Super Savings Saturday – 1/13/18

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday.

The wild winter continues: We’ve swung from negative temps and blizzards to over 50 degrees and raining here in New England! While I’m not really sure what to make of it, I’m certainly not complaining about the warmer weather.

This week was a mix bag for shopping, mostly good and one complete fail.

Best Buy:

Because I had a gift card and Best Buy was having a sale, I ordered a new wireless mouse from their website. Based on the description, it seemed identical to what I already, except the color was purple instead of black. (Purple is my all-time favorite color and hard to find in-store.) When it arrived, it was the right color, but wrong size. I swear this mouse is a micro! I’ve definitely never seen anything this small and can’t use it, so it will have to be returned or exchanged. Very annoying.


Colgate toothpaste, sale price $3.50. I stacked a $2.50 store coupon with a $1.00 manufacturer’s coupon. Total: Free!


2 Lindt chocolate truffle bags, sale price 2/$2.00. I used 2 $1.00 manufacturer’s coupons. Total: Free! (These are the mini 0.8 ounce bags that are devoured in a flash.)


As usual, Shaw’s had a bunch of good loss leaders available for the 3-day sale.

Beef eye round roast, sale price $1.99/lb. Total: $17.89! (I bought multiples to freeze.)

3 avocados, sale price $0.88. Total: $2.64!

2 mangoes, sale price $0.88. Total: $1.76! (Since I’m a mango hater, I only grabbed a couple for smoothies that will be enjoyed by my better half.)

Signature Kitchen wheat bread, sale price $0.88. Total: $0.88!

O Organics pumpkin, sale price $1.00. Total: $4.00! (I found these on an end cap in the clearance section. They had a bunch of baking stuff marked down.)

Lucerne butter, sale price $1.99. Total: $3.98! (The limit was only 2 and strictly enforced.)


Have you found any deals lately?

*Hot Deal Alert* FREE Eggs & Bread at Walmart!

Wow, here’s a great cash back deal: Score free eggs and free bread at Walmart! No coupons to clip, no minimum cash out amount—just $4.50 deposited directly into your PayPal account.

Follow these easy steps:

  • Download the app
  • Search Walmart in the search bar
  • From Walmart page, search Eggs to locate free offer
  • From Walmart page, search Bread to locate free offer
  • Make sure both offers are selected
  • Link your PayPal account
  • Purchase both items & upload receipt by 1/7

At my local store, I found Great Value eggs for $2.27 and Sara Lee bread for $1.97. Any type of eggs up to $2.50 and sandwich bread up to $2.00 are fine. The amount will be credited to your PayPal account within 2 days (mine took 10 hours).

This app works really well for folks that typically pass up deals because of the hassle. Even if you don’t have the time or energy to coupon in a traditional way, snapping a pic and uploading it won’t take more than a minute.

Super Savings Saturday – 12/30/17

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday. Can you believe 2017 is coming to a close? Couponing and deal hunting was fairly good this year, overall, but rebate apps and mobile coupons seem to be taking over. Almost obsolete are the mail-in rebate programs and newspaper coupons that were required when I started back in 2008. Like anything else, couponing continues to change over time. In some ways, I preferred the old system, but we have to adapt, regardless.

This week, it was all about meat and produce. I love stocking up on healthy food when it’s on sale.


2 boxes Halo mandarin oranges, sale price $4.99. I used 2 $0.50 manufacturer’s coupons, doubled. Total: $7.98! (An excellent price for 10 Lbs of fruit.)

Boneless, skinless chicken breast, sale price $1.49/Lb. Total: $11.96!

5 Avocados, sale price $1.00. Total: $5.00! (Turned into yummy homemade guacamole.)

4 Lucerne cheddar cheese bars, sale price $1.50. Total: $6.00! (I would’ve bought much more, however, the limit was 4. I may go back later in the week if there’s time.)

Eye Round roast, sale price $2.49/Lb. Total: $8.04!

3 English cucumbers, sale price $1.00. Total: $3.00! (These make a really good side dish. Simply dice and marinate in Italian dressing.)

2 peppers, one red and one green, sale price $1.00. Total: $2.00!

The MyMixx weekly freebie was for Ripe Craft juice, but my store was all out. Otherwise, I was pleased to find everything on my list.

$10.00 off $10.00 Coupon at JCPenny

If you have any last minute shopping to do—or want to stock up for next year!—stop by a JCPenney store today, 12/23. They are giving away coupons for $10.00 off a $10.00 purchase. The trick to getting this awesome freebie is making sure you’re there when the doors open because there’s a limited number available and no rainchecks.

In the past, I’ve gotten free towels, slippers, and kids clothes, so it’s definitely worth trying, provided you’re at the mall anyway. I wouldn’t, however, make a special trip just for the coupon in case they’re all gone.
