Let Children’s Place pay for your Tiny Prints

Small children growing faster than you can keep them in clothes? Have no fear; Children’s Place is here to make sure your up-to-size-14 kids always have something cute and affordable to wear. Right now you can use coupon code 25SAVINGS3 to take 25% off your entire order, plus you’ll get free shipping on $50+ (otherwise shipping is a flat $5).

Better still: Right now, when you order $30+ worth of merchandise, they’ll email you a code for $30 off your order at Tiny Prints, which means you can get the clothes your kids need and basically count them as free once you go shop for your holiday cards or whatever else you need. Awesome bonus!

Of course, my kids are too big for Children’s Place and I haven’t sent out holiday cards in years, so I will just have to live vicariously through those of you who 1) have smaller children and 2) are more organized.

Skip Hop in the Lightning Deals

You are keeping an eye on the Amazon Lightning Deals lately, right? They’ve started ramping up the deals in their Countdown to Black Friday, and in just a few minutes they have a huge batch of Skip Hop goodies coming up. (I see it that way because I have Prime; it may launch later for non-Prime member.)

I just keep that page open all day, now. Good stuff coming up!

“The biggest” vs. Actually The Biggest

So you know how Kohls has a “giant sale” just about every week? And every time they’re all: No, really, this is the biggest sale ever? You know I love Kohls and shop there all the time, but their sale-exaggeration does get a little much, after a while.

Well. In contrast, when Macy’s says This Is Our Biggest Sale Of The Season, Today Only, that’s actually true. Today—Tuesday, November 18th—actually is the largest sale Macy’s will put on this year. Bigger than Black Friday! Bigger than the day after Christmas! For real.

If you have holiday shopping to do, today’s the day to do it.

Everyone gets free shipping on $75+, and clearance is an additional 25% off. It looks like coupon code TXT15 may give you an additional 15% off on your $100+ purchase, too, though it may exclude things like Doorbusters (haven’t tested it yet; if someone uses it successfully, let us know). There’s printable extra savings coupons on the site, too, if you’d rather brave the store, but I’ll just enjoy this sale from riiiiight here. (Hey, it’s currently 24 degrees outside. I’m not going anywhere.)

More Minecraftery!

If you liked the LEGO Minecraft deal from the other day, you’ll probably be interested in this, as well: Right now Amazon has the Minecraft: The Complete Handbook Collection box set available for $19.18 (its lowest price ever). That’s under $5/book, and it’s sure to be a hit with avid Minecrafters.

The site lists these books as good for 8-12 years, by the way. I’d say better for the younger end of that range, but up to you.

Woohoo, new Minecraft Micro World on sale!

Hey, fellow Minecraft parents… remember the first Minecraft Micro World LEGO set, two years ago, and how it never went on sale? And how, last year, they released two more, and they never went on sale? Remember how some of us were suckers and paid full price because Minecraft and LEGO and happy nerdlings?

Good times.

But hey, Christmas just came early this year—the newest LEGO Minecraft Micro World offering, The End, is currently 30% off at Amazon! It’s just $24.49, and if your kid already has the three other Micro Worlds, well, doesn’t he need this one? Even though he’s a great big manchild teenager now? (Whoops. May have been thinking of my own situation, there. But whatever.)

Happy Minecrafting!

Have a very personalized Christmas

Ready to gear up for Christmas in earnest? Today (Tuesday, November 11th) only, all seasonal decor at Pottery Barn Kids is 30% off, and most of it has free shipping and free personalization, too.

Search on santa hat to find Santa hats (hello, Captain Obvious…) because they’re not showing up in the holiday section, for some reason. But $7 shipped for a personalized Santa hat seems like a crazy good deal to me!

It wouldn’t be weird if I bought Santa hats for my dogs, right…?

Kick off your week with Kohls

So it’s the start of a new week, and the last day of the big Veteran’s Day Sale over at Kohls. There’s tons of doorbusters, everyone gets automatic free shipping on $50+, and with their new Yes2You program, you can be earning points for free stuff all the time, not just when it’s time for Kohls Cash.

Even better: Everyone can use coupon code VETSDAY10 for $10 off $25+, and if you have a Kohls charge, you can also use code FALL20 for another 20% off. (Yeah, no matter what order you input them in, it’ll do the percentage off after the $10 off, but still, discounts are discounts.) No Kohls charge? You can use the $10 off code and THANKS8131 for another 15% off.

I guess I’ll go do some shopping, as my manchild recently assured me that he has “plenty of long-sleeved shirts that fit!” Plenty = 3. New math, I suppose.

Do you wanna build a snoooowmaaaan?

Are your kids obsessed with all things Frozen? (Don’t think the fact that mine are teens renders us exempt; they simply serenade each other with will you help me hide a body? instead.)

If you have little ones who love it, though, get on over to Tanga, today. They’ve got a box of 9 rolls of Frozen stickers available for just $4.99 (or $4.88 if you’re logged in and a frequent shopper there) with free shipping. (For reference: It’s still $10 at Amazon.)

This would be perfect for stockings, birthday parties, whatever. I mean, I draw the line at buying them for my teenage son, but you know what I mean.

Start making your list (and checking stuff off)

Ready to start holiday shopping in earnest? Right now Target is offering free shipping on every order, just because. I’m seeing some awesome clearance deals in bedding (entire bedding sets at great prices, so heads up if you’ve got a kid moving out next year), but really, there’s slashed prices all over the place.

And this way, you don’t have to find a parking spot or steer a cart around the store while small children run in front of you, shrieking. (I mean, unless you have small shrieking children of your own, in which case, I can’t help you.)
