Bobeau fleece cardigan from Nordstrom, $39.90 with free shipping


I absolutely LOVE the elegant, stylish, asymmetrical cut of this Bobeau fleece cardigan from Nordstrom, reduced from $58.00 to $39.90 with free shipping and returns.  I'm getting either the Currant or the Bali Turquoise to wear in shul this year (I'm always freezing on RH/YK).


It's available in sizes XS-XL and in a whopping 26 colors, but I see a lot of color/size combos have already sold out, so don't wait on this one.  It's available in regular and petite sizes.  Keep in mind that it's fitted through the arms, so order close to size.

Adolfo solid men's dress shirt/tie combos for $11.99 with free shipping



Rakuten (formerly Buy.com) has got these Adolfo solid-colored dress shirt and tie combos for just $11.99 with free shipping.  These shirt/tie combos are priced at $14.99 but will automatically drop to $11.99 in your shopping cart. Lots of sizes still available, but some of the better colors have sold out, so don't wait.

Not sure what quality the tie is (I don't think it's silk) but frankly, the Adolfo shirt alone is well-worth the price!  Most of the shirts are 55%/45% cotton/poly blend.  Also note that the tie pictured is not necessarily the tie that will arrive with the shirt.

Consumer Reports for $19.99 per year (includes print AND digital version), today, 8/20/14 only


Subscribe to Consumer Reports for just $19.99 per year, when you enter promo code DAILYCHEAPSKATE at checkout. You can lock in this price for up to two years only.  The $19.99 per year covers 13 issues ($1.54 per issue) and is good on new subscriptions, gifts and renewals, with no auto-renewal.  The digital version of Consumer Reports is also included with your print subscription, which I love, because it's easier to digitally search on brands, etc..

Though I've said this many times on Daily Cheapskate, I think it's worth saying again. On  a personal note,  I consider my subscription to Consumer Reports as a smart investment in making good choices.  The $20 a year that I spend on the subscription has probably saved me hundreds (thousands?) in NOT buying poor quality items that have large marketing budgets. We used Consumer Reports to research our kitchen appliances, our back yard equipment, our computer peripherals, our iPads, our phones;  it even helped us decide what brand of paint to use when we repainted.  We've used Consumer Reports for pretty much every important purchase we've made in recent years.  I'm going to need a new (used) car this year, and you better believe I'll be scouring CR to see which models/years to avoid.

AND, while it's not mentioned on DiscountMags as part of the deal, each year that we've subscribed to Consumer Reports through DiscountMags, we've received the Consumer Reports Buying Guide for FREE, which is an incredible tool for avoiding lemon purchases.


Just parenthetically, the very first time we received Consumer Reports was when we moved into our first (and current) house, and a dear friend bought it for us as a housewarming gift.  It was, hands down, the best and most practical housewarming gift we've ever gotten, and we've been subscribers ever since.

Amazon Gold Box Deal of the Day: Scotch Thermal Laminator for $18




Amazon has got a fantastic Gold Box Deal of the Day today, 8/19/14:  this Scotch thermal laminator is just $17.99 with free Amazon Prime/Super Saver shipping. It will laminate items up to 9 inches wide and got a super 4.6 out of 5 star rating over 1,510 customer reviews.

Amazon ran this deal in 2011 and I bought two of them, one for us and one as a gift.  I wasn't sure how much we'd use it, but I was pleasantly surprised, as it turned out to be a very smart, frugal purchase; it's great for laminating Sukkot decorations, presentation tools, flash cards, car registration, luggage tags, bookmarks, recipes, photos, all those often-used things hanging on the fridge, greeting cards, documents, crafts, and all kinds of stuff.  A friend of mine uses it to make placemats out of her kid's school artwork.

It comes with two 11" x 9.4" double-sided lamination pouches to get you started, but you can pick up some more here for $11.60, (normally $18.22, also on special Gold Box pricing today) and some smaller ones here for $3.09.

Hurry and pick this up asap, because after today, the price goes back up to $42.00.

$3.00 flat rate shipping on Lenox.com continues today!

 

Lenox.com is continuing to run their special shipping promotion today, 8/19/14:  $3.00 flat rate shipping on any order (no minimum, no maximum).

They are now completely sold out on the Lenox L'Chaim Mezuzah case and Lenox L'Chaim Shabbat platter.  However, there are still a ton of great deals, Judaica and otherwise, that can be found throughout the site.

For whatever reason, I always have issues doing direct links on the Lenox website, so I'll give you my general link and then tell you which keywords to use to search.  The search function on the Lenox site works really well and is specific.  Just type the keywords in the little box in the upper right hand corner.

