*HOT* Save your Excedrin Coupons!!!

I know many of you have or have requested the coupons for FREE Excedrin. CVS, starting 1/2 will have a deal that you buy $20 worth of Excedrin products, you will get $10 ECB! So if you have a couple of these coupons, this could be a possible money maker for you! If you have not requested yours yet, go to and click on "health care" on the left hand side, or keep browsing until you see the ad on the right hand side for free Excedrin. You should be able to request one for Excedrin Extra Strength as well as one for Excedrin Migraine. There is also a high value coupon on the same site for $3 off Excedrin PM that will go great with the deal also. Unfortunately, I doubt if you request the coupons now if you will get them by the end of the sale:( But you can still get some free Excedrin!! :)
**Update** There is also a $1 off Excedrin coupon at Remember that the coupons will reset on the first of print now if you want to use these!

CVS Mini-heist 12/30!! Paid $1.74 +tax for $21.97 worth of merchandise

So my husband needed some eggs (because I have been sick and I have not been doing very good on my grocery shopping:) So I decided to run to CVS and get a dozen. Their price wasn't great, but I knew they were on sale for $1.49, which for a drug store is not too bad. And of course when I said I was going to CVS to get eggs my husband said "OK, see you in a couple hours." He knows me too well :) Though I was gone 25 minutes, not a couple hours.I bought $21.97 worth of merchandise for $1.74. Not a huge heist...but the eggs alone were $1.50!

Here is what I did

First Transaction:
Tone body wash is $3.99 and you get $3 back in ECB. I lucked out and found one type of Ton body wash that was on clearance for $2.74!! I used the $1 off Tone coupon from
Paid $1.74 +tax and received $4 in ECB!! ($3 for the body wash $1 I earned for my Green Bag tag! Go here to read more on what a green bag tag incentive is)

Second Transaction:

One dozen eggs-$1.50
Faith Hill "True" perfume and body lotion set was originally $14.99, on clearance for $7.49
-Used $5 off coupon from November All You magazine (I have a free subscription)
-Used $4 ECB from first transaction. (She had to make the $3 ECB $2.98 because I was 2 cents short, it wasn't worth getting a filler for 2 cents. You can always just ask them to mark the ECB down. I rarely do this as its throwing away money...unless its something like 2 cents.)
Paid nothing out of pocket except for tax!!

I know that this was a transaction with some coupons and ECB's others might not have...but I am just sharing this to help you see how you can combine coupons and clearance deals to MAKE money:) After all...I only paid $1.74, and they gave me back $4 to spend how I wanted :) Go here to learn more on how to save money at CVS!

Some "frugal" events are taking place tonight!

There are a few different helpful events happening tonight that can help you learn to coupon and how to get the most for your money!

The first, at 8 PM Eastern time TLC will be airing "Extreme Couponing." This show will feature everyone's favorite Krazy Coupon Lady, as well as other extreme couponers. Set the DVR to record...I have a feeling this will be very interesting and insightful!

At 9 PM eastern time there will be a live chat with the "frugal community." I have participated in these chats before and they are VERY insightful and I learned sooo much from them. Make sure you have your pen and paper handy! Many of my tricks and information I received from these chats. Go here to create and account. (You can use your facebook account) The instructions on getting into the chat should be posted around that time. Hope to see you there! ;)

Rite Aid Heist 12/29-Spent 4.59 for $170.28 of items!!

HOLY MOLY! I had a GREAT week this week in my Rite Aid heist!! One thing to keep in mind...I had the $20 off coupon from the Holiday Gifts of Savings promotion last month. SOOO that makes a difference in my first transaction. But still...even if you copied me, you would get all of this for $24.50...which still isn't bad! I would have probably left the diapers out if I did not have that $20 coupon. That made up for about $15 alone. So here it is...I paid $4.59 for $170.28 worth of items (That is BEFORE the sale price on that $170.28 total. I can't believe ANYONE would shop at a drug store full price! lol)

Transaction 1:

(This is the one where I had the $20 off you may want to keep that in mind if you are copying...not as good of a deal without it.)

2-boxes of Keloggs Special K cereal (reg $4.96. This is a HORRIBLE price, so unless you have the buy one get one free coupon DO NOT buy this!! haha)
4-canisters of Pringles (Sale $1.50 each, reg $2.20)
2-jumbo pack of Pampers diapers (Sale 8.88, reg 11.99)
1-Gillette Fusion Proglide shave collection (Sale 9.97, reg $10.99)

-$5/$25 purchase coupon FIRST
-$1 off 4 pringle stax from previous inserts
-$1 off Tampax from previous inserts
-2 $1.50 off Pampers coupons from previous inserts
-$4 off Gillette Fusion razor from previous inserts
-Buy 1 Get 1 Free Special K coupon (was a special print out from a few weeks ago, no longer available)

I used my $20 off coupon I earned from Holiday gifts of savings.
Paid $3.34 + tax, received $11 +UP
($5 +up for razor, $1 for each Pampers, $1 for each Special K, $1 for Tampax, $2 for Pringles)
I JUST REALIZED I WAS GYPED! I should have received $12 +UP, not $11!! grrr....oh well. Check your receipts!!

