This is my one chance a year to stock up on items I use on a daily basis at rock bottom prices, allowing me to stockpile what I need to provide for my family for several months to come. The above photo was my trip from Feb. 2011. Total $146.02,  OOP $25.43, … [Read more...]

How To Read a Store Matchup


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

Reading a Store Matchup A Store Matchup is a very important part of couponing. The nice thing about sites putting out matchups is that they are doing the work for you. I know in the beginning they were a little confusing to me so we will try to help you navigate them. Most sites are different depending on whether they use a plug in or just type the matchups manually.  However, the basic parts of a matchup will be the same.

Kingsford Charcoal Fiasco While I am not yet ready to assume that the ambiguous comment left on the Facebook page of Kingsford Charcoal is their true response to the $5.00 coupon that was on coupons.com yesterday, I am beginning to think that the company has a serious PR problem.

Nabisco Testing Trip   I decided to run errands today to test the Nabisco $3/3 coupon from the 1/8 SmartSource inserts. When we have a potentially controversial coupon we like to research it for you and for ourselves. Sometimes that means taking it to the store and talking with the Mgr or calling the manufacturer directly. This is one of those coupons because the photo shows full size boxes but the verbiage says ANY. So off I go to test 4 stores. None of the managers or cashiers … [Read more...]
