Thanksgiving Coupons for Your Meal….Hurry & Print

English: Photo showing some of the aspects of ...

Thanksgiving is this week Thursday and here are the coupons that are still available to help you save money on your dinner. Many of us here in the northeast are still recovering from Hurricane Sandy and the nor’easter that slammed us back to back. Even if you are not planning to do a dinner, these coupons are great for you to get items real cheap that can be donated to your local food pantry. Many people in the Rocaways, Staten Island, Brooklyn, and New Jersey are still displaced and every bit helps. My daughters’ school is having a canned goods drive and I’m using many of these coupons to get the donation items on the cheap.

$95 for a Tutoring Package with Skills Assessment and Six Tutoring Sessions at Sylvan Learning Center (Up to $663 Value)

Hitting the books is a good way to get smarter, but a bad way to stop the story’s protagonist from walking into the abandoned mansion on the hill. Teach young students to read with care with this Groupon.

$95 for a Tutoring Package (Up to $663 Total Value)

  • Diagnostic skills assessment
  • Six one-hour tutoring sessions in any subject that Sylvan offers
  • Registration fee

Programs are adapted to fit the needs of each child with diagnostic skills assessments, following by tutoring sessions. Class sizes may vary by location.

Though Sylvan Learning sometimes offers a discounted rate online, this Groupon still presents the best deal available.

Sylvan Learning Center

The staff members at Sylvan Learning’s numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.

Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. Camps and after-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.

Teammates Taylor Dugas and Matt Snyder are neck and neck among the league’s top-15 batters, with each of their respective averages hovering around .300. Located on the northern tip of Staten Island, Richmond County Bank Ballpark’s outfield frames a view of the distant Manhattan and the open water, its accumulated home runs now formed into a reef of jersey-wearing clownfish.

LaSalle Mixed Martial Arts cultivates a noncompetitive, safe, and fun environment as pupils learn striking and grappling techniques and how to defend themselves from throngs of rabid lucha libres. In addition to emphasizing technical skills and developing strength, the children’s mixed-martial-arts program encourages kids to hone valuable life skills such as self-discipline, self-esteem, and concentration.

Beyond mixed-martial-arts classes, the studio also offers fitness classes, including cardio kickboxing and strength and conditioning training, and women’s self-defense classes.

$20 for $40 Worth of Contemporary American Cuisine at Rick’s Cafe

Without a distinctive ambience, restaurants would be cafeterias, and nightclubs would be drab mating warrens. Add character to your meals with this Groupon.

Waiters serve wine and cocktails to pair with dishes topped with such toothsome curiosities as truffle porcini cream, chipotle ketchup, and marrownaise. Inspired by the character Rick Blaine from Casablanca, owner Joseph Aliotta steeps Rick’s Cafe in a classic ambience set to big-band music—the building itself dates back from the Prohibition era, having sprouted from a single cluster of hops. Drinking glasses refract light onto an antique mahogany bar in front of an exposed brick wall. A fireplace illuminates cherry hardwood floors in the dining room, and a private outdoor patio hosts alfresco dining.
