Looking a for a deal on SUV tires

I drive a Chevy Suburban SUV because we're a large family - 8 of us - and so driving a small car is definitely not a practical thing. The hubby doesn't drive to work, he carpools, so we're not a two car family but we should be. Our eldest will be taking drivers ed this spring or summer (she turns 16 in the fall) and so we're going to need that second car but until then my SUV needs tires. My car tires: LT 265 75R 16.

So, some time this week I'm going to be calling around the different tire stores in town to find the lowest prices on my tires. I know of the following tire stores in town, any that I'm missing?
  • Les Schwab Tire Center
  • Perfection Tire
  • Big O Tires
  • Costco
  • Lewis Street Tire
  • Tri-Cities Battery & Auto Repair
  • Steve's Tire Factory
  • Discount Tire
I know Walmart sells tires and the three are different stores but I've had too many bad experiences with Walmart's Tire Center that I just won't use them any more. I'll still call them to find out their price on my tire size.

Where to get coupons

BEST PLACE: The Sunday newspaper!

In stores:

Blinkies – Found on various store aisles these little machines spit out coupons as you pull them out. Most blinkies have little lights that blink hence the name.

Catalinas – Receipt-like coupons printed at the register. Not all stores have Catalinas (such as WinCo). These are typically NOT printed on the back of the register receipt.

Hang/Wine Tags – Found around the neck of a bottle with a little piece of string or rubber band.

Peelies – Coupons found on certain products that peel away from the product.

Tearpads – Coupons on a tear away pad. Typically found in a display and not directly on the product.

Other ways:

Home mailers - sign up for products online or even contact a company to either complain or complement their products. Click here for a blog with over 200 links to companies that will mail you coupons!

Internet coupons - There are many places online that you can print coupons from. See links below for printable online coupons.

Magazines – Pretty much all magazines will have coupons in it. Better Homes & Gardens, Sunset, Parenting, Working Mother are a few. The BEST magazine with coupons is All You magazine.
