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 #2: With all the parties you'll be hosting at your home and maybe even having out of state guests staying with you, you'll be doing a lot more cleaning than any other time of year, besides Spring.  Right now, Hoover.com has a coupon for 30% off sitewide, plus free shipping.  Take advantage of this offer to get a head start on your holiday cleaning.  Expires 11/19/2012.

Deal #3: 
Are you traveling during Thanksgiving, Christmas or even early next year?  If you don't have a place to stay or you need to get away and enjoy a vacation, you can save up to 50% on hotels at Orbitz.  This is a pretty sweet deal since the cost of a hotel stay can add up very quickly.  Too bad I'm not going anywhere for the holidays because this would have come handy!  Expires 11/30/2012.

Deal #4: 
Do you have beauty items on your gift list for the special folks in your life?  It's probably the easiest item to give since we all need to wash, moisturize and even make ourselves up.  Beauty.com has a coupon for 20% off during the Friends & Family event.  They only offer this deal once in awhile, so take full advantage of it while it lasts.  Expires 11/09/2012.

Deal #5: Popcorn anyone?  Whenever I'm at the mall, my children get super excited when they see the stand with all the popcorn.  I am not sure how many flavors they have, but looking from the long lines, a lot people enjoy them.  For this holiday, why not buy your loved ones some delicious popcorn.  Popcorn Factory has a coupon for 20% off your entire purchase.  Now that's a sweet deal!  Expires 11/09/2012.

Get your holiday shopping done as soon as you can. I'm not trying to stress you out, only trying to keep you stress-free during the most stressful time of the year.  Plan now and save more.  Also, if you're a veteran,don't miss out on the incredible freebies including free meals at CPK, Olive Garden, Applebee's, Chili's, McCormick & Schmick's, Famous Dave's and more.  Here's to another round of "This week in deals."  See you next week!

  • O.J. Simpson plans to return to Florida when he’s released from prison in Nevada, but where are the rest of the players from the Trial of the Century? The Washington Post says the cast of characters includes prosecutor Marcia Clark, who now writes murder mysteries. Judge Lance Ito is now retired. Simpson’s lead defense attorney Johnnie Cochran died in 2005. Prosecutor Christopher Darden now has his own law firm as a defense and civil litigation attorney. But the paper says famed defense lawyer F. Lee Bailey has probably fared the worst. The now 83-year-old was disbarred and filed for bankruptcy after a string of scandals and runs a small consulting business above a hair salon in Maine. You can read more about the story here.
  • An Excessive Heat Warning means we’re experiencing a prolonged period of dangerously hot temperatures. The National Weather Service office in Tulsa issued the warning for Tulsa and surrounding counties until 8pm Saturday.  High temperatures ranging in the mid-90s to around 103 degrees be back tomorrow afternoon. Forecasters say the combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a dangerous situation where heat illnesses are likely.  Drink plenty of fluids and stay in an air conditioned room.  Stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors.  When in the car, don’t forget to check the back seat for pets and children before you leave. Temperatures inside a car can become lethal in just a few minutes.  FOX23 Chief Meteorologist James Aydelott says we’ll get some relief with a chance for showers and storms Sunday evening.
  • The White House communications team underwent a major change on Friday, as Press Secretary Sean Spicer turned in his resignation, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was elevated to Spicer’s job, and Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci was brought in by President Donald Trump to be the new Communications Director, delivering a new tone in dealing with the press. “The President is phenomenal with press,” said Scaramucci. “I love the President. The President is a very, very effective communicator.” While Scaramucci – known by many insiders as “Mooch” – made clear that he thinks the news media does not treat the President fairly, Mr. Trump’s new Communications Director laid out that message in a totally different way in his first few minutes in the White House Briefing Room. What is clear from Mooch's first fifteen minutes – he understands Trump in a way Spicer never was able to, from years-old relationship — Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) July 21, 2017 New White House Communications Dir. Scaramucci: 'The president is phenomenal with the press, and he's a great communicator.' pic.twitter.com/Mthqjsy31S — ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) July 21, 2017 As for Spicer, he will be replaced at the podium by Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who will move from Deputy to White House Press Secretary. Spicer, who battle relentlessly with the press, and never seemed to have the full confidence of the President, will officially leave the White House in August. “It’s been an honor and a privilege to serve President Donald Trump and this amazing country,” Spicer wrote on Twitter. “I will continue my service through August.” While there had been questions that Spicer wanted no part of working with Scaramucci, the next White House Communications Director went out of his way to praise Spicer. Scaramucci on Spicer: 'I would love to have Sean here. Sean decided he thought it would be better to go.' https://t.co/qxhTiObu1w pic.twitter.com/HgWl5765DB — CBS News (@CBSNews) July 21, 2017

Oak Brook, Illinois-based McDonald's describes the McDelivery Collection as 'a selection of fun, fashion forward items you can wear or use whenever and wherever you order.' It also includes french fry-themed sweatsuits and sandals, hamburger pillowcases and a picnic blanket dotted with McDonald's items.

McDonald's joins KFC, which recently released its own fast-food apparel. KFC's chicken-themed line consists of socks, shirts and accessories, including a 'finger-lickin' good' necklace.
  • White House press secretary Sean Spicer is resigning his position, according to two people with knowledge of the decision. One of those people said Spicer is quitting because of objections over the appointment of a new White House communications director, New York financier Anthony Scaramucci.
