Free 24pk single-use batteries with Harbor Freight coupon

Harbor Freight has coupons in many places these days, including printed glossy magazines. This coupon I spotted in the Valpak envelope coupons that come with the weekly grocery ads in the mailbox. The coupon gets you a FREE 24-pack of single use batteries, AA or AAA, your choice. You can walk into their store and get these for free after coupon. Not sure if you have to pay sales tax. Coupon expires 3/1/18.

Samy’s B&M stores: Rent for Labor Day Weekend, Pay For One Day

If you are near a participating Samy’s Camera brick and mortar store, they have a new Labor Day weekend promotion. You can pick up a rental during the weekend, return by Tuesday 9/5/17 at 11am local time and pay for ONLY ONE DAY. Details and more questions on their Twitter:

The Weekly Fry’s coupon for their email subscribers (free to join), running from Sunday until Saturday 8/19/17 PM, including an offer that gets you a $50 Fry’s Gift Card with the purchase of the GOPRO HERO5 Black action camera going for its regular price of $399. The offer is only available at their Brick and Mortar stores. Limit three per customer.

Fry’s B&M stores: 20% off Photo Papers

If you feel like going outside *GASP* and your outside world includes Fry’s brick and mortar stores, good until Saturday 8/19/17 PM, they offer 20% off the photo papers available at their brick and mortar stores. Doorbusters are excluded. Limit five per customer. I’m not sure if the weekly promo code is needed for this offer ~ the box with the offer does not mention the need for a Promo Code. This offer is only available at B&M Fry’s stores.

Vanguard Espod CX 203AP for $35 (Fry’s Promo Codes)

The Fry’s weekly promo codes (running Sunday AM until Saturday PM) for this week, including the new condition Vanguard Espod CX 203AP going for $35. Limit one per customer. You can get this at their B&M stores or online. The promo codes are delivered to your email, and the codes are unique for every shopper. These days this is how Fry’s does the majority of their deals. This goes for $50 elsewhere.

Pay $15, Get $40 to spend through Google Express (new users only)

Speaking of Price Club / Costco (for those not old enough to remember 1993, they merged in 1993), they are among the retailers that are participating in Google Express, along with Fry’s, Tarjay, Staples, etc. For first time Google Express customers, Groupon has a Pay $15, Get $40 to spend thru Google Express promotion. That is a pretty good discount, especially if you can keep your order close to the minimum.

Limit one for you and another one as a gift. The offer is for new Google Express users. I haven’t made a Google Express purchase yet, but I believe tipping for the delivery is expected?

B&M only: Load $20+ Cash to your Amazon Account, Get $10 promo credit

This may sound a bit counter-intuitive if you hadn’t heard of it before, but Amazon has a new feature where you walk into a brick and mortar chain store, you hand them cold hard cash, and said cold hard cash magically appears as a balance in your Amazon.com account. You pay no fees for this service (take that PayPal!).

To encourage people to use this relatively new Amazon Cash service, Amazon has launched a new promotion. If you load $20+ before 7/31/17, you will receive (later via email) a $10 Amazon promotional store credit to spend in the future. So if you load exactly $20, it’s like getting 50% more. The $10 promotional store credit must be spent by 8/31/17. The $20+ balance is a gift card balance, it never expires.

A barcode is generated that is a link to your Amazon account. You show that barcode at the B&M store when you load your cold hard cash. The bar code can be generated with a web browser or using the Amazon app. Details on how to generate and save it at the linked pages. You can even print it.

A number of chain stores are participating in this promotion, including GameStop, CVS, Fred’s, Speedway, KwikTrip, and more.

Make sure you get a receipt of the transaction ~ in case any enterprising employees decide to be “adventurous” with the promotion during the early days 🙂

I will attempt this promotion the next time I’m near one of the participating stores. I will post another post chronicling my “adventure” 🙂

It is interesting how Amazon is sending foot traffic to brick and mortar stores in order to encourage customers to shop online 🙂

B&M: Get $10 store rewards on $50 Google Play Gift Card

If you live in the Android Google PLAY ecosystem, CVS B&M stores offer $10 back in CVS ExtraBucks when you purchase a $50 Google PLAY gift card until Saturday night (June 27, 2017). Limit one per customer for the week. Of interest if you buy camera and photo e-books or apps or photography documentaries (or any other content) from Google PLAY.

Fry’s Doorbuster: 20pk 5×7″ photo paper for $0.49 [limit five sets]

Fry’s Electronics have an online and in-store doorbuster, you can get a 20pk of 5×7-inch photo paper (Meritline brand, glossy, model 175-064) for $0.49. That’s 2.5-cents per sheet. Limit five 20-packs per customer. Offer ends 4/7/17 or earlier if sold out. Inventory varies by store. Store pickup is also an option, along with online shipment and in-person delivery. YMMV based on location and availability.

NOTE: this is NOT a Promo Code offer. Anyone can buy it without signing up for their e-mail list.

Mike’s Camera B&M: $20 off $40+ single item (CO, CA)

At Mike’s Camera brick and mortar stores in Colorado and California (these are the only states they currently have stores in), until Cyber Monday, a coupon found in the print ad in the newspapers and also on the Weekly Ad section of their website gets you $20 off a single item priced $40 or more. The coupon is good until Cyber Monday. The coupon can only be used in-store. Here’s how it looks (it’s in the last page of their current Weekly Ad):

B&M Heads up (June 5-11): 50% off HP, Canon, Epson Photo Paper

According to the sneak peek weekly ad posted on the Staples website, for the shopping week of June 5-11 in 2016 (Sunday AM until Saturday PM), they will have a 50% off sale on HP, Epson and Canon photo papers. The sale price is off the list price most likely, so YMMV as to how good it might be compared to the rest of the market. Particularly of interest if you have Staples Rewards or Store Credit or Gift Cards you want to spend. I don’t know if the sale will be online as well as the Weekly Ad covers their stores mostly.

April 17-23: 50% off Canon Photo Paper (Staples B&M)

For the week of April 17 to 23 in 2016, at Staples brick and mortar stores, they will have a 50% off sale on all the Canon photo paper they carry in the store. No coupon is needed, the prices will be adjusted by their system automatically. Price check these since 50% off may or may not be a good deal depending on the paper. At the same time they will also have a promotion that gets you 25% back in Staples Rewards (if you are a Rewards member), so the combination (assuming photo paper is eligible), could make it a good deal. The promotion is limit two per customer but you can visit the stores multiple times. Keep that wig and fake mustache handy 😉

Limit two per customer during this week. That’s 16% back in rewards. This offer will be available at Rite Aid B&M stores. I do not know if it will be available at the Rite Aid website as well.
