Women’s Must-Haves

Like a Phoenix rising from crunchy-granola ashes, the Birkenstock sandal has remerged into the fashion landscape, taking over the sidewalks and runways everywhere. If you wanted in on the trend, but didn’t want to spend a bunch of money on a sandal, Nordstrom Rack is marking down a bunch of really great styles.


Once November hits, commercials turn festive, stores think gifting, and it’s a snowball effect of holiday planning. But if you want to beat the craziness and grab some good presents to ward off any holiday anxiety (or just get yourself something), Amazon is marking down some really great jewelry from brands like Alex & Ani, Michael Kors, Kate Spade and more.


Whether you wear TOMS for the ease of never having to tie your shoes, or you are into their philanthropic background, this is one deal you should take advantage of. Head over to Nordstorm Rack for their rather large TOMS sale. Plus, they’ve come a long way from just simple, canvas slip-ons.

The Smashbox Master Class Palette: Lighting Theory came out this summer to much deserved fanfare. It has four color correctors, three contour shades, three highlighting shades, three blushes and 16 eyeshadows. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. But, it’s only $45 at Sephora right now, so I’m not too exhausted to pick one up.


20% off with code BFF20

I’m a huge fan of Too Faced, and I feel that this is a brand everyone should try at least once. Even if you’re a Too Faced vet, this 20% off sale is perfect you too. Use the code BFF20 and everything (except for new collections and sale items) gets 20% taken off, so don’t be shy. Stock up on Better Than Sex mascara and Melted Matte lipstick while you can.

FYI, if you enter your email (I know, I know), they’ll send you a code to bump that up to 25% off.

Home Goods

The holidays are basically here and that means travel. Lots and lots of travel. If you’ve exhausted your luggage to death and need a quick, reliable replacement, Amazon’s massive Luggage and Travel Gear Gold Box can save you. Grab individual pieces, luggage sets, accessories (like the ever essential packing cubes) and more. But this deal has an itinerary to stick to, and will take off at the end of the day.


If those copies of Monopoly and Risk are gathering dust in your game cabinet, you can stock it with better options during Amazon’s one-day board game sale.

Note: The direct link to the board game sale is having all sorts of problems, so this link will take you to the Gold Box page; just look for the board game sale near the top.

Options include the popular Kingdom Builder and Alhambra, but be sure to head over to Amazon to see the rest.

Bonus: It’s not technically part of this sale, but Settlers of Catan is also down to an all-time low $30 at the moment.


Etekcity Dimmable LED Desk Lamp, $22 with code SFQZHAP2

$22 is a great price for any LED desk lamp, but it’s one of the best we’ve ever seen for a model that includes a USB charging port and adjustable color temperature, which can seriously boost your productivity.


50% off candles and car scents with the code FIFTYOFF

Yankee Candle, makers of everyone’s moms’ favorite candles, is giving you 50% off candles and car scents with the code FIFTYOFF. Start off your holiday season with a whole bunch of different scents to help you get into the spirit. Or to create a nice ambiance during very festively-scented seance. Either way.

8-Outlet/6-USB Aukey Surge Protector, $24 with code AU3STRIP | 4-Outlet/4-USB Aukey Surge Protector, $16 with code AU2STRIP

Nobody ever has enough power outlets or USB charging ports around their house, but these Aukey surge protectors can solve both problems at once. Just be sure to note the promo codes.


If coworkers have been stealing your food out of the office fridge, or you just want to keep a couple drinks cold at the beach, this flexible lunch bag is basically made out of ice packs. Just freeze it overnight, and it’ll keep your food and drinks chilled for up to 10 hours.

Today’s $13 deal is an all-time low, and well below its usual $18-$20.


Polk Audio’s PSW10 has long been a go-to value pick for anyone building a home theater audio system, and you can pick one up for $88 on Amazon today, a match for the best price they’ve listed this year.

After much research, I bought this exact model several years ago, and absolutely loved it up until the day I replaced it with one of VIZIO’s surround sound bar systems. It’s not the best subwoofer out there by any means, but it’s imminently affordable, and should be more than adequate anyone who’s not an audiophile.


With a good set of silicone cooking gloves, you’ll have full finger control when you handle hot pans in the kitchen. Hell, you could use them to just pick up a piece of meat directly off the grill, like some sort of barbecue superhero. For $7, why not?

The Big Sales

Get all the geeky gifts you’ll need during ThinkGeek’s 30% off sale. Choose from year-round decor or apparel, or holiday-specific (you’d better believe I’m eyeing that Artoo stocking. It beeps!) for your decorating needs come December 1st.


25% off Wear-Now Styles with code LAYERUP

Every time that there’s a sale at Madewell, it’s hard to resist not putting 17 things into my cart. I need everything in the picture above, and you should spend the day shopping, because with the code LAYERUP, you’ll get 25% off their “Wear-Now Styles” which is full of perfect fall styles.


If a Gold Box could ever be perfectly fit to the season, this boot sale is it. Amazon is kicking down prices on a bunch of great boots. Knee-high, ankle, flat or heeled, this deal is full of brands like Kate Spade, Marc Fisher, Nine West, Jessica Simpson, Lucky and more. But these boots were made for walking, and so was this one-day-only deal.


20% off all dresses, plus free shipping, with the code WINWIN

Anthropologie consistently churns out adorable clothing, and with 20% off all dresses, plus free shipping, with the code WINWIN, you can also look consistently adorable. That 20% goes towards every dress, sale styles included


Another day, another J.Crew Factory markdown. This time, get 40% off all new arrivals (price as marked), plus free shipping. They just added a bunch of fall styles, from wool coats to sweaters, so you’ll easily be able to find something to add to your wardrobe.


Shopbop consistently has those hard-to-find pieces that really make a wardrobe stand out. And with their surprise sale going on right now, you can get those pieces for up to 40% off. Brands like Mac Jacobs, rag & bone, Carven, and more are marked down.


If reliability is something you crave in a pair of shoes (if it isn’t, you may need to reconsider), I bet you have Cole Haan in your closet. And if you’re looking for a new pair but don’t want to spend the normal asking price, Nordstrom Rack is having a huge sale on everything Cole Haan. Men’s and women’s styles, plus handbags are included.


Every year, Uniqlo likes to thank everyone with their Arigato Sale. This year, for their 10th anniversary, there are huge discounts across multiple departments for both men and women. And that makes for a pretty good gesture of thanks. The only downside is you’ll have Mr. Roboto stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
