Stop the press: 70-inch TVs for under $500
This 70-inch 4K TV from TCL is now on sale at Best Buy for just $499.99 – that’s a $330 discount, and utterly incredible value for money. It supports 4K resolution, as well as HDR for better colors and lighting. You also get the Google Assistant and Chromecast built-in for seamless access to streaming apps, plus a handy voice remote so you can tell it to play shows, launch apps or even dim the lights in your home. Very fancy.
This huge TV was originally reduced to $599.99, but has since received a further $100 reduction, which makes an already excellent value TV even better. We haven’t seen another TV deal that’s quite such incredible value for money – and we doubt it’ll be beaten across the entire holiday weekend.

The best-value mattress sale is at Nectar
Mattresses always get some of the biggest discounts in the Memorial Day sales, and despite inflation, this year is no different. The absolute best deal if you’re looking for sheer value for money today is on the Nectar Memory Foam mattress, over on the Nectar site.
We were impressed with this lower-mid-range memory foam mattress when we tested it – we gave it 4/5 stars in our Nectar Mattress review, and it sits at number two in our best mattress guide. It’s particularly comfortable for side and back sleeping, with good pressure relief and temperature regulation. (If you’re a hot sleeper though we’d recommend a hybrid like the Saatva Classic instead (opens in new tab)).
The Nectar mattress was already competitively priced, but it now has $100 off, which drops the price of a queen from $899 to $799 – plus you get $499-worth of free sleep accessories, including two pillows, sheets and a mattress protector (which we always advise to prolong the life of your investment). Only the Cocoon Chill comes close for value for money, but Nectar still takes the crown.
The other thing we like about Nectar is you get a whole year to decide whether it’s right for you, and there’s a forever warranty as well. Bargain.

Almost 40% off Fire TV Stick
Amazon’s opening its deal section with a 38% discount on the Fire TV Stick: it’s now $24.99, down from $39.99. That’s $5 off the lowest price we’ve seen for the Alexa-voice remote, and likely as low as it’s going to get this side of Prime Day.
