ThredUp: $15 Credit Extended Today!

ThredUp (an online consignment sale, offering gently-used brand-name kids clothing for amazingly low prices) has extended yesterday’s Cyber Monday offer one more day! First-time shoppers get a $15 credit! (That’s instead of the regular $10 credit for first-time users.) Sign up via this link and use promo code CYBER15 during check-out to get the $15 credit.
Since yesterday, I learned that the $15 credit cannot be applied toward shipping, but there is no required minimum purchase.
You can find a number of items priced from $2.00 to $4.00 on ThredUp, so you should be able to get as many as three items for around $6.95, which is the flat rate for shipping.
You can read more about this deal in yesterday’s post.

ThredUp: $15 off for new users today only!

Today, Cyber Monday, is a great day to start using ThredUp, if you haven’t already. On Cyber Monday, first-time users get $15 off their purchase! (That’s instead of the regular $10 credit for first-time users.) Sign up via this link and use promo code CYBER15 during check-out.
ThredUp is an online consignment sale, offering gently-used brand-name kids clothing for amazingly low prices. If you’re new to the site, keep in mind that inventory changes constantly; you’ll want to check back often to see what’s been newly added!
I’ve personally been very pleased with items I’ve ordered through ThredUp. It’s been a great way to fill in gaps in my children’s wardrobes. I’ve even gotten several items new with tags – at 70% off!
Normally, there’s a $6.95 flat shipping rate – or shipping is free with orders of $40 or more. But right now you can get free shipping on your first order by using promo code: SHIPNOV12.

Update: If the site won’t allow more than one promo code, you’ll have to decide between paying for shipping (usually a flat $6.95) or getting only $10 credit (instead of today’s $15) by using this link and promo code SHIPNOV12 to get free shipping.

What are you waiting for?!

Here’s how you can get the KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer ($449.99 value) for as low as $172:

These are going fast! The seven colors above are available
as of this posting...
The advertised price is: $399.99, but...
  • Use coupon code (CCYT115) to subtract 20% (i.e. $80).
  • Get $90 in Kohl’s cash (for spending $320).
  • Go through ShopAtHome to get 5% back: ($16 = 5% of $320)
  • Submit the KitchenAid rebate and decline the $12 magazine offer (see the fine print) and get $42 back in rebates.
Get the mixer for $172 (plus applicable tax and shipping surcharge of $7.50).
You can also try these options:
  • Use coupon code (BLACKFRI) to subtract 15% (i.e. $60). (You should still get $90 in Kohl’s Cash, i.e. $15 back in Kohl’s Cash for every $50 spent.)
  • Go through Ebates to get 6% back: ($19.20 = 6% of $320)
  • Use a rewards debit or credit card to get even more back and get a better deal.

ING Direct: Open a Checking Account & Make $125

There are certainly ample opportunities for spending on “Black Friday” weekend, but here’s an opportunity to make some money!
I signed up last year, so I know it really works!
You can make $125 when you open a new ING Direct Orange checking account between 11/23 and 11/25.
  • Open the account and make 10 purchases within 45 days with your debit card (which will be mailed to you). You’ll want to deposit enough to make the 10 purchases.
  • Your $125 bonus will be automatically deposited on day 50.
And here’s an opportunity for your children: Each child can make $10 when you open a Kids Savings Account; ING Direct will automatically deposit $10 in each child’s account who is a new customer.
When you open an ING account, email your friends about the deal with a special referral link ING will provide you so you can earn another $100 if two friends open new accounts! (The normal referral bonus is $10, so the extra is part of the Black Friday promotion!)

ThredUP: online consignment shopping

We love seasonal consignment sales! But finding everything we need – or even that one specific item in just the right size and color to complete an outfit – can be difficult...

Thankfully there’s ThredUP, an online consignment shop I recently discovered. From my experience, this virtual store specializes in top name brands in excellent condition with a wide variety of children’s clothes, currently starting at $3.00!
Right now, ThredUp is celebrating its newly redesigned website by offering customers $5.00 off until Sunday, November 18! Just use promo code SHOP5 at checkout.

In addition, first-time shoppers get a $10 sign-up bonus! So, check it out – and tell your friends. You can get a $10 credit for each friend who signs up through your referral link and makes a purchase.
