Mail Day.

I love good mail days!  I am a member of BzzAgent.  This is a company that lets you try products for FREE, as long as you give feedback.  The feedback can range from twitter posts, facebook posts, write a review, etc.  It's very simple to do & doesn't take much time at all.  The recent Bzz Campaign I got offered was this Purina Beyond Dog Treats.  Not only did they send these treats but coupons as well!  I got a FREE Purina Beyond Dog Food Coupon, 1 Free Snack Coupon & several coupons that were $1.50 & $4 off.  

Let me say this! My dogs LOVED these treats!  These products are more healthier & natural as opposed to other brands currently on the market.  They are a bit more expensive because of this.  My dogs have tried the dog food, the chicken jerky strips, and the biscuits. They approved on ALL :)

Another great freebie I LOVE getting......MAGAZINES!  These all came FREE from Hip2save.  Most come with a free 1-2 year subscription.  I check Hip2save several times a day, it's my go-to blog.  She posts so many amazing deals, and this is one of them.  Other magazines that I've seen recently that were offering a free subscription include Shape, RedBook, and Martha Stewart.  

*Muscle Fitness, Martha Stewart Living, US Weekly, & People.


I thought this would be a good post to talk about reading coupons.  Often people look at the picture on the coupons but don't read the fine print.  I'll give you an example below.  

*By looking at this coupon you would assume you'd be buying two BAGS of candy.  If you read the print it says on any of the following brands 2.0 or larger.  Normally what I do is look for the CHEAPEST items to see if I can get them for free or a good deal.  If you notice below I was able to score FREE snickers at Farm Fresh using this coupon.

*Snickers are on sale for $1.00, paired with the $1 coupon that doubles to $2 = FREE!

*Coupons states larger than 2ozs, you can see this is 3.4oz :)

I swear I don't work for them but I do LOVE me some IBOTTA!  I like to try new products but not pay that 'new product' price!  Things are crazy expensive & with three boys, I like to keep my budget LOW.  I went to Walmart and found this high value rebate for TRESemme Youth Boost Hair Products ($4.75).  

and look how much it is at Walmart......$4.98!  After the rebate you are paying just .23!  Now some of you may be lucky to find $1 peelie coupons attached to the bottles, making this a moneymaker.  Unfortunately, there WERE peelies on these bottles, but someone took them all off :(  Even still, .23 for an almost $5 product is AWESOME!

Ibotta & Coupons.

I went to Farm Fresh this morning to grab the weekend freebies & a few Ibotta offers I saw that paired with coupons made for some cheap food!

Farm Fresh Weekend Freebies!  Depending on your Farm Fresh location, the $10 additional purchase may be BEFORE coupons, which luckily ours does :)  

Total Before Coupons - $10.54

After Coupons - $5.17

Cash Back from Ibotta - $1.50

Total After Coupons & Ibotta - $3.69!

*Hint: You don't always NEED coupons to catch a good deal.  These Betty Crocker Potatoes are on sale for .59, PLUS there is a .50 Ibotta Rebate on them which makes them just .09!  That's a GREAT deal!  One tip I will suggest is to scan the items using the app in-store to make sure the item matches.  I purchased an item once that was exactly as stated but when I got home & scanned the barcode it said 'item does not match'.  Now when I shop I leave the app open & scan the barcode to make sure.
