Back to School with RetailMeNot + $500 VISA GIFT CARD GIVEAWAY!!!

Good morning!  I hope your weekend was fabulous.  Today I am sharing the best way for you to save money when you shop along with a $500 giveaway that you do not want to miss.  This post is sponsored by RetailMeNot! Thank you for supporting our family and our awesome sponsors!

————————————————————————————————

BACK TO SCHOOL!!

I think this past summer went by faster than any other summer of my entire life.  School is here and both Brooke and Knox are now in elementary school.   I am currently trying to teach Skye how to say mama and how to sleep in until 7 at home;)

Knox officially started Kindergarten!  When I picked him up after his first day of school he told me he was shy at first but then he changed to friendly.  He said he learned about raccoons and that recess was fun but way too short.  He also told me that a GIRL TOLD HIM A SECRET!  He was so excited to choose out his outfit the night before.  Knox is very proud of his soccer backpack because he is a big soccer enthusiast currently.

Brooke is now a 1st grader!  She has a fabulous teacher.  Just the woman’s smile and talking to her for 5 seconds puts me in a good mood.  Brooke thinks life is the coolest now that she gets to eat lunch at school with her friends.  She wants to be in the front row and she is so proud that she is in charge of watering the plants for the rest of the week.

When I walk Brooke to her classroom in the mornings she is a little too cool to hold my hand.   This is probably because she is too busy waving to people in the halls.  And now I am in a new stage of life again, it’s just Skye and me for a big chunk of the day.  She sure misses the big kids but is happy for focus time together going on long walks, consuming large amounts of sweet potatoes with me and exploring new toys!

After their first day of school I took them out for a special ‘first day of school’ treat.  I also did a fun little picnic with both Brooke and Knox separately to celebrate school starting.  During our picnic we talked all about the best way to make new friends—>  To be a friend!  I am pretty sure my favorite part of the day is when I pick them up and I get to hear all of their thoughts about the day!

Getting the whole family ready this year for school has been quite the task.   I am a huge fan of how easy RetailMeNot makes saving money on everything that we need!  If you’re not familiar, RetailMeNot is the ultimate destination for your back to school needs and for the rest of the year too!

Brooke has entered a very opinionated stage as far as her clothing goes so she is very involved in the decision making process ha.  Who else has kids in this stage?

With RetailMeNot you can save up to 70% on clothing, school supplies, electronics and whatever else you need to be prepared for this school year!  With 70% off on our back to school needs we will all have more money to spend on race bibs, right?

You can go to RetailMeNot or download the free app (that’s what I have on my phone and love it…) to get thousands of awesome deals, coupons and cash back offers.

You can even COMBINE coupons with cash back offers which saves even more money when you are shopping.

I get an awesome upper body workout whenever I take Skye shopping.   She is wigglier than ever lately.

RetailMeNot has made things even easier now for your online shopping with the RetailMeNot Genie browser extension!  If you are too busy to search for deals, the RetailMeNot Genie browser extension does all of the work for you.  It is a total game changer and I can’t believe I didn’t know about this before!

It finds, combines, and applies savings at checkout!  You just go to the online store that you plan on shopping at, add items to your cart, and Genie then reveals any available deals you can apply to your purchases at that store at that time.  I love that little rush I get when I see how much I have saved at checkout!

Here are a few of the deals we found through RetailMeNot to get ready for school—>  The Macy’s Back-To-School Pop-Up Sale + Free Shipping (PLUS up to $40 cash back for online purchases), up to $20 cash back for online purchases at Staples, 25% off $40+ purchase at Carter’s and 15% off orders of $100+ at Kohl’s.

Brooke told me that she had four recesses one day at school… She must be getting in a few miles of running each day now too!

Skye thought it was only fair that she get some new clothing too.

I can’t get enough of RetailMeNot! I didn’t know about the genie though. Will definitely be checking that out!! My favorite is using it at Old Navy and Kohls :)

I have never used this site, but it looks fantastic! Also, Brooks curls are adorable!

I love RetailMeNot! I didn’t know about the browser extension, though! I just installed it—thanks for sharing! I especially love that it has discounts at Target and Kohl’s. Kohl’s already has great sale prices, but there’s an extra 15-percent off offer right now. I have no need for back-to-school clothes, but surely back-to-fall outfits are needed at work, right??!

I love finding online coupon codes so the browser extension is such a great idea!! Can’t wait to use it at Sephora!

Reply

I downloaded the extension – I am excited for ALL the codes, but especially Target!

Thinking of back to school shopping excited about the $15 off $30 at Old Navy

Thank you for sharing your family with us everyday. <3
And thank you for the giveaway!! Target is across town from me and whoa, the deals I'm seeing are making it a lot more worthwhile to go. :D I frequently shop at Vitacost too, so that's cool as well.

I had no clue about this app. Excited to give it a try. Especially for the Justice code. My daughters favorite store.

Ps. My son spent the summer in Utah and has a new favorite restaurant Cafe Rio. 😁

Reply

Looking forward to using the Old Navy code!

Reply

I check retail me not every time I order online. I normally always find something I can use! I like it for stores like Gap and ON as it helps me to know which discount codes I can stack for maximum savings!

Reply

I’m obsessed with RetailMeNot, used to use them just for coupon codes but now i love the cash back! I’ll use it for Sephora :)

Reply

I’m a huge Old Navy fan for our whole family! I will be using the codes for there =)

Hobby Lobby here I come!!!

