  • Morning Coffee: My heartfelt apologies

    On Saturday, I posted about a Rite Aid deal that I did, using a Buy One, Get One free coupon on Playtex products. But last night, a reader let me know that the coupon wasn’t for any Playtex products, but a 36-count and 18-count box. The 36-count box isn’t part of the sale and not what I’d bought. I am so sorry for not reading the coupon carefully and for not realizing that it didn’t apply to this particular sale. I would never knowingly suggest that anyone use a coupon improperly, and apologize wholeheartedly for this error.

    Freebies 4 Mom reports that you can get 20 free 4×8 flat photo cards at Snapfish with code BABIES (exp 10/31). You’ll have to pay $5.99 shipping, which works out to 30 cents per card. As I recall from my holiday pricing a couple of years ago, that’s a pretty good deal – back then, 30 cents per card was the best deal I could find.

There are also new Dannon yogurt coupons – many of the 4-packs are $1.88 at Ralphs, so they’ll be 88 cents if your store doubles to $1. Links via Logical Media

    1. I think its really good for readers to know that the coupon pros make mistakes too… last week, I had the perfect purchase set up for Rite Aid (even found $2/1 peelies for the Sarna lotion I was working into the deal) and after the cashier rang everything up, it turned out my $5/25 coupon was expired. I had 3 or 4 more of them at home, but none in my coupon folder. So I had to leave and repeat the whole thing the next day (Rite aid is right down the road from me, so it was worth the $5).

      So anyway, thanks for sharing your successes AND your mistakes!
