It’s President’s Day at Macy’s

I guess Macy’s is closing a bunch of stores around the country, but you wouldn’t necessarily know that from looking at their online site. Deals abound, and today they’ve got coupons, too.

Here’s the breakdown:
* Everyone gets free shipping on $49+, or you can add any Beauty item to your basket for free shipping on any size order, or you can look at free pickup at your local store (if you still have one).
* Apply coupon code PRES25 for $10 off your $25+ order (some exclusions apply).
* Apply coupon code PRES for 10% or 15% off your entire order (department dependent; some exclusions apply).

Coupon codes cannot be stacked, so use the first one for smaller orders or the second one for larger orders. And don’t miss the offers on the splash page, too—tons of clearance (which is an extra 25% off) and other markdowns worth checking out. (I’m sure it comes as a huge surprise that I’m scrolling through the shoe clearance right now….)

Time to clean up at Kohls

How much do I love a big sale and coupons at Kohls? So much. It might be my favorite thing.

Today they’ve got discounts galore, plus Kohls card holders can use coupon code LOVE30 for an additional 30% off and code FEB4FREE for free shipping on any size order. Anyone can use coupon code BABYSALE20 for an additional 20% off baby items (it stacks with a general percentage off coupon, too), or code SAVE15 for 15% off everything, and you’ll get free shipping on $75+. Everyone earns $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent right now, too, so you’ll be ready to shop the next sale.

One of their Doorbusters today is the Shark Navigator Swivel for $129 before coupons, which is already a nutty good deal. (For reference: Amazon has it for $220, with a 4.5 star average rating.) That vacuum for under $90 is a steal.

Go forth and save!

Pop up for savings

Today is the perfect day to pick up anything and everything over at Macy’s, because they’re having a Valentine’s Day Pop-Up Sale. What’s it mean? Well, discounts all over the place, an extra 25% off clearance, free shipping on $49+, and—my personal favorite—it’s also Lancome Beauty Bonus time, where $35 spent gets you a 7-piece gift.

Keep in mind, too, that any order ships for free if it includes a beauty item. I’m not suggesting you try to game that to your advantage, I’m just saying that they have lip pencils for $4.50 and that’s less than shipping. Ahem.

‘Tis the season to stock up on kids’ clothes

It may still be gray and dreary outside, but that’s fine—spring and summer will come before you know it, and there’s plenty of last year’s warm-weather clothes in the current clearance over at Children’s Place. (There’s also tons of cold-weather clearance, which you can either buy for now because your kids pulled that tricky winter break growth spurt move, or just stock up for next year.)

Most clearance is at 75% off, and everything else is at 50% off, and today there’s free shipping, too.

I know I whine about this every time I post a Children’s Place deal, but it is a lot less fun to have children in adult sizes. I miss the days of assembling entire wardrobes for them at one of these sales for, like, $50. Enjoy it while you can!

Another chance to please the teens

One more round of deep markdowns to cap off the holiday season, I guess—right now at Tilly’s, they’re taking an additional 50%-70% off clearance prices, automatically. You can also use coupon code SLICKFS for free shipping on any size order, which means that even if you’re not buying a lot, it’s worth taking a look.

Yes, they have all the cool skater gear and hip sneakers your young adults might want, but they also have things like phone cases and GoPro accessories. (Don’t ask me why. I have no idea.)

Note that it’s not all winter clearance, either—they have a fair number of shorts/tank tops/etc. in there, too. And this is a nice distraction from… everything else in the world right now.

For the young and fashionable

I want you to know that I am some kind of hero, truly, because after Christmas, while my oldest was home, I went to the mall with her. Not only that, I went into stores like Charlotte Russe, where I am both too old and too large for everything they sell. Where is my medal??

Anyway, they’ve now expanded all their markdowns online, too, with ridiculously low clearance prices where you can save another 20% with coupon code 2017SALE. If you must peruse the non-clearance items, no worries—everything’s at least 30% off, too. And shipping is free on any size order!

(But let’s not forget the real winner, here. The real winner is anyone who now doesn’t have to go to the mall with their teenager. You’re welcome.)

It’s a crazy good sale at LOFT

I will never miss an excuse to shop a good sale at LOFT, even though my need for “business casual” clothing is now greatly outweighed by the need for “clothing that will make me feel like I didn’t wear my pajamas all day today.” Details.

Anyway! Right now they’re having a huge winter clearance, which means it’s the perfect time to pick up a few new things with a minimum of guilt. For example, did I need this Snowbird Back Pleat Blouse? First of all, don’t even try to tell me it’s not adorable, because it is adorable; and second of all, when the original price was $60 and I just got it for under $15? Um, yes. I needed it. The end.

Spend $125+ and your shipping is free, or it’s a flat $8.95, otherwise. I actually paid shipping, because this sale was so good, I couldn’t get anywhere near the $125. I’m okay with that.

Happy New Year!

Hey, it’s 2017. I hope you and yours had an excellent holiday season. I took a break—maybe I should’ve mentioned that before I did it?—and enjoyed having my big kid home from college and my husband around. I haven’t taken the whole week between Christmas and New Year’s off for… ummm… at least a decade. Probably longer. It was awesome.

Anyway! We now segue into my second favorite season: Deep clearance at Dillard’s. Right now items are up to 65% off, and while this is not where I’ll typically turn for issues of growth spurts (that’s what Kohls is for!), it is where I’ll go for really nice outfits, good shoes/outerwear, etc. Dillard’s clearance is never going to be bargain-basement, is my point, but this sale is sort of like a once-a-year expansion at Nordstrom Rack, if that makes sense.

I think we got my daughter’s graduation dress there last year during this sale. It’s that sort of thing.

So, if you’ve got a graduation or a wedding or other special occasion coming up, check it out.

I’d like one of everything, please

Was there ever a store that made me make more obnoxious squeeeeeing noises than ModCloth? Probably not. Everything there is so pretty and quirky and wonderful. I want to buy the whole store.

I can’t do that—not until I win the lottery, anyway, and since I never play, that’s gonna be a long wait—but today I (and you) can save 40% on a whole slew of seasonable favorites, as part of their Twelve Days of Flash Sales. Spend $75+ and your order ships for free, too.

I’ve been a pretty good girl, this year. Maybe I’ll just go browse a little….

Skater chic for the teens

I only shop at Tilly’s for my kids when they have a huge sale—because I’m a cheapskate—but when they do, I do, because they have so many of the “cool” things I otherwise refuse to pay for. (Pro tip: They often have ridiculously good deals on trendy sneakers—think Nike, Converse, Vans, and more—if you catch them on one of these sales.)

Anyway! Right now there’s an extra 50% markdown on everything in the Clearance, plus the more spend, the more you save. Spend $75 and $15 comes off at checkout; spend $100 and it’s $20; spend $125 and it’s $25. Shipping is free on your $59+ order, otherwise rates start at $8.
