The Lion King 3D deal (and a few more movie deals and coupons)

It was a few life times ago when I took my boys to Lion King.  Well my first two boys.  Ryan was just 3 when it was first released. 

Buy tickets for The Lion King 3D using your AMC Stubs Card and earn $5 AMC Stubs Bonus Bucks along with $5 savings when you pre-order The Lion King 4-Disc Blu-ray Combo pack!  Use your AMC Stubs number during checkout and have the service charge waived for AMC theaters available for ticketing on Fandango.com.

Remember, Every Friday, get 2 for 1 movie tickets when you use your Visa Signature card.

The Lion King was one of my favorite kids movies.  I still get teary eyed and goose-bumped when I watch it - the soundtrack is amazing as well!

On a side note:  One day we were driving home and the sun was going down.  It was that beautiful bright orange sun, sitting on the horizon, and Ryan says to me in his tiny little 3 year old voice, "Look Mom, it's the Lion King sun".  He was adorable.  He still is, but he's 20 now so the adorable is just not the same, but it does save him when he now says to me things like, "look mom, I told you the dent in the front bumper wasn't that big". 


Here are a few of the other movies the kids and I loved from a couple life times ago (when they were on vhs lol) to present which you may want to consider adding to your movie collection [ahm, just proofread the post and I originally typed video - haha - old habits - I still say album too - but I digress] or netflix queue:




Here are a few movie and movie watching deals and coupons for you!
$4.00/1 Biz Stain Fighter AND Rio on Blu-Ray or DVD SS 8/28/11 (exp 9/30/11)

What to Buy When Guide - September

One of the keys to snagging a good deal is timing. Also, working with manufacturer discounts, clearance sales, off-season discounts, and coupon and discount codes is important. Here are the September deals you can find:

Furniture
The best time to buy furniture is Feb-April and Aug-October. So do some planning and look around during these times, you'll find the deals.


Clothing
Off-Season, clearance, and try going on Thursdays. If you wait until the weekend you're likely to find other folks ransacking for the best deals and selections which means things have been picked through. And don’t forget to bring coupons!

Appliances
Best time is September and October as new models are coming out.


Car
First, shop online. You can find out the price of cars online and even locate what and where to buy what you want. Next, the next year's models come out in early fall and to make room the old inventory has to go. Shop in the early fall. Go at the end of the month - it's all about quotas. If the dealership has made their monthly quotas, they are likely to make a deal. The end of the year again is another great time as they are trying to get rid of all the old inventory.

Food and others:

Cereals, back to school snacks, hamburger, hot dogs, condiments, spaghetti sauce, cars, lawn mowers.
