Country Market Steals 7/25/11!

There were some great steals to be discovered at Country Market today that you can snatch up before the sale ends tomorrow (some don't end tomorrow but I'll repost them later this week) including $.50 Ice Cream Cones and FREE Our Family Soda! :)  Check out the list below for more details.  Remember, Country Market (Polly's) doubles Manufacturer's coupons up to $.50! 

A word of warning on the Prairie Farms coupons though...some stores may not take them because they aren't Bricks printable coupons (and also you can print them as many times as you want if you change the number of copies when prompted to is okay and legit to do on this coupon, it even lets me go back in and print more after I printed them already)...I didn't have a problem in Brooklyn but I got a nice cashier...normally they hassle me at that store even though I've spoke with corporate before and complained about this, this is a YMMV (Your Mileage/Manager May Vary) situation which means you may or may not be able to pull it off.  Worse comes to worse though they say no so I'm always willing to try and if they say no, I call corporate lol! :)

Monday Freebies

After some scouring, here is a list of free samples and coupons for you to enjoy today.  I recommend changing the settings on your browser so that you don't have to keep typing your name in forms.  If using Firefox, go to Tools, then Options, and under the Privacy tab, click the box that says "Remember Search and Form History".  If using Internet Explorer, go to Tools, Internet Options, and under the Content tab there is a heading that says "AutoComplete"; click on Settings next to that and click the box "Use AutoComplete for: Forms".  Click "Ok" twice to exit and you may need to restart your browser for the settings to take effect.  Now every time you fill out a form, the information will start storing in AutoComplete or Form History so that your info will pop up in a drop-down box for most forms (depending on the format).  If you delete your form history, this info will restart so make sure if you have Firefox, you don't have the setting "Clear history when Firefox closes" checked under the same Tools>Options>Privacy tab and make sure that history is remembered for however long you want to keep the info.  Mine I have set to 30 days.

Without further ado, here's your freebie list for today! :)  I've tested most of them and they are still active, so hurry before they are all gone!

-EAS Sports Product: will prompt you to register and print a coupon for $3.00 off of any EAS Product
-Kellogg's Frosted Mini Wheats Fruit in the Middle sample: if you're a member of Vocalpoint (if not, you can register for free)
-Breve Cream Coffee Creamer sample: another one if you're a member of Vocalpoint (join for free, login and then come back and click on this link if you aren't)
-Dove For Men free sample
-Shout Color Catcher sample
-PowerBar ProteinPlus Bites sample
-Emergen-C Vitamin Drink sample
-Gas X Prevention sample

I'll add to the list as I find more! :)

Polly’s Country Market Matchups 3/16-3/22

Polly’s Country Market Match-ups 3/16-3/22

*last updated 3/21/11*

There are some good coupon match-ups this week at Polly’s Country Market.  Polly’s doubles manufacturer’s coupons up to $.50 and does take internet printed coupons.  However, I’ve had mixed results (only at the Brooklyn location) when using coupons without a bubble code (I think that Red Plum and/or Smartsource are the only printables other than company-issued that don’t have the bubble code anymore).  Otherwise, I haven’t ever had a problem there.  I haven’t noticed a limit on how many coupons double in an order, either, unlike Meijer (who doubles only 2 like coupons per transaction) and Kroger (who doubles 3 like coupons in a transaction).  Here are the best deals that I’ve found this week and the coupons to go with them if applicable.  Free items in red, stock up prices are in orange, good time to buy coupons are in green, and regular sale price range are left in black.  All sales won’t be covered, just the really good ones!  Happy shopping!

Learning to Shop Walgreen's

If you make good use of your resources, you can really save a great deal of hard-earned money by shopping at Walgreen’s.  Walgreen’s has a Register Rewards program where Register Rewards (like coupons) print out when you make a purchase that you can use like cash (with some restrictions).  If you use them right and with coupons, you can really add up the savings fast.  There are a few rules though.

1)      Number of Coupons = Number of Items.  The number of coupons and RR’s (Register Rewards) in a single transaction must be equal to the number of items purchased.  For example, say you are buying one toothpaste, 2 deodorants and have a coupon for each of them or three coupons total.  Since you are buying three items, if you want to use a Register Reward to bring your total OOP (out of pocket) cost down, you would need what is called a “filler” item.  This item will allow you to have the same number of coupons as items.  Generally, I will post prospective filler items in the deals for the current week since there are usually a number of items under a $1 that you can use as fillers.  Ideally, you want to have as little cost as possible, so the cheaper the filler item, the better!  A word to the wise, however.  I don’t recommend buying fillers you aren’t going to use.  I like to use the Royal Gelatin a lot because the kids love it or the seasonal stickers, coloring books, candy, etc. that Walgreen’s stocks.

2)      Use filler items.  Your total coupons must equal less than the cost of all of your items BEFORE tax.  This means if you have a $5 RR and $5 in coupons and your total before tax is $9:99 or under, you won’t be able to use the $5 RR in that transaction.  My advice?  Try adding something cheap like a possible “filler” item to your transaction to bring the cost up if it’s close.  If not, save the RR for another time! J

3)      Do multiple transactions.  This is a YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary) situation.  Recently, I was told at one of the Jackson, MI Walgreen’s that I was limited to two RR items (which I usually only buy one or two anyway), but when I called them, they said it depends on what the manager says.  If they want to limit they can, however, this is the only time in over a year of shopping at Walgreen’s I’ve been told that there is a limit (and FYI it’s only the male cashier there that gives me a difficult time).

4)      Keep a copy of Walgreen’s Coupon Policy on you while shopping.  You can find it here.  Although I’ve never had to use it, there will be a time when you just might have to.  You never know.

5)      Ask for a manager.  If you think that you are right about a coupon being for a certain item, you’re being treated rudely, your RR doesn’t print, or you think anything is incorrect while checking out, don’t be afraid to ask for a manager.  They are there for this reason!  Most are friendly and want to help you as much as you want to be helped.

6)      Stay positive!  My best piece of advice for shopping in general is that you STAY POSITIVE!  Getting defensive and arguing about something most likely will not only make the cashier/manager question you and bring unwanted attention to the deals you are getting (it’s best to fly under the radar most of the time), but it will make you upset and feel cheated or angry as well.  Just remember, the nicer you are, the more likely you are to get a positive result when dealing with managers and cashiers.

7)      When all else fails, call Corporate.  Although I don’t recommend only calling corporate (1-800-WALGREENS in this case) for negative experiences, definitely utilize the customer service line when you need to.  If a store isn’t following corporate policy, someone was rude to you, etc., call and report it!  I try to again use this as a last resort because I like to stay unnoticed, but if the situation warrants, I will call to make things right.

Swagbucks is AWESOME!

Don't forget to sign up for Swagbucks (linked)!  Since December alone, I've racked up $50 in gift cards to use! :)  It comes in handy when you need some diapers for the little ones or a book to keep your sanity.

All you have to do is go here to sign-up.  Afterwards, you can search, print coupons, take a daily poll, choose offers, etc. to rack up the Swagbucks!  I ALWAYS print my bricks coupons from because you earn 10 Swagbucks for every coupon you use!  An $5 gift card is only 450 SB (Swagbucks) so after using only 45 coupons you have yourself a $5 gift card.  That might sound like a lot but believe me it isn't.

So what are you still here for?  Go sign-up!

Hiatus is Over

So it's been sporadic at best posting on here.  Hoping to end that very shortly since the whole family has been sick for a month now.  Seems like the little ones are finally better so I'll try to keep up with the best deals that I find out there still! :)  Happy shopping!
