  • Morning Coffee: Good news regarding Rite Aid Gift of Savings

    Thanks to For the Mommas for the update that the Rite Aid Gift of Savings total is now being calculated after coupons. The last time I logged in, the amount toward my total listed was after coupons, but after reading Shannon’s post, I logged in and this time my coupons had disappeared, leaving my pre-coupon total. It will now be much easier (and much more likely) to hit that $100 total to get the $20 Gift of Savings certificate.

    Hurry, because this one won’t last: Get a printable coupon for $10 off any purchase of $10+ at Hallmark Gold Crown stores. (Via Freebies 4 Mom.) Update: Sorry, but apparently this coupon was fraudulent. Thanks to Gina for the heads up!

    Get another hot printable coupon for $1.50/1 Kellogg’s Frosted Miniwheats. You may not be able to print this if you previously printed it.

    Wild for Wags reports that white tissue paper (on sale for 3/$1 with in-ad coupon) and wrapping paper (B1G1 @ $1.99) is working for the Hallmark Register Rewards deal right now.

    Get a coupon by mail for $3.50/1 Excedrin PM. (Via My Good Cents.)

    My Mealbox made 40 Disney Princess bentos (for their catering business). They look incredible!

    1. I went and did the Coinstar bonus offer yesterday. The Amazon.com offer is only good through 12/22 (the others are 12/31) and the $10 bonus on Amazon is ONLY good on Toys and Games. I was kind of bummed with that, but I'll use it. The part of the Coinstar website for getting the Amazon bonus was down all last night as well. I think I'd avoid this one!

      Also, not every machine has every offer available so check first. I had to go to 2 machines.

      Both machines I used also took cash — you do not need change! 🙂

      @Camille – Thank you so much for the update. I haven't gone yet so I really appreciate the heads up!

      Unfortunately, that Hallmark coupon was fraudulent. Heather pulled it off her site this morning.

      @Gina – Thanks for the heads up, I'll update the post!
