40% off most items (maybe)

Okay, so there’s a one-day-only 40% off deal happening at Old Navy today (Wednesday, October 19th)—use code QUICK to get the discount. There are some exclusions—Everyday Steals, Hot Deals, Clearance—but I put some sale jeans in my cart and it didn’t work on those and I don’t know why. (I then followed it with a sale top and that worked. So… I dunno.)

If you can find the items where the code works, obviously it’s a nice deal.

As always, shipping is free at $50+ across the shared Gap family stores basket (that includes Gap, Banana Republic, and Athleta). The code is good until 11:59 pm Eastern, tonight.

It’s a Flash Sale at Kohls!

Ready to get some boots/outerwear? Shop today (Tuesday, October 11th) at Kohls through noon Central time to score some awesome deals—you can use Flash Sale code BUYNOW for an extra 25% off, plus you can stack it with coupon code GET20 for another 20% off (that one works on anything).

I’m not seeing a free ship code right now, but everyone gets free shipping on their $75+ order, or you can opt to pick up your order in-store for free. (As if I’ve ever gotten out of Kohls for under $75… but maybe you have greater restraint than I do!) Also, pro tip: Close to the free shipping, but not quite there? You know you can return items to your local store, right? I’m just sayin’.

40% seems to be the theme of the week

Okay, one more big Friends & Family discount for you before the weekend: Right now at Volcom, you can use coupon code VOLFAM for 40% off nearly anything (not snow gear, but it does work on sale items).

This is a brand my kids think is “cool” and I think is “overpriced.” (Using quotation marks prevents arguments! Try it!) With the coupon code and the sale items, it brings it down to “Okay, maybe you’ll get a couple of things for Christmas” range, for me.

Shipping is free on $29 before coupon, so getting free shipping is pretty easy. Happy shopping!

Kid growing too fast?

I know you are tired of hearing me lament the day my last kid finally outgrew The Children’s Place, but I am still bitter. It used to make my life so easy—just wait for a good sale, swoop in and get everything they needed. Easy-peasy.

Well, it’s a memory for me, but if you still have little or littlish ones, you can hop on over there today and enjoy 40% off all apparel and 30% off everything else, plus the Clearance is all at 50% off. Shipping is free on every order. This is a one-day thing (until the next one, anyway), so get on it. And—and maybe you won’t appreciate this, but I do—they used to only go up to size 14, and I see they go all the way to 16, now (including slim and husky options).

They have Halloween shirts, sure, but also their holiday dress-up options are in stock, so now’s a perfect time to buy coordinating outfits while you dream of taking a Christmas card picture that does not feature at least one child mid-meltdown. Okay, it’s possible I’m projecting….

Friends & Family savings at Lands’ End, today only

Today is a hard day for a lot of Americans, because last night there was a presidential debate which—speaking only for myself, of course—caused some of us to question the reality of our existence.

Political debate is one thing. Good bargains are another. Today I’m going to try (and probably fail) to stick to the latter.

So: Oh look! Over there, at Lands’ End! On the site they’ve got a 30% off coupon, but I’ll do you one better because I like you. Today (Tuesday, September 27th) only, use coupon code ENJOY40 with PIN 7260 for 40% off nearly everything, including clearance items. 40% off soothes all sorts of things, including political hangovers.

Also, for anyone who isn’t already worshipping at the altar of Lands’ End and has a tall/skinny kid: This is (still!) my go-to store for quality pants for kids of the string-bean variety.

End your weekend on a high (mystery) note

This post is sponsored by As always, all opinions are my own.

It’s almost Monday again, and that means (for me, anyway) spending tonight finishing all off the things I swore I was going to do last week. Whoops. Among those many things: my college student is still looking for a few things, and maybe I’m feeling nice enough to go shop for her. Maybe.

Enter Kohls, naturally. And even better, today they’ve got a a mystery coupon available worth 20%, 30%, or even 40% off your order! (You have to go through the link to get your unique coupon code.)

kohls-hex-chairNow: what to do, what to do? I got a 30% off code, which means this hexagon chair that would match the kid’s roommate’s chair would be just under $45, because it’s already on sale. I’d probably be very popular if I went ahead and got that. (For at least a few minutes, anyway.) (And then we’d be in the whole “how do we know which chair is which?” thing, or, who knows, maybe they’d go all southern on me and want them monogrammed. Seems unlikely, though.)

kohls-yoda-lampOn the other hand, I suspect that I would be even more popular if I went ahead and snagged this LEGO Star Wars Yoda desk lamp, because if I asked she’d tell me it was for little kids, but if I just bought it she would love it and be the envy of the dorm. (Hrm. Assuming no one else in her dorm already has one; she lives in the nerd dorm so it’s possible that would not be the case.)

Regardless, I’ve got until midnight Central time to shop, so I’m sure I’ll find something worthwhile to spend my savings on, whether for the kids or just for myself. And you can go get your code and do the same. The holidays are coming…. (And believe you me, if I’d gotten one of those 40% codes? I’d be buying everything!)

Stride over to this day of deals

If you love Stride Rite shoes for the kids, but don’t necessarily love the prices, well, today’s your day to save—they have almost a hundred different styles marked down to just $19.99, today only. Just use coupon code SHOESDAY on the eligible items.

Don’t wait, though, because when Monday’s over, so are these deals. And then where are you going to find a decent price on Star Wars sneakers? Exactly.

Again with the “one day” thing

I rather like that the folks at Macy’s don’t seem to understand the English language. They keep having these “One Day Sales,” each lasting at least two days, and occurring with regularity. That’s not how language works, Macy’s. But that’s fine! Because it means a ton of markdowns for us, so let’s just pretend we’re cool with it.

There are all sorts of deals and specials today (and tomorrow) only, plus you get free shipping at $25+, plus you can take an additional 20% off marked-down kids’ items with coupon code CUTE. Look for summer clearance for the best deals, obviously.

And if you miss this sale, well… probably there will be another one in a couple of weeks. Shhhh, don’t tell everyone.

While we continue to sweat…

… why not start thinking about winter? (Sure, that makes sense.)

If you have kids who need winter coats—or if you’re the awesome sort of person who buys ahead for the inevitable coat drives to come—check these out: Amazon has Big Chill Expedition jackets in both girls’ and boys’ versions, right now, starting at around $12. You’ll have to play around with the sizes/colors to find the best deals, but most of them are under $20.

And this is where I’ll confess that, yes, my high school senior is still wearing a boys’ sized parka in the winter, because that coat in 18/20 was about half the cost of the same one in a men’s size. These jackets don’t run quite that large (up to 18, in boys’, and just 14/16, in girls’), but enjoy the kids’ sizes while you can!
