Banana Republic Promo Code: 41% Off Everything Today Only

Posted by on April 1, 2015 at 9:06 AM

Banana Republic Promo Code: 41% Off Everything Today Only

For today only, Banana Republic has released a promo code for a 41% discount on any order. No, this is not an April Fool’s joke! Banana Republic Promo Code: 41% Off Everything Today Only

Click here to shop @ BananaRepublic.ca now

  • Coupon Code: BRAPRIL
  • Discount: 41% off
  • Expiry: 1st April 2015

Since Banana Republic is the more expensive one out of the 3 Gap Brands, which includes Gap and Old Navy, I like to almost always only check out the sale section, especially when there are coupon codes like these so that I can save even more on already reduced items.

With summer fast approaching, I have been thinking of ways to change up my closet and discounts like these definitely help a lot. I spotted the gray knit dress on sale for $63.99 (reg. $124), which means that at checkout, it comes down to just $37.75! Surprisingly for a dress that I found in Banana Republic’s sale section, it’s actually currently available in every size. Keep in mind that it should only be dry cleaned and it features an “oh-so flattering” silhouette. Out of the 3 posted reviews, one was disappointed but the other two praised this dress. One reviewer even pointed out how it could easily be worn throughout the changing seasons:

Great weekend wear — pair with leggings and boots in the winter, or alone with sandals in the spring.

My hubby never bothers to iron anything. He just doesn’t seem to notice the wrinkles at all and so I think that the tailored slim-fit non-iron gray check shirt would be a hit with him. It comes in either regular or tall and I know that he will appreciate the slim fit over the regular fits. Plus, it’s 100% cotton! Originally priced at $95, it’s on sale for $85.99 and further comes down to just $50.73.

Shared Checkout

The great part about shopping at one of the Gap brands is that they have a shared checkout. This means that you could add a top from Gap, pants from Banana Republic and baby clothes from Old Navy and still only check out once. Today’s discounts at the other brands aren’t as high as the Banana Republic promo code but you can get:

  • 35% off until 5pm ET and 25% off from 5-midnight with coupon GAPHAHA @ GapCanada.ca
  • Up to 40% off all dresses & skirts @ OldNavy.ca
  • 25% off all kids & baby merchandise with the coupon code BONUS @ OldNavy.ca

All of these expire today, on April 1st, as well.

Shipping is free on orders over $50.

Bosch Tassimo T20 Home Brewing System Was $170 | Now $60 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Posted by on March 31, 2015 at 9:21 PM

Bosch Tassimo T20 Home Brewing System Was $170 | Now $60 + Free Shipping @ Amazon.ca

Wake up and smell the coffee, but don’t wait until the morning to snag this deal. Amazon Canada promotions sometimes end real quick, so if you’re in the market for a Tassimo Home Brewing System then grab this one. This Bosch Tassimo T20 Home Brewing System can be picked up for just $59.99 right now @ Amazon.ca. This is 65% off the previous price which was $169.99. You’ll get free shipping too.

While you may have spent a good portion of your time searching for an affordable and compact coffee maker, the solution is right under your nose. You can shop at Amazon.ca and take 65% off this Bosch Tassimo T20 Home Brewing System for just $59.99. This brewer will allow you to have a perfect beverage every time, just at the touch of a button. Tassimo has T-Discs for many delicious beverages like coffee, tea, hot chocolate and even iced beverages. I am very thankful for my Tassimo brewer, especially on busy mornings when all I want is my caffeine fix. This brewer only makes one cup at a time, so you’ll no longer have to waste the rest of the pot of coffee if you don’t drink it all.

I did do a little price comparison on this Tassimo product, just to make sure this is the absolute best price. Here is a look at what other Canadian retailers are selling the Bosch Tassimo T20 Home Brewing System for:

While Tassimo says that there are no taste transfers between drinks, I have to disagree. If I make tea before hot chocolate, I can slightly taste it. Also, if I don’t clean my machine often enough, it gets a metal taste. I would suggest using the provided cleaning T-Disc every once in a while to clean your machine to prevent this. This particular Tassimo model has a 1.5 litre water tank, so you won’t have to refill the water whenever you make you and your partner a drink. There are many excellent reviews on the Tassimo machines, but many also complain that there are not as many flavours available as the Keurig has. Are you on the Tassimo or Keurig team?

