Friday’s full of surprises

Happy Friday! Today marks one week since my son had his tonsils and adenoids out and little blue tubes inserted into his ears (yes, I suspect our ENT is Dr. Seuss). Pro tip: Do not take a flashlight and look in your kid’s throat after a tonsillectomy. You’re welcome!

Instead, go shopping to ease the transition from narcotics to regular painkillers. (Um, that’s his transition. I am not taking narcotics. Sadly.)

Today 6pm is having a massive denim event, with markdowns on all of your favorite jeans. I loaded up my cart last night and wasn’t all that impressed by the additional price drops this morning, but I am apparently shaped like a weirdo and love the hardest-to-find style that Lucky makes. I see much bigger discounts on lots of other jeans, so it may be worth checking out.

Speaking of Lucky Brand, right now if you shop them directly, you can use coupon code ALB25CAT to take $25 off any order of regular-price merchandise. Find an item under $25 (hint: check out the jewelry) and you’ll pay only the $7 shipping!

The Target Daily Deals are currently doing that weird thing where, on the top-level page, some of them don’t appear to be discounted, but they actually are. Like the dish chairs are just $24, and the 4-pack of Burt’s Bees lip balms is just $5.99. Free shipping on all of the daily deals, as always.

Proving that even Amazon can be full of surprises, today’s Friday Sale is full of coffee, as usual, but also Coke and Pepsi and Kool-Aid. (Hey! It’s rot-your-teeth Friday at Amazon!) Don’t forget that we’re coming to the end of the month, and so to the end of many of this month’s grocery specials. Their current special on Kitchens of India foods, for example, is always popular (many items are already sold out)—save 15% with Subscribe & Save, but get another 35% off with coupon code KITCHENI, for a total of half off.

Remember how I said there’s always another Lands’ End coupon coming along? Here it is: Today only, use coupon code JAN28 with PIN 2694 for an extra 30% off items already reduced (sale or clearance), plus get free shipping on your $50+ order.

Now go get yourself something pretty. You deserve it!


  1. I got a set of bangle bracelets for a friend’s birthday for $7 from Lucky. They claim they will package it in complimentary gift packaging too. How great if it comes in a cute package and I don’t have to wrap them! Thanks.

  2. Thanks Mir – My son mentioned to me last night that he needed a new pair of jeans…Lucky for me that you had the Lucky code today. 🙂

  3. I tried the coupon code for Lucky and it didn’t work! :o( I’m probably doing something wrong….

  4. Darn, the lucky code is not working for me either!

  5. Mir – quick groupon question – is there a site that you know of/use that lists the best Groupon deals of the day? I’m lazy and don’t want to search city by city 🙂

  6. They tell you not to look in there after the surgery but honestly, that’s like daring you to do it.
