Bargain Hunter finds free fun for gifts of food

first_imgCOASTERS FOR CANNED FOOD: Get free admission to Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia on Wednesday when you bring a full bag of canned goods or other nonperishable food. Tickets are normally about $30 to $60. The park is trying to fill the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank in time for Thanksgiving. CHEAP EATS INDIAN: Here’s a Lincoln Lunch to end all Lincoln Lunches. A $5 meal at the vegetarian India Sweets and Spices in Canoga Park is unparalleled in size and a top contender for quality. I surrendered my Lincoln fiver for a samosa, pakora (shredded veggies dipped in chickpea batter and fried), yellow rice, yogurt curry, stewed chickpeas, a tangy yogurt sauce to cool my tongue, chapati (like a very flat naan), a piece of crispy poori, onions and pickles. I couldn’t eat half of it! Everything was hot and spicy, but not enough to make my nose run. My table wasn’t perfectly clean, but the floors were, and before I left an employee came out to wipe every table. It’s at 22009 Sherman Way, just west of Topanga Canyon Boulevard. (818) 887-1417.

KB TOYS SALE: Get a free toy when you buy three. My guess is the cheapest thing you buy will be the freebie. Just a hunch. Expires Wednesday. LINENS ‘N THINGS 20% OFF: Get 20% off one item at Linens ‘n Things with a printable coupon at www.insidesocal.com/bargain. Expires Dec. 31. Caveats: not good online or on SharperImage, All-Clad, J.A. Henckels, Tempur-Pedic, Godiva Chocolates and a few more brands. BEST BIRD PRICES: T-day is this week. Egads! I’ve got my head so buried in bargains, the holiday crept up on me. The sale that brought me out of the fog was from Ralphs. The 12- to 24-pound frozen turkeys are 37 cents a pound (with club card and $25 purchase). Albertsons has frozen birds at 39 cents a pound. Vons has 17- to 22-pound frozen Butterballs for 48 cents a pound (also with club card and $25 tab). Smart & Final has frozen birds for 99 cents a pound. One-bird limits are common. Prices good through Thursday. A reader found even lower turkey prices at Food 4 Less. Prices depend on weight but are about 27 cents to 40 cents a pound, he reported. BANANA 20% OFF: Get 20 percent off your tab at Banana Republic until Dec. 24. Looks like it’s good only online, not in stores. Go to www.insidesocal.com/bargain for the coupon code. For women, they separate dressy threads into three categories: bash, office party and house party. Seems incredibly useful.
