Amazon

Heads Up

  • From Lisa, “Got my Gear XS “leggings” . I am certain a lot of you ordered this as it was blogged heavily. Decent item but I purchased several of them as my intention was to pair them with a top as a gift. Now I am out shopping for leggings as when they came the packing reads tights. Totally different mind set from a wearers stand point. Leggings you imagine as pants and could wear with a top. Tights you imagine something like a skirt going over  and more of a under garment. I personally felt that these were misrepresented and would not have ordered them had I known they were tights. Did Everyone else get tights too?”
  • Rachel comments, ‘I always thought of leggings as footless tights, unless they are like jeggings — these are actually thicker than some of the ones I have seen worn with tops?”
  • Lisa replies, “True, they are thicker than a lightweight pair of leggings. I bought a lined pair of leggings at Walmart and they are structured like pants and not tights. These have 2 seams  on the tush part that are very akin to thermal long underwear and are tube shaped as apposed to a pant shape. For tights, they are a decent deal. In my area they are available for about $5 a pair for similar quality so worth the money. If I were buying them for the purpose as they are labeled “tights”, all would have been good. However they probably would not have sold so many (especially to me) if they were accurately described and not represented as something they are not.”
  • From feelgood, “Hollister has all jeans and pants on sale for $20 today only, with free shipping at $25.”
  • Sharisse commented on the Buffalo Wild Wings deal: “I did this last year & never received anything back. :(“
  • Caroline sent this:

Jewel

  • Michelle found some deals today, “Just got home from Jewel at Geneva Road and Main Street y(Wheaton) and they have the hormel pork loin back ribs for $1.99/lb most packs were $5!! They have quite a few of these. They also have some hamburger patties on sale $4 for 4 patties.”

Meijer

  • Feelgood sent this comment about a Meijer policy, “Looks like you can buy something today at a higher price, then get the difference back after the item goes on sale in an upcoming weekly ad.”

Reader Requests

  • Rachel sent this for Nancy: Meijer is doing Santa Bucks Wed and Thurs this week, and they’re already available to load in mPerks.
  • Allison sent a suggestion for the kitty litter question from yesterday, “Joanne- I recommend Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light. I use this for my cat with sensitive skin and it doesn’t bother him at all. I use the fragrance free variety and it is dust free and does a good job of keeping the box smelling fresh. Jewel and Meijer carry it and it goes on sale pretty often.”
  • Sabrina also has some suggestions, “Dustless cat litter-we use the Breeze litter box system for our two cats. It uses pellets and also absorbent pads at the same time. Not only is it way cleaner than traditional litter, the cost also ends up being less for us weekly. But the initial cost was higher than a regular box.”
  • –and about the groupon goods, “For the groupon goods I too ordered four things from them. The shipping did take way longer than I anticipated, but I finally received the fourth and final order today. My orders were placed before thanksgiving.”
  • Lisa Maria has a question, “Hi! Any deals when you renew your Sam’s club membership?”

Restaurant.com two day code, $25 for $4.25

  • Feelgood sent some suggestions for Letsshop on the Restaurant.com two day code, “there are a few restaurants in your area that don’t require you to spend double the certificate amount. Examples: Broadway Pancake House in Brookfield, $5 certificate for a $7.50 minimum purchase, or $10 certificate for a $15 minimum purchase. Grand Tavern in Brookfield, $10 certificate for a $15 minimum purchase. Andreas in Forest Park, $5 certificate for a $7.50 minimum purchase.”

Star Wars Phone Cases

Target

  • Jessica on Facebook, found Just Dance 2015 is on sale for $25.00, shipped, for multiple platforms.
  • Vicki adds, “I found ToysRUs has the xbox 360 version on their website for $19.99. Target price matched for me on Sunday even though theirs was on sale for $25 in store. Plus used my red card for extra 5% off!”
  • Debbie sends a comment on the Target Free With Coupons, “Our Champaign Target had the Clorox wipes at $.92 and not the $.48.  I have more trouble with them than any other store when you mention deals in the Chicago area and then we don’t get them here always.”
  • Kay replies, “I have noticed some Target stores here (Western Suburbs) have them priced at $.92 and other stores have them for $.48. Prices are pretty inconsistent even with stores relatively close to each other.”

