CVS Right Guard Moneymaker Next Week

It's the end of the month, so don't forget to print those coupons that you want before they disappear tonight! I'm already starting to see some new coupons out there (like the Old El Paso ones).

While you're there, be sure to print out the $1.00 coupon for Right Guard. Right Guard will be on sale next week at CVS for $2.49 and you'll get back a $2.00 Extra Care Buck for each one you buy (limit 2). With the coupon, you'll make a $0.50 profit on each one!

(Thanks, Slick Deals!)

UPDATED! Hy-Vee Old El Paso Catalina Deal

Remember my earlier post about the Old El Paso deal at Hy-Vee? I ended it with a wish that we could get some coupons for these and it's come true! Coupons.com has just released a $0.60 off 2 coupon for Old El Paso products (excluding refrigerated, frozen or soup products). If you don't see the coupon, try using zip code 40004.

So let's rework my scenario:

Deal Scenario 1: (simple)
Buy 3 OEP seasoning mixes at $0.69 each = $2.07
Use the $0.60 off 2 printable coupon
Final Total: $1.47 and get back a $1.00 Catalina for chicken or beef

Deal Scenario 2: (more complicated!)
Buy OEP taco shells, $0.99
Buy 2 OEP Heat and Serve beans or rice at $1.38 each = $2.76
Buy 3 OEP seasoning mix packets at $0.69 each = $2.07
Use three $0.60 off 2 printable coupons (you'll need 2 computers)
Final Total: $4.02 and get back a $3.00 Catalina

If you found the peelies last year for "buy 2 get 1 FREE" or "FREE seasoning mix when you buy 2 Oel El Paso products", you can do even better. How about this:

Deal Scenario 3: (simple)
Buy 3 OEP seasoning mixes at $0.69 each = $2.07
Use the $0.60 off 2 coupon
Use the "buy 2 get 1 FREE" or "FREE seasoning mix" coupon
Final Total: $0.78 and get back a $1.00 Catalina for chicken or beef

Deal Scenario 4: (more complicated!)
Buy 2 OEP taco shells, $0.99
Buy 2 OEP Heat and Serve beans or rice at $1.38 each = $2.76
Buy 2 OEP seasoning mix packets at $0.69 each = $1.38
Use two $0.60 off 2 printable coupons (you'll need 2 computers) AND
Use two "buy 2 get 1 FREE" or "FREE seasoning mix" coupons
Final Total: $3.54 and get back a $3.00 Catalina

The possibilities are endless!

Pizza Pie, Get Your Pizza Pie Here


My mouth is watering just looking at that picture because I didn't have time to eat lunch today. Oh well.....there are a couple of pizza coupons that I wanted to clue you in on - one of them could be a moneymaker!

  1. Red Baron is offering a $2.00 coupon for their new Pizza By The Slice product over on their Facebook page. (You have to "like" them to get to the coupon, so you need a Facebook account.) The normal retail for this is $3.49, so this is a great Q!

    And, even better, there was a "Try Me Free" rebate form for this in the 4/25 Smart Source insert. Use the coupon and then submit for the rebate and you should come out $2.00 ahead. (I'd suggest buying from a store that doesn't list the coupons right under the product purchased. Sometimes the manufacturers will open give you a rebate for the actual amount you paid if you used a coupon on the purchase.)

  2. The DiGiorno $3.00 coupon for their pizza and breadsticks products is still available. We tried these for $2.99 after coupon and they're good. I love DiGiorno (it's my favorite frozen pizza), but these aren't as good as their Ultimate Toppings pizzas.

Hy-Vee: Old El Paso Catalina Deal

Cinco de Mayo is fast approaching, so it's not surprising to see sales on products from Taco Bell or Old El Paso. What I *am* surprised about, however, is that there don't seem to be any coupons to go along with the nationwide Catalina deal on Old El Paso products. Through 5/16/10, just purchase any Old El Paso taco shells, dinner kits, seasoning, refried beans or Heat and Serve beans or side dishes and you'll get back a Catalina for $1.00 off beef (when you buy 3 to 5 products) or $3.00 off beef or chicken (when you buy 6 or more).

