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.

Halloween? It’s coming!

If you haven’t snagged what you need for Halloween, yet, check out the up-to-70%-off Halloween sale going on today over at Bon-Ton. There’s tons of deals for everyone from infants to adults, plus home decor, too.

In addition, you can score coupons with your Goodwill donations (see site for details), everyone gets free shipping on $75+ with coupon code FREESHIP75, and most items are now Shoprunner eligible, too, so if you have that, free shipping no matter the total. Sweet.

Wednesday is Kohlsday, once again

Happy Wednesday! Time to hit up Kohls for this week’s crazy savings.

The One-Day Sale (hey Kohls, I don’t think that means what you think it means…) is on, plus everyone gets free shipping on $50+ and $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent. If you have a Kohls charge card, use coupon code SEPTMVC for free shipping on any size order and code SPLURGE30 for an additional 30% off your entire purchase. No Kohls card? You can still save an additional 15% with coupon code THANKS7427.

It’s a perfect time to stock up on home deals in addition to clothes, by the way. Lots of great bargains in today’s sale. (Am I the only one who spends an inordinate amount of time admiring the Fiestaware? Just me? Oh, never mind, then.)

Friends & Family time at Puma

It turns out that Puma makes way more than sneakers, and right now is a great time to save with them—everything they sell is an additional 40% off when you use coupon code FFSAVINGS. That code works even on top of already-reduced sale prices, and shipping is free on all orders, too.

I’m digging their ballet flats. The only thing better than a super-cute casual shoe is one that’s super-cute but feels like a sneaker!

Halloween? Yeah, Halloween.

I know that—at least to me—Halloween still seems impossibly far off, but really, it’s September, and Halloween is on its way. (Is it me, or was this the fastest summer ever in the history of summers? Seemed like it.)

If Halloween’s your thing, today is the day to hit BuyCostumes: they’re having a one-day-only sale extravaganza!

First, they have a bunch of “Pumpkin Busters” (like Door Busters, I guess) going on, with crazy low prices on costumes for everyone from babies to adults. There’s also “orange tag” items of under $10. Then you can also—today only—use coupon code Orange25 for an additional 25% off!

Do they have Frozen costumes? Yep, they do. Good luck finding one of those in October, by the way. Just sayin’.

He needed it, okay?

Yes, I live in Georgia. Yes, it rarely gets that cold here. Yes, my pampered, somewhat health-compromised second dog can’t even really go for proper walks. (In our family we refer to it as him going for “a carry.”) And yes, okay, fine, I just bought him a coat.

Sometimes it gets cold. I don’t want him to be chilly. Stop looking at me like that.

Well, you see, there’s a great 30% off coupon going today at Lands’ End—just use coupon code PUMPKIN with PIN 1606—and it works on clearance and they had doggie squall jackets for, like, $8 before the coupon. Also they had a bunch of other stuff we needed.

Shipping is free on $50+, and returns are free at your local Sears store.

And Duncan is totally going to wear that jacket this winter. I’ll send you a picture.

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!]
