Great Deals on Niagara Falls Hotels, Dining and Attractations Packages

Wow! It's been almost an entire month since my last post! August was an an extremely busy month for me and I've done more traveling in 5 weeks than I normally do in a year.  

One trip included visiting Niagara Falls.  Summer is NOT the time to do that.  We stayed at the Comfort Inn on Clifton Hill and I came up with the best deal I could (not too great) at the time. I even checked the deal sites but no deals were to be had.  

Groupon is now offering deals at 7 hotels for your saving pleasure:

The hotels include Ramada, Hilton, Marriot, Micheal's Inn, Sheraton, Days Inn and Best Western. Some of these are in New York and some are in Canada (passport needed).

Each deal offers a different package that include winery tours, dining credits, casino credits and entertainment credits.

You can check Living Social for Niagara Falls deals too.

Staples Deal on Toilet Paper & the Toilet Paper Stock Up Rule

If you need toilet paper this week, here is a deal from Staples.

1. Sign up with or into Topcashback for 3% cashback. (optional)

2. Enter Staples in the search box and click the orange "Cashback" buttons.

3. Add 4 Angel Soft Big Roll Bath Tissue, 2-ply, 24 roll/pack (item #445260) to your cart.

4. At checkout you will see instant savings of $3.28. Below the total, click the link to "add/edit coupons".  Enter coupon code 15782 for an additional 20% off.  The total will be $25.57 and shipping is free so no driving around town with a...load of TP. After cash back your total is $24.80

If you make this purchase you may be breaking the toilet paper rule for stocking up which is:

If the price per sq ft is less than $0.01 you should stock up. In order to determine the price per sq ft you need the sq ft on the pack of TP. In the Staples example above I was able to tell from the picture that each pack is 528 sq ft X 4 packs=2112 sq ft.

Take 2112 sq ft and always move your decimal point 2 spaces left = 21.12. If the cost of the pack is less than $21.12 you should stock up! 

Here's another example on a smaller scale.  You are in the store and see the same pack of TP with 528 sq ft.  If the price after sales and coupons are subtracted is more than $5.28 don't stock up.

I learned this rule a few years back so it may be harder to come by such a good deal. Paying $24.80 is still a great price especially if you are needing TP soon. Plus it's delivered right to your door free!

I probably won't be doing this deal this time around as I just got 4 packs of TP free with Topcashback!

Deal expires 7/26.

Free Gas at Giant PA Without Buying Things You Don't Need

Purchase Visa Gift Cards issued by Metabank and earn 4x the gas rewards.  Use a credit card that gives you cash or points back to earn even more (like 3% with Amex Blue Cash Everyday).  Use the gift cards to pay for groceries (earning more gas points) or pay bills with sites like Evolve Money for free.

Here's how it works:

The cards say "Any Amount From $20-500".  The best deal is to load $500 to the card because there is a flat fee of $5.95 per card.  My store requires management approval for purchases over $500.  The fee puts it over $500 so I load a little less to avoid the hassle. 

To keep things simple lets say I earned points on $500 even.  That's 2000 pts or $2 off per gallon.  If you have a 25 gallon tank or a couple of gas cans that is worth $50 in free gas!  Buy 2 cards and you've got a free fill-up! 

I've also earned $15 from my credit card.  

You can then use these cards to pay for your groceries and earn additional gas points or use them to pay bills or other expenses.

Free Hershey Bar Friday, Saturday & Sunday

If you're heading to the store this weekend be sure to pick up a free 1.55 oz milk chocolate Hershey bar via SavingStar deposit.  

And don't forget to add all the new coupons to your loyalty cards.

How to Earn $50 Rapid Rewards and Flowers for Less Than $10

This is how I earn $50 in Southwest Rapid Rewards and flowers/gifts for less than $10 out of pocket.  It may seem like a lot of steps but shopping through portals and purchasing half-off vouchers literally takes seconds and the rewards are big.

1. Sign up for or into Ebates and type "Amazon Local" into the search box.

2. Click the Amazon Local link and search for "1800flowers".  Purchase 2 $30 vouchers for $15 each until July 9th.

3. If you have a Discover card, log in to Shop Discover and click the link for 1800Flowers. If you don't have access to Shop Discover you can use Mr. Rebates or Ebates though your cash back won't be as high.

4. Shopping through the 1800Flowers link at one of the shopping portals mentioned above, you will want to use one of the vouchers you purchased to join Passport (if you don't already have it).  This will give you free shipping for 1 year and right now it is on sale for $20.  Add a $10 gift to your cart to use the full $30 voucher.

5. At checkout enter the code RR22 and your Rapid Rewards account number to have 1000 points credited to your account. Your order must be $30 or more to earn the points.  This will work on the Passport order and my points were awarded even though the total was $29.99.

6. Use the second voucher before 9/30 and now that you have free shipping, purchase gifts anytime for as little as $4.50!

Here is how the cost breaks down:

Purchase $15 voucher for $30 of flowers or gifts.
Receive 6% back from Ebates -$0.90
Receive 15% back from Discover on $30 -4.50
$9.60 out of pocket plus:
Receive 1000 Rapid Rewards points. I value 1000 points at approximately $16-$18.
With your 1800Flower account you will earn a $20 Savings Pass for every $200 spent.  Even though you are using a voucher the $30 purchase counts and will earn you $3 toward this pass.
