Cardinals Win ~ Deals at Dunkin Donuts, Papa John’s, Sonic and Jack in the Box on Monday

The Cardinals won today.  The following deals are all good tomorrow, Monday, 12/5.

Readers in Tucson have had problems redeeming the Dunkin Donut and Jack in the Box offers.  Please, call first.

Update: John said that today (12/5) it is working for him in Tucson!  Maybe they fixed it!  (Thanks, John!)

cardinals

Download the Dunkin Donut app to score a free medium hot or iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts the day after the Cardinals win.

All you have to do is open the app the day after the win and you’ll see your free offer under “Perks”.  I live in Prescott and the offer is there for me.  The closest Dunkin’ is about 100 miles away, so it should be good in all of Arizona, not just Phoenix.  I didn’t even create an account through the app, and the offer is still there.

I’ve heard that with deals like this location services need to be turned on as it’s only good in participating Arizona locations.  Ron let us know it wasn’t showing up for him in Tucson.  (Thanks, Ron!)

wendys

Until the end of the year, buy a Frosty Key Tag for $2 and receive a free Jr. Frosty with every purchase until December 31, 2017.

If you have three kids, they will all need their own keytag to get a free frosty.

They did tell me that if you buy 3 keychains, you need to purchase 3 items in order to redeem all three free frosties.
However, they also said that they try to deliver great customer service and your store may just let you buy one item and get 3 free frosties.
My kids all love their fries, so we are good!

Nanci left this comment for us after going in August:
The museum’s parking lot was completely full but they offered overflow parking directly across Central Ave in the parking structure. The structure serves the Uptown Phoenix’s Arts District building, 1636 N. Central Avenue, which houses the offices of the Arizona Opera Company. It was free to park there, the attendant just asked that we park on level 3 or 4 and exit to Palm (since the other exits were not open). There were even two gentleman, maybe officers, controlling the lights and stopping traffic so we could cross Central safely. I was worried there would be no parking but was pleasantly surprised to find the overflow lot.  (Thanks, Nanci!)

Free Tickets to Disney on Ice (Spend $250 at Tempe Marketplace or Desert Ridge) ~ 10% off Target Cards Count!

disney_tickets

I love deals like this, when you can spend the money on things you would anyway.

Spend $250 at Tempe Marketplace or Desert Ridge from now until December 21, get two vouchers to Disney On Ice!

Details are here for Tempe and here for Desert Ridge (through December 21 or while supplies last).

Here’s a plan for those of you’re near Tempe … Target will be having their gift cards 10% off next Sunday (12/4).  Shop wherever you want and then make up the difference by buying Target gift cards.  Then, go back and get what you want later.  The only glitch to this plan is that you’ll have to return, to turn in your receipts during the week.  The office is only open M-F.  Do it soon, before they run out!

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, movies, restaurants, etc.  ** You could also buy gift cards and make your “real” purchase later.  Just make sure you have $250 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:

Harkins Cup & Shirt Discount ~ Free Cup w/ T-Shirt Purchase! (Free Popcorn & $1.50 Drinks all Year)

harkins_2017

Head to Harkins on Friday (11/25) from 12pm – 6pm to get a free refill cup, with shirt purchase.  You will need this coupon They said you can show it on your phone, on their Facebook page.  (There will also be a coupon in your Thursday Arizona Republic newspaper.)

They will also offer the same deal on their website, on Monday.  (Someone asked on their Facebook page and they said they’d do it again.)  Shipping will also be free!

You’ll get a free souvenir cup (reg. $6) when you purchase a shirt for $25.  Now through the end of 2017, the shirt will get you a free medium popcorn (pay $1 to upgrade to a refillable large size or $1.50 for an XL.)  The cup can be refilled for $1.50 each time you visit.

Remember, you also get a free popcorn voucher every time you purchase a $25 Harkins gift card.  Sometimes, I  purchase the gift card and then use it right away to get our tickets.  Yes, I’m that cheesy and I don’t seem to shock the cashier, so I think there are other equally cheesy people out there.  They are used to the request.  :)
