In this end-of-week sweep of the internet’s sales bins, we found discounts on one of our favorite electric toothbrushes, the Goldilocks of camping chairs, and a beauty editor-favorite set of shower products. (As always, if you want even more deals sent straight to your inbox, sign up for our email newsletter.)

To start things off, here’s a great deal on one of our favorite electric toothbrushes. It comes recommended by three dentists, who praise its larger brush head (as compared to Oral-B), soft bristles, timer, and pressure sensor. Plus it’s one of just two Sonicare brushes accepted by the American Dental Association.

Cuisinart AirFryer Toaster Oven
From $199
From $199

And here’s $100 off the very same air fryer-slash-toaster oven that made one of our writers feel “like Julia Child” as she fed her family throughout the quarantine.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends this weekend, so if you’ve had your eye on anything, you should shop it now — especially since lots of colors and sizes are going out of stock. But for now, these fluffy Uggs are still available in sizes 5 through 12.

In our guide to the 13 best bras, we praised True & Co.’s seamless designs as well as their pleasing fabric, which Strategist contributor Brodie Lancaster says is “softer than any other bra material I’ve encountered.”

Also included in the sale are these office-ready Steve Madden mules …

… and this everything-you-need shower set from Nécessaire, which includes the same body wash our beauty columnist called “shockingly eczema-friendly.”

When it comes to the car-seat market, experts tell us Nuna is a significant player (and that their fans are “die-hard”). Now $100 cheaper, this particular seat is designed to keep little ones comfortable from birth through toddlerhood and has a harness that can be adjusted with one hand.

We’ve written a lot about the jeans from Good American (Khloé Kardashian’s size-inclusive denim brand), and their classic straight jean is now 25 percent off in sizes 00 through 24.

Part of REI’s just-launched Big Bike Sale, this highly breathable, easily-visible, and visor-integrating helmet will be perfect for your next few months of riding Citi Bikes.

J.Crew’s had a consistently good sale on already-discounted pieces, but today, we noticed that the deal also applies to new arrivals — like this cozy-yet-still-elegant beach sweater — with code SHOPNOW.

J. Crew makes our best overall Oxford shirt, which inclines us to believe this lighter linen variation would be a smart summer pickup. “They’re not disposable-feeling, but they don’t feel precious, either,” rug dealer Mikael Kennedy says of his many J. Crew button-downs, adding that he even got married in one that he bought on sale for $30.

Dress it up for your next garden wedding reception or down for date night.

Next month heralds the start of moving season once again. Whether or not you’ll be picking up a new set of keys, these woven storage boxes would serve as handsome storage in any kitchen, living room, bathroom, or bedroom.

Converse’s Chuck 70 line looks just like their classic range — except the materials used are a little better, and the insole is considerably plusher.

Also at Shopbop, we spotted these classic black work pants for your inevitable return to the office. Because they’re made by Spanx (with no buttons or zippers), they’ll still feel as comfortable as your go-to joggers.

We previously called this the Goldilocks of camping chairs, describing it as “not too big so as to be a burden to carry around, but not so small that you feel unsupported while sitting in it.” Snag it for your next trip while it’s still 20 percent off.

And while you might not be thinking about winter quite yet, come January, you’ll be glad you bought this nearly half-off Patagonia puffer early.

Finally, here’s more than 20 percent off the same steamer Uma Thurman’s stylist swears by and which our tester said gave her own clothes a “dry-cleaner-quality finish every time.”

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.
