January is almost over, but the exhaustion that comes with the holiday season is likely still lingering—for some of us, at least. What better way to recover from the craze than giving your home a little extra TLC? Whether that means a therapeutic deep clean or upgrading your furniture to achieve maximum comfort, there’s nothing better than a cozy space. Below, we’ve rounded up a variety of deals on everything from mattresses to robot vacuums to air purifiers.

Robot Vacuums and Air Purifier Deals
The Roomba i3+ holds the title of “Best Overall” in our Best Robot Vacuums buying guide. It packs a rubber roller (that’s easy to clean), Dirt Detect systems for difficult areas on carpet, and a self-emptying bin that cleans itself out in just 10 minutes. This price matches what we saw during Black Friday last year.
iRobot’s Roomba j7+, on the other hand, falls under “The Absolute Best” on our roundup of robot vacuums. It boasts powerful suction, excellent navigational features, and a base where the robot vacuum empties itself. This base has an enclosed bag system the dirt goes into when the vacuum is done cleaning. Just take it out when it’s full, pop it in the trash, and add a new bag (there’s a spot to store extra bags). Its connected app also lets you configure your cleaning schedule and specific preferences.
If you’re looking for a more affordable robot vacuum, the Roomba 694 is a solid option. It has good navigation skills, Dirt Detect sensors, great suction—all while staying quiet throughout the cleaning process. With support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, you can control the vacuum via voice commands or through the companion app.
Hate mopping at home? The Braava Jet m6 can do it for you. Equipped with a wet mopping pad and precision jet spray, it’s not the best for deep stains, but it can certainly tackle dirt and grime. It also has the ability to recognize carpet, so you don’t have to worry that it’ll mop anything other than tile and hardwood flooring.
Clip the coupon on the page to see the discount at checkout. This is our runner-up choice in our Best Robot Vacuums guide. It’s one of the best values around—you get mapping for better navigation, virtual barriers, and problem spot detection. It also has an amazing three hours of battery life, and a larger-than-normal dust bin, so it can operate for a longer time before you need to empty it.
While extremely beneficial, air purifiers aren’t the most aesthetically pleasing to look at. But we recommend Coway’s Airmega 150 as an attractive and effective option in our Best Air Purifiers roundup. Built for small rooms (up to 214 square feet), it comes equipped with a color-coded air monitor light, intuitive touch controls, and a light indicator that alerts you when to change the HEPA filter or change the deodorization. It also rarely goes on sale.
The Wynd Plus did dip to $150 in November, but $40 off is still a great deal. As one of the smallest air purifiers out there—it fits on both a nightstand and a cup holder in the car—the Wynd Plus is a great addition to your packing list. It’s not a HEPA filter, but it’s capable of cleaning particles greater than 0.3 microns within 3 feet (including wood smoke and auto emissions). You also get an air quality sensor, a kickstand (to prop it up), and a microfiber traveling bag.
While Leesa’s Hybrid Mattress wasn’t our absolute top pick in our Best Mattresses roundup, it did earn a place as runner-up in comfort. As a hybrid, the individually wrapped springs are wedged between five layers of foam that vary in density—complete with a top layer of cooling Avena foam. WIRED reviews director Jeffrey Van Camp praised it for the well-blended layers that give it the ability to hug your body gently while still offering the right support.

Made of natural latex and wool, the eco-friendly mattress packs individually wrapped coils that give it a bouncy and plush feel. As someone who has a tendency to toss and turn all night, WIRED reviewer Louryn Strampe says she was pleasantly surprised by how it helped her sleep. It’s worth noting, however, that it’s not as breathable as other mattresses in our buying guide, so it’s not the best pick if you tend to run hot throughout the night.
Use code StayComfy to see the discount at checkout. Keetsa’s Tea-Leaf Supreme mattress received an honorary mention in our roundup. It comes with a thin top layer made from recycled materials and three layers of foam. WIRED reviewer Matt Jancer says he wasn’t blown away by its comfort, but if you’re a side sleeper that prefers a mattress on the softer side, it’s worth looking into.
