    Hi- Thanks Ronnie. I just got an order from them, and so I am on their email list, but I did not get that one about the Evanston store opening. Apparently all of his stores have been touchless for a while. He said that none of his employees have gotten the virus. He is trying to promote his stores to take pressure off of his mail order business. He is afraid he will not be able to keep up with his mail order business. He also has nutmeg, poultry stuffing seasoning, and one other Thanksgiving seasoning on sale for $1, but only at one of his stores, and he has some gift box coupons that can also only be used at one of his stores.

    When I ordered a gift card from him a few weeks ago, I was supposed to get a free mug, but then they ran out, and so now I can just pick it up at the Evanston store when they get more in.

    He is also encouraging people to not travel for Thanksgiving. I was not planning on doing it, but I am sure a lot of people will go somewhere. Thanks, Nancy

    Hi- I just got an email from Penzey's. Through 12/28 if you order $5 worth of spices from them, you get your choice of a 1/2 cup jar of one of their spices. I assume you can get the free jar if you order online, and then pick it up at one of their stores too. They are currently lowering the amount needed for free shipping to $25. They seem to have a lot more deals than Spice House, although Spice House has free shipping if you order everything in one of their flat packs. Last week Penzey's had a deal where you could get any of their small bags for $1.

    Does anybody use any of Penzey's salt free seasoning? I got three different salt free seasonings for free including Revolution, Justice and Mural of Flavor which I have not used yet. I am still waiting for my free mug too.

    I received free packets of Justice in a couple recent orders. It's mainly dried alliums and I like it a lot but I definitely use it in combination with salt. Not sure if I'd actually purchase it though, because premixed seasoning blends are not usually my thing.

    Apparently Penzey's throws something extra in all of their orders. With my order I also got a love magnet, but I am still waiting on my mug which they ran out of. I think Justice is the one that is supposed to be good with pork and turkey.

    Hi- I receive regular emails from Bill Penzey now. He reports that he has lost quite a few customers because of his political leanings, but it sounds like he has gained more customers. He was super busy over the holidays. Right now he has a free shipping with any $25 order deal, and he has a get the fifth item for free. He also has garlic, cinnamon, cumin and black pepper on sale. He is also giving every person a V is for victory pin. Last week he gave everyone some commemorative coins. They are still doing the contactless sales at their stores. You order online and then somebody from the store calls you up and schedules a time for you to pick up your purchase at the store. I am still waiting for my love mug which they ran out of in November. The coins and the pin I don't want, and hopefully I can tell them not to include that type of stuff in my order.

    They do have one ounce bags of spices which they have put on sale for $1 occasionally. Does anybody know if I place an order online, and then pick it up at one of their stores, if they still include the free spice sample, or if that is only for mail order purchases? Right now I have three different spice blends that I got for free, and I have not used any of them yet, although I might use the mural of flavor in some root soup I am going to make this weekend. Hope this helps, Nancy

    Both the Evanston and Naperville Penzeys store are open for business. I get emails from them all the time about whatever deal they are having. For instance right now they have cinnamon on sale for $1 a jar. When you go to the store, will they also have the deals, or do you have to order online and then do store pickup to get the deals?

    Hi- I got an email from Penzey's today. Through tomorrow they are giving away a 1/4 cup jar of granulated garlic and a 1/4 cup jar of curry, or a 1/4 cup jar of thyme, and a 1/4 cup jar of smoked paprika. You can go to their website and print the coupon to get it free at one of their stores, or you can show them the email they sent you on your phone. This offer is good only through 7/11. You can also get it for free online with the code ONE but then you have to pay for shipping.

    Looks like the Penzey's free spices offer doesn't work correctly online. I tried to do an in-store pickup order and the codes don't add anything to the cart. YMMV, but I suspect that going to their store is the only way to get the free spices. It's a good deal if you are near a store and can go tomorrow.

    Yes, the offer is for in-store only . . .

    Thanks, Ron, I didn't decode the fine print carefully enough. Hope someone here was able to pick up some of these. It's a good deal and I rarely feel bad about taking full advantage of Penzey's offers since the prices are now high compared to the good old days.

    They really buried it and it was worded confusingly. That said, I'm on their email list and they run decent specials all the time. And yes, I agree. Spice prices are high these days, so it's always good to take advantage of a special offer.

    The offer should work online, but you will have to pay for shipping if you're ordering less than $40 worth of stuff. The code does lower shipping to $4.95, though.

    So we are to the point in our no purchase needed, flat-out-free-if-you-can-get-to-one-of-our-stores spice offer where our stores are all closed, but don’t fret. We have the free shipping at $40, but through midnight we’ve also temporarily dropped the price for shipping small orders by $4 to just $4.95.

    If you want to get just a few items, or even nothing more than your choice of the free $7.90 really good Garlic/Ginger combo or free really good Thyme/Smoked Paprika combo, now is the time.

    Just visit us online at penzeys.com and enter One in the apply code box at checkout for the Granulated Garlic and Powdered Ginger 1/4-cup jars, enter Two for the 1/4-cup Jars of French Thyme and Smoked Paprika. And no need for you to place the jars in your cart. Your choice of the codes will do that for you and for free. It really is easy.