Sephora is ALWAYS my favorite discount!

Reply

Ohhh Neat! I installed the extension and went to Amazon, where I tend to purchase quite often because they have such a great variety of things that I need. The first code to pop up was 10% Off $100+ on Textbooks + Free 2 Day Shipping which for me is AMAZING because I’m a graduate student and need to pinch pennies wherever I can. Especially on textbooks. I already have my books this semester (thanks to Amazon!) but I’ll definitely keep this in mind for spring semester!

Do you know if retail me not can be used in Canada or is it just for US?

There is a separate site for Canada. http://Www.Retailmenot.ca

I loooooooove RetailMeNot!!!!!! Target 4 sure!

Yes summer went way too fast this year! It’s a little weird adjusting to having less kids at home at first. I’m not sure what I’ll do in a few years when my son goes to school. I’ll have so much free time. At least I think that way now. That could completely change in that amount of time.

Reply

Target and LOFT :)

Reply

My favorite store is TJ Maxx, so I’m most excited to use the Genie for discounts there! I’ve used Retail Me Not for a while now, so I’m excited for this new feature. :)

Reply

Old Navy! And Sephora of course :)

Reply

Awesome!! Old Navy is always the best online, and now there’s more deals. Thank you!

Reply

I love RetailMeNot. I use the phone app and it has come in handy when I am at the mall and find something I like and then get a bonus of saving money on top of it. I will have to check out the browser extension, but currently for my online shopping I use EBates and they do a similar thing with applying coupons for you and then you get a percentage cash back and they send the money directly to your paypal or a check every quarter.

Reply

Target and Old Navy are essential for Back To School supplies!!!

Reply

Thanks for sharing this! With an almost one year old I’m most excited for Carter’s and Buy Buy Baby. This is a great app and I am going to be using it very soon. It will be great for Christmas shopping too!

I already use an eBates extension, but I just installed this one & am very curious to see which gets me better deals, or better yet if I can use both! Thanks for sharing! I have a lot of school shopping to do at Old Navy so I’ll be testing it soon!

I can’t believe that I haven’t used this before. I have used and still use ebates, here and there. This seems very convenient and I am excited to use it at Sephora. My daughter loves that store and I love saving money. Really, I am excited to use this at all of the stores we shop at.

I love following your running and blog. I have been a runner for years but just signed up for my first full marathon this upcoming January! On Saturday I ran my longest run to date: 14 miles! (I’ve raced several half marathons but have never run longer than that until now.) I’m also a fellow Brooks enthusiast. :) I’m excited to keep following you and getting tips.

I just installed the RetailMeNot browser extension. I’ve used their site before but didn’t know about the extension. That will help save a step or two when I need my 30% off plus free shipping from Kohl’s. Thanks!

Reply

Definitely going to Target!!

Reply

I didn’t know about the extension on the browser. YAY! Can’t wait to use the extra 15% off on kohls

Had no idea about the Genie even though I’ve been using RetailMeNot for years. So excited for $15 off $30 at Old Navy – may buy a few post-partum things for myself!

I love the idea of a browser extension! The Vitacost coupon or the $15 off $30 at Old Navy is what would make me most excited!

I am an Old Navy Activewear addict so I’d have to say that I am most excited about the deals ($15 off $30) that will let me buy even MORE!

I’m a new mom to a 5 week old baby girl, so I’m very interested in the Target discounts, but also love the Old Navy one. I’m in desperate need of some nursing-friendly clothes and Old Navy has been my go-to for those so far!

Downloaded app – will use at Macy’s and Eileen Fisher first !

I love that genie! It’s such a cool thing–and I wouldn’t have known about it except for your post!

I’m most excited about Sephora. Sometimes I have a hard time going in there in the mall–the music is loud and the smell of all the perfumes gets to me. But there are some things I have had sample sizes of before and want FULL SIZED items of, and I love that by going on the sephora website and looking with the Genie I get all of the possible discounts listed for me. That’s pretty rad. And since I have recently found the PERFECT combo of lip liner and lip gloss to get my current “most perfect nude lip ever” with a bit more gloss and shine than my more matte-look of “my (current) most perfect nude lip ever,” I can see all the ways to save money just by scrolling down the genie’s pop up window. I love it!!!

I also think I would use it a good deal on the Macy’s website. There are three Macy’s stores convenient to me–and seeing the genie and what discounts that are available for me AND being able to apply those discounts to a “buy online and pick up in store” purchase for whichever of these three locations has the inventory, well…WELL!!!!!…this makes it even easier for me to shop at Macy’s (where it seems like there is always a discount).

(and please don’t tell Mama Nordstrom’s that I cheat on her with Sister Macy’s…will you pinky-swear me on that one?)

Now…if only the genie could pay my bills for me AND could fast forward time to payday at the end of the week. ;)

I love Retail Me Not! I always feel like I got some secret deal when I find a coupon! I love Kohls, especially because you can stack the coupons there!

Reply

Just have to say, Skye does not look impressed :). During a marathon training cycle – hmmm for my first one maybe 2 or 3. Later, on, I did marathon training while also training for an ultra marathon training, so then I probably ran longer than 20 miles but I didn’t always keep track.

Outside of running, taking a few months where I don’t race and don’t have a schedule to follow. I will still run but they aren’t structured – I will just go out and run rather than I have to do x or y. It takes the pressure off and makes running much more fun and gives me a mental break. I should probably go to the gym but working on that :)

Have a great day – Excited for your marathon! You will be awesome!
