Bookmans Twitter Treasure Hunt!


Hey Arizona! Are you playing along in Bookmans’ Twitter Treasure Hunt?


No? You totally should!


Bookmans started their twitter treasure hunt in Tucson back in January.  They have since added Phoenix and Flagstaff into the mix!


My mom and I have won 3 different months between the two of us.  Our treasure has included movie passes, Bookmans’ coupons for BOB gear, and gift certificates to local businesses!


Tucson’s Twitter Treasure Hunt starts the last Tuesday of each month and is hidden at a local business until Friday.  That means that the Tucson treasure hunt starts today!!!


Just follow them on Twitter to get the clues: Bookmans, and BookmansTucson. Also if you are in Flagstaff or Phoenix you can follow  BookmansFlag, and BookmansPhoenix to play along with their twitter treasure hunts.


You can also catch more details about Tucson’s May treasure hunt HERE.


Don’t forget to say “I Love Bookmans!”


Go Arizona!

By the way Bookmans is hosting this treasure hunt in conjunction with other Local First Arizona businesses.  Local First Arizona has a Shift Arizona campaign right now encouraging everyone to to support local business and help improve Arizona’s economy. They even have a neat directory to find local businesses in your neighborhood!  It’s a great resource!

Fry’s Fuel: Save up to $1 per gallon!!!

May2011 049

In case you missed the announcement on Fry’s Facebook page yesterday or the ad in today’s newspaper….


Starting May 25th, Fry’s will allow you to save up to $1 per gallon on fuel at Fry’s Fuel Centers when you redeem 1000 fuel points.   Every 100 points earns you a $0.10 discount and you can basically stack your $0.10 discounts up to $1!  This is only valid at Fry’s Fuel Centers though. (Bummer for me since we have no Fry’s Fuel Centers nearby).


And don’t forget starting tomorrow (5/23) you can also start redeeming your fuel rewards for $0.10 discounts at Circle K stations (in addition to Shell stations).  That is over 500 locations where you can save on gas with Fry’s Fuel Rewards!


How do you earn fuel points?  $1= 1 point!  The best part is that it works on your subtotal BEFORE coupons!!  Woo Hoo!  Also you earn 50 points for every qualifying prescription that you fill and double points on qualifying gift card purchases.  You can see more details about the Fry’s Fuel Rewards HERE.


And for those travelling to California (and possibly other Kroger markets), I was able to get my $0.10 discount at Shell stations there as well.  They advertised the $0.10 discount for Ralph’s customers (a Kroger affiliate) and it accepted my Fry’s VIP information for the fuel discount!!  Woo Hoo!!