Gift Cards

  • Susan has a comment onthe Spa Finder Gift Card Promo, “Costco has 2 $50 cards for $79.99
  • Brandy says, “Finally took advantage of the 20% off gift cards (Amazon and others) at Thornton’s. The one on 63rd in Woodridge had at least 10 Amazon cards on the display. I bought one… deal says 1 per customer even though I know others have purchased more. Also signed up for a rewards gas card and got $.10 off per gallon (for 3 months apparently), so paid $2.49/gal!! Thanks.”

Heads Up!

  • Lynn sent a comment,” I may be the last one to know this, but  I discovered today that some Amazon Lightening Deals also have other promotions that compute on the PRE-DEAL (regular Amazon) price.  As an example, I bought a men’s jacket normally $78 on lightening deal for $24.99.  I noticed on the item description page that there was a 30% off promotion when you entered a code at checkout.  I entered that code at checkout and it took off another $23.40 (30% of $78).  The net cost was $1.59 shipped.  I thought they might cancel my order, but it has shipped and my card charged $1.59. I’ve tried this on several other items and the math works the same way, although typically the discount is not quite so dramatic.”
  • Rebecca, “Not sure if this has been noted yet, but the Stride Rite store at Oak Brook Mall is closing in 2 weeks. All inventory is 70% off, even off of already reduced prices. It’s a bit of a jumble but the employees are super helpful. For $95, I scored 10 pairs of shoes, including KEEN, MERRILL, and SAUCONY that retail for $60+. There is a HUGE amount of infant/toddler sizes, a lot of boots. The boys’ section had mostly larger (kid 1-4) sizes but some 9-10-12 toddler too.”
  • Julie has some comments on the Crayola deal at Target, “FYI – the BOGO 50% mix and match is a mess with Crayola.  The print ads and in store signage do not include Crayola, but the online site does.  The prices online for the 1 or 2 items I was interested in were higher than in store, but out of stock online.  I tried working it out at customer service, but the gal working the desk yesterday dais that Crayola must have been a separate BOGO sale.  If you go to the BOGO sale on target.com however, it shows all the Crayola items in with the Nerf, Barbie, etc.  I printed out the page with the item I’m looking for mixed and matches with all the other brands and will see if it works.  If so, Crayola also has a 30% off cartwheel to make things even better.”

Legos

  • Maria has a tip on finding Lego storage, “For those who thrift, I’ve seen these at Goodwill a few times. Usually priced between $4.99-$14.99, depending on the condition and which location. I got a pair for $4.99 each and they were perfect. So, if you’re patient – keep your eyes peeled. ;)
  • Julie also a suggestion where to find storage, “Menards had a 10 drawer one that looks identical to the right half of the one pictured above for $20 on Black Friday weekend.  If interested, you might check your local Menards for a cheaper option if they have any left.”
  • Another source from Elizabeth, “i have seen similar ones at Joann’s fabrics as well.”
  • From Meg, “These come up on Amazon Lightning Deals for around $25 and I have gotten the one that is half the size at Michael’s with a 40% off coupon.  That being said, I would recommend not wasting your money.  The drawers do not stay in the guides and you end up with a stack of drawers on the floor.  We use ours for craft and art supply storage and I’m constantly swearing at it.”
  • From Bob, “they have them on sale at menards also”
  • Kathryn comments, “I didn’t have good luck with these…the drawers come out too easily and don’t stay even.”
  • San reports, “That’s sooo expensive and not the greatest quality. Every year I see a fellow teacher throw hers out.
  • On the Lego Minecraft Enderdragon, Julie says “Toys R US usually does a B1G1 50% a week or 2 before christmas. I’m holing out and hoping they will this year as well.”

Mariano’s

  • Don has some Mariano’s Deals, “Shorewood store has several specials, specific to their store. They have coupon books in store with $5/$50 limit 1 and same book has Perdue s/b breast $1.68 so $1.50/lb after spending 50 with coupon. My 1st stop in store was to show the front desk manager a print of their ad showing the milk and asked if he will honor the $3.50 for a full gallon and he said absolutely, when cashier asked I advised her of that and had no problems. BTW, I had the produce guy bring out more potebello mushrooms and they were really really nice and fresh…. the c/s at this store is top notch…..”

Meijer

  • Janelle sent this deal, “Meijer is having a fantastic sale on fine jewelry (12/10 & 12/11) for 2 days only. Everything is 70% off with another 10% taken off at the register. Add the Santa Bucks on top of that and you can score some amazing jewelry very cheap. I purchased a $200 necklace for $44 last night. :) Today is the last day.”
  • Maria comments on the Free Colgate Toothbrush, “Last night stopped at the Niles store and no toothbrushes.  Went to Customer Service hoping to get a raincheck and they told me to go pick out a Meijer toothbrush as a substitute.