Unfortunately only the black version of this brewer is on sale. The white model is the regular price of $169.99. I find black will look better with other appliances anyway. Amazon will also throw in free shipping since this purchase is over $25.

Dell Canada: Wireless Laser Mouse Was $45 | Now $30 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 31, 2015 at 9:06 PM

Dell Canada: Wireless Laser Mouse Was $45 | Now $30 & Free Shipping

Dell Canada has the Dell WM514 Wireless Laser Mouse on sale from $44.99 down to $29.99 with free shipping.

With a wireless mouse, you reduce cable clutter around your desk. While I currently use a wired mouse (it is what I own), the wires constantly drive me crazy as my mouse runs into them. I also have accidentally sent my mouse flying a few times when I forgot to unplug the USB port when moving my computer. I have done that so many times. My next purchase will be a wireless mouse.

Like other Dell mice, the WM514 has the Dell Unifying software so you can manage up to six other peripheral devices (like keyboard, number pads, and other mice) all through one nano-USB receiver. This is very useful technology for those with limited USB ports on their computer. My gaming computer only has three USB ports and they are often completely full with mice, the charging cable for my phone, and more.

The mouse also is Microsoft Windows 8 compatible. With Windows 8 gesture controls, you can scroll up, down, left or right with the mouse wheel. This helps you navigate Windows 8 tiles. The side buttons will access the Windows 8 charms bar. The mouse can also function perfectly ‘normal’ with other operating systems.

The reviews for this mouse are very positive. It ranks a solid 4.5/5 stars with over 20 reviews. One reviewer said:

I am very pleased with this product. It is easy to use, has a good structure, and I love that it turns off when not in use. I am definitely not a savy tech person so I was pleased that nothing about it was complicated. I love my new laptop and mouse. Life is good Dell Canada: Wireless Laser Mouse Was $45 | Now $30 & Free Shipping

Overall, this is a good size, well-shaped, reliable Dell wireless mouse. While I have seen some cheaper mice, this mouse provides full features for Windows 8 and can be used on almost any surface. The Dell unifying software is a very nice bonus that is becoming standard on all their devices it seems.

If you own this mouse then please drop us a line and tell us what you think of it.

Microsoft Canada: Jabra Solemate Mini Bluetooth Speaker Was $100 | Now $60 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 31, 2015 at 8:31 PM

Microsoft Canada: Jabra Solemate Mini Bluetooth Speaker Was $100 | Now $60 & Free Shipping

Microsoft Canada has discounted the lovely little Jabra Solemate Mini Bluetooth Speaker from $99.99 down to $59.99 with free shipping.

I could not find this speaker at many Canadian retailers, but I did find it at a few. Here is what you would pay at the competition for this mighty little speaker:

  • $69.99 @ Dell Canada
  • $78.92 @ Amazon Canada
  • $87.99 + $7.60 shipping @ Newegg Canada now
  • $99.98 @ Best Buy Canada

All the Jabra mini speakers I found at other retailers are in red (and one yellow one) – Microsoft Canada appears to be the only one in Canada to sell the black speaker. I think the black speaker looks the best and I would certainly choose it over the red.

Why do you need the Jabra? Well, this is your do it all sort of speaker. The mini device is small enough to go anywhere and yet packs big sound with two powerful speakers. Eight hours of play time will give you a good charge while you are out seeing the world or relaxing in a hotel room or outside having a BBQ. The Jabra Solemate is dust and splash resistant. That does not mean you can drop it in the pool (do not do that) but it can withstand the usual pumps and scrapes of travelling. This is possible because the speaker has an all-over rubber coating for protection.

The mini Jabra connects to any device via Bluetooth or NFC if you have it. You can control the speaker from your phone even when you are sitting across the room. Just hook up your iPhone or android for endless music on the go. I think this is a sweet little speaker with a lot of promise.

While there are many wireless speakers produced these days, my travel speaker must always be able to withstand a little rough treatment. That is why I really like the rubber coating on this one. If you accidentally drop the speaker, or it gets shoved into your backpack with a leaky water bottle… there is a much better chance this speaker will survive and live to blare music another day.

As with all orders at Microsoft Canada, the speaker receives free shipping to your home.

