BOGO FREE burgers at Scotty P’s TODAY! July 30, 2010

Scotty P's Yes, there is such a thing as a FREE lunch — especially when you dine out with a friend! Normally I stick with national deals, but this one was too good not to share for my friends in North Texas…

Scotty P’s is one of my favorite burger joints in North Texas. Just try their onion rings and you’ll be hooked! TODAY you can get a FREE burger when you buy one.  They just posted this on Facebook: “Tell our cashier Facebook & Twitter said today is FREE BURGER FRIDAY! Buy any burger & get a 2nd burger of equal or lesser value FREE 7/30/10 ONLY. $6 Max.” (Not valid with other offers.)

So, grab a friend and head out for lunch or dinner. Be sure to say it is your treat! And, if you’re not a burger fan I highly recommend their Greek salad. (I always get the dressing on the side.)

Good only TODAY, 7/30/2010.

 

$2 layering camis from Old Navy July 29, 2010

Old Navy Layering CamiHow to extend that summer wardrobe into the fall? Layer like crazy! Really, give it a try. Put a light-weight cardigan on over this cute V-Neck Layering Cami from Old Navy and you have a very versatile office-to-happy-hour outfit (well, you’d need pants or a skirt to go with it unless you work somewhere I’ve never been). Pick up a cami in black and wear it under that summer dress. And don’t forget those itchy winter wool sweaters… Putting a cami under those is a must!

For the next 3 days ONLY, you can snag up to 5 of Old Navy’s V-Neck Layering Camis for just $2 each with this printable coupon in store! (Or, if you’re like me and you’d rather not print a coupon if you don’t have to, just holler “CAMI4ME” at the register and they’ll give you the deal.) These shirts are regularly $8.50 a pop.

To be honest, these make great pajama tops too!

FREE tall coffee at Starbucks! July 28, 2010

StarbucksAh, tell me how wonderful is this?!?! Yes, there is a way to get a FREE tall coffee at Starbucks. No, you don’t have to answer any surveys, jump through any hoops, or promise me your first-born child…

So, I brew Starbucks coffee at home every. single. morning. The other day I looked closely at the bag and noticed that there’s an ad on the side of it that says, “Bring us your empty bag. We’ll give you a coffee.” FREE COFFEE! WOOHOO! (Yes, I’ve had my cup of coffee already this morning. Can you tell?)

Take a minute to read those bags — or bug a friend who brews Starbucks coffee at home — and save them for a day when you need a pick-me-up! The ad is black with white writing. Look for it! (I think it is just on the bags that you buy at non-Starbucks stores, such as Target, Kroger, etc.)

Oh, and have you heard that you can use your iPhone to pay for your Starbucks coffee at Starbucks locations within Target stores?!? Yep, there’s an app for that. This is pretty darn cool. Click here for more info.

Expires: 30 days after the “Best Before” date printed on your bag

(This is a re-post from April 2010, but well worth it since we have so many new friends visiting Being Resourceful and most people seem to not know about this fabulous deal!)

FREE backpack at Staples (via EasyRebate) July 26, 2010

BackpacksCan you believe this is the last week of July? Back-to-school sales are starting all over the place and Christmas decorations are already up at Hobby Lobby… And it is still 100+ degrees outside! I heard this deal on the radio this weekend (can’t remember the station) and was blown away. Every kid needs school supplies, and most long for a new backpack to go with those new back-to-school shoes.

This week you can get ANY backpack for FREE at Staples! Really, it ends up being FREE when you send in their EasyRebate form (which they’ll print for you at the register along with your receipt), and you’ll get 100% of the backpack’s purchase price back as a Staples Gift Card. You know you’ll need to pick up more supplies in the future, whether it is more ink for the printer, the highly-coveted Sharpie markers, or even something as basic as posterboard. Or, perhaps YOU could use something like computer supplies, a phone case, a big ‘ol bag of coffee, etc.!

You can shop in the store, online, or by phone. This deal is limited to one per household, so be sure to use it on the most expensive backpack you purchase!

FREE CD featuring Zac Brown Band & more July 23, 2010

Zac Brown BandSing it with me… “I’ve got my toes in the water, my toes in the sand…” (Radio edit here, folks.) Ah, summer songs! While most of us enjoy our summers here at home, thousands of U.S. troops are overseas, working hard for the world. Their toes may be in the sand, but they’re probably inside heavy boots that are carrying a person who really misses his or her family and friends.

Here’s a way to say THANK YOU to a soldier while getting a FREE CD Breaking Southern Ground “featuring Southern Ground Artists Zac Brown Band, Sonia Leigh, Nic Cowan, and Levi Lowrey.” Simply write a letter to a soldier and drop it off at any Ram dealer. They’ll trade your letter for a FREE CD while supplies last. And this CD isn’t one you can buy in the stores — it is a special compilation made exclusively for this “Letters for Lyrics” campaign!

Find a Ram dealer near you.

Expires: Whenever they run out of CDs.

Thanks, Kristin P of The Richards Group!
