7 Sales to Check Out (Including $150 off KitchenAid Mixer)

Fourth of July home skincare and beauty sales

Kicking off this holiday weekend with some of the top sales I’ve been shopping (home goods heavy as we just moved), and I’ll be back to share some fashion ones this weekend!

1. KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer

The deal: Up to $150 off depending on color! Accessories sold separately are also on sale.

OH my goodness I’m beyond excited about this one! After researching all the different KitchenAid mixers and colors, I’ve had the Artisan on my wishlist for months waiting for a good deal (usually discounts are only on discontinued colors or refurbished models). I couldn’t get the extra 20% off discount at BBB because they didn’t have the color I wanted, but am still happy with the $100 off I got.

If you’re debating between the lower priced Classic mixer (also on sale!) vs. the Artisan, I decided on the latter mainly due to the higher powered motor (recommended especially if you plan on making bread or bun dough), and slightly bigger capacity with a handle on the mixing bowl. As some of you know my mom is a very avid cook / baker, and uses hers religiously along with the pasta making attachment (sold separately).

Here’s a few retailers with the KitchenAid Artisan on sale:

    • Bed, Bath & Beyond – UPDATE: Stackable with 20% off coupon for a total of over $150 off! Currently still avail. in red, silver, aqua, green apple and guava (and a few more if you search by local store). Easiest to apply this deal on a desktop browser. If it’s your first time on their website, enter your email into their pop-up window for the 20% off coupon (or open this link in a new private browser window to get the pop-up). Then all you need to do at checkout is click “Apply Coupons” on the upper right and enter that same email address to pull up the 20% off offer. Free ship or curbside pickup. Pick up our everyday non-stick pan set on sale and this universally sized pot lid with steam holes that we use with them – some of my kitchen must-haves!
    • Macy’s – July 13th deal of the day, priced at $236 in red or silver!
    • Kohl’s – 3 colors which earn Kohl’s cash to spend later. Free ship or store pickup.
    • Best Buy – lots of colors incl. Milkshake + free shipping (quicker than C&B) or store pickup at a lot of locations.
    • Crate & Barrel – I had ordered mine here as they had more colors, incl. my personal favorites Milkshake and Toffee delight (both very pretty in person) but note that some colors are now on backorder. Free ship or curbside pickup.
    • Kitchenaid.com – free ship.
2. Crate & Barrel

The deal: up to 30% off (ends 7/6) or use SAVE15 for 15% items not on sale.

  • Easy clean circle placemats (brighter colors on clearance) with free ship – Never thought I’d rave about placemats, but these have been one of my favorite, practical kitchen finds that we use daily. They’re nice quality with a pebbled texture finish on one side and cotton lining on the other, and are truly easy to wipe clean with a slightly damp cloth! I’ve also seen these easy care rectangular placemats in person, and they’re made of a very similar material and the colors look versatile.
  • 2 or 3 tier fruit stand – We have the 2-tier one in copper and really love it. It also comes in “gold” (a little more yellow toned than copper) and the lower-priced “iron,” which I thought looked pretty nice esp on darker countertops! No free ship on this one sadly but you can do curbside pickup! And if you’re doing store pickup, I’d also recommend this Allclad oven mitt for fellow home cooks tired of burning themselves through flimsy thin potholders.
  • Mini food processor – I got this to replace our very old one for making pesto, ginger scallion sauce, “frozen yogurts” & much more!

3. M.Gemi

The deal: Semi-annual sale (ends 7/5) with free ship & return ship on all orders.

Note: semi-annual sale returns will be refunded in the form of an e-gift card only. Since that’s not ideal, I was able to get code JEAN60 for $60 off your first order on non-sale items, which should be refundable via original payment methods. My top 2 picks eligible for the $60 off code are:
  • The updated Cerchio leather sneaker (my review of the older version) – I got to try these on, and wow, they’re fantastic with a MUCH lighter weight sole than the older version I have! Colors and sizes are selling quickly but I’m bookmarking this hoping they’ll restock.
  • The leather Felize (or Pastoso) – a classic staple in my closet for many years now. See them on me.
4. SkinStore

The deal: 25% off or more on tons of popular skincare brands! Note: some brands require a discount code JULY4, while others have the promo automatically applied.

Shop all sale items here. Sale includes popular brands like:

5. My Favorite Everyday Facial Sunscreen

The deal: 20% off + free ship. (Update: sale just ended)

Last summer I shared this blog post on my favorite facial sunscreens, and my everyday go-to has continued to be EltaMD UV Clear SPF 46 untinted (pls read my review post) so this is perfect timing to stock up for summer.

I usually order this from Dermstore, but Amazon also sells it here at the same sale price with free ship. I was told that Amazon has become an authorized retailer of EltaMD, and if you sort the Amazon reviews by most recent, they seem to be more positive than from prior years.

