Happy Valentine’s Day from Kohls

Is shopping at Kohls romantic? Maybe not, but saving money means you have more left over for chocolates and flowers, right? Right!

Today they’re doing a bunch of sales/specials, and everyone gets $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent, and everyone can use coupon code BIGSAVINGS for 15% off any order or 20% off your $100+ order. Shipping is free on your $75+ order no matter what. If you’ve got a Kohls card, you’re smart and can save a bunch extra—get free shipping on any size order with code SHIPFEB and save an additional 30% off with coupon code LOVE30.

Stack those codes with HOME10 for an extra $10 off your $50+ qualifying purchase of home goods, and/or DIAMOND for an extra $10 off your $50+ qualifying jewelry purchase. Or if you’re in the market for luggage, code LUGGAGE50 will take an extra $50 off your $200 purchase, there.

As always, scope out the Clearance for the best deals. Pro tip: Those of you thinking you have oodles of time to shop before you launch your new graduate in the fall? Shop now. There’s lots of great deals on towels and other dorm essentials, plus you can hardly go wrong once you add in all the coupon savings. You’re welcome.

Extra savings on Target clearance

Is there anything better than Target clearance? Yes: Target clearance with an extra 20% off! Select clothing, shoes, and accessories are all eligible for an extra 20% off today when you apply coupon code SAVEBIG. (Note that eligible items are clearly marked.)

Shipping is free on $35+ or with your REDcard, or you can opt for store pickup if you’re buying less and don’t want to pay for shipping.

It looks like the offer is good all this week, but items are selling out fast.

It’s time for fancy deals

Every time there’s another round of discounts at Last Call by Neiman Marcus I end up prefacing it with these are not the same as deals at Kohls because someone invariably complains that the prices are still too high. So, to clarify:

Deals at Last Call are still expensive. There, I said it. That said, if you’re in the market for designer goods or a fancy evening gown or whatever, hitting up one of their sales and plundering the clearance can really pay off. I mean, I’m not in the market for a $100 dress every day, but if it’s formal season and the original price was $700? Maybe! My point is that this is the time to scoop up some of their deepest discounts of the season, but don’t expect to be getting items for a couple of bucks.

Shipping is free on $99+ with coupon code LCSHIP, or it’s free with ShopRunner, or otherwise shipping will run between $5 and $7. Happy hunting!

Crocs for all and all for Crocs

Listen, no one loves to poke fun at Crocs more than me, but the truth is that my kids loved them when they were little, and I have a pair I use to putter around the garden, and really, these days they make way more than the original “rubber clog.” (Note: Their shoes are not actually rubber.) They’ve got a million different styles, now, and everything from sandals to winter boots.

That said, if you head on over to the Crocs site right now, all sale items are an extra 30% off when you add them to your cart, and you get free shipping on $25+. That includes a bunch of Star Wars styles (those almost never go on sale). You can pick up shoes for the little ones and some cute flats for yourself. Or whatever. I don’t judge. I mean, I tease, but I don’t judge.

Hip, toasty toes

Greetings from Georgia, where it snowed a couple of inches overnight and everyone is freaking out. Basically the entire state is shut down. My husband and I are both from up north so this is hilarious to us.

I of course started my day with an extra-fuzzy pair of socks and my beloved LL Bean “wicked good” slippers, because snow and cold and I cannot work in my drafty office without warm feet. And then I saw there’s a big sale happening at Happy Socks right now. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

Check out their assortment of 40% off Winter Sale items, plus every order gets free shipping, plus if you sign up for their email list I think they may send you a percent off coupon, too. (Don’t hold me to that; I signed up the last time I ordered.)

What’s happier-making than fun socks? I can’t think of anything. I’m off to stock up!

What’s that? It’s Kohls time?

“Oh, but it’s always Kohls time!” you may scoff, to which I say—well, sure, sort of. I mean, not always, because I do manage to need something from there in-between promotions, periodically. It’s a special talent. Regardless, right now is a good time to shop, should you want/need to do so.

Right now everyone earns $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 spent, and everyone can use coupon code SUPERSAVER for 20% off $100+ or 15% off, otherwise. You can also stack coupon code BABYSALE10 for $10 off $30 on your qualifying Baby/Maternity purchase. Shipping is free on $75+ or you can ship to the store for free pickup. Kohls Card holders can use code SNOWY30 for an additional 30% off and JAN4FREE for free shipping on any size order.

