For Teachers! Teacher Appreciation Day at Staples and Office Depot

Here in St. Petersburg (or if you aren't in St. Pete go here to see your location's date and time) on August 13th, Staples on 34th St. N. is having its Teacher Appreciation Day.  Teachers who come and show their certification card will get a free gift bag (limited to first 100 teachers) and coupons to help save on supplies for their classroom.  It starts at 9 AM.  Also, teachers are able to get up to 20 $.01 items whereas the general public is only allowed to get 2.
At Office Depot they are also having a Teacher Appreciation day on August 13th  from 9-11am.  They are having free breakfast and free giveaways. (Luckily there is an Office Depot right across from Staples so you can hit them both pretty easily!)  Teachers do have to join their Star Teacher program, but it is free.  And as a member you get 20% off instantly during your event week (which is Aug.7-13).  Go here to see the details and to join.  
Its nice to see stores helping out teachers, especially when they usually don't get the respect they deserve!

Target Toy Clearance is ON!

Went this morning (not as early as I had planned) around 9 AM to the Pinellas Park Target and they were just starting to mark toys down, so I hadn't missed much!  Apparently from talking to other shoppers, the Tyrone store had already marked their stuff down early this morning.  But I loaded my buggy full of toys I was interested in and took them to one of the kind ladies doing the markdowns and they would scan each toy and stick the new sticker on for me.  There were a couple of toys that didn't go all the way down to 75%, so I put them back.   I'll update with the list as soon as I can, but I wanted to get the word out that they are dropping the prices today.

Omaha Steaks free ship and free 2 lb. ham

I know a few people who like Omaha Steaks so here is a deal with those in mind.  You can order anything from  Omaha Steaks (the cheapest item looks to be 3.99 for their item no. 00703 Lemon Parsley Butter) and enter the code 395CHA where it says "enter item number" and you will get a free 2 1b. ham and free shipping.  This offer is not valid with any other offers so unfortunately it can't be stacked with other freebies.  But there are several value deals to be had, just look around and find something you like!  Their food is of excellent quality.

Correction: Big Lots is going to have the Cricut Cake (not Expression), Shark Steam Mop

I just got the ad for next week for Big Lots and they are going to have the Cricut Cake Expression (the 12x24) machine for $140.  This is a decent price for a brand-new Cake machine.  They are also going to have Cricut cartridges for $25 which is also not a bad deal.  They also have some other things that are pretty good prices on.  Such as the Basic Shark Steam Mop for $39.  I paid $35 for mine on Black Friday so its not a bad deal, and I LOVE my Shark Steam Mop.  I have mostly laminate and tile floors and I feel that they are so much cleaner after I use my steamer!  Here is a link to the Ad

Cheap Wii games at Walmart

Walmart has the Wii game Epic Mickey right now for $19.99 and it ships free to your house.  I have this game and love playing it (when I have the time), but it is only a one player game.

UPDATED: Target Summer Toy Clearance

Twice a year Target clearances a lot of their toys.  Once starting in January to clear out the excess Christmas toy stock and then again starting in May/June to make room for the next Christmas season toy stock.  By beginning to end of March and by mid to late July the toys will reach 75% off the original price.  I LOVE to hit this sale when it goes 75% off!  I stock up for Christmas presents and birthday presents and its a great way to get gifts for charity organizations like Toys for Tots!  Well, it is getting close to that time of year and will be coming up in the next two weeks is my guess.  The toys are now either 30 or 50% off but on either this Thursday (Thursday is the common day for most Targets to mark down the toy dept.) or next, they will mark them further down.  So if you happen upon your "mother-load" of the big Target toy clearance, let me know your finds!  And I will be sure and update you on what I find!  Good luck with the hunt!

UPDATE 7/21/11:  I went this morning to the Pinellas Park Target in case they were lowering the prices to reflect 75% off but they were not doing so.  They were marking things down from 30 to 50% off so I am still keeping my fingers crossed that the toys will go 75% off next week!  If you have anything different to report at different Targets, feel free to leave a comment!
