If you’re still shopping for dorm items, you’re in luck. Several retailers have slashed prices in the home decor department this week and we’re seeing some amazing deals for items that — while not necessarily labeled “college” — would be perfect for a dorm or shared apartment. Whether you’re searching for the perfect twin XL duvet cover or trying to get the best deal on a mini fridge, this roundup of sales is sure to help you check off an item or two on your list. You might even find something you didn’t know you needed like a memory foam twin XL mattress topper for just 15 bucks.

The Best Places That Offer Student Discounts Online

Target Deals for Dorms

Target’s weekly ad has tons of dorm deals for stocking up on the basics. Beyond markdowns, you can't beat how affordable even the full-priced items are for dorm essentials at Target. Score a mint green lamp for $7, and scoop up some trendy twin XL sheet sets such as this retro peach print for under $10. You can even snag a foam twin XL mattress topper for just $15 right now.

Urban Outfitters Deals for Dorms

Duvet covers are one of the best ways to bring color and pattern into a dorm, especially if you’re not allowed to hang art on the walls, but shopping for that oddly-specific twin XL size can be frustrating as not every retailer carries it. If you’re still searching for the perfect dorm bedding, head over to Urban Outfitters. There are so many options (in twin XL!) on sale right now and some sets are even less than $50, and the prints are gorgeous. There are tons of trendy, vintage-inspired florals to choose from.

Bed Bath & Beyond Deals for Dorms

BB&B is always a go-to for everything dorm shopping, and right now there are so many small appliances under $100, $50 and even $25. Snag this compact Bissell vacuum for quick cleanups, a Keurig coffee machine for late-night study sessions or this Black + Decker kettle for just $21. An electric kettle is great for tea, but it’s also handy for making college staples such as ramen noodles or oatmeal. But before you add anything to your cart, make sure to sign up for the BB&B Savings Pass exclusive to college students. This gives students 20 percent off every purchase until September 30!

Best Buy Deals for Dorms

Sure, Best Buy has great deals on laptops. But the tech retailer also has tons of mini fridges on sale (with free shipping!), from stainless steel to top freezer units to this adorable icy blue retro fridge. It also comes in cream and it's on sale, too!

The Container Store Deals for Dorms

Like BB&B, The Container Store also has a savings pass just for college students. Now through August 15, college students can save 15 percent with sign-up and it's a great way to save big on dorm organization and storage products, from trendy clear acrylic bins to handy rolling carts.

Anthropologie Deals for Dorms

Dorm rooms can look pretty cookie cutter with plain, beige walls and utilitarian furniture, but a couple of statement pieces can turn a ho-hum room into a space full of personality and cozy vibes. Anthropologie always has swoon-worthy decor, and right now there are tons of statement pieces on sale that you don’t actually have to splurge on, from textured accent rugs to a chic chair upgrade. And right now, all monogram mugs are up to 40 percent off. We spotted the super-popular bistro tile mug for just $8!
