Don’t See Facebook Updates? ~ Fix It Now!

Many of you say that a lot of posts don’t show up in your Facebook feed.

A couple ways to fix that . . .

  1.  After “liking” the Bargain Believer Facebook page.  Hover over “Following” at the top of the page and make sure “See First” is checked.
  2. Comment and “like” posts often.  This is almost a guarantee (added to above directions) that you’ll see everything.

If you’re not a Facebook fan, there’s a daily email, Twitter, or an RSS feed you can follow.

If all else fails, check the website each day.  Not many days go by without us updating something.

Please Read This . . . from Juli


I would really appreciate it if you tell others about the Bargain Believer website or Facebook page or daily emails.

The valuable “telling” comes when you specifically track down your friends and tell them they’re missing out because __________.

You fill in the blank with why you’re here.  Hopefully, there’s something we’ve helped you with and you believe someone else can benefit.  Helping people stretch their dollars and realize they may need less than they think to thrive, has been my goal since the day I started.

I didn’t mean to start a business, but realized I could send you to a print a coupon without getting paid or send you to the same one and get paid.  Hmmmm … pay me!  I say I accidentally started a business, but have to purposely pay taxes now.  True story.

This is work.  In reality, I don’t need a job.  I’m spoiled since my husband makes enough to maintain a lifestyle we’re comfortable living, without any income from me.  I often ponder if this website is worth the stress, but then I remember a heartwarming email or comment I received or a new one rolls in at just the right time, to encourage me.  So many of you are counting on me to help you save.  (Insert tears here … really, they’re flowing.  I get emotional about this.)   Sometimes, having this website can overwhelm me, and I want all the responsibility to disappear.  Other times, I can’t imagine life without it, in a good sort of way.   Some of you (most all, really!) have been amazingly supportive over the past 6 1/2 years.

Beyond me, Gina (my amazing helper!) and others along the way, have counted on extra income by helping me.  The reality is, Gina does waaaaay more than I do, for day to day things around here.  Sometimes, I wonder what I even do!  Just keeping up with emails and doing misc. stuff still can consume me, somehow.  But, when I think of quitting, I also think of her … she’s also poured her time/love into this site and the income really helps her family.

This isn’t a doom and gloom post.  I’m not planning on quitting next month, just processing some thoughts “aloud” and asking for your help, in taking some financial worries away.  The truth is that I can’t lose money, especially while also investing so much time in it.  It just doesn’t make sense.  (For the record, I’ve almost always made money.  I don’t want anyone to feel sorry for me!  I’ve just seen revenue drop considerably, over time, even while slowly growing in numbers.  Things are just changing.)

Besides telling your friends, family, and strangers about Bargain Believer, here are a few other specific ways you can help (that aren’t too tortuous, hopefully!)  :)

  • Print your coupons from here — Bookmark it, please!
    There is also a link on the top menu bar on the website.
  • If you do any Amazon shopping, start with our search box on the top left of the page.
    After that, navigate however you want on their site, snagging all the great deals they have!
  • Use any links we provide in posts.
    Some pay us when you buy/print something, others just for clicking.
  • Visit the website often!
    You’re helping in a small way, since you’re viewing Google ads.
    You’re also “telling” Google you love us and they should let our page show up when people search for certain things.

Some of you have been doing this for years.  THANK YOU!  For those of you who had no clue you could help in these ways or any of our back story … now you do.  :)  Thank you for reading all this!

Thanks for Printing Coupons w/ Our Link ~ Please Bookmark This Page

Printing from here (or many links we provide) is a huge help.
If you would bookmark it, we’d be very grateful!
(There’s also a link on the top menu bar of the website.)

I want to thank everyone who uses our links to print your coupons.  Even printing just one coupon every couple days helps keep the revenue coming in, so I can continue to pay people to help me.  Without their help, I definitely would have quit by now.  It’s just too much work for me to do alone.

 For those who don’t print from our links, please consider it, instead of just going directly to Coupons.com.  If everyone who used this site printed just one or two coupons a week … well, we’d be rich and we wouldn’t want to go anywhere, ever!  :)  We earn a small amount, but it sure adds up with all of you doing it!
If you have a spot to bookmark the link below and use it for coupon prints (that we don’t give you a link for), or when you want to browse.  It would really help!
Thank you!

So many of you have signed up for daily emails from Bargain Believer.  Unfortunately, many of you are not getting them.  If you don’t click on the verification link they send you, you won’t get them.  Check your spam!