Now, I know it's August and you're not thinking about Pesach, but this is an instance where off-season shopping will save you a ton.  The Lenox fine china L'Chaim seder plate (pictured above, originally $140.00) is on sale for $39.95.  We bought this for our seder last year, and it's absolutely beautiful, even nicer, I think, than the traditional Lenox Seder Plate.  It's crafted of Lenox ivory fine china, decorated by hand, and accented with gold.  The diameter on this plate is 14 3/4".  If you're a guest at someone's seder next year, this will make for a much more special gift than a few bottles of wine (and probably cost less).   Also makes a great engagement gift.   (FYI,  Amazon has this exact same Seder Plate for $176.00).  Click here and type in the words "L'Chaim seder" in the search box in the upper right-hand corner.



These Lenox L'Chaim candlesticks were originally $140.00 and are now on sale for $27.95.  These 8" Lenox ivory fine china candlesticks are  inscribed with the word "Ohr" ("light" in Hebrew),  adorned with a delicate design of flowers and vines, and accented with gold.   Click here and type in the words "L'Chaim candle" in the search box in the upper right-hand corner.


For a more traditional set of Lenox candlesticks, these Judaic Collection candlesticks are priced at $47.95.  They are 7.5" high and are crafted of Lenox fine china and edged with gold.   Click here and type in the words "Judaic Collection candle" in the search box in the upper right-hand corner.


The Lenox "Judaic Blessings"  porcelain mezuzah cover pictured above is $19.95.  This mezuzah case is crafted of Lenox ivory porcelain with gold accents and is 5 1/2"  long.  Click here and type in the words "Judaic Blessings" in the search box in the upper right-hand corner.



The Lenox "Judaic Collection" challah knife pictured above is on sale for $29.95.  It's made of ivory china and stainless steel and is dishwasher safe.  Click here and type in the words "Judaic Collection" in the search box in the upper right-hand corner.

There are other great Lenox Judaica deals as well. Click here and type in the word "Judaica" or "Jewish" in the search box in the upper right-hand corner to see all of the Lenox fine Judaica items.




This set of four china Lenox napkin rings with a platinum band is $17.95.  That's a really good price for napkin rings that aren't Lenox.  You can get a set of 12 for only $53.85,  or $4.49 per Lenox napkin ring.   Click here and type in the words "napkin rings" in the search box in the upper right-hand corner.


This French Perle white napkin holder is priced at $24.95.  Click here and type in the words "Perle napkin" in the search box in the upper right-hand corner.


This Floral Melody 3-piece Posy Vase set is $17.95.  These 4" vases are crafted of Lenox fine porcelain and rimmed in gold. I have three sets of these and I use them at very large meals, like Sheva Brachot, and space them out all over the table and fill them with mini-buds, for a lovely effect.



Don't forget that Dansk is now owned by Lenox and you can snag some great Dansk deals. This Dansk Vivianna cheese board and knife set is $39.95.  Click here and type in the word "Vivianna" in the search box in the upper right-hand corner.

Save 20% off plums through Saving Star



SavingStar released a brand new produce coupon today: Save 20% on any single purchase of loose plums participating retailers. One time use only.  Expires 8/25/14.

New to Saving Star? It's super-easy to use. Join here and check to see which of your local stores qualifies as a SavingStar vendor.  Almost any store with a loyalty or membership card (like any Kroger affiliates, Albertson's, Pathmark, Rite Aid, Waldbaum, Stop 'N Shop, ShopRite, CVS, etc.) qualifies.  Here in Denver, I use King Soopers as my primary SavingStar store.  When I'm in New York, it's Shop Rite.

And now, you' can redeem SavingStar coupons in new major store chains:  Walmart, Target, Kmart, Meijer, Walgreens Dollar General, Family Dollar and WinCo.  With these new stores, you'll have to scan your receipt with a special mobile app that you can download on your iPhoneor your Android phone.  (I'm not big on scanning receipts, so I'm going to stick to my usual stores for using SavingStar.)

Each Tuesday, SavingStar features an ecoupon on a produce item and each Friday, SavingStar features an ecoupon for a free item (many of which are kosher), meaning that when you activate the coupon and purchase the item at one of their vendors and swipe your loyalty card at purchase, they will give you back 100% of the value of the item. And especially now, when they are planning on including SO many new stores as SavingStar eligible, it really pays to join SavingStar!

Here's how to cash in on SavingStar ecoupons.  Register your shopper's loyalty card in your Saving Star account and activate any of the ecoupons you want.  Then shop for the items listed on the ecoupons and make sure you swipe your shoppers loyalty card at checkout.  (And yes, you can use regular paper coupons on top of SavingStar ecoupons.) Once you've purchased an item, the amount of the coupon will be deposited in your SavingStar account and you can withdraw it (once it reaches $5) as cash or a gift card.
