Spend 1400+ Plenti Points at Exxon, Get 300 Back

This is a great deal if you have a car! If you refill your car at an Exxon-Mobil gas station and spend at least 1400 Plenti Points ($14 equivalent) to pay for your gas refill, you will earn 300 Plenti points back. You have until 12/31/17 to do this. FIRST though you must activate the offer in your Plenti account using their website or app.

This is an awesome offer, assuming you stay close to a $14 refill, eg $15, it’s like getting 20% back! If you don’t have enough points now, Rite Aid is running a lot of weekly gift card Plenti point promotions, so that’s an easy way to stock up on Plenti points. There are many of 500 Plenti points on $25 gift card offers!

Buy $60+ at the Walgreens website, Get 18,000 Rewards Points

A new “Balance Rewards” promotion is running at the Walgreens website. Good until Saturday night (11/18/17), you can get 18,000 Balance Reward points when you make a purchase of $60 or more at their website.

As usual, some exclusions apply. The offer came in an email to the Walgreens customer emailing list.

18,000 Balance Points are redeemable for $20 off a single Walgreens purchase, or you can redeem them for smaller amounts at 1:1 ratio.

Free shipping with orders of $35+ (which you’ll get since the order total for this offer is $60+). But you also have the option for “Ship to Store” if you prefer to pick up from local store(s).

Walgreens: Spend $20+, Get 7000 Balance Rewards points [must activate]

If you are participating in the Walgreens Balance Rewards program, check your email or their website or your app! A new promotion via coupon (you must clip the coupon first before you can earn the bonus) offers you 7000 Bonus Balance Rewards points (that’s $7 equivalent) when you make qualifying purchases of $20+ at their website or their B&M stores!

The promotion runs November 11-17 in 2017, the usual Sunday AM to Saturday PM week that coincides with their Weekly Ad. The promotion may be in the Weekly Ad, I don’t know?

Dockers Men’s Full-Zip French Terry Jacket for $12 [X-Large; Oatmeal]

Inspired by a Larry David style jacket? Do you like the “Oatmeal” color and you are confident you can keep it clean? Then you are in luck, because just $12 can get you the new condition Dockers Men’s Full-Zip French Terry Jacket in the X-Large size only. The other sizes go for a lot more. Given the style of the jacket, you probably have flexibility by getting a larger/smaller size than you usually get.

Limit up to three per customer at the sale price. Since it’s clothing, you get FREE RETURNS if Amazon actual is the seller. And it is in this case.

If “Oatmeal” is not your thing, the X-Large size is going for only a few dollars more in other sizes. The Olympian Blue goes for $14~, while the modest red goes for $15~. The other sizes go for more, so X-Large is the name of the game for this sale 🙂

YMMV: $1 renewal offer for expiring ESPN the Magazine subscriptions

This is YMMV as I have no way of knowing how their computers decide to whom to offer this and when, but if you have an expiring “ESPN The Magazine” subscription, you may get offered by email a promotion to renew it for an extra year for just $1 for that whole year. I’m not even sure if my subscription is expired or expiring as of the time of writing. I think they keep sending magazines, so it must have no expired yet.

I signed up either during a doorbuster magazine promotion or through a T-Mobile freebie, I don’t remember. I have/had no intention of renewing 🙂

Citizen Eco Drive (BL5440-58E) Watch for $337

If you are looking for an analog world, the water resistant and scuba diving friendly Citizen Men’s Signature Collection Eco-Drive Perpetual Calendar Chronograph Watch, aka model BL5440-58E, is currently on sale for $337 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon actual with up to three per customer during this sale.

This is not a lightning deal, so expiration date is unknown. It averages 4.6 out of 5 based on 14 customer reviews.

Speaking of watches, if you are interested in smartwatches, I have an in-progress review of the Fossil Q Explorist FTW4004 going at our content blog.

Melissa & Doug First Bead Maze for $12 after coupon

We are about two months away from Christmas 2017, and buying for gifts is already in progress for the early planners! A $2 off clip-on coupon at Amazon brings the price of the new condition Melissa & Doug First Bead Maze down from $14 to $12, and Prime eligible.

This is part of their Wooden Educational Toy series and together with their Personalized version, they average 4.4 out of 5 based on nearly 1000 customer reviews and they have 20 answered questions.

Reminder: activate your Discover Q4 Cashback rewards

This is a reminder alert! If you have Discover credit cards, make sure you activate your Q4 5% credit card rewards for 2017! It’s a pretty good get this quarter, it’s Amazon and Target. There is a maximum spending of $1500 per credit card for the quarter, but that’s a $75 cashback bonus, not a small amount!

The quarter runs from October 1st until December 31st in 2017. Unlike the Chase rewards sign-up, the Discover sign-up is NOT retroactive for the quarter. It starts after you activate it. It may take a couple of days for it to kick in, I haven’t tested the exact timing of it because I usually sign up the moment I see the new quarterly offers appear (they usually appear a month before they start).

