Mother’s Day is a great opportunity to show your appreciation for the moms in your life. And you can pamper mom without breaking the bank. There are some amazing deals available, no matter what your budget is.
In this column, we hunt down the top deals of the week to help you save some time and money. If you find a great deal in San Diego, be sure and share it with us in the comments or email it to me to have your deal featured in a future column.
It took me a long time to convert to digital books but now that I have, I can’t go back. I absolutely love my Kindle and it makes a fantastic Mother’s Day gift if it’s in your budget. Amazon has a great promotion for Mother’s Day. If you buy a Kindle, you’ll get a $25 Amazon gift card for free. Since you’ll be buying books to put on your Kindle anyway, that’s just like getting a $25 discount!
If you have an Amazon Prime account (free for caregivers or students) this will ship for free by two-day mail so you'll have it before Mother's Day.
If relaxation is more your style, Spa Week gift cards would make a fantastic Mother’s Day gift. Spa Week gift cards are good 365 days a year at fabulous spas all over San Diego and right now they are offering a special Mother’s Day promotion that is good for 10 Percent off all Spa Week gift cards!
If you really want to get on mom’s good side, promise to clean the house for her while she’s at the spa.
