Best Deal Overall

1. Abercrombie & Fitch Sloane Tailored Pants

Abercrombie & Fitch

Given that they've earned more than 1,000 rave reviews, we can see why everyone is rushing to buy these pleated pants for as low as $37 with code YPBAF (depending on the color). The fabric is thick enough to wear all winter long, according to happy buyers, plus they have an ultra-high rise fit and partially elasticized waist, so they should keep you feeling comfy while looking polished at the office and beyond. Here's why one shopper loves them more than her Mason pants from Reformation: "These are so comfortable, stylish and great quality. [They] can be dressed up or down. I plan on buying them in different colors." Honestly, same.

Editors' Pick

2. SolaWave 4-in-1 Facial Wand


This Amazon lightning deal, which brings this facial wand to as low as $47 (!) won't last long, so we'll cut to the chase: This celeb-approved device vibrates, warms and emits red light (which studies suggest has many skincare benefits) in order to help smooth and brighten skin, as well as blur fine lines and wrinkles. PureWow Commerce Editor Olivia Dubyak actually gave it a whirl, and besides making her skin glowy AF, it helped brighten her dark circles in just a few weeks. No, we're not kidding, so, if you don't already own one, you know what to do.

Best Ballet Flats Deal

3. Birdies Leather Crane Ballet Flats


If you've fallen back in love with ballet flats, first of all—same. Second of all, you'll definitely want to add these square-toed beauties to your cart. They're constructed from stunning metallic Napa leather, which doesn't just look good, but also feels as soft and smooth as butter, per shoppers. Most importantly, though, they boast a quilted soft bounce insole for extra comfort and support. "[They're the] most comfortable flats I have ever owned," one reviewer raves. "[The] quilted, fluffy cushion footbed makes it feel like you're walking on air. These are the only ones I wear to work now!" Indeed, they're perfect for the office commute, but they'll look just as good for any special occasion you've got coming up (say, Valentine's Day date night?).

Best Leggings Deal

4. lululemon Align Pants


New year, fit you? Well, you'll need some reliable leggings to wear during all your workouts, and if there's any type we *highly* recommend stocking up on, it's these Align pants (yes, the ones that consistently go viral on TikTok). Now, we can talk about how they're designed to hug every curve and wick away sweat so you can stay cool and comfortable during even the most intense workouts, but you'll really just fall in love with how soft they are. That's actually one of the reasons commerce editor Dubyak is obsessed with them, though she also loves that they make her feel "fully supported through Pilates workouts" and even stretched along with her body in the early days of her pregnancy. Now that they're marked down for under $60, there's no better time to snag a pair (or three!).

Best Pet Deal

5. Litter-Robot 3 Connect Warranty Bundle


Want to stop scooping your cat's messes for good? Let us put you on to the Litter-Robot, a game-changing automatic self-cleaning litter box. It has unique litter-sifting technology that rotates and drops cat poop into a waste bin at the bottom of the machine, so you never have to scoop or rake again. Just dump the bag (it will alert you when to do this) and the optional OdorTrap system reduces and neutralizes odors while providing a clean bed of litter each time your cat does their business. While we’ve personally tried Whisker’s Litter-Robot 4 and were very impressed with the real-time notifications it sent us through the app, the deal on this Litter-Robot 3 Connect warranty bundle, which includes the device plus a three-year protection plan, is not to be missed.

Best Pajamas Deal

6. Nordstrom Brushed Hacci Pajamas


Whether or not you're in the market for new pajamas, you should know that this set hits the sweet spot between cozy, warm and lightweight. One reviewer shares, "These are the coziest and most comfortable nightwear that I own. What I love the most is that I twist and turn in my sleep, and these PJs allow that better than flannel." Instead, they're made of a brushed hacci knit fabric comprised of rayon, polyester and spandex, which shoppers say is breathable enough for hot sleepers. Bottom line: If there are any PJs you should buy to last you through the winter (and then some), you're looking at 'em.

Best Luggage Deal

7. Away The Original Medium Luggage


Planning a winter vacay or spring break adventure? You'll need a new suitcase for that. Thanks to PureWow Wellness Director Sarah Stiefvater's review of Away's Bigger Carry-On, we're confident that the brand's luggage stands up to the test of time and the rigor of travel. So we do not doubt that this Medium luggage, which should comfortably fit one to two weeks' worth of clothing, will come in handy for all the trips you have planned this year. Especially since it's got a TSA-approved combination lock for extra security, 360-degree spinner wheels for a smooth ride and an interior compression system for ultra-organized packing. So, really, the durable and lightweight polycarbonate hard shell and hidden laundry bag are just the cherries on top.

It's no secret that we're fans of this concealer, so there's no question whether we're hopping on this deal, which scores us a *super-sized* version of the product, plus a sponge to help blend it in like a dream. If you're new to the product, PureWow's Senior Food Editor, Katherine O'Connor, says it's the most blendable concealer she's ever tried, adding that "it looks like real skin...not like I’m hiding something with makeup. That, coupled with the buildable coverage, has me like, ‘Zit? What zit?’” More specifically, it's formulated with shea butter, mango butter and licorice root, which is designed to work together to do more than just brighten the appearance of dark circles. It is also meant to help retain skin elasticity as well as moisturize and condition. Most impressively, it promises up to *16* hours of "flawless wear" without creasing or caking up, according to the brand. What more can you ask for?

Best Sneakers Deal

9. Nike Air Max Excee Sneakers


We must admit we've been eyeing these sneakers since last year. Now that they're on sale, we couldn't resist adding them to our collection of kicks that will look good with just about anything. And while their metallic details and oversized proportions make them super fashionable, other features, like their foam midsole and rubber outsole, contribute to their durability and all-around comfort. Trendy, cool and comfy—sign us up!

Best Coffee Maker Deal

10. Nespresso Vertuo Next Coffee Maker


This sleek coffee maker will kick your Keurig's butt. Sorry, not sorry, but it doesn't just look good, it also makes quality coffee and espressos you'll actually look forward to getting out of bed for. The secret is its barcode-reading technology, which ensures each coffee capsule rotates at the perfect speed to get you your desired strength and size. And lest we forget the rich layer of crema that it delivers on top, so your cup will look like it came straight from Starbucks. And, guys, this deal doesn't just get you the coffee maker; you'll also get an Aeroccino3 milk frother to take your drink to the next level, as well as a removable used-capsule container (which conveniently stores all your empty pods), a coffee welcome kit with 12 capsules to get you started *and* a $50 Nespresso voucher so you can buy even more capsules!
