Great deals if you can get ’em

Remember this post about The Children’s Place? The $10 off $30 coupon is still working, and they’ve just marked everything in the outlet down to to $4.99 or less.

Predictably, the site is being slammed, so you’ll need some patience and maybe a few choice words to utter as things fly out of your cart, but it’s worth the hunt if you love a great deal.

What are you still doing here? Go! Now!

[Edited to add: 3 minutes after I submitted my order, the site crashed. If you’re trying to get in, keep checking back.]


  1. The sites back up- for the moment!!

  2. Woohoo! I needed this. Thank you! I got 2 t-shirts, 2 rugby shirts, 1 pair of shorts, 2 pairs of trousers, 2 pairs of pajamas, a belt and a scarf for $41. You are sooooo pretty!

  3. It is up, but veerrrrry verrrrryyyyy ssssssssllllllllloooowwww. Thanks Mir. Hope I get in on some of the deals.

  4. Wow! What a frustrating morning slogging through that site. it’s up, it’s down, it’s maddeningly slow… will I get the deal or won’t I? Should I keep going, searching for more, or should I quit now that I am well over $30? All worth it though in the end. I feel like I won the lottery. Four dresses (so cute!!), two coats and some nice long sleeved cotton jammies for $29.93. Score!! I will be thinking of you Mir when my girls go out this summer in matching-but-not-identical dresses looking so cute and so sweet you could eat them with a spoon. Thanks.

  5. Is is okay to hug you? 😉

    I just got 10 pair of jeans for two of my daughters for 40 bucks!

    I have bought them over 20 pairs of jeans each this year because they keep wearing holes in the knees after 2 months. And I paid way more than 40 dollars I am sure.

    Thanks so much for sharing these great deals!

  6. WOW. I got 2 dresses, 2 pair of PJs, a sweater, a belt, a headband, and a pair of socks… for $28. YES! My daughter is going to go insane when she sees all this. Thank you, pretty Mir!!

  7. Sooooooo slooooowwwwwwww. I’m trying to have some patience 🙂

  8. Ok, so now I had to go back and get 2 hoodies, 2 capri pants, 2 pairs of tights, 4 pairs of socks for $28. You are stunning!

  9. I’ve landed a bunch of generic application errors. They’re free! WOoooooHoooooooo!

  10. yeah!! i got 2 pairs of socks, four tops, tights, a hoodie and a dress for $30!

    (the site is still slllooooowwwwwww)

  11. oh my gosh I wasted all afternoon trying to get stuff, and it kept disappearing out of my cart. but all was good in the end, 3 tops, 1 dress, 2 skirts, and a pair of shoes for under $30!

    If you’ve shopped there before, though, login FIRST, before you choose anything, or you’ll have to re-create your whole cart. *rolls eyes*

  12. I think this qualifies as the most painful shopping event EVER. I have been logged into their site for a good three hours, trying to find $30 worth of stuff for my cart. Even when I thought I finally had everything in there, and had applied the $10-off coupon code, some message came up, like, “Oh hey, it’s now out of stock since our website took so damn long!” And I was back down to $25 worth of merchandise. So now I am attempting to put a different $4.99 in my cart. *sigh*

    If this works, I will be very grateful. If it doesn’t, I may never shop CP again! Lordy!

  13. Lucky for CP, the order went through. Only took about 10 tries of entering my personal information over and over again. 😉

    For $27, I got a pair of PJs, some hair scrunchies, a halter top w/matching skort, a blazer for my son (for a cruise next year – $3.38!!!!!), and a polo shirt. Not too shabby.

    Thank you, Mir, as always.

  14. I stumbled across your site yesterday, just in time for this! Although it has taken me all day to complete my order, I made out with 2 polos, 1 onesie, a baseball cap, a pair of pjs, a hoodie, and 2 long sleeved button up shirts all for $31 (plus the $5 shipping). I also told a friend about the sales and she got some great deals for her son too! Thanks for sharing. I look forward to visiting here often. 🙂

  15. For those of us who were late to the party…the TCP outlet stores (yes, brick-and-mortar) usually have the same stuff and sometimes have lower prices than the online outlet.

    This was a fantastic deal though, thanks for pointing it out Mir!
