Couponing Tips Tuesday – My Desk to Go My little “Desk to Go” has saved me countless times while out couponing so I offer it up to you as one of my couponing tips! You just never know when you’re going to see a deal you want to jot down, have to re-work a deal with the calculator, find out something is on sale that you’re after and the store coupon is still in the flyer.

Combining SavingStar Offers and Manufacturer Coupons – Yay or Nay?


This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

SavingStar Offers & Manufacturer Coupons Can you combine a manufacturer coupon with SavingStar offers? This one is a pretty easy answer and sadly, the answer is mostly no. The only exception being the “One or Many” offers. Those are not considered manufacturer coupons in and of themselves, they are cash back offers in essence. SavingStar is not a straight cash-back app though like Ibotta or Checkout51 and I think that’s where a lot of the confusion sets in. Although they do have some … [Read more...]

Find a Favorite Cashier We say time and time again to be nice to your store managers, and most especially, your cashiers and I have a perfect example for you. If you’ve been couponing for any length of time, you probably have your favorite cashier and more than likely you “Cashier Profiled” to find them. If you’re new to the couponing game, that just means that you get to know the types of cashiers that will give you problems with your coupons and the types that won’t. We all know the type … [Read more...]

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see Full Disclosure Policy for more information.

Do You Carry Your Coupon Policies? Do you keep up with your favorite store coupon policies? If not, you should be. I actually keep my coupon policies on my phone and a printed version of each in my binder. If I’m out I can use my phone, if I’m at home, I can use my hard copies. I also try to look up each store’s policy at least once a month to make sure there are no changes, and update my phone & hard copies as necessary. How many times have you gotten into a discussion with a cashier … [Read more...]

Have you ever thought to donate expired coupons to our Military Troops overseas? Most people don't know it, but at the overseas commissaries, our troops can use manufacturer coupons up to six months after they have expired.

Using BOGO Coupons on B2G1 Sales There are a lot of confusing scenarios in the coupon world, but few have left me stumped with the exception of Buy 2 Get 1 Free (B2G1) sales combined with Buy 1 Get 1 Free (BOGO) coupons. Then one day I decided to sit down and break it down. Since then I refer to my notes whenever using BOGO coupons comes at the same time as a B2G1 sale. I thought I’d break it down for you now, since I’m about to post a deal on Glade Plugins currently going on at Publix that … [Read more...]

Saturday Mail Delivery Stays Put

Keeping Saturday Mail Delivery Saturday mail delivery isn't going anywhere - at least for the time being. With Congress taking the plan off the table, the US Post Office released a statement yesterday saying they had no choice but to "delay the implementation, at least for the time being." So, we can all breathe a sigh of relief, at least through the fall. The Post Office Board of Governors is still arguing that they can't save money without changing the delivery schedule, but that will … [Read more...]

Buy Non-Food with Food Stamps As I was scrolling through Facebook last night, I stumbled across something that caught my attention.

Use Coupons to Make your Food Stamps Stretch Further Since coupons are a form of payment (the manufacturer reimburses the store), you can lower the … [Read more...]

Stacking Manufacturer Coupons with e-Coupons With so many stores tightening their coupon policies and manufacturers adding restrictive wording to coupons by the paragraph, this post is long overdue. Four to five times a week, I get a question on the wall, as a comment on our webpage or an email asking me if you are supposed to use Savingstar, Upromise or Cellfire in addition to manufacturer coupons. The short answer is no. Since Savingstar also runs Upromise, I will use them as the example. The … [Read more...]
