Country Time Moneymaker!

If you haven't already done the lemonade deal I mentioned here than go ahead & print the coupon but wait to buy it until 5/29. There is a Catalina deal that starts that day - you get $1 OYNO when you buy 2.

Cheap Coppertone!

There's a new printable coupon for $3 off Coppertone. There are kids sunscreen sticks priced right about $3.99 at Target. I'm sure Walmart may have them even cheaper. The best part is that you can print multiple copies of this coupon. Click here and go to the lower left hand corner of the page for the coupon.

Memorial Day - Free Swagbuck!!

Go here to see how to get a free Swagbuck code! Still don't do Swagbucks? Click here.

I LOVE the "Supervisor" at my Target

To the "supervisor" at my Target: I really love it that you take the time to make me feel like a valued customer. You clearly go out of your way to make this "guest" feel appreciated for spending money at your place of employment. Just the fact that I can count on you to come over to whichever lane I am in to scrutinize my transaction and then talk about me to 5 other employees really makes me feel glad that I choose to shop at my local Target. I honestly cannot comprehend why you make up bogus rules about Target's coupon policy - I have Target's coupon policy so don't push me lady.

All sarcasm aside, I have been pleasant with this employee and all I have gotten in return is a rude attitude and her vaguely mentioning the "Asset Protection" guy makes me feel like a criminal - it's just wrong. The first run-in I had with this guest services employee I posted a little about it here.

The other day my total was $120 before coupons - it included $38 worth of birthday gifts for my twins. I had a great cashier, she spoke little English but was getting through the transaction just fine. This is when the "supervisor" decides to come over and ask my cashier "what's the problem here?" My cashier says there's no problem and that's when power trip lady decided to say that I can only use one of a certain coupon in the transaction. I didn't say anything because I want to be nice (not make any waves) & THANK GOD she leaves. I am so glad I kept my mouth shut otherwise I probably would have left with nothing. Anyway my cashier is the only one checking out people and, of course, a line starts to form. Meanwhile psycho "supervisor" is in Starbucks with 5 other employees. I look at her and she is OBVIOUSLY talking about me. It was incredibly rude and humiliating. The cashier says "she's my supervisor so I have to do what she says." I tell her that if she's the supervisor she should be doing her job and either getting more cashiers or just checkout out people herself rather than badmouthing me. Now I am dreading going back to Target.

This is what I got. Not pictured are the $38 in gifts. I paid just over $31 for everything, gifts included. The Soothe drops were great moneymakers because they were clearanced for $.48.

Safeway Moneymaker !!!

I hope everyone is getting their Kraft dressing at Safeway this week. It's on sale for $1.35 & using the $1.50 insert coupon they are a moneymaker.

Coke with an in-ad coupon was 4 for $9 - I also used 4 $1 printable coupons from a couple weeks ago to get them for $5.

Ballpark hot dogs were clearanced & I had a coupon. There were also blinkie coupons by the smoked sausage for Free Sara Lee bread wyb 2 Ball park or Hillshire Farm so I got 2 buns for free. I also grabbed a couple extra blinkies to use them at City Market with their BOGO Hillshire Farm sale.

That was about it. Bought what I needed: fruit, veggies & stocked up on some meat. Total OOP $31.38, saved 77%.

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

On Sunday I was headed to Rite Aid & my 4 year old asked, "Mommy, are you walking to Rite Aid?" "Yes" I said. He very sincerely looks at me and says "Don't get run over by a car, because I love you very much." I thought it was very sweet...creepy, but sweet.

Another Rite Aid Freebie!

The large Hershey's chocolate bars are BOGO at $1.99 ea. Use 2 of the $1 off dark chocolate coupon from 4/19(?) SS to get 2 for free. I picked up 18 of these tonight & also bought Natural Instincts hair color for $7.99 - $2 in-ad coupon and $4 manuf. coupon. plus some small filler items. My total was $1.31 OOP. I had a checker that I don't usually have and she argued with me about using a Rite Aid coupon plus a manuf. coupon for the same item. It was pretty clear though that I knew more about their coupon policy than she did. But I think I will be making a copy of it to keep in my coupon box just in case. Now I just have to get rid of 18 bars of chocolate.

Check out the Drugstore Divas here.

Great Week at Rite Aid!

This is an awesome week to get free items at Rite Aid. I've made 3 trips so far and have done 9 transactions. The best deal, in my opinion, is the Bayer Contour meter. They are on sale for $19.99 - use the coupon from 2/1 RP and then pair that up with the Rite Aid $5 off $25 coupon to get some great deals.

Here are some of the FAR (Free After Rebate) items at Rite Aid. Feel free to ask if you have questions about the deals this week.

Over 300 Swagbucks!!

I'm so excited to have earned 50 Swagbucks in 1 week!! Thanks to everyone who signed up last Monday. I hope you all are enjoying earning Swagbucks too. If you still are not doing Swagbucks you can sign up here.

