One reason it’s stupid to go in-store to shop this week (or the next few weeks) is that you can actually get some better deals online. And two of my favorite online shopping sites, ASOS and Piperlime, are offering 20% off at checkout with special codes. At Piperlime, be sure to get everything you want in one order because you can only use the code TWENTY once! Also, it doesn’t apply to gift wrapping, gift cards or the following brands: Frye, Hunter, Rag & Bone, Fossil, Stuart Weitzman and The North Face. But that does mean you can get those Sorel Tofino™ or Joan of Arctic™ boots you’ve been pining for (like I have) at 20% off of $140. I’m actually going to order Sporto’s equally cool version of the Tofino™: The Wendy. (I need a good pair of snow boots because when you’re a TV reporter, you never know how many hours you’ll be reporting in a snowstorm for!) It’s priced at $89.95 at DSW, and you can get $15 off with the code CYBER and free shipping with the code SHIPR. (You do have to become a “Rewards Member,” but that’s free. And the more you shop, the closer you get to freebies.) There are fewer restrictions at ASOS: You can use the codes HAPPYBLACKFRIDAY or BLACKFRIDAY2011 multiple times–even on sale items; orders just cannot exceed $890. Both ASOS and Piperlime offer free shipping on orders and returns. So shop now and have second thoughts later, as all the deals expire at 11:59 p.m. Monday.
