For people concerned about their health, finances, and the environment, e-bikes are a practical and inexpensive way to get from place to place without breaking too much of a sweat or busting your budget (relative to the cost of cars). Most models are basically like regular bikes, but your pedaling actually activates a battery-powered motor, making trips up hills and through rough terrain far easier and more efficient. And when it comes to electric bicycles, the Ecotric FAT20S900-MB 48V folding e-bike is a great entry point for the cost-conscious.

The Ecotric FAT20S900-MB 48V can be ridden in both throttle mode—where the motor takes care of all the movement on its own—and pedal-assist mode, which means the rider has to pedal to get the motor to run (though it's far easier to pedal than a traditional bike). The bike itself comes equipped with 20-inch-by-4-inch tires and a powerful 48V motor that can handle muddy trails, snow, sand, dirt, clay, and grass, with a top speed of around 20 miles per hour.

For the body, the FAT20S900-MB 48V is constructed from a sturdy aluminum alloy and weighs in at around 55 pounds, so you don't have to worry about fragility. That being said, it's not bulky, either—the bike can easily fold up for storage in your trunk or even under your desk, where it can be charged for five to seven hours in between trips.

Since the bike has a lot of features, the FAT20S900-MB 48V is also outfitted with an easy-to-read LCD screen that delivers data on remaining battery life and speed, with an additional USB port that lets you charge your phone while you ride.

Of course, the best way to see all the Ecotric FAT20S900-MB 48V has to offer is to actually ride one, and if you're still unsure, you can take advantage of the company's 30-day at-home trial window. If you don't like it, you can return it without having to pay to ship it back (there is a restocking fee, though.)

You can find the FAT20S900-MB 48V e-bike starting at $970 on Ecotric’s online store right here.

Now that Prime Day is over, and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday still a few weeks away, online deals may seem harder to come by. And while it can be a hassle to scour the internet for promo codes, buy-one-get-one deals, and flash sales, Amazon actually has an extensive coupon page you might not know about that features deals to look through every day.

As pointed out by People, the coupon page breaks deals down by categories, like electronics, home & kitchen, and groceries (the coupons even work with SNAP benefits). Since most of the deals revolve around the essentials, it's easy to stock up on items like Cottonelle toilet paper, Tide Pods, Cascade dishwasher detergent, and a 50 pack of surgical masks whenever you're running low.

But the low prices don't just stop at necessities. If you’re looking for the best deal on headphones, all you have to do is go to the electronics coupon page and it will bring up a deal on these COWIN E7 PRO noise-canceling headphones, which are now $80, thanks to a $10 coupon you could have missed.

Alternatively, if you are looking for deals on specific brands, you can search for their coupons from the page. So if you've had your eye on the Homall S-Racer gaming chair, you’ll find there's currently a coupon that saves you 5 percent, thanks to a simple search.

To discover all the deals you have been missing out on, head over to the Amazon Coupons page.

If you're looking for another face mask to bring with you while you're out and about, the Electric Respirator LED Fan Mask offers plenty of protection, thanks to a four-layer, KN95-certified filter and a two-speed fan motor for constant fresh air. And while it may sound like a massive contraption to wear, it’s actually a tiny geometric piece that's available in black or white.

The custom four layers of filters in the Electric Respirator LED Fan Mask are designed to keep the air you breathe safe and clean, which starts with a strong anti-bacterial net to filter large particles in the air. Anything that gets through there will be checked at the second filter—the activated carbon filter, where particles are sterilized and deodorized. It’ll even keep you safe from harmful substances like formaldehyde.

If stubborn particles like pollen, smoke, and dust still make their way through the first two layers, they’ll be faced with a HEPA filter at the third layer. A fourth and final layer works to inhibit bacterial growth through the release of negative oxygen ions. The two-speed fan motor doubles down on moisture prevention.

You can get the modern four-layer mask in black or white, and for a limited time, you can get them each in black or white two-packs for $87.

Prices subject to change.
