  • Morning Coffee: Ugh, I’ve got the flu!

    Just a short post this morning because – that’s right – I have the flu and I feel awful. But I didn’t want you to miss out on these deals:

    Last month, P&G issued a rebate where if you buy $50 worth of P&G products, you’ll get a $100 coupon book by mail. I mailed my form in less than three weeks ago, after I realized that I’d bought $50 worth of Bounty and Charmin at Pavilions during this incredible deal. (I love that the form specifies that the $50 is before coupons.) Amazingly, my coupon book arrived yesterday! It’s got quite a few high value coupons, though some are lower value and the same that we get in the monthly P&G insert. Still, I expect to get some good deals out of them. You have until April 15 to make your purchases, and until April 30 to submit your completed form.

    Search & WinTodd at SwidgetWatch asked me to try out his site, which monitors the Swag Bucks Swidget and lets you know if there’s a Swag Code available. I subscribed to the RSS feed, and it seems to update in a timely manner, before the codes expire. I’ve spotted at least two codes thanks to SwidgetWatch, so I recommend giving it a try. (Learn why Swag Bucks is my favorite way to earn free money. Disclosure: If you join Swag Bucks using my referral link, I’ll get bonus Swag Bucks, so thank you if you do!)

    There are new coupons at today. They’re for the usual things, like Pillsbury, Betty Crocker, Cheerios, etc. The really good news is that they’ve added another store, which means you can now add Cellfire coupons to your Fred Meyer card. Banner via Escalate Media Affiliate Network

    I wanted to make sure you spotted this Staples deal for a 4GB flash drive for just $2.74 + tax. Today’s your last chance for that low price. Tomorrow, it’ll be $4.99 + tax.

    Today is Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry’s, so head in between 12 and 8 p.m.
