Welcome CW2 Daybreak Viewers!

Here's a recap of the deals we discussed this morning...
Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt has a printable coupon good for a free small frozen yogurt when you buy another one of greater value. This coupon is valid through 7/24. Head over here to print this coupon.

If you are a Starbucks coffee lover, then here is a great deal for you! Starbucks has brought their "treat receipts" back. Through September 2nd, when you make any purchase before 2 pm, you can bring your receipt from that purchase back after 2 pm the same day to score any grande cold beverage for only $2 at participating locations! I believe this will run through early September, so you've got plenty of time to get your caffeine fix!

Are you a college student or know someone who is? If so, then Amazon has got a great deal for you. Amazon is offering college students a completely free amazon prime membership (a $79 value). You will need to have a valid .edu email address and specify college and major when signing up. Perks of this membership include free 2 day shipping and no minimum purchase requirements. You can also upgrade to one-day shipping for only $3.99 per item! Head over here for more information and to get signed up.

Toys R Us has selected Crayola crayons, markers and paper on sale through Saturday buy one, get two free. This includes the large 8 count washable markers for $3.99 for 3 packs after the sale, which is equal to $1.33 per package - a great deal for the washable markers. The regular Crayola markers regularly go on sale for about $1 per pack, but the washable ones are usually $2+ per pack, so this is a great deal. This sale also includes the 96 sheet packs of Crayola construction paper priced at $2.49. When you buy one at $2.49 and get 2 other packs free, this makes the final cost per pack only $.83 each, less than $.01 per sheet!

Target and other major retailers are starting their summer clearances. They start marking down summer items to sell them to make room for back to school and other items. This is a great time to stock on summer items like picnic gear, outdoor dining furniture, toys for water play and other fun summer items.

You can also keep your eyes open for summer clothing clearances where you can stock up on clothing for next summer at rock bottom prices. This is how I am able to dress my kids for less than I would spend shopping at thrift stores and get brand new clothes for them. I call it "shopping ahead" and it means buying items at the end of a season for the next year. I stock up on clothes for my kids each time these clearances roll around in the next size up and then have wardrobes for my kids at a fraction of the regular retail prices. Check out this post for more information about "shopping ahead".

And here's a couple of deals we've discussed before that are still available...
Join the Chili’s email club and get a coupon good for a FREE order of their chips and queso. This coupon won't be available for long, so head over here quickly to print it out!

Canvas People is still offering a FREE 8 x 10” canvas print or $50 off any canvas purchase. Shipping and handling is $14.95 which is a ton cheaper than anywhere else I’ve seen. These are high quality canvas prints at a fraction of their regular cost. Head over here to order yours today!
