The Body Shop Coupon: $5 Off

July 16, 2013 by  
Filed under Shopping

Update: An even better deal at $10 off! Get $20 worth of Body Shop goodies for $10 using this limited time deal. This deal went live shortly after I posted about the Body Shop discount coupon below, but if you’re a fan of the Body Shop (or have gifts to buy as you can give this deal as a gift) then you’re better off with the half price deal.  The offer gives you $20 to spend in stores when you buy the Groupon certificate for $10, which as we can all work out is 50% savings.  You can buy up to 3 per person, and then spend the certificates by September 28, 2013.

If you missed that limited time and limited quantity offer, then continue on with the rest of this post to get $5 off a $25 purchase.

——————————————

Save on soaps, bath products, skincare, beauty and makeup with a Body Shop coupon to get $5 off, through July 2013.

I love The Body Shop, and am addicted to its Body Butters on through the dry days of summer. I especially like the original mango body butter and also the the satsuma – the fruity fragrances pep me up in the morning. The coconut one is lovely for summer as it always reminds me of the beach.  Either that or it makes me smell like a macaroon. Mr Cheap is too smart to tell me if it’s the latter.

Whatever you want to buy, print out this Body Shop coupon to get $5 off a purchase of $25 or more in stores through July 31, 2013.  You can also get the coupon at this page and click the link that says (surprise, surprise) ‘Click here for a printable coupon.’

Although the coupon is offered courtesy of the Coronado Center, the fine print says it is valid at all participating United States Body Shop locations.

The offer is for one coupon per customer, for purchases in stores only, not online. It can’t be used to buy gift cards,  you’ve got to buy actual product – which is never a problem for me. It also can’t be combined with any other promotions or offers. However, if you are a member of the Love Your Body program, the Body Shop coupon can be used with the Love Your Body membership discount.

The Body Shop sells skincare, soaps and bath products, fragrances, makeup and other beauty products… all those delicious things. From the skincare ranges, I like their Vitamin C moisturizer. It goes on very smoooothly and truly makes me look 19 again. Sorry, did I say 19? Looking in the mirror today, maybe I meant 91.

Comments Off on The Body Shop $5 Off Coupon

$5 off at The Body Shop? Yum! I love The Body Shop and all the bath goodies, soaps, makeup, and skin care products. I’m especially addicted to its Body Butters. The original mango body butter is a favorite and also the satsuma – the fruity fragrances pep me up in the morning.  In summer I use the coconut Body Butter, because it reminds me of suntan lotions, so I always feel like I’m heading to the beach. (Ha! Beach in New Mexico. Tingley Beach isn’t quite what I had in mind for my bikini.)

If you’re Body Shop shopping, print out this Body Shop coupon to get $5 off a purchase of $25 through April 30, 2013. Although the coupon is offered courtesy of the Coronado Center, it’s valid at all US Body Shop locations.

The offer is for one discount coupon per customer, for purchases in stores only, not online.

25% Off New Jeans In Exchange For Your Used Jeans

February 4, 2013 by  
Filed under Charity Events, Shopping

This is the kind of deal I like: It saves you money and warms your heart – or warms your buns in this case. Donate a pair of jeans to help an Albuquerque area homeless shelter or charity, and receive 25% off a new pair.

Aéropostale’s sixth annual Teens for Jeans campaign gives you 25% off new jeans, when you drop off your own gently worn jeans at one of their stores by February 10, 2013.  (Don’t take the Dropping Off part too literally – it’s probably best not to wear them TO the store.)

Jeans can be any brand and any size (larger sizes are definitely in demand in shelters) but all should be in good condition. As a reward for your good deed, you get 25% off a new pair at Aéropostale.

You can donate more than one pair, and you’ll receive a 25% discount coupon for each pair.  They’re not taking any other clothing donations – this deal is just jeans!  Aéropostale distributes the jeans to a local homeless shelter or charity in their network. The overall aim is to help homeless teens, but you don’t have to be a teen to join in.

Start sorting out your closet! Teens for Jeans runs till February 10, 2013, and this is a national promotion at all stores. Take your jeans to Albuquerque Aéropostale stores at Coronado Center and Cottonwood Mall.

If you want to contribute but don’t care about the discount, you can also donate your jeans at Albuquerque BioPark  during business hours. Leave your old jeans in one of the collection boxes at the administration offices at the Albuquerque Zoo or the Aquarium and Botanic Garden. (No need to pay the BioPark admission just to drop items off at the offices.) Los Lunas Middle School is leading that denim drive and depending on how many pairs of jeans they collect they could also win funds for the school.

Free Interior Design Advice at Kirklands Opening

October 2, 2012 by  
Filed under Shopping

The Kirkland’s home decor and gifts store debuts in Albuquerque, with a grand opening this weekend October 6 and 7, 2012.

