$30 Rite Aid Gift Card with a transferred prescription

I looooove these type of promotions! If you happen to have a prescription that needs a refill, take advantage of this offer. Even if you don't get the paper, you can walk right in the store and grab a coupon out of their flyer. I refilled a vitamin prescription today for about $4 and got a $30 Rite Aid Gift Card. Here's some things to think about when doing these types of offers:

1. Usually, you can only redeem one coupon per household, every six months. But, lots of pharmacies run these promotions. Keep your eyes open for coupons in your flyers.

2. Transferring a prescription usually takes more time than a refill or new prescription so be prepared to wait a bit longer.

3. Keep your eyes open for other deals in the store while you're waiting for your prescription. For example, I was going to purchase one brand of diapers but I saw that another had a rebate. I purchased the ones with the rebate, entered my rebate online and in about 3 weeks I'll get $5 back. Also, I noticed a promotion going on in the store where if you purchased a certain amount in the store for part of November and December you would get another Rite Aid gift card. I applied for that online too although I'm not sure if I'll get that one because the purchase was made with a gift card. If I do get it though, it will be another $5 back to me.

stoufffers-we love you!

Did you all know that there's a Stouffer's outlet in Springville? They're the makers of all things Nestle and Stouffer's (think yummy lasagne). They even make Hot Pockets. They sell their scratch and dented stuff there and the prices are usually half off. The selection varies, so you need to check the store fairly often. I've been there and found the huge lasagne trays for only $5 and the mac and cheese for only $3. I googled the address and can't seem to find it, but I can tell you the directions. The exit you'll need to get off on is the first Springville exit (or the Flying "J" exit). At the light take a right (so these are directions from Provo because most of my peeps are there, anyone else can just look for the ginormous Flying "J") and go down a kind of long empty road. On your right hand side you'll see the tiny outlet (you can even see it from the freeway if you're paying attention). They're not open on Sundays or Mondays. Saturdays are debatable. I know that they are at least open at 9:00 am and they close at around 4:00. I hope this information will be helpful. Have a great day!

Welcome to Yardsalemonkey!

I so love a good sale (and who doesn't). I started to post deals on my Food Storage Site, Food Storage Diva, but I realized that I have so many ideas and find so many good deals that I needed a site devoted entirely to a good deal. Feel free to look around and enjoy my very first post :)

Here's the first deal of the day. Even though I'm a novice "Coupon Diva", I came away will all this food for a mere, $58. I spent about an hour looking over details of the ads & gathering my coupons together and voila:

6 boxes of cereal
10 cake mixes
20 canned corn & beans
7 frozen packages of veggies
2 gallons of milk
6 boxes of turkey bags
6 microwaved popped corn
2 boxes of taco shells
7 cool whips
14 instant jello
6 tubes of crescent rolls
1 lb butter
2 free Tinkerbell bowls (for my girly of course)
and.....15lbs of turkey

If you break it down even further, for the amount of items I received, it was as if I paid $.60 cents for each item on my grocery list. "Couponing" is pretty straightforward, but there are some tips that will help you. Here's a few to start you out with:

1. Check with your local paper to see if they have a coupon deal. What they'll do is set you up to receive something like five Sunday papers, which means 5x's the coupons. The subscription is usually about $15. But if you're like me and used almost $30 in coupons on your last visit, it pays for itself pretty quickly.

2. Do the shopping before the kids wake up or after they go to bed. Makes for a much happier Mom and kids.

3. I see a lot of deals where you can buy two items and then get something free. Albertson's does this a lot and today they offered FREE MILK for every 4 boxes of Kellogg's cereal you buy. This is a super deal, especially if you have a coupon for each box. And, here's the best part, in the paper, it will usually state that you get FREE MILK and then in parenthesis it will say "up to $4.50 in value". I used to just grab whatever milk I saw first, no matter what the cost was. But, did you realize that you can use all of that money? For instance, milk was on sale for 2 for $4.00, so I actually got 2 gallons of milk and $.50 applied to the rest of the bill? Awesomeness.
