Check out all the Black Friday 2011 Deals!   Check out Kohl’s On-Line Coupon Codes

Kohls is one of the stores that I actually read the Black Friday ad cover to cover.  They usually have some great deals and almost all are available on-line (which allows me to sleep in!)

Kohls will open at midnight Friday morning so no need to even both to sleep this year!  They have over 500 early bird specials which will be good until 1 p.m. Friday. 

PLUS you get $15 Kohls cash for every $50 you spend.  Remember you can remember your Kohl’s cash for on-line purchases too!

The Kohl’s cash can be used 11/28 – 12/5.

Here are the deals that caught my eye:

$9.99 (after rebate) on specific kitchen electronics including electric griddle, 5 qt. crock-pot, Belgium waffle maker and quesadilla maker (I did this one last year)

$12.99 (after rebate) on specific kitchen electronics including a GF grill, griddle, toaster, blender, mixer, deep fryer

All sizes of flannel sheet sets $14.99

$3.99 bath towels, $2.99 hand towels and washcloths

Cuddle Duds 50% off

$9.99 18 Piece Lock N Load Storage

Memory Foam Bed Pillows $17.99 (best $20 I ever spent a few years ago)

The ad is over 50 pages long so it’s a big read.  Check out the Kohls 2011 Black Friday ad.

Post image for Walgreens Black Friday 2011- If Walgreens Confuses You

Just like last year Walgreens has some awesome Black Friday deals.  In previous years these deals have also been available on Thanksgiving Day- I am not sure if they will do that this year or not.

I wanted to do a simple Black Friday Walgreens post for those of you who aren’t really comfortable at Walgreens yet, to sort of explain how things work.

Walgreens have something called Register Rewards.  They print out on long, white pieces of paper after you do your transaction.  Walgreens treats them (in most ways) just like a Walgreens gift certificate.  In coupon math if you spend $2 on something but you get $2 in Register Rewards back we consider that a FREE item. 

On Black Friday 2011 there will be MANY items that are FREE after Register Rewards.  Here is a list of some of the more popular items:

Advil PM Pain Relief (4 ct.) – $0.99
Get $0.99 in Register Rewards
Final Price: FREE

Oral-B Indicator Toothbrush – $1.50
Get $1.50 in Register Rewards
Final Price: FREE

ThermaCare HeatWrap – $2.49
Get $2.49 in Register Rewards
Final Price: FREE

Colgate Pro Clinical, Total Advanced, or Gum Defense Toothpaste (4 oz) – $3
Get $3 in Register Rewards
Final Price: FREE

Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste (4 oz) – $2.50
Get $2.50 in Register Rewards
Final Price: FREE

So to maximize your savings you want to use Register Rewards to buy items that give you other Register Rewards.

Here is a simple example:

Go into Walgreens and pay $2.49 for the Therma Care Heat Wrap. You will get $2.49 in Register rewards.

Then go grab the $.99 Advil and the $1.50 Oral B Indicator Toothbrush. When they ring those two items up they will equal $2.49. Then give them the $2.49 in Register Rewards you earned when you purchased the Therma Care Heat Wrap.

That would bring your total to $0 and you would just have to pay sales tax.  And once you are finished you will have a new $2.49 in Register Rewards.

So for $2.49 you would get the toothbrush, the Advil and the Therma Care Heat Wrap plus $2.49 in Register Rewards.

Then, if you wanted to, you could grab the Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste.  It will ring up $2.50.  Give them your $2.49 in Register Rewards and you will pay $.01 plus sales tax.  PLUS you will get another $2.50 in Register Rewards.

So after 3 transactions you will have Advil, an Oral B Toothbrush, a Therma Care Wrap and Crest Toothpaste for $2.50 out of pocket (plus tax).  AND you will still have $2.50 in Walgreens credit to use on something else!

The drug stores can give you great chances to save LOTS of money!

Amazon & Walmart Watch Each Other

by Laura on November 3, 2011

Post image for Amazon & Walmart Watch Each Other

Last year during the holidays I noticed something VERY interesting (atleast to me).

Amazon & Walmart watch each other.

If Walmart  lowered a price on an item, you could be sure in 20 minutes Amazon had also lowered it. 

This morning another blogger reported a deal on a cute toy at Walmart.com.  Their site appears to be wonky right now  so I went over to Amazon.  The deal was a pretty significant discount off the regular price and sure enough, the toy is the exact same sale price at Amazon.

So if you like Amazon better than Walmart or just don’t want to deal with going to the store to pick up items at Walmart (their ship to store is free), always check Amazon.com. 

Odds are you can get the same item at almost the exact price.

And if you are interested in the item it is the Vtech Ride and Learn Giraffe Bike for $29.97.
