The truth is out there (and on sale)

Ready to rewatch The X-Files? The entire series and movie collection (54 discs!) is in the Amazon Gold Box today for 77% off. Get it all for $75 and make the geek in your life happy.

Or get it for yourself, and spend some time walking down Memory Lane. True, those memories involve aliens, but that’s okay. It’s a great deal on one of my all-time favorite series, and hundreds of hours of entertainment.

Let the kids have their selfie fun

On the one hand, I think a selfie stick is a bizarre invention. On the other… hey, what’s the harm in the kids amusing themselves with goofy self-portraits? Exactly.

What you don’t want to be doing, though, is paying $20 for a selfie stick, or—worse yet—getting a bulky or crummy one. You’ll thank me for this one around Christmas, when you remember that you got the deal and tucked it away: Amazon has this Aukey compact bluetooth selfie stick available right now for $12.99, which is okay, but when you apply coupon code U4T37Y87 you’ll get another $4 off, making it just $8.99 shipped if you have Prime. That’s what I’m talking about! This version gets great reviews, and $9 is a price I can stomach for frivolity.

The best deal on the best duffle

The last time I posted this deal was over 4 years ago, but it’s back on select colors—right now Amazon has the Samsonite Tote-a-Ton Duffel available for just $19.99 in either purple or green (red and black are more expensive). This is the lowest it ever goes, pretty much. (For reference: The same bag is $30 at eBags and excluded from coupons.)

This under-a-pound sturdy bag will hold as much as a steamer trunk, then fold down to almost nothing for storage when you’re done with it. Grab one now for next spring when you suddenly realize your kid needs a bag for camp/college/being thrown out of the house because it’s time.

Not that I am advocating throwing your child out. I’m just suggesting you score a deal on this bag, is all.

Busted? Half-price!

If you love goofy t-shirts, look no further than BustedTees, plus look right now because they’re doing a limited-time special where everything is half off. Add any $20 shirt to your cart and *poof* it’s just $10.

This is one of the places I like to get t-shirts for my hard-to-please teens. (And also sometimes for me, but don’t tell them that.)

A Woot-Off with a bonus

I was just doing the mental equivalent of “Tuesday. Ugh!” and thought to myself, “It’s a good day for a Woot-Off, I bet.” And I was right! It’s like Woot did it just for me. (Or like it was just a lucky coincidence. Whatever.) They’re rotating deals all day long at Woot, Home.Woot, Kids.Woot, Tools.Woot, Sport.Woot, and everyone’s favorite not-so-accurately-named Wine.Woot. Even better, pay your $5 shipping on a single purchase and *BAM*, you now have free shipping for the rest of the day (today only). This works on everything except wine, because wine needs its own shipping charge, apparently. (That’s fine because Wine.Woot is hardly ever wine, anyway.)

Shop once. Shop twice. Shop until your spouse tells you have a problem (no, don’t do that! I’m joking!). It doesn’t matter—$5 is all you’ll pay in shipping, no matter what. It’s the perfect way to counteract a bad case of Tuesdayitis.

It’s a beautiful day for a Last Call

I love Last Call by Neiman Marcus, anyway, but today there’s even more to love—in addition to a bunch of additional markdowns just taken on their clearance items, today you can use coupon code AUGWLC10 for an additional $10 off your $50+ purchase.

Shipping is free on $99+ with code LCSHIP, or free on whatever if you have Shoprunner (and you can always sign up for a free trial of that).

Also I’m really glad I found this sale after the kids left for school. Popping up a Nordstrom Rack browser window is like a Pavlovian signal to my oldest to start saying, “I want that one, and that one, and that one….”

Fall into 40% off

Ready to stock up at Gap? Today (Friday, August 21st) only, shop all you like there and coupon code BDAY will take 40% off and give you free shipping.

Do check out the exclusions—there are many, like women’s swimwear and kids’ sleepwear—but I tested it on a few sale items and it worked. And we all know the best way to use a coupon is on the stuff already on sale, anyway!

Summer and travel clearance at Eddie

I do love a sale at Eddie Bauer, and this end-of-summer clearance they have going on right now is exactly my speed. Save up to 70% on season’s end items, plus 40-50% on their Travex line of clothing and gear. Snap up those markdowns on things like the Expedition Hanging Kit now and look like a big-shot when you’re doing graduation gifts next spring (trust me).

The site has a code for free shipping on your $99+ order, but get free shipping on any order with code BEYOND ALIVE, so order as much or as little as you like.

Tickle your Tervis!

Okay, in fairness, the coupon code GAMEDAY is going to take 30% off nearly everything at Bealls today, not just Tervis tumblers and accessories. But—Tervis is pretty much all I go to Bealls for, because it’s one of the few places that puts it on sale periodically and doesn’t exclude it from coupons. Find something already on sale, then take off another 30%? Score! Edited to add: Thanks to beautiful and alert reader Laura for pointing out you can stack that with coupon code MOBILE for free shipping on any order!

Um. Did you know there are Star Wars Tervis? Be still my heart.

Shipping is a flat $5, which is nothing if you’re stocking up on gifts. These definitely are the condensation-proof, unbreakable cups you’re looking for….

Flash Tuesday!

Still have back-to-school clothes shopping to do? Check out Flash Tuesday today over at Macy’s—they’ve literally got thousands of today-only discounts happening, plus everyone gets free shipping on orders of just $25+. It’s a perfect time to round out those wardrobes or pick up some other home items you’ve been wanting.

Some of these deals are ridiculously good. In just a short time of poking around I’ve found some amazing discounts on bras and infant clothing. (Yeah, those look weird together. Try to overlook that.)

Deals end tonight at midnight, so get going if you’re interested.