Reader Requests

  • Letsshop asks, “What does Boursin cheese taste like? or similar to ?”
  • Kelly answers, “On the Borsin garlic and herb cheese, if I remember correctly, it’s similar to a whipped Philadelphia garlic and herb cream cheese.”
  • Bridget is looking for the coupon, “Where is the $1.50 coupon for boursin cheese located?  Thank you”
  • Rachel sends the link to the Boursin coupon, use ZIP 02134

Strack & Van Til

  • Melissa found a coupon to go with the Strack Van Til deal, “there is a $1 back offer on checkout51 for wild harvest hummus. The 13.4oz jars are ,99 cents at stracks this week. Free hummus!

Carson’s

  • TracyS reports on the Carsons Huge Storewide Sale, “Check your ad in today’s paper for a coupon good for an extra 30%off on yellow and  black dot items. I got a Kasper dress for $17.50 and a rm Richards dress for $23.09″
  • Diane has a question on the Conforters and sheet sets sale, “I have been looking at that red comforter with the white snowflakes for the past month and trying to decide if it is cute or gaudy.  I think I need to check it out in person – does anyone know if it is in the stores?  Anyone know how it looks live?”

Coupons

  • Don found some coupons, “In today’s Trib ,with the ads, I received a Mariano coupon book with a $5/$50 and other coupons including a Perdue S/B Breast $1.68/pound…. combo that with the 5/50 and it is time to stock up on decent brand chicken…”

Heads Up

  • From Seachicago, “Something to be aware of, if you’re traveling and put a “vacation hold” on your newspapers: the Chicago Tribune rep told me that they will no longer issue you a credit/subscription extension on a hold less than 30 days (since 2011, he claimed, although it was certainly news to me).  This seemed pretty outrageous to me, particularly if you have multiple subscriptions; that can really add up to quite a few dollars.  I pushed back (politely), and refused to back down (politely) until he agreed to extend my subscriptions.  My next step was simply going to be to cancel my subscriptions, but I didn’t need to go that far. Just something to know, and be prepared to speak up!”

Marianos

  • Kelly sent some deals, “A couple of things at Mariano’s:  Boursin cheese spread is on sale for $3.99.  Use the $1.50 off one coupon (does not double on double daze) and get it for $2.49.  Then get $1 back from Checkout 51 for $1.49 cheese.  Boursin is also on double deal on Checkout 51 so you can get two for that price (if you have 2 coupons).  MinuteMaid juice boxes are regularly priced $3.19.  Use the $1 q on double daze and get them for $1.19.  Starbucks K-cups (10ct.) are on sale for $7.  Use the $1.50/1 q (does not double) to get it for $5.50 (55 cents/cup).  And Driscoll raspberries and blackberries are on sale for $2.50.  Every time I go on double daze, I tell them that the coupon says do not double.  And every time they tell me that the system automatically does it.  So if they’re not concerned about it, then I’m not.  So you can get those berries for 50 cents on double daze.”

