Comments Off on Thrift Town 50% Off Clothing Sale

Score big savings on new-to-you clothes at Thrift Town on Friday November 30, at their 50% off clothing Holiday SaleHalf price gear as we go into party season sounds pretty good to me, or as an opportunity to find a few extra winter warmers.

I need to check in there to see if they have a blender, seeing as Thrift Town is always a good bet for kitchen equipment and Mr Cheap has just about decimated our old one, blending nuts by the look of it. Wingnuts rather than pistachios. OK, so it’s not clothing but it’s hard to go in there for just one item. I’m always distracted to buy some other treasure I find.

If you miss the Friday sale, don’t forget that every Monday night through December 17, 2012, from 6 – 9 pm, Thrift Town is offering 30% off clothing in their Monday Night Football Sale.

That’s adult clothing, kids’ clothing, women’s clothing, suits, skirts, jackets, coats, ties, you name it.

Both sales are for clothing only, and exclude gift cards and already-reduced Color Tag items. 

And for a holiday gift (or just for your own savings if you shop there often) for every $20 worth of Thrift Town gift cards you buy, they’re handing out a set of bonus coupons for $20 of savings.  The offer is good till December 31, 2012, while supplies last.

Also note that Seniors aged 60+ get 30% off clothing at Thrift Town all day every Monday.  You can’t combine the senior discount with any other promo.

Pick up a Thrift Town Super Shopper card while you’re in the store. You get a stamp for every $10 you spend, and once the card is full with 20 stamps, you earn $10 off your next $20+ purchase.

The Thrift Town Albuquerque store is at 3900 Menaul Blvd NE.

Half Off Papa Johns Gift Card

September 24, 2012 by  
Filed under Food, Restaurants & Bars

Save 50% on pizza at Domino’s and Papa John’s, plus half off The Children’s Place, iTunes, Staples, CVS, Dunkin Donuts and more…

Save 50% on pizza with this half price Papa John’s gift card at $5 for a $10 gift card, available in a limited time deal. The offer is for first-time Saveology customers only and quantities are limited. (If a box appears asking for your email address and you only want to see the deal first, not sign up, just click the screen outside the box and it goes away! And if you are asked to select a city in the ordering process, select National, as this is a national deal.)

They’ve also added some new deals or brought back some popular ones that sold out before, all for first-time Saveology customers:

Customers who’ve bought Saveology deals before can get the $7.50 for $15 Saveology Dollars deal. It’s available for both new Saveology customers and those who are repeat customers, and for $7.50 you get $15 worth of credit to spend on other deals at Saveology.com. So it’s basically free money!

Saveology has been turning out some very good national deals lately, although many have been for first-time customers only. I’m just reporting my favorite ones to you, but you can see all the national Saveology deals available, including the ones for returning customers, by following any of the above links and then checking in the deals menu at the  site.

Make sure you read the fine print for all the details on redeeming each offer, then either use the card or deal yourself or give it as a gift.

Tania FYI – I’ve given you my Saveology affiliate links to plug you direct to the deals.

Don’t Forget To Use Your Gift Cards

January 30, 2012 by  
Filed under General, Restaurants & Bars, Shopping

Gift cards are always a popular holiday gift, and we posted lots of gift card deals here at ABQ on the Cheap before Christmas. 

But I was surprised (horrified!) to read in The Consumerist that an estimated $2 billion worth of gift cards will go unredeemed this year.

And according to Consumer Reports in December 2011, their holiday poll found that 25% of gift card recipients from the 2010 holidays still had an unused gift card kicking around – a whole year later!

I like saving things up for a special occasion, but that’s beyond even my squirrel instincts :-)

A gift card is basically the same as free money to spend, but, unlike money, a gift card may expire. Or (in the current economic climate) a business can even go under before you’ve had a chance to redeem the card. And of course, you can also lose it, or just forget about it.  Plus, the longer you wait to spend it, the less it might get you, seeing as prices tend to go up, not down.

So, if you received a gift card or gift certificate, check if it has an expiry date, and consider this a friendly reminder to use it!

If you don’t like the gift card restaurant or retailer, and can’t think of anyone to regift it to, maybe think about selling or bartering the card at Albuquerque Craigslist.

