Did you ever notice the coupons for various stores/pharmacy's that offer a gift card with a new or transferred prescription? This is a great way to make a little money when you have to fill a prescription.
In this week's Meijer ad, there is a coupon for a free $10 gift card with a NEW or TRANSFERRED prescription.
Last week there was the same type of coupon in the Target ad, and you can also print it online here.
Rite Aid often has 2 $25 gift cards for filled prescriptions in their ads or online. CVS coupons for these gift cards will often print out with your receipt. Walgreens will sometimes send these coupons/checks in the mail.
Remember to read the fine print. Some of these have a limit of one, and some (like Target) says one per prescription, so you could use one for every script you're filling!
If you need to stock up on diapers, try out diapers.com. They offer free shipping (1-2 days) on orders over $49 and usually have some good coupon codes or manufacturer coupons you can select. Plus, new customers can save $10 on diapers or formula with code: 123DIAPERS and there is a rebate for $14.97 HERE (it's a free magazine, but you can request the price as a refund check- just read the details).
Here is a scenario you could try:
Just head over to diapers.com and register for a new account
Then add 7 Jumbo packs of Luvs to your cart at $6.99 each- I got 5 in size 1 for future baby showers and 2 packs of size 5 for my littlest who is still using diapers at night.
To qualify for free shipping, I added the WetOnes travel pack for $1.49 to get me over $49.
Than use code 123DIAPERS at checkout to get an extra $10 off
My total came to $40.42, but then I can then submit the rebate HERE for $14.97 back
My total is $25.45 for 7 packs of diapers and a pack of wipes! Or just $3.64 per pack! That is a great price for diapers!
Remember, my post about how I love to get the mail? Well here is what I received in my mailbox today! (I know, I get excited easily!)
* a cute little pouch to carry powdered drink mixes in (or, more likely will be used for makeup) from Nestle "Glowelle."
* a free sample of "Glowelle" beauty drink mix, Pomegranate flavor
* a rebate from True North Cluster for $3.50
* 2 coupons for Bath and Body works: one for a free antibacterial pocketbac and one for 20% off
* a free Frizz styling spray from Living Proof.
Also, in the last few days I received four new magazines: Oprah, All You (packed with high value coupons!), Better Homes and Gardens, and Woman's Day. These were all free subscriptions I signed up for (except the BH&G, which I think is still part of a gift subscription from my Mom. Thanks, Mom!). I don't always have time to read these cover to cover, but they are nice to flip through when dear Husband is watching sports, and there all always coupons inside!
Want to have fun getting the mail? Try this sample: Click HERE to request a free sample of 6 flavors of Nescafe Tasters Choice coffee sticks. And sign up for this 3 month magazine subscription here to Family Circle.

I get so many magazines each month that I barely have time to read them. And, guess what... they were all free! Free magazine subscription offers come along often.
Here is a new one for you courtesy of Valuemags.com! Go here to get 3 FREE issues of Family Circle magazine (May, June and July 2010)! Don’t worry, you will never receive any sort of bill in the mail and there are no strings attached! These free magazines really do come, but this deal may not last long, so HURRY!
Old Navy has some great prices everyday, but starting today through Sunday you can get an additional 50% off already clearanced items!! Stock up for clothes for next year or for presents!
Before you go, head over to Old Navy Weekly, a site that updates weekly with *hidden* coupons. There are still some 10% off and $10 off $50 coupons you can print.
Here is how:
To get the 10% off, just take the green headband off the blond girl and put it on the girl next to her with black hair.
To get the $10 off $50, click on the men's blue shirt on the right side and switch places with the green tank top.
You can only print one coupon, but you can share one with a friend on facebook.
Get 4 friends to become a fan of 1800Hansons on Facebook. Once they become a fan, they just need to leave a comment with YOUR NAME. Once you see your name in the comment section, you can email email@example.com requesting your four free passes (include your address in the email).
1800Hansons did this deal last week too, and we were able to get our 4 free passes. They came in the mail just a few days later!
YOU HAVE UNTIL 5 PM TODAY, SO HURRY!!

2. Refer your friends (at least 6) to the ArtsCow Facebook fan page
3.Click on the blue “Send Invitation” button and confirm.

5.Create your mousepad at Arts Cow and enter your coupon code on the checkout page. It will deduct the price of the mousepad ($5.99) and the shipping- your total should be 0!
This was very simple and took me less than 5 minutes!
Do you use swagbucks to do your online searching? If your answer is no, you really ought to be! Swagbucks is a search engine (like google) that rewards you "swagbucks" for doing your online searching. You can then use these "bucks" to get rewards, like gift cards, apparel, electronics, books, and MORE. My favorite reward is the $5 Amazon.com gift card for 450 swagbucks.
You can also get more bucks on Fridays, which is Mega Swagbucks Day, for using their toolbar (download for free), or by completing special offers. Once in awhile they give out extra codes as well!
Have I convinced you yet? If so, give it a try! Just go here to register and start earning!
Have you noticed the Redbox movie rental kiosks at Meijer and Kroger? You can rent a movie here for $1 as long as you return it by 9 pm the next day. Redbox often has codes for free rentals as well.
Try these codes next time you're there and see if you can get a free rental! There should be a button to push that says "Rent with a code" or something like that. It beats the $4 price at some video stores!
If you've been to the Target toy aisles lately, you've noticed that they have some clearance sections of toys marked down to 30%, 50%, and 75% off! I've been stalking these aisles, waiting for the clearance to all go to 75% off, as usually happens a few weeks in July and January.
Well, today is the day! I just called Target and the clearance has been changed to 75% off! I wanted to hop on the computer really quickly to share this with you. If you have baby showers, birthdays, or any other need for cheap toys, check out Target before the selection is gone!
I'll let you know what I find- please let us know in the comment section if you score some good deals!

