Savings Chart Update Week 20: Scored Deals at Half Price Books Plus Used High Value Recyclebank Rewards Coupon = $50.90 in Savings
This week I am doing my best to finish my Christmas shopping. On Friday, I stopped into my local Half Price Books (which is a store I absolutely love by the way) to pick up some new books for my little book lover. Not surprisingly I spotted lots of great books for my son, so I snatched up five of my favorites. If you have never visited a Half Price Books, you should check it out. My local store has a wide variety of new and used books that you can pick up for at least half off their retail price. I always walk out of there with an armful of great reads.
Here are the books I purchased on this outing:
Elmo’s World Animals! $2.49 (Retail $4.99)
Curious George at the Park $3.49 (Retail $6.99)
Thomas & Friends Thomas 1 2 3 $4.99 (Retail $10.97)
My Animal A-Zs $12.99 (Retail $24.95)
Mega Sounds Noisy Animals $7.99 (Retail $29.95)
I increased my savings even more by using a $5 off a $25 or more purchase coupon I earned with Recyclebank rewards points, (learn more about Recyclebank if you are not familiar), which brought this week’s savings to $50.90 and my annual savings chart total to $3,264.68.
