None of us want a bunch of SPAM/junk emails in our email boxes.

Free Einstein Bros. Bagels are back!!!

Hi All,

A few months ago, there were coupons for a Free Bagel and Schmear (cream cheese...) at Einstein Bros. Bagels. I had never had one from there because we didn't have any where we used to live. Well, there are some in our area so I figured I get the free one to try.....WOW!!! Love them!!! They are expensive so I don't go too often. Einstein's has just released another coupon and it's for a FREE Bagel and a Schmear. If you have an Einstein's near you it's a free meal/snack for you! Take the kids...give each of them a coupon (they are customers, too!).

How do you get one? Just become a fan of Einstein's on Facebook. Once you do that just click on Offers on their facebook page (site is very slow right now...they are getting slammed with requests for coupons).

Click HERE to become a fan. Enjoy!

This week's Freebies at CVS

Hi Everyone,

Ready to roll those CVS Extra Bucks you got last week (if you haven't started yet, just join in!).

Therma Care Heat Wraps are on sale for 2.49 -- you can get coupons for this item by CLICKING HERE (I received a 3.00 off one...others have been getting 1.00 off one). If you're computer will let you, you can print it twice by hitting the back button (upper left corner of your screen -- the left arrow button) after the coupon prints.

So, you purchase TWO of the Terma Care Heat wraps that are on sale for 2.49 = 4.98
Also, purchase ONE green bag tag (just ask the cashier) -- and make sure she scans it (I'll explain more about this below) = .99
Buy a candy bar (or something else) that is at least .60
Use TWO of the Coupons for 1.00 off each = -2.00
*****Use the 4.50 Extra Bucks you got last week to pay....NEW TOTAL: .07!!!!!!!!!!
And -- here's the will get back 5.97 back in extra bucks (4.98 for the wraps and .99 for the green tag).

What is a Green Tag, you ask??? It's CVS's idea for going green. What benefit is it to you? Well, first, you got it free with the Extra Care Program! Second, the idea is that you attach it to a reusable bag and bring that bag with you when you shop (you can just use a plastic grocery bag). Have them scan the tag every time you shop at CVS. On every fourth trip you will get an extra 1.00 Extra Buck!!! Every little bit helps, right? I keep the tag in my purse. If I forget to bring a reusable bag or plastic grocery bag I just tell them that I'll carry my items out of the store without a bag and they still scan my green tag.

For those of you that have been following along the past few weeks, you probably still have another couple of bucks left from last week....just hang on to them -- they are good for a month. I just paper clip all my extra bucks together in order of Expiration Date.

Enjoy this weeks freebies!

Free 7-UP and Free Scotch Brite Sponges!

HI Everyone!

How about some Free 7-UP and Free Scotch Brite Sponges!?

The 2 Liter Bottles of 7-UP go on sale quite often for 1.00 or under. If you have a Fry's store near you, they are on sale this week for 1.00. If not, check your other stores or Wal-Mart. Here is a printable coupon for 1.00 off a 2 Liter Bottle. Use this coupon when they are on sale at your store and they will be free. Don't forget that you can print the coupon twice if you hit the back button (or left arrow on the top left of your screen) right after the coupon prints.

CLICK HERE to get the coupon!

Also, Scotch Brite Sponges....the single sponges go on sale quite often for 1.00 at many stores (Fry's has them for 1.00 right now!). Here is a link to a PDF file that has 4 coupons to a page. You can print this as many times as you want to! I do NOT suggest trying to use more than a couple at a time or you will raise red flags with the cashier. Personally, I have been using 2 at a time with my other groceries. Some stores do not accept printed coupons......just wanted to let you know that! I do know that Fry's, Safeway, Basha's, Albertsons, CVS, Walgreens, Target, and Wal-Mart all accept them (I have emailed each of these places and had them email me their internet coupon policies -- I carry them with me in case there is a question!).

Anyways...FREE SPONGES! CLICK HERE to get the coupons!

Ready to start get freebies at CVS???

NOTE: The deals listed below end on Saturday evening (the 10th) so get started! New deals will start on Sunday.

Hi Everyone!

This is a long post but once you get through this first "learning to CVS" the rest will be simple. Don't wait til next week to start as you'll just have to read through this and figure out how to apply it!

So, everyone always asks me about my freebies at CVS. I have been CVS-ing for over 5 years. We haven't paid for shampoo, hand soap, toothpaste, deodorant, toothbrushes, etc., for years and we have enough stockpiled that we'll probably never have to pay for them again -- EVER! If you don't have a CVS Extra Care Card....GET ONE! I have a couple of them (one for me, one for my hubby, and one extra). It gets confusing to have multiple cards so my suggestion if you are new to this is to start with one. I haven't used my hubby's card in awhile but there are some good deals this week so I decided to start it up again and you are welcome to "follow along" and see how this works! Now, the first thing you may say is "I don't need those items".....change your thinking! You may not need it or even want it but it will be the start (and continuation) of getting you the items you do want -- for free! So, what to do with the items you don't want or need??? Several options...give them to friends, donate them, save them for a garage sale, etc. I do not have young children but purchased this week's deals anyways....some I gave away, some I am saving for a sale. So, here's how to start the dealing:

1. You'll need a few coupons for this deal and they are all printable! NOTE: You can print a printable coupon twice for each computer that you have. Once the first coupon starts printing just hit the "back" button (or left arrow button on the top left of your screen) -- you'll get a message saying the info needs to be okay and the coupon will print again! The first coupon you need is from Pedialyte. It's a coupon for Buy One Get One Free. Print it twice. CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE SITE.

