I’m humming it right now

Hello! I have been doing Real Life Thingsā„¢ and have been neglecting you. I am sorry.

To make it up to you, I got you a Woot-Off (complete with catchy theme song, which you should definitely listen to on the site if you haven’t before, because it’s nifty)! I mean, maybe they’re doing it for their 15th birthday, but whatever. Details.

It’s not the entire site, but I’m seeing some great deals on Clearance.Woot, Gourmet.Woot, and Shirt.Woot. You know the drill: deals rotate through, lasting as long as half an hour or going as quickly as just a minute or two. You have to pay attention and cross your fingers.

Don’t forget that if you have Amazon Prime, logging in with your account gets you free shipping on every Woot purchase!

If you wanna get your geeky on

Dangit, I knew something was up with that last sale (but oh man, did giant boxes arrive here for days? yep!), but it’s finally official: ThinkGeek is shutting its doors. Now, the good news is that you’ll still be able to find some of their stuff at GameStop, but still. That only covers various gaming and TV/movie fandom stuff, I bet. I’m sad about this. But also coupon code MOVINGDAY takes 50% off of everything (even stuff already on sale), so that’s helping a little. Items are selling out fast, but who knows—you might find something you need. (Shipping is free on $50+ after coupon.)

But if you just need some cool t-shirts and accessories, maybe head on over to Threadless, instead. Today they’ve got all their t-shirts marked down to $11.99, plus they’re offering up to half off everything else. And on top of that, you can sign up for a 25% off coupon if you’re new, or you might get a pop-up to spin the wheel of savings to get a coupon code or free shipping! (Percent off coupons can’t be used to stack savings, unfortunately.)

Anyway, I just needed to share that with my fellow nerds. (It’s not too early to start Christmas shopping, right? Asking for a friend. Who is me.)

It’s Kohls time again

Were you patiently waiting for the next round of Kohls promos? You never have to wait for long, but today it doesn’t matter because it’s time.

If you have a Kohls charge card, use coupon code FAMILY30 for an additional 30% off your order, plus coupon code JUNEMVCFREE gives you free shipping on any size order.

No card? That’s okay—you can use code SAVINGS for 15% off any order, or 20% off your $100+ order. Plus, everyone gets $10 of Kohls Cash for every $50 spent, and you can stack any of these department-specific coupons with a percent-off coupon, too:

  • INTIMATES10 takes $10 off your qualifying $40+ Warner’s/Olga purchase,
  • MYSTYLE takes $10 off your qualifying $50+ Women’s/Juniors purchase,
  • and DAD10 takes $10 off your qualifying $50+ Father’s Day gift purchase (and won’t it be fascinating to see what they consider appropriate gifts for his special day).

Combine all that with their usual sales/deals and some today-only Doorbusters, and you’ve got every reason to head on over there.

I almost forgot how to shop for new stuff

I was so busy with Poshmark [if you haven’t signed up yet, code wantnotdotnet gives us both $10 toward a purchase for a limited time!], I nearly forgot how to shop regular stores. A tragedy! But it’s okay, because today LOFT is having a giant sale and it turns out it’s just like riding a bike—I quickly remembered how to stack up all the savings. Phew!

So they’ve got everything on sale right now, with 60% off the hot summer styles, and an additional 40% coming off sale/clearance items in your cart when you apply code CYBER. And you can stack code CYBERVIP on top of that to save another 10%, too! Shipping is free on every order today and tomorrow.

There’s plenty of Petite/Plus/Maternity options, too, if you feel like stores never have your size. (Of course I’m the moron who’s scanning through and falls in love with something only to discover that it’s a Maternity item. Oops.)

You can’t have too many sneakers

The last time Keds had a big sale, I got a killer deal on some rose gold Kate Spade sneakers, and despite the fact that my fashionable adult daughter says they are “so extra,” I love them unapologetically. (Oh, they’re still available, though more than they were when I got ’em. Here they are.) I’ve been wearing Keds longer than she’s been alive, so she can hush.

Anyway, there’s plenty of options on sale, perfect for outfitting rapidly-growing children and picking up a fun little pair of kicks for yourself. Shipping is free, and if you use coupon code 20FORME you’ll get another 20% off your order, even on sale items.

There’s will always be a place in my heart for plain white Keds, but their new collaborations with Rifle Paper and Kate Spade are ah-maze-ing. Go take a look.

