Did you get a Raincheck???

As you all know, here in CA we were lucky to have this awesome sale on Herbal Essences and Aussie for just 99 cents a piece at CVS! Obviously, that is a price to stock up on, so even people who don't use coupons will be running to score this deal. Most likely when you hit the store, the shelves will be wiped out! Luckily, you can request a rain check for when they get more product in, and the best part about a CVS raincheck???....IT NEVER EXPIRES!! So, even if you run out of coupons and request a it for when MORE $1 coupons come out to get more of these freebies!!! woohoo!!

my trip to raleys & target (jessica hubby) :)

hello people this is jonathan, jessica's hubby. jessica is kinda busy to post so im going to tell ya about my first trip alone using coupons.first i went to raleys to buy some covergirl makeup that was on clearance for $1.49 a piece and jessica had $2.50 off of 2 coupons i also found more perfect 10 hair dye coupons(only 2)which were priced at $3.87. anyway i used two $5 off coupons for the dye and 10 $2.50 off of 2 covergirl products so i ended up getting 20 covergirl products and 2 hair dye for only alil over 5 dollar which is great for me. then i went to target and bought 10 dial handsoaps and 18 old spice bodywashes which were on clearance for 48cents so i used my $1 off of 2 coupons and i combined $1 dollar target coupns for the dial with 35cent manufacturer coupons to get the dial saop for 2 cents well a bit cheaper since i got the overage for the bodywash (so total after coupons and tax was $1.22). i had a bit of drama with the cashier about the dial coupons but i think she got intimidated once i started talking back to her which i dont like to do but some of these cashiers are rude so i had to argue with them anyway thats all i did today im kinda proud of myself and sorry for the long post lol this is my first time

FREE Old Spice body wash @ Walmart!

Walmart sells their 1.7 oz trial sized bodywash for around 97 cents each, use the $3/2 coupon from the 2/21 P&G coupon insert to get these FREE w/ possible $1 overage per coupon!! I love how this coupon specifically states "Valid on 1.7 oz or larger", that's good for all those crazy cashiers out there that roll their eyes when they see us trying to use coupons to get FREE trial sized items....Can you believe I've had a lady at Walmart tell me: "Why don't you just buy the regular size?...Coupons were NOT made for trial sizes!" I was so angry that night, I wish I could run into her when I go out and buy these, lol, as soon as she tries to deny the coupons, I'll say: "Read the coupon, lady!!!" ....I always wonder why certain people act like we're taking money out of their pocket when we get freebies w/ coupons.


BOGO Starburst coupon=FREE @ Rite Aid 3/7

Become a Fan of Starburst on Facebook and get access to a printable BOGO coupon. Next week, Rite Aid will have Starburst on sale BOGO, so that means, 2 FREE w/ each coupon!!! Although I'm not much of a Starburst lover, I plan on getting some, can't go wrong with FREE!!!
** I would print this coupon now, since we don't know what the total print limit is & by what I've experienced, if you wait 'till the last minute, you might end up not being able to print the coupon.

Facebook Freebie: Nescafe

Become a Fan of Nescafe on Facebook & sign up for a FREE sample of Nescafe Taster's Choice! Looks like there is a limit of 2 per household, but it has to be different Facebook accounts.

Kmart Doubles coming soon???

OMG!! ok, usually I don't pay mind to rumors, but this is one rumor that got me kinda excited. So, the rumors going around are that Kmart may be running a Super Double coupon event the week of April 4-10th!!! But, we will have to wait and see, & even if this IS true for some, sometimes it only goes on in certain states, so lets not get too excited yet. Hopefully they will, my mother & I have been waiting too long

GREAT Clearance deal @ Rite Aid....

I was reading a post over at For the Mommas that Rite Aid has select Gillette deodorants on clearance 50% off, I stopped by my local store and noticed NO YELLOW CLEARANCE tags on any Gillette deodorants, so I decided to take a couple to the front and have the lady scan them. Luckily, the Gillette 3x (pictured above) was ringing up $2.24, regular price $4.49!!! YESSSS!!! Here's what I did with this deal:

Bought 2 Gillette 3x deodorants $4.48 for both.

Bought 2 Gillette body washes @ $4.99 each ($9.98)

Subtotal before coupons $14.46


Used 2 "buy one Gillette deodorant, get a Gillette bodywash Free" coupons

(deducted $9.98)

Used 1 $4/2 any gillette body washes or Deodorants (for the deodorants)

New Subtotal = $.46 cents +tax!!! for 2 FULL sized bodywashes and 2 deodorants!!!

***too bad I had already used all but one of my $4/2 coupons, Oh, be sure if these are not marked 50% off at your store , have them price check since this happened to me as well....& also, sorry I can't tell you exactly which date the coupons were from, all I know for sure is that they are P&G insert coupons! :)

Thanks, Shannon!
