Update: Richardson Whole Foods Market Freebie Friday

Whole Foods Market Richardson (TX) Promotion

For readers who live or work near the Richardson (TX) Whole Foods Market….

The store will no longer be shutting off the promotion at 9AM! For the final two Fridays, you will be able to pick up the item of the day anytime after 8AM until supplies run out.

The promotion has been very well-received! Unfortunately I do not know how many products will be available, but if you haven’t been able to make it to the store between 8 AM and 9AM, you still may have a shot at getting the freebie later in the day.

I will announce the next item late Thursday night!

Thinking of composting? Free class and bin for Dallas residents

Free composting class and bin for Dallas residents

Did you know that some cities give out free composting bins to residents?

The last time I checked, I did not see anything mentioned about free composting bins on the City of Dallas Website, however I recently learned that they DO give free composting bins at the end of their free composting classes.

From what I understand, anyone can attend the composting classes, but the composting bins are only available to city residents.

Visit the City of Dallas Web site and scroll down to Free Composting Classes for the class schedule and calendar. If you don’t live in Dallas, check with your city’s Web site to see if they offer similar classes.

AMEX Small Business $25 Credit Extended through 12/31

Small Business Saturday from American Express

On November 9, I wrote about the $25 credit you could get on your American Express Card if you enrolled and participated in Small Business Saturday on November 27. If you didn’t see this or you didn’t participate, you still have time! American Express has extended the program through December 31.

This means you can shop at any local (not online) small business that accepts American Express between now and December 31 and receive a $25 credit on your American Express card.

Use this free money to buy teacher gifts, stocking stuffers, food for holiday parties, etc.

I stopped by T. Hee Greetings & Gifts in Dallas today and saw many items for under $25 that were adorable. They have two east Dallas locations. If you need monogrammed items, stationery, holiday cards, ornaments or other gifts, and live in the area, you might check them out. I am trying to decide if I want to buy items there or at a local coffee shop or at another small business retailer in my neighborhood.

Be sure to enroll your card and read the terms & conditions before you use your card.

See details on Facebook too (look for the extension announcement from Amex on November 28).
