Tired of reading all over Facebook about how your friends would rather do anything today rather than shop? You’ve come to the right place, sisters and brothers. You’ve gotta buy some stuff, why not buy it today when so many things are half price?
Here are some of the best deals I’ve taken advantage of or noticed so far today:
- $100 Gap brands gift cards for $80 at Office Max. I already bought two $50 gift cards at Office Max this morning and spent most of them at Old Navy, on Christmas gifts plus a few basics for me. Now I’m hoping to pick up another one to use online at Athleta, where the coupon code FIT20 takes off 20 percent, even on sale items. (Thanks, WantNot.net!)
- 50% off in store at Old Navy. I even got half off a Wii game (Lego Star Wars, The Clone Wars, $10 after discount) and a bottle of Mexican coke from the cooler.
- 3 for $30 at the Body Shop, plus the $25 tote. Teacher and hostess gifts = done, with a few goodies left over for me.
- $15 dresses and $12 leggings at Tea!
- Furby Boom for $29. Last night my kid saw a Furby Boom commercial and fell in love, and I realized when I saw it and read up on it that it is actually something she’d love. So I checked on Amazon, and the price for the diagonal stripes version was down to $29. Buy! Sadly, it’s going for $39 now, but keep an eye on it.
- I really wanted the $99 Kindle Fire HD at Best Buy for my 6-year-old, but by the time I tried to buy it last night, they were sold out. Blah. But I did order an LG Optimus F3 4G no-contract phone for Virgin, for $89.99. Hope it’s better than the junky Kyocera phone I have now!
- So many deals at Kohl’s, including lots of half-price toys and a $79 Cuisinart. Unfortunately, I left Kohl’s empty-handed this morning because the lines were just out of control. I may try again this evening though, because my Cuisinart is coming up “unavailable” online. I saw at least one at the store — hope they are still in stock when I go back! You get $15 off for every $50 you spend, plus our local paper had stickers for $10 off $30 spent in store. If you’re shopping online, get 15 percent off with the coupon code ROCKSAVE.
