Epic flower deals

When I watch the new season of Tough Love, I think about how lucky The Big Fella is to have me.

Then I remind him how lucky he is to have me...

...especially on days like today when I score the world's best deal on the mother-in-law's Mother's Day present.

Bing has 30% cash back for several florists. When I saw that this morning, the wheels started turning. There was also a loud rusty grinding noise but I ignored that and forged ahead.

So, 30% cashback. Is it for Admin week or Mother's Day? I don't care. All I know is I got a historical deal on this bad boy.

Use code MDAYFREE9 to get $14.99 off on orders placed for delivery between Tuesday, May 4 and Thursday, May 6 (Mother's Day is Sunday, May 9).

*Applicable on select florist fulfilled gifts delivered within the United States. Items may vary BLAH BLAH BLAH. Offer available online and by phone. Offers cannot be combined, are not available on all products and are BLAH BLAH BLAH. Offer valid through 4/25/2010.

The great part of this deal is that Bing will give you 30% of the original price back. Shhh. Don't tell them.

So there you go.... you can be the world's best daughter-in-law. I didn't "take" The Big Fella's name so I'm not in the running. Wait 'til she finds out that my future kids are not going to "take" The Big Fella's name either. (I mean, "our kids." Ahem.)

Amazon $5 album mp3s

Amazon has a $5 sale on lots of good albums. Everyone should be comparing iTunes prices to Amazon's mp3 prices before buying.

Here are my picks

Birth Of The Cool (Rudy Van Gelder Edition) by Miles Davis. This is an amazing album. Everyone should listen to it!

Young Americans by David Bowie.

Oh, Inverted World by The Shins.

Lust For Life by Iggy Pop.

More here. Too lazy to type, yo.

25% Bing cashback and The Gap

I was going to tell you that Loft has an extra 40% off its sales items with code SALE40. Yawn. Who cares? I checked out their sale and it's totally blah.

Have you all tried Bing's cashback yet? I guess Bing is supposed to be a search engine or something but who cares about that #2? I only use bing's cashback feature. All you have to do is set up an account with them and before you make a purchase online, go to bing cashback, search for the store you're planning on making the purchase from, click on that store's link .... go through the magical bing portal (a window opens up telling you that you're actually getting to the site through bing cashback -- you must see this window to be sure you're getting the cashback) .... and complete your purchase like you normally would.

So, what's the point of all this? I swear there's a point. There's also a moral of the story at the end of this post. And, there will be a test tomorrow. Just kidding. Bing cashback gives you cash back on your purchases. You'll see that when you search for a store, each store that is part of this cashback program has a certain percentage (that goes up and down) next to it. You get that percentage of your purchase price back into a cashback account. After a certain amount of time (60 days or so? I'm just making that up but it takes a month or two for the cash to become availabe. In the meantime it's pending in cashback escrow.) your cashback becomes available. At that point, the nice people at Bing will email you and let you know that you're cash is available. When your cash totals at least $5 you can have that cash deposited into your paypal account or they'll send you a check. Or something else. I don't remember but it seemed like a bad idea.

Right now, Bing cashback is at 25% for Gap (and possibly for BR and ON too). Just go to Bing cashback and search for Gap or Gap cashback. Shop away with code GAPSALE25, which will give you 25% off on their sale and clearance items. Note that using codes is said to invalidate the Bing cashback. But I've used codes with Bing many times and have never had a problem but do so at your own risk.

The moral of the story (you thought I was kidding, huh?) is to never purchase something online without first checking to see if they've got this deal with Bing cashback.

American Eagle Outfitters -- free shipping sitewide + 30% off clearance

American Eagle Outfitters is offering free shipping on everything until Sunday April, 4. No coded needed.

They're also offering an additional 30% off clearance items with code 83461705.

Look, if you squint and tilt your head you can make believe you're at BR.

AE Medallion Ring

Merchandise: $9.95
Discount: - $2.99
Merchandise after Discount: $6.96
Shipping: FREE
Tax: help $0.00
Order Total: $6.96

But wait, there's more.

I accidentally put two rings in my cart and here's what I got:

Merchandise: $19.90
Discount: - $9.45
Merchandise after Discount: $10.45
Shipping: FREE
Tax: help $0.00
Order Total: $10.45

I don't know how good you are at Math but $9.45 is not 30 percent off $19.90.
It looks like accessories are buy one, get one half off automatically, although I can't find evidence of this on their site (I've purchased accessories from them before with this deal though). The BOGO-half-off deal took the price of two rings down to $14.93. Pile the 30% off that and you get $10.45. With no shipping, yo.

You're welcome.
