  • I went through the Smart Source coupons twice and did not see a Mott’s applesauce one there – I tried leaving the zip code blank and imputing my own. What zip code did you use to find this coupon?

  • Kelly

    THANK YOU for that Mead binder coupon!!! My college-bound son has been wanting some of those flex binders that the coupon is good for. I’ll be using mine at K-mart where they are on sale for $7.99 this week. Double that $2/1 coupon and I can get them for $3.99!! (Plus help bring total up to $50 to use the $5/$50 coupon!!) Those binders sell for $9.99 & up at Office Depot. I’m soooo excited!! You just made my day, lol!!!

    Is there anywhere else to get the Velveeta B1G1 coupon? My insert didn’t have it & I don’t see it on the SS website. Thank you for all that you do…I have been able to save my family so much money.

  • Emma K

    I was wondering if you could use the B1G1 coupons with the Walgreens back to school savings. I’m excited to use those especially for quick lunches this school year.

    • Emma,

      I have never had a problem combining a Walgreens store coupon with a manufacturer coupon at Walgreens.

  • For the Dr. Scholl’s deal, Walgreens does NOT sell the Custom Fit, so you cannot use this coupon: $10 Custom Fit Orthotic from the 8/9 SS.

    • Thanks Adriana. I removed the coupon from the deals.


  • Jenna

    Mercedes- I looke at the ad scanned in and did not see the Veveeta deal. Is this an on going thing? Thanks

    • Hi Jenna,

      Yes this is an unadvertised deal. The sale price should be tagged at stores but the RR deal may or may not be tagged. but it is working.

  • Thanks a ton for the links to the printables! I really appreciate the time you take to do that. This blog is FAB!

  • Emma K

    The RReward for Velveeta also works with Easy Mac.

    The October issue of All You (pg 155) has a coupon for $1/1 off any Soft Soap Body Wash. The body wash is $3.99 and you $3.99 in register rewards, making this a money maker. I just received the magazine today.

  • benz1968

    Today Aug 21 I bought 4 easy mac’s and no RR printed.:-( It’s not in the ad??? Where did you guys read about this RR Deal. Bummer I was gonna do the deal again for the Nabisco rebate.

  • Kristen

    I agree with benz1968. Bought the same thing (4 easy mac) and no RR. Would be interested in where people are seeing this.

    • The deal is unadvertised just like the one with the Velveeta cups is. It has worked for others though.


  • benz1968

    Well thank you for posting and sharing but it may be a regional promotion. I’m in Pensacola, Florida. Not a good night for me…I ended up losing that receipt (for Nabsico Rebate) on top of not getting the $1 RR. Waaaaa!!!

    • Hi benz,

      Could you call the store? they may be able to get you a copy of the receipt. I did this recently with a receipt I needed. I called told time of the transaction and what I bought and they printed a report that can be used for your rebate. I know others have used it successfully too. It will be the first time I do though.


  • benz1968

    Thanks for the tip! I’ll give it a try.
