One coupon insert coming this Sunday plus a bonus in Parade

It's a one-insert Sunday in this Sunday's home-delivered Final Edition of The News & Observer.

Look for one Smart Source coupon booklet with 52 coupons worth $65 face value.

But be sure to look for a coupon bonus in the Parade magazine.

FREE McDonald's Cherry Berry Chiller

Remember that surprise freebie I hinted at in Sunday's paper?

Be sure to check your Parade magazine. You'll find a coupon for a free Cherry Berry Chiller peeking out of the top of the magazine.

This is a new frozen drink McDonald's is offering. These typically cost $2 and up so a great freebie.

There's also a coupon for $1 off a medium or large frozen strawberry lemonade, frappe or fruit smoothie.

Database updated with Sunday's new coupons

The News & Observer's coupon database has been updated with all of Sunday's new coupons.

The home-delivered Final Edition of The News & Observer contains two inserts -- one Smart Source and a Red Plum -- for a total of 134 coupons with a face value of nearly $150.

Be sure to snag the coupon for a FREE Cherry Berry Chiller from McDonald's that's in the Parade magazine, along with another coupon for $1 off a medium or large McCafe frozen strawberry lemonade, frappe or smoothie.

It's a handy tool, listing every coupon we receive in the Triangle in the Sunday N&O.

Two coupon inserts plus a surprise freebie in Sunday's N&O

Look for two coupon inserts in this Sunday's home-delivered Final Edition of The News & Observer.

One Smart Source and one Red Plum are scheduled with a combined total of 134 coupons worth nearly $150 before double or triple coupons come into play.

Coupon database updated

I've updated the coupon database with the handful of coupons from today's Parade magazine.

I've also deleted all the expired coupons and highlighted in bold the 434 coupons that will expire this week as we head toward the new year.

It's now or never to score deals with those Dec. 31 coupons.

No Sunday coupon inserts

Since Christmas lands on a Sunday this year, there won't be any coupon inserts in Sunday's newspaper.

There will, however, be a handful of coupons in Parade magazine.

Enjoy your holidays.

 

Time for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Thanksgiving. It's about giving thanks, eating turkey, kicking back with football, planning your Black Friday shopping strategy, and of course, watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Airing on NBC and CBS at 9am (except CBS drops the "Macy's" tag), the parade begins at Central Park West in New York City and ends with an appearance by Santa Claus at Herald Square.

The parade will feature performances by Jimmy Fallon, Kanye West, Keri Hilson, Kylie Minogue, Jessica Simpson, India Arie, Big Time Rush, The Muppets, Carrie Underwood, and Gladys Knight,  as well as performances from Broadway shows like "American Idiot" and various marching bands.

And don't forget the balloons!

Here are some photos from the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade rehearsal.

NCCU's marching band: All grown up

In today's Durham News, more on the recent selection of N.C. Central University's Marching Sound Machine band to perform in the 2011 Tournament of Roses.

That's the New Year's Day Rose Bowl parade, one prong of the holy trinity of achievement for marching bands. (Also coveted: a slot in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and the John Philip Sousa Foundation's Sudler Trophy recognizing the best band in the land.

In inviting the NCCU band to the big bash, the parade's director, Stacy Houser, wrote to band director Jorim Reid that the band was chosen because of "excellent musical talents, entertainment value, performance skills, efforts and your outstanding directorship."

Some factoids on the parade, in case you're thinking of going:

* The parade is held in Pasadena, Calif. 

* It starts at 8 a.m. local time. The route is about 5.5 miles and the parade lasts about 2.5 hours.

*The parade draws about 40 million television viewers each year.
