UPDATE 10/29/09 2:45pm: Thanks to Courtney, one of our fabulous readers who let us know the coupon is for the DVD/Blu-Ray combo which WalMart has listed online at $23. So, the final deal after the coupon if you shop at WalMart is $13. Still a deal!

If you know a child or are simply a child at heart, chances are you’ll love this movie. Disney is offering a printable coupon for $10 off the Tinkerbell and The Lost Treasure DVD/Blu-Ray combo which brings the price down to just $9.99! WalMart has the DVD for $19.86 according to their website. You may be able to find it elsewhere for less. Shop around and let us know the best place to pick up this sweet new flick – but don’t wait too long because the coupon expires on Halloween!

Perfect holiday gift for in-laws, party hosts, anyone!

Pottery Barn has the perfect holiday gifts for your in-laws, party hosts, office assistant, and practically anyone else on your list… Especially those hard-to-buy-for people.  I’ll be honest; I’m a sucker for anything with a monogram, and I’m a traditionalist when it comes to presents. I also very much appreciate good customer service, so here are some deals that fit the bill!

Their monogrammed square soap set is on sale for $29 (with FREE shipping) – a set of 4 monogrammed with a single initial or a 3-letter monogram, and made of 100% vegetable-based ingredients. Do you have a mother-in-law? She wants these! Sure to earn you some brownie points!

Another gift item to check out is their linen hemstitch guest towels. They come in a set of 2 for just $19 (with FREE shipping), and add a monogram for just $6.50 more. Order a few sets to keep on hand for those last-minute hostess gifts, or plan ahead and order some monogrammed for the holidays. Need a gift for your boss? A set of these with his or her last initial would definitely have a good “Wow! You really thought of me!” factor.

If you don’t already have one, and your phone is Bluetooth-compatible, BUY THIS HEADSET! Yes, it is inexpensive, and yes, it may not be top of the line, but get that phone out of your hands when you’re in the car. Like the instructors back in driver’s ed taught you, keep those hands at 10 and 2.

TODAY, is featuring the Samsung WEP470 Progressive Noise Filtering Bluetooth Headset for what ends up being just $5! Up front you’ll pay $19.99 plus $5 shipping, but included with your headset will be a $20 mail-in-rebate form, so for just $5 you’ll be a little bit safer (and avoid that crimp in your neck or wrist).
