Kroger Procter and Gamble Potential Scenarios

If you have not done the Olay Regenerist rebate I posted about here and you need diapers, here is a scenario for that:

1 Pampers diapers $9.77
2 Olay Regenerist $5.60 x 2 = 11.20
1 Tide Stain Release $5
Total : $26.17
- $2 Pamper coupon 12-27 insert
- $6 2 $3 Olay Regenerist coupon Nov P&G insert
-$3 Tide coupon 12-27 insert
-$5 instantly
-$1 Pampers loadable at P&G* (*not sure if the coupon can be combined with paper coupon?)
-$1 Tide loadable at P&G* (*not sure if the coupon can be combined with paper coupon?)
= 8.17 or 10.17
Then you can mail in your receipt for the $15 Olay rebate for a profit ~ $5 and free diapers!

An alternative with the Olay Regenerist and Pampers
2 Pampers diapers $9.77 each = 19.54
2 Olay Regenerist $5.60 x 2 = $11.20
Total: $30.74
-$4 2 x $2 Pamper coupon 12-27 insert
-$6 2 $ 3 Olay Regenerist coupon Nov P&G insert
-$5 instantly
-2 $1 Pampers loadable at P&G*(*not sure if coupon can be combined and you wil have to purchase two types of Pampers based on loadables)
=$13.74 or $15.74
Then mail in for $15 Olay rebate for a max cost of ~$1 for 2 packs of diapers.

If you don't need diapers, but want a money maker with Olay and score some Tide in the process:
2 Olay Regenerist $5.60 x 2 = $11.20
3 Tide Stain Release $15
Total: $ 26.20
-$6 2 $3 Olay Regenerist coupon Nov P&G insert
-$9 3 $3 Tide stain release coupon 12-27 insert
-$1 Tide loadable at P&G* (*not sure if the coupon can be combined with paper coupon?)
-$5 instantly
= $5.20 or 6.20 oop and mail in for $15 Olay rebate for a profit of ~$8

*I have included the Procter and Gamble loadables but I am not sure if these can be used with paper coupons. I thought it said no at one time on their site, but I read their FAQ and terms and conditions, and do not see that regulation now. Also, keep in mind, the P&G loadables do expire December 31st.

P&G deal at Kroger - FREE IVORY!

Kroger is having a Procter and Gamble promotion. Spend $25 in a transaction on partcipation Procter and Gamble items and save $5 instantly.
The GREAT deal in all this is Ivory soap and bodywash. They are each on sale for $1 right now. Pair that with the wonderful $1 off any coupon we just got this past Sunday and that is FREE Ivory and helps get to the $25 without any out of pocket.
Here is what my transaction looked like:
10 Ivory bar soap $10 - 10 $1 insert 12-27 P&G = FREE
11 Ivory body wash $11 - 11 $1 insert 12-27 P&G = FREE
1 Tide stain release $5 - $3 insert 12-27 P&G = $2
-$5 instant savings
2 Sara Lee bread $2 each - 1/2 tearpad(attached to bread) = $3
3 Granny Smith apples $1
Tax: -.19
Cost oop: $.81

I know many of my readers are not going to have this many Ivory coupons, so I collected a few prices and will post a separate post on some ways to get some potential FREE diapers or some good deals.

Cellfire will reset tommorrow - December 29

If you have not loaded all your cellfire coupons, today is the LAST day for this cycle. Tommorrow will have all new coupons to load. Don't forget to check shortcuts, pgesaver,, Upromise and kroger for new loadables while you are at it.

Cheerios $1 coupons and chance at a free box

My husband LOVES plain Cheerios and I have to say that is one cereal that is hard to get free. Well, right now, if you sign up on the Cheerios website, they will email you a link to a $1 printable coupon each week for 4 weeks. Also, by enrolling, you have a chance to win one of 53,600 boxes that will given away. (You will be notified by mail if you have won a free box)

Fine print for Sweepstakes: Sweepstakes entry period is Dec 28, 2009 through Dec 31, 2010. Limit one entry per person per day. Open only to US residents 18 years or older. Non winners from daily entries will be entered in subsuquent days drawings.

Unlike my husband, I prefer Honey Nut Cheerios. If you are a fan of Honey Nut Cheerios, go here to print $2 worth of coupons.

Free Leappad book arrived!

Well, this was a super easy freebie to do and it came in just 18 days. I blogged about this free board book here. Well, it also came with a $5 coupon for Leapfrog Tag Junior. This offer is still available, so if you have not done it yet, you should, it is a really cute book. Just go here and sign up for the learning path, it is free and takes very little time.

My daughter would not let it go long enough for the picture, so she is IN the picture.

