Daily Deals: Makeup, Xbox, Camping Gear, and a Free Women’s Health Calendar

By on

I’ve subscribed to the promotional emails of 500 companies and brands so that you don’t have to. Every week, I sift through 1,000 deal-touting emails. Most are a waste of your time, but a handful offer worthwhile coupons, codes, and sales – those are the ones I collect for you here and display in a reader-friendly format.

Arts, crafts and calendars

  • Hobby Lobby Creative Centers: 40 percent off one full-price item in stores (print first) or online (use code 5892) [8/20].
  • Free 2012 Woman’s Health Calendar: It will even ship for free. The calendar is published by the U.S. Department of Health, and it’s available in English and Spanish. A printable version will be available later, or you can have a pretty copy mailed to you if you call 800-994-9662 or fill out this form. (I don’t normally promote freebies that require you to give up personal info, but the government already has your contact info.)

Shoes and accessories

  • Chinese Laundry (women’s shoes): Take an additional 25 percent off all shoes in the “Sale” category online (use code SALE25MORE at checkout) [8/23]. The category has dozens of shoes: open-toed, pumps, boots, flats, etc.

Comments & discussion

We welcome your opinions, but let’s keep it civil. Like many businesses, we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. In our case, that means those who communicate by name-calling, racism, using words designed to hurt others or generally acting like an uninformed bully. Also, comments that include links to email addresses or commercial websites typically aren't posted. This isn't a place to advertise your business.
