Deals on carpet cleaning, furniture, kiddie stuff, milk and Redbox

I'm all over the map today with deals from carpet cleaning to milk. Let's start with a good deal offered by the Strib on carpet cleaning. A lot of carpet cleaners offer similar deals, but few rate as highly as CarpetClean. For $85.50 (regularly $171) you get three areas cleaned. CarpetClean is check rated for superior quality and reasonable prices by Twin Cities Consumers' Checkbook. In fact, 91 percent of CC's customers surveyed rated the company's performance "superior." The deal runs through Sunday, and the cleaning must be completed by Nov. 30. This is a good time of year to schedule a carpet cleaning when the humidity is lower and carpets dry faster.

 

 

The Oh Baby! Outlet (743 E. Lake St., Wayzata, 952-404-0170) is closing Saturday, so everything is discounted an additional 25 percent. Co-owner Tom Lauer said there is a still a large selection of girls' summer and fall clothing, baby bedding, adult bedding from the sister store Que Sera in twin, full and queen sizes, and decorative pillows for the home, also from Que Sera. Everything is already marked down at least 50 percent or more, including baby and children's designer clothing, shoes, accessories, nursery furniture, accent tables, mirrors and bookcases. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Saturday.

One of the best furniture consignment shops in the Twin Cities, the Wabi Sabi Shop, is celebrating its 2nd anniversary by offering an additional 10 percent off everything through Sunday. Wabi Sabi is one of the few furniture consignment shops that doesn't look like a thrift shop or antique shop. Prices are excellent.

Redbox offers one free DVD movie rental today for a one-night rental. Go to the site for your neighborhood kiosk and a list of available movies.

Lunds/Byerly's stores  have milk on sale for only $1.99 per gallon (limit 2) through Wednesday. General Mills cereals are also a good deal, including Cheerios.
