The Boys in the Boat (Kindle Edition): Just $2.99!

boysboatThe Boys in the Boat is the amazing true story of the University of Washington crew team who compete in the 1936 Berlin Olympics. It is also a New York Times Bestseller and currently has an average 5 STAR ratings after over 3,000 customer reviews! It also just so happens to be my book club’s October pick and I couldn’t be more excited to read it! I am seeing that many are comparing it to one of my all-time favorite books EVER, Unbroken (currently selling for $7.99, Kindle Edition; Amazon).

Right now, the Kindle edition of the book is just $2.99 on Amazon – that’s a savings of 82% off the regular retail price for the print edition. By way of comparison, I found the print edition selling for $9.99 at Costco last week. I already snagged my copy and am looking forward to starting it!

freekindle

Remember, you don’t have to have a Kindle to take advantage of deals like these. You can download the free Kindle app to your mobile device or computer! (Just look for the button like the one pictured above halfway down the right side of the product screen.)

Prices on Amazon can (and do!) change at any time and without warning. I do not anticipate that this price will stick around too long. Head to Amazon now if you’re interested.

By the way, looking for some good books to read? Here are some reviews of books I’ve read in the last few years. (Warning: I tend to be picky. And critical.)

And if you’ve read this book – what did you think? (Please though, no spoilers. Thanks!)

Thanks, Keri!

Old Navy: Save up to 50% off Everything + Extra 20% off (Today Only)

laboroflove

Old Navy is having an awesome “Labor of Love” sale – but it’s good through today only. Save up to 50% off everything, PLUS, save an extra 20% at checkout (online only). The extra 20% will come off automatically; there is no coupon code to enter. It also appears that the 20% off is coming off site-wide, including sale and clearance merchandise!

Here are a few best bets I found:

womenshorts

 

Women’s Shorts: I found prices as low as $5.99! And, don’t forget when you add them to your cart the price drops another 20%:

20discountThis means that $5.99 pair of shorts? Is now just $4.79. That’s a whopping 81% off the regular retail price! Score!

jerseydressGirls’ Jersey Dresses: $9.00 (regularly $17.94). After the 20% added discount at checkout, you’d pay just $7.20 (a 60% savings off the regular retail price!)

uniformsStill need some uniforms? If so, stock up at Old Navy! I found girls’ jumpers and uniform skorts for $8.50 each (reg. $16.94). The price drops to just $6.80 after the sale.

pulloversMen’s Jersey Pullovers: $15 (reg. $22.94). These would work out to just $12 after the 20% off discount.

boyshortsBoys’ Shorts start at just $3.97! This works out to $3.18 after the discount. Perfect for stocking up for soccer season or gym class!

Of course, there are lots more where this came from. While the up to 50% off sale is happening both in-stores and online, the extra 20% discount is only good online and today only. Shipping is free on orders of $50 or more, otherwise you’re looking at shipping costing you about $7 (for 3-5 business days).

Head to Old Navy to see what you can find. (And of course, make sure to tell us about your awesome scores!)
