Whether you’re savoring summer or looking forward to fall, we found lots of fashionable (and practical) offerings in today’s sweep of the sales bins. There’s a chiropractor-recommended percussion massager for soothing sore muscles, our favorite tote bag for beach days and office commutes, and a Strategist-approved water bottle that’ll also keep your coffee iced (or warm) well beyond the work day.

We’d bring this Madewell Transport Tote — one of our favorite work bags for women — back to the office and to the beach.

Select Calvin Klein underwear is 40 percent off over at Macy’s, including this five-pack of our favorite boxer briefs for men.

Lots of L.L.Bean is also 25 percent off over at Nordstrom (whose annual Anniversary Sale goes live for non-cardholders tomorrow), including this lightweight but water-repellent rain jacket made from recycled nylon.

You can also take $70 off the Hypervolt percussion massager, which one chiropractor says “can help loosen the muscles and increase agility.”

These supportive platform slides from Vagabond will add height without sacrificing comfort. (If you’re between sizes, we recommend sizing up.)

The actually-compressive unitard one Strategist writer describes as “Tour de France meets beginner ballet class.”

It’s rare to find an air conditioner (let alone a smart air conditioner) on sale in the middle of summer. This one from GE is similar to one of our favorite easy-to-install smart models and will cool rooms up to 550 square feet.

Shopbop is taking up to 70 percent off select clothing, accessories, and gifts, including this Strategist-approved stainless-steel water bottle that keeps liquids cold for up to 25 hours and hot for up to 12 hours.

Here’s a truly great deal on a status-y Staud baguette bag, a ’90s (and ’21) summer staple.

And finally, level up your WFH desk set-up (or your actual desk set-up) with this leather-clad stapler from Jonathan Adler.

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.
