The Best Easter Weekend Deals and Freebies
Bass Pro Shops holds free events every weekend, and FreeStuffTimes alerts us that this weekend is all about Easter. Go to the fishing supply store on Saturday or Sunday and your kids can participate in a free egg hunt, decorate their own bunny magnet, and get a free 4-by-6-inch photo with the Easter Bunny. The events will be happening at most locations, but check the website to make sure your own local shop isn't excluded.
If you're like us, you go to the local drugstore for your Easter candy. Walgreensis offering 3 packages of marshmallow peeps for $2. You want to stock up on eggs for an egg-decorating party (or because you just happen to need eggs this weekend), you can get two-dozen store-brand eggs for $2. CVS is offering the same deal on Peeps -- Peep price war! -- as well as other deals on candy and stuffed rabbits.
