I was at the mall the other day and saw some pamphlets in one of those little in-mall billboards. After taking a closer look, I realized that the pamphlets contained a listing of all the stores in the mall that participated in a military discount (Score!). The usual discount is about 10% however, the Gap had a discount of 25% off your entire purchase with a military I.D! On top of the extra 25% off sale prices, I was able to get 4 t-shirts for my sons for 15 dollars after tax. Pretty good for the Gap! I also know that if you are a nurse, teacher, military, police, EMT or firefighter, you get a 15% discount at NY&Co.

Moral of this story:
Ask/Find out about discounts for AAA, military, your profession etc. at any place that you shop regularly.

Social Media Discounts

This may be another "duh!" moment but I'm going to post it anyway. If there is a business that you always find yourself frequenting (and buying their goods...), why not check to see if they have a Facebook page? Keep up to date with the latest sale information and perhaps even get some great deals through a coupon or promo code posted exclusively for Facebook fans. Sometimes you can get in on a flash giveaway too (I've won something from them...its so much fun!). Just "like" their page. Might as well save a little (or a lot) when buying your favorite stuff...

Great Deals at Food Lion

Being military, I don't shop at the commercial supermarkets as much since I have access to the Commissary. However, there are some great deals to be had at Food Lion if you do your shopping right! I always scan my MVP card at the coupon kiosk when I go in to the store, just to see what coupons it spits out for me. Today when I went, I got a coupon for a free item (no other purchases necessary!) Definitely worth taking the time to scan your card when you walk in. And if you don't need any of the coupons, leave them there for the next patron who may be able to use them. Good karma all around.

I've also found that you can find closeout items on their shelves. I've gotten tide pens, m&m's and baby food all super cheap. The best is when you can couple it with a coupon and sometimes you end up getting the items for free or "less than free" (the amount the coupon took off was more than the purchase of that particular item). I've done this with baby food and it definitely helps to keep some money in your pocket! Keep your eyes open the next time you go shopping at Food Lion.
