Many of you know that I live in a small town, so I have to drive 20 miles to shop, and even then I don't have a whole lot of shopping options (just Walgreens*, Walmart and Target). I was ecstatic to spend the last two days in Sioux Falls, South Dakota shopping with a friend at stores that aren't available to me here near hickville.
Here's the Deals I took advantage of…
Gordman's – Extra 50% off Clearance Prices for Cardholder members
JCPenney's – Redeemed my $10 off $10 coupon I received in the mail
Kmart – Double Coupons! Common Sense with Money lists the Best Deals and Coupon Matches – exp 10/3
The Empire Mall is really a nice mall – the layout is somewhat confusing, but it is abundant with great shops. Plus we had fun trying out the photo booth and massaging chairs!
And then there's the Food I don't normally get to divulge in…
Cinnabon – the one I used to visit in Omaha is now closed, so this was a real treat
Cracker Barrel – I had never eaten at one of these restaurants before, and it was so good – tasted better than homemade! Plus the gift shop included some neat retro toys and candy. We were too stuffed to order dessert, but the Double Fudge Coca-Cola cake looked so good! I found the recipe online and plan to make it tomorrow!
Old Chicago – my absolutely favorite pizza place – hint, eat during “happy hour” when you can get stuffed on the appetizer specials which include mini pizzas.
To top off the fun trip, I had enough Choice Hotels points to redeem for a free hotel room for the night. I wish I had remembered that I had free Fandango movie gift certificates to redeem that I won from Blingo. Plus my friend won some money at the casino so the trip was quite profitable for him! Now, I am exhausted and ready for bed!
*Walgreens currently has some great deals that I took advantage of this week as well. Deal Seeking Mom lists the deals of the week.
