$6 Savings added to your account!

Hey, Y'all!

SavingStar's profile photoI hope you can see what I got in my email this morning from Saving Star(Check the message below.)  I selected two deals from the many choices of products that I intended to buy.  The deals were: buy one Noxzema product and get $1 and/or buy $20 worth of Noxzema and/or Ponds products and get $5 added to my Saving Star account. 

I cashed in on both deals and now have $6 just for shopping for products I was going to buy anyway.  But, I made the deal even sweeter because I used a 25% off CVS ExtraCare coupon.  Ponds and Noxzema have been a staple for the women in my family for three generations.  My grandma had not one wrinkle when she died at 98 and my mother has not one wrinkle and she is 90.  Y'all know me...I'm almost 70, see any wrinkles? :o)

Here's some money saving beauty advice from someone who only wears red lipđź’‹stick.  If you are over 40 and don't have wrinkles or your momma and grand momma don't have wrinkles, save your money.  Don't waste it on anti-wrinkle potions.  Just get a jar of a gentle soap or face cleanser and a moisturizer.  Hey, I just saved you a bundle without using coupons. :o)

​This Saving Star deal and others can be found with this link:  The sign up effort depends entirely upon how many customer loyalty cards you are packing.  I have over 40!  So, it took me a minute or two :o)  But, by spending the time, Saving Star helped me get my 28" View Sonic computer​ monitor for FREE

While you are still in sign up mode, sign up for  Be sure you are connected to the USA site and not the Canadian site when you sign up.  Look in the upper right-hand corner for the USA flag symbol.

Finally, sign up for high dollar ExtraCare Bucks on  You will receive surveys from CVS a few times a year to complete for $5, $10, and even $15 a pop.  I have completed at least 5 or more this year and could have done more.  However, the links to the surveys appear randomly and if you are not sitting at your computer to jump on them when they appear, you will miss out.  The site is very popular and only accepts a fixed number of participants for a survey.  I have missed checking my email several times only to find out I missed a survey.  Surveys are based on your spending habits and if you don't meet the profile for a survey, you will not be compensated. 

That's it! ​

​Happy Couponing!

Hey, Y'all!

Here are the coupon previews for next week.
​Check the expiration dates of the coupons in the coupon inserts closely.  Some expire in as few as 8 days (7/20).  ​

Staples has copy paper on sale for 1¢/ream this week (after rebate).  The sale ends Saturday.  Check the link each week because the 1¢ sale runs quite often.  You can buy up to 4 reams per day per person.  You can sign up for a free Staples account. You will have access to sales before the general public.  Also, sign up for the Staples Rewards account on the same page.

Egg prices are on the rise due to the shortage that came about when millions of laying hens had to be slaughtered due to the bird flu epidemic in the mid-west.  So, the buy price for a dozen eggs is usually $1.05 or less per dozen.  Now, the buy price is around $1.50 to $1.70 per dozen at least until the hens hatching now start laying eggs in 6 months.  That means we should see lower egg prices right around the Christmas holidays.  Merry Christmas!

Back to School sales will start popping up very soon.  If you see a sale and don't have a coupon, get a rain check.  Hold on to that rain check until you have a coupon to stack with it.  In some cases, that stacked coupon and rain check could make for some sweet deals resulting in free items.

Finally, I had hoped to do an online coupon forum this week but have been bogged down in paper work.  I will try for next week but I can't promise because we may have 8 of our grandkids again for a couple of weeks.  Whew!  I need a nap.

Happy Couponing!
