Somehow I got my hands on the new flyer a bit earlier than intended (dated for delivery between Dec 21-24), so if you haven't gotten it yet, keep an eye out! The sales prices don't take affect til the 26th, but there is a coupon on the back for 40% off any one item that's good now through January 12th. The previous flyer I received has coupons for 40% and 50% off one regularly priced item that are good all the way through December 24. Coupon Commotion lasts through December 20th (that's TODAY), and those coupons are in the center of that flyer – including five 50% off coupons for any regular-priced item - so get in there tonight if you can! There are usually flyers inside the front door of the store, so always check the basket on your way in – mine’s been empty lately, but it doesn’t hurt to look.
