*Expired* Coupons 4 Mom: Have fun saving!

by Freebies4Mom on July 3, 2008 7:46 am

 I love shopping the bargains and always have but I have never really done the coupon thing except here or there but now that’s all I do! . . .You save so many of us mom’s money!. . . It is so much fun and I owe all of it to you!” -JoDell

Another weekly update, another way to help you save some money! It’s inspiring to hear from readers like JoDell. I love to help you to save money on your groceries, and have a little fun doing it. And it’s also fun to hear that my readers are shopping smarter by combining sales, coupons and rebates!

I just went to Kroger and purchased the Pert Plus Botanicals shampoo. It was $3.35 and I had a $3 off coupon from this past Sunday’s paper (6/29/08). On the outside of the bottle there was a mail-in rebate offer for the price of the bottle (up to $3.99). I just made a profit of $3 and got a free bottle of shampoo!!”Jeannine

COUPONS, INC.

This is my weekly update on what’s new from Coupons, Inc. – the company that manages the Coupons.com and “bricks” printable coupons.


Purple “Quick Print” Coupons

Have you seen my purple “quick print” coupon ad in the right column, just below the “Hottest 4 Coupons” list? This is where you can quickly scan the list of 65 coupons and print the ones you want. It’s a quicker way to print coupons, and they will print thee to a page. If you’ve already printed your limit of a coupon, it will not appear on the list. Also, the list may vary slightly based on your zip code if you’ve entered it on the Coupons.com site before. I hope you enjoy this smart coupon printing tool, and thank you for supporting my blog by printing through it!

Thank you so much for putting this list together. I don’t comment often, but I love your blog and check it every day! Thanks for all of the work that you put in.

Alaina – I don’t have any specific tips for you with the printing problem. Just a general suggestion to clear your cookies and temporary internet files. This causes me trouble a lot and I always forget to try it and see if it clears up my computer problems. You could also try using a different browser and see if you have better success.

I also have trouble printing from coupons.com. I use internet explorer and it says the installation is successful but then later says it was unsuccessful or not able to complete. I’ll try to clear the cookies and internet files. Several of my friends have never been able to print from there either. I’m hoping I can figure it out as I’m missing out on alot of great coupons : ) I love your website – I check it out each day.

I don’t have a printer (long story) so i usually don’t click on the printable coupon links but today i tried something new. I went to the help button in the lower left hand corner, from there i was sble to enter my home address so they could mail me a coupon. Has anyone else ever done this? Do they really send you a coupon?

Reply

Heather July 3, 2008 at 5:06 pm

Yes, Becky – they will really mail you a coupon! But usually it’s only one coupon – and it will be a color print – so if you shop at a store that doesn’t accept printables it won’t help you get around that problem. Let me know when you get your coupon in the mail and I’ll highlight this feature in a future post!

Thanks for the heads up on the Pert Plus Botanicals — worked for me at Kroger tonight. $3.13 here, with the peel off mail-in rebate.

I check your blog and really appreciate any/all savings 😀 I question however how it is ethical to print a coupon off 10 times…elzie

Heather July 5, 2008 at 2:05 pm

Elzie – Thanks for the comment! It sounds like you are referring to the Planters Coupon which I posted several different links to. In my opinion it is ethical to print 2 coupons per link. Each link is provided by the manufacturer (through Coupons.com). If they wanted to limit the printing of this coupon to only 2 per computer then they would only publish one link instead of several. This is my personal opinion. Of course there is a lot of gray area when it comes to ethics for printable coupons, so you have to decide for yourself what you feel is ethical to do when printing coupons. A unique feature of my blog is that I do not post PDF coupons (many other blogs do) because these can be printed hundreds of times and are often fraudulent. Even if they aren’t fraudulent coupons, they are often abused and some people will print them and sell them on eBay. I do not want to contribute to this type of coupon abuse in any way, so I will pass on posting the files for these types of coupons (whether they are verifed as real or not).

I couldn’t find the coupon on your Quick List for General Foods International. Did I miss it?

Reply

Heather July 6, 2008 at 8:07 am

Natalie – The General Foods International coupon is no longer available. I did a search for it and can’t find it showing up anywhere. Maybe it will come back – the coupon offers change daily so it’s hard to keep up with all the changes!

Natalie July 6, 2008 at 12:22 pm

Thanks for checking on that Heather! It very rare to find one for GFI Coffee anyway, in my experience. Maybe some other time…

Reply

Heather July 6, 2008 at 12:59 pm

I’ll keep my eye out for a new GFI coupon and post it separately just for you! I enjoy them as a treat once in awhile as well.

has anyone ever had problems using online coupons at walmart or other places where they’ll only accept online coupons that are not cut out? i usually print coupons on both sides of the paper and just cut them out (they even have the little scissors image on the coupon). the walmart associate wouldn’t take my coupon because it didn’t have the website printed on it and said they couldn’t get reimbursement from the manufacturer unless i give her the whole page. the manager couldn’t provide me with any written policy about it, instead she just said no and walked away. btw, are they discontinuing the johnson buddis bars? i couldn’t find them anywhere except 2 left at walmart, and i couldn’t use my coupon =(

Heather July 7, 2008 at 10:55 am

Yvonne – Print out Walmart’s coupon policy and take it with you. I have a post titled “Walmart’s Coupon Policy” so just enter that in my search box in the top right. Try to contact your Walmart’s store manager, not just the floor manager. Walmart should accept printable coupons even if they are not on the whole page.I’m still seeing Johnson’s Buddies at the stores I shop at!

THANK YOU Heather for responding to my post! I agree with you about the PDF’s – ugh, those I admit to using twice for something, when I really should have just done it once. Overall – it is always grand to save a buck, but I had to consider how it made me feel, and the example to my kids. Thank you for explaining, and I do see that some coupons are only able to be printed once IF that is indeed what the manf./co. intended…Again, thank you for your site – and all your information!elzie

For those having problems printing bricks coupons…I had the same problem when using Internet Explorer. When I downloaded Mozilla Firefox, I was able to print the coupons.http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/Mozilla is much faster, also, than IE.

I am new to this website. I was on the page titled “Coupons for Mom. Have fun saving” where a little bit down the page she states “Have you seen my purple “quick print” coupon ad in the right column, just below the “Hottest 4 Coupons” list? This is where you can quickly scan the list of 65 coupons and print the ones you want.” I don’t see these quick print coupons. I have not printed any coupons from any website nor have I signed up at this or any coupon website. I have noticed that pretty much every website you would like to print a coupon from requires you to sign up. Can you tell me if I have to sign up on this website to access the quick print coupons or if I am just looking in the wrong area for them.

I changed the color from purlple to black and the location from the right to the left sidebar. I think they ask for your zipcode at Coupons.com to print coupons, but that’s it. Hope they work for you!-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom
