  • Morning Coffee: No more Starter Scenarios?

    I’m getting the impression that the Drugstore Game Starter Scenarios aren’t all that popular, so unless there’s a big clamor to keep them, I plan to take a break from them and see how things go. If you really want them, let me know and I’ll continue doing them.

    Daily deal site Eversave is offering a very pretty initial necklace featuring Swarovski Elements crystals for just $2 + $6.97 S&H. This would make a great holiday gift, and it’s a $49.78 value.

    $1.00 off any LISTERINE WHITENING RinseCoupons.com has some great new coupons, including $1/1 Listerine Whitening Rinse, $0.50/1 Emerald Breakfast-On-The-Go, and $0.50/2 Pop Secret products. At zip code 77477, there’s a coupon for $1/2 Anna’s Thins – use it at Walgreens to get boxes for $0.49 each this week.

    There are also some good new coupons at Red Plum this morning, including $2/2 Right Guard Total Defense 5 Deodorant, Body Wash or Bar Soap products, $1/1 Wisk laundry detergent, $1/2 Butterball Turkey Bacon or Sausage, various Garnier and makeup products, and more.

    Amazon’s free Android app of the day is Dummy Defense ($0.99 value), a physics game that gets 4.6 stars in 15 reviews.

    1. Would you consider keeping them once a month or even bi-monthly?

    2. I liked to read the starter scenario’s you do are great but I know you are getting tired doing them. Maybe if you did the really good deals that would be awesome. Thanks for a great blog.

      • Chief Family Officer says:

        Thanks, Kathy! I’m definitely considering doing them at least when the deals are good 🙂

    3. I love them and use cvs and walgreens most weeks. I know there are more deals but I like how you have it laid out and I don’t have to search for the deals or have to think about how to “play the game”. I would love it if you would continue doing them each week. Thanks!

    4. I love the CVS scenario and do it every week that there is a great deal.
