Here are our top choices for bargains this week:

It Pays to Do Back-to-School Shopping Early

It’s just about time to start thinking about all the necessities your college-bound student will need before heading off for some higher learning, and Target is making it easier on your wallet. The first 50,000 people to create an online college registry with Target worth $500 or more before May 16 will receive a free $20 Target gift card. (It will be mailed to you within three weeks.) Plus, the next time a family member asks how they can help out, you can just direct them to the registry. Any way you can save money for college will help!

A Freebie That’s Ideal for Father’s Day

Another fantastic freebie this week comes from Walgreens. Normally this personalized desktop calendar costs $9.99, but coupon code “TOPOFDESK” cuts it to $0. Unfortunately you’ll have to shell out $5.95 for shipping, but that’s exceptionally cheap for a custom-made calendar. Mother’s Day has passed, but consider loading up some pictures for a nice Father’s Day treat. Deal ends May 13.

A Lot of Luxury at a Little Price

It’s rare for luxury brands to offer steep discounts, which is why this clearance sale from Cole Haan is so juicy. Predominantly known for high-end leather goods, the store is taking an extra 40% off both men’s and women’s clearance shoes, handbags, and accessories via coupon code “EXTRA40.” That’s the best discount we’ve seen from Cole Haan this year, knocking many items to exceptionally low prices. We recommend stocking up on some quintessential ballet flats while the shopping is hot. Deal ends May 13.

The Cheapest Way to Visit China

Smart travelers know that in order to save mucho dinero on a trip, you have to be flexible with your vacation dates. Case in point: If you don’t mind waiting until January 2016 to embark on this Beijing and Shanghai 7-night vacation package for two people, then you’ll pay only $2,198 total, which is the best price we’ve seen for any week-long Chinese vacation. You’ll save up to $1,580, which is no small chunk of change. The trip includes round-trip airfare from the U.S., hotels in Beijing and Shanghai, flights between the two cities, meals, and sightseeing tours, so it’s perfect for a traveler who gets overwhelmed by choice.
