Ah Saturday. No work, hopefully only fun plans, and a world of opportunity in your near future. While you’re sipping your coffee or getting ready for a long, relaxing day of Netflix, why not do a little online window shopping too? I combed through all of Amazon’s top Lightning Deals, Deals of the Day, and other general sales to find the best offers on the best products, and I’ve narrowed it down to the top five so you can easily see the best sales you can find today.

If you’re ready to convert your library to a digital one that takes up less space, there’s a great sale on the best e-reader we’ve ever tested you should know about. The Kindle Paperwhite has a slim, lightweight design and a long-lasting battery that make it easy to always have a book or two with you for those quiet moments.
We love the Paperwhite for its functionality and affordability, and right now it’s the best price we’ve ever seen at just $80 (usually $120). The only catch is that you have to be an Amazon Prime member. If you’re not, you can always sign up for the free 30-day trial and simply cancel it before the trial is up to take advantage of the sale. Before you cancel, you might want to try all the other fun Prime benefits while you can too.

The weather is finally warming up, and that means it’s nearly frozen drink season! Whether you want to start drinking more nutritious smoothies or you love to celebrate your weekends with a nice frozen margarita, you need a solid blender that can pulverize ice like a pro. The BlendTec Total Classic, while it didn’t come out on top in our tests, did wow us with its ability to turn ice cubes into fluffy, snow-like shaved ice with ease. It also did a fantastic job blending liquids and was super easy to clean. The only major shortcoming was that its blades weren’t quite sharp enough to really grind up kale leaves and other hard produce. If you prefer a slightly chunkier smoothie, or if you really just want this for blending cocktails, the refurbished model is currently on sale for the best price we’ve seen since the holiday season for today only.

USB-C charging ports are becoming all the more common, and whether you’ve got a MacBook Pro, a new Android, a Nintendo Switch, or any other gadget that charges via USB-C, you might want to check out this deal on a portable charger. Not only does it have USB-C input and output, but it’s got QualComm Quick Charge capability, so you can juice up your devices faster.
RAVPower claims this backup battery can recharge an iPhone X 4.4 times and a Nintendo Switch 2.5 times. It also has two standard USB ports, and a micro USB port, as well as two micro USB cables, a micro USB-to-USB-C adapter, and a carrying pouch to keep it all organized.

Humidifiers are great to run in your bedroom while you sleep, and this ultrasonic cool mister from Crane is one of the best you can buy. We put it and a bunch of other popular models to the test and Crane was the top performer among the cool misters. This model was able to raise the humidity by 20 percent and can run for up to 15 hours on full blast. It also comes in a few fun colors so you choose your favorite, and right now it’s on sale for the lowest price we’ve seen since 2016.

This is one of the most popular party platters on Amazon. (Photo: Bambüsi)
If you enjoy hosting parties and want to take them up a notch, a fancy cheese board is just the ticket. The Bambüsi bamboo cheese board is a great statement serving platter that combines form and function, making it one of the more popular options on Facebook and a Reviewed reader favorite. With what I’ve dubbed a “cracker moat” along the outer edges and a built-in drawer for all the serving tools you need (which come with it too), it’s a great all-in-one way to display your tastefully chosen cheeses, especially now that it’s back down to $1 more than its lowest sale price.
