33% OFF at Borders or Waldenbooks September 13, 2010

BordersIt seems “birthday season” is upon my household. Our refrigerator is getting plastered with birthday party invitations and my 4.5yo is starting his cake obsession again… It happens every fall. So, in anticipation of all these gifts, I’ve started really paying attention to when the bookstores offer coupons. I think books make the PERFECT gift (no batteries needed!), and you can give them with a gift receipt if there’s any question.

Here’s a coupon for 33% OFF the list price of any one item at Borders or Waldenbooks. Print a coupon and take it with you to the store, or use code BAE8295M online at Borders.com (and get FREE SHIPPING on orders of $25 or more). You’ll need to be a Borders Rewards member to use the deal, but it is free and easy to sign up.

$23.99 Leap Frog Tag Reading System (reg. $49.99) February 16, 2010

What an AMAZING deal! We purchased the Leap Frog Tag Reading System for our 4-year-old son just after Christmas for $49.99. He LOVES it. I love that he can learn to read while wearing headphones in the backseat of the car on road trips…

Well, here’s one HECK of a deal! The Leap Frog Tag Reading System, regularly $49.99 is on sale for $29.99 on Leap Frog’s site, and you can get an additional 20% OFF when you use code LPTHW9. This brings the purchase of the reading system AND the included book to just $23.99 plus tax! If you add another book or two onto your purchase so that the total is over $50, you’ll get FREE SHIPPING too.

Grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents, anyone who knows a kiddo in the 4 – 8 age range, please check this out. Not only does the pen “read” the book to your kiddo, it engages your child in educational games within the book. This is far better than a video game, and perfect for that quiet time in the afternoon that all kids need.  You can even follow your child’s progress online!

Expires: Code expires March 31, 2010. I’m not sure when the sale itself ends.
