Note: If you’re reading this, it’s too late. Our third Two-Day Sale has ended, and all of the deals have expired. But our dedication to finding and sharing the best sales on the internet hasn’t stopped. Sign up for our newsletter to get the best deals sent to your inbox, and make sure you never miss another Two-Day Sale again.

Whether it’s Cyber Monday, Amazon Prime Day, or just a regular Friday, we pride ourselves on our ability to sniff out the best deals from the depths of the internet’s sale bins. But for the third year in a row, we’ve done some deal-making of our own. Welcome to the second day of the Strategist’s Two-Day (Actually Good) Sale.

We’ve put together over 50 deals exclusively for readers of the Strategist on some of our most-stood-behind products. And true to the event’s name, they’re available at some of the best prices we’ve ever seen — in some cases, the best prices they’ve ever been. We’re taking up to 70 percent off cult beauty products, highly giftable fitness gear (which would make excellent Mother’s Day gifts), furniture and décor for every room, and a few reader favorites from last year’s event.

All of the sale’s deals are now live, and you can continue shopping them until 11:59 p.m. ET tonight, Wednesday, April 27. But if you missed a deal or just want to stay on top of our future sales coverage, sign up for our newsletter here so you won’t miss a thing.

Quick-Drying Japanese Bath Towels for Musty Bathrooms

Onsen’s Japanese-style bath towels are a favorite of our deals writer Leah Muncy, who says their quick-drying waffle weave is more durable, absorbent, and shrink-resistant than other waffle towels she has tried. And because they dry in about half the time of a regular bath towel, they’re excellent for those with musty bathrooms. Onsen’s offerings hardly ever go on sale, but Strategist readers can take 25 percent off the Onsen Bath Towel Set (in any color) today — the deepest discount we’ve seen this year — with code ONSEN25.

Our Favorite Cannabis Infuser — at Its Lowest Price Ever


The Levo II took the top spot in our best-cannabis-infusers story, with many experts noting its chic look and simple-to-use design. And while the Levo is specifically meant to make cannabis-infused oils for baking or cooking projects, you can also experiment with non-cannabis botanical infusions. With code STRATEGIST, the gadget is on sale for 26 percent off, the cheapest it has ever been — and it’s part of an exclusive bundle that includes an oil sprayer, a set of two gummy molds, and an herb block tray, so you can start infusing as soon as the package arrives. (It also comes with a cookbook to help you figure out how to use it.)

A Three-Pack of Brightly Colored Cutting Boards Made From Recycled Kitchen Plastic

We love Material Kitchen’s knife, whisk, stainless-steel skillet, and yes, cutting boards (which have such a cult following they frequently sell out in certain colors). The boards are made from recycled scraps of kitchen plastic, making them good for the environment and lighter-weight than a lot of their wooden counterparts. They come in five bright but matte colors, and when you bundle three of them together, Material gives you a discounted price that shows up when you add to cart. Even better, with code STRATEGIST, you’ll get an additional 20 percent off.

The Nail Polish That Lasts So Long “It’s Kind of Freaky”

Beloved by several New York staffers, Olive & June’s nail polish is nontoxic, quick to dry, and ridiculously long-lasting. That’s because it’s formulated with a higher concentration of resin, making it more durable and chip-resistant than most polishes on the market. “My nails were shiny, bright, and chip-free for over seven days,” wrote the Cut’s former senior writer Kathleen Hou after testing it back in 2019. “The manicure lasted so long that I found myself wishing the polish would let go of its Tracy Flick–like determination and quit already.” Olive & June hardly ever offers sales (its last was in November, in fact), but today only, Strategist readers can take 30 percent off select nail-polish and press-on kits with code STRATEGIST30. That includes the Mani System, the Pedi system, the Complete System, the Press-On Mani System, and the travel-friendly Mani Weekender. Shipping is free on orders over $45.

An Ergonomic WFH Upgrade That’s 15 Percent Off

Branch is the maker of one of our favorite ergonomic desk chairs, which chiropractor and licensed acupuncturist Dr. Jasmine Bhoola describes as “comfortable and completely customizable.” Its Daily Chair is 15 percent off today only with the code NYMAG15, its best deal ever. The rolling desk chair comes with lumbar support, adjustable armrests, and a medium-firm cushion that holds up to hours spent working from home. The chair comes in three colors, including sky blue and a greenish beige, and is even ecofriendly — it’s made from 70 percent recycled materials, and is 96 percent recyclable post-use.

A Versatile Standing Desk for Working From Home

From $599

With the great work-from-home revolution well established, an adjustable sit-to-stand desk may be just what your home office (or WFH corner) ordered. Dan Seifert, deputy editor of the Verge, says the Jarvis Standing desk from Fully “has served me well for about four years now.” It’s a comfortable, stable, easy-to-adjust desk that Seifert and his Verge colleagues highly recommend. By using the code STRATEGIST15, you can get any desk in the Jarvis line for 15 percent off. Fully is also extending the 15 percent discount to your entire order with the purchase of a Jarvis desk, the best deal the brand has offered this year.

A Nonalcoholic Spirit for Mixing Up Mood-Lifting Mocktails

In our guide to creating an alcohol-free home bar, multiple experts recommended this sober-friendly spirit loaded with adaptogens and nootropics. Among them was Jeremy Mustakas, director of restaurants for ABC, who calls the High Rhode flavor a “must-have,” with botanicals like citrus and hibiscus. (​​Mustakas loves his mixed with black-currant juice and lime.) You can order up to three bottles of High Rhode at 20 percent off using our exclusive code: KINSTRATEGIST.
