    I ordered my last set of tires on eBay. The tires were brand new Continentals and sold through Discount Tire’s eBay store. They were the same tires (ExtremeContact DWS, love them) I had previously, but were deeply discounted because of a newer version coming out. I took them to a local mechanic to have them mounted on my car.

    I’ve heard that Costco is great place to get tires, but they didn’t have what I was looking for.

    I love getting my tires from Sam’s Club. As a membership store, you get a great deal on price. But they really go above and beyond with service. They will top off the air, fix flats, and include lifetime rotation of the tires for a small fee at the time of purchase.

    Plus my family and I can browse books or share a prezel while the car is serviced. Much nicer than hanging around a garage!

  • My husband and I get our tires at Costco. We searched around and found that for us this was the best deal. We also use our Executive membership Costco card. This earns us 2% per year on our purchases (up to $750).
    I’m not sure about patio replacement cushions. I bought mine at Wal-mart but I don’t think they come close in quality to my originals.
    Good luck finding great deals!

    Tires. I heard recently that it’s best to wait for odd-holidays (President’s Day, 4th of July—think about when mattresses go on sale, lol) to find sales. You can also price match at some places, but I have had the very best service at Discount Tire.

  • KC says:

    I also went to discount tires the last time we needed them for my vehicle. They completed the tires within an hour or so (lunch). I called and let them know when I’d be in and didn’t wait any longer than the quoted time. They offer many different brands of tires as well. They had several options in my odd-sized tire. They have options that last 50-60k+ miles too.

    Aldi has patio furniture and cushions on sale this week 🙂

  • Adrienne says:

    For cushions, I’ve had the best luck at Old Time Pottery or At Home

  • Lori says:

    Costco is worth the cost of the membership on tires alone! And then you have the membership for a year to buy other great deals! Cough it up for the executive membership and get 2% back–satisfaction guaranteed.

    We buy our tires at Costco. I’m not a huge name brand buyer, but will always buy name brand tires. I feel they last longer with less issues. We also had a life altering incident from use of cheaper/inferior tires.

  • Crystal says:

    Ikea some some nice patio furniture for a very reasonable price last time I was there( a couple weeks ago?). I purchased a simple patio set at Target halfway through summer for 75% off last year. If you are willing to wait for it and take what you can get, that might be good option to get a great deal on patio purniture.

  • Amanda says:

    Check out smaller local shops for tires. Be sure to factor in the costs some stores add to actually put the tires on your car. My family owns a small business that does tires and though up front it sometimes seems that the tires are more, it usually ends up that we are less expensive after you add in all the random fees at bigger chains.

      I know this won’t necessarily help the original poster, but I second this. My local tire shop is awesome. I don’t even know how they compare price wise to bigger places, but their service is excellent. Free flat repairs and no extra tire disposal fee. I have pulled up and had them swarm around my car and within what seems like 10 minutes I’m on my way….without even making an appointment. Try THAT at a bigger chain! 🙂

  • Amber says:

    My husband works at discount tire company and they beat any tire price.

  • D says:

    Yes, aldi for patio furniture and cushions – this week only!

    • Annette says:

      Aldi this week for patio cushions. Also Sams club for tires. I have done a lot of research and the pricing st Sams club is great.

  • Shannon says:

    Costco has replacement cushions for patio furniture. I’d get them sooner rather than later as Costco doesn’t seem to restock seasonal items.

  • joe says:

    i see many are saying to go to subscription clubs for tires.
    i saved a lot by going to sears. here’s why. 1) no club fee. 2) they price match, and don’t forget you’ll likely need an alignment. so price match tires and alignment. 3) use shop your way rewards coupons toward purchase, or redeem points on purchase, or earn points on purchase 4) pay with gift cards. buy gift cards for sears/kmart that earn you rewards or fuel at kroger or giant eagle or wherever. 5) sears is nationwide if you have issues later.
    i waited for a tire sale, price matched the alignment, used a shop your way discount coupon, and paid with gift cards that earned 12% back in free gas from the grocery store. and earned 1% in rewards points at shop your way.
    that’s an easy way to save approx 15% on top of the sale price.

  • Ashley says:

    Big lots has the cutest patio furniture cushions and budget friendly too!

  • Nicki says:

    Facebook yard sale groups are a great way to find deals on patio sets!
