Keep Your Receipts!

I have recently adopted two new rules for myself regarding receipts and rebates. (As many of you know, I have just started getting into all the "rebate deals" - I used to think they were a waste of time...I now know differently!)

Rule #1: Keep all receipts.
Rule #2: Print all rebate offers.

Since implementing these two new rules about a month ago, I have come across three different rebate offers that I realized I qualified for...

By keeping all of my receipts, I can go through them as rebates are offered and see if I have qualifying items. Recently, P&G offered an deal for those who purchased $50 in their products. At first I thought there was no way that I had spent that much on P&G items, but by going back through all of my receipts, I was able to find enough products to send in for this offer. (The great thing about that particular deal was that most of the P&G items that allowed me to qualify for this were FREE or almost free through either KMart double coupons or deals at Walgreens!)

I used to see a rebate offer for either an amount that I thought I could never reach (Spend $50 in P&G products...) or for products that I thought I would never buy, and would not print it. Inevitably, I would realize a few weeks later that I could qualify for that particular rebate, only to find the rebate form not available any more. You see, companies will offer a rebate form for awhile, but will often remove it before the rebate offer is expired - most likely to keep the rebates to a minimum. By printing off all of the rebate forms as I come across them, I can always have access to them in my notebook if I need them later on.

As I type this, I have a rebate check for $7.99 on the counter next to me that I just received in the mail today - ready to be cashed! I also have two envelopes on the counter stamped and ready to be mailed...which means more money is coming. I'm telling you...this rebate stuff is FUN!!

Walmart: Lunchables for $ .25 Right Now!

I was just at our Iron Mountain, MI Walmart tonight (Friday, 4/30), and they had the Sub Sandwich Lunchables on sale for $1.25. Use the recent coupons for a great deal:
Sub Sandwich Lunchables
- $1.00 (3/21 SmartSource Coupon Inserts)
= $ .25 each after coupon!

*I'm not sure if this is a "local deal" or not...

I LOVE Coupons!!!

Okay, so this is a prime example of why you would want to have several copies of the weekly coupon inserts...I went to Walgreens tonight to take advantage of their "Buy One, Get One 50% Off" sale + use my "Buy One, Get One FREE" coupons. If I had only had one coupon, it would have been a pretty good deal, but to be able to get that deal x 3 - AWESOME! It kills me to think that I used to pay full-price for this stuff...
Cover Girl Foundation and Powder
$7.99 x 3
$7.79 x 3
- $4.00 (Buy One, Get One 50% off)
- $3.90 (Buy One, Get One 50% off)
- $3.90 (Buy One, Get One 50% off)
- $7.99 (Buy One, Get One Free Coupon)
- $7.99 (Buy One, Get One Free Coupon)
- $7.99 (Buy One, Get One Free Coupon)
- $3.00 (Register Rewards I needed to spend)
= Around $1.78 each after the sale, coupons and Register Rewards!

*A special thanks to J.B. who so generously shares her extra coupon inserts with me!

More Deals...

WooHoo! has just released some coupon codes that you DO NOT have to be a "new customer" to use! Plus, they appear to be "stackable" - meaning you can use both in one order (I haven't had a chance to try that out yet, so let me know if you find out differently!):

5FORMOM - $5.00 off any order now through 5/9.
7THGEN2 - $3.00 off any order of Seventh Generation Diapers

And don't forget, if you are a new customer, then you can use code TRIS1520 to get $10.00 off your first order of $49.00!

Here's a scenario for new customers:

Buy One Case of Seventh Generation Diapers (4 Packs) for $39.99
Buy One Jumbo Pack of Seventh Generation Diapers for $10.49
Use codes 5FORMOM and 7THGEN2 to get $8 Off
Use code TRIS1520 to get $10.00 Off
If your final order is over $49, you get FREE Shipping (sometimes it is worth it to add something to your order to get free shipping)
= Pay $32.48 shipped for 5 packs of Seventh Generation Diapers or $6.50 a pack!

Of course, if you decide not to buy Seventh Generation diapers, you can still use the other two coupon codes on another diaper purchase. They have some great sales on other brands like an 84 count box of Huggies Newborn diapers for just $19.99!

Thanks, CouponCravings!

New Consumer Testing Panel!

You all know how much I LOVE consumer testing panels! I frequently receive stuff from many of them (such as Vocalpoint, Pssst!, etc.), and in turn I simply share my opinion of their products. I even joined one from Johnson & Johnson, and they just sent me a foundation to test for a week, return with a survey, and they will send me a check for $20.00! You can't beat that, people!

I just found out about this new site on Money Saving Mom called Know and Tell. It is a survey site from Fleishman-Hillard that gives consumers the opportunity to test new products and then give their feedback. I just signed-up, so I don't know much about it yet, but I read about someone who received six Hallmark cards just for participating in one of their surveys. Hooray for FREE stuff!

New Deal at!

Right now, at, you can spend $25.00 or more on an online order, and your account will be credited with $10.00 to use on your next online order. You must shop through the "link" for this deal on the front page of the website to receive your $10.00 credit.

I started looking around a little bit on the "Sale" section, and it seems that this may be a great way to stock up on some stuff. Many of the "sale" items also have FREE shipping when you spend $25.00. Let me know what deals you come across. I saw trash bags for $3.99, dish soap for $ .99, etc.

K Mart - $1.99 Baby Pajamas; B1G1 Booster Seats

I was strolling through our Iron Mountain, MI K Mart on Saturday, and came across a small bin of infant and toddler footie pajamas marked down to $1.99! I wanted to let my local readers know...what a great deal on a baby shower gift! They are located on the bottom shelf of one of the "baby supplies" aisles. There were probably about 6-10 left, sizes 12 months-2T.

Also, K Mart has their Cosco No Back Booster Seats on sale for Buy One, Get One FREE this week! We have found that it is nice to have one or two extra booster seats around for multiple cars, carpooling, friends visiting, etc. I'm not sure what the price is on these, but it should still be an excellent deal if you are needing to buy a booster seat!

New to Walgreens Shopping?

There are some really great deals this week at Walgreens (check out my post here), and for some of you who are new to the wonderful world of "drug store shopping," it can all be a little intimidating.
I just came across a post by The Krazy Coupon Lady that might help some of you who would like to try shopping the deals at Walgreens this week. She breaks it down into 5 possible transactions for you to do...receiving Register Rewards at each one...then using those to earn more Register Rewards, etc. Make sure you read the top paragraph - you will need to purchase a "small filler item" to stick to the Walgreens policy of "one manufacturers coupon per item."

Also, you might want to read through the "Comments" section under her post. There were plenty of new Walgreens shoppers that were asking questions - the questions and answers might give clarity to some of you who still have questions about Walgreens policies, etc.

FREE Caress Body Wash Sample!

This body wash sample sounds WONDERFUL! How can something with "Whipped Souffle" in the title not be good?!

Go here to try a FREE sample of either the Caress Whipped Souffle White Peach Body Wash, the Caress Whipped Souffle Blackberry Cream Body Wash, or the Caress Velvet Bliss Body Wash.

Thanks, Mo Jo Savings!

Walgreens: Hallmark Card Deal!

Walgreens has a great Register Rewards deal this week on Hallmark Cards:

= FREE + "you earn" $1.08 after Register Rewards!

*Most Walgreens have kids' cards for just $ .49 and also a $ .99 section of cards...even if you purchased 8 - $ .99 cards, you would still only be paying $ .37 each after Register Rewards!

Thanks, Wild for Wags!
