Free and Cheap Printer Paper at Staples

Hey, Y'all

Remember, when I said that Staples will have free and/or cheap paper every few weeks.  Well, it is here! 

I found coupons on Staples.com/coupons for a FREE​ ream of paper and a $20 case of 10 reams of paper.  Both are after mail in rebates.  I got my free ream about a month ago and my $20 case then, too.  I will go again and get another free ream and a $20 case of paper.  The sale ends on Saturday, October 11th.  You must have the coupons to get the paper deals.

I just ordered my Canon laser printer and it will be delivered to my local Staples in two days.  I barely made it.  It is 11:52 PM and I just placed my order online.  WHEW! Since I am picking it up at a Staples store, I will get a $5 coupon for a future purchase.  I will use that $5 coupon for my case of paper.  So, I will be getting the case of paper for $15! HOLLA!!!

Happy Paper Deals!

Coupon Printing...

Okay Everyone!
If you are paying more than 2¢ per page to print your coupons, you are paying way to much.  The average inkjet cartridge will cost upwards of $30 per color and yield less than 500 pages.  That means you could be paying  6¢ per sheet for black copies (2¢ per coupon) or 18¢ per sheet for colored copies (6¢ per coupon) or even more.
The cost per copy or coupon should be negligible and not even need to be factored into couponing at all.  So, about three years ago, I bought a used Samsung laser printer on Ebay.  I get about 2000 copies per cartridge and my "remanufactured" cartridges cost me $30 each (I bought several to get a discount).  My current cost per black copy is 1.5¢  per copy or about 1/2 cent per coupon.
Canon IMAGEclass LBP6200d Mono Laser PrinterThis deal crossed my email desk this morning and I had to share it.  It is so good that I am going to buy another laser printer.  My current used printer does just fine but one day it will die and I want to be prepared.  This is a one day deal that ends at midnight tonight.  If you buy it online and pick up at your nearest Staples, you will get a $5 coupon off your next purchase. (See the $5 coupon idea below.)  It has 4.5 out of 5 star reviews and it prints duplex (double sided) and my current one does not.  The cost per copy is about 1.8¢ per sheet or 6/10 of a cent per coupon (w/the $39 cartridge from WalMart).​​

​​​$5 Coupon Idea:  About every 6 to 8 weeks Staples offers a deal on their paper for $20 per case (w/mail in rebate).  Save that coupon and get your 10 reams of paper for $15 or $1.50 per ream.  That's how you take the cost of printing out of couponing!

Happy Coupon Printing!​

Coupon Insert Preview 10.12.14

Hey, Y'all

Here are the coupon previews for next week.
Start getting your shopping list together and when the new ads are published for your favorite supermarket or pharmacy, you will be prepared to make some great deals.

Visit your supermarket website online the day before the sales begin.  Usually, you will get a day head start on advertised sales when you access them online.

Do you have a fireplace?  Here's a link for one free PineMountain Fire Starter.  Let me know if it works.  I copied the link I received in my email and I am not certain it will work for you.  If not, please tell me.

Are you up for a challenge?

Here are some great CVS deals to test your couponing skills. 
Just follow the match ups for coupons and you could land some great bargains at CVS. I am only including CVS deals because you can quickly be overwhelmed by trying to over shop at several stores.   I very rarely shop at more than one pharmacy or supermarket in one day.  Concentrate on one supermarket and one pharmacy per week and shop them for all they're worth!  You'll get better deals and make fewer mistakes.

If You get stumped, give me a holla!  Send me an email and I will answer your questions or send you my phone number.

Happy Couponing!
