3. Best Home Appliance Deal: Roborock Q7 Max+ Robot Vacuum Cleaner


  • Mops and vacuums simultaneously
  • Features several cleaning customisation options
  • Self-emptying dustbin
  • Efficiently tracks cleaning routes


  • Does not work on a 5GHz Wi-Fi network, some reviewers say

On the lookout for an all-in-one floor cleaner? Roborock Q7 Max+ doesn’t just vacuum, it mops and empties its own dustbin. This capable robot vacuum uses 4,200Pa of suction power to navigate around your home and efficiently clean up dust and debris. Its LiDAR (light detection and ranging) navigation system allows it to create precise maps, and monitor cleaning routes. Reviewers say the device’s dustbin and water tank are quite large (470ml and 350ml respectively), so they don’t have to clean it out or refill very often. But do note that it works on a 2.5GHz Wi-Fi connection, so if you have a 5GHz connection, you might find a more suitable pick from this list

Bonus: Buy with 0% installments and pay Dh249.92 for 12 months with select banks. You can also redeem and extra 10% discount with Citibank, by applying the code ‘CB10JUL’ at checkout.

If you’re looking to buy a refrigerator, Midea’s double-door fridge has a lot to offer. This mid-sized appliance optimises space, especially in its door storage, which can accommodate tall, two-litre bottles. You can control the temperature by alternating between four settings: cold, colder, coldest and supercooling. The last option is great if you’d like to quickly cool down soft drinks or juices before a party. A multi-layered carbon air filter helps ensure food stays fresh for longer. The fridge even includes a special egg tray that expands to fit a dozen eggs.

Bonus: Buy with 0% installments and pay Dh104.59 for 12 months with select banks. Redeem an extra 10% discount with Citibank by applying the code ‘CB10JUL’ at checkout.

  • Compact design
  • Easy to use and clean
  • Multifunctional

It comes with six sets of detachable heating plates, with specialised grooves for waffles, sandwiches, and barbecued meats and vegetables.

6. Best Headphones Deal: SoundPEATS A7 Pro Bluetooth Headset


  • Excellent noise reduction technology
  • Connects with two devices simultaneously
  • Lightweight design
  • Impressive battery life


  • Monoaural headset may not suit your needs

Whether you’re gaming or working, SoundPEATS A7 Pro offers excellent audio, with a high-quality mic, ensuring you’re connected and clear at all times. The device uses artificial intelligence (AI) technology for noise cancellation – but do note that it’s a monoaural (or single ear) headset, so you will be able to hear surrounding sounds/voices from the other ear. You can pair it via Bluetooth 5.2 to two mobile phones or devices so that you’re connected to them simultaneously. The headset features a handy one-key mute function, along with volume controls. It’s a lightweight device that’s excellent for remote office workers and gamers alike.

7. Best Home Deal: TUOYECHEN Mirror Tiles (10 Pieces)

An easy way to add a little pizzazz to your home, TUOYECHEN’s mirror tiles are extremely easy to use. Made of high-quality acrylic, they offer a good substitute for glass mirrors, especially in high-traffic areas or in your child’s room. The mirrors have a striped effect, making them look three-dimensional, and they are applied onto the wall with an adhesive sticker. Reviewers say they’re easy to peel and produce a pleasant art deco look, when placed.
