This week in deals: 50% off at PS from Aeropostale and more

The countdown to the holidays have begun!  What does this mean to you?  If you haven't gotten a chance to start planning and shopping for loved ones for this holiday season, now is the time to start getting your game plan together before you start feeling overwhelmed and stressed.

Once Black Friday rolls on by and people start to fight for limited deals, that's when the urgency for buying gifts gets stronger.  Avoid that feeling of desperation by starting now.  

Write a list of all the people you're going buy gifts for and what they like.  With that list, if a great deal comes on by, you'll be able to get it and save.  The biggest reason for people not being able to save in the midst of incredible holiday deals is because they wait until the last minute.  Remember, Target is price matching, so there's no excuse not to start early!

Here are this week's top 5 deals:

Deal #1: If you're getting ready for Black Friday with the ads being leaked right now, then I've got a great deal that you won't have to wait for.  In anticipation of the Black Friday craziness and to beat their competitors to the punch, PS from Aeropostale is offering 50% off your entire purchase (excluding clearance, fragrances and licensed products).  You can get some great gifts for your children, nieces, nephews and any child in your life.  Limited time offer.

Deal #4:

  • More details are released in a recent airline incident. The Chicago aviation police officer who pulled a man off a United Airlines flight describes the man as physically and verbally combative during the incident. In response to a Freedom of Information Act request by The Associated Press, the aviation department released the officer's version of the April 9 incident for the first time and named the officer for the first time. Earlier this month, Dr. David Dao's lawyer said the 69-year-old Kentucky physician suffered a broken nose and broken teeth. In his report, officer James Long said that Dao was flailing his arms. Long says when he pulled Dao from his seat, Dao knocked his arms away, fell and struck his mouth on an armrest. The report doesn't detail Dao's injuries. Dao's lawyer says he will file a lawsuit.
  • Arkansas carries out an execution that takes 17 minutes to complete. The second inmate put to death by Arkansas on Monday night had labored breathing, then grimaced slightly before losing consciousness. We’re told an Associated Press reporter witnessed Marcel Williams' execution. Williams' execution began at 10:16 p.m., about two hours later than planned after a judge issued, then lifted, a temporary stay. He took several deep breaths shortly after the lethal injection began, and his breathing appeared to stop about 8 minutes after the start. Williams was pronounced dead at 10:33 p.m. Williams weighed 400 pounds, and his attorneys had argued that his lethal injection could cause excessive pain because of his health. A federal judge has lifted her court order that temporarily blocked Arkansas from executing two inmates in one night. Attorneys for Marcel Williams had questioned whether the night's first execution of Jack Jones went properly.
  • Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Mohamed Sanu was on a flight to New Jersey recently, and nothing bad happened! In fact, it was really good! That's news in itself nowadays. Yahoo Sports says he got a handwritten note from a couple who was sitting behind him with their 10-year-old son. It said the boy was watching how polite Sanu was to everyone and even noting Sanu's healthy snack choices. They say he made a very positive impression on their son and that he should be proud. Sanu tweeted a picture of the note and said it definitely made him smile. You can read more about the story here.
  • A 12-year-old boy who was trying to drive across Australia was stopped by police 800 miles into his journey, the BBC reported. >> Read more trending news The boy was pulled over near the mining town of Broken Hill in the New South Wales outback on Saturday after a patrol noticed the car's bumper dragging on the ground. Police said the boy had been trying to drive from Kendall in New South Wales to Perth in Western Australia. He was arrested and taken to the Broken Hill police station, the BBC reported.

  • Investigators don’t know exactly how many rape kits haven’t been processed because there isn’t a system in place to track them.
