Cheap Amazon Toys

We're shopping for our kids' birthday and Christmas gifts. and found a great deal. Hope to use it just looking through the BIG pool of toys at .AmazonToys

Basically, you buy $25 worth of toys, you can get a free subscription to Cookie magazine worth of $15. But you can also write in with a form, saying you'd rather have a refund of that $15. So you spend only $10. Great deal?

Go here to start shopping: AmazonToys

And the details for the refund is here.
*UPDATE* I don't see the ad for the Cookie Magazine anymore. So, I think as of today when I looked (Nov 3) the deal should have expired.
*More UPDATES* I wrote to Amazon and they said the deal is still on and the end date is not fixed. So, go grab them!

Grocery/Drugstore Plan

I actually haven't planned much, but here are SOME deals I thought worth mentioning.

Stop and Shop
Progresso Soup, 1 for $1.67, $1.10 off here, you pay $0.67 for a can of Progresso. Not bad.
General Mills Cereal, 4 for $4 off. Not sure what's the usual price, but I MIGHT be able to get some good Cheerios.

Pampers Diapers or Easy Ups jumbo pack Pay 2/$20, ECB $5. That's $7.50 per pack!
And if you have coupons for pampers, this is a sweet deal. A pity our girl is allergic to pampers and also we have quite enough dipes stocked up.

Crest Whitening Pro-Health toothpaste, $3.49, ECB $3.49 Final Price: FREE

Buy $10 Hershey candy get $5 ECB. I'm looking at Ice-breakers Ice Cubes gum $1 each, cos I have a couple of $1 off 2 coupons And maybe some others...

Rite Aid
After two weeks of really amazing deals, now it's slowing down.

Soy Joy bars 10 for $5, you get $5 back, Final Price: FREE (I have $2 off 10 coupon. cool) Now, if your Rite Aid takes IP, here's a good coupon ($3 off 5, you can only have 1 coupon)

GUM Toothbrush, $1.99, rebate $1.99, Final Price: FREE

Nothing exciting.

Youdata: Small Income-earning opportunity

I've joined YouData and blogged about it before. My reviews until now are these:

1) It's very legitimate. I've been paid FOUR times since I joined on Oct 5th (not even a month). And within this 24 days, I earned $15. It's a small income-earning opportunity, but hey! it pays!

2) It's very easy to earn the money. Unlike some other survey/email-reading sites like sendearnings (which I still have and till now haven't got to $30 to be'll be a while), inbox dollars etc, this pays quite a bit, almost $0.20 per ad you watch. And you DO NOT have to spend a lot of time!! I only spent I would say a total of less than 10 mins on those $15 I earned. Can you believe it? It's just watching an ad, how long does it take?

3) They pay weekly, not till you reach a certain amount.

As I said, I'm quite full of praise for youdata. Only complaint I have is that they don't seem to have enough of the ads for me, at least. I wish they won't "close shop" soon.

So, I would encourage you, if you want to earn some money for snacks, for a little bit of extra cash, sign up on my side bar!!!! You'll need a paypal account, which is painless to create.

Earn YouData $$ at my site

If you do sign up at youdata and would like to start earning your money, can I ask you to come to my blog (on the side bar) to read the ads? You can always sign in at Youdata's site, but this can be a convenient stop for you. I don't have that much affliates on my blog (cos this blog is generally not a money-earning one), so it'll be nice to have a little bit of income. You still get your money (apparently you can choose how much to share with me and I'm happy if you get to keep all your money). I just get paid a little bit (by youdata) when you look at ads from my site. Thanks in advance!!

Happy earning!!

Omaha Steak at a really good price!

I'm so sad for my friends...this deal has changed...9:35am WED MORNING!!! Gosh, I'm glad I did it yesterday...but now you'll have to spend $100 to use the $25 gift card. (at first $50) My goodness!!! I'm not sure if they can actually change LIKE that...but I'm glad my stuff has been shipped out.

This deal is really worth doing!!

Step 1: Go to Geicoprivileges. Cut and paste "" on your browser. Sign up. (Make sure you see the "Omaha Steak" promotion icon)

Step 2: Wait for email. They come HOURS after you sign up.

