Sunday Coupon Insert Preview ~ 2 Coming on 8/24/14

If you like to peek ahead to see what coupons you should expect on Sunday, go to Sunday Coupon Preview and check it out.  It looks like we should be getting two inserts this Sunday . . . Red Plum (RP) and Smart Source (SS). Remember, coupons are sometimes regional, so there aren’t any guarantees what we’ll get.  However, they are usually pretty close and give you a good idea what to expect. az_republic_3_for_1 If you don’t get the Sunday coupons, you can get the Sunday and Wednesday Arizona Republic delivered for only $12 for 3 months, if you haven’t been a subscriber in the past 30 days.   I have verified that this is the best rate they currently have available.  You pay for one month, get two for free.  That works out to approximately $1 per week!  The key is that you need to cancel in three months, if you decide not to continue at full price, since it’s an autopay offer.  I’ve often called to cancel a promotional rate and they’ve extended it, but no guarantees on that.

My favorites are:

Colgate Max, Total, 2in1 or Optic White   $3.00    AT CVS
$2.00 ECB when you buy 1 (limit 2, What are ECB?)
$1/1 Colgate Enamel Health, Total, Optic White, Max Fresh or Sensitive Toothpaste 08/24/2014 SS Insert (exp 9/6/14) (future, if we get it)
Final price:  As low as FREE (after ECB factored in)

Bic Disposable Razor (10-12 count, Sensitive or Silky)   $2.87 (reg. price)   AT FRY’S
$2/1 Bic Disposable Razor 08/24/2014 SS Insert (exp 9/21/14)
Final price:  87¢

Dannon Danimals Smoothie Pack (6 pack)   $2.49 (thru 9/9)   AT FRY’S
$1/1 Dannon Danimals Smoothie Pack 08/24/2014 SS Insert (exp 9/24/14)
Final price:  As low as $1.49

Tresemme Shampoo or Conditioner   $4.19   AT FRY’S
$2/1 Tresemme Shampoo or Conditioner 08/24/2014 RP Insert (exp 9/21/14)
Final price:  $2.19

Red Box ~ Free DVD Today (8/21)

We’ve been getting lots of Red Box codes lately!

Today only (8/21), get a free DVD rental with code 12HHN756

Update:  It looks like this is online only.  Reserve it here with the code and then go pick it up. (Thanks, Tamara!)

You may be able to use this code up to five times on a credit card that has already been used at Redbox,
and only three times on a new credit card.  If you use it 5 times, you actually have to checkout one movie at a time.

The Amazing Spiderman 2 came out this week.
I was watching it with my boys and said, “oh is that Gwen Stefani?”
To which my son, quickly said, “it’s Gwen Stacy Mom who’s Gwen Stefani?’
Guess I’m not as up to date on superhero stuff as I thought.

(Thanks, Free Stuff Times!)

Saving Star Friday Freebie ~ Jello, 3 oz Box (redeem thru 8/17)


SavingStar has a new Friday Freebie.  You only have until Sunday, 8/17 to buy this offer.

Saving Star Friday Freebie ~ Jell-O (3 oz box)
FREE SavingStar eCoupon (future savings, exp. 8/17)
Final price:  FREE after full rebate, cash out when hit $5

This is different from the Fry’s Friday Freebie.  After you click “I Want This” on the offer, you’ll pay full price at the register.  In about 2-22 days, you’ll get a credit for the amount you paid  in your Saving Star account.

Note:  Other stores are now accepting SavingStar.  Sign up and then download their mobile app.  For stores without a loyalty card (like Target) you will need to submit a receipt through the app.

Plus, check out all the other great coupons.   This is a click, click, click job for me.  I just go click what I think there’s a chance I’ll ever buy.  Then, I wait for money to accumulate into my account.  You can cash out once you have $5.  More details are below.  Go load ‘em up!

They have a new deal called “Healthy Offer of the Week”.  Every Tuesday a new coupon is available to load.  Check back every Tuesday for a new offer.   My Saving Star account has never seen so much activity between the Healthy Tuesday offer and now the Friday Freebie!  Love it!

If you don’t know what it is, here’s more information:

With SavingStar, you can save eCoupons to your grocery store loyalty cards and automatically get credited when you swipe your card at checkout.  The savings doesn’t come off at the register, it gets credited to your SavingStar account.  You can request your payment via Paypal, bank deposit, or gift card when you reach $5.

I just load what I have a chance of buying and then forget about it.

The Arizona stores that participate are Fry’s, Bashas, and CVS.  Albertsons is included too, but there isn’t a loyalty card for that store.   They said you could get a Upromise keytag, but when Juli and I asked at customer service, they had no clue what we were talking about.  Josh from Saving Star gave us the info!    “Contact the stores’ customer support team at 877-932-7948. Please let them know that you use SavingStar and you will need to be issued a “Upromise keytag”. Customer support will ask for your information and you will then be sent a keytag in the mail which you can register in your SavingStar account as the loyalty card number for ACME, Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, or Shaw’s.”  I called earlier this week and the rep knew exactly what I was talking about and my Upromise keytag is in the mail.  Thanks again Josh!

They are not meant to be combined with paper coupons.  Here’s their official statement on that:
(Personally, I load everything I might buy and forget it.)

SavingStar eCoupons will work whether or not you combine them with other services’ coupons, but they are not intended to be used this way.  Generally, manufacturers state that it is against their policies for shoppers to redeem more than one manufacturer’s coupon for the same purchase.  Using in-store coupons in combination with SavingStar eCoupons is not a problem.  In the future, we may implement mechanisms to limit the combination of SavingStar eCoupons with other manufacturer coupons.

Fry’s Deals w/ Shopmium ~ Get Chips Ahoy, Noosa Yogurt and Haribo all for 49¢ (after coupons and cashback)


There are some new Shopmium deals that work great at Fry’s.  My favorite thing about Shopmium is there is no minimum to cash out.  Every time you submit for a rebate, it gets approved and you have instant cash in your paypal account.  Easy peasy.  You could walk in to Fry’s, buy all 3 of these items, use coupons for them and submit for your Shopmium rebate.  You’ll end up paying just 49¢ for all three items!!

Haribo Gummy Bears   $1.00 (reg. price)
$0.30/1 Coupons.com (gone if not first coupon shown after clicking link, worth $1)
$0.30/1 Facebook (worth $1)
$0.50/1 Shopmium (use referral code: GCCGAUVL, and get a FREE Lindt Bar for new users)

You can see all the Fry’s deals and match ups here.

Here’s more info on Shopmium:

If you like Checkout 51 and Ibotta, you may want to try Shopmium. It’s a new way to save on top of sales and coupons.

It works like this:

  • Choose an offer in the list and find it in your regular store. They list stores that have it, but any store that has a computer generated receipt works (which is pretty much everywhere now a days.)
  • Buy the product and keep your receipt.
  • Ask for your refund by scanning the barcode and take a picture of your receipt.
  • Receive your refund via paypal or bank transfer or give to charity!

That’s it. Some perks of Shopmium is that you don’t have a minimum cash out value. I just redeemed two offers and they went straight to my paypal account! I love that I don’t have a $5 or $20 minimum to payout. If I don’t like it or don’t like the offers they have, I’ve lost nothing.

It works on iPhones or Android devices.

If you’d be kind enough to enter Juli’s referral code, she’ll get $2 per new user when you redeem your first offer! You’ll also get an offer for a free Lindt Chocolate Bar when you use her referral code. Win/win! This is a small way that Juli get’s paid, so that she can pay the rest of us to keep this blog going! We’d all appreciate it.

Download the app on your phone here.
Please use referral code: GCCGAUVL
