All of August’s best traditional deals are here this week, from back-to-school laptops, to clearance patio furniture, to mattresses just in time for a dorm room or first apartment. All these and more are in this week’s best bargains.

Dell XPS and Alienware Laptops and Desktops: Extra 10% Off

August is one of the best times of the year to buy a laptop, thanks to back to school sales. And while we normally recommend that students invest in an affordable, no-frills setup, these high-end Dell XPS and Alienware desktops and laptops are perfect for gamers and those needing a little extra oomph in their computing. They’re currently discounted an extra 10% through the Member Purchase Program, via coupon code “10OFFAWXPS”. Plus, all orders receive free shipping. Deal ends August 11.

A couple of best bets, with prices after coupon, include the Dell XPS 15 Intel Skylake Core i5 2.3GHz Quad 15.6″ 1080p Laptop with 2GB GPU & 32GB SSD for $1,058.39 ($142 off), and the Dell XPS 27 2720 Intel Haswell Core i5 2.9GHz Quad 27″ 1440p Touchscreen All-in-One Desktop PC for $1,499.39 (pictured, low by $201)

Note: Dell’s MPP is available to select groups, including students, government employees, military (active and retired), credit union members, and health care workers.

Mattresses at Sears: 50% to 60% off, Plus Extra Coupons

Matching some of the best mattresses deals we saw last Memorial Day, Sears cuts 50% to 60% off a selection of mattresses and mattress sets. Plus, take an extra 10% off select items. (Discount is reflected in the price shown.) Better yet, take $5 off select orders of $50 or more via coupon code “SEARS5OFF50”, $35 off orders of $300 or more via code “SEARS35OFF300”, or $75 off orders of $599 or more via code “SAVE75”. (Many exclusions apply. If “SAVE75” doesn’t work, try “SAVE50”, which takes $50 off orders of $599 or more.) Additionally, Shop Your Way Rewards members receive a $10 SYWR credit on select orders over $50. (Not a member? It’s free to join.) Shipping adds $69.99, but most orders of $599 or more (after all discounts) qualify for free shipping. (In-store pickup is also available for select items.) Some exclusions may apply. Deal ends August 27.

Some choice discounts (with prices after “SAVE75”, savings factoring in $10 SYWR credit, and free shipping) include the BeautyRest Recharge St. Caroline Extra-Firm Queen Mattress for $712.49 (savings of $1,198), and the Sealy Posturepedic Plus Hearst Firm Tight-Top King Mattress for $770.99 (savings of $1,279). Of note, Shop Your Way Rewards members may be eligible for additional credits and discounts.

Hudson Reed Summer Sale: Up to 50% Off

Hudson Reed continues to take up to 50% off select bathroom and kitchen hardware Summer Sale. (Prices are as marked.) Plus, it takes an extra 5% off orders of $149 or more, an extra 10% off $299 or more, or an extra 15% off $499 or more. (Discount applies in-cart.)

Patio Sale & Clearance Items at Target: Up to 90% Off, Plus 10% Off

August is also an amazing time to pick up patio furniture. Not only is it available at deep discounts, but you still have plenty of time left to enjoy it this year before putting it away for winter. Target takes up to 90% off a selection of patio sale and clearance items. (Target advertises up to 40% off, but we found deeper discounts within.) Plus, take an extra 10% off select items via coupon code “OUTDOOR10” and an extra $5 off select orders of $50 or more via coupon code “TGT26N63”. (Clearance items are excluded from the latter coupon.) Choose in-store pickup to dodge the shipping fees, which start around $4, or bag free shipping on orders of $25 or more. (Oversize items may incur additional fees.)
