Get Ready For New Year's Eve With Champagne Deals

Today's Deal of the Day from is a 10% discount on champagne, sparkling wine and sparkling gifts. Now is the perfect time to take advantage of this offer and get yourself ready for New Year's Eve with a quality bottle of bubbly. These offer are only valid today, Decemeber 16, until 11:59pm ET.

There is a superstition that however you spend New Year's Eve will set the tone for your upcoming year. Putting an effort towards making your New Year celebration go a certain way and starting your year off with that resolution isn't a bad idea - whether you're superstitious or not! I personally go "all out" every year on New Year's Eve, expecting success and a more prosperous year ahead. This positive attitude has not failed me yet!

Today you can get a bottle of Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve for $35.99 (regularly $39.99 - save $4), Piper Heidsieck Brut Cuvee for $31.49 (regularly $34.99 - save $3.50), Veuve Clicquot Gold Label Vintage Brut 2002 for $69.99 (regularly $79.99 - you save $10). Bottles of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label are not discounted at this time and sell for their usual, low price of $39.99. Compare these prices for French champagne with those of ordinary plonk at your local restaurant and you'll see a bargain!

Not only can you get these savings, but combine these prices with an online coupon code to save $10 on your order of $125 or more at when you enter Promo Code: DECTEN at checkout (valid through December 31, 2008) and you'll really get a steal.

Check out the shopping cart below. Included are 3 respectable bottles of French Champagne (Piper Heidsieck, Veuve Clicquot and Laurent), along with 2 bottles of decent Spanish sparkling wine (Cristalino) and one good Australian sparkling wine (Wolf Blass). Thats 6 bottles of quality champagne and sparkline wine. The coupon code DECTEN saved me $10 on top of the 10% savings for today only on sparkling wines. Shipping is $14.95. I ended up with NO sales tax (my delivery address is in Illinois) and the order will arrive by December 20. As an additional note, I'd serve the French stuff first, and when everyone gets a little tipsy I'll drop the bar and serve a Spanish or Australian Sparkling (yet still quality) wine. No one knows the better and the prime stuff is enjoyed to the fullest!

Linens And Things Going Out Of Business

Linens N' Things
We must admit that we haven't paid as much attention to Linen's N Things as we would've liked to lately. Thus, it was with much surprise to get an email regarding their liquidation proceedings today! A quick Google search confirms that in April of this year, Linens & Things was contemplating a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy and in touch with restructuring firms. Apparently things began on May 2, 2008 with store closures and people losing jobs. A new buyer for the chain has not been found, and only 10 hours ago (according to, LNT announced the closure of its Canadian division. Clicking through to their website, there is no secret.

Linens N Things is going out of business.

With any bad news come good news usually. The good news in this situation is that you can get BIG savings from Linens N Things during this liquidation. Many quality names are carried at Linens And Things: Wamsutta, KitchenAid, CuisinArt, Calphalon, Paula Deen Signature, etc..

Hurry up though, these prices wont be around for long obviously!

A Free Dozen Organic Roses

Send Eco-elegant flowers

OK, you do have to buy something to get the free roses, but this is a real deal in our eyes. We received an email this afternoon from Organic Bouquet about "Free Roses For Sweetest Day". The title of that email was interesting enough for us to open it. Upon opening the email, here's what we found. It's basically a Buy One, Get One Free deal where they've thrown in a free glass vase as well - not too shabby. As always, we've tried the offer out. What did we find? You can't get this deal by going directly to You have to receive an email from Organic Bouquet and click on the link in the email. Your item will be described as "one dozen assorted roses with a free dozen & glass vase" and the price will be $49.95. You can always get an additional dozen for $20 more from Organic Bouquet (first dozen is $49.95). Your final price should be $49.95 with this offer, which (again) will only happen if you click on a link from an exclusive email from Organic Bouquet. Our suggestion to get in on this offer if you haven't got the email yet - go to Organic Bouquet and sign up to receive emails! One final caveat to the offer: Sweetest Day is Saturday, October 16 and Saturday delivery costs an extra $10. It's still a great deal though!

Sweetest Day is October 18. When you purchase one dozen roses from Organic Bouquet, they'll throw in another dozen roses for free, along with a glass vase. This offer is good through Friday, October 17. Also note that this offer is good on assorted roses only. To ensure that you get your roses delivered on time though, you'll want to order them as soon as possible.

If you don't realize the importance of organic and certified flowers, you may want to read a piece we put together on why you should Order Organic Flowers. Flower farms have a big impact on our environment, we put them close to us (so you don't want lots of pesticides on them), and the majority are farmed outside of the US where chemical regulations are perhaps not as stringent and would allow for some pretty scary stuff being sprayed on them! Finally, flower farm workers are not treated very well at many flower farms. Read up on organic flowers, it will definitely make you look at flowers differently!

Back to the deal... Normally, your two dozen organic roses would run you $85 with a glass vase. Through this Friday, get the 2 dozen assorted roses with a glass vase for just $49.95. That's nearly a half price discount. I think that's enough of a bargain to justify flowers even if it wasn't sweetest day (and we're not really sure when Sweetest Day originated anyways!).

Grocery Coupons are a hot item

Grocery Coupons Are A Popular Topic

Signing in to my Yahoo account this morning, I noticed that "grocery coupons" is one of the top searched topics online today. That is hardly surprising, considering the price that even the most basic staples have risen to lately. If you're searching online for grocery coupons, you don't want to miss out on the list of grocer's websites in both the United States and Canada that has compiled (and continues to add to). In fact, if you DON'T see your local grocer on your list, be sure to make a comment to this blog and we'll get it up there if it exists!

