Home Depot Kids Workshops

Home Depot Kids Workshop will be held this weekend (April 2)  at all Home Depot stores from 9-noon. They will be making a planter/basket this week (great spring project!) These FREE workships are designed for children ages 5-12. Go here for more details, but no sign up is necessary.

"The workshops teach children do-it-yourself skills and tool safety, while at the same time helping to instill a sense of accomplishment. Additionally, this fun time allows for quality one-on-one time between adults and children."

In addition to the newly constructed project kit, each child receives a kid-sized orange apron, similar to The Home Depot associates' aprons, and an achievement pin.

TWO Personalized Coin Purses for 2.99 SHIPPED

With Easter and Mothers Day just around the corner I would imagine we could all think of someone who could use a new coin purse (perhaps with a special gift inside)  Go here and design your own coin purses and have them shipped in 7-12 business days for only $2.99 (for every two).  Just use coupon code 2FOR299MCP at checkout for the free shipping and discounted rate.  I ordered four and my total was under $6 so I KNOW it works!!  I can't wait to see what they look like.

For complete information and photos of other available options go here to view the e-mail I received promoting the deal.

Kelloggs's Cereal REBATE up to $50 in gas cards!!!

If you don't mind a little extra legwork this is a fantastic deal on cereal.  I usually don't do rebates but a few times a year I find one worth my while . . . this is one of them!

Kellogg’s just released a form for a terriffic rebate offer! You can get a $10 prepaid MasterCard (for use on gas) when you submit ten UPCs from any of the following boxes of cereal (10 oz. or larger):

Kellogg’s All-Bran® Original cereal

Kellogg’s All-Bran® Bran Buds® cereal

Kellogg’s All-Bran® Complete® Wheat Flakes® cereal

Kellogg’s Smart Start® Strong Heart Antioxidant cereal

Kellogg’s Smart Start® Strong Heart Toasted Oat cereal

Kellogg’s® Cracklin’ Oat Bran cereal

Kellogg’s® Lowfat Granola with Raisins cereal

Kellogg’s® Lowfat Granola without Raisins cereal

Kellogg’s® Fruit Harvest Strawberry/Blueberry cereal

Kellogg’s Rice Krispies® cereal

You can do this rebate up to five times per household and no receipts are required, just UPC codes! So, if you have Kellogg’s cereal boxes already at your house (or a friendly neighbor's house) then you may already have the UPC codes you need.  Get the rebate form here

I'll post deal ideas here as I find them on the internet the next couple weeks, I'm sure there will be lots of ways to score cheap cereal with this rebate.  Just click on the deal if you want further details.

FREE ready Rice

FREE full size ready Rice pouch
go here and click on the Uncle Ben's Ready Rice picture (mine was on the right side) and fill out a short form for your free ready rice pouch!

TIDE sample of color catcher

Go here and become a fan on facebook to receive a free sample of Tide Color Catcher.  I have used this product before on some previously white clothes that had been turned pink by a stray red sock . . . the pink all came out.  I was EXTREMELY impressed!  Try it out for yourself with this free sample (simple form will take you about a minute to fill out)

FREE Bath and Body Works

Become a fan of Bath and Body Works on facebook and then head over here for a fan exclusive coupon for a free travel size lotion this weekend.  I LOVE these and have one in my purse almost all the time!  So simple, just take the coupon into the store and you will get your free lotion-no purchase necessary!  THIS WEEKEND ONLY!!

FREE sample of Frito Lay Chips at Walmart

Tomorrow, Saturday, March 26 Walmarts across the country are going to be offering free samples of Frito Lay Chips.  These sample times usually run from 10-1 but I can't find any information on the exact times for this weekend.  It's only a free sample bag so I wouldn't make a special trip, but if you are headed to Walmart anyway be sure and keep your eyes open for the samples.  Check in the food area as well as in the front of the store near the register.  While you are there check out these Walmart deals for this week to score some free stuff if you have the right coupons.  (Thanks moneysavingmom for the Walmart deals post)

FREE sample of stuffed Frosted Mini Wheats Cereal

Go here to sign up for a free sample of the new frosted mini wheats cereal.  It seems to me that this was a product that was unveiled when we were kids (It seems famaliar to me).  Either way though, they are trying it out on the shelves again and that means free samples for us!  :-)  Go here to get your free sample.

