Heather and I took our cameras couponing with us again this week! Check out all our loot! Then, see all our Target deals here. And our Walgreens shopping trip here. While you’re watching, make sure to sign up for our YouTube channel!
If u buy in separate transactions u get RR each time, I have done it like 5 times this week. Tecnu gel is also free after $5 RR. So u can stock up!!! And as long as you don't use RR that u received for that item u still get RR. You can also redeem your balance rewards to pay for these it's and still get the RRs.
As a single guy I appreciate all of these deals and letting us know about it. Whenever I want to host a party I'll DEFINITELY check this out so I can throw a great party without breaking the bank!
Heather and I just wrapped up a couple of new videos we think you’ll really like! Both are about how to use the newest coupon rebate apps: Checkout 51 and Shopmium! We’ll have the videos ready to publish on Monday, but we’re sending out a sneak preview to all of our email subscribers tomorrow morning! Enter your email below to receive the videos early!
The app SnipSnap may have started out as an innocent way to remember store coupons, but it has turned into a fraudulent operation, enabling thousands to illegally redeem pictures of manufacturer coupons, costing stores hundreds of thousands of dollars. Check out why KCL needs the couponing community to steer clear of SnipSnap!
Target recently launched Cartwheel, a free “social” savings program! Cartwheel is similar to shopping apps, like Ibotta, in that the offers can be combined with other coupons.
The site states: “Together with Facebook, Cartwheel lets you connect with friends to share your favorite deals plus save money on the products you love.”
The program may be accessed at cartwheel.target.com with a smartphone, tablet or computer. Or, download the app (from the app store) on your smartphone. A Facebook account is required.
Offers are easy to add: just click on the image and you’re done!
To redeem a Cartwheel offer, either present a printed copy of your Cartwheel barcode or show it on a mobile device at checkout. It only needs to be scanned once because all offers connect to the same barcode.
Offers are valid in U.S. Target stores only.
After signing up, a user automatically gets to add up to ten offers. “Unlock badges” to access more.
Sign up now and check back here for hot deals using Cartwheel!
I have a question. How do you redeem offers? I used about 10 cartwheel coupons today and I don't know how to make it show up on my app so it will show me how much I saved. Do I have to scan the items or what? There is no place to take a picture of my receipt either.... Or will it just do it automatically?
I purchased 4 of the same item, but instead of getting 10% cartwheel...it only gave me 10% off 2 of the items...so essentially only 5%...and this has been happening a lot

With this easy-to-use budgeting method, you allot cash at the first of the month into categories like groceries, entertainment, transportation and clothes. Plan out your purchases, tuck away your debit and credit card and stick to the budgeted cash. When you’re out of cash, you’re done spending for month.

With all the great money-saving apps, your smartphone can be a excellent tool for helping lower your bills. Check out awesome apps like iBotta, Endorse* and ShopKick. Use these instant-savings and rebate apps in addition to coupons to save even more money!

Save on Dining and Entertainment
Entertainment and a good meal can be a sanity saver when you’re sticking to a close budget! Put aside a little each month for things like movies, fun and eating out–and before you leave the house, check out sites like Restaurant.com, Living Social and Groupon for vouchers that can save you more than 50% on your overall bill!
Plan your retail purchases ahead and purchase gift cards at discount gift-card retailers: PlasticJungle, Raise, GiftCardGranny, CardCash or CardPool. Purchase gift cards between 3-30% off, then use them like a debit card at checkout. You can also sell your unwanted gift cards which pay up to 92% of their value in cash.

That is so great to hear! Glad we could help out!
Woot! I'm a living example of this! I graduated in May 2012 from Arizona State University. Started couponing Sept 2012. It was frustrating sometimes because I wanted to do all the deals and it seemed like there were so many rules to this. But I didn't give up! And now I'm saving and providing for myself more than ever. I started out with a $13,500 student loan and have paid it down to $6,000. I plan to have it paid off by January 2014. I am grateful for this site for teaching me more than just getting a free razor, but also being money savvy and that hip/pretty/smart girls like Joanie and Heather coupon too. They make couponing cool!

Our Kroger no longer doubles either.....So off to Randalls!!! (Safeway chain)
I do my grocery shopping at Kroger. I used to buy everything at Walmart but recently switched to Kroger and started couponing. I am saving money and I love it. I rarely even go to Walmart anymore. I shop at Target and Walgreens for other stuff too. I'm not "Krazy" yet but I am saving money and my husband is happy about that. :)
Do you want to know our deepest, darkest secret? Today, we must confess: We have Costco cards. After years of swearing against wholesale club stores, we’re coming clean. Watch this video to get tips for the best buys at Costco!
I must say I love Costco, a lot. You can return any item if you have a problem with it. The meat/seafood is the best price and quality I've seen. Steak has gone up, but I think steak prices have gone up in the grocery stores too. So can't fault Costco for that. Even though it is just my husband and I right now, I still shop at Costco at least twice a month. I also have the executive membership so I earn cash back on my purchases (not on gas, the AMEX you earn on gas and you receive 2 rebate checks, one from AMEX and one from Costco). The fruit/veggies are excellent and much cheaper than the grocery store chain that I go to, Giant. I live right outside of D.C., so anything and everything is way more expensive than if I travel an hour south to grocery shop. Block cheese and specialty is a better price than with a coupon and if you wrap it well with plastic wrap it won't get moldy as quickly because it doesn't let moisture in. I still coupon for smaller quantity items, but when Costco sends out their coupon book I try to match up and do a price comparison before I buy to know I'm getting a better price. I only buy Charmin and a little $.20/1 coupon for Charmin isn't going to make much of a difference when Costco is offering $2 off the huge pack. I think the $100 membership price is so worth it too. You can easily get that money back and more with the rewards system. Watch out though, at my Costco they are very strict about family members/friends using your membership. They do check the picture on the back of the card with the person checking out.
I save at Costco buy buying their polish hotdog with a drink and the yoghurt ice cream. All for less than $4!

It is sad to say, the show "Extreme Couponing" has led a lot of people, usually those new to Couponing, to believe that you can get thousand of dollars worth of stuff for free or close to it. So if the email was true this may be the case for this person. I can make up many reasons what happened here but it does come down to that we are all responsible for our own decisions....which means you can't expect a refund from this site or those that run it because it did not work out they way you wanted it to. I also have had at times where coupons were not accepted because they would not scan or I grabbed the wrong product by accident because of not reading the coupon right and I just tell them no thank you I don't want that and usually there are no problems. Now over $5700 worth of stuff maybe a different situation but if I did not have the money I would have just told them politely that I don't want the stuff and walk away or offer to help put it back.
As in the video- it could have been done a little differently.... I do think their points are valid but I think calling people names is not necessary here or in the video. As in mistakes in spelling, yes that can be form someone that does not know how to spell correctly or can also be from typing on a phone or tablet, has happened to me before and probably still will.
I think KCL is a great site and has helped me find lots of deals and appreciate all their hard work they do in finding and posting these deals. I also appreciate all the brags and post from readers that help me get great deals too. I have recommended this site to many of my friends/family that ask me about how do I get such great deals at Couponing.
I was born and raised here in the US. English is my first and only language. The only way I know what Ditto means is from the movie Ghost with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze!! So you are not ignorant and you have taught me something new about the word's use in other languages/cultures! You have a great day as well!!