Where To Find Grocery Coupons Online

There are alot of sites out there for printable grocery coupons. Some sites focus on grocery coupons & savings and will charge a subscription price for you to use them. Other sites require you to register. Most sites will allow you to print your grocery coupons at home for free. You can even find forums where members trade coupons and point you to hot offers online. A quick search on google or yahoo will provide you with a long list of places to check. You can try the search terms "grocery coupons", "printable grocery coupons", "manufacturer coupon", "store coupon", "double coupons", "triple coupons", "grocery coupons online", "coupon forum", "coupon blog" etc..

Be aware that the term "coupon" is notorious with spam sites and you may have to wade through a lot of junk to get what you need. You could alternatively go straight to the source and visit a product manufacturer's website or your local grocer's website to check for coupons that you know you will use. Signing up to be on the mailing list of your favorite products is a good idea. You will often get emailed special offers for printable coupons, free samples and more.

Why You Need To Register To Print Coupons At Home

Even when getting your coupons directly from a manufacturer or your local grocery, you will most likely need to register and perhaps install software to be able to print coupons at home. You know the fine print on your coupons where you find the expiration date? They do take the limit of coupons allowed per person seriously and enforce that by limiting the number of coupons you are allowed to print. Often, the manufacturer or grocer will rely on a 3rd party to come up with and maintain the program where you can print a specified number of coupons. Some grocer's allow you to 'load' your coupons electronically on to your club card. This negates the need to even print coupons at all and also ensures you won't forget your coupons at home or forget to use them while checking out.

How To Use Grocery Coupons For Maximum Savings

You can usually 'stack' manufacturer's coupons with grocery store coupons, just read the fine print. For example, say you have a coupon from Jewel-Osco for $1 off BirdsEye Vegetables and a manufacturer coupon from Bird's Eye Vegetables themselves for $1 off. You can probably use both coupons together for a total savings of $2. Better that deal if your store features a double-coupons or even a triple-coupons day. Many online grocery delivery services accept manufacturer's coupons as well. You can find numerous blogs online where people share their grocery shopping secrets and how they use coupons to sometimes even make money. Have a look around!

Save on Halloween Costumes From Disney

Costume scenario A vs. scenario B means a difference of $20!

DisneyShopping has released some new coupon codes today, COSTUME and TREATS. When you apply promo code COSTUME during checkout, you get a 50% discount on Halloween costume accessories when also purchsing a full-priced costume from DisneyShopping's Halloween Bootique. Promo code TREATS gives you free shipping on your qualifying Bootique costume and accessory purchases. Reading the terms and conditions of these offers, it says that promo code COSTUME cannot be combined with other offers though. But these two codes are being advertised in tandem! Are they really stackable? We'll find out for you.

Scenario A: We decided to try these offers out on a Cinderella costume. There will be plenty of accessories to use the COSTUME code on. First, we found a Cinderella Costume at full price for $39.50. Then we added a Cinderella Light-Up Wand with Sound for $12.50, a Cinderella Clutch with Bangle for $12.50, a Cinderella Princess Crown for $12.50 and Cinderella Lace Shoes for $16.50. Our order's subtotal came to $77.

When we tried to apply promo code COSTUME, it showed as ineligible. It was a full price Disney costume - what was the problem? Initially we entered promo code TREAT for the free shipping promotion and that came up as an INVALID code. We actually forgot to add the 'S' onto the end of the code. When we entered promo code TREATS it took and we were granted free shipping. Shipping on our order of $77 would've been $13.50 (orders totalling between $75.01 and $100 are charged $13.50 for shipping & handling). Thus, our order price with the merchandise total and shipping cost (exclusive of tax) would come to $90.50. The free shipping promo saves us that $13.50 shipping charge, bringing the order total down to $77 again, representing a savings of about 17.5%.

Scenario B: We at Centsible are determined to get a deal though. This time we click on a Cinderella Costume right in one of the "picture frames" in the Halloween Bootique. We didn't take their suggested accessories, keeping the ones we had previously selected in our cart. Any difference? The costume was the same price but a slightly different style. Did the coupon code COSTUME work? No.

We messed around with things again. We removed our original Cinderella accessories from the shopping cart and took the ones automatically recommended for our costume at the Halloween Bootique. These were the Cinderella Tiara for Girls for $10.50, the Magical Light-Up Cinderella Wand for $10.50 and the Magical Twinkle Light Cinderella Shoes for Girls for $14.50. When we proceeded to the check out, our coupon code COSTUME was still in the cart and it was now working! The costume accessories were all showing prices of 50% off and our subtotal was now $57.25 (a merchandise discount of $17.75 from COSTUME). Shipping on this reduced merchandise total would now be $12.50 (the cost for merchandise totalling between $50.01 and $75), but coupon code TREATS was still working and our shipping was FREE (a shipping discount of $12.50 from TREATS)! Total price with shipping (exclusive of sales tax) - $57.25. The price before discount with shipping charges for that higher price would've been $70.75. These two codes ARE stackable!

Was it just the accessories that made coupon code COSTUME ineligible? We replaced the new dress again with our original one. Again, the coupon code didn't work and we paid full price on the accessories. Verdict - you have to choose both costume and accessories from the costume displayed in the picture frames on the opening page of the Bootique. Scenario A saved $13.50, the same as Scenario B. The percentage saved was 19% in scenario B though, whereas in A you only save 15%

Save 50% on ALL costume accessories with the purchase of a costume and FREE SHIPPING at now through September 21, 2008. Use Promo Codes COSTUME and TREATS.
