Day 3 Big Prize Week Winners (SHOLDIT and SOL REPUBLIC RELAYS)

Did you love today’s contest for either the SHOLDIT or the SOL REPUBLIC RELAYS? I’m like a kid on Christmas morning every time someone offers me a cool product I can pass on to y’all. It just makes me happy.

Now’s the hard part… I have just two prizes, so we can only have two winners for today. The winner-picker-thingie (technical term) has spoken, and our winners are: Commenter 81, Marilyn, for the SHOLDIT, and commenter 109, Jessica B., for the RELAYS earbuds. Congratulations, ladies—please check your email! The sooner we connect, the sooner I can get your prizes sent out to you.

Big thanks to all who played, and extra-special thanks to the folks at SOL REPUBLIC and SHOLDIT (as well as SHOLDIT’s helper elves at Tyler Barnett PR) for the generous prize donations.

I know Thanksgiving is not a hang-out-online day for most of us, so consider this your friendly reminder that 1) I will be around tomorrow, but not posting a ton (all that pie isn’t going to eat itself, people), and 2) I will, however, be putting up an awesome giveaway in the morning (which will run all day). If there’s any way for you to check in, please do, because if you like to cook, you are not going to want to miss this one. (And if for some reason you have to miss tomorrow, remember that Black Friday is the biggest prize day of ‘em all, not to mention that I’ll be parked here all day finding you deals and steals so that you don’t have to go fight the crowds.)

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. I’m grateful for all of you!

Deals at dELIA*s

Guess how unhip I am? I am so unhip, I have been (both mentally and in print) calling this store Delia’s. For years. But no, its official name is dELIA*s. Because that’s how they roll.

Anyway. My teenager loves dELIA*s, regardless of how it’s spelled. I’m about to be a total hero because right now you can use coupon code YESPLZ for 40% off everything (30% off clearance) and free shipping on any size order.

For this, I forgive them for the weird spelling.

We love Scribblenauts

Okay, in truth, my kids have outgrown the original Scribblenauts, but it was a huge favorite of theirs for years on their Nintendo DSs. While my experience with the Nintendo Wii U is limited, I’ve heard great things about it, and Sribblenauts Unlimited for the Wii U has great reviews. Today it’s just $11.99 at Amazon—its lowest price ever. If you want both a deal and a super-fun game that really makes your kids think, this is the one to grab.

Oooooh, I just noticed this one has a multiplayer mode. I’m going to pretend I didn’t see that, because I am not buying a new game system….

Kick it with a cheap scooter

If a kid you love has a scooter on their wish list, check out these Razor A Kick Scooters at Amazon—although regularly priced around $40, select colors are just $17 right now.

Fair warning: Looks like only the “girly” colors are cheap, but I’m also seeing prices fluctuate, so it might be worth keeping an eye on if you want a different color at the reduced price. [Edited to add: Looks like the blue one is now $17, as well!]

Beat the rush at Best Buy

Hey, many of the big deals that’ll be happening at Best Buy this week are already live, like $75 off iPads and Minis. True, they’ll be $100 off if you wait until Friday, but they also might sell out. You can look at the current deals and compare them with Friday’s Doorbusters and make your own decision, is my point. (And yes, Friday’s Doorbusters start on Thursday. Because Best Buy is not good at calendaring.)

(Calendaring is totally a word. My spellcheck didn’t even flag it.)

Day 2 Big Prize Week Winners (Une Bobine and HUB IT)

Did you make it into today’s giveaway of fun tech accessories, Une Bobine and HUB IT? Seems like plenty of us have Cord Issues.

I’m already baking pies (pie!!) so I will make this short and sweet: The winner of the Une Bobine is commenter 97, Linda; and the winner of the HUB IT is commenter 13, Becky. Congratulations, ladies—please check your email! I’ll be collecting your addresses and shipping out your goodies shortly.

Big thanks to all who played, and special thanks to the generous folks Fuse Chicken and Eggtronic both for having eggcellent (see what I did there…?) company names and for donating the prizes for this giveaway. Generous sponsors rock!

Didn’t win today? Turn that frown upside down; tomorrow’s another chance to snag something wonderful, I promise.

It’s beginning to look a lot like K-cups and coats

Of all the things currently being offered on deals at Bon-Ton, this feels like an interesting combo to offer you, and yet, here I am. Yes, they’ve got a bunch of Black Friday deals already up, and yes, they’re offering free shipping to everyone with coupon code FREESHIP. But here’s what you shouldn’t miss:

1) Take an additional $60 off any $100+ coat purchase (full-price or sale, though the usual exclusions for Doorbusters/clearance/yellow dot stuff applies) with coupon code ZTHXCOATS14.

2) They have a ton of great deals going on K-cups, too. If not for you, well, there’s all kinds of cute holiday gifty-box bundles of ‘em in the Doorbusters. Perfect for bringing as a hostess gift when you’re out visiting, if you know your hosts have a Keurig. Or just get some for yourself.

Hey, I just realized this isn’t so weird, after all. Stay warm from the inside out, or from the outside in. Perfect!

Time for new dishes and stuff?

The Black Friday savings are already on over at Pfaltzgraff, with a ton of doorbusters, plus everything else is an additional 30% off with coupon code BLACK30. Shipping is free on $75+.

Bear in mind that in addition to the dishes you know and love from Pfaltzgraff, they also carry all kinds of tableware and cookware and holiday trimmings and stuff, too. Might be a good place to knock out some gifts.
