Until November 23rd you can print out this coupon for a free reusable bag at Staples. But wait, there’s more. Whatever you can fit into that reusable bag during your trip to Staples, you will get a 15% discount on its purchase. Note: coupon link goes to PDF on the Freebie Shark site, for which I can thank for a heads up on this deal. (Go Blue!)

5 Tips to Negotiate on Holiday Gift Purchases

November 22, 2011
By

With gas and food costs rising this holiday, your budget may not stretch as far as you need it to. While the slow economy isn’t good news, it could work in your favor. Charles Lankau, a business professor and expert in negotiation at Wake Forest University, says consumers should be assertive about asking for discounts when shopping for just about everything this holiday season. (You may recall that I’d included Dr. Lankau’s tips in a similar negotiation post back in September. Much of the same advice applies, though he’s tweaked it for the holidays.) You might find retailers and...

Gift Cards Hot Holiday Gift Option

November 21, 2011
By

The National Retail Federation released results of its gift-buying survey today, and no surprise, gift cards came out on top as a holiday gift of choice. According to the survey, eight in 10 Americans plan to give a gift card as a holiday gift this year–up from nearly seven in 10 people last year. I know that gift cards make great teacher gifts, and, in my opinion, are always the right option for picky teenagers. (When in doubt go with an iTunes gift card.) However, if your budget is tight this year, you may be wondering how you can...

Extreme Couponing at CVS

As you know from past posts about what I’ve learned from watching “Extreme Couponing“ and my ability to extreme coupon at CVS, I am a devout CVS shopper. It helps that CVS is the only convenient pharmacy-like store to where I live–within walking distance and around the corner from my daughters’ school. Last month I shared with you about how I was beginning to build my shampoo and conditioner stockpile, thanks to extreme savings at CVS. Well, those extreme savings are back. This week CVS has marked down VO5 shampoo and conditioner to $.77 a bottle again–with a limit...
