A reader sent in this tip: FedEx Office stores are offering 50% off canvas prints right now! This includes 16×20, 18×24, and 24×36 prints, and the sale is valid through March 2nd. Go here for pricing and to start and order.
A funny thing happened the other day at a different office store – Jeremy had our renovation blueprints printed, but right before his order they’d printed something on canvas, and forgot to change the paper in the printer, and so our blueprints got printed on canvas! It wasn’t like they were going to be able to do anything else with them, so they let him have them for the cheapo price of blueprints and Jeremy thinks they’re pretty cool. :) (Though they weren’t quite the finals, unfortunately!)
Naomi let me know that the Albertsons at Cheyenne Mountain Blvd. and Highway 115 is going out of business, and as of today, the store is 40-60% off. They are not honoring the regular sale ad. Naomi said their last day is supposed to be March 12th, and I would imagine the sales will get even better as that gets closer!
IHOP’s annual National Pancake Day celebration will take place on Tuesday, March 3rd. Stop by a participating location and make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network to get a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes – no other purchase required!
I believe that this takes place all day long, so you can go for breakfast, lunch, supper, or snack! Here’s their official website.
You can get Lysol cleaners for $1.00 after coupon, the big size of All detergent for $4.00 after coupon, and P.F. Chang’s meals for $4.00 after coupon this week at Safeway!
