End of the Month - Print those Coupons!


How does the end of the month sneak up on us like this? If you can believe it, it's almost the end of March! File through those coupons (lots are expiring 3/31!) to be sure you use any that you want to use and be sure to print all the coupons you want from coupons.com before they're gone!

In the next few days, we should be seeing new coupons pop up on coupons.com. I'll keep you posted to be sure you print any that you want before they're gone as well!

For now, I'd be sure to print the .75 Jello, .55 Hillshire Farm, and the .75 Gold'n Plump coupons (if they're still available).

Arby's Coupon: Free Sandwich with Drink Purchase!

Head on over here to print an Arby's coupon for a FREE Regular Roast Beef Sandwich with any soft drink purchase.

Expires 4/10.

Thanks, Hip2Save

This brings up one of my favorite freebies...

Anytime you make a purchase at Arby's, turn your receipt over. There is a short survey you can make on the phone or online. At the end of the survey, you'll get a code to write on the receipt, which is good for a FREE Regular Roast Beef or Beef and Cheddar. No other purchase required!

Then, make sure you ask for your receipt - you should get one even with your free sandwich. Turn it over and look for the survey... And, do it all over again. You get the point!

Catalina Deal: Buy 4 Dole Pineapple Chunks, Tidbits 8 oz, get .50 coupon back

Deal Scenario:
Buy 4 at .89, use 2 .55/2 coupons from the 3/21 SS
Pay only $1.56, get a .50 Catalina coupon back. Only .27 each!

This is a regular price for the pineapple. The catalina deal runs through sometime in April (I will double check). If you're willing to hold out, I'm thinking we can get close to FREE pineapple when you ad a sale price into the mix! I'll keep you posted... :)

Sometimes my Catalina coupons double as well. So, when I use it, the .50 coupon doubles to $1. If this is the case, the pineapple is nearly FREE with the regular priced pineapple!

Lastly, when these Catalina sales run, they are often at all 3 of our grocery stores: Hornbacher's, Cashwise and Sunmart. The Cashwise regular price on this same product is .88 and I don't know about Sunmart. (If you can confirm, let us know) I think we will see a sale price for sure in one of the store in the next few weeks. I'm hanging on to my coupons!


Another Catalina Deal: Buy 3 Ziploc, get $2 Catalina Coupon back
Thanks to Brenda for letting me know about this one!
Price at Hornbacher's start at $2.29
Use the .40 coupon from the 3/21 SS or the .55 coupon from the 2/21 SS (if the Slider variety are included)
Final price after coupons and Catalina: .63-.83 each!

Again, these are regular prices and likely this deal runs for a few weeks. Unless you need them, we might see a sale price during the Catalina deal!

Any other deals at Hornbacher's this week? Let us know in the comments!

Our Family 18 ct Large Eggs $1.47

Kellogg's Cereal (Frosted Flakes, Fruit Loops, Corn Pops, Apple Jacks) $2.50

Use the .70/1 Frosted Flakes, Fruit Loops and Corn Pops blinkie machine coupon I've seen in the cereal aisle at Hornbacher's and Sunmarts or the $1.50/2 Raisin Bran or Frosted Mini Wheats coupon here or here.
Final price: as low as $1.50/box.

Catalina deal:
Between 3/19 and 4/10, purchase 3 Kellogg's cereals in one transaction and receive a checkout coupon good for one gallon of milk. Purchase 5-6, receive 2 FREE gallon of milk. Purchase 7 or more, get 3 FREE gallon of milk coupons.

I would consider a free gallon of milk coupon to be worth about $3 these days, so here are the deal scenarios, considering that value:

Purchase 3 cereals, pay as little as $1.50 each after coupon. After Milk coupon, it's like paying as little as .50 per box. Now we're talking.

Purchase 5 cereals, pay as little as $1.50 each after coupons. After Milk coupons, it's like paying as little as .30 each!

