There’s still time for Easter savings

Lots of good discounts are happening today over at Bon-Ton: save up to an extra 30% on nearly everything with coupon code MARCH30SAVE, get free shipping on just $25+ with code FREESHIP25 (or free shipping on anything with Shoprunner), and there’s plenty of markdowns and specials. (Note: remember that coupon savings can be used on items marked “Clearance” but not those marked “Yellow Dot.”)

If you’re an end-of-season clothes shopper, this is the sale to hit. Women’s clothing is starting at just a couple of bucks for tops, and then the coupon on top of that!

Do you Schoola?

Have you checked out Schoola yet? Like ThredUp, it’s a site for gently used clothing at a deep discount, and also like ThredUp, if you’re new and you go sign up through my link, right now you’ll get a $15 credit at checkout when you register (and for a limited time, shipping is free). You can also designate a local school to benefit from your shopping, which is a nice little side benefit.

If you’re already a Schoola member, you can still save—use coupon code SPRINGSPREE right now for $10 off your $10+ purchase.

The free shipping thing is rare, so definitely go check it out while the getting’s good. I know I was supposed to be shopping for my kids, but, um, two pairs of shorts for me fell into my cart somehow. (Hey, with the coupon I only paid $3.)

Stock up for the kids at the Clearance Blowout

Kids outgrowing all of their clothes again? No worries—today only (Monday, March 30th), get free shipping and an additional 30% off at Children’s Place, so you can stock up on everything they need.

I’ll just be over here, slightly bitter that they only go up to size 14. My son loved those Matchables cotton gym shorts for years, and they always held up forever, until I had to buy the next size for $4 or whatever. Now he’s man-sized and the same kind of shorts cost a minimum of $20. No fair.

Magazine me

Have you peeked in today’s Amazon Gold Box yet? The Bonus Deal of the Day is an assortment of $5 magazine subscriptions, including O (which would be a whopping $108/year at full retail)—one of our favorites to have around for making collages—and Popular Science—one of my nerdling’s favorites.

At $5/pop you can fill your mailbox for not much money, and you’ll always have something good to read or do your nails on. Or both! Points for multitasking, and all of that.

Get comfy, save more, with Hanes

Don’t forget that while you’re spring cleaning, you may also wish to clean out everyone’s underwear drawers and chuck the items which have seen better days. Need replacements? No problem—right now Hanes is offering 50% off some of their bestsellers, which means deals for the whole family.

Shipping is free on your $60+ order, or just $1.99 if you apply coupon code 89403.

Swag for the teens

Wait, do the kids even say “swag” anymore? Is it fly? On fleek? I can’t keep track.

Regardless, my teenagers like the clothes and accessories from Tilly’s very much, and I like when they have a big sale like they’re having now—an extra 30-50% is coming off sale items in-cart (discount noted on product page), plus you can use coupon code FS2015 for free shipping on any size order.

This is where I once scored a pair of sweet discontinued Vans for my son and was cool for, like, a whole 60 seconds. Ah, memories.

LEGO my transport

It’s nice when you can catch some random LEGO set marked down sometime other than December, isn’t it? Heh. Today Amazon has this LEGO City Great Vehicles Auto Transporter set marked down to $20.99, which is a third off of retail and its lowest price on Amazon ever. Get the transporter, two cool cars to load on it, two minifigs, and the associated accessories (like a wee LEGO clipboard).

This is a 300+ piece, 5-star-rated set. If my kid was still in the LEGO years, I’d be snapping this up right quick.

Hello, Kohlsday

It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s time for my cranky dog to get his booster vaccines. Um. Which you don’t care about in the slightest. But! It’s also time for another round of sales at Kohls, which maybe you do care about. (I may need more coffee….)

Right now everyone gets automatic free shipping on $75+, and $10 of Kohls Cash for every $50 spent. If you have a Kohls card, use coupon code SHOWERS30 for an additional 30% off, and code MVCMARCH for free shipping on any size order. (Did I ever mention that the $.25 price mistake sweaters from the last sale did actually show up? They’re adorable. My daughter and I each got one.) If you don’t have a Kohls card, you can still use coupon code LUVDEAL for an extra 15% off.

Of course they’ve got a slew of “One Day Deals” going on, too, and although they don’t seem to understand that it’s not “one day” so much as “all the time,” hey, whatever. Works for me.

Suit up for Easter (or whenever)

It’s another huge blowout sale over at Children’s Place, plus automatic free shipping on any size order, plus an additional 20% off even sale prices when you apply coupon code SPRDM20FY.

That means it’s the perfect time to order coordinating Easter outfits for the kids. Or to stock up for summer. Or just to buy some cute little accessories to put in Easter baskets. Whatever. Everything’s on sale, so if you’re shopping for kids, they’ve likely got deals on anything you need to keep them looking adorable.

For Halloween, or just for dress-up

When my kids were little, we had a giant chest full of dress-up clothes that provided endless hours of entertainment. Sometimes they even wore said costumes instead of just strewing them all over the house! Imagine!

So I love a deal like this: Right now Amazon has slashed prices on tons of their costumes. Choose from various options from California Costumes or Rubies Costumes (though you’ll have to do a bit more digging when it comes to the Rubies sale).

It’s worth spending some time picking through if your kids love to dress up; I’m seeing some items as much as 90% off. Happy hunting!
