The Cheap Bastard Returneth and the Globetrotters Are Coming

November 24, 2012


Yes, we may be in the day of facebook and there are many who love to post vacation photos while they travel, but the Cheap Bastard is not one of those who likes to advertise his absence. Call him a Luddite if you want, but he feels it’s like issuing an invitation to burglars. Which is why postings have been a bit light of late. He spent the holiday in sunny Florida and manage to negotiate a deal where he brought back some of the sun with him. It was a cut-rate deal, though, so he’s not sure the sun will be here long. So, go out and take advantage of it. 

The trouble with being gone during Black Friday is that there are way too many deals to catch up on. That’s why he doesn’t do Black Friday deals. There are just too many of them  and so many other bloggers do them better. Like Thrifty NW Mom and Queen Bee Coupons. That doesn’t mean there aren’t still plenty of deals to list, though. Here are some of his favorites: 

See a Harlem Globetrotters game in mid-February at the ShoWare Center in Kent or the Comcast Arena in Everett starting at $23 per person ($46.25 value) with Groupon Live.

Peet’s Coffee BOGO: Buy one coffee at a local Peet’s Coffee and Tea and get a second one free. This deal is good through Sunday, Nov. 25th with coupon

Half Hour Scenic Flight for Two for $115 ($218 value) from Seattle Scenic Flights and Zozi. You’ll take off from Boeing Field and see such sights as Lake Union, the Ballard Locks and the Space Needle. 

Yes, the CB knows there are other deals and he’s doing his best to keep up, but he’s only been back a day and it’s going to take him a while to get caught up.


Savings to date: $19,159.22
