Some tips for Facebook Users

You will find lots and lots of companies who will offer up coupons and freebies on their facebook sites.  More often than not, you will be asked to allow them access to your information, and sometimes access to your friends information.  I do NOT feel comfortable allowing them access to my friends information on facebook.  So how does one avoid this and still get the coupons?  Set up another facebook account under a different email that still has your actual address, and when those companies require you to give access to your friends info, there won't be any info to give.  You will still be giving the companies the information that they need, and they are still gaining another fan.  Just a little helpful tip ;)

New Walgreen's "Spring Beauty Guide" Coupon Booklet

When you walk into Walgreen's, there are monthly coupon packs that you can pick up near the store ads.  There are plenty of these.  However, coupon books like this one are a little tougher to find, and you will usually have to ask for them.  I ask the person at the makeup counter first, they locate the coupons for me right away.  All of these coupons, with the exception of the ROC coupon, are store coupons, which means that they can be stacked with a manufacturer coupon to get you even more savings.

These are the coupons that you will find in this booklet:

$5/1 ActiFade Precision Age-Defying Complex 2oz, & three concealers, 0.2 oz ea
$2/1 Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup or Moisturizer
$1/1 any ROC Product
$1/1 Revlon Cosmetics
$2/1 Almay Cosmetics
$1/1 Maybelline Color Seansational Pearl Lip Color, FitMe Foundation or Powder, Lash Stiletto Mascara or Eye Studio Trios
$2/1 L’Oreal True Match Roller
$2/1 L’Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base
$2/1 L’Oreal Infalliable Le Rouge Lipstick
$2/1 L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara
$2/1 L’Oreal Revitalift Moisturizers
$5/1 Lumene Moisturizer or Serum
$1/1 Yes To Cucumbers Facial Towelettes, 30 pack
$1/1 VeripurHand Sanitizer Moisturizer, 3 oz.
$1/1 Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Pore Perfecting Toner, 16 oz.

If you have kiddos in diapers, also ask for the Infant Care Coupon booklet.  You will get coupons for diapers, wipes, formula, and ointment in that guide.

Thanks, WildforWags!

I wrote this post a while back, but just in case any of you missed it, here it is again:

The following sites change their coupons regularly:

Some of the sites will have repeat coupons, but there are a max number of times that you can print a coupon.  So if you max out on one, you'll be able to print more off of one of the others. is a site that actually has a database of coupons.  You'll need to create a free account, and then click on the database tab.  Most of the states in our area aren't listed, but you can click on midwest to search for coupons in our area.  If you're looking for a certain brand, type the name in the database and it will return a list of inserts from recent papers that had that coupon or give you a link to where you can print one off the net.

If there is a certain brand of product that you buy a lot of, do a search for the product and go to their website and facebook site.  If there is a tab marked coupons or promotions, click on it and you may be able to score some coupons there.

Today's free stuff at Walgreens

I received register rewards (RR) on three items:
Baby Magic: $3, got $3 in RR, so FREE!
Colgate Total Advance 4 oz $2.99, got $2.99 in RR.  I also used a 50 cent coupon, so this actually made me 50 cents.
Theraflu Warming Relief Caps $4.99, got $1 in RR.  I also used a $2/1 coupon found HERE and will be submitting for a $4.99 rebate found in the 2/13 Sunday paper SmartSource insert, so this will be a $3 money maker.

I also would have purchased a couple of bottles of Motrin that have RR this week, but these were gone already :(

Keep in mind that you will need to find enough items in store to use your register rewards on, and today I chose milk.  Their sale this week is milk for $2.49 (even the red top milk).  At the Walgreen's in Norfolk, they stock Robert's milk, so you can also use the 55 cents off coupons from HERE to get a really good deal on milk!

Also, I forgot that you need to have as many items as you have coupons for, and register rewards coupons count, so I wasn't able to use Roberts coupons for two of the milks that I purchased, but still a great deal.  If you are looking for some filler items and have some of the $1/2 Pringles coupons, the Pringles Grab n Gos are on sale this week with an in ad coupon for 79 cents, so you can get these for 29 cents a piece with both coupons.

Walgreens trips take some planning ahead of time, but they are generally worth it in the end.
