This week in deals: savings for frequent flyers, gadget lovers, office guys, and people with a big sweet tooth — and we mean really big.
Beware the Ides of March and murderous prices! We’re predicting that this week’s best deals are on electronics, office supplies, and groceries.
Freebie of the week: free one-year enrollment to British Midland International’s awards program that gets you free checked baggage on some airlines, including Continental, US Airways, and United. Policies vary by airline, but check it out — because it’s free.
There’s another week left on this Yankee Candle coupon for $10 off any purchase over $25.
Over at Adorama, you can get four Sony rechargeable batteries for $7.50 — a good deal if you don’t have enough batteries. And who does?
If you’re in the market for a laptop, consider Lenovo. Their Rainy Day Sale means 25 percent off all laptops and free shipping. But if you’re looking for big-screen electronics, Amazon has some HDTVs under $500, with some up to 40 percent off the regular price.
Also at Amazon: big discounts on all kinds of office stuff, including up to 50 percent off pencil sharpeners, label printers, HP printers, scanners, and staplers.
One more deal at Amazon, this one edible. A variety of grocery items are heavily discounted, and as usual, you can use the “Subscribe & Save” feature to save an extra 15 percent on many of them.
Those in need of car supplies can save $5 off a $5+ purchase with this AutoZone coupon. You have to be a rewards member, but it’s free to sign up. It expires Thursday, March 17.
Over at The Gap, save $25 off $50 with a text message code. Sign up your cell phone number to get the coupon, which is valid through Wednesday, March 16.
And to wrap it up with an unusual deal, have any interest in The world’s largest gummy bear? It comes in several flavors for $30, and contains almost a week’s worth of calories. You can get free shipping with coupon code FS25.
That’s all for this week! Share your best savings in the comments, and we’ll see you next time.
