3 Boxes of Kleenex For As Low As $0.97

Starting April 7, CVS will be having a sale on Kleenex Facial Tissue. They will be on sale for $0.99 each. There's a coupon out that will make this deal even sweeter! You will want to head on over here and look for a coupon that says "$2.00 off Kimberly-Clark and Reckitt." It is a CVS coupon and CVS/pharmacy will be written on it in red.

This is how the deal will go:
Buy 3 Kleenex Tissue @ $0.99 each = $2.97
-Use (1) $2.00 CVS coupon found here
Pay $0.97 for THREE boxes of Kleenex (that's about $0.32 per box!)

If you have access to a computer and a printer, print this coupon NOW. There's not guarantee that it will still be there when the sale begins on April 7.

ALSO, if you were hoping to buy diapers, April 7 will be a great time to do it! (I will post more info about that next week!)

Thanks, CentsAbleShoppin for info about the deal!

Great Deals @ CVS starting 3/31

If you've been wanting to do some shopping with coupons at a drugstore, then the week of March 31 would be a great time to start shopping at CVS. You can pick up FREE shampoo and $0.50 chocolate! They also have a product called "Rescue Sleep Stress Relief " or "Rescue Pearls Stress Relief" that you can try out for a really good deal! You can also pick up some pretty inexpensive makeup.

If you have done so yet, you can sign up to receive emails from CVS and they will send you a coupon for $4 off a purchase of $20 or more. 

Buy 1 Clear Hair and Scalp Therapy @ 4.99
-Use (1) 4.99 instant coupon (which prints at the coupon machine at CVS when you scan your card)
You will only pay tax!
Note: In order to get the instant coupon, you would have to be a cardholder by 3/24)

Buy 1 Rescue Sleep or Rescue Pearls Stress Relief 24 ct @ $8.99
You will pay $8.99 plus tax, but you will also receive a ecb worth $8.99 which makes this product FREE (excluding tax).

Buy 1 Brookside Dark Chocolate Covered Fruit @ $3.00
-Use (1) 2.50 coupon found here (You will need to watch the video and then share it to get the $2.50 value)
You will pay $0.50 plus tax.
Note: Keep an eye on the fine print of the coupon. It states that only one coupon can be used per person.

I have heard some great things about this chocolate; and I can tell that it's popular because the shelves at my store have been empty since the chocolate came out! If your store is out of stock, remember to get a raincheck!

Trusted Survey Sites

Before I entered the survey world, I was really skeptical. It just didn't seem like it was legit. Now I've been doing them for almost 4 years, and I wish I had started sooner. There's just something so amazing about earning hundreds of dollars to supplement income a little bit. Here are a few of my favorites.

1. Pinecone: This is the best survey site--hands down. I'm sure that I have easily earned $60 from them. For each survey that you take, they send you a $3 check.They are an invite-only company, which means that in order to sign up you have to wait for them to send out invitations. You will be able to fill out basic information (name, gender, age, ethnicity, etc) to see if you qualify. I'll be sure to do a post when I see that they have sign ups available.

What I love:
  • They don't waste your time and send surveys that you don't qualify for. 
  • The surveys that I have taken have been really interesting. I don't think I've ever been bored while taking a survey sent from Pinecone. 
  • They send out really neat products for you to test and evaluate. You receive compensation for your evaluations!
  • Once you have been a member for a while, you will receive a debit card which payments are automatically loaded onto.
2. Ipsos I-say: This was the very first survey-based company that I signed up for. I made sure that I read up on them beforehand. I have received about $30 in Amazon gift cards from them. Taking surveys from this company was a great way to pass the time while nursing my then-newborn.

What I love:
  • If you don't qualify for a survey, then they will award you with a small amount of points to thank you for your time. 
  • Once you reach a certain amount of points, you can redeem them for gift cards. You can also choose to donate your points to various organizations. 
  • You also receive entries to win big prizes (such as a vacation; a date night package, etc.) just by taking their surveys. 
  • You get to test out full-sized products that they send to your home
3. Tellwut: I joined this site last year, and I have received two $10 Amazon gift cards. It takes a while longer to get a gift card, but it's so worth it. The questions that you answer are user-created. You can also create surveys for other people to answer. Each question is worth between 5 and 15 points.

What I love:
  • You get to choose which questions you're comfortable with answering. 
  • You can go there and answer a few questions questions each day without worrying about being tied down. 
  • You will receive 100 points for signing up and another 100 points for filling out your personal information
  • The questions are typically quick and easy.
With surveys, you just have to find what works best for you. Sign up for a few to start, so that you don't get overwhelmed. Also, feel free to share what survey companies you are signed up with. We'd love to know!

Rewards for Buying Products

Did you know that you can be rewarded from buying certain products? Often, companies will release codes that are worth points. Once you reach a certain amount of points, then you can redeem them for really neat prizes, like gift cards. You can even cash in your points for coupons to make buying those products cheaper!

You can also find codes labeled on the product. For instance, Pampers and Huggies usually have stickers that you can peel off of their products. I've listed some sites (along with some codes that you can redeem for points).

All you have to do to go to the site is click on the titles.

Huggie Enjoy the Ride Rewards


Kellogg's Family Rewards

Coupon for Gerber Graduates Sippy Cups

Update: The coupon is gone now.

I don't know about you, but my son loves his sippy cups. Right now his favorites are the ones that have straws. Unfortunately, those cups get lost so easily and I'm constantly going to the store to get new ones. A $2.00 off ANY Gerber Graduates Sippy Cup coupon has just been released; this will definitely help to keep out of pockets cost low.

