Great Coupons !

Coupons Inc.

           $1.00/1 !

FYI:  Did you know that some places let you
come back with your coupons if you've forgotten
them? GE is one of the stores that allows this.
I shopped at Sparkle market the other day. I found
Bob Evans roll sausage (sage only) on sale for .99 !
Great price on its own so I grabbed some. I bought 5
and paid $4.95. I called later when I got home and
explained that I had  forgotten my coupons. The
manager said I could come back with them! Woohoo !
 came back with the coupons and got $2.50 back.
What a deal ! Don't be afraid to ask.  I'm glad I did !

Kerrygold Coupon

(this coupon will be expiring soon)

Ohio -

Where not to use your Kerrygold coupons:

Trader Joes - does not except Internet coupons
Heinens -  does not except Internet coupons for free items

I had a bad experience at Heinens with this coupon.
To be fair, I will write more about it after I've heard
back from customer service !

Side note :

I wrote customer service at Kerrygold. I explained
that many stores were not excepting the coupon I
had gotten from the survey. They responded promptly
and are sending  me a real (non internet) coupon! 
I'm not sure if  it will be for the free cheese or a dollar
off amount. I am very impressed with their service.
I am also excited to try the cheese it looks good.
They are updating their website also and including
recipes. Maybe we will be able to get more coupons in the
future :)


Free Kerrygold cheese or butter after brief survey.
So easy !! I just did this in a matter of minutes !
Take the survey here .

** You will need to have your printer ready.You will get a link to the
coupon after you've completed the survey. I was able to print 2 ! **

Wondering where to use your coupon?

Cheap Sunday Papers

Nice headline huh? Lol !

Some stores sell discounted newly expired Sunday papers .
I was able to buy Sunday's paper at CVS for .25 a piece on
MONDAY !  I got 5 of them. This was a great find since there
were 3 coupon inserts last Sunday.  I was soooo excited .........
( = 5 Electrosol coupons ! )

I have seen discounted papers for .99 at :
Giant Eagle

I'm not sure why these were .25 ??? It may vary per store ?
