The sales are sales-ing today, and we’ve unearthed some real (discounted) gems from several of our all-time favorite brands. Below, we’ve found some great deals for kitting out your back-to-the-office wardrobe, a cozy rug for dipping temps, and a great gaming headset.

We named this PC- and PlayStation-compatible gaming headset one of the very best for its balanced sound quality, 30-hour battery life, and stretchy fit. In fact, Cameron Faulkner at our sister site the Verge notes that this headset can expand wider than the size of most heads and still retain its fit, which is a good sign that it’ll last.

You read that right: Dyson, now $100 off. The company’s vacuums have a reputation for being engineering marvels, and this model is no different, with whole-machine filtration that captures pet dander and fine dust for those of us with terrible seasonal allergies.

Normally, you’d have to spend a pretty penny to get “a high-performing enameled cast-iron Dutch oven that has a long legacy and will still look great on your stove,” as Strategist editor Maxine Builder once put it. But today, the classic pot is 34 percent off in a variety of punchy colors (excluding green).

Lots of sale styles at Madewell are an extra 50 percent off with code SALEONSALE. In our complete guide to shopping the brand, celebrity stylist Samantha Brown says she swears by their signature vintage jeans, which fit “just about anyone” with ample sizing in petite, standard, and tall.

Now’s your chance to order super-discounted summer stuff for next year — or, if you live in a constantly hot climate like me, to wear well into October. These affordable, go-with-everything black sandals are just $35.

Today’s the final day of Overstock’s Labor Day clearance sale, which means it’s also your last chance to pick up this soft, Scandi-inspired rug for as low as $32 for a two-by-four-foot runner. (Our experts name-checked Safavieh in another rug story.) Free shipping on everything sweetens the deal.

Anker makes some of our favorite products for powering up your devices on the go. If you won’t be upgrading to the iPhone 14 just yet, snag this iPhone 13 charger with a six-foot cord — that can boost your battery up to 50 percent in under half an hour — for 33 percent off.

For college students, anyone who just moved, or someone who’s prone to drinking (and spilling) coffee in bed, this machine-washable mattress protector — which we named our best overall pick — is now 30 percent off with the on-page coupon. It’s also one of our most popular products: Since 2019, readers have bought nearly 20,000 of them.

Everything at Lisa Says Gah is 20 precent off through this weekend with code FALL20. This insulated brown-bag alternative, which appears in our roundup of the best lunch boxes, is a great back-to-the-office upgrade. “I have gotten a lot of compliments from friends,” writes Strategist senior writer Liza Corsillo. “Because of that and how functional and lightweight it is, I would be very excited to carry my lunch to work in it every day.”

This pair of penny loafers from Vagabond, which makes one of our favorite loafers for women, is also part of LSG’s fall sale. Former Strategist writer Chloe Anello recommends them for their chunky sole and exposed stitching.

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.