Purchase 7 cereals, pay as little as $1.50 each after coupons. After Milk coupons, it's like paying as little as .22 each!

Tip: This Catalina deal runs through 4/10. There are likely to be even better deals on cereal. If you have coupons expiring or need cereal, this is a good deal, but if you can wait, my cheapskate sense tells me that we'll see a better sale price than $2.50, making for even less expensive cereal, and possibly even FREE after coupons and Catalina!

Big News for FM Cheapskate!

As you can tell by the absence of Sunmart deals and other posts this week, it's been an out-of-the-ordinary week here. Many of you are in the Fargo area and know we've been busy physically and emotionally preparing for another Red River flood. Thankfully, this year the crest is predicted to be lower, and the preparation has seemed to be less chaotic than last year.

All that being said, in addition to watching the river rise, there has been a lot going on behind the scenes here at FM Cheapskate. I'm working with a few new advertisers to bring you more ads that are relevant and even more coupons right on my site.

Perhaps, ok, definitely the MOST exciting news I have for you today is that I, yours truly, FM Cheapskate, am going to be providing the weekly Cashwise and Sunmart deals for a blog that has inspired me and encouraged me in my and literally thousands of others as well: Money Saving Mom!

Money Saving Mom is launching a National Store Deals list and Cashwise and Sunmart are included! (At this time, Hornbacher's won't be included.) How cool is this?? Needless to say, it's been tough to keep it in til now. I've been waiting to tell you til it launch and I could direct you there.

So...

Ready to see me on a blog I never thought in a million year I'd be featured on? Head on over here.

When you come back, I'll still be here...  Trying to keep my cool. :)

Weekend Coupon Preview

If you head out today to buy your Star Tribune today, look for 2 coupon inserts, a SmartSource and a RedPlum.

EDIT: I've heard from a few folks that there's no RedPlum today.  Maybe tomorrow?  Hopefully!

For a full preview of the coupons included, head over to the Sunday Coupon Preview!

I just posted a full FAQ on buying the weekend papers for coupons. Check it out here!

Couponing 101: Coupons in the Weekend Papers


In our area, I recommend buying the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
The Star Tribune carries many more coupons than the smaller local papers, because Minneapolis is a much larger market. Added bonus: Now Saturday's Star Tribune has the Sunday coupons in it! Get them a day early, and for only $1! If you don't find inserts in the Saturday papers or can't get out to get the paper on Saturday, the Sunday Star costs only $2, and is available at the same locations on Sunday.

Where can I buy the Star Tribune?
They are available first thing Saturday morning at most newsstands in the Fargo Moorhead area, such as Grocery stores, Gas Stations, even Drugstores like Walgreens and CVS! And, stores like Walmart and Target don't carry the newspapers.

How many papers should I buy?
When you're starting out, I'd say that 2 is enough just so that you're not overwhelmed. I quickly started buying 4 papers once I understood the benefit. The benefit is that when an item goes on it's rock bottom sale price combined with a coupon, you can buy 4 rather than just 1, since you bought 4 papers and have 4 coupons. This is part of my "buy-ahead" philosophy. We have a family of 3, and one is young child, so if you have a larger family, you might start with 4 papers. Now that I have a pretty well-stocked pantry and stockpile of necessities, I often opt for only 2 papers. Even now, though, if there is a week with several inserts or a few coupons I know I'll use, I buy 4 or more.

Check the paper for the inserts you're expecting before you buy - just to be sure all are included.
The worst feeling is getting home and finding no inserts in your paper! If you get strange looks from the cashier, just let them know you buy the paper for the coupons and are just checking to be sure all the inserts are included. :)

Sunday Coupon Preview
I like to know what to expect before I head out to get the paper. For a full preview, head on over to the Sunday Coupon Preview. If you know that there are 2 inserts scheduled for the weekend and find a paper with only 1 insert, you'll know to keep looking. If you don't find what you were expecting, it's possible the machine missed that paper, or that our area just didn't receive it. It's hard to know which. However, I often post a coupon preview on Saturdays, where others share what inserts they found. Hopefully that's a good resource!

