Pharmacy Coupons

The flu has been to our house this week and we got to spend some money at the CVS pharmacy. Before I went to pick up my prescriptions, I did an online search for pharmacy coupons. And I found one! It was a coupon for a $25 gift card on a transferred prescription at CVS. I had 3 prescriptions and all of them were new but I thought I would take the coupon and try it. The pharmacy tech took the coupon and I received a $25 gift card. (The $25 doesn't even begin to compare on how much I spent on the prescriptions but at least it was something).

CVS advertises that they will accept all competitor pharmacy coupons. (Competitor means that there is a brick & mortar store nearby. They usually don't accept coupons from online companies or retailers that do not have any stores in the area). So if you see pharmacy coupons in the paper, ads, etc., clip them and hold on to them. You never know when you might need a prescription filled. And if you don't get your prescriptions at CVS, find out if and what coupons your pharmacy will accept.

Who doesn't just LOVE Chick-fil-A?!?!!

Chick-fil-A is such a great company...great food, great employees and great customer service! I love that they always say "my pleasure" and make you feel that they truly want to please you as a customer!

A few of things I wanted to mention:

1) Chick-fil-A coupons: Chick-fil-A coupons will come in the mail, you can get them from their "cow" calendars and sometimes you can sign up online to get coupons. Even though all coupons have an expiration date, Chick-fil-A will always take the coupon...even if it is expired. So, if you missed using the coupon prior to the expiration date, don't throw it away! You can still use it. (aahhh, this is why I love Chick-fil-A!!)

2) They give away food! On Thursdays, 9/17 and 9/24, Chick-fil-A is giving away Chicken Sandwiches at the Dallas/Ft. Worth area locations.
* Thursday, 9/17 from 6 -7 p.m. only: FREE Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich with Cheese
* Thursday, 9/24 from 6-7 p.m. only: FREE Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich on a Wheat Bun
(one offer per person per visit)

3) Join the Chicken Wave and get a coupon for a free Coke Zero (and of course, they will let you choose a different drink choice if you're not a fan of Coke Zero)

If you shop at Kroger...

make sure you look at the bottom of your receipt! During the month of September, Kroger is keeping track of your purchases. When you spend the specified $$ amount on your receipt (there is not a set $$ amount - it is personalized for each Kroger customer), you will get 10% off one grocery purchase between October 5-24. So if you shop at Kroger, this is a great way to get more savings!

Swagbucks update

If you do Swagbucks, remember that during the month of September, Swagbucks is giving away a free "swag code" each day. I have the Swagbucks toolbar (where I can conveniently do all my searches) and on the toolbar is a box where I receive messages from Swagbucks. Every day in September, Swagbucks is sending out a swagcode (in the message box) to redeem for (at least) one swagbuck. Just copy the code (from your message area on the toolbar), go to the Swagbucks home page, and on the right hand side of the page paste your swag code in the "enter a swag code" box. This is an easy way to earn some extra Swagbucks.

Want more info on Swagbucks? Go to my previous post here.
