FREE Sample: Pull Ups Wipes!

All Gone! :(

Walmart is offering a free sample of Pull Ups wipes...Go here to request yours.

Reader Q & A: missing coupons

Before I get into the topic of this post, I'd like to say I've noticed TLC's Extreme Couponing has changed couponing as I've known it. Many people are gaining interest in couponing because of what's portrayed in the show, and unfortunately, most of what you see, is NOT how everyday couponers shop. I have been noticing that since the show started, I have gained a few new readers, which is great....WeLCome!!! :) But, at the same time, I have also been noticing other not so good things happening in my area....unhappy cashiers, frustrated managers, shelves cleared on Sunday morning, and even as I have mentioned before....COUPONS MISSING IN MY SUNDAY PAPER....WEEKLY!! Which brings me to an email I received a couple days ago. I decided to answer in a Blog post because I know other local readers might be noticing the same thing. This is what the email said:


I'm trying to get into the couponing thing but I'm having trouble finding all of the coupons that are referenced in the blogs. I'm assuming that different areas have different coupons, but I live in the Central Valley too - Modesto - and I still don't have the same ones that you mention! What am I missing?



Well, Kelly....I wish I could tell you exactly what's going on...and yes, some coupons are regional, but for the past couple of months, my coupons have been missing, especially when there's a "HOT" coupon coming out. When I post my deals, I go by what coupons are listed in the "Coupon Preview", I still post the deals, but I've been missing out everytime there's something FREE with a really good coupon. One good example is the $3 Nivea bodywash coupons that were an automatic Freebie at Walmart since they are priced at $3, those coupons were missing....Also, back when there was a $3 Gain fabric softener coupon that would get us FREE softener at Rite Aid or softener sheets at Walmart....those were ALSO MISSING, $1 Gain dish soap coupons, FREE at Walmart, yep, you guessed it, MISSING as well!!...and I know FOR A FACT, we were supposed to get them because I have a couple of co-workers who save me their coupons since they subscribe to the Modesto Bee, and they did get those coupons, so the pattern is so obvious...they steal the coupons from news-stand or vending machine papers, but not the subscribers, since they can complain, and get the carrier in trouble. I'm not saying that all the coupons are missing ALL the time, but like I said, only the really good coupons, ones that someone could go online and see if there's a good deal on. I wish I knew what's going on, but I have a gut feeling that they are selling the coupons on ebay, or they know a couponer and they hand them over to them. As a matter of fact, I ran into a couponer in Modesto a few months ago, and she told me she liked my coupon binder and how orgainized it was, but she couldn't do that because, quote: "I wouldn't be able to carry my coupons in a binder, I get inserts by the hundreds." Now, that was a red flag to me....just like I read a person on Slick Deals posts a picture bragging of his 500+ inserts he "got early" because he has connections, AND doesn't have to "dumpster dive", now, correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that paint a picture of maybe his "connection" is a newspaper carrier who probably hands him the coupons instead of distributing them in the papers like he's supposed to??? Before I keep rambling, let me just say that if anyone in the Modesto/ Turlock/Patterson area is experiencing the same problem, please contact the Modesto Bee!!! Jonathan and I have both called and emailed, but it seems as though, they could care less. Maybe if more people start complaining, they'll listen (click here for contact information). I'm almost thinking of contacting the makers of SmartSource, RedPlum, and P&G inserts directly, to see if they can look into this matter as well.

Other posts I've mentioned this issue in:

I got another BzzCampaign Invite!!!

Yayyyyy!!! I got an invite for a new BzzCampaign from BzzAgent....for Lawry's Merinades!!! I'm excited about this, and I'm sure Jonathan will be too since he like trying new recipies...I'll post my goodies as soon as they come in the mail. :)

(I got an early invite since I have high "status" on BzzAgent, I'm a "Sweet Bee" which is the highest level available)

New Rite Aid coupon policy "Dislike!"

Well, well, well....Rite Aid has decided to change their coupon policy for the worse! You can access a copy of the policy HERE. They basically changed the best part....Bogo Sales, and Bogo coupons...and of course, limit of multiple coupons..

  • If there is a BOGO sale, we are only allowed to use 1 "cents off" coupon, for example: there's a BOGO sale on Air Wick sprays, we are only allowed to use ONE $.50 coupon on the full priced item, no coupon on the FREE item like before.

  • If there is a BOGO sale on something, we will NOT be able to use a BOGO coupon to get 2 for FREE....

  • There will be a limit of 4 Like coupons per shopping trip (Like the P&G coupons)

  • If there is a NON-BOGO sale, we will be allowed to use a Bogo coupon, in combination with a "cents off" coupon. For example: There's a sale on Air Wick sprays, $2 each, We would be able to use a BOGO coupon, along with a $.50/1 coupon, for a total of $.50 for 2.

Like I said, be sure to print yourself a copy of the new policy...hopefully they change it back, I'm not liking the looks of it.

2 Easy Freebies @ CVS, all you need is your Extra Care Card!

If you have a chance, stop by CVS this week and scan your Extra Care Card at the "Coupon Center", you'll get two coupons for freebies. First one is a coupon for a FREE CVS green bag tag (reg. price $.99), and one for $1 off any Crystal Light drink mix...the single packs are 50 cents, so since the coupon has no size exclusions, you can get 2 for FREE with that coupon! ***Local readers: my mom told me Patterson Store is wiped out of the green bag tags, I went to the Turlock store on Geer & they still had some. The Crystal Light single packets are located in the refrigerated section near the bottled water.

Don't know what a green bag tag is??? Well, you attach it to a reusable bag, and each time you use it instead of their plastic bags, they'll scan your green bag tag (limit 1 time per day), and once you've used your tag 4 times, a $1 Extra Buck will print at the bottom of your receipt, I have mine attached to my keys since I ALWAYS forget my bags, so if it's something small I'm purchasing, I'll ask if I can throw the item(s) in my purse, and I still get the scan on my card.

$1.49 Jalapeno Cheddar McChicken + FREE & money maker after survey!

I went to McDonalds last night for an evening snack, and when I got to the drive through I decided to try the new Jalapeno Cheddar McChicken sandwich....it's only $1.49! When I got to the window to pay, the guy handed me an envelope....I was hoping for coupons (hehe), but instead it was a customer satisfaction survey for the new McChicken sandwiches. It said if I completed the survey and mailed it in within the next 48 hours, they would thank me with $5 in McDonald's gift certificates!!! Plus, they included a postage paid envelope to mail it in with! I've already completed the survey, and once I receive my gift cert, it'll be like I got my sandwich FREE + a $3.51 Money Maker!!! woohoo!

***I'm not sure if all McDonald's are participating or how long it'll be going on, but you can always ask. I must add the survey was somewhat long, it took me about 10 minutes to complete, but it's worth it (I think).
