Victoria's Secret Deal

Our “Non-Super Sister” (the one that doesn’t help with this site) is BIG into Victoria’s Secret.  This is for you!
When you spend $10 at Victoria’s Secret in the month of March, you’ll get a card worth at least $10 to use in April!  My guess is this is the same deal they ran back in November.  I like VS.  Not as much as my Non-Super Sister who has like 93 pairs of panties from there, but I still do.  :o) 

Thanks for the heads up, Couponing to Disney!

CVS Run 2/26/2011

Ok, I really try not to do these deals at the end of the week because none of you will have time to run uptown to do the same, but I just got back to town yesterday, so please forgive me.  But I still did well so I want to show it off :o)

Ok, my CVS is having their grand opening,
so I scored some extra free stuff from their Grand Opening coupons.
Mentos 50c – used 50c off coupon SS 02/06/11 (ex 3/30/11) = FREE
2 Orbit Gum $1 each – used $1/2 Printable (no longer available???) – 50c each
2 Dawn Hand Renewal 94c – used $1 off coupon from P&G Rebate Coupon Booklet (NLA) = 2 FREE
2 Oral B Power Brushes $6 each (ugh, couldn’t find my coupons!) = $12
Crest Vivid 3D Toothpaste $3.29 – used $1 off from P&G Rebate Coupon Booklet (NLA) = $2.29
CVS Oral Rinse $2.99 – used $3 off CVS personal care item = FREE
Excedrin Migraine $4.89 – used FREE Excedrin (from Facebook? NLA) = FREE
Excedrin Extra Strength $4.69 (with FREE Excedrin PM 8ct!) – used FREE Excedrin (from Facebook? NLA) = FREE
Dentyne gum $1.29 – used FREE coupon from CVS Grand Opening = FREE
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups 89c – used FREE candy bar coupon from CVS Grand Opening = FREE
Ruffles Chips 99c – used FREE 99c bag of chips (NLA) = FREE
Also used $10/$20 Purchase coupon from CVS Grand Opening
Saved $10.75 from sale prices
Saved $30.25 from coupons
Total = $5.16 plus tax! 
PLUS – I received $3.29 (Crest Toothpaste) and $6 (2 Oral B Toothbrushes) in ECB for next time!
I also like CVS because they are running a special through the end of next week where you buy $20 worth of Excedrin products, you get $10 ECB.  HOWEVER, you do NOT have to buy that all in one trip!  They were out of the Excedrin I had more coupons for, so I “bought” the two free ones this time around and they keep track of that on my ECB Card, so when I return this week once their shelves are restocked, I just scan my ECB Card when I buy the next batch of Excedrin to earn my $10 in ECB! 
They also are running a special where you buy $30 in P&G products and you’ll get $10 in ECB.  On my receipt it says that I have purchased $1.88 during this promotion and that I need to spend $27.62 before the end of the promotion in order to get that $10 in ECB. 
Oops!  I almost forgot!
I ran up to CVS this morning to grab some caffeine.  (Where do I begin?  I have had ONE 7 hour night of sleep since Dad passed, so on a day where I have all 4 rug rats at home by myself, I was splurging!)
No idea where my receipt is, but I scanned my ECB Card at their Magic Coupon Scanner and out popped a $2 off any purchase.  SO, I bought a Dr. Pepper and Mt Dew on a B1G1 Pepsi sale, used the $2 off coupon and got both for FREE.  Plus bought the Sprite for the kids with the FREE Coke product coupon from their Grand Opening Flyer.  So, 3 pops for FREE.  Yeah.  I like that :o)

CVS Ad 2/27/2011

Thanks, Deal Seeking Mom, for putting together the great deals at CVS this week!  I’m going to dig out my coupon stash and make sure I have a few of those Oral B coupons!  I’ve been waiting for a deal like this to get some power toothbrushes!

Swag Bucks

If you haven’t signed up for Swag Bucks, do it now!  You will get 80 Swag Bucks just for getting started!  Then earn Bucks for random searching you do on the internet and you trade in those Bucks for gift cards (my favorite is Amazon and Barnes and Noble) or lots of other items in their store (TVs, coloring books, Tshirts, etc).  This is how I, Sister C, paid for 3/4 of my Christmas presents last year!  If you EVER have any questions about it, don’t hesitate to ask! 

Enter CouponingBDay when signing up to earn that extra 50 Swag Bucks! (You get 30 when you sign up normally)  It is Swag Bucks’ 3rd Birthday on Monday, so get going now, my guess is that Monday is going to be a fantastic day on their site for winnings, etc!
