EDMUNDS
With Edmunds get quotes from other car dealers in the area without having to even drive to the dealership! They quote and deal with you online. It’s a great way to shop at dealerships that may be too far especially in this weather. You may even get a much better deal than a local dealership. Edmunds also helps automotive consumers by providing complete, clear, accurate and unbiased information needed to make informed purchase and ownership decisions.

Now is a great time to shop for cars when the dealerships try to meet sales quotas and get annual sales bonuses. I used Edmunds the last time I shopped for cars and it helped me get a much better deal!

HOLIDAY SHOPPING
Looks like retailers didn’t sell as much as they wanted over this past holiday season. More sales to come if stores need to get rid of stock. I think people were wary with the fiscal cliff around the corner. It seemed like the sales weren’t as good as in years past. Consumer confidence was down so that had an effect on sales. Keep an eye on sales during January!

BEST REWARDS PROGRAMS FOR 2012
So which stores had the best rewards programs this year? I’m passing out grades for the most popular rewards programs. Or if I were in elementary school I would be passing out shiny star stickers. Back ten years ago the rewards/rebate programs were much different. There were many more rebate programs with lots of great rebates. Back then you were able to get more razors, shampoo, and hair color for free. Here are my grades for this year.

Rite Aid UP Rewards/Single Check Rebate: B
Pros:
Lotsa great UP rewards deals.
I like that you can get more than one offer on most of the deals.
Enough deals to keep you coming back each week on a good variety of items.
Video Values coupons add to savings (can stack with manufacturer coupon).
Cons:
When they moved the UP rewards to load onto your card automatically they didn’t print on the receipt the amount of rewards you had on the card.
Rewards expire way too quick.
Not a ton of freebies each week.
Would like to see Video Value coupons loaded to card and not have to watch the video to get them.
Hardly any good freebie rebates this year – Single Check rebates going away next year might lower the grade.

CVS Extrabucks: B-
Pros:
If it wasn’t for the ton of Extrabucks freebies over the week of Black Friday, the grade would be much lower.
More 20% – 30% off deals.
Added bonus double bucks.
Lots of Extrabucks Kiosk coupons.
Cons:
Not as many Extrabucks freebies as in years past.
Not as many $4 off $20 purchase kind of coupons as in years past.
Rewards don’t expire as quick as UP rewards and Register rewards, but still too quick.

Officemax Maxperks: C
Pros:
Some great freebie Maxperks deals throughout the year, especially office supplies.
Allowed multiple limits on Maxperk deals.
Lots of freebie school Maxperks.
Cons:
Maxperks deals tailed off at the end of the year.
Not many tech freebies like in year’s past.

Staples Easy Rebates: C -
Pros:
School deals were great.
Easy to fill out the rebates online.
Cons:
Seemed to be less deals this year, especially over Black Friday

Walgreens Register Rewards/Balance Rewards: D
Pros:
Lots of Register Reward deals on Thanksgiving/Black Friday.
Cons:
Very few Register Rewards deals, especially for items of use (no, I don’t need any more brain food vitamins or sleep medication).
New Balance Rewards program stinks – confusing and you usually have to buy more than one item.
When doing the Register Reward and Balance rewards it would take off a coupon.
Can only use one manufacturer coupon per item (Register Reward is considered a manufacturer coupon).
Many savvy shoppers have stopped going there – shows in that they lost 26% in profits this last quarter.
Always run out of the freebie Register Rewards items early and even though they say the item will be stocked when the truck comes in later in the week it rarely happens.

Sears/K-Mart Shop Your Way Rewards: D

Pros:
It’s nice that they have some type of rewards program that earns credits for money spent there.
You get 5 double $1 coupons having the card. Whoopee!
I did get some surprise bonus $3 and $5 credits during the year.
Cons:
Not many deals. More of a loyalty card than anything.
The cost to now drive to the nearest K-Mart after many of their stores closed to get the $1 doubles is not worth the cost in gas.


MY TOP TEN PREDICTIONS FOR 2013
Hush child…I’m sensing things right now. I see… I see…my annual list of predictions. Gather yourself and enjoy.

10) South Dakota will split into 4 differents states named Dakota out Yonder, Slightly West Dakota, South Dakota Part 2, and New Jazzytown.

9) A herd of cats will stumble upon a Rosetta Stone on how to speak English and learn how to say what’s really on their mind instead of inferring it with bumps to your leg and constant meowing for what seems to be no reason at all. Purring will be replaced with them incessantly saying “I like you”.

8) A Bigfoot will finally get caught when he is filling out an employment application for Taco Bell.

7) After Rumpelstiltskin awakes from his 30 year slumber he will get arrested for failure to pay his utility bills.

6) The hot new diet food will be Crest toothpaste.

5) You will find #8 at least 29% more funnier if you read it backwards.

4) The big new fad will be to finally know all the neighbors on your street by name.

3) Fat Albert will change his “Hey!, Hey!, Hey!” catch phrase to “Greetings, Greetings, Greetings”.

2) Lindsay Lohan will get arrested for getting arrested too often.

1) The number 3 will be replaced with the letter B.

OPENING
M Cellars – now open right across from Red Eagle Distillery in Harpersfield on South River Road – great looking place – the owner took us around and let us taste the wines in the barrel – awesome new wines to be unveiled – I really liked the Meritage and Chardonnay – out of the current bottled wines we got the Reisilings – ice wine was like honeyed winter. The winemakers are a young couple.

Granite City Brewery – Legacy Village – opening in early 2013
Starbucks – they plan to open around 1,500 stores in the U.S. by 2017
Piada Italian Street Food – located in Cedar Center North in South Euclid (13947 Cedar Rd)
