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).

Labor Day savings have arrived at Rack

When you love high-end labels but hate high-end prices, you shop at Nordstrom Rack. And when you want to save even more, you shop at Nordstrom Rack when they’ve got all their clearance marked down with an additional 25% off.

Shipping is free if you spend $100+, otherwise it’s a flat $7.95 ($5.95 if ordering only jewelry/beauty items).

Pro tip: This is a great place to find deals on unusual bra sizes (actually how I started shopping there), but there’s tons of other bargains, too.

Denim for the kids, cheap

Ready for back-to-school? Shop denim for everyone from toddlers to big kids today at Children’s Place and pay just $6.99/pair for all of their basics. (Read: some of their “fancier” super-stretch and/or embellished options are more, but most jeans are $6.99.) Don’t forget that they recently added extended sizes, and they now go up to 16 in girls’ and 18 in boys’.

Shipping is free on every order, regardless of how much you buy. The Clearance section is full of goodies, too—I never did figure out how this store makes any money, regularly marking down things to just a few bucks. If your kids need clothes, get going.

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.

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.)
