J. Crew for those not independently wealthy

I’ll confess that I sometimes wonder who, exactly, is buying the full-price items at J. Crew. Then I wonder what they do for a living. And sometimes—rarely, but sometimes—I wonder if they’ll adopt me. (Hey, imagine the difference in some of life’s stressors if you were the sort of person who could routinely drop $70+ on a t-shirt. I’m just saying.)

Anyway! I’d rather shop at the J. Crew Factory Store, and I’d especially rather shop there a time like now, when all the clearance is an additional 50% off with coupon code EXTRA50.

That means things like a $63 plastic “statement necklace” is now just $7. (It does not, however, help you if you cannot figure out why in the world you would want something called a statement necklace. Guilty.)

Shipping is free on $100+, otherwise it’s a flat $5.

It’s a great day to Kohls

Break up the monotony of your week this Wednesday (it is Wednesday, right?) with some shopping over at Kohls—their summer sale is on, plus you can redeem your Kohls Cash from the last earning period.

Everyone gets free shipping on $75+, and Kohls card holders can use code JULYMVC for free shipping on any size order, plus coupon code BEACH30 for an additional 30% off. No Kohls card? You can still use coupon code SUNNY for an extra 15% off.

Looks like they’ve added a bunch of stuff to the clearance, too.

If you love Justice and Brothers…

… well, then, I’m sorry that I’ve missed posting some of their recent flash sales. (A lovely reader told me about some great deals she scored on the last one, but I didn’t see it until it was over. Whoops.)

But the good news is that today at Justice and Brothers they’re doing it all over again—it’s a flash sale that ends tonight, and coupon code 738 takes 40% off and then another 20% off. On clearance items, that means you’re looking at about 80% off altogether, after discounts.

Yeah, their stuff is pricey, and yes, the 40% code is something they do pretty much all the time. But with a sale like this, you can score some decent deals and make your kid happy. Plus… they carry school uniform apparel, too.

Get your jeans on (for less)

There’s a huge end-of-season sale going on right now at Levi’s, with tons of markdowns already in place, and coupon code EXTRA50SALE will save you an additional 50% on those sale items ending in .90 or .97, too. (You may need to go through colors/sizes to find which items qualify.) We’re talking genuine Levi’s for $10; it doesn’t get much better than that.

(Note that the code displayed on the site is 40% off with EXTRA40SALE; you’re special, though, so you can use the 50% off code, instead.)

Shipping is free on $100+, otherwise it started at $7.50.

Heads up, Okabashi fans

If you love Okabashi sandals—and what’s not to like about beach shoes that are BPA-free, recyclable, and dishwasher safe, really?—through July 10th you can scoop some up on the cheap. Just use coupon code UPSV67C2 for free shipping on any order, plus code JUL40OFF for an additional 40% off.

This is a great way to either try them out or expand your collection. Or to nab some summer shoes for teenagers whose feet won’t stop growing. Either way.

Happy 4th of July!

Hey, if you take a break from setting things on fire at some point today (food or explosives; I don’t judge), you might want to check out the $17.76 Sale going on over at Plenty of ridiculous discounts to be had there, just keep an eye on the original price to see if it’s really a great deal.

And if there’s nothing you want there, they’re also doing a rare home goods sale. Lots of Le Creuset deals, so I’m trying very hard not to look….

OMGoodness the cuteness!

Right now there are a ton of Seafolly markdowns happening at Amazon (they’re an Australian company that mostly makes cool swimwear), but if you have a little girl, please go buy one of these Ballerina Fairy Tutus immediately. They’re adorable, and marked down to just $13.30. (They claim the original price was $55, but who knows.)

I would totally buy one for my daughter, I love them so much, but they only go up to size 6X and she’s 16… sooooo… yeah.

(There’s tons of other Seafolly deals there, too. But the fairy wings!! Too adorable.)

Get your swim on

If you haven’t outfitted the family in swim gear for the summer yet, today’s the day to get on over to Lands’ End—it’s the last day of their 40% off Swim Event. This, of course, means that a lot of stuff is more than 40% off, but the stuff that wasn’t on sale before is now at least 40% off.

I shamelessly love all things Lands’ End Swim, both for fit and durability. I think I’ve only once had to call them about a piece that didn’t hold up as well as I thought it should (and they replaced it right away, because their guarantee is awesome), but for the most part, nothing leaves the house until the kids outgrow it. Sturdy stuff for them, slender suits that don’t look like grandma suits for me. Love!

(Shipping is automatically free on $50+. Don’t forget that you can return unwanted items to your local Sears, too.)

Half off at LOFT

If you love LOFT but hate their prices, today’s the perfect day to shop—coupon code FIFTY takes half off of just about everything, even items already on sale or clearance.

True, there’s plenty of “clearance” where the pre-coupon price is only a few bucks cheaper than the original price, but there’s also a slew of stuff that’s 50% – 75% off pre-coupon, yielding tremendous savings. You just have to dig a little.

Shipping is a flat $8.95, or free on $125+. (And remember that so long as they’re not marked “Final Sale,” items ordered online can be returned to your local store.)

It’s your last chance for big deals

Alert reader Dawn helpfully pointed out that in the current Coldwater Creek bankruptcy proceeding, today is the very last day to shop them online. (Thanks, Dawn!) There are bargains galore, though the spot for a coupon code is conspicuously absent; I guess you don’t get to save extra when they’re going out of business.

For those who are worried about missing them, take heart—I suspect they will be gone for a bit while they restructure, but they’ll be back more likely than not. In the meantime, enjoy the sale!