Deal of the Day - Joint Juice Moneymaker

Joint Juice is on sale at Safeway for $.88 right now. Use the $1 off coupon from 4/26 SS. I used 7 of these to get them for free plus the overage paid for some lemons I needed for supper. Saved 102%!

Friday, May 15, 2009

Safeway deals

I know there's something wrong when I'm disappointed by only saving 85%. I really got spoiled by the Living Well promo, so sad to see it go. I paid $19.04 for this and am mad at myself because I forgot to use a $1 coupon.

Deal of the Day - Free Aquafresh at Target!

Aquafresh Advanced was on sale for $2 at my Target. It wasn't signed that price but I took it to a scanner to check. Use the $1 off printable coupon from smartsource combined with a $1 off Target coupon here to get it for free.

Target Deals

I paid a little over $3 OOP for these items. The Clear Care was the most expensive at just over $12 but there was a $3 coupon in last Sunday's paper so I was very happy about that. Use the Kraft coupons from (coupon printer above) and at Kraft's website combined with Target coupons from here to get Nabisco 100 Calorie packs for $.04, Kraft mayo for $.24, Kraft natural cheese for $.99. Use the Banana Boat coupon from last week (no size restriction) to get trial size sunscreen for free. Also use the Kraft Capri Sun umm... I mean Crystal Light coupon to get the small 3pack up by the registers for free.

I would hang on to the Ritz coupons because I hear there may be a good one to combine it with coming in the paper on Sunday.

City Market (King Soopers) Moneymaker!!

I hope everyone has been printing the new Kraft coupons that came out the other day. If not there's a great list of sites that have the printable coupons at Nifty Thrifty Mamma's blog here. Print 6 of the Kraft BBQ sauce $1 coupons and take them to City Market. Buy 6 of them for $1 each, get them for free and you will also get a Catalina coupon for $3.00 off your next order. This worked for me today so you better hurry and do it now!

Last 3 Living Well Receipts

My last 3 transactions at Safeway were probably the best. I saved 101%, 105% & 103%!! I'm exhausted from this promo but can't wait for another one!

Tuesday, May 5, 2009

Safeway Today Only!!!

ANOTHER awesome deal at Safeway. Magic Erasers are part of LW promo & are on sale for $3 ea. Use the BOGO coupons from this Sunday's P&G insert.

So I bought:
10 Magic Erasers = $30

5 BOGO coupons $15
$10 LW g/c from last night

The total would have been $5 that I could have paid withmy Sara Lee $5 cat from last night but my cashier entered the BOGO coupons for the full value of $3.69 so.... I saved a total of 104% and paid $.76 for these items!!

Monday, May 4, 2009

And Even More Safeway Deals...

There's a new Safeway promo right now that you can stack with the Living Well promo - at least till tomorrow. Buy 5 Sara Lee products & get a $5 OYNO cat. On the Ball Park Franks there are $1 peelies. I paid $7.52 OOP & got $17 back.

The $5 Sara Lee cat & the $2 water cat printed fine but for some reason the $10 LW cat didn't. I talked to the manager right then & told him the only thing I changed was the Ball Park items. He confirmed that it should have printed & gave me a g/c for $10. Just a note: if my cat doesn't print I'm not one whose going to call the cat company & wait for it in the mail. If the store won't do something about it than I return my items & get my coupons back.

Another great deal is the Extra Fruit Sensations. It's on sale BOGO right now & combined with the BOGO coupons you can get them both for free. ymmv

The End is Near!

That's right. Let the countdown begin. We are in the last days of the Safeway Living Well promo. Did 2 transactions today using the $3 off Goodlife printable coupons here.

I saved 98% and 99%.

I LOVE Safeway Right Now!

Okay I LOVE the promo right now, not necessarily the employees. Actually I'm very disappointed about how many of them seem to think I am ripping them off somehow. I'm spending alot of money in their store, it's just not me paying it!

Stopped at Safeway, once again. I paid about $35 for these items. But I messed up and bought the wrong size of Frosted Flakes so I'll have to go back (uh oh) to get it right. On my second transaction I actually saved 99%!

I bought what I needed: milk, chicken, pork loin, broccoli, trash bags, tortilla shells, etc. along with items for 2 LW transactions.

Also a great deal was the Coke sale. I cashed in some of my Coke Rewards to get (4) $1 off coupons and got 4 Coke 12 packs & a case of Dasani water for $8!

Kellogg's Coupon Sites

Here's the coupon sites I found to print multiple Kellogg's coupons. Be sure to print 2 from each site.

There are printables here, here, here, and here.

If you have access to more than one computer you can print even more.

Target Steals!

There's still plenty of time to get some great deals at Target. The best deal was the small Starbucks chocolate that was on clearance. Using the $1/1 coupon from a couple weeks ago made them moneymakers.

Other amazing deals:

Use your Special K coupons that are on the site, buy 5 boxes and get a $5 g/c.
Using a Target coupon & $1.50/1 Kraft dressing coupons made them free.

I paid under $10 for these items & got a $5 g/c back.