Reader Requests

  • Heather has a request, “Hey does anyone know of a good deal on wreaths I would like to put one on my dads and grandma grave this year before Christmas. thanks in advance”
  • Laura has a comment on buying a car, “The last week in Dec is a good time to buy a car.  Car dealers sense when you are in a rush or really need a car.  Enterprise usually has some good deals on car rentals – 150 for a week or $600 for a month.  Book on on-line – don’t call.  You don’t want to rush so it might be worth the extra rental time. If you are financing make sure you run the numbers for a new car and used.  You pay a higher rate for a used car and the end result might be the same or cheaper for a new one.   It’s a huge risk to buy used if you can’t do the repairs yourself. Edmunds.com has fair prices which shows you what other people are paying for the car in your area.  It’s a very useful tool but make sure you check for new incentives (they list them on their site) because your price out the door might even be cheaper.”
  • Maggie sent in an idea for where to donate any Jewel cookware coupons, “The Stars Family Services are actually building a second home for this purpose (first home for adult men has been functioning very successful for several years now) and need to outfit a kitchen! So any extra Jewel stamps would be very welcome! Please send them to PO Box 1388, Wheaton IL 60187. Thank you so much!!!”
  • Lori is looking for some almond meal, “Anyone knows of deals on almond meal?  I am kicking myself for forgetting the Tony’s deal at $6.99 last week.  I cannot buy trader joes because it is manufactured/facility with wheat.  Thank you!”
  • Seachicago has an idea for Lori, “If you have a sturdy food processor, you might try making your own almond flour: but the almonds in bulk, and then just grind them til they’re the consistency you want (but before they release all their oil and turn into almond butter!).  Might be worth a shot, especially if there are food allergy concerns and your kitchen is already wheat-free.”
  • Connie has another suggestion, “Lori, I usually buy the Bob’s Red Mill from Amazon. I get it for the subscribe and save price of $26.08 for a set of 4 bags so it runs about $6.50 a bag if you need some right now, Big Lots usually has the BRM bags for a little under $10.You can make your own as seachicago mentioned, but I find the grind size doesn’t get down small enough to make good flour.”
  • Jennifer has a question, “Has anyone received their rebate for Palmolive dish detergent from a few months ago?”
  • Katy has a request, “Does anylne know of places that you can order pre assembled meals for freezing. I know there is dinnersby design but was looking for  other choices.  I just had my daughter 2 weeks earlier then planned so I didn’t have time to make my own meals.ty”
  • Stacey has some ideas for Katy, “Katy, first of all, congrats on the birth of your daughter! For ease/logistics as a tired momma, I would just use Peapod to order groceries. My easy go-to meals: 1. sloppy joes (meat, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, onions and celery, if on-hand) 2. Tuna Salad, 3. BLTs, 4. Grilled Cheese and soup, 5. Mac and Cheese, 6. Spaghetti/some other pasta shape, 7. Chicken!!  A million different dishes. Google chicken+ whatever ingredients you have on hand and you’ll get a wealth of ideas, or use these websites:  allrecipes or foodnetwork or food.com. My boys like olive oil and Italian seasoning on their chicken, just baked. They also like our “Mexican Feast Night”–we use flour tortillas (always in the frig for us!) w/chix cut into strips w/Lawry’s Chicken Fajita seasoning and some onions (and refried beans and shredded cheese.) Sometimes we cook taco meat, but most of the time they’re happier w/just the fajitas. Yum! Stock up on some family-sized Stouffers frozen meals-their lasagna is fair, the meatloaf is actually pretty good, and once in a while their enchiladas hit the spot. Also, omelettes aren’t just for breakfast :)”
  • Another suggestion for Katy from Connie, “Torch Cookery in Lisle does that if you want a local place. Schwan’s (www.schwans.com) is another place that delivers preassembled meals that are frozen. Artizone.com also offers some meals already predone as well and their delivery is pretty reasonable.”
  • Shirley adds, “Congratulations on your newborn. Schwan is very expensive in my opinion. I do not know where you live. Dinner by Design has a store in Downers Grove and other locations. https://dinnerbydesignkitchen.com/index.aspx  You can have a friend or family member assemble the meals for you or have Dinner by Design assemble and deliver to you. I personally have not used this company so I cannot give you feedback.”
  • Letsshop has a suggestion for anyone looking for a deal on craisins, “I remember Crasins being the cheapest at Sams club 3 pounds or 48 oz. same weight ,been a while so you  check price ! Especially if you could used that much .”

Target

  • rifat found another coupon to use on the Starbucks deal this week at Target, “Starbucks has a better coupon on their ‘origin’ site. The old one was $2.00 for “Origin coffee only”. The newer version is $2.00 for any bag. Did the deal using 3 of the newer version, worked fine.” (note this coupon prints as limit one per person.)

Amazon

  • Lynn sent over this deal, “There is a pretty good deal on Kashi Organic Promise Cereal on Amazon right now.  With the 25% off coupon and 15% S&S tier, 4 boxes of the Autumn Wheat (kind of like mini-wheats) is $7.80.  $1.95/box is not bad for organic cereal delivered to your door!  Several flavors at similar savings, give or take a few pennies.”

Body Shop

  • Christina sent this note about the half price body shop deal, “I used a Groupon over the weekend and was disappointed to find out that The Body Shop no longer allows you to combine a Groupon with either their sales or their card member discount.  Not as good of a deal as it used to be.

Cyber Monday

  • Paula sent this on the Harry and David Cyber Monday deal, “Check your catalogs-just found (2) free shipping codes in the catalog in my mailbox-ordered some holiday gifts for two grandparents with them!!

Free with Coupons

  • Kitty send this comment for a Free with Coupons deal, “Northfield Target had Clorox wipes on clearance for 48c.  Saw them on Wed. 12/3.”

