Lowe's Printable Coupon

These are hard to come by, so I love when there's a printable. Generally, you canprint 2 per computer by using your back button, or just closing out and going through the steps again. This coupon is perfect for your spring planting purchases. If you already bought some things at Lowe's recently, you can sometimes have luck in taking in your receipt and they will adjust it with the coupon. You might get a refund or you might get merchandise credit, but 10 bucks is 10 bucks. You can also use this coupon at Home Depot as a competitor coupon.

I, of course, dropped $60 on flowers and plants last weekend. At Home Depot. Sigh.

Anyway, here's the link. Enjoy!

Coupon expires 4/4.

Kellogg's Rebate

$10 Gas Card Rebate from Kellogg's.

For those of you new to rebates, this is a huge part of saving money and turning your grocery cart into a money makin' machine. I've literally been paid money to buy groceries between sales, coupons, and then turning around and submitting for rebates. Now it's your turn.
Oh, and this is reason #55 for keeping all your receipts. I just bought some Kellogg's cereal last week and now I am that much closer to submitting for my first of these rebates.

Kellogg’s Cereal Gas Rebate

There is a great Kellogg’s Cereal Gas Rebate available.  The rebate requires you to purchase 10 select Kellogg’s Cereal through 12/31/11.  You simply clip your UPC codes off the box and submit them, along with the rebate form to get a $10 PrePaid MasterCard.
There is a limit of 5 Gas Rewards Cards per household so you can keep clipping and keep sending them in.
Here are the Kellogg’s cereals that are included in the rebate.  These all have to be 10 oz or larger and you can mix and match:
  • Kellogg’s All-Bran® Original cereal
  • Kellogg’s All-Bran® Bran Buds® cereal
  • Kellogg’s All-Bran® Complete® Wheat Flakes® cereal
  • Kellogg’s Smart Start® Strong Heart Antioxidant cereal

  • Kellogg’s® Lowfat Granola with Raisins cereal
  • Kellogg’s® Lowfat Granola without Raisins cereal
  • Kellogg’s® Fruit Harvest Strawberry/Blueberry cereal
  • Kellogg’s Rice Krispies® cereal
But wait, there's more!
The only thing that makes a rebate offer better is when you have perfect high value coupons to pair with them!

Kellogg’s has just released over $15.00 in high-value coupons!! Head on over here and login/register to print them!

But wait, there's more!
(sound like a cheesy infomercial yet?)
I can't make this any easier for you. Here's the best scenario to combine sales with coupons and with the rebate. Just leave some Froot Loops for me!

Target edges out Walmart. {Well, duh.}

It looks like Target is finally getting the recognition it deserves, edging out #1 retailer, Walmart, as being the best deal. Combined with their awesome clearances, hidden gem price reductions, store coupons combined with MFR coupons, and the generally cleaner and friendlier atmosphere, this is the nail in the coffin for Walmart {in my opinion}.

A retail consulting firm Customer Growth Partners has come out with a new study today revealing Target’s prices are in-fact lower than No. 1 retailer Walmart. Heres how it worked: 35 brand-name items consisting of 22 common grocery goods such as milk, cereal and rice; 10 general merchandise products such as clothing and home furnishings; and three health and beauty items were purchased at Walmart and Target stores in New York, Indiana and North Carolina.
  • Target shopping cart (pre-tax): $269.13
  •  Walmart shopping cart (pre-tax): $271.07
“For the first time in four years, our price comparisons between the two has shown that Target has a slight edge over Wal-Mart,” said Johnson. A smaller study by Kantar Retail found similar results.
Wal-Mart spokesman David Tovar said, “We are absolutely committed to offering our customers low prices every day. If customers find a lower advertised price, we’ll match it every time.”
Though it’s important to note that according to Johnson, “Target isn’t beating Wal-Mart on all items but it is on those that really matter to consumers.”

Family Fun Magazine

Family Fun Magazine by far the best thing for any family with kids between 2 and 100. I recommend a subscription for your household, as well as for the grandparents to have on hand if the kids ever visit there. The articles are short, but the magazine is chock full of awesome, innovative games and crafts. Some activites require a little shopping list, while others you can do with what you have on hand or what you can find in your recylcing bin. This magazine is worth the full subscription cost, but now you can get a year subscription for $1. Go on, and have some Family Fun.

Mamapedia is offering a $1 subscription to Family Fun magazine to NEW Mamapedia members. The subscription is on sale for $5 and when you enter the code INTRO4 at checkout, your total will be $1!

Sights and Bargains in England

We have arrived safe and sound. I will post deals as I can from afar, but expect a little less traffic this week. Instead, enlighten yourself with some weepy "I miss my family" posts.


8 March 2011

We spent the day in Birmingham and I am elated to report that bargains abound even in England! I found the cutest coin purses for Isabella and her friends today. I was going to buy myself a new coin purse, and of course was trying to find something gorgeous and inexpensive...and alas, I found 3 of these on final markdown for 1.50 pound (roughly $2.80). I was ecstatic.

I need to find one more, and I am going to scour the Stratfod-Upon-Avon location of the same store tomorrow .. after we see the Shakespeare sites and all...
