Where to find the most in-demand and discounted sale items in Canada.

Summer sales are here and the deals are steep. We've rounded up spring fashion pieces, beauty products, kitchen appliances and even a super steal on Xbox consoles available for a limited time.

We choose based on price, quality, practicality and availability in Canada. As with most sale items, there's limited stock and sizing.

Cuisinart ice cream maker

It’s the season to scream for ice cream. This Cuisinart ICE-79C machine can whip up ice cream, gelato and sorbet in custom flavours in just 20 minutes (using a pre-set timer). The finished consistency is firm enough to make a sundae, but soft enough to eat straight away on a cone or in a cup. $130 at Amazon.

Outdoor rugs Simons

Simon has a few outdoor rugs on sale (perfect for covering up a deck that needs some TLC). This bright geometric print is giving Missoni dupe vibes and can be wiped down with a damp cloth. $14.99 at Simons.

Crochet straw hat

The sun has to come out eventually, right? When it does, this crochet straw hat has a wide brim and structured crown for a shape that is a mix of panama, pork pie and bucket hat styles. $80 at Banana Republic.

Tear drop essential oil diffuser

This tear-drop shaped essential oil diffuser is so discounted that we had to double check the price — yes it’s $14 (discounted from $69.50) and is sure to be snapped up quickly. Includes lavender oil, $14 at Indigo.

Makeup Forever

Makeup Forever’s Watertone Skin-perfecting Tint Foundation is super high quality and a favourite of makeup artists and beauty influencers. It comes in 16 different shades and is currently half price. $25 at Sephora.

Guess Who board game

Guess Who? is a game night classic. The updated version includes 48 face cards and 24 mystery cards. This bilingual (French/English) board game will come in handy on the inevitable rainy afternoon when the kids are climbing the walls. $19.93 at Amazon.


For sleepers who run hot, the Therapedic TruCool Serene Foam pillow (medium support for standard and queen beds) is hypoallergenic and has a removable knit cover that stays cool to the touch. $77.99 at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Weleda skin food body butter

Parched skin will be soothed by the Weleda’s famous Skin Food. The body butter melts into skin and is ideal for spots that need a little extra TLC (like elbows, knees and heels). $21.24 at

Air fryer dual basket

If the single-basket air fryer is too basic for your cooking needs, the advanced dual-basket air fryer allows for more flexibility when cooking several ingredients at the same time. Each compartment has its own temperature setting and timer. Frigidaire 8 qt Dual Zone Air Fryer, $179.98 at Walmart.

XBox S

If a new Xbox has been on the wish list for a long time, Best Buy has Xbox S (512GB) consoles on sale for a limited time (which is very rare). Includes a wireless controller, $379.99 at Best Buy.
