7 Ways To Save Even More On Memorial Day Sales

While many consumers will hit the road to celebrate Memorial Day with a weekend getaway, millions of others will be heading to the mall to hunt down the season’s  best bargains. Memorial Day weekend represents one of the biggest sale events of the year and also the best time to buy certain items, including mattresses and  refrigerators.

Discounts will be plentiful this weekend, but savvy shoppers know there’s more to getting a deal than just buying something on sale. To spend less on your purchases  this Memorial Day weekend, read up on the following seven “s’s” to saving even more.

Study the deals.
Since retailers will try to trick you into believing that everything is on sale this weekend, it’s important to study the deals to differentiate the best and worst  buys. Summer items like clothing and swimsuits will see some discounts, but this biggest deals will be found on spring clearance, home goods and mattresses. Grills  and patio furniture will headline ads and store circulars, however, these big-ticket items are better priced later in the season when retailers focus on fall and  winter products. Check out Dealnews for a comprehensive Memorial Day buying guide.

Shop early.
Retailers typically start offering Memorial Day sales the week before the holiday itself. Plan to shop early to take advantage of a larger selection of sale items.  If you wait untilMonday, most of the good stuff will be picked through. In addition to in-store offers, online deals will abound making it possible to avoid the crowds  altogether and take advantage of savings from the comfort of your home, or road if you’re traveling.

Seek out stackable savings.
Scored a sale? Don’t stop there. Look for coupons to deepen the discount even further! Memorial Day weekend will see tons of stackable savings, so download a free  coupon app like Coupon Sherpa for extra in-store deals like a free $20 Babies’ R Us gift card with $100 diaper, wipe, food or formula purchase through May 30. Also  look for promo codes for online purchases, like $15 off your $75 order from The Gap or 20% off your highest-priced product with $60 purchase with an  Aeropostale coupon.

Sign up for savings.
If you can’t find an additional coupon or promo code to sweeten your Memorial Day haul, sign up for savings by opting into a retailer’s email newsletter program. Most  stores will send new member discounts of 10 to 20% off! Consider signing up a few days before the sale starts to ensure you receive the coupon in time to use it for  your shopping spree. You may even consider creating a separate email account for all your retail offers to stay organized.

Scrutinize prices.
Don’t assume the 20 to 30% savings is the best one around. Comparison shop to make sure you’re getting the deepest discount by using the  ShopSavvy app, which scans the  barcode of a product you’re looking at and provides a list of local and online prices. You can also use  CamelCamelCamel.com to compare the price histories of products  sold on Amazon, and setup deal alerts to get notified when something you’re shopping for drops in price.

Swing by an outlet center.
Malls, department stores and boutique shops aren’t the only ones hosting Memorial Day sales. Your nearby outlet center will also offer store-wide sales as well as  additional discounts for even bigger savings. In addition to looking up coupons on a mobile app, visit the outlet center’s website for information about available  deals and coupons. Also remember that not everything at an outlet center is a good deal, so learn how to get the  best deals from outlet shopping before you go.

Score cash back.
Get something back for the purchases you’re making online with EBates, which gives you between two and 10% back on online orders just by shopping through their portal.  You can also use Paribus to receive reimbursements when something you purchased online drops in price. The tool scans your inbox for online receipts and tracks prices  for you, taking a cut of the refund they find.

Boxer Briefs with a Lifetime Guarantee? Yep

cariloha stock man

Guys I’m speaking on my husband’s experiences. He has a couple pair of boxers that he just loves, his favorite ones. I’ve seen him walk around with holes in his boxers because he refuses to part with his favorite boxers.  One time I went as far as to throw them away when he wasn’t looking.  I know I know but really, you should have seen these things. I guess I get it, I have bras that are more comfortable than others. That being said, what if your favorite pair of boxer briefs came with a lifetime guarantee?

Cariloha crazy soft boxer briefs with fly just might be your new favorite pair of boxer briefs. Super soft, breathable, light weight boxer briefs made from ecofriendly viscose from bamboo.  The are available in 4 different colors on Amazon.  My one son chose the steel color which is a nice bluish gray color.

He says they’re really comfortable and fit just right. I prefer my boys where boxer briefs when they’re wearing shorts just for modestly reasons. My middle son prefers boxer briefs all the time though.

cariloha band

My son liked them so much in fact that he’s hoping I’ll get him a few more pair. With the lifetime guarantee it seems worth it too. The lifetime guarantee covers ripping, tearing, and pilling so that seems to be the most common things to experience with a pair of boxers. Not really sure about what happens when holes are worn in them due to years of washing and wearing.

I received the above mentioned product at a discount in order to complete an honest review. Any opinions expressed are my own. This post also contains affiliate links. Regardless I only posts legitimate offers from trusted sites.


Do you know the signs of stroke? Would you know what to do?

Would you know what to do if you or someone you know was having a stroke? Would you even know how to tell if someone was having a stroke? I work at a local hospital and I can tell you that this is plastered every where. It’s part of our yearly mandatory educationals. Why? Because every second counts in seeking help for someone with a stroke.

Big graphic

There are many super heroes out there. Moms, Dads, Grandparents, people who are simply lending a hand to others. We consider those people super heroes. Many of those super heroes are behind the scenes; they never get recognition for what they do, and that is okay with them.

But what if you could be a super hero that saves lives? You might be thinking – wow, that would be a big deal – right? It is much easier than you might think!

Flying

May is American Stroke Month, so we’re working with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association and the Ad Council to raise awareness about Stroke knowledge, prevention, and what to do in an emergency. Stroke is the No. 1 preventable cause of disability – and 80 percent of strokes are preventable!

You don’t need superpowers to be a Stroke Hero.

super hero

You can be a Stroke Hero by controlling your blood pressure and other risk factors and by knowing F.A.S.T, the warning signs of stroke, so you’re ready to take action and help others know when and how to take action! Only 9% of us can identify all the letters in the F.A.S.T. acronym for stroke. When you recognize a stroke and immediately call 9-1-1, the person has a greater chance of getting to an appropriate hospital quickly and being assessed for treatment options like a clot-busting drug or clot-removing device.

How to spot a stroke F.A.S.T. (the warning signs):

  • F – Face Drooping – Does one side of the face droop or is it numb? Ask the person to smile.
  • A – Arm Weakness – Is one arm weak or numb? Ask the person to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?
  • S – Speech Difficulty – Is speech slurred? Are they unable to speak, or are they hard to understand? Ask the person to repeat a simple sentence like: “The sky is blue.” Is the sentence repeated correctly?
  • T- Time to call 9-1-1 – If the person shows any of these symptoms, even if the symptoms go away, call 9-1-1 and get them to the hospital immediately.

If you know someone who could be at risk for a stroke, or even yourself – take the #StrokeHero quiz. It is fast, easy, and could save your life or the lives of people that you love.

Superpower

While stroke threatens millions of lives, it is largely preventable, treatable and beatable. Together, we can end stroke. Share this with your family, friends, co-workers and community by sharing on social media. You can share this post or tweet: You don’t need superpowers to be a #StrokeHero.

Want to get more involved? Join the #StrokeChat hosted by @American_Stroke on 5/18 at 12pm CDT. Stroke experts will join from local AHA/ASA handles coast to coast and we’ll have an engaging conversation about superpowers, the face of stroke, what’s in the news, and give away some swag from NBA All Star Paul George and ALEX AND ANI who just debuted a new bangle honoring stroke survivors.