Right now, Old El Paso products are on sale at Hy-Vee:

  • Old El Paso taco shells or refried beans, $0.99
  • Old El Paso seasoning mix, $0.69
  • Old El Paso Heat and Serve Fiesta Rice or Beans, $1.38
Combine the sale with the Catalina deal and your family could have a pretty inexpensive mexican fiesta meal! Here's a couple of scenarios for you:

Deal Scenario: (simple)
Buy 3 OEP seasoning mixes at $0.69 each = $2.07
Final Total: $2.07 and get back a $1.00 Catalina for chicken or beef

Deal Scenario 2: (more complicated!)
Buy OEP taco shells, $0.99
Buy 2 OEP Heat and Serve beans or rice at $1.38 each = $2.76
Buy 3 OEP seasoning mix packets at $0.69 each = $2.07
Final Total: $5.82 and get back a $3.00 Catalina

Then turn around and use the $3.00 Catalina to buy your chicken or beef. There are no great deals on the 1 lb packages (chicken and ground chuck are around $2.77). However, if you're not scared of a lot of hamburger, the 3 lb packs are ground beef are $4.98. So, after coupon, you'd get it for just $0.66 per pound! And you can always break it into 1-lb packs and freeze it if you can't use it all at one. You could also use this later on a smaller package and get overage to use on another product if you wanted (e.g., buy a $1.50 package of beef and you'd have $1.50 that would apply to something else, like milk!)

These aren't incredible deals like we had last year, so now let's hope for some coupons to come out soon to make this even sweeter!

For a list of the current nationwide Catalina deals, see my earlier post here.

In the Mail this Week

It's been kind of a slow mail week this week, but there were a couple of goodies in my mailbox. What'd the mailman bring you?

Redplum weekly mailer

Do you get these in the mail? This week's Redplum newspaper had some great Q's in it, so don't just throw it out! There was a $0.40 coupon for Colgate toothpaste, Palmolive, Colgate Wisp, Irish Spring bar soap or body wash, Suavital or Fabuloso (expires 5/31). And a little coupon booklet with Frappe coupons from McDonalds, including 2 coupons for a FREE medium McCafe Frappe with any other purchase (excluding dollar menu) and two $1.00 off coupons for Frappe. These also expire on 5/31.

Home mailer from Home Depot

Basically a sheet of coupons good at Home Depot only through 5/23/10, including:

  • Spectracide insect killer 128 oz, buy one get one FREE

  • Scott's Turf Builder, $3.00 off 5M bag, $6.00 off 10M bag or $9.00 off 15M bag

  • Kingsford competition briquettes or mesquite briquettes, $2.00 off

  • Clorox Pro Results Outdoor Bleach 32 oz or larger, $2.00 off
Home Mailer from Bank of America with Mastercard offers

I just looked at these and they are NOT Bank of America specific, so you can take advantage of these if you have any Mastercard. All offers are valid through June 30, 2010.

  • $10.00 off a 1-800-flowers.com purchase of $39.99 or more when you pay with Mastercard. Use code 8MAST at checkout.

  • 25% off any Loft in-store full-price purchase or an online purchase of $100 or more at loftonline.com when you pay with Mastercard. Use code 106020181 at checkout.

  • 15% off any purchase at World Market or worldmarket.com when you pay with your Mastercard. Use code MCSPRING2 at checkout.

  • 61% off the Celebration Collection from Omaha Steaks when you pay with a Mastercard. Use code AE1518 at checkout. It looks like these are $119 so they would be only $46 with the discount; however a minimum purchase of $59 is required, so you'd also have to buy something else. They do have FREE shipping though.

  • A 15% off coupon for any regular priced item at Best Buy (usual exclusions apply). For this one, you have to have the actual physical coupon and it's not valid on online orders or in-stock pickup.
Kmart Rewards Card

I *finally* got my Shop Your Way Rewards card from Kmart\Sears, after I applied at the beginning of February (hoping it would be here in time for the double coupon event earlier this month.) So much for that idea. ;-)

Rebates

I got a ton of rebate checks in the mail this week: Olay, Kotex, flower purchase and some others that I've already filed, cashed and forgotten about. A couple for DBF came back with problems and I checked and they were filed correctly. So now I have to spend time arguing with them. This is exactly why I make copies of everything before I send it off. I swear, I think the rebate thing is a scam and they just try to find reasons to deny them, hoping you'll go away. Maybe I'm just cynical?

So, since I like rebates so much, I also bought a couple of rebate forms off of Ebay and they showed up just in time. Alot of these are beer\liquor rebates but, here in Missouri, we have a law that says they cannot require the liquor purchase. I think Indiana has the same law. Everybody else, you're gonna have to buy the booze!
  • $6.00 rebate for the purchase of hambuger, chicken, buns, condiments, product, garnishments, salty snacks, deli meat, charcoal, lighter fluid, propane, ice, water and coolers. This one is from Natural Light and expires 5/2/10 (postmark by 5/17). Think it may have been easier for them to put what was NOT included? (Ha!) I'm seeing FREE meat with this one.

    BONUS: Included with this were some other coupons and a $6.00 rebate for fresh or frozen seafood. We're not seafood eaters, so I'm going to be posting a quick giveaway for this later today. The rebate expires 5/2/10 but it doesn't have to be postmarked until 5/17, so the winner will have plenty of time to redeem it.

