This time of year has a happy, if crazy, pace to it. Holiday energy is in the air — and suddenly you realize you're too busy to keep up with your to-do list, much less your to-buy list. We want to help. All you need is a two-minute break to cruise through the savings we've unearthed. Today's best Amazon deals include a popular Fitbit Charge 5 at $50 off. How about fan-favorite JBL Tune headphones for $30? Maybe a bestselling Bowflex adjustable dumbbell, reduced by $100? There's a lot to explore. Let's have a closer look at these stellar Amazon bargains, shall we?

This bestselling robovac is extra slim, so it can easily glide under your couch and dressers. It also has laser sensors to avoid getting stuck on carpets, bumping into walls or the dreaded falling down stairs.

The iRobot Roomba 694 is the bestselling robot vacuum on Amazon — and it's $95 off! It has so much going for it, including a height under four inches, which lets it get into places where dust bunnies like to congregate. You can even set a schedule for your robovac to clean when you’re not around, or just ask Alexa or Google to do it. The vacuum will return to its dock to charge as needed and get back to finish the job once it's powered up.

"This thing is LEGIIIIIT!!" said a five-star fan. "We named him Bob. I had my doubts. I am a true Roomba believer now after seeing my little Bob dominate the dirt and hair. Holy smokes the amount of junk Bob picked up! We vac and sweep all the time and it was as if I had never cleaned my house in years. Bob is amazing at picking up hair. We have a lot of hair from my wife and a dog that sheds. It’s been like that daily since we bought this thing."

"The flavor of any pod I've used thus far has been AMAZING!" raved a five-star fan. "Even the hot chocolate for my son is great and I haven't even tried the strong setting yet. ... Oh and you can remove the drip tray to fit in travel mugs!!! Great, right?"

These headphones are bestsellers, offering up to 40 hours of play time (you can recharge in just two hours). Bluetooth 5 technology lets you stay connected. You can even take calls from these comfy cans.

“These are very good headphones, and I don't just mean based on the price,” said a happy customer. “These are all-around great headphones! I had Beats for four years that just fell apart. Searched on a budget and decided on these, and I don't feel like I am sacrificing. Very comfortable. Not tight on my head at all."

This adjustable weight dumbbell gives you a massive range of 5 to 52.5 pounds, allowing you to do a lot with a little. A simple toggle system makes it easy to switch up the weights during your workout.

Beef up your home gym set-up with this massively popular adjustable weight dumbbell. The weight easily adjusts in 2.5-pound increments to let you get specific. It's essentially 15 sets in one, saving you time and money. It all fits neatly into a holding tray that keeps unused weights from rolling around.

"Easy to operate right out of the box. It’s all fairly self explanatory," said a five-star fan. "There are two knobs, one on each end of the dumbbell. You turn the knobs to the desired weight setting and lift straight up on the dumbbell. That’s it. You don’t need to try to figure out any weight plate combinations in your head. You just turn the knobs on each end to the desired weight."
