If this weather has you wanting to strut around town in a new, fluttery sundress or pack up for summer trips ahead, then we’re right there with you. In fact, you’re in luck, because we’ve used our online-shopping superpowers as e-commerce writers and editors to pull together the best sales right now that will spring you into the warmer weeks ahead with your best sandal-adorned foot forward. 

We’re ready to jumpstart this season with 50% off Aerie swimsuits and summer-ready denim shorts from Nordstrom. If you have some fun travels coming up, you’ll need to upgrade your luggage with these superb carry-ons PEOPLE Tested that are seeing some rare sales. Or if you’re foregoing trips in order to make small upgrades to your home, then you’ll be happy to know that one of our favorite Shark robot vacuums is a whole $200 off.

Believe it or not, this is only a taste of the delicious deals that you’ll find below. Read on to get the scoop on the best deals that the internet has to offer this weekend, according to shopping experts.

Get Summer-Ready with these Under-$100 Picks from Nordstrom

We love a Nordstrom sale, and we’ve found several less than $100 pieces that your closet simply needs as the weather warms, like these Open Edit braided sandals (that start at $22!) and Good American Good Legs Cigarette Jeans (one of our favorite denim brands) for 40 percent off. We’re also eyeing these 54 percent off Wash Lab denim shorts and romantic organza midi dress that’s simply begging to be worn to a summer wedding or sunny, rooftop lunch (and it’s up to 50 percent off).

Shop Celeb-Spotted Birkenstocks for $80

If celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Gwenyth Paltrow are dedicated fans of Birkenstocks, then you know that we are, too. We’ve spotted over a hundred styles of these popular sandals on sale at the low-key luxury retailer Ruelala, which requires only a quick (and free!) sign-up with your email address to unlock their exclusive (and sizable) discounts. Styles like the sage green Arizona Birkibuc Birko-Flor Narrow Sandal are available starting at just $80, while classics like black leather slides are going for $100. But act fast, because these ever-popular sandals are going to be flying off the shelves at these prices.

Everyone loves a good Amazon fashion purchase, but what makes it even better is when it’s under $50 — and luckily for you, we’ve found a bevy of dresses that will fit perfectly in your budget and your new spring wardrobe. This one-shoulder maxi dress is a garden party dream and comes in 41 colors (no, that’s not a typo) to best fit your upcoming events. (And did we mention it’s only $42 right now?) 

We’re also falling for this romantic tie-bow sundress, which is available in 32 colors and prints and features an even prettier price tag of just $48. And if you just can’t find that perfect dress to wear to your friend’s baby shower or next weekend’s brunch, then we’ve got you covered with this 25 percent off wrap maxi, which, you guessed it, also comes in more than 30 fun hues. We’re so in love with the large selection of under-$50 dresses at Amazon, one of our editors even made a TikTok about it.

As much as we love spring clothes, we also have to face the reality of spring cleaning, which was just made far more enjoyable thanks to this $200 off Shark AI Ultra 2-in-1 Robot Self-Empty XL vacuum. This smart vacuum was one of our favorite robot vacuums of 2023 due to its excellent navigation skills, spot-cleaning efficiency, and self-emptying feature, serving as a great investment when it’s full price (but an even better one when it’s on sale). Just remember to use the code ROBOT200 at checkout to reap the rewards of your discount.
