Need winter tights? Get Hanes tights from $4.00-$6.00 per pair plus a free 6-pack of socks plus free shipping at Hanes. Prices drop if you buy in quantity. Includes Plus-Sizes!

This comes along the heels of the previous post (pun intended).  Hanes and Just My Size are running amazing Early Black Friday promotions today, so I figured, why not get myself a few pairs of much needed black tights for winter? When I saw the prices on the tights, I figured that this deserved its own post! I usually don't pay this little for off-brand tights, let alone Hanes!

You can get free shipping with no minimum AND you get a FREE 6-pack of socks with any purchase (just add the socks to your cart; no promo code necessary).  And if you decide to buy a few pairs, there are also discount promo codes for minimum purchases.

I ended up with 13 pairs of tights and the 6 pairs of socks for a grand total of $50.00 shipped!

Lord & Taylor Jewelry and Accessory finds

Lord & Taylor is running an awesome Pre-Black Friday promotion.  Here are a few of my favorite picks in their jewelry and accessory sales.

LOWEST PRICE EVER and now going on through 11/19/18: Consumer Reports for one year, $16.99. No auto-renewal

UPDATE:  This deal will be good through 11/19/18!

For the next six hours only, you can subscribe to Consumer Reports for one year for $16.99, at DiscountMags.  This is the lowest price I have ever seen on a Consumer Reports subscription (previous lowest price was $18.99).  The $16.99 per year covers 13 issues ($1.31 per issue) and is good on new subscriptions, gifts and renewals, with no auto-renewal, so what you buy is what you buy. (They might give you an opportunity to lock in the price at renewal when you subscribe, but that is totally optional.)

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 money 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 furnishings, 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.

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 current house, and a smart friend bought it for us as a housewarming gift; we've been subscribers ever since.

$5.00 magazine deals on Amazon: Reader's Digest, Rachael Ray, and Martha Stewart Living

Reader's Digest, 1 year, 10 issues, $5.00 (50 cents per issue).  (Also available on Discount(Mags for $4.89 with promo code DAILYCHEAPSKATE).

Rachael Ray Every Day, 1 year, 10 issues, $5.00 (50 cents per issue)

Martha Stewart Living, 1 year, 10 issues, $5.00 (50 cents per issue)

All of these Amazon prescriptions do auto-renew, but no worries, here's what you do to fix that: right after you subscribe, under your Amazon account, click on the Manage Magazine Subscriptions link, find the magazine that your subscribed to, and deselect the auto-renewal option.  Voila, no more auto-renewal!

What are flash drives good for?  Gosh, I'm so glad you asked!  Because flash drives are so physically small and portable but at the same time can hold so much information, they are ideal for data storage.
  • Travel:  this is my main use for portable drives. if I want to take my laptop with me on a plane, but also need a ton of files from my main computer, it takes me about 5 minutes to copy them on to a flash drive and put the drive in my purse.  I can work with the files by just plugging them into my computer and then bring home the updated versions the same way.  Flash drives were made for travel.
  • Backup:  I have a regular backup drive, but there are certain files (documents, pictures) I'd like to keep multiple safe copies of in different physical locations.  You never know when a disaster like Sandy or a fire or a burglary (all God forbid) may hit you.  We actually have some flash drives tucked away in our safe deposit vault.
  • Music storage:  music files like mp3s are huge and tend to eat up my computer, laptop, iPad and phone storage very quickly.  While I keep the majority in cloud storage, there are a few I like to keep offline, and those are on flash drives.
  • Photos:  ever empty an entire summer's worth of pictures from your iPhone to your PC?  There are a few you'll want to keep on there, but the rest should go into storage.  Also remember that those wedding pictures of your grandparents from the 1940s just aren't going to last forever; scan them into digital form and back them up them on a flash drive.  
  • Documents:  birth certificates, passports, marriage licenses, divorce papers, ketubahs, gets, citizenship papers, court records, even tax returns and receipts, financial records, etc. all should be backed up tucked away on a flash drive.  These are all things that are not easily replaceable.

3D Magna Tiles! Get an 87-piece Magna Qubix set (+ another toy) for $80 on Amazon! Here's how.

Over the last few years, Magna-Tiles magnetic building tiles have become one of THE most popular STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) toy gifts to give over the holiday period. 

The Magna-Tiles brand was considered the "premier" set, but it was a pricey one, and the demand for less expensive magnetic tile sets spawned dozens of popular copycat brands that sold like crazy over the holiday season.  So now that pretty much every family with kids on Planet Earth owns either a Magna-Tiles set or a Magna Tiles copycat set, what's next?

This past autumn, Magna Tiles released the next iteration: Magna-Qubix!  Instead of 2D tiles, these are 3-dimensional magnetic shapes made out of those tiles that work exactly as Magna-Tiles do, but with an added dimension. If you thought your kids could build interesting things with Magna-Tiles wait until you see what they can do with Magna Qubix.
  • New from Magna-Tiles, the original 3D magnetic building sets that engage young minds by fusing together math, science and creativity
  • 29 translucent, colorful 3D shapes including 4 square pyramids, 8 triangular prisms, 12 cubes, 2 hexagonal prism and 3 rectangular prisms
  • Sparks hours of imaginative free play in children. Anything they can dream, they can create!
  • Develops math, science, spatial and tactile skills. STEM approved!
  • Safe, durable and built to last for years
  • Ages 3 years and up 
Magna-Qubix comes in sets of 29 and 19, but great news, the 29-piece set of Magna-Qubix is included in the $20 off $100 Amazon toy promotion.  So, here's how to get an 87-piece Magna-Quibix set (plus one other toy) for only $80.00.
  1. Add three 29-piece Magna-Cubix sets for $29.99 each to your shopping cart.  (The quantity limit on these sets is three per Amazon account.) So that's a total of $89.97
  2. Add another toy that cost at least $10.03 from this selection to your cart. 
  3. Amazon will automatically deduct $20.00 from your order!
