Today’s mishmash of deals and steals is chock-full of excellent items to outfit your kitchen, from a Vitamix blender that makes perfect smoothies every time to a TikTok-famous ice cream–maker. Our Place is also having a sitewide sale, making it an ideal time to pick up the popular Always Pan or some of the brand’s equally attractive dishware. There won’t be a regular sales post tomorrow, but that’s because we’ll have something much better happening: Our annual Strategist Two-Day (Actually Good) Sale begins at 9 a.m. ET on April 26, so set your alarms and enter our sweepstakes for a chance to win some of the items that will be part of the sale.

I can’t escape the barrage of TikToks and Instagram Reels raving about this Ninja ice cream–maker. If you’ve also been curious to see what all the fuss is about, now is your chance to snag it for up to $70 off.

And for the smoothie fans, one of our favorite blenders for making smoothies is $170 off today. According to The First Mess cookbook author and blogger Laura Wright, the Vitamix 5200 creates the optimal thick and creamy smoothie texture she is after (even after years of use).

Our favorite self-tanner is on sale — but only until midnight. Spray-tan stylist Cait Cassagne assures us that it doesn’t “have that yuck self-tan smell,” coming out as a foam with “beautiful undertones” that look nice on a wide range of skin tones.


Let your little one join in on your morning routine with this puppy-shaped coffee machine. Your budding barista can use the toy to dispense drink pods and add toppings, serving them all with a side of doughnuts.

A nice-looking, surprisingly affordable watch that would make a good graduation or Mother’s Day gift.

For basically all projects around the house, you can pick up this durable, dependable, and expert-recommended cordless drill. Its batteries work across its platform of tools, so if you are just starting to build your toolbox, the 20-volt batteries will slot into other DeWalt tools too.

Our pick for the best midrange, all-in-one car seat is 20 percent off at both Amazon and Target. It has six recline options and four configurations that grow with your child: a rear-facing harness seat, forward-facing harness seat, high-back booster, and a backless booster.

If you’ve got a kiddo who tends to scribble anywhere within arm’s reach, put up this peel-and-stick poster so they can draw on the wall to their heart’s content.

Our Place is having a spring sale, and absolutely everything is up to 25 percent off, including the highly coveted Always Pan. “The weight, the shape, the size, the finish are all excellent,” says Lani Halliday, founder and owner of Brutus Bakeshop, and the “proportions are such that it really works for so many things.”

The brand’s durable porcelain plates stack well for easy storage and come in four neutral shades as well as a fun rhubarb color from a collaboration with Selena Gomez.

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.
