October may have just begun, but before you know it, holiday shopping will be in full swing — and you probably have a long list of people (naughty or nice) you want to buy something for. So why not get a jump on the crowds and be this year’s holiday G.O.A.T. by getting them what they want before that supply chain runs dry and everyone gets stockings full of I.O.Us.
To avoid this disastrous scenario, we’ve partnered with Walmart for its Deals for Days event (running now through November), so you can take time to look, decide and save on everything from vacs to arcade games. That means you’ll be home snoozing while everyone else is tearing down the aisles.
The following are a few choice selections you probably want to add to cart ASAP. Let’s get started!
1. At nearly 50% off, this vac leaves others in the dust
$550 Save $265
It’s time for your cleaning routine to get smart. This genius device will get floors spotless then head to the charging base to empty its canister into the bagless base. And you don’t have to empty that debris for weeks (yes, really!)– it can hold multiple session’s worth of dirt.
One happy customer asks “Why did I wait so long to start this relationship?” adding, “I purchased this because I have two dogs, a husband that works in construction, and a 16 year old son who has no idea what it means to wipe his feet before entering the house… Before Sharkey entered my life, I would have to change my mop water 5-6 times AFTER I gave it a good vacuum first…Now that Sharkey helps me with keeping the dirt at a minimum, I only have to change my mop water once when I clean. I can even tell a difference in how my house smells on the daily!”
2. This HP Chromebook is over $100 off
$199 Save $101
It may be tailored for students, but this Chromebook’s rugged design, long battery life and streamlined OS make it a must-have for the whole family. It’s also versatile and quick on the draw while juggling different apps simultaneously, so you can stream music, write an email and then go back to a doc you’re working on.
“This little workhorse is a Godsend,” raved this reviewer. “I ordered it almost on a whim, how good can a $98 laptop be? Well it can be awesome. It was a breeze to format my flash drive, and the battery lasts forever. The touch pad is easy to get the hang of and l was surprised not to miss a touchscreen, which is a good bit more money. Overall l am thoroughly pleased and recommend this highly.”
3. You’ll catch ‘Pac-Man’ Fever and save $30
$150 Save $30
Step right up to the counter-cade and gobble up points with ‘Super Pac-Man!’ Perfect for rec rooms, offices, dorm rooms or anywhere else you’d want to squeeze in some retro-gaming. Arcade1Up’s counter-cades are compact in size, but always an enormous amount of fun. Because we know this nostalgia needs saving. Also includes favorites ‘Dig-Dug’ and ‘Rally X’ games.
One legacy gamer wrote, “Falling in love. This arcade reminds me of my sweet youth.” Another raved, “The counter-cade machine consists of 4 games that are all great to play. The ability to save a high score even after turning the machine off is a bonus for me. Great for people who are nostalgic about playing classics like ‘Super Pac-Man,’ ‘Pac-Man,’ ‘Rally X,’ and ‘Dig-Dug.’ I highly recommend this counter-cade to anyone who wants to be entertained offline.”
4. At 67% off, this cream will have you looking and feeling fabulous
$67 Save $45
They’re not only known for their Red Door, but their superb skin care line. Elizabeth Arden’s rich, emollient protective formula means a difference you can feel and definitely see. The special blend helps smooth the skin’s surface, while its penetrating hydration keeps it soft and supple. Get visible improvements in only two to three weeks.
This ardent Arden fan wrote, “I’ve been using this product for years! Everyone tells me how good I look for my age!” Another echoed, “I’ve been using this item for over 50 years and love everything about it – its consistency, non-greasy feel and lack of perfumed smell. Perfect under makeup.” And the raves keep on coming! “I’ve used this moisturizer twice a day for years – it goes on smoothly, has a beautiful light scent and gets results. I often get compliments on my skin, and I attribute that to consistent use of this great product. I usually get it at a department store, but this price can’t be beat.”
5. This Cuisinart is a multi-functional kitchen workhorse
$148 Save $19
Yes, there is a healthy way to fry, and Cuisinart knows just how to do it. This clever number is actually a full-size toaster oven with a built-in air fryer. That means it not only bakes, broils and toasts, but it also lets you air fry right inside the oven. Air frying, which uses powerful ultra-hot air, is a healthier way to prepare delicious fried favorites, from wings and fritters to fries and shrimp.
This nouveau chef wrote, “We started with a smaller air fryer and quickly outgrew it. Our air fryer menu has expanded far beyond potatoes and wings, necessitating greater capacity. Enter Cuisinart. As empty-nesters, we can make an entire meal in our AirFryer Toaster Oven. Start with some cauliflower, air-fry for 5 minutes with your fave spices, add some chicken-breast strips, air-fry another 7-8 minutes and voilà! Dinner!” Recipe on the house!
