Today’s Deals: Summer Gear, MP3s, and Free Food

By on

I subscribe to the promotional emails of hundreds of companies so you don’t have to. I sift through 1,000 deal-touting emails every week. Most are worthless. But some offer valuable coupons, promo codes, sales, and freebies – which I collect and organize here and on our deals page.

Note: Expiration dates are in brackets.

Music

  • Albums: More than 500 downloadable MP3 albums are $3 each at Amazon.com [expiration unknown].

Home goods

  • Beach towels (for kids and adults): Additional 20 percent off at Kohl’s online (use code SUMMER20) [5/24]. They’re already up to 66 percent off, so you could save up to 86 percent. There are about two dozen adult styles to pick from – including 6-foot-long oversized ones – and some really adorable kids styles.

Health and beauty

  • Sunscreen: $2 off all Aveeno and Neutrogena products at Walgreens online [expiration unknown]. Shipping is free if you spend $25-plus. For these big brand names, this is a great discount – just be sure to read 10 Tips – and New FDA Rules – to Save Your Skin before buying any sunscreen.

Clothing, shoes, and accessories

  • Free Hello Kitty tote bag: With a $75-plus purchase at Sanrio.com (use code FREEPINKTOTE) [expiration unknown – but these freebies always go quickly].

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.
