    And as a related tangent, Staples has free after rewards batteries, limit 2 packs per week, EVERY WEEK til the end of the year.

    This week, they also have a GC deal, buy a Staples GC of $50 or more, get a $10 bonus GC. The bonus GC will only be good 1/2-1/14.

    Now, if you grab the free after rewards batteries, and pay with the $50 GC this week, and then grab more free after rewards batteries with the remainder of the GC next week, when the rewards issue AT THE BEGINNING OF JANUARY you can use your rewards and your bonus GC to get something.

    I appreciate not all of you oogle office supplies the way I oogle office supplies. I'm figuring all those rewards will put a nice dent in a new office chair, or a new binder, or some more sturdy dividers for my binder, or more baseball card sheets, or something.

    sewhunt, pop in to Staples. They're having a rebate deal on gift cards through 12/10. I did not write down all the retailers, but iTunes was one and I though there was something sporty in there too. The deal is you buy $100 worth of participating cards, and you get to submit a $10 rebate.

    Also, if you're a BJs member, they sell iTunes GCs for less than face value everyday. I seem to recall they're around 10% off.

    Oooo, and if the ad scans I've seen are accurate, there's a GC deal coming, I think next week, at CVS. iTunes have a deal, and a collection of other cards have a deal. My memory stinks, I know DSW was in there, The Limited maybe, don't remember what others.

    There's always places like Plastic Jungle too.

    ducrejmd, we don't read barcodes around here. What matters is the text of the coupon.

  • Mz.Jen Nov 30, 2011

    I would like to ask a question don't know if this has been asked before. Is it true that a coupon that has the #76 on the coupon can be used for any product from that Company?

    Carelesswhisper - I gave your question about teacher gifts a thread of its own because there are lots of people who are probably asking the same question and I don't want it to get lost in this thread. Great question!

    best buy has an itunes deal if you have a reward zone account with's not a great deal, but it's something: 10% off on a $30 Apple® iTunes multipack. These iTunes Gift Cards make it easy to give music, movies, apps, audiobooks, games and more to the special people on your gift list.

    What is a good gift to get for daycare teachers?

    Steph - I don't have a food saver at all and find that my frozen foods keep just fine for months if I wrap them in foil and put them in a freezer bag. You may want to get a couple value packs of the chicken breast from Lowes Foods at this price.

    Thanks for the Gymboree info. :-)

    I would love to buy a bunch of chicken breasts & freeze them, but my darn foodsaver hasn't come and now they are saying it is backordered! BOO! Oh well, I can get at least one package and regular freeze them. :)

    Gymboree has an AWESOME sale on all tops including outerwear -- my mom bought my girls new vests (super cute dark purple with white fur trimmed hoods) for $17 after the 50% off and she had a 20% off coupon! I know most people don't believe me, but I can get clothes cheaper there than Target when combining great sales with a coupon! :)
