This week in deals: Extra 50% off sale items at Tommy Hilfiger

This past weekend was the coldest weekend here in Southern California with temperatures falling downwards of 14 degrees.  For those of you folks that live in climates that reach lower lows, I know it may sound very wimpish of us to complain, but this is a city that prides itself on beautiful weather all year-round (I mean flawless weather).

I can tell that lots of folks stayed home, so I'm interested in finding out if online sales went up and store sales went down.  I went to my local Dollar Tree on Sunday and guess what, not a single person but myself and in a normal scenario there's always a line that runs the length of the store.

With temperatures that are extremely chilling, even for a Chicagoan like myself, I will be doing a lot of online shopping this week.  The top of my shopping list will include an energy efficient space heater.  We have 4 space heaters that spike our electricity bill by double, so we need something that won't eat up too much electricity.  With that said, here are this week's top 5 deals:

 

Deal #1: Even though we are still in the midst of a cold winter season, retailers are trying to get of their winter inventory to make way for the spring arrivals.  For us consumers, we get the best deals when they're clearing out past season's inventory.  Right now, Tommy Hilfiger has a coupon for an extra 50% off sale items.  Expires 1/27/2013.

Deal #2: Who doesn't love getting fashionable clothing for a lot less money?  I believe that is why many of the fashion chains including H&M, Forever 21 and Papaya have been successful.  They offer fashion at a fraction of the cost so it could be affordable by everyone.  With this coupon from Forever 21, you save an extra 50% on sale items.  Expires 1/21/2013.

Deal #3: Babies, babies, babies!  We will be welcoming many cute little babies to our Savings.com family in 2013.  It's never to early to start shopping for these little bundle of joys and you bet we will be taking advantage of the coupons on the site. Whether you need to purchase baby clothing for your child or as a gift, right now there is a buy one, get one 50% off sale at Hanna Andersson.  Expires 3/10/2013.

Deal #4: 
I love all the winter clearance sales that are going on right now.  You have the potential to save a lot more on new items than purchasing used items at yard sales and re-sale stores.  During the Winter Clearance Blowout Sale, you can save up to 80% with this coupon from The Children's Place.  I have been seeing this deal posted on Facebook and all across the blogosphere which confirms how much of a great deal it is!  Expires 1/21/2013.

Deal #5:
  It's a new year and it's time to stock up on some good reads to help you accomplish your health related goals.  With this coupon from Sourcebooks, you can save 50% off on health, diet and wellness books.  Expires 1/31/2013.

Retailers have started putting Valentine's Day items on display and have cleared their shelves for new arrivals.  This is the best time to take advantage of the winter clearance and sale items (you can save up to 90% off retail prices).  Hope you all stay warm and safe.  See you next week when I bring you 5 more incredible deals!

