If you've been reading Daily Cheapskate for a while, you know how often I post great sales and deals from Nordstrom.  While Nordstrom is considered a more expensive store, their sales are fantastic, and Nordstrom a great source for higher-end designer stuff at very reasonable prices.  They also have year-round, sitewide free shipping and free returns, which makes online shopping a breeze.  I bought my Nordstrom gift card without any hesitation that I'd be able to use it.

Amazon's Gold Box Bonus Deal of the Day: 60% off Sony headphones, priced from $7.99 to $16.99

Amazon's Gold Box Bonus Deal of the Day is 60% off  Sony headphones, priced from $7.99 to $16.99 (regular prices from $19.99 to $29.99).

Since I'm always leaving my headphones on planes (seriously, I've done this like four times), I picked up two at the $7.99 price and one of the extra bass ones (for watching movies on my iPad)  at the $16.99.  They're Sony, so you know they're going to be decent quality headphones, even at these rock bottom Gold Box prices.

Amazon Gold Box Deal of the Day: 70% off Samsonite Spinner Sets (FANTASTIC PRICES!)

UPDATE:  One set is completely sold out!  Don't wait on this one!


Today's Amazon Gold Box Deal of the Day is 70% off Samsonite Spinner Luggage Sets.  The three sets they are showing are awesome, but I wanted to figure out if it was really a great deal or not, so I went to the Samsonite site to check out the comparative prices and I found that all of their indivdual spinner pieces alone were going for upwards of $90, so these Amazon Gold Box prices are truly incredible.

With our extended family on the East Coast, we have been in dire need of a good luggage set for a while; I think I'm going to bite the bullet here and snag one (or even possibly two) of these sets.

While Gold Box deals are usually good for the day only, I am convinced that this one will sell out well before the day is up because of the incredible pricing.


The Samsonite Lightweight Two-Piece Softside Spinner Set (including a 21" and a 25" spinner) is priced at $124.99 with free shipping and free returns.  It received 4.1 out of 5 stars over 7 customer reviews.  My Amazon price tracker tells me that yesterday's price was $429.99 (!!!!), that the average price for this set is around $295 and that this $124.99 is the lowest recorded Amazon price posted on this item.  This is the set that we are going to buy.

Highly-rated Cuisinart baby food maker and bottle warmer for $100 on Amazon



Amazon has the Cuisinart baby food maker and bottle warmer for $100.00 with free shipping. (This price is just $2.74 away from its lowest Amazon published price of $97.26.)  It received 4.5 out of 5 stars over 179 customer reviews.  And while I've just skimmed the reviews, most of them are stellar.
The machine is still performing superbly. I've now made an assortment of veggies, fruits, and meat purees and have yet to find a complaint about the consistency or function of the appliance. It's so easy to throw the bowl, blade, lid (and occasionally, measuring cup) in the top rack of the dishwasher.

  • Steam, chop/pureĆ© and bottle warmer functions; 4-cup work bowl.
  • Patent-pending Blade lock System holds the blade in place while pouring.
  • Steam blade creates even steam distribution for quicker, more efficient results.
  • Bowl seal to prevent spitting and improve steaming; Powerful motor for quick steaming and precise chopping.
  • Recipe booklet, spatula, bottle adapter ring and integrated measuring cup included; 18-month warranty.