Thrift Town 30% Off Everything Sale

Comments Off on Thrift Town 30% Off Everything Sale

It’s the National Regifting Day Sale at Thrift Town on Friday December 16. I have to confess that I do sometimes regift, although I always feel terribly guilty about it, and have a terror of the original giver finding out. I don’t want to hurt their feelings, but if I know someone else will use and enjoy a gift more than I do, I’ll pass it on…

The only gift I have to pass on to you right now is the news that you get 30% off everything in the Thrift Town sale on Friday December 16, 2011. That’s everything from clothes to household items and appliances, and whatever other treasures you discover.  Note that the sale excludes gift cards and already-discounted Color Tag items, and you can’t use coupons on sale day. 

I was just in the shop and it was jam-packed with goodies – although I was unlucky on getting the right size for anything. The purple shirt I tried on looked more illegal than regal, and the cute little slow cooker I fancied turned out to be just that bit too cute and little.

If you miss the Friday sale, there’s still time to get 30% off clothing in the Thrift Town Monday Night Football Sale, every Monday night through December 26, 2011, from 6 – 8 pm,

For a holiday gift (or just for your own savings if you shop there often) for every $20 worth of gift cards you buy, they’re handing out a set of bonus coupons for $20 of savings.  The offer is good till December 31, 2011, while supplies last. Buy Thrift Town Gift Cards in the store or online.

Comments Off on CVS 20% Off

CVS online sale for $10 off $50 and free shipping to November 20, or take the Facebook quiz for a 20% off shopping pass.  Plus free gift cards with purchase for CVS ExtraCare card holders.

I was browsing the CVS website to see if they had any deals on skin care and moisturizers (my skin feels a tad prune-like right now) when I spotted this sale. Through Sunday November 20, 2011, until 9:59 pm Mountain Time,  the CVS Give and Get deals gives $10 off when you spend $50 or more, and free shipping with the promo code: SHIPITFREE

That’s a 20% saving! The offer is only for online shopping for nonprescription orders, and it runs until 9:59 pm Mountain Time (11:59 pm Eastern) on Sunday November 20. 

If you’re a member of Facebook, the CVS Facebook page has an offer to get a 20% off shopping pass. You have to like their page and complete a What Type of Shopper Are You? quiz using a Facebook App to get the 20% off pass. I haven’t done the quiz so I don’t know what the terms of that deal are, or how long it will last. And I know what type of shopper I am…. CHEAP!

On Monday November 21 at the CVS Every Monday is Cyber Monday page, a Shop & Save sale offers items including a iPod Touch 3rd Generation Travel Bundle 11 Piece Accessory Kit ($50 off at $199.99). The sale features different items every Monday until Christmas. 

Finally, CVS is also giving a free $10 gift card to customers with an ExtraCare card who spend $30 on selected products in stores – up to five free gift cards a week! The items (from detergent to beauty products) change weekly and are marked in the store, or you can see the featured products in the CVS weekly ad. If these items are already on your shopping list, it’s a great way to get ten bucks worth of gift card, or just keep watching for the marked products next week!

The free $10 gift card choices vary, but have included cards for CVS/pharmacy (of course), plus Macy’s, Gap, Applebee’s, Shell Stations, American Express, and Barnes & Noble. There is a limit of five free $10 gift cards per customer per week.

There are at least nine Albuquerque CVS/pharmacy stores.

Get $5 worth of freebies for kids in the CVS/pharmacy Halloween Costume Party, plus a free $10 gift card for select purchases.

CVS/pharmacy is calling this a “spooktacular” customer appreciation event. It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who makes lousy puns :-)

At the CVS Halloween party on Sunday October 23, 2011, take your child wearing a Halloween costumes to CVS and make any purchase, and your child receives a free Halloween gift pack. According to the press release, the gift pack contains:

  • $5 worth of candy, toys, trick or treat safety items
  • $10 in coupons for Halloween products

In addition, you can also get a free 5″x7″ photo of your child in costume. The times of the in-store costume photo shoot will vary by location, so you’ll have to check with your local CVS store.

The free gift bags are available while supplies last, so I’d get to the store sooner rather than later on Sunday.

The CVS/pharmacy Halloween Party is planned for all locations nationally.

In an ongoing deal, CVS is also giving a free $10 gift card to customers spending $30 on selected products. The items (from detergent to beauty products) change each week and are marked in the store. If these items are already on your shopping list, it’s a great way to get ten bucks worth of gift card, or just keep watching for the marked products next week!

Thanks to Teresa at Miami on the Cheap for tipping us off to the free gift for kids at the party!
