big ticket items

Kidkraft Castlewood Wooden Play Set: ($799; $950 off!) If you’re looking for Santa to knock your kids’ socks off this year, this amazing play set will do just that, with a 2-story playhouse, multiple swings and TWO slides! There is nothing better then sending your kids outside to blow off some steam, and we promise you will never regret having this in your backyard! Kidkraft also has a great deal on a smaller Swing Set that still has 2 swings and a slide for $239 ($160 off) if you’re looking to go big on a smaller budget.

Sportspower Bellevue Kids Wooden Playhouse: ($139; $110 off) Another foolproof way to get your kids outdoors is with a playhouse, and this one couldn’t be cuter, and more importantly, is super high-quality. It’s made of cedar so is naturally resistant to rot and insects, and has great features like pass-through windows, a working door and flower boxes.

Little Tikes Jump ‘n Slide Inflatable Bounce House: ($159.99; $140 off) We mentioned this deal in our subscriber email, but it’s so good we had to share it again – perfect for play dates, birthday parties and for blowing off some steam!

Bounce Pro 14’ Trampoline: ($189; $180 off) If you have tweens or teens who already have it all, a trampoline makes an amazing joint sibling gift. This one is a great size, comes with all the safety features, and also includes a cool electron shooter game where kids use a handheld remote to shoot targets and earn points on an electronic counter. It will not only get them outside, but it is one heck of a workout too!

ECR4Kids Soft Zone Corner Climber: If you have the space in your playroom for these soft “blocks”, they are fabulous for developing your little one’s gross motor skills, and for keeping them busy in the colder winter months. This set features stairs and a “slide” and is currently 40% off.

Radio Flyer 3‐in‐1 EZ Folding Wagon with Canopy: (38% off) Whether you take it to the beach, the park or the pumpkin patch, this wagon is the best — includes a sun shade and converts from a 2‐seater to a bench!

Little Tikes Perfect Fit 4‐in‐1 Trike: (27% off) Amazing big gift for your toddler and one that will grow with them — it starts as a bike they can sit on while you push and then transitions into a tricycle. It even has a storage bucket, cup holder and shade canopy!  

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text – electronics + baby gear” _builder_version=”3.8.1″]

electronics + gadgets

Garmin Vivo Fit Jr.: ($30 off; 38% off) This is one of our editor’s choice items in our Non‐Toy Practical Gift Guide and was a big hit with our own kids. The Garmin Vivofit Jr is a wearable activity tracker watch for kids 4-9 that tracks their steps, sleep and percentage towards their 60 minute daily activity goal. There’s also a free app you can sync where you can create a personalized chore system which has been a game changer for my family. Your kids won’t ever want to take it off!

Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition: ($30 off, 43%!) If your kids are constantly playing with your Alexa then they will be positivity chuffed to get their very own. The Echo Dot Kids Edition has all the same Alexa capabilities – she’ll play music, answer questions, tell stories and jokes, but all with kids in mind. But what we love best, is that you can use the parent controls to pause it when it’s time for homework or bedtime, and also lets you review their activity. It also comes with 1‐year of FreeTime Unlimited that includes over 1000 Audible books, ad‐free radio stations and kid‐friendly games. And we love the new Rainbow color!

Amazon Fire Kids Tablets: (25-40% off) All Fire devices are on major sale so if you’ve been thinking of taking the plunge and getting one for your kids, now is the time. We love them for many reasons. First, all Fire Kids Edition tablets come with 1 year of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited, a kid‐proof case, and a 2‐year worry‐free guarantee – which means if they break it, Amazon will replace it, no questions asked. But our favorite thing about them: the parental controls. There’s tons of options to set restrictions on what your kids can or can not do (including ebooks, apps, and TV shows), and for how long. The Fire 8 and new Fire 10 are all discounted 25-40%!

Apple AirPods (20% off): If your teenager has been on the “nice” list this year, these AirPods rarely go on sale and would pretty much make their year.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera: $20 off (30%) These Instant Cameras make killer gifts for hard‐to‐please tweens and teens. It’s all the fun of a Polaroid‐style camera, but updated with modern add‐ons like a selfie mirror and auto flash. They come in all sorts of fun candy colors.

HP Sprocket Portable Photo Printer: (23% off) You’ll get the Parent of the Year Award if you grab one of the hottest gifts for tweens/teens, the HP Sprocket Portable Photo Printer. This compact printer easily connects to any device using Bluetooth and can print 2×3” stickable snapshots. The photos can also be customized before printing using the HP Sprocket app with text, borders, emojis and more. The quality of the photos is the best we’ve seen from such a small printer, and your kids will love having a fun way to keep all their memories close at hand.

