Highly effective teens?

Personally, I hear the phrase “highly effective teens” and I hear “sparkly unicorn.” Not that I don’t love teens. I do! I even love my personal teens! But “highly effective” is just… not how I’d describe them.

Well, I can’t think of a better passive-aggressive encouraging gift for your favorite teen before we segue into the new school year than this set: Grab the miniature edition of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens for just $3.82 (perfect for getting lost in the bottom of a backpack!), plus the companion The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens Workbook for just $3.30.

For under $10 you’ll either open up a whole new world of productivity for your kid, or create an environment in which you should probably sleep with one eye open. It could go either way.

Double your pleasure today

So here’s something you don’t see all that often—the Amazon Gold Box actually holds two great deals today!

The main deal is a The Lord of the Rings Blu-ray trilogy for just $37.99—their best price ever. And given the length of those movies and all the extras you get, that works out to about a dollar an hour for your entertainment.

But perhaps even better, the bonus deal of the day is this Garmin nĂ¼vi 2557LMT 5-Inch Portable Vehicle GPS with Lifetime Maps and Traffic for just $120. Lifetime maps and traffic are, to my mind, a deal at any price. But my favorite part of this particular deal is that (for some reason) this item is showing up as “#1 best seller in Air Guns.” Ummmmm… okay. Amazon, you crazy.

Woot your Wednesday

It’s a Woot-Off! Stalk the rotating deals all day long at Woot, Home.Woot, and Kids.Woot. Don’t see something you like? Don’t worry, new deals will be popping up shortly.

Not a bad way to break up the week, especially if you nab something good.

J. Crew for those not independently wealthy

I’ll confess that I sometimes wonder who, exactly, is buying the full-price items at J. Crew. Then I wonder what they do for a living. And sometimes—rarely, but sometimes—I wonder if they’ll adopt me. (Hey, imagine the difference in some of life’s stressors if you were the sort of person who could routinely drop $70+ on a t-shirt. I’m just saying.)

Anyway! I’d rather shop at the J. Crew Factory Store, and I’d especially rather shop there a time like now, when all the clearance is an additional 50% off with coupon code EXTRA50.

That means things like a $63 plastic “statement necklace” is now just $7. (It does not, however, help you if you cannot figure out why in the world you would want something called a statement necklace. Guilty.)

Shipping is free on $100+, otherwise it’s a flat $5.

It’s a great day to Kohls

Break up the monotony of your week this Wednesday (it is Wednesday, right?) with some shopping over at Kohls—their summer sale is on, plus you can redeem your Kohls Cash from the last earning period.

Everyone gets free shipping on $75+, and Kohls card holders can use code JULYMVC for free shipping on any size order, plus coupon code BEACH30 for an additional 30% off. No Kohls card? You can still use coupon code SUNNY for an extra 15% off.

Looks like they’ve added a bunch of stuff to the clearance, too.

Stay cool with this deal

Have a kiddo heading off to college soon, or maybe you have a little Man Cave at home that needs its own fridge? Home Depot has you covered—today they’re offering a special discount on this 3.5 cubic foot Magic Chef Mini-Fridge in stainless steel. It’s just $98, and available both for free shipping and local store pickup (in most areas). Note that this is a bit larger than the typical dorm fridge, too, as well as being a lot more attractive.

This deal is so good, I’m tempted to get one. But my office is about 20 feet from my kitchen, so that seems excessive, even for me.

If you love Justice and Brothers…

… well, then, I’m sorry that I’ve missed posting some of their recent flash sales. (A lovely reader told me about some great deals she scored on the last one, but I didn’t see it until it was over. Whoops.)

But the good news is that today at Justice and Brothers they’re doing it all over again—it’s a flash sale that ends tonight, and coupon code 738 takes 40% off and then another 20% off. On clearance items, that means you’re looking at about 80% off altogether, after discounts.

Yeah, their stuff is pricey, and yes, the 40% code is something they do pretty much all the time. But with a sale like this, you can score some decent deals and make your kid happy. Plus… they carry school uniform apparel, too.

Happy 10th birthday, Woot!

Can you believe that Woot is turning 10 today? I suddenly feel very old. But no matter; they see this as an opportunity for deals, and I’m down with that.

All day today, deals are rotating every hour. This is sort of like a Woot-Off, but less frenetic. Plus—free shipping on everything! Woooooo! Also various places on the site will offer you the opportunity to snag a Woot Bag of Crap. (I know. If you don’t already know what that is, it sounds gross. It’s not! I promise! Just a cheap way to take a chance on getting some awesome stuff.)

It’s a nice way to celebrate entering the double digits, I think, plus it’s more deals for us. Best goodie bags ever!

Get your jeans on (for less)

There’s a huge end-of-season sale going on right now at Levi’s, with tons of markdowns already in place, and coupon code EXTRA50SALE will save you an additional 50% on those sale items ending in .90 or .97, too. (You may need to go through colors/sizes to find which items qualify.) We’re talking genuine Levi’s for $10; it doesn’t get much better than that.

(Note that the code displayed on the site is 40% off with EXTRA40SALE; you’re special, though, so you can use the 50% off code, instead.)

Shipping is free on $100+, otherwise it started at $7.50.

Heads up, Okabashi fans

If you love Okabashi sandals—and what’s not to like about beach shoes that are BPA-free, recyclable, and dishwasher safe, really?—through July 10th you can scoop some up on the cheap. Just use coupon code UPSV67C2 for free shipping on any order, plus code JUL40OFF for an additional 40% off.

This is a great way to either try them out or expand your collection. Or to nab some summer shoes for teenagers whose feet won’t stop growing. Either way.
