In this week’s bag of supermarket circulars:
We know a cute gay hiker type who swears by the men’s department at Sears. We’ll have to investigate soon, but mean time Sears is offering a decent special through June 30. Spend $50 on Levi’s (and a couple of other brands) and you get $50 in “Sears Rewards Cash” by mail. What’s that? A $50 certificate that you can redeem in for more men’s clothes. You can’t use it to buy Land’s End—phooey—but worst comes to worst you get fifty bucks worth of socks, underwear and pajamas.
Still at Sears, that lust-worthy white grill is now $479.99, instead of $499.99 last time we checked. Not nearly cheap enough, but still a looker. Home Depot‘s Kingsford Kettle grill (with a 250-square-inch grilling surface) is more in our budget at $39.97.
There are deals galore at our new favorite supermarket, at least based on the takes-no-prisoners coupon circular. Stop & Shop has two-liter bottles of Coke and Sprite for 10 for $10 (As opposed to $1.25 at Walgreens). If you like Bud light, buy three 12-packs and you get mail-in rebate that drops the price to $3.99 per 12-pack, or 33 cents a beer. That’s even cheaper than tap water! Cute-looking citronella torches are $1 and up. Spend $25 on Proctor & Gamble products and you get $5 off your next order. And so on.
