This time of year is when we look for markdowns on those retailers that only offer discounts every once in a blue moon. And it looks like 2022 is closing on a high note because we found a bunch of deals so rare, we just can't believe our luck.
From unheard-of Nintendo and Our Place bundles to discounts on Beats headphones and MacBooks, we've scoured the web to find deals one can only wish to come across this close to the holidays. Below, you'll find 50 of our top markdowns you can still add to your cart right now (and receive before Christmas!) — but we don't expect them to last long!
Rare Lululemon holiday deals
Coming across a Lululemon sale is hard enough, but finding a pair of bestselling leggings for almost $60 off is like discovering a pot of gold. Snatch a pair to add under the tree (or just to gift yourself) before this deal sells out.
Lululemon's popular Align leggings aren't always budget-friendly, but the brand is giving shoppers a little gift this holiday season. Score the high-rise pants on sale while you still can — select shades are already selling out fast!
Flared bottoms are back on trend — and Lululemon discounts will never go out of style. This super-high-rise style is made with the same buttery-soft fabric the brand is known for, along with four-way stretch and sweat-wicking benefits.
This isn't your typical mirror ... according to Lululemon, it's the personal trainer you've always wanted. The sleek exercise device features an HD LED display and a high-tech surround sound system to enhance your workout experience. With a membership, you get access to over 10,000 classes in every level for 60+ fitness categories. Right now, you can still grab one for $700 off.
A basic tee — but make it bright! If one of Lululemon's ultra-comfortable Pima cotton t-shirts isn't in your current closet, you're missing out on one-of-a-kind softness.
Rare Skims holiday deals
When you want a smoother look under your form-fitting dresses and jumpsuits, a Skims bodysuit will do the trick. According to the brand, it offers a seamless look and a comfortable (snap-less) pull-on style.
And for your skirts, try these bike shorts on for size. They offer the same smoothing look but with a "second skin" feel and a "sculpting" look.
You don't see a lot of sales on Skims apparel throughout the year, but right now, the popular brand is discounting its bestselling items for a limited time. Grab this crewneck body in gray for just $44 — you'll feel cozy all day long wearing the "breathable" and huggable fabric.
