    First, just a heads up that this week’s Ralphs deals will post tomorrow since I didn’t get the ad in yesterday’s mail because of the holiday on Monday. It should be in today’s mail, so I can do the match-ups.

    Second, if you happen to be in the market for some blank DVDs and CDs, check out Staples. I went because this week’s ad includes a Staples brand pack of 50 DVDs for $12.98. But as I was walking through the store, I noticed a pack of 50 HP DVDs for $9.98 – and they came with a bonus pack of 50 CDs. I actually compared the packaging for a couple of minutes before buying the HP bonus pack.

    Amazon has some good magazine deals again: 2 years of All Youfor $34, with a $10 promotional certificate back; one year of TIMEfor $20 with a $5 promotional certificate; and one year of SmartMoneyfor $10 with a $5 promotional certificate – plus other deals.Disclosure: I’m an Amazon affiliate, so any purchase you make after entering Amazon through a link on Chief Family Officer supports this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you!

    Also, if you’ve ever wanted an Ugly Doll, some of them are on sale for Valentine’s Dayat Amazon. Funny how they’re ugly, and yet cute at the same time.

    There’s another $10 off $30 purchase coupon for Borders Rewards members. I definitely recommend checking out their clearance since I got $118 worth of toys for less than $21 before tax. The coupon expires 1/25, but I recommend going sooner rather than later – pickings were already slim when I was there over the weekend.

    Common Sense with Money has info on a printable B1G1 coupon for Sunbelt Granola bars, which she says are sold at Walmart.

    Today’s Ebates Daily Double store is Old Navy, which is giving 10% cash back (instead of the usual 2%). They still have a clearance sale going on, so it’s worth a look, although sizes are limited. They also have flat rate shipping for $7.To learn more about Ebates, read my original review. If you sign up through my referral link, we’ll both get a bonus when you make your first purchase within 30 days!

    KC Penny Pinchin’ Mama reports that on 1/21, Walgreens will send an exclusive photo offer to everyone signed up to receive email offers. She says that you needed to have signed up by last night, but it can’t hurt to sign up now and try to get in on the deal.

    A Full Cup user WillUBMyKnight is reporting that Pampers Easy Ups were clearanced to $2.84 at her Walgreens and they’re part of a Register Rewards deal. So, if you need Easy Ups, you might want to check your store or even ask for a price check!
