WOW!

Amazon has got this KitchenAid 2-speed hand blender in "Flamingo" for $20.71 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping, the lowest recorded Amazon price on this immersion blender.  It got 4.6 out of 5 stars over 36 customer reviews and normally costs $39.99 (I've never seen it priced below $30 before.)  The quantity limit on this is 3 per account, so make sure you pick up a spare for Pesach now.

PRICE DROP: Extra-long basic white tablecloth for $11.99 on Amazon (limit 2 per account). Buy NOW for Succos!



Amazon has got this 90" x 156" white tablecloth for only $11.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  Because of the low price, there is a limit of 2 per Amazon account.

I own a number of these tablecloths in a variety of lengths and widths; on a holiday like Succot, replete with giant outdoor meals and laundering restrictions, these tablecloths are a dream come true.

They are 100% polyester, so don't expect them to be of your finest or softest material, but they are stain and wrinkle resistant, and so much nicer than eating on plastic!  They come out of the hot-water wash clean and in great shape and don't need ironing.  Grab two of these now for Sukkot before the price zooms back up.

If you need more than two and are okay with paying a little bit more, you can buy them here for $12.55 but with no quantity limits.

(P.S. they are also awesome for Pesach, but we'll talk more about that in March!)

  • Easy laundering in your home washing machine. Serged edge for an elegant look.
  • Measures 90 in. wide x 156 in. long.
  • Tablecloths made from stain and wrinkle resistant 100% polyester material .
  • Rounded corners for sleek drop.
  • Floor-length drop on standard 8 ft. table.

Oxi-Clean 7.22 lb. box for $9.99 on Amazon



I "converted" to Oxi-Clean stain remover two years ago; it totally saved and cleaned a badly stained and much-loved tablecloth that I was about to throw away, and once I saw that, I became a true believer.  This stuff works.

Amazon recently dropped the price from $15.99 to $11.99 on this box of Oxi-Clean and then on top of that, they released a $2.00 online coupon, dropping this to $9.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  In the past, when Amazon had price drops on Oxi-Clean, there were usually quantity limits, but not now (but keep in mind that you can use the $2.00 coupon only once).

Oxi-Clean got 4.7 out of 5 stars over 968 customer reviews and is an Amazon #1 Best Seller.

60% off clearance at Wildkin: kids' backpacks, furniture, diaper bags, sleeping bags and much more!



Got kids?  Love high-end kid gear but hate high-end prices?

Wildkin is running an amazing Back to School promotion on their sale itemseverything in the Sale Section at Wildkin.com is 50% off when you enter promo code ALLCLEAR at checkout.  But now, stack on second promo code SAS_LUCKY22, and you'll get an ADDITIONAL 22% off.  Your discounts stack up and end up being the equivalent of around 60% off the original price!  I got a bunch of different totes, mini duffel and messenger bags all for around $12.00 each.

If you end up spending over $100, use promo code SAS_30100 instead of SAS_LUCKY22; that will take $30.00 off your $100 purchase. (You cannot stack all three coupons)

Wildkin does charge for UPS Ground shipping, but if you buy two or three items, the discounts far exceed the shipping charges.

At about 60% off, their gorgeous kid's gear and furniture are selling out fast (I had something sell out in my shopping cart!) so quantities are very limited and not guaranteed; you've got to get moving on this one.



BACK AGAIN! The ZUS Smart Car Charger: never lose your car again and charge any USB device lightning-fast. Now, 10% off with free shipping.


DISCLOSURE:  Nonda provided me with a free ZUS car charger (value $30) for review, with no stipulations, meaning that if I didn't like the ZUS, I was free to do a negative review.  All of the opinions expressed in this review are my own and are not influenced in any way by the gift of the ZUS.

I posted this back in June as a Father's Day promotion, and now this terrific deal is back again!  I still love my ZUS so much, when I accidentally left it in a rental car in New Jersey, I actually paid for Hertz to FedEx it back to me!
----------------------------------------------------------------

If I had a dollar for every time I lost my car in a store parking lot, I'd be a very wealthy girl.

When I go shopping, I like to get all my errands out of the way at once, and that means sometimes going to multiple stores in one day.  That also means parking in multiple lots and frankly, I do have senior moments and forget where I leave the car sometimes. Okay, often. Let's just say, I know the topography of our SuperTarget parking lot very well.

A company called Nonda asked me if I would review their ZUS smart car charger.  I had originally heard about ZUS from a great techie article I read about "must-have" innovative new car gadgets for this year and my curiosity was piqued.

Now if you've been reading Daily Cheapskate for a while, you know that I do virtually no product reviews. It's just not my focus; I'd much rather spend my time finding great deals. But when I heard what the ZUS actually did, I said to myself "I have GOT to try this thing."

I'm also not the kind of person who spends $30 on a phone charger for the car when there are lots of less expensive models out there that will do the job. So I was really curious as to what made ZUS worth the extra money.



So, I received my new ZUS smart charger, and downloaded the free ZUS smartphone app.  Then I plugged the charger into my car and synced it via Bluetooth with my phone (it took about 8 seconds to set up).  I was all ready to go.

Then my husband and I drove my car to the SuperTarget near our house (their lot is probably the size of several football fields), and he parked while I was inside shopping, so I didn't see where he parked.  When I came out of the SuperTarget, I activated the ZUS app on my smartphone and just followed the little ZUS arrow.

Voila, there's my car.  Hello car. All I could think was, this is awesome.  It was incredibly simple to set up and to use, and it worked very effectively, exactly as the testimonials about it promised it would.

I have used other parking trackers before, but the downside is that you have to remember to activate them right after you park.  ZUS automatically senses when you park and it activates itself. This is a GREAT feature; if you are the kind of person who forgets where you park, you are likely also the kind of person who will forget to activate your app when you park!  If you forget where you parked, the smart app locates your car and then guides you to it via directional GPS (or you can just follow a map, your choice). It could not be simpler and works like a charm.

When you do park, ZUS will ask you if you'd like to set a parking reminder, something which proved invaluable when I took ZUS with me to Brooklyn and used it with my rental car. When I go to NY for a family visit, I can usually count on at least one parking ticket; with ZUS, you set the parking timer on your app, and it goes off in advance of your meter running out, which is a wonderful life hack for New Yorkers (or anyone else who lives in a city with lots of metered parking).

But smart parking is really the secondary function of the ZUS (I just like it the best because I constantly forget where I parked).

As a charger, it is unbelievably fast.  It has two USB ports, so I can charge two devices at once.  A smart chip within the unit is capable of identifying most devices and providing the maximum rate of charge the device is capable of accepting, so it will charge your device lightning-fast.

And it does exactly that.  I have never seen my iPhone or my husband's Android charge as quickly as when it's hooked up to a ZUS.  The other thing that I noticed about the ZUS is that when my phone is completely dead, it only takes about a minute or two for ZUS to get it charged up enough so that it will at least turn on, even if it's only slightly charged. I never have to worry about needing to wait to use my phone's GPS and mapping functions if I forget to charge it.

ZUS is currently priced at $29.99 but when Daily Cheapskate readers click through this link and enter the promo code F17OE4AQ0667 at checkout, that price will drop to $27.00 with free shipping.

Is ZUS worth the extra money over cheaper car chargers?  I'm going to have to give that an incontrovertible yes.

  • Utilizes low-energy Bluetooth 
  • Navigates you right to your car with the easy-to-use app interface 
  • Continues to work when it’s plugged into the socket, with or without the ignition on