Free Taco at Taco Bell! Taco Bell is trying to promote their “drive through diet” with a coupon for a free fresco taco. Print one per computer. (I had to laugh at first at the thought of a drive through diet, but I guess it could work!) If you printed this previously, it has been reset, so try to print it again! Once you print, it's valid for 7 days or until the millionth free taco has been given out.
You can also print a different coupon for a free Fresco Taco with purchase of a drink. Go here to print this one- it doesn't expire until January 19th.
IKEA is offering free kids meal January 16 - January 18, 2010. Choose any three kid-sized items to create a meal, including five meatballs, mac and cheese, PB&J sandwich, kids yogurt, two cookies, chocolate milk and more! No adult purchase necessary. Kids under 12 only. Offer not valid at IKEA Houston and IKEA Direct.
The Canton, Mi store is participating! Are your kids out of school on Monday for MLK Day? This would be a fun and free treat!
(side note: I know it looks like those kids are drinking red wine. I think it's supposed to be IKEA's ligonberry juice. I don't know why it's in a wine glass!)
Hi everyone.... Again.
I started this blog back on January 6, but didn't tell a soul about it. I was basically just learning the ropes, getting things "prettified" (shouldn't that be a word?), and seeing if this was something I would have time to do.
I really am excited about getting great deals and SHARING them with others! I don't know why I am this way; perhaps counseling could reveal the source of my frugal and freebie-addicted ways. I just know that others seem to be excited when I pass on a good deal, so I guess I'm not the only weird one. HaHa!
Anyways, with teaching part time, being a stay-at-home-mom most of the time, working on finishing my Graduate degree, and being involved with church, I don't want to neglect the other things in my life. I had to make sure that I could FIRST focus on these things, and make this my little hobby! So, I am going to attempt to only post deals during our family rest/nap time in the afternoon and/or after the kiddos are in bed for the night.
Please share my blog with EVERYONE you know! :) Just kidding, but do please pass it along to others who you feel could benefit from it! I really appreciate it.
Thanks for reading!!
ps: oh, and most of the deals I posted about during my practice period are still active, so scroll down and see if anything jumps out at you!
Here is a great freebie for men to buy for someone special for Valentine's day. Make any purchase at Victoria's Secret and use this coupon to get a FREE regular size 7-oz. Garden Body Scrub ($9 value)! Remember, this is with ANY purchase, so you can buy an inexpensive item like the hand sanitizers or lip gloss and still get the freebie! Of course, if you're shopping for Valentine's Day, go ahead and spend a little more than that, okay guys? ;)
Want a $1/1 Smucker's Uncrustables coupon? These coupons don't come along often, so go HERE and print yours! My kids LOVE these, and they are nice to keep in the freezer when you need lunch made quickly or when you're on the go. I stock up on these for picnics in the summer!
If you pair these with a sale or a store coupon, you could get a great deal!

Uniball is giving away 10,000 Super Ink Technology Pens to the first 10,000 people per day to register. Just go here at 12 p.m. CDT (central daylight time) to try to snag yours. I haven't been successful yet, but this goes on everyday until April 30th. Dear Husband loves a great pen, so I'll keep trying! :)
This pen is supposed to be safer than other pens against check fraud because the ink cannot be erased... or something like that.

Milk coupons are very rare, so take advantage of this one!
You can register to win a year's supply of milk (wouldn't that be GREAT?!?), but everyone who enters will be able to print a coupon for a free half gallon of chocolate milk with the purchase of any two gallons.
With two little ones who enjoy cereal for breakfast with chocolate milk in their cups, and a dear husband who likes a bowl of cereal at night (weird, huh?), we go through milk quickly in our house! If two and a half gallons is too much for your fridge at one time, freeze some for later!
Go here to enter and then print your coupon (it will be at the bottom after you enter). These coupon are only valid for the 1st 125,000 to enter, so hurry!
Oh, and you can enter this contest once a day through 2/8/10!
I only recently joined Facebook (a few months ago) and I did it for the coupons! Of course, I have enjoyed connecting with some long-lost friends again, but I have really been excited about all the great Facebook Freebies with the "Become a Fan" button! Lots of companies are joining Facebook and giving away freebies in order to generate lots of fans.
Here is a new one- Become a Fan of Einstein Bros. Bagels and get a coupon for a free Bagel! Just visit this link Einstein Bagels on Facebook, you’ll immediately be able to print a coupon for a FREE Bagel and Schmear (love that word)!
