We’re calling it now: the Crest white strips Cyber Monday deal might be the best Cyber Monday deal, period. See, when you think of the high-ticket buys usually associated with this time of year, you probably think of an absurdly large television, or a really good piece of primo outerwear. Maybe a high-powered shaver or an Instant Pot (which is on sale, by the way, in case you’re the last person in the world to own one). But, surprisingly, this year, the very best Cyber Monday deal out there is actually on a humble personal care product: Crest’s teeth whitening strips.
Yes, you read that right: this is the very best deal going as far as we’re concerned. Why? Well, they’re the gold standard for getting a brighter smile at home—without taking a costly trip to the dentist or making a huge mess in your bathroom.
We know what you’re asking yourself: do I actually need whitening strips? Of course not. As long as you’re brushing twice a day (ideally with an excellent toothbrush) and flossing regularly, your teeth are probably clean and healthy enough. But do they look clean? Depending on your diet—and how many cups of coffee you go through—they could probably look a good deal cleaner.
Enter the whitening strip, a plastic strip coated with peroxide that you slap on your teeth and wait for as long as the box tells you to. And they actually work—25,000 reviews on Amazon and a five star average can’t be wrong. Crest says its strips remove years of stains with each use, and that the results can last for more than a year. In our experience, everyone’s response to seeing their pearly whites both pearly and actually white is unadulterated glee. That glee is well worth $50, and feels even more gleeful at $30.
Which brings us back to our bold declaration up top: the Crest white strips Cyber Monday deal is the biggest no-brainer purchase of the whole damn weekend. Got teeth and 30 bucks burning a hole in your back pocket? Forget the pricey flatscreens and swaddly topcoats—if you only buy one thing this “holiday”, make it these.