I’d never heard of Kirkland’s before they sent me a press release, but that may not be surprising as although they have more than 300 stores nationwide, the new Albuquerque location at the Coronado Center is the first in New Mexico. I scoped out the Kirkland’s website and they sell all kinds of decorative items including furniture, home accents such as lamps, mirrors, clocks, bedding, and table linens, plus gifts and seasonal goods – tons of Halloween goodies right now of course.

So why am I telling you about this? They’re doing some fun stuff at the Kirkland’s Grand Opening on Saturday and Sunday October 6 and 7, 2012, including free design consultations.

Local interior designer Deborah Smith will be on hand both days from 1 – 4 pm to give free personalized design advice. Take floor plans or photos of the rooms you’re decorating for the design consultation. I guess you could just do a jolly good job of describing the space (much gesturing of hands and disagreement with the spouse over exactly where the window is and how you’d define purple… believe me, I’ve been there) but a snapshot or other image will probably be most helpful. Smith is the owner of Cornerstone Interiors, and has been featured on HGTV.com’s Designers’ Portfolio.

Kirkland’s will also be giving away free sachets with purchase while supplies last, and two $50 gift cards. To enter for the free gift cards drawing, register at the store, no purchase required, and you don’t need to be present to win when they draw the winners on October 7 at 4 pm.

Albuquerque Kirkland’s Grand Opening takes place:

  • When: Saturday and Sunday October 6 and 7, 2012
  • Time: Saturday 10 am to 9 pm, Sunday 12 noon to 6 pm
  • Free Design Consultations with Deborah Smith: Both days from 1 to 4 pm
  • Where: Kirkland’s store, Coronado Center, 6600 Menaul Boulevard NE.

Free Haircuts for Kids

Comments Off on Free Haircuts for Kids

Here are two ways to get a free haircut for kids this month, just in time for back-to-school. If you know of any other kids’ freebies, tell us in the comment box below or drop me an email.

I’ve heard rumor that hair is supposed to grow faster in summer. Whether that’s true or not, these freebies are a snip to save dollars on kids’ haircuts before their bangs grow so long they’re walking into furniture.

Get a free haircut for kids at JCP Salons in the month of August 2012, for children in grades K – 6.  No coupon is needed, just make an appointment in stores or call 855-JCP-KIDS and mention the free haircut deal. (And please remember to tip even though the cut is free! The stylist will love you for it.) In Albuquerque, JCP Salons are in the JC Penney Stores at Cottonwood Mall and Coronado Center.

Underprivileged children can get a free haircut at the Kutz for Kidz Back to School event on August 12, 2012, as well as free school supplies!  (Advance registration required.) The Albuquerque Police Department teams up with local hairdressers to give children a professional free haircut, as well as backpacks, and school supplies. They also give kids a chance to meet law enforcement officers with demonstrations of APD’s Specialized Units. What’s more they’ll serve free drinks and BBQ hamburgers and hotdogs, and host appearances from UFC fighters and local athletes. Good for the APD for putting this together, and to the hairdressers volunteering their time!

Note that you need to register in advance for Kutz for Kidz and the free event is for underprivileged kids and youth. We have no information on what qualifies as underprivileged, or any age limits, but contact information is at their website. Kutz for Kidz is on Sunday August 12 from from 9 am to 6 pm at the APD Training Academy, 5412 2nd Street NW.

Free UFC Tour Event & Meet UFC Fighter: January 7

Comments Off on Free UFC Tour Event & Meet UFC Fighter: January 7

The UFC Octagon Nation Tour arrives in Albuquerque on January 7 2012, with a chance to meet UFC fighter Leonard Garcia in a free event.

I had a bit of an ultimate fight championship with Mr Cheap one day over the holidays. That was totally free too, but it all ended happily enough with pumpkin pie.

This is the REAL thing: The UFC Octagon Nation Tour is in Albuquerque this Saturday January 7 from
4 – 8 pm, in a free event at Sears parking lot in the Coronado Center.

Visitors to the Albuquerque UFC tour leg can meet Leonard Garcia, a professional featherweight UFC fighter, with accolades including UFC Fight of the Night against Nam Phan last October. His next fight is against Tiequan Zhang at UFC 144 Japan in February, so you can get his autograph on Saturday and wish him luck for the fight!

You can also see rare UFC memorabilia in the Octagon Nation Tour truck, try the UFC gaming station featuring the Xbox Kinect UFC Trainer Experience, and compete against other UFC fans at the event with the HDNet punch strength station, and the fitness test circuit with weigh-in, high jump, and pull-up contests.

It all sounds very vigorous, and just writing this makes me want a nice lie-down with another slice of pumpkin pie.

Albuquerque UFC Octagon Nation Tour

  • When: Saturday January 7, 2012
  • Time: 4 – 8 pm
  • Where: Sears parking lot in the Coronado Center, 6600 Menaul Boulevard NE
  • Admission: Free!

I can’t find a web link to give you for this event, the details arrived by press release. But you can see more general info about the UFC Octagon Nation Tour.
