Tons o’ deals if you have the time

This site is new to me (maybe I’ve been living under a rock…?), but right now there are literally tens of thousands of clearance deals at Spring right now, all name-brand goodies from Gymboree to Land of Nod to Sur la Table to Abercrombie & Fitch and more.

Make it even better with coupon code SUNNY20 for an additional 20% off. Shipping (and returns!) is free.

I am sorting through all the clearance because I’m a glutton for punishment, but if you were searching for a specific thing I imagine it might be a little bit easier to find some deals in a shorter period of time.

It’s time to Kohls again

Oh, we haven’t had a great combination of Kohls sales/coupons for a little while, which is weird, because Kohls is pretty much synonymous with sales and coupons. Hey, that’s fine. I’ll take it whenever it happens.

So here we go: Everyone gets $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent through April 15th, plus automatic free shipping on $75+ (shipping to your local store and picking up is always free), and through April 12th, coupon code SPRINGSAVE takes 20% off $100+ or 15% off a smaller order. If you have a Kohls charge card—which you do, right, because that’s how you get the best deals—you can use coupon code BUNNY30, instead, for 30% off any order, plus you can use code APR4FREE for free shipping on any size order.

Those percent off coupons can be stacked with department-targeted coupons, as well: STYLE10 takes $10 off your $40+ purchase in Juniors or Big Girls (7-16), PLAYTIME15 takes 15% off Melissa & Doug toys, and MENSTYLE10 takes $10 off your $50+ purchase of men’s clothing and shoes.

As always, there’s tons of great deals in the Clearance, so I start there. (Pssst, folks with kids heading off to college in the fall—this is a great time to pick up towels and other dorm-stuffs before they jack the prices up and start screaming “college prep!” this summer.)

Get Sneaky (right now)

Oh! One of my very favorite things is available on Lightning Deal at Amazon right now and you should go get it.

Sneaky Cards are a deck of 55 “dares” which can be distributed on the sly to just about anyone, anywhere. It’s a great “pay it forward” way to evoke gratitude, silliness, and/or daring. My kids love these, and so do I. The list price is $10, and the Lightning Deal has them available for just $7.

I’m snapping up a deck to leave with my newest college kid when we drop him off in August. *sniffle*

Score some Reebok deals

For a limited time, go visit the Reebok Outlet online and use coupon code XY7-TWH-N6G for 50% off and free shipping!

Sizes and selection are limited, but if you can find something you want, it’s a heck of a deal. (For once, I’m thrilled my kid wears a relatively small shoe.)

It’s President’s Day at Macy’s

I guess Macy’s is closing a bunch of stores around the country, but you wouldn’t necessarily know that from looking at their online site. Deals abound, and today they’ve got coupons, too.

Here’s the breakdown:
* Everyone gets free shipping on $49+, or you can add any Beauty item to your basket for free shipping on any size order, or you can look at free pickup at your local store (if you still have one).
* Apply coupon code PRES25 for $10 off your $25+ order (some exclusions apply).
* Apply coupon code PRES for 10% or 15% off your entire order (department dependent; some exclusions apply).

Coupon codes cannot be stacked, so use the first one for smaller orders or the second one for larger orders. And don’t miss the offers on the splash page, too—tons of clearance (which is an extra 25% off) and other markdowns worth checking out. (I’m sure it comes as a huge surprise that I’m scrolling through the shoe clearance right now….)

Time to clean up at Kohls

How much do I love a big sale and coupons at Kohls? So much. It might be my favorite thing.

Today they’ve got discounts galore, plus Kohls card holders can use coupon code LOVE30 for an additional 30% off and code FEB4FREE for free shipping on any size order. Anyone can use coupon code BABYSALE20 for an additional 20% off baby items (it stacks with a general percentage off coupon, too), or code SAVE15 for 15% off everything, and you’ll get free shipping on $75+. Everyone earns $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent right now, too, so you’ll be ready to shop the next sale.

One of their Doorbusters today is the Shark Navigator Swivel for $129 before coupons, which is already a nutty good deal. (For reference: Amazon has it for $220, with a 4.5 star average rating.) That vacuum for under $90 is a steal.

Go forth and save!

Bottle warming in a flash

I don’t know if this existed when my kids were babies and I just didn’t know about it or if it’s new, but if I’d needed a bottle warmer, I would’ve been delighted to discover this First Years Quick Serve Warmer available at Amazon for just $7.89. That’s about half off the regular price, and you can use it for baby food, too.

Honestly, if I’d had this when my kids were infants, I probably would’ve wrecked it at some point by trying to put my coffee in it. But I assume today’s young mothers are quite a bit smarter than I am.

‘Tis the season to stock up on kids’ clothes

It may still be gray and dreary outside, but that’s fine—spring and summer will come before you know it, and there’s plenty of last year’s warm-weather clothes in the current clearance over at Children’s Place. (There’s also tons of cold-weather clearance, which you can either buy for now because your kids pulled that tricky winter break growth spurt move, or just stock up for next year.)

Most clearance is at 75% off, and everything else is at 50% off, and today there’s free shipping, too.

I know I whine about this every time I post a Children’s Place deal, but it is a lot less fun to have children in adult sizes. I miss the days of assembling entire wardrobes for them at one of these sales for, like, $50. Enjoy it while you can!

I don’t know why, but I love it

This Madpax Spike Backpack is currently on Lightning Deal at Amazon for just $20.68 (instead of $60) and I know it’s weird and impractical, but I love it anyway.

There’s some kid out there who really wants to be a dinosaur or a mutant turtle who would love this, I just know it.

(If I needed a backpack, I would totally buy such a thing. I mean, it makes a statement, no? That statement might be “I am a real live cactus, beware,” but whatever.)

Save on last-minute toys

Sure, you’d have to order and then go to the store and pick it up, but today’s daily deal at Target is an extra 20% off many top toy brands, automatically. Buying online and picking up will save you from some of the in-store mayhem, too. (Alternatively—depending on how patient your recipients are—you can go with the free shipping and just wrap up a picture for Christmas, I guess.)

Worth a look if you’ve just done the oh-no-the-piles-aren’t-even shuffle, at least.
