When was the last time you treated yourself to something new? Whether it be something small, like a spring-friendly top for your closet, or a large self-present, like a new TV, there's no better excuse to spoil yourself than getting through the week—not to mention the endless winter—and spicing up your weekend. 'Cmon, you deserve it!

Whether you're aiming for an "atta boy" or "OMG!"-level treat, Amazon's weekend sale will have you saving big. A new entertainment system? A new gadget for your kitchen? Something for Fido? You can pick 'em all up while saving a few (sometimes way more than a few) bucks. Of course, the best deals are sure to go fast, so strike fast, or risk losing out.

And, of course, if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping. Not yet a member? Be their guest—you can sign up for a free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

We're putting the most tempting deal of the weekend right up top. Want a new TV for your bedroom or kitchen? Amazon has this Insignia 24-inch Smart HD TV—Fire TV Edition on sale for just $100! The standout set delivers vivid and vibrant colors and impressive picture quality—both of which are tres rare in this price range. The audio, too, is crystal clear—and the remote gives you access to Alexa, too. So if you’re not a fan of mind-numbing scrolling through a grid of movie and TV shows titles (who is?), you can simply say, "Alexa, play Borat Subsequent Moviefilm," and she’ll grant your wish on the spot.

"I am honestly very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV," reported a satisfied Amazon shopper. "As far as clarity goes, I believe HD720p is plenty for this screen size." Speaking of making things clear: You are not going to find a better TV deal anytime soon.

On sale for 40 percent off, the Beats Solo3 headphones sync to just about any smartphone or laptop via Bluetooth, plus they soak up nearly 40 hours of battery life on a single charge. This means you can get a solid stream of music and podcasts for nearly two days without being tethered to your device. Amazing, considering that most wireless headphones tap out after about 30 hours.

"The Beats Solo3 is absolutely the best headset I've ever owned," raved a delighted five-star shopper. "I've had many headsets over the years to do my job. Now that I'm changing careers and moving into online teaching I need a headset that is of very high-quality sound with the ability to send and receive calls and to be wireless.... Beats Solo3 fits the bill. [They're] exceptionally comfortable to wear for many hours at a time. The battery life is phenomenal."

Are you an Apple-phile looking to add another component to your work-play regimen? Well, guess what? Amazon's just slashed $30 off the latest iPad (in Space Gray), now just $299.

With up to 10 hours of battery life, this newest iPad iteration (32GB/Wi-Fi model) has the same impressive 10.2-inch display, quick Touch ID fingerprint sensor and 3GB of memory as the last version, but it features a speedier processor. You’ll notice—and appreciate—that when you're watching videos, surfing web sites, or gaming, um, games.

"I love it! It’s fast and easy to use plus it’s super affordable compared to the other models," wrote a thrilled Amazon shopper. "The display is beautiful and picture quality is great...It’s working great, the multitasking is amazing and it’s like I have a mini laptop everywhere I go. Perfect for students, the screen quality is amazing and the battery lasts all day long."

It’s back in stock on April 22, but you can pre-order now to lock in this price. (Think of it as getting a head start on spending that tax refund!) Amazon will then send you a notification, once it's ready to ship.

In this madcap crossover, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Yoshi join forces with four friendly Rabbids (from the hit gaming franchise Raving Rabbids) in a wacky and fun adventure to save all of the Mushroom Kingdom from chaos and danger when a group of not-so-friendly Rabbids invade and try to conquer.

The award-winning role-playing game Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for Nintendo Switch—for players ages 10 and up—finds Nintendo and game publisher Ubisoft joining forces to deliver a wild co-op game that’s full of strategy and puzzles with new weapons and attacks that are fun for new and old Mario fans alike.

"This game came far out of left field," raved a delighted gamer. "Nevertheless, it's executed flawlessly. No RNG frustrations, no save scumming necessary. Lots of little nods to various Mario lore and history. Challenging scenarios, solid skill progression where I never felt over- nor under-powered, and great artwork.... My three-year-old was riveted with every battle..."

Right now, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is on sale for just $30, or half off, at Amazon.

You can score this Teckin Wi-Fi Smart Plug (four-pack) for $25, or $21 off with on-page coupon at Amazon. That’s a sweet 46 percent discount—and breaks down to just $6.25 per plug.

What's are smart plugs? Glad you asked, cuz they're gonna change your life. Here’s how: You plug one of these babies into a wall outlet, then plug in anything from a lamp or a TV to a coffeemaker. Now, here comes the magic: Connect the Teckin to your Wi-Fi network and use your phone to sync to the Teckin Smart app (it works with Android phones and Apple iPhones too). Voila—you now can control just about anything in your home with your phone. Shoppers also love their shape.

"These oblong style plugs are perfect," raved a delighted shopper. "I’ve been using the older round Teckin plugs for a few years now and they work great. But two of that old style don't fit side by side in a standard wall outlet. With this new shape they are wider and shorter, so two plugs do fit in a single outlet. Now you can control two separate devices from one outlet without extra cords. Perfect!"

It's finally warm enough to rock bare legs, and make sure the first time you do so, it's in this versatile frock.

I love the cap sleeves, too."

If the past year has taught us anything, it's that you can never have too much hand sanitizer. This pack of four has over 30,000 five-star reviews, which comes as no surprise considering its powerful (yet moisturizing!) formula. Germs? Bye-bye. Plus, the smell isn't as strong as other sanitizers, and these are a great size for refilling smaller bottles. And, at a total of 128 ounces, this quartet will keep your home or office cootie-free for months.

"They are definitely worth the price," one Germ-X user shared. "My sister has severe allergies and all the other hand sanitizers I've bought have really strong chemical smells and she can't stand them. These have a really pleasant smell to them and are the only ones she can tolerate. I will definitely be buying more soon."
