FREE Morning Star at Target

Target has Morning Star frozen products on sale for $2.99. Here's how to get them for FREE!

First, you will need to go to Safeway before December 31 and head to the frozen food section. There are Morning Star Coupon Books with (5) $2/1 coupons located on the freezer door near the Morning Star products. These coupons expire 12/31/09

Next print out this Target Coupon for $2/2 Morning Star Products (you can print it twice per computer).

Deal Scenario at Target:
Buy (2) Morning Star items $2.99 each = $5.98
Use (2) $2/1 coupons from Safeway (-$4)
Use (1) $2/2 Target Coupon (-$2)
Final Price: 2 for FREE

If you don't use the $2/1 coupons at Safeway, you can print this $1/1 twice and this $1/1, making the final price $2 for 2 or $1 each!

Holy Corn Flakes!

I just love getting FREE stuff, especially cereal. Anyone who knows me well enough knows I'm addicted to cereal. At one point this summer I had over 80 boxes of cereal, mostly from Albertson's Post Cereal Promo. So I was excited to see Safeway has Corn Flakes on sale for $.99 when you buy 4 or more, up to 20.

I headed out to my neighborhood Safeway to find only 3 boxes on the shelf, not enough to get the sale price. So I told the cashier they didn't have enough Corn Flakes for the deal and she gave me a rain check! This is good for 90 days so I'm sure I will find even more deals between then to use it!

Later that night I went to another Safeway on Main St. to check their stock. They had plenty and I was able to finally to the deal!

Look what I got:

6 boxed Corn Flakes (.99 each when you buy 4+, max 20)
1 Sargento Sliced Cheese ($2.99)

(6) $1/1 Kellogg's Corn Flakes (Found a coupon in one of the recent All You Magazines, and from a Sunday insert expires 12/20)
(1) $.55/1 Sargento Cheese from All You Magazine
(4) Safeway Doubles
Paid $2.38 and saved 89%
That's less than the price of the cheese!!!

My plan from the get go was to get FREE stuff to donate to shelters in need. I will post a picture of my donations once I get them together!

FREE Sunkist at Safeway--Last day

Saturday 11/21 is the last day you can get 3 Sunkist 2-liters for $.07 at Safeway.
7-up product 2-liters on sale 3 for $1.
Here's what you do:
Buy 2 Sunkist (diet or regular) 2-liters
Buy 1 other participating 7-up product 2-liter
Use $1/1 coupon in the 11/15 SS
Pay $.07
I went to Longview Safeway and they wouldn't let me double my $1 Sunkist coupon.
I bought (3) 2-liters and a $.50 water bottle filler.
I handed over my double coupon and the cashier said I couldn't use it because she couldn't give me the water free. Am I missing something here? I still would have paid $.07 for everything. The whole point of using coupons and doubles is to pay as little as possible, sometimes nothing.
Oh well, can't complain about nearly free soda!

Kleenex Stockpile from Safeway

What a SUPER awesome deal on Kleenex at Safeway. I guess the sale was going on for a while, but I just hit it up after my mom did it and told me about it. This promo ENDS tomorrow 10/9 Go here to get the details

I bought 15 boxes Kleenex 110 ct. on sale for $.99 each
Paid $4.05
I should have received a $3 catalina to use on my next trip, but it didn't print. It printed out no problem the first 4 times, but not this last transaction so I will be calling Catalina to get my money.

If your catalina didn't print at any store for any sale, you can call Catalina and they will mail you what you should have got. You will need your receipt.
Don't be afraid to demand what is owed to you. Or you can always return the items and get your money back, but what fun is that?

I called for my first time on Monday because I didn't receive my $10 catalina for buying 8 Joint Juices. But the line was busy and I ended up leaving a voicemail. It's Thursday evening and no returned call. BUT, DON'T LET THAT STOP YOU FROM CALLING, GET PAID!......I'm going to try, try again!

My mom's friend called and had NO problem and she received her catalina very fast.

Here's the number to Catalina 1-888-826-8766

Post Selects Stockpile

Oh my, what a stockpile I have now! Today I hit up 2 Albertsons stores to get as many Post Select Cereals as I could. Total of 36 boxes.

My Kraft Promo Purchase

I was debating on whether or not to do this promo because I don't really need any of the products and my Out of Pocket (OOP) Price was going to be close to $10. It's funny that I think $10 is too much money to pay OOP, but the rewards are worth it.

I paid $14.27 OOP and got $6 in Catalinas to spend on my next purchase and a $20 Mail-In Rebate.

Saved $35.90

Steve bought cat food and Snickers in this transaction, so I would have only paid $10.00 OOP.

This will be a $15+ Money Maker once I get my rebate!!!

Albertsons Round 2 Today!

I wasn't sure if this was going to work because all of the Vaseline Intensive Care Lotions were gone and these were the only ones left. I asked the cashier if she knew if these were part of the promo, but we didn't see it in the ad, but I was pretty sure it would work. She said if it didn't work that she would have the manager make it work.

Well, it worked!

I paid $3.02 & got $18 to spend on my next purchase + a General Mills Cereal Coupon $2.00 off of 5 boxes of cereal!!!!

Saved $54.20

I'm in serious need of storage and shelving for my growing stockpile because my small pantry is full!!! The cereal & pasta sauce and a lot of other stuff will have to go in my guest bedroom until I figure out where to store them.

Albertsons Again

I hit Albertsons again today after work for the Buy $30, Get $15 Promotion. I felt and still feel, if you have a lot of coupons for the same item and its part of a good promo, use ALL of them up. In this transaction I used up the rest of my Ragu and All coupons I got from 7 Sunday (8/2) papers.

Total spent $6.58 and got $15 to spend on my next transaction!
Saved $52.53
