When's the last time you treated yourself? If you can't remember, it's been too long. And besides: Don't you deserve a little something fun to ring in the warm weather?

Amazon is having a massive weekend-long sale on just about everything treat-yourself-worthy — we're talking markdowns on TVs, tech, fashion, beauty, even robot vacuums! Whether you're thinking of getting yourself a little spirit-raising indulgence or have resolved to make some bigger-ticket upgrades, there are plenty of options for all needs and any budget.

And oh yeah: If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping. Not yet a member? Don't go having a conniption; 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.)

Ready? Set? Let's shop!

Let's start with a big-ticket item at a small-ticket price, shall we? On sale for $260 (was $320), the Insignia 43-inch 4K TV — Fire TV Edition features vivid colors and exceptional picture quality — both of which are four-leaf-clover rare in this price range. It really stands out among its peers. The audio, too, is head-of-the-class. 

Meanwhile, this 4K model lets you stream 4K movies and TV shows from Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max, YouTube, Disney+, Prime Video, Sling TV and more without a separate streaming box or stick. And the best part? Alexa is accessible via the remote.

"...I have a Fire Stick and am familiar with the interface and this being built into the TV makes it a lot easier," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "Prime Videos that are available in 4K seem to automatically play at the highest resolution...It's great that this switches easily between streaming and the cable input. You get everything you'd want - great color, awesome clarity, sharp picture and good audio without spending too much.

The Beats Studio3 Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones, which are on sale for $199, or $150 off at Amazon, mix style and performance in one sleek design. These are Beats’ premium noise-canceling cans (that's right; we're using professional-audiophile-speak, cuz these are that good) that work seamlessly with just about any Apple device, including the iPhone, iPad and MacBook. It’s almost like magic how they sync to your Apple products, thanks to Apple’s W1 chip for instant pairing. 

And they're ideal for taking on the road. "These are the best headphones I’ve ever had," raved one happy wanderer. "I travel 99 percent of the time for work and am on planes twice a week. I am exhausted and don’t want to talk to people. These are perfect for when you are anti-social on the plane and at the airport. They’re a beautiful color too, and the battery life is awesome at 22 hours. Also, the noise canceling is amazing. Definitely worth the money!"

You might know TCL as a TV maker, but did you know the tech company also makes wallet-friendly smartphones? It's true! And this weekend, you can score the TCL 10L Android smartphone for just $175, or $75 at Amazon. This is a 30 percent savings and the all-time lowest price ever on this super-popular model. How popular? So popular that it has earned a perfect rating from more than 1,400 reviewers. Is that popular, or what?

Here's what you'll get: The TCL 10 L is equipped with 6GB of memory and 64GB of storage; it also comes with a 6.53-inch Full HD LCD display that’s super-sharp and bright. It's also upgradable to Android 10 out-of-the-box and features a Quad-rear camera system with a 48-megapixel high resolution lens, an eight-megapixel super wide-angle lens, two-megapixel macro shooter and two-megapixel depth lens with an five-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls and selfies. That's what we call photogenic! For extra security and paranoia satiation, the TCL 10L has a fingerprint sensor on its back.

"Awesome bang for your buck.... I love this phone!" shared a savvy shopper. "I was a little nervous because the price is so reasonable, but its a killer phone. I've had a TCL TV for a long while now so I was just hoping that the quality would carry over, and it seems to be the case. The fingerprint reader is quick and seems to work well when my hands are even a little damp. I use it mainly for GPS, Spotify, and YouTube...Battery life so far is great..."

Just because warmer temps mean more outdoor frolicking doesn't mean you won't be hankering for a gaming hunker-down from time to time. On sale for $20 (down from $50), BioShock: The Collection features all three games in the popular franchise: Bioshock Remastered, Bioshock 2 and Bioshock Infinite. These fun-tastic games explore futuristic science fiction worlds underwater and above the clouds.

