Soon, they’ll pay us to shop there

I feel like the natural evolution of Kohls deals is leading us to a place where we won’t even have to spend anything; they’ll just hand us merchandise (and possibly cash…) just for walking in the door.

A couple of weeks ago, they sent me a $13 Kohls-Cash-esque coupon for having had a Kohls charge card for 13 years. (Related: Hi, I’m old.) Then last week they sent me $10 bonus Kohls Cash for… I don’t even know why. And then they rolled out a new batch of coupons. So clearly the thing to do was go buy myself something pretty, but instead, I went and bought my kid underwear, because I’m That Mom. (Listen, I made a huge mistake last year. I bought my kid some fancy underwear on clearance, and of course now it’s the Best Underwear Ever and I am not paying retail to acquire underwear for my child that’s twice as expensive as my underwear. Between my free $23 and a sale and the current 30% off coupon, however, I did snag some more for almost nothing.)

If you have bonus money to spend, good on you, but even if you don’t, it’s Back To School Sale time and new coupons are out and you’ll earn $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 you spend. Kohls charge card holders can use coupon code FRIENDS30 for 30% off and code SHIPBTS for free shipping on any size order. You can also stack those with codes BTS10 for $10 off your $50+ kids/juniors/young men’s purchase of clothing and accessories, and/or INTIMATES10 for $10 off your $50+ qualifying purchase of undergoodies (totally a word).

No Kohls charge card? You’re a Luddite, but you can use code GET15 for 15% off, and you’ll get automatic free shipping on your $75+ purchase, or you can ship any size order to your local store for free.

Pack it up, at half off

If you love Lands’ End like I do, and you’re still doing back-to-school shopping (don’t laugh, northeners—here in the south school has already started!), get on over there today for huge savings. Today (Tuesday, August 8th) they’re offering half off all backpacks and lunch boxes with coupon code BACKPACK50 and PIN 7476. You’ll get free shipping, too!

We used Lands’ End backpacks for a big chunk of my kids’ schooling, and their guarantee is amazing. Have a problem? Give them a call and you’ll get a replacement. We once got a free replacement/upgrade when a bag ripped long after that style had been discontinued. It’s truly money well spent even at full price, so at half off, it’s a crazy bargain.

Please note that you cannot get a replacement simply because your child left a smashed banana in the bottom of the bag for the entire summer. I mean, I assume. Ahem.

Back to school clothes shopping? Check!

If you dread hitting the mall (dear lord, I’d rather do almost anything else) to outfit your spawn for the upcoming school year, you already know you can get most of it done right from your computer. But if you need to stretch your dollars and still meet the kids’ desire for fashion, don’t forget to add Schoola to your shopping rotation—they’ve got gently used clothes are great prices, plus your purchases help support local schools.

They’re a great deal at any time, but today only (Monday, July 31st), the site is advertising a 60% off code. Pretty great, right? Let me make it even better: Use coupon code HEAT for 75% off, instead. It won’t work on new items, but you can’t beat the savings on the rest.

Don’t forget that they carry adult sizes, too. I’m able to knock out a ton of shopping for my college kids, here, as well as picking up a few things for myself (hey, I’m working hard, I deserve something nice, right?).

Shipping is free on your $25+ order, or $6.99, otherwise. Happy shopping!

Even though I don’t understand this WKND

Uhhhhh… I’m not entirely sure what’s going on at Macy’s these days… but I do know that right now they’re having a “SUPER WKND SALE” even though 1) it’s Wednesday and 2) “WKND” is not a word.

But whatever, right? Use coupon code WKND for extra savings on top of the deals, and even better, this Summer Beauty Sampler is currently marked down to just $6.99 (and it’s a $31 value!), plus if you buy it you’ll get free shipping on your entire order.

Considering that you’d pay about $5 just for that tiny container of Philosophy Purity (not knocking the product, which I love, just the stupidity of tiny bottles with big prices…), the price is really a ridiculous bargain. Plus I’m sure you can find something else you want there but wouldn’t want to pay shipping for….

