If you don't yet own an air fryer, consider yourself lucky: You can now take advantage of the craaazy sale Amazon is having on Dash's 1.2-Liter Air Fryer. Right now, the Amazon Best-Seller is marked down as much as 60 percent, which means you can order one right this second for just $40. It's usually $100, people!!
The appliance is most marked down in this pretty aqua color, but if you're more into neutrals, you can order it in black, white, or grey for just a few dollars more.
In case you're unfamiliar with air fryers, they "fry" anything you want&mdashmeat, chicken, seafood, veggies, fruits&mdashusing 70 to 80 percent less oil, so you can enjoy the crispy taste of fried food in a healthier way. And you'll be enjoying it from the comfort of your own home, more importantly. This particular model is good for one or two people and can fit a pound of french fries or a dozen chicken wings at once. Plus, it won't take up too much space it measures 10.2 x 8.1 x 11.4 inches.
Dash's Air Fryer has hundreds of five-star reviews on Amazon, including one that says their food comes out perfectly fried every time and another calling the machine "such a good purchasing decision."
The sale isn't a Deal of the Day, so we're not positive how long it will be live for, so make moves if you're interested!

Nest Audio is Google’s newest smart speaker and stands at about seven inches. We love it because it offers big sound in a small package and is made of 70 percent recycled materials. Plus, it comes in five colors and will look fabulous wherever you decide to place it. OK, Google, give me $20 off. See? It’s just that simple.

Early Prime Day deals available now
Amazon just unveiled a wealth of early-access deals, including an Echo Dot for $30, a Fire TV Stick for $20, a certified refurbished Echo (second-gen) for $60 and the Amazon Cloud Cam for $60 (a full 50 percent off). Check 'em out:
Just as Black Friday deals often start appearing well before Black Friday, Prime Day deals have already surfaced. As of Monday, July 16, here's what you can get:
The Echo Show for $130. That's a full $100 off the regular price and the biggest discount to date for Amazon's screen-equipped smart-home companion. The certified refurbished version is also available for $20 less. Read CNET's Amazon Echo Show review .
Free PC games from Twitch. Amazon already gives Prime subscribers free games every month . In the run-up to Prime Day and for a couple days after, it's giving away a different game every day. Many of the previous ones are still available -- but they won't be much longer, so hurry up. Today's entry: The puzzle-adventure game Hue.
Three months of Kindle Unlimited for $1. Normally $10 a month, Kindle Unlimited lets you read all the books you want, though from a relatively modest library of about 1 million titles. Take note, too, that this is for new subscribers only, and after the first three months, you'll automatically get billed at the standard rate unless you cancel.
Four months of Amazon Music for $1. Another extended trial for newcomers only, Amazon Music rivals Spotify and similar services by offering unlimited access to some 40 million songs. After your first four months, you'll get billed at the standard $7.99 monthly rate unless you cancel.
$2 movie rentals. Amazon has a smattering of newer movies you can rent, via Prime Video, for $1.99 apiece. The titles include Hostiles, Downsizing and Wonder.
3 months of Audible for $4.95 per month. The standard subscription rate for Amazon's audiobook service: $14.95 per month. Right now, Prime subscribers can get the first three months for $4.95 each, a total savings of $30. Interestingly, there's nothing to indicate this is for new subscribers only, so if you've tried Audible in the past, you may be able to get this deal.
You can get discounts on other items as well. For example, some of Amazon's Everyday Essentials brands have been marked down by 30 percent. You can also save up to 25 percent on select furniture and home decor products.
Are Amazon Prime Day deals worth it?
Like Black Friday and Cyber Monday later this year, Amazon Prime Day often brings many terrific bargains on tech, home goods, smart home products, and outdoor gear.
Many of the deals we've seen match the best prices offered throughout the year. However, not all of the discounts will be worth your time. Before you buy, make sure to compare the prices with historical data with CamelCamelCamel and Amazon's competition. Of course, we'll evaluate all of the offers for you during Amazon Prime Day 2021.