♥ ♥ Hearts on Lists! ♥ ♥ (Find Best Deals More Easily)

♥ ♥ = We love this deal!  We doubt it will go much lower than this.  Stock up!
♥  = This is a great deal.  If you use this product, get it!

This is pretty self-explanatory, but for those who haven’t noticed yet … we just started adding hearts to the coupon match ups.

As you can imagine, we don’t use every product we have on the lists.  We aren’t 100% sure what a good deal is on everything.  This is just a guideline to get you focused in on some of the best deals.  If you use a lot of something or specifically need a product, it doesn’t mean nothing else on the list is a good deal.  Don’t be afraid of the other deals.  :)

If you ever see something that’s an amazing deal, to you, and we missed marking it … let us know!  We’d love to make sure we highlight it for others, so they don’t miss out.

Hope this makes your life a little easier and helps you save even more!

Mexican Haystacks Recipe ~ Unique Dinner Using Waffles

We have a recipe to share with you.  Becca calls it Mexican Haystacks.  It’s almost too unique, not to try!
.Here’s what she says about it . . ..
“This is a recipe that my grandma used to make all the time when I lived with her in college.  I’m not sure where it came from but I grew up having it at her house and haven’t seen it anyplace else!  It’s my go to meal when I don’t know what else to make and I’m shopping my pantry!”

Give them a try and tell us what you and your family thinks!

Mexican Haystacks
1 small can chunk pineapple
1 cup small cubed chicken – fresh or canned
1 10.5oz can cream of chicken soup – cream of mushroom works also if you like mushrooms
1/3 cup milk
Frozen waffles – any variety
chow mein noodles – optional
slivered almonds – optional
salt & pepper – as needed
Combine cream of chicken soup, cubed chicken, & milk in large deep skillet on med-high heat until bubbling.  Turn down to medium and add pineapple until warm, liquids should be a thick, gravy-like consistency.  While cooking liquids, heat up frozen waffles in toaster oven.
Place cooked waffle on a plate and spoon chicken/pineapple mixture on top.  Add a sprinkle of chow mein noodles and/or slivered almonds on top for crunch.  Add salt & pepper to taste.
Serve and enjoy!
Makes approx 4-5 waffles.  Can double recipe for larger crowds.
(Thank you for submitting the recipe, Becca Holt!)

Get Facebook Page Updates to Show Up in Feed (New Way!)


I just found a new (at least to me!) setting for pages you follow on Facebook.  One of the most common questions we get is how to see all Bargain Believer posts in your Facebook feed.  It’s frustrating when you want to see something and Facebook just doesn’t show it to you.

We know that commenting, sharing, and “liking” posts helps.  But, it looks like we may have a new option.  Hope this really works!!

Some deals go quickly, so it’s a great way to follow us, if you’re on Facebook a lot.  Plus, we post some added information or have a Facebook-only giveaway from time to time.

Assuming you want to see everything we post  . . .

Supposedly, Bargain Believer posts will show up at the top of your feed.  Give it a try and let us know what happens.

Help! We Need Your Catalina Notifications! ~ (& Juli’s Luck …)

If you get any Catalina notifications, please send them our way because . . .

There is a serious conspiracy against me getting Catalina notifications!  I joke that the only way I get them is to reach in trash cans or bend down in dark, wet parking lots.  No joke — almost.  I may get a notification every couple months.  That’s it.

Well, I did my usual . . . reached in a trash can on the way out the door at Fry’s today.  (Yes, I’ll stoop that low — just for you!)  :)

Here’s what I got . . .  I can’t read dates, products, etc.  There are lines going through it.  Figures.


Here’s what Allison had already sent me last night . . . Why do I bother trying?

allison_catAnd, I got this “bonus” . . .


I’m not sure if it’s an exclusive offer or one we can all get.  It looks like it’s adding up all the Minute Maid drink purchases and spiting out a coupon, at some point.  It’s not the typical Catalina offer.  They are only 88¢ / $1.38 starting Wed. at Fry’s, so . . .  if I had all the details, it might reveal a better bargain.  But, I don’t.  Those types are usually only for select people, but ??  I’ll buy one tomorrow and see if I get the printout — sure!  If you get any details, let us know!

If you see an offer on the master Catalina list and it doesn’t thank someone … it means Gina, Susan, or Allison got it.  Without them or you … that list would be blank!

Catalinas are a great way to maximize your savings.  If you don’t know what they are, read here.

If you want to see the most current list, go here.

I hope to add some more.  Send us pics of your notifications!!  THANKS!

juli @ bargain believer .com  or gina @ bargain believer .com (take out spaces)

Or, you can post them over on the Bargain Believer Facebook page.  Thanks so much!
