Extreme Couponing: Three Stores/Six Deals for YOU.

If you're a beginner couponer, or not any kind of couponer at all, you might want to choose one of these deals and just try it out, see how it works.

Target
(These deals can be found at any Target, not just a SuperTarget.)

Deal #1:
  • Step One: Go to Target's Coupon section and print the Target coupon for Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Cereal.
  • Step Two: Go to the Kellogg's website and print the manufacturer coupon for Kellogg's Crunchy Nut Cereal.*
  • Step Three: Go to Target (and take a reusable bag since Target will pay you .5 for each reusable bag you use) and buy one box of cereal. Pay for it using those two coupons and .50 plus whatever tax your state might charge.
* Many of these boxes have a mail-in-rebate, so don't throw away your receipt!

Deal #2:
  • Step One: Check the Target ad for your area, do you see the "Buy 2, Get $5 Target Gift Card" promo on P&G products? If so, move to step 2.
  • Step Two: Did you get the Sunday (2.27) newspaper? If so, go look at the Procter & Gamble coupons. Choose two (or more) coupons for products you think you'll use sometime within the next three months. Cut those coupons out!
  • Step Three: Take your reusable bag to Target and buy those products, using the coupons from the Sunday paper. With every two P&G items you buy, the Target cashier will hand you a $5 Target gift card. Choose your P&G purchases and coupons carefully and you could save a whole lot of money.
If those don't interest you, maybe these Target deals will?

Walgreen's
Deal #1:
  • Step One: Print out a coupon for Motrin PM
  • Step Two: Take your coupon to Walgreen's and purchase one box of Motrin PM (20 count) for $3.
  • Step Three: Give the cashier your coupon for $1 and $2 (plus tax) to pay for the Motrin and she will hand you a $3 RR coupon that can be used on your next purchase at Walgreens. (Or you may be able to use that coupon to buy food at your local grocery store. Ask me how.)
Deal#2:
  • Step One: Go to Walgreens and buy NasoGel Drip-Free Spray for $4.99

All of these deals are assuming that you aren't a couponer and do not have any coupons on hand. If you do have coupons on hand, look to see if you have coupons for deals I've suggested - and use those coupons to increase your savings!
