For as ridiculously cheap as e.l.f. Cosmetics is, they have some outstanding products. Today’s the first day of their End of Season Sale, with deals for under $1. I recently fell in love with their Hydrating Bubble Mask and the Liquid Highlighter (though they aren’t included in the sale), which I highly recommend.
Burt’s Bees is on the top of my list for when it comes to natural skin care products. Right now, they have a few different coupons ranging from 15-20% off select products like hand cream, your favorite lip balm, facial cleansers and more. Just clip the coupons on the product pages and pick up some great stocking stuffers.
Amazon has a ton of beauty and grooming items for up to 30% off. Brands like L’Oreal, Garnier, OPI, Real Techniques, Mineral Fusion, The Body Shop, Olay, and more. Just look for the products that have coupons and make sure to clip them before you check out.
The Big Sales
Net-a-Porter is the place to shop for designer clothing without being looked at funny. And with their huge sale going on right now, you may actually be able to afford something without refinancing your mortgage or selling your first born. Get up to 70% off clothes, shoes, bags, and more, to make you feel better about how this year went.
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, Cole Haan is taking an extra 30% off their sale section with the code SAVE. Finally get a pair of ZERØGRAND’s (or the newer 2.ZERØGRAND’s) or waterproof boots that you’ll probably need in less than a month.
Target may be a vast, black hole in which you end up with 17 things that you didn’t come for, and none of what you did, but it sure knows how to gie good deals. Right now, spend $50 or more on any clothing, shoe, or accessory purchase, and they’ll automatically send you a $10 gift card to be used on anything you want.
DSW is the destination for affordable, brand name shoes and when Amazon has a discount on gift cards, it’s insane how much money you’ll save. Save $10 on any DSW email gift card worth $50 or more when you use the code DSW10 at checkout. Grab boots and shoes for everyone without doing anything except shopping.
If you’ve always wanted to be the kind of person that wears actual pajamas to bed instead of an old t-shirt from college and boxers, Nordstrom Rack’s Natori sale may be able to help out. Slip into something more comfortable, like a quilted robe or velour pants.
If you have any football fans on your list, or you want to hop on a bandwagon late in the season, you can pick up a few different styles of gear in this Gold Box. Hoodies, hats, socks, and tees are all marked down for one day only, but as always with Amazon and their inability to stay consistent (like a lot of the NFL right now), teams and sizes vary.
It ain’t Clear the Rack, but it’ll do. Nordstrom Rack is taking huge discounts off almost 500 items, for both men and women. Last minute gifts, things for yourself, holiday party outfits, you name it and this sale has something. Things start at just $5, but they’re already selling out, so you might want to head over there now.
Because H&M does tend to be on the buy now, throw out later track of fashion, look for the premium pieces, rather than the lower end ones. Go against your entire nature and change the drop down to show Price: Highest to Lowest. Trust me on this one.
It’s obviously not sandal weather on the East Coast, but it is somewhere. If you wanted to grab Birkenstocks a while ago and thought the price was a little...crazy, Nordstrom Rack has a bunch of styles (including discontinued ones) on sale. And, for those of us near the Atlantic, who knew Birkenstock made boots?
Athleta is the Old Navy/GAP/Banana Republic brand that focuses solely on activewear. And while they normally don’t have sales, but they’re having their awesome up to 50% off Semi-Annual sale. There’s basically anything you could need for workout and hang out, from linen pants, to moisture-wicking tanks.
Get your winter apparel in order with down for $60 and under at Uniqlo. Pick up their down vest for just $40, for men and women, or opt for a full outerwear with their classic Ultra Light Down Jacket for $60, both men and women as well.
Layer up with $25 flannels, for both guys and girls, from American Eagle. Basically any color you could want in plaid is on sale, no code needed. You’re gonna need multiple to cycle through the season, so you might as well get a couple while they’re on sale.
Now is the time to get the hell outside, mainly because the weather is still pretty mild, but also because our president is hellbent on getting rid of public lands and you may not be able to hike anywhere by next year. So, REI is helping you get outside with up to 40% off select items, no code needed.
Amazon is steeped in discounts with this Gold Box, filled with loose leaf sets and these beautiful ceramic tea brewing cups from Tea Forté. These would make great gifts for the tea lover on your Christmas list, or for yourself, if you’re attempting to drink less coffee and survive a day like a functioning human adult. But, this deal will only last until the products sell out, or through the end of the day, so don’t wait oolong.
You can volunteer yourself as tribute to pick up this Blu-ray collection of all of the Hunger Games movies. This typically sells for around $35, but is just $20 today. Just remember this is a Gold Box deal, so this it will only last throughout the day or until the product sells out. May the odds ever be in your favor.
If you want to grind your own coffee beans at home (and you really should if you want the best flavor), you could do a lot worse than the Cuisinart DBM-8. It’s affordable, it’s dead simple to use, it includes 18 coarseness settings, and it looks great.
We’ve all had to throw away leftovers or cuts of meat and cheese that spent a little too much time in the fridge or freezer, but vacuum sealing your foods can keep them safe from freezer burn pretty much indefinitely, and dramatically extend their shelf life everywhere else.
It sounds like an expensive proposition, but today only, Amazon’s selling the well-reviewed FoodSaver Starter Kit for just $55, complete with everything you need to get started. Of course you can use this to store meats in the freezer for a long time, but it can also keep cheese from molding, lettuce from wilting, or cookies from going stale, just to name a few examples. Think about how much food you throw away, and you’ll get a sense of just how quickly this purchase could pay for itself.
These top-of-the-line containers are made from stain-resistant and odor-blocking materials that are safe for the dishwasher, microwave, and freezer. With built-in vents, they’re ready to go in the microwave without splattering and are 100% leak proof.
They were $4 cheaper over Black Friday, but if you missed that and are in still in need of some nice containers, today’s $20 is a good price.
Those big, fancy swing arm lamps aren’t just for architects and lawyers in dramatic films; you can clip this one from OxyLED onto just about any desk for $47 today with code OXT4SPRO. That’s the best price we’ve ever seen, and even if you don’t need it yourself, it could make a nice gift for the night owl in your life.
iOttie’s been turning out ultra-popular smartphone dash mounts for years, and several models are cheaper than ever in today’s Amazon Gold Box.
The star of the show here is iOttie’s Qi-compatible mount, which would make a great gift for any new iPhone 8 or iPhone X owners. It’s similar to their iOttie OneTouch mounts, except that it’ll charge your phone wirelessly as soon as you mount it, so you don’t have to fiddle with any cords. This has sold for $50 pretty much since it was released, but while supplies last, it’s down to $35.
Even if you already have a good set of Bluetooth earbuds, it never hurts to have a spare for your gym bag or luggage, especially when you can get them for this cheap. Three different styles of Anker’s popular SoundBuds are on sale today, all for $26 or less. The Slims are great for general use, the Curves are ideal for exercise, and the SoundBuds Life boast a whopping 20 hours of battery life. You can’t go wrong with any of them.
