Just like the late spring weather we’re having, the internet’s sale bins keep heating up. Today’s roundup is filled with finds to refresh your home and wardrobe, including a Strategist-approved pair of Bluetooth earbuds, a stylish pair of men’s swim trunks, and some deeply discounted Tevas that would make a terrific Father’s Day gift.


We’ve noted before that Samsung’s Bluetooth earbuds are a favorite among Android users, but they’re actually also good enough to convert even some Apple users. These are the newer Plus version of the buds, featuring longer battery life and new color options — and if you’re still on the fence, get off, because this is the cheapest they’ve ever been.

A simple, well-reviewed, and actually nice-looking linen romper from Amazon to keep you cool and stylish this summer. If stripes aren’t your thing, there are seven other on-sale designs to choose from.

If stripes are your thing, here’s a long, Aegean Sea–colored shirtdress you can dress up with heels or down with sandals.

For anyone who’s been holding out on buying an air fryer, this one is well-reviewed, holds three to five servings, and is nearly 60 percent off.

We’ve written before about Barbour’s excellent jackets, but the label also make superb warm-weather clothing, like this pair of aqua swim shorts.

Apt2B’s Memorial Day sale has already begun, with savings of up to 25 percent off depending on how much you spend. But at a minimum, everything is 15 percent off, including this small table lamp that straddles contemporary and vintage styles.

If you’re on the hunt for a Father’s Day gift for your adventure-ready dad, look no further than these tubular Tevas, which are still available in most sizes.

Alternatively, go for the Original Universal Sandal, which we named the best budget hiking sandal (that’s also great for casual wear). It’s available in this neutral gray shade or a brighter multi-color pattern.

And finally, here’s an affordable area rug that can do double duty on your porch or in your living room.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
