Eufy HomeVac Duo Stick Vacuum

Street price: $100; Deal price: $80

This is a new low price on a vacuum we like in our best stick vacuum guide. The Eufy HomeVac Duo has a pop-out hand vacuum module, thus the Duo name. Usually between $100 and $110, at $80 for the red model, this deal beats the lowest price we'd previously seen by about $5 dollars. Looking for black or white instead? Both are also discounted at $83, a few dollars below the previous low. Shipping is free with Prime.

The Eufy HomeVac Duo is our versatile and affordable pick in our guide to the best stick vacuums. Liam McCabe wrote, "If you want a budget cordless vacuum with more battery life or the ability to pull double duty as a hand vacuum, check out the Eufy HomeVac Duo (formerly known as the Anker HomeVac Duo). Like the Hoover Linx, the Eufy HomeVac Duo ca not compete with the Dyson V6 in cleaning power, but it's useful for tidying up."

Nikon Coolpix B700 Superzoom Camera

Street price: $450; Deal price: $350

If you are looking specifically for a superzoom camera, this is a very solid drop on the Nikon Coolpix B700, our top pick. Usually well over $400, at $350 this is one of the lowest prices we have seen for it new and it's roughly equivalent in price to where we usually see it sold in refurbished condition by a trusted retailer, so grab one while you can. Shipping is free.

The Nikon Coolpix B700 is our top pick in our guide to the best superzoom camera. Ben Keough wrote, "Although none of the models we tested ticked all of the boxes on our checklist, the Nikon Coolpix B700 includes the most important features you could want in a superzoom. In particular, its eye sensor makes switching between the rear screen and the electronic viewfinder a breeze, the articulating rear LCD enables easy off-angle shooting, the raw capture is a great feature for anyone who owns image-processing software, and the impressive lens zooms in to an incredible 1440mm-equivalent focal length, long enough to fill the frame with a building located a mile away. You can find some of the B700's individual attributes in other superzooms, but no competitors combine them all in a reasonably sized camera body. Ken McMahon of Camera Labs agrees, writing that "there's very little that compares with the B700 at this price point."