Found! Adorable Red Christmas Truck & Station Wagon with Tree & Wreath
What a crazy day yesterday, can you believe that on December 2nd, 23 days before Christmas, there&rsquos no garland to be found in any of the Home Depots or Lowe&rsquos garden centers near my home! It&rsquos all sold out except for a couple of strands that were all withered looking and dry.
After visiting three stores without any luck (one Lowe&rsquos and two Home Depots) I decided to try Pike Nursery, the same place I purchased all my boxwood shrubs this past summer. I held my breath, expecting high prices. Pike had both fresh garland and wreaths and I was surprised to see the price of their wreaths was right in line with Home Depot and Lowe&rsquos. I&rsquom pretty sure they have always been a good bit higher in previous years.
I picked out a beautiful wreath, but their cedar garland was priced at around $2 a foot, more than I wanted to spend. I like to go around my front door a couple of times for a nice, full look and just going around the door once would have cost $48 since it takes around 24 feet of of garland, including draping it a bit over the center over the door.
Pike gives you points when you shop with them. I thought I had used up all my &ldquoPlay in the Dirt&rdquo club points but surprisingly, I still had $25 left. So my wreath was only around $6 after I redeemed my points. Happy girl!
I tucked my wreath into the back of my SUV and as I headed home, I got an idea. I headed to Rick&rsquos Farmers Market which is just a stone&rsquos throw from my home. There I found fresh, pine, garland for a reasonable price. They had just sold out of the last of their cedar garland, after all it&rsquos ALREADY December 2nd, ya know! (my sarcasm, not their&rsquos) That was okay, I like pine garland a lot, too.
While there, I shared the saga of my garland and wreath hunt with the owners who are really nice. I asked how it was that they still had fresh garland at this late hour of December 2nd when all the Lowe&rsquos and Home Depot stores near us are sold out. She told me it was because they make their own. She said the garland I was purchasing was just put together yesterday. Guess I know where I&rsquoll be buying my garland each year!
By the time I got home, it was too late to put up the garland, but I did get the wreath hung. Not sure I&rsquoll embellish it, some years I do, and some I don&rsquot.
The Christmas Truck!
So, after my garland and wreath adventure yesterday, I sat down at the computer to catch up on email and do a bit more holiday shopping. I liked the little red truck with the Christmas tree in back and the wreath in front (available HERE) that I used in my centerpiece for yesterday&rsquos Tablescape Thursday so much, I Googled to see if I could find one in a larger size. I&rsquom not sure why, but we all seem to have fallen in love with these old nostalgic red trucks and woody cars this year!
I found one and it was perfect, but unfortunately very much sold out. Story of my life lately! It&rsquos 18 inches long, a foot tall and has a lit tree in the back. Sooo dang cute!
Apparently it was $34.98 originally at Sam&rsquos Club, but actually went on sale for just $25.91. Whaaaat! I&rsquom not a member right now, but have been in the past. If I had seen this earlier, I probably would have rejoined just to buy this cute truck.
I decided to check eBay on a miracle chance someone had listed one there. Oh boy, yes they had and just look at that price! This is where all the good deals go, people! Ebay buyers scoop them up in the retail stores, then list them on eBay for a whole lot more. If this one sells, that will be one tidy profit.
I Googled a bit more and also found them on Amazon HERE for $110, still a bit pricey, but way better than $174 on eBay!
The rusty wheels in my brain started turning: a Sam&rsquos membership right now is $45. The truck was originally $34.98. Add those together and you get $79.98. So, $110 on Amazon wasn&rsquot looking so terrible, especially for a truck this size. A membership is totally wasted on me anyway since I don&rsquot like long lines and buying in bulk. And I rarely shop in person these days, prefer to buy online and avoid the crazy Atlanta traffic.
So, I caved. Yes, I did! If you&rsquove been looking for one of these in a bigger size, you&rsquoll find it here: Red Christmas Truck.
I noticed they&rsquove dropped the price from $110 to $104.90, but raised the shipping cost. I was surprised that the shipping was just $8.49 when I purchased mine since it weighs a good bit. I guess they realized they were pricing the shipping too low and raised it up, but then tried to make up for it by dropping the cost of the truck a bit.
They also had this cute thing. GAH! Killing me here! Green is my favorite color and this is just sooo cute! It&rsquos available here: Green Christmas Wagon.
The only thing that would have made it even more perfect was if it were a woody car! Since this green wagon is a &ldquoPrime&rdquo item and shipping is free, I went ahead and ordered it today, so I can see it and compare it to the truck. If I don&rsquot think it&rsquos worth the cost once it arrives, I can return it easily since it&rsquos an Amazon Prime item. Knowing my luck, I will love it and want to keep it, too. Ack!
Again, you&rsquoll find both the truck and wagon here: Christmas Truck and Wagon.
I&rsquom off on a Christmas Home Tour today, hope to snag some pictures to share with you! Have a wonderful weekend, dear Friends!
