12 Things on Sale You’ll Actually Want to Buy: From Anker to Levi’s

In today’s sweep of the internet’s sales bins, we found some slightly elevated loungewear in fun tones with subtle details (like pockets! And buttons!) for him and her, minimalist outdoor and indoor home décor, and a gadget for making oodles of zoodles with your seasonal produce.

Nearly every time we write about chargers here on the Strategist, Anker comes up as a brand to buy, and today only, its three-in-one charging station — which simultaneously lets you charge your phone, wireless earbuds, and Apple Watch — is 25 percent off. If you’re still not convinced, consider this: The wireless phone charger that’s part of this product is what made former tech columnist David Pogue finally stop hating wireless chargers.

This set of 140 art supplies — including Crayola pencils, washable markers, and crayons — is also on sale today, and we think it would come in handy for any creative kids who want to draw comic books or decorate Easter eggs.

We’ve been fans of Jabra’s wireless earbuds for the past several years: In 2018, we called them a cheaper dupe for AirPods, and, more recently, our tech writer Jordan Bowman said they had some of the “best sound” out of the nearly dozen wireless headphones he tried. And right now, they’re on sale for $50 — the cheapest we’ve ever seen them.

Mix up your muted lounge look with a pair of bronze-toned leggings from Good American, which are available from XS to 5XL, as part of its sitewide sale. Just use code SAVE25 at checkout.

Cool women of all sizes rave about Levi’s Wedgies, which have a high rise and tapered leg that (in the words of Strategist deputy editor Maxine Builder) make your “butt look good” while still being “comfortable and easy to throw on.” We found this ankle-length pair in Levi’s flash-sale-on-sale section, where everything is an additional half off when you use the code PLUS50 at checkout.

Layer this (deeply discounted) blush-toned quarter-zip under your jean jacket for a pop of color. (But don’t dillydally: Some sizes have already sold out, but it’s still available from 1X to 3X.)

We’ve been told that henleys are some of the most universally “flattering” shirts for men since they have a “body-conscious but still relaxed” fit, and this henley-esque pullover — that’s thicker than your average long-sleeved tee but comes with the signature button-neck — is 25 percent off.

Another henley-esque piece of loungewear for him, this one a slightly elevated sweatshirt from Flint and Tinder, complete with a button-neck and front pocket.

While it may not be apparent just from looking at it, this three-piece product from Oxo is a handheld spiralizer that can create zoodles in spaghetti, fettuccine, or ribbon cuts. (And even though Mother’s Day is still over a month away, we’ve said it makes a great gift for the mom who likes to cook or is trying to eat more vegetables.)

Acupuncturist Gabriel Sher told us that Apotheke’s (made-in-Brooklyn) scented products are an essential part of how he creates a sense of calm at home, and this reed diffuser has earthy notes of cedarwood, sandalwood, and smoky amber.

Since social distancing and outdoor socializing is here to stay in one way or another for a while (at least until we reach herd immunity), here’s a chance to zhuzh up your outdoor space with some black-and-white faux-rattan chairs from CB2.

Or revamp your indoor space with the brand’s speckled terra-cotta lamp, which would look like a sculpture on your bedside table or desk.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape.
