Snapfish and My Coke Rewards

Today (Wed 7/27) only you can get 50 free Snapfish prints for only 6 MyCokeReward points. It is usually 50 points on the mycokerewards website. So this is a pretty good deal. (Almost 90% off).

And don't forget that each Wenesday there is a new deal

Back from vacation

HI everybody. Sorry I disappeared for a while. The kids and I took a little road trip to visit family. And for the short time that I had with them, I did not focus my time on couponing. Sorry!!!

And I am very excited to be back. Tops has started a new cycle for the gas points. So I will have some match-ups for that soon. I just got the ad in my hand. It also looks like Rite Aid is doing away with the $3 off $15 coupon?!?!? And I need to start hunting for some deals at Wegmans. Plus I found a new Wegmans coupon insert in the store and I will let you know what was inside with some match-ups.

More posts in the making now! :)

Rite Aid Stop

I know it has been a while since I posted anything about RA. I went today to use about $10 in +ups that were expiring in hope that I could roll them a little.

Here is what I did:

4 Softsoap bodywashes $2.99 each x 4 = $11.96
2 Kids sunglasses - foster & grant and 1 style science
     - these were BOGO 50% off (one was $9.99 and the other $6.99 - or $3.49 after 50% off)

Total was $25.44

I used $3 off $15 from receipt survey
$5 Foster & Grant from July Video Values
$5 off Style Science from July Video Values
$10.38 in +ups

I paid $2.04 plus tax. Then I got back $8 in +ups for the Softsoap. Not great, but not too bad.

I am looking forward to the Pampers deal next week.

How did you do?

Summer Time

I have been really enjoying the summer this year. The deals have been less than impressive and instead of bombarding you with the same stuff you can find at any blog, I have been playing with my kids. It has been great.

I love couponing, but like anything else it is important not to neglect your family. So I have been putting them as my top priority. In addition, I have a tendency to become obsessed with things. Couponing is one of them. I a year or so ago I realized that I was telling my kids to wait and just hold on until mommy is done and why.... so I could get a couple more free tubes of toothpaste??? Well, it was a bit more than that. But to be honest, the kids didn't really care how our stockpile was doing. My babes had no idea we were having money trouble. And I realized that I have to enjoy every second that I can while they are so little and cute.

So I have been spending a bit less time on the internet and more time living on love. I will get back to the deals and I am sorry to anyone that has been searching for them. I will have new Wegmans match-ups for you soon. And Tops this week looked BLAH to me.

How has your summer been going?

Free Shaving Cream at Wegmans

A big thank you to Allison for sharing this one with us: Free Pure Silk shaving cream. It is on sale for $1.49 and there is a $0.80 coupon in the 7/10 RP that came out yesterday. This coupon will double to make it free.

I went to check it out while grocery shopping this morning and my store only had about 3 left. Wegmans is usually pretty good about restocking, but don't be surprised if it is low right now....

Thanks again to Allison!!!

Tops Deals

I am not sure I am even going to drive to Tops this week, unless one of you can convince me otherwise. Tops is pretty far away and very pricey. This is the last week to earn points towards the gas deal. If you do use Tops for most of your shopping, here are some deals to keep in mind:

I again, did not get an ad in the mail or newspaper this week. So please help if there is a great deal I missed.

Kelloggs Cereals $2.50 & Buy 4 get 200 points
there is the $5 off 5 printable
I also printed a $1/2 kelloggs frosted flakes
There were a few $0.70/1 that would double but they were on specific types and I am not sure what is on sale without the ad.
A few General Mills cereal are included here too (Cinn Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, and a few others)
You could use the $1/2 from 6/ insert

(If I do go, this cereal is really the only thing I am interested in this week. My hubby can eat a whole box at a time. I don't like them but the family does.)

There are also a ton of P&G products for sale this week. You get coupons for the following from the June P&G insert. Your coupons amounts will depend on your area.

I don't think that these prices look all that good, but if you need these items, want the gas points, and don't use drug stores you will save some money which is better than nothing.

Wegmans stop

Sorry guys, I have been cery unimpressed with the deals lately. Is there anyone else feeling the same? This stinks because summer time is really the penny pinchin' season for us. So the lack of deals has made it hard.

Here are a couple of splurges that we made this week thanks to coupons:

Kelloggs cereal $2.50 per box
I used $1/1 from the back of Wegmans receipts
makes these boxes $1.50 each
(I also made sure to grab the ones that have the codes - 4 codes gets you $5 prepaid gift card. After the card, it is about $0.25 per box.)

Now an even better deal would be to buy the frosted flakes 2/$5
use 2 coupons from receipts $1/1 for each
use $1/2 from
makes this $2/2 or $1 each and then submit for prepaid card

I think there is a new $5/5 cereal coupon as well that just appeared on I don't have 5 of the register coupons, but it is still a good deal. The boxes are much bigger than the ones that go on sale at the drug stores!!!

I also picked up 2 Turkey Hill Iced Teas. $2.29 each
used $1/2  from old insert
used $1/2 wegmans receipt coupon
makes this $1.29 each
(These were recently on sale and I hadn't gotten a receipt coupon yet and missed it :( My hubby and I love these and I picked them up as a sweet treat for our wedding anniversary. )

Pillsbury Brownie mixes $0.99
There was a $0.40/1 or a $0.50/1 that came out in an insert in June. Depending on what your area got, these could be $0.20 - free after coupon doubles. I had to trade to get them because my area didn't get either coupon.

What have you found lately.

Wegmans: Tic Tacs are free

Well, I told you I would check, and I did. The signs are finally up. And the Tic Tacs are marked down to $0.99, making them free after $1 off coupon.

I did stop at Tops and Rite Aid for a few items. I didn't even get to the Tops ad until Saturday because of some family "situations" like my bathroom and basement flooding and my 2 year old stole my car keys for a day to name a few. It has been a crazy week. And once again I am apologizing for my absence. If anyone wants to know what I picked up I can post a list.
