Monday’s Money Deals: Rugs, Car Care, and Free Pretzels

You would expect a lot of sales gimmicks to revolve around 1/11/11 and offer some good deals this week, but you would be wrong. Apparently, all those deals are being saved until 11/11/11.

But you can get a free bag of Snyder’s pretzels at RaceTrac this week. They’re the small bags, up to 3.5 ounces, and unfortunately, the chocolate-covered variety is excluded.

And since RaceTrac only operates in southeastern states, here’s a freebie for everyone: a free photo book of Seoul from National Geographic. Sorry if pictures of Korean architecture don’t match up with salted dough, but we don’t make the deals – we just find them.

This week, we also saw deals on rugs, rechargeable batteries, printers, and auto care.

At Rug USA you can save 40 percent on area rugs through Jan. 11 with coupon code EMJ40. After that, you can still save 30 percent on many rugs with code WSJ30. They also have some lighting on clearance, at prices up to 50 percent off. Buy a nice rug now, and it’ll be suitably dirty in time for spring cleaning.

Figure out you need more batteries for all those Christmas gizmos? At Adorama.com you can get 4 rechargeable batteries for $6.99 or a charger and two batteries for $6.99.

Amazon.com has some HP printers on sale for up to 50 percent off. They also have HP brand printer ink on sale this week: Buy one, get the second 40 percent off.

If your car care needs aren’t too urgent, you can save 40 percent on orders over $40 at Advance Auto Parts by ordering online with coupon code LC123.

You can pick up some TomTom brand GPS accessories for almost nothing this week with coupon code Welcome123d. The coupon works only on accessories, but it’ll save you $10 on orders over $10 – so you can pick up a charger or case for practically free.

At Bath & Body Works you can snag a free 3-oz. item from the Signature Collection with any purchase. Their Yellow Sale is still running too, so many items are up to 75 percent off.

Michaels has another 40 percent off any item coupon this week for anyone stocking up on craft supplies.

And lastly, RadioShack has some wireless mice on sale for $13 each. You have a choice of a stylish black and white wireless mouse or a plain silver wireless mouse. You can ship these to your local store for free too.

That’s it for this week’s money deals. Let us know how you’re saving in the comments, and check back next time for more.
