  • Midday Coffee: Hot Groupon Deals

    GrouponAs I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been buying one Groupon a week, and this week’s purchase was a $40 certificate to Fairy Tale Brownies for $20 – it’s either going to be a thank you gift or a holiday gift, and I just might have to get another one today. I’ve been buying a lot of food gifts with my Groupons. :) You can get this Groupon today in Providence or Boise (just click on “Visit More Cities” at the top of the page). Another Groupon deal is a $20 certificate to for $10 (get free shipping with orders over $25) – head to Brooklyn, Long Island, North Jersey, and Queens for this deal. Or get 4 movie tickets for just $20 at, no subscription required, in Salt Lake City. (Hat tip: Mrs. Moneysaver.) Links via

    Mambo Sprouts has some new printable coupons, including 50 cents/1 Lara Bar, making them free with a $1 sale and double coupons. (Via Money Saving Mom.)

    Moneywise Moms shares some turkey pesto rollups she made for her kid’s lunch. I was just thinking that I need to see if the boys will eat rollups, just for variety’s sake. I love the pesto idea, although I’ll probably have to make my own to avoid certain allergens.

    Get a free sample of Playtex Sport via Walmart (I think it’s a new link, since it worked for me).

    Stretching a Buck shares the bad couponing experience she had at her favorite store – so now you know for sure that it happens to the best of us!
