[Shopaholic] 'Watching' for Deals

On Wednesday, I mentioned I've been hunting for a new watch.  I posted a few Nixon watches I've been loving, and a handful of you all commented on your love for the tortoise shell 'Time Teller' watch.  Funny enough, this was the Husband's favorite too (he doesn't like rose gold or regular gold). 

 
Nixon Time Teller Watch - Tilly's $149.99

I was trying to reason that $149.99 for a watch (with Free Shipping - Tilly's ships for free on purchases over $99) was a great deal and I should just treat myself, because it's been a tough month. But since I've already treated myself to white AG Stevies, a splendid top, replaced our broken coffee maker, and ordered a yogitoes mat... I didn't think I should.


I decided to check Ebates for any coupon codes worth my while and lo and behold, 20% Off one item with code Summer11.  This was awesome.  Now the watch was only $119.99, and I found some boardshorts for Husband for $30 (I added them to my cart second to make sure the 20% Off would reflect on the watch)... I basically was able to get his shorts free (and they were a must buy since his old pairs no longer fit - woohoo on the shrinking waistline Hubs!), since my new total was a penny under the original price of the watch $149.98.

Also, since I shopped through Ebates, I got 4.5% cash back on my order.


I'll post a review when the watch arrives, but if you were looking for a reason deal to get one for yourself here it is!  Or if tortoise isn't your style, but white acetate is, check out this version for the same price....

(I LURVE this watch, but I'm sorta over the ubiquitous white ceramic watch trend)

  9. Thanks girls! So funny, how men don't care for gold or any variations.... can't wait to finally start wearing a watch again! Even more excited that everyone thinks it's awesome (yes, peer influence makes me like things more - I'm easy like that)

  13. Great watch. I love tortoise. Way to look for a deal. I always do, even when I think there's no way I'll find one. There's often *something* out there.
