Congrats: You finally made it to the weekend! What's the plan — you know, after you run errands, mow the lawn and organize the linen closet? We know what you're're shopping! Amazon just slashed the prices on everything from air fryers and Apple watches to smartphones and suckers (of the vac variety). You'd think it was Black Friday over there!

So make sure to take some time to peruse the sales. No need to check out multiple spots: Amazon is the place to score the best deals, all weekend long. We rounded up the standouts across the board — all you have to do is scroll. 

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? Let's fix that; you can sign up for a free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Ready, set, shop!

Listen up, Android users: You can get your very own wireless earbuds that work just as well — or even better — than "Team Apple's" ubiquitous AirPods for just $100. Samsung Galaxy Buds Live are now $70 off at Amazon. That’s a 41 percent savings on these very popular earbuds that have earned a flawless rating from more than 28,000 reviewers.

Samsung Galaxy Buds offer crisp sound, punchy bass and noise cancellation for up to 29 hours per charge. Phone calls will sound crystal clear thanks to three microphones (two outer and one inner) that reduce ambient background noise, even if you’re in a busy location.

"The sound quality when listening to music paired with the ambient sound mode options is excellent," said a delighted five-star reviewer.

They're also water- and sweat-resistant. The $100 offer is for Mystic Bronze, but you can save on other colorways, too.

Behold, the 21st century way to keep an eye on your home: the Blink Outdoor Cam detects motion and begins recording as soon as it senses activity. Blink app–operated, it allows you to watch what's happening right on your phone. Equipped with night vision, the Blink Outdoor Cam — powered with two long-lasting AA lithium batteries (included) — is sharp even in the dark.

"The clarity of the video and audio are excellent, and the cameras capture everything," shared a now-safe-and-secure Amazon shopper. "Detection is almost instantaneous.... I am so impressed by the cameras that I ordered two more to augment the cameras I have already installed. Setup and installation was a breeze...Video capture in daylight is high-definition, and the night vision is extremely clear..."

It saves video and audio via microSD card, so you don’t have to worry about losing it. And the two-way talk function — with a built-in microphone — lets you confront intruders or unwanted guests from afar.

In this madcap crossover, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Yoshi join forces with four friendly Rabbids (from the hit gaming franchise Raving Rabbids) in a wacky adventure to save the Mushroom Kingdom when a group of not-so-friendly Rabbids invade.

The award-winning role-playing game Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for Nintendo Switch — for players ages 10 and up — is a wild co-op game full of strategy and puzzles with new weapons and attacks. It's fun for newly minted Mario fans as well as long-time devotees.

"This game came far out of left field," raved a delighted gamer. "Nevertheless, it's executed flawlessly. No RNG frustrations, no save scumming necessary. Lots of little nods to various Mario lore and history. Challenging scenarios, solid skill progression where I never felt over- nor under-powered, and great artwork.... My three-year-old was riveted with every battle..."

Right now, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is on sale for just $27 — that's 55 percent off — at Amazon.

With eight lighting scenes and millions of dimmable colors to choose from, you can really get creative. The scratch and fade-resistant 120-volt floodlights are waterproof too, so it holds up to the elements. 

"These lights were really easy to set up and use with our Amazon Alexa at home," says a fan. "I enjoy being able to change the color of the lights out front on a whim. They put out a good amount of light, too."

Now, this is the kind of manual labor even we can look forward to. This hand car-vac from the folks at ThisWorx includes three different attachments, including a brush nozzle that'll dislodge pet hair and those stubborn, stuck-on spills. And this is so satisfying: Because the trash container is clear, you can watch all that debris going into the machine. Ahh. Know what else feels good? Getting one of these for nearly $30 off its original price. Talk about cleaning up!

Reviewers are loving the convenience of this overachieving sucker. "A powerhouse in a little package," raved one five-star reviewer. "This is a great little vacuum to clean the car. I bought the corded unit.... The product is excellent at getting ground-in dirt out of the car's carpets, and with the hose that comes with the unit it's easy to get into tight places.... One of the best things along with its great cleaning ability is the bag that came with the unit. It makes it easy to store along with all of its attachments. So mine rides around in the car and can be used anytime because it plugs right into the power plug (lighter)."

Just think of all the yummy treats you can make. (Photo: Amazon)
And you thought fried food couldn't get any better. (Photo: Amazon)

If you love wings, cauliflower bites and all things fried, this tool is the best way to enjoy them without that terrible guilty feeling afterward. The Instant Vortex fits up to four quarts of fries, drumsticks, veggies and more. It then circulates super-hot air, which leaves your treats crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside. It's practically fool-proof, too: The gadget has an array of presets on its display, plus you can regulate the temperature from 95 degrees to 400. It uses little to no oil, so it's better for your health than traditional frying methods and the cleanup is a cinch.

"I HATE cooking and I can honestly say this air fryer has changed my life!" shared a skeptic. "There isn’t anything you can’t cook in this thing and everything comes out amazing!"

This kit offers everything you need to get a sparkling smile. It comes with 20 pairs of professional-grade strips, plus two one-hour express treatments for a quick boost. No messing around with loose gels or mouth trays.

The effects last for over 12 months, and the strips remove up to 14 years' worth of stains.  

"Highly recommended!" one shopper noted. "I am stunned by the results of this product!! I really wanted to whiten my teeth, but professional treatments are so expensive. I decided to go ahead and give this a try. I used it exactly as directed every day for the full 20 days, and my husband kept telling me how white my teeth were getting. It's hard to tell when you look in the mirror every day, but I knew there was an improvement. Then, I looked at the before and after photos and I was amazed."

With more than 5,000 five-star reviews, the Exlura high-waisted swing skirt is causing quite a stir. This shopper, who titles her review “Perfect skirt,” offers an enthusiastic overview: “This skirt is well made, comfortable, and stylish! I want it in every color!… If you have curves, it flatters them. If you don’t, it creates an hourglass. Love it! And the length is perfect!...”

In 10 unexpected options, including a mustard-yellow polka-dot that screams fall (above), this beyond-basic basic means business — or pleasure. Depending on the print and footwear, you'll wear it to work, on the weekends, or a night out. Our favorite thing about it? The wide elastic waist. So…as gentle on the body (and the ego) as sweatpants, but pretty enough to say, “I’m back, baby!”

After a long day of watching TV, listening to your Beats, tracking your fitness, video gaming, securing your home, vacuuming your car, rustling up a pot of chili, brightening your smile, and hitting the town in your new leggings, you're gonna need a good night's sleep! These pillows are made from 100 percent cotton and gel-filled fiber, making them incredibly soft to touch but firm enough to provide that all-important support. Move around at night? Their no-shift construction minimizes bunches and distortion. The combo of cooling gel and breathable cotton is great for regulating your temperature in winter, spring, summer and fall.

They're also allergen- and chemical-free and won't fade or stain over time. If you want to freshen them up, just toss them in the wash; they'll come out clean and holding their shape. That's right — they're machine-washable!

"I ordered two king and two queen pillows [for] me, my wife and my teenage son," shared one five-star reviewer. "We all absolutely love these pillows; my neck pain is gone and I sleep much better now. These pillows maintain their shape 100 percent ( we have had them for 6 months). ... Comfort is important at this stage in our lives and these pillows provide it!"
