FREE Knudsen Cottage Doubles at Safeway ~ Printable Coupon

knudsen_$1

Susan found this the other day at Safeway, so it’s been on the Safeway list.  Before I highlighted it, I wanted to make sure the coupon scanned since I hate passing along deals where coupons beep and cause trouble.   It scanned for Susan and for me, without any angry beeps.  I also wanted to clarify a few things that I’ve been asked . . .

#1 — It scanned for Susan and for me, for $1, even though it says, “Do Not Double.”  Just keep in mind that your store has the right to suppress the value since their current policy says they won’t raise the value of those coupons.

#2 — The coupon is a pdf file.  That means it doesn’t have a print limit.  One you click to get the coupon, it will download for you and you can print from that same link over and over.  Just keep in mind that Safeway will only make three like coupons worth $1.  Since this is a regular price and the coupon doesn’t expire until 1/31/15 .  .  . well, just don’t go too crazy!

Knudsen Cottage Cheese Doubles (7.8 oz)   $1.00 (reg. price, has real CA seal)
$0.35/1 printable (scroll down and look for “coupon,” worth $1, coupon states Do Not Double but it scans up to $1 automatically — store may suppress it if, they want to, though)
Final price:  FREE

See the Safeway list for the sale that goes from 8/13/14 – 8/19/14 here.

Make Shopping List from Mobile Device ~ You Can! (Hopefully!)

mobile_theme

My husband recently informed me that you can make a personalized shopping list from most mobile devices, using the handy dandy green plus signs on Bargain Believer shopping lists.  (I know that some newer devices don’t have problems.)  I told him, “Nope, tried it.”  I discovered there is a slight glitch on my phone, so that’s why I didn’t know.  (I’ll explain below.)  Did you know this!?!  I’m so excited and can’t believe I didn’t know about it.

First of all, if you don’t use the green plus signs, you’re missing out.  The items are listed by price on the sale lists, but when you click on what you want, it will categorize for you — and a whole lot more than that!  You can watch this video for more details or just click around and figure it all out.

You will need to turn off the mobile view.   The green plus signs will appear and you can click away!  A new window will pop up and you’ll have to go back and forth between them.  For Gina (iphone) and my husband (Android) that’s all they had to do.

For me (iphone), nothing appears on the list after clicking the first green plus sign.  It pulls up an empty list.  I have to click back on the store’s deal list and then back to the shopping list that opened.  It magically appears and kicks it in gear for the future green plus signs I click.

This is still not ideal.  We have bigger and better plans and my husband is working on it, but this is better than nothing.  I will be using my mobile sometimes, but will still prefer using my laptop to make lists.  Using a mobile is a slower process since you have to go back and forth between windows.

All mobiles seem to have their own issues and the plus signs weren’t really designed for mobile devices.  So, this may not work for everyone.  But, give it a shot!

Some of you have probably been doing this “forever.”  But, I’m hoping it will be news for some of you — like it was for me!!  :)

Safeway App Update & JustforU Program Explained (Coupon Stacking?)

safeway_app_update

If you haven’t logged into your Safeway app recently, go check it out.  You’ll be prompted to do an update.  The biggest change is that you can now scan the barcode of an item to see if you have an offer for it.

If you don’t have the app, you may want to get it (free).  It’s one I like to have, mostly because I always doubt if I added what I think I did, when I’m in the store.  I can quickly double check or add a deal I forgot to add, when I see a shelf tag.  And (not that this EVER happens — I WISH!!), I can show them the coupons that should have come off, when they don’t.  :(

If you’re a Safeway shopper, be sure you’re read this post.  I explain how all the JustforU coupons work and the other aspects to their program.  I also tell  you which ones can be stacked with paper coupons.

Are We Going to Charge for Bargain Believer? No! ~ How Can You Support Us?

bargain_believer_logo

I’ve been asked if I will charge a fee for the upgrades/app my husband is working on.  No!  Unless there is a reason our income drops, we can afford to keep going the way we are.  Thankfully, my husband works for dinner (when I make it!) and doesn’t expect more.  :)

I pay four people to help with this site:  Gina, Susan, Cherie, Karen.   Let me assure you that none of them are getting rich and they all deserve more for what they do!  When there’s “extra,” I make money.  When there’s not, I don’t.  Thankfully, overall I do.  I have additional ideas for improvements, but they all take time.  Since I don’t have more of that precious commodity, it would mean hiring additional people to help.  I’m always afraid to take that leap since my income goes up and down and I’m not willing to lose money by running this website.  But, up to this point, it’s always worked out.

