You can always count on Amazon to offer a good deal, especially right now. The retailer recently launched its Holiday Dash event that features dozens of early holiday discounts, so you can save big on electronics, home essentials, and more (way before Black Friday). Other than its main deals, Amazon also has a secret home outlet section where you can find major markdowns on everything from comforters to kitchen organizers to holiday decor — and we picked out the best 15 for you. 

Here are the 15 best Amazon home outlet deals to score this weekend:

From forehead thermometers and touchless soap dispensers to blankets and slippers, there are tons of amazing finds you can get for less in the outlet right now. Marked down to just $14, the Vosthems Forehead Thermometer is a bathroom cabinet essential. The touchless thermometer reads body temperature simply by being placed a few centimeters away from the forehead. It has three backlight colors to indicate a normal, low, or high fever reading, and it can also be set to measure food temperatures.

If you’ve been wanting to spruce up your bedding as the temperatures drop, you can find cozy blankets and comforters for as low as $13 in the outlet. The Emme Velvet Blanket is a popular choice with nearly 900 five-star ratings. Made out of 100 percent microfiber, the blanket is even softer than “the softest thing you’ve ever felt,” according to shoppers, and is high quality for its price tag.
