When you’re shopping in a real-life store, fill up a cart, and then abandon it, that makes you kind of a terrible person. Store employees will secretly hate you. More importantly, no one will chase after you and hand over a coupon in order to encourage you to come back and finish your transaction. That’s where online shopping is very different. [More]
Retailers don’t need much of a pretext to send out online coupons: current events, real or made-up holidays, the weather: it’s all a good enough reason to send out an e-mail and then sit back and wait for the sales to roll in. That’s the apparent logic behind a Kohl’s sale dedicated to the newest, tiniest heir to the throne of the United Kingdom. [More]
We told you last week about savvy online shoppers who realized that a JCPenney coupon code for $10 off purchases of $10 or more could be used to snap up a washcloth/towel combination that cost exactly $10. It also looked like the code could be used repeatedly, so some folks just kept ordering these items until JCP ran out of every possible color. But now the retailer is saying “not so fast” to customers who placed multiple orders. [More]
It’s hard not to take it just a little bit personally when a store doesn’t want to sell you something. That’s what happened to Hel when she got a great coupon code from Lane Bryant that gave her 50% off a large purchase. She tells Consumerist that she assembled a $1,400 order ($700 with the coupon) — an entire wardrobe for the next few years, really.
A FatWallet member spotted a great deal on some La Fee Verte panties where you can combine a 50% off sale with a coupon code and get free shipping if you get 3 or more.
After Alexandra and her boyfriend both (but separately) ordered the same game from Best Buy, the retailer canceled thousands of orders due to a pricing error. It happens. However, she reports that while her boyfriend received a coupon code along with his cancellation notice, she received nothing. She thinks that Big Blue and Yellow profiled her. Best Buy? Profiling their customers? No way!
Amazon has released a fresh steaming batch of grocery coupon codes for August. Some of the bigger discounts include:
J.Crew online is giving 20% off anything from its sale section.

Amazon.com has uncaged their new July coupon codes. Here’s some of the deeper discounts:
The deal aficionados on the FatWallet message boards have various discussion threads devoted to providing the most current coupons for a slew of stores. Rather then dig for them, here’s a master list of their official store coupons and clearance threads. Members routinely get rid of dead coupons and post new ones, so this is definitely one to bookmark:
Spirit Airline flights, grounded since the beginning of a 5-day pilot strike,
could will resume Friday, after the pilots union and the airline reached a tentative agreement following 26 straight hours of negotiation. In its typically tongue-in-cheek fashion, coinciding with the announcement was a “Strikingly Low Fares” promotion offering everyone $50 off new tickets plus 5,000 bonus miles.
ProBargainHunter has got the entire list of Amazon’s official coupon codes for May. Here’s some of the deepest discounts:
BJ received the coupon at left, offering $9.99 off at Heartland America on September 9 (9/9/09, get it?) Which would be great if they had mailed it to him before 10 AM on September 10th. “Looks like if I want to use the coupon I will need to build a time machine,” he wrote.
