SS, RP, PG, blinkie, tearpad, peelie, hangtag, Catalina??!!??

Many of you already know all about the different kinds of coupons and where to find them, but for the newbies, it might be confusing when I say: " Look for a blinkie of this, and a tearpad of that...Oh, and don't forget to give the cashier the Peelie, and when you're done paying, make sure you get your Catalina!!!" Lol...for that reason, I thought it might be nice to explain it in a little more detail, because it's not always about the Sunday newspaper coupons. Also, a good source for coupons is when you order free samples online. Sometimes those come with higher value coupons than the ones you find in the paper.

These are the most common types of coupons I'll refer to:

Weekly Sunday newspaper inserts come in MOST Sunday newspapers, except on Holiday weekends which I don't understand, but they don't. There are typically 3 different inserts we get : the SmartSource (SS) , RedPlum (RP), and P&G (PG)....every once in a while we'll get a different one or two. Sunday coupons usually last around a month before expiring, but there are always a few that don't expire for another year. Save all of your inserts because it's usually when the coupons are about to expire, that the stores decide to run a sale to get the coupon value instead of having the products just sit at the store collecting dust.


A tearpad coupon is one you find next to a product and is in the form of...well, a They usually have a couple months before expiration, but the only downfall is that they run out fast at the store, so when you get a "heads up" about a tearpad coupon, you may just run into the back of the pad that says "Sorry, we are out of coupons" or something like that.


A blinkie is a coupon you find hanging out of these little machines up and down the isles at the store. I love blinkies, they have at least a couple months shelf life, so there's enough time to find a sale to use them on. The way they generally work is, you pull out a coupon, then another one comes right out, if you take the second one, there's a longer wait time until the next one dispenses...I guess so people don't take them all.


A peelie is a coupon you will find stuck on a product at the store. Some people think that you can only use them on that specific product it is stuck on, but that is not the case. I have found peelies on products that are not the same, for example, I found a coupon for Scrubbing bubbles on a package of Cottonelle toilet paper. Many times, if the coupon does not state a size, you can peel it off and use it on a smaller version of that product. Peelies always have a long shelf life, sometimes, a year or two. So, if I find peelies, I take a couple and add them to my binder for future sales. But, if you don't agree with what I think, by all means, don't take 'em! Lol


A hangtag coupon is when you see a coupon hanging from a product, usually a bottle of something. Hangtag coupons have a long shelf life. This particular hangtag I saw in Target stores in the beginning of the year, and don't expire until December 31st! Target often puts hangtag coupons on products, the good thing is that they are actual Target store coupons, so you can use them on top of your manufacturer coupons, or save them for clearance deals.


A Catalina, is a coupon that prints out of a little machine next to the cash registers at most stores. Whenever you see a sale that says something like: "Spend $20 in P&G products, and get $5 on your next shopping order", that means, you have to buy the $20 in P&G items and when you're done paying, you will get a long coupon "catalina" to use on your next shopping trip. Many times these coupons have a shelf life of about 2 weeks, so you have to remember to use them before you lose them....


Each Sunday when you get coupon inserts in your paper, I might refer to a coupon by saying : "Use the $1/1 coupon from 4/26 SS insert". That means, you will need the $1 couopn from the SmartSource insert that was in the April 26th Sunday paper. What if you've been saving your coupon inserts and have no idea what date each one is from? Do you start flipping through all your inserts hoping to find the coupon? Nope! You're in luck...all you have to do is look at the edge of the insert, it will tell you what date the insert was found in the newspaper. Cool huh???

FREE Arm & Hammer Toothpaste @ Safeway!!!

Safeway has a good deal going on select varieties of Arm & Hammer toothpaste, sale price is $1.49, but if you buy 3 or more, you get them for 49¢ each....that's a good deal alone right???? Since if you buy 1, or 3...the price is still $1.49, BUT!!! There are 2 inserts with a 75¢ Arm & Hammer toothpaste coupon. Which means you'll score FREE toothpaste with a 26¢ overage on each coupon you beeps! Just make sure you have enough extra stuff to cover your overage otherwise the coupons won't go through, and there's also a possibility they will adjust the coupon down and not allow the overage, so it's YMMV.

You can get in on this deal if you have at least 3 coupons from either:

6/20 SmartSource (exp 9/30/10), or

8/22 SmartSource (exp 11/30/10)

I used my Swagbucks to buy Gain dish soap coupons!!!

Remember how I told you that my Sunday paper was missing the P&G insert??? Well, I was thinking about a way to get a hold of some for FREE, I checked ebay for the price on those coupons and OH-my god... $9.99 for 20 coupons!!!?!!??? Are you kidding me!?!?!?! Once the price on the coupons gets that crazy, it's like you're not getting the items FREE anymore, but for 50¢ each +tax....not good. I found someone who had 20 coupons for $4-something +shipping so, I logged onto my Swagbucks account and redeemed 700 Swagbucks for $5 PayPal cash...the total was around $5.15, so I got 20 coupons for 15¢! Now, THAT, is a better deal don't you think??? Oh, and not to mention, I'm a little happier now that I'll be able to stock up on Gain dishsoap afterall.... Once I try it, I will update on how it worked, I can't wait!!! :)