Coupon Inserts
There are several brands of inserts in the paper. They are: SmartSource, RedPlum, P&G, and General Mills. When I refer to a coupon found in a coupon insert from the paper, I'll refer to it as the 3/14 SS if it was from the SmartSource. Or, 1/31 RP for the RedPlum insert from 1/31.

Note: I've had readers suggest the Twin Cities Pioneer Press as an alternative to the Star Tribune, if you can't find the Star on Saturdays. The Pioneer Press costs $1 on Saturday and Sunday and carries more coupons than the Fargo Forum. However, you will find that the Pioneer Press tends to have slightly fewer coupons than the Star Tribune.

Walgreens - $2.99 Clementines!

I picked a bag of these Clementines last week at the Moorhead Walgreens, and thought it was such a random thing. But just today I saw them advertised on the sign outside, so apparently it's still going on.

$2.99 is a great price for a bag of these awesome little fruits!

Anyone know if Fargo Walgreens has these as well?

Dave Ramsey - Total Money Makeover LIVE Event Simulcast!

This weekend, you have an incredible opportunity to see Dave Ramsey LIVE in our area! 




Bethel Church in Fargo is hosting a Live Nationwide Simulcast of Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover Live Event!

Discounted Local Gift Cards!


How cool is this? I was just recommended this site by a friend. Great Plains Live is a site where you can buy gift cards to local businesses at a reduced rate!

Head on over here to see all the discounts that are available. My personal favorite? Buy a $15 Rapid Refill gift card for $10! I LOVE Rapid Refill, but haven't gotten coupons in the mail since we moved over to Moorhead a few months ago, so this is PERFECT for me! I find that I use about one cartridge per month printing coupons.

Another fave?  The restaurant gift cards!  If you're willing to plan ahead with your eating out, you can save big!  And, since they are Gift Cards, you can still use coupons on your meal order if you have them. 

There are LOTS more! Even discounts for traveling to the Minneapolis area. Head on over here to see all the discounts that are available!

Choose delivery by USPS for an extra $1, or choose pickup to pick them up yourself in Fargo for no shipping charge!

EDIT: I ordered some Rapid Refill gift certificates just last night and was able to pick them up right away this morning.  They are located at 64 Broadway, at AM 1100 The Flag.  And, they were super friendly!

Thanks, Nathan!

It's a GREAT Day for Coupons!

It's been awhile since we've seen such a great week for coupons!

There are 3 inserts in the Star Tribune: a Smartsource, a RedPlum and a Proctor & Gamble.

Even a coupon for a FREE Frank's Hot Sauce! (Up to $1.39 - I've seen this size at Sunmart in case you have problems finding the smaller size.)

A great week to buy a few - I bought 4 this week just because there were so many awesome coupons! If you're new around here, this Cheapskate recommends the Minneapolis Star Tribune, which is available at newstands across the FM area like grocery stores and gas stations.

Get out and get those coupons!

Menards Weekend Sale - Ends Today!



I didn't realize Menards was doing a 3-day sale til I saw a post from friend and reader Stacy S on FM Cheapskate's facebook page yesterday. Head on over and become a fan if you're not already!

There are a few deals worth mentioning!

10' White U-Style Vinyl Gutter FREE after Mail-In-Rebate and $10 non-rebate purchase! Limit 10 per household, $3 each before rebate.

4 pack AA or AAA Rayovac Alkaline Batteries FREE after Mail-In-Rebate with $10 non-rebate purchase! Limit 4, $2 each before rebate.

