9 Things on Sale You’ll Actually Want to Buy: From Mr. Coffee to Fjällräven

After a holiday weekend filled with sales, it was a pleasant surprise to log on this morning and find a bunch of even better discounts than were being offered yesterday. Plenty of those are still time-limited, however: Urban Outfitters is offering 50 percent off a robust selection of favorites only until tomorrow, and Ulta’s today-only deal is a Strategist-loved serum to achieve glowy skin even in the dead of winter.


With all the gas-stove drama of the past few weeks, it wouldn’t hurt to add an asthma-alleviating air purifier to your home. This Coway model has helped me drastically reduce dust, dander, and germs in my bedroom since 2019. (I have it in the white, which is on sale for $166.)

Burr grinders are baristas’ favorite type of grinder, because they precisely mill beans into a more uniform blend, and they’re typically more expensive. But this hefty Mr. Coffee model—which has 18 grind settings and the capacity for half a pound of coffee beans—is currently less than $50.

We rarely find Peach & Lily on sale, so if you’ve been wanting to try its cult-y serum (which former Strategist writer Lori Keong says made her skin “impossibly dewy, plump, and less red all at once”), now’s a very good time.

Almost 600 products are half off at Urban Outfitters just for today, like this textured striped polo in handsome chocolate brown …

… And this practical plant mister that’s cute enough to leave next to the pot.

You very rarely see Fjällräven bags this cheap — and I love this fun mustard colorway.

Candle influencer Kudzi Chikumbu—known on the internet as @sircandleman—says P.F. Candle Co.’s products are noticeably high-quality for the price. Canyon Hideaway is one of the most appropriate for winter, with notes of smoked juniper, leather, ginger root, and clove leaf.

Also at Urban: Already-on-sale products are an extra 40 percent off with no discount code needed. Finding your size can be a little tricky — lots of apparel is only available in a limited range — but these ’90s-inspired baggy Levi’s jeans are still available in sizes 26 through 32.

For even more double-discounted denim, on-sale styles at J.Crew are an extra 60 percent off with the code SALETIME (through January 23.)

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