60% Off PS3 Batman Games, Bundles & Expansion Packs @ PlayStation Network

YOOHOO! Anybody home? The PlayStation Network is currently having a sweet sale on Batman: Arkham City for the PlayStation 3 with 60% off the game, bundles, challenge packs, the LEGO version, and more.

  • Arkham Origins: Deathstroke challenge pack: reg. $5.99/ now $2.40
  • Arkham Origins: Initiation: reg. $6.99/ now $2.80
  • Batman: Arkham City – Harley Quinn’s Revenge: reg. $9.99/ now $4
  • Arkham Origins: Season Pass: reg. $19.99/ now $8
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum: reg. $19.99/ now $8
  • Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate Deluxe Edition: reg. $19.99/ now $8
  • Batman: Arkham city Ultimate Edition: reg. $34.49/ now $13.80
  • Batman: Arkham Origins Ultimate Bundle: reg. $37.49/ now $15

For Batman: Arkham City, you can also get all of the following bundles on sale:

  • Batman: Arkham City – Nightwing bundle: reg. $6.99/ now $2.80
  • Batman: Arkham City – Robin bundle: reg. $6.99/ now $2.80
  • Batman: Arkham City – Catwoman bundle: reg. $9.99/ now $4

These bundles offer a different fully playable characters by the likes of either Nightwing, or Catwoman that come with their own set of unique moves and weapons. Paying full price for these isn’t particularly worth it but considering they’re between $2.80 and $4 for each right now, then it’s definitely better to get them now.

These are all RPG games but if you’re looking for a fighter game, then you could get Injustice: Gods Among Us Ultimate Edition for either PS3 or PS4 on sale for $12 (reg. $29.99). You will find iconic characters like Batman, Green Lantern, the Flash, Wonder Woman, Superman and the Joker. You can play it with up to two players.

Another fighter game that you can currently get on sale is Mortal Kombat vs. DC  Universe. Originally priced at $19.99, it’s now on sale for just $8 and looks super fun to play. If you have played it before, then keep in mind that online matchmaking is no longer a feature of this game.

For those of you with kids, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes could be a good one to pick up as well, especially since it’s down to just $8 (reg. $19.99). There is also currently a full game free trial available of this one. So you could give it a whirl before buying it but just make sure to get it before the sale ends to get it at the discounted price.

5 Ideas To Celebrate Easter Frugally

Posted by on March 31, 2015 at 8:00 PM

5 Ideas To Celebrate Easter Frugally

Easter is a great time to celebrate spring. After a long winter it is easy to get caught up in the festivities and spend more than you intended. I try to spend time with people I care about on Easter rather than spending lots of money on fuzzy bunnies and plastic chicks. We do celebrate the arrival of the Easter Bunny in our house, and with a little frugal planning we can have a frugal Easter morning full of plenty of fun and love.

Consider Treats Without Sugar

Do you end up buying a whole slew of toys and outside items for springtime? Easter is the perfect time to gift some of the small items that can be used all spring and summer. Instead of filling your basket with lots of candy, consider purchasing some of those items you might have bought eventually anyways for summer time play. Here is a list of items for $5 or less that you can put in an Easter basket.

  • Seeds to plant and kids garden tools
  • Sand toys
  • Chalk
  • Bubble bath
  • Matchbox cars
  • Frisbee
  • Jump rope
  • Bubbles
  • Mini playdough or make your own
  • Markers or crayons

Do you need more ideas for family fun? Check out these past posts for 5 Frugal Easter Kids Crafts or Frugal Ways to Get Your Kids Excited for Easter.

Make Homemade Treats

5 Ideas To Celebrate Easter Frugally

Every time I go to the store to buy candy for a holiday, I am reminded just how incredibly expensive themed chocolate can be. According to Canadian Connection over two billion dollars globally is spent on Easter candy each year with 70% of it being chocolate. That is a lot of cash being spent on sweets and treats. Easter themed treats are generally anywhere from $3 to $15 depending on the quality of candy.

