Lots of vehicle related safety measures are important at this time of year such as good tires, anti-freeze levels where they should be and good, clean wiper blades. Buy Rain-X Expert Fit or Latitude wiper blades at Walmart through Nov. 30 and use the rebate form available in today’s Times Leader’s glossy coupons and get a $5, $10 or $15 Walmart giftcard mailed to you. make sure you follow the rebate directions and requirements, including having the request postmarked by Dec. 16.
If your household is like mine, batteries always seem to be in need. If that’s the case, head to discount grocery store Aldi starting on Wednesday and get a 24-pack of ActiveEnergy brand AA or AA batteries for $2.99. While there grab a dozen large Goldenhen eggs for 89 cents.
Family Dollar stores has all toys priced at $5 or higher on a buy-one, get-one half sale this week. Combine that offer with the $5 off a $25 or greater purchase coupon in the store’s circular and you can really load up on holiday gifts and stocking stuffers.
Speaking of toys, check out Target’s huge toy gift guide in today”s Times Leader. In addition to dozens of sales being promoted, there are also more than $100 in coupons enclosed inside the booklet. They include percent-off and $5-off coupons for items like Apple iPods, and products from Lego, Barbie and Fisher Price. Toy booklets from Walmart and Toys R Us are also found inside today’s Times Leader, each filled with sale items sure to make both kids and parents smile.
The gift card bonus card offers are typically rolled out around Black Friday for holiday season but some eateries are starting early including Smokey Bones, which will give you a $5 bonus card good next January for every $25 in gift card purchases made Monday through Dec. 29.
There are so many coupons in today’s Times Leader the purchase of this newspaper will pay itself off over and over again if you use those glossy gifts of gold. And Price Chopper has two coupon doublers in its circular today so those $1 coupons will become $2 off when combined with the Price Chopper offer.
I would suggest using one on the $1 off five cans of Swanson chicken or beef broth. The cans are on sale five for $3. After the coupon doubles get five cans for $1.
