Comments Off on Sierra Club Discount and Free Backpack

Sierra Club membership usually starts at $25 per person, but if you join online right now, they’re giving discounted membership at the special offer price of $15, plus you get a free Sierra Club  backpack. The rugged backpack looks perfect for expeditions into the wilderness, and to contain all your sandwiches and chips.  (Because after all, the whole point of a hike is the PICNIC!)

The Discounted Sierra Club Membership also includes a year’s subscription to Sierra magazine, plus membership in your local Chapter (the Sierra Club Rio Grande Chapter, or there are others in New Mexico if you’re an out-of-town reader). Members also get discounts with partner businesses including Pharmaca, Columbia sportswear, and Whirlpool Outlet appliances, and discounts on Sierra Club goods including books and calendars. I’m not sure how long the Sierra Club special offer membership deal is available, so join fast if you’re interested.

The Sierra Club works to protect America’s wild and untamed places, and we have plenty of those around here. My fridge would probably qualify right now with all the Christmas leftovers stacked in it.

Bookworks and Page One Holiday Deals

Book Coupon Page OneA Page One bookstore coupon and a Bookworks gift with purchase make holiday shopping a little easier on the pocket!

As a writer and avid reader I’m always keen to support initiatives to help people read more. And I’m especially keen to support our local owned independent bookstores…. especially when we save money too.

Print out this Page One coupon to save $5 on any $30 purchase until December 31, 2011.  It could come in handy if you’re shopping for yourself, or if you’re looking for holiday gifts, and it’s valid on both new and used purchases.

For Albuquerque on the Cheap readers with a smart phone or other internet enabled doohickey, you don’t even have to use the Page One printable coupon. Just show it on your “web capable mobile device” to the cashier to get the $5 discount.

Over at Bookworks, they’re giving a free gift with purchases this holiday season. Spend $50-75 and receive a free copy of Christmas in New Mexico to keep or give. When you spend $75-100, the freebie is the Book Lover’s 2012 Desk Calendar. Shop for more than $125, and they’ll give you both gifts! Bookworks also offer free gift-wrapping on request.

I think I’ve had that Book Lover’s calendar before, or one very like it. I really enjoyed that calendar, and I need to add it to my Christmas wish list.  If I don’t plan in advance, I end up buying a calendar…. oooh, about February, when the only choices left are the ones nobody else wants (and usually for a reason).

Page One Bookstore is located at 11018 Montgomery NE.

Find Bookworks at 4022 Rio Grande Blvd NW, next to Flying Star Cafe.

Shop Til You Rock: August 13

Comments Off on Shop Til You Rock: August 13

Shop Til You Rock comes to Coronado Center on Saturday, August 13, 2011 with free music concerts, games and prizes for teens, and (if you spend enough money) a free Shop Etc. gift card.

Shop Til You Rock is a series of events across the country aimed at teens. It’s coming to Albuquerque this Saturday August 13, from 1 pm – 6 pm in the Sears Court at the Coronado Center.  Although they’re vague on the details, we gather that it includes prizes, games, special deals, and possibly fashion events, as well as free music concerts at 1 pm and 5 pm by I Am Cassettes and Dustin Cavazos, with the opportunity to meet the performers after they’ve done their thang.

For anyone (teens, or someone like me who knows she was a teenager once but has long forgotten where I put  it) they’re giving away a free $20 Shop Etc. gift card when you spend $150 at the Coronado Center mall during the Shop Til You Rock event. Plus there’s a bonus gift of a year’s free subscription to Family Circle or Parents magazine. Both the gift card and the magazine subcriptions are while supplies last, so shop earlier rather than later, methinks.

To claim your free gift card, you need to take shopping receipts to the sum of $150 or more, dated August 13 from any Coronado Center store, to the Shop Til You Rock event between 1 pm and 6 pm.

The Coronado Center free gift card offer excludes receipts for bill payments (well, YES!) and is limited to one free card per person.

The Shop Etc. Gift Card can be used at most retailers and restaurants that accept American Express cards.
