Prepare & E-File Your Return for FREE

If you haven't yet filed your simple tax return these two promos are still available that allow you to prepare, print & file your simple return for free. If you are doing itemized or something beyond a standard return you'll probably need to purchase a different version, but since most folks file the simple return there's really no need to pay to prepare it or e-file it.  (Remember back in the olden days when you had to pay good money to have someone e-file it? And stand in line? Uphill? Both ways... with no shoes!?)

H&R Block Free Edition - Free to prepare, print, and e-file! It's easy and guaranteed to be accurate! 

TurboTax Free Edition - Guides you to your Maximum Refund! Prepare, print, e-file FREE! 

My suggestion - try doing the process on both and see which one gives you the better return before you hit submit.  Chances are that they are pretty similar overall and should be pretty close on the numbers.  If not, I'd question if one is missing some key info either in their process or in the numbers you entered.

Sunday Coupon Preview

It seems like the Sunday Coupon Preview early list has been short by 1 insert every week.  It looks like this week is no different.  We initially expected no inserts for this week, but it looks like there will be 1 after all; a Redplum insert.  That said, after looking at the list of expected coupons I don't really see anything that is going to have me running out for a paper this week.  Do you see any Qs that light your fire?

The "Could This Cashier Be Any Slower" Trip

Went to Walgreens today to pick up some free deodorant and cheap body wash, while using my Register Rewards from last week.  I grabbed what I needed pretty quick, but the cashier could not have been much slower (which worked to make me late for my hair appointment).  It took me 15 minutes to check out because this woman felt the need to read every single coupon before attempting to scan it.  I had 3 "Buy Olay BW, get Secret Deo Free" coupons to go with the 3 Olay Body Wash for $10 (and get a $3RR) deal.  Each time she rang one of these coupons it was like she got totally confused and couldn't grasp that they were the same thing she'd just rang and therefore the prices were the same.  I wanted to climb over the counter and ring the sale for her.

Anyway, here's how things ended up....

3 Olay Body Wash (@ 3/$10 )
4 Dove Visible Care Body Wash (@ $2 each)
2 Secret deo (@ $2.99 each)
1 Secret twin pack (@$4 each)
2 Halls cough drops (@ $2.29 each)
2 Snickers peanut butter (@.49 each)
1 Milky Way Dark (@ .49 each)

Used the following coupons
In Ad Q  - Halls .99 each
(1)$2 Off Olay body wash
(3) Buy Olay bw Get Secret deo free
(1) BOGO halls (-$2)
(1) BOGO Snickers peanut butter
(4) $1 Off Dove Visible Care
(1)$1 Off Secret

$11 in Register Rewards
Total (including $2.51 in tax): $4.47 (got back $3 RR)
