If only the name-brand will do…

… I have an Instant Pot deal for you today!

(Look, I know there was a recent deal on a different brand, and in some—not very many—things I am a brand loyalist, so I don’t judge either way. Myself, I have not hopped on the pressure cooker bandwagon yet, so I have no opinion. You do you.)

Today one of Amazon’s Daily Deals is 30% off this Instant Pot DUO60 6 Qt 7-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker, bringing it down from $100 to $70 for one day only. It slices! It dices! It makes perfect julienned fries! Oh, wait. No it doesn’t. But it does do all sorts of stuff, and if you’re in the market, this may be the deal you’ve been wanting.

Like I said, I don’t quite grasp the attraction just yet, but I own five slow cookers, so again: I don’t judge.

Scoot over to Schoola

If there’s anything I like better than scoring some crazy deals at my local thrift stores, it’s definitely finding the same sorts of deals online so that I don’t even have to get dressed first. Today and tomorrow, shop Schoola and you can save even more—use coupon code COZY70 to take 70% off your purchase of pre-owned clothes for the whole family (coupon will not work on “new with tags” items). You can use the coupon on more than one order, looks like, although you need to get on it (it expires September 29th).

I will shamelessly admit to shopping for myself, there, more than for the kids, but in addition to everything else they offer, they used to be my favorite destination for “oh my gosh I need a prom/homecoming/fancy occasion dress, Mom!” emergencies. Why pay hundreds of dollars when you can go cheap and no one will ever know you didn’t buy it new?

Shipping is free on your $25+ post-discount order of up to 10 items. Go forth and score.

40% off for Friends and Family, today only

Do I ever pay full price at Lands’ End? Of course not, although it’s probably worth it. There’s always a sale or code to be had, and that’s when I swoop in.

Gone are the days when I needed to pick up new Squall jackets every season (Welcome to Georgia! Motto: Winter here is like spring everywhere else!), but they still have plenty of goodies I love. Somehow I almost missed their Friends & Family event this year, but they’ve extended it for one more day, which means you have all of today (Wednesday, September 27th) to stock up for winter or whatever. (Note: the code does not work on Sale/Clearance items, this time ’round. Sad trombone.)

Note: The code that’s showing on the site is good for only 30% off. This one will get you 40% off, so save even more and feel superior. Use code BUDDIES with PIN 6433. Shipping is free on your $50+ order, and remember you can still make free in-person returns at a local Sears store. (This is me not telling you to order extra just to get free shipping and then return the overage locally, this is just me mentioning that little factoid so that you may draw your own conclusions. Obviously.)

75% off clearance for the kids

Here they go again—right now Children’s Place is taking an extra 75% off everything in the clearance, and that means you can stock up on just about everything for pennies on the dollar.

Shipping is free. The sale is today (Tuesday, September 26th) only and deals are going fast, so don’t delay if you’re interested.

Soup it up

Okay, let’s pretend I’ve included my standard disclaimer here about homemade food and how much better it is than the premade stuff. I know! And you know. And sometimes it’s still more convenient to have soup in a microwaveable container for the dorm/office/days when you have lost the will to cook. I’m just sayin’.

This may be limited to Prime members, but right now Amazon has 8-packs of Campbell’s Chunky New England Clam Chowder and Campbell’s Chunky Sirloin Burger with Country Vegetables Soup available for $8.81 and $10, respectively, which is a pretty good price, already. A take-and-microwave lunch for around a buck? Not bad.

Both are available on Subscribe & Save, which means they can drop to as low as $7.49 and $10 each when you have 5+ items in your monthly delivery.

Soup and beverages are some of my favorite things to buy on Subscribe & Save because I feel like the free shipping alone on these heavy items is yielding a great deal. And to have a flat of easy meals hanging around? Well, that’s priceless.

Pressure cooking? Isn’t it all pressure cooking?

I love the moniker “pressure cooking,” because as far as I’m concerned, trying to feed your family is always pressure cooking, or maybe that’s just my family. Ahem.

Anyway, I know that Instant Pots are all the rage right now, though I have yet to succumb, myself. (I’m still over here with my 5 slow cookers, yo. I like the house to smell like dinner all day.) And there are periodic deals on ’em, sure, but if you’re looking only at the Instant Pot brand, you’re likely missing some deals.

