  • Morning Coffee: It’s Mega Swag Bucks Friday


    Search & WinThanks to Swag Bucks, I’ve been able to buy my family lots of items for free from Amazon. It’s by far my favorite way to earn free money, so I love Fridays, when there’s an increased chance of winning big Swag Bucks. Plus, now you can win a daily Swag Buck by taking the Daily Poll, and another daily Swag Buck for using their toolbar. Disclosure: If you join Swag Bucks using my referral link, I’ll get bonus Swag Bucks, so thank you if you do!

    Get a peek at next week’s Staples ad. The back-to-school sales continue, and there are 25-cent items, as well as 1-cent glue. The penny item requires a $5 minimum purchase, but it doesn’t look like there’s a minimum on the 25-cent items.

    Get a peek at next week’s Walgreens ad – there are more back-to-school deals, and 99-cent Kleenex. There’s a printable coupon for 50 cents off 3 boxes, which makes each box 82 cents. That’s a bit higher than my target price, but the lowest I’ve seen in a while since the cold/allergy season sales ended.

    Get a peek at next week’s Office Depot ad – you can use this $10/$25 coupon, but their back-to-school sale is lackluster compared to Staples.

    My Good Cents explains how to get free Farmer John Sausage at Ralphs this week.

    The 20% off diapers at Amazon code is reportedly also in Parenting magazine, not just Parents. You can win the code that was in my issue of Parents, and if I can find the code in Parenting, I’ll pick a second winner too. There are only a few entrants right now, so the odds of winning are excellent. (Hat tip: Organic Deals & Coupons.)

    Get a preview of the upcoming Target ad.

    A Thrifty Mom has a Walmart school supplies price list. I’m guessing the prices are regional, but should give you a pretty good idea of how much things cost at Walmart.

    Common Sense with Money has some current Target deals.

    It’s a good day when you get to see Princess Leia arrested by stormtroopers and Darth Vader while reading Galactic Rebellion for Dummies on the subway. Hilarious!

      @anon – It's still there for me. Did you enter your zipcode? It's likely regional.
