Free baby diapers (size 4)

Call Neito Research (1-888-412-5552) or email them at NietoResearchInc@aol.com. Tell them you would like to participate in a diaper study. If you get voice mail, leave a message, and they will call you back. Leave your name, phone number and your child's current weight/diaper size. They are currently looking for babies wearing size 4/large diapers. Participants that send an email rather than call will have first priority.
I have done this twice when Nicole was wearing size 2 and then size 4 diapers: each time they sent me a package of diapers (mega size that would last us at least a week!) along with evaluation form that I had to complete. Pretty easy and you can't beat free diapers and you also get a chance to give your feedback to the manufacturer. :)

Upromise: $100 000 for college sweeps + eCoupons

Take the time to plan for your child's future.

I'm sure you're already a member of UPromise.com and every time you shop at your favorite grocery or drug store, up to 8% of qualifying purchases gets deposited into your college savings account. It doesn't cost you a dime - not even a penny! and the contributions are made based on sales price (before coupons and other promos). But did you know that every time you use your grocery or drugstore cards registered with Upromise, you are entered into their $100,000 sweepstakes?
You did?
But guess what I just received in my email?
They are now offering eCoupons that you can download to you cards and save at the stores in addition to manufacturer's and store coupons!
I am sooooo excited! (can you tell? :)) I shop a lot at CVS and between manufacturers', store coupons and Extra Care bucks I spend very little out of pocket, and almost every time I get something put into a UPromise.com account for my daughters' education. And now I'll be saving even more with their eCoupons! :) They say that offers change every month and I don't know if they are based on your prior purchases, but 15 out of 17 coupons I was offered were for products that we usually buy (our preferred brands, actually). And there's even a $5 coupon for Enfamil formula (my sis-in-law is going to love that - Enfamil hardly ever has coupons out, and this is the formula they use).

Tea freebies

CVS: heads up! Summer clearance 90% off, this week's moneymakers and freebies

Summer stuff ('Fun in the Sun' line) is 90% off at both CVS stores in our area! Not much left, but worth looking into: I got 250-pk of fancy drinking straws for $.19/pk (an our daughters go through straws like crazy! the youngest wants to drink everything through a straw, and the oldest uses them for craft projects) I'm one happy mama :) There were also plates, cups, napkins, placemats, bubbles, sand and water toys on clearance. Can't beat the prices at 90% off!

Another thing to look for at CVS is Ambi soap. It costs $1.99 per bar and gives $3 ECBs back; limit is 3 per household (it's September monthly deal)

Ours had 2 varieties: Complexion Cleansing Bar and Complexion Cocoa Butter, and both worked for this deal.

Another moneymaker this week is L'Oreal Genesis, which is FREE after ECBs, and you can also use a coupon from the most recent Sunday paper, or a printable here.

ChexMix is on sale for $1 this week, and would be FREE with a $1 coupon from here. You can print two coupons per PC. Here is a printable for $.60 - not as good as free, but not bad if you have reached your print limit on $1 coupon.

Another yummy freebie is Malt-O-Meal cereal: also on sale for $1, and there are $1 coupons here, here and in the cute little widget on my side bar :)

And the winner is...

We have drawn a winner of a $5 Sears gift card last night, and it's...

Complete a short survey to receive a free trial size sample of of Nature’s Essential Ingredient Silk Almond Serum with Jojoba.

Shopping with coupons: lessons learned

Shopping during double and triple coupon days has been quite a learning experience for me. Here are the lessons that I learned:

1) if the stores are not doing this promo often, there is a great chance that they are not prepared to handle all smart shoppers that will jump in on an extra-savings opportunity. The doubling/tripling coupons started last Thursday, and there were only 3 checkout lanes open on Thurday night. The lines were huge and it took forever to check out.

2) if this is a limited-time action (ours was 4-day only promo), it will likely attract customers who may not normally shop in the store, but have a bunch of coupons to redeem. Not only this would add to the checkout time, you would also face your competition: searching for the same items you have coupons for, sometimes beating you to them and emptying the shelves if something's a particularly good deal.

3) speaking of the deals, with double and triple coupons they are awesome! I made one more trip to Shoppers during promo days (I needed to deposit my checks from surveys and reward programs, MySurvey and InboxDollars mostly, and my bank is conveniently located in Shoppers) and matched my coupons more carefully that time. Got a few products free or better:
  • Crab Classics imitation crabmeat (on sale for $1.99 each, free with doubled $1 coupon from here, limit 2 printouts per PC);
  • Easy Mac (on sale 10/$10 - 2 pks free with doubled $1/2 coupon from the most recent paper)
  • Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta (reg. $1.59/lb - better than free with doubled $1 coupon from the most recent paper)
  • Mt.Olive relish (2/$3 - free with tripled $.50 coupon from the paper)
  • French's mustard (priced between $1.20 and $1.34 - better than free with tripled $.50 coupon from the paper)
  • Rice-a-Roni or Pasta-Roni (10/$10 or 8/$10 - better than free with tripled $.50 coupon from here)
  • I also got a loaf of French bread free for a survey that printed at the bottom of my receipt last time around.
4) although it may be very tempting, next lesson is: do not try to redeem each and every coupon that you have. Just because it can be doubled or tripled doesn't mean you're getting the best deal: the product may be on sale at a competitor's store and you can get a better deal with the coupon redeemed for the face value there.

