Editor’s note: If you’re reading this, it’s too late. Our Get Out of Town sale has ended, and all of the deals below have expired. But we’ve got more sales coverage coming later today, so stay tuned, and sign up for our newsletter to make sure you never miss a sale again.

If you’ve been dreaming of a tropical vacation or weekend getaway upstate, we’ve got discounts exclusively for readers of the Strategist on some things that will make the journey to any destination a breeze. That includes Bose’s noise-canceling headphones to catch up on The Last of Us through flight delays and long car rides, Outdoor Voices’ stretchy CloudKnit loungewear to make sitting on a plane for hours bearable, and Paravel’s packing cubes, carry-ons, and duffel bags to carry it all around. Most of these deals expire tonight (Tuesday, February 28) at 11:59 p.m. ET, so get a move on. And as always, if you want even more sales coverage, be sure to sign up for our newsletter.


Bose makes some of our favorite speakers and headphones, including the 700, a noise-canceling over-ear pair that blocks out chatter so you can enjoy a more peaceful flight or commute. We found in our testing that the 700’s leather-wrapped foam ear cups and cushioned headband sit comfortably on your head for long stretches, and that the controls are responsive and simple to operate. These headphones are good looking too. The folks over at B&H are offering the Bose 700 for just under $300, the lowest price we’ve seen since Black Friday, in both black and silver. —Jordan McMahon


Cuup is a favorite of the cool crowd for its simple-yet-sexy underwear (that’s beloved by Strategist staffers) — but they also make very excellent basics that still offer a little something. The supportive Scoop offers a sculpted silhouette, thanks to its lightweight and flexible underwire, and is comfortable enought to wear all day long. Their Highwaist panties have been described to us as both “supersensual” and comfortable, which sounds ideal for your next trip away when you’ve got limited room in your suitcase. With our exclusive discount, take 20 percent off an already discounted bundle of the Scoop bra and three pairs of the Highwaist panties with code STRAT20. (You can choose any color for the bra, and for the three-pack of underwear you’ll get Cuup’s three bestselling colors: black, sand, and fuschia.) The cost of the bundle drops to just $110 — a savings of $28 on the cost of buying all four pieces separately. Our advice: Stock up while you can. —Ambar Pardilla

Dagne Dover

While we’d never judge you for taking a tote bag on the plane, investing in a purposefully-designed carry-on bag just makes travel that much easier — not to mention a touch more glamorous. Dagne Dover’s lightweight Landon bag is one of our favorites for flying. It also comes recommended by Paper fashion editor Mario Abad, who praises its “minimalist aesthetic” and durable, soft-to-the-touch neoprene fabric. All sizes of this classic-looking bag in Core (non-seasonal) colors are 20 percent off using the code STRATEGIST20, including a mini cross-body for keeping your passport close and the extra-large weekender bag, which is just begging to be taken on an upstate trip. Abad notes that the second-largest size is perfect for stowing in overhead compartments — and it’ll fit a 16” laptop. —Katherine Gillespie


As the onset of spring travel intersects with the end of flu season and the ever-evolving Covid situation, it’s still a good idea to pack a trusty face mask when you head out of town. And whether your airplane fit is “pajamas-and-UGG-boots” or “pantsuit-and-pumps,” topping it off with an Evolvetogether mask is an unlikely hint of style. The brand makes some of our favorite disposable masks for both adults and kids; not only do they boast a stamp of approval from both medical professionals and independent product-testing agencies, they’ve been spotted on a slew of Hollywood stars, from Bella Hadid to Angelina Jolie.

Evolve Together is offering Strategist readers 25 percent off sitewide with code STRAT25, so you can stock up on multi-packs of their surgical or KN95 masks. While you’re at it, you might as well pick up a few of the brand’s other elevated daily essentials that are nice to have on-hand for travel, like a hydrating hand cream or an aluminum-free natural deodorant that, according to Strategist senior writer Liza Corsillo, smells like “Topanga canyon and fresh lemon water at the spa.” —Kitty Guo

Outdoor Voices

Suit up in a comfortable but still put-together airport outfit with Outdoor Voices’s CloudKnit collection. The lightweight sweats from the line are “beyond comfy” says stylist Linda Rodin, who practically lives in hers. Strategist editor and Outdoor Voices aficionado Maxine Builder is another fan, calling the CloudKnit pants and shirts her favorite loungewear “for any activity, indoors or out.” The material is durable as well, says MichaelAnn Cohlmia, co-founder of CBD brand WeedSport. After countless washes, her long-sleeve CloudKnit tops have never shrunk or warped, and remain “forever soft.” You can take 25 percent off anything from the collection — including sweats, shorts, shirts, hoodies, and more for either him or her — with the code STRAT25. —Arielle Avila


When we speak to frequent fliers and travelers, they almost always call out the convenience of Paravel’s fold-up totes and fold-away backpack. No wonder we’ve included the brand in our lists of the best weekend bags, best fanny packs, best duffels for travel and coolest crossbody bags. You can take 25 percent off orders over $150 sitewide, using the code STRATEGIST. That makes this as good a time as any to grab one of their (rarely discounted) tote-and-carry-on travel sets, or add a monogrammed bag and set of packing cubes to your cart. —Rachael Griffiths

Whether your travel plans include sitting on a beach, enjoying an après cocktail, or just walking around a lot, you’ll want a good sunscreen to keep your skin protected. This one, from Tula — maker of some of our favorite makeup remover, face scrub, and moisturizer — boasts reef-safe SPF 30 and a lightweight formula that adds a hint of glow. It’s also small enough to fit in your carry-on, says travel blogger Oyin Edogi. Use the code STRAT20 to take 20 percent off. —Sam Daly