  • $6.00 rebate for a $10.00 purchase of oranges, fresh fruit or produce. This one is courtesy of Shock Top and expires 5/2.

  • $5.00 off a $5.05 chicken purchase from Magic Hat, expires 4/30/10. Must be postmarked by 5/15.

Incredibly Good News!

I just had to share this with you, because I am absolutely bursting at the seams with excitement. DBF had a second job interview yesterday for a really great company here in KC and they offered him the job on the spot! Even though it's a white collar job, he'll get to wear shorts and jeans (no more expensive business casual clothes) AND he's getting a $9,000 raise. That will go a long way toward our push to get completely out of debt.

Holy cow! I'm so proud of him......

CVS Trippin': CVS Sunscreen Profit

I headed out after work yesterday to see if I could find any of the CVS Sunblocks that I posted about earlier. I wanted to roll some ECBs while I had the chance this week and the small profit didn't hurt either. I was surprised to find 4 of them, since it looked like a plague of locusts had gone through the regular sunscreen section. So I snagged all 4 of them. First transaction on my card:

  • Bought 2 CVS 2 oz Sunblocks at $2.19 each
    Final Price: $4.38 (paid with $4.49 ECB) and got back a $5.00 ECB = $0.51 profit!
That was so much fun that I bought the other two on DBF's card. Total profit = $1.02!

Dove and Degree Deodorant for 2 Cents at Hy-Vee

Go check out Sam's Secrets post for info about a great deal she spotted on Dove and Degree deodorant at her Hy-Vee store in Raytown yesterday. After coupons, they are just 2 cents each!

I didn't see this at my store in Independence, so I'm not sure if it was a special deal at the Raytown store for last week or what. But you might check your store while you're out and about. Thanks, Sam!

Price Chopper Deals April 28th to May 4th



HEADS UP! Don't forget to stop by customer service and get your new Chopper Shopper card! You'll need the new card to take advantage of all the new features and deals.

Price Chopper offers "lowest price guarantee" items in their ads every week, so if you see those items priced lower at a different store, take your ad in and Price Chopper will match the price. I've indicated these for you in the matchups below. You can view the complete ad for this week here and the coupon policy is here.

At some stores (not mine), you can get a $0.05 credit for each reusable bag that you bring in. Additionally, there are some stores in the Kansas City area (like the one I go to in Independence) that DO NOT have Catalina coupon machines at their registers. So if you're counting on a Catalina deal, make sure your store has them first.

Also, don't forget about the Entertainment books with their $5 off $50 and $5 off $75 coupons.

Another Walgreens Moneymaker: Hallmark Cards

Here's another small moneymaker at Walgreens this week. I posted in my coupon matchups for this week about the Hallmark Card deal (buy 8 and get a $5.00 RR). Well, looks like the cheaper $0.49 cent kids cards are working for this! Buy 8 for a total of $3.92 and get back a $5.00 RR = $1.08 profit!

Walgreens: Schick Quattro Titanium Moneymaker!


This doesn't happen very often! There are 2 overlapping Register Rewards deals on the Schick Quattro razors at Walgreens this week:

  1. Get a $1.00 RR when you purchase Schick Disposable 3pk Quattro, 4pk Xtreme3, or 12pk Slim Twin at $5.99 each, and

  2. Get a $3.00 RR when you purchase Intuition Plus or Women’s Quattro or Trim Style at $8.99 each
It's been reported that if you purchase the Schick Disposable 3pm Quattro Titanium for Men (shown in the pic above) for $5.99, you’ll get both Register Rewards! Combine this with a coupon and it's nice, neat little moneymaker.
  • Deal Scenario:
    Buy 1 Schick Disposable 3pm Quattro Titanium for Men = $5.99
    Use the $4.00 coupon from the 3/21 SS
    Final Price: Pay $1.99 and get back a $3.00 RR and $1.00 RR = FREE + $2.01 profit!
If you don’t have the $4.00 coupon, there's a $3.00 coupon in the 3/21 SS or a $2.00 coupon in the 4/11 SS. I'm sure this is NOT supposed to be working like this, so you'll want to hurry and snag this before they catch it and correct it.

(Thanks, Wild4Wags!)

Saying Goodbye to My Digital Past

If you've been with me for awhile, you may have seen me mention that DBF and I are both "computer people" in real life - actually, we both hunt down hackers for a living. So it shouldn't be surprising to hear that we have a ton of old crappy computer equipment hiding in the depths of our house. When I heard that Surplus Exchange was hosting events where you could drop off old electronic relics to be recycled, I just couldn't pass up putting "clean up the basement" on the hunny-do list.

