It’s a very soggy Friday

When you live in the land of drought, you’re not supposed to complain about a lot of rain. So I’m not. Complaining, that is. I am just looking at the soggy outdoors very sternly. And staying inside.

Please note that in addition to their regular Daily Deals at Target today, they’re also having a Black Friday in July event. There are a few good deals in there, so take a look.

Not to be outdone, in addition to the Amazon Friday Sale, Amazon is also running a LG event, with discounts on all manner of LG home electronics. Several of you have asked me for help finding televisions, lately, and LGs are state of the art, so check out those options if you’re in the market.

In the continuing theme of really-are-we-talking-about-Christmas-already (answer: heck yes!), Philosophy is having a discount event on holiday products, today only! Stack those 30% off savings with coupon code 10off50 for another $10 off your $50+ order, and you could knock out several holiday gifts before school even starts up again, you smartypants, you.

Crocs is doing Black Friday today, too. Use coupon code FALLSHIP for free shipping.

And if you’re feeling ritzy, the anniversary sale is currently on at Nordstrom. I’m not saying the prices are low, exactly, but you will find some of their lowest prices of the year.

Now I want a big new television and a new fancy purse. Hmph.


  1. The code “10off50” gets an error message of “this promotion code is not available yet. please check the dates on your offer and contact customer care with any questions.” Any ideas? These scream teacher/bus driver gifts!

  2. Hmmm… give me a few minutes to look into this, not sure what’s going on.

  3. Thanks for the Crocs tip, I snagged a pair of lined ones for winter. We luvs that free shipping, we do.

    BTW, is there a general page for the Friday Sale at Amazon? The only one I ever come up with is the ‘personal care and grocery’ one.

  4. Chak, that’s all that’s left of the Friday Sale anymore. Sad!

  5. Mir, did you find out about the Philosophy promo code? I just tried it and it still says the same thing that the other person said. Thanks, Janet

    • I notified (that’s where the code came from) and was told they’re looking into it, but haven’t heard back yet! I’m sorry—will update as soon as I know something.

  6. Last year I went to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and got a few back-to-school things for my daughter and niece. Looking at the tags, I was curious what would happen after the Anniversary Sale — would someone go through the entire store and put a higher price sticker over every single tag, and then expect to sell the merchandise for that higher price? That didn’t seem likely.

    A month or so later I went to Nordstrom Rack. Ta-da! That’s where all the anniversary sale merch ended up. Marked down, too. So take a look around at the sale and grab anything you HAVE to have, but know that you’ll likely get a second shot at it!

  7. I just tried the Philosophy code and it’s not working for me, either.
