Happy Friday and thanks for tuning into KTAR News on Friday! Please check out some of my favorite deals to start your weekend with and I hope you’ll like Alicia’s Deals on Facebook, follow me on Twitter and join the Alicia’s Deals e-mail list!



Hooray! Friday is First Friday! If you don’t have plans, you may want to head to downtown Phoenix to enjoy the gorgeous weather, some beautiful art, an Ollie the Trolley ride and some FREE museums! Anyone that says Phoenix has no culture has obviously never been to First Friday!


Head to the Children’s Museum of Phoenix where everyone will get in free from 5-9 p.m. Tickets are usually $11 each, so this is quite an opportunity to play for less!


Visit the Heard Museum for their First Friday Native + You program.Everyone will get into the museum FOR FREE from 6-10 p.m. (tickets are usually $18 for adults, $7.50 for kids), and there will be music, breakdancing, lowriders and more!


Still have energy? Go to the Phoenix Art Museum for their First Friday event. Everyone will get in for free from 6-10 p.m. (tickets are usually $15 for adults, $6 for kids).


If it’s date night and you’re leaving the kids at home, head to Adults Night Out at the Arizona Science Center. Adults will get in free from 5:30-9 p.m. (tickets are usually $16.95). They’ll have a cash bar and lots of fun!

Just to recap, if you take your family of four (two adults, two kids) to the Children’s Museum of Phoenix, the Heard Museum, and the Phoenix Art Museum, you’ll save a whopping $137 on admission (more if you have more kids).

If it’s date night, I’m assuming you won’t head to the Children’s Museum, but you and your date will save $99.90 on tickets to the Arizona Science Center, the Heard, and the Phoenix Art Museum. AND you’re sure to have a great time!


If you’re a runner, you know how important good shoes are. Head over here to get HALF-OFF Saucony Guide 7 running shoes for men and women. You’ll pay $59.99 instead of $120 and the reviews are amazing.


If you were ever part of the Book It program, I’m sure you will think this is as cool as I do! Head over here to let them know you’re an alumni and you’ll get a free personal pan pizza within 48 hours! It was kind of tricky to get the form to go down, I had to drag it down in the center, not the side like I usually do.


It’s Friends and Family time at Michael’s! Head over here to print off a coupon for 25 percent off your entire purchase including sale items (there are a few exclusions noted on the coupon).


I was so sad to learn that Fry’s changed their coupon policy as of Oct 1. Now all coupons are no longer worth at least $1.


On the plus side I found amazing deals at Albertsons this week. Head over here to find out how to get a box of General Mills cereal for $0.74, a dozen eggs for $0.74, and a gallon of milk for $1.74. If you wear your Cardinals jersey on Sunday to the store you’ll get 10 percent off your entire purchase!



Head over here to save an extra 15 percent off home and auto services from Groupon with code HOME15.

I saw car wash deals, auto repair deals, even a party bus rental!


Head over here to get up to 55 percent off tickets to Phoenix Ballet’s (formerly Ballet and Friends) production of “The Nutcracker”!

Tickets are available for as low as $24 (including all fees) and performances are Dec. 12-14 and they’re going fast.