One idea is to make some of your treats. A quick scan of the web and I found this easy looking recipe for homemade Cadbury Crème Eggs from Miss Candiquik.  If you love jellybeans, these homemade gumdrops from The Stay At Home Chef look quick, festive and yummy. She suggests using a candy mold but you could also grease a bread loaf pan, and slice your candy into cubes or cut with a mini cookie cutter.  These chocolate covered peep pops from Gimme Some Oven look fun and delicious. They would look so cute in cellophane bags in your Easter basket, or would make great gifts for teachers and school friends.

Save On Your Basket

Most inexpensive baskets will run from $5-$15 if empty. If pre-filled with Easter treats, baskets generally start at $30 and only go up in price. If you purchase a basket every year, that money can add up. A friend of mine has a lovely brown wicker basket she used as a child and now has passed the tradition on to her children. If you have a wicker basket at home, consider using it year after year and decorating it with some ribbon and tissue paper.

You could also make a DIY basket. East Coast Mommy created an adorable basket out of an empty tissue box. DIY & Crafts has a great roundup of 25 Easter baskets you can make.

A trick for young children is to put everything in a sand bucket. The bucket is then can be used at the beach or park and most likely you were going to purchase it for your child anyways for summer. Sand toys tend to break throughout the summer, so a fresh bucket is a great start for spring. We used our sand toys all winter in the snow also.

Pick Frugal Flowers

5 Ideas To Celebrate Easter Frugally

Spring flowers are beautiful, but stems such as daffodils and tulips often do not last long when you buy them for your table. When it comes to choosing blooms, there are a couple places you could buy. If you go into a florist, expect to walk out paying $30-$60 for a basic bouquet. These bouquets will be carefully prepared for maximum freshness, and I personally find bouquets from the florist always last longer. If you can pick up a budget version, chances are your bouquet will last a little longer than the grocery option.

Bouquets in the grocery store start a little cheaper at around $20, but I generally expect the blooms not to last as long. When picking your blooms, choose carefully and pick blooms that are closed. They may look ugly in the moment, but those ugly flowers will bloom shortly and you will be able to enjoy the blooms much longer.

Gerber daisies are an inexpensive spring bloom to choose. Pair with some filler greenery or put a few stems in a mason jar for a chic and simple spring look. A potted plant is another way to be a little more frugal and have your blooms last longer. Once the ground thaws, you can take your flowers from table to your garden. Take a look at The Garden Helper for more specifics on different types of common potted Easter flowers.

Host Easter Brunch Instead Of Easter Dinner

A quick survey though Open Table in Toronto tells me that the price for Easter brunch or dinner out starts at $30 and ranges up to $70 per person. Multiple that by ten people and you spend $300 to $700 before taxes, tip, wine or any other extras.

Hosting a full traditional Easter dinner can be time consuming and heavy on your wallet also. Make your event a little more casual, skip the ham and host Easter brunch. If you need some recipe ideas, check out this delicious looking recipe round up from Two Peas and Their Pod.  If you have guests, suggest a potluck so you spread the cooking around. For more tips, check out our previous post on How to Plan a Frugal Easter Dinner.

10 Spring & Easter Free Printables

As the late Robin Williams once said: Spring is nature’s way of saying let’s party! Goodbye snowmen and fuzzy hats, we will see you next year. Welcome back to the colourful flowers, fuzzy bunnies, birds and spring babies. My home could also use a few simple refreshes for spring. With just a few minutes, a printer,  and some paper or cardstock you can create these amazing projects that will help you welcome spring with open arms. The best part is these projects will cost you very little for a lot of spring cheer. Most of these projects are single sheet images that you could frame in a photo frame, use as the front of a greeting card or make into a quick gift tag. Printables are perfect for both home decoration or parties!

Easter Egg Hunt Party Pack

10 Spring & Easter Free Printables

This party pack from Yellow Bliss Road would be adorable to use for an Easter Egg hunt with family and friends. Print off this party pack that includes a banner, sign and decorative food tags. Cut, glue, and tah dah. Cute decorations faster than you could make it to the dollar store and back.

Bicycle Adventure

10 Spring & Easter Free Printables

Over at The 36th Avenue they created a sweet bicycle print that says Love The Journey. This would be nice in a little kid’s room or playroom. I love the pops of colour on this image, especially on the black chalkboard version

10 Spring & Easter Free Printables

This printable from Darling Doodles would be so sweet to include framed with a wedding gift, or would look equally cute hanging in your front hallway. This cozy nest will make your house feel warm and light.

