Tired of getting mom flowers and a card?

Hello fellow frugal shoppers,

With Mother’s Day around the corner, I thought I would give you some ideas that aren’t the normal bouquet of flowers and a Hallmark card.  Now, I am not saying that those are bad things to get your mother, but personally I like to give things that last longer than five days.  Here’s a few ways at a couple different places you can do that this year:


WALGREENS: Get a free 8X10 photo enlargement using code ENLARGEIT.  This promotion is good until 5/10 and if you opt for in-store pick up you can eliminate any shipping fees.

ENTERTAINMENT BOOKS:  Remember those books they used to sell for school fundraisers?  Well, when I was a kid they were $10, now they are significantly more expensive (around $35 a piece).  They are having a spring sale online where you can get 2 for $25!   This is a great deal because if you give one to mom and keep one for yourself you can make your money back by using the coupons.  While this isn’t the traditional gift, it goes a lot further than flowers (which would pair well with this book).  If you decide to buy them, here is the link if you get the Puget Sound books: https://www.entertainment.com/coupon/checkout/basket.jsp?utm_medium=XBTB&utm_campaign=EXPMEM_050814_A&utm_source=Email&QTY=2&itemuuid=de2715060a6e142354f5b2e418db6aa2

**Bonus:  If you sign up for annual renewal, you can save an additional $5 on your order!

PETCO:  Is your mom an animal lover?  Would she love pet supplies, toys, or any other goods from the pet store?  Petco, today only, spend $49, get free shipping PLUS get a $10 e-gift card to be delivered by 5/21.  Use code treatme10.

SNAPFISH: Snapfish is currently doing 50% off photo books and collage gifts for Mother’s Day.  Prices start at $8.99 before discount.  Use code 50MAY.  They also have an 8X11 photo book with 40 pages for $29.99 and free shipping.

RITE AID: They are doing 11X14 canvas prints for $19.99 using code CANVAS1999.  For something a little different, you could try a photo puzzle (10X14) for $9.49 using code EPUZZLE.

SEARS:  Mom wanting something a little tech savvy this holiday?  Well, Sears is having a sale on their tablets and if you are a Shop Your Way Rewards member, you can get $20 back in points to spend the next time you are in!  The new Samsung Galaxy is $30 off for the 4″,8″, & 10″.  They also have jewelry on sale for mom’s.  You can get a lab created Ruby sterling silver and Gold mom heart pendant necklace, normally $149.99, for $44.99.  That’s over $100 in savings, and you can opt to pick up in the store to eliminate the $5.75 shipping costs.


These are just a few things to think about as Mother’s Day quickly approaches.  I hope you find something that works for you and yours:)  Let me know if you get any other great deals for this special occasion. 


Until next time,
