Don’t step on any black cats, today

I don’t want to belabor the fact that it’s Friday the 13th—after all, I’ve always considered it sort of a lucky day, myself—but you might want to take any necessary precautions. Like maybe eating extra cookies today, just in case. (In case what? I don’t know. Just eat the cookies.)

Me, I am (of course) turning to the Amazon Friday Sale for guidance. I hope they’re up to the task.

I think this bamboo cutting board is pretty, but according to the description, bamboo is actually 16% harder and more durable than maple. I had no idea.

Living gluten-free? If you stock up on Pamela’s Baking Mix today, using Subscribe & Save you’ll pay $27.20 shipped for twelve pounds of it. (That’s a lot of pancakes and stuff….)

Aaaaand… well, see now, I guess the 13th got to them. Kind of a crummy sale, this week. Even the Friday Five has sort of left me cold. This is not good.

Let’s see… ah! Here we go: Today only (Friday the 13th!), Famous Footwear is celebrating by offering an additional 25% off all “Famous Finds” (that’s the stuff already on sale) with coupon code LUCKY13. Now that’s what I’m talking about.

Oh, or how about the Ultimate Oliver Stone Collection from F.Y.E. today? It’s 14 discs for $29.99 shipped, except that there’s a $20 mail-in rebate (I’ve had good luck with F.Y.E. rebates), so it ends up being just under $10. Not bad at all.

Or how about a new code for Coldwater Creek? Use WKH1641 to save 25% on anything, including already-reduced outlet items.

Okay, I feel a little better now. Carry on with your Friday.


  1. Coldwater Creek has just sent out a deal on all their jeans for 29.95 and your 25% off code makes it a REAL deal. Thanks bunches.

  2. Friday the 13th has always been a lucky day for me, too. Man…I NEED some good luck. Here’s hoping…

    Have a great one, Mir.

  3. I agree, Amazon’s Friday Five is rather disappointing today. However, I’m still experiencing residual warm, fuzzy feelings for Amazon after scoring U2’s latest “No Line on the Horizon” for just $3.99 (on the first day of its release!!)! It was their MP3 Daily Deal last Tuesday. Amazon sells a different album for $1.99 to $3.99 every day. The offerings are quite random, but a fantastic deal. I learned to check the main MP3 page every day, after I got Bon Jovi’s “Cross Road” for $1.99!

  4. I was born on Friday the 13th, so hopefully something good happens today!

  5. Hold the phone! Code WKH1735 at Coldwater Creek will also get you Free Shipping and 25% off your “Merchandise Purchase”. I’m not sure if that means your entire order or not, but it would be worth a try. Has anyone ever bought their jeans before? I’d love to know how you think they fit. Thanks!

  6. awww- the code does not work on the $29. jeans, but I got a skirt I had been holding off on buying! Thanks, Mir 🙂

  7. oh- I bought the jeans anyway lol

  8. For anyone else that needs gluten-free- I just ordered the Breadman bread machine (TR875) from Amazon for $79.95 with free shipping. The reviews on this machine look pretty great and with the gluten free cycle you can’t go wrong (at least that is what I’m planning on) at that price–that is definitely the cheapest I have seen it anywhere…just last week it was on Amazon for $20 more…

  9. Krista, I have the gluten free breadmaker and it’s excellent – enjoy it!

    Mir, the Friday Sale left me cold as well, but if you scroll through the outlet there are a few good deals. I finally had to come to terms with the fact that my family has outgrown our little crockpot. It’s easier to reconcile when the bigger one was discounted in the outlet with good reviews. My family will enjoy a bigger corned beef and cabbage meal this year, lol. Happy Friday!
