*EXPIRED* Coupons 4 Mom – Like Printable Money

by Freebies4Mom on June 19, 2008 7:46 am

My successful Walmart shopping trip reinforced the concept of coupons being like printable money. I want to help you make coupons work for you!

 
The Affluent Pauper answers the question “Aren’t you sacrificing healthy eating with junk food when you use coupons?” with a wonderful list of printable coupons from companies that specialize in natural and organic products.
*******************
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 ads in the right and left columns? This is where you can quickly scan the list of 55 printable coupons, and select the ones you want to print. It’s a quicker way to print coupons, the coupons will print three to a page. And if you’ve already printed your limit of a coupon, it will no longer appear in the list. It’s just a smart coupon printing tool, and it’s a way to support my blog.
What’s my favorite coupon this week?
Save $1.10 Wanchai Ferry Dinnner Kit – A slightly better coupon than the $1 you can get on their website here. I was hesitant to try this new dinner kit until I read the claim that they do not add MSG (but please read Jen’s posted comment about this). It was a great way for me to speed up a healthy stir fry dinner! Watch for a sale and use your coupon then.
What coupons am I printing to take to Walmart?
(please note prices may vary at different Walmart stores)
Save $1.00 Muir Glenn Organic diced tomatoes – final price is $0.24 after coupon
Save $1.00 Edge shave gel or cream – final price is $0.50 after coupon
Save $1.00 Yoplait Yo-Plus 4 pack – final price is $1.12 after coupon
What’s new this week?
Save 50 cents Chobani Greek Yogurt
Save $1.00 on Two Northland Cranberries 100% juice blends
Save $2.00 Gourmet Dining when you buy any two skillet meals
Save $2.00 Schiff Vitamins glucosamine product
Save $5.00 Schiff Move Free
Save $1.00 Scotch-Brite Cook Top Cleaner starter kit
Bricks Coupon List – this is a giant list of 83 “bricks” coupons scattered across tons of different product websites. This is a great list to browse if you are new to printable coupons. What’s new this week?
*************************
PRODUCT COUPONS
These are coupons that my readers have told me about and that have been in my “Hot” list but not in my posts.

$3 Planters product (9 oz. or larger) when you buy any three Kraft, Nabisco, or Oscar Meyer products (excluding single serve) – you can print this coupon twice by hitting the back button and it expires 8/31/08 (thanks Kari)

$1 Bertolli Premium Sauce in a pouch, print it twice (thanks Lori)

$2 Jane Cosmetics (thanks Julie)

$1 Wendy’s Premium Burger – you can get this coupon by signing-up for WendyMail (thanks Julie)

$1 Chex Mix

$7+ Nestle products

************************
eCOUPONS @ KROGER
This week I actually posted my freebies from Kroger. Remember that you can combine a paper coupon and an eCoupon on one item. When the items ring-up you will not see the eCoupon until the end of your transaction – then the eCoupons will appear immediately below each item on your receipt. Remember to check your receipt and to contact one of these coupon programs if your eCoupon does not deduct from the item you purchased, they will hopefully make the adjustment for you.
Unilever – I’ve saved $5.25 so far, the current coupons expire June 30 and include Bertolli, Knorr, Ragu, Wisk, Wish-Bone, Caress, Country Crock, Hellmans, and Suave. You can load up to 25 coupons total (Unilever + P&G;). The limit for Shortcuts is calculated separately.
P&G; – I’ve saved $10.70 so far. Those “B1G1 Free” eCoupons are still available and expire on June 30. Remember you can load up to 25 coupons total (Unilever + P&G;).
Shortcuts – I’ve saved $8.45 so far. The expiration dates vary: middle or end of the month. Load up to 20 coupons; lots of Betty Crocker, General Mills, and Huggies coupons. Did you know that when you use a coupon, usually it becomes available for you to load and use again?
*************************
You might want to take a look at the coupons in this Sunday’s paper, two coupon inserts and a good variety of coupons. You can get a sneak peak of the coupons at Taylortown.
I feel like my weekly Coupons 4 Mom feature is getting really long and I welcome your feedback on it. Wo
uld you like me to break things up a little so that I’ll give you shorter coupon updates? Are there other types of coupon news you want me to cover here? Do you want me to do a separate weekly roundup of everything I post that’s coupon-related? Please post a comment, I welcome Anonymous comments so it makes it easy for you to comment.
Have a great week of couponing!

