In our latest release, we are bringing you even more ways to save at some of your favorite retailers!

KOHL’S

We are excited to announce the addition of Kohl’s to our family of in-store retailers! Premium and Extreme members can now find Kohl’s on their Markdowns by Store page, Popular Searches feed, Today’s Markdowns feed, and also the Inventory Checker.

When it comes to Kohl’s, every store nationwide has the same pickup price for a particular item, so the Kohl’s Inventory Checker will display pickup prices and quantities at stores near you.

Browse Kohl’s Markdowns by Store here!

PICK UP IN-STORE

In addition to Kohl’s, Target and Dollar General will now have an in-store pick up option, as well! We’ve added the convenient “Order for Pickup” link to their Markdowns by Store page and Inventory Checkers for Premium and Extreme members. You will be able to order online for the discounted price, apply any coupons you may have, and then pick up the items at your local store the same day. Kohl’s, Target, and Dollar General join our existing in-store pick up retailers: Walmart, Lowe’s, and Home Depot.

Not only do these stores offer same day pick up, but many make pick up even easier with a contactless drive-up option. Simply pull up to the designated spot, follow the store’s prompts, and they will bring your items out for you. This feature can vary by retailer and by location.

Just scan any barcode to pull up an item’s BrickSeek Snapshot page, which lists all available online offers for that product. An item’s Snapshot page also includes useful info to help you price compare across retailers, such as that item’s deal history and reviews. From the Snapshot page, logged in members can also easily check the in-store availability of that item at retailers nearby.

If you have a free Basic BrickSeek membership, you can access even more app features:

  • Create & Manage Online Deal Alerts – It’s now easier than ever to create and manage your own customizable Online Deal Alerts.

Premium and Extreme members will have even more app functionality available to them:

  • Access to all “Members Area” feeds, functions, and tools available to each respective membership level

The Power of Push Notifications

Don’t forget that Extreme members are the first to see new deals posted on BrickSeek. They have exclusive access to those new deals for a short period of time before the deal is released to Premium members and then eventually to all users. This means that Extreme and Premium members are also the first to receive Online Deal Alerts, and now that you will be notified of new Alerts via push notifications, Premium and Extreme members will be getting more value out of their memberships than ever before.

Consider upgrading to Premium or Extreme today to get the most out of this huge membership benefit!

You already know that BrickSeek is your first stop for discovering all the latest amazing deals from the nation’s top retailers. As we’ve done in years past, we will once again be scouting out and curating the best Black Friday deals in real-time, so that we can be your first stop for all of your holiday shopping, too!

Black Friday Deals Feed

The Black Friday deals feed will consist of all online deals, making it super easy for you to snag that perfect gift for super cheap, without even having to leave the house! All of our retailers that currently offer online deals will be included in the Black Friday deals feed, with deal categories ranging from electronics to home goods, toys to tires!

Check the Black Friday deals feed throughout the day on Black Friday and the entire shopping weekend to be the first to snag all the newest deals. Then continue checking back frequently as the feed morphs into the Cyber Monday deals feed and then the Holiday Shopping deals feed for the remainder of the year. 

Don’t Forget Your Online Alerts!

DON’T FORGET to leverage the power of your Online Deal Alerts to be notified first about every deal we find in your selected categories! Online Deal Alerts allow you to select product categories that you want us to monitor for you, and when we detect a deal on an item in that category, we email you so that you’re the first to know. These deals are often insanely good and sell out quickly, so make sure you jump on them right away. You can click here to learn all about Online Deal Alerts, how to set them up, and how to leverage them effectively to get the most value out of your BrickSeek membership.

Leverage the Power of Your Membership

Keep in mind that Extreme members are the first to see new deals posted on BrickSeek. They have exclusive access to those new deals for a short period of time before the deal is released to Premium members and then eventually to all users. This means that Extreme and Premium members are also the first to receive Online Deal Alerts, and this head start can be critical in securing a deal. If you’re considering upgrading to one of our paid memberships, this holiday season is the perfect time to do so!

We’re rolling out our newest feature to help you save even more! You can now browse a whole new category of deals — items that are eligible for in-store pickup!

In our latest bid to save you even more time and money, our system now finds amazing deals near you at Walmart, Lowe’s, and Home Depot that are eligible for in-store pickup! Visit the Markdowns by Store feed for one of your local stores, and select the “Pickup” filter option to see all the deals within that store that are available for in-store pickup!

Just order online at the discounted price, wait for your pickup confirmation email, and then head to your local store to pick up your items! No more scavenging through every aisle trying to find your deal — now you can have it pulled and waiting for you when you walk in the door.

As always, we are finding all the best new ways to save and bringing them to you first! Save more now than ever with BrickSeek and our newest in-store Pickup feature!


Three more new retailers…. Cabela’s, Academy Sports, and Sam’s Club!

