The Aldi I shop at on 53rd & Keystone shut down April 15 for an extensive remodel. They wanted to add another 20 feet to the side of the store to fit more freezer facilities. Part of the remodel includes a temporary shutdown. They’ve been open for a while, and while it smelled like wet cardboard, at least I could still get my groceries. I went there one last time before they shut everything down, and the place was ransacked. The freezers were blocked off, and everything that wasn’t frozen food was ransacked! At least I still got my apple juice. The renovation will be complete May 25, which seems like a long way away. I may shift over to the new Broad Ripple Fresh Thyme (with a bit of Wal-Mart to bat cleanup) in the interim, but at least the Aldi staff was nice enough to hand out coupons- $10 off a $40 purchase during the closure, valid at four other Aldi stores: 96th & Hague, 84th & Michigan, 46th & Lafayette, and Washington & Arlington. All those stores are a bit out of the way for me, but it’s nice to know they care enough to help customers with the inconvenience! I eagerly await Memorial Day Weekend when the new store is fully renovated.


An act of charity at Aeropostale May 20, 2013

I went to the Castleton Square Aeropostale on May 19, the fourth and final day of their 25% off sale. After I bought a t-shirt and two pairs of shorts, I realized I had three extra “25% off” coupons. I decided to go and pass them around to random people in the store. I figured, “Why not? It’s the last day of the sale and SOMEone could use them!” What surprised me was that all these random people in the store, for whatever reason, did not have coupons despite the sale being blatantly publicly announced weeks ago and during the sale. But oh well. Spread the wealth!!!

Old Navy run, 10/25/2011 October 26, 2011

OK, so today I feel like bragging about another ‘couponing’ run at Old Navy. I haven’t been to Old Navy since October 8, so it’s been about 2 weeks since my last run there, mainly since my wardrobe is pretty much complete. (Well, at least my CASUAL wardrobe is.) It’s also been 2 weeks since I last hit up Greenwood Park Mall, since I hadn’t been there since my Old Navy run. I got off work early today and decided to head down to the mall and have a nice little run down there. I got 3 cookies at Blondie’s for $6 and a milkshake at Maggie Moo’s for $4. But I got a SWEET deal at Old Navy! I found a pair of pants, originally $40, on the clearance rack for $13. Their sale this week was to take 30 percent off clearance items. I also happened to get an extra 10 percent off by filling out a survey about my previous visit. And guess what? I got ANOTHER 10 percent off because on Tuesdays, customers get 10 percent off when they use their Old Navy card! I also got a fleece marked down from $20 to $12.47. It wasn’t on clearance, but I got the survey discount and card discount. So I spent less than $20 altogether. Oh, and it gets better. Old Navy has this thing where for every $20 you spend in stores, you get a $10 off coupon to use in a few weeks. Considering the bill was $19.29 after all discounts were said and done, and I didn’t spend the $20 necessary to get the coupon, the cashier gave it to me anyway! I swear, between this, the people at UNiversiTees giving me free pens & bowling coupons, and the people at Blondie’s giving me free cookies on occasion, Greenwood Park Mall is just the best mall ever with the nicest employees ever! (In fact, I even walked into the mall office once to fill out a comment card full of compliments and got a nice ‘thank you’ letter in the mail 5 days later!) But yeah…$19.29 on a purchase that could’ve been $60 full price. What a ways to go! I’ll let the receipt do the rest of the talking.
