Good news and bad news

The good news is that there’s a couple of great offerings today in the Target Daily Deals; both the little red tea-for-two set I love for just $15, and a cool-looking outdoor bistro table with a built-in heater for $160 shipped. (You’re making a killing on the free shipping, there—that sucker weighs 70 pounds.) If you’re buying the table—or making another purchase that totals $50+—don’t forget to activate the $5 off $50 coupon, through this link.

I can just hear you. “That’s great, Mir, but what’s the bad news?” Well, the bad news is that the featured deal of the day is already sold out at 6:00 a.m. I guess you’ll have to get your screamin’ deal on a fake diamond ring somewhere else.

(Can you picture that proposal? “Oh, darling, you shouldn’t have! Wait… is this… you bought my engagement ring at Target? Get out! Get! OUT!”)


  1. I think the other bad news is that you would burn yourself if you sat too close to that Bistro Table. 🙂

  2. I find it hard to believe that’s a table as it’s only 16 inches tall. I’m guessing it goes on the table.

  3. Heidi, the depth is 16″. The table is 26″ tall.

  4. It says it’s 25.75″ tall. The shipped size is 16″. Just turned on it’s side to fit the box. ?

  5. you crack me up, mir. 🙂

  6. So, it’s a daily deal with a nice ring to it?

    (All right, I’m going, no need to push!)

  7. My hubby of 12 years bought my engagement ring at Target. He wanted to propose with a ring but he also wanted me to pick it out. So he proposed with a fake ring and then we went shopping for a real one. It acrually worked out well!

  8. Um, my “real” ring (engagement and wedding) is from Target. But not to worry, we did it big, with “real” diamond (flakes). It doesn’t seem to have hurt our 9 years of marriage too badly…

  9. No offense meant, Anissa—I’m all about the deal, but the idea of buying something as important as an engagement ring on a Target Daily Deal seemed a little funny to me.

    My engagement ring has real diamond flakes, too! 🙂

  10. I’m over here in Germany, so I check the daily deals usually an hour after they start or so…it already said sold out then. Something’s screwy… 🙂
