2 Inserts Sunday

We should see 2 inserts in our papers this Sunday, 1 Redplum and 1 SmartSource.  There are a lot of great coupons coming, just not a whole lot I'm looking forward to this week, and nothing that makes me want to run out and buy multiple copies of the paper... but there's always a surprise or two when the paper actually arrives, so we will see come Sunday. 


For a full preview of what to expect in your Sunday paper, check out the Sunday Coupon Preview here.

Set Your Tivo: Extreme Couponing Series debuts April 6

The show they aired at the end of last year did well enough that they ordered a series. The new series debuts on April 6, so it's time to set your Tivo to record all the episodes. I'd hate for you to miss one.  If you missed my thoughts on the original show, you can read them here.

If you missed the original, here's a clip from it:

FREE Book From Read It Forward

Read it Forward is offering you another chance at a FREE book. These seem to be coming more and more often. This is the second one I've seen this week. I just got yet another free book delivered from this this week as well (Radio Shangri-La, which I can't wait to get started reading).

The book they are offering today is Redemption by Stacey Lannert. This book looks to be a very compelling memoir.

The books you get from Read it Forward are advance reader copies that are not intended for resale.  (Paperback when paperback isn't available yet).  Personally, I don't care what format they are in if they are FREE and good books, and so far all the books I've gotten through Read It Forward (and I've gotten quite a few now) have been great reads.

Eat Cheap With

I've not tried yet mainly because until this week they only had one restaurant listed in my area.  I just read on Rocket City Savings, however, that we now have about 16 different restaurants listed so I might finally give them a try.  Normally, is like a 1/2 Off site, you can buy a gift certificate to various restaurants for about 50% Off.  For instance, the first restaurant listed in my area is Gibson's BBQ, which is offering $10gc for just $5 or a $25gc for just $15.  However, right now is offering additional savings, if you enter code: SAVE at checkout, you can get a $25gc for just $2.

Before you buy on, however, I do suggest that you take a look at the restrictions on each gc, as there always is one.  Usually, there is a minimum purchase that is above the amount of the gift certificate.  Ie. On the example I gave above, for the $10gc the minimum purchase is $20 and for the $25gc, the minimum purchase is $35.  Sometimes the minimum purchases are even higher (I've seen minimum purchases of $50 on the $25gc many times). Of course, if you are getting that $25gc for $2, paying an extra $10 to take home a whole pie or dinner for tomorrow really won't seem like much.  Check it out and see what the offerings are in your area.
