Now that there's a target store close by...
*scrambles for the Target thread*
http://forums.slickdeals.net/showthread.php?sduid=0&t=599584

What I DON'T like about Target is that it's like Walmart. Corporate companies.

There's always Trader Joe's though. I have never been to Trader Joe's but I heard they're even better since it's around good prices with organic food. They seem like a nice place ^^ But American tofu may taste funny. hehe. Americanized version of Asian cuisine is mostly globs of fat...

Also, what I didn't know was that you can get expired coupons scanned at Target. Isn't that abusing coupons though?

Also this place scans coupon barcodes and tells you what the coupon can also be used for other than what it's face is.

Maybe it's old news but I'm a 16 year old with no life.

Oh by the way at Rite-Aid, Ferrero Roche (can't spell) chocolates are 1.99, I don't know about you but I think it's good enough, there might be a bigger sale at Walgreens when Christmas season hits though.

And a lady I met at Rite-Aid was getting those Kleenex for 99 cents, it's the small almost square box one, the lotion or regular kind, not the anti-viral one. It's apparently cheap because she had to get a rain check. I will ask mom about this. As much as I love trees, I cannot sew a hanky.

Halloween Candy was 75% off, I'm done with candy for now. I didn't look at the rebate booklet. For all I know I don't like mail-in rebates. Too much trouble.

Circulars + Taxes

September 28th, 2007 at 10:21 pm

So I have to retype this. Again…because I lost it. To a backspace button. And I love this blog and this is why I’m retyping it at 12:44 A.M., otherwise I would type in gibberish out of frustration.

So yes, the Verizon ad, has anyone else gotten it? The government is trying to tax our internet. *cry*

I went to Walgreens with mom last weekend, and checked out the deals for Rite-Aid this week. I’ll just type the deals that I thought were good/decent:

Walgreens:

* 3/$6 Tropicana OJ (I wanted it to be $5 as it usually was.)

*Rimmel Renew & Lift Foundation – Free after $8.99 rebate

*Pantene ProV Hair Products – Free after $5.99 rebate

*Aquafresh Gel-Flex or Toothbrush – Free after $3.99 rebate

*Clear Care Pack Contact Sol. 4oz – Free after $6.99 rebate

*Zicam Cold & Flu - $4 rebate (Maismom only had to pay a nickel. LOL.) compared to Rite Aid’s $6.99.

*Scott Bath Tissue 4 roll - $3.19x2 – [$1 off for 2 + $1 off mnf. Cpn.] = $4.19/8rolls or $0.52/roll (Read on to Rite-Aid sort of hilarious with their ad.)

-Candy: Mars, Hershey’s, Fun Packs, Theathre Box
A lot of $0.99 deals but you have to buy 3
Cpns for a lot of candy, I don’t remember the unit price.
-Save $1 for 2 packs mostly.
-Buy $10 get $5 rebate on candy

----------------------------------

Rite-Aid:

*Pepsi & Pepsi Products 12pck. – 4/$12 with ad cpn.

*Scott Bath Tissue 20 roll - $11.99 or $0.5995/roll. Mom usually goes by $0.50 a roll as cheap. The funny thing was that the ad advertised “Less than 60 cents a roll” and it’s like $0.0005 from 60 cents. Ridiculous advertising.

*Candy: Hershey’s or Mars - 2/$4 after $1 off rebate.
-8 or 10 pack candies (Hershey’s, Baby Ruth, M&Ms) - $0.99
-Theatre-Style Boxed Candy (Mike & Ikes, Dots, Junior Mints, Milk Duds) - $0.88 (cheaper than Walgreens)

*Rite-Aid products, 50% regular retail. My new Rite Aid just opened so we have a coupon $2 for spending $10 on Rite-Aid products. I was planning on getting cotton swabs, $1.99 original I think, so half that is $1 for 300 pack. Not bad.

*Kotex 2/$4 after $1 off rebate plus $1.25 mnf. Cpn. = $1.75

*Halls Cough Drops - 2/$3 (We pay ridiculous amounts in the winter.)

*BC Brownie Mix - $0.99 (Maybe I have a coupon.)

*Poland Spring Water 24 pck. - $3.99 (Not sure if it’s a deal, I’ll check in with my mom tomorrow.)

