Can anyone buy an AmazonLocal deal? AmazonLocal is a members’ only local deals website, but great news: It’s FREE! So, yes, anyone can buy these deals so long as they become an AmazonLocal member. How? It’s easy. Just follow these steps and you’re on the way to your very own loco-priced local deals:

Step One: Become an AmazonLocal member in one of two ways:

  • Existing Amazon.com account holders: Sign in through your Amazon account, same name, same password.
  • New to Amazon? Simply open an Amazon account. All you need is an e-mail address and a password to get started.

All signed in? Time to set up your AmazonLocal account.

Step Two: Let AmazonLocal know the cities for which you want to receive deals. You can do this by entering either a city or a zip code. AmazonLocal then lets you know what your choices are. Choose your city and add it to your AmazonLocal subscription.

Shazaam! You’re in! That’s all it takes to have you ready to cash in on your very own local deals. AmazonLocal does all the work from here, sending you e-mail deal notifications for your selected areas. All you need to do now is sit back and wait for the deals to come your way.

And, you can sign up for as many deal cities as you want. Going on vacation near an AmazonLocal city? Sign up to access that city’s deals too. Simply remove the city from your subscription when the trip is over.

How do you buy an AmazonLocal Deal? You’ve finally found the first local deal just right for you. What are you waiting for? Buy it! And here’s a few tips to help you out:

  • Check the “Time Left To Purchase” display, found under the “Buy” button. Each deal is a limited time only offer. You can’t wait forever to buy the deal.
  • Check it out before you buy. Time permitting, (see above), do a little research to ensure this is the deal for you. Be in the know before you buy – it’s just a hassle if you change your mind after you purchase a deal.
  • Decision made. Click on the “Buy” button, review your order, and complete your transaction.
  • The deal arrives. AmazonLocal e-mails you a link to your purchased deal voucher as soon as the order is processed.

You’ve now just scored your very own crazy-priced local deal.

A few more tips on buying an AmazonLocal Deal:

  • Read “The Detail” first: Each deal comes with a detailed offer description as well as who is offering the deal. Know your deal before you buy to ensure you know exactly what you are getting.
  • Read “What You Need to Know” second: Each deal also comes with specific terms, including scheduling requirements, locations where it can be used and expiration dates. Save yourself any headaches and know a deal’s limitations before you buy.
  • Oh no! There’s no “Buy” button! So sorry. This deal is either sold out or no longer available.
  • Oops! You changed your mind after purchase. It happens. You might still be able to cancel your order, but you will need to contact AmazonLocal either by phone or e-mail to do this.
  • Not your deal today. There may be prior deals still available. Look at the bottom of the screen for more deal options for your selected city.

How to use an AmazonLocal Voucher: The voucher is how you will access your deal. Once you make a purchase, AmazonLocal e-mails you the link to your specific deal’s voucher. Don’t lose it! But if you do, that’s ok. Go into your AmazonLocal account and click on “Your Vouchers” to find a list of your purchased vouchers.

Once you are ready to use your voucher, print it and take it with you to the service provider. Or, you can access the voucher through a smartphone, Kindle with Special Offers (more on this below), or other mobile device.

Most vouchers come with an expiration date so be aware of this when you purchase as well as when you want to use it.

Boo! My Location isn’t listed at AmazonLocal. Don’t see your city? Don’t give up hope! AmazonLocal continues to add more locations across the U.S. How can you find out when AmazonLocal has added your location? You can subscribe now to local e-mails for your area and as soon as AmazonLocal adds that area, they will begin sending you the deals.

Have a Kindle? Great news! Kindle owners can now purchase AmazonLocal deals direct from their Kindles. You will  need to subscribe to the Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers, though, to activate this feature. Read more about activating AmazonLocal on a Kindle device at AmazonLocal Help.

HauteLook For That Red-Hot Look

Hey Friend,

Just wanted to let you know that I have relaunched my blog at a whole new site, with a whole new look! Check it out, re-bookmark the new site, and follow me over there. Lots of new posts to read, like this post, Wouldn’t You Rather-Be-Shopping?

Hope to see you there!

Link to the new and improved Let’s Get Deals Today Home Page.

Link to HauteLook For That Red-Hot Look‘s new and improved look.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Inspired by The Oscar’s Red Carpet fashions? Looking to “Angelina Jolie” your dress collection? Need a leg up with bargain shopping as your piggy bank just doesn’t quite add up to Red Carpet prices?

Don’t despair! HauteLook to the rescue!

What is HauteLook? HauteLook is a premier members’-only site that offers limited-time sales events for many of the world’s best brands. Its’ team of experts search the world over to find HauteLook members the most exciting brands and products, then offers them at incredible discounts, most often at 50-75% off!

How do you get in on these Red-Hot deals? Become a HauteLook member! It’s free. It only takes a moment of your time to register and be on your the way to your very own Red-Hot looks. Everyone is welcome at HauteLook; there are no commitments or charges for membership. Once you are a member, you will receive daily invitations to preview the latest and greatest HauteLook offers.

