  • Midmorning Coffee: Holiday Lightning Deals are back!


    I thought it was strange that Amazon stopped the lightning deals, so I was happy to see that they didn’t. There Holiday Lightning Deals all day today, including an Easy Bake Oven at 8 a.m. PST (for less than $29.02), Toy Story 3 Buzz Lightyear Spaceshooter at 3 p.m. (for less than $15), and a Lennox Holiday teapot at 5 p.m. (for less than $29.95). Disclosure: I’m an Amazon affiliate, so any purchase you make after entering Amazon through a link on Chief Family Officer supports this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you!

    This is a little weird: I got an email saying that if you buy a $50+ gift card, you’ll get a promotional code for $5 off an Amazon purchase in January, limit one per customer. But I don’t see anything about it on the gift card page, and there’s no mention that it’s an exclusive offer in the email. Since I just got the email yesterday, maybe they haven’t updated the page yet – or, if you were planning to buy $50+ in Amazon gift cards anyway, you might be in for a happy surprise.

    Today’s Video Game deals are on Guitar Hero and DJ Hero.

    And today’s free holiday mp3 is Winter Night by Little & Ashley.

    Wild for Wags found some cheap cards that work for the Hallmark Register Rewards deal at Walgreens.

    For the Mommas reports that you might be able to get a free-after-ECB bottle of Cold Buster at CVS.