With My Peeps

10 Spring & Easter Free Printables

Spunky Junky gets it right with these fun Meet My Peeps and Hippity Hop printables. I love the tongue-in-cheek design. Her bunny pennant also featured in this post is made of free paint chips and is equally adorable.

Here Comes Peter Cottontail

10 Spring & Easter Free Printables

Tatertots and Jello has created a darling set of printables in turquoise, grey and white. Included are several bunny silhouettes, and pretty text quotes that say Happy Spring and Here Comes Peter Cottontail. I like how this blogger filled a slimmer entryway wall space with several of these prints.

Spring Owls

10 Spring & Easter Free Printables

I love the owl trend and these prints with a cartoon feel are no exception. Over at Glued to My Crafts she created two modern springtime owl printables, a third which is welcoming May showers, and a fourth hello spring print. If this is your style, you now have four options that coordinate for your wall or projects.

Antique School Chart- Egg Edition

10 Spring & Easter Free Printables

This is a fun project from Knick of Time. She created a vintage looking bird egg identification chart that looks expensive. When you find that first broken bird egg in your backyard, I bet you will be consulting this chart. Both my girly side and my nerdy side love this print.

Hello Spring

10 Spring & Easter Free Printables

Sandy Toes and Popsicles is greeting spring with joy with her Hello Spring printable. I want to hide this one in places my husband would not expect it to make him smile, I may hide a copy of this print in the freezer. This would also look sweet framed in the hallway.

Flying Bird       

10 Spring & Easter Free Printables                                           

If you are a fan of an antique style check out this beautiful bird printable from Laughter and Grace. I love the inspirational quote: She went out on a limb and learned she could fly. This print is motivational without looking like you bought a stock motivational poster.

April Showers Mobile

10 Spring & Easter Free Printables

Craftaholics Anonymous created this sweet April showers mobile that is so very sweet. This one looks quick to make, and would be fun to make with kids. I would hang this one in my window next to my sun catcher.

Shop.ca: $15 Bench Shirts with Free Shipping

Posted by on March 31, 2015 at 7:40 PM

Shop.ca: $15 Bench Shirts with Free Shipping

Shop.ca has a few Bench brand shirts on sale for just $14.99 each. All items at Shop.ca qualify for free shipping so this is a good time to pick up a shirt or two from the popular brand Bench.

In the men’s section, we have two different Bench shirts to choose from. This Snooze Slim T-shirt in greymarl is on sale from $35 down to $14.99. The graphic has four old-fashioned alarm clocks on the front. Each alarm clock has one word on it that combine to say “You Snooze You Lose”. Sizes medium and large are still available.

Next, we have the men’s Bench Call In Sick Slim T-shirt in bright white. The graphic features a staircase to the metro on it with some fun play on words in the bubbles. Can you guess what FWRK stands for? Originally $35, the Bench Call in Sick shirt is on sale for $14.99. Sizes small and large are still in stock.

In the women’s section, you have but one choice: the Bench Shootclean C Ss Top in tiger lily was $35, and it is now $14.99. This is a nice, simple, orange top with the Bench logo emblazoned across the front. I like the V-neck and the longer length of this shirt. All sizes are still in stock – from extra-small to extra-large. Some sizes only have a few shirts left. This is a fantastic basic shirt for women that is made of good quality materials. At only $15, you cannot go wrong.

Those are the three shirts I found for only $14.99 with free shipping at Shop.ca. For those with a bit larger budget, I wanted to mention a few $20 Bench shirts as well. In the women’s section, there are four Bench shirts on sale for $19.99.

Obviously, the racer back vest is the best deal out of these four shirts. The men have less selection. They can pick up this Bench Jolter Regular Tshirt – Sulphur that is on sale from $39 down to $19.99.

Personally, I think the $15 shirts are my first choice though I might pick up that racer back top as well. With free shipping, it does not matter if you buy one or more shirts – there are no additional costs.

MEC: Oiselle Flyer Jacket Was $149 | Now $69 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 31, 2015 at 7:12 PM

MEC: Oiselle Flyer Jacket Was $149 | Now $69 & Free Shipping

Spring is coming… to some parts of Canada. Here in BC, runners and walkers are out in full force. Mountain Equipment Co-op has discounted the Oiselle Flyer Jacket from $149 down to $69. As the jacket costs over $50, it will ship to your home for free.

