33% OFF at Borders/Waldenbooks = BOB Books for $11.38 May 27, 2010

Summer is here! Time to swim, play, splash, and READ! So, my 4.5-year-old came home from preschool last week and announced he wanted to learn how to read. Hallelujah! Based on recommendations from friends who are teachers (and parents), I investigated the BOB Books. My first stop? Amazon, of course. They were $11.38 for a set there.  But I needed them RIGHT AWAY. The solution? This deal!

Here’s a printable coupon for 33% OFF the list price of one item at Borders or Waldenbooks! For this must-have beginning readers book set, it brought the original price of $16.99 down to $11.38 — matching Amazon’s price and allowing my soon-to-be-reader to have them NOW!

Chances are, if you’re reading this post, you’re already beyond the BOB Books yourself… So use this deal for something for you! If you’d rather shop online, use code BGA7757M. (Just FYI, you’ll need to be a Borders Rewards member for this deal, but that’s free & easy to set up if you’re not one already.)

Find a Borders or Waldenbooks near you.

And, I’m excited to report he’s already read books 1 & 2 in set 1 of the BOB Books. This is awesome!

$10 OFF $25 at Office Depot = $20 iPhone arm band! May 26, 2010

The beauty of my iPhone is that it is the one thing I need for phone, music, tracking my distance, and more when I run. The problem is that I don’t  yet have an arm band for it and I tend to drop it… Sweaty hands plus exuberant running equals terror for my phone! With this deal, I can get an arm band for just $20!!

Here’s a printable coupon for $10 OFF your purchase of $25 or more at Office Depot. And I found this arm band on their site for just $20 (orig $29.99, less the $10 OFF coupon!). NOTE that the coupon is good in-store only, so call ahead to make sure they have the arm band in stock for you!

Not in need of this item? No worries! You can still use this coupon for a zillion other things at Office Depot, and some of their competitors (call those stores first — like Office Max, Staples, etc.). Stock up on school & office supplies!

After an afternoon at the pool (or a commute home from the office) on a warm summer day, few things quench the thirst like a bubbly, cold beverage. Here’s a coupon for a FREE Limeade Sparkler at Taco Bell!

I guess Taco Bell has taken notice of Sonic’s success with their infamous limeades and hopped on the bandwagon. Take advantage of this promo by hopping on too! Click here to print your coupon for a FREE Limeade Sparkler, available in Classic Limeade or Cherry Limeade flavors.

EXPIRED: $3 OFF per ticket at Dallas Zoo May 10, 2010

UPDATE: It turns out that neither the Dallas Zoo nor AdPages realized this coupon was still up on the web! Oops! It looks like we unintentionally found a loop hole. The coupon has been taken down as of 7/12/2010, but check out the $1 admission day on 7/15/2010!

What a deal! If you live in or near Dallas, or plan to visit this fabulous city before the end of September, PRINT THIS NOW.

I found a killer printable coupon for the Dallas Zoo! You’ll save $3 OFF any full-price admission with this coupon, up to 6 tickets per coupon! Coupons for the Dallas Zoo are pretty rare to find, so this one is worth printing now and sticking in your glove box.

Have you heard about their amazing new Giants of the Savanna habitat that opens Memorial Day weekend? My kids and I have had such a fun time watching this habitat being built, and we visited Gypsy and Jenny, the zoo’s elephants, in their old habitats for the last time last week. The elephants have moved to the new 11 acre habitat and joined the new elephants successfully! The giraffes are next to move, and then when the habitat opens, we’ll be able to FEED the giraffes! How cool will that be?!?