Houston Chronicle Paper 12-27 Extra coupons

This weeks paper only has one coupon insert, the Proctor and Gamble. However, I found these few extra coupons in the paper. The Kroger supplement has several manufacturer coupons as well as a prescription transfer coupon for $20 gift card.
Also, there was a supplement with free bowling coupons! These bowling coupons are good for one free game for up 6 people(shoe rental not included)

Randalls run Dec 26

I was putting together my end of year rebates to see what I still need to finalize any that expire Thursday. I came across a $20 Nabisco rebate I started on in September, but never quite finished. It requires the purchase of 10 Nabisco crackers, 5 Kool-aid Jammers or Capri Sun and 5 Easy Mac cups. Well, all I seem to lack was 2 Easy Mac cups so I headed to Randalls to get a few other items I knew were going to be cheap.
Here is what I did:
Please keep in mind my Randalls doubles on like up to .50 and triples on like up to .39.

8 Progresso soup $1.11 each - 4 $1.50/2 Randalls pharmacy coupon - 4 .50/2 insert 12-6SS= 0.38
2 Kraft easy mac $1 each = $2
1 Mom trial size formula $2.49 - free with card = FREE
4 Kleenex * .51 each (they ring up this price after $2/4 pharmacy coupon) - .50/3 insert 12-6SS = $1.04
1 Simply Orange $1 - .50 tearpad(got in a trade) = FREE
1 Nesquik $1 - .40 tearpad(found at a gas station) = .20
2 Dial Complete soap $2.19 each - 2 $1 Randalls pharmacy coupon - 2 .50 booklet coupon(found at Kroger) = 0.88
1 Kotex pantiliner .99 - $1 cellfire = -.01
-2 $1 oynso from prior Kleenex purchases
Tax: .08
Cost oop: $2.57
and earned $1 for buying 4 Kleenex and $1.50 for buying 2 Dial Complete
I will use this receipt for the $20 Nabisco rebate.

Olay Quench Lotion rebate

Olay has a rebate out right now for your money back on Olay Quench lotion, any size excluding trial size. You have to purchase by January 29th, but if you buy before December 31st, you can make it a small money maker deal. The last P&G insert(prior to today's) has a coupon for free Olay Quench lotion when you buy ANY Olay body wash. You can buy anywhere, but I have only seen the really large bottles of lotion at Walgreens and Target.
I was at Target picking up a few boxes of Swiss Miss cocoa for my sister so I went ahead and did the following:
2 Olay Quench lotion $8.24 each = $16.48
2 Olay body wash $5.84 each = $11.68
- 2 bogo coupons $16.48
= $11.68 + tax = $12.53

I will now mail in for the rebate(limit 2 per household/address) and receive a check for $16.48 which more than pays for the lotion, the bodywash and the stamp to mail.
Please keep in mind, if you plan on doing two rebates, they must be mailed together.
Also, the bogo coupon does beep and is hard to use, so be prepared to have a manager intervene.

Also, if you want to turn this into a slightly bigger profit, there is a $1 off Olay Body Wash coupon in today's paper that you might be able to use as well.

Olay Regenerist Rebate and CVS deal

Olay has a $15 rebate form out for Olay Regenerist facial moisturizers, treatments and/or cleaners when you buy 2. You need to purchase by Jan. 24th. Right now, CVS has the daily facial cleaner and the cleaning cloths on sale for $6.99. We also have $3 coupons from the last P&G insert(prior to todays- these expire end of December)

Here is my breakdown:
2 Olay Regenerist $6.99 each - $3 = $7.98
Tax: .58
Cost oop: $8.56
And will mail in receipt for $15 rebate.
Profit of $6 after cost of stamp

Randalls Dec 22 shopping trip

I really wanted to get the free muffins today at Randalls, and since I found out the Kleenex were a good money maker, I decided to get some much needed cheese with the overage. Well, the cheese did not ring up as expected, so I got a slightly better deal than I anticipated. Here is my transaction:
1 Mom trial size formula $2.49 - FREE with card = FREE
4 Glade tin can candle holders $2.49 each - $1.50 coupons inside package = $3.96

5 Kraft cheese* $2.49 each - .70 homemailer = $11.75
Tax : .08
Cost oop: $7.87
Earned 2 $1 oynso for the Kleenex
*The Kraft cheese was tagged on the shelf for $2.49 but save $5 if you buy 5. The $5 did not come off, so the service desk gave me the $5 and another $2.49 for the Price Right Guarantee, so got a refund of $7.49, so overall cost was -$1.62

Walgreens run 12-21

Seemed like a pretty slow week at Walgreens, but I had some Register Rewards to roll. This is where the importance of asking for rainchecks come in handy! A couple weeks ago, the Triaminic strips were on sale for $5 with a $5 register reward when you bought two. Not only that, but $3 coupons had just come out and if you have the Healthy Savings booklet, that took off another $2. Combining all those coupons made them FREE and then they were giving out a $5 RR on top of that. I blogged about this here deal originally here.