Almost missed this Shirt.Woot awesomeness

Happy 10th birthday to Shirt.Woot! To celebrate, today only (Thursday, July 20th), they’re offering $10 off your $20+ Shirt.Woot purchase, plus free shipping. (Savings show up at checkout.)

This is the perfect opportunity to pick up a couple (or ten…) geeky t-shirts for you or those in your family who enjoy such things. My son, for example, sees no reason to acquire shirts anywhere else….

Is it time to head to Kohls? Of course!

Is it ever a bad time to head to Kohls? Probably not, but during alllllll the coupons and sales is definitely the best time, and that time is right now.

Of course it goes without saying, by now, that you should have a Kohls card. If you do, use coupon code BBQ30 through July 23rd for 30% off your entire order, plus coupon code FREE4JULY for free shipping on any size order. There’s tons of Door Busters available on the web site, and everyone earns $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent.

No Kohls card? Who are you?? Okay, spend more money if you like, weirdo. You can use coupon code SAVE15 for an additional 15% off, anyway, and you’ll get automatic free shipping on $75+. Also anyone can stack code HOME10 for an additional $10 off a $50+ qualifying home goods purchase.

(Pro tip: Have a kid going off to college and you’re just now finishing dorm shopping? There are tons of good bedding/bath deals in the Door Busters, including their Big One gel memory foam pad, which I highly recommend.)

Glue sticks for years (well, days, anyway)

Helloooooo! I went on a trip this week and basically completely missed Prime Day. That’s sad, right? It really wasn’t, though. I got to see a bunch of cool stuff and eat a ton of amazing food and I got to hang out with my husband while doing all of those things, so I think I came out ahead.

Anyway, now that I’m back, I’m over here laughing about how I will never again need to buy an entire case of Elmer’s glue sticks—hooray for college kids, who instead apparently need tuition and grocery money, but hey, at least they don’t need glue sticks—but if you do, you should buy those ones I linked at Amazon, because you can get a case of 30 for $7.88 shipped, right now.

Buy them for all your kids. Buy them for the neighbor’s kids. Buy them for your favorite teacher. It doesn’t really matter; if someone will use them, you’d be hard-pressed to find them for less. And as we all know, only Elmer’s will do.

Time to stock up at Children’s Place

Ready to stock up for next year, or your kiddo had a growth spurt this summer? Assuming your kids are small(ish) (read: not adult-sized), get on over to Children’s Place right now to enjoy 80% off all the Clearance and 50% off everything else. Plus shipping is free on every order, so whether you buy a little or a lot, you’re saving. While we all know they have tons of sales, this particular one is a today-only deal.

I see that they finally extended their sizes so that you can go all the way up to size 16—they didn’t have that when mine were little, so enjoy it now. There’s no cheaper place to pick up the basics the kids need. Basically this store is the only reason I miss my kids still being little.

Swim away with this deal

Last year’s swimsuits not feeling so comfy? Did your kid have the audacity to have a growth spurt right after you bought her a new suit? That’s okay—Lands’ End is here for you. Through 11:59 pm tonight (Monday, June 26th) you can take 40% off regular and sale priced swimwear for the whole family with coupon code SAILING and PIN 1100.

Shipping is a flat $8 or free on your post-coupon total of $50+. I’ve never in my life had a problem spending $50 at Lands’ End, but you do you….

Clearance on the clearance, only for today

We don’t have one locally—I think we’re in the wrong part of the country—but I’m always delighted when I remember that Bon-Ton exists. It’s sort of like Macy’s, if you’re unfamiliar. Anyway, yes, they always have sales, but today (Friday, June 9th) is an unusual day: usually their yellow-dot clearance is excluded from any further markdowns, but today, you can use coupon code YDFLASHJUN9 for up to an additional 25% off those items. That’s awesome, because there are literally tens of thousands of items already marked down and just waiting for that additional savings. Use it on clothing, home goods, jewelry, whatever you need. (Also, code JUNLPSTRS17 will take an additional up to 25% off other sale items, but it has a ton of exclusions, so good luck finding something it works on.)

Shipping is automatically free on $75+, or on $25+ if you have ShopRunner. Or add any beauty item to your bag and get free shipping on your entire order with code BEAUTY.