5) don't get discouraged if you can't redeem all the coupons you have! :) I have observed a couple trying to find ALL the items for ALL the coupons and getting very upset if they couldn't. It's not the end of the world. Seriously.

6) shop on Saturday. Our crazy sale run Thursday thru Sunday. All the early birds flew in on Thursday, and most of the folks I know were going to shop there on Sunday: they had to take the advantage of the promo, but needed to find/clip/organize their coupons. That leaves Friday when a lot of folks stock up for the upcoming weekend, and Saturday... when it was nice: some of the stuff that was sold out on Thursday got re-stocked and there were very few people in the store :)

7) it helps to organize the coupons by aisles. After the first trial run, I had a pretty good idea what is located where, and when I put my coupons in the order I'd expect to see the products in the store, it was a breeze to find what I needed.

8) if the coupon says "do not double" it doesn't mean it won't double at the register. This is something that I learned from comments to my earlier post, but haven't tried this time around. All the coupons I had doubled and tripled correctly (but none said "do not double" as I had separated and left those at home)

This was fun! :)
I hope Shoppers (or any other grocery store in our area) does it again!

Thanks so much to everyone who contributed their ideas for school lunches for Victoria!

Staples: last week of school supplies freebies

Staples has 3 instant freebies this week: 12-pk erasers (limit 2 per customer), pencil sharpeners (limit 2 per customer), pocket folders (limit 10 per customer). No tax charged in MD, so 14 items per person are 100% FREE :)

Victoria's folders always get messy after a while so it was nice to pick up some extras for free. Our Staples had 7 colors to choose from.

Friday, August 22, 2008


So, this was true: Shoppers triples coupons up to $.50 and doubles up to $1! I spent some time clipping all and every coupon up to a $1 that didn't say "do not double" and went on a Shopper's quest last night. The store was buzzing with the couponers all looking for the same items, comparing prices and waiting patiently at checkout lanes... that seemed to take forever!

I got a lot of stuff and learned a few lessons along the way.

I will not list everything individually (and I most certainly won't remember every coupon I used), but it's over $99 worth of stuff that I paid less than $28 for! Granted, I got some items that I wouldn't normally purchase or got multiples of something only because of the coupon requirements, but I bought NOTHING that we wouldn't use, and our fridge is full, so I'm happy (and as an added bonus we'll get to try some things that we don't usually buy).

I got 4-pk Scott toilet paper (ultra mega rolls!) and Scott paper towels, Marcal napkins (that's my favorite find - only $.19 after doubled coupon!), Quacker granola bars, 4-pk of Dannon yougurt, Warm Delights dessert bowl, Glade candle, huge bag of Malt-O-Meal cereal, 3 boxes of Yogos for Victoria (she's been asking for them forever and this is the first time I actually bought them... @$.50 each after coupons and sent the UPCs for Yogos Notebook Offer too :)), Ronzoni dinner kit, Pasta-Roni, Rice-a-Roni, 4 boxes of Success Rice, Daisy Sour Cream, French's mustard (regular and 2 gourmet), 2 jars of Mt.Olive relish, 4 cans of new Campbell's Select Harvest soup, 6-pk of Fiber One yogurt, Smart Balance omega oil and buttery spread, Crisco omega oil, 2 tubs of Hilshire Farm deli meats, deli sliced Sargento cheese, Bob Evans fresh sausages, Philly Cheesecake filling (huge tub!), Hilshire Farm smoked sausage (the only item I didn't use coupon for - this is something DH asked for) and Crab Classic crab meat. (Phew, I think that's it!).

Most of my coupons came from recent papers, but here are the printables that are worth mentioning:

1) Crab Classic is on sale this week for $1.99, there's a $1 printable here, that doubles to $2 = your crab meat is FREE

2) Rice-a-Roni are on sale 10/$10, there's a $.50 printable here, that triples to $1.50, so you are actually getting $.50 overage!

3) Pasta Roni are on sale 8/$10 and 10/$10 (depending on variety), use the same coupon to get it better than free! [you can print 2 coupons per computer]

4) Malt-o-Meal cereal: HUGE bag is $2.69 (and they have great varieties too), there's a $1 printable here (or print it from the widget on the right side of my page or below), that doubles to $2 = your final price is $.69!
