Need some retail therapy to help you get you through Thursday? Our team has scoured the mega-retailer's site to put together a quick-and-dirty list of the top sales for you. So what are today's best Amazon deals? Well, you can score a popular iRobot Roomba at a $95 discount. How about a set of bestselling towels for 50% off? Maybe fan-favorite JBL earbuds for $40 off? There's a lot to explore. Let's have a closer look at these stellar Amazon bargains, shall we?

These plush bath towels are made with 100% Turkish cotton.
$47 at Amazon

Haven't refreshed your bath towels in a while? Not only are these over 50% off, but they also have 32,000 five-star reviewers raving about how soft and absorbent they are.

"I seldom review my purchases, but I have to say I’m impressed with these towels," shared a happy shopper. "They are thick and soft, the size is plenty big enough. I guess I’ve gotten used to new towels shedding so much on the first wash that my dryer vent gets clogged. I feel like I lost half the towel. These did not do that. I took a picture of the fuzz that came off after the 1st wash. I feel like these are quality towels. I’ll probably get some more."

This adjustable pillow is packed with shredded memory foam and comes with an extra bag of fill, so you can create the perfect height for you.

Finding that just-right pillow is tough: Some are too high; others are too low. The popular DreamyBlue memory foam pillow lets you call the shots. It's packed with comfy shredded memory foam that you can add or subtract to find the level of coziness that works best. The cover is made with cooling bamboo and is washable in case of spills. The pillow even has a lifetime guarantee. "Best pillow I've ever owned," said a satisfied shopper "...No matter what your sleep preference is, you can customize it however you want by adding or taking out the foam!"

This handy robot vacuum, a No. 1 bestseller, has a multi-surface brush to grab everything from dirt to larger debris, leaving clean floors in its wake.
$159 at Amazon

The iRobot Roomba 694 is extra slim at 3.54 inches and quieter than your normal vacuum. It gets all those hard-to-reach spots under couches and dressers without you moving around all your furniture. It also has laser sensors to help it avoid getting stuck on carpets, bumping into walls or falling down stairs.

"This thing is LEGIIIIIT!!" shared a shopper. "We named him Bob. I had my doubts. I am a true Roomba believer now after seeing my little Bob dominate the dirt and hair. Holy smokes, the amount of junk Bob picked up! We vac and sweep all the time and it was as if I had never cleaned my house in years. Bob is amazing at picking up hair. We have a lot of hair from my wife and a dog that sheds. It’s been like that daily since we bought this thing."

Enjoy crisp vocals and balanced bass while you use Alexa to crank up the tunes, play the news, set reminders and give the final word in an argument.
$60 at Amazon

The Echo Dot is a small but mighty speaker that can stream tunes from Amazon Music, Spotify, Apple Music, Sirius XM and more. Alexa is included, of course, and you can always ask her for the latest news, weather and sports updates. "I’m addicted to Alexa folks," shared a happy shopper. "I have an Echo Dot in every room. No more yelling through the house. I always have access to information. I have smart bulbs synced as well. She knows my voice and can hear me if I’m far away. I play music all over the house from my phone and these premium speakers have great base for their size. Makes a great gift!"

Pair these with your phone or laptop for premium sound and up to 25 hours of listening time.
$100 at Amazon

Want earbuds with balanced sound and plenty of base but don't feel like coughing up $250 for Airpods? These JBLs will suit you. Not only do these 'buds provide premium audio, but they last about five hours plus 20 more with the charging case. And you can opt to wear just one of these buds to make calls or listen to music. That's a useful feature when you need to take a call on your landline or be aware of noises in your surroundings.

“I love these earbuds,” says one five-star reviewer. “I’ve tried at least 20 different brands and styles, and these are good for the following reasons. 1) They are very comfortable. It sounds like it’s a silly reason to rate earbuds but if you have them in your ears all day it’s important. 2) They sound great for the price, [with] decent bass, good separation and loud enough. 3) They connect well and don’t drop out. 4) They have a very long battery life. 5) They are built really well.”

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.)
