Black Friday has come and gone. (We slept in, decorated the house, and went to a movie.) Cyber Monday is history. (I spent a couple of hours using some of my very best online deals.) But if you think the bargains are gone, you’re wrong. They’ve just begun!
I’ve gathered some of the very best, online, post-cyber-Monday deals. Just click through the images to access the sales and specials. There’s something for everyone on your nice list!
If you have a budding Broadway or pop songster on your list — and aren’t ready to spend hundreds of dollars every month on private voice lessons, you need the Singing Success program. As a former voice teacher, musical theater major, performer — and mother of some of the same — and as a long-time user of the Singing Success program, I can personally vouch for the quality of this program.
If you want to learn to mix, learn from the Seth Riggs Method expert, Brett Manning. And get it at a fabulous price.
One-day sale extension! Get 20% off everything in the store, plus $4.95 shipping. Get Organized has everything you need to store your Christmas decor, get your house in tip top shape for the holidays, or meet one of your New Year’s resolutions — to finally get organized! You’ll find things you didn’t know you needed — and wonder how you lived without them.
[Just got word that they will extend their 10% off deal through December 31,2011, too!]
We first used the Entertainment Books as struggling college students. The plentiful buy-one-get-one deals allowed us to actually go on dates — to places other than our apartment — on a fairly regular basis.
We have continued to use them over the years and wouldn’t go without them. Not only do we use the local coupon books to save on our favorite local restaurants, oil changes, photography, sporting good, shoes, flowers (you get the picture), but we also buy a second book whenever we plan a trip to another state. When we went to Hawaii a few years ago, we used the coupons to save on food, attractions, and car rental.
Local coupon books make a great gift. Destination coupon books for those planning vacations, will be welcome by any traveler. (When I clicked through the link and loaded my shopping cart, the first book was $29.99. All subsequent books were only $20!)
I don’t love cooking, but I love kitchen appliances and gadgets. I know! But if you have a true foodie in your life, Cooking.com is heaven on the web. Right now they have a super Christmas sale going on. Click through and use the coupon code to qualify.
They have quality products and a good rating system to help you find the best products.
My list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning Overstock.com. (It’s true that the president is an old college friend of ours. But they don’t need my blogging help over at that operation.) I’ve been a long-time customer of the newly branded O.co and shop regularly on the site.
An inordinate number of our house fixtures, appliances, furnishings — I could go on and on — are from the big O. When making a significant purchase, I always, always, always check at Overstock. They don’t always have what I want, but very often they have just the thing I need. (Like our garbage disposers, our dining chairs, our jetted tub chandelier, our sofa table, our shower curtain rods, and every doorknob in our house. Just for example.)
Check out their rock-bottom deals, now with free shipping.
I’m a die-hard Amazon fan. I’ve been buying from them for years and order regularly. They simply have almost every product known to man. And they have fabulous prices and sales.
If you’re not an Amazon Prime member yet, get there. You get free two-day shipping on most items. Did you hear me? Free. Two-day. You can order up until December 22 and still get your packages by Christmas Eve. (College students, staff, and faculty — those with .edu email addresses — can get Prime free.)
For almost a decade, I’ve done most of my Christmas shopping at Amazon. I get amazing selection and the best prices — without setting up a tent in the cold or using pepper spray. Just sayin’.
Whatever. You can make fun of “Walmart people” all you want. But I’m a proud member of the club. Walmart gives value to customers and employs a gazillion people. Win-win. While I’m sure you’ve shopped at a Walmart, you may not have ever tried Walmart.com.
Shopping online allows access to thousands and thousands of products — including online-only special products and deals. If your order $45 or more, many items ship free to your home. Many more can be shipped to your local store for pickup. They also have some wonderful personalized gifts.
My only cyber-Monday purchase this year was at Walmart.com. Found some great bargains right off my kids Christmas lists — and it will show up on my doorstep in a few days, for free.
