National Free Shipping Day? Okay!

Honestly, it’s not like I normally have a problem getting to the minimum shipping threshold at the Gap family of stores—between the shared cart between Gap, Old Navy, and Banana Republic and the sorts of clothes I’m most often buying for my family it’s not a problem—but I’m sure not going to turn down my chance to pick up a few last-minute items on sale and with free shipping. So hop to it, today (Friday, December 14th) only!

Use coupon code SHIPDAY across all their sites to ship any size order for free. Old Navy has $8 holiday sweatshirts, tons of markdowns, and coupon code MORE will take 20% off any order of 30% off $75+. Banana Republic is taking an automatic 40% off everything and an additional 10% off sweaters. And Gap has up to 50% off everything, automatically, a slew of “mystery deals,” plus coupon code GIFTS takes another 20% off.

Honestly, what are you waiting for?

Is it Kohls time again? You betcha

Hello! Did I run off and leave you last week? I apologize. I’m in a show right now and last week was tech and then opening weekend and, well, if you’re not a theater person the easiest way I can describe it is that the week before a show opens is like cramming for finals and having your first baby all rolled up in one. Exhilarating! Amazing! But also exhausting! So. If it makes you feel any better, I also haven’t fed my family for a week. (See? Doesn’t feel so bad now, right?)

Anyway! I’ve slept and I’m back. And so is Kohls, right on time with the last big sale where you can expect to get shipping in time for Christmas. Eeeeeverything is on sale, of course, with endless pages of doorbusters, $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 you spend plus free shipping on $50+, and then you can stack up the coupons to make it even better.

Kohls charge card holders can use coupon code JOY30 for an extra 30% off, and code DECFREEMVC for free shipping on any size order; everyone can use code USAVEMORE for 15% off any order or 20% off your $100+ order, plus—and I think this may be a first—coupon code HOME15 takes an additional 15% off most kitchen/dining items and it stacks with other percentage off coupons. So if you’re wanting a big-ticket kitchen item and you’re a card holder, you can use both JOY30 and HOME15 together. (Do remember that 30% + 15% does not equal 45% off, because they’ll take the 30% first and then the 15% off the remainder, but still, savings are savings.) Be aware that the extra home savings are only good through 11:59 tonight (Monday, December 10th).

I’m done shopping but, uh, I should probably go poke around just to see if there’s anything I forgot, right? Right.

If they don’t make you laugh, check your pulse

Honestly, I came to tell you that Tillys is having a big ol’ flash sale today—30% off tons of items, with an additional 30-50% off items already on clearance, plus free shipping on every order. I mean, that alone is worthy of a post, especially if you have tweens or teens. But. Y’all. I have always purchased Vans from Tillys because they have great sales even on the limited edition and licensed lines, and my kids do appreciate cool shoes. Never in my wildest imaginings, though, did I know that this morning I would run across these Hulk Vans slip-ons. Please look at them for a minute. I promise they’ll make your day better.

My manchild needs those, right? Especially when you consider that Tillys has just about all sizes in stock, and should you even be able to find them elsewhere, they’re gonna cost a lot more than $30. (For reference: they don’t even have the size I need at Amazon, but the closest I can get would cost me $65. No thanks!)

No joke, I ordered them almost an hour ago and I’m still laughing.

Cyber Monday at Target

Is there ever a time I don’t need something at Target? Probably not. If you don’t need gifts, heck, the additional 15% off nearly everything today (not to mention the free shipping on any size order) is reason enough to stock up on all the regular stuff you’d be buying, anyway. There’s all kinds of sales and deals happening, too.

And if you are looking for a gift for that impossible-to-buy-for person, may I suggest a gem that’s sure to either delight or infuriate? Target has this Ravensburger 18,000-piece puzzle (NOT A TYPO) marked down to $60, with another 15% taken off of that, so it’s just $51 shipped. (For reference, your cheapest option at Amazon is $165.)

Or you could just buy Nyquil or whatever, I guess. But man, I am really intrigued by that puzzle.

It wouldn’t be Black Friday without shoe deals

How did I almost make it to lunchtime without a shoe deal roundup??? I’m slipping. Need shoes for the family? Check it out:

Speaking of slipping, I of course just bought my fast-food-working kid some SafeTstep kitchen shoes at Payless last week when they were 40% off, feeling very smug, but today the entire store is 50% off, plus you only need to spend $25+ to get free shipping.

While I’m a little miffed that 6pm.com isn’t doing their typical “new deal every hour” thing today, they did put out coupon code BLKFRIYAY for an additional 10% off their already crazy good deals, plus right now every order ships for free.

Famous Footwear is offering Buy One, Get One Half Off + 15% off your order and free shipping with coupon code BFEVENT18 today, so it’s a great time to stock up on whatever you’ve been eying.

And of course you don’t want to miss out over at Shoes.com, where they’ve got up to 75% off, already, and you can use coupon code BLACKFRIDAY for another 30% off almost everything. Shipping is free on any order.

Go forth and acquire fabulous kicks, my friends.

My favorite trifecta of awesome-warranty Black Friday deals

You know I have three favorite stores for clothing and outerwear that tend to last forever (and customer service that’ll come through with a solution if it doesn’t), and all three of them have come through with the deals today:

Lands’ End has a pile of deals going on, plus you can use code FRIDAY with PIN 4872 for 50% off full-price styles. You’ll have to get to $50+ for free shipping, though.

Eddie Bauer is offering free shipping on every single order, plus 50% off nearly everything with coupon code FRIDAY50.

And rounding out the trio is LL Bean, where sales almost never happen. But all their awesome Bean boots are 25% off today with coupon code—wait for it—BOOT25, plus take 20% off all clothing/outerwear (even sale items) with coupon code THANKS20. Again, get to $50+ for free shipping.

Hmmm, maybe I need a new winter coat….

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.
