It’s true: There’s just over 60 days left till Christmas. That’s not a lot of time to get started on gift shopping, and with how unpredictable the past year has been, you’d be wise to not take any chances with shipping delays or shopping for gifts last-minute. Sure, some of those ‘gifts’ might be for yourself, but waiting too long may mean missing out on some really great deals.

Pull out your shopping lists, people. We found some amazing deals this weekend that you’ll actually want to buy. We’re talking a gorgeous 32-inch TV for just $167, smart plugs for $25, and so much more. Whether you’re shopping for yourself, for friends, family, or someone else, you won’t want to miss out on these savings.

Here are the best deals to shop this weekend.

On sale for $167 (was $230), this Samsung 32-inch HD Smart LED TV is a winner, thanks to ‘Purcolor’ settings for an excellent and vibrant picture quality with sharp detail and image clarity. It also has impressive and full audio with dual speakers included.

Translation: Movies and TV shows just look and sound great on this TV. In fact, it comes with video streaming built-in, so you can watch the latest and greatest from Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, Disney+, HBO Max and much more out-of-the-box. This Samsung TV is also ideal for a bedroom, guest room or even as a spare.

“This Samsung model was purchased as a spare TV for our basement lounge area. It fits the bill perfectly for us,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “The set up was quick and easy. The Smart TV feature has worked out really well for us as we stream Amazon TV and Netflix.”

Amazon shoppers are loving them. “Really impressed with the quality of these earbuds. I've used them on my iPhone XR. Connecting is very straightforward but more importantly the audio quality is great. I find them to be comfortable even with extended use,” wrote a satisfied reviewer.

Right now, you can score this Teckin Wi-Fi Smart Plug (four-pack) for $25, or $21 off with on-page coupon at Amazon. That’s a sweet 46 percent discount—and breaks down to $6.25 per plug.

Here’s how these smart plugs work: Simply plug one of these smart plugs into a wall outlet, then plug in anything from a lamp or a TV to a coffeemaker. Connect the plug to your Wi-Fi network and use your phone to sync to the Teckin Smart app (it works with Android phones and Apple iPhones too). And that’s it. Now you can control just about anything in your home with your phone. Shoppers also love their shape.

“These oblong style plugs are perfect,” raved a delighted shopper. “I’ve been using the older round style Teckin plugs for a few years now and they work great. But two of that old style don't fit side by side in a standard wall outlet. With this new shape they are wider and shorter, so two plugs do fit in a single outlet. Now you can control two separate devices from one outlet without extra cords. Perfect!”

Tablets and smartphones

This is the Samsung Galaxy Tab A, an 8-inch tablet that’s the first real alternative to the iPad. It’s so easy to use and versatile, it just might convince iPad users to switch to Android altogether. And, it’s on sale for $109, or $41 off at Amazon.

This tablet weighs just over a pound and boasts 32GB of storage (expandable up to a whopping 512GB via microSD card), compared to Apple’s entry level 32GB (without expandability). On top of that, the Tab A’s 8-inch display has a full HD widescreen for immersive viewing, while the iPad is not widescreen at all.

“The iPad is bulky and, in spite of being an ‘Air’ model, it’s a bit heavy to lug around. And, as with any Apple product, eventually the battery life becomes ridiculously short,” shared a five-star Amazon reviewer. “This Galaxy has been a lifesaver. The battery life is amazing, the tablet is lightweight and, because it's a tablet and not a reader dedicated to a single company, I have the Nook, Kindle, Kobo and Google Play apps all working well in one place so I can choose my next book from whichever library I want.”

At just $150—that’s a downright ridiculous 42 percent off—this blender can crush up to 72 ounces of ice, fruit, veggies, you name it. It can make delicious frozen cocktails, yummy creamy soups, and of course, velvety smoothies that taste and look just like you paid double-digits for them at your local juice shop.

Shoppers compare this blender to more expensive versions, and say it comes out on top. And with this deal, you really can’t beat the price. Says one shopper:

“Less expensive than the other ‘premium’ blenders in this power range, but with more accessories... I know I wanted to make smoothies, and look at that, this came with TWO smoothie cups. I also wanted a food processor and WOW! This Ninja comes with an attachment for that as well! So between saving a couple of hundred dollars AND getting accessories I desired, this was the top choice for me.”

On sale for $170 (was $220), the Yeedi K650 Robot Vacuum is a powerful model that can seamlessly transition from cleaning carpets to hardwood floors to messes on kitchen tiles. Isn’t it time we gave our homes a really serious fall cleaning? This little guy makes it easy.

App-controlled, you can get it started with the push of a button on your smartphone or tablet. With up to 130 minutes of running time, it’s smart enough to charge itself when it gets low on juice. It even comes with an extra-large dust bin that can hold up to 27 ounces of dust, dirt, pet hair and other icky things around your home.

“I have multiple cats and dogs. Normally they freak out when I use a traditional vacuum—however, my cat was following this robot around as it cleans,” noted a five-star reviewer. “It would go around the room and clean up the hairs and litter my cats leave behind. Works great on my carpet. The cleaning brush is easy to take off and the trash bin is easy to dump out.”

This oversized knit from Pink Queen is essentially a blank canvas. You can wear it with leggings or jeans, or just pair it with tights. It has a roomy turtleneck and a loose, oversized fit that looks great both belted or worn loose. The style even has side pockets.

“This is by far one of my favorite Amazon clothing purchases,” one shopper noted. “The sweater material itself is soft and thick, and the quality of the design is great. Pair this with OTK boots and you have a great fall/winter look. I ordered the burnt orange/rust color and love it.”

“I bought this for my Black Lab to have while camping at the beach,” one shopper shared. “He's 70 lbs. and it fits him well especially after swimming in the Chesapeake Bay. Dries out quickly, wash and dry once home and it even has a bag it folds up in so easy to stow in our RV and is convenient to pack and carry. Love it!”