Ibotta

  • Sarah found an Ibotta coupon, “Ibotta has $1 back on Land o lakes butter. You can price match there with ultra at 2.28 and pay 1.28 after cash back!”

Jewel

  • Jane found some coupons for a deal at Jewel this week, “I found some new coupons to print from Jewels site. $1/2 EE frozen pie crusts, $1.50/2 EE baking chips. Plus there is still the Arctic Shores shrimp one along with the specialty meats coupon.”

Lia Sophia

  • Maureen sent this, “As part of their going out of business sale, Lia Sophia outlet is having a 70% off sale at https://www.shopliasophia.com. Enter code THANKYOU at check out and save an additional 15%. Current catalog pieces are 50% off, but must be ordered through a Lia Sophia consultant.”

My Coke Rewards

  • Matt commented on the Holiday Rewards, “It’s kind of confusing what they are doing with the holiday rewards. They want people to attach a Twitter account to My Coke Rewards Beta and tweet things to unlock rewards. They have most of the same rewards as last year, but you have to jump through hoops to get the rewards. “

Restaurant & Retail Bonus Gift Cards

  • Lori sent this comment about the restaurant holiday bonus gift card deal, “Papa Johns has a deal that for every 25.00 giftcard you purchase you get a coupon for a free pizza.  Free pizza coupon must be used by 1/25/2015.”
  • Brandy has another deal on the same thread, “Don’t forget discount cards at Costco. I bought my parents PF Changs $100 in gc for $79.99. I would rather have the up-front cash off than a bonus at the end! :) Also, Mago (my fave restaurant in the ‘burbs you guys! Multiple locations!!) has $25 gc when you buy $100 in gc. I can’t say enough great things about the place.”
  • One more from K, “Massage Envy is offering a free massage or facial when you purchase $150 in gift cards or a new membership. Valid only at Oswego, Geneva Commons, Naperville North (behind Portillos), and Darien/ Downers Grove. Gift cards can be used to tip also. Valid through December 24th or until vouchers run out.”

Reader Requests

  • Fran sent this question, “Would you by chance know, or can you post this is in the Reader Requests….when is the 1800Baskets.com Warehouse Sale? It’s in Melrose Park, and it’s always right after Thanksgiving. I’m hoping it’s next weekend and not last weekend. Thanks!”
  • Diane has a question and an answer for Patty, “Patty – I also have been waiting for the Walmart $5 GC from the Palmolive promotion. I did get a response back which said that that there were only a limited number of GC’s avaulable & they had all been sent out.  Needless to say, I will not be quick to participate in any of their future offers.  Did anyone else receive theirs?”
  • Patty responds, “Thanks Diane. I think I’ll send them an email stating my dissatisfaction with their promotions.  It’s not worth my time if they don’t have enough gift cards. Ttheir selection of coupons has been abysmal lately anyway.  Definitely not worth the $5 I spent on the subscription.”
  • Letsshop commented on the energizer questions (and more!), “Got one Energizer ecard today ,also half &half $1.25 qt on sale  Mariano’s untill 12/10 Thanks for tip got mine today out in Countryside area (: Also Jingle bucks $20 off $30 I think  she made a mistake ! Thats really good for Walgreens hard to believe ): “

Target

  • Peaches sent this, “I just got an email today that Target has a cartwheel now for 10% off electronics.  It expires tomorrow 12/3.”  (Today!)
  • For anyone still going out tonight to Target (open until 11pm), the 10% cartwheel is also good on clearance items. I saw lots of laptops on clearance at 2 stores. Use your Redcard for another 5%. Some good deals! – K

Cyber Monday

  • Jennifer shares $30/$150 with code STUFFING at Uncle Dan’s, 12/1 only.

Freebies

Heads Up

  • Julie send this comment regarding the CVS deals for this week, “The 1$ coupon link that prints the $2 Triaminic coupon appears to be a misprint on the coupon itself.  It scanned as 1$ this morning at CVS.  My cashier noticed and manually entered another $1 coupon to make up for it but YMMV.”

Meijer

  • feelgood sent this Meijer deal, “Great deal at Meijer on 12 oz Meijer brand sliced bacon $2.00 each 11/30 – 12/3. There is a short 4 page ad Sunday to Wednesday, nothing else of interest other than another 10 for $10 get 11th item free deal. This 10/$10 + 11th item free deal continues in the weekly 12/4 ad with many more items, so I’d wait until then.

