Join Hafta-Ichi to find out the article “The Best Deals We’ve Found That Come With a Freebie”
Sometimes, it feels next to impossible to decline something that’s being handed to you for free. My closet is proof—I can’t even begin to count the number of free T-shirts I collected from promotional events held on my college campus (that I didn’t even attend).
If you’re unable to pass up a freebie, you’re probably also a fan of a good deal. And though Cyber Monday may be over, many good discounts are still lingering—and quite a few of these deals come bundled with a free gift to help sweeten the pot. Although you shouldn’t buy something just because it comes with extras, if these discounted Wirecutter-approved picks are already on your list, it can feel like you’ve hit the jackpot.
An affordable robot vacuum
Eufy RoboVac 11S Max + Eufy Lumos Smart Bulb Tunable White
Street price: $270. Deal price: $170 with clipped on-page coupon and coupon code EUFYBULBE.
If you’d rather have someone else do your vacuuming but don’t want to pay for a monthly cleaning service, you’ve probably had your eye on a robot vacuum for some time. And if you didn’t take the plunge on Cyber Monday, the Eufy RoboVac 11S Max, a variant of our budget pick, is still on sale—and now it comes with the Eufy Lumos Smart Bulb Tunable White for no added cost, making the deal that much more attractive. Though these bulbs aren’t a Wirecutter pick, this is still a great opportunity to save considering the RoboVac’s street price of $240 (for a combined value of $270)—especially if you’re also on the lookout for smart lighting. (Note: You have to add both items to your Amazon cart to get the deal price.)

A highly coveted hair styler
Dyson Airwrap + $50 Amazon.com gift card
Street price: $600. Deal price: $550.
Though the Dyson Airwrap costs nearly 10 times as much as similar tools—and produces similar results—it offers a mind-blowingly better user experience. The Airwrap, a six-piece kit with interchangeable attachments, is a complete blowout and curling system. If it’s been at the top of your wish list but you’ve been hesitant to buy, now is a good time to consider pulling the trigger: The free $50 Amazon.com gift card, as good as cash for many, makes this a particularly good deal on what one tester referred to as “the hair-tool equivalent of freshly baked cookies.”

Unlimited seltzer water
SodaStream Fizzi OneTouch Bundle
Street price: $160. Deal price: $120.
For the LaCroix enthusiasts out there, investing in a soda maker pays for itself over time. Though the price has risen $10 since Cyber Monday, this is still a great chance to save on the SodaStream Fizzi OneTouch, our top pick. For $120, the soda maker comes bundled with two 60 L CO2 cylinders, three 1 L BPA-free reusable carbonating bottles, and two 40 mL SodaStream Fruit Drops (in lime and raspberry flavors). The second free 60 L CO2 cartridge (a $30 value) alone makes this a great deal, even without the other freebies tossed in.

An excellent price for a great mic
Yeti by Blue (cool gray) + Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (PC)
Street price: $105. Deal price: $75.
Most serious gamers have already purchased and finished Assassin’s Creed Odyssey—even so, this bundle makes the Yeti by Blue, our top USB microphone pick, considerably cheaper than it would be on its own. The Yeti is an easy-to-set-up mic that makes your voice sound good on a podcast, video call, livestream, and informal voiceover. This bundle ranks among the best values we’ve ever seen—and you can regift Assassin’s Creed to a gamer who hasn’t picked it up yet, or donate it to your favorite charity or local thrift store.

A great smart display for Alexa users
Echo Show 5 + Wyze Indoor Smart Camera
Street price: $90. Deal price: $60.
If you’ve been searching for a smart display to replace the ancient alarm clock on your nightstand, the Echo Show 5 is a good choice. It does everything the larger Echo Show can do, but with a smaller screen. Its screen brightness automatically adjusts to the room’s lighting, so it won’t keep you up at night. We’ve seen the Echo Show 5 selling in the $50 to $60 range recently, so with this deal, you essentially get a Wyze Indoor Smart Camera, our upcoming budget pick for indoor security cameras, for free.