There’s still time to score for Mom

Whether you still need something for Mom or you just have some random shopping to do (something for the house, or new clothes for the kids, or something for yourself!), thank goodness there’s almost always a big sale event at Kohls.

Right now they’ve got the usual sales and doorbusters happening, plus you’ll earn $10 Kohls Cash for every $50 you spend, plus coupons galore. Have a Kohls charge card? (If not, why on earth not? It’s the only store card I have, because the coupons make it 100% worth it.) Use coupon code MOM30 for an extra 30% off and code MAYMVCFREE for free shipping on any size order. No card? You can still get free shipping on your $75+ order, plus use code DAYLIGHT15 for 15% off. Everyone can stack code MOMSDAY10 for $10 off your qualifying $50+ Mother’s Day purchase, code PATIOSAVE50 for $50 off your $200+ qualifying patio furniture purchase, or JEWELRY20 for an additional 20% off fine or silver jewelry.

Even better, many items are available for online order and store pickup, so if you need something in a hurry, they’ve got you covered. Not that you would ever leave anything to the last minute, of course. Just hypothetically.

Time for our favorite undies

Do I post everysingletime Aerie has a deal on panties? Yes. Yes, I do. I’m not sorry. Their stuff is cute and comfy and pretty durable and I don’t know when I reached an age where underwear costs upwards of $20+ per piece at “department stores,” but I’m not spending that kind of cash. So! Right now Aerie has panties at $35 for 10, but if you add 10 to your cart and apply coupon code SPRING, it brings the total down to just $25. $2.50/pair?? That’s cheaper than the stuff that comes in packages at the big box stores.

Shipping is free with ShopRunner (and ShopRunner is free if you have PayPal), otherwise it’s a flat $7 on orders up to $50, after which it’s free. (And yes, there’s lots of other stuff on sale, too, of course.)

Be forewarned that the site is running pretty slow right now, but it’s worth it to muscle through if you like their stuff. Also: If you’re new to Aerie, be advised that they are definitely Juniors sizing. (In other words: Those of us who aren’t teens need to size up!)

For the young (and young at heart)

I’m not a huge fan of Forever 21 if I’m looking for, you know, clothing which will stand the test of time (both in terms of style and durability), but my girlchild looooooves them, and even I have to admit they sometimes have cute stuff. So this deal is for her, and anyone else who needs, uhhh, unicorn bath salts and a snarky crop top.

Right now they’re running “4 Days of Deals” where you can click to take a ride on the ferris wheel (yeah, marketing is weird, y’all) and get a coupon. You could get a percentage off, or buy 1 get 1, or even a gift card! Combine that with the sales already going, or use coupon code TAKE5 to just take $5 off your $5.01+ order. You can choose free ship-to-store, or shipping starts at around $6. So there’s some good deals to be had, depending on what you’re wanting.

I do feel like I need to wear sunglasses while browsing the site, though. So. Much. Glitter.

Best LOFT sale ever? Maybe!

Listen, I have shopped many a LOFT sale in my time and gritted my teeth and paid the shipping because the prices were so good and the clothing so cute. (Example: I did indeed buy the blouse I was gushing about in this post well over a year ago and I still get tons of compliments every time I wear it because it’s amaaaaazing.) I’ve never seen them have a great sale and free shipping at the same time, and I’ve accepted that.

Until today. Today, the sale is on just about everything (and that includes an extra 60% off the most deeply-discounted Clearance items), and you can use coupon code SURPRISE for free shipping on any size order. It’s like Christmas came early! Just get a move on, because it ends tonight.

Heads up for shoe deals

I’ll confess to being slightly less enamored of 6pm.com since they went to a $50 minimum for free shipping (boooo…), but I do still check over there periodically because sometimes the deals are worth it, especially if you have a bunch of shopping to do. Well, today would be a good day to stock up—they’re doing a Tax Week Sale, with some of the lowest prices I’ve seen there since Black Friday.

You know they have more than shoes, too, right? I mean, I’m not saying I’m going to buy myself this rose gold moto jacket, necessarily, but if I was, I sure would rather pay the current $35 price for it than the original $195….

If you were planning to outfit your rapidly-growing kids (or yourself) for the season change, anyway, you may just find some awesome deals. Check it out.
