Labor Day is just a week away, and the internet’s sales bins are stocked accordingly. We found lots of deals on late-summer items — like an editor-approved tank top and skin-soothing face masks — plus plenty of early-fall finds, including cozy sweaters and joggers.

Strategist tech writer Jordan Bowman named these “unexpectedly comfortable noise-canceling headphones” the best wireless headphones for shoppers on a budget — and right now, they’re even more affordable than usual.

These single-serving bags of kettle corn are a great snack to toss in kids’ lunch boxes or in your work bag to help you get through that 3 p.m. slump.

For a well-reviewed pressure cooker at a fraction of the price, try this good-as-new renewed Ninja air fryer–pressure cooker combo. Amazon reviewers say it is a “net win in counter space.”

One of the many Labor Day sales already in progress, Girlfriend Collective is taking up to 30 percent off its loungewear and exercise clothes. That includes these cozy fall-ready joggers — on sale in green, gray, lavender, brown, and the teal color pictured.

Beauty writer Rio Viera-Newton first started using KNC Beauty products to help her skin recover from summer damage. This set of face masks helps soothe skin that’s tight from a day in front of the AC or skin that’s red and blotchy from wearing face masks in the heat.

Newton also loves KNC’s lip balm, “a purse staple that I’ve been relying on for lip care on the go.”

Universal Standard’s end-of-summer sale is live. This boxy, moisture-wicking button-up, also available in blue, is an ideal back-to-office staple.

This tank is a WFH favorite of former Strategist writer Hilary Reid, but it’s nice enough to wear out and about, too. It’s on sale in just about every color of the rainbow.

If you’re eager to pull out the fall wardrobe, this wear-anywhere wool sweater would make a warm addition. Like the tank above, it’s on sale in a slew of cozy colors.

Whether for a last-minute summer trip or an upcoming fall vacation, here’s a very well-reviewed suitcase from cool-person-approved brand Calpak. If you want one you’ll have no trouble spotting on the luggage belt, get it in red, gold, or pink.

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.
