It's your last chance to buy online in time for Christmas, unless you want to trade savings for speedy shipping. Check out these deals on cameras, leather jackets, chocolate and more.
We’re getting close to the safe shipping deadline for online Christmas shopping this week, but that doesn’t mean the deals are stopping. This week’s a great time to save on digital cameras, leather, and music.
If shopping and year-end financial planning are giving you a headache, don’t worry. This week’s freebie is a coupon for a free bottle of extra-strength Excedrin. Sign up directly on their site and they’ll mail it to you. It’s only for the first 10,000 people per day, so if it doesn’t work, try again tomorrow: A lot of other people have headaches right now, too.
If you’re craving chocolate — or need a few generic gifts — Amazon.com has you covered. You can get three tote bags of Ghirardelli chocolate squares for $12. The price is just over $13 for about 30 ounces, but use coupon code HLDYCHOC to get an extra 10 percent off.
Shopping digital cameras? Several that fit the bill for everyday use are on sale this week.
Walmart has the Canon PowerShot SD1300 IS on sale for $109. It comes with your choice of a few extras, including a 4GB memory card and a tripod, plus free shipping. This model has a resolution of 12.1 megapixels and 4x optical zoom.
Amazon.com has the same camera for the same price, minus the extras. Just in case you have Amazon credit or don’t like Walmart for some reason.
Unlike Walmart, Amazon.com also has a slightly better model on sale: the Canon PowerShot SD1400 IS is $149. They’ll also throw in a $25 gift card, but don’t forget to add this to your cart – scroll down and look at the promotions section to do that. This model has a higher resolution at 14.1 megapixels, and the same 4x optical zoom.
If neither of those strikes your fancy, Electronics Expo has the Sony Cybershot DSC-H55 for $176. This model has 14.1 megapixel resolution and a much better optical zoom at 10x, which will help you take better pictures at a distance. Use coupon code LSDA1210 to get this price at checkout.
You can pick up a stylish leather jacket for a guy or a girl at Amazon.com this week – many are more than 60 percent off.
Amazon.com also has select musical instruments and accessories up to 70 percent off right now, including a $1,000 saxophone for less than $300, electric guitars, and drum sets.
And while you’re shopping sound, take a look at this Polk Audio 8-inch subwoofer at Electronics Expo. It’s only $170 with coupon code LSDA1210.
One more item in the big-savings-at-Amazon category: You can pick up a fancy, if slightly dated, Garmin GPS for 65 percent off. The Garmin 60Cx is $170 rather than the suggested retail price of close to $500.
Lastly, you can get this $32 tank top for free at Victoria’s Secret right now with any other purchase excluding clearance. Use code TANK4FREE with the tank and another item in your shopping cart to get it for free, and use SHIP50 to get free shipping on orders over $50. Alternatively, you can save 20 percent on clearance items through Dec. 14 with code CLEARVS20.
That’s it for deals this week – share yours in the comments and check back next time for more.