The picture doesn't do this pile justice - there's a 15+ year old tube TV behind that 80-pound laser printer. *sniff* My laser printer that I now have to replace because it permanently thinks there is a paper jam. And it's cheaper to replace it with a new printer than to pay to get it fixed. Which really ticks me off because it was a present from DBF when I was working on my MBA and I bet the darn thing doesn't have more than 1000 pages on it. On the plus side, though, the room looks bigger with it gone and now I can get an all-in-one. (Ha!) Anyway, there's about 12 years of computer history in this picture.

When we got to the drop-off location, it was pouring down rain. That actually worked to our advantage, I think, because the kids unloading the vehicles just grabbed everything and told us to go. We should have had to pay for the monitors and TV, so that saved us about $40.00. Why do they charge for those? Because they have metals in them that have to be recovered safely to prevent them from polluting the landfills. That's why you should never put this stuff in the garbage.

Just a reminder: it's important to physically remove the hard drives from your computers and printers (some have hard drives) or securely wipe the drives before you donate, sell or recycle. Deleting is NOT ENOUGH to erase your personal data. For more information, see my post here or leave a comment if you have a question about how to do this. I'd be happy to help!

Decent Hy-Vee Shopping Yesterday

I had to dance between the raindrops yesterday on my way to Hy-Vee, but I ended up with a pretty good shopping trip. They had Pepperidge Farm cinnamon swirl bread on sale for $2.50 (used the $0.55 coupon) and I have been wanting to try this ever since I saw some folks raving about making french toast with it. Here's what else I picked up:

  • Brummel and Brown, $0.99 (our favorite spread!)
  • Pepperidge Farm cinnamon swirl bread, $1.95
  • Hyvee 1% choco milk, on sale for $1.68
  • 4 Independence Examiner newspapers with coupons, $1.00 each
  • 2 Cherry 7-Up 2-liters, on sale for $1.00 each (used $1.00 printable Q = FREE!)
  • 2 Dole salads, 0.88 each (used $1.00 tearpad = FREE + $0.24 overage!)
  • 85% lean ground beef, on sale for $1.88 (used $1.00 hantag Q = $0.88)
Final total was $11.77, which isn't too bad since I splurged on the milk and the bread. A girl's gotta live sometimes... :-)

Hidden Sunblock Moneymaker at CVS

UPDATE: The aloe variety does NOT work for this deal.

CVS has an Extra Care Bucks deal this week on CVS sunblock where you'll get a $5.00 ECB when you buy 2. The smaller 2 oz tubes are confirmed to work for this deal, and they're priced around $1.99 to $2.19. Limit 1 per card.

  • Buy 2 CVS 2 oz sunblocks at $1.99 each = $3.98
    Get back a $5.00 ECB
    Final Price: FREE + $1.02!
These will be on an endcap, in the travel section, near the pharmacy or possible near the registers, so you may need to hunt for them.

(Thanks, A Full Cup!)

Best of CVS April 25th to May 1st (Crest Profit, FREE Snacks and Body Wash)

Moneymaking Mastermind: Part 2


When we last saw our evil coupon mastermind, she was trying to figure out how to redeem her Olay scenario gone wrong and still profit. Did she do it? *cue evil laugh*

  • 4 Nature's Bounty Vitamin D tablets, $5.49 (buy one get one FREE)
    1 Olay Total Effects moisturizer, on sale for $18.99
    1 Olay Total Effects foaming facial cleanser, $10.99
    Subtotal: $29.97

    - Used the $4 off $20 facial product purchase CVS scanner coupon
    - Used the $3.00 coupon for Olay from the 3/7 PG
    - Used the "FREE facial cleanser wyb TE moisturizer" coupon from the 3/7 PG
    - Used 4 of the Nature's Bounty $5.00 printable coupons

    Final Total: $3.28 and got back a $10.00 ECB for finishing up the Olay Deal (buy $24.99 worth and get a $10.00 ECB). I also returned the Stayfree from the previous transaction and got back $4.08.
Whew! Let's break this evil plan down so that it makes sense:

Transaction 1: Spent $1.49
Transaction 2: Spent $3.28
- Less the $10.00 ECB for buy $24.99 in Olay products
- Less the $20.00 Olay mail-in rebate (when you buy $50 of Olay facial products)

Grand Total: $25.23 profit!

Good thing we've got multiple computers here at home. I just printed off 6 more coupons and am about to go do this again on my card and submit for another rebate under DBF's name. I have to pick up another Halle perfume also, so that's another $5.00 profit.

Total Profit at CVS this week: $53.46!!! This evil mastermind business really pays off!