Reader Deals

  • Maggie comments on the Mariano’s gift card deal, “I got the gift cards at Mariano’s and paid with my credit card. I also bought a loaf of bread, so perhaps that is why I could pay using my CC?? By the way, the $25 Mariano’s “gift card” is simply an attachment on the bottom of your receipt. Easy to miss!! It says : ” Redeem this coupon on your next shopping order to receive $25 off”. So no further requirements here! :)
  • She adds:, “Oh, I forgot to mention : it expires Dec. 13 – so 2 weeks total.”

Reader Requests

  • Sharon continues her thread about cell phones and service from reader requests, “I tried to get that Samsung from Radio Shack, but, darn, they were sold out. I called the store, they sold out in one hour. Gotta love Black Friday……….do you feel the sarcasm, lol. I’m so grateful for your comments. Tried Consumer Cellular too, however, I’m afraid my son will go over on minutes with that company. They do a 6000 min a month plan (their highest), I’m going to need unlimited on his line. So, still searching, and would love any other feedback :-) Thanks so much”
  • John provides this information for Sharon ” If you’re looking to get AT&T U-verse for a short time, there’s a good moneymaker this weekend for new customers (bonus online only offer expires Nov. 30). Get $450 in reward cards with triple play ($135 per month cost with U-family and the slowest internet, $150 if you raise it to the better U200 TV, a little more for faster internet speeds), free installation. You can get $350 in rewards cards without the VOIP telephone, which reduces the cost by $25 per month. The rewards cards usually come in about 6 weeks or so, and after that you can cancel service anytime. You can schedule the service to begin several weeks or months from now, too. Don’t sign up for paperless billing: you’ll be offered an extra $10 reward card later in the sign-up process. Note, they do ask for a SSN or Driver’s license number for credit check. You can also go through various cashback sites to get more money, I think topcashback had about $110 offered for triple play. I switch back between U-verse and Comcast for the best deals, usually 2-3 months away qualifies you as a “new” customer.”
  • Monique asks, “Ok check my logic, please. We’re shopping for a no contract Samsung Galaxy S5 to use with the AT&T mobile share plan. It looks like a best option is a Certified like New phone for $550 (and a $100 bill credit offer that ends tomorrow), instead of one new for full price $650 (via AT&T Next regardless whether choose 20,24, or 30 months it is still $650). Not gutsy enough to shop on eBay for the phone. Previously the most expensive phone we’ve purchased has been $60. Thanks…Any other options that anyone knows of?”
  • Kathy answers a question from this thread as well, “For Jane, I have the Samsung Galaxy phone which I bought from Consumer Cellular”
  • Connies sent and answer to Monica from Reader Requests, “Monica, try Bulk Fresh Pantry in Westmont or The Spice Merchant in Downers Grove. The Bulk Fresh is a great store that does bulk food and spices at a discount. You can buy a lot or a little.”
  • And Outlander adds, :”Monica, they carry it at Caputos too. Also at ethnic, like Indian, stores.”
  • letsshop asks, “Could you ask how long it takes for $10eGift card from Energizer takes ,I thought I read someone received one a week later ,and wondered if it was it a printable GC or mailed ?”
  • Katie has a request, “Anyone know if any good FitBit or Jawbone bracelet deals for cyber Monday?”
  • Stacey is looking for the same thing  “I’m looking for a Fitbit or Jawbone bracelet as well..any help would be appreciated!!”
  • Read all Cyber Monday deals 

Target

  • barb sent this regarding the Target REDcard Thank You Month, “If you join pharmacy rewards and get your initial certificate for an extra 5% off a shopping trip along with using a redcard this could if they allow it all could be a great cheaper trip.”

Think Geek

  • karron3 comments on the Free Shipping Cyber Monday Sale, “Use code THANKSRTMN to get even a better deal.  Get $10 off a $50 purchase. You won’t get the $6.95 free shipping, but you’ll do better with $10 off.  Spending $100 or $150? Split up your order to use it multiple times.  Not sure when it expires.”

  • Soapboxtray added, “The coupon is attached right to the receipt so be careful, I was waiting for the cat machine to print it, the cashier didn’t seem to know the deal because she is like WOW $25 COUPON HERE, DID YOU KNOW THAT?!

Mariano’s

  • Nancy asks how long the Spend $100 get $25 gift card is good for, is it one week or two? I have not been to a Mariano’s yet, but this is a great deal.  Is it $25 off of $25 or do you need to purchase more like at Jewel?”
