Groupon has a great deal today for iTunes. You can get a $15 iTunes code for only $10. The sale is listed as four days, but I'm sure supplies will run out long before that.

See Begin Again For Free This Weekend


If you're looking for something to do this weekend, I recommend checking out Begin Again at AMC. The coupon for four free tickets to see Begin Again is valid from August 29, 2014 through September 1, 2014. The following tweet was published by @AMCindependent:
Get 4 FREE tix to #BeginAgain from 8/29 - 9/1 with this coupon! RT the news & find showtimes! http://m.amcurl.com/05nbw

I have sent a tweet to AMC to confirm that AMCindependent is a legit source of coupons, but AMC's main page does follow them. If I learn otherwise, I will update this post.

PetHub Tags as Low as $3.25 (After Shipping)


Today is National Dog Day and PetHub is offering a great discount on QR code dog tags. The basic tag is on sale for $1 with the promotional code NATDOGDAY. With shipping, the cost is $3.25. The basic tag offers a QR code, website address, and toll free phone number. You can also use the promotional code to upgrade to any other tag or collar. NATDOGDAY will take $13.95 off any purchase on PetHub. This promotional code is only valid on August 26, 2014.

You are able to create a free profile for your pet and the web address on the tag leads directly to your page. You can include as much, or as little, information as you choose. Benny's profile includes my name and number along with his vet's information. The website also includes a link for people to send an email with GPS coordinates of where the tag was scanned. This helps you find your missing pet faster. For people that don't have a smart phone or don't understand QR codes, the phone number directs them to an 24/7 operator that has access to all your information.

Benny has an upgraded tag with was personalized with his name and my phone number. I prefer this because if Benny does get out and the person that finds him doesn't understand QR codes, they will still have my number. The QR code gives the added benefit of the profile and GPS location if the person knows how to scan it.

Today only (August 22, 2014), use the promo code DELETED to get a free movie at any Redbox machine. This code is good once per account.

Update: Sorry everyone. It seems that this promotional code was accidentally released online. It was only meant for a select customers through a text message. Redbox has removed the code from their system and it will no longer work.

Weekly Back to School Deals - August 10

Staples

  • Sharpie Accent highlighters, 5/pack - Free (after rebate)
  • Crayola crayons, 24/pack - $0.50
Thanks to the price matching policy at Staples, you can get a great deal on Texas Instrument calculators. Bring a different store's flier to Staples to get a lower price in the store on TI-30xiis and TI-84plus calculators. You can then still submit for Staples' rebate which will bring the price down even lower. It's the best price I've seen for the TI-84plus if you have a high school or college student that you are shopping for this season.

Staples is offering a 110% price match guarantee:
*If you find a lower price on a new, identical item, just show us the lower price when you buy the item at Staples, we will match the price plus will discount it by 10% of the difference.

Staples Price Match Policy covers items: sold and shipped directly by Amazon.com; and sold by any retailer who sells products in both retail stores and online under the same brand.

For anyone planning to shop at Staples, I recommend buying a gift card first. Staples will be donating 5% of each gift card purchase to Donor's Choose. You won't pay anything more, but 5% of what you spend will help out students across the nation.

Free Movie Rental from Redbox Today Only


Does Redbox need a reason to release a one day only free rental code? Nope. Today on Facebook, Redbox posted an image with the promo code SUNSHINE to get a free movie, which is valid today only (August 4, 2014). The code is valid once per credit card.

They're captioning the image as "Free Movie Monday" so hopefully this promotion will be continuing for a few weeks, similar to when Redbox machines were first popping up everywhere.

TI30-xiis Calculator for Under $5 at Staples

Staples

Do you have a student that needs a good calculator but doesn't need a graphing calculator? My favorite model is the TI-30xiis. I recommend this calculator to all my middle school students because it's simple enough for basic use but offers the advanced features that students will begin using in pre-algebra classes. The TI-30xiis is also good for the future transition to a TI-84 graphing calculator because the key entry is similiar.

While this calculator is normally priced approximetly $14, back to school sales always see the model's price take a dive in August. Thanks to price matching and mail-in rebates, you can get the TI-30xiis for under $5 at Staples.

Staples has the TI-30xiis on sale for $10.99 after a rebate. The Target flier shows the TI-30xiis for $9. Staples has their 110% price match gaurantee so if you bring the Target ad to Staples, you will be able to purchase the calculator for $8.40. It's gets even better because you will still get the Staples mail-in rebate for $4. After the price matching and rebate, the calculator will cost you $4.40.
