Free Scrub Sponges

I found two different O-Cel-O Scrub Sponges packs on clearance at Albertson's. One kind was 1.24 and the other was 1.49. Albertson's takes competitor's store coupons and you can stack a store coupon with a manufacturer coupon. Print the following coupons (as many times as you would like!):

$1/2 O-Cel-O (manufacturer coupon)

$1/1 O-Cel-O (Target coupon)
The target coupon say good on O-Cel-O Expressions so I think you have to get the ones with designs on them--not just the plain ones.

I bought 20 packs of sponges, used 20 Target coupons and 10 manufacturer coupons and got them all for free (plus a little overage)! The Target coupons did not scan and the cashier had to put them in manually, but mine did it, no problem.

(Just don't go to the Albertson's at Stapley and University :) )

Freebies (with coupons) Feb 27 to Mar 4

If you save your Sunday coupons, there are several free items this week (just pay tax if applicable).

Colgate toothpaste .99
use: $1 off one (2/3 La Voz Valassis - expires Saturday)

La Victoria Enchilada Sauce $1.50
use: $2 off of one (found in both the 12/9 and 12/16 Smart Source inserts). This expires tomorrow! (2/29/08)

Peter Pan Peanut Butter $1.00
use: $1 off one (1/6 Smart Source, also expires tomorrow)

Propel Fitness Water $1.00

Free Chicken Nuggets!

Fast Fixin' Chicken products are $1 each at Fry's this week. They are in packages that are the same as ones you would buy fresh meat in but they are in the frozen foods section. There are several varieties: Popcorn Chicken, Chicken 'n Cheese Nuggets, Chicken Patties, and Chicken Strips. The quality isn't great, but my kids really like them.

Visit this website to print out several $1 off coupons (you will have to sign up). If I remember right, you can print 10 coupons the first time. Take those $1 off coupons to Fry's and get 10 packages of free chicken! Then save your UPCs and send them in to Fast Fixin's and they will send you a coupon for another FREE product!

K-Mart Rumor....

I haven't tried this yet, so I can't confirm....

If you can find the boxes of Pampers diapers that have the bonus of 60 wipes in them, they are on clearance for $12 (regular price $20). They may not be marked that way, but if you ring them up, it should show the clearance price. Look up high on the shelves and dig if you have to. They may be behind other boxes. Use the coupon from Feb. 10th for another $1 off!

Walgreens 2/24 to 3/1

Buy $30 or more in participating baby products, get $5 Register Rewards (a coupon to be used on your next purchase)

Best deal (if you need diapers):
3 Jumbo packs Huggies diapers, 9.00 ea (print out 1.00 coupon here:, can print it twice) Get on a friend's computer and print it a third time so you have one coupon for each pack of diapers.
1 Aveeno product, 3.33 ea (use $1 coupon from Jan. 20)

Total (before coupons): 30.33
after 3 diaper coupons and one aveeno coupon: 26.33 out of pocket
get $5 register reward

It is like paying 1.83 for the Aveeno and 6.50 for each of the packs of diapers (.1625 per diaper for size 3--cheaper than Sams' Club).

You CANNOT roll this register reward into another Huggies purchase--if you do, another register reward will not print out. Just use it for other things you need to buy, or save it for later (but don't let it expire!).

Cinnamon Life deal:
Quaker Life Cereal, 4/$10. Buy 4, get $4 Register Rewards

IF Cinnamon Life is included:
Print 2 coupons here:
and 2 more coupons here:

Buy 4 Cinnamon Life, $10
Use 4 $1 coupons, -$4
Total after coupons: $6.00 out of pocket
get $4 register rewards (like paying $2 for 4 boxes, or .50 a box)

You can use the Register rewards from this deal on the huggies deal or visa versa. You just can't roll over the register rewards into the SAME deal. Make sense?

Green Giant frozen boxed veggies 1.64 ea--Buy 3, get another 2.00 off your order (.52 for all 3 after both promos) Use link above for more savings!

Here is a link to a list of all the items in the promo (but the ones listed above are the best deals!):

Disclaimer: Technically, Safeway's policy says they will double only 3 like coupons but my Safeway has never limited me. Many times Safeway's promos like this don't "work"--i.e. the coupon doesn't print out like it should. The items above are all comfirmed to work. If you get other items that are in the ad and your coupon doesn't print, or it's not for $20, talk to your cashier or customer service and they should try to make it right.


Jane Make-up Deal!

All Jane make-up is buy one, get one free through Saturday, Feb. 23. Most items are 4.00 or less. Use the coupon here: to get make-up VERY cheap! Here's how it works:

Print out as many coupons as you want (one per item).
Make sure you buy an even number of items.
After you cashier gives you the total, give her the most coupons you can (without making the total go below zero). This works because you can use one coupon for each item (even the free ones!). Unless you get more expensive items, you will not be able to use as many coupons as you have items because it will make the total go below zero. Just find out the total, divide it by 2, round down and use that many coupons. (Clear as mud?) I did several transactions today and all were under $2 total out of pocket!!

Also: If you are getting mascara, get the Easy Saver booklet at the front of the store. There is a store coupon you can use for $2 off Jane mascara. (The $2 comes off the free one too and you can also use the manufacturer coupon from the link.) Use this coupon BEFORE the Jane coupons.

Disclaimer: Your cashier may not want to let you use coupons on the free items. The store will get reimbursed for the coupon but if the cashier and the manager don't allow it, just try another store!


Free butter!
Challenge butter (1/2 lb sticks or spreadable tub) are on sale for 1.00 ea.
Use this link to sign up for a coupon to be emailed to you:

The coupons are .50 off one Challenge butter and .50 off one Challenge Spreadable butter. Like Safeway, Bashas doubles to $1.00 so you can get one of each for free!!

Bertolli and Breyers
There is a coupon in the Bashas ad for FREE Breyers ice cream when you buy two Bertolli frozen dinners (they are really yummy, by the way). Use the following link to print a coupon for 2.50 off Bertolli's: After you print it the first time, use your browsers back button and print it twice! After all three coupons, you will spend 7.00 on 2 Bertolli meals and one Breyers ice cream. The Bertolli meals are usually amost that much for just one!
Also, Bashas is the store to get your milk at this week--1/2 gallons are 1.00 ea.
