Save with Certificates

Yesterday we celebrated my son's birthday at one of our favorite pizza places - Angelo's in South St. Paul, MN.

Previously I had purchased a certificate to put towards our bill.

The requirements? Spend $50 on your meal and use only one certificate.

What a savings! I printed the certificate right from home after I made the purchase and could use it immediately.

I highly recommend checking If you find a restaurant you frequent often, it's worth buying certificates.
BONUS: through August 31st, you can get a $25 gift certificate for $4! Just enter promo code LABOR at checkout. Hurry!

Rumor is they are going to be changing these coupons this weekend. So print the ones you want now!!

E-Mail Address - Get a 2nd (and 3rd?)

Signing up for freebies and coupons online is fun......but the junk e-mail that seems to come along with it.....isn't.

I recommend G-Mail if you are needing a 2nd or 3rd address.

Then, use this alternate address when you sign up for offers and freebies online.

Keep your primary account clean!

The Couponizer - All The Rage!

I have just purchased the Couponizer and can't wait till it arrives!

It includes coupon pockets to help organize your coupons and sleeves to keep your store cards (like CVS) in. It also has a "Coup Stacker" which helps you divide coupons into categories for easy-finding in the future.

For $19.95, it seems like a great system for the seasoned coupon-er as well as the newbie. It's easy to get overwhelmed with clipping coupons and figuring out how to find the ones you need WHEN you need them.

Want to find out more? Click the box below!

Coupon Clipping Services

I discovered The Coupon Master a little while back. It seems weird to be PAYING for coupons, but sometimes it's definitely worth it. For instance, we drink a lot of Powerade around here.

Recently I purchased 30 Powerade coupons for $.75 off/32oz.

The coupons were $.10 each.

My total was $3.92 after shipping and admin. fee. (you have to spend $3.00)

The Powerades were on sale at Walmart for $.60 that week. I bought 30 for $18.00. My coupons totaled $22.50 off.


Price: $18.00 for 30 Powerades
Coupons: $22.50
Paid for coupons: $3.92
= -$.58 total

So I actually made money by buying the coupons. 30 Powerades for $-.58 - I'll take that anyday!

CVS - ExtraCare Card

Don't have a CVS ExtraCare Card yet? You can easily sign up in the store or you can do it online. Your card will be mailed to you in 1-2 weeks.

There are so many benefits that come with this card:

- Once a quarter, they give you Extra Care Bucks (ECBs) for 2% of all purchases made (ECBs are the same as cash to be used at any CVS store.
- You get $1 ECBs for every two prescriptions purchased
- There are monthly ECB deals every week - some items are even free after ECBs (meaning, sometimes you buy an item for say, $5.00, and you get $5.00 back in ECBs!)
- Coupons are often found in local newspapers or e-mail for an additional amount off your purchase.
- Coupons are often available for a free gift card wih any new or transferred prescription. They accept competitor's pharmacy coupons too.

I have gotten $110 in gift cards to CVS since I started CVS-ing in June 2008. This is purely for transferring prescriptions that I already had set-up someplace else.

Sign up
HERE for an ExtraCare Card. Have fun!
