Mail Call! Staples and Kmart

I got my ink rewards from Staples today. I recycle my ink cartridges at Staples and receive $3 for each one. You can recycle up to 10 each month for rewards, but Staples will recycle any beyond that too (just no rewards). You must be a member of Staples Rewards, but it is so worth it if you go through as much paper and ink as I do.

I also got a letter from Kmart. Inside was a coupon for a $10 gift card with a new or transferred prescription. These coupons are a good way to get "free" money for something you already have to have. I actually got a $10 gift card at Kmart earlier this week using a coupon from their weekly ad. These coupons are also periodically available at Target, Rite Aid, CVS, and Walgreens; CVS even accepts competitor coupons! A Walgreens prescription gift card is how I started out using Register Rewards, I used it as seed money. Please note that insurance and other factors can affect whether you are eligible for a gift card.

Publix ---- saved 94%

As I said in my earlier post, I went shopping with a friend this week. I brought coupons for both of us. She was able to save about 50%! I gave her some of the stuff I bought too; I got out so cheap it would be criminal not to share! :)

Trip summary:
I bought 5lbs of Publix sugar (.01), 4 boxes of Special K, 2 Sobe water, 5 Knox Gelatin, 1 Heinz Ketchup, 2 French's mustard, Marzetti dip, 4 packs of Ball Park Franks, 2 packs of Smithfield bacon, 2 Heluva Good dip, and a special birthday surprise. I did get overage from the Knox and French's, but most of the savings were from BOGO and double coupons. We also got a senior discount because it was Wednesday.

Total before savings: 65.02
Total out of pocket: 4.10
saved 94% ---- our pre-tax total was $1.41, I wish Tennessee did not have such a high food tax

Walgreens ---- saved 96%!

Earlier this week, I went to shopping with a friend at Bi-lo, Publix, Earth Fare, and Walgreens. It was lots of fun, but extremely tiring.

I needed a couple of things at Walgreens, so I had a list, but we also raided the clearance section. I didn't have coupons for those items, but we saved about 50% on those items anyway.  It's always a good idea to check the clearance section!

Trip summary:
I bought 2 boxes of Osteo Bi-flex, 5 tubes of Sensodyne, 2 Bayer Breeze2 meters, 1 J&J bodywash(just $4!), 22 bars of soap (in 3 multipacks), 2 lipgloss, chips, eye drops, a hairnet, and about 10 filler items. I did three transactions to maximize my savings and Register Rewards.

Total before savings and Register Rewards: 283.55
Total out of pocket: 10.45
saved 96% ---- My friend went home with all the clearance items (it's good to shop with me :) ).

Rush Trip to Walgreens ---- saved 94%!

I've been out of town all day today and wasn't planning to do more shopping till next week. However, when I got home, I read on IHeartWags that there was a great deal at Walgreens: a $5 on your next order (OYNO) coupon with a purchase of $25+ at select 24-hour Walgreens.

I called up a friend who has just started couponing to meet me at the store. She didn't need $25 worth of stuff, but she did pick me up some coupons from the Atlanta Journal Constitution (yay!).

I got so much stuff that it was spilling out of the cart! I just kept trying to stuff more in there! Sorry about the lack of pictures, but it is horrible weather here and I didn't want to get wet taking pics.

Trip summary:
I got 12 boxes of cereal, 5 boxes of trash bags, 2 bottles of cooking oil, lip gloss, eye drops, and some filler items. I did two transactions to maximize my Register Reward usage and to get two $5 OYNO coupons.

Total before savings and RR: 115.52
Total out of pocket: 6.78
saved 94% ----- my friend was able to get some candy on clearance that spit out a $1RR (Hershey Bliss)

(Thanks, IHeartWags!)

Mail Call! Staples, Lego, & Tigi

Lego Club sent me my first FREE issue today. It even has 3D glasses! I was glad to see this because I signed up a few years ago and never received anything. Get your own or your child's own free subscription here.

I also got a surprise package from Tigi today. A few months ago, they were giving away FREE Bed Head "Girls Just Want It" Lipstick sampler with 10 different lipsticks. I didn't post the deal on here, because their site got slammed with requests and I got an error everytime I tried to enter my info. I do my best not to post dead or non-working deals on this blog. Apparently, one of my entries got through. This deal has happened before and I will post it next time.

$10 Bonus Bucks with select Kellogg cereal purchase

This deal is pretty simple: just buy 3 specially marked boxes of Kellogg's Mini-wheats, All Bran, or Raisin Bran to send in codes for a $10 rebate. These "bonus bucks" are usable in certain stores (see list here). There is a great $1.50/2 coupon available for the above cereals at (print it twice). There's also time to wait for a sale because this offer doesn't end until September 30.

**I'll be honest, I've never had any lucks with this type of deal before. I'm lucky if I can track down ONE specially marked box. However, I am more hopeful about this one: the deadline is long and four different cereals are eligible. Your experience may vary.**
