Stack the Veterans Day deals at Kohls

The true meaning of the holiday aside, Kohls will grab any excuse to practically pay you to shop. So get ready to save:

There’s doorbusters galore, plus everyone gets $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent, and free shipping on your $50 purchase automatically. Everyone can use the $10 off $25+ coupon code VETERANS and/or the $10 off $50+ Home coupon code NOVHOME10, and Kohls credit card holders can also stack coupon code APPLE30 for an additional 30% off and code MVCFREENOV for free shipping on any size order! See? I wasn’t kidding about them practically paying you to shop. I’m pretty sure this is the sale I used to buy our Fiestaware last year (yep, that was our Christmas present to each other, because nothing says romance like new dishes).

Get the deals before the coupon codes expire tonight!

Save big for the kids, plus jammies for the whole family!

I think I suffered from a bit of sale fatigue with them for a while, but now I’m here to tell you that if you skip today’s sale at Children’s Place you are missing out. Not only is everything at least 40% off and all Clearance at least 75% off, today, and not only is shipping free on every single order, but they’ve also got all of their family holiday pajamas in stock and on sale—go get them now, before everything’s sold out in a month.

Better still, either sign up for their emails (you should get a pop-up when you visit the site) or for text alerts (you can always turn them off later…) and you’ll get a code for $10 off your $40+ purchase.

Longtime readers know I’m still bitter that my kids had to go and turn into adults who can’t wear Place clothes anymore… but do I still buy the (adult-sized) matching pajamas there? I sure do. If your kids are still little, enjoy all the matching holiday clothes. They’re adorable.

Geeky shirts, silly shirts, awesome shirts

Haven’t been over to Shirt.Woot for a while? Me neither, but I’m always delighted when I remember to hop back on over there.

Today’s the perfect day to do it, too—take an additional 35% off your shirt order there with coupon code WOOTIGN35, plus you’ll get free shipping on every order!

I own a wide assortment of Woot shirts, but I feel like I can always use a few more, right…? (Don’t answer that.)

But I never miss a Chaco sale

Hello! Still not dead! Just, you know, not doing much deal-hunting these days. I could offer a long litany of explanations/excuses, but you don’t care, anyway, and that is not why I’m here. I’m here because right now there are all kinds of discounts happening at Chaco, and if you—like me—live in a hippie-dippy college town, these are pretty much the unofficial footwear of your people. I finally succumbed and bought my first pair last year and they are amaaaaaaazing. I don’t know why I waited so long. (Wait. Yes I do! I waited because they’re expensive and rarely go on sale.)

Anyway, right now they’ve got a ton of items in the Sale section, plus coupon code CHACOSEPT30 takes another 30% off ‘most everything. Shipping is free, too (in fact, with the coupon, even Express shipping is free). If you don’t need the absolute latest style, this is a great way to scoop up some favorites for about half price.

Now that I’ve bought my family some sandals, I’m going back into my cave.

Shoe-bee-doo-shoe

Love the comfort and durability of Clarks shoes? I do, and while I realize this causes my kids to tell me I am old, I do not care. I especially do not care because today they’re having a flash sale, and that means an additional 40% off sale styles with coupon code FLASH40. Shipping is free.

Some cute new sandals for me, some durable work shoes for the husband. Also, they have some pretty adorable socks, too. And even some winter boots on sale. (And purses!! I didn’t know they did purses.) It’s a sale worth checking out for sure.

Friends & Family and even better savings

If you hop on over to Eddie Bauer right now, you’ll see they’re doing their Friends & Family promotion—coupon code SHARE takes an additional 40% off almost everything, plus you’ll get free shipping on your $49+ order. 40% off is nothing to sneeze at, especially when you use it on Clearance items, so I’m definitely not knocking that sale at all. There’s great bargains to be had.

But! If you’re ready for winter to hurry up and get here, allow me to make it even better for you: Women’s boots and outerwear already on clearance can be reduced by an additional 60% when you use coupon code EXTRA60, instead. 60% off clearance on some of the highest-rated jackets/gear around? That’s enough to make even me wish for winter.

Top-shelf kicks for clearance rack prices

Helllooooooooo! I have been away. (And busy with these people in my house who like to call me “Mom” as if that means I owe them something. Sheesh!) But today I have spotted a crazy deal those of you whose offspring are still miniature are likely to appreciate.

Today (Wednesday, August 15th) only, check it out: Stride Rite is having a Flash Sale on over a hundred different styles. If it’s in the sale, it’s $19.99—no fooling! And sure, there’s plenty of sandals because that’s end-of-season stuff, but also sneakers, dress shoes, and even boots. When else can you get ergonomic shoes for kids that started at $52 for just under $20?

Shipping is free on $30+, so buy a couple of pairs and you’re all set. I’ll just be over here all bitter that my kids have bigger feet than I do….

Heads up for your dapper dudes

As a parent, I know the day each of my kids crossed over from kids’ to adult sizes was a very solemn one. Sure, sure—passage of time, sunrise/sunset, etc. Forget all that. The issue for me was that suddenly everything cost at least twice as much. Heartbreak!

Today (Monday, July 30th) Gap is making it up to me and other moms of teenage boys (and even full-adult males, I guess) with a huge sales event. While coupon code EVERYTHING will take an additional 20% off just about, well, everything, as well as giving you free shipping on any size order, many men’s shirts and pants will also drop by 50% when you apply secret coupon code EXTRA!

Note that the codes can both be used, but the discount will not stack. That is, apply EXTRA first for 50% off, then EVERYTHING to also get free shipping (you won’t save another 20%, but let’s get greedy).

Stock up for your young men, or for yourself, or whomever. With these prices, it hardly matters.

Comfy Aerie undies, cheapest ever!

Oh, I know, we all get a little uncomfortable talking about underthings, but when has that ever stopped me before? In fact, I usually get all jazzed when Aerie does their 10 panties for $30 promo, but today it’s even better! Right now they’ve got select panties at 10 for $25 (you do have to buy 10 to get the promo price, but what a good way to make sure you throw out the raggedy ones, right?).

I like to think of Aerie panties as high-end mall-store quality at “come in a plastic multibag at the Big Box Store” price.

Shipping is free if you have Shoprunner or spend $50+ (pro tip: there’s lots of other stuff on sale, too), otherwise it’s $7.

Heads up, ladies who need officewear

I have a friend who recently started a new job, one which requires her to dress a lot more “officeworkerish” than her old job. I have been delighted to go shopping with her to show her that “office” is not synonomous with “black.” (Hey, I love black. Just not all black. It’s an office, not a funeral.) I know, it can be hard for some of us to shed our jeans and t-shirts and/or branch out in our preferred color palettes, but it can be done.

One brand I love for this stuff is Ann Taylor, though I’ll admit to not being too wild about their prices. (Yes, yes: LOFT has better prices to begin with, and tons of sales.) Every now and then, though, the regular Ann Taylor store has a huge sale. If you need to dress for work or just get out of the jeans-and-tees rut, hop on over there today—in addition to some very deep markdowns, coupon code MAKEWAVES takes another 50% off and gets you free shipping on any size order.

Whether you want to pick up a cardigan or need a whole new wardrobe, these prices will make it a lot easier to manage.
