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.

Go be a Champion (of savings)

Need some new workout gear, or just like comfy clothing? Hop on over to the Champion online clearance for some already great price reductions, and then save even more—use coupon code EXTRA40 for an additional 40% off and code ESHIPCH for free shipping on any size order.

I’m seeing things like ridiculously low prices on sports bras and other specialty wear, plus this is my favorite way to stock up on socks for the whole family. (Because everyone is always out of socks. Where do they go? I have no idea.)

Sizes and styles are limited, of course, but with discounts like these, that’s no surprise.

It’s a flash sale on everyone’s favorite summer shoes

Remember when we all just made fun of Crocs for adults but kept buying them for our kids and maybe a pair for ourselves “just for gardening” and then they started making all kinds of other styles and now they still make the ubiquitous squishy clogs but also things like real leather dress shoes? They’ve come a long way, baby.

Well, today (Thursday, June 7th) is the day to shop. They’ve put over 100 styles in a 24-hour Flash Sale, which means you can mix and match your favorites for the whole family and get 50% off everything. Free shipping on your $29.99 order, otherwise shipping is a flat $4.99.

I don’t want to tell you what to buy, but if you have a beloved chef/cook in your life and you don’t pick up a pair of these Muppets Swedish Chef clogs, just know that I will be pretty disappointed.

Kohls, Kohls, Kohls, Kohls, and also Kohls

It’s time for a new batch of Kohls coupons! Just in time for… well, okay, they have coupons all the time, so it’s “just in time” for pretty much whatever you need. Clothing! Outdoor furniture! Kitchen stuff! Whatever!

Right now they have specials and Door Busters galore, plus everyone earns $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 you spend. Kohls charge card holder can take an additional 30% off with coupon code MOM30, plus get free shipping on any size order with code FREE4MAY. Everyone can take an additional $10 off $50+ on qualifying Home items with code MOMSDAY10 (stacks with other percent-off coupons!), or use code SAVEMORE20 for an extra 20% off $100+ or 15% off, otherwise.

I’m sure I’ve shared this before, but one of my favorite things to pick up during these sales—either because we need more or because I need some cheap items to get me to the next Kohls Cash threshold—are these Big One pillows. At $4 apiece (that’s before coupons) they’re surprisingly good quality, and cheap enough that when they finally do flatten out, you don’t have to feel bad about replacing them.

Those of you starting to gear up your soon-to-graduate kids for the college adventure, toss those in your cart and then look around. There’s tons of bedding and towel deals, plus bed bug encasements (trust me, even if there aren’t bugs, you’ll feel better knowing your kid’s who-knows-what-came-before dorm mattress is hermetically sealed), foam padding, etc. You could knock out a big chunk of your shopping months ahead of schedule, cheap.

My kind of March Madness

Basketball, schmasketball—I’m more interested in a great sale. (Sorry, not sorry.) And today, Eddie Bauer is delivering, albeit a bit sneakily. Right now the only mention of a coupon on the site itself is a 40% off coupon in the clearance section, but we can do better: everything on the site (including clearance items!) is an additional 50% off when you apply coupon code MADNESS. [Edited to add: Okay, almost everything. Non-Eddie branded items are ineligible for the coupon.]

Shipping is free on $99+, or on $25+ if you have ShopRunner. (Do note that they look a the total after the coupon is applied.)

I have several pieces of Eddie clothing I really love, but the main draw for me is that they have a great assortment of Tall items for guys, if you’re in the market for those. With 50% off I think it’s probably time for some new shirts for my favorite guy.

It’s a super cyber-delic sale

Silly name aside, for whatever reason Old Navy is having a huuuuuuge (super cyber-delic, even) sale today. Get an additional 40% off everything—even already-reduced sale prices—automatically, plus coupon code FREESHIP will give you free shipping on your $25+ order, rather than making you get to the normal $50+ threshold.

Grab this cool tote for free, too, with code TOTALLY. (Add the tote to your cart, then use the code.)

