I am fortunate enough to work at a company that has a pecan tree. Apparantly all my coworkers do not realize this or do not care! I stayed late one day to pick up some pecans.Here is a before and after shot of my score! ALL FREE! Check around where you live. There might be someone that has a pecan tree that just lets them rot on the ground. Ask if you can have them free, you might be suprised. I was curious and looked at Kroger and a small bag of unshelled pecans was selling for $5.99!

Online Payments

We have our online payment system set up now for those who wish to pre-pay for the class and save $5 on the class price.

There are two options: Revolution Money Exchange and Paypal. Both work the same. If you are new to either or both sign up is simple and quick but they will send you and email that you have to verify and that could take up to 48 hours (usually quicker). So keep this in mind when paying online and don't wait until the last day to pay.

Subscribing to this blog

I wanted to take a minute and thank all of those who have subscribed to the Katy Couponers Blog. This blog was set up in an effort to teach more people in the community about coupon usage. With the current economical situation more and more people are turning to coupons to help make ends meet.

In the very near future we will be announcing upcoming coupon classes that will primarily be given in the Katy area. We will no longer be able to do the classes for free as we are being charged for facility rental. But along with the class fee we will be handing out more material for you, coupons, and continued e-mail support.

If you are subscribed, please make sure you verify the subscription once you get the email.

Right now there is an AWESOME deal at Randalls! Buy 3 Frosted Mini Wheats in one transaction: Buy 3 Blueberry Muffin, Strawberry Delight, Cinnamon Streusel, or Maple and Brown Sugar Frosted Mini Wheats and get $3 oynso! Mini Wheats are on sale until 10-21-08 for $2.22. The store I went to today had $1 peelies on the boxes, so after the first transaction: $2.22 * 3 - 3(peelies) -3 catalina = .66 for 3 boxes of frosted mini wheats. *Actually, the oynso catalina has been taking off tax, so it is costing me .41 for 3 boxes of CEREAL!
Not only am I getting a great deal on cereal, but I have already earned a free t-shirt and have most of the qualifiers for a free movie, another free t-shirt, and a free Kung Fu Panda blanket. Not only that, but the Blueberry Mini Wheats has a try me free, so for the cost of a stamp I will get back $2.22.
So the final tally:
$4.51 - 2.22 rebate + .42 stamp = $2.71 for 33 boxes of cereal, 1 free box, and 1 free tshirt or .08 per box
Basically, I got 33 boxes of cereal for .50 more than most people pay for ONE box!!!!!!! (This deal was done over the course of a week, at about 4 different stores, so I PROMISE I did not wipe out any one store!)
ETA: I got 9 more boxes yesterday for a final tally of 42 boxes and I earned my free Kung Fu Panda blanket, woo hoo!