Again, they may ask you to become a member of Vocalpoint to get the free sample.  Take the time to fill out the form and become a member (although, use your junk e-mail-they send a notice a week or so) because they have TONS of free samples they offer at different times of the year.  Also, don't forget this sample also available there now.

Blockbuster Express FREE movie codes

Have you tried out the Blockbuster kiosk rental system yet?  The system is easy to use but you must have a credit card or debit card to charge the movie to (we have done this MANY times with no problems giving our card number-seems very secure).  If you return the movie by 9:00 pm the day AFTER the rental then you will be charged only $1 (or nothing if you have a code).  Every day after that your credit card is charged $1 a day.  Also, like redbox, you can go to the website here and reserve the movie BEFORE you drive all the way to the kiosk, but be warned . . . your credit card is charged when you reserve it online so only do this if you actually plan to go pick it up.

Try this free code TODAY ONLY (Monday 3/14)  and see if you can't score a free rental to try it out.  Each code is good once PER credit card or debit card NOT once per customer so with several credit cards you could get one for the kids tonight and one for you after they go to bed!

The code is  MONDAYFREE  return the movie by 9:00 pm tomorrow and it will be completely free!  (thanks myfrugaladventure)

For a Kiosk near you head over to their website here

In the Wood County Area you can find them at the Speedway in Marietta, Speedway on Murdoch Ave, Speedway on Pike St-Parkersburg, Speedway on 7th St. Parkersburg

FREE coupons!!

Sign up here for a free booklet of $35 worth of Procter and Gamble coupons  . . . often this booklet has high value coupons for dish soap and laundry detergent.  Well worth the minute it takes to fill out the form.  Get to the form here.  If you leave the box at the bottom of the form unchecked they are very good about not sending your e-mail a bunch of spam too.

Deals for the week of March 13-19, 2011

SOOO sorry, looks like Faithful Provisions might be in a different Kroger ad area than most of WV (Mid-Atlantic ads) so many of the coupons and matchups she did were NOT working in the Mid-Atlantic stores . . . I am so sorry and will find a better provider of deals for those of you that shop at Kroger (including myself) next week.

Walmart Coupon Policy

Walmart just started a new coupon policy-read the entire thing here.  Most of it is pretty standard coupon language but a few things are pretty unique to Walmart.

1. they accept Internet printable coupons (if it says manufactures coupon at the top)
2. they accept competitors coupons with a specific price listed for an item (Rite Aid OFTEN has these in their ad)
3. they accept competitors checkout coupons (you know those ones that print with your receipt at Kroger and Giant Eagle) with a bar code and if it says manufactures coupon at the top
4.  Coupons may exceed the price of the item. Change may be given or applied toward the cost of the basket purchase.  (this is a big one for me!!-with the right coupon you can actually MAKE money taking things from the store)

1.  they do NOT accept Internet printable free coupons (you can occasionally get these to print from company websites when they are unveiling a new product)  This is bad news since only walmart in this area is usually on the cutting edge and has these new products in stock before the coupon expires.

What a deal to re-start my deal website with--sorry about the long break!!  Follow the directions below to get $30 of photo products from Shutterfly absolutely free!  (looks like this will only work if you previously had a Photoworks account-even if you opened it years ago and rarely use it as I did) 

::Sign up for a Shutterfly account if you don’t have one already (you’ll get a credit for 50 free prints added to your account which is a sweet deal too).

::Transfer your photos by using the "transfer my photos" button here, then log back into Shutterfly.

::You’ll receive an email within 48 hours with a unique code which will give you a free $30 credit!

If you spend $30 or more in one shot on Shutterfly then use the code SHIP30 to get free shipping!  So I would use it all up at once, and get it completely free!!
