30 Awesome Cheap Things On Amazon That Seem Way More Expensive

In my opinion, if there's one rule to follow while shopping, it's to always go for the lowest price tag — within reason. If you see a $50 blender available for $1, then you should probably be suspicious. But if you can find a similar blender for about half of the price, it's likely a safe bet. So if you're on the prowl for cheap Amazon products that are actually awesome, make sure to check out what the site has to offer.

If you can name it, you can probably find it on Amazon for a great price. There are body massagers priced at less than $40, as well as a variety of kitchen gadgets that help you squeeze citrus, sous vide eggs, and even spiralize vegetables. There's even a smart essential oil diffuser that'll help you relax after cooking. You can easily adjust the mist from the comfort of your couch without having to get up, and it's compatible with Alexa so that you can control it using voice commands.

Whether you have something specific in mind or if you're just browsing for fun, there are tons of genius products on Amazon that are more than worth the money.

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.