2nd Transaction:

2-Butterfinger Snackerz (Reg 88 cents, this was a filler to reach the $25 for my coupon)
2-boxes of Special K cereal (Reg $4.79...YIKES! Only buy with the coupon!)

Spend 1 cent +tax out of pocket, receive $8 +UP
($5 +up for razor, $1 for 2 Progresso soups, $1 for each Special K)

3rd Transaction:

OK, this one is a little different. My store was out of the Charmin that is in ad for the $12.97 (Buy $20, receive $5 +UP.) So what she did to make up for it, was she gave me a DIFFERENT pack of Charmin which was on sale for $9.99, and gave me $5 off since she cannot just print a +UP. SOO....pretend like I just used $5 +UP from the previous transactions...make sense? Sorry that confuses things:( ) The actual deal is to buy $20 worth of the select Bounty or Charmin products, get $5 +UP. So she just let me keep $5 +UP and marked down the product...

1- Pack of Charmin (Jut to make things easy, we will say I bought it for $5 lol)
1- Bounty Paper towel 15 pk (sale $12.97, reg $18.99)

-1, 50 cents off Chex mix from Rite Aid Video Values
Use $6 in +UP from previous transactions
pay 25 cents + tax, receive $4 +UP ($2 from Nyquil, $2 from Chex Mix)
(Keep in mind that the Nyquil +UP is limit one. You will still get $5 price for future transactions, but can only get the $2 +UP once.)

5th Transaction:
1-Always pads (Sale 2.99, reg 3.99)
1-Vicks Sinex (Sale $5, reg 7.49)
-$4 off Vicks Sinex coupon from previous inserts
-$1 off Always coupon from previous inserts
-Use $2 +UP from fourth transaction
Pay 99 cents + tax

*I actually walked away with $2 +UP for my next purchase. I did not use all of the +UP from the third transaction.

New Rite Aid $5/$25 purchase printable for January!!

I know that most of your $5 off $25 purchase for Rite Aid printables will expire 12/31/2010. Here is one that does not expire until 1/31/2011! I as able to print it several times. (***UPDATE*** I am NOT 100% sure that this coupon can be used more than once. I have not tried it yet. My guess is it can, unless they are printing specific numbers for each person. I will let you know after I try to use it a second time:). )

Go to
Log in (You may need to make a free account with your Wellness + card.
Once logged in, click on Wellness+online option on the left hand side
Under Wellness offers click on "Get Your Offers"
You then should be able to print your coupon:)
I would print a few now...because I do not know if they will offer this for a long time or not. I had heard they were going to do away with these coupons all together...but that COULD just be a rumor! But I printed four just in case:)

Don't forget that the Video Values just reset yesterday! There should be some great coupons to match with your manufacturer's coupons! Also keep an eye out for the "hidden" $1/any non prescription purchase coupons! (I already know one is under the video for Rite Aid RX)

New Rite Aid Buy and Save +UP Promotion!!!

Rite Aid has yet another AWESOME promotion! I am glad they are having another good promotion after the Gifts of Savings ended. With this promotion, you buy $100 in any of the participating products before January 2, 2011 and receive $20 +UP! Your Wellness card will automatically track your progress and print the +UP once you reach the $100 goal. I am HOPING that this will be the BEFORE coupon amount of the product. That is how the Gifts of Savings program worked...and was definitely in our favor!! Here is a list of participating products. Sounds like almost the whole store ;) I would not go out of your way to reach the $100 for this promotion...but if you happen to reach it in your heists...all the better!

***UPDATE 12/29***
I now have confirmation (from my own receipt) that the total is BEFORE coupons!! So you should be able to add up to the $100 pretty quickly without even trying! I did not even pay attention to the buy and save stickers, and I still contributed over $36 toward my $100! (And only spent $4 for the whole lot hehe)

Your wellness card will keep track of your $ toward the reward for you! After each purchase it will tell you how close you are to the goal!

Buy Christmas Presents and Help Animals at the Same Time!!

Do you love animals? Check out the Animal Rescue Site store. You can buy dozens of different items, with all proceeds going towards the rescue and housing of animals. If you click on an item, it will actually tell you what your purchase will be able to fund for the rescue. Great opportunity for some fun gifts/stocking stuffers, and donating at the same time! Check out the cool reusable shopping bags! They are on sale for $8 for three of them, and this purchase alone will buy 14 bowls of animal food for the rescue. I love these types of reusable bags, because they fold up and stay folded with a snap on the outside. Fits in a diaper bag or purse!  Or how about the ADORABLE purple and black paw mug for $5 (sale price!) also buys 14 bowls of food. Great stocking stuffers for the animal lovers in your life!! (Or for yourself!)