Dog and Cat Treats FREE after Mail-In-Rebate with $10 non-rebate purchase! Limit 10 bags, $1.50 before rebate. Assorted Varieties 4.5-7 oz

Most Menards FREE rebate items require you to spend an additional $10 on non-rebated items. We try to keep a running list of smaller items that we need around the house, so that we spend $10 on something that we already need in order to get the FREE after MIR items.

There are many more FREE after MIR items that started today, but I'll post seperately about them soon!

I Shouldn't Be Laughing This Hard...

OK, so... only people who regularly print way too many coupons at home can understand the comedy of this video. I would understand if you think I'm crazy, because a video of my printer printing coupons shouldn't be this funny. But I can't stop laughing and had to share it with you.

Maybe because it reminds me of an off balance washing machine.

Maybe because at the end, the printer light starts blinking, as if I wouldn't already be aware there's a problem.

Whatever the case, I know I'm exposing myself as the coupon nerd that I am by posting this, but I can't help it. I'm tired of laughing alone.

And, apparently I need a new printer. :)

Make sure you're volume is up good 'n loud for this.

HOT New Old Orchard Coupons!

They just keep coming! Coupons.com has released 2 new Old Orchard coupons that happen to make for really inexpensive and even FREE juice this week at Cashwise and Sunmart.

At Cashwise, this week, the 64 oz juice cocktails are only .99, so FREE after the .50/1 Old Orhcard juice product coupon here, and Sunmart has them for only $1.49, so .49 after the coupon.

Also, Cashwise has the OJ Frozen concentrates $1.25. Use the $1/4 coupon here, and pay only $1 each! At Sunmart, the OJ Concentrates are $1.29 each, so only $1.04 each after coupon! OJ doesn't usually go that low, so it's a great price!

Not sure if I've shared this tip with you all before, so here goes. Most all of the coupons on Coupons.com have 2 prints per computer. However, after the first print, the coupon tends to migrate back to the last page. So, after you print it one time, scroll back to the last few pages to make sure to get both of your 2 prints per computer. Have 2 computers in the house? Fabulous, you'll get 4 copies of each coupon!

Free or low priced items like these keep well, so buy as many now as you can for FREE or cheap, and you won't have to buy it later for full price!

New Holiday Station Coupons!



Holiday Stations has released a few new coupons!

Go here to print a coupon for a FREE 20 oz Coffee or Cappuccino with any purchase, expires 3/14.

And here for a coupon for a FREE 16 oz HP juice with any purchase, expires 3/31.

Sunmart Deals 2/28-3/6

Aquastar Tilapia Fillets, 2 lbs $3.99!

Premium Boneless Pork Chops, 3.14 lb (10 chops) $10

I always mention this sale, not necessarily because it is a great price on pork chops (more then $3/lb), but because this is a great week to shop the "reduced for quick sale" section at your Sunmart store. If you haven't found this section before, ask at the meat counter and they'll show you. It's often a small section hidden in the back of the meat department. Now, this meat does need to be used within a few days or frozen for later use. However, this is one of my best tips for getting a great price on meat. When these econopacks of pork chops go on sale 10/10, you can often find the 10 packs for as little as $6 (less than $2/lb) in the reduced meat section!

Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast, sold in econopacks $1.97/lb

Red or Green Chilean Grapes .97/lb!

Our Family Ice Cream (Half Gallons), $1.97

Farmland Pre-Sliced Meats or Cubes, 14-16 oz $3.49

or
Use the $1 off any Nash Brothers Trading Company product coupon here (these coupons state one per customer per visit)
Final price: .89 each!

Note: Though the in-ad coupons for freezer items say Manufacturer's coupon, most of them also specify that they are good ONLY at Nash Finch supplied stores (like Sunmart). However, there are a few on the back that don't give that specification. In the case of these coupons, use them anywhere you'd like to get the best price!

Quaker Cereal 20.7-22 ox, $2.50
If Quaker Squares are included, use the $1 coupon from the coupon inserts (date?)
Final price: $1.50 - a pretty decent price for Quaker cereals!