Step 3: Copy the code of the e-certificate sent to you. (it's worth $25) (Now, if you receive the email to say you have the $25 e-cert but when you click on it, no code comes up, try logging into geicoprivileges and THEN go back to email and click on the code. Odd I know, but it happened to us)

Step 4: Go to Omaha Steak Coupon here. You may choose any you like. I took the "60% off The Ultimate Assortment and The Sizzling Sampler + FREE Omaha Steaks Burgers + FREE 6-Piece Cutlery Set + FREE Cutting Board " one.

Step 5: Choose what you'll like to buy (but above $12 I think). You DO NOT have to buy the Sampler!! I chose 12 4 oz burgers (for $14.99)

Step 6: In your cart, you'll find you have 6 more burgers, cutlery set and cutting board for FREE! (Now, if you'd rather have 12 free burgers instead of the above, let me know, I can send you the invite to have that!)

Step 7: Use the e-cert code (that'll take off $25)

Step 8: Pay balance by credit card or paypal. (I paid $3.98 for 18 burgers, cutlery set and cutting board)

My stuff comes on Sat. I can't wait. My hubby neither. He ADORES burgers.
If you have problems, check out the comments on this blog or this blog.

Drugstore Plan Oct 19

This is my plan for the coming Sun. Only CVS worthy of shopping this week. Super duper cheap dipes, how about that.
At first I thought of doing a couple deals, then again, I might not need those stuff, so, I'm streamlining to 1.

4 packs of Gerber food - $0.64 each, $1 off coupon

Total after tax: $25.74
Other coupons/ECB:

Every day a Holiday - World Egg Day

Today is World Egg Day!
Why do we celebrate eggs?
1) Eggs are one of the most versatile foods on the market. Think of all the possibilities - scrambled, poached, boiled, used in confections, fried...
2) Eggs have a high nutrient density (12% of Daily Value for protein + A, B6, B12, folate, iron, phosphorus, and zinc)
3) Egg protein quality is so high that scientists often use eggs as the standard by which the protein quality of other foods is measured.
4) There are no trans-fats in eggs. Eggs are "lean"!
5) Eggs have always been a bargain, nutritionally and economically.
6) Any time of the day is right for eggs (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Supper...)
7) Egg yolk is an excellent source of choline, a nutrient now considered essential for human health.
8) Lutein and zeaxanthin in eggs means lower risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of blindness affecting people over the age of 65.
9) Eggs can be elegant: A puffy omelet, souffles, crepes, cheesecakes...
10) Research indicates that increased protein and reduced carbohydrate intake stabilize blood sugar between meals, which can lead to reduced between-meal snacking. 11) Eggs are good for growing children to build muscle. And in my own experience, children LOVES eggs.
International Egg Commission (I'm not kidding)
So, this morning, my family will be having eggs to celebrate! You go cook up an egg today too!

I'm going to put up my plan for this coming Sun to Sat deal.

All these we'll pay less than $2 (for tax) if IP not accepted. If they do, we almost don't need to pay!!

This Sun, do go online to RiteAid and see what you can get for free!!


We have 2 $5 RR and $3 RR to use before next Fri.

This week, we are having that Robitussin and Dimetapp Money-Making deal!! I don't really want to buy the meds that we're not going to use, but we have to use up our $5RR and it's money-making!

Free Money from CVS

CVS gives out 2% cash back on all your purchases after every season. This is cool, for that's extra cash! (even if you've earned every single shopping trip)

For us, for some odd reason, our card came with prior spendings. Over $200 worth of them! So, we got a $4.50 ECBs, mostly NOT from our spending, knowing that we only started in August. That's extra cash to us!

CVS Money-making 10/5!!

Now today is a great deal. Finally I can use my $4/$20 as well as my ECBs. I checked with Customer's Service and was affirmed that I should be able to do so.

I was disappointed to have not found Arms and Hammer Essential Kit again. It was in the ad but not in the store. It's a money-maker!

Transaction 1:

Aquafresh Toothpaste $0.99, -MQ $0.75 Final price: $0.25

Colgate: $2.99, $2 ECB, Final Price: $0.99

Soleil Razor: $5.99, $4 ECB, - $2 MQ, Final Price: free

Vitamin water: $2.29, $2.29 ECB, Final Price: free

Always infinity: $4.98, $4.98 ECB, Final Price:free

Fillers (Chips) my hubby is happy: $1.98

Coupons: $4/$20, ECB: $5 from before, $4.50 (from nice gift from CVS)

OOP: $10.44 (including $5ECB)

Gain back: $14.27 ECBS

Transaction 2

Centrum Cardio + Centrum Silver: $18.98, $4 ECB, - $4 MQ, $10 Rebate, Final Price: $0.98

Soleil razor cartridges: $5.99, $4 ECB, (forgot to use the coupon!!): $1.99

Coupon: $5/$25, ECB $14.27 from last transaction (YEH!)

