It’s pretty much a given at this point that you should have COVID-19 test kits handy at your place for the just in case. Whether someone suddenly develops the sniffles or you want to be cautious before going to visit Grandma, having a kit — or three — at home can make all the difference between being able to move on with your life and stressing out over whether you or a family member actually has the virus.

Sure, you can get a few test kits from the government for free, but you’re limited on how many tests you can receive. Those kits can also take ages to arrive, which isn’t exactly helpful when you need results ASAP. That’s why it’s so exciting to see that Amazon is currently offering up a mega-sale on top-rated COVID-19 tests. That’s right — an actual sale on COVID-19 tests, which has been about as common in the past as spotting a unicorn strolling down your street.

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

These COVID-19 tests are on sale for a limited time, so stock up while you can.

The BD Veritor At-Home COVID-19 Digital Test Kit sale is so good, it kind of seems like someone at Amazon pushed the wrong button. The kit is a whopping 82 percent off (not a typo) and it’s so easy to use. Simply do a lower nasal swab to get a sample, put it in your test strip, sync the whole thing up to your phone and get results in just 15 minutes. There are video and written instructions to guide you along the way. Worth noting: There are two tests in the kit, so you’re actually paying just $3 a test! (Want to really load up? Amazon is also offering up a 30-pack of BD Veritor tests for $120, down from $899.)

Thousands of Amazon shoppers give this kit a perfect review. “In this environment, I don’t think that you can test enough,” one happy customer said. “While there are other at-home COVID tests, I was never sure if I did the test correctly. With this test, you download an app that has super easy to follow instructional videos that guide you through the test. At the end of the test, you place the test stick onto a card (everything is conveniently arranged in the box) and snap a picture.The app analyzes the picture for you and you get an official result (Negative for me. Yay!).No more looking at lines yourself and not being sure whether you did the whole thing correctly. I wish they had had this test months ago!”

The Clinitest Rapid Covid-19 Antigen Self-Test kit is a five-pack, so you’ve got enough tests to monitor your whole family. And, at $37.50 for the entire set, each test comes out to just $7.50 a pop. The test, which is eligible for reimbursement through some health insurance providers, involves a quick nasal swab that you slide into the test cassette. Wait 15 minutes and you’ll have your results. You can either follow the instructions in the box or watch a step-by-step instructional video online to guide you through the whole process.

Reviewers swear this test is super easy to use. “Nice, simple design with clearly written instructions,” a five-star fan said. “Easier to use than some of the earlier COVID-19 at home tests I have tried. Very clear, easier to read results. Some of the other tests I have used had barely visible control and test lines.”