Summersalt swim top sz 2 + bottoms sz 2 c/o (also in an adorable 1 piece starting in sz 0; use code JEANWANG10 for 10% off), wired twist headband + straw circle bag

6. Pottery Barn

The deal: Buy more, save more up to 25% off full priced items w/ code SAVEMORE (Update: Sale just ended)

Outside of the above promo, many items are temporarily marked down including certain fabrics on upholstered furniture. I noticed since the more compact Buchanan sofa (I like the one with reversible chaise) has been in my cart after testing it out in-person as a cushy sofa for smaller spaces. This comes in either a square arm or roll arm style. We had narrowed fabric swatches down to their durable-feeling chenille basketweave pebble (a medium taupe), and I just noticed that fabric is marked down 30% off, making it one of the most affordable sofas available at PB (not eligible for additional discounts).

If you prefer a firmer sofa, their Cameron line -including the Cameron sleeper sofa with reversible chaise– is also smaller space friendly with additional features, and is eligible for the buy more, save more discount! While testing this out I noticed Cameron also has a slightly less deep seating area (2″ less deep than the Buchanan) which I personally liked as someone with shorter legs. The Cameron folds out into a queen sized sleeper sofa and has a storage ottoman as part of the chaise, and comes in a roll, slope, or square arm style (each priced differently). Be sure to double check the description, since some of the Cameron styles offer the sleeper & storage feature and some don’t!

7. Saint Laurent clutches + bags

Update: I have recently learned that unfortunately, for US shoppers there will be additional import duty tax fees imposed by US customs on orders from international retailers exceeding $800. These duties are imposed by customs upon delivery of the items. I’m not sure when this went into effect, as it wasn’t the case when I ordered from this retailer several times last year and wish I knew of this sooner (I was told Ssense still covers duties on orders less than $800). 

The deal: A few select, gorgeous and classic Saint Laurent items on sale with free international ship (over certain order thresholds) + free return shipping from the US. I’ve always had positive experiences ordering and returning in the past with this Canada-based retailer SSENSE.

Wanted to highlight these classics on sale:

    Hi Jean! I got the YSL pebbled WOC on the ssense site and it’s my first luxury bag purchase. I was wondering if you could share how you care for your WOC? I’ve read some comments online where people have experienced peeling on their bag. Not sure if this has happened to you. I’d really appreciate any tips on how to care for the bag. Thanks! 🙂

      Hi Lynne, sorry it’s taken me a bit to respond! That is such a great choice for your first luxury bag purchase. I’ve found mine to be very low maintenance, at least comparatively. If I do get anything on it I just polish it off with a very, very slightly damp white cloth or tshirt and I haven’t experienced any peeling with any of my YSL products. I hope this helps xx

    Yay for new Kitchen Aid mixers!! I’ve had my previous one for 20 years since college (wow!) but the motor is starting to go. Excited to see this sale and snagged the Toffee Delight color. 🙂 Love how it’s akin to copper but more matte and less maintenance!! Thanks Jean!

    I wasn’t able to apply the additional 20% b&b coupon, the cart throws an error saying coupon cannot be combined with this sale item 🙂

      Hi Cat – hmm I just tested it again and it works. Are you using the 20% off coupon that you get from the website pop-up and following the steps of clicking “Apply Coupons” at the first step of checkout on the right hand side? The 20% off that it pulls up using this method works on the red kitchenaid for me (didn’t test the other colors).

        Ahhh my mistake! I was signed in and I had a 20% off single item offer. For some reason any of those or mailer offers will not work. Only the one from the pop up will! 😉 thank you!

      Hi Yuji – I listed Bed Bath & Beyond under the KitchenAid mixer section, as one of the retailers offering the $100 off with free shipping.

      They actually have a bunch of other deals going on for 4th of July (if you go to their homepage) but I was just pointing out the KitchenAid sale there!

  9. The face massaging thing is so tempting! I just finally got a finger massager – yup, it’s a thing! For arthritic dinosaurs! But it’s amazing! Also just found out Biossance has made an SPF 30 zinc based sunscreen, no titanium dioxide, EWG verified, cruelty free according to Leaping Bunny website, with squalane. Expensive as hell. 30 USD for an amount that makes the ladies in their promo video look like giants. I know squalane is their thing but at that price I’d rather they skip the squalane and make a tube large enough to last more than one summer weekend. Elta MD is not Leaping Bunny cruelty free. My Elta MD tube contains titanium dioxide and I’m trying to find a sunblock that is zinc oxide only after a reader I think here on a previous post said titanium dioxide kills reefs. Will be posting about all of these things in more detail soon.