Naturally, the stores ran out before the end of the week due to the couponers taking advantage of this wonderful sale. Now, normally, for weekly deals at Walgreens, rain checks would not do you any good because they cannot write them for the RR value.
BUT, because this was a monthly promotion, rain checks could be written for the sale price and if you happened to get one of these, works out perfect to get the item on a week they are NOT on sale, and thus NO competition!
I had two of these rainchecks, so a GREAT way to roll some $2 RR I needed to get used.
I did two transactions as follows:
2 Triaminic $5 each with raincheck - 2 $2 insert - $4 Healthy savings booklet = $2
1 Plastic straws .99 -.60 in ad coupon = .39
-2 RR
Cost oop : .39
Earned $5 in RR

2 Triaminic $5 each with r/c - $3 insert - $2 insert - $4 Healthy savings booklet = $ 1
2 St Ives body wash $3.39 each - $3.80 in ad coupon - 2 $1 insert = .98
1 Plastic straws .99 - .60 in ad coupon =.39
-2 RR
Cost oop: .37

So overall $5.24 MM
*Make sure you ask for rainchecks on monthly money makers, they really are a great way to roll register rewards during slow weeks!
Earned $ 5 in RR

Free Pint International Delight Coffee Creamer

International Delight is at it again. They are giving away 100,000 pints of their creamer to their fans on facebook. Go to their facebook page and fill out the registration for a home mailed coupon for a free pint!
Limit one per person, so if your spouse is a fan, get more than one :)
Thanks freebies4mom for the headsup!

Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure - Under $5

If this movie is on your shopping list and you have not gotten it yet, this is the week to do so. The Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack is on sale at Target for $19.99. If you go to the Target site, you can print a $5 off coupon for any Blu-Ray movie above $5. Combine that with the $10 printable available to Disney Rewards Members (log into your account and type in the code : GIFT, make sure you pick the correct coupon based on whether you live in US or Canada).
This will make the movie just $4.99!

While you are logged into your Rewards account, today's five point bonus code is : SNOWMAN

Thanks pooh5497

CVS Week of December 20

I have to admit I have not been shopping the CVS deals since they are usually sold out. I went out today though because I had a few ECBs expiring. Imagine my suprise when I show up and the store is actually stocked! I wasn't familiar with this particular CVS and so I ended up spending a little more(this store does not adjust down ECBS).

I did two transactions to lessen my OOP expense.

Trans #1:
1 Nivea body wash $5.99 - $2 IP = 3.99
1 Complete contact solution $9.99 - $1 insert 10-25RP = 8.99
1 CVS tissue .50
Used $13 in ECBS and paid
.52 OOP

Earned $5 ecb for Nivea and $9.99 for Complete

Trans #2:
2 Glade candle holders $3 each - $1.50 package coupons(from prior purchase) = $3
2 Glade refills $3 each - bogo blinkie coupon = FREE
2 Revlon lipsticks $6.99 each - $2 insert 12-13SS (these beep) = $9.98
1 Listerine 500 ml $ 3.99 - $1 insert 12-6RP = $2.99
Paid with $5 and $9.99 from Trans #1
and paid $1.04 oop

Earned $4 for Glade, $3 for Listerine and $10 for Revlon

So overall
$13.52 + 1.04 - 4 - 3 - 10 = Profit $2.44

Walgreens run week of Dec 20

Stopped into Walgreens to roll some RR. Did two transactions, here is my breakdown

Trans #1:
4 Oral-B stages toothbrush $2.50 each - $1/2 insert - $4 coloring book coupon = $4
1 Dulcolax $6.99 - $3 hangtag = $3.99
2 Walgreens plastic straws .99 each - 1.20 in ad coupon = $.78
-$7 in RR and paid $1.77 oop

Earned $5 from Oral B and $4 from Dulcolax
There is also a Dulcolax rebate for $5, but I have already done this rebate

Trans #2:
2 Theraflu $5 each - $3/2 insert 10-18SS - $4 Healthy Savings booklet = $3
1 Walgreens plastic straws .99 each - .60 in ad coupon = .39
-$2 in RR and paid $1.39 oop
Earned $3 from Theraflu

So total: $8.77 + $3.39 - $9 - $3 = Cost $0.16

Randalls Pharmacy Booklet

Here is a picture of the Randalls Pharmacy booklet I found that has a $2/4 coupon for Kleenex in it. Really good deal when combined with sale and catalina of $1 oynso wyb 4 Kleenex.

