Vegan Cuts: discounts for the vegan folk! »
Vegan Cuts launched today with 40 percent off a vegan skin care kit from Moxie Organix! Vegan Cuts is kind of like Groupon but just for vegan stuff. And I know you vegans are some poor mofos! Every good vegan loves a deal, and every girl band deserves funding. Two Universal Truths.
From the company:
Vegan Cuts makes it easy and fun for their members to discover new vegan companies and shop vegan. Member receive weekly emails featuring exclusive deals from vegan companies. Most deals will be open to people living in the U.S., but some will also be extended to Canada or online shoppers.
Vegan Cuts is run by a vegan couple, John and Jill, who want to see more people shopping with vegan ethics. They feel a commitment to buying vegan food is a great start, but know people can also make a positive difference by choosing vegan options when purchasing clothing, shoes, accessories, body care products and everyday household items. This is why Vegan Cuts will feature a range of vegan products and encourage members to shop vegan by promoting opportunities to save money while eschewing animal cruelty.
Vegan Cuts has a referral campaign that encourages new members to sign up and share a referral link with their friends on Facebook and Twitter. The three people who refer the most new members by Apr. 24, 2011 will be eligible to win a gift certificate from Susan Nichole Handbags, a Texas Treat Tower from Nacho Mom’s Vegan Queso and a Coconut Bliss prize pack. For more on the Vegan Cuts referral campaign, read the Vegan Cuts blog post: Refer Friends & Win Awesome Prizes.
Sounds like a good opportunity to BUY BUY BUY while supporting vegan companies. I’m pretty excited! I hope they get SHOES. Maybe they will expand and be a barbershop/coupon website. Because that logo could totally work for a vegan barbershop. Am I right? Or maybe like a vegan plastic surgeon.
Hello, Millennium coupon! As if you didn’t give us enough reasons to want to be inside you ALL THE TIME (hush), now here’s a buy-a-cocktail, get-a-cocktail-and-an-appetizer FREE offer! Huckleberry potato fries with sweet and spicy smoked maple ketchup, be mine. I will devour you with a fiery grapefruit-basil margarita and never want anything ever again.

Thas right, it’s free food and it can be yours if you’re willing to embarrass yourself with an app that’s SO YESTERDAY.

Diddy Pon’s Weekly Deals: Kettle Chips and Garden of Eatin’! »
Now, from what I understand, not all Kettle Chips are vegan, so do your homework and don’t blame me because you accidentally ate some cheese or a whole steak. These are on sale at Whole Foods for 3 for $6 (normally about $3 a bag!), and if you go here and “take the pledge,” WHATEVER THAT MIGHT MEAN, you can get a $1 off coupon, making each bag after sale and coupon this week only $1.
Garden of Eatin’ is kind of an adorable company because it was started by some midwestern farmer who went vegetarian after seeing his family slaughter his pet chicken. Or something. I’m easily swayed. These chips are on sale at Whole Foods for 3 bags for $7 (regularly $3 each). Go here for a $1 off coupon, and get each bag for OH DO YOUR OWN MATH. IT’S CHEAP, TRUST ME.
Diddy Pon, out!
Cheaposaurus: Your Weekly Deals! Um, that you gotta use TODAY! »
Cheaposaurus would like to be referred to as Diddy Pon from now on. Now that that’s out of the way.
Diddy Pon back with some yummy vegan bargains! Hurroooo!! NEVER MAKE EYE CONTACT WITH ME. Also, use these deals today or um, never. I’ll be back with more deals & steals* very soon!
At Whole Foods this week (Always check as the stores’ sales vary by region. AKA, do your homework, hooker.):
Food Should Taste Good Tortilla Chips. Now, go to their the website and click on the purple circle at the bottom where you can get a $1 off printable coupon. Combined with the deal WF has going right now, that is $1 a bag! These are usually $3 to $4 a bag!
R.W. Knudsen Morning Juice Blend. Very fancy and very delicious juices. Go to the website and print off a $1 coupon, making each bottle only $1.50 (when combined with the deal that WF is running right now!). Again, that is over half off the regular price.
Yippee, deals!! And steals*!!
*That just involves you stealing and ain’t my business! Or, the vast majority of my business, as it were!
Diddy Pon is Cheaposaurus is Annapurna.
Taco Happy Hour oppression! »
Chances are if you live in San Francisco and are an unemployed bum (“freelancer”), you’ve heard of El Toro's and Pancho Villa's Taco Happy Hours. Between the hours of 3 and 5 p.m., both venerable taquerias offer $1 tacos and $2 beers. While in the past I've had no troubles getting tofu tacos for the $1 advertised price, yesterday when my friend and I hit up the Panch, we were told that the only vegetarian taco eligible for the deal was the plain rice/beans/salsa deal…BUT I could get a meat taco for the happy hour price!
What the shit? The basic meat taco is $3, while the rice/beans/salsa model is $1.50. That means that you get a $2 discount per taco if you eat meat, and a $0.50 discount per taco if you don’t. What’s more is the tofu tacos COST LESS THAN THE PLAIN MEAT TACOS! THEY ARE $2.25!!! WHY, PANCHO VILLA/EL TORO, WHY?
Now, I love me some El Toro and I love me some Pancho Villa (more El Toro, because they have pico de gallo in their salsa bar, and I am like a fiend for that stuff), but I am not so in love with this veg discrimination, so I say let us rise up, vegans, and fight for our $1 tofu tacos! Contact El Toro and Pancho Villa and (politely and pragmatically) let them know that we’re on to them. End veggie discrimination now!
Cheeposaurus: Your weekly deals! »
Cheeposaurus here! Some good deals that even this penny-pinching, miserly immigrant can get on board with. Remember; please check your local ads for deals because stores tend to vary their sales from region to region. In other words, don’t blame me because you’re a lazy jerk. NOW ON WITH THE SHOW!
2) Also at assface WF: Naked Juice is two for $5. Buy 10 bottles and submit your receipt for this manufacturer rebate. Also, sign up for their “Bare Believers” online newsletter and score a $1 off coupon to increase your savings. Look in the Whole Foods’ coupon book “The Whole Deal,” which should be near the entrance to the store; inside, there is a $1 off one box of Celestial Seasonings tea. Celestial Seasonings tea is currently three for $6, so use that coupon and get each box for a $1! Finally, WE FUCKING HATE WHOLE FOODS. Sorry, this blog is schitzo.
3) At Walgreens: buy $20 worth of Stacy’s Pita Chips and get a $10 Register Reward. Register Rewards are tapes that print out with your receipt and are used like store credit. They do expire, so use yours fast! If you live in the states listed on this rebate form, you can get additional savings (scroll through, as there are different rebate options depending on which amount you are purchasing).
Cheeposaurus is our new weekly column written by one Ms. Annapurna. She is the brown sugar in your coffee and probably the woman you had phone sex with last night.
