Awesome Hallmark deal - Free Greeting card

I'm so excited. I just finished making my personalized Hallmark card. You can pick from any of the cards on their website. You personalize the card for your occasion. You can either have Hallmark send the card to you or they will mail it directly to the recipient. Go to the website here, and use the promo code TRIAL.

I decided to make a card for my Father-in-law's birthday. Hallmark had special NFL birthday cards, and as he is an avid Dallas Cowboys fan I couldn't resist making the Cowboys card for him. The only problem is that his birthday isn't for a couple of weeks. I thought I was going to have to send the card to myself and then mail it off to him. Inevitably, I would receive it and it would gradually fall down my to-do-list until it was after his birthday. But thanks to the fine people at Hallmark, they allow you to schedule when the card should be mailed. I completed my purchase $3.49 for the card and $0.42 for shipping. The total was $3.91. I entered the promo code TRIAL and the amount was back down to $0. That's right, I didn't have to enter a credit card or even have to pay for a stamp. Yea!!! A free birthday card.

Potager - Pay what you think your lunch was worth

A new restaurant opened in Arlington, TX, Potager. It has only been open a couple of months and I typically wouldn't be excited to head off to Arlington, but I am intrigued by Potager. The restaurant is based on gourmet fresh organic meals and draws comparisons to One World Cafe in Salt Lake City. Basically, the ever-changing menu is prepared and customers are served as much as they can eat. At the end of your meal you fill an envelope with the amount you feel the meal was worth. This is a very interesting concept, especially with the economy the way it is. The restaurant is getting about $7 for each individual meal and currently only serving lunch. Here's a link for more info.
I love helping out good independent restaurants and am excited to try this one. The concept is a little difficult for me to understand, as I am sure there are people who pay very very little to nothing at all (especially as they are located by a college campus), but I'm excited to try it out and be one of the customers who rewards a good meal. Anyone interested in lunch???

Dillard's handbag trade-in event

Dillard's is having their annual handbag trade-in event. (Apparently Coach is included, but I have yet to try out this specific deal yet, so I can't confirm). Here's the basics:
1. Clean out your old purse and donate it at your local Dillards.
2. In return you can receive up to $50. The $50 off is based on the purchase of a wallet or purse over $200. Not to worry, if you want a cheaper purse you can save on that too, but the cheapest purse you can get and still save is $50-$75 which will allow you to get $15 off.
Read here for all the details.

Some New Deals

Sorry for the delay in posting, but I was on a little birthday vacation. So here are some new deals I stumbled upon:

Super Target:
Free Bread or close to free bread: Print off the $1/1 Target Bread coupon here. You can use this coupon on the mini loaves which are $0.99 or on the full french bread loaves which are $1.52.

Cheap potatoes: I noticed that some Super Target stores had different prices on the 5 lb bag of potatoes. One of my local stores had them for $1.49 and two of them had the potatoes for $5.99. Needless to say I got the $1.49 bag of potatoes and used the $1/1 target coupon here. So 5 lbs of potatoes for $0.49.

Cheap applesauce: The Mott's applesauce 4 and 6 packs at my local targets were $1.69. In addition to plain applesauce, they had no sugar added blueberry, strawberry and peach. I used the $1/1 supertarget coupon here and the $0.55 printable manufacturer's coupon here to get a 6 pack for $0.14.

Cheap Cheetos: At the checkout stand are the large snack size back of Cheetos. They are $1.29. Use the $1/1 Cheetos coupon here and you have a large snack size bag for $.29.

Cheap Meat: The Sutton and Dodge Target brand meat is in a variety of cuts and prices. I got a boneless NY Strip for $1.98 after the $2/1 coupon (link). On my subsequent trips I picked up a 3 pack of round of eye steaks for $1.48 and a chuck roast for $.03 (you read that write, it was originally $2.03 before coupon.

Cheap razors: Ok, so for this deal you need coupons from Sunday's paper. There is a $4/1 Schick Intuition razor coupon and a $4/1 Schick Quattro razor coupon. The razors are currently on sale at Target for $6.99. Buy both razors and use both coupons in one transaction and you will pay $6 and get a $5 gift card back. So you get 2 razors for $1, though you can't use the giftcard on this purchase. The only trouble you might have with this deal is finding the razors.

$50 in Free Groceries - Dallas Area only

UPDATE: Stephanie - I finally got around to posting the picture of my shopping excursion. All these grocery were free, including some great cloth grocery bags.

The Newflower Farmer's Market will be opening up a new location March 18, 2009. I went to the opening of their Plano location which was originally called Sunflower, but was later renamed because of another Texas store with a similar name. Sharon and I braved the cold and dodged the TV cameras as we waited for the store to open. We were given breakfast, a sunflower, a range of grand opening specials and best of all a grocery bag filled with $50 worth of free stuff. Also, all your groceries purchased on opening day (or at least in the morning) are put in reusable cloth bags. So with another store opening, I'm getting ready to brave the elements again, this time with my friend Lissa.

Here's the scoop:

The Dallas location's grand opening festivities begin at 6:30 a.m. in front of the store with complimentary breakfast items and a special garland cutting ceremony. The store is located at 1800 N. Henderson Avenue at Lewis Street.
Doors will open immediately after the garland cutting at 7 a.m. The first 200 customers on opening day will receive a FREE reusable shopping bag filled with Newflower's healthy groceries, valued at over $50, with any in-store purchase. Customers are encouraged to arrive early, as the line typically forms hours before the store opening at 7a.m.
Enjoy fun, food and great giveaways all day long, as well as free samples from virtually every Newflower department! Additionally, guests can enjoy complimentary chair massages to relieve tired muscles. From 11am to 6 p.m., the grill will sizzle for an on-site barbeque, featuring free samples of all-natural Harris Ranch beef.

$3 off on any Gerber & $5 Nestle Good Start Formula

In an attempt to save money I have started paying more attention to printable coupons. This is a great coupon as it is $3 off any gerber snack products. So fill you basket with $3 of Gerber baby food, Gerber Graduate food and/or Gerber snacks (which isn't hard, as expensive baby/toddler food is) and head to the check out to save $3 with your coupon. All you have to do is click on this link and complete a pledge. This isn't a monetary pledge, mine was to provide Riley with healthy choices so he can grow up strong and healthy. After you submit your pledge you will be directed to a set of 4 buttons, one of which is for $8 worth of coupons ($5 off Nestle Good Starts Formula and $3 Gerber food and snacks). Since we don't use formula anymore I just printed off the Gerber.

Free Arby's Roast Burger with purchase of drink

My husband tried out this deal today and had a great lunch for the price of a drink.....before he decided to order another burger. Thanks to the employee's error, he only paid $3.69 (the regular price for the burger), but typically the deal will be around $1.50 for drink and one burger. He is an avid Arby's fan and was excited to try the Bleu Cheese burger (typically his favorite at normal burger joints) and the Cheddar Burger. Surprisingly, the Cheddar Burger won this scientific taste test that required getting two burgers. Overall, he said the meal was a solid performer and he plans to go back again before the coupon expires. Enjoy your own roast burger, get your coupon here.

Who broke up with who, who's in a feud, who made a fashion faux pas and speculation on who is's a guilty pleasure right up there with reality TV.