ONCE AGAIN, we have been very busy lately in the lab, even while balancing all of the Little Bricks Charity fundraising and your LEGO donations! We’re happy to announce that we’re adding another three new retailers to BrickSeek to help bring you more ways to save money!

This will again be a continued effort and focus to work with additional online retailers, so that everyone can be prepared to take advantage of the best online deals during the holidays and beyond. We all know how crazy Black Friday and the holidays were in 2020, and we have no reason to think that will calm down in 2021. We’re prepared to increase the categories supported with our Online Deal Alerts feature.

Here are the three newest retailers that you’ll see on our BrickSeek.com/deals page and Online Markdown Feed (Extreme members):

Sam’s Club

This one has been a major request by users, and now here we are! These deals are specific to online deals for now, and we’ve already seen some “amazing” deals detected by the system, so have those Online Deal Alerts created!

Academy Sports

Some of you may not have an Academy Sports local to you, but now you’ll be able to score deals from anywhere in the country with these online deals!

Cabela’s

Cabela’s isn’t known for being as aggressive with clearance markdowns, so when our system does find a deal worthy of posting, they should be good ones! Maybe we’ll get lucky and find some Bargain Cave worthy deals?

The Walmart Black Friday ad is always highly anticipated each year, due to their steep discounts and amazing doorbuster deals. In recent years, Walmart has been pushing more of its Black Friday deals online; and this year will be their biggest online offering to date, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Walmart has joined other brick-and-mortar retailers like Target and Best Buy and announced that their stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day. All Walmart stores will be open the next day on Black Friday; and just like in years past, you can expect to see great deals at that time. But this year, Walmart is also holding three separate “Black Friday Deals for Days” events in the weeks leading up to the actual Black Friday holiday, offering almost a full month of amazing deals and discounts. 


The first Black Friday Deals for Days sale begins online at Walmart.com on November 4 at 7PM EST. In-store deals will become available a few days later on November 7, starting at 5AM local time. According to Walmart’s announcement, “This reinvented Black Friday experience will offer customers the retailer’s best prices of the season on the most sought-after items on 2020 holiday wish lists during three separate savings events across the month of November. Each savings event will begin online at Walmart.com and continue in Walmart stores. And new this year, customers will have the option to pick up their online Black Friday order through Walmart’s contact-free curbside pickup service.”

The second Black Friday Deals for Days event starts online at Walmart.com at 7PM EST on November 11. Additional online deals will be introduced on November 14 at midnight EST, with new in-store deals dropping at 5AM local time.

The third event begins online on November 25 at 7PM EST. It will then merge into Walmart’s official Black Friday offerings on the holiday itself, November 27. Online deals will become available at midnight EST and in-store at 5AM local time. (We’re still waiting to get a sneak peek at the ad for this third Black Friday event.)


So far, we’ve seen some great deals, including 50% off Instant Pots, $99 AirPods (Gen 2), and a 55” TCL television for only $148!

Make sure to keep up with all of the Black Friday deals this holiday season by bookmarking out Black Friday page and checking it often for the latest best deals!

A few months ago, we introduced our Small Business Partnership Program and began collaborating with online businesses across the country in an effort to bring new deal content to you, as well as to help drive traffic to some fellow online companies.

Trendee Boutique offers on-trend homeware, jewelry, accessories, kids/ baby and health/ fitness items for everyone in your family. They are a small, family-run business whose goal is to constantly curate handy, nifty, cute, make-life-easier products at an affordable price. If you can save instead of splurging, without compromising on quality, then why not?! As a family-owned business and knowing that so many are struggling right now due to the pandemic, Trendee donates a portion of all their sales to Feeding America. Their hope is that this small gesture on their part helps any family that needs it and inspires others to pay it forward, as well.


At Trendee, when we are curating items to add to our store, we are always thinking about style, functionality, and versatility. 

With the uncertainty facing all of us due to the pandemic, we know that it is more important now than ever for families to save. As a small family-owned business, we know what it means to save, and we know what it means to have every purchase go a long way. 

When we are curating items for our shop, we often find ourselves asking, “Can I use this item in more than one way, or can I style this item more than one way?” If the answer is yes, then we add the item to our online boutique so we can provide it to our customers. 

For example, the diaper bags we offer can also be used as a backpack for toddlers, a travel backpack, a work laptop bag, and even a camera bag! We have had our customers tell us no matter how they use it, they love it because of the versatility and functionality that it offers. Plus it’s waterproof and UV resistant, so it won’t fade over time and helps ensure the longevity of the bag! 

