Outsource your house chores to Amazon and get a free $20 gift card

amazon-home-services

Because Amazon knows what a hassle it can be to find a trusting Goat Grazer, the company has launched its Home Services store to help with everyday (and some unusual) house chores. The store offers “more than 2 MM unique service offers across over 700 professional services” ranging from standard fare like HDTV mounting services to the off-centered like cattle services and aerial yoga. Amazon wants to sell you everything and then install, fix, and maintain it for you.

Amazon Home Services soft launched last year, but today is its official unveiling. Piggybacking off the purpose of Angie’s List, Amazon Home Services is meant to help you find trusting experts to help around the house. These pros are handpicked by Amazon and will come along with verified reviews, “so customers know they are hearing from real customers.” At launch, these services are available across the US with a higher concentration near major cities.

amazon-home-services-free-gift-card

Anyone who buys a service from Amazon’s new store worth $99 or more will lock in a free $20 gift card, which translates into a savings of up to 20%.

Nintendo deals: amiibo figures 25% off, Mario/Donkey Kong/Animal Crossing 3DS games $25, eShop 10% off

nintendo-amiibo-figures

Anyone who knows me (or follows me), knows that I’ve got a bit of an amiibo problem. I started out just looking to get Donkey and Diddy Kong since they are my favorite Nintendo characters. Then I got sucked into the amiibo vortex. Now, amiibo figures are peppered throughout my office. Sure I love how each figure can unlock exclusive in-game content, but I’ve got to admit the real draw for me is just how cool they look.

Now’s the time to get into the action if you’ve been sitting on the sidelines of the amiibo craze. Target is taking 25% off all in-stock amiibo figures online and in-store. Typically priced at $12.99 each, this sale drops the final price down to $9.74. REDcard holders will save an additional 5% and get free shipping on all orders. All other buyers will need to spend $25+ to sidestep shipping costs.

mario-kart-7-3ds

It’s no secret that Nintendo makes the best games for its consoles. The only problem is that they are rarely discounted. But right now Best Buy (matched at Amazon) has various Nintendo 3DS titles on sale. Gamers Club Unlocked members can save an additional 20% off the purchase price.

Standouts include:

We’re hearing some Target locations may have these titles marked all the way down to $14.99 (an amazing price) so it may be worth stopping by your local store.

nintendo-eshop-gift-card

Nintendo eShop sells downloadable current generation and virtual console (NES, SNES, Game Boy Advance) games, DLC, entertainment, and more. Just like Nintendo games, eShop gift cards rarely go on sale. Now’s the time to stock up while Best Buy is discounting $10, $20, $30, and $50 eShop gift cards by 10%.

Save 20% off Patagonia, The North Face and much more at the REI dividends sale

REI is running its annual dividends sale for members, offering 20% off one full-priced item or 20% off one item from its outlet. This deal is particularly notable because there are very few exclusions on full-priced products. There is potential for savings on items that are usually excluded from other sales such as Patagonia, The North Face as well as camping and outdoor equipment.

If you’re not already an REI member, this promotion will work if you add a $20 enrollment to your cart. Any purchase over $100 is going to render an effectively free membership, with more potential savings above that threshold. REI members also receive an annual dividend of 10% back on eligible purchases throughout the year.

Our favorite deals from this sale include:
