It’s a great feeling to nab a good deal on things you actually need and would have bought at full price. And if you’ve been thinking of overhauling your bedroom or bathroom, get ready to feel the smug satisfaction of money well saved for the rest of the day. The Wirecutter Deals team has spent tireless hours scanning the corners of the internet to find the best prices on what you need to make your bedroom and bathroom comfortable and functional. It’s time to replace the soap-scum-spattered shower curtain and those flattened pancakes that were once called pillows. Here’s how you can do it for less.
The best pillow for stomach-sleepers
Sleep Number PlushComfort Pillow Ultimate Standard
Deal price: $40 with code BEDDING50; street price: $80
Telling someone you’re a stomach-sleeper is the fastest way to get a lecture on better sleeping positions. But stomach-sleepers don’t need the sass—what they need is a pillow that will support their necks while they sleep in their preferred position. The Sleep Number PlushComfort Pillow does just that. It’s a customizable down-alternative option that’s softer than shredded foam, making it perfect for sleepers who need less loft. Though Sleep Number doesn’t accept returns, it does offer a 30-day free exchange policy and provides a five-year warranty on its pillows. Although most of the deals we see for the PlushComfort Pillow are buy one, get one 50% off, this deal is one of the few we’ve seen for a single pillow. The discount code BEDDING50 brings the price of one pillow down to $40 and doesn’t lock you into buying more than one, so this is a good opportunity to snag a great pillow for less.

This is the first discount we’ve ever posted for this mattress, making now as good a time as any to pick up a new mattress for your kid. Just be sure to use the code WC17 at checkout before the deal expires on August 24.

This particular deal brings the price of the Kids Edition Echo Dot (available in light blue and rainbow) and the Echo Glow down to $50. This also happens to be the first discount we’ve posted for the night-light, making now a great time to pick up the bundle if you’ve been looking for ways to lull your kids to sleep at night.

LectroFan White Noise Machine (white)
Deal price: $32 with clipped on-page coupon; street price: $45
Do the sounds of the house settling at night keep you up past your bedtime? Since it’s definitely not the boogeyman, you might want to invest in a white noise machine to block out the sounds of the outside world. Compact and efficient, the LectroFan is the best white noise machine we’ve tested. It does a great job of masking shrill noises that might be keeping you up at night, and it features 10 fan sounds and 10 ambient noise variations to choose from. Right now, the LectroFan, in white, is discounted to $32 at checkout when you clip the on-page coupon—and even though we’ve seen better deals on this fan in the past, we still think this is a nice drop on your ticket to a good night’s sleep.

A simple shower curtain liner
Maytex Water Repellent Fabric Shower Curtain Liner
Deal price: $7; street price: $10
It’s time to toss that old, plastic shower-curtain liner that’s starting to collect soap scum around the edges. Luckily, our affordable shower liner—which is resistant to soap scum—is now on sale for even less. The Maytex Water Repellent Fabric Shower Curtain Liner, now down to $7, is made of washable polyester that works as well as liners costing double the price. Though the Maytex is technically a liner, our guide writers think that it’s thick and polished enough to double as a shower curtain (as long as you like the standard, off-white bone color, which is the only sale option).

The softest towel we tested
Frontgate Resort Cotton Bath Towel
Deal price: $26 with code FG345383; street price: $34
It’s time to ditch those uncomfortably scratchy towels and replace them with ones you won’t dread wrapping yourself in after a hot shower. The Frontgate’s Resort Cotton Bath Towels, which happen to be the most comfortable and luxurious towels we tested, are now down to $26 per towel when you use the code FG345383. Because they are made from long-staple Turkish cotton, they’re smooth and durable, able to withstand multiple wash cycles without losing their plushness. Though we’ve posted several deals in the past featuring bundled Frontgate towels where the price was less per towel, this deal actually matches the lowest price we’ve seen for a towel on its own.

Hotel-quality bath mat at home
Frontgate Resort Bath Mat
Deal price: $37; street price: $56
Though you might not be traveling right now, you can still mimic the small luxuries of a high-end hotel at home. The Frontgate Resort Bath Mat is thick and soft while still being slim enough to fit under a low-profile door. In our tests, it proved to be incredibly absorbent, and (unlike some of the other mats we tried) it didn’t feel soggy or soaked-through after one person drip-dried on it. And though the Frontgate doesn’t have non-slip backing, we still think it’s a great mat that can withstand a household of multiple people. It is now down to $37 shipped when you use the code FG345383, a new low on a normally pricey hotel-style bath mat.
