Did you know?

August 23, 2009

Did you know that at Jewel, Meijer, and many other stores, you can take your receipt back with your coupons and they will pay you for the coupons?  So take advantage of the great deal, even if you forgot your coupons (gasp!) and you can still redeem the coupons!  The time limit at Jewel is 60 days.  Tomorrow, I’ll be bringing several receipts and getting back almost $30 from my coupons!!!


Walgreens 4-Day Deals!

August 19, 2009

Now through Saturday, if you spend $25 at Walgreens, you’ll get back $5 RR!  Here’s what I did…

7 Huggies Wipes Tubs @ $2.99 each… $20.93

1 SoftSoap Nutriserum Body Wash… $3.99

1 Clearance Chapstick to up my total… $ .30

Used Huggies Coupon in Back to School Pamphlet for $2 off EACH TUB.  Used 2 50 cent off Huggies wipes manufacturer coupons.

Total… $10.22

Got back $4 RR from Softsoap plus $5 Walgreens RR for a net of $1.22!!!

I did a few more transactions too.

If your Walgreens has the Huggies wipes at $3.59, buy 7, use the Huggies coupon in the Back to School Pamphlet in the store… you’ll pay $11.13 and get back $5.  You can also combine with the 50 cent Huggies wipes coupons that were in the paper last week!


KMart’s Double Coupon Days

August 17, 2009

I was off bright and early this morning to KMart’s Double Coupon Days!  Thanks to my parents for babysitting!  Anyhoo, since I’m at my parent’s, I can’t do a picture, but I’ll give you the idea, then send you to some websites for some great match-ups.  First, let me tell you NWI people, you have to head to Homewood or Lansing to partake.  But it’s usually worth it!

I spent $62, and saved $211.  Usually, I try to stick to freebies and super-cheapies only, but I needed diapers, so that total included 5 packs of diapers, 4 tubs of wipes, 2 $9 Star Wars toys, and LOTS and LOTS more stuff!

Highlights… after a few of my transactions, I got coupons on my receipt… one was for $5 off any $5 purchase, and one was for $3 off any $3 purchase.  I used each of those on a Star Wars Action Figure.  We wanted to get some for Trey for Christmas, only they NEVER go on sale or have a coupon, so this was the perfect opportunity to get them a little cheaper.  I also got one coupon for $5 off any health, beauty, food or consumable purchase.  I got a pack of Pull-Ups for $9.99, gave them a $2 Q that doubled to $4, then the $5 Q and spent $1.22 on that pack of Pull-Ups!

Freebies included toilet cleaner, deodorant, shampoo, wipes, tuna, pantiliners, and MUCH MORE!

Here are some sites to give you a start on your list…
