As we head into the weekend, we’ve spotted lots of truly excellent deals on a number of things we’ve written about before, including our favorite Dyson vacuum for pet hair, an editor-approved water bottle for under $5, and a reusable bag trio for the price of just one. (As always, if you want even more deals sent straight to your inbox, sign up for our email newsletter.)

Best Buy’s Black Friday in July sales event starts today, with deep discounts on laptops, speakers, headphones, appliances, and more. If you (or a recent grad) are need of a new laptop, this touch-screen model from Dell doubles as a tablet and comes with a 30-day free trial of Microsoft Office.

Our go-to pet-hair-busting Dyson — which one dog trainer told us is “so light that it feels like you’re holding a piece of luggage” — is now $160 off.

Also discounted (by more than 50 percent) are these noise-canceling headphones from Sony, which former tech columnist David Pogue called “the best noise-canceling headphones ever made” — so much so that he won’t fly without them.

Madewell is taking an extra 30 percent off already on-sale styles, including these stretchy high-rise skinny jeans that one stylist says make legs look “wonderfully long.”

If you prefer a looser fit, these carpenter jeans have a relaxed, straight leg and are made from long-lasting Japanese denim.

If you’re looking forward to fall (and tired of getting caught in summer showers), this waterproof raincoat is half-off and still available in three different colors and most sizes.

Keep your keys, phone, and cards close on your next hike or bike ride with this foam-padded fanny pack.

Over at REI, we spotted a great sale on these surprisingly nice-looking Chacos that don’t skimp on arch support.

If you’re getting a head start on back-to-school shopping, here’s a sturdy backpack from Champion with an edgier-than-usual design.

Here’s a truly excellent deal from Crate and Barrel on a cooling linen quilt for those people (a.k.a. all of us these days) who tend to run hot.

Alternatively, zhuzh up your seating areas with this squiggly indoor-outdoor pillow from Crate & Barrel.

Nordstrom Rack is currently taking an extra 25 percent off select clearance items, including this ’80s-inspired sweatshirt that’ll come in handy on your next overly air-conditioned flight (or grocery run).