I’ve also been asked what you can do to thank us or help support the site.  First of all, by asking that or telling us how the site has helped you . . . you’ve brought a smile to my face and probably the other gals.  Thank you!  Beyond that, my basic answer is . . . . use this site and tell others about it, if you find value in it!

Something even more tangible that you can do is bookmark the Coupons.com page on the site:
http://www.bargainbeliever.com/blog/coupons-com-printables/

Whenever you print coupons from there (or any direct link we give), I get paid.  When you type in Coupons.com and go to their site, I don’t.  From time to time, I get paid for other links I give you, but that is one of the main ways I make money and we can continue to make the site free.

Another consistent source of income is from Google ads, as you probably know.  When you see something of interest and click on it (or just come to the site), they pay me a small amount.  It adds up!

So, please use the links we provide!  Many won’t bring me any revenue, but some do.  I try very hard not to post things just because I’ll get paid for them.  In fact, I just had a IM conversation with Susan a couple days ago, hesitating to post something because it made me money.  When I make money, I often give it extra thought — just to make sure that’s not what is motivating me to publish it.  I don’t want this site to become like so many out there . . . selling you one “bargain” after another just to make a buck or two.   I’m very firm on this.

Again, this link is a great one to bookmark and use . . . it has a value to you and to all of us who work behind the scenes.  Thank you!
http://www.bargainbeliever.com/blog/coupons-com-printables/   It’s also on the top menu bar, if that’s easier.

Thank for being here and trusting us to bring you deals we find value in!

~ Juli

P.S.  My husband is slowly working on the upgrades, but there is not a target date.  It just gets a couple hours here and there, as he can find time.  The biggest change (that will probably roll out first) will be for you to be able to move from device to device, being able to work on or pull up your completed lists.  I’m very excited and can’t wait to use it myself!

Input, Please? ~ Bargain Believer App & Upgrades Coming!

bargain_believer_logo

Long story short . . . My husband and I are going to be kid-less this weekend.  We were going to get away, but decided to stay home and work on Bargain Believer upgrades.  Don’t worry, we’ll throw in a movie or two and dinners out, also.  I decided I’m not cooking and will pretend we’re on vacation!   Do you think dinners out are tax deductible, as a business expense?   :)

What functionality do you want an app for Bargain Believer or the website to have, that it doesn’t already?  And/or, what do you love and not want to lose?  (I doubt there will be much disappearing, but some tweaking.  Additionally, it would help me clarify what is of the most value to you.)

Dream big!  My husband is an amazing programmer and most of the “crazy” ideas I’ve given him, he hasn’t thrown out.  :)  In fact, he’s said, “Well, why not have it do more?”  Amazing stuff . . . but some are way in the future since they’re . .  well, crazy good and crazy time consuming!  :)

The list we have is very long, but I don’t want to be missing anything simple or complex that you might be thinking of.  I won’t respond to each suggestion, but I promise to read them all and consider them.  I hope to add to the list and/or make my vision more clear, knowing that you want what we’ve already thought of.

Please comment below or over on the Bargain Believer Facebook page.

By the way . . . this will take hours and hours and hours, so I can’t promise when there will be any visible changes or anything tangible.  We might roll a few things out slowly — not sure yet!

Thanks so much for your input!!  It will really help us.  ~ Juli

Checkout 51 ~ New Way to Save (similar to ibotta)

Checkout 51 Home

Have you checked out Checkout 51?  It’s a new way to save money, very similar to Ibotta.

Here’s what they say about their program:

Checkout 51 is the easiest way to save money on the brands you love! We’re currently saving over half a million Americans and Canadians money every day and have much larger plans for expansion!

All our members have to do is follow these simple steps:

  1. Browse the offers that are updated every Thursday
  2. Buy the products from any store
  3. Take a photo of your receipt to redeem your deal
  4. Get cash back!

It works on your iPhone, iPad or Android device.  You have to reach $20 in savings to get payout, and they will mail a check to you.  If you are a new member, the first receipt over $20 that you scan in will earn you $2 back!

I love that this works at Albertsons since they always have great milk deals (ibotta doesn’t work there yet).  Milk will be on sale at Albertsons for $1.87 starting tomorrow.  Checkout 51 has an offer for $1 back on a gallon of milk.  That’s like paying on 87¢ after you factor in your future cashback!

If both Checkout 51 and Ibotta have the same offer, let’s say for milk, you can do both offers with the same receipt.  Just remember ibotta doesn’t work at some stores.  So, for the milk, it might be better to price match at Walmart and go from there.

So, go here to sign up and start saving today!