If your child will be graduating to a convertible seat this year, now is a great time to get the top-rated Britax seats at up to 30% off, including their Britax Boulevard (20% off) and the Britax Advocate (20% off).

We found single and double BOB jogging strollers for 20% off at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Cyber Week Strategy

We’ve included some of our all-time favorite tips for shopping the Cyber Week deals…read on for more strategy and big money saving ideas! 

Strategy #1: Don’t stop at the holidays

The biggest sales of the year will happen from Friday to Monday, so don’t just think about the upcoming holidays.

Think ahead to what gifting occasions you’ll have in 2018 – birthdays, anniversaries, Easter, Father’s Day…are there items on sale that you can get now and know will still be loved in a few months time? If so, take advantage of those deals! 

Strategy #2: Think big

This goes hand-in-hand with Strategy #1, but really think about what big ticket items you might need in the near future. Some we always suggest are:

  • Bikes (we are big fans of Guardian Bikes with the safest brake system on the market, and super cool designs – get $20 OFF using this link and code: WHATMOMSLOVE)
  • Beds – will your child be moving into a big girl/boy bed this year? If so, consider purchasing their new mattress and frame/headboard now (if you have a place to store it of course)
  • Sporting Equipment – Amazon usually has some great Lightning Deals on Basketball nets, swing sets and more
  • Bouncy House – if you have young kids, this is the gift that will pay for itself! These are brilliant for playdates, birthday parties or just for getting out some extra energy. If you’ve ever rented one, you know that it is not cheap, so get your own and use it more than once or twice, and it will more than cover the cost. Our favorite (that can actually fit inside your house if need be!) is the Little Tikes Jump n’ Slide Bouncer which is currently 30% off, under $200!
  • Car Seats – will your child need to move-up car seats this coming year? Have a convertible or booster seat ready! (if you’re unsure…have a read of our Car Seat Safety post which outlines all the latest guidelines) Amazon is having some great deals like 30% off select Britax Car seats (and BOB strollers!)

Strategy #3: Don’t just think about your kids

2 words: Birthday. Parties.

We’re always on the look-out for great deals on some of my favorite birthday party gifts (all of the games on our Best Board Games Gift Guide for instance) – ones which will get a great response from all kids, no matter their specific interests.

If there’s a good deal, we’ll stock up on these – you’ll save some cash and always having gifts on hand will ultimately save you time and stress later.


Strategy #4: Sign up for money saving online resources 

Amazon Prime:

If you don’t already have Amazon Prime, now is the time to try it. You get unlimited 2-day FREE shipping (no minimum order size!) plus fun extras like access to thousands of movies, TV shows, Kindle books and more.

We personally couldn’t live without it, and just by clicking here you can try a FREE 30-day trial (which can even be shared with 4 family members – score!).

Oh, and one more big bonus of having Amazon Prime: you get 30-minute early access to select Amazon Lightning Deals, which can mean the difference between scoring a huge money saver, and well, not.

Ebates:

Another incredible online money-saver we started using this year is Ebates. Now we have to admit, we were totally skeptical about this at first and thought “how can they just give you cash back for shopping online, there must be some catch”. But amazingly, there isn’t!

Ebates gives you a certain percentage cash back if you use their affiliate links to big-name websites like Amazon, Nordstrom, Old Navy, J. Crew and thousands more. Ebates gets a commission for referring you, which they then split with you in the form of cash-back. Total win-win.

It’s 100% free to use and super simple. You can either click on a link to the online retailer of your choice via their website, or you can install the Ebates Cash Back Button on your browser (we have this and it makes it SO easy!) which will pop-up each time you access one of their accepted merchants – then all you do is click the button to activate your cash-back…it doesn’t send you to any other web page, you keep shopping as usual, and the $ earned on your purchase is then automatically put in your Ebates account. You can get your cash-back via PayPal or a mailed check.

We have a couple hundred dollars in our account that we saved this year just from doing the online shopping we would have done anyways! 
Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

Now is a great time to sign-up for Ebates because over the Cyber Week holiday they are increasing their cash back even more, including:

  • Snapfish: 15% cash back
  • Macys: 12% cash back
  • Carters: 10% cash back
  • Nike: 10% cash back
  • Bloomingdales: 10% cash back
  • Gap: 8% cash back
  • Kohls: 8% cash back
  • Lord & Taylor: 8% cash back
  • Toys R Us: 6% cash back
  • Amazon: up to 6% cash back
  • Walmart: 4% cash back

(note: this is not a sponsored message, just something we love and wish we had known about sooner!)
