From holiday gift ideas to $2 lunches this month, WFAA's Insider Savings expert Laura Thornquist shares the details.


You know that hard-to-buy-for person on your shopping list, the one who has everything? Sometimes thinking outside the box is the only way to go. 

So, today I have some very different gift ideas from Orange Onions at a special WFAA price.

A hand-painted metallic Christmas gift box cookie jar retails for $39.99, but right now you can pick it up for only $9.99.

Cars merchandise is really popular this season, so check out this Cars large rolling luggage for the special WFAA price of $25.99; it retails for $59.99.

And finally, get a portable folding Foosball table by Restoration Hardware for almost 50 percent off the retail price. It is now only $65.99.

If you want to pick up any of these gift, use the coupon code WFAAXMAS at checkout. I have the link on my site.

And, if you are looking for an inexpensive lunch this month, head over to Subway or Burger King.

Pick up a Subway six-inch Cold Cut Combo or a six-inch Meatball Marinara sandwich for only $2. This deal is good throughout the entire month of December. You will have to pay more for extra toppings.

And, make sure and like Burger King on Facebook. Starting Friday, you will be able to get a coupon for a buy one get one free Whopper.

And, if you plan on giving a $25 Cheesecake Factory gift card to anyone this holiday, you will be rewarded with a "Slice of Joy," or one complimentary slice of cheesecake. The Slice of Joy cards will be mailed to your home. Then, bring it to The Cheesecake Factory between December 26 and March 31 for a free slice of cheesecake.
