Cyber Monday Deals (with Coupon Codes!)

It’s officially holiday shopping season! Well, let’s be real… holiday sales started right after Halloween this year. But Cyber Monday is still a perfect time to stock up on gifts (or stuff for yourself) with steep discounts available at most etailers.

I scoured the Internet looking for awesome deals so that you don’t have to. So if you spent your weekend avoiding the mall or opting outside, here are some Cyber Monday sales you can check out from the peace and warmth of your couch.

Deals on Designer Bags

I used to roll my eyes at designer bags, never thinking they were worth the huge price tag. But as I started working in a more corporate environment that appreciates a sophisticated look, I started keeping my eyes open for deals on higher quality bags.

I’m a firm believer that something you’ll keep forever or get a ton of use out of is worth a higher price tag, if you calculate price per wear (divide the price tag by the amount of times you use it). The beautiful construction of Coach bags and their soft leather is something that drew me to the brand, and the lack of large buckles or tacky bling keeps them looking simple and classy.

Luckily, they have outlets where you can snag major discounts on their bags, wallets, clothing, and accessories — even above 50% off. And even better, they have an online Coach outlet that occasionally runs flash sales for all members. All you have to do is create an account (for free) and make sure you get the emails. Here are some of my current favorites in the Coach outlet’s sale.

9 Sneakers You Can Wear to Work

Comfort is key for those 14-hour days at the office. But we can’t exactly all show up to work in our running sneakers and pencil skirt (and if you can, consider yourself one of the lucky ones). Striking the right balance between not feeling your feet ache and impressing the boss with your outfit is tough, but fortunately many designers are catching on to the sneaker trend.

Here are 9 sneakers that are super comfy and still stylish enough to be work appropriate.

How I Earn Money While Shopping

I’d been seeing the commercials on TV with “real life” moms and housewives talking about how they love getting paid to shop. But I’d never paid it any mind and immediately thought of Ebates as a scheme. It didn’t make sense to me. Recently one of my closest friends tried it and invited me to sign up. Before doing so, I searched for customer complaints to see if I could figure out how the scheme works. But instead I read about how Ebates is able to pay people to shop, and decided to give it a try.


What I found was amazing. Upon my first two purchases, I received a $10 Target gift card in the mail as a sign-up reward. I do a lot of online shopping, so within a few months, I’d earned over $30 in Ebates cash back. To my surprise, that check came in the mail without me having to do any extra work. And yes, the check cleared.

Now Ebates even enables you to earn cash back by shopping in store, simply by linking store discounts to your credit card and then purchasing with that credit card.

Gift Guide for the Boss

While I’ve already finished my holiday shopping for my family and friends, shopping for my boss is always the most difficult gift to find. It’s important to make a good impression, but still get something useful or thoughtful – and not overly cheesy (unless your boss is into that). Here are some ideas for gifts to buy your boss this holiday season.

Fall Shoe Haul

One of the best things about summer changing to spring is buying new shoes to last through the colder months. Whether it’s leather booties for the daily commute and work day, comfortable lace-ups for the weekend errands to nights out, or sneakers for the super casual days, fall shoes are my favorite fashion item. Here’s what I bought for this 2014 season.

I have to admit, I used to be a huge ALDO shopper, but hadn’t been to crazy about their lines the past two years. This season, they’ve been my go-to shop for new shoes. What is your favorite place to shop for shoes this fall?
