Arizona Republic Discount Code (DBLOG) ~ $1 per week for Sun. & Wed. Delivery

I’m so excited about the offer The Arizona Republic has, exclusively for Bargain Believer followers!  We’re going back to the good old days … $1 per week!

Get the Sunday & Wednesday papers delivered for $4.33* per month, which is about $1 per week.  You can sign up here or call 602-444-1000 and mention code DBLOG.

Even better news … this is not an offer than ends and then you end up getting charged full price.

The same pricing will continue, until you cancel your paper!  This is unheard of, in recent times.  Recent offers have lasted 3, 6, or 12 months and then you ended up paying full price and/or having to remember to call and cancel.

That means full sets of coupons on Sunday and no running to the store to get a paper!  Sometimes stores get smaller packets of coupons or are missing an insert.  You may even get a little bonus every once in awhile, with a coupon insert thrown in a Wednesday paper.  It doesn’t happen often, but there’s been a nice surprise in there every once in awhile.

* Added notes:  You have to be a new subscriber to get this offer, 30 days or more since you got the paper delivered.  Tax brings the total to $4.64 per month.  The fine print says you’ll be charged for the Thanksgiving paper (can call to cancel, if not wanted) and $1 (four times) for four premium editions.  Print edition is not available in all areas, so if you live in a more remote area, you may want to call, to make sure you’re not going to end up with only the digital version.

Why? Help! ~ Note from Juli

Why?

There are times I wonder what I’m doing, running this website.  Not only do I feel inadequate sometimes, but my life is full … of the good stuff, the bad stuff, and the busy stuff.  Yes, I make some money by doing this, but I could make more if I used my time and energy to invest in something else.  But, it’s not about money.  My husband makes enough money to keep us happy.  So, I always come back to:  Why do I want to add stress to my life?

There are three reasons I can’t escape, no matter how hard I try to convince myself that I’d prefer extra time in my life, to pursue other things . . .

  1.  All of you ~ especially those who email your story, comment, share posts, tag a friend on Facebook, etc.  By doing that, you’re telling me you value what we’re doing.  You become “real” and not just a click on my stat page.  I can quit on clicks, but it’s hard to quit on people who find value in what we’re doing.  Some of you have even shared how much you saved and what it has led to . . . . amazing stories that have made me shed a couple tears, the good kind.  It’s hard to walk away from impacted lives.
  2. Gina ~ super duper assistant who does most everything and makes me wonder what I do sometimes, but something sucks up my time!?!?  I stumbled on this email Gina sent me awhile back, prompting me to do this post.  Seriously, how can I not press on, when I doubt myself?!?“… Our vacations simply would not happen if it weren’t for you and the job you’ve given me.  There wouldn’t be extra money for that, and I love making those memories with my kids and taking them new places and exposing them to new experiences. I love that I can be here every day with my kids when they get home from school.  I love that I can take care of them when they are sick and still work.  I’m grateful that when company comes or my best friend, I can work around my work and enjoy life and them. So, thank you, thank you, thank you.  I truly thank you. You are a blessing to me and my family.
  3.  Me! ~ I really like interacting with you and I gain something from that.  It’s not a one-way thing.  I love bargains and keeping them to myself isn’t as fun.  I love having an outlet, when time and ambition line up at the same time.  :)

More honesty … my income has been decreasing, mostly due to reduced Google ad revenue and coupon printing revenue.  I wonder how long I’ll be able to sustain everything.  It would sadden me, but if I ever began to lose money, it would be clear that it would be time to stop.  That’s where you come in!

I’ve shared this before, but for those who are new, here’s what you can do to help…

  • Use the links we provide vs going directly to a coupon site or buying something we share online.  The majority don’t pay, but some do.  They aren’t huge amounts (many as low as $0.02), but they add up when everyone is using them.
    You can bookmark this for printing from Coupons.com:

  •  I love Amazon and I’m sure you do, too!  When making an Amazon purchase, use the search box on the top left of the website.  If you start there (no matter what you search for), whatever you end up buying will track and I receive a payment.  If you prefer bookmarking it, going through this link will also get me credit.

  • Visit the website often.  Google ads count visitors and the more the merrier.  When you click on the ads, I receive more, but I TRULY only want you to click if interested.  I don’t think it’s fair for advertisers to pay unless you’re really interested.  But, Google matches ads pretty well, so if something comes up that you already searched for and plan to buy or you want more information, please click from there.
  • Tell people about the website … groups or individuals, publicly or privately.  I love seeing people tag their friends on Facebook.  I know you like what you see and value it enough to share it!

As Gina said, “So, thank you, thank you, thank you.  I truly thank you.  You are a blessing to me and my family.”  You really are!  Sure, we work hard, but we get the benefit of knowing that what we invest in isn’t meaningless.   My heart is full, though my days are sometimes sparse in time.  THANK YOU!  ~ Juli

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.

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

coupons
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!
