Long weekends offer time to relax, get our lives in order, and...shop! The past year has been quite a ride—and you deserve a few goodies. Especially at these prices—in anticipation of spring just a few short months away, Amazon has been marking down all of last season’s styles (think outerwear, tech and TVs) to make room for new inventory. That translates to massive savings for us.

So whether you’re looking for TVs, mattresses, beauty essentials, vacuums, or even goodies for man’s best friend, you can score big this weekend at Amazon. We’re talking a brand new Macbook Pro for $250 off, Beats headphones for over $60 off, and so much more.

And 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.)

For the holiday weekend, Amazon has this Insignia 24-inch Smart HD TV—Fire TV Edition on sale for just $100! The TV delivers eye-popping colors and exceptional picture quality—both of which are rare in this price range. It really stands out. The audio, too, is top notch. Plus, Alexa is included in its remote. So if you’re not a fan of endlessly scrolling through a grid of movie titles (and who is), you can just say, “Alexa, play Knives Out,” and she’ll make your wish come true.

“I am honestly very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV,” reports a satisfied Amazon shopper. “As far as clarity goes, I believe HD720p is plenty for this screen size. I’m a bit of a TV snob and the lower clarity is not noticeable in this size.”

The dual rear camera system includes a 12-megapixel super-speed pixel model paired with a 16-megapixel ultra-wide shooter. You won’t believe how good your photos look.

“Noteworthy performance,” shared a delighted shopper. “Love this phone; very responsive processor. Takes excellent photos and videos like a pro camera. The phone call quality is unbelievable—very clear...”

And even if, by some chance, you do let your Powerbeats run out of juice, there’s a safety for that—a quick-boost five-minute charge that gives you enough get-go for a full hour of playback. It’s called ‘Fast Fuel,’ and it’s awesome!

Secure-fit ear hooks ensure they stay in place no matter what you’re up to, whether it’s walking around the block or hiking a trail. And speaking of which, no need to worry about rain or sweat—these earphones are water-resistant. Shoppers love that there’s a cable keeping the two earbuds together too.

“Powerbeats are hard to beat—wow,” shared a five-star reviewer. “The best workout set I have now—no falling off the ear, the sound quality is great. I like the wired connection between the two pieces just in case I get into a metal head-banging session while walking the neighborhood and they do slip off.”

If you want a perfect blowout but don’t know your way around a round brush, this nifty hot tool is for you. It’s the No. 1 best-seller in Amazon’s entire beauty section, and for good reason — it gives people with all hair types a smooth look without sacrificing volume.

“My hair is super thick, so I rarely blow dry it because it takes so dang long. Well, not with this bad boy! I can pretty much get my hair straight and dry in around 20 minutes. This thing is heavy, so it is a bit of a workout but nowhere near as tedious as having to use both hands to hold a brush and blow dryer,” writes a five-star reviewer. “I love this thing so much I bought it for my mom who straightens her hair every single day and she also thinks it's a game changer.”

The sweatshirts are soft and warm, without being too hot; warm enough to go outside without a coat on a chilly day. The colors are bright and very true. I've washed all of them a couple of times already, and no fading occurred.”

There’s a time and a place for bold prints — and for the other days, there’s the LBD of face masks.

Bonus: They come in elegant black or your choice of nine other fun colors.

“This product has improved my impression on wearing masks through this pandemic. This mask I can tolerate and wear all day at work, keeping my clients and self safe. 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.
