Mott’s Movie Promo ~ Free Ticket to See “The Secret Life of Pets” w/ purchase

secret_life_ef_pets

My family sees a lot of movies in the theater.  I’ll be the first to admit it’s not a true bargain thing to do, but … we still choose to do it.   Our theory is that we save on what we can, to spend on what we want.

But, when a deal comes along for movies, I’m thrilled!  Spending less is always preferred!!

motts

I saw these bottles of Mott’s apple juice (pictured above) and couldn’t resist.  They are $2.79 (thru 9/6) at Fry’s, but they (or other Mott’s products) might also be available at other stores, so keep watching for them.  Details here.

  • Buy 3 specially marked Mott’s products, get a free child’s admission ticket to see The Secret Life of Pets.
  • Go here to fill out info. and upload a copy of your receipt.
  • Receive an email with and code and instructions how to print a Hollywood Movie Money/ticket to take to theaters by 8/31/16 or while The Secret Life of Pets is still in theaters.  (Hollywood Movie Money is taken at Harkins.)
  • Full details here.

At Harkins, kids’ tickets are $6.  So, in my bargain mind, it’s like I’m paying only 79¢ for each 6-pk of juice, which is a stock up price to me.  I can tell you now … we’re going to shell out the six bucks for the money anyway.  I might as well get cheap juice out of it.

Now, be careful!  So many people who do these types of deals “double think” the bargain.  If you think you’re paying 79¢ for the apple juice, you’re not getting a free movie.  If you think you’re getting a free movie, you’re not paying 79¢ for the juice.  Sorry — a bargain pet peeve of mine.  You’re only getting one of those bargains — or split the difference and get both as semi-bargains.  :)

There’s another super movie deal going on now for Finding Dory tickets.  Go here for details.

Details are here for Tempe (through June 20th or while supplies last) and here for Desert Ridge (through June 20th or while supplies last).

It sounds like a lot of money, but when you see the list of stores included at each location, you’ll probably realize it’s not hard to hit.  Go here for Tempe Marketplace and here for Desert Ridge details.  There’s a drop down menu with all the stores listed.  Look for places like Target, Michael’s, Albertson’s, CVS, restaurants, etc.  ** You could also buy gift cards and make your “real” purchase later.  Just make sure you have $200 in receipts from ONE day.

You will need to bring your receipts from one day of shopping (don’t have to be turned in the same day) to their management office Monday – Friday from 8:30am – 5:00pm.  The links above tell you exactly where to find the offices.

Here’s their fine print:

Applies to purchases made between June 1-20, 2016. While supplies last. Limit 2 free vouchers per person. Must be 18 or older to participate. Other restrictions may apply. Vouchers are valid for one of the following shows: Thursday, June 23rd at 1pm & 7pm and Friday, June 24th at 11am & 7pm. Vouchers must be redeemed at the Box Office at Talking Stick Arena for actual tickets.

**  Note:  Call the Tempe Marketplace or Desert Ridge office, if you are making a special purchase to get these.  Make sure they still have some left!  And, if you a buying a gift card and want to be 100% safe, you may want verify that you still can.  I did it before and know others have, but you just never know when they might decide to change things.  I don’t want anyone too sad!  :)

Dbacks Won ~ Deals Today at Taco Bell, Circle K, Papa John’s and Jack in the Box

The Dbacks were in a slump, but they had a great game yesterday.  They beat the Rays 5-0 at home.

Pick up the following deals today (Wednesday)….

 

taco_bell

Taco Bell is doing the same promotion they’ve done for several years, but it’s 5 runs instead of 6!

For Arizona residents, participating Taco Bells will give you three free tacos when you purchase a large drink, if the Diamondbacks score at least 5 runs.  (Home or away games. A win or loss doesn’t matter — well, for the tacos!)  :)  The deal is only good the day after the game from 4pm – 6pm.   No coupon is necessary.  Large drinks were $1.69 at my Taco Bell last year.

Here’s a link to their schedule.  It also lists the scores of past games, so you can see if they scored 5 runs!

