Free Chicken strips at Houston Chick Fil A locations

Chick Fil A is giving away FREE chicken strips for the next three days! If you visit a Houston area Chick Fil A location between 5 and 8 p.m. on 8/12-8/14, you can get three free chicken strips. They also apparently have a new dipping sauce that you can try. We haven’t actually done this yet, but from what I have read on other sites, you don’t have to bring anything special with you, but you do have to ask for it.

I really like Chick Fil A because they are very family oriented (they have family nights several times a month where they offer face painting and other fun things for the kids as well as a craft activity and Bible stories during lunch a few times a month and they are closed on Sundays, which is a rarity anymore). The kids also love the food, and they at least have some adult-oriented options.

(and if you think that “free food” is too good to believe, I found the details here:

I just thought I’d post links to recap some of the “hot deals” that are happening this week:

**You might want to check to make sure your store will accept printable coupons first**

Free Blu Ray rentals (one at a time) for the month fo August and $2.99 regular DVD rentals. This definitely is working in the Houston area, but it may be in select markets, so you may want to call your store first.

Deals for the Texas/Louisiana area through Tuesday (8/12):

I haven’t seen any ad scans yet. I’ll post any deals tomorrow after I see the actual ad.

At Walgreens, there are deals on Crest toothpaste, All detergent, Band Aids, Campbell’s soup, Lysol toilet bowl cleaner, and Bic pens. You can find more information on this post:

Buy the All You magazine for $1.77 and get lots of free stuff (Nabisco crackers, Kraft cheese, Kraft dressing, Crystal light, Oscar Mayer hot dogs, etc.):

Walgreens deal on Kellogg’s snacks – ends today

There is a glitch that is causing double Register Rewards (RR) to be printed for the Kellogg’s snacks. This is confirmed to be working on the following products:

Items priced 4/$10:
*Special K bars
*Nutrigrain snack bars
*Pecan Sandies shortbread cookies

Items priced 5/$10:
*Pop Tarts
*Rice Krispie treats

The cheapest way to do this is to buy five of the 5/$10 items. (It’s even better if you have the Kellogg’s coupons from last Sunday’s paper).

You could also do this:
Buy six of the “snack” items listed above (use coupons from last Sunday’s paper if you have them).

In the same transaction, buy 4 of the following cereals:
12-20oz Raisin Bran, Smart Start, Fruit Loops, Corn Pops, Special K or Frosted Flakes
(there were also coupons for these in Sunday’s paper)

You would pay $22 if you didn’t have the coupons from the Sunday paper, and you should get 3 $5 RR (it will be 2 if they have fixed the glitch, but it has been reported by others that it is still working this morning). You can also send in for the $10 Kelloggs mail in rebate. So, after the RR and the mail in rebate, it would be like you made $3 buying these items (it will be even more if you have coupons).

Free or cheap DVD rentals at Hollywood Video

I’m not sure if this is region specific but in the Houston, TX area, Blu Ray rentals are FREE for the month of August. You can check out one at a time.

Regular DVD rentals are $2.99/each. They are advertising it as a “cheap” date night. Since my husband and I never go out anyway, it works for us!

If you are not in this area, you may want to call your store first to see if they are participating in this promotion.
