Not only did we scour this sale to find some of the best deals found within, we checked out the site’s everyday savings, too, in order to curate a list of the best five deals Amazon has to offer today. From a top-rated space heater to the best reusable sandwich bags we’ve ever used, there truly are great savings to be had on anything you’re needing or wanting. See for yourself below!
1. A 41% savings: This highly-rated electric throw for cozy nights in
Electric throws are one of the best ways to stave off a chill on a cold night without jacking up your heating bill, making them both cozy and cost-effective. This Beautyrest microlight plush electric blanket is currently 41% off in gray as part of Amazon’s Big Fall Sale, and that’s not the only good news: This cushy fleece throw is made super long (it measures 50-inches by 62-inches) to stretch out over even the tallest of folks. There’s even a foot wrap to keep tootsies nice and toasty! With three heat levels for the ultimate in customization and a pre-heating feature, this pick offers exactly what we’ve come to expect from the brand after naming its big sibling, the microlight-to-berber reversible heated blanket (from $76.99), which covers the entire bed, among the best electric blankets on the market.

2. A 4% discount: These twinkly curtain string lights with more than 25K reviews
Whether you’re thinking ahead to holiday decorating or simply want to add some sparkle to your space, these curtain string lights are perfect for any occasion. Boasting 300 connected, warm white LED bulbs, this set works for indoor or outdoor use and features eight different settings, so you can customize your lighting design on a whim. With more than 25,000 stellar reviews on Amazon to boot, we wouldn’t blame you for seeing stars over these gorgeous string lights.

3. 45% off: A compact portable space heater
The portable Lasko 5409 ceramic space heater that’s on sale for $23.11 (down from $41.99) as part of the site’s Big Fall Sale is similar to the Lasko 754200 model (also on sale for $26.57) that we dubbed the best-valued space heater on the market. The main difference? The size! The 5409 seen here is slightly larger, measuring 11.63-inches tall over the 754200’s 9.2-inch height. In testing, we found the latter to be relatively powerful; if highly directional, meaning it heats just where you aim it. Both feature an adjustable thermostat and this Amazon sale model has an added handle for portability, so you can easily bring it from your kitchen counter to your office. In addition, you’ll get 1500 watts of warmth with three whisper-quiet settings. With a thumbs-up from more than 1,500 Amazon shoppers to boot, it’s a win-win all the way around.

Whether you’re upgrading an entire room or simply want to add a bit of flair to your current décor, this Rivet Sheena tufted velvet chair will fit the bill. This super plush accent chair features a cushioned seat and a wide, shell-shaped tufted back, plus metal legs with a gold finish that make it look rich and elegant despite its wallet-friendly price tag. Regularly $176.72, it’s currently $150.28 in teal as part of the Big Fall Sale. Buyers, who gave it a collective 4.5-star rating, also noted that it’s easy to assemble and feels sturdy.

5. Less than $10: Our favorite reusable sandwich bags
Now that back-to-school season is officially in full swing, those brown paper lunch bags might not be cutting it. Luckily, this Lunchskins reusable two-piece food storage bag set, which was our favorite in our round-up of the best reusable sandwich bags, is currently on sale for up to 23%. While we loved the kitschy patterns, we were more impressed by the fact that these Lunchskins were the only sandwich bags to offer temperature protection. The fact that they’re also dishwasher-safe and quick-drying was merely the cherry on top. Right now, you can pick them up from $8.50 in a selection of patterns or in a Green Tree design for $6.77.
