'No more bobblehead': This popular travel pillow is $16 for Presidents' Day — that's nearly 50% off

More than 22,000 five-star fans recommend the adjustable memory-foam marvel for pain-free slumber on long flights.

Vacation is great, but the actual travel component? Not so much. How many of us have spent long flights attempting to find a comfortable sleeping position, only to feel like a bobblehead doll with our head occasionally resting on our neighbor's shoulder? Avoiding the embarrassment is easier with the right accessories, including the top-selling Mlvoc Memory Foam Travel Neck Pillow. It will keep you comfy from point A to point B, and it's nearly half off thanks to Amazon's epic Presidents' Day sale.

You can now return your neck to its upright position.

Why is it a good deal?

Down from $30, this $16 deal — that's nearly 50% off — matches this travel pillow's Black Friday price. If you have an upcoming trip, it's almost guaranteed to make the journey more bearable — and who can put a price on comfort?

Why do I need this?

What sets the Mlvoc Memory Foam Travel Neck Pillow apart from those flimsy U-shaped ones sold at the airport? For starters, it's made from cushy yet supportive memory foam to keep your neck in place rather than falling forward or to the side, which can result in a lot of strain and pain. Its ergonomic design includes two neck support points at the front and back, and its curved shape won't cover your face like many other models. It also has an adjustable rope lock so you can customize the fit.

Another great feature is its breathable, sweat-resistant, machine-washable case. And if you're short on room in your carry-on, it comes with a handy bag that compresses it to half its original size.

The Mlvoc travel pillow would be more than worth its low price for all of the aforementioned attributes, but it also comes with a contoured eye mask and earplugs. Contoured eye masks are comfier than flat ones because they don't put direct pressure on your eyes, and who wouldn't want a pair of earplugs on hand to drown out noisy neighbors?

What reviewers say

Over 22,000 Amazon shoppers swear by the Mlvoc Memory Foam Travel Neck Pillow for staying comfy en route, so you know it's doing something right.

"They hand these out at the gates of heaven," said one giddy gadabout. "I was skeptical of this neck pillow because of the shape, but oh man, do I love it! The little to-go bag is also a huge plus. It's so handy to just roll up, pop in and throw into my bag."

"I have a pinched nerve in my neck and just returned from a 16-hour nonstop flight to Dubai," noted another fan. "I was dreading the flight because I can’t sleep much on planes. My traveling companions said on the outbound flight, all I did was sleep. This neck pillow gave much more support to my neck and I had no pain. I now sleep with this pillow to support my neck. I plan to buy another in case it’s discontinued."

One queasy customer even said it helped them with motion sickness: "No more bobblehead," they proclaimed. "Not only does it provide the traditional back and side support, if you cinch it up with the included drawstrings, it provides forward chin support. ... I tend toward motion sickness, and with this thing on nice and snug, it reduced some of my head bobbling during turbulence so I didn't feel nearly as queasy as I usually do."

"Finally, a neck pillow that I can use when wearing my over-the-ear headphones," wrote another happy traveler. "The only minor drawback is getting it back into its bag. The pillow is firm for support and the bag is small for packability, so I guess this is the middle ground. I like to travel light, but this is a very worthwhile addition."

Pillow + eye mask + ear plugs = serenity we'd appreciate even when we aren't traveling. Other colors like navy blue (shown) are available, but the discount isn't as sweet.
