In 2023, Amazon gave shoppers many opportunities to upgrade their homes for less, from Prime Day to Cyber Weekend to yet another (not so) surprising Prime Day. Still, it was a busy year for many people, so we understand if you missed the boat on a lot of shopping events. Now that we’ve nearly made it through, however, you deserve to get yourself (or a loved one) something nice. And, although it might not be that obvious, there’s no better time to do some last-minute shopping than right now, when select retailers are hosting end-of-season sales. Yes, that includes Amazon, so you’ll want to head over to the site to pick up your next countertop appliance, tech gadget, or cookware set at a steep markdown.

We had a look through the deals and found some pretty great ones on top brands like KitchenAid, Bissell, Nespresso, and more. Once you stock up on these top picks, your culinary arsenal will be prepped and ready to take on yet another year.
