Days of Deals 2021: All the exclusives to shop
Every day, CNN Underscored strives to bring you a smattering of the best deals to shop on the internet, from discounted tech to home goods to fashion — not to mention our 24/7 coverage of the biggest days in shopping, like Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday.
But now, instead of hunting down deals, we’re creating them ourselves. Our savings-savvy team has collaborated with some of our favorite brands in order to bring our ideal deals wishlist into being for a limited time. Introducing: CNN Underscored’s Days of Deals, a two-day event featuring savings on 35 brands and products that we can’t get enough of, exclusively for Underscored readers. The deals will be available from Aug. 16 through Aug. 17 only.
Best of all, in many cases, these exclusive offers are the best you’ll find on the web right now — indeed, some are the best prices ever for these coveted items. We’re talking 15% off goods like super soft linen sheets from Brooklinen, 20% savings on our favorite coffee subscription service from Blue Bottle Coffee and 20% off the Instagram-famous Always Pan.
These deals are so exciting, in fact, that there’s no telling how long each of these marked-down products will stay in stock, so we’d recommend checking out ASAP to lock in your special savings. And if you want to make sure that you never miss another CNN Underscored find, sign up for desktop and mobile app notifications, our newsletter and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TikTok — we promise to raise your shopping IQ (and will never spam you).

For that reason, there are quite a few Logitech products we’ve tried and still rave about. For starters, the Logitech G915 TKL is at the top of our list when it comes to the best mechanical keyboards, and the Logitech Ergo K860 is also our pick for best ergonomic keyboard overall.

Offer: Use code CNN400 to take $150 off The Mirror, plus free shipping and installation (a $400 value).
Why we love it: We tried The Mirror for ourselves during the pandemic and found it to be a worthwhile investment for those looking to stay in shape without leaving the house. It’s especially ideal for those who love studio classes — and though it’s not cheap at $39 per month for a subscription, the seemingly infinite number of workouts available make it feel worthwhile.

Onsen Bath Towels
Offer: Save 20% sitewide when you use code CNN20.
Why we love it: When we tried this wave-making, Japanese-inspired brand for ourselves, we dubbed the signature Onsen bath towel to be not only “crazy absorbent” but also ultra quick-drying — no more soaked towels taking on a musty odor for hours on end on the bathroom floor.
What you should buy: You can opt to pick up just one (or a few) bath towels or bath sheets — in a range of calming hues to boot — or really commit to the waffle lifestyle with a Complete Set, which includes hand and face towels too.

Our Place Always Pan
Offer: Use code CNNDOD20 at checkout to take 20% off the Instagram-famous Always Pan.
Why we love it: The Always Pan was designed to combine eight pieces of cookware into one attractive pan: It’s a fry pan, saute pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, non-stick pan, spatula and spoon rest all in one. In addition to the pan itself (which is made with a non-toxic, nonstick ceramic coating that’s free of potentially toxic materials and features two handy pour spouts), you’ll also be getting the included modular lid, a steamer basket and nesting beachwood spatula that fits perfectly on a peg built-into the handle.

What you should buy: The most standout feature of the Re:Play Brief has to be its cute (and cooling!) mesh panel in the front. Otherwise, the brief is constructed from breathable cotton and comes in a range of playful, bold colors like Sapphire and Juice.

Paravel Aviator Carry-On and The Weekender
Why we love it: Not only are Paravel’s luggage pieces made from recycled materials, they feature an internal compression system that helps you pack more in smaller spaces. You can also feel good about ordering an item from Paravel, as all shipping methods are carbon-neutral.

Offer: You’ll receive 25% off sitewide when you use the code CNN25.
Why we love it: While the brand’s sheets sets and other linens can get expensive depending on what type of material you opt for, we found all products to be worth the price in our testing. For example, we loved how crisp and cooling the Lyric Percale Sheets were for the summer, and enjoyed the heavier, silky Soprano Sateen Sheets for winter.
What you should buy: The Soprano Sateen Sheet Set is buttery soft and durable, while the Lyric Percale Sheet Set will get softer the more you use it.

Offer: CNN Underscored readers can take $50 off the stainless steel version of the Proclamation Duo cookware set with code CNN50.

Offer: When you buy a Theragun PRO, you’ll automatically get a free Wave Solo added to your cart at checkout. All you have to do is enter the code CNNUNDERSCORED before you make your purchase, and the $79 value is yours for free.
Why we love it: If you’re not familiar with the Wave Solo, it’s one of the newer additions to Therabody’s foam-rolling line to further help with muscle recovery. We tested it back in April and loved how small it was, giving us the ability to roll out sore wrists throughout the workday. If you’re chained to a desk for most of the week, this is definitely a nice little massager to have on hand.
Read more about this Theragun offer here.
Offer: Take $15 off all orders of $75 or more when you use the code CNNXTL.
Why we love it: When we tried the best-selling 24/7 Classic T-Shirt Bra which has more than 48,000 positive reviews, we also became believers in ThirdLove’s ability to make some of the most comfortable underwear on the market; the online quiz truly helps you find the perfect fit and the T-Shirt bra itself felt supportive without being restrictive.
What you should buy: The 24/7 Classics Set will get you both the beloved T-Shirt Bra and the no-show comfort stretch thong.
Read more about this Thirdlove offer here.

Why we love it: When we tried the brand out, we thought it was a total game changer, making the daily go more of a spa experience. The minimal design with a range of pastel, metallic or bamboo color options also makes for a cute, albeit unconventional, bathroom accessory. Who knew your toilet could be so stylish?
What you should buy: If you’re already sold on the bidet experience, splurge on the Spa 3.0. It has everything you love about the Classic, with the addition of a second knob to adjust the temperature of the water.
