brookstone-on-groupon

Update: sportnfood shares: “Try code UNLOCK10. It takes $10 off any Groupon over $25. I’ll be doing some early Christmas shopping at Brookstone!This code appears to be account specific — it’s working for some people but not others. If it doesn’t work for you, try the UNLOCK20 code below for $5 off.

——-

Check out this deal: Brookstone is so fun to browse, yet so pricey to buy — why not bring that on down to a more affordable level with today’s Groupon. They’re offering a $25 for $50 Brookstone voucher, but use code UNLOCK20 today only for another $5 off and drop yours to only $20 for $50! — Or UNLOCK10 to drop it to $15!

Note: The fine print says Groupon codes are not valid on this offer. I tried today’s code before reading that and it worked, but that may end at any time.

Costco

  • From SoapboxTray: “Seriously love their Kale salad in the bag. Yum. Easy prep. and like 4.99 for giant bag of deliciousness. They had a really great deal on Kraft cheese slices, I cannot recall the price but it too had an instant rebate. I bought one, we are freezing sandwiches and the kids can then grab them for lunches. I think it was 7.99 for 96 slices?”
  • And on the LED light bulb deal, from Susie: “Thanks that’s a great price on the light bulbs even if you have to pay taxes on the $14.99 price. My husband bought a 3 pack at menards for $14.99 because he wanted to see the difference between light bulbs and loved the way the foyer was brightly lit. However $14.99 is a lot of money, $2.99 is much better :)”

Amazon

  • On the Sharpie Stained permanent fabric markers sale on Amazon, Kari comments: “I got this on clearance at Target and they are AWESOME! I use them to touch up fading t-shirts with my kids favorite character. And they’re great for writing the kids names on “specials” white shirts for school and labeling gym shoes, etc.”

Food 4 Less

  • Karen asks: “I tried twice (Sunday and Wednesday) to pick up the Hormel Compleats at Food 4 Less. It would not come off. Are offers no longer going through there? I asked one of the employees and she said hers would not work either.” On the Friday freebie Kroger card deals — anyone know what happened here?

Groupon

  • On the cheap Wisconsin Dells Chula Vista deal, Jaci asks: “Never stayed there what is it comparable to?”
  • LovinSavin replies: “I just stayed there on Friday with my family of 5. Wish I would have had this price. I want to go back next year. I loved the water slides. The wave pool was small but had a beautiful outside area to order drinks and food. I liked that I was there during the 1/2 price time for appetizers and drinks. I enjoyed the outside walk area behind my hotel room, small but just enough to enjoy how nice the weather was for a short walk. Better selection than the water park I have near my house in Joliet so I was happy. I read that some people were not happy with the band aids that needed to be cleaned up. I did see them but I didn’t feel completely annoyed as the person who wrote that. Maybe since I have 3 boys as fast as I clean up one mess there seems to be another mess someplace else. I haven’t been to any other water parks in the dells in years so I don’t have any place to compare it to. I liked that it had 2 pools outside if you wanted to do that also. Seemed to me that you have a lot of different places enjoy if the weather is nice. Ordered pizza to our room which was nice to relax on the couch and watch tv channels that we don’t have at home.”

Lands’ End

  • If you’re picking up the cheap Lands’ End backpacks today, Wendy suggests: “And use the old backpack to store the extra super-cheap supplies you pick up, so you can find them in January when you need more but they’re not on sale.”

Mariano’s

  • Julie asks: “I love the fact that you can link your Mariano’s card to Ibotta.  However, it now seems like you have to have the product loaded before you check out.  I bought eggs the other day and didn’t check the app beforehand.  In the past I would have just loaded the deal at home after and then uploaded my receipt no problem.  I loaded the deal once I got home but nothing has happened as far as redeeming.  Do anyone know for sure if this is the case?  Thanks.” That would make sense — that’s how savingstar works etc. on card (or mymixx) stores like Jewel, you have to load before you redeem.

Meijer

meijeralways

  • From SmartShopper: “Went to Mayer on Friday morning. I tried the always discreet pads deal which started Thursday in the Thursday market stores. The liners that were $2.79 were not tagged for the deal. All pads that were $4.99 and higher were tagged with the deal. I purchased always discreet pads for $4.99. The $5.00 0YNO did NOT print at the register, despite the tagging on the shelf. Went to customer service and they gave me the five dollars back in cash. I used a two dollar manufacture coupon. This was a $2.01 moneymaker.” Note: These are NEW tags dated 8/13 (see dates on above photo), but the Catalina is not actually triggering on purchase.

Reader requests

  • Abby asks: “Recently shopped with thredup today. Does anyone know any other sites like this? I know that twice is now closed :(There’s Schoola — It’s aimed towards kids but also has some adult sizes in their high school section: http://www.mashupmom.com/free-15-childrens-clothing-from-schoola/ (old post — free shipping is not current but $15 new sign up credit is).
  • Comicbob asks: “Anyone see Maurice Lenell cookies I stock anywhere?”

Walgreens

  • From Kt: “Cheap eggs at Walgreens check your store for sell by date of August 13 my store in the Chicago suburbs was 99 cents a dozen”

chulavista

Super cheap Wisconsin Dells water park deal! Stay at Chula Vista starting at $69 a night (+ resort fees) AND you get a $25 dining credit. Look on the right by the dates and choose the “Villa Studio Suite” option. Thanks for this one to Elizabeth on Facebook. Dates into November!

  • Four daily water-park passes
  • $25 dining credit per stay for Kaminski Chophouse or Kilbourn City Grill

Where you’re going

At the family-friendly Chula Vista Resort, you’ll find an 80,000-square-foot indoor water park where you can splash down a high-speed water coaster or lie back and relax on a lazy river. With this deal, you get daily passes for four people. The water park will be closed 9/20/15–9/24/15 and 9/27/15–10/1/15. During this time, guests will have access to a water park at a nearby facility.

The resort enjoys a serene setting alongside the Wisconsin River. Visit the onsite Spa Del Sol, named one of the best boutique spas in Wisconsin by Milwaukee Magazine, for a hydrating body wrap or custom facial. There’s also an outdoor hot-springs whirlpool where you can unwind.

Head to any of several onsite dining venues for cuisine ranging from specialty pizzas to fresh seafood. This Getaway includes a $25 dining credit valid at Kaminski’s Chop House or Kilbourn City Grill.

Elizabeth commented

“I just booked Chula Vista in Wisconsin for $69 a night! I’ve never seen anything close that low. Plus, I got a $25 credit for the restaurant there. 3 nights was $207. It’s not advertised that low but I saw it on the calendar on Groupon. I was thinking it was a glitch so I booked it quick but it’s still there.”
