$25 Gift Certificates for $2 at

Now is one of those special times of year when Restaurant. com reduces the price of its $10 and $25 gift certificates by 80%. So instead of paying $10 for a $25 gift certificate to your favorite local restaurant, you can pay only $2. And those $10 gift certificates which usually cost $4 are only $.80. Such a deal!

Skim the list of participating restaurants in your area at the website,, and when you find one you like or have been meaning to try out, order a downloadable gift certificate and use the promotional code TASTE at checkout to reduce your total cost.

Read the fine print about limits on certificates from each restaurant - I think it's two per month, but check for yourself - and the minimum purchase required. In many cases, you need to spend $20 to use a $10 certificate and $35 or $50 to use a $25 certificate. So for $12 or so, you can enjoy a delicious $35 meal at a great local eatery. Enjoy!

Free school supplies at CVS

Today and tomorrow, CVS is offering school supplies free after Extra Bucks (meaning you'll be issued EBs in an amount equal to the cost of the product, making them effectively free).

The 8 products free after Extra Buck include: Caliber or CVS pencil/ink eraser, 2-pack glue sticks, or sticky notes; Caliber or CVS 1-subject notebook; Caliber or CVS 20 ct ball point pens or 10 ct pencils; Caliber or It's Academic compass or protractor; Caliber or It's Academic 5" pointed or blunt tip scissors; Caliber or It's Academic 12" Flexi Ruler; Caliber or It's Academic Stretchable book cover; and 2-pocket poly portfolio.

The maximum number of each you can buy is two.

The problem you may have is that many of the products may already be out-of-stock, so you might call first before making a drive to pick them up.
