If you’re anything like me, you’re feeling an insatiable urge to leave town right about now. Returning may or may not be in the cards, depending on your destination. Spring throws us a bone every couple days, teasing us with a warm, sunny day, but winter continues to cling to life, refusing to release us from its icy grip. Our only respite? Vacation. Sweet, blissful, glorious, vacation. And I’m not talking about a short road trip; I’m talking about a full-fledged, jump on a plane, break out the suitcase, sunscreen, swim trunks and flip-flops sort of vacation.
One of the more important aspects of vacationing, is taking photographs and video, in order to capture all of the memories. So today, in order to satisfy my cruel and crippling daydreams, I’m going to talk about camera deals at Walmart. Shopping with KickItBack will earn you an additional 2% cash back on your camera purchase!
First thing’s first: Wherever you go, you’re going to want to capture each and every moment so that when you’re back home, waiting out the cold weather like the rest of us poor schlubs, you can go through your photos and videos and relive the bliss you found during your stay in paradise. Personally, I’m a big fan of a good ol’ DSLR. You may not know that term, DSLR, but you know the type of camera: Their the cameras with the big bodies and changeable lenses. The DSLR can set you back a pretty penny, depending on the brand and the model, but you have a lot more control over the images and video you take.
You can save money when buying a DSLR by choosing to go with an entry-level model, and by buying it bundled with a lens. Take the Canon EOS Rebel T3 bundle from Walmart. For just $479 (normally $549), you get the camera body, a versatile 18-55mm Canon lens, a 16 GB SDHD memory card, a 4 GB SD memory card, a Targus 58″ tripod, and a Canon gear bag. Not a bad deal at all!
Let’s say the DSLR isn’t for you. A point-and-shoot may be right up your alley! These bad boys are a lot more compact, and quite frankly, a bit easier to use for the — what’s the opposite of a shutterbug? — users out there. In addition, point-and-shoot cameras tend to be significantly cheaper on the whole.
Check out the Nikon COOLPIX S3300, for example. At just $79 (normally $139), you get a quality 16 MP camera, an 8 GB SD memory card and a carrying case. Or maybe you’re more interested in getting some of those awesome underwater shots. In that case, you’ll need something a big more rugged, like the Nikon COOLPIX AW100 camera. The casing on these cameras is waterproof and much more durable than your average camera. Beat this thing up all you want! For just $249 (normally $349), you get the camera, an 8 GB SD memory card and a carrying case.
If the Nikon COOLPIX AW100 isn’t rugged enough for you, or you prefer to take footage of your craziest stunts and adventures, the GoPro HERO3 is your best bet. The White edition with a 16 GB micro SD card is now only $199 at Walmart. The newer edition is WiFi enabled, allowing you to upload your pictures or videos immediately. The case and mounting hardware are also included, allowing you to mount the camera to your helmet or any other surface.
Speaking of the GoPro, check out this video shot entirely with the HERO3:
Now get out there and swim with the sharks! And don’t forget to film it! Also, remember to shop with KickItBackto earn your 2% cash back reward. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates on the hottest new deals of the season.
My kids both have springtime birthdays, and I like to get the majority of my party supplies online. During the party, I love being asked, “Where did you find these?” Probably a little too much, but hey, at least with KickItBack, I’m earning cash back on my party supply obsession, right?
Even though we’re still working on themes for this year’s birthday extravaganzas, I know that there are a ton of retailers on KickItBack to help me find what I need.
Here are some of my favorites!
No matter what theme we go with, my little girl insists on featuring her favorite color of all time: pink!
The Martha Stewart party supply line is my favorite thing to drool over at Walmart and the pink poms-poms that are currently on sale for $14.94 are on our list for this year!
Have you seen the adorable lighted flower garland? I love it and I think it will add a cute touch to our decorations. We can reuse it for lots of other things as well. The lighted garland is also in the Martha Stewart party supply collection and is $13.40. Did I mention that the garland was battery operated? Seriously…I love that thing!
Battery operated cuteness and 12 o'clock!
When I stock up at Walmart with KickItBack, I get to earn 2% cash back. Cash back always makes me do the happy-dance!
Are you a pinata household? I know that they have recently fallen out of favor with many event planners because of the potential injuries that invariably come when you hand a sugared-up kid a bat. Oh, yeah, and then you blindfold them. Sounds like a recipe for success, right?
Despite the warnings, and even though they’ve come out with those new “safer” pull-string pinatas, we still let our son have the old fashioned Whack-It-Til-It-Bleeds-Candy contraptions. He loves it and so do his buddies. (We make his little sister watch from inside, just to be safe!)
To combat the pinata-guilt, my husband and I like to add little toys and goodies to the inside of the pinata, instead of stuffing it with just candy. Turns out, the kids hauling in the goods like the little toys too! High-fives for being fun parents!
Who doesn't love classic toys falling from the sky? Thanks, Target!
I know that I have not been shy about my love for Target in the past, but seriously…I love Target. I am so glad that they are part of the KickItBack family and that I can get cash back for stuff that I was already planning to buy!
I love that I can get free shipping on my Target.com purchases by just signing up for their free Red Card. I decided to get the card that linked up to my debit card and now I get 5% off my Target purchase, 1.5% cash back from KickItBack and free shipping. Seriously! Am I dreaming? Is it raining money right now?
But back to pinatas.
Target has this great party favor mix that we love using in our potentially violent party activity. It’s got a bunch of classic little toys that the kids seem to go nuts over, and they don’t even seem to miss the lack of candy. These little toys also make great goody bag fillers and are totally worth the $9.94 price.
I am also in love with this Threshhold Vintage Glass Beverage Dispenser. Do I already own two beverage dispensers? Yes. Are either of those as awesome as this one? No.
Drink dispensers are my weakness. Isn't this one adorable?
Target has this 5.5 liter dispenser (that’s nearly three pitchers of lemonade, people!) for just $24.99. If you don’t have a Red Card, the item will still qualify for free shipping if you hit the $50 mark in your cart with other eligible items.