Here’s a screenshot from their website to remind you:

AMEX Offer: Make $200+ single purchase at Sherwin-Williams, get $50 Back

If you are planning various purchases at Sherwin-Williams brick and mortar stores by mid-December 2017, you may want to group all those purchases into a big $200+ purchase. That’s IF you have an American Express credit card, and IF you go to the AMEX OFFERS section of their website and locate this offer IF you are being offered it in your account.

But if you are, and you accept it, that’s a pretty good cashback amount! If your order total is just over $200 that’s like a 25% off discount. As Larry David likes to say, it’s pretty, pretty, pretty good!

Champion Men’s Open Bottom Jersey pants for $8 [some options only]

Some of the colors and sizes (definitely not all) of the new condition Champion Men’s Open Bottom Jersey pants are on sale for $8. As of the time of writing, among others, the X-Large in the “Oxford Grey” goes for $8, sold and shipped by amazon.com

… which means you get free 2-day shipping as a Prime member (otherwise you need a $25+ order total) but also, because it is a clothing item, you get free returns. Amazon wants to encourage people to buy clothes from their website, thus the free returns policy specifically for clothes.

These 100% cotton pants have been around for a while, they have a review score of 4.1 out of 5 based on over 2000 customer reviews, and have almost 90 answered questions. So everything there is to know about them, has probably already been answered.

When you dig around the Amazon website, both the customer reviews and the answered questions are searchable – if you are looking for specific information. Take a deep breath and then locate their own little search boxes, lost in a sea of all kinds of things that is today’s Amazon product pages 🙂

Kaleidoscope Wonders: Color Art for Everyone for $2.57

If you are looking for a bang for the buck coloring book, in terms of price and time spent to finish it (in other words, you won’t finish in a few minutes, so you have more fun/time with it), you can get the new condition Kaleidoscope Wonders: Color Art for Everyone for just $2.57 at amazon.com. This is a sale price, not a lightning deal.

You can buy as many as you want, up to 80 per shopping cart. This is good if you are planning group activities where you want each person to have their own coloring book. The Amazon Gallery has 28 images showing the designs, so you can tell ahead of time what you are getting.

It is an 8×10 inch kind of a paperback with 48 pages and averages 4.7 out of 5 based on 380+ customer reviews. It is currently the #7 best seller among Adult Coloring Books at amazon.com.

I don’t have this one but will add it to my next Amazon order, especially if I’m dealing with the ADD-ON limit of $25.

Speaking of which, despite the low price, [not to jinx it], this is NOT an Add-On item. This is good news 🙂

Cucisina Zester for $11 [limit 2]

If you like a fancy-looking stainless zester with a sheath, to Amazon we go where currently the new condition Cucisina Zester is on sale for $11 with a maximum of two units per customer during this sale. It is sold by a marketplace seller with the orders fulfilled by Amazon, so Prime members get free 2-day shipping regardless. Otherwise you need a $25+ total.

It has little rubber feet at the bottom so it won’t damage surfaced or skid…

Kirkland Signature Basic Men’s Athletic Shoes for $7 w/free S&H (Size 11.5 only]

If you wear 11.5 Men’s Shoes or know anyone who does, you are in luck! The Kirkland Signature Basic Men’s Athletic Shoes in the white color scheme are on sale for $7 with free shipping at the Costco website. Anyone can buy it. You may be charged a 5% surcharge as a non-member or not. I haven’t bought these.

But I bought these Fila Trail Shoes going for $20 with free shipping (sizes 8.5 through 12). They average 3.2 out of 5 based on 63 customer reviews over there, but I’ve had no problems with mine that I bought in June 2017. Here’s a text and pictures unboxing of them.

25% off Dyson Vacuums priced $50+ with eBay Coupon [max discount $75 off]

It’s not a Dyson sphere. It’s a Dyson vacuum! The official Dyson outlet store on eBay is running a coupon code promotion until 10/16/17 at 8am pacific!

Enter coupon code P25DYSONOUTLET in the eBay shopping cart on eligible products offered and you will get a 25% off discount. The maximum discount received by the coupon is $75. Items must be priced individually at $50 or higher. That’s why the 41 items you see at the promotional page are all priced above $50.

The coupon can be used twice per PayPal account, so you can have a mini Dyson shopping spree 🙂

YMMV: 5% AT&T Universal Cashback on Popular Categories

If you have an AT&T Universal credit card, check your email or account or snail mail you may have received from them. There is a new cashback promotion running for the 4th quarter of 2017 that gets you 5% cashback on select popular categories.

There are two dates to remember:

  • you must activate the offer by 11/30/17 (there is a 1-click activation in their email)
  • keep shopping on those categories (after activating) until 12/31/17
  • the maximum bonus cashback you will receive from this promotion is $25, which, when you do the math, evens out at $625 in purchases. You already earn 1% in regular cashback, so the $25 maximum is on the 4%, not the 5%

Here are the categories, in the screenshot:
