Internet Coupons and Store's Policies

Please find below a link to each store's internet coupon policy. Honestly, I love to carry these around in a folder in my car because some stores like WalMart and others like to say they don't take internet coupons.




Walgreens- offers them on their website so.. I'm guessing yes... I've never had an issue

Rite-Aid- only use the coupons they link on their website

CVS- Yes, they do not post their policy bt yes as look as it looks legit with proper codes

Also, here is some coupon lingo you may see on other sites and wonder, "what does that mean?"

BOGO = Buy One Get One
BOGOF = Buy One Get One Free
MQ = Manufacturer’s Coupon
Store Coupon = has name of store printed next to the date instead of MQ
SS= Sunday Newspaper Coupons
Stacking = Store Coupon + MQ for same item
Blinkie = Coupons that come out of little machines in the grocery isles
Peelie = Coupons attached to an item that can be peeled off for immediate use
Display = Pads of coupons in a display
Wine Tag = Coupons that have been put over the item similar to a wine bottle
Catalinas = Coupons that print out at the Cash Register

Sunday Paper

ALWAYS get a copy of the Sunday paper for valuable coupons! This may seem like an obvious gesture for money saving families however its easy to forget when you have church, activities, and family get togethers on Sundays! A Subscription is easy and cheaper as well. In our area, to just get Fri, Sat, Sun, it's only $.99 a week! That's less than the price of 2 Sunday papers a month!


Free items are always awesome, but people don't realize how easy it is to get a free smaple of their favorite items, or freebies in general. Below are some great links to websites that give away new freebies every so often, or are newsletter sign ups that also get you freebies sent right to your house!
I recommend you just Google your favorite items website and see what promotions are available for that month! Can't hurt and you can save big bucks!

Freebie websites:

Free items every 24 hours!- This website will give you a list of new freebies every 24 hours! Very easy to use and you get A LOT of opportunities for great samples

WalMart -link takes you to the free samples page

Right @ Home- Johnson and Johnson company- sign up for newsletter and they will send you random offers through email (promos on website as well) and send you items right to your home

All You Magazine

If you are looking for an awesome way to spend $2.49, then I suggest you get All You Magazine. Only at Walmart. This magazine has awesome advice about everything from how to get a stain out easily, to where to get the best deals, and its PACKED with coupons every month! Last month they had a coupon for FREE Rimmel Mascara! Every month there's over $50 of savings for things we all use everyday!

Here is the link to the magazine website: ALL YOU

How to get more coupons cheap!

Since Kmart is doubling high dollar coupons, I decided that my husband's razor cost a ton of money so to save on those, I went on EBay and purchased 20 B1G1 Schick razor coupons for $.99. Since the coupons are doubled I am getting 40 packs for free (if I can find 40! I found about 20 at my local Kmart but I can go look in another location tonight) I narrowed down my search to find sellers in my 200 mile radius so that even if I ordered on Wed, the coupons would one take a day or two at most to get to me

EBay works great for coupons when you can find what you need Sunday or Monday. And it's even better when the seller is in a near by town so shipping is overnight!

Even if there isn't a deal going on everywhere, we all have brands that we buy no matter what the price or if there is a sale or not. My weakness is Riceworks Chips. A bag every three days. So addicting!

I went on EBay, got 10 coupons B1G1 and another 10 for $1 off every bag. Therefore I am saving $1 dollar on every two bags and one of them is free!

Total price for coupons: $3.50
Total savings on 20 bags (about two months worth): $26.6 (the free bag)+ $10 off every bag purchased (free one doesn't allow another coupon at Walmart)=$36.6 in savings!

Trip to Kmart

As you all know, Kmart is doubling coupons up to a certain amount this week. My area was doubling up to $4 and tripling up to $.75

I got some amazing deals and wanted to post the pics and details of my one trip (out of five) this week.

I purchased almost $175 dollars worth of groceries for $22.98

Alpo: Buy one get one free can coupon (they are in 2 pack cases for 60 cents or 75 cents depending on your Kmart, either way because the coupon gets doubled you get the cases for free)
http://www.alpo.com (you have to play a card match game first to get coupon)

Glade Carpet freshener- $.75 coupon in 4/19 SS

Stride gum- $2 coupon off three packs in 3/22 SS

Huggies Bath item- $1 coupon found at SmartSource
