Excited for the weekend? Whether it’s the opportunity to kick back for a few days or the big game on Sunday that got you through the week, feel free to congratulate yourself: The next 48 hours are all yours.

One way to celebrate the start of a weekend? A great sale—and Amazon certainly didn’t disappoint. You can pick up everything you need to spruce up your home, wardrobe, even your mask collection, all on sale. It’s the best time to treat yourself, and you’ll save a few bucks while you’re at it, too.

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.)

Need a new TV? Amazon has this Insignia 24-inch Smart HD TV—Fire TV Edition on sale for just $100! The standout set delivers eye-popping colors and exceptional picture quality — both of which are rare in this price range. The audio, too, is top notch — and 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.”

On sale for $549 (was $599), the new Apple iPad Air comes with a large 10.9-inch Retina Display (the standard version and the iPad have a 10.2-inch display) and 64GB of on-board storage and 3GB of memory—so it’s more powerful and speedier than previous models. In just about every way, it’s bigger, faster, sharper and sleeker too. There’s a reason why it’s called an iPad Air: It’s lightweight, coming in at about one pound. It truly hits the sweet spot between power and design.

“I love this iPad,” raved a delighted Amazon shopper. “It’s lightweight, easy to use and the battery is long lasting. After knowing all that it can do, it is very well worth the price. I am very happy with this purchase and it was delivered in a timely manner with no issues.”

Need raw power? This late-2020 Apple MacBook Pro (the one with the TouchBar) is now on sale for $1,399 — $100 off — at Amazon. It has a 13.3-inch LED Retina backlit display with a QHD+ resolution. It’s armed with Apple’s new M1 Chip processor with 8GB of memory and a whopping 512GB of on-board storage. This MacBook Pro also comes with two USB-C ports, a headphone jack and a large Force Touch trackpad. It’s ideal for professionals and creatives, alike.

“I primarily use my MacBook Pro for music production and performance. As such, Logic Pro and myriad amp models and plugins are constantly in use on my machine,” shared a savvy Amazon shopper.

“The M1 chip blows the Intel chips out of the water in terms of loading speed, battery life and ability to handle large Logic projects with dozens of tracks, plugins, software instruments and live recordings. Battery life has also seen a significant improvement over my 2020 Intel machine. I am not quite getting double the battery life, but it's not far off. This isn't a huge deal for me, as my machine is typically stationary and a charging cable is readily available, but for someone who needs the portability, the difference is substantial.”

The Apple MacBook Pro is back in stock on March 10, but you can pre-order it now to lock in the low sale price. Amazon will notify you when it ships.

I’ve used a Roomba brand at my office and can say this one is way smarter, had better suction and a larger dustbin.”

In this madcap crossover, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Yoshi join forces with four friendly Rabbids (from the hit gaming franchise Raving Rabbids) in an wacky and fun adventure to save all of the Mushroom Kingdom from chaos and danger when a group of not-so-friendly Rabbids invade and try to conquer.

The award-winning role-playing game Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for the Nintendo Switch — for players ages 10 and up — finds Nintendo and game publisher Ubisoft join forces to deliver a wild co-op game that’s full of strategy and puzzles with new weapons and attacks that are fun for new and old Mario fans, alike.

“This game came far out of left field,” raved a delighted gamer. “Nevertheless, it's executed flawlessly. No RNG frustrations, no save scumming necessary. Lots of little nods to various Mario lore and history. Challenging scenarios, solid skill progression where I never felt over nor under-powered, and great artwork. The plot is horribly contrived but who cares. My three-year-old was riveted with every battle and she'd be the one composing the team...”

Right now, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is on sale for just $25, or $35 off on Amazon. That’s a whopping 58 percent off!

Say hello to your new weekend — and let’s face it, everyday — uniform. These buttery-soft high-rise leggings are made of a plush “peachskin” fabric that shoppers can’t stop raving about.

One shopper shared: “I'm officially obsessed with these tights! I am ordering them in every color. They are seriously the softest fabric I have ever worn and they actually fit really well...They are so comfortable!”

Your cat deserves her own palace. Enter the genius cat tree. With multiple levels for playtime and relaxation, this version is like the Bellagio for cats. Big enough for multiple kitties to hang, it features sisal posts to save your upholstery, and faux fur for the sophistication and comfort Baxter craves. No wonder over 10,000 Amazon reviewers gave this tree a perfect five stars.

“I have three cats and three kittens and they ALL love the cat tree!” one shopper shared. “Even my big fat cat climbs to the very top and doesn't seem to mind his sides rolling off — because it's not made for a cat his size. But it works for a cat his size. My kittens will pile on top of each other sharing a space. They love the boxes and they love the spires. They use the scratching post parts too!”
