"This grill is a great size to carry with us in our small motor home," this noshing nomad wrote. "Compact, lightweight, easy to set up and use without being bulky. It does exactly what we want and need it to do. Cleanup after each use is a breeze. Would buy again if we needed another.

Want wireless earbuds without the hefty price tag? These true wireless earbuds look nearly identical to Apple AirPods — and they're much, much, much cheaper. And that was before the 40% discount on offer right now. These Bluetooth buds sync up with your phone, so you can play your music and hold conversations hands-free. They also offer up to 40 hours of playtime. Once you're ready to recharge them, simply place the buds in their charging case — it's that simple!

"These earbuds are honestly amazing!" said a five-star fan. "They are unbelievably comfortable. You just head in the direction of your ear and it’s like they’re on autopilot, they just 'plop' on your ear, in the bowl part at the bottom of the ear. They don’t move, fall out, twist or turn. I’ve slept in them every night, and when I wake up they’re still where I put them. ...Sound is great, bass is great."

"Awesome television experience!!!" shared one happy TV watcher. "The TV has amazing picture quality. The sound is surprisingly good as well. If you use Alexa, you can’t go wrong with this television."
