Albertsons Ad

Have you seen your Albertsons ad this week? Make sure you take a look at it before you make out your grocery list. They have some great 10 for $10 deals and there are some coupons for a free $1 item when you buy 10 $1 items. There are also several meat/poultry coupons (buy 1 get 2 free) in the ad this week. If you don't have an ad, go by the store to get one. They usually have some ads at the front of the store. But hurry...when the ads have in-store coupons, they usually disappear during the weekend!

Good Deals on Nursing Covers

Udder Covers is having a "free" nursing cover promo. Add your item to your cart, enter "backorder1" in the coupon code and it takes $32 off your order. Nursing covers are $32 so all you pay for is shipping and handling which is $8.95. (Thanks Laura for the info!)

Hooter Hiders is having a "birthday celebration". Buy 1 Hooter Hider, get 1 for $5. And shipping is free. So select 2 Hooter Hiders and then enter the coupon code HHFOR5. (I personally have a Hooter Hider and I LOVE it. It's a great size to cover everything when nursing!)

My Kroger Trip!

Well, today is the big DOUBLE coupons up to $1 at Kroger! I found a 24-hour store and discovered that they would start doubling coupons at 1:30 a.m. So, a field trip was planned to Kroger at 12:00 a.m. (this morning)!We started shopping at midnight. By 12:20 a.m. the store started getting more crowded (for 12:20 in the morning!).By 1:45 a.m. we had finally made it to the frozen/refrigerated section (which means the shopping trip was almost over!). (oops, I mean by 1:46 a.m.)
We finally are ready to get in line...only to find a long line with one checker. But I had my friend Amy with me so we had some good girly chat time!It was finally my turn to check out. As the lady was scanning all my items I looked up to see that my total was already over $200! yikes! I think my heart skipped a couple of beats! When she finished scanning everything, my total was over $280! I was hoping that I had enough coupons to bring down the total!! ($280 was not in my grocery budget!) As my coupons were scanned, the total slowly went down. My final price? $101.99! (aw, man. Those 2 cans of yummy, indulgent Pringles kept me from being under $100! Oh well. Worth it.) I saved $178.50! Woohoo! That just makes me happy! The receipt was almost as tall as me! Love it!
We finally left Kroger at 2:45.
I finally got to bed at 3:30 a.m. (oh, and was awakened twice because of my little munchkins having scary dreams). Right now, I'm a little tired but I'm still so pumped about the money I saved! (I may have a sickness.)

So, if you would like to save some big bucks, go to Kroger today! However, as busy as it was in the middle of the night, I can't imagine what the stores will be like the middle of the day!

Calling all COUPON LoVerS!!

Kroger has an incredible coupon day coming up! On Saturday, August 15th, Kroger is doubling up to $1 all manufacturer coupons!

Kroger's "Here's How It Works":
Kroger will double manufacturer's "cents off" coupons valued between $.40 and $1.00. Kroger will continue to Triple Manufacturer's "Cents Off" coupons valued up to $.39. Coupons greater than $1.00 will be redeemed at face value. Valid with Plus Card. Limit 1 like item per transaction. No cash back. Manufacturer's coupons issued in store do not apply. See store for details. Valid August 15th only.

I'm in Arlington and I assume this is for all DFW. If you are outside of DFW, check your Kroger to see if they are participating!

Good deal at Albertsons

Have you seen the Albertsons ad this week? They have a great deal on Kelloggs cereal this week. In the ad, there is an in-store coupon for $10 off the purchase of 10 Kelloggs cereals/misc items. There is also a $10 mail-in rebate for the purchase of 10 Kelloggs products. Use them both and you can get the listed Kelloggs and Sunshine products for $1 per box/package. And, I noticed today that the coupon in the ad is a store coupon...which means you can use manufacturer coupons with it. So you could possibly get your items for less than $1 per box/package. So, check out your ad!

Another cash back site

Another cash back site that I like is Fat Wallet. Fat Wallet works the same as Mr. Rebates. You sign up for an account and when you are ready to do online shopping, click on the store link through Fat Wallet. By doing that you earn a percentage back on your shopping. Like Mr. Rebates, it also takes about 90 days to process but after that you can request a check for your money. Fat Wallet also has a list of coupon codes for online stores. Again, if you are going to shop online, you need to go through a site that gives cash back! It's more savings!!

Mr. Rebates

If you do ANY online shopping, you need to make sure you go through a site that offers cashback. I've used a few sites and I have two that I like the best. Mr. Rebates is one of those sites.

Mr. Rebates - When you are ready to shop online, go to Mr. Rebates and search for the store you are wanting to shop. If they are part of the Mr. Rebates program, they will be listed with a percentage number by the store name. That percentage number is the cash back percentage you will get when you shop at that store through Mr. Rebates. Plus, Mr. Rebates always has a listing of online coupons for online stores. It's a great resource when doing online shopping.

A few things to takes a couple of days for the store to report back your purchase to Mr. Rebates. Once Mr. Rebates gets that report, your account will be credited with the correct cash back. Second, you have to link to the store through Mr. Rebates. That's how the store knows to give Mr. Rebates your purchase amount. If you forget to do that, you lose out on free money. Once your money is ready to be cashed out (usually around 90 days...that's how long it takes for the stores to report and to record any "merchandise returns" transactions), you can request a check or have them credit your paypal account. Mr. Rebates is a great way to find online coupons plus get cash back for your online shopping!

So, if you do any online shopping...especially during the holiday season, be sure to go to sign up for an account and earn cash back on your purchases! **Right now, you get $5 from Mr. Rebates just from signing up!**

Try'll like it!

That is something I tell my kids often...I thought it might be appropriate for the next few posts. :o)

There are a few websites that I use on a regular basis to earn free stuff. They are legit and easy to use. Here's the first...

SWAGBUCKS - I've mentioned this one before but it is so seriously easy, I wanted to mention again. Just sign up for an account and every time you want to do a search on the web, do it through swagbucks. You'll earn swag"bucks" on random searches. (you'll know if you earned them...a message will pop up saying "congratulations, you earned xx swagbucks") Anytime I want to do a web search, I just go to swagbucks (actually I installed the swagbucks search on my toolbar so it's there all the time) and type in my search. Sometimes I earn swagbucks, sometimes I don't. But it's easy to do and they accumulate quickly. When you are ready to redeem, just go to the swag store to redeem. You can redeem for merchandise, music downloads, gift cards, etc. I love the, Starbucks and Barnes & Noble gift cards! So try it! It's like getting free stuff for doing your web searching! (oh, and swagbucks search results are google and
