I also got a coupon e-mailed to me from Noodles & Co. for a free bowl (it's good for a set amount of time, not just on my birthday.
Remember to set up a couponing e-mail address that is separate from your personal e-mail so that you don't get spam in your regular e-mail account. Try Yahoo! or