*Palmolive Dishwashing Liquid - $0.99 - $0.40 mnf. Cpn. = $0.59. (I usually buy in huge gallons at BJs though.)

----------------------------------

Whew. So my mom found the Staples receipts. This is just for my reference. Color pencils and markers are Crayola. I don’t trust Roseart. I hate Roseart. =]
Bought during tax-free weekend: 8/12/07
*Staples 0.5MM mech 2/$3
*Avery Binder 1in – 4/$6
*Glue - $0.05
*Cap-Erasers - $0.99
*Westcott Shatterproof Ruler - $0.99 (Cheaper a few weeks ago, $0.69 or $0.79)
*12ct Color Pencils - $0.99
*10ct markers - $0.68
*Sharpie 5 pck black - $0.99
*Pens pck - $0.05
*See-thru Ruler- $1.49 (Sewing)
*Memo Cube - $0.50
*Soft-Cover Binders - $0.33 (25 cents last year.)
*2pt folders - $0.05 (Teachers can get it for a penny)
*Filler Paper - $0.69 (A Bummer this year.)
*6pk Staples notebooks - $0.54
*Sharpie Accent Highlighters - $0.99
*Staples Pencil Sharpener - $0.05

Yay I’m done. Mom is asking me to call T-Mobile to ask about our rebates. Mom had issues with the Post Office not doing their job either. And the deal is, they’re making her pay for the postage again, with no guarantee that’ll it’ll get delivered because the address isn’t verified. Lol. So yeah. Have a nice weekend. 1:19 A.M. Work tomorrow. 2 jobs as a High School Student. How fun.

Frustrated!

Got that coupon for the Jumbo book sox. Bought ink with Staples rewards(unknown value):

35.99
+ 3.99
---------
- 3.99
---------
39.98
+ 1.80
---------
37.79

I didn't have enough so I had to dig into my pocket for an extra 5 bucks. I thought I didn't have enough. God I hate buying expensive stuff.

Organized my coupons and receipts into my school binder type thing. Now I don't have clutter on my desk. Which I wouldn't even call a desk. It has no space. For anything.

So I got accepted into that mentoring job. Yay. So I'll end up with 500 bucks by the end of the schoolyear if I don't screw up.
Really nice outcome.

I have finished a book on law and planning to do some more homework and reading. I wasted 30 hours or more this weekend. Stupid. You can tell I'm absolutely frustrated. Not alot of my supermarkets like printed coupons. *Cry*

The T-Mobile rebate. That was a pain in the insertwordofchoice. They gave an invalid mailing address to the rebate. So the rebate was sent BACK TO US. That insertedwordofchoice. Badly. We're waiting over $200 worth of rebates. You can tell my mom's pissed. I heard other T-Mobile customers didn't even get their rebate after 8 weeks. They're pulling my leg.

Edited.:
Walgreens trip, will update later.

Staples

September 6th, 2007 at 02:36 pm

[My First Entry x3!!]

I have already done my school shopping, but I have some "coupons" for free stuff like a locker mirror and calculator. It's free because of the website:
http://rockyourlocker.com
It's like a raffle for a free prize everyday and you just go to the website, make an account and just pray that you will win something. It's a sweepstakes too. For kids.

So far I got:
free pens (4 pack, really good ones.)
free music download (1)
and today
free locker mirror
free calculator
two free pencil sharpeners

So anyways. First day of school, and I realized there was a Staples on my route home. Got in, and I was SO GLAD I did my early school shopping because the prices were STEEP. I was only interested in the 5 cent pencil sharpeners, so I took two, one for my brother and myself.

When I went to the cashier, by the stroke of luck, I got my pencil sharpeners and my prizes for FREE. Yes I know 11 cents isn't much but I like free stuff.

I asked the cashier if I was supposed to be paying for my pencil sharpeners and she didn't know either. The manager explained that the coupon was valued at $1.40 for the calc. The calc was $1.30. There was the ten cents that went into my pencil sharpeners. No taxes either!

So total:
Mirror + $3.99
Calc + $1.30
(2) Sharpeners + $0.10
----------------------
$5.39
Coupon for Mirror: -3.99
Coupon for Calc: -1.40
------------------------
$0.00

=DD Oh and, the cashier was also surprised herself. She made a comment: "Don't you just love Staples?" I smiled and was a happy camper. Today was my first day of school also, I'm glad it turned to be great other than my blistered feet.
