I cannot help it. I’m a sucker for a sale. There, I said it. I sometimes have the urge to buy something JUST because it’s a good deal. I know, sick right? My Amazon Prime membership is probably the bane of my existence according to my husband. No, now I’m just being dramatic. But in all seriousness, I love shopping and I love sales. It’s especially difficult to pass up a sale on anything kid-related. Luckily, thanks to family, friends, and perusing the interwebs, I’ve come across a number of websites with great kids deals. And because I’m not one to hoard information and holidays are fast approaching, I felt the need to share it with you all. Enjoy!
Zulily has at least five daily deals for babies and kids each day (and sometimes for mom’s and pregnant moms as well). The website updates at 8:00 a.m. CST daily. Most of the items are usually high-end children’s clothing, but they also have furniture, accessories, outerwear, games, toys, diaper bags, hand bags, you name it. I have ordered from them and been happy with what I purchased. The only downside is that if you order at the beginning of the sale – meaning there are still a few days before that sales ends – then you might be waiting a couple of weeks to get your item. They don’t process your order until the end of the sale. They also don’t keep stock in a warehouse, so after each deal (they usually last 72 hours) that’s it. New brands move in and get their three days on the site. And if you join, there’s a $15 referral bonus for spreading the word.
This is part of the woot.com collection of websites. What’s nice is that you don’t have to sign up to peruse the deals, so it’s easy to check everyday. Like the other Woot sites, a new deal is posted every night at midnight Central time, in limited quantities at a discounted price. Only one product is available at any given time. If you want one, you click that big orange button that says I WANT ONE. When it sells out, or the next midnight rolls around, that deal is gone. No ifs, ands or buts. Nice thing about it is that the shipping on any daily deal is just $5.
Kidsteals has two new deals each day from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. CST. The feature products for 50-80%. Like the other sites, once the quantity for the deals run out or once the time is up, they’re gone. I haven’t actually ordered from this site yet, but I can almost guarantee that I will once Noah is older.
Babysteals is the same as kid steals…but for babies (same rules, same number of deals, same time). I haven’t gotten anything from them yet either, but I’ve had my eye on a few things. The one time I did talk myself into pulling the proverbial trigger, they were sold out. So, if you want something, act fast as quantities are limited!
Baby Half Off
Baby half off has one deal each day (sometimes two around the holidays). The deal changes at 9:00 a.m. CST and quantities are limited. Most of their products are for children ten years and younger, but they do have some deals for moms and moms to be as well.
Mamabargains continuously updates their bargains when something runs out, so there can end up being multiple deals a day. It is very unplanned and mysterious as far as when the next deal will begin. It’s like a fun little game, except it could require some stalking if you’re a hardcore bargain hunter. I haven’t found anything to buy on here yet, but I know the time will come.
KidCrawl is a tool to search baby and kid products, compare prices, read and share reviews, and find the best prices on the web. You type in what you want, they crawl the web for the best deals.
My one caveat: some of the sites do not accept returns, so make sure read the FAQ’s for each site.
Have fun. Happy bargaining!
