Yoplait Frozen Smoothie = YUM!

I purchased this at my Commissary with some $1 off coupons that were soon to expire thinking what the heck I will try it. All you do is add milk and blend and it is only 110 calories for one serving! I thought I would share because it was SOOOOO good! I shared it with the kids because they thought it was a milkshake and they loved it too. I was pleasantly surprised and there is a coupon on right now for $1 off one! I do not know how much they sell for regularly but at my Commissary they were just $1.75 for the bag with 2 servings - so only $.75 with the coupon! You can't beat that for a low calorie frozen smoothie!

Free C9 clearance at Target!

I found this top on clearance at my Target today. I eagerly went in search of a cheap deal on a C9 brand activewear top so that I could use my $5 off Target coupon that I printed. To my surprise I found this exact top in my size on clearance for $2.48! The cashier adjusted the coupon down to $2.48 so it was FREE for me! If the coupon is still available to print here then take a look at your target and see what you can find! If you don't see it first then look under the "apparel" tab. If you still don't see it then it may not be available any more.

Military shoppers - go here!

I found this on a tearpad at the Commissary yesterday and I thought I would share. Go to the website and sign up as I did. I really have no idea what will come in the coupons but it sounds like they will be "military coupons" to be used on base only. When you stack these military coupons with manufacturer coupons you should get some really good deals! I'll let you know when I get mine!
*This states that it is only available until August 31, 2010 so don't wait too long!

Free Pampers wipes!!!

If you got the P&G insert in your newspaper on Sunday and happened to notice the $2 off Pampers wipes coupon then you are probably wondering where to use it to get the wipes tub free, right? I went to Meijer today and they are $1.99 regular price so I stocked up and got mine for free! The best part is that there is NO beeping at Meijer because the coupon adjusts itself down to $ no frustrations with the cashier! I have not confirmed it at my Walmart but I have also heard that the tubs are on rollback for $1.97 so free there too but sometimes not cashier friendly.

Coach Outlet sale continues!

Yay! This promotion has been on for a long time and hopefully it continues longer. Usually they will hand you the coupon when you go into the store but just in case print this coupon out and take it with you. Happy Mother's Day!!!

Old Navy Sale!

Wholey Moley! It’s the 30% Off Sale at Old Navy.From 4/30 through 5/2, the WHOLE store will be on sale: take 30% off your entire purchase.That’s a whole lotta happy!
Legal stuff:Offer valid from 4/30-5/2/2010 at Old Navy stores only. Not valid online. Discount applies to merchandise only, not value of GiftCards purchased, packaging or applicable taxes. No adjustments on previous purchases. Not valid for cash or cash equivalent. Cannot be combined with other offers or discounts including Gap Inc. employee discount.

Walgreens free first aid case

Walgreens featured a "build your own first aid kit" in the sale ad on 4/25. You must buy 2 participating items and you get a free first aid case. The first aid case does not contain any first aid items (that is why you build your own) but it does contain a booklet with $15 worth of coupons inside! Here are what they are: $1/1 Neosporin, $1/1 Band-Aid brand adhesive bandages, $4/2 Cortaid products, $2/1 BenGay product, $3/2 Johnson & Johnson Red Cross brand products, $2/1 Neosporin lip health, $2/1 Benadryl cream, gel or spray. They are manufacturer coupons but they do state "available at Walgreens" in the corner so some other stores may not take them, but they don't expire until 12/31.

Free Marcal tissues!

Anyone clip the coupon from the 4/25 Sunday paper for the FREE Marcal paper product (value up to $1)? I was very excited about this (because it is free, duh!) but when I went to the company's website I found the closest retailer was in Cincinatti! Well the good ol' Commissary carried their tissues for .75 so I got some free tissues! They have a lot in stock probably because they are anticipating the coupon release. They carry the toilet paper too so if you also cut the $2/1 coupon you could probably get some decent toilet paper for cheap!

Free Lea & Perrins plus overage at the Commissary

Lea & Perrins - The Original Worchestershire Sauce 10 oz - $1.79
