'A bright idea!' Score two bestselling LED headlamps for under $7 each — nearly 60% off

What is it?

As we move deeper into fall, it's getting dark earlier and the sun is rising later. But our lives don't stop when it's dark. Whether you're walking the dog in the early a.m. or bringing in the groceries in the p.m., hands-free lighting helps. Enter the No. 1 bestselling GearLight LED Headlamp: This bright, lightweight hero offers seven light modes. With the current discount, the on-page coupon and the coupon code combined, you can pick up two for $13 — roughly $6.50 each.

These bestselling headlamps can tilt up to 45 degrees and offer seven lighting modes, including a flashing white strobe light and a red beam for improved night vision. Keep one in your house and one in your glove compartment.

Why is this a good deal?

It's a triple discount! The pair is already on sale, but the on-page coupon will save you another 10% and the coupon code nets another 25% off for a grand total of 57% off. Snagging two for under $7 each is a steal.

Why do I need this?

Sunlight is shrinking, but your to-do list is not. When you need to handle tasks outside and there's no natural light, these headlamps are a huge help. Sure, you might feel like John McClane trying to get work done with a flashlight held between your teeth, but you'll get tired of that pretty fast.

The runtime is around 10 hours on the lowest setting (turning them brighter will burn the battery faster), and they're battery-powered so you can easily swap them. Of course, rechargeable batteries — like these from Energizer — will help eliminate unnecessary waste.

The headlamps are also weather-resistant, so you needn't worry about getting left in the dark (ba-dum-tsh) if it begins to rain or snow. They're a fantastic purchase for camping. After all, putting up a tent is hard enough on its own. Doing it at night is torture.

What reviewers say

A whopping 31,700 shoppers and counting have given these GearLight LED Headlamps a perfect five-star rating.

One confidently kooky neighbor said, "I use these for everything: polishing my nails in the dark, taking my trash out in the wee hours — you name it. Yes, I'm that neighbor. I keep an extra pair in my car in case I want to eat a pastry in there at night and not get crumbs everywhere. They're great! Oh, I use this lamp for hiking too ... in the dark of course. Highly recommend."

Of course, it has applications for handyman work too: "Will use it to do plumbing repairs — I need to keep my hands free to pinpoint leaks in pipes."

"A bright idea!" added another five-star fan. "I love these. I got them for walking my dog at night, and I don’t care if I look like weirdo.

"These headlamps are just what i needed to safely walk my dog at night. The light is bright and provides a wide area of illumination. And my hands are free to clean up after my dog. The band is adjustable and the light itself can be pointed straight out or angled down. I'm very happy with my purchase. The only downside is the lamp takes 3 AAA batteries, which are not included," wrote one customer. (Psst: Consider this $6 eight-pack from Amazon Basics or invest in some rechargeable Energizer batteries.)

Get around 10 hours of charge from these wildly popular lights with three AAA batteries.
