Saturday deals

Gooooooood morning! Everyone should start off the weekend right. For me, it started with a faceful of dog saliva. (Um. I guess your definition of “right” needs to be fairly flexible….)

Well, here: It’d be hard to argue with the “rightness” of free, right? Today you can grab Cake Mania as a free game download from Amazon. (Check out the overwhelmingly positive reviews here.)

More free: Did you remember that today is Talk Like A Pirate Day? Avast, you scoundrels! It is! To celebrate, go download a free episode of Tales of Monkey Island, today only.

Also, if you’re looking for a good elliptical and don’t have a truck to lug one home, check out today’s Amazon Gold Box Deal—it’s a highly-rated Schwinn elliptical trainer, marked down and with free shipping (which is like saving another $100 because those things weigh a ton).

The $19.95 Jansport backpacks are back at for the weekend, along with a slew of other deals. Redwing, Rockport, Taryn Rose, and Gotta Flurt (which I’ve never heard of before, but for under $12 it’s hard to go wrong) are all in there, along with a free BlackBerry offer. Because shoes and smartphones go together, apparently.

Alternatively, this weekend you can buy a Fall style of Crocs and get a Spring style for free, just in case you can’t get enough Crocs in your wardrobe.

If you have a small child, run, don’t walk, over to the Target Daily Deals this morning—they have “wiggle cars” (otherwise known as plasma cars) for $39.99 shipped. (Buying more than one? Put ’em in your cart, then click through this link for another $5 off your $50+ order.) Plasma cars move when you wiggle the steering wheel back and forth, meaning that they self-locomote and seem to effortlessly glide along. I bought two for my kids when they were little and they still use them. Heck, I’ll be honest—I use ’em, too. They hold up to 220 pounds, I think, and they’re all kinds of fun.

Have you been waiting on a coupon code for American Girl? Now’s the time—go through this link to save $10, $15, or $20 depending on how much you spend.

Check out the weekend sale at Macy’s and use coupon code WEEKEND to save an additional 15% or 20%, plus select bed & bath purchases over $125 qualify for free shipping.

The Fall Sale is on at Banana Republic, and purchases of $150+ ship for free with coupon code BRSHIP150. I’ll confess I sort of love Banana Republic, but it’s kind of hard to justify now that I work from home. One of you who works in an office go buy something pretty and think of me, mmkay? (I guess Old Navy is more my speed, where right now I can use code ONSAVESOME to take 20% off my $100+ purchase.)

Arrrrrrr. Have an awesome day, landlubbers! P’rhaps there be some pirate booty in it for you later on today, if you come back….


  1. Arrrrg matey! Glad to know it is “Talk Like a Pirate Day”. I was beginning to think the art would be lost.

  2. That Wiggle Racer is awesome! We saw it in the store for $59 and my 3 year old rode it around for a long time. We didn’t buy it that day, and when we went back it was gone. Everytime we go to the store, we look for it, but it’s never there. I bought it and had it shipped to Grandma’s house for Christmas. Thanks!!!

  3. My kids have been waiting 364 for it to be talk like a pirate day again.

  4. Just wanting to let you know – the wiggle car at Target says maximum weight capacity of 60 lbs. I think it must be a smaller version that I’ve seen before – it looks narrower.

  5. I thought for half a second that I was going to scoop you: the wiggle racer is $29.99 at Amazon…but doesn’t qualify for free shipping. So your deal still wins. I bow down to you, O Sales Goddess. 😉

    (Bee is getting one for xmas – thanks!)