It’s that special time of year once again. Some would consider late January/early February to be their Christmas, and really, who can blame them? It’s Super Bowl time, baby! Whether you’re into it because of the game itself, the teams playing, the food and beer, or you’re all about the commercials, it really is an exciting weekend. This year, fans of the Harbaugh brothers and their teams, the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens are really in for a treat as they watch their respective teams battle it out for those coveted rings.
Let’s say you’re already prepared for the festivities. You’ve got the beer and snacks; you’ve got your new TV posted up on the wall; maybe you went out and bought some new furniture to make sure everyone’s comfortable—and more importantly, to make sure they all want to come back next year!—but still, there’s something missing…
Then it hits you: You need to gear up with the latest Super Bowl gear around! After all, you can’t be caught rooting for your team in last year’s threads. (Unless, of course, they’re lucky!)
The official NFL Shop has you covered with the latest 49ers and Ravens gear, so let’s take a look at some of the great options you’ve got to choose from. And remember, when you shop with KickItBack, you can earn an additional 2.5% cash back on your purchases!

What’s hot right now? Conference championship and Super Bowl XLVII gear, naturally.
If your team didn’t make it, or you’re just a fan of the game itself, start your search off by checking out their exclusive Super Bowl XLVII gear. They’ve got Super Bowl 47 jerseys, jackets, hats, and memorabilia for the whole family.
If you’re a ’9ers fan, you’ve got to be happy with the way Colin Kaepernick has been playing. Chances are you’ve probably done the “Kaepernick” as well at some point. If that’s the case, then the Nike Colin Kaepernick Bicep T-shirt is for you. 100% cotton short-sleeve shirt with Kaepernick’s signature bicep pose screened across the front. Pick it up for just $27.99!

This replica Lewis jersey is constructed out of 100% polyester, with the team name and Lewis’ name and number screened on the front and back. The tailored fit, no-tag neckline and strategic ventilation make it the perfect choice for game day, whether you’re on the field or planted on the couch! It’s a steal at just $119.99.
