Get a $20 Amazon Gift Card for $10, today only, Wednesday January 19 2011. (Although it runs into the early hours of Thursday morning.)
This is a one-day deal: you pay $10 and get a $20 Amazon gift card. In other words, you get a totally free $10 to spend at Amazon. You can use it on any Amazon purchase: books, electronics, music, Kindle, household stuff, you name it. Unfortunately, the tiny type says you can only buy one per person (drat).
The Half Price Amazon Gift Card offer is offered in all national cities via Living Social. We don’t know if there’s a cap on quantities available, but sometimes there’s a cut-off point with this kind of mega promo – over 680,000 people nationally have already snapped up this shopping deal! Yikes. So buy sooner rather than later. Otherwise, the deal runs all day today, January 19.
The card does not have an expiry date. I’m not sure how long I could wait to use it though – I’m going to buy mine straight after writing this post. I need a new headset for my phone and have been putting it off, but as I’ll get $10 off using this deal, there’s no excuse to wait any longer!
–Tania FYI - I’ve given you my Living Social affiliate link. If you plan to take advantage of this deal and feel like sending a little love this way to help support ABQ on the Cheap, please use the links. Thanks!

It’s not just the weekend. It’s Labor Day weekend!! Let’s rock the holiday with some cheap eats in the Q.
- BOGO Breakfast and Lunch or Dinner: Use these Sweet Tomatoes coupons for buy-one-get-one-free meals and breakfasts. But hurry. The BOGO meal coupon expires 9/6/09. The BOGO breakfast coupon is good until 9/27/09. Valid only with adult meals and requires purchase of two beverages. Two locations: east side and west side.

There’s one Dickey’s in Albuquerque and one in Las Cruces.
- Half Price Native Fusion Cuisine: The Pueblo Harvest Cafe at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center may be one of those places the locals are aware of but have never actually patronized. If so, here’s your chance to check it out for half price. Purchase one $25 dining certificate and get a second one FREE! This would be a great treat for out-of-town guests during Balloon Fiesta, or just keep the savings all to yourself. Trust us when we tell you the duck quesadillas are primo. The Pueblo Harvest Cafe is located in the north valley.
- Half Price New Mexican Food: Here’s a shout-out to our friends in Los Lunas. Buy a $20 gift certificate to Guadalupe’s New Mexican Restaurant for just $10! Now that’s cheap chow. Homemade tortilla chips and some of the best chile around. Certificate valid through 12/31/09, so you have plenty of time to spend it. Located near the Rail Runner station in Los Lunas.

- $5 off Pizza and Stuff: We are unabashed fans of Pizza 9, so when we saw this Valpak coupon, we scarfed it up. Use this $5 off coupon for a discount on any menu item. Our fave? The 9″ thin crust ground beef, onion, and tomato pizza. But the thick crust is good, too, and they offer a selection of gourmet pizzas, like BBQ chicken. Pizza 9 is new to the Q, and each shop is locally owned. Try them for cheap! This coupon is valid only at the Louisiana location.
- FREE Cup of Coffee: Try a small cup of flavor brewed coffee compliments of Seattle’s Best. Use this coupon to try Vanilla Creme, Cinnamon Swirl, or Hazelnut for free!
