    Of note for the McDonalds deal, from the Bargainlist link:

    “Coupon must be printed from a color printer, and you only have one chance to print. Offer end 09/01/2008.”

    My local McDonalds areas were sticklers about the color issue last time, so heads up.

    Why does it seem like graphing calculators never come down in price?

  3. Underpants Gnome says:

    @ThatShortGuy: ProTip: if you have a flakey color printer like I do, first Print to PDF, then you can try as many times as you want to print the actual coupon.

  4. @ThatShortGuy: What if you tell them that you’re color blind, so you don’t have a color printer?

  5. ct_price says:

    McDonald’s deal requires a medium or large beverage purchase. It hardly “free.”

    Is there a reason why Consumerist cannot become advocates for requiring that “free” actually be free? Any purchase requirement does not make it free and it should state so. Seriously if the special conditions language had to be the same size as the offer language this shadiness would cease to exist.

    also… that aeropostale sitewide discount was only valid on 8/15, not today.

  7. ludwigk says:

    Just to scoff at their “one chance to print” restrictions, I used print to PDF to save the coupon to my desktop. But, since I don’t currently have a color printer hooked up, I won’t be able to use this coupon anyways.

    I don’t really understand the requirement of using a color printer, unless McDonalds recently formed a deal with Epson or something. The cost per page including consumables of ink jet can approach 70-80 cents depending on the printer. So, saving $.20 on a sandwich at McDs after printing? Bleh.

    Of course those of you with color lasers can go to town!

  8. @ludwigk: Well, a color copy at like Kinkos or Staples or Office Depot is about the same price. But unless your McDonalds is in the same plaza as those stores, it’s probably not worth it.
