Friday Find - Coffee for Less

Welcome to another FRIDAY FIND here in Mel's World Shopping Biz!

I absolutely LOVE Friday's and look forward to it each and every week so I can "sniff" out the BEST deals on the internet right now.

Did you know that there are 97 (I think) days until Christmas is here? In the time between NOW and Christmas there are going to be tons of late nights, long days, parties, get togethers, and so many other things for you to "entertain" your friends and family with and one thing that seems to be the central focus when my friends and I get together is COFFEE!!!!

So, check out this week's Friday Find --->
Coffee For Less!
There are SO many of my favorites "floating around" in that BIG brown box there...yummy!

(In case you can't see that picture clearly it says "Florida Shoppers get 10% off orders over $100" with Coupon Code "FL1")

Any of these coffees can be purchased for personal use, for corporate use, or even make GREAT gifts! Especially with the holidays sneaking up on us! Go directly to their web page at Coffee For Less for a look at ALL the amazing choices!
Purchase two cases of the following boxes of Folgers or Millstone Office coffee packs that sells and you will receive up to $60.00 CASH MAILED TO YOU.

Some restrictions apply.

I absolutely LOVE for a couple of reasons! They are almost always the best price, they have the bags that are next to impossible to find in the stores (ie. the BLACK JANSPORT backpack both my boys just HAD to have for school), and they have great deals on shipping!

With the holidays just over 100 days away now is a GREAT time to start thinking of those gifts, handbags, back packs, suitcases, or other bags you might want.

With over 500 brands there is a good chance that will have whatever brand you are looking for! Here are just a few:
