Mamas Spotlight: Look What I did today

February 2011


So I only went to two stores this week and I didn't buy really any food, but that's ok. When you have been couponing for a while you end up with quite a stockpile that you can count on when you either don't have the time to shop or you just don't feel like it. You never know when it will come in handy to have your pantry really stocked up.

When I was pregnant with my little ones I was really sick all the time and It was such a blessing to have a full pantry and to not have to worry about shopping very often. So when you see something that you feel is a good deal for you try to stock up if you can!

So I went to Rite Aid to take advantage of the great Finesse deal that I was really excited about. I thought for sure they would be sold out since it was Saturday, but amazingly they had plenty! Here was the deal:

Finesse Shampoo, Conditioner or Styler 2 for $6.00
You pay $6.00, but get $5.00 +Up Rewards to use on next purchase (wyb 2)!
Final Price: $.50 each!

This deal couldn't have come at a better time, I just ran out of conditioner and mousse and I was getting desperate and starting to use my little girls J&J Buddies easy comb conditioner! And it's only easy comb because she's 2 and she doesn't have a lot of hair. So I was desperate for a good deal and this was great!

I purchased:

9 hairsprays

9 cans of mousse

and 12 bottles of conditioner

This normally would have been $15.00 after the deal, but I had UP Rewards that I have been saving so I used them to get this for free.

I will now be able to condition and plaster my hair for next year!


What is a Beer Rebate?

February 2011


I have received several emails asking about beer rebates

so here is a little beer rebate 101:

Did you know that Beer Companies will pay for some of your groceries?

If you live in one of the following 14 states, be ready to save! In AL, AR, CT, HI, KY, ME, MD, MO, NC, NJ, NY, OK, UT and WV.

You can find the rebate forms at most stores, but I have to say I find them the most at Kroger stores. You can ask customer service or sometimes they are next to products. Usually they require you to buy a certain amount of products and then you mail in your receipt with the rebate form and in 8-10 weeks you get a check back.

The best part is, that in the states above you don't have to make a beer purchase to get the rebate. I thought this was so odd when I first started couponing. I remember sitting there with the form and it said I just had to buy two bags of pretzels and I would receive $4.00 back! I happened to be buying the pretzels any way and I had a coupon for them making them free plus overage after the rebate. So the beer company paid me to buy pretzels! I also find beer rebates for meat and seafood quite often, which is great because you don't find coupons for them so this can really help offset your costs. Beer rebates are a great asset to couponers so be on the lookout for them at your local store!


Here is an example of one I found today:

Receive $8.00 back WYB two Digiorno Pizza's. I found these right near the Pizza's at my local Smith's. And Smith's has them priced at $4.50 each, so after the rebate my final price will be a $1.00 for two!
