$29.99 Rebate For Sonicare Essence and Replacement Heads

Upon the recommendation from our dentist, we recently purchased a Sonicare toothbrush. When I registered it, I received an email with a rebate for up to $29.99.
$10 rebate on any future Philips Sonicare toothbrush purchase
One FREE brush head replacement (when you buy a multi-pack) – valued up to $19.99

The email states specifically that I may "give this form to a friend". So, if you plan to buy a Sonicare this long holiday weekend at CVS for a STEAL at $49.99, leave your email address in a comment and I will email you the form for the rebate. And, don't forget to use the $10 off coupon that came out in a recent Sunday paper insert. By the end of sale, coupons, and rebate, you'll get a $80 toothbrush for about $30.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Gift Card Savings

The holidays are a great time for buying and giving gift cards. Many places provide an incentive for purchasing gift cards around this time of year. I will make one caution before I continue: conusumer advocates are urging us to show caution in purchasing gift cards this holiday season because of the recent closures of so many businesses.

Now that I've done my civic duty, let me tell you about some deals that I am already aware of.

Brio Tuscan Grille is offering a $20 gift card that is good from 1/01/09-3/31-09 if you purchase a $100 gift card by the end of the year. My husband and I took advantage of this deal when we went there last night for our anniversary date. Awww!

Carrabba's, Outback Steakhouse, and Bonefish Grill are offering similar deals: $20 gift card with the purchase of a $100 gift card.

I was at Sports Authority recently and their promotion is for a $10 gift card free with the purchase of a $50 gift card and, in addition, the receiver of the gift card receives a coupon for 10% off when they redeem their coupon. Some restrictions apply.

Our family had lunch at Logan's recently and for purchasing a $25 gift card, we were given a $5 voucher for a future visit.

The moral of the story is, check around. So many places are offering incentives but be wary. Many of the incentives are good for a limited time into the new year and you may not be able to take advantage of them by the time they expire.

One other thing, I always ask the server to ring up the gift card you have to purchase as a separate transaction first. Then we use that gift card to pay for the meal we are eating right then and save the leftover to use with the incentive gift card. That way we get a jump on taking advantage of the various promotions.

Do you know of any establishments that have similar deals?

Stonewood Grill $10 Complimentary Certificate

Have you ever visited or wanted to visit Stonewood Grill and Tavern? Right now, they only have locations in Florida and North Carolina. You can click here to find the location nearest to you.

While dining there with my husband several months ago, I signed up to receive their Casual Flavors Magazine. It is BEAUTIFULLY done, but, even better, it comes with GREAT incentives.

Included in the issue I received this week are 2 awesome certificates:
  • a $10 complimentary Certificate to Stonewood Grill and Tavern, and
  • a $5 Complimentary Certificate to Peach Valley Café.
Now, I’ve not personally been to Peach Valley Café, but it can’t be half bad if it’s run by the same people that own Stonewood.

There are a couple great things about these certificates (as if it’s not great enough that they are giving free certificates out):
  • They are valid for a long time. The one I most recently received is valid until February 28, 2009.
  • An even greater thing is that you can use multiple certificates for a single visit.

You may wonder how one could obtain multiple certificates. Well, I have two ways of doing just that:

  • People sell them on ebay, and
  • We have a subscription sent to our home address as well as my husband’s work address since we haven’t found anywhere that states that you are only allowed to have one subscription per family or household.

So, hurry here to sign up for your subscription. Maybe we can meet there soon!

The Price is Right

Last week, I told you I only go to Salvation Army once a month. Well, here's proof otherwise. I really needed to find some jean skirts for Madeleine to go with some leggings she already owned. Also, a friend "invited" me to go with her, and I didn't want to disappoint her :). So, off I went.

This week I found 3 shirts for Jack including: one Hanes undershirt, one varsity t-shirt, and one Ralph Lauren short-sleeved, linen dress shirt

For Price, I found 3 shirts and one pair of plaid shorts.

For my stepson Adam, a long sleeved Abercrombie button up

For my stepdaughter Kathleen, a short sleeved American Eagle t-shirt

For Carmon (our daughter coming home from China), a hot pink Ralph Lauren tennis dress and a pair of Old Navy capri pants

As usual, Madeleine ends up with the most: 2 jean skirts (one from Old Navy and one from Justice), a pair of Levi jean shorts, a beautiful Sunday dress, a pair of warm-up pants from Old Navy, and 5 t-shirts (including a long-sleeved Ralph Lauren striped shirt, an Element t-shirt, 2 Junk Food t-shirts, and 1 t-shirt from Express)

Leave a comment with your best guess, and the winner will receive a rebate form for a

$10 gift check with the purchase of 4 boxes of Kellogg's cereal. Happy guessing!
