More Information on Mililtary Commissaries

Thanks to workshop attendee and Time 2 Save fan, Kim, I've been able to round up some more information about using coupons at military commissaries.  Here are a few highlights:
  • Coupons are accepted under the same conditions that are stated on the coupon
  • Store coupons can not be accepted at commissaries...only manufacturer coupons
  • Expired coupons can be used only at overseas commissaries (up to 6 months).  Otherwise they must be in date.
  • Commissaries do not double or triple coupons.
  • Internet coupons are acceptable as long as they are manufacturer coupons.
  • When sending expired (or any) coupons to overseas commissaries, please cut them out of the insert before sending.
This is a great activity to involve your kids.  Not only is it an opportunity to have a conversation about the sacrifice our military makes for our freedom, but you will also receive a Thank You note several weeks after sending them. You can send coupons you aren't going to use or expired coupons to:

AWESOME Kelloggs + Milk Catalina

This catalina went live YESTERDAY - and it is a National Catalina, which means it should be good at most groceries across the country!  This is good for 12 oz or larger boxes of Kelloggs Cereal, and goes from 3/21 - 4/10.  Here's the "Scoop":

* Purchase 3 boxes ~ Get catalina for 1 Free gallon of milk (up to $4)
* Purchase 5 boxes ~ Get catalina for 2 Free gallons of milk (up to $4)
* Purchase 7 boxes ~ Get catalina for 3 Free gallons of milk (up to $4)

Right off the bat, I can tell you that Food Lion has a great deal with this.  Both 17 oz Frosted Flakes & 20 oz Raisin Bran are BOGO @ $3.89.  There is a $1.50 Raisin Bran Printable, and a $1/2 from the 3/7 RP.  Here's the best scenario:

Use (2) $1.50/2 Printables
Stack with $1/2 FLIP
(Pay $3.92 for 4 Boxes of Cereal + Milk!)

Suave Catalina at Bi-Lo

I mentioned in this week's Bi-Lo list that I couldn't find any info on the Suave catalina I remembered....  and you guys came through again (Kim, Rose, EverythingMom, FullofHope, and Rachel)!  Have I told you today that you're the best readers EVER???  Here's the scoop:

~Buy (3) Suave Items ~ Get 1 Suave Item Free (Up to $2)~

Suave Professionals Shampoo/Conditioner $1.69
-Use $1/2 from 3/14 SS = $1.19 ea
Suave Kids Shampoo/Conditioner $1.69
-Use 50¢/2 from 3/14 SS  = $1.19 ea
Suave Body Wash/Kids Body Wash $3.19
-Use 25¢/1 or 50¢/1 from 3/14 SS *Regional
-Use B2G1 Free from 3/14 SS *Regional
Deal Idea:
Buy (4) Suave Professionals/Kids Haircare = $5.10
Use (2) $1/2 = $3.10
One will ring FREE due to Catalina Deal = $1.41
Use 75¢/2  FLIP *If your Bi-Lo accepts Competitor Q's = 66¢
(Pay as low as 66¢ for 4 = 18¢ ea!)

NOTE: In the normal rules of Buy One, Get One Free deals, you are able to use a coupon on the "Free" item as well.  I am hoping/praying that this will work the same way with the Buy 3 Get 1 Free Instant Catalina. If not, you will only be able to use (1) $1/2 Coupon, and your total will be $2.41 for 4 Products - or just 60¢ ea!  Still not a bad deal!

Let me know how your trip goes, I'll be heading out tonight to try it myself!

Ask Walgreens??

I (Kasey) recently spent time with a Walgreens Manager who was very open to hearing our questions and concerns.  He emailed the coupon policy below that he received from corporate.  It does not address Register Rewards.
Here is your chance to voice your questions, concerns, and comments to  Make sure to include WALGREENS in the subject line.  We will send a compiled list of all of your emails to Walgreens.   Hopefully we'll get their attention and they'll see the necessity of having some sort of general guidelines regarding Register Rewards that are consistent.

Coupon Policy For Walgreens
Use the information below to ensure that your store is following the appropriate policy when accepting both Walgreens and manufacturer coupons.

Can a customer use both a Manufacturer's coupon and Walgreens coupon for the same item in a purchase?

One Walgreen and one manufacturer coupon can be used for the same item, unless either coupon prohibits such use.
Walgreens Roto Ad Coupons, Instant Value Coupons (IVC), and a manufacturer's coupon can be used towards the purchase of any one item. "One coupon per purchase" means one coupon must be tendered for each PIECE sold.

What happens if the Manufacturer coupon's value is more than the retail value?
Walgreens does not provide cash back if a coupon is presented for more than the purchase value of the item (e.g., the customer is using the coupon to purchase a clearance item).
If the retail of the item is less than the face value of the coupon:
the coupon value shall be the retail value if the state requires taxes to be paid on that item,
the coupon value shall be the retail value plus taxes if the state does not require taxes to be paid on the item.

Can a customer use a coupon after a sale has been made?
All valid coupons must be presented to the cashier at the time of sale only!

If there is no quantity limit on a Walgreens coupon can a manager impose his/her own limit?
Yes, managers have the right to limit the quantities of all advertised items.

Does Walgreens price match or accept coupons from other retailers?
Walgreens does not price match with other retailer.
Walgreens does not accept coupons from other retailers or coupons for products not carried in our stores.
Walgreens does not accept expired coupons.

She Speaks Conference

SHE SPEAKS is a conference for women who have been called into ministry through speaking, writing or as a director of  women's ministry.  Many of you have joined the Proverbs 31 daily devotions through our link.  Kasey and I love the realness and heart of the P31 ministry.  (If you'd like to sign up for the daily devotions, click HERE.) In this conference, women learn how to take their calling and communication to the next level.  There are several scholarships that are being given away (details are HERE.)  As Time 2 Save grows, Kasey and I have been given many opportunities to speak truth into the lives of women (& men) who come looking to save money, but leave with hope and inspiration that the God of the universe can use them to be His hands and feet in the lives of those around them.  We would love to be chosen for one of the scholarships to be able to seek wisdom and develop better communication skills as we move forward.  If you'd like to attend the conference or want more details, click HERE.

CVS: Easter Candy - 80¢ a Bag!

Woohoo!  When I posted up the CVS list this week, I kept eyeing up the Buy $10 in Easter Candy ~ Get $3 ECB deal.  I was wondering if it would go along with the sale on Hershey's Chocolate Easter Candy - but noone had any details at the time.  Well now we do - and it's a great deal!

Buy (6) Bags of Hershey’s Candy @ $1.97 each = $11.82
Use (2) $2/3 Hershey’s Coupons PRINT or from 3/14 RP
Pay $7.82  ~ Get $3 ECB Back
(Makes it 80¢ per bag!)

*NOTE: Although it says in the ad that the deal is "limit 1" - several folks have reported not reaching their limit yet after doing it once.  Check the bottom of your receipt to see if it says "Limit Reached" or not - and if not, go for it again!!!
