Now that it’s January, many of us are having a bit of bank-account shock from the aftermath of the holidays. Now you can focus on saving instead of spending.
Studio 5 Steals and Deals Contributor Jordan Page has spotted a few great deals to take advantage of to help perk up your wallet!
· Jimmy John’s $0.50 loaves of bread
Sure, we all love Jimmy John’s (http://www.jimmyjohns.com) sandwiches (and love that they deliver!). But…did you know that you can buy entire loaves of that famous Jimmy Johns bread for just $0.50? It’s true! Each day they sell their leftover loaves from the day before for just $0.50. They are still fresh-tasting, soft, and delicious. You can use them in many different ways: whether it’s making your own sandwiches at home, serving it toasted with dinner, or even cutting it through the middle and making homemade french bread pizza, it’s a tasty deal no matter how you chose to take advantage of it.
· Walgreens clearance toys
We all know and love Walgreens for their pharmacy items. But an insider’s tip is to keep your eye on their toy isles after the holidays! Right now they have a plethora of large toys, all on sale for $4.99:
My Very Own Gourmet Kitchen, $4.99: Currently priced $26 at stores like Target (see HERE)
Jump-N-Slam Basketball Set, $4.99: Currently priced at $50 at stores like Shopko (see HERE)
My Very Own Nursery Set, $4.99: Currently priced at $30 at stores like JCP (see HERE)
Life-Like Lisa Doll, $4.99: Regularly $19.99 at Walgreens
They also have a large selection of mix-and-match toys, buy 2 get the 3rd free…making each toy around $4 each! Hurry in while you can, quantities are sure to not last.
· Target’s new price-match policy
Target, Target, Target…who doesn’t love that store? It’s a nice one-stop shop, especially when looking for gifts. However, they don’t always have the best prices…until now. Target recently announced a new year-round price-match policy. They will match any online price from Wal-Mart, Amazon, Best-Buy, and Toys-r-Us, and will also match prices in-store. This is HUGE! It’s common knowledge that Amazon could run a killer deal on an item online, but it typically sells out quickly. Now you can find the item and price you want online, and take it into Target. No more worrying about paying for shipping, or quantities running out online. Read more about this announcement HERE, and read the new policy details HERE.
· Last-minute travel deals
Daily deal sites are a great way to save money on goods, food, and services, and KSL Daily Deals is no exception. However, there’s a sneaky tip that you might not know about: If you go to their daily deals page (www.ksl.com/deals), under their categories list you can click on “last-minute travel”. It gives you a variety of options for local travel, all at great discounts! This is perfect for weekend getaways (Valentine’s Day, anyone??). If you book within 14 days you save 30%-40%. If you book within 7 days, you save 50% or more! With hotels as low as $44, why NOT get away for a weekend?!
· Old Navy deals + bonus cash
This time of year is a great time to take advantage of winter clearance, since most stores are already starting to put out their Spring clothing lines. Old Navy is one store in particular to keep an eye on. Right now they have TONS of winter clearance. They have heavy children’s winter coats for $9.99, fleece for the whole family for $1.97-$3.99, and a plethora of clothes for $5.99 or less.
But in addition, until January 23rd you can get $10 in bonus cash for every $25 you spend. You then return to the store between Jan 31-Feb 6 and can get use a $10 bonus cash coupon toward a $25 purchase. This adds up quickly! Read more about this promotion HERE.
Another benefit to the bonus cash? When I completed my purchase at the register, I got a bonus coupon of 10% off my entire next purchase for filling out a survey online within 5 days. Don’t mind if I do!
