In today’s rummage through the internet’s sale bins, we found lots of exceptional deals on things we’ve written about before (many of which, might we add, are rarely on sale). There’s a two-in-one touchscreen laptop for studying and streaming, the supersharp tweezers beloved by brow experts, and some actually compressive leggings for your next workout.


Best Buy is hosting a Flash Sale today only with deep discounts on laptops, kitchen appliances, speakers, TVs, and more. Looking through the full selection, we spotted the lo-fi cousin of one of our favorite AeroGarden smart gardens, which comes with a six-pod gourmet-herb seed kit.

If you or a loved one is headed back to campus at the end of summer, here’s $200 off a tablet-slash-laptop from HP — a similar model to one of our favorite laptops for studying, streaming, and multitasking.

And whether you’re headed back to the office or continuing to work from home, this top-rated Breville Nespresso VertuoPlus espresso-maker — which comes with an extra-large water tank and an Aeroccino3 milk frother for lattes — is certain to elevate countless Monday mornings.

The best time to score a Dyson (a.k.a. the Rolls-Royce of vacuum cleaners) is whenever they’re on sale. This one is designed to capture dirt, dust, and pet dander and features a self-adjusting cleaner head that accommodates both carpeting and hard floors.

An unexpected Best Buy (and Walmart) sale find, Tweezerman tweezers are a favorite among aestheticians for their comfortable grip and sharp, slanted edges.

Lots of Girlfriend Collective is on sale over at Nordstrom, including the brand’s high-rise leggings, which one writer says stay snug during even the most intense workouts. (And if the moss green shown isn’t your thing, don’t worry — there are several other in-stock colors to choose from.)

Celebrate America’s national parks just like the cool teens do.

These glass-and-sterling-silver hoops from Wolf Circus won’t irritate sensitive ears (and are much heftier than your standard lucite pair).

Here’s 50 percent off the KKW Beauty contour and highlighter sticks that left our beauty columnist looking like a “glowing, bronzed goddess.”

And finally, here’s a top-rated SPF 50 sunscreen spray from Sun Bum that stays on for hours — and “actually smells amazing.”

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.