Head over here to change your zip code to 11724.
Then click on this link where the coupon should already be clipped for you. (If it's not, let me know and I'll fix the link.)

It looks like you can get an amazing deal by taking the coupon over to Wal-mart where they have them priced at around $2.97 so you should be able to score a cup for $0.97 after using the $2.00 off coupon. (Remember, prices may vary at stores.)

Thanks for the info, Hip2Save!

$1.50/1 Pillsbury Artisan Pizza Crust Coupon

This coupon has been out for a while, but it's a good one! Pillsbury has released a high value coupon for their Refrigerated Artisan Pizza Crust with Whole Grain.

A few weeks ago, my local grocery store had this product on sale for $1.25. When I used the coupon, I had $0.25 leftover that I was allowed to apply to my shopping basket. I have heard some reports of it costing about $2.25, so $0.75 after the coupon.

I was thinking about layering some cheese, meat, sauce, and veggies on top of it. Then I would roll it up and bake it. It would look like the picture below. Does that look delicious? I think so.

The coupon prints with a long expiration date, so you don't have to worry about running out and using it right away. You should be able to print two coupons per computer by simply pressing the "back" button.

These liners would be a great donation item for a local shelter or other organization. You can call ahead and ask them if they are in need of hygiene products, which they just may be.

Be sure to take the Walmart coupon policy with you in case you run into any problems.

Making Money While Shopping Online


Do you love to shop online? What if you could get paid to shop online--would you love it even more? It turns out that you can get paid to shop online by using two popular websites--Ebates and ShopatHome. They are so so easy to use and totally legit.

Ebates and ShopatHome are basically online malls that allow customers to shop at major retailers. The sites offer cashback on purchases that are made. Once you reach a certain cashback amount, you will receive a check in the mail or you can opt to receive a gift card!  If you have questions about how the sites work, you can check out their HELP or FAQ sections before signing up.

I recommend signing up for both sites because there are times when one site may offer a higher cashback percentage than the other site. For instance, Ebates may offer 6% cashback for shopping at and ShopatHome may only offer 4% cashback. Looking at it this way, I would prefer to go through Ebates to do my shopping.

To sign up for Ebates, go here.

If you're interested in ShopatHome, go here.

Maidenform Bras for $8.50

Through tomorrow, March 12, Maidenform has bras on sale for $10. To make the deal even better, you can get an additional 15% using code COUPSCP13 AND you can get free shipping by using code SLKDEALFS13. I have ordered from this company before, and I can honestly say that they have great customer service!
Using the two promo codes above at checkout, you can score a bra for $8.50 shipped. Hurry because sizes can sell out quickly.

If you want to save even more, you can go through ShopatHome or Ebates.

Mega Swagbucks Day!

Have you signed up for Swagbucks? If not, today is a great day to do so. Since joining in 2010, I (and many others) have gotten tons of FREE gift cards! All of those gift cards can really add up and even help to supplement the Christmas budget. And it's not a scam!

One of my friends just joined a few months ago and she almost has enough points for her third gift card!

It's really easy to use this site. Instead of using Google's search engine, you use the one on Swagbucks! Sometimes during your searches, you will be awarded points or "swagbucks." Something like this will pop up:

It's not often that a message will pop up saying that "You've won 47 Swag Bucks." Usually, you will win between 6 and 15 swagbcks. Sometimes you'll get a lot of points and sometimes you won't. On Fridays (which is Mega Swagbucks Day), you are more likely to win more points. There are tons of other ways to earn swagbucks besides searching, including taking surveys and shopping!

You can also follow the Swagbucks facebook page because they often tell you where to go to find codes which will give you more swagbucks.

If you are confused, don't worry! I will be doing another post that explains Swag Bucks even more!

Until then, head on over and get signed up if you're interested.

Swagbucks' Makeover

If you've been on Swagbucks recently, you've probably noticed that they've changed their swag. They have a new style and finding things may take some adjusting, but it's oh so worth it when you're getting paid to use their site!

Here's how to get your daily swagbucks:
Daily poll (1 sb): You go to "Answer" tab at the top of the page.
NOSO (2 sb): This is found under "Discover."

Here's how all the tabs are broken down:
  • SHOP: This is where you go to do your shopping & earning. All you have to do is pick your favorite store, but be sure to go to that store's site through Swagbucks' link. This is how they keep track of how much you spent so that they can award you swagbucks!

  • SEARCH: This page is pretty identical to Google's page, but it's for Swagbucks. You can even make it your home page. Go here and search for whatever it is that you're looking for.

  • WATCH: Swagbucks TV is where you can earn swagbucks by watching videos.

  • PLAY: Go here to relax and play tons of fun games!

  • ANSWER: This is where you go to earn swagbucks by taking surveys, doing the daily poll (as mentioned before), and other tasks

  • REWARDS: Of course this is my favorite tab on the Swagbucks page. This is where you cash in your hard earned swagbucks for gift cards and other amazing rewards!
You can also learn how to redeem swagcodes here.

How are you doing on Swagbucks? I started at zero at the beginning of the year and now I have almost 1,500 swagbucks. That's enough for three $5 Amazon gift cards (if I choose to go that route). If you have done the daily poll and NOSO every day since the first post I wrote about Swagbucks (November 29) you would have around 288 swagbucks. More than halfway to a $5 gift card JUST by doing two easy peasy things. You've got this!

Disclosure: This post contains referral links. If you sign up for Swagbucks through my links, I will receive an incentive (when you earn swagbucks, I will earn that same amount).
