I got lucky.....what else can I say :)

Remember the $4 Coppertone coupon I told you about from last weeks paper??? They're expired now, but when I saw a post about it over at Common Sense with Money, I left a comment that I had gotten those coupons in the paper and since I know many areas didn't get the coupon, I asked if anyone would be willing to trade Coppertone coupons for the $2 Air Wick aqua mist coupons since they're on price cut at Target for $1.99, making them FREE after coupon (we didn't get the Aqua Mist coupon here).

I remember getting home from work and going back to the post to see if I had any respones....I did!....A wonderful lady named AMY left a comment under mine that said:

"I got some $2.50 off Air Wick aqua mist and do not need them. I will be happy to mail to you."

I then got excited and left another comment with my email address, but since there was no link to another blog or website with her name, the only chance I had to get a hold of her is if SHE returned to the same post to read MY response......SHE DID!!!! I got an email from her asking for my address and told me she had at least 20 coupons, but since the Coppertone coupons would expire soon, she didn't want them, but she would still send me the coupons.....sure enough, they came in the mail and I now have 20 free bottles of Air Wick aqua mist from Target!!!! As I was getting ready to take the photo of my new freebies, JJ (my son), squeezed in....he's too funny, but can't stand still which explains the blurry look.

What a surprise!!! Thank you soooooooo much Amy, let me know if you need any other coupons and I'll mail them to you.......

Check your emails!

This morning I checked my email and I had an email from CVS with a coupon for a free gift! I get to choose between a 20 count pack of CVS antibacterial moist wipes or CVS 10 oz shaving cream. I think I'll be getting the wipes, they'll be good to put in JJ's diaper bag.
If you don't get emails from CVS, you probably don't have an online account with them....If you don't, I would suggest doing so, because they also send the $5/$25 and other coupons as well...all you do is enter your information and CVS extra care card number. Sign up [HERE]

This past sunday's (6/20) Smart Source insert had a $4 coupon for ANY Coppertone product (no size restrictions), use them at Walmart on the 1.5 oz, they are priced $4.18, so only 18¢ after coupon! , Keep in mind these coupons expire on 6/27, so be sure to use them before they do.

They had two kinds available, Sport and Water Babies, both are SPF 50, and are located where all the full sized sunscreen is, this is NOT a trial size!

Safeway coupon policy update:

I guess so many people got excited about the new coupon policy at Safeway and started using Register Rewards at Safeway becuause they changed the policy AGAIN!!!

$2 off Post cereal catalina that has a Walgreens logo (will accept)

$2 off your next shopping order/Register Reward (will NOT accept)

Gum Coupon BOLO!

In case you're wondering 'what the heck is a BOLO?''s an acronym for the words:

Be On (the) Look Out!! lol, I've been watching too much COPS on tv.....anyway, look what coupons we found at Food Maxx a couple days ago...I've also seen the Dentyne coupon at Safeway.

Buy One Get one FREE Dentyne Pure gum (up to $2) expires 12/31/10!!

Buy One Get one FREE Stride Shift gum (up to $1.99) expires 8/31/10!

Why are these coupons good??? Well, If a store runs a sale on these Buy One Get One Free, you get 2 FREE w/ each coupon, same thing if Kmart decides to run their "Super Doubles" again. Since these have a pretty long shelf life (expiration), there's plenty of time for us to put them to good, if you find 'em, be sure to grab a couple because I may be pairing these coupons with a good sale in the near future.

Another link for the Bulls Eye BBQ sauce coupon

I found a new link for the Bull's Eye Regional barbecue sauce to use at Safeway for the "buy 8, save $4" promo....

Print 2 coupons from [HERE]

Print 2 coupons from [HERE]

***If you have 2 computers, you can end up with 8 coupons....and 8 FREE bottles of Bull's Eye barbecue sauce at Safeway since the minimum amount of items to buy is 8 to get them for 99¢ each.

FREE Pampers Wipes @ Walmart!

I've been holding off on posting this deal since Walmart prices vary by region, but I went to Walmart last night and saw the new thick care Pampers wipes 72 count soft pack (as shown in coupon above) are priced at $1.97, so use the $2 coupon from 6/6 P&G coupon insert to get these FREE!

25¢ Eggo Waffles @ Target starting Sunday!

Next week, 6/13-6/19, Target will have their Eggo waffles on Sale for $1.75 a box. But, use the following coupons to get 2 boxes for 50¢ (only 25¢ a box!). .

Buy 2 boxes of Eggo Waffles-$3.50

Use $1/2 manufacturer coupons from SmartSource blinkie machines

=25¢ each when you buy 2!

***The Eggo manufacturer coupons can be found at several grocery stores (I found some at FoodMaxx), so keep an eye out for those! If you don't find them, your price will be 75¢ a box, still a good deal though. Also, if your store still gives you a hassle for using a Target and a manufacturer coupon on the same item, be sure to print their Coupon Policy which clearly states we can.

Sears: Father's Day clothing promo...

Now that Father's Day is just around the corner, Sears is offering a "buy $50, get $50". If you normally shop at Sears, this might be a good deal for you. Buy $50 in men's clothing between 6/11 -6/20/10, submit a rebate form and receive $50 by mail valid on men's clothing. I'm thinking it will come in the form of a voucher. You can get more information and the rebate form [HERE].
****Make this deal sweeter by purchasing a $50 Sears gift card next week at CVS(starting Sunday the 13th), since they will be having a Extra Buck deal on select $50 gift cards (Sears being one of them) , get $10 extra bucks, so essentially, pay $40 for the $50 gift card, and after rebate, get a $50 voucher....not too bad.
Update: I'm seeing reports that someone called Sears and they were told that this deal is void if items were purhcased with a giftcard, which sounds pretty crazy to me , but I'm not going to suggest doing so, just to be safe, sorry guys!

New Bull's eye bbq sauce coupon= FREE @ Safeway...

**remember you can print 2 coupons per computer!

Safeway....New coupon policy!!! :) ***now accepting Catalinas from other stores

I'm glad to see Safeway has now changed their "strict" coupon policy....I've emailed them in the past about some drama I had with a cashier who wouldn't let me redeem printable coupons which would essentially get me free cans of Maybe enough of us complained and they probably realized that in the end, THEY were the ones losing, not the customer...since we just gave our business to another retailer.

One highlight I see is that Safeway is now accepting ALL valid Catalina coupons issued by other retailers!!! (example: Walgreens Register Rewards!) yayyyyyy!!!! That's awesome!...So many times we "make" money at Walgreens, so now if we don't find good deals before they expire, heck, we'll use them at Safeway to buy groceries...can't go wrong with that!

Oh, and another good thing is that they took out the horrible rule they had for printable coupons which stated, "printable coupons cannot exceed 50% of the items value"....thank god!....didn't they know to begin with that printable coupons are usually higher value than newspaper insert coupons???, so that was kinda hard to stick to....

You can access & print the new Safeway coupon policy [HERE]
