love this automatic feeder. The Roffie dispenses perfect portion sizes for felines (or pups, for that matter) keeping them on schedule and, ideally, out of your hair. It can hold up to 29 cups of dry food. When we get back to leaving the house for long stretches, you’ll really appreciate it. You never have to worry that your pets are starving, if you’re late getting home. You can even record a custom message that will play when its time for your pets to chow down. Best of all, the Roffie is on sale right now, down from $90 to just $60.

“This automatic cat feeder is heaven-sent,” one shopper reported. “First off, my cat isn't howling in my room for food at 4:00 am any longer because he knows that the food doesn't come from me anymore and he knows what time he can expect to be automatically fed. Secondly, the ability to portion size and set multiple times for feeding is so convenient.”
