$10 off $20 Fireworks at TNT Tents

fireworks

This is a unique discount that you don’t see everyday!

Through Groupon, pay $10 to get a $20 voucher to spend at any TNT tent set up around town.

The fine print says that you’ll be refunded, if you don’t use the voucher by 7/5/15.  It also says tents come down on 7/4/15.  So … that means get them in time to shoot them off for July 4th — or get a refund.

If you’re not in Arizona, here’s a list of other participating markets.

Disclaimer:  I think some cities allow fireworks and some don’t.  Check what your city’s regulations are.  And … don’t blow yourself up!  :)

(Thanks, Andrea!)

Free Dave & Buster’s Unlimited Play Card w/ $150 Purchase at Tempe Marketplace or Desert Ridge

dave_&_busters

I love deals like this, if you can spend the money on things you would anyway.   I did a similar one a few months ago and it’s super simple and painless!  :)

Spend $150 at Tempe Marketplace or Desert Ridge on one day in July (see dates below) and get one free unlimited game play card at Dave & Buster’s ($35 value).

Details are here for Tempe (through July 31st or while supplies last) and here for Desert Ridge (through July 31st or while supplies last).

Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy at US Airways Center April 8-12. – See more at: http://www.tempemarketplace.com/disney/#sthash.bYsZzsw0.dpuf

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 $150 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:
Dave and Buster’s unlimited video game play cards exclude ticketed games and are not valid on Wednesdays. Visit Dave and Buster’s to activate your card. Once card is activated, it will expire at the close of business the same day. Cards must be used by August 31, 2015. Applies to purchases made on the same day, July 1-31, 2015. Limit 1 free game play card per person for the duration of the promotion. Offer valid while supplies last. Must be 18 or older. Other restrictions may apply.

**  Note:  Call their 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 Win ~ Deals at Taco Bell, Papa John’s, Circle K and Jack in the Box

The Dbacks beat the Dodgers at home 10-6 and scored a home run.  Get all these deals today, Tuesday.

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.  (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)
AZ350810 (Buckeye, Surprise, Avondale, Estrella Mountain stores only, thru 7/31; Thanks, Rachel!)

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

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.

circle_k_001

Circle K has a Strike Out Meter for the Dbacks. During regular season home games, check their page here for the strike out total of the game. The more strike outs, the better the deal!

You need to download their app to your phone to get this deal. Go here and in the lower right corner, you’ll see the icons to download the Circle K Arizona 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 any size fountain drink free.  No other purchase is needed.

Have a Birthday Coming Up? Check Out Our Huge List of Birthday Freebies

birthday_cake

Have you checked out our HUGE list of Arizona birthday freebies?  All places have at least one location in Arizona, but many are national deals.  The list is amazing with over 100 places and restaurants.  There is a tab on the top of this web page that lists all these deals, so you can reference it later if you need to.

There is everything from free mascara to free zoo admission!  I know, I know, I had you at mascara.  :)

Most deals require you to sign up for an email club and a coupon will be emailed, around the time of your birthday.  Many are good for a week or two around your birthday.  Sign up before your birthday so they start to roll in when your birthday comes and you can enjoy a couple weeks of great deals!  You might want to use an alternate email so that you don’t begin getting too many extra emails.  (You can create free ones with gmail or hotmail.)

BOGO Movie Ticket Offer ~ Chase Signature Visa Members

fandango

If you have a Visa Signature credit card (says “Signature” somewhere on card) and are heading to the movies on a Friday, before August 21, this deal is for you.

You can take advantage of a Buy 1, Get 1 Fandango movie ticket offer!

I’m pretty sure all Harkins & AMC’s in AZ accept them, but you’ll be able to verify at the end of the process since you need to choose a theater and time.

Since you have a Chase Visa Signature card you are able to buy tickets for a Friday showing on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday.  This offer is limited so you may want to buy tickets earlier, if you know you’re heading to a Friday movie.

You will need to enter your credit card number here to verify that it’s eligible.  When you enter your zip code, it will show you a list of theaters.  Next, click on the “Friday” tab.  If you don’t choose a Friday show, you won’t get BOGO tickets.  Choose your movie and time, along with two tickets.  When you checkout you will see the discount.

You have through August 21, 2015 to take advantage of this offer.  It’s limited to every 30 days, so that means only one time, until the deadline.

(Thanks, Randall & Solitude Canyon!)
