My Panera Cards

Next time you are at Panera, be sure to ask for one of their new My Panera cards. 

The cashier scans the card each time you visit, and you are rewarded with coupons and freebies.  I just registered my new card online and received a coupon for a free pastry or sweet item.  The coupons are loaded on your card so you don’t have to worry about losing them.  The rewards are based on how often you visit, not how much you spend, so be sure to present it each time you visit.

Check out the My Panera website for more info.

Funny story – I went to Panera yesterday and paid with a gift card and credit card.  I asked the cashier to throw my gift card away since it had no value left, and SHE THREW MY CREDIT CARD IN THE TRASH CAN!  They had to take the trash bag to the back of the store and dig through it to find my credit card.  I’m going to disinfect my card right now.

Tip of the Day 12/20/10 – Gift wrapping station

I would have been much more efficient with my wrapping if I had a gift wrapping station set up.  Instead, I hurt my back trying to wrap in our guest bedroom. 

Here are some tips from Good Housekeeping on how to set up your own gift wrapping station.  Since I hate throwing scraps away, my favorite tip is saving them for scrapbooking.  I had never thought of that.  Now I just need to find time for scrapbooking!

T’s Friday Five – My favorite birthday freebies

My birthday was Wednesday, and I’ve been loving all of the awesome birthday coupons that have been appearing in my inbox.  There is absolutely no way that I could ever use all of them, so I’m giving you my top 5. 

Go HERE for a link to the huge list of birthday freebies available.  Sign up now.  It’s so exciting to watch them roll in!

1.  Free entree up to $15 at Houlihan’s.  Of course, this won’t be completely free unless you go out to eat by yourself, but it makes for a cheap dinner.

2.  Free 8″ sub at Mr. Goodcents.  Free lunch for me!!!

3.  $15 gift card from Newport News. Check out the clearance section to find some potentially free tops and accessories.  Last year I ordered a seersucker blazer and some accessories for only a few dollars.  I’m still debating over what to buy this year.

4.  $10 gift card to The Galleria.  This one was unexpected and a day late, but so awesome. Do you know how far I can stretch a $10 gift card with some savvy clearance rack shopping and store coupons?  Pretty far.  That’s how far.  Be sure to check out the websites of your local malls to see if they have e-mail lists.  You might just receive a surprise on your birthday, too!

5.  $5 coupon from DSW.  To make this even better, I’ve been saving my $10 savings certificate and combining both with a $10 off coupon.  Match that with a super cute pair of clearance shoes and that’s another great freebie!


Quiznos Coupons

Quiznos has two new coupon available HERE.
  • 2 meals for $9.99
  • $1 off a regular sub OR $2 off a large sub
Both coupons expire 12/27/10.  Mmmm.  Toasty.

Tip of the Day 12/16/10 – Freezing Cookie Dough

I love cookie dough…almost more than the cookies themselves.  I’ve never tried to freeze cookie dough because I usually don’t have enough to freeze.
