It is fairly easy to find coupons. It is not difficult to find out about well advertized sales. What isn’t so easy to locate are what I call the “hidden deals”. They are out there, but not heavily advertized. Here is a quick look at some deals and offers that are going on right now, and that you might not have heard about.
Starbucks has a special deal on their oatmeal. Now through January 27, 2013, you can get either flavor of their Steel-Cut Oatmeal with Old-Fashioned oats for $2.00, (with the purchase of any beverage). Choose from “Classic” (with dried fruit, nut medley, and brown sugar), or “Hearty Blueberry” (with fresh blueberries, a fruit, nut, and seed medley, and agave syrup).
Oriental Trading is having a “Winter Sale”. Save up to 75% of over 800 items. They sell in bulk quantities, so now is a good time to stock up on cute birthday “gift bag” items for the guests that will be invited to your children’s birthday parties this year. You can also find Christmas related items, and Christian items on sale (and also sold in bulk quantities).
Oriental Trading also has a Valentine’s Day sale going on. Save up to 50% on over 225 Valentine’s Day related items. These are also sold in bulk quantities.
Kmart has a “Christmas Clearance” sale. Items included in the sale are up to 90% off. Need a new artificial tree, or a few more Christmas ornaments? Now is a good time to stock up on Christmas wrap and gift bags.
Target is doing their Clearance Sale on toys right now! It includes LEGO, Barbie, Lalaloopsy, Playskool, Play-Doh, and even a drivable Honda Utility ATV with realistic sounds. You should probably shop this one from the website, because many of these toys are listed as “not sold in stores”.
Bed, Bath, and Beyond has a Clearance Sale. It includes Christmas scented Yankee Candles (some of which are only $0.99). Holiday themed towel holders, lotion dispensers, shower curtains, and towels are under $5.00 each. There are also great deals on kitchen knives, bedding, throw pillows, and plenty of potpourri.
Victoria’s Secret has a whole bunch of Clearance Sales going on! Bras are $14.99 and up. Panties are $3.99 and up. Their “Sleep Sale” has up to 40% off 150 styles of sleepwear. Swimsuits are between 25% and 60% off for over 300 styles. Items in the clothing Clearance Sale are up to 50% off and include hundreds of styles.
