I was extremely disappointed this last week when I wanted to do the Revlon deal at Walgreens that I’m sure many of you have read about by now. The reason why is because I couldn’t find the $2 off Walgreen’s coupon in the 7/24 SmartSource insert. This ONE coupon would have taken $2 off EVERY Revlon item I decided to pick up saving me as much as $16 if I had picked up 8 items! This would have made for some great Christmas stocking stuffers in my opinion but I never had the chance to test the deal due to the missing coupons. Normally, I will throw out Dollar General ads and the like that get placed in the middle of inserts (to save room in my unclipped inserts file) so I was worried I had done the same with the Walgreens coupons ad (surely I wouldn’t throw out COUPONS!). However, I’m relieved to learn they were never in our inserts here in Oklahoma (a bitter-sweet confirmation as I also learn we rarely get them).
So, this weekend be sure to flip through your SmartSource insert and locate these valuable coupons and hang on to them as they don’t expire until 9/24. If you can’t find them in your paper for some reason I read about these great coupons from Consumer Queen. She has access to the Daily Oklahoman and you can find those at local convenience stores outside of OKC on Sunday only. If you haven’t stockpiled your paper towels enough so far this month you’ll want to check it out.
I get lots of feedback on the idea of doubling coupons and the fact that CountryMart will only allow one per family, per day. This rule doesn’t have to hold you back from tremendous savings. If you live outside of town, you know that going to the store every day can quickly use enough gas to cost you any savings you may have found while shopping. So, trying to double your entire coupon inventory may not be a money-savvy option.
I live only 9 miles from my closest CountryMart and I find it easy to get up there twice a week, but I have more coupons than that to get all the deals I hope to get in any given week, so to ease my stress levels (and to take it easy on my gas levels) I use more than one coupon in a shopping trip even if it only doubles the first. With the right sale you are still getting the deal cheaper than you could anywhere else and you have taken an additional shopping trip off your list.
I write this article today to bring your attention to Consumer Queen’s post about not having to double every coupon and how you can get out of that mind frame. Also, keep in mind that if a coupon doubles doesn’t necessarily mean you should try to wait to use it at CountryMart. If you’ve been couponing for any length of time you know that it’s difficult to find the sale items that are free after coupons each week and so, sometimes it’s easier to find them where you can at a price that is right for you and your family/sanity.
These deals were spotted by Queen Mum over at Consumer Queen so these prices reflect OKC prices but chances are they will be close if not the same right here in Lawton. These are just a few, you will want to continue reading for the rest of these great deals!
