Amazon.com is having a pretty cool sale on Hasbro games, perfect in time for the holidays. Buy two participating products, get a third for free! This means that, depending on the games you choose, you can get 3 games for $20. A good way to buy some smaller gifts, as well as gifts for children. And, of course, just something to do with the family on Christmas day. Check out the games available right here.

Some good deals on certain E.L.F. Cosmetics, such as eye shadow and lipgloss. Looks like the shipping time is considerable, so it might not make it in time for Christmas gifts, however.

Not a huge deal, but it’s worth checking out. Sign up at Groupon.com (which you should do anyway, since it’s an awesome site with daily, local deals). Go to My Account—>My Gifts. Then enter the code SURPSLICK for $1 credit to your account. Gotta be quick, though, since it’s limited.

Some printables for Marie Callender stuff
The steamer coupon should mean you can get one of those meals for $1-$1.50
The pie one is alright. But even better if you print 2 and hope for a B1G1 sale sometime in the next month.

Pretty good Groupon going on for the next day or so. Spend $25, get $50 off your purchase at Nordstrom Rack. Never been to Nordstrom Rack? Why not? Personally, I’m a very casual dresser, so I’m perfectly fine with Old Navy t-shirts and jeans. But I threw down $50 a few months ago on a marked-down pair of designer jeans and I have to say they’re pretty fantastic. Better fit, better look, all that. (PROTIP: If you’ve never owned a ‘good’ pair of jeans before, google how to properly wash them. Many people don’t wash their new jeans for months to keep the bold blue color). And that’s pretty much what “The Rack” is, designer clothing of various types marked down to ridiculous prices. Get yourself some sexy jeans, a nice tie, an awesome winter coat, whatever! They even have a tailor on-site to ensure your new clothing fits you perfectly; I didn’t take advantage of this service when I went, but I’m –pretty- sure they’ll do things like hem a pair of jeans for free. If you have one of these in your area, go check it out (and try some stuff on). Anyway, the Groupon deal is nationwide so just set Groupon to use your closest city and you should see the deal somewhere!
Are you more a fan of American Apparel? Well, lucky you, they’re doing pretty much the same thing!
NOTE: It may not link directly to the Nordstrom Rack deal, but you should see it to the right of the main offer.

Amazon has another awesome video game deal going on, for consoles only. This time, if you buy 1 game, you get the 2nd at 40% off. More or less, that’s 2 new $60 console games for $96. Pretty damn good selection too. Everything from New Vegas to GoldenEye to Call of Duty: Black Ops to Dance Central to Dead Rising 2! And, of course, there are plenty of older and cheaper games that qualify as well. As usual, make sure to buy similarly-priced games to get the best deal. Get two $50 games or two $30 games. Don’t get a $50 and a $25 unless those are really the only two you want.

A few printables worth mentioning. Make sure to click the ‘back’ button after printing to try and get a second one!
Usually costs about $5, so this is a great coupon
Should be under a buck after the coupon
Like them on Facebook, get a $1 coupon to print out

Amazon.com is also doing the Buy 2 Get 1 Free video games deal! Very awesome. Especially since they offer free shipping (Free 2-day shipping if you’re a member of Amazon Prime). Lots of awesome games up for grabs here, as well as older ones. Of course, make sure to get similarly priced games to max out your deal. Buy 2 $20 games, get a $20 one free. Buy 2 $60 games, get a $60 free. No point in wasting your freebie on a game far cheaper than the other two you’re getting! Here are just some of the recommendations:
Fallout New Vegas
Dead Rising 2
Rock Band 3
Assassin’s Creed II
Batman: Arkham Asylum Greatest Hits
Demon’s Souls Greatest Hits

Alriiight, time for one of my favorite sales! There was one of these at the beginning of the month, where the gift certificates were $1, but their Halloween sale isn’t too shabby either! $25 restaurant gift certificates for $2. What’s the catch? Most of these $25 GCs require a minimum purchase of $35. That’s before tax+gratuity, but still ends up being a fantastic deal. My wife and I went to a local diner-type restaurant with one of these and got:
2 Hamburgers w/sides
2 slices of Cheesecake
Ended up just above $35. More like $45 with tax and tip. And we ended up spending $20 out of pocket (plus the $1 for the certificate). So basically you’re getting a meal at about half price. Also worth nothing, alcohol does not count toward the minimum purchase requirement.
I would also recommend checking www.yelp.com for reviews on particular restaurants since you’re sure to run into many you’ve never heard of. Some will be awesome hole-in-the-wall restaurants while others will be, well, just holes. These certificates do not expire, but most limit you to using one per restaurant, per month. It’s a great way to stock up on certificates for restaurants you already know and love, and to try out new restaurants or types of food without spending too much.
- Go to http://www.restaurant.com and add the certificates you want to your cart, and also make sure to read the specific terms/requirements for each restaurant you choose.
- Enter the promotional code TREAT when in your cart/checkout.
- It should apply 80% off which, for the standard “$25 for $10” certificates will instead become “$25 for $2”
- Enjoy your delicious, cheap dining-out experiences!

I remember Toys R Us used to do these sales around Oct/Nov, and it looks like Target’s doing the same next week. Do keep in mind that some of these games (Red Read Redemption, SMB Wii) can be found for cheaper than these listed prices anyway, so throw your money at some of the really new stuff like Gran Turismo 5 and Fable 3! I also remember in my Freshman year of college when I used one of these deals on Metal Gear Solid 2, Grand Theft Auto 3, and Final Fantasy X. Who needs studying?

When I buy frozen pizza, thin crust isn’t usually what I seek out. I go for Freschetta. Or Digiorno. Especially Digiorno stuffed-crust pizza which NEVER GOES ON SALE. Really, it’s me justifying things, since a big, thick-crust pizza could fill up me and my wife. One of these guys, though, I could polish off by myself.
Nonetheless! This site is letting you print out $2 off 1 California Pizza Kitchen product, which is a good deal. They also sell even smaller Pizza For One (the microwave things) products which should end up being 0.50-1.00 after this coupon. You can print this coupon out twice per computer, and it expires a month after printing, so get to it!

Free Weapons download if you have Fable 3. Not a 360 gamer anymore, myself, so I’m not sure what all is included but, well, it should be a no-brainer download if you have or plan on getting Fable III.