This booklet also has a $1.50/2 Progresso coupon that would go great for anyone with loadables still.

A Slice of Life - My Family Portrait

My sister has been pestering me for a long time to get a family picture taken for my living room. Sadly, I didn't have one with my youngest daughter Sara (now 3) in the picture, I know BAD MOMMY. Luckily, I met a WONDERFUL photographer who also happens to be a couponer and blogger, Kim. She got started couponing in February, which gave me a chance to trade goods from my stockpile for a photo session and prints. She took so many GREAT pictures of me and my family, I am having a really difficult time deciding which ones to purchase. The family picture shown above is one that my whole family has certainly enjoyed. My MIL actually said this is the first picture she has seen my youngest smile in, she is such a serious little girl.

If you live in/around the Houston area, you might want to check out Kim's photography site and perhaps schedule an appointment. I know my kids are hard to photograph, yet Kim really seemed to capture some wonderful shots. Here are two examples of my kids shots:
Disclaimer: The opinions about Kim's photography are my own and I am not getting reimbursed in any way for this post, nor has it been edited or reviewed by Kim or A Slice of Life Creative Photography.

Don't WASTE your money buying papers today 12-20 NO COUPONS

NO coupons this weekend. Sorry for the delay in posting, been catching up.

IF you do get home delivery, there is a decent coupon for Ocean Spray Craisins in the Parade section, so don't throw it in your recycle bin until you snag it.

Saturday, December 19, 2009


I don't remember the day the Target coupon became available, but it was BEFORE their new coupon printing system where you can only print 2 coupons per computer. Anyway, Target had a $1 off any Swiss Miss 10 count cocoa coupon available. I printed and saved that coupon and I am soooooooo glad I did. Target has the Swiss Miss on rollback for $.97 and with the printable Target coupon it makes is FREE!!!!!!!

Randalls - Cereal and JEANS??????

I went to Randalls yesterday to pick up a few more boxes of Corn Flakes before the coupons expire on the 20th and I was greated with boxes of Kelloggs Special K with PEELIES!!!! Not only that, but each box was specially marked with a Jeans promotion: Get a $10 voucher toward the purchase of a new pair of jeans when you submit 5 Special K Tokens and mail in form found inside the box. I was so excited about this, I went to two stores to purchase enough for each of the 4 households I shop for. I also now have two receipts to send in for the $10 Kelloggs Calendar rebate I have been mentioning(I know there are still traders on HCW with these forms)
Here is my breakdown:

Total oop: $10.17
I earned a $1 oynso for the Kleenex, will mail in the Kelloggs calendar rebate(remember it is limit 8 per household) and earned enough for two more $10 jean vouchers(one for mom and one for my other sister!)

So for $22.06 oop, I got back $1 oynso, will get $20 rebate and 4 $10 Jean vouchers

Hodge Podge of deals I know about...........

I admit I have not had a HUGE amount of time this week to shop. There are many Christmas functions for work that have been eating up my lunch hours, so I have been limited. The good thing is, there really are not a great amount of deals this week.

If you have more time than I do, perhaps you can find some of these and take advantage of them:

I did take the time to order these really cute ruby red slippers, I mean Crocs for my oldest

Crocs is having a 30% off sale on all outlet shoes. In addition to this sale, there are several codes out that apparantly can be stacked together.
You can use DEALMOM20 to get 20% off
MYCOUP20 for another 20% off
C6VMRVKY3ISA for another 10% off

If you pick ground shipping, it is free. I got this pair of Crocs for Zoey for only $6.04! I also wanted to get another pair of Juneau Crocs, but they didn't have any more brown in my size :(

Thanks Mercedes for the heads up


Lubriderm is 20% which should make the 6 oz $3.03 each.(my store this size was NOT on sale)
If you still have $2 coupons from 10-11 RP
Also, there is a $1 Lubriderm Wags coupon in the Diabetes booklet found in the pharmacy
This would make them .03 each if you can find them and they are on sale at your store

Comtrex are $5.99
Use the $3 coupon from 11-1SS. Also there is a $3 coupon in December Wags coupon booklet. Makes it free with .01 overage(my store the Wags coupon came up not on file)

Puffs are .89 with in ad coupon. If you got the $1 home mailer(not sure where you had to sign up for this, but I got it) you can get one FREE

John Frieda Root Awakening $5.99. Print the $2 and $5/2 IP .
There is a coupon page handout you might be able to find at your Walgreens that has a $3 coupon. This will make it just .99 or .98/2 respectively.

