It's time to treat yourself — and the best way to do that? A spot of shopping, of course. But with what we're about to show you, you may be inclined to splurge for a whole dollop of shopping, maybe even a generous splash.

Luckily for you, indulging in a bit of retail therapy doesn't have to come with a high price tag: In fact, you can save big this weekend at Amazon. The e-retailer has marked down a ton of tech, style finds and more, but only for this weekend. Make sure to scoop up your stuff quickly before someone else does! 

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

Ready? Set? Let's shop!

TVs

Amazon has this Insignia 32-inch Smart HD TV — Fire TV Edition on sale for just $140! The standout set delivers eye-popping colors and exceptional picture quality — both of which are as rare as Bigfoot in this price range. The audio, too, is top notch — and its remote is Alexa-capable. So if you’re not a fan of endlessly scrolling through a grid of movie titles (and who is?), you can just say, “Alexa, play Knives Out,” and she’ll make your wish come true. (Just make sure she doesn't have access to your cutlery when you say it.)

“I am honestly very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV,” reported a satisfied Amazon shopper. “As far as clarity goes, I believe HD720p is plenty.... I’m a bit of a TV snob, but the lower clarity is not noticeable in this size.”

This weekend, Mpow M9 Noise-Canceling Wireless Earbuds are on sale for just $23, or $47 off with on-page coupon and promo code MPOW0499 at checkout. That's nearly a 70 percent savings and the all-time lowest price ever! (Go ahead, check the retail history books. We'll wait.) These wireless earbuds offer rich enveloping sound, with deep soulful bass, all while shutting the cacophonous world out with superior noise-cancelation. Though you can make some noise if you want; these have four microphones and won't miss a word of your DIY karaoke or wizened opinionizing.  

But don't believe us; believe the Mpow's 12,000-plus five-star reviewers. "...The sound quality is excellent for the price point," raved one of them. "Good sounding audio is very important to me, and these have a nice punchy low end with clear highs and an adequate mid-range. The volume has a nice upper limit (higher than some of my other headphones and earphones) for those of us who want to expedite the hearing loss process with some good music. Very pleased here. I have been disappointed with lame or underperforming audio numerous times before with other products, but not with these..."

Been hankering to escape from the Apple cult? Well, your deprogramming starts here. The Motorola Moto G7 Plus — which is on sale for only $123 (down from $250) — is equipped with 4GB of memory and 64GB of storage, while this Android smartphone also comes with a 6.2-inch Full HD+ Max Vision display that’s super-sharp and bright. It's also upgradable to Android 10 out-of-the-box. And it features a 16-megapixel rear shooter with an 5-megapixel front-facing camera for video calls and selfies. For extra security and paranoia satiation, the Moto G7 Plus has a fingerprint sensor on its back.

"The phone is very good. This phone is better than you can imagine...," raved a savvy shopper. "Excellent build quality and body materials. The screen is responsive and has a good headroom. The operating system is the same as in Google pixel which is much more expensive. The phone is fast, not the speed of a flagship, but it's faster than any (budget) phone. I recommend the phone, a good buy for your family members who do not need a lot of unnecessary features and at the same time you will get a very high-quality device."

Step right up! Since most of us will likely miss out on carnivals this year, we’re bringing the carnival to you. 2K Games’ Carnival Games for Nintendo Switch — on sale for just $20, or half off at Amazon — will make you feel like you’re strolling down the midway with your pick of 20 classic carnival games to play. You can shoot basketballs, take down scary clowns, bowl, race drones and more. Plus, you can even win tickets and trade them in for prizes! Bring on the fried dough!

“Fun game — I made an in-home carnival for my boys during quarantine and set this up on the projector,” shared a delighted mother of two. “Made it feel like a real carnival. It's fun and competitive, and you can play as teams. Good price for a fun game, and it's not hard to unlock levels.”

We don't know about you, but we've had it up to here with non-sentient electrical outlets! On sale for $15 (was $25), the Amazon Smart Plug — which can easily syncs with the Echo Dot — is a small doodad that fits between a power socket and an appliance like a coffee maker, TV or lamp and enables you to operate said device through a smartphone app or a smart-home hub. Finally!

The Amazon Smart Plug empowers you to take care of everyday drudgery like turning off the lights without getting up from the couch or brewing java from bed in the morning with almost no effort.

"Got this smart plug so I can remotely turn appliances and lights on and off in an Alzheimer's patient's home," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "I can remotely make sure things are off by simply [using] the Amazon Alexa app — super simple to use and really helps me out. Now I don't have to drive over there to make sure the lights, AC or TV are off. Thank you!"

If you think that wall plug was clever, get a load of this genius: Unlike many other robot vacuums that just suck up dirt, grime, crumbs and pet hair, the Kyvol Cybovac E31 Robot Vacuum Cleaner — which is on sale for $199, or $100 off with on-page coupon at Amazon — can also mop up messes (with its included wet mop attachment) with up to 150 minutes of battery life per charge. We were gonna call it the jack-of-all-trades of floor cleaning, but nay, nay, it's the king!