Mountain Equipment Co-op always has fantastic deals in their sale section. I was looking for a backpack when I came across the deal on this light jacket. I found the Oiselle jacket appealing for various reasons. First, the jacket is wind resistant and rain proof. Most jackets with those two features are also terribly loud and somewhat stiff. However, this jacket is nice and soft and it is not loud when your arms rub against your torso while out running or just running for the bus.

This jacket is extremely lightweight and packs up super small. Other features include front pockets with zippers, elasticized cuffs, draw cord at bottom hem, and reflective graphics on the front and back for safety when running at night or in low light.

Pick up the Oiselle Flyer Jacket for women in flame pink or fresh green, which looks more like a yellow. Sizes medium, large, and extra-large are available between the two colour options.

I found a few other jackets on sale around 50% off or more. This Prana Conrad Jacket was $125 and is now on sale for $59. The men’s jacket is available in sizes small and medium. The deep teal colour is different and this men’s jacket has interior ventilation and plenty of pockets for valuables.

This MEC Kimberlite Jacket is another good choice for women who cannot find their size in the Oiselle above. The Kimberlite jacket is more for everyday wear. This jacket has quilted insulation underneath a water-resistant exterior. Keep warm and keep dry at the same time. With the longer length, your butt and hips stay warm as well. Originally $139, the jacket is now on sale for $68. Sizes extra-small and small are still in stock.

If you are shipping at Mountain Equipment Co-op then you should check out their lower priced items as well. These MEC Humboldt SQ 2mm Fingerless Gloves are a great add on item. Originally $19, they are now $5. Pick up an inexpensive toque as well. The MEC Penitentes Toque (Unisex) was $10 and is now $5.

Mabel’s Labels: 40% Off Shoe Labels Was $21 | Now $12.60 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 31, 2015 at 6:24 PM

Mabels Labels: 40% Off Shoe Labels Was $21 | Now $12.60 & Free Shipping

Mabel’s Labels is currently offering 40% off shoe labels. The label pack was $21 and is now on sale for $12.60 with free shipping.

You can buy an unlimited number of packs at this sale price. It may take Mabel’s Labels up to a week to ship out your labels due to an increase in demand during this sale. Coupons and vouchers cannot be used in conjunction with sale prices.

Choose from three solid colours or over 40 multi-coloured designs for the regular shoe labels. Each pack comes with 24 duplicate labels in the pattern or colour of your choice. Each label can have up to 20 characters on it, which should be sufficient for most first and last names. You may even want to put your child’s middle name on the labels.

There are 24 labels per package, which gives you enough labels for 12 pairs of shoes when you put a label in each shoe. Shoe labels are especially useful at school where kids may wear the same brand and even the same style of shoe. Your child can find his or her shoes and other children will know those shoes are not their own.

I think these labels are good for anyone who needs to leave their shoes in a public place. I have often wondered whether my shoes would find their way back onto my feet after leaving them out front at the dentist or other place. Several of the swimming pools I used to frequent had a winter boot rack out front. The tried to enforce the policy for members to remove all winter boots at the door and leave them on the boot rack in order to keep the change rooms cleaner. Many a time I wondered if my simple black winter boots would be mistaken for someone else’s boots.

As you may note, there are two different label packs. The pre-school labels are smaller so they can fit into your young child’s shoes. These labels are still enough for 12 pairs of shoes so stick them on rain boots, in winter boots, sneakers, gym shoes, and more.

As per usual, you will receive free shipping on all orders at Mabel’s Labels.

$10 Off $30 Sunday To Thursday @ Montana’s BBQ & Bar

$10 Off $30 Sunday To Thursday @ Montanas BBQ & Bar

Chances are you and your hubby need more date nights. If you are frugal like I am, then you are constantly thinking that it is too expensive, or money can be better spent elsewhere. Here is a little incentive to get out to that romantic dinner at Montana’s BBQ & Bar. Right now Montana’s has a printable coupon to take $10 off when you spend $30.

