It’s not too late for Halloween deals

Still need a costume or two for your kids? Keep an eye on all of the Amazon Lightning Deals today—there’s tons of kiddie costumes in there at discount prices.

Of course, if you’ve been watching over the last few days, you know that they’ve also been featuring a ton of doggie costumes, and that’s been really stressful for me because I can’t decide if I really need that dinosaur outfit for Duncan. Decisions, decisions….

Discover the deals at Lands’ End

Lands’ End is doing a bit of a tricky sale, today, for Columbus Day. According to the site, you can take 25% off with the coupon code they provide. But according to me, you can take 30% off—even on already-reduced items—with coupon code MAIZE and PIN 1656. There’s tons of goodies in the Clearance section, so plenty of ways to save.

Shipping is free on $50+, and remember that you can return items to your local Sears, if need be.

Hurry, though—much like this elusive day off of school, after today, it’s over.

Summer’s end ice cream

Summer may be over, but that just means it’s the perfect time to snag a deal on an ice cream maker! Amazon has this Cuisinart ICE-21R Frozen Yogurt/Ice Cream/Sorbet Maker available in red right now for just $31.99 shipped (its lowest price ever).

I have a Cuisinart ice cream machine and I love it truly, madly, and deeply. I may whisper sweet nothings to it during the summer when it’s 100+ degrees out. I am not ashamed.

Snag it now rather than bemoaning the higher cost once the temps rise again!

If you want to cook like a ninja…

… you need a Ninja 3-in-1 cooking system, obviously!

Remember a couple of years ago, I did a Ninja review, and then a couple of weeks later, I gave one away? I still use my Ninja several times a week—it’s definitely my favorite cooking method.

The only problem with the Ninja cooker is the price. Although it does way more than a regular crock pot, it’s still hard for most of us to justify the $200 the Ninja debuted at, or even the $130 it currently goes for on Amazon. But if you’ve been saving your pennies, today may just be your lucky day. Today only, over at Home.Woot they have a refurbished Ninja for just $89.99. (Note that the Ninja comes in several different models. This is the MC702 on both sites, the model that comes with bonus multi-purpose and mini-muffins pans.)

Is it still more than you’d pay for a “regular” crock pot? Yep. Does it do a whole lot more than a regular crock pot? Yep! At this price, I don’t see how you could go wrong.

It’s a great day to save at Gap

Love Gap? Hop on over there today for huge savings for men and women—pants and shirts are already marked 50% off, and then coupon code NEWOUTFIT takes off an additional 20%-40%, depending on how many items you buy (see site for details).

Remember that shipping is free on $50+ across the entire Gap family of sites, or free on any order containing an item from Piperlime.

With all of those cheap t-shirts in there, I may just restock my closet; between the markdown and the coupon, this is cheaper than Goodwill on plenty of basics!

Game on, LEGO-style

Have a LEGO-crazy kiddo who loves gaming? Right now Amazon has two hot LEGO video games available at their lowest-ever prices. Choose from The LEGO Movie Videogame or LEGO Marvel: Super Heroes on a variety of platforms (Nintendo, XBox, Playstation, even PC) for just $19.99 each. (In poking around, it looks like some of the older platform versions may even be a couple of bucks cheaper.)

Get one or get ‘em both. Or just let Santa know they’re on sale. Whatever.

Any time is 6pm when there’s a coupon

It’s 6:00 somewhere, right? I’m sure people say that when they’re talking about shoes.

Today you can shop all of the already-deeply-discounted options over at, and you can also save another 10%. Just use coupon code 6PMEQ10720141098.

Shipping is free on everything, though this used to be the one site where I’d pay shipping without complaining (too much), because the prices are so low.

Happy shopping!

If only they made these in teen sizes

Remember when the kids were little and you could contain them? I want one of these big enough to keep my teens from wandering. That’s not weird, is it…?

Ahem. Anyway! If you have an actual baby, check out this Graco Pack ‘n’ Play With Bassinet at Amazon. It’s currently down to $67.99—which is a pretty good price, already—but if you scroll down on that page you’ll see two additional deals. First, buy the play yard along with a white sheet and you’ll get the sheet for free (bonus!). Second, the play yard itself will be 20% off in your cart, making your total for both items just $54.39 shipped.

(Note that the additional 20% off only applies to the “tinker” pattern.)

Need to get to free Amazon shipping?

If you don’t have Prime, it happens all the time—you want to buy something just under the free Super Saver Shipping amount, but you need to add something to your order to get there.

Well, stocking stuffer season is nearly upon us, so may I suggest these $1 mustache bandages? Perfect for filling out your order, plus filling stockings.

Now, come closer… I mustache you a question. Oh, you’re busy? Okay, I’ll shave it for later.

$50 off $100, if you do it right

Pro: Bon-Ton offers tons of sales and coupons (which stack), free shipping on $75+ for everyone and Shoprunner-eligible shipping on nearly everything, and today you can take $50 off your $100+ purchase with coupon code ZXCLUSIV14C. That should even stack with other things, like their current 20% off shoes/handbags coupon SHOENBAG14S.

Con: This coupon has a ton of exclusions, so it’s not quite as straightforward as they’d have you believe. But if you read through the exclusions (various brands, clearance, Yellow Dot, food, jewelry/watches, small electrics… the list goes on) and still find something that qualifies, hey, save fifty bucks. I see a lot of eligible cookware, for example.

Good luck!
