5 Coupon Inserts in the Newspaper September 13
Posted on Saturday, September 12th, 2009 at 9:23 am
This is a huge coupon weekend. Be sure to get extra newspapers. There are two Smart Source inserts, two Red Plum inserts, and a General Mills insert. There are over 180 coupons in this Sunday’s paper. Find a preview list here.
How do you get extra inserts? I’ve talked about this in my free ebook. Basically, don’t be shy. Ask. Ask your friends, neighbors, family. Ask you kids to keep an eye out for sources. Ask your spouse to get the coupon inserts that are discarded in the breakroom at work, waiting rooms, etc. I find that recycling centers are my best bet – not only do I come home with coupons, but with coke codes and qualifiers for some deals. This Sunday, it may be worth it to buy extra papers for the coupons. The event for couponers is HUGE.
Keep an eye for special deals coming from Walgreens this week, and from CVS as well. You may not think you use some of the products, but if you clip the coupons, have them on hand, and then can take advantage of deals that are money makers, you will have saved money on what you do need, received merchandise that you can donate, and perhaps even profited. As I have said in my e-book, coupons are CASH.
For example: Walgreens has a deal for Fructis Hair care, 3/$10. You get a $10 register reward when you buy $20. So you buy 6 bottles of Fructis. You use six of the $2 redplum coupons that appeared in the 8/16 newspaper, and which expire 9/15. Your final price is $8 out of pocket, and you are getting a $10 register reward, so you have 6 FREE bottles and a $2 profit.
So – I hope you got extras inserts in August, and saved the coupons for a deal like this one!
