6 Holiday Shopping Deals That Seem Too Good To Be True (But Are 100% Legit)

You didn’t wear out your credit card limit button during Black Friday and Cyber Week, did you? That’d be a real shame, because we did some browsing and found some brand-new, utterly incomprehensible deals at Walmart and on Amazon. And we’re not talking little stocking stuffers, either. Big brands like Ecovacs, Roomba, GE, and DeWalt have stepped up their sale game in ways that seem too good to be true. (We checked — they’re real!)

Premium self-emptying robot vacuums for $300 and under, top-rated rugs for over 80% off, and more than half off smart bulbs and switches and power tools and accessories make these deals feel like Cyber Week II. We’re not sure where they came from, and we’re even less sure how long they’ll last. Better safe than sorry — go check them out now!

$299.00 $649.99 54% off


This kind of deal on a SPY-tested (and greatly approved) self-emptying vacuum is a post-Cyber Week shocker. Ecovacs aren’t just “best budget” or “best Roomba alternative” robot vacuums. They’re among the very best on the market, period. The Deebot N8+ has laser navigation and room mapping and auto-emptying, and it also acts as a mop. $300, Walmart? That’s nuts. Hammer that BUY button while you can.

$288.00 $529.99 46% off


Can’t talk you out of the Roomba club? You’re still in luck — Walmart is also offering a staggeringly good deal on the Roomba i1+ self-emptying robot vac. We virtually never see smart self-emptying Roombas for under $300, and this bot is a true warrior when it comes to pet hair thanks to its multi-surface rubber brushes which seem impervious to being tangled by hairballs. The only thing missing from this bad boy? No room-mapping tech.

We’re big fans of the Google Nest smart home system. We’ve consistently named the Google Nest cameras the top security cameras, and the Google Nest Hub smart display was a big winner in the SPY Smart Home Awards 2022. Now, that hub is at its lowest price ever (lower than Black Friday), and it comes with a free smart bulb from Wyze.

It’s not too late to lay down a great new rug for everyone to sit on while they open their presents. A huge selection of Amazon’s best rugs from brands like Safavieh, nuLOOM, and more are now rocking massive cutbacks in price, all the way up to 83% off the gorgeous 4.5-star-rated rug pictured here, which is now marked down from $640 to a crazy-low $106.16.

Premium electric toothbrushes typically cost $75-$150, but this Aquasonic toothbrush is currently priced at just $25. Better yet, it comes with eight replacement brush heads and a convenient travel case.

We told you about this one the other day, and it’s somehow still going strong on Amazon. And if you hit the deal once already for some of DeWalt’s awesome 20V cordless power tools, swing back for 48% off a set of two 20V MAX battery packs to keep the juice flowing all day long.
