- Coronavirus face masks and hand sanitizers are definitely still the best-selling products among our readers because everyone knows at this point that a second wave of coronavirus infections is coming.
- Amazon is finally beginning to showcase deals on nonessential items again though, and it has led to a surge in sales across several different categories.
- The consumer electronics category has been particularly hot this week, and there’s a surprise on this week’s list of Amazon’s 5 best-selling gadgets.

It really couldn’t be more clear which product is the most popular right now among BGR Deals readers: face masks. The CDC says on its coronavirus site that we all should wear a face covering each and every time we leave our homes for any reason. You don’t need a medical-grade mas since you’re also going to be practicing strict social distancing and good hygiene. A well-made 3-ply face mask will work wonders to protect you and those around you, and that’s why tens of thousands of our readers have bought them over the past month. Things like bandanas and DIY face masks are okay, but the ones we linked are much better and they’re only $0.70 each right now. Why not take advantage and get some extra protection?
Aside from face masks, electronics are still quite popular among our readers because everyone is looking for new toys to play with while sheltering in place. For example, Apple’s insanely popular AirPods Pro are top sellers since they’re available at a new all-time low price on Amazon, and both AirPods 2 models have been flying off the shelves as well. None of Apple’s headphones are popular enough to make Amazon’s top-5 list this week though, so let’s take a look at the gadgets that did.
5. SanDisk 128GB MicroSDXC UHS-I Memory Card for Nintendo Switch
There’s a big surprise on this week’s list, a product that hasn’t made the top 5 in months. That’s right, it’s the SanDisk 128GB MicroSDXC UHS-I Memory Card for Nintendo Switch. This specially made and specially branded microSD card was designed specifically to perform as well as possible in the wildly popular Nintendo Switch. Switch consoles might be impossible to find in stock anywhere right now, but there are clearly still plenty of people who already have a Switch and are looking to expand their storage at a great price.SanDisk 128GB microSDXC Card, Licensed for Nintendo Switch - SDSQXAO-128G-GNCZN List Price:$34.99 Price:$27.99 You Save:$12.24 (35%) Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission
