Sunday's Coupons Preview

It looks like we will have one insert in this Sunday's paper and it will be from Redplum

For McDonald's fans it looks like there will be some McD's Qs along the same lines as those I received in the mail earlier this week (a FREE fruit & maple oatmeal, among others).  Overall, however I'm not seeing much that's making me want to run out grab the paper.  However, if you have pets and are looking for pet food or treat coupons it looks like there will be a few.

For a full preview of what you can expect to find in the coupons section of your paper this week, check out Sunday Coupon Previews.

Another Bad Couponer

What we need to take away from this story is that if you buy something with a coupon and take it back, don't be surprised if your refund is pro-rated based on the discount you received.

Read the story here.

The short version: A New Jersey woman attempted to sue a dept store for .80cents.  She used a coupon for $5 off when purchasing $100 worth of items, then when she returned one of the items she got upset because they didn't refund her the full price.  She ended up dropping the suit... I'm guessing she was worried about looking bad.  It's too late.

$1/2 Aunt Jemima Coupon

These are on sale BOGO right now at Publix and I was just looking for a coupon for them before heading there earlier today.  Looks like I might be making a second trip before this sale is over.

Go to Aunt Jemima Frozen Breakfast facebook page and "like" them, then watch the video under "Our Kitchen" (I had to look for it, as the video kinda blends into the rest of the images (just click on the image directly to the right of the text about watching the video).

CVS Customers Check Your Email

If you are a CVS Extra Care Card holder be sure to check your email.  CVS sent out another round of great coupons today.  I got $5/$30.  Coupons are good through 2/20.

If you have an Extra Care Card and haven't ever gotten any emails from them, be sure to log in on CVS and register your card with your email address.

FREE Book From Read It Forward

Read It Forward is giving away another FREE book.  This time it's The Informationist, by Taylor Stevens and it looks like it could be pretty interesting if you like your fiction with some intrigue.

Vanessa "Michael" Munroe deals in information — expensive information — working for corporations, heads of state, private clients, and anyone else who can pay for her unique brand of expertise. Born to missionary parents in lawless central Africa, Munroe took up with an infamous gunrunner and his mercenary crew when she was just fourteen. After almost a decade building a new life and lucrative career from her home base in Dallas, she's never looked back. Until now.

Price of Gas vs Printer Ink

If you print coupons as much as most of us do, then you already know that the price for ink is outragous!

My husband sent me the following funny this morning.... funny but true....

The price of Gas versus Printer Ink

All these examples do NOT imply that gasoline is cheap; it just illustrates how outrageous some prices are.... You will be really shocked by the last one! -

Compared with Gasoline......
Think a gallon of gas is expensive?
This makes one think, and also puts things in perspective.

Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 ... $10.32 per gallon

Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19 ...........$9.52 per gallon

Gatorade 20 oz $1.59 ..... $10.17 per gallon

Ocean Spray 16 oz $1.25 ......... $10.00 per gallon

Brake Fluid 12 oz $3.15 ...... $33.60 per gallon

Vick's Nyquil 6 oz $8.35 ... $178.13 per gallon

Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85 .. $123.20 per gallon

Whiteout 7 oz $1.39 ....... . $25.42 per gallon

Scope 1.5 oz $0.99 .....$84.48 per gallon

And this is the REAL KICKER...

Evian water 9 oz $1.49..$21.19 per gallon! $21.19 for WATER and the buyers don't even know the source

(Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)

Ever wonder why printers are so cheap?

So they have you hooked for the ink.
Someone calculated the cost of the ink at...............
(you won't believe it....but it is true........) $5,200 a gal. (five thousand two hundred dollars)

So, the next time you're at the pump,be glad your car doesn't run on water, Scope, or Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or Printer Ink!

Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump...

I've always kinda thought it was often cheaper to buy a new printer (with full slate of ink) than to buy ink to refill your printer.  And even knowing how high ink prices are, when you think of it in terms of gallons... (wow! I wonder how many times you could refill your printer cartridges with a gallon of ink?)
