Intex mattress (Photo: Walmart)
You'll sleep easier knowing you have one of these on hand...to say nothing of how easy you'll sleep actually using it! (Photo: Walmart)

Fancy a camping trip one of these days, but aren't exactly relishing sleeping one sheet of paper-thin vinyl away from the cold, hard ground? Maybe you find yourself entertaining the occasional sleepover guest but lack a separate bedroom. Well, then, the Intex 18" High Comfort Plush Raised Air Mattress Bed is for you. It inflates easily — via an internal pump or manually for alfresco use — to create a firm-yet-pillowtopped sleeping surface to rival many a "real" mattress. Come morning, it'll fold up quickly and easily for storage in its (included) carry bag.

"This air mattress is so plushly, comfortable, and simple to set up," testifies a well-rested fan. "The first time our dog jumped on it I thought it would bust, but the dog had no effect on the mattress.... You can use with or without sheets. We have slept on it for the last four nights with never waking up on the floor or adding any more air to it. It is perfect for a movie night or a overnight guest. We love it."

Roku Ultra LT (Photo: Walmart)
Rock a Roku at its best, at an unbeatable price. (Photo: Walmart)

In our experience, any Roku is a good Roku. But the Roku Ultra LT really goes above and beyond (guess the "Ultra" in its name kinda gives that away, eh?) Its secret weapon? A quad-core processor, which yields HD, 4K and HDR, which means eye-popping picture quality. It's also got a remote that will control your monitor, and comes with a pair of headphones for those nights when you want to enjoy multiplex-level volume when everyone else in the house is sleeping.

"Awesome," declared one over-the-moon user. "I have the old Roku 3 and Amazon Fire TV. The menus and navigation are way better on this new Roku LT. And I absolutely love how effective the voice search function works. If these are on sale, I plan to update another one of my TVs with one of these" Guess it's her lucky day!

"Just buy it." Hey, that's what we said! This happy shopper continued: "I love my Eufy robovac!! It vacuums my whole house, which is about 1,600 square feet. I keep my house extremely clean, so I have to empty the vacuum once a week, and it runs every morning at 8. I love the fact that you can program it around your schedule.... Also, the app lets you know everything going on with the vacuum. Whether it’s stuck, cleaning or needs to be emptied, the app will alert you." But wait, there's more! "My favorite Feature will have to be the edge cleaner, it cleans right against the corners, and wall around the whole entire house.
