Discounts, Deals, Coupons, Rebates-Oh My!

* Discounts, Deals, Coupons, Rebates- Oh My!

I think that most of you guys know that Jeff Eats was “born” in 2006…

Prior to birth, the soon to be Jeff Eats couldn’t have given a good-crap about Discounts, Deals, Coupons, Rebates…lucky for me, the future Mrs. Jeff Eats was a Discounts, Deals, Coupons, Rebates’ fan.

To make a long story short, Jeff Eats’ birth and the US financial collapse of 2007-2009–got me real interested in Discounts, Deals, Coupons, Rebates.

With the above in mind, Jeff Eats has a “DEALS” category. If and when you guys come across Discounts, Deals, Coupons, Rebates that make sense–tell me and I’ll pass them along to other Jeff Eats’ readers.

While I’m on the subject of “trying” to save money, be sure that you closely check your credit card monthly bills-you’d be surprised as to how many errors “those” guys make and trust me, those mistakes-don’t break in your favor. Another area you should be looking at is, cable and phone bills. Trust me, a simple call to either vendor “might” result in your getting discounts you never even thought about. For example, a recent Jeff Eats’ bitch session with Comcast resulted in them -just giving me a $20 a month credit for the next 12 months…a recent Jeff Eats bitch session with ATT had it lowering my landline long distance service from $34 a month to $17. Another area, all of these late fees/convenience fees you get charged-just bitch and threaten to cancel the “service” and you’ll see them disappear.

You know and I know- that when you buy something, someone out there would have been willing to sell it to you-cheaper…the goal is for you to find that “cheaper” guy.

Real fast…be smart and check your auto policy. Trust me that $500 collision deductible should be $1,000 and you’ll save premium money. How about on that car lease, the roadside service you pay for on your insurance policy-check, but I’ll bet you already get that service as part of your lease deal. Take a look at your homeowner’s policy…there are tons of things you can do to cut that bill and and when you go to make a claim- you won’t be any worse off-for having made the changes. Be smart, review auto and home owner policies with “licensed agents” and they’ll save you plenty of money.

For you Medicare Folks…Supplement F is the best! Right! Well how come you didn’t buy Supplement F High Deductible? Google-Time..cheaper and you get the same coverage.

Not trying to be Angie’s List or nothing…just be smart, question all of your bills and you’ll save money. Guaranteed!


Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that no business likes to lose a customer. With that in mind, don’t be scared to threaten your cable company, phone company, newspaper, gardener, a/c guy, “you name the business” that you’ll probably be moving-on, unless they can do something on the price-front to make you a happy camper!


Like I said 14 seconds ago, if you see a real good discount, deal, coupon, rebate pass it along…I’m thinking that the money is better served in your pocket than the business owners’ bank account.

Finally, if you need a BED BATH & BEYOND COUPON-just write me…Mrs. Jeff Eats has a kitchen drawer full of them-suckers!

    Jeff your right i just did the same with Directv and they took off 30.00 a month for a year. She also offered me the NFL ticket but as a Bucs fan i dont need to watch them suck i can read about it the next day:)

    Like you,
    Bitched and Comcast gave me 10 off a month and Att 10 off my landline a month.
    These big companies are just ripping everyone off.

    Great column.
    On that pd collision deductible you are correct. You should carry 1000 not 500.
    On Bed Bath, I have never seen anyone not using a coupon in that store.
    I also looked at you Medicare F High Deductible and you are right it is a better deal than the straight F.
    There are so many ways to get bills reduced and get better prices. People just have to have the energy to fight big companies and not be scared off by their customer service people.
    The worst in our area Is COMCAST. Their call center people lie and are absolute imebeciles. Trick with Comcast is to call the corporate office and bitch.
