If you’re eying an iPad…

… take a look at the Target splash page—this week they’re offering $100 gift cards along with iPad purchases. (They’ve got $30 gift cards to go with their iPod Touches, too, but that’s a more common deal.)

The deal’s good both online and in-store, and shipping is free on $50, so if you don’t feel like getting dressed today, no need. (I mean, for the deal. If you have to go to work or the store or something, probably you should get dressed.)

Happy 4th of July!

Hey, if you take a break from setting things on fire at some point today (food or explosives; I don’t judge), you might want to check out the $17.76 Sale going on over at 6pm.com. Plenty of ridiculous discounts to be had there, just keep an eye on the original price to see if it’s really a great deal.

And if there’s nothing you want there, they’re also doing a rare home goods sale. Lots of Le Creuset deals, so I’m trying very hard not to look….

Snacky goodness

Pop quiz time!

I just ordered these Popcorners Kettle Popped Corn Chips from Amazon, because…
A) With Mom Prime and Subscribe & Save, it comes out to $12.67 for 40 bags delivered, or under $.30/each.
B) They’re gluten-free!
C) Each bag is just 140 calories.
D) Because I tell myself I’ll pack them in the kids’ lunches and then eat them myself.
E) They’re a healthier alternative to potato chips.
F) All of the above. Don’t judge.

Bonus points if you order some for yourself, because they’re pretty yummy.

OMGoodness the cuteness!

Right now there are a ton of Seafolly markdowns happening at Amazon (they’re an Australian company that mostly makes cool swimwear), but if you have a little girl, please go buy one of these Ballerina Fairy Tutus immediately. They’re adorable, and marked down to just $13.30. (They claim the original price was $55, but who knows.)

I would totally buy one for my daughter, I love them so much, but they only go up to size 6X and she’s 16… sooooo… yeah.

(There’s tons of other Seafolly deals there, too. But the fairy wings!! Too adorable.)

Crazy toy discounts ahoy

It’s that time again—it’s the big online clearance at Toys ‘R’ Us, with deep discounts on all sorts of goodies. I’m seeing crazy discounts on big-ticket items like ride-ons and bikes.

If you’re the sort of person who’s inclined to knock out some holiday shopping long before the craziness that’ll be coming up in a few months, this is the sale for you. Some items have free shipping; most are free to order online and pick up at your local store, too.

The best deals will sell out quickly, so get going if you’re interested.

Get your swim on

If you haven’t outfitted the family in swim gear for the summer yet, today’s the day to get on over to Lands’ End—it’s the last day of their 40% off Swim Event. This, of course, means that a lot of stuff is more than 40% off, but the stuff that wasn’t on sale before is now at least 40% off.

I shamelessly love all things Lands’ End Swim, both for fit and durability. I think I’ve only once had to call them about a piece that didn’t hold up as well as I thought it should (and they replaced it right away, because their guarantee is awesome), but for the most part, nothing leaves the house until the kids outgrow it. Sturdy stuff for them, slender suits that don’t look like grandma suits for me. Love!

(Shipping is automatically free on $50+. Don’t forget that you can return unwanted items to your local Sears, too.)

Nab a special deal on healthy snacking

If you haven’t checked out NatureBox yet, here’s another limited-time deal to entice you: Through June 30th, 2014, you can visit this page and opt to receive 3 delicious full-size snack options from them for just $5 delivered.

(Ordinarily you pay $20/month for 5 snacks, so this is a nice bargain.)

To get the deal you do have to sign up for a subscription, but there are no rules about maintaining it. If, for some reason, you decide you don’t want to continue on at the regular price, you can cancel without penalty. I think you might decide to stay with them, though, because their snacks are amazing and delicious and there’s no yucky stuff in the ingredients.

Pick your trash

Remember the good ol’ days of the Woot Bag O’ Crap? That was always fun.

Looks like Tanga wants in on the action, but they’re making it even better—their bags of trash are themed. For $7.69 you can get “Blowout Trash” and for $23.09 you can get “Electronic Trash.” In-between those two, you can also select Home Trash, Apple Trash, or Outdoor Trash. (If you’re having trouble finding it, scroll down the main page at bit and look for the trash bag.)

It’s kind of a Trashapalooza. No doubt you won’t be getting the latest-greatest-most amazing stuff, but it might be worth a gamble.

Winner of the Misfit Shine giveaway

Once again, I’m sad that I have but one awesome prize to give away. Nearly 300 of you were intrigued by the chance to win a Misfit Shine, but I only have one.

(Okay; technically that’s not true. I have two if you count the one I’m wearing. But this one is mine because it brings me joy when it tells me I’m awesome.)

Anyway! The random number deities have spoken, and the winner is commenter 187, myboyzach (although I am a little worried because she asks if she can put it on the dog… I’m going to go with no on that one). Congratulations, myboyzach—please check your email! I’ll be sending you this beautiful Misfit Shine in wine, and I hope you’ll enjoy it.

Big thanks to everyone who played, and special thanks to the folks at Misfit for being so generous and furnishing the prize.

Didn’t win this time? Don’t be sad! You never know when I might have more goodies to give away. I hope you’ll stick around.

Half off at LOFT

If you love LOFT but hate their prices, today’s the perfect day to shop—coupon code FIFTY takes half off of just about everything, even items already on sale or clearance.

True, there’s plenty of “clearance” where the pre-coupon price is only a few bucks cheaper than the original price, but there’s also a slew of stuff that’s 50% – 75% off pre-coupon, yielding tremendous savings. You just have to dig a little.

Shipping is a flat $8.95, or free on $125+. (And remember that so long as they’re not marked “Final Sale,” items ordered online can be returned to your local store.)
