YUM!! That’s what I have to say about Quiznos sandwiches. Some of them are even good enough to remind me of my days spent living in New England where subs were called “grinders.”

So, in the spirit of my years up north, here’s a printable coupon for FREE chips & a drink when you purchase any regular sub, large sub, or regular chopped salad. Let them toast your buns. You’ll like it!

Ok, there are no excuses left now for not filling that fabulous 8×10″ frame that is just collecting dust in your closet… Pull it out, dust it off, and upload your favorite 8×10″ photo to print — for FREE!

Walgreens is offering a FREE 8×10″ photo print today when you use their online photo service. Simply upload your photo, enter code FREEPHOTO, and select the location for pick-up. If you have it shipped, you’ll have to pay shipping.

Here’s a great tip — have it ready at the photo recipient’s nearest Walgreens. I’ve had photos printed at a Walgreens in another state and paid for them ahead of time online, then my aunt just drops by to pick them up to share with my husband’s grandmother (who does not have Internet access).

Find a Walgreens near you.

2 FREE tickets to Studio Movie Grill February 19, 2010

PLEASE NOTE: I have no affiliation with Studio Movie Grill and no matter how nicely you ask me, I can’t get you any free tickets. That’s something you have to do on your own. 🙂

Have you been to Studio Movie Grill yet? Honestly, I haven’t either… but, I just got my 2 FREE TICKETS to use in the next few weeks and can’t wait to check it out! Friends have told me it is a great spot for dinner, beverages AND a movie, and our playgroup has even headed there with the kiddos at lunch time.

To get your 2 FREE TICKETS, just fill out this form and they’ll email you a verification link. Click that link and you’ll go straight to a site that has your PRINTABLE VOUCHER for your 2 FREE TICKETS.

Hmm… I see a FREE date night in my future! (Except for the cost of the babysitter, of course.)

Find a Studio Movie Grill near you.

Expires: The offer to get your tickets expires at the end of February, 2010. You can use your tickets through the expiration date at the bottom of your voucher. I signed up for my tickets today (2/19) and my tickets expire on 3/4/10.

Thanks, Sarah & Jessica!
