Shrimp fans, hurry up and get to Red Lobster because their $15.99 Endless Shrimp special will come to an end this week. But the shrimp fun continues at Outback Steakhouse where the $14.99 deal that gets you a 6-ounce steak and all you can eat shrimp still runs for at least another week.
Speaking of Outback, the end is near — at least for this year — for the Bloomin’ Newman promotion. Throughout the NASCAR season, anytime driver Ryan Newman finished a race in the top 10, you could go to Outback on Monday and get a free Bloomin’ Onion with any purchase. The past three Mondays were among 13 so far this season that the freebie was offered.
So pay attention to today’s Sylvania 300 at Loudon, New Hampshire, and if Newman, driving the No. 39 car, scores a top 10 finish, you score the next day. He’s raced at this track 23 times in his career and has 15 top 10 finishes, so the odds are good that you’ll be visiting Outback Monday.
Join me in saying a hearty muy bien to Gloria J. Potence of Drums who answered the trivia question from the Sept. 8 column correctly and was randomly drawn to receive a bag of El Restaurante Tortilla Chips made by Snyder of Berlin. She, and more than two dozen other readers, correctly responded that Berlin is in Somerset County.
For a while I’ve been touting the benefits of movie/game rental units like Red Box and Blockbuster Express. And occasionally Redbox gives out codes that can be entered at the kiosk to get free or discounted movies. When I get them, I like to share them, so here’s one that will nab you a free DVD rental: Use the code MCPC213S at the kiosk today only. If used on Blu-ray and game rentals the code will deduct $1.20 off the rental price. And here’s a tip, if you have two credit cards, you can get two movies today. The code is good for a one-time use, per credit card. So perhaps today’s a good time for a free double-feature?
Here are some ways to use the coupons found in today’s Times Leader at area stores:
• Take the $1 off a Tyson Grilled and Ready coupon to Shur Save where the items are on sale for $3.99. You’ll pay just $2.99.
• Colgate mouthwash is on sale for $3 at Price Chopper and with the $1 off coupon you will pay just $2.
No coupons needed for the deal CVS has this week on some stomach relief. See page 15 of its circular for a list of products included in a deal that will get you $10 in Extra Bucks if you spend $20. With the holidays around the corner, it’s probably safe to stock up now on these products so they’re on hand if you need them at a family gathering.
Rite Aid, not to be outdone, has several Crest and Oral-B products listed on its circular’s front page that you will pay $3 for and get the full purchase price returned by way of +Up Rewards. The $3 coupon will be able to be used on a future store purchase.