"I absolutely love this robot vacuum," exclaimed a happy Amazon shopper. "I use to hate vacuuming and mopping the floors...it was such a chore that I just didn’t have time for. Now with this robot, I have time to do other things while it does all the work and does a great job at it!"

On sale for $200 with the on-page coupon, the Vankyo Leisure HD Digital Projector is small yet mighty, with 1,500 lumens of brightness and Full HD resolution at 1080p. It can project movies up to 18 feet high on a flat surface, like a projection screen, a wall, a ceiling or even a big bed sheet. It also makes for a great computer monitor alternative. Imagine your desktop displayed this big — you can make your Word document, LinkedIn page or online dating profile as big as a billboard!

Dual speakers turn out superb audio — though you might want to connect portable speakers for a little more power when watching outdoors. We love that its cooling fan is nearly silent, and shoppers are raving about the sharp picture quality.

"Vankyo 530w is a great projector in terms of quality, operability and looks," shared a savvy Amazon shopper. "...Very easy to connect with laptop and phone (through Wi-Fi)....Overall, I would say that, in this price range, this is among the best projectors to buy."

Dreaming of fries? Wings? Crispy buffalo cauliflower? Well, you might want to start dreaming a bit bigger. But we digress: The important thing is, this Ultrean air fryer can make over 4.2 quarts of your favorite fried foods, minus the fatty oils. It's super easy to use, too — just set your time and temperature, and the Ultrean gets to work circulating super-heated air around your foot, making it crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Yum.

"My first meal I prepared...[were] some pork chops. They came out great!" one shopper shared. "I love this air fryer. Absolutely mind-blowing. Setting up was a breeze. It’s also easy to operate! This is definitely a great investment."

"I have been using it for only two weeks and I am seeing a significant difference in my skin feeling smoother and softer, with a definite boost in firmness and reduction in fine lines. I have just received several comments from friends on how great my skin is looking... LOVE, LOVE this cream."

Whether you're a plain Jane, a kvetching Karen or a Becky with the good hair, you need some new leggings! These squat-proof jobs feature a flattering high rise waist (hello, tummy control!) and are cropped right at the ankle. Another bonus? They have pockets! 

One shopper attested to just how slimming these gorgeous leggings are, saying her friends thought she lost weight! "I wore these around a small outside gathering of friends recently and was complimented on my weight loss," she divulged. "I haven't lost any weight during Covid, it's purely the power of these leggings. They fit absolutely wonderfully. The material is very good and they hold in the waist and tummy area. I love that they have two convenient pockets; one for my cell and one for doggie bags. Super convenient!"

You know your hands get dirty, but here's the thing: So does your phone, and when's the last time you bothered to clean it? The handy-dandy PhoneSoap 3 uses two UV-C bulbs to effectively sanitize your cell, killing over 99.99 percent of the nasties living on its surface. You can use it to disinfect pens, watches, keys, anything that'll fit on its roughly 7" × 4" cleaning bay. Not for nothing was it featured on Shark Tank and Good Morning America.

"Honestly, I was skeptical at first, but I have a bio degree, so I get excited about things like this and had to check it out," a onetime skeptic shared. "It definitely passed the test! I highly recommend watching the test video on the PhoneSoap website — I loved seeing the lab results (completely clean petri dish compared to a filthy control) — and the science speaks for itself. Very nifty product, works great and easy to use."

Feel like you can never find a pillow that's the right combination of plush and firm? What if you could create the perfect Goldilocks solution yourself — no sewing required? This pillow allows you to adjust just how much of its shredded memory foam fill to stuff inside. It even comes with an extra bag of the stuff for a super-plush pillow, if that's your jam. Your head spends roughly one third of its life on your bed pillow; doesn't it deserve a custom-made resting place?

"Finally a forever pillow!" one shopper shared. "I have bought pillows before but these are by far the best ones. I love the concept [that] you adjust pillows to your liking. I did not add or remove the stuffing, just perfect!!"

Ah, the delicious torment of a kitty at play...now with a mechanical rodent and blinking lights! (Photo: Amazon)

As anyone who's teased their kitty from under the covers knows, if there's one thing felines love more than chasing anything that moves, it's going after unidentified things that are moving underneath something else. With that time-honored game in mind, the Smarty Cat Concealed Motion Toy keeps her maddeningly occupied with a furry toy that spins and whips around under its cover, imitating its favorite rodential prey, while also keeping Clawdia entranced with an array of blinking lights. So much swatting! So much lurching! So much rapid eye movement! Your baby will be too tuckered out to turn its attention to your precious upholstery, and you won't be stuck wielding a laser pen for hours on end. 

"I don't often give five stars, but my kitty LOVES this toy," one shopper shared. "He never seems to get bored with it. When you turn it on you can choose from two speeds. The furry 'critter' will make complete circles, half-circles, small movements then will pause and change direction from time to time as well as light up. Sometimes he attacks it, sometimes he sits and watches it. He has played with it pretty much daily since Christmas and waits rather impatiently every morning for me to turn it on for his morning playtime."
