It’s a brand-new month, and a fresh crop of very good sales have sprung up overnight. Scroll on to see what we dug up, including discounted Halloween costumes, a stylish throw blanket, and your new favorite yoga pants.

Saks Fifth Avenue’s Friends and Family sale ends tonight, but there’s a bunch of new arrivals, including this classic black cotton turtleneck from Vince.

Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale — which is basically Black Friday and Prime Day rolled into one — will be next Tuesday, October 11, and Wednesday, October 12. There are a lot of early deals already available to the public, including the Kindle Paperwhite, which is 29 percent off. You can find more of our picks of already available sales from the event here.

Over at Hanna Andersson, you can take up to 50 percent off Halloween-themed clothing for kids of all ages — this pink dress with black cats can definitely be worn well past October 31.

If you’d rather lean into the holiday, here’s a half-off mermaid costume that’s sure to become a playroom staple.

There are even not-so-spooky tees for adults, ideal for those chaperoning trick-or-treaters.

Here’s a nice-looking pet carrier that’s a great pick for small pets. It has two points of entry (helpful for wrigglers), as well as a crossbody strap and a trolley sleeve to keep your cat or dog secure on trips to the vet or back home for the holidays.

This cheap but expensive-looking geometric blanket will add some brightness to your couch as the days get shorter.

If you’re not ready to go all in on some XT-6s with itd quick lacing system, here are some more standard-looking lace-up Salomons that fit both men and women. (A men’s size 4 is about a women’s 6.)

If you’re not into the return of low-rise jeans and baby tees but are still feeling nostalgic for 2009, we suggest these stretchy culottes from sustainable fashion brand Amour Vert.


If you’ve yet to take the plunge into the fitness-tracking scene, consider this smartwatch from one of our favorite brands. It has up to seven days of battery life, so you can focus on training for your next half-marathon instead of charging.

Sommelier Eric Tschudi says the Coravin is great “for home drinkers (or for the husbands of pregnant wives who can’t drink) who want to enjoy a nice bottle of wine but don’t want to commit to drinking a whole bottle.” At $89, it would make a great hostess gift for someone you really like.

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