Huggies are $8.99 and earn $2 RR
Use $1.50 from 11-15 SS. Combine with the $1 off coloring book coupon
Makes them $4.49 after RR and send in for .75 caregiver rebate

Today and tommorrow are friends and family day. If you become a fan of Walgreens on facebook, you can print a 15% coupon. Not sure how this will alter the math of the deals.(I will try to test and report back)

If you can combine these deals in one transaction, you should be right about at $25 and can earn the $5 RR for purchasing $25 worth

*By my stores pricing and calculations:
Lubriderm $3.99 -$3
Comtrex $5.99 - $6
Puffs $.89*(not sure pre-ad coupon price) - .89
John Frieda $5.99 - $5
Huggies $8.99 -$2.50
Price before any coupons $25.85
Potential friends and family savings -$3.88
Price after coupons $8.46($4.58 with friends and family), earn $7 in RR and you can still get .75 from Caregiver


Disney's Blu-Ray/DVD combo of the movie GForce is on sale for $22.99(my store was out so I got a raincheck)
Print the $10 coupon from Disney here
Print the $5 off any Blu-Ray over $5 from the Target website
Pay $ 7.99 to get the movie on Blu-Ray and DVD!

I will add to this post as I get the data together(I have it written all over the place, lol)

Got my free cereal at Randalls- and will make $ after rebate

Sorry that all my posts lately are about Randalls, but most other stores are slow and I have not been able to find the deals at the few I have gone by. I will post what those deals are too in case you have better luck than I have had, but first, let me give you the run down of my Randalls run.
Went to get the Kelloggs cornflakes for .99(wyb at least 3) and wanted to see if I could get a few other items to get the daily freebie(Hillshire Smokies) when you spend $20*
Here is what I got:
10 Kelloggs Corn Flakes $1.09*each - $1 insert 11-08 RP = .90
1 Betty Crocker Warm Delights $1.99 - .50 Cellfire - .50 Shortcuts - .50 IP = -.01
2 Betty Crocker cake mix .99 each - 2 $1/2 Cellfire = -.02
1 Betty Crocker cookie mix $1.69 -.40 Shortcuts - .40 IP = .49
1 Betty Crocker frosting $1.69 - .50 Cellfire - $1 wyb frosting and cookie mix Cellfire - .50 IP = -.81
1 All 2x $3.99 - $1 in ad coupon - $2 insert 12-6 RP = $.99
1 Freshpet dog food $1.99 - $2.49 free insert 9-13SS = -.50
1 Morningstar Farm frozen $1.99 - $2 tearpad = -.01
1 Hillshire Farm Smokies $3.50 - free in ad coupon = FREE
1 Safeway Wheat bread $1.39
1 MoM Infant Formula sampler (1 free with card per customer)
-$1 catalina (earned from prior Kleenex purchase)
Tax = -.16
Cost oop: $1.26
*The Kellogg's Corn Flakes rang up $1.09 instead of the advertised .99, so they gave me back $1.99 in cash(price right guarantee gave me one free, and difference on the other 9)

I will also mail in my receipt for the $10 Kellogg's Calendar rebate I have discussed previously(you might be able to find these rebates in trade on HCW still)
*For the minimum purchase of $20 requirement, your total only has to be $20 BEFORE they scan your Randalls card. Print the Safeway official statements regarding this policy here.

Thanks Saishap for the heads up on the Safeway guidelines.

P&G news and offer

Beginning December 31, 2009, P&GeSAVER coupons can no longer be downloaded to your Kroger Shopper's Card.

Please redeem all P&GeSAVER coupons you now have on your Kroger Shopper's Card by December 31, 2009.

We value your loyalty to P&GeSAVER and are very sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

*This is a tidbit of a email I received today in my inbox. For those that might be confused, P&G offered loadables you could add to your Kroger card, like Cellfire and Shortcuts. Apparantly they will be discontinuing this come the first of the year.

Now, if you have been collecting coupons, even for a short time, you know that sometimes we get some pretty good P&G coupons in the inserts, but for the most part, we rely on homemailers to get the really HOT P&G value coupons. That is where subscribing to the free newsletter by Home Made Simple comes into play. They are well known for offering periodical coupon booklets that have some pretty good coupons. These coupons usually focus on more of the home coupons such as Febreze, Cascade, Mr Clean etc. If you are not already subscribed, you can sign up by just clicking on the picture below.

