Editors' picks: Best deals, sales for this week
DealNews editors found five deals and sales for readers. For Cole Haan's biannual sale, save up to 50 percent off with an extra 30 percent off.
With a new and long week ahead of us, we're scouring the web looking for anything self-indulgent enough to get us through. Luckily, we've found bright and shiny spoils, including all-time lows on Samsung Galaxy Tab S preorders and the 13" MacBook Air. These deals and more are in today's list of five Editors' Choice deals that we found overnight and early this morning.
Cole Haan Biannual Sale
Store: Cole Haan
Discount: Up to 50 percent off with extra 30 percent off via "COLLEGE"
Shipping: $10.95 s&h or free shipping over $150
Do You Need It?: Looking for a pair of designer kicks on a budget? You can currently nab one of many pairs at an all-time price low at Cole Haan with this coupon code in tow. With the discounts combined, it's the best sale of the year from the designer shoe store and yields many low prices on quality shoes, boots, and sandals. We're liking the discounted Cole Haan Men's Christy Wedge Ghilley Oxford Shoes (pictured) for $69.96 (a $41 low) or the Cole Haan Women's Taylor Wedge Sandals for $83.96 (a $4 low).
Do You Need It?: If you're lucky enough to have a valid .edu email address still, then you can grab this MacBook Air at Best Buy for the best price we've ever seen including refurbished units. Plus, it's bundled with 6 months of Titanium Internet Security! Together, they're a massive $149 less than the next cheapest store. The MacBook Air features an Intel Core i5 1.3GHz dual-core CPU, 13.3" 1440x900 LED-backlit LCD, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, Facetime camera, Thunderbolt, and Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
(Note that once you enter your email address, you'll receive an email containing a link to a unique code which will bag the discount.)
Do You Need It?: We're always first to discourage you from splashing out big bucks on kids' clothes because of their attraction to everything messy and their incredible ability to stretch at super speeds. Since The Children's Place is offering a wide range of adorable items at low prices during one of its best ever sales, it's the perfect opportunity to keep the spending low when dressing the little ones. Two items to consider are The Children's Place Girls' Fit 'N Flare Floral Dress (pictured) for $8.39 ($17 off) or The Children's Place Boys' Dude Graphic T-Shirt for $4.19 ($6 off).
Do You Need It?: If you were thinking of taking the plunge and buying Samsung's new gizmo, then make sure you do at Sears. There, Shop Your Way Rewards members can bag a free cover and $125 in points to spend on a future purchase, making this bundle a current and massive price low by $163. It features Exynos 5 Octa 1.9GHz quad core & 1.3GHz quad core CPUs, a 10.5" 2560x1600 AMOLED display, 3GB RAM, 16GB storage, 8MP camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, microSD card slot, USB, Android 4.4 (Kit Kat), and a 7,900mAh battery. (Note that you must add the cover to cart separately. It's due for release on July 10.)
