Great Target deals right from home

If you love Target (and if you don’t love Target I’m not sure we can still be friends…), you might be interested in checking out some of the deals featured on their splash page today. Of particular note: Buy One, Get One 50% off deal on ladies’ jeans and sweaters, plus up to 40% off Halloween costumes for the kids (and there’s still time to get ‘em before trick-or-treating).

I used to love walking up and down the endcaps at Target to find all the clearance deals, but now I am old and lazy so I just shop them online. Isn’t technology wonderful?

30% off, plus (rare) free shipping!

While coupons for Old Navy are plentiful, usually you have to get to a $50+ purchase for free shipping. Today (Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014) you can use coupon code THIRTY for an additional 30% off (works on Clearance items), plus you’ll get free shipping on any size order. (Note: your order will not default to free shipping, you’ll have to select it in-cart.)

Excuse me, I have to go shopping.

A very Minecraft deal

This one isn’t exactly cheap, but it is a great deal, particularly if you have Minecraft addicts afoot. Today Kids.Woot is offering 18 Minecraft collectible figures (that’s 6 random packages of 3 figures each) for $39.99. These 3-packs currently go for $10 apiece on Amazon, so this is about half what you’d pay, there.

These would be sweet party favors for a Minecraft birthday party, or just awesome stocking stuffers or other occasion gifts for your favorite Minecraft fanatics.

Do keep in mind that “random assortments” from Woot tend to have some duplicates, so I wouldn’t necessarily grab this with a single recipient in mind; if you have multiple folks needing Minecraft goodies, though, this would be perfect.

It’s not too late for Halloween deals

Still need a costume or two for your kids? Keep an eye on all of the Amazon Lightning Deals today—there’s tons of kiddie costumes in there at discount prices.

Of course, if you’ve been watching over the last few days, you know that they’ve also been featuring a ton of doggie costumes, and that’s been really stressful for me because I can’t decide if I really need that dinosaur outfit for Duncan. Decisions, decisions….

Discover the deals at Lands’ End

Lands’ End is doing a bit of a tricky sale, today, for Columbus Day. According to the site, you can take 25% off with the coupon code they provide. But according to me, you can take 30% off—even on already-reduced items—with coupon code MAIZE and PIN 1656. There’s tons of goodies in the Clearance section, so plenty of ways to save.

Shipping is free on $50+, and remember that you can return items to your local Sears, if need be.

Hurry, though—much like this elusive day off of school, after today, it’s over.

Game on, LEGO-style

Have a LEGO-crazy kiddo who loves gaming? Right now Amazon has two hot LEGO video games available at their lowest-ever prices. Choose from The LEGO Movie Videogame or LEGO Marvel: Super Heroes on a variety of platforms (Nintendo, XBox, Playstation, even PC) for just $19.99 each. (In poking around, it looks like some of the older platform versions may even be a couple of bucks cheaper.)

Get one or get ‘em both. Or just let Santa know they’re on sale. Whatever.

Any time is 6pm when there’s a coupon

It’s 6:00 somewhere, right? I’m sure people say that when they’re talking about shoes.

Today you can shop all of the already-deeply-discounted options over at, and you can also save another 10%. Just use coupon code 6PMEQ10720141098.

Shipping is free on everything, though this used to be the one site where I’d pay shipping without complaining (too much), because the prices are so low.

Happy shopping!

If only they made these in teen sizes

Remember when the kids were little and you could contain them? I want one of these big enough to keep my teens from wandering. That’s not weird, is it…?

Ahem. Anyway! If you have an actual baby, check out this Graco Pack ‘n’ Play With Bassinet at Amazon. It’s currently down to $67.99—which is a pretty good price, already—but if you scroll down on that page you’ll see two additional deals. First, buy the play yard along with a white sheet and you’ll get the sheet for free (bonus!). Second, the play yard itself will be 20% off in your cart, making your total for both items just $54.39 shipped.

(Note that the additional 20% off only applies to the “tinker” pattern.)

Hello, blocky Kitty

Got a kid who loves Hello Kitty? Right now Amazon has a Lightning Deal going on this Nanoblock Hello Kitty in The Park set, making it just $9.99 instead of the regular $25.

It’s tiny and cute and adorable. I sort of love it.

Grab it before it’s gone!

Hey, Baby—travel in style

Looking for a great deal on a travel solution for baby? I’ve got you covered.

Right now Amazon is offering this Graco FastAction Fold Sport Stroller Click Connect Travel System in Tangerine for $226.33 when you buy directly from Amazon (look in the righthand sidebar to choose Amazon as the vendor). That’s already a decent price for a highly-rated infant carseat/base/stroller combo, but it gets better.

Apply coupon code WHATADEAL to save an additional 20% (again, this only works when you buy from Amazon as the vendor); that’s $45.27, bringing your total down to $181.06. There’s also an available $25 manufacturer rebate, meaning you get the whole shebang for $156. Not bad!

This is probably not the deal to get if you already have an infant car seat, but if you need both the seat and a full-featured, lightweight (just 7.5 pounds), grows-with-your-child stroller, this deal is hard to beat.