Cellfire has reloaded 12-15-2009

New 2 week period for Cellfire and they decided to mix it up a bit. You can still get your Betty Crocker, Pillsbury and Huggies coupons you have come to expect, but they have added some NEW offers we have not seen before. Biore, John Frieda and Nestle to name a few.
Check them out, you have two weeks to load the new Cellfire coupons, but a month to use them.

If you are just starting out, I would suggest loading up all the Cellfire coupons. BE CAREFUL when loading. You can only load cellfire to one card or the other at a time. EX: if you load the Betty Crocker potatoes to your Safeway card first, it will not be available to load to Kroger UNTIL you use it at Safeway.

I would love to hear comments from my readers on the deals they have been finding combining the loadables at Safeway(Randalls, Tom Thumb)

Books A Million Book deals- Skippy Jon Jones

Anyone who knows me and my family knows we have a passion for books! Even better, I love deals on books. My husband and I have tried to instill the importance of reading to our children and we read to them nightly.

Well, for my little ones birthday, her aunt and uncle bought her the original SkippyjonJones book that included a cd of the author reading the book. I would have to say, HANDS DOWN, this has been the best gift she has received. The book is hilarious and to be able to hear the author reading it really is a treat. Well, since then, I have been obsessed with getting the rest of the SkippyjonJones books. This is where the deal comes in.....

Books a Million is having a sale on quite a selection of kids books. Several books are under $2, including a few SkippyJon books and if you use the code BKLVFREE at checkout, you can get FREE shipping! If you have books on your Christmas list, you might want to take a peek at the selection.

Randalls lunch run/ loadables fun

Well, I planned on just running for a price check run, but since I was there, I went ahead and picked up the deals. I did goof and forgot to give one coupon and forgot an item, but I still think I did ok.
Please recall, my Safeway will double up to .50 and triple up to .39 one like coupon.
To understand how loadables work at my Safeway and Kroger stores, please refer to my google doc.
Here is what I got:
1 Betty Crocker potatoes $1.69 - .40 Cellfire - 2 .40 Shortcuts (forget to give .40 IP) = .49
1 Chex Mix $2.79 - 2 .50 Cellfire - 2 .50 Shortcuts - .50 IP = -.21
2 Progresso soup $1.67 each - 2 .50/2 Cellfire - 2 .50/2 Shortcuts - .50/2 insert 12-6SS = .34
3 Multi bran chex $1.99 each(wyb 3) - 2 $1/2 Cellfire - $2 $1/2 Shortcuts - $3/3 peelie = -1.03
2 Green Giant frozen veggies $1.29 each - 2 .50/2 Cellfire - 2 .50/2 Shortcuts - .50/2 IP = -.42
1 Betty Crocker cake mix $1.25 - in ad coupon for free wyb $20 in groceries(today only!)= $0
1 Betty Crocker frosting $1.69 - .50 Shortcuts - .50 Shortcuts(wyb frosting & cake mix) - .50 IP = -.31
1 Freshpet dog food $1.99 - $2.49 free insert 9-13SS= - .50
4 Kleenex tissue $.99 each - $2 in ad coupon wyb 4 - 4 .55/1 tearpad = -.24
2 Pillsbury* Christmas cookies $2.49 each - $1.20 in ad coupon to make them $1.99 each - 2 $1/2 Cellfire - $1/2 Shortcuts - 2 .75/2 Shortcuts for Holiday cookies - $1/2 IP = -$1.72
1 California Pizza Kitchen pizza $5.99 - $1 loadable - Free home mailer = -$1
2 Ambrosia apples $2.84 *
2 Granny Smith $1.21
2 Gala apples $1.07
1 lb baby carrots $1
2 Chiquita bites pineapple singles $1.29 (on sale bogo) not pictured- kid's snack :)
Tax: -$.06
Total cost oop: $2.75

*Several things to note:
The Ambrosia apples were in a spot marked .99/lb, so I went to service desk and they gave me the price difference (turns out another apple was supposed to be there) of $1.85 cash

I am not sure why the Pillsbury in ad coupon took off .60 for each, instead of .50

The fresh pet auto deducted for regular price so that was a suprise bonus when I checked my receipt.

