I’d like one of everything, please

Was there ever a store that made me make more obnoxious squeeeeeing noises than ModCloth? Probably not. Everything there is so pretty and quirky and wonderful. I want to buy the whole store.

I can’t do that—not until I win the lottery, anyway, and since I never play, that’s gonna be a long wait—but today I (and you) can save 40% on a whole slew of seasonable favorites, as part of their Twelve Days of Flash Sales. Spend $75+ and your order ships for free, too.

I’ve been a pretty good girl, this year. Maybe I’ll just go browse a little….

Skater chic for the teens

I only shop at Tilly’s for my kids when they have a huge sale—because I’m a cheapskate—but when they do, I do, because they have so many of the “cool” things I otherwise refuse to pay for. (Pro tip: They often have ridiculously good deals on trendy sneakers—think Nike, Converse, Vans, and more—if you catch them on one of these sales.)

Anyway! Right now there’s an extra 50% markdown on everything in the Clearance, plus the more spend, the more you save. Spend $75 and $15 comes off at checkout; spend $100 and it’s $20; spend $125 and it’s $25. Shipping is free on your $59+ order, otherwise rates start at $8.

Make it Macy’s (for the savings, but also to win)

Ho ho ho… it’s time for another round of Friends & Family savings at Macy’s—just use coupon code FRIEND to save up to an additional 30% off your purchase.

Even better, thanks to our friends at, you can also go go enter to win a $100 gift card to make your shopping more merry! (15 winners will be selected and announced next week.)

macys-fiesta-bowlsMe, I’ve been trying to figure out forever how I can justify switching our dishes over to Fiestaware. (It’s so expensive. But so pretty.) The answer is, I really can’t. It’s a luxury we absolutely do not need. But… um… I broke a bunch of bowls over the last few years (not on purpose; they’re slippery when I’m unloading the dishwasher) and I probably could justify buying a few of these replacement bowls, right? I mean, with the coupon they’re $6 apiece, which is still a lot for a bowl, I guess, but did I mention what pretty bowls they are? (Hey, the nice thing about Fiesta is that it’s been around for forever and it’s nearby indestructible. So maybe I buy a few bowls now, a few more at the next sale, and so on and so forth until I complete my collection when my grandchildren graduate from college or whatever.)

Shipping is free on your $100+ order, or you can order online and pick up at your local store (which will also get you a savings pass to use for your next shopping trip, too).

And if you win one of those gift cards you have to promise to buy me a bowl. (Not really.) (But I wouldn’t turn it down.)

One-day deals at Aerie

If you love all things Aerie, today’s the day to stock up on undies, bralettes, and pajama pants—the latter two are just $15 apiece, while undies are 5 for $15. And no matter what you spend, your order will ship for free.

Usually you have to wait for the 10 for $30 sale, so this is a nicer option if you didn’t need quite so many pairs. All three of these deals are good today (Monday, December 5th) only.

If you have a teenage girl on your shopping list, this isn’t a sale you should miss.

Stack these savings at Penguin

I’m not going to lie—the full retail prices at Original Penguin are a little rich for my blood, especially considering that most of their offerings are “casual” clothes. But! Catch the right sale, and now you’re talking.

Like right now, you’ll get an additional 30% off full-price items or an additional 40% off sale items in your cart, automatically. And then you can apply coupon code OPTHANKS on top of that discount for another 30% off. Shipping is free right now, too. So you can stock up on sale socks for stockings, or whatever. You do you. Just make sure you grab all the extra savings, while you do.

Half off at Lands’ End, today only

I think it’s possible that Lands’ End is offering several different discounts today, because the first time I visited the site it offered me 40% off, and later, it offered 45% off. Those are both good, but I’d rather take half off. I mean, as long as we’re saving.

Thanks to alert reader LeeAnn for letting me know that coupon code CYBER50 with PIN 4625 takes 50% off almost everything (some items are excluded from further discounts, and are marked as such). You’ll need to spend $50+ after the discount for free shipping, or pay with Visa Checkout for free 2-day shipping on any size order.

It probably sounds a little crazy, but this is the right time to score a crazy deal on swimsuits, if you’re so inclined.

You say you want some shoes?

Of course they have more than just shoes, but once again is offering both a 15% off everything coupon (use code CYBERMON) and they’re doing another day of hourly Mystery Deals. And yes, the coupon can be applied to those, as well.

Meanwhile, over at Shoebuy, they’ve got a slew of deals today, plus coupon code CYBERMONDAY gives you an extra 30% off, and of course shipping and exchanges are free.

If you dig Payless, they’re also marking everything down, plus code ZZCYBER1 takes an extra 25% off. Free shipping on your $25+ order, or to your local store.

Just about everything is on sale at Clarks, plus coupon code CYBER16 takes another 25% off, plus they have free shipping and free returns.

That’s just a few of my favorites. If you can’t find what you need there, well, you probably have very special feet.

That’s a bullseye

Is just about everything on sale at Target today? Yep. Not only that, with a few exclusions, everything is an extra 15% off at checkout, too.

Whether you want pajamas (25% off before extra discount) (ahem, if the elves deliver new jammies for Christmas at your house, they still have plenty of themed ones—I love the elf suits, myself—in stock) or Tervis tumblers or anything else, they’ve got the deals. Free shipping and free returns, too.

This is perfect for “I need a few more things and also some Kleenex” or whatever. You do you. Personally, you couldn’t pay me to step foot in an actual Target store between now and New Year’s, so this is perfect for me.

Ever heard of Cyber Sunday? Me neither.

We know tomorrow’s going to be full of all kinds of online deals, but apparently Black Friday and Cyber Monday weren’t quite enough for Old Navy and Gap. Nope! Today (Sunday) everything’s an extra 40% off at Old Navy, automatically, plus coupon code CYBERDEAL takes off another 10%; meanwhile, everything’s 50% off at Gap with coupon code CYBMON. Remember you’ll get free shipping on any order of $50+ across the Gap family of stores (and that’s your pre-coupon total).

Even better, you’ll earn Super Cash or Gap Cash, respectively, when you shop—and they award it based on the amount before coupons. So I just earned $20 to spend this coming week on an order that cost me about $30. That’s… a little bit nuts.

Go shop tonight, before things get crazy tomorrow.

Half off at Schoola all weekend

You already know that Schoola is the perfect place to save big on the brands you and your kids love, while making a little money for schools, right? (I don’t know about you, but I don’t mind “gently worn” at all, if it means I can save a little dough.)

Anyway, this weekend you can take 50% off all pre-loved items with coupon code BF50. Most of their offerings are already 50-70% off retail, and now you’ll save an additional 50% off the marked price. That’s a perfect way to find what they want at prices you can afford. And who am I kidding—I buy clothes for myself at Schoola almost as often as I buy stuff for the kids.

The code expires at 11:59 pm on Sunday, so you’ve got the weekend to check it out. But remember, when an item’s gone, it’s gone.
