Whether you’re in need of accessories for your laptop, workstation, or wardrobe, we found lots of upgrades in today’s sweep of the internet’s sale bins. There’s a midi dress fit for a picnic, our favorite lightweight classroom-ready Chromebook, and a sleek, elegant desk.

Select Anker products are 20 percent off over at Amazon, including this power bank (and cable set) that’s nearly identical to one of our favorite, expert-recommended models.

During Madewell’s Secret Stock Sale, you can get an extra 60 percent off already discounted items with code PSST. We particularly like this beaded tote that’s just the right size for beach days and park hangs.

And this picnic-ready midi dress that’s still available in all standard and petite sizes.

Add some instant edge to any outfit with this gold-plated, under-$20 chain necklace.

Whether as a gift to a recent high-school grad or for yourself, you can snag this HP Chromebook — one of our favorite lightweight 14-inch models — for $50 off at Best Buy.


It may not be the steepest discount, but we did spot a very rare deal on our favorite Maude vibrator over at Urban Outfitters.

Those who aren’t returning to the office at the end of the summer can create a more permanent (and stylish) setup with this minimalist desk from Wayfair.

We also found an exceptional deal on this geometric area rug that’ll tie together just about any dorm room.

Because this reversible pillow from Kate Spade has one linen and one velvet side, we’d like to think you’re getting two pillows for the price of (less than) one.

And finally, head back to campus (or the office) with this backpack from Timbuk2 that’ll fit all tablets and laptops up to 17 inches.

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.