What will you find at HauteLook? Just the newest, best merchandise for men, women, kids, home and beauty, all at prices up to 75% off retail. Wow! Who knew you could get a Red Carpet worthy look for as much as 75% off!

HauteLook has five main categories of items and services: Women, Beauty, Home, Kids, and Men. Here’s a sampling of offers you might find in each category on any given day:

HauteLook Women

HauteLook Beauty

HauteLook Home

HauteLook Kids

HauteLook Men

And remember: With HauteLook, you get these Red-Hot looks at 50-75% off!

How do they do that? HauteLook is able to offer these fabulous prices through partnerships with fashion and lifestyle brands, suppliers, and service providers. These partnerships enable HauteLook to give its members insider access to the highest quality merchandise and the latest styles at deeply discounted prices.

How does a HauteLook Sales Event work? First, watch for your early morning e-mail invitation announcing the day’s sales event. Or, you can also check “Upcoming Sale Events” for a preview of soon to arrive brands and events, located at the bottom of the home page and each category page.

Then, starting at 8:00am Pacific Time, the “door” is open for business! Just jump on your computer, move that mouse around, click on your fabulous item, and you are off to a Red-Hot deal! Typically HauteLook sales events that start Monday through Thursday run for 48 hours; Friday or Saturday events run until Monday morning. But don’t wait until the last minute! Many items sell out early. These prices are just that good!

Note: Because inventory is offered at such great prices, and are often in high demand, you will only be able to hold an item in your shopping basket for 15 minutes. During that time, no one can add it to their cart. But you may want to act quickly: after an item times out, it returns to inventory. You can add it back into your cart if it is still available by clicking “Add It Again,” though if you really want it, you may not want to take that chance!

Once a sale event is over, that’s it! Since these items are limited inventory, they don’t typically come back up for purchase.

HauteLook

Oh NO! Say it ain’t so! My item’s on hold? Each sales event has a set inventory for sale. When the last available item is placed into someone’s shopping cart, but not yet purchased, that item is placed on hold. If an item is in a shopping cart with no activity for fifteen minutes, it is then “released” back for purchase. So if you really covet that item on hold, just sit tight and wait. It might just become available again.

What’s a HauteLook Independent Sales Event? It’s another way that HauteLook offers its’ members exclusive brands and products at awesome discounts. If you see a “HauteLook Independent Sale Event” label next to an event or product, it means that this item is provided from a carefully chosen supplier, not from the brand itself. Have no fear though! These items and suppliers have been extensively researched to ensure authenticity. So you can rest assured that you are getting the real deal!

Where does HauteLook ship? Currently United States and Canada, but keep checking back. They are looking into how to better serve international customers.

What if your Red-Hot look just isn’t so “Red-Hot” on you? No worries! With HauteLook’s return policy, most items (apparel, footwear and accessories) are returnable within 21 days of shipping. You have two return options:

  • Return for store credit, return shipping fee waived.
  • Return for refund, a return shipping fee of $5.95 deducted from your refund amount. Note: Canadian residents’ refunds have a $10.95 deduction.

Some items are final sales, including Cosmetics & Beauty, Hosiery, Intimates, Swimwear, Vintage, Home Goods, and any “blowout” events marked as final sale.

Need a Red-Hot gift? Then look no further than a HauteLook eGift card. It can be used to purchase almost anything HauteLook offers. eGift cards are available for $25, $50, $75, $100, $250, and $500. And, these eGift cards don’t expire!

HauteLook eGift

Share the savings! Invite a friend to join HauteLook and you get $10 credit once they complete their first purchase. Share the excitement of HauteLook with everyone. Better yet: ask me to send you an invite and help me get $10 too!

HauteLook Invite

Want HauteLook on the go? Download the free HauteLook Mobile App and never miss your favorite brand sales event again! Be able to browse and buy no matter where you are. Apps are available for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.

5. Are you the “Hostess with the Mostest?” Then Party On! Create Oscar fun of your own and have your friends “compete” for “Oscars.” This can be a fun, inexpensive way to be the “hostess with the mostest” on Oscar night. You can either pick up inexpensive “Oscar” prizes at a local discount store or make your own. And to help you get planning, here’s two party ideas that are sure to keep your guests entertained:

  • Game on! Challenge your guests to make their own Oscar winner picks. Use the fun MyPicks form to create your own ballot or the pre-made Oscar 2012 Ballot; distribute it as your guests arrive and have each one complete their own ballot. At the end of the evening, award an “Oscar” to the most accurate Red Carpet savvy guest!

  • And the Oscar goes to: Create your own list of Oscar categories, complete with space to nominate a guest for each “best of” category. Throughout the evening, announce award winners, complete with an “Oscar.” Here’s a few ideas to start your own Oscar Awards program:
    • Best Dressed – Best Strut – Best Bling: Have a “cat-walk” just like the Red-Carpet! Then award an Oscar to the “Best” in each category.
    • Best Predictions: Pick five top categories and take a quick poll right before the winner is announced. Treat the winner(s) with an Oscar.
    • Best “Acceptance” Speech: Have everyone offer up their best Oscar Acceptance speech.
    • Best Dessert: Ask everyone to bring a special dessert and have a taste-testing “pre-Oscar” event. Will it be “death by chocolate”  or “sunshine salad” for this year’s best tasty treat?

Woot! Has a Daily Deal for You!

Hey Friend,

Just wanted to let you know that I have relaunched my blog at a whole new site, with a whole new look! Check it out, re-bookmark the new site, and follow me over there. Lots of new posts to read, like this post, Totsy – Flash Sales for Families.

Hope to see you there!

Link to Woot! Has a Daily Deal for You!‘s new and improved look.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Define Woot: An interjection similar to “Woohoo!” often used to express joy or excitement. Define Woot!: A website through which shoppers express extreme joy and excitement on getting a great deal!

What is Woot!? Woot! is a “deal of the day” online discount retailer. Each day Woot! offers one discounted product until it is sold out. Once sold out, the deal of the day is over. At midnight central standard time, a new discounted product starts the new day, and the previous deal is no longer available. Much like Cinderella, when the clock strikes midnight, that item is gone!

Mixed in with the daily deals are large doses of quirkiness, wittiness, and fun, with touches of sarcasm sprinkled about. Just reading the Woot website can be pure entertainment! Product descriptions commonly mock the product, the customer, or Woot itself. Sarcasm aside, Woot! offers seriously good daily deals!

Let’s meet the Woot! Family of One Day, One Deal websites:

  • Woot! The original One Day, One Deal website. Today it’s an iPod Touch; yesterday was a Playstation controller; tomorrow might be a laptop computer. Most items at Woot! tend to be electronic gadgetry.

  • shirt.Woot!: The daily tee-shirt deals at shirt.Woot! feature exclusive, original and fun designs that you can’t get anywhere else. Woot tees are also Made in the USA. Go check them out! Got your own tee-shirt design? Enter it in The Derby (see below).

  • home.Woot!: Who can’t use home goods at great prices? Woot’s purpose at “home” is to bring you brand-name decor, linens, appliances, cookware, and more at the lowest prices on the web.

  • kids.Woot!: Got kids, need deals! Kids are expensive! Follow kids.Woot! for daily deals on kids’s stuff priced for a shoe-string budget. The daily “stuff” can be anything from carseats to apparel to educational toys & games to non-educational toys & games. All those “must haves” and some “not-so-must-haves” for the kids in your life.

  • wine.Woot!Oenophiles celebrate with wine.Woot! Seven days a week, wine.woot! uncorks a sweet new wine deal from a known winery or possibly a deal on a wine-related product. And, to quote Woot’s website: “on the rare occasion the site features some off-brand rotgut.” Wait a minute: is that Woot’s sarcasm again?

How does Woot! work? Create your account with Woot and you are good to go with all Woot sites. Check back daily with each family member and discover a new deal. Sometimes you will find yourself an awesome deal; other times you will find yourself entertained!

A few more “Wootisms” to help you navigate this witty wonderland of daily deals:

Feeling Brave? Buy a Bag of Crap! A Bag of Crap is a blind grab bag containing at least three undisclosed “crappy” items. The value and quality of these items are not guaranteed, but sometimes expensive items are included. So is the brown lunch bag! Bags of Crap are very popular, often selling out within minutes of being posted. So if you see a Bag of Crap and are feeling lucky, grab it! It won’t last.

The “I Want One” button keeps bouncing around! What’s up? The bouncing “I Want One” is Woot’s way of signalling you that sellout is fast approaching. Buy your item now if you really want it!

Are you seeing flashing orange lights? It’s a Woot-off!  These orange flashing lights mean Woot is in “Woot-off” mode. During a Woot-off, Woot launches a new product sale immediately upon selling out of the current product. When the orange lights disappear, the Woot-off is over and normal 24-hour selling operations resume.

Fancy yourself a tee-shirt designer? Then enter The Derby!  You can design and submit your own tee-shirt ideas to The Derby, Woot’s weekly theme-based design competition. Each week Woot posts these tee-shirt designs for public vote. The three most popular designs are then produced and sold at shirt.Woot! A Woot salute to the artist in you!

Can you really have Happy Hour at Woot? Yes. On occasion Woot makes it’s own Happy Hour, with one-hour only product specials. But to get “in” on a Woot Happy Hour, you need to follow them on Twitter.

Want to spread the word about a great deal? Want to comment on someone else’s deal? Then join everyone at deals.Woot!, where wooters share the latest on “all things cheap.”

A side to the sarcasm: For those only interested in serious details, official information about the product is always listed below the Woot-written description. Woot also recommends you do your own product research and post your opinions on their User Community Forums. Woot staff tags the most useful posts and features them at the top of the forum.

Are you now ready to Woot? Have you already Wooted a great deal? Tell us in the Comments Section below your best “Woot!” deal!
