In today’s sales-bin sweep, we found great deals on home, beauty, and accessories, including an under-$50 portable speaker loved by our tech writer, 20 percent off splurge-worthy skin care, and a sale on rarely discounted summer sandals.

Here is a slightly smaller, less-expensive version of our top-choice air fryer. It has a lot of the same features like an easy-to-use preset panel, quiet operation, and a dishwasher-safe basket, and today it’s even cheaper when you use the on-page coupon.


At full price, we’ve called this Bluetooth speaker a great deal, and today it’s even more of a steal thanks to the on-page coupon, which knocks an additional 20 percent off. Our tech writer called it “the perfect dupe for the Beats Pill,” and loved it for its 24-hour battery life.

A favorite of content creator Yaminah Mayo, this Voluspa candle has a bright, citrusy scent perfect for summer. And because it has a burn time of 100 hours, it should last all season, too.

During Free People’s Summer Solstice sale, select styles are 20 percent off, including these rarely discounted color-blocked Birkenstocks that will go with every outfit this summer.

Get to know the dog you just adopted a little better with this DNA test kit. You can find out their exact breed mix, medical information, and even what they’ll likely look like when they’re older thanks to over 35 trait tests.

Once again, Ssense’s sale bin is fully stocked. Most items are up to 60 percent off, but we found a slightly deeper discount on this ceramic and copper French press from minimalist houseware brand Yield.

True Botanicals is having a sitewide sale. Everything is 20 percent off, but if you spend $250 or more you can get 25 percent off, and 30 percent off when you spend $400. One thing to consider putting in your cart is this face oil loved by Olivia Wilde for being nontoxic and anti-aging and for actually penetrating the skin.

And if breakouts are more your concern, Strategist beauty contributor Rio Viera-Newton says this clear version is “hydrating and nourishing without triggering any kind of acne flare-ups.”

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape.