2. You'll also want to get some coupons for Nature's Bounty Vitamins. This one will take a few minutes for you to do. You need to sign up for the Nature's Bounty Rewards Program. Just go to and on the left side of the screen there is an area near the top that says Healthy Rewards Sign Up Today. Do it!!! Once you are done registering you need to enter 5 codes so you can get 500 points and get the 5.00 off coupons! Sign in to your account (if you aren't already) -- Click here to go to the sign in page. Then, on the right side of the page you will see "Enter Codes". Here are the 5 codes that will get you the points you need:

Product Number: 2099 Lot Number: 18576402
Product Number: 51135 Lot Number: 18576402
Product Number: 27602 Lot Number: 18576402
Product Number: 17139 Lot Number: 18576402
Product Number: 2386 Lot Number: 18576402

Whew!!! Your done with that part! Now, on the Right Side of the page you will see "Redeem My Points Now". Click on that. You will see several coupons that you can print. Choose the 5.00 coupon. Print it twice (once the first one starts printing just "go back" one page by clicking on the left arrow at the top left of your screen). You now have two 5.00 coupons.

Okay.....TIME TO GO TO THE STORE!!! You should have two Buy One Get One Free Pedialyte Coupons and two 5.00 off Natures Bounty Coupons and your CVS Extra Card (if you don't have one just ask for one when you enter the store).

Head to the Price Check Scanner (most stores have two of them....just ask the cashier where they are located). Scan your card and you will have a few coupons print out of the machine. You should receive one for 1.00 off any CVS Paper Product and one for 1.00 off any CVS Skin Care Product.

Go to the Vitamin Section and pick out two Nature's Bounty Vitamins that cost 4.99. They are on sale this week Buy One Get One Free. Don't worry, you can use both coupons (more on that below). Now, head to the baby section and pick out 4 pedialyte products (make sure you are getting the brand name stuff...not the cvs stuff...they look very similar). You can pick the big bottle of juice, the freezer pops, or the four pack of small bottles). Now, move over to the baby wipes and pick out one of the packages that is on sale for 2 for 4.00 (you only need to buy one). Now find the Q-Tips....get the 375 count CVS Cotton Swabs (make sure it's the CVS brand!). One more item....CVS Baby Lotion (get the CVS Brand!) for 1.99.

Head to the register!!! Have the cashier scan your extra care card (very important!)

Here's what you have:

CVS Baby Wipes: 2.00
Pedialyte: 4.99
Pedialyte: 4.99
Pedialyte: 4.99
Pedialyte: 4.99
CVS 375 count Cotton Swabs: 1.99
CVS Baby Lotion: 1.99
Natures Bounty Vitamins: 4.99
Natures Bounty Vitamins: 4.99

SUBTOTAL: 35.92 - 4.99 (Natures Bounty is Buy One Get One free): 30.93 -- time to use your coupons!
Hand over your coupons for:
Pedialyte Buy One Get One Free: -4.99
Pedialyte Buy One Get One Free: -4.99
Natures Bounty Vitamins: -5.00
Natures Bounty Vitamins: -5.00
CVS Coupon for 1.00 off Paper Product (the cotton swabs!): -1.00
CVS Coupon for 1.00 off Skin Care (the baby lotion!): -1.00

NEW SUBTOTAL: 8.95 (does this still seem high to you? KEEP READING!)

Go ahead and pay for your purchase. Your receipt will print out....LOOK AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RECEIPT! You should have a Coupon on there that says "Here is your Extra Bucks reward for having purchased select Baby Products: $10.00 EXTRA BUCKS". What is this, you ask? It's MONEY!!! You will use this on your next purchase just like cash! This essentially makes what you just bought FREE (you spent 8.95 and got back 10.00!)!

So, what to do with those lovely extra bucks.....this is how you become a CVS'er! You use these on other deals that will produce more Extra Care Bucks! Most Extra Care Bucks offers are limited -- for instance, you can only do the baby product deal once....other deals may have a limit of 3 or 4 or 5 (or more!).

You did it!!! Now, if you are feeling spunky you can turn around and "flip" or "roll" those extra bucks. Take your stuff out to your car and head back into CVS with your Extra Care Bucks coupon. This one is easy! Go to the eye care area of CVS and find the Contact Lens Solutions. The COMPLETE MULTI-PURPOSE SOLUTION is on sale for 8.99. It's the 12 FL OZ. package. The one I got has a Free Lens Case inside the box.

Head up to the register and grab one Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and one Stride Shift Gum. The Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are on sale for 2/1.00 (.50 only need one) and the Stride Shift Gum is .99.

