The internet’s sales bins are well stocked as we close out the week with lots of deep discounts on items we’ve written about before. There’s a celebrity-favorite body moisturizer that’s surprisingly nongreasy, a Strategist-tested scrub towel for even better showers, and the “holy grail of reusable lunch boxes” that’s excellent for storing leftovers (and weed). But if none of the deals below catch your eye, you very well might find some in our email newsletter.

Urban Outfitters is taking an extra 40 percent off sale styles for a limited time, making this cotton tee just $12. It has a wide, slightly cropped fit for a true ’90s shape.

Available in orange, denim, and ivory, these cargo jeans have a high rise and a 29.5-inch inseam that’ll suit most heights.

Now through the weekend, Strategist readers can take 20 percent off their entire purchase at the Met store with code NYMAG. We suggest putting that coupon toward a gift for mom, who would be delighted to receive a gold-plated necklace that looks like something Aphrodite might have worn.

The Met’s classic Champion sweatshirt is a Strategist favorite. It’ll only get softer (and look more authentically vintage) with each wash.

A rug coaster set would make a thoughtful gift for a picky mother-in-law.

This exceptionally discounted dog toy is a favorite of several pups and pet owners on Amazon. “I am going to be purchasing a couple more of these to stash,” writes one reviewer. “If something happens to Gumby, my dog is going to flip his lid.”

If you’ve been having trouble getting a full eight hours lately, makeup artist Daniel Martin told us he relies on Olly’s melatonin gummies to get some sleep. They have an easy-to-digest, low-sugar formula and contain relaxing botanicals including chamomile and lemon balm.

If you (or Mom) would rather fake a good night’s sleep, the NuFace device helps to depuff and tone the face and neck by sending send soft waves of energy through the skin. It comes recommended to us by several writers and dermatologists, and at 65 percent off, we don’t anticipate it staying in stock for long.

This stylish air purifier from Westinghouse has a nearly perfect rating on Amazon. It has two fan speeds, a three-stage HEPA purification system, and covers up to 250 square feet.

Back in 2017, we deemed Takenaka bento boxes “the holy grail of reusable lunch boxes.” They’re leakproof, dishwasher safe, and microwave safe, and they don’t retain smells or flavors. (Plus they’re “wonderful” for storing weed.)

If you could use a new spring dress or two, J.Crew is offering an extra 50 percent off sale styles with code SHOPNOW. That brings this paisley puff-sleeve dress (originally just shy of $200) down to a very affordable $27.

I haven’t shopped at Roxy since 2007, but brands from the early aughts are making a comeback, and their offerings are, I admit, actually very good. This straw sun hat, for example, is now cheaper than most sunscreens.

Verishop is taking an extra 10 percent off select sale items with code LASTCHANCE, bringing this Google Wi-Fi router (the simpler sister of the Strategist-tested Nest) down to just $45 — the cheapest we’ve seen it yet.

This Strategist-favorite scrub towel is infused with the charcoal of Japanese oak, or binchotan, which is known for its purifying, detoxifying, and anti-bacterial properties.

From $14

And for after your shower, slather on this celebrity-favorite body moisturizer. Dermatologist Dr. Ranella Hirsch says it’s “impressively not greasy considering all the rich ingredients” including squalane, cocoa butter, and shea butter.

A cross between a lip tint and lip balm, makeup artist Hannah Biddle told us Clinique’s low-maintenance Chubby Sticks add “just enough color while being moisturizing at the same time.”

Finally, place this woven basket in the kids’ room to store toys, then use it as a hamper as they grow.

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.