I earned a $1 oynso catalina for purchasing 4 Kleenex in one transaction and will earn $1 in my Upromise account for the Chiquita single(you only need 1)

Cellfire LAST day to load this cycle! Will reset Dec 15

Today is the last day to load your Cellfire coupons for this cycle. You will still have 2 weeks to use them if you get them loaded today. I recommend loading them to your Safeway(Randalls, Tom Thumb) card. Tommorrow they are bound to have some duplicates to make some groceries free or really really cheap.
Don't forget to check Shortcuts before you go, as it appears they have reset some good coupons.
I plan on going today before some of my loadables expire to snag the following deals:

  • Chex Mix cereal is $1.99 if you buy 3. I have 4 loadables for $1/2 and $3/3 peelie a nice trader sent me so they will pay me ~$1 to buy 3 boxes (there are also $1/2 printable here )
  • Green Giant boxed veggies are on sale for 1.29, combined with my 4 .50/2 loadables and my .50/2 printable from here they will pay me .42 to buy 2!
  • Betty Crocker boxed potatoes are $1.69. I have 3 loadables for .40 and the printable for .40 from here, so they will pay me .31 to buy 1.
  • Kotex small liners are .99 in select stores making it free with my $1 loadable
  • Progresso soup- I need to check the cheapest price, but I have 4 .50/2 loadables so hopefully I can find a deal.

Coupons in this Sunday's paper, you might want to get spares

The new coupon list for this weekend's GM and Smart Source coupon insert is out. For those with limited access to printables, this is a good week to pick up a few papers, especially for those General Mills products since Cellfire will be resetting Tuesday. There will also be a RedPlum insert but that list is not published yet.

Preparing for next week! Cheap/free Corn Flakes

I really have not done much shopping lately, so my posts have been a bit scattered lately. As the end of the year approaches, I really just don't need much in the way of groceries, so I have just been using RR to get eggs, bread etc. I have been using the few ECBS I have to get milk and otherwise, have just done a few trips here and there.
Anyway, I was reading a little ahead(something I don't do too often this time of year because I am so busy with other things) and I saw that Kellogg's Corn Flakes will be on sale next week for $.99 a box when you buy 4 at Randalls. Well, lucky for us, there are really good printables for these right now. You might want to go here and here and print in case they reach their limit, or they take them down. Right now both sites have a printable for $1.50/2 boxes. They also both have a printable for $1.50 off your favorite store brand coffee wyb 3 boxes.
According to the ad, the limit on the Corn Flakes is 20. Depending on how many computers you have, this could turn into a very VERY good deal. (If you don't have but one computer, there are also $1.50/3 boxes of cereal coupons on both sites)
I plan on doing the following(ad says you must buy 4, not increments of 4):
10 boxes Kelloggs Corn Flakes .99 each = $9.90
- 5 coupons $1.50/2 boxes = - $7.50
Total cost $2.40
I am then eligible to send in for the $10 Kellogg's Calendar of savings rebate(limit 8 per household-if you can't find these forms, I know there are still traders on HCW that have these)

Profit of $7.60! I might use the 3 $1.50 off store brand coffee wyb 3 cereals if I can find a cheap enough bag of Safeway coffee(not sure if they sell 1 lb bags?)

Also, before I go, I will be sure to check out Cellfire as they will reset on Tuesday and I might be able to score more freebies with loadables and printables combined.

Thanks SlickCate for the heads up.

Disney Movie coupon- GForce

Disney's Gforce will be coming out on Tuesday and Disney is suppying us with another $10 printable coupon on the BluRay combo pack. Now to find the GREAT deals. Just go here and you can print the coupon. If anyone sees a better deal on this movie then the $19.99 Amazon has it listed as(especially with this $10 coupon), please let me know(please NOT Wal-mart, lol).

Free Kids Movie rentals at Hollywood Video

Not sure how long this is going on, but I just got this email from Hollywood Video. It states for a limited time, you can rent 1 free kids movie at a time at participating locations. This is valid for DVD rentals only, but if you have a local Hollywood video, might be worth a look. Look for a location near you here.

Disney Movie Rewards Double Points Day- TODAY Dec 10

Don't forget today is Double points day at Disney Movie rewards. You can get double points on up to 3 codes today. My suggestion is to enter your Blu-Ray codes first since they are worth more.
Also, don't forget to enter the daily code worth 5 points(10 points). Today's is Guinea Pig (hee hee, gotta laugh at that one Chris! - inside joke) MAKE SURE TO ENTER THIS ONE AFTER YOUR BONUS CODES. It will count double to 10 points, so if you have at least 3 movie codes, enter those FIRST.

12 Days of Chick-fil-A

I am not sure if all Chick-Fil-A stores are participating in this, but I just received an email from Chick-Fil-A in Sugar Land that has these 12 days of Christmas list of offers! Most do require a purchase, but some look like a pretty good deal to me!
Looks like Dec 16 and 22nd you can get free coffee during breakfast hours with no other purchase required. Also, they will have Santa Cow and his elves on the 14th for pictures and the 21st Santa will be there!
Might be worth checking your local store for similar offers.

