There are a lot of limited-time-only sales in today’s post, so don’t dillydally. That includes a rarely-on-sale Dyson flat iron and a family-size air fryer until midnight tonight at Best Buy. I also took a deeper dive into Shopbop’s sale, in which there’s a 20 percent discount on hundreds of items (including already-on-sale picks).

It wasn’t so long ago that you couldn’t find Dyson’s hair tools in stock, let alone on sale, so don’t dillydally if you want the Corrale flat iron — which we crowned the best cordless option — for just $300.

In another excellent Best Buy deal, here’s a family-size air fryer that’s nearly half off. It goes up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, has an auto-shutoff feature, and comes with five types of cooking racks (all of which are dishwasher safe).

Our best memory-foam pillow for neck pain is 31 percent off. It features two different-size bolsters that are designed to nestle under your neck and provide much-needed support.

Kindle Scribe

Amazon announced yesterday that its Prime Big Deal Days — a.k.a. October Prime Day — will take place in less than a month, and I was surprised to see that our best Kindle for notetakers is already on sale. Our tech writer enjoys how the Kindle Scribe allows him to “drop a sticky note with handwritten text” right over any paragraph or sentence.

Here’s a megapack of rechargeable AA batteries you’ll want once it’s time to light up all your Halloween decorations.

Actually, buying a fuzzy throw does make fall weather come faster.

My search for the perfect tiered midi skirt for fall has been fruitless so far, but I did stumble across this lovely celestial-themed option for kids.

New arrivals are 20 percent off at Shopbop until tomorrow night with the code FALL20. Here’s a three-pack of VPL-proof undies from Calvin Klein.

The sale applies to already-on-sale items as well, making these oversize sunglasses just $13.

Highly covetable clogs from Swedish Hasbeens with a low heel that’s not too hard to tromp around in.

There are some nice beauty items in the mix, too, like Olaplex No. 4. It’s especially good for chemically processed hair and adds shine and reduces frizz over time.

Athleta Fairway Dress

Athleta’s Fairway tennis dress looks rather traditional, but you could definitely get away with wearing it off the court, too.
