So, if the early bird gets the worm, what does the wait-until-the-last-minute bird get? Well, if you’re talking about Halloween costumes, that bird gets the GOOD DEAL!

For just $20 you can get at voucher worth $40 to spend online at Costume Kingdom! That’s 50% OFF! The voucher is good until 4/18/11, so you can snag an even BETTER DEAL if you wait for those post-Halloween sales to stock up on costumes for next year (or your kids’ playroom). And, get FREE SHIPPING on orders of $65 or more (that’s just $45 for you, my friend, when you use this voucher!).

Your voucher starts the day AFTER you purchase it, and Costume Kingdom says the last day to place your order for Halloween arrival using regular shipping is October 26 (4pm PDT).

Expires: The $40 for $20 voucher is for sale through 10/24/2010, but you’ll want to purchase it sooner if you want your costume(s) by Halloween 2010. The voucher is good through 4/18/2011.
