15 Best Cool Useful Things to Buy on Amazon Under $20

In 15 best cool useful things to buy on Amazon under $20, we scoured Amazon for some of the highest quality, inexpensive items on the online market. Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is nearly a $500 billion market cap behemoth that will surely be the king of online retailers during this year’s holiday shopping season. No wonder it is among the top 3 most popular stocks among hedge funds. Smart money knows that shoppers will be looking at Amazon to buy cool useful things under $20.

Our criteria were the number of reviews, star rankings, and prices. We also took to reading some of the written reviews to see if anyone mentioned the product’s usefulness. Below, we’ll explain our points system in detail, so listen up.

To determine whether something is the best or worst, reviews are always a great help. In fact, if you don’t at least glance at the reviews before buying an online product, you should start. Because who better can tell you about the product than those who have already bought it? Amazon’s review system allows each buyer to rank the item on a scale of 1 to 5 stars, then write an optional explanation.

For this list of the 15 best cool useful things to buy on Amazon under $20, we only ranked items with a full 5-star ranking, which says a lot. It means there are practically no bad (or low star) reviews. But the item’s ranking isn’t as important as the amount of people who ranked it. A product can have 5 stars, but if only one buyer reviewed it, that doesn’t say much.

So for our first points criteria, we scored items on the number of reviews they received. Items that had only 1 to 10 reviews received no points, items with anywhere from 11 to 50 reviews received 1 point and items with over 50 reviews received 2 points.

Then we had to determine if a product was useful. To do this, we read through the reviews on each product’s home page looking for terms like “effective, useful, helpful, beneficial, durable and/or functional,” spoken positively about the product. We counted how many times we found one of the above words, and gave the object no points if we found them 0 to 2 times, 1 point if found 3 to 5 times and 2 points if found more than 6 times.

Of course, it’s nearly impossible to broadly define the word “useful” because it means many different things to many different people. It could mean anything from “entertaining” to “adorable” to “practical.” But we believed this was the best system for finding the most widely useful products, though no doubt there are many other products on Amazon that you might find more useful than others do.

When it comes to the item’s cost, we only ranked items that were under $20. (Though some of these objects may be on the best things to buy on Amazon under $100 or the cool things to buy on Amazon under $50 list.) But the more inexpensive the item, the more points we racked up for it. Because everyone likes a bargain. Products up to $10 received 2 points, so you can also find some cool things to buy on Amazon under $5 and $10, while products from $10- $19.99 received 1 point.

Oh, and there’s one last factor. To determine whether an item was “cool,” we only ranked items that appeared on Amazon’s new and interesting finds page that’s updated daily. Like the word “useful,” the meaning of the word “cool” can vary from person to person, but hey, if Amazon says it’s cool, it’s most likely cool to anyone. And though not all of these products are prime, you can certainly find some of the best things to buy on Amazon Prime in this list as well.
