This Sony X80J 65-inch 4K Ultra HD LED Smart Google TV is the latest from a manufacturer that's long been at the forefront of the home video industry. No shocker, then, that the display on this set is dazzlingly vivid and detailed. Originally $1,000, this beauty is still available for only $898!
Sony’s state-of-the-art Processor X1 is the secret behind its true-to-life visuals, while HDR (High Dynamic Range) settings make sure colors stay bright and black levels are, well, black. Get ready: It’s going to feel like you’re sitting in the middle of all the action.
This 4K set includes Google TV with instant access to hundreds of popular streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, HBO Max, Paramount+, Peacock and much, much more.

Best headphone and earbud sales
Do you prefer your personal audio on-ear rather than in-ear? Well, you're in luck: The granddaddy of AirPods are on sale! That's right! The sleek Apple AirPods Max are on sale for $478, a cool $71 off, at Amazon. This is the first time they've been discounted since being released at the end of last year.
No, they're not cheap, but if crisp, clean, powerful sound is important to you, then cheap is not what you want. "If you reside in the Apple universe, these headphones are absolutely worth it," raved a savvy Amazon shopper. "The sound is fantastic across all genres of music. They project a wide soundstage and just the right amount of bass. I can listen to these for hours with great comfort and without my ears becoming sweaty."

On sale for $175 with on-page coupon (down from $250), this TCL 10L Smartphone is designed for speed and zippiness with Android built-in and 6GB of memory paired with 64GB of on-board storage. It’s also expandable up to a whopping 256GB via microSD card. Now that’s something that even the Apple iPhone can’t do. Meanwhile, its battery will stay on duty for 48 hours on a charge, and its big edge-to-edge 6.53-inch HD display means images and photos will look slick and sharp.
And shoppers love it compared to other wallet-friendly smartphone brands. "Absolute best in value if you are in the U.S. and can't use most Xiaomi phones," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "This phone has an absolute amazing build quality for its cost...it's leagues better than any other budget Android. Xiaomi may come out ahead in some areas, but the TCL is much more compatible with U.S. markets, while Xiaomi is mostly unusable."
This is an unlocked phone, so you can take it to just about any U.S. phone carrier, including T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T. The TCL 10L Android Smartphone comes in Mariana Blue and Arctic White. The choice is yours...you know, till they sell out!

"This extender works great," wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. "I recently redecorated my bedroom and moved our bed, which made the distance the furthest in the house from my router. I was seeing one bar on my iPad. I located the extender five feet from my bed and boom, I had full bars!"

“I wasn't quite sure what to expect.... But this is great! I went from having piles of pet hair on the floor to none at all,” wrote a five-star fan. “It is mind-blowing how Eufy finds all of this pet hair and dust.

Best health and wellness sales
No need to head to the gym to break a sweat — in fact, you don't even have to get off the couch. This mini peddler fits under a desk or next to your favorite lounging spot so that you can get a workout in while doing the things you already do, like working, watching TV or just hanging out. It's super quiet, has multiple resistances, and even tracks how many calories you burn, strides you take, and miles you traveled. Genius!
"I’m down 30 pounds in seven months and feeling GREAT!" a shopper declared. "This helped me build stamina and lose weight after a four-year illness. I couldn’t do very hard exercises, so I got two of these — one for work and one for home. I average 50 miles a day and when I’m home watching TV or working I make sure I’m using it. I have convinced multiple coworkers to buy these, and now our corporate gym is selling them on campus. This is absolutely SILENT and it will literally be a deal breaker on accepting any future jobs if I can’t have this at my desk. I can’t believe the difference in how I feel."

If you're a pet parent, you know how important it is to ensure that your pups are eating right. While most puppy snacks are loaded with preservatives, dyes and all sorts of nasties, these bites, from Amazon in-house brand Wag, are made (in the USA) with chicken as the very first ingredient.
"My dog is in love with these," a shopper declared. "Normally she shares her treats when her dog friends come over, but not these. If I give them to her friends, she takes them away from them and gobbles them up!"
