Woot your week off right

A Woot-Off on a Monday? That’s crazy! And yet, here we are. Don’t question it. Just go with the magic.

They’re Wooting Off all day long today at Woot, Home.Woot, Tools.Woot, Sport.Woot, Kids.Woot, and everyone’s favorite source of sometimes-wine-and-sometimes-other-stuff, Wine.Woot. That means the deals are rotating every 30 minutes or less, and if you have some time to kill, you could score big.

They’re also having a sale on Zike Hybrid bikes (it’s like a stair-stepper on wheels), which totally intrigues me. Not enough to buy one, probably, but wow are those weird looking.

LEGO my transport

It’s nice when you can catch some random LEGO set marked down sometime other than December, isn’t it? Heh. Today Amazon has this LEGO City Great Vehicles Auto Transporter set marked down to $20.99, which is a third off of retail and its lowest price on Amazon ever. Get the transporter, two cool cars to load on it, two minifigs, and the associated accessories (like a wee LEGO clipboard).

This is a 300+ piece, 5-star-rated set. If my kid was still in the LEGO years, I’d be snapping this up right quick.

Hello, Kohlsday

It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s time for my cranky dog to get his booster vaccines. Um. Which you don’t care about in the slightest. But! It’s also time for another round of sales at Kohls, which maybe you do care about. (I may need more coffee….)

Right now everyone gets automatic free shipping on $75+, and $10 of Kohls Cash for every $50 spent. If you have a Kohls card, use coupon code SHOWERS30 for an additional 30% off, and code MVCMARCH for free shipping on any size order. (Did I ever mention that the $.25 price mistake sweaters from the last sale did actually show up? They’re adorable. My daughter and I each got one.) If you don’t have a Kohls card, you can still use coupon code LUVDEAL for an extra 15% off.

Of course they’ve got a slew of “One Day Deals” going on, too, and although they don’t seem to understand that it’s not “one day” so much as “all the time,” hey, whatever. Works for me.

My favorite mother-daughter book, on sale

This is on a Lightning Deal at Amazon right now (though it ends in under an hour; sorry I didn’t see it earlier)—if you’ve ever seen Sarah Kay’s TED talk about how it will be if she has a daughter, well, you should know that poem was turned into a sweet little book, and right now it’s just $4 at Amazon.

I gave this to my daughter when it first came out, and we both really love it. For $4 you really can’t go wrong.

Stock up on essentials

You’re probably going to buy a bunch of stuff the next time you head into Rite Aid, anyway, so why not stock up and save, right from home?

Right now you can take $15 off your $75+ order with coupon code 15SAVING, or $20 off your $100+ order with coupon code 20WITHFS. You also get automatic free shipping at $30+, so you’ll be saving and getting free shipping, that way.

Make sure to enroll for an online Wellness+ account to take advantage of all their deals, too—it only takes a minute to sign up, and it entitles you to all sorts of BOGOs and other discounts. I’m stocking up on vitamins and supplements in their 75% off sale, and I’m loving that I don’t even have to leave the house to do it!

How about some snarky t-shirts?

My apologies for not realizing that Amazon deal was only available to some. Hmph.

Here’s something everyone can get—today Tanga is running a “Back in My Day” t-shirt sale, including such gems as “In dog years I’m dead” and “Back in my day we had 9 planets.” It’s like they made this boutique just for me! Or maybe for you, too, if you feel similarly decrepit.

Prices start at just $6.50 plus $1.99 for shipping. Having a sense of humor about your age, however, is priceless.

It’s March, so score an Amazon bonus

Spring ahead, and then get yourself $10 to spend at Amazon for no reason other than it’s the promotion they’re running this month. It’s easy—just go buy a total of $50 in gift cards, apply coupon code 0315GCARDS, and you’ll receive a $10 promotional code in your email.

If you have gifts to buy, perfect! If you don’t have any gifts to buy, well, you can always use your own cards, and if you shop at Amazon as often as I do, it’s a deal worth doing just for the bonus.

[Edited to add: You must be signed in to your Amazon account for this promotion to work. Also it looks like only some people are eligible and I don't know why, but try it. It worked for me.]

Extra Groupon savings are back

(Did you miss me? I’m not dead! I swear! I mean, I’m pretty sure I’m not. Have had some stuff going on here; sorry to leave you while taking care of stuff. Thanks for your patience.)

Anyway. Hey, do you love Groupon? They’re running another bonus deal—right now you can save an extra 20% on Local deals, or an extra 10% on Goods or Getaways, with coupon code TRIPLE.

Some exclusions apply, but you can use it on multiple deals and for a savings of up to $50. Not bad. I especially like these deals now that all sorts of online goodies are listed in your “Local” deals even though they’re, y’know, not. Hey, I’ll take the savings.

Check out the deals at LOFT

If you love all things LOFT, you won’t want to miss the deals today—regular-price items are Buy One, Get One 50% off, and there’s an additional 40% coming off sale items when you add them to your cart.

Shipping is a flat $8.95, or free on $125+. (Remember that as long as it’s not marked “final sale,” you can do returns at your local store.)

I adore LOFT, but I do get aggravated (every single time) when I can’t choose “regular” for size type and have it filter out all the maternity stuff. It’s a small annoyance to wade through for great deals, though.

Hey, curly girls

My fellow curly-haired ladies know that finding the right hair product can be a lifelong quest. (I thought I found it; then they discontinued it. Of course.) My search continues, and lucky me, now that I have a teenage daughter with a different type of curl, products that aren’t quite right for me usually work just fine for her (and vice versa). Hooray!

Normally I wouldn’t buy a 3-pack of an untested product (what if I hate it?), but right now Amazon has this Pantene Pro-V Anti-Frizz Curl Creme 3-Pack available on Subscribe & Save with a clippable $6 coupon, and it’s marked down to $10.59. I’m up to 15% off this month, so that meant I got 3 bottles for… $3. Even if I don’t love it, no biggie. But it’s averaging 4.5 stars, so I’ll try it. If I don’t like it, I’ll give it to my kid or donate it.

It’s hard to beat a buck a bottle. It’ll probably cost them more than that just to ship it to me.
