  • Morning Coffee: Hit Walgreens today!

    Yippee! There’s a printable coupon for 15% off your purchase at Walgreens today only (20% off store brand items). I’m so glad I put my shopping off this week as I’ve tried not to overdo things! Wild for Wags and Common Sense with Money both have a lot of moneymaking scenarios with this coupon. 🙂

    Tia’s Saving Cents has this week’s SoCal and Nevada Albertsons match ups, which include a hot Kellogg’s cereal + milk deal.

    I’ve been buying fewer daily deals than a few months ago (they just don’t seem to be as good), so I never realized how complicated it is to buy a Groupon through Swagbucks if it’s not listed right on the SB Daily Deals page. Money Saving Mom has a step-by-step tutorial on how to make sure you get your Daily Deal Swagbucks.

    There are some new printable coupons for Fisher Price infant and toddler toys (man, that Laugh & Learn Puppy takes me back – my secretary gave one to me way back when I was pregnant with a boy who is now a kindergartner!).

    There’s a monthly deal for a $2 +UP reward on any Scunci Elastic or Headwrap purchase at Rite Aid.

    1. I agree about the groupons not being as good, plus I already bought a few of the ones that keep popping up like Fancy Fortune Cookies. I buy the groupons through discover card as you get 15% cash back which I like to use to get their various gift certificates. Then if you redeem them for gift certificates, you get a gift certificate worth maybe $5 more than your dollar amount that you have built up. How does the Swagbucks compare, do you think I am still getting a better deal using my discover card or is it a better deal to do the swag bucks?

    2. Chief Family Officer says:

      @Susan – That would involve some complicated math where you have to assign a value to each Swagbuck – I generally go with 1 cent based on the cost of the $5 Amazon certificate – and then comparing that to the value of the certificates. Living Social deals are giving 450 SB right now, so that's $5 right there which is a pretty good deal.

    3. Thanks for the info. I haven't really used swagbucks after I enrolled. I guess I have to read your posts on how to get the most out of them. It just seemed like another thing to do so I have to get motivated to start using swagbucks plus I didn't like the way the searches looked as much compared to the google searches I usually do.