If you’re dying for new items, well, 40% off is pretty nice. But really, scope out the clearance and save a bundle. But hurry—this sale is over tonight (Monday, March 12th) and items are selling out.

Have a little Kohls this weekend

Fun fact: Did you know that you can use your expired Kohls Cash in the store? It won’t work online, but if you go to the store and you’re within 10 days or so of expiration, they’ll still take it. Ask me how I know this! Yep, I screwed up, and it turned out that my inability to read a calendar was actually super useful—I found a bunch of 90% off discounts in-store I never would’ve gotten online. The fact that I ended up paying $.42 out of pocket was just the icing on the cake. (Seriously, the cashier was impressed with me. That’s always fun.)

But there’s another round of discounts and coupons out right now, so if you’re wanting to shop in-store or online, I’ve got you covered. Sale-wise, they’ve just done additional markdowns on holiday items, if you’re interested in stocking up for next year. Plus there’s various Bonus Buys and their semi-annual Intimates Sale is happening right now. Coupon-wise, you’ve got the usual suspects: 30% off and free shipping on any size order with your Kohls Charge with codes MARCH30 and FREESHIP, respectively. Stack codes INTIMATES10 for $10 off your qualifying $40+ lingerie purchase and/or MENSTYLE10 for $10 off your qualifying $50+ guys’ stuff purchase. And everyone earns $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent.

In the market for cookware? I’ve been stalking prices on this 12-piece Rachael Ray Cucina set for a while. Today’s price at Kohls is $170—still pretty inflated compared to Amazon’s current $109 price, but trust me, Kohls works out to be the better deal today. Why? Use the 30% off coupon code to bring it down to $119—already better than the Amazon price if you add in the $20 of Kohls Cash you earn!—and there’s also an available $50 mail-in rebate on the page which is Kohls-specific. Your final price is $69, or just $49 if you count the Kohls Cash. That’s… nuts.

Clearance, free shipping, and something for everyone

Y’all know that sometimes I forget to check sales at Children’s Place since my kids rudely became adult-sized and I can no longer put together an entire season’s wardrobe for them for around $50 (harumph). But then sometimes I remember to check and I’m all “Wait, look at all the stuff they have now!”

Today is one of those days.

Back in my day (you know, when dinosaurs roamed the earth…) the only adult-sized stuff they carried was pajamas, before the holidays. You could get matching jammies for the whole family, if you wanted. But apparently now they also carry adult t-shirts, with mom-and-me and dad-and-me options, plus whole-family options. Is it too early to think about Mother’s Day and Father’s Day? No, it is not.

Today everything is on sale and every order ships for free. May I humbly suggest that you buy your favorite father the pizza t-shirt and then get slice-of-pizza shirts for all the kids? Because that is hilarious and also really cheap today. Plus there’s Clearance items starting at around $2, for your regular kid-outfitting. Go!

Stack the codes, save even more

Here’s a pretty rare goody: Right now the President’s Day sale is on at Gap, and that means they’ve got tons of markdowns on the site, already, plus you can use coupon code PRESDAY to take another 20% off even sale items and get free shipping on any size order. But, if you’re buying something already on “regular” sale (meaning, not marked down just for this event; look for items with prices ending in .99 or .97), you can also use coupon code EVENBETTER for another 30% off!

Now—I know math is complicated—but this does not give you an extra 50% off sale prices, because you get one discount and then the other, so not the full 50%. But it does come out to around 44% off, and that’s still pretty good. Some of the sale items in Kids/Baby are ridiculously cheap when you stack the codes.

Want to shop some of the other Gap gamily stores? Old Navy is automatically taking 30% off your order, Banana Republic is doing an automatic 40% off, and even we-hardly-ever-do-sales Athleta is doing an extra 20% off sale items with coupon code EXTRA20. Bear in mind that all four sites share a basket, so if you can’t get up to the free shipping threshold elsewhere, grab a pair of toddler socks from Gap, use the codes, and your whole order will ship for free.
