If you where able to pick up the CVS Store Coupons book
in it there is a coupon for $1/1 Oxy but in small writing it also say Softlips.

That makes them FREE I was able to pick up four. This is my favorite chapstick so I am wishing I picked up more coupon books:)

Money Maker at Meijer UPDATE!!

You have to buy 2 salads and one meat for the Catalina to print

OK here is the deal. At the meat department pick up the, "Healthy living naturally " book for May/June. Inside there is a coupon for $1.50 off 2 Dole Blend salads. Right now the Dole salad is on sale for .75 each. Buy 2 salads and a half pound of Naturewell hamburger (at the meat department must be right meat to get Catalina's). The hamburger is normally 3.99 a lb, but it is on sale for 2.19 lb. and when you check out you will receive a 3.00 Catalina. You can "roll" these Catalinas like I did, but you must do them in individual orders to get the Catalinas. This is a money maker if you can find the book with the coupon at your store, but even if you can't find the coupon it is still free. Thanks to my Mom Barb for sharing this deal with us.

I am so exited about this deal I did 8 times and I will go back tonight after work to get more. It is not often you can get meat for free let alone make money towards other purchases I am soooooo exited about this deal!!!!!!!!!!!!

UPDATE: This deal just got a little sweeter, here is a link to Naturewell web site. Create a account and tell them your story and you will be able to print a $.50/1 coupon. Love it !!thanks Tracy for the tip

Note catalina deal does not expire till 7/12 (the sales will but still is a good deal with coupons)

I just earned a $20 gift card to Target

I have been using Swagbucks for a little over three months and I now have 220 swag bucks which is the amount you need to receive a $20 Target gift card. (there are other items that cost less but this was my goal)

If you are not familiar with Swagbucks it is a search engine, just like Google. ( it is powered by Google and Ask). I have saved it as my homepage but you don't have too, and every time I search I do it through Swagbucks instead of Google... When you search you randomly get swag bucks that can be redeemed for gift cards, prizes, etc. You can earn on average enough Swag Buck to receive a $5 gift card (amzon.com..) a month or wait like me for a bigger gift card. Every bit counts and getting paid to do something you already do is great!!

If you would like to sign up for Swagbucks please use this link HERE it will show I referred you. You can also use the link at the top of my post. Thanks

Thanks to MoneySavingMethods who turned me onto this site, you can find a link to her blog to the right under blogs I love.

Thanks Deal Seeking Mom & my mom Barb for the tip! If you have already purchased the sunglasses (buy 2 get the $10 ECB) then this deal will not work, I also don't think you can get a raincheck since this is not advertised in flyer.

From a Reader

I love when readers send me deals and this is one I have never herd of.

At speedway they have a policy that there cigarette cartons (select types) are always in stock or they give you a $10 gift card. (Free gas)

My reader also told me that in South Lyon (9 mile and pontiac trl) they are out of Newport 100's in a box. So all you have to do is walk in and ask for them. Now they could get stock at anytime so if you want to take advantage of this deal and they have them just say you left your card at home or something:) I got the e-mail at 1:33am this morning so this is pretty new. I don't smoke myself but if I lived closer I would give it a try, who could not use free gas.

(I called my Speedway and they did confirm this is their policy)
They also gave me a few other brands that work
Marlboro Reds, Lights some Camells, Pall Mall... That is all they would say on the phone

Thanks Andy for the tip

One of my Favorites

I wanted to introduce you to one of my favorite blogs

This blog is great for all couponers, it answers questions we all have and is very informative and encouraging. Laura the woman in charge of Sharpen Your Scissors is the one who introduced me to couponing. She answers a lot of reader e-mails and shares her knowledge on the ins and outs of couponing. She is also a inspiration on how couponing can help others and how you can make a difference with your efforts.

You can also find this blog on the right hand side of my post under "blogs I love"

Tip Time

Today's tip is on how to get the most out of your Catalina coupons. These are the coupons that print next to your receipt looks like above.
Types of Catalina

Manufactures or Store coupons for specific items like $.50/1 of Coke two liter
(check fine print to see if it say "do not double" if it is a store coupon you can stack with a Manf and if it is a Manf coupon you can stack with a Store one)

Manufactures coupon for money of any item like $2 of your next purchase.
(you normally get these for buying specific items check out this deal for example)

Store coupons for discounts like $8 off a $100 purchase

Ads for upcoming deals or promotions. They will sometimes tell you about a Catalina deal coming up in the future so always good to read

Free items, I have received Catalina for free Waffles and Ketchup

When using the $2 of your next order coupon you have to make sure not to have more coupons then items. So if you have 5 items with 5 Manf coupons but your final order still comes to $2 you can't try and use the $2 of your purchase since you already have a Manf coupon for 5 items.
(you could grab a $.50 candy bar then use the $2 coupon since you now have 6 items and the extra $1.50 will go towards your balance)

Meijer will take Catalina's from their competitors so Kroger, Walgreen's...
(this includes Walgreen's RR's though I would go through self check out so they do not give you a hard time. I tested this out three times this week and had no problems I even called Meijer and they confirmed they do take other store Catalina's)

Finds from a Reader

I can always use help finding the best deals and today I got a e-mail from a reader with a couple good deals at Meijer.

Barilla Piccolini pasta at $.79
Go here and enter contest and summit a photo and you will get a .75 cent off coupon making it .04 cents a box can print twice if you hit the back arrow a few times.
(I submitted a photo of us eating, it will need to have Barilla in it to win but not to get coupon)

Coffee-mate creamer is 1.50 each.
Use $1/1 Here
Final Price $.50 (you can also take to Kroger in Howell and pay only $.29 since they will double to $2)

Thanks to Kim for these great finds.

Great Bank Deal

Every once in a while a great deal will come along that has nothing to do with Coupons but is so good I feel I need to share. This is clearly one of them. Chase bank is offering $100 to set up a checking account and $100 is $100.

$100 Account Chase Checking

Open New Checking Account
$100 Minimum Opening Deposit
Direct Deposit OR 5 Debit Card Transactions Required
Expires June 23rd
Click here for all the details and to sign up.
(you can do on line or in a branch which is my preferred method click on the send me a coupon link and they will sent you a e-mail you can take into the branch)

The reason this deal is so good is if you don't have direct deposit like me all you have to do is use the debit card 5 times easy:) You must keep the account open for 6 months to keep the $100.00.

Thanks to Moneysavingmethods for this post you can check out her blog for other good tips on bank offers...


Slow Coupon Week

This week was not a big coupon week which can be normal. Coupon deals go up and down so don't worry if there is a slow week. On slower weeks I just try and get the most out of the deals that are out there, so I really went after the Ecotrin deal at Walgreen's and stocked up on the free Campbell's Soup at CVS to donate.

I now have 12 Ecotrin paid $1.44 got $24 in RR's
And I have 16 cans of Soup for FREE that will make a nice donation.

Couple Updates

I have added a new feature that I hope everyone will find helpful. You will find at the top left of the blog a title for Resource Center if you click on this it will take you to a post that has the links for
Target coupons
Meijer coupons......

Also it will give you the links to some of the on-line tools I use to make money or do rebates. Please let me know what you think or if you have a idea of something that I should add to the Resource Center.

I will be posting Meijer and Kroger tomorrow I do not see anything great so I will make my trips before I post.
