Shoes, shoes, shoes

Labor Day means sales, and you know I am nothing if not a keen finder of sales on shoes. So:

Today’s bonus Gold Box Deal is 8 different styles of Pearl Izumi running shoes, all at at least 50% off. I’m considering a pair of M3s, myself. That’s a hard price to beat.

All of the great Labor Day specials have already started over at, with deep discounts on darn near everything.

And at, coupon code SALE25 takes an extra 25% off anything that’s already on sale.

Happy long weekend, made happier with shoe deals.

Save extra at 6pm today

It’s another elusive coupon—shop today and save an extra 10% on your order until midnight with coupon code 6PMFB82720141047. That’s on top of today’s specials and the free shipping you get automatically.

It’s only 10%, but it’s rare, and if you were planning to get something, anyway….

I confess, Kohls got me today

I know, I know, there’s often a good batch of sales/deals/coupons at Kohls on a Wednesday, and that’s not new. But today they me laugh—everyone can save 20% on $100+ with code MARCHING or 15% on any size order with code BAND. We band parents have to take the humor wherever we find it, y’know.

Even better: Everyone gets free shipping on $50+, automatically, and everyone earns $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent. They’ve got the usual crop of sales and doorbusters going on, too, plus some great deals on Keurigs if you’re in the market for one of those.

A perfect day to Bon-Ton

Been over to Bon-Ton lately? Today’s the day to do it—save an additional 30% on almost everything with coupon code AUG14SAVE30 today only, plus stack it with code FREESHIP for free shipping on any size order. If you love Clinique, they’re also running a Clinique bonus (I love their little bonus pouches; so cute).

Remember, when they have a code like this, it does work on regular Clearance items, but it does not work on Yellow Dot Clearance. In other words: choose your items carefully.

(I totally stock up during these sales. The prices are hard to beat, and often when I’m shopping for the kids, something for me falls into my cart. Whoops!)

Happy Gapday to you!

Can you believe that Gap has been around for 45 years?? I feel… very old. (Like, almost as old as Gap, apparently.)

They’re celebrating today with a just-until-midnight discount—shop and spend $100+ and you can use coupon code BDAY to take $45 off your total. There’s tons of exclusions, so do read the fine print, but if the coupon covers some stuff you were wanting anyway, well, happy birthday to Gap and hooray for savings for you.

Back-to-school shoe time!

Need new shoes? It’s the perfect time to shop Famous Footwear; through the weekend they’re doing Buy 1, Get 1 Half Off, plus there’s coupons to make it even better! Use code SCHOOL33 for an extra 20% off if you’re a Rewards Member, or code SCHOOL39 for 15% off if you’re not. (The Reward Program is free, and you can sign up on the site, by the way.)

Shipping is a flat $4.50, or free if you’re a Gold Rewards Member, which is beyond even my shoe-loving status, but if you have a lot of feet to cover, I guess it could happen.

All the savings at Macy’s today

If you’re still back-to-school shopping, it’s an excellent day to hit up Macy’s—you can use coupon code LUCKYU to take 20% off clothing, and most other items are 15% off. That’s on top of all the sales they’re running right now, and the current Lancome bonus. (I doubt you’re buying Lancome for the kids—though if you are, hey, no judgment—but as long as you’re shopping, $35+ on Lancome today gets you a free 7-piece bonus gift, and if you spend $70+ on Lancome you get another 3-piece bonus on top of that.)

Shipping is automatically free on $99+, plus if you spend that much, returns are free as well. Of course, you can always return at your local story for free, too. And I don’t know about you, but if I can order stuff to the house for the kids to try on instead of dragging teenagers to the store, I don’t mind returning the extras one bit.

Timing is everything at Old Navy

I clearly have back-to-school clothing shopping on the brain, today. Here’s another good one: Right now Old Navy is allowing you to take an extra 30% off with coupon code AMPM, and that’ll work until noon Pacific time, at which point it will switch to giving you 20% off until midnight Pacific time. School uniforms, Everyday Steals, and Hot Deals are excluded, but Sale/Clearance items are not, so a little digging can pay off, here.

Shipping is free on $50+, and that’s across the whole shared-cart family of stores (including Gap, Banana Republic, Athleta, and of course any item from Piperlime in your cart ships your whole order for free).

[Edited to add: Looks like it's a Super Cash period, too---the more you spend, the more Super Cash you'll earn towards a future purchase!]

Deep discounts on young adult trends

I never know how to refer to the clothing styles of older teens/young college students. Young adult? Teen? Skater-chic? Hipster-lite? Whatever you call it, Tilly’s has it, and right now they’re offering automatic additional discounts of 25% – 50% off on the stuff already on sale. We’re talking stuff for the girls starting at just a couple of bucks, and for the guys at not much more than that. Stock up before school starts, and they’ll think you’re the cool mom.

Shipping is a flat $8 up to $30, and after that, it’s free.

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.