Last year, you could pay 30¢ more for a limeade of freeze, 30¢ extra for each Dorito taco you wanted, or get all three “D-backs style” (sour cream & tomatoes) for $1.  I’m guessing it will be the same this year.

**  I’ve heard of rare Taco Bells in Arizona that don’t participate.  It’s safest to call yours before going, just to make sure.

papa_dbacks

“All season long, the day after every Dbacks win you get 50% off your regular menu price online order. They won last night, so you get 50% off your total online order today!”

Order online at Papa John’s and use the code DBACKS50

Remember it’s after EVERY win, all season long! (home or away games)

Here’s some other codes in case you need to order another day:

Here are other codes I try, when I want to get 50% off my online orders . .

ASU50 (after different sports teams win)
COYOTES (when in season)
CARDINALS (when in season)

If those fail and you don’t have points saved:
SAVE25 (for 25% off)

circle k polar pop

Circle K has a Strike Out Meter for the Dbacks. During regular season home games, you’ll get a freebie based on the strike outs. The more strike outs, the better the deal!

You need to download their app to your phone to get this deal. Go here to get the app. The deal will automatically get sent to your smartphone “as a deal” in the app. Follow the app instructions on claiming the deal. You’ll just need to show the offer on your phone to the cashier.

Today’s deal is a free soda.  No other purchase is needed.

jack_in_the_box_logo

If any Dbacks player “Jacks” a home run out of the park, fans can go Jack in the Box the next day to receive a free Jumbo Jack with the purchase of a large drink.  The location I called charges $2.39 for a large drink.

If you’re not a Dbacks follower, you can do a quick internet search for “dbacks score” and you’ll see that you can click for highlights or a recap.  They should tell you if there was a home run, in their summary.

Not all restaurants are participating.  Rose says the 7th St. & Indian School location is not.  (Thanks, Rose!)

diamondbacks_logo

The AZ Diamondbacks has a great promotion for kids.  No Chew Crew membership is free to children 15 and younger who pledge awareness of the harmful effects of spit tobacco and “Say NO to spit tobacco.” Parents/guardians must be 18 years or older to register a child for the No Chew Crew.

Kids who take the pledge can get in free to select games.  You can read all about it here.

And when you are at one of the games, register to be part of the Dbacks Kids Club.  All children ages 3-15 are eligible, with a parent’s permission, to sign up for the club at the D-backs Kid’s Club HQ located in the Phoenix Children’s Hospital Sandlot, near section 332.

Kids can enjoy a free lemonade when they show their D-backs Kid’s Club card at Raising Cane’s, offer valid at all participating stores and with purchase.

You can earn other prizes too! Members simply scan their membership card at specially marked fan kiosks throughout Chase Field and receive a slip redeemable at the Kid’s Club HQ for a prize. Members earn a free prize for each of the first 20 games attended and a bonus prize at game 25 and 30! Kids must be presented to redeem prize.

You can read all about Raising Canes and the Dbacks Kids Club here.

Renew Pogo Passes Before Expiration to Save $5 ~ (New Policy!)

rising_prices_ahead
I wanted to make sure that those of you who have had Pogo Passes for awhile and are used to the way things have been working, understand there’s a change coming.

Up until now, once you bought a Pogo Pass, you could log into your account anytime and pay $5 less, if you wanted to renew your passes.  (You would pay $34.95 vs $39.95.)  That will be going away, effective July 1, 12016.   To get the $5 discount, you will need to renew your pass BEFORE it expires.  If you wait until after the expiration date, you will need to pay $39.95.

If you have an expired pass right now, they are allowing you up until June 30, 2016 to login to your account and still take advantage of the $5 off.  If you’re pass has expired — RENEW soon!!

If you don’t have a pass … they’re a super value!  Pay $39.98 with this link or code BARGAIN.

The pass gets you into multiple venues for 365 days, for one price.  You are able to visit some places more than once.  It’s a true bargain.  We love our passes!