  • No charges will be filed in a police shooting last week. Investigators have found no criminal wrongdoing in the police killing of a mentally ill, knife-wielding black man by officers.   Tulsa police homicide Sgt. Dave Walker tells the Tulsa World about the findings Monday from the internal investigation of the June 9 shooting of Jason Barre. Tulsa County District Attorney's Office will review the findings next and decide if it concurs.   Barre already was known to police as having a mental illness. When he walked down a street wielding two butcher knives on June 9, two sheriff's deputies and a police officer gave him room until he approached a convenience store. After a stun gun failed to stop Barre, the deputies and officer shot him.
  • Two dogs mauled a woman over the weekend.   Gallatin County Sheriff Brian Gootkin said Monday that 65-year-old Melissa Barnes was doing yard work Saturday at a residence west of Bozeman when she was attacked, first by a pit bull, followed by another dog. The breed of the second dog hasn't been confirmed.   Barnes, who is an organ donor, was being kept on life support at a Billings hospital pending rabies tests on the dogs, which belonged to tenants on Barnes' property. The dogs were not current on their vaccinations. Their owners voluntarily euthanized them.   Gootkin says the case is still under investigation, and no charges have yet been filed.
  • Hours after the release of a Congressional Budget Office review of a Republican health care bill in the Senate, GOP leaders on Monday night found themselves on the defensive, as a small group of Senate Republicans indicated they might not even vote this week to start debate on the GOP health bill, let alone support the final product. “CBO says 22 million people lose insurance,” said Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), who made clear the GOP plans to reduce Medicaid spending by $772 billion over ten years was unacceptable in her home state. Collins was joined by several other Republicans in publicly saying that without changes, they are not ready to begin debate this week: I want to work w/ my GOP & Dem colleagues to fix the flaws in ACA. CBO analysis shows Senate bill won't do it. I will vote no on mtp. 1/3 — Sen. Susan Collins (@SenatorCollins) June 26, 2017 Mike Lee's spokesman tells me: 'Lee will not vote to proceed to a bill he can't support.'https://t.co/eGe2fSyA09 — John McCormack (@McCormackJohn) June 26, 2017 Ron Johnson on the motion to proceed to the GOP health care bill: 'I would highly doubt I would support it.' — Frank Thorp V (@frankthorp) June 26, 2017 Also ready to vote against the “motion to proceed” to the health care bill – Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), and Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV). Democrats meanwhile used speeches on the Senate floor – and social media outside on the steps of the Capitol – to make their argument that the GOP bill should be shelved immediately. Ummm…people streaming to the Capitol. Crowd getting bigger and bigger and bigger. #HealthcareBill pic.twitter.com/SKnjQtzrBh — Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) June 27, 2017 The original plan had been for the Senate to vote on Tuesday to begin debate on the GOP health care bill, with a final vote expected on Thursday or Friday – but that timeline seemed to be on hold for the time being. Earlier on Monday, the Congressional Budget Office found that the plan would mean 22 million fewer people would have health insurance by 2026, not much different than the estimates for a similar bill that was approved by the House in early May. The CBO report found that of the 22 million – 15 million would lose insurance coverage from changes to the Medicaid program, while another 7 million people would lose coverage because of changes in the nongroup and individual insurance marketplaces. The CBO review had good news on the money front for the GOP, as the plan would save an estimated $321 billion over ten years on the federal deficit, spending $1.022 trillion less than current law, while reducing federal tax revenues by $701 billion from 2017-2026. The White House derided the CBO report, arguing their estimates have never been close; meanwhile, the President was doing what he could do from the sidelines to try to sway Republicans to his side. “He made several calls to multiple Senators to hear their concerns and get their ideas, and understand where they’re at and what needs to get done,” said White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. But with Republicans only able to lose two votes, GOP leaders were struggling to keep the GOP health bill on track in the Senate.
  • The website Money-Rates.com has figured out the best and worst states to make a living. And sure, money is the big factor, including both salaries and the cost of living, as well as income taxes. But they also factor in unemployment rates and workplace safety. The worst three are California and Hawaii, for high taxes and cost of living that outweigh even their high wages, and Montana for low wages and poor workplace safety. You can see the full list here.
  • People in Arizona are used to triple-digit temperatures in the summer, but an extreme heat wave gripping the Southwest this week had temperatures rising to 120 degrees. At that extreme temperature, strange things begin to happen. >> Read more trending news Arizona residents have been posting photos on social media of objects that they say have melted due to the extreme heat. It's important to note that none of these photos have been independently verified. The melted mailbox photo prompted KSAZ to ask an expert if it was possible for extreme heat to do that kind of damage. The engineering expert said that while it was unlikely that the plastic post completely melted, the heat could have weakened it, causing it to fall over, KSAZ reported. As for the photos of melting street signs, KPNX verified via a transportation official that the damage to the sign was age-related, not specifically heat-related. And the photo of the melted trash bin? That was posted on Reddit in 2016, and many doubted its veracity then. One thing is for certain: The heat in Arizona is no joke. Flights were grounded temporarily this week at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix due to the extreme temperatures. Phoenix emergency rooms have seen an increase in burn cases, most contact burns from bare skin touching pavement or a hot car's interior, azcentral reported. Pet owners are urged to take precautions as an increase in heat-related emergencies has been reported at Arizona animal hospitals.