The Bonus Buys are out in full force, and while the seasonal clearance pickings are a bit slim, now, what they do have left from Christmas is ridiculously cheap.

It’s a dark, rainy day, here, and sometimes a good Kohls sale is just what I need….

Life is better with a flash sale

Goooood morning! I have been enjoying my time off immensely, and I hope you were able to rest and relax some, too. (Let us not discuss how both of my children are leaving me in a couple of weeks. I can’t hear you! Lalalala!)

Just in case Santa didn’t bring everything you wanted, today Life is Good is having a Flash Sale. Sale prices are slashed up to 50%, plus you’ll see another 20% savings on those already-reduced items in your cart. Shipping is free on $49+, otherwise it’s a flat $5.

I happen to think their stuff is super cute—okay, maybe I didn’t quite get it when they mostly featured that grinning stick figure guy on everything, but now they have a huge assortment of items with dogs on them, so, yeah—plus they donate 10% of their proceeds to kids in need. Hard to argue with that.

Winter is coming! I mean, probably.

We’re supposed to get some snow tomorrow. I live in the south, so this is Big News. Like, clear out the grocery store of bread and milk and eggs kind of news. I have no idea how the weather’s been going this year elsewhere, but I do know that aside from French toast fixings, you may need some warmer clothing to brave the elements.

If you’re not ready for it yet, good news! Today (Thursday, December 7th) only, Target is offering half off winter-wear for the whole family! This covers the usual suspects—parkas, snow pants, some vests and fleece—but also (inexplicably) some windbreakers and suit jackets and light cardigans (and a couple of swim coverups…?), too. Target doesn’t seem to really understand how winter works, but I’m okay with that.

Shipping is free on every order. Also if you have a toddler I need to borrow them because some of those toddler jackets made me squeal out loud with the cute.

Stock up for the kids today

I never feel so bitter about my kids growing up as I do when Children’s Place has a huge sale. Like, whyyyyyyyy must I have adult-sized children whose clothing costs as much as mine?? I miss the days of $2 t-shirts and big stock-up sales where I literally bought “one in every color” of anything they liked because it was so cheap.

Little kids are cheap, y’all. I know, you think they’re expensive with their diapers and everything. But then they grow up and want computers and cars and college. And that’s aside from clothing that suddenly costs a whole lot more. (Clearly the issue here is the letter c. I need to do more research into this issue.)

Anyway, if your kids are still small, get on over there—everything is at least 50% off, with clearance as much as 75% off. Every order ships for free, and you’ll earn $10 Place Cash for every $20 you spend. (Not that you’ll need to come back and spend that, because you’ll already have one in every color thanks to today’s sale….) Also, did you know they have matching family jammies, including adult sizes?? They do. Go. Enjoy. Don’t worry about me, sitting over here all bitter.

Did you miss all the outerwear deals? Never fear!

It doesn’t happen anymore, but when my kids were little I swear they would wait for every sale on a given item to pass before having a growth spurt. Every time. I’d be sitting there all smug in December that I’d finally made sure everyone had snow pants and boots and whatever before school even started (okay, this was before we lived in the south…) and then a week before Christmas, the parkas would magically shrink, or a child would come home with just one boot. That wasn’t just us, right?

Sales will keep coming and going, but if you have a small-ish human in your home who needs a new coat or other items, or if you just realized you, yourself, need a pair of boots of a jacket warmer than that hoodie you’ve been wearing all fall (oh, wait, that was me in the hoodie), today (Monday, December 4th) would be a good time to check out Lands’ End—you can use coupon code WARMTH with PIN 3216 for 50% off your entire order! (Note: this code works only on full-price items, so this is not a good time to clean up on additional clearance savings, but if you’ve had your eye on a new parka, this is absolutely a good time to grab that.)

Shipping is free on your $50+ order, which is calculated after any coupon savings (boo). Don’t forget that you can return Lands’ End merchandise for free at your local Sears, soooo… I’m not telling you what to do, of course, but maybe you want to order something in two different sizes and return the one you don’t want in-store, and maybe that gets you free shipping along the way. Just sayin’.