Michelle – My Walmart has the Muir Glen by the canned tomatoes – but your Walmart might not carry it or might have a separate natural foods section.

I really enjoy these posts – and all of your posts :)I have a quick question though – Can you tell me in what department at Wal-Mart you’ve found the Muir Glen tomatoes? I have the coupons, and can’t find them at my local store. It’s a super walmart, with a full grocery.Thanks!

Thanks for everyone’s helpful feedback! I think I’m going to try to break things up a little to make for easier reading – and a less daunting task for me each Thursday morning. I like to let my post titles reflect what is in the post so that you can choose to read or ignore based on reading the title. Look for some improvements in the next few weeks that will help you scan my posts for what you want!

Hi Heather, I am having so much fun with you amazing blog! I have no idea how you have the time to find, post, shop for all these things but I am so glad you do!In reference to things getting too long. I definitely find that I can’t keep up with daily reading, entering contests, printing all the coupons that you post. But, I’m sure the more seasoned shoppers are saying give me more!

Also something to keep in mind, Heather…wouldn’t a higher quantity of posts generate more hits? Which, of course, is also better for you.For me, smaller posts are easier. They make for quicker reads and I like that. Sometimes in a longer post I tend to miss things because my impatient-internet-everything’s-gotta-be-fast-fast-fast brain mode, that stuff happens.

With food prices continuing to creep up, we all appreciate your coupon tips!As to formatting, I say use whatever approach is easiest for you. If it’s easier for you to break it up and post coupons as you find them, do that. If it’s easier to do one longer post a week, that’s great, too. Rest assured, whichever approach you choose – we’ll keep reading! Thanks!

I just posted Walmart’s Coupon Policy in a separate post. Print it and take it to your Walmart so that you can have an informed discussion with the store manager about accepting your printable coupons.

Heather, I am a busy mom of 2 under 3 yrs old and do not have time to look around the store to see what is on sale or price all items to match to my coupons. Please continue your post of cheap and free at Walmart and Kroger (king soopers for me). I read your email DAILY I can plan a better trip. Also I had a coupon for $1 off a Nivea product 2 oz or larger. My king soopers had a Nivea Cream (very small) but it is a 10oz for .99.Renee, Parker, CO

I LOVE this post every week! It is very helpful to me and I find more coupons with your help than I’m sure I would otherwise.

I’ve been getting two McDonald’s coupons with my Amazon shipments. One for a free no purchase necessary southern chicken biscuit sandwich, one for a southern chicken sandwich.They expire 6/30 though.

Thanks for the link to the organic and healthy coupons! I’m currently looking into a CSA (community supported agriculture)to delivery organic foods to my door! My neighbor does it and she says it’s not that much more expensive than the grocery stores organic foods. Espcially if you take the gas prices into consideration! They deliver everything from fresh organic milk, eggs, breads, fruits and veggies! I’m in the Southern CA area.

Heather -I personally like the list all in one convenient spot. But if you have to change it, I’ll live with it! : )To the anonymous poster -Walmart’s corporate coupon policy is online. Yes, THEY DO take internet coupons. Print it out and keep it with you when you shop there.

Jen – thanks for letting me know. I’m not an expert on decipherying the ingredients list. I do have a mild allergy to MSG – but have found this product does not bother me.

Jen June 19, 2008 at 11:18 am

I usually don’t comment but I love your site!! Thanks for all the coupons and tips. I also wanted to mention that the Wanchai dinners have hidden MSG in the form of autolyzed yeast extract- I’m really sensitive to it so I checked last week when their coupon came out. It might not be enough to bother some folks though and it is a good price!!

the WanChai Ferry Dinner kit is not only MSG free but really yummy and the meals turn out as good (if not better) than some I have had in a chinese rest. Everyone should take advantage of that coupon, I usually use two of the boxes though as it is small portions and I have a family of 5. You can also add extra veggies to it, I pick up the small corn in the international aisle as well as sliced carrots while I cook the rice. More nutritious and only pennies to spend.

My wal-mart won’t let me use printed coupons, they said it’s a company policy. Where is your wal-mart?

I love the coupon post as is but I am sure it is a lot for you to write out. I would like the same info and content but if it is easier for you to break it up it is fine. I especially like that you let us know if coupons are reset, it is hard for me to keep track of. Love your blog.
