Notes on some of Yesterday's Deal is giving a refund for any shipping charges on purchases yesterday. I talked to customer service three times yesterday and then got an email from them this morning. I ordered a non-holiday item and I'm still get a refund - so it's not just on holiday items (I'm guessing that given the time of year, everything is considered a "holiday item"). All you have to do is email them ( with your order number and let them know you couldn't get the promo code to work, and you'll be refunded your shipping fees. Keep in mind that it may take up to 14 days to see the amount credited back to your card. I did ask them if they would give free shipping refund to those who tried to order yesterday, couldn't get the shipping code to work, and decided not to order as a result. I haven't heard back yet, but my betting they will. If you haven't set up a minted account yet, you can still get the $25 credit off of your first purchase of $30 or more. Shipping will be a flat rate of $7.95 - but has been upgraded for the holiday season to a 3 day shipping (rather than the usual 5-7 day). So your first order will cost you at least $12.95, but that is for $30 worth of products! If you haven't placed your order yet, you may want to go through ebates and get 5% cash back!
If you purchased the Plum District voucher for the products, you have until tomorrow (November 30th) to make your purchases and get the extra $20 in free products. The Plum District site is currently down for maintenance, so I can't check to see if the ecomom deal is still available, so I'll go ahead and explain in case you still want to get in on it!
1) Go to and purchase the ecomom voucher: $25 for $50 voucher.
2) If you are new to plum district and haven't signed up yet, do so right here and get a $5 credit that you can apply to this deal.
3) If you haven't used the promo code: pdx10 - you can use it to get 10% off
4) Go to and find $70 worth of products that you'd like
- $20 will automatically be taken off because they've extended their black friday/cyber monday deal until tomorrow ($20 off a purchase of $50 or more)
- you will also get free shipping because you have $50 or more in your cart
- then use your plum district voucher number in the promo code section and that will bring your balance to $0
5) In the end you'll have paid as low as $17.50 (for the plum district voucher) for $70 worth of products shipped to your door!

Lot 18

My Favorite Deals

Our company has left and I'm sitting here browsing all the deals while eating left-over apple pie! What could be better? So, if you're like me, and avoiding any shopping area like the plague, you may be interested in some deals you can get right from the comfort of your own home!

Plum District is offering a special $10 off code for today only! This would be an excellent time to use any sign-up credit you may have stored in your account, or, if you haven't signed up for Plum District yet - then you can do that today (click here) and get $5 added to your account AND use the $10 promo code: enjoy10. My favorite deals that they have today are:

$18 for $36 Worth of Customized Kids Labels and Stickers from You do not have to get kids labels on this deal - you can customize any kind of label/sticker. They are really cute and quite affordable. You can get 80 - 1" round stickers for $8.99 - so the $36 credit will go quite a ways. Then you take off your sign-up credit and $10 promo code and it's only $3!!!

$25 for $50 Worth of All-Natural, Organic Products at Ecomom[.com] - once again, you do not have to buy kids products on this site. I got this deal last time they offered it and bought the coolest chalkboard coaster set and some really fun wrapping paper. So, you can get this $50 credit after the $10 promo and your $5 sign-up bonus for only $10! Plus, ecomom offers free shipping!!! :) 


Lot 18 is offering free shipping through Monday! They also have a super nice 2009 Rosenberg Estates Alexander Valley Zinfandel Duo (2 bottles) for only $49.98! These are normally $50/bottle. When you factor in the free shipping - that's a super deal! I think of these sorts of deals as being really good for sending to a boss, or good client, or maybe as a thank-you to a family member for hosting during the holidays! 


Tippr is another deal site and they are offering fandango movie tickets - 2 for only $12!!! And, if you're new to Tippr, then you can get an instant $5 credit just for signing up - and that will apply to the ticket purchase. So you can get two tickets for only $3.50 each!!!

1) Go to and enter your zip code to see if there are theaters in your area that accept fandango tickets.
2) If so, click here and set up a free account with tippr (another deal site) and you'll get a $5 instant credit!
3) No matter where you actually live, go ahead and look on the upper right and change the city to Atlanta.
4) Then click on the movie tickets 2 for $12 banner. Then click the red "buy now" button.
5) After your $5 sign-up credit automatically applies, you'll get both tickets for $7.
6) On Monday, you'll get an email saying your voucher code is ready.
7) When you're ready to go to a movie, log-in to your tippr account, get your code, and go to

Movie Tickets - $3.50 each

The children are napping (and some adults too), and all the Thanksgiving food is in the oven - so I thought I'd take a few minutes to post this great movie ticket deal! If you're unfamiliar with buying movie tickets through, don't be nervous; it's super easy! This is what you do to get these tickets for so cheap:
1) Go to and enter your zip code to see if there are theaters in your area that accept fandango tickets.
2) If so, click here and set up a free account with tippr (another deal site) and you'll get a $5 instant credit!
3) No matter where you actually live, go ahead and look on the upper right and change the city to Atlanta.
4) Then click on the movie tickets 2 for $12 banner. Then click the red "buy now" button.
5) After your $5 sign-up credit automatically applies, you'll get both tickets for $7.
6) On Monday, you'll get an email saying your voucher code is ready.
7) When you're ready to go to a movie, log-in to your tippr account, get your code, and go to
 - Find the movie you want to watch, and click the purchase online option.
 - Use your code and they'll be free! Print and take with you to the theater! :)

Since the code will not expire until January 12th, I went ahead and bought it and will just "keep it on hand" for when we want to go to a movie. And you can buy up to 10 deals (that means 20 tickets)! You'll only get the first two at $3.50, the rest will be $6.00 each. But that's still a great deal! In my area, movie tickets are $10 each - so being able to go to the movies for $12 is a heck of a lot better deal than $20 (for two of us)! This deal expires on Monday - so don't wait too long!!!

Thanksgiving is a really special time of year for me. It brings back such amazingly wonderful memories of when I was a child. It was when all of my family on my dad's side got together - for 4-5 days!!! All of the cousins put on a Thanksgiving Day show that we prepared for months in advance. We sang, danced, told jokes, did skits. Every one of the cousins was involved in some way - and there were a lot of us. We even made programs and charged admission one year! Nobody went shopping the day after Thanksgiving, but all the cousins had their picture taken with Santa and then we went roller skating (yes, I'm dating myself). Then on Saturday, the kids made brunch with Grandma, parents watched college football games, and we played, and played, and played...outside! No wii, dsi, dvd's, or cell phones! Everyone was just so thankful to be together! So my wish for you this Thanksgiving is not that you find great deals on Black Friday, but that you have a wonderful time with your family - making wonderful memories that will make you smile and bring tears to your eyes 25 years later!

Target Diaper Deal

Thanks to my friend Hollie at WeLoveFree, I scored an amazing deal on diapers today at Target! And then I had an extra coupon that made the deal even sweeter! Here's what I did:

Huggies Diapers are on sale for $8.99/jumbo pack and when you buy 3 packs, they are offering a $5 gift card.
I Bought 3 packages of Huggies Slip-On Diapers @ $8.99 = $26.97
Used 3 Target Coupons for $2/1
Used 1 Manufacturer Coupon for $3/1
Used 2 Manufacturer Coupons for $2/1
Paid $13.97 + tax = $14. 73
Got back a $5 gift card from the Target deal
Got back a 2nd $5 gift card from a coupon I had for buying $25 in Kimberly Clark products
Net Cost for 3 packages of diapers: $4.73
These are not my favorite type of diaper, but for about $1.50/package - I can deal with it! :)

Deals for today!

A fresh new deal site is up and running - and we all know what that means, right...that the best sign-up deals are available now! They're trying to get subscribers/buyers - so they're offering more in free sign-up credit now, than they will probably ever do again! Other than Lot 18, I've never seen a credit as high as $25, so please don't hesitate on this one! When you sign up through this link, you'll get a $25 credit towards your first purchase of $30 or more. So it does require you to actually spend $5 on their site. But given that you're getting at $25, that's not too shabby! Great timing for Christmas presents! 

Coldwater Creek is offering 20% + totally free shipping today! No minimum amount to order and it will apply to clearance/outlet purchases! Plus, if you go through ShopAtHome, you'll earn 2% back on your purchase. I bought these Homespun Napkins several months ago when they had a similar deal going, and I LOVE them! Using cloth napkins is a great way to reduce paper usage and save money! Plus, they make the every-day hum-drum just a little more special (makes me think of those "Fancy Nancy" books)! :) The napkins are normally $19.95 for a set of 4, on clearance for $9.99, only $7.99 with the 20% discount + free shipping + you'll get a whopping $.16 back in your ShopAtHome account! Not much, but every little bit counts, right? :)
