“This game is lots of fun if you’re into Super Mario Bros but want a nice visual enhancement,” shared one discriminating gamer. “You can do co-op with friends and family if you have extra Joy-Cons, as there are multiple characters....

"Wi-Fi" stands for "wireless fidelity," but what good is your home hookup if straying away from your router means dropouts and lost connections? On sale for $20 (was $35), the TP-Link AC750 Wi-Fi Extender (RE220) extends the reach of your home’s Wi-Fi network while also giving it a much-needed speed boost. This little guy can cover an additional 1,200 square feet and deliver up to 750Mbps (megabytes per second) for lightning-quick internet service.
"My bedroom is a Wi-Fi dead zone. It doesn't matter how good my router is, I will frequently lose connection altogether or get a really weak signal," shared one happily roaming reviewer. "I put this extender... between the dead zone and my router, and the connection is amazing.... I generally have two or three bars compared to one bar. Most importantly, my bandwidth speed is anywhere from three to eight times as strong as it was without the extender."

Best kitchen sales
What does everybody love? Barbecue! What does everybody hate? Dangerously undercooked meat! Every chef and savvy home cook knows that the smartest, safest way to check if your meat is ready is by measuring the internal temperature — and the most accurate way to do that is with a meat thermometer. This one is an Amazon's Choice, and it provides an ultra-fast (and, more importantly, super accurate) read on the temperature of your steaks, burgers and poultry. It can detect temps up to 572 degrees Fahrenheit.
"This tiny little thermometer will change the way you cook," a shopper shared. "I used to end up guessing temperatures because it's a hassle to check the temperature on all the steaks, and who the heck has time to check every burger and brat? I used to put an oven thermometer in a medium-sized steak and just pull them all off the grill when that one was done. Now I can cook each one to the correct temperature with almost no effort."

They have a flattering high waist, an oversized pocket(!), and a leg-lengthening ankle crop. And at just 12 bucks, you'll never find a better match of quality and value.

There's sooo much we can't wait to forget about the pandemic, but here's one lesson that we're keeping with us: the need for hand sanitizers. This 12-pack of Purell — which was worth its weight in gold this time last year — will see you and your family through for months, plus it's the perfect size for high-traffic areas like entryways, reception areas, conference rooms, classrooms, and even just to keep in your car.
"It's their normal gel that I have come to love so much," one cootie-free shopper shared. "The dishwasher bottles ours came in are fantastic, because the tops open and close easily, seal reliably and don't leak. Dispensing it is not that bad, just upend it and either bob the bottle a couple of times or squeeze ever so gently. I can easily pick up the bottle in just my right hand, open it, dispense it, close it again all in one hand."

If you're a pet parent, you know how important it is to ensure that your pups are eating right. While most puppy snacks are loaded with preservatives, dyes and all sorts of nasties, these bites, from Amazon in-house brand Wag, are made (in the USA) with chicken as the very first ingredient.
