SuperCoups - Go On, Open It!

If you get one of these in the mail this week, take a few minutes to check it out.  While there's a lot of coupons in here aren’t very useful to me, there are a few that I’ll definitely be taking advantage of. 


Free Entree at Aja Noodle

Check out your Shopping Bag Advertiser this week.  On the front there’s a coupon for "buy one entrée get one free" at Aja Noodle.  The meals run between $7-$10 a piece which will make a really cheap dinner for two.  This coupon is available for dine-in only and can’t be combined with any other offers. 



Brunch at Jay's Diner


Looking for a good place for breakfast/brunch?  Try Jay’s Diner at 2612 West Henriettta Road.  It’s open 24 hours a day just in case you need a snack around 2am. 


We went for brunch on Sunday -- we were looking for a place that serves breakfast all day.  Our waitress was extremely friendly and attentive (and she told me I smelled nice….must have been my new shampoo!)  The kitchen was a little slow but the place was pretty packed and the wait wasn’t anywhere near outrageous. 


I got a spinach and feta omelette and it was light and fluffy and had the spinach cooked right into the egg mixture.  I wish I knew how to make an omelette like that.  Also, it was huge and served with hash browns and toast.  Tasty!  My friend had the French toast with sausage and by the way he housed it, I have to say he enjoyed it immensely. 


Prices were reasonable.  It was only around $15 for two meals and two coffees.  If you’re a student, flashing your student ID will get you 10% off your bill.  They also have free wireless if you need to stay connected.

Blinkies - What Are They?


If you’re a newbie visiting money saving websites or forums, you may have heard the term Blinkie tossed around and wondered what on earth they were talking about.  Blinkies are a cute nickname for the coupons that come out of little machines mounted on the aisles in some stores.  They get that name because the machines often have a red blinking light designed to draw your attention to the coupons they offer.  Tops and Target are just two of the stores in our area that have these Blinkie machines.


While you may have always walked by these machines, I suggest you give them a second look on your next shopping trip.  Last time I was in Tops, I found seven blinkie coupons including:
