Free $10 @ Kohls

Check your mailbox. This is what I found in mine today!!!

Publix Thera Flu Money Maker


If you have access to a printer, you can do the same deal seen here. On each bottle that you buy, you could "make" $1. Here's how it goes:

(10) Thera Flu items
sale: 2/$7.00 (or $3.50 each)
used: $5/2 Publix Green Advantage Q
used: $2/1 (print)
I found peelies on them too ($1/1). It won't be a money maker with the peelies, but it will be completely FREE!
total: + $6.00

(2) Frozen chicken breasts
sale: 2/$10
total: $10 - $6 (in overage) = $4


Target trip 11/30

So I ran into Target to get some of the Vaseline lotion that would only be $0.19. I also printed off some of the (new...usually only $.75/1) $1/1 Suave hair care TQ. I noticed that Target has reduced the price on the Suave shampoos to only $0.84 a piece. That means, I potentially, could make $0.16 per bottle...AND I DID! My cashier allowed overage! I was so excited! And I got my Christmas dress for only $7.00! Here's how it went:

(4) Vaseline lotions
sale: $2.69
used: $1/1 peelie or $1/1 MQ (11/14 RP)
used: $1.50/1 TQ (here)
total: $0.19 per bottle

(4) Suave shampoos
sale: $0.84
used: $1/1 TQ (here)
total: + $0.64

GRAND TOTAL: $0.41 (about $0.05 per item)

Walgreens on Cyber Monday!

So I went in on Sunday to get some herbashine hair color for only $3.99 (used in-ad Q @ $5.99 and MQ for $3/1) and when I paid (in cash) I received a $3/$15 purchase store Q. It says it's for you to use to "stock up register rewards." That really excited me! $3 more to spend...so I got my list together last night. Yes, I know there is a PG rebate going on out there, but I just don't have the Qs I need to spend $50, so I'm not killing myself to get the rebate. But I did get some awesome deals today with very little oop which is what I like! Here we go:

Transaction #1
(4) Dove deodorants
sale: $1.99 with in-ad Q
used: $1.50 MQ (came in free samples)

~concealer (2): $1.99 (reduced to $0.99)
used: $5/$10 purchase of WnW items (from Nov. AY mag)
total: $1 for EVERYTHING
***Now that I'm looking closer at what I did and at the receipt, I "spent" $10 before the 50% off sale, so I may not have used this correctly, but it still went through. Sorry if that makes no sense.***

I used $5 RR and my $3/$15 store catalina.

Grand total: $1.87

Transaction #2
(2) Nyquil/Dayquil
sale: 2/$10 (earn $5 RRs)

Shutterfly's FREE photo card deal!

This deal is great because it requires NO COUPONS, although it does require you to have a blog. So I guess this goes out to all my fellow bloggers:

Shutterfly is giving away 50, yes 50 FREE photo Christmas cards this year to people that blog about this amazing deal! Over the last few years, our number of Christmas cards to send out has increased. I’m pretty sure last year we had to order 40! And I just love getting photo Christmas cards from all of my friends and family. We have a bulletin board in our kitchen that I keep them on all year until I get everyone’s new ones. I shopped through shutterfly.com's Christmas cards last night and there are too many good ones to choose from (and most of them even say MERRY CHRISTMAS...imagine that!) I really love their collage cards that allow you to put more than 1 pic one it: like this one. I also like this one...such a good FL Christmas card: peppermint palms. You can also personalize items such as calendars, Christmas gift tags, or even wall art. The possibilities are endless and inexpensive. I've always received things in the mail MUCH quicker than their site mentioned upon time of my order. And if you are on facebook and are interested in this deal go here.
