Coupon Inserts this Week!

April 30, 2010

This Sunday’s paper should have 3 inserts, the Red Plum, Smart Source and the P&G. It is a good week to get multiple papers!

If you are in Houston, Nick confirmed that the Sunday only delivery for $1 is still going, in fact they have told them to not put a stop date on it! The only limit is that you can only lock in that rate for 52 weeks. No limit on the number of papers either!

So, if you want your papers delivered to your door for only $1 give them a call! 713-220-7211

Costco: Shopping without a membership!

April 29, 2010

Julia sent this great post she wrote about shopping at Costco without a membership. I thought it might be of interest to many of you. My Costco is pretty far away and I might only get out there once a year. So I have no reason for a membership. Plus, I have dropped my Sam’s membership because I can do MUCH better couponing than the deals I get there. BUT, I do like the merchandise at Costco and it is fun to go. SO I am going to have to try Julia’s advice and give it a try!

I had heard this from many people so I decided to go into Costco yesterday to verify it, sure enough it’s true! I asked at the customer service desk if this was true and the lady said absolutely and began to tell me the ins & outs. It was verified by several people behind the counter as she asked them for a few specific details.

Here is how you do it:

Purchase a Costco Cash Card (gift card) at the Customer Service desk, must be a minimum of $10.00. Use that gift card as your “member’s card” to get into the store. Shop as you normally would. When you go to pay, you pay first with your gift card but any remaining balance must be paid with cash or debit (no American Express). That’s it! You’ve just shopped at Costco for free and saved the $50 a year membership fees. Of course you don’t get the Costco Member benefits, cheap gas, etc but your items are still protected under Costco’s very generous return policy.

Of course my latest experience at Costco was shocking. The prices most assuredly did NOT make great deals. There were a few excepti0ns but for the most part shopping the sales with coupons and stocking up when the prices are rock bottom was a far better deal. Just remember Bulk is NOT always Better. I realize America has become ingrained in that myth, but it’s not true.

UPDATE: I’ve learned that you CAN buy gas with a cash card and you can also purchase liquor and use the pharmacy to fill prescriptions, all without a membership! We will absolutely be buying gas there again!


Kroger: Deals for the week! April 28th

April 29, 2010

Kroger deals this week are O.K. it would be a good week to take your coupons and wander through the store using up any that might be expiring. I use all my $.50 and under coupons at Kroger. They will double and triple here making the deals better than Walmart or anywhere else. Anything over $.50 I save for Walmart.

I listed a few of my favorite deals first….

Wheaties Fuel is priced from .99-$1.99 and when you buy 4 you get $4 catalina back. Here are a few coupons to help make this deal a MONEY MAKER! (Thanks Courtney!)

Wheaties Fuel: .99-$1.99
.75/1 Printable
.75/1 Printable
Upload ecoupon here .75/1
Final Price: Free + money maker with catalina!

Second great deal:
If you need or take Prevacid this is the time to get it from Kroger. It is currently $10.99 (starting tomorrow) Here is how it works:
Prevacid 14 ct. $10.99
ECoupon $6/1
4/11SS $6/1
Final Price: varies but mostly FREE!
If the $6 ecoupon comes off with the $6 from 4/11SS, you would make $1.01!!!

Third Deal:

I do this one all the time. I give these out like crazy in June for Father’s Day! Stock up now! McCormick Grill Mates Seasoning Packets (1 oz) – $1.00

Use $1.00 Q from 4/25 RP
Final cost is FREE!

Kroger has a 10 for $10 right now, to see all the deals go HERE.
