Harris Teeter, Craig's List, and Plum District

Plum District has a promo code up right now (SUMMER2012) for 20% off your entire purchase - good through August 8th (Wednesday). Normally, they'll either apply a discount code or Plum Dollars that you have in your account (they award them periodically for creating an account, referring a friend, etc.). But, I had $5 credit in my account and they applied both the discount code AND the $5! The deal I particularly like right now is:

Turn Your Favorite Photo into Wall Art 

Includes FREE Standard Shipping

$27 for a 11x11 Canvas Print - a $53 Value
$28 for an 11x14 Canvas Print - a $60 Value
$37 for an 16x20 CanvasPrint - an $87 Value

I got the 16x20 canvas voucher for only $24.60 + free shipping (about $100 value)! I can't wait to use these to get some photos turned into beautiful art work! If you're not a plum district subscriber, click here to sign up for free!

Harris Teeter - ready, set, clip!!! HT will be doing another amazing Super-Double Coupon event . . . and they'll be doubling up to $2 face value! So now is the time to use those coupons that are$1.50 (they're worth $3 at HT) and the few rare $2.00 coupons (they're worth $4 at HT)!!! The promo starts on Wednesday, August 8th and will run all the way through the following Tuesday, August 14th.

Craig's List - have you forgotten about this amazing "service"? I've just recently gotten reacquainted with it and am totally re-sold! I have a slight obsession with Pottery Barn furniture - although I just can't afford to pay full-price for it. So I've been scouting out Craig's List on a daily basis and here is what I've learned:
  • Don't search for the item you're looking for, search for the brand. I've been just entering "Pottery Barn" in the search box and I get to see everything that anyone is selling from PB. Otherwise, I have to sift through hundreds of ads for furniture that I have absolutely no interest in.
  • Never pay more than 50% of the original price of the item; significantly less if it's older.
  • Always negotiate price; it is absolutely expected on Craig's List. Even people who say "price firm". Make an offer! Seriously, what's the worst they can say?
  • If they're not close-by, be pro-active and offer to pay full asking price if they'll deliver the item - or at least meet you somewhere.
  • Be patient and check back daily. People post things all the time - so just check back on a daily basis to see what's new - and to see who still has something they're trying to get rid of. People who post, re-post, and re-post day after day - really want to get rid of whatever they're selling. Those are the people who are willing to deal!

So that's it for now! Good luck and happy shopping!

Combining Deals

You can often save big bucks when you combine a variety of deals/offers! Just this morning, I combined a fantastic sale, with ebates, and shop runner to save myself over 50%. Here's what I did: is having a fantastic sale on bras: buy 1, get another for 75% off (doesn't have to be the same bra). Plus, use code XTRA15 at checkout and get an additional 15% your entire order. So here's what I did:

  • Logged in to my ebates account and did a search for bare necessities. They're offering 4% cash back! So I clicked on the "Shop Now" button and they automatically directed me to barenecessities. 
  • I bought 2 bras on sale for $35 each. After discounts, they came out to $7.22 and $29.75 each. 
  • When I got to the place where I enter in shipping preference, I logged into my shoprunner account (they have a button there where you can do it directly from their page and it automatically calculates). So I got my shipping for free! 
All totaled I got two bras shipped to my door for $36.97 + I'll get $1.47 deposited into my ebates account. That means I've really spent a total of $35.50 for 2 bras that normally would have cost me $70 + $5.00 shipping. Plus, I guess since I bought this on tax-free weekend here in NC, I didn't have to pay tax either! :-)
