-Top 5 Tips For Surviving Black Friday:
1.  Be Prepared-Have a list and know store hours and maps.  Gas Up the night before.  Know the best prices (use my price comparison maps).
2.  Bring ads-these are helpful for price matching
3.  Bring a Friend-One of you stand in line while the other shops, or divide and conquer on snagging deals.
4.  Keep Receipts
5.  Shop Online-Many stores start their sales online before they start in the store.  If you miss the deal online, then you know you need to head to the store.
Don’t forget about Free Speed Stick GEAR at Walgreens on Black Friday!

Veteran’s Day Freebies 2014

veterans day

Veterans Day is November 11, 2014 and there are a TON of freebies and discounts that military members can get this year.  I think this very well could be the largest list I’ve seen!

Here are some Helpful Tips:

  • Be sure to bring proof of military service, uniform photo or be in uniform. Proof of military service varies by company. Acceptable forms of ID include (but not limited to) DD214, Military ID, Retired Military ID, Drivers License with Veteran designation, American Legion/VFW/AMVET Membership Card.
  • Pay attention to the dates on the Veterans Day offer as some offers are for Sunday November 10th or extended over several days.
  • Many of the restaurants free meals are for dine in only.
  • Many of these promotions include small print that says participating locations only. Unfortunately individual franchisees may choose not to participate. Fortunately, some franchisee’s participate even if the corporate company does not. Please call the restaurant before you leave home to make sure they are taking part.
  • Most importantly, Thank you for your service!
