Are you a member of AAA, the American Automobile Association? Lots of people know that it’s great if your car has a problem and you need to be towed. One tow can pay for the membership. What a lot of people don’t realize is that many businesses also offer discounts to AAA members. If you visit the AAA website you’ll find hundreds of businesses that offer discounts ranging from 5 to 35% if you’re a AAA member.

I’ve found a site that lists free offers. The site is called Hey It’s Free. I expected to find only free items on the site but I also found coupons and hot deals. The site is free to use and no registration is required. The layout and appearance are simple and easy to understand. (How could I say otherwise when it’s running onna theme almost identical to this one? LOL) So, add this to your list of sites to check when looking for freebies and deals.
We could use a new set of outdoor furniture but they can be pretty expensive unless you catch them on sale. I usually see sets on sale twice a year, sometime in April and sometime in September. The best trick I’ve learned to getting something like this is to decide what I want and may be willing to settle for. Then I save up however much I’m willing to spend on it and put it away until I find what I’m looking for at that price. The last set we bought was a wicker set. We bought it in about 1996 or so from a store named Rickel’s, when it was going out of business. It was a loveseat and two chairs and cost us under $100.
This Wednesday night, 04/29/09, Baskin-Robbins will be holding it’s Third Annual 31 Cent Scoop Night from 5 pm to 10 pm. All 2.5 ounce scoops of ice cream will be priced at just 31 cents! A number of Baskin-Robbins locations will have local firefighters on hand to scoop the ice cream and provide fire safety tips as well. Baskin-Robbins is partnering with the National Volunteer Fire Council and donating $100,000 to support the National Junior Firefighter Program. So go get a scoop for a steal and support fire safety and education as well!
I stopped in Target yesterday for a couple of items. We ran out of canned cat food yesterday and my cats eat a mixture of canned and dry every day so I decided to grab a couple of cans to hold us over until the weekend. In the cat aisle I found one whole line of cat nip toys on clearance. I bought one. If the cats like it I might go back tomorrow and see if they have more. My cats are so funny when they’ve been around catnip – they get silly and jump around so much that they look like they might be able to leap tall steel buildings in a single bound. I don’t know if this sale was at all Targets or not but wanted to share with you in case it is.
If you’re looking to do some online shopping and want to save some money check out FreeShipping.org. FreeShipping is a site that offers free shipping coupons and coupon codes for many stores. Shoppers can browse by store, category, codes expiring soon and the most recent. I saw many popular stores and products on the site, about the only thing that I didn’t see there was term life insurance. If you’re looking to save some money make sure to check here when you’re looking.
I recently got an email that Amazon has another venture called Warehouse Deals. The email said the site’s been up and running since 2004 but I’d never heard of it. Warehouse Deals offers open box, refurbished and slightly damaged merchandise. The pricing is said to be less than what the items are regularly on Amazon and great features such as free super saver shipping are available. Apparently the deals are also on Amazon at the same prices but this is just a site offering them all in one easy to find place. If a deal’s not in stock you’ll be offered an opportunity to buy the new version of it on Amazon at the Amazon price.
Amazon has Frontline flea and tick products on a super sale.
A box of Merial Frontline Top Spot Flea and Tick Control for Cats and Kittens, 3 Doses is regularly $55.00 and is on sale for $18.30. It qualifies for free super saver shipping.
A box of Merial Frontline Top Spot Flea and Tick Control for Cats and Kittens, 6 Doses is regularly $100.00 and is on sale for $33.40. It also qualifies for free super saver shipping.
If you’ve never used Frontline before, it’s one of the most recommended, if not the most recommended flea and tick control products that vets recommend. It’s easy to use, you just open the package and apply the contents to the cat’s skin between their shoulder blades. One dose protects for a month.

Thanks to the Consumer Queen for these!
With the economy being terrible and our family suffering from the incredible shrinking income we’re trying to cut back and save money wherever possible. This includes using more coupons when grocery shopping whenever possible. We get the newspaper on Sundays and I won’t be waiting a week or two to go through the coupons any more. It’s a shame how many have been expired and gone to waste because I took so long to go through them. One tip for cutting coupons, turn off any ceiling fans before beginning or the coupons will blow right off of the table. I’ll also be looking for more printable coupons online. I am going to organize my coupons somehow, I think I’ll start with a big coupon wallet and see how that goes. It’s got to be an improvement over the big envelope that I’ve been using. I’ll also be trying to hang on to coupons to make the best use of them by pairing them with sales. So. Do you have any coupon tips to share?
