The internet is a big place (shocking!), and online shopping is a MAJOR part of what most people do online. So, unsurprisingly, retailers big and small are constantly running sales and special discounts to entice would-be customers to click those buy buttons. Sounds great, right? It is, but it’s also a double-edge sword because not everything is going to be the best deal every day, and not every sale is always as good as it might seem.
To help you sort through the infinite options out there, we scour all the most popular online shopping destinations for noteworthy sales and price drops. We also track the price histories of award-winning products and things we’ve tested that wowed us so we can give you a heads up when the best products go on sale. This Monday, April 15, there are lots of great sales going on at places like Amazon, Nordstrom, and Massdrop, and we took a closer look to determine the best deals and sales online right now* so you can shop smarter.
*We also included a list of the other awesome sales and deals we found in our search at the end of this post, so you can keep shopping!
1. Save up to 43%: Three robot vacuums are on sale
Robot vacuums can help you keep your home tidier in between big cleaning days, and right now one of our favorite affordable brands, Ecovacs, is running a deal of the day on two vacuums as well as discounting a mop-and-vacuum combo model, and we’re thrilled. We’ve only tested one of these three models, but have generally had good experiences with the brand’s other models so we’re confident you’ll like any one of these.
Smartphone control and a longer battery life make this perfect for tidying up while you’re at work. (Photo: Ecovacs)
The Deebot 601 robot vacuum usually runs about $330 and is down below $200. It connects to an app on your phone over WiFi so you can start a cleaning cycle no matter where you are. It’s also got Alexa and Google Assistant compatibility if you like the idea of literally ordering your robot cleaning aid around the house.

The Deebot 711 is a bit pricier at its typical $450 cost because it has smart navigation that ensures it learns your floor plan and doesn’t clean a spot it’s already visited, making for a more efficient cleaning cycle. It also connects to an app, Alexa, and Google Assistant, and during the Deal of the Day it’s down to just $270, beatings its Black Friday low price by $30.

The final Ecovacs robot vacuum on sale right now is not a deal of the day, but it is a great price for a vacuum that can also mop your floors. In our tests, we found that it was very easy to switch between the two cleaning modes and that both did a decent job of cleaning floors, but the vacuum was a bit clumsy, often bumping into things as it navigated our obstacle course. However, for under $200, this typically $300 device is well worth your attention.

After what felt like an extra long winter, spring weather is finally starting to settle in and we’re shedding our extra layers to make room for lighter fabrics, brighter colors, and open-toe shoes. If you want to pick up a few new staples for the spring and summer season, we recommend starting your search at Nordstrom’s Spring Sale.
The retailer is discounting top brands like Madewell, J.Crew, BP., Nike, and adidas as much as 50% now through April 22. There are tons of things to choose from for women, men, and kids. I’m personally obsessed with this fun and flirty LBD from Chelsea28 ($74.49), the bright and light sweater from BP. ($24.49), and these fierce as heck Treasure & Bond booties ($49.96) that are all half off.
The one tip to shopping any Nordstrom sale? Don’t wait if you see something you love.

3. Save 50%: The best headphones for kids

Regular headphones for adults can be too loud for young, developing ears and risk causing actual, lifelong damage. Thankfully, volume-limiting headphones for kids exist, and we’ve tested all the top options to find the best. The winner? Puro Sound Labs.
We originally named the BT2200s as the best headphones for kids, but their recently launched noise cancelling PuroQuiet headphones usurped the crown because of the added isolation feature that’s especially great for children with sensory issues. This also helps make the volume limit sound louder since outside nosies won’t complete for attention.
Both pairs are absolutely amazing for kids, and they’re both half off on the Puro site right now, making it the perfect time to treat your kids to a new pair that they (and you) will love.
Get the Puro Sound Labs BT2200 Kids Headphones for $49.99 (Save $50)
Get the Puro Sound Labs PuroQuiet Over-Ear Active Noise Cancelling Headphones for $99.99 (Save $100)
4. Save 32%: One of the most amazing TVs we’ve ever tested

Here’s the thing I love about TVs these days: You don’t have to win the lottery or be mega-rich to own a really nice one anymore. And you can actually find great prices on impressive 4K TVs too, like this 65-inch Samsung QLED that’s under $2,000 at Massdrop right now. If you’ve never heard of Massdrop, it’s a site that crowdsources orders of popular products in order to secure lower-than-low prices for customers. It’s free to set up an account, and the discounts are typically lower than you’ll find elsewhere (but shipping does take a bit longer since they don’t ship until a “drop” ends).
Not only is this one of the best 4K TVs we’ve ever tested, but QLEDs are typically are priced so high we recommend looking for something more affordable that offers practically the sale quality, like the 2019 LG C9, which is the top contender for best TV of 2019 (we’re still testing it and other new TVs). But seeing this TV that originally cost $3,800 and typically sells for around $3,000 dip so low in price has us jazzed up. The 75-inch is also on sale for $3,000 (down from $5,000) if you want to go even bigger.

5. Save up to 70%: Wayfair’s Tax Refund Event is live

If you missed the actually impressive prices during Way Day, don’t worry. They’re back with another sale that covers lots of popular options. For instance, you can shop outdoor furniture for the steepest discounts up to 70% on things like patio furniture, loungers, and outdoor dining. You can also find price drops up to 65% on living room furniture as well as discounts on pet beds, lighting, area rugs, dining room furniture, and even “garden statues for animal lovers” (no joke—it’s happening).
6. Save 21%: An Alexa-enabled car charger

Having a charger on your car is never a bad idea, whether you take long trips or just putter around town. But having hands-free control over music and asking for directions is even better and that’s exactly what you’ll get with this highly rated Alexa-enabled car charger. The Roav Viva Pro features two USB ports and has a big old Alexa button (OK, so not totally hands-free, but you don’t need to avert your gaze to press it!). You can ask Alexa to direct you to the nearest gas station, play your audible audiobooks, get music on command, and more, and right now it’s $15 off its regular price.
7. Save up to 60%: Last day to shop Sur La Table’s cookware sale

Sur La Table is a great place to shop if you love top-shelf kitchen and cooking brands like All-Clad, Staub, Le Creuset, and ScanPan. It’s even better when those aspirational brands are discounted, and that’s what’s happening right now. This is the final day of the Cookware Sale, and you can find big savings on single items like frying pans as well as full sets of pots and pans.
