I confess, Kohls got me today

I know, I know, there’s often a good batch of sales/deals/coupons at Kohls on a Wednesday, and that’s not new. But today they me laugh—everyone can save 20% on $100+ with code MARCHING or 15% on any size order with code BAND. We band parents have to take the humor wherever we find it, y’know.

Even better: Everyone gets free shipping on $50+, automatically, and everyone earns $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent. They’ve got the usual crop of sales and doorbusters going on, too, plus some great deals on Keurigs if you’re in the market for one of those.

A perfect day to Bon-Ton

Been over to Bon-Ton lately? Today’s the day to do it—save an additional 30% on almost everything with coupon code AUG14SAVE30 today only, plus stack it with code FREESHIP for free shipping on any size order. If you love Clinique, they’re also running a Clinique bonus (I love their little bonus pouches; so cute).

Remember, when they have a code like this, it does work on regular Clearance items, but it does not work on Yellow Dot Clearance. In other words: choose your items carefully.

(I totally stock up during these sales. The prices are hard to beat, and often when I’m shopping for the kids, something for me falls into my cart. Whoops!)

Back to school cool (on sale and shipped free)

There’s no shortage of beautiful things over at Pottery Barn Kids, and if you check out their back-to-school backpacks and luggage sale right now, you’ll find deep discounts and (even better) free shipping on a variety of stuff your kids crave. They’ve got everything from suitcases to personalized superhero notebooks, and if you’re the sort to give in to a little indulgence for your kids (or you have or are a grandparent waiting to do so…), this is the sale to hit.

They’ve got little fun items like sandwich cutters and water bottles, too, that would normally be cost-prohibitive to ship, even on sale. I love when they offer free shipping!

[Edited to add: Looks like the same deal applies at PB Teen, and most of their stuff is even cheaper! Woohoo!]

Spin me right round, baby, right round

I think we saw a deal on this a year or two ago, and it was hugely popular, and it’s baaaaaaaack! Right now Amazon has the Spin ‘N Saucer available for just $19.94 with free Prime shipping (or free Super Saver Shipping eligible)—that’s its lowest price ever. Buy it now and tuck it away for Christmas!

If you have a kid who loves to spin, it doesn’t get much more fun than this. Supposedly this is for ages up to 5… if your kid is small, they could use it longer. And just because I like you, I’ll tell you that we lovingly nicknamed this one the “spin and barf” in my house.

Back-to-school shoe time!

Need new shoes? It’s the perfect time to shop Famous Footwear; through the weekend they’re doing Buy 1, Get 1 Half Off, plus there’s coupons to make it even better! Use code SCHOOL33 for an extra 20% off if you’re a Rewards Member, or code SCHOOL39 for 15% off if you’re not. (The Reward Program is free, and you can sign up on the site, by the way.)

Shipping is a flat $4.50, or free if you’re a Gold Rewards Member, which is beyond even my shoe-loving status, but if you have a lot of feet to cover, I guess it could happen.

All the savings at Macy’s today

If you’re still back-to-school shopping, it’s an excellent day to hit up Macy’s—you can use coupon code LUCKYU to take 20% off clothing, and most other items are 15% off. That’s on top of all the sales they’re running right now, and the current Lancome bonus. (I doubt you’re buying Lancome for the kids—though if you are, hey, no judgment—but as long as you’re shopping, $35+ on Lancome today gets you a free 7-piece bonus gift, and if you spend $70+ on Lancome you get another 3-piece bonus on top of that.)

Shipping is automatically free on $99+, plus if you spend that much, returns are free as well. Of course, you can always return at your local story for free, too. And I don’t know about you, but if I can order stuff to the house for the kids to try on instead of dragging teenagers to the store, I don’t mind returning the extras one bit.

Lunch just got more fun

Whether you’re packing lunches for the kids or eating at home, everything’s about to get a lot more fun with Amazon’s help, today.

First, their Gold Box is stuffed full of Thermos deals today, from a light-up R2D2 bag to plain insulated water bottles for any age.

Second, if you house a couple of quesadilla fiends (like I do), this best-selling Hamilton Beach quesadilla maker is down to $11.99 again (its best price ever). Necessary? Probably not. Super fun? Heck yes!

Timing is everything at Old Navy

I clearly have back-to-school clothing shopping on the brain, today. Here’s another good one: Right now Old Navy is allowing you to take an extra 30% off with coupon code AMPM, and that’ll work until noon Pacific time, at which point it will switch to giving you 20% off until midnight Pacific time. School uniforms, Everyday Steals, and Hot Deals are excluded, but Sale/Clearance items are not, so a little digging can pay off, here.

Shipping is free on $50+, and that’s across the whole shared-cart family of stores (including Gap, Banana Republic, Athleta, and of course any item from Piperlime in your cart ships your whole order for free).

[Edited to add: Looks like it's a Super Cash period, too---the more you spend, the more Super Cash you'll earn towards a future purchase!]

Back to school scores

In addition to the usual shoe sales over at 6pm.com, they’re doing a bunch of Back To School spotlight sales today. That means you can get shoes and clothes, sure, but they also have some amazing deals on backpacks, tech cases, and even jewelry. (Ummm… do we need jewelry for back to school, now?)

If you have a kid who needs an indestructible backpack, search on k-swiss backpack to find a slew of 70% off options.

My favorite kind of back-to-school shopping is the kind I can do right here at my desk. My kids appreciate it, too.

Get your fruit snacks on

Love Annie’s Fruit Snacks and other snacky goodies for the kids? Right now Amazon is offering an additional 20% off coupon on many of their snack-time favorites, and that can be used in combination with Subscribe & Save savings, too, for a potential 40% off and free shipping.

My kids are 14.5 and 16. And you betcha I bought them some organic bunnies. I can do that, because I’m still their mommy even though they’re both taller than me now.