Isn't there enough stupidity in the world? Must we tolerate it from our electrical outlets too? On sale for $15 (was $25), the Amazon Smart Plug — which can easily syncs with the Echo Dot — is a small doodad that fits between a power socket and an appliance like a coffee maker, TV or lamp and enables you to operate said device through a smartphone app or a smart-home hub. Finally!

The Amazon Smart Plug empowers you to take care of everyday drudgery like turning off the lights without getting up from the couch or brewing java from bed in the morning with almost no effort. 

"Got this smart plug so I can remotely turn appliances and lights on and off in an Alzheimer's patient's home," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "I can remotely make sure things are off by simply [using] the Amazon Alexa app — super simple to use and really helps me out. Now I don't have to drive over there to make sure the lights, AC or TV are off. Thank you!"

If you think that wall plug was clever, get a load of this brainiac: Unlike many other robot vacuums that just suck up dirt, grime, crumbs and pet hair, the Kyvol Cybovac E31 Robot Vacuum Cleaner — on sale for $199, or $100 off with on-page coupon at Amazon — can also mop up messes (with its included wet mop attachment) with up to 150 minutes of battery life per charge. We were gonna call it the jack-of-all-trades of floor cleaning, but nay, nay, it's the king!

"I absolutely love this robot vacuum," exclaimed a happy Amazon shopper. "I use to hate vacuuming and mopping the was such a chore that I just didn’t have time for. Now with this robot, I have time to do other things while it does all the work and does a great job at it!"

Movie night in the backyard? Don't mind if we do! On sale for $200 with the on-page coupon, the Vankyo Leisure HD Digital Projector is small yet mighty, with 1,500 lumens of brightness and Full HD resolution at 1080p. It can project movies up to 18 feet high on a flat surface, like a projection screen, a wall, a ceiling or even a big bed sheet. It also makes for a great computer monitor alternative. Imagine your desktop displayed this big — you can cut out the middleman and make your online dating profile as big as a billboard!

Dual speakers turn out superb audio — though you might want to connect portable speakers for a little more power when watching outdoors. We love that its cooling fan is nearly silent, and shoppers are raving about the sharp picture quality.

"Vankyo 530w is a great projector in terms of quality, operability and looks," shared a savvy Amazon shopper. "...Very easy to connect with laptop and phone (through Wi-Fi)....Overall, I would say that, in this price range, this is among the best projectors to buy."

Want to become the prince of pancakes? The sovereign of souffles? The majordomo of meringues? This small-but-mighty mixer can whisk cream, egg whites, dough, batter — wherever your culinary fancy takes you. It boasts nine speed settings, automatic calibration, whisper-quiet scraper beaters, and an ultra-comfortable design....not to mention a detachable storage compartment to make sure you don't lose the plentiful accessories and attachments.

"What was I doing all my life using any other mixer like a sucker?!!" one spiritually awakened shopper shared. "This mixer is great—the timer turns on once you start, so there's no setting a separate timer or staring at the clock, and the rubber-coated beaters are a revelation. I haven't used any of the other two attachments (whisks or a bread-kneader type of attachment) but from what I have used, I love, love, love this mixer."

"I’ve been searching for a LONG time on Amazon for the perfect leggings," one connoisseur shared. "I wanted high quality like the expensive Lululemon or P’tula without spending a lot of money.

They def pass the squat test, are not see-through at ALL, and have convenient pockets that I didn’t think I needed but love."

Let's talk about electronic hygiene. When's the last time you cleaned your phone — and we're not just talking all those apps you never use. Somewhere between "rarely" and "never," we'd guess. Well, time to get on that. This Samsung Qi Wireless Charger uses a SGS UV-C light to effectively sanitize your cell, killing over 99 percent of the nasties living on its surface. You can use it to disinfect pens, watches, keys, anything that'll fit. And at half off, it's an absolute steal.

"I have sanitized my phone, mask, keys, and remotes!" a shopper shared. "It is amazing! I highly recommend this to anyone worried about COVID-19. It gives me peace of mind."
