Monday’s Money Deals: Beach Hotels, Watches, and Free Wipes

April showers bring May flowers – and apparently deals on electronics, sporting goods, and knives. That’s weird.

Today in freebies, you can get a free box of Kleenex moist wipes mailed to you and a friend by answering six easy survey questions.

With Mother’s Day around the corner – this Sunday, May 8 – you may also be hunting last-minute deals for her. If you’re cheap (or want to help the kids), check out our story 10 Mother’s Day Gifts for Less Than $10. But we’ve spotted a few other deals she might like: At Esprit, take 40 percent off clothes and accessories with online coupon code MAYSALE11, which expires today. Combine the code with sale items for the best discounts, but note that the online outlet store is excluded.

If you want to put mom up in an exotic oceanfront hotel, Hotels.com has deals like beach hotels in Cancun from $44 a night, along with other domestic and international locations. You have to book by tomorrow and travel by the end of the month. Airfare’s not included, of course.

Amazon has plush toys 50 percent off, including some Beanie Babies and Pillow Pets. They also have some nice Adee Kaye watches under $100, some as cheap as $70. The women’s selection is slim – probably because of Mother’s Day – but for what’s left they offer free one-day shipping before May 5. Most of these are $120-plus elsewhere.

One more for mom: Amazon has a sterling silver and 14k gold heart pendant at 54 percent off for $115, and plenty of other silver and gold on sale under $100.

Mother’s Day shopping working up your appetite? Stop by Quiznos and get $2 off a regular or large sub with a coupon that expires today.

Also ending today: up to 50 percent off Circuit City electronics, including 3D TVs and laptops.

Meanwhile, Amazon has 70 percent off a wide range of weird sports and outdoors gear and up to 60 percent off Swiss Army knives. See, we didn’t leave the guys out.

As always, share your own finds in the comments. You’ll find more deals here on Wednesday and Friday, or you can check out our Deals page for fresh deals anytime. Have a great week.
