Don’t feel like braving the crowd’s during Texas’ 2010 tax-free weekend? Me either. But few people know that you can still get tax-free deals on qualifying items at many websites. As long as the store does business in Texas, you can buy from their online presence and still get the discount. For example, Target operates brick-and-mortar stores in Texas; therefore, things like school clothes at Target.com should still be tax-free. Here’s some of the best online deals for back-to-school items:
Old Navy – shop boy bargains here and girl bargains here. They’ve got a LOT of cute stuff, including school uniform items starting at $9.50. Plus, there’s a HUGE online sale if you shop by 8/21. Use the code ONFALL to get 25 percent off on Aug. 20, and 20 percent off on Aug. 21.
Shoebuy –Take $5 off any order of $50 or more at Shoebuy.com plus Free shipping. Use the code BUY5 when you check out to get the discount. Or use the code SHOEBUY to get 10 percent off. (Compare the coupons to see which one is most valuable for you.)