The Bambina Backpack Diaper Bag

The jewelry pieces, accessories, and t-shirts that we offer are affordable and versatile enough to style in so many different ways. You can stack our jewelry pieces if you want to dress up an outfit for date night or wear one of the pieces on its own for a more casual look. Our graphic tees are comfy enough to lounge around in at home but also great to pair with jeans, a cute pair of boots, and some accessories for a night out on the town. 

www.trendeeboutique.com

As a family-owned and operated small business, we are committed to bringing you the best offer possible; and by working with BrickSeek, we are able to do that.

In addition to our current Fall Sale which already offers 15-20% off sitewide, BrickSeek members can use the code BRICKSEEK to get an additional 40% off your total purchase price through November 4! Shipping is free on orders over $49.

One of the most anticipated online shopping events of the year is Amazon Prime Day, and it usually falls around the middle of July. This year, however, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Prime Day has been postponed for months. But great news! Prime Day will begin tonight, October 13 at 12am PT, and will run through October 14. 


On Prime Day, you can take advantage of thousands of deals, from kitchen appliances to diapers to electronics. As the name suggests, many of the best deals on Prime Day are reserved for Prime members. If you’ve got an existing Prime membership, you’re already set to take full advantage of this sale event, including Lightning Deals, which offer the best discounts. If you’re not a Prime member yet, you can sign up today for a 30-day free trial of Prime, which at this point will overlap with Prime Day, and allow you full access to all deals.

Make sure to bookmark the Amazon Deal Page, and check it frequently on Prime Day so that you don’t miss any of the great ways to save.

And don’t forget to look for competing sales at other major retailers on Prime Day, as well.  Stores like Walmart and Target will offer big discounts of their own in an attempt to bring your business their way. Check out our blog post here to find out how you can sometimes save even more by shopping at one of these competitors!

BrickSeek has once again partnered with WFSB for their Money Monday series, where we discussed Amazon Prime Day and how to get the best deals. Check us out below!

September is Baby Safety Month, and that means that Target’s ever popular Car Seat Trade-in Event is back!

Photo credit: Target.com

Target has once again partnered with Waste Management to bring this event to almost all of their 1800+ locations. The Car Seat Trade In Event begins on September 13th and runs through the 26th. Target will accept and recycle all types of car seats, including infant seats, convertible seats, car seat bases, harness or booster car seats and car seats that are expired or damaged. Materials from the old car seats will be recycled by Waste Management.

Guests who trade in their old car seats will receive a 20% off coupon toward a new car seat, car seat base, travel system, stroller or select baby home gear. Select baby home gear includes play yards, high chairs, swings, rockers and bouncers. Coupons can be applied to both in-store and online purchases and are valid through October 3, 2020.

This year, there is a new requirement to participate in the Car Seat Trade-In Event. Guests must be enrolled in Target Circle to participate in the trade-in and receive a coupon. Scan sheets will be placed on car seat drop-off boxes for guests to scan from their mobile device to add the 20% coupon into their Circle. Guests will only be able to scan one coupon per Circle account, and the coupon can be combined with other item offers.

Even if you don’t need a coupon for baby gear, this is a great way to recycle your old seats! Do you plan to trade in a seat this year? What will you use your 20% off coupon on? Let us know in the comments below!

We recently partnered up with SheFinds (@shefinds) to highlight three easy ways to save on your BTS shopping this school year! Check out these great money saving tips in our latest video collab!


As schools across the nation gear up to reopen both physically and virtually, parents are faced with the challenge of finding good back-to-school deals and savings in the midst of a global pandemic. There are several ways to save on everything back-to-school this year, whether your little ones will be learning from home or from the classroom.

General School Supplies
Pencils, pens, markers, crayons, erasers, notebooks, glue, scissors, staplers, binders, and backpacks.  It’s all going to go on sale at some point this month. Look for steep discounts on the essentials, such as crayons for as low as a quarter a box, pencils for a penny, or glue for less than ten cents. Check out the first page of your local sales circulars to find the best markdowns, and don’t forget that school supplies are something that you will oftentimes find cheaper at an office supply store, rather than a big box retailer.

For students that will be going back to school virtually, there are still plenty of savings to be found on online learning resources, too!

Laptops
Although it is not the absolute best time of year to buy a laptop (we usually see the best deals around the holidays and shortly thereafter), back-to-school season is the second best time to buy a laptop if you need one. The big box stores, online retailers like Amazon and B&H Photo, as well as the brands themselves like Dell and HP, will offer decent savings on laptops, usually round 10% and sometimes even more. Don’t forget to check your local online yard sale groups, as well as sites like Facebook Marketplace and OfferUp, to find great deals on used laptops, desktops, and tablets right in your local area!

Epic!
Epic! is the #1 children’s digital library for kids 12 and under, offering access to over 35,000 books for kids, plus learning videos, reading quizzes and more. It’s an unlimited reading library your child can take anywhere! It also has an awesome read-to-me feature for little ones who are still learning to read.
Ages: 2-12
Cost: one-month free trial, then $7.99/month
Get it for: iOS or Android