Gain back: $8 ECBs

OOP: $1.70

So, in total, I spent $12.14, and I gain back $8 ECBs, filing in for $10 rebate for Centrum.

I earn: $5.98!! (imagine, if I had used the Soleil coupon, I'd earned $7.98!!)

Saturday, October 4, 2008

Grocery Oct 4

We spent quite a bit over this week...I wonder why. I just could not get around knowing it...anyhows, part of the cost was for meals for others (not that much though)...and then we spent a big bomb (1/6 of the money) just towards italian sausage...well we need meat and the sausage deal wasn't there for some reason, so we got the best deal (I hope). We spent $60+ this week. *ouch*
But look at this. This is my proudest. ALL THESE shown cost us $6.40!! All those yogurt (we printed 4 coupons, 2 from each computer) only for $1.20!! I'm not a big fan of Whips, but who can argue against $0.10 yogurt? Ian likes yogurt, so it'll be a great snack.

Alrightee, hope I'll get a great CVS deal tomorrow! Soleil and Centrum!

Youdata: earn money watching ads

Now, I'm trying some sites on earning small money, like or Then I realized I can only keep to one, so I'm with sendearnings. I read emails, do cash offers once in a while if it cost me $0, and the money adds up very slowly. It's fine, cos it doesn't cost me much time. (I can only cash out at $30)

Then I tried youdata. Basically you watch ads, each ad is like $0.20! It really adds up! And they pay every Friday (through paypal)!!! I just got paid $3.36 for a few days of watching ads (it really cost me not much time at all!!)

Try it!!

Walgreens Huggies Deals 10/3

At first I thought I won't do the $5/$20 coupon this time. Then, I remembered, with this coupon and the RR deal on Huggies (that we did last Sun) this can be a very sweet deal! So we did it. We went 3 rounds (one by my hubby) so that we can get 5 diapers (to send in for rebate at Caregivers Marketplace).
So, here's our loot and damage.

Transaction 1:
Huggies Jumbo Size Diapers (30 for Size 5): $9.99
Huggies Jumbo Size Diapers (30 for Size 5): $9.99
Huggies Wipes: $5.99
Used $5/$20 coupon
Get back $5 RR
(Good way to use up the $4RR we got from the Gillette deal!)
Total spent: $16.05 (I count RR as money in and out)

Transaction 2:
Huggies Jumbo Size Diapers (30 for Size 5): $9.99
Huggies Jumbo Size Diapers (30 for Size 5): $9.99
Huggies Wipes: $5.99
Used $5/$20 coupon
Get back $5 RR
(Good way to use up the $4RR we got from the Gillette deal!)
Total spent: $16.05 (I count RR as money in and out)

Transaction 3:
Huggies Jumbo Size Diapers (30 for Size 5): $9.99
Huggies Wipes: $5.99
Energy Boost Drink: $3.99
Eggs: $1.50
Reward item (Keebler cookies) for my son, who has been patient with me in the runs : $0.99
Used $5/$20 coupon
Get back $3 RR, Energy drink will be rebated.
Total Spent: $10.24 (After rebate)

Grand Total: $42.34 (That's mostly out of giftcards)

Now, in perspective,
$42.34 minus
Wipes (696 wipes) - $13.92 (In the cheapest, at BJs)
Eggs - $1.50 (I count that reward item as my "expense")
Equals $26.92 for 150 Size 5 diaper will cost me $0.18 per dipe (I have to spend $0.25 at BJs for these). Now, if Size 3 are in stock it would have been a REAL deal ($0.13 per dipe)

AND...if the rebate from Caregivers' Marketplace comes through...I would have only spent $21.92, that's...$0.15 per dipe! Gosh! What a steal!!

Only thing I didn't like was I have all these Register Rewards to use up in a certain timeframe. And they are considered 1 coupon and I can only use 1 at a time.

So, if you're thinking of the diaper deal, DO IT!

Remember I signed up for the Colgate Free Toothbrush program?

We signed up for our free toothbrush today! How cool is that!!

I LOVE this program. It helps me remember to get Ian to brush. And he is so motivated to brush because he can put the stars (I print out the log).
Now waiting for them to arrive.
