40% off most items (maybe)

Okay, so there’s a one-day-only 40% off deal happening at Old Navy today (Wednesday, October 19th)—use code QUICK to get the discount. There are some exclusions—Everyday Steals, Hot Deals, Clearance—but I put some sale jeans in my cart and it didn’t work on those and I don’t know why. (I then followed it with a sale top and that worked. So… I dunno.)

If you can find the items where the code works, obviously it’s a nice deal.

As always, shipping is free at $50+ across the shared Gap family stores basket (that includes Gap, Banana Republic, and Athleta). The code is good until 11:59 pm Eastern, tonight.

Time to start thinking about toys

Obviously we are on our way into Toy Sale Season, though for certain items it becomes a matter of “How badly do I want a deal on this” vs. “How much trouble is Santa going to be in if this item sells out?”

Maybe split the difference and check out the current toy promo at Target: right now you can shop and take $10 off your $50+ or $25 off your $100+ toy purchase with coupon code TOYS. The bad news is that it doesn’t work on LEGO or Cards Against Humanity products (booooo); the good news is that it works on just about everything else.

As always, do your homework—double-check the price at Amazon, etc. But there are definitely a few deals to be had. It’s almost enough to make me wish I still had toy shopping to do. (Almost!)

It’s a Flash Sale at Kohls!

Ready to get some boots/outerwear? Shop today (Tuesday, October 11th) at Kohls through noon Central time to score some awesome deals—you can use Flash Sale code BUYNOW for an extra 25% off, plus you can stack it with coupon code GET20 for another 20% off (that one works on anything).

I’m not seeing a free ship code right now, but everyone gets free shipping on their $75+ order, or you can opt to pick up your order in-store for free. (As if I’ve ever gotten out of Kohls for under $75… but maybe you have greater restraint than I do!) Also, pro tip: Close to the free shipping, but not quite there? You know you can return items to your local store, right? I’m just sayin’.

Time to stock up at Oriental Trading

Need to fill some goodie bags? If you’re like me, that means it’s time to check out Oriental Trading for a lot of little things for not that much money. The problem is getting to whatever the free shipping threshold is on any given day. But not today! Because today (Monday, October 10th), you can use coupon code OTC165560 for free shipping on any size order. Order as much or as little as you like; it all ships for free.

I’m seeing tons of holiday and classroom items in the Clearance section, too. Might be a good time to make a favorite teacher very happy….

Who deserves a pony?

Have an amazing little kiddo on your shopping list who wants a pony? You can deliver… or, rather, Amazon can deliver this Rockin’ Rider Brown Rocking Pony Ride-On for just $18.26 delivered if you have Prime. If your small recipient would rather ride a buckin’ bronco, the Rockin’ Rider Brown Rocking Bull Ride-On is down to just $17.78, but I don’t think he’s quite as friendly looking as the pony.

Both have great reviews and are recommended for tots up to 40 pounds. No word on how much hay they consume annually, though.

Kid growing too fast?

I know you are tired of hearing me lament the day my last kid finally outgrew The Children’s Place, but I am still bitter. It used to make my life so easy—just wait for a good sale, swoop in and get everything they needed. Easy-peasy.

Well, it’s a memory for me, but if you still have little or littlish ones, you can hop on over there today and enjoy 40% off all apparel and 30% off everything else, plus the Clearance is all at 50% off. Shipping is free on every order. This is a one-day thing (until the next one, anyway), so get on it. And—and maybe you won’t appreciate this, but I do—they used to only go up to size 14, and I see they go all the way to 16, now (including slim and husky options).

They have Halloween shirts, sure, but also their holiday dress-up options are in stock, so now’s a perfect time to buy coordinating outfits while you dream of taking a Christmas card picture that does not feature at least one child mid-meltdown. Okay, it’s possible I’m projecting….

Friends & Family savings at Lands’ End, today only

Today is a hard day for a lot of Americans, because last night there was a presidential debate which—speaking only for myself, of course—caused some of us to question the reality of our existence.

Political debate is one thing. Good bargains are another. Today I’m going to try (and probably fail) to stick to the latter.

So: Oh look! Over there, at Lands’ End! On the site they’ve got a 30% off coupon, but I’ll do you one better because I like you. Today (Tuesday, September 27th) only, use coupon code ENJOY40 with PIN 7260 for 40% off nearly everything, including clearance items. 40% off soothes all sorts of things, including political hangovers.

Also, for anyone who isn’t already worshipping at the altar of Lands’ End and has a tall/skinny kid: This is (still!) my go-to store for quality pants for kids of the string-bean variety.

End your weekend on a high (mystery) note

This post is sponsored by As always, all opinions are my own.

It’s almost Monday again, and that means (for me, anyway) spending tonight finishing all off the things I swore I was going to do last week. Whoops. Among those many things: my college student is still looking for a few things, and maybe I’m feeling nice enough to go shop for her. Maybe.

Enter Kohls, naturally. And even better, today they’ve got a a mystery coupon available worth 20%, 30%, or even 40% off your order! (You have to go through the link to get your unique coupon code.)

kohls-hex-chairNow: what to do, what to do? I got a 30% off code, which means this hexagon chair that would match the kid’s roommate’s chair would be just under $45, because it’s already on sale. I’d probably be very popular if I went ahead and got that. (For at least a few minutes, anyway.) (And then we’d be in the whole “how do we know which chair is which?” thing, or, who knows, maybe they’d go all southern on me and want them monogrammed. Seems unlikely, though.)

kohls-yoda-lampOn the other hand, I suspect that I would be even more popular if I went ahead and snagged this LEGO Star Wars Yoda desk lamp, because if I asked she’d tell me it was for little kids, but if I just bought it she would love it and be the envy of the dorm. (Hrm. Assuming no one else in her dorm already has one; she lives in the nerd dorm so it’s possible that would not be the case.)

Regardless, I’ve got until midnight Central time to shop, so I’m sure I’ll find something worthwhile to spend my savings on, whether for the kids or just for myself. And you can go get your code and do the same. The holidays are coming…. (And believe you me, if I’d gotten one of those 40% codes? I’d be buying everything!)
