KitchenAid 6 Quart Professional Series (red) – $289 (reg. $449)

KitchenAid-6-quart-professional-600-series

Amazon dropped the price on this KitchenAid KP26M1XER 6 Qt. Professional 600 Series – Empire Red to $289 (reg. $449). This is the BEST price it’s been on Amazon since April 2011!  It’s also the lowest price I’m finding online right now. It’s the RED color only at this price. 

KitchenAid KP26M1XER 6 Qt. Professional 600 Series – Empire Red details:

  • All-metal 10-speed stand mixer with powerful 575-watt motor
  • 6-quart stainless-steel mixing bowl; direct-drive transmission
  • Electronic speed sensor; auto shut-off; Soft Start minimizes splatter
  • Wire whip, burnished flat beater, spiral dough hook, and pouring shield included
  • Measurements H: 16.5, W:11.3, D:14.6
  • 6-quart stainless steel bowl, comfortable handle
  • Bowl lift design, 10 speeds

But wait – I want to point out that this is a SUPER price but there is a possibility of this same mixer (with other color choices) being lower on Black Friday from Kohl’s.

For example, LAST YEAR on Black Friday 2013, Kohl’s had this deal for this mixer:

KitchenAid Pro 600 Stand Mixer- $449.99 (reg. $549.99)
Use code BLACKFRI for an extra 15% off
Drops price to $382.49
Earn $105 Kohl’s cash
$50 mail in rebate
Final price: $227.49

With the Kohl’s deal, you’re still paying $382 out of pocket and then you have $105 Kohl’s cash that you have to spend at Kohl’s and a $50 mail-in rebate to send in to get the final price of $227.49. This Amazon deal is one of the strongest offers I’ve seen online WITHOUT Kohl’s cash and rebates – but if you don’t mind those extra factors, you can wait until Black Friday and hope for the same deal to come around. Kohl’s often has the best Kitchen Aid deals on Black Friday when you factor in the Kohl’s cash and rebates. See Kohl’s Black Friday prices from last year

Keep in mind this is also one of the NICEST KitchenAid mixers out there – so of course you can also save a lot of money by purchasing a less expensive unit. We see the more basic models for closer to $150 – $200 after Kohl’s cash and Black Friday prices.

Hope this information and background is helpful for you if a KitchenAid mixer is on your list this holiday season. :) I would LOVE YOUR THOUGHTS – do you prefer deals that have lower out of pocket and/or do you like the deals that factor in Kohl’s cash into your final price?? 

Ships FREE. Amazon prices can change at anytime.

Easy homemade popcorn ball recipe (using JELL-O)

Pin it here.

Originally published in September 2012, I’m sharing again since it’s the season for popcorn balls again!

Ahhh popcorn balls. I guess, back in the old days, back when everybody actually knew everybody (and by that I mean not just Facebook friends) – people would give out homemade popcorn balls on Halloween. My mom has made them every Halloween for as long as I can remember – mostly to send to my Grandma (her mom) who LOVES them.

My mom got this recipe from her aunt Eileen M. It’s not necessarily gourmet and it will rot your teeth. BUT it is very, very yummy and it is very, very easy. Maybe make a batch and bring them to your neighbor, just for old times sake.

INGREDIENTS

20 cups of popped popcorn (air popped is best)

1 cup light corn syrup

1/2 cup white sugar

1 small package of JELL-O, any flavor

DIRECTIONS

1.) Bring corn syrup and sugar to a boil. When sugar is dissolved, remove from heat. Be careful you don’t want to burn this stuff.

2.) Stir JELL-O into syrup and sugar mixture.

3.) Put popped corn into a very large mixing bowl and pour the mixture over the popcorn.

4.) Spray hands with a non-stick spray or you could use butter. Anything to grease your hands up so the popcorn doesn’t stick.

5.) Form popcorn into balls. Let harden. Store in Ziploc bags or wrapped in cellophane until ready to eat. Store at room temperature.

Have you made homemade popcorn balls before? What’s your favorite flavor?

(Thank you for the recipe and photo mom. Wish I was up in Alaska to make them with you!)

BEST toy deals on Amazon – updated October 30, 2014

Best-Amazon-Toy-Deals-December-17

Best Toy Deals on Amazon

For the past few holiday seasons I’ve compiled this Best Amazon Toy Deals list that has helped my readers save thousands of dollars!  It’s one of my most popular features on the site and I plan to once again update this list for the 2014 holiday season. I’m starting to drop deals into the list as I find them and I expect that toy deals will continue to pick up as we head toward November!

Toys-Donated-By-Queen_Bee-Readers

Last year – thanks to people shopping through the links in this post (and supporting Queen Bee) and the amazing toy deals we were able to score – my family was able to donate all these toys to local non-profits last Christmas! We were able to buy more than $700 worth of toys (pictured above) for $250 because of the deals in this list. I hope to be able to do this again this year.

I aim for deals that are BEST prices and at least 50% with many deals closer to 70-90% off!! Amazon toy deals are AMAZING every holiday season so you’ll want to bookmark this page and check back often to get the latest list of best toy deals on Amazon!

Amazon-Black-Friday-Deals-2014

If you’re interested in lightning deals, check out the official Amazon Black Friday page.

**If you are a blogger, please do not copy and my paste my list. I mean this in the nicest possible way. I spend hours, if not days, compiling and updating this list for my readers.

*New* means it’s been added since the last update
*Best price* means it’s the best price I’ve seen on Amazon
*Price drop* means it’s dropped to even lower, while on the list
*HOT!* means I think it’s one of the VERY best deals, but I only post the great deals, so they are all pretty hot, if you ask me.