This Montana’s BBQ & Bar print coupon will get you $10 off when you spend $30. This coupon can only be used Sunday to Thursday between the 31st of March and the 13th of April. While it may seem unfortunate that this coupon cannot be used on Fridays and Saturdays, in all reality, babysitters are much cheaper during the week nights anyway. You can either print this coupon or display it to your waitress on your smartphone.

Montana’s even has their new lunch deals available, with some of the items on the menu being under $10. So even if you wanted to go on a lunch date, I bet you could get two meals and soft drinks for under $30. Then when you use this coupon you will only pay $20! There are lots of appealing items on this part of the Montana’s Menu. The Cookhouse Lunch Trio is just $9.99. This trio will allow you to pick a half sandwich and a salad or soup. You can add cheese or dusted onions for $0.99 more.

If you are looking for a healthier alternative, the Lunch Size Apple Pecan Salad is just delicious, and only $8.99. This salad boasts goat cheese, red pepper strips, spicy glazed pecans, fresh apple and dried cranberries. Don’t forget the mixed greens of course. It is normally served with Balsamic Vinaigrette but you can substitute that for whatever dressing you like. Shrimp skewers can even be added for $4.99. 

You will be limited to one coupon per table. Unfortunately alcoholic beverages cannot be included in this offer, but they seem pretty reasonably priced at Montana’s anyway. If you were interested in the lunch menu items I talked about, then just keep in mind that Montana’s BBQ & Grill serves lunch until 4PM everyday. Which should give you lots of time to get in and get your desired meal, even if the babysitter runs late.

SiriusXM: FREE Satellite Radio w/ Subscription! *BUMP!*

SiriusXM: FREE Satellite Radio w/ Subscription! *BUMP!*

*Bump! Sirius XM has this deal on again, so you might want to check it out.* SiriusXM Canada is making it easier to get into their service by offering free devices!

One of the biggest inhibitors to adoption of new services is a need for new equipment. If you want eBooks, you need an eReader. If you want satellite radio stations, you need a satellite radio. SiriusXM is offering you the chance to get beyond that initial cost by offering FREE radios when you sign up for a subscription. The length of the subscription depends on the radio you are getting. Some of the better radios aren’t free but rather discounted so if you want the super high end stuff, you may have to pay a bit.

I have SiriusXM built into my truck but I’ve never used it. It doesn’t hold a huge amount of interest for me but there are two guys who I work with that absolutely swear by it. One guy is borderline obsessed, I think. I guess it all comes down to what you need. I listen to about 17 hours of pod casts a week and I am always listening to audio books so I don’t need SiriusXM. Check out the SiriusXM channel list, I’m sure there will be a lot for you to listen to.

Villeroy & Boch Canada: Allegorie Premium Wine Glasses Were $60 | Now $22 (EXPIRED)

Villeroy & Boch Canada: Allegorie Premium Wine Glasses Were $60 | Now $22 (EXPIRED)

Villeroy & Boch is having a flash sale, which ends today at 2pm EST. You’ll get 25% off everything, with the discount showing up in your cart. I found a very hot deal on these Allegorie Premium wine glasses, which were $60 and already on sale for $29.95. In your cart, each glass will discount down to $22.49.

I need a nice wine glass to enjoy my wine. My husband has drank wine from plastic cups and enjoys it just as much, but I need the full experience with a nice glass. I even find when drinking from glass, the wine does not taste as nice – I need crystal and I need a nice looking glass too. Of course, if I don’t have the right glass it won’t stop me from drinking, but I really enjoy the perfect wine glass.

There isn’t much information on these glasses on Villeroy & Boch’s site, but as you can see from the photo, they are a very simple, long and thin stemmed glass with a classic style made from crystal glass. I think they are beautiful and am imagining drinking a nice vintage from these.

There are different styles of glasses for each type of wine, all with the same price point.

I think a few of each glass would be the perfect way to stock your glassware. This would make a fantastic gift for a wedding, as a bride and groom would definitely appreciate having their glassware stocked with beautiful glasses that they no doubt wouldn’t buy themselves after paying for a wedding. In fact, I got most of the glassware I have now from my wedding.

Shipping is free on a $250 purchase, which is about 11 glasses. Otherwise, you are looking at a $20 delivery charge for your order. You could also see what else on the site piques your interest, as everything will be discounted by that extra 25% off in your cart until 2pm today.
