Surprise peelie coupon on large drink cup at McDonald's

We went to McDonald's the other night and ordered a large drink (lately we've been buying drinks there since they are only $1 for any size) our surprise it had a peelie coupon like pictured above for a FREE 12oz. Smoothie or Frappe!!! It expires on 8/15 just like the ones that were in the Parade magazine a couple weeks ago. The only weird thing I noticed, is that it says it is for "your future visit" , "at least 2 hours after initial visit", I'm guessing you can't buy the drink, then turn around and get the free smoothie right away...kinda strange, but oh

NEW Gain Dish Soap coming soon + Walmart sampling event

I received this random postcard with coupons from P&G ( I have no idea how, I didn't sign up for it) , anyway, it had a coupon for a FREE 11 0z. bottle of new Gain dish soap which will be in stores this August...I had never heard of this dishsoap before so I decided to "google" it & see what other information I could my surprise, I stumbled upon a Walmart sampling event for this new dish soap, evidently they will be handing out free 11 0z. samples as well!!! That's a pretty good size sample...(the FREE Dawn with Olay dishsoap we've been getting free at CVS with the Home Made Simple coupons are around 9 oz., so it's even a little bigger than that, woohoo!!)

Did anyone else get this awesome coupon in the mail this week???!!!?

The Walmart sampling event will run anywhere between 7/22-7/25/10, you can check if there are any participating stores near you [HERE]
***for my local readers: looks like the only store participating is the SuperCenter in Modesto (on McHenry Ave)...which will actually be on Saturday the 24th, from 11 am-4pm.

FREE Kool Aid Fun Fizz @ Savemart!

I spotted these trial packs of Kool Aid Fun Fizz at Savemart and if you have any $1/1 tearpad coupons you can get these free since they have no size restriction. I also found a $1/1 coupon included with a free sample of the Kool Aid Fun Fizz that was in a multi-pack of Oreo & chips ahoy cookies I purchased a few weeks, you may have these stashed in your binder somewhere. I actually had them since the beginning of the year when my fiancee found them at FoodMaxx, they had a long expiration date (12/31/10!), so I held on to them and , a few months later.....came in handy. Oh, and the coupon went through with no beeps!

The trial pack includes 4 drink drops: 2 punch, and 2 son tried them and loves them, and I feel better giving him these than other sugary drinks since these only have 5 calories per drop & have NO SUGAR! :) If you don't have these coupons, you can look on ebay, I saw some going for around 99¢ for 10, not too bad.

Limit was 5 at my store but they let me get six since you have to buy 2 for every coupon. After the limit, they still ring up 37¢ and the coupons automatically adjust & deduct 74¢, NO BEEPS thank goodness.
Looks like this sale's been going on since 6/30, but my fiancee just found this deal tonight since he went in to get something we needed....sorry I didn't find out sooner.
Sale ends 7/6, coupon expires 7/, basically, you've gotta hurry! :)

FREE trial sized products @ Target!

Yesterday's paper had a few coupons you can use at Target to get FREE trial sized products...

Pantene hairspray
Use $1/1 any Pantene styler, treatment or hairspray 7/4 P&G
Final Price=FREE!


Olay single bar soap
Use $1/1 any bar soap, bodywash or in shower lotion 7/4 P&G
Final Price=FREE!

Olay Quench mini lotion
Use $1/1 any Olay lotion 7/4 P&G
Final Price=FREE!

Tide single load packet
Use $1/1 any Tide laundry detergent 7/4 P&G
Final price=FREE!

***although none of these coupons have a size restriction, some cashiers don't like the idea of us getting trial sized items free, so be sure to have your Target Coupon Policy handy which says if the value of the coupon exceeds the value of the item it may be adjusted down. I find that if I explain to the cashier (or sometimes even a team leader!) how to adjust the coupon, it makes it much, I always tell the cashier that it's usually done manually by pressing the "K4" button, followed by "manufacturer coupon" (I think it's "K2"), then it will prompt the cashier to enter the amount of the discount, that's it!!! Just be sure they don't scan the coupon before they press the "K4" button, otherwise it won't work.

FREEBIE @ El Pollo Loco

El Pollo Loco is offering a coupon for a FREE Flame-grilled chicken leg with any purchase. Here's a funny thought, my fiancee Jonathan likes the chicken burritos from there, but since they're almost $4, he usually orders the $1 BRC burrito and a chicken leg , then he turns the leg into chicken pieces and adds them to his burrito, he turns a $4 burrito, to $2...w/ no coupons!!! now, with this coupon he'll be able to make his "special burrito" for only $1....hahahaha.

Offer valid from July 5-7th only!

My Trip to Rite Aid..... 7/1/10

One of the best things I like about getting FREE after coupon items, is that you build your amount up to $20 on the FREE items, then use the $5/$20 on 1 or two extra items to get those FREE as's what I did:

StayFree pads are on sale this week BOGO (2/$3.99)....

Bought 6 packages of Stayfree pads @ $3.99/2

Bought 2 Got2be products w/ a bonus! (reg price $6.49, but with my wellness+ card they rang up $5.84)

Used $5/20 printable coupon from watching video values

Used 3 BOGO Stayfree coupons (-$11.97)

Used 2 $3/1 Got2be Rite Aid printable coupons from video values

Used 2 $1 Got2be manufacturer coupons I got from BzzAgent

Subtotal = -$1.32

+tax ($1.56)....Final Price= 24¢!!! yay!

*I didn't realize until I got home why I went into a negative balance before tax. Well, evidently I earned a 10% discount on the Got2be with my wellness card from getting points from previous purchases I think, I'm still not too familiar with the Wellness+ program...... overall this trip was a good deal!

Cheap Dentyne Pure gum @ Walgreens!

Yay!!! .....ok, so remember the BOGO Dentyne Pure coupons I told you to look for at either at Food Maxx or Safeway??? Well, I hope you got a hold of some because I have a sweet deal to share with you at Walgreens this week:

Dentyne gum on sale this week 3 for $1.98 through sat

Buy 6 packs -or in pairs of 3 so you can use the Walgreens coupon if that makes sense...($3.98)

Use 2 bogo coupons (-66¢ each, now your total is $2.66 )

Use 99¢/3 Walgreens coupon from July Coupon Booklet (will deduct 99¢ for every 3 packs)

=68¢ for all 6 packages! (or only 11¢ each!!!)

***now this is the price if your cashier enters the amount of 66¢ when he/she scans the BOGO coupon, I noticed on my receipt, that my cashier deducted the regular price, so I ended up with FREE gum, but they will still get reimbursed for the amount they deducted. No wonder I didn't get to use all the coupons I handed him, it was already exceeding the value of the gum. woohoo! But, If you don't get lucky, worst case scenario you pay 11¢ a pack which is still a heck of a deal. & of course if you'd like, you can just skip this deal and wait for a FREE deal since the coupons are good through the rest of the year.