Take your items to the cashier -- make sure they scan your extra care card. You should have the following:

Complete Multi-Purpose Lens Solution: 8.99
Reese's Peanut Butter Cups: .50
Stride Shift Gum: .99


Note: you bought the reese's peanut butter cups to get your total over 10.00!

HERE'S THE BEST PART: LOOK AT YOUR RECEIPT! You should have 2 coupons on the receipt. One is an Extra Bucks for 8.99 for buying the Contact Lens Solution and one is an Extra Bucks for .99 for buying the Stride Shift Gum!

You just got this order basically free (.48) and you got 9.98 back in Extra Care Bucks again! See how this is working? You just keep buying items that produce Extra Bucks (ideally, you buy items that give you back at least what you had or more).

Whew! You are doing great. Just put these new Extra Bucks in your wallet, purse, etc and save them for next week. I'll be posting what to use them on next. There is often extra buck deals for toothpaste, toothbrushes, razors, feminine products, shampoos, lotion, snacks, and more!

By the way...if you did both of those deals today you got 46.40 worth of stuff for 9.43 out of your pocket.....and you still have 9.98 worth of Extra Bucks for the next trip!!! more thing and we are done for today....using coupons on items that are Buy One Get One Free. I emailed CVS to make sure and YOU CAN USE A COUPON ON BOTH ITEMS! Also, for future deals -- if you have a Buy one Get One coupon for something and it is already on sale for Buy One Get can use the coupon! The email also covers the use of internet printed coupons! If the cashier gives you a hard time you just show them the email! Here is the email I received from CVS (you can copy it to your word processor and print if you want to):

Thank you for contacting CVS/pharmacy. I am in receipt of your e-mail on wanting to know if you can use two coupons on buy one get one free sale. I have included for you our coupon policy.

Our registers are set to allow one CVS coupon and one manufacturer coupon per item. However, the staff should be allowing customers to use Extra Bucks in combination with other CVS coupons since these are coupons you have “earned.”

In addition, they should be allowing the use of one “offer at the register” coupon which would be an open offer of $3 off of $15 or a certain dollar amount off of a specific item. Since our registers are programmed to only accept two coupons (one CVS, one manufacturer) per item if the number of coupons exceed the items purchased a member of management will need to assist the cashier in processing the coupons.

CVS/pharmacy will accept coupons printed from the Internet. They must have a legible barcode that scans at the register. If the coupon does not scan at the register, the cashier should politely inform you that we are unable to accept your coupon. We do not allow manual overrides at the register for coupons printed from the Internet. CVS/pharmacy will not accept offers printed from unauthorized internet postings or reproductions, copies, or facsimiles.

When an item is on sale for buy one, get one free and the customer has a buy one get one free coupon for that same product, the coupon will be accepted and both items will essentially become free (plus any applicable sales tax).

Also, two manufacturer coupons can be used on a buy one get one free purchase as long as two items are scanned at the register. The system logic sees two items scanned and will allow two coupons.

Again, thank you for contacting us. We value your patronage and look forward to serving you again soon.

Enough for did great!

Free Reese's Peanut Butter Cups

Good Morning!

How about some Free Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!? If you still have your coupon from a few weeks ago for .55 off Dark Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (the coupon will work on the regular ones, too!), head over to Fry's (Or Basha's tomorrow for an even better deal). At Fry's today they are regularly .79 and the coupon will double making them FREE. At Basha's tomorrow, they go on sale 2 for 1.00. If you get lucky, they will just double the coupon making both of them free! Don't have a Basha's or a Fry's??? You can take these coupons to any store that doubles (or triples!) coupons and get your Reese's Cups for free. If your store doesn't double, just do a little price shopping (or wait for a sale)...many stores put them on sale for .50 and with the coupon they will still be free (check Wal-Mart!). Don't have the coupon? Well, if you love Reese's Peanut Butter Cups then it would be worth it for you to get some on ebay. I purchased 20 coupons for 2.00. For me, 20 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (actually, 40 since there's 2 in a package!) is worth 2.00! Just go to ebay and do a search for Reese's Coupon.

Enjoy the Peanut Butter Cups!!!

Two new great Mail In Rebates

Hello Everyone,

Hope you all had a great Easter! Time to get back to the couponing!

If you aren't into Mail In Rebates (MIR's), you should be! You are most likely buying the stuff anyways....why not get something back? If you are new to MIR''s the basics:

1. Buy exactly what is stated.
2. Make a copy of your form, receipt(s), and UPC's.
3. Check the fine print....if the rules say to send in your "receipt(s)" then you can make your purchases in more than one transaction (buy one item from one store, and another from a different store). If the rules say to send in your "receipt"...this generally means everything must be purchased in one transaction.

So, here's two MIR's -- both for products you probably buy anyways!

1. SWIFFER REFILLS - 10.00 REWARD CARD - limit one per household ( family and want more? Use their name/address if they don't mind)

2. SC JOHNSON - 5.00 BACK when you buy 3 participating products -- Products include Ziploc, Glade, Windex, Pledge, Shout, Scrubbing Bubbles, Fantastik, Drano, Raid, Off, Saran and Nature’s Choice. Limit 3 per household (SWEET!!!)
