Hot Topic cuts up to 75% off a selection of Halloween costumes and accessories. (Click the "up to 75% off" banner to see these deals; prices are as marked.) That yields huge savings on a variety of offbeat costumes that are not easily found at most retail stores. Choose in-store pickup for orders over $10 to avoid the $4.99 shipping fee. (Pickup for items under $10 costs $2.)
Dollar stores lure us in with their rock-bottom prices, but not everything is a bargain. We suggest you steer clear of these items.
