This trending Frigidaire mini fridge — on sale for $30 — can plug into your car

If lukewarm drinks aren't on your summer 2024 bingo card, this compact cooler chills up to six cans at a time. Road trip, anyone?

There's nothing like cracking open a cold, crisp can of seltzer on a sweltering day. But popping open some lukewarm soda and trying to sip it without wincing — well, the thought is making me cringe as I type! And I'm certainly not alone, seeing as this vintage-style Frigidaire Portable Mini Fridge has been trending on social media in recent weeks. Not only is it impossibly chic, it also plugs into your car or a wall outlet to keep things cool without needing messy ice or freezer packs. Score! Oh, and perhaps most exciting, it's currently marked down as part of Walmart's July 4th blowout.

$30 at Walmart

Why is it a good deal? 💰

This retro-inspired cooler might look like a million bucks, but thanks to this sale it'll set you back just $30 — less than its price at Amazon. It's the best price we're seeing for this model online, and considering how much use you'll get out of it during this scorcher of a summer, it's a total steal.

Why do I need this? 🤔

Clocking in at just 4 pounds (when empty), the Frigidaire Portable Mini Fridge is a lightweight companion that'll accompany you on road trips, hotel stays and more. Plug it into your car's 12V adapter and you're all set with cold drinks while en route to the beach. Or, connect it to a 110V wall outlet at work so you can have chilled bevs on demand at your desk.

No matter where you bring it, this pint-sized appliance can store six cans while cooling them to about 28°F less than the surrounding temperature. And because it's insulated, you'll likely find that your items stay chilled even after it's been unplugged.

A stylish faux leather handle makes it a breeze to tote around and the rubber latch ensures a seal to keep the contents inside cold. And it's not just for beverages — you can use it for stashing everything from snacks to beauty products.

What reviewers say 💬

Not only is this mini fridge a hit on social media, Walmart shoppers are loving it too.

Pros 👍

"Great product!" exclaimed one user. "I purchased this to take with me on my job as a cross-state bus driver. It works great and keeps everything cold."

Another fan shared: "It was 80°F in my office yesterday, and this little thing was so cold, some condensation froze at the bottom. I have had it on continuously for the last week and it keeps my drinks so cold."

"The cooler is lightweight, runs quietly and works [well]!" raved a third, who advised, "I do recommend having your drinks pre-chilled when packing the cooler."

Cons 👎

Several shoppers had the same qualm as this reviewer, who wrote, "I wish that the on/off switch and power outlets were on the side of the cooler instead of under it because it is difficult to get to them." That said, they added, "It was used on and off for over 40 hours and worked perfectly."

"It does have a little fan, so if you're bothered by white noise, you may not like it," cautioned a final buyer. "Does it work? Absolutely! Does it plug into your car correctly? Absolutely."

A deal this good will make you wanna do the can-can!
