I love testing/trying new products & Smiley360 is the PERFECT company to do this.  They recently sent Lil Critters Gummy Vitamins.  My kids have never tried this particular brand, although I have seen it in stores before.  They were excited to try them & actually APPROVED!  Both my boys said they taste just like fruit snacks, which is GREAT!  If you're interested in trying new products in exchange for your opinion, click the link above :)

L’il Critters™ Gummy Vites™ Complete Multivitamin Kids love the great taste, naturally sourced flavors and the fun gummy bear shape. Parents can trust that kids are getting essential vitamins and minerals to support and maintain healthy growth and development.* No High Fructose Corn Syrup No Synthetic (FD&C) Dyes Naturally sourced cherry, berry, and citrus flavors Gluten Free

If not, you may want to sign-up.  Hip2save posted about the deal here & I was able to score a FREE Pencil Bag.  Now, I'm not actually going to use the pencil bag for pencils, but actually for my makeup that I carry with me in my purse.  It's the perfect size & my old one was getting worn out.

Farm Fresh

Just a quick trip to Farm Fresh for some freebies!  They didn't really have a good sale this week.  However, if I have coupons to get some free items, I will go ;)  The only items I paid out of pocket for were the yogurts.  I paid .64 for all three, but got back .75 through Ibotta, so still a little bit of a moneymaker.  The pillsbury cresents & biscuits were free, as well at the quaker oatmeal.

Quaker Oatmeal on Sale for 1.00, use the 1.00 off 2 coupon (which will double to 2.00) = FREE!

Chobani Yogurt Coupon- buy 3 get 1.00 off, this will double to 2.00 off.  The yogurts were on sale .88 a piece.  After the coupon, you pay .64 for all three!

Then you go to the Ibotta app were you get .75 back for purchasing 3 Chobani Yogurts!  

Tuesday, November 3, 2015


This was such a HOT deal that I actually went to Walgreens on Sunday when the sale started.  Normally, I wait until Tuesday (15% military discount) to get my deals, but I knew they would be out.  When I went Sunday they had ONE Glade Wax Melt Warmer, which I got.  The deal is below:

Buy 1 Glade Wax Melt Warmer on Sale for $7.49
-$3.00 coupon found in Sundays paper = $4.49
BUT you get back $3.00 from Ibotta & $1.50 Register Reward.  That's like getting the Warmer for FREE!

Ibotta Rebate

Glade Wax Melt Warmer & $1.50 Register Reward.
Sweet Deal!

NFL & Thanks to Hip2save!

About a week ago Hip2save posted the deal below.  I was able to score the code & get $25 off a $25.01 or more purchase from NFL.com, plus Free Shipping!    I was super excited since the baby doesn't really have anything Dallas.

and for $1.98 I got Keegan a Dallas Beanie Hat &  a Dallas Burp Cloth.  I absolutely adore the hat! It's a tad bit big, but he'll fit it in no time.

he doesn't look too amused ;)  It was nap time & I wanted to take a quick picture.

I seriously love the Ibotta App.  Most of the time there are items on the app that I purchase often, and why not get paid for buying items we need/use?  Often times they will offer cash back on NON-brand specific items such as milk, pasta sauce, bread, cookies, etc.  Once I reach $10, I cash out via Paypal.  Two good offers that I found in Walmart were actually FREE after I got the cash back. 

*This offer is worth $2.50 for Borden Cheese.  As you can see below, our Walmart has it priced at $2.32! So this is not only FREE after the cash back, but a little bit of a moneymaker (.18). 

*There was a HIGH value offer on this Zico Chocolate Drink.  Ibotta was offering $4.00 on this! Well, as you can see it's priced at $3.98, but to sweeten this deal I had a $1.00 off coupon.  I paid $2.98, but will get the FULL $4.00 back!  Ibotta will also offer bonuses.  For example, if you claim so many rebates they will give you a bonus of $1 or $2.  They did a bonus for Halloween with $5.00 cash back if you purchased a certain number of products & at a certain price.  This isn't a 'get rich' app by any means, but you might as well earn a little back on the products you typically buy.

*If you haven't joined Ibotta & would like to try it out, click here.  It's very simple to join & the app will walk you through the steps to get your rebates.

Smiley 360.

