Perhaps I should back up – you see, I’ve wanted to grab a Teething Bling necklace ever since I discovered baby Ryder liked to grab at my jewelry and put it in his mouth. The product was profiled on Celebrity Babies and other urban mama sites, and I thought they were a cool way to be both fashionable and give junior something to gum at as well. Unfortunately, by the time I got around to looking them up online, Ryder was out of his gnawing phase.
FYI – Teething Bling is the original patent-pending teething jewelry. Made from the same material as most teething toys, the pendants and bangles look great on the adult wearer but are safe for curious babies to handle and chew. The products are non-toxic, phthalate, BPA, PVC, latex and lead free and all pendants come with a breakaway clasp as an added safety measure.
So I figured that Reid would be the lucky beneficiary of a more organized mommy, and I visited a few local stores that carried the product. Impressive? Sure. Not so impressive was the $24.99 price tag. I know, I know, it’s “jewelry”, but it’s also a teething toy, dammit, and I refused to pay $25 for a teething toy.
Then, months ago, I saw them on Babysteals.com for just $9.99. But urgh! I was too late – by the time I checked in at 11:26am – just 26 minutes after they went on sale – the site was sold out. I made a promise that I would stalk Babysteals like an animal until they came up for sale again.
And they did. Last week. And I was out for the day, running errands. FML.
And then the heavens parted. On the home page, I saw this glorious ad:
I like! I like! I was so happy because the Bronze pendant was at the top of my wish list! I was down $10 from what Canadian retailers sell the product for. Not bad at all.
Shipping to Canada was a paltry $3, so I was prepared to spend $18 US total ($18.40 CDN) and considered it a deal. BUT, then I remembered good ol’ Google Search for “teething bling coupon code” and was able to come up with code S-SMJ, which offered 20% off my purchase! So, the total cost including shipping? $15! Woot! Woot!
Resume gleeful air punching.
