Free Chocolate with SavingStar

This is not the first time that I’ve written about SavingStar, an online program that lets you save your store card information, from multiple stores, in one place and then save money on items you might already be buying on your grocery list. SavingStar also offers coupons. This week’s coupon is for free chocolate. Free chocolate! And it’s not even Halloween yet, though my local Walgreens has already brought out the Halloween candy and has it right across from the summer clearance items! Anyway, back to your free chocolate. If you’ve already signed up for SavingStar, then you probably...

Huge Savings on Sam’s Club Membership

Which warehouse club you decide to join probably depends greatly on where you live and which one is convenient for you. When I lived in Pennsylvania, BJ’s Clubs were the closest to my home. Now that I’m living in New Jersey, Costco makes the most sense. And when I lived in Michigan, Sam’s Club was where we had our membership. If Sam’s Club is convenient for you, then you’ll want to check out this affiliate deal from LivingSocial I just found out about that can save you 68 percent on a Sam’s Club membership. Starting today, Monday, August 17...

Free Reusable Bag at CVS Plus 30% Savings

If you’ve been reading this blog for awhile, then you know that I’m a devout deals shopper. One of the places where I’ve really been able to take advantage of coupons, cash back and deals is my local CVS (the closest pharmacy store to my home). Just this week I combined manufacturers coupons, CVS coupons, Extra Bucks Rewards and a CVS BOGO deal to spend only $6 for four bottles of vitamins! It was the best when CVS was letting you bring in a reusable bag and you’d earn cash back every time you used it–eventually getting that cash...

5 Tips for Simplify Your Life Week

August 2 starts Simplify Your Life week, seven days during which you are encouraged to find ways to simplify your life. It’s a great time to simplify your routine, cut down on clutter and clear your house of unnecessary messes. It’s perfect timing if you’ve got kids going back to school–or even if you don’t. I don’t know about you but I always think about September as being a fresh start for the new year, even though I know the actual new year begins in January. In time for Simplify Your Life week, I partnered with Scott Brand to...

Free Baby Registry Gift from Amazon

Are you expecting a new bundle of joy soon? Are you considering setting up a baby registry? If so, you may want to consider consolidating that registry by creating a free baby registry on Amazon. Even better if you’re an Amazon.com Prime customer, you could qualify for a free baby registry welcome gift box, full of samples and other goodies. This box normally costs $35!

Donate a Suit, Get 50% Off a New One

I love helping to promote retailers that embrace cause-related marketing initiatives. This includes the very small–such as Target’s promise to give you $.05 off when you bring your own bag–to the very generous. Most often I’ve covered Goodwill’s program with the Bon-Ton, where you get coupons for discounts when you donate to Goodwill. Now there is a donate a suit program going on a Men’s Wearhouse that’s worth mentioning. This the 8th year that Men’s Wearhouse has done its National Suit Drive #giveasuit. The hope is to collect 250,000 gently used suits by July 31, 2015. The clothing collected...
