Reminder: SUPER HOT $2 Deal

.Just wanted to give you guys a heads up that those HOT Baton Rouge deals are still available! I love this deal because you can buy it then print the Gift Certificate to use right away!

A couple of things:

1. It looks like the Arzi's on Coursey may be the only location accepting that voucher.
2. WOW Cafe & Wingery in Gonzales has closed down so DON'T buy that one. If you already did, contact to get a refund or exchange it for another voucher.

The Little Village at Downtown Baton Rouge$25 certificate for $10
Arzi's $10 certificate for $4, $25 for $10 or $50 for $20
Casa Maria $10 for $4, $25 for $10, $50 for $20, $75 for $30 or $100 for $40

*HOT* use the promo code CLEARANCE to get 80% off. That makes the $25 gift certificates only $2!!!

Notice that there is a minimum purchase at the restaurant. For instance - you must purchase at least $35 on the $25 Gift Certificates so look at it more as $25 off instead. $12 is still an amazing deal on a $25…

Sunday Coupon Preview

.This Sunday there will be a Smartsource, Redplum and P&G insert in the newspaper. Check
at Sunday Coupon Preview for a list of what coupons that you can expect. Please note that these may vary by region.

*The most asked questions that I get are about local newspaper inserts so here are a few answers:

How many papers should buy?

I personally buy 4-6 every Sunday depending on the amount/quality of coupons. This allows me to stock up on items that I find FREE or at rock bottom. If you can't afford to buy more than one newspaper, ask your friends/family/neighbors if you can have theirs.

Does The Advocate or Times Picayune have the best coupons?

There's no easy answer here. The Times Picayune generally has more coupons and it sometimes has the Redplum inserts that The Advocate does not contain (the RedPlum insert comes in the mail with the weekly store ads in the Baton Rouge area).

However, The Advocate does have the sought after P&G insert where as …