I'm a member of Smiley 360.  Join Smiley360This is similar to Bzzagent & House Party.  They offer different 'missions' for you to try depending on your profile.  I was offered this Tazo Chai Tea Mission.  The picture below is what my package contained: some information, 3 samples, & 3 FREE Tazo Coupons to try their products.  In return, they would like me to tell them how I felt about the product & take a quick survey.  This is a GREAT way to try new things.


This deal was mentioned on Hip2save & it worked at my local Walgreens.

Buy 1 Caress Body on sale for 2.99, the second one will ring up half off so 1.49.
I went on Tuesday to get my military discount at 15% so I paid $2.55 for the first bottle & $1.27 for the second.  I also had two .75 off coupons making my total drop down to $2.32 for BOTH.  Then I got back a $3 Register Reward which is like using 'cash' at Walgreens. So this deal was actually a moneymaker for me.

Monday, October 26, 2015


I did three separate transactions to maximize my savings. I did all three the exact same. 

1 Colgate Toothpaste- 2.99 on sale
I get military discount on tuesday which is 15%, so the price went down to $2.55 minus $2.00 coupon = .55 each! BUT this week there was a $2.50 Register Reward.  That makes this deal almost a $2.00 moneymaker! The Register Rewards are like cash that can be used pretty much on anything in Walgreens.

Total Paid for All 3 - $1.65
Got Back - $7.50 in Register Rewards

Farm Fresh Super Doubles!

Farm Fresh is having Super Doubles! That means coupons up to $2 will double!  

1 Pumpkin - FREE
2 Busy Bone Dog Treats - .50 each
2 Bags of Dog Food - 1.59 each
4 Yogurts - .25 each
2 Avent Pacifiers - FREE
2 L'oreal Shampoo/Conditioner - .59 Each
Total: $6.36!

*I got back $1.00 from Ibotta  for buying 3 yogurts. So, that would bring my total to $5.36!

Deal #2

1 Box Popcorn - FREE
2 L'oreal Shampoo/Conditioner - .59 each
1 Package of Huggies Diapers - 3.97
2 Bags of Combos - .09 each
1 Pack Beggin Strips - FREE
1 Gain Laundry Pacs - 1.49
Oxi Clean Laundry Spray - FREE
3 Packages of Hot Dogs - .97 for all
Total: $7.79

* Note the diapers ALONE cost $9.99 before sales & coupons.  So this was a great deal!

Tuesday, October 20, 2015


I've really started getting back into Walgreens.  I'm not a fan of their Register Rewards (I tend to forget to use them), but with their sales prices & my military discount, I can score some GREAT deals.

2 Arizona Ice Teas
1 Box of Kleenex
1 Package of Huggies Diapers
1 Package of Wipes
2 Hefty Slider Bags
1 Colgate Toothpaste
3 Dawn Dish Soaps
1 Orbit Gum
2 Dial Body Washes
2 Proganix Shampoo & Conditioner

Total Before Savings, Military Discount, & Coupons: $71.08
After Discounts & Coupons: $27.81
Bonus: Got Back $2.25 for Ibotta, 1560 in Balance Reward Points, & a $2.50 Register Reward

*Note: If you are NOT an Ibotta user, I urge you to join.  You can get cash back on things like bread, milk, yogurt, etc.  It's not a lot but it does add up.

*Just to give you a bit of insight the Shampoo ALONE goes for 9.99  as well as the Condition, so that's $20 right there, and I paid $27 for EVERYTHING.  Now, I would NEVER pay that much for Shampoo or Condition.  In fact, after the sale, coupons, and discount...each bottle was .85 CENTS!

back and ready to PARTY!

Wow! I'm baaacccckkkkk!  I haven't made a post since January! Geesh!  I finally had the baby & after a rough pregnancy, recovery, post-partum...I am finally feeling a bit better.  I'm getting back into couponing & doing all my online stuff as well.  Which leads me to this post:

I was selected to host a House Party!  This is my second one in just 2 months, so I'm pretty excited.  I'm hosting a Rosatello Wine Party!  My party pack items are below:

ehh, not the BEST picture but it'll work.

9 Plastic Wine Cups
Red Circles- Compact Mirrors
1 Bottle Opener
2- $15 Visa Gift Cards to purchase the wine.
Several Card Packets with Information on Rosatello.

*I urge you to try and apply to these house parties.  It's been awhile since I've gotten selected but they are SO much fun.  Not to mention, they give GREAT party packs!