Today, for example, Best Buy has this 6-quart Insignia pressure cooker marked down to $39.99 shipped. Why? I have no idea. When I went to price-compare it over at Amazon I found it listed at nearly $200 from a 3rd-party, which is nuts, but it makes me suspect it’s a slightly older model that’s been or is being discontinued. Regardless, the reviews are excellent, and the next closest model available in the Instant Pot line costs twice as much, so if I wanted one of these, I’d probably jump on this deal.

It’s a rare deal on top-shelf shoes for the kids

Personally, I never loved my kids enough to buy them shoes from Stride Rite. They had perfectly average feet and the prices there always made me feel a little faint. But I’ve heard that for kids with wide feet, or various orthotic issues, or even just kids whose parents are a lot nicer than me, Stride Rite is the place to get the best shoes for little ones.

Today (Monday, September 18th) they’re having a flash sale—select styles are just $19.99 with free shipping when you use coupon code SHOESDAY. I’m seeing eligible options that started at $60, so this is not the deal to miss if you’re into their shoes for your kids. It’s not just past-season stuff, either. There’s sandals, sure, but also sneakers and boots and dress shoes. Hundreds of options! Get going.

Got tweens/teens? Get what they want

If your kid want “cool” clothes, look no further than Tilly’s, and if you want those cool clothes at a reasonable price, go check out their clearance right now—nearly everything is an additional 50% off.

The site is advertising automatic free shipping at $59, but why not get free shipping on any order? Just use code DNFS. That will allow you to go ahead and pick up, say, some Unicorn Snot (actual product name!) (relax; it’s lip gloss) without paying shipping.

I love these Tilly’s sales for fashion sneakers and such, but mostly I love them for stocking stuffers. Because really, who doesn’t need Unicorn Snot?

Back to civilization… and Kohls

So. Hi! Things are slowly getting back to normal. Yesterday I threw away (almost) everything in the fridge and freezer and went ahead and cleaned said fridge/freezer while I was at it, and while I am grateful my family came out of everything relatively unscathed, I could’ve happily gone my whole life without discovering how disgusting our appliances were. But that’s okay, because everything is clean now, and we have shiny new milk and ketchup. And a few other things. Anyway!

But life goes on, and the sales at Kohls don’t pause for silly things like hurricanes. There’s bonus buys happening starting today, plus you can stack coupons and make it all even better. Here we go:

If you have a Kohls charge (and why wouldn’t you?), use coupon code SUNSET30 for an additional 30% off your order, plus code MVC4SEPT gives you free shipping on any size order.

If you don’t have a Kohls charge (are you new here?), you can use code HUGEDEAL for 15% off your order, plus you’ll get automatic free shipping at $75+.

Anyone can also stack code SEPTFORHIM for an extra $10 off your $50+ Men’s Big/Tall purchase, and/or code STYLE10 for an extra $10 off $50+ Womens/Juniors clothing, accessories, shoes, and beauty.

*deep breath* Bonus tip for Discover Card holders: If you go to your Discover Deals online and search for Kohls, they often have a “$10 off $30+” coupon available, which you can redeem by scanning into your Kohls app or just copying the digits. This deal always works like Kohls Cash, which means it’s $10 free, basically. The minimum purchase is not enforced and it shows up as Kohls Cash to use on any purchase. I no longer shop Kohls without checking for this bonus, first (yes, there’s one available right now).

Blast off to bigger savings?

Have you tried yet? The more you spend, the more you save, and while you’ll have to commit to spending a little bit of time on price comparisons—like anything else, sometimes the deals are really good, and sometimes they’re kind of meh—and I tend to use them for things like pop-tarts and mac-and-cheese cups for the dorms. If you’ve never used them, you’ll get an extra 15% off your first three purchases with code SAVE15, but that’s not actually what I wanted to tell you about.

Right now you can take an extra 30% off their Warehouse items with coupon code WAREHOUSE30, for a maximum discount of $100. What’s in their warehouse? Well, furniture and outdoor stuff, sure, but also smaller household items, and—take note, those of you who are doing dorm shopping—mini fridges and microwaves, too. Some of those are a great deal.

Pro tip: I generally shop them with an Amazon window open right next to it to do my price comparisons. I’ve found no rhyme or reason to why some items are deeply discounted and others aren’t, but I have been rewarded for my patience on multiple occasions. Definitely worth checking out.

(P.S. Shipping is free on $35+.)
