A new week’s rummage through the internet’s sale bins has unearthed several Strategist favorites at a range of price points. There’s a dermatologist-recommended skin tint that rarely goes on sale, a deeply discounted bikini in stock in all sizes, and an under-$100 pair of AirPods to connect with ease to any Apple device.


The Apple earbuds beloved by teensathletestech experts, and Strategist writers for their comfortable fit and seamless Bluetooth syncing are under $100 for a limited time.

AirPods Pro are also down to $174, the cheapest we’ve seen them. Unlike the pair above, they have “immersive noise cancellation and black vents to alleviate that completely sealed-off, underwater feeling,” explains our tech writer, Jordan Bowman. They can also be switched into transparency mode, allowing for outside sounds to pass through if you’re cycling or running.

This little money tree — considered by some to be a symbol of prosperity — requires only indirect light, making it one of the easiest houseplants to care for.


Back in 2020, the Class’s Taryn Toomey told us she adds this dietary supplement to her coffee before her morning workouts to stave off cravings. “It’s not a heavy, dense food that my stomach has to digest,” she says. “[It’s] just a quick source of energy.”

Saks Fifth Avenue is taking up to 70 percent off select in-season styles, including this one-shoulder cotton tank. Because it’s mid-length rather than cropped, it’ll pair well with both high- and low-rise denim.

In case you missed it, Sephora’s spring sale is live for Rouge-level members. (The sale opens for VIB-level members tomorrow, and entry-level Beauty Insiders on April 7.) Included in the sale is this skin tint from Ilia, which dermatologist Caroline Robinson recommends for its SPF 40 sun protection, “skinlike” coverage, and hydrating formula that “supports the skin barrier.”

J.Crew is taking 30 percent off sitewide (including sale items) with code SPRING. We’d put that discount toward this Y2K-inspired O-ring bikini top, which is still in stock in sizes XXS to XXXL in both brown and black.

The matching side-tie bikini bottoms, now under $30.

Certified as asthma- and allergy-friendly, Dyson’s air purifier can function as both a fan and a heater, so you can use it year-round. It connects to the Dyson app, so you can monitor air quality and control the device remotely. Today only, it’s $100 off at Best Buy.

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.