Kroger Loadable Coupon site

I may have already mentioned this, but want to remind everyone of this great site Kroger has to load coupons directly to your Kroger card. If you go here you can set up your account and load up to 100 coupons at a time to your Kroger card.
There are three things I really like about this loadable site:

1. It has many Unilever products listed which the other loadable sites don't have.

2. If you decide you don't want a coupon on your card, you can remove it from your card without having to actually spend it!

3. This site is directly through Kroger, so if there are problems, you should be able to get help from Kroger Customer Support

The Kroger ad that starts tommorrow is going to have some of these items on sale, so I suggest you go and load your card tonight so you can put your list together of deals.

Some of the items I see that you might want to load:

Brawny paper towels .88 - .50 loadable

Knorr sides $1 each - .75/2 loadable
Country Crock spread on sale $2.29 - .55 loadable

Triaminic $2 loadable

Don't forget Cellfire to load

Progresso soup

Hot/Lean Pockets

Pillsbury Grands/Crescents

shortcuts to load
$1/2 Kroger oatmeal

You might also want to go to Smartsource and and print
Green Giant Steamers coupon (these will be on sale for 3/$5)

Free Leapfrog Board Book

LeapFrog is offering a free board book to parents that have LeapFrog toys already in their home. Just go to Leapfrog and sign up for their Learning Path e-newsletter. They ask what toys you have, so they can provide ideas and activities to inspire learning for your children. It is super easy to sign up(took me less than 5 minutes) and at the end you click on the provided link to have them mail you the book! Super easy and who doesn't love books! (Limit one per household)
Thanks freebies4mom for the headsup on this.

Walgreens- Really GREAT Money Maker this week

I hit up Walgreens at lunchtime since I heard there was an easy $5 moneymaker. Threw in a couple other deals to roll my register rewards from prior weeks and made a goof too(it happens)
I did 5 transactions so I wouldn't have to make multiple trips this week, although, I might go back to get some Prevacid later in the week.
Anyway, the Triaminic strips are the best deal this week. You purchase two at $5 each. We got $3/1 coupons in this past weekends paper. Combining that with the Healthy Savings booklet coupon of $2 off each, you get them FREE and earn a $5 Register Reward.
Here is my breakdown to show the other deals I mixed in:

Trans #1:
2 Triscuits $2 each - 2 $1 insert 11-8SS
3 Wheat Thins $2 each - 2 $1 insert 11-8SS - $2.50($1/2 Diabetes booklet coupon) = $2.50
2 Theraflu $5 each - $3/2 insert 10-18 SS - $4 Healthy Savings booklet = $3
2 Triaminic $5 each - 2 $3 insert 12-6 SS -$4 Healthy Savings booklet = $0
2 Activity Pads $1 - .33 in ad coupon = .67
-$5 and $1 Register Reward

2 Triaminic $5 each - 2 $3 insert 12-6SS - $4 Healthy Savings booklet = $0
4 Zooth toothbrush $3.19 each - 2 $1/2 insert 11-29PG -$4 Coloring book coupon = $6.76
3 Gift sacks .29 each - .48 in ad coupon = .39
- 2 $5 Register Rewards
Out of pocket: $.15

Earned $3 for Theraflu, $5 for Triaminic and
$5 for Zooth toothbrushes(I forgot these were not on sale anymore)

Trans #3:

1 Gift sack .29 - .16 in ad coupon = .13
-$5 Register Reward
Out of pocket: $.13

Earned $3 for Theraflu and $5 for Triaminic

*I also stopped on my way home to buy 5 more Wheat Thins/Triscuits so I can do the Jingle your Holiday rebate for $10. I didn't picture that transaction, but I used a $4 Register Reward and .23 oop and earned another $5 and $3(for Triaminic and Wheat Thins)

So out of pocket: $6.17 + $10.15 + $3.39 + $5.11 + $5.13 + $4.23 + .44 stamp = $34.62 ($1.18 of real money)

Earned: $11 + $13 + $8 + $8 + $8 + $8 = $56
Profit of $21.38

***Another note: At the first store, I picked up some Triaminic Allergy Strips and they did NOT ring up on sale, so you may want to watch them ring you up if you try to get those!

Become a fan of Safeway on Facebook

Safeway is giving away a free box of clementines tommorrow 12-8-09 for their first 25,000 customers who become a fan on facebook and load a digital coupon to their Club Card. You do have to have a min purchase of $25. I would suggest making sure the register takes off the cost of the Clementines before you pay for your purchase. Since this is company/chain wide, they may go really fast. The valid times listed on their facebook is 7 am - 11 pm.

This is valid at Randalls and Tom Thumb, but again, it is only for the first 25,000 customers.

Good luck! I hope I get one!
