With A Side Of Thriftiness

The Life of a HouseWife… with a side of Thriftiness!

My First Rebate

I sent my FIRST Rebate in about two months ago.  And, I received the $5.00 in the mail from PBR yesterday!  I’ve sent in more rebates to: Clorox, Arm & Hammer & Neosporin.  Getting money back on things I already buy  is AWESOME!

Earn a $10 Gas Card

I’ve always been told that “You NEED to eat Breakfast because your body needs nutrition to function, just as your car needs gasoline to run.”

Gasoline and Cereal…  That’s the Deal Combo that I’ve found for YOU 🙂

If you’re a cereal eater, I suggest to switch to Kellogg’s (if you don’t buy it already) for a month.  Why?  Until 4/30/12 (or until supplies last), Kellogg’s will send you a pre-paid $10 card towards gasoline!  How?  Save your UPCs!  You’ll need TEN UPCs of a select variety of Kellogg’s cereals, 10oz+.  Here’s an image of the Kellogg’s Gas Reward Form, click HERE to be directly linked!  See link for further details.

The Hubby’s First Solo-Couponing Trip

I’m so proud of my Hubby!  He didn’t stick to the “game plan” aka couponing shopping strategy, but that’s NOT his fault.  Rite Aid was completely sold out of Maxwell House Coffee.  So, instead, he bought MORE Kellogg’s Cereal and Oreo’s.  I think he’s hinting at me to make him Dirt Pudding, LOL!   He completed two Transactions.

The First was just Coffee Filters and Cold Meds… Transaction #2 is where it’s at!

Transaction #2

Rite Aid had select Kellogg’s Cereals B1G1!  So, here’s what he got…

  • Two Boxes of Raisin Bran Cereal = $4.79
  • Two Boxes of Corn Pops Cereal = $4.79
  • Two Boxes of Rice Krispies Cereal = $4.79
  • Two Packages of Oreos = $5.98 (*Qualifies towards Kraft/Nabisco SCR “Single Check Rebate” )

*Rite Aid has a Single Check Rebate Program each month!  You can pick up a flier with all of the current month’s possible rebates at your local store.  From 3/7-4/3, you can earn $2.00 via REBATE by purchasing $12 worth of ANY variety Oreo’s  (you must submit by 5/3, see above link for details)!

TOTAL:  $20.39 – $20 UP+ Rewards (from Winter Savings Program) = $0.39 OOP

AWESOME JOB BABE!  Thru sales prices and UP+ Rewards, he saved $37.97… a 99% Savings!!  I’m SO proud of him 🙂
