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 produce 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.”

There’s a time and a place for bold prints — and for the other days, there’s the LBD of face masks. Amazon’s No. 1 best-selling surgical mask features three-ply coverage with a melt-blown cloth surrounded by two non-woven layers for ultimate protection. Bonus: They come in elegant black or your choice of nine other fun colors.

I am a caregiver, so there is no break from covering my face. Me and this mask are married for 12 hours all day every day, haha. I have shared this product with my family members and other caregivers and workers that come out and visit the clients’ homes and they were able to tell a huge difference between their original mask and this product,” writes a rave reviewer.

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 it’s 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 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. Second, the ability to portion size and set multiple times for feeding is so convenient.”
