Sunday Savings

Confession time.

If you've been reading this blog for a while you probably know I tend to get obsessed with things. Often. Everything from taco flavored potato chips to crazy reality shows to entering giveaways starts as something small for me and then becomes much bigger.

I guess I have an addictive personality.

My most recent obsession is online shopping. I think the combination of loving to shop, having a baby that is hard to shop with, and having lotsss of time to kill online (while I'm at work...I'm a receptionist, so it's okay!) has sort of created this online shopping monster...

Muahhahaaha... (that's an evil laugh. Could you tell?)

The only thing that makes my obsession no-so-bad is that I am not just shopping indiscriminately...

I'm bargain huntin'.

(Say that in your most country accent. Or like Elmer Fudd. Either one works.)

I have been a major fan of sites like Shop at Home and Ebates for cash back (note, those are referral links), I use Retail Me Not to find coupon codes, and I stalk Slickdeals to find bargains that others have posted.

I really am sooo addicted.

I know that this post might just seem like an excuse to post my referral links (promise it's not.(Only the first two links are referrals btw) I just wanted to share with you where a lot of my online time has been spent lately :)

My most recent deal was from American Eagle.

American Eagle and Aerie clearance is an additional 30% off in your cart. When you purchase any 3 items you also get free shipping. There is a code for $10 off of a $35 purchase (78865547) and a code for 15% off of your entire order (either 65023617 [Exp. 01/20] or 35476511). The codes cannot be combined, but you can try both in your cart and see what gives you the best price. The free shipping will be automatically deducted when you have 3 or more items in your cart.

I got these New Balance Cross Trainers, and 3 other small fill in items (ahem) for $27 using the $10 off of $35 code.The shoes alone were originally $64.50. I think it was a pretty sweet deal...

If you are in need of a new pair of shoes for the gym and wear a size 6 or 6.5 you should definitely check this out. There are lots of other cold weather clothes on clearance too, so you should be able to find something great!

So, are you a bargain shopper? Do you have any tips or suggestions that would help fuel the fire (not that I need it).


  1. ooh i always want to be on top of the deals but there's sooooo much stuff out there. it makes my head spin.

  2. Using coupon codes is a great way to save money. I like to recommend for more coupon codes and discounts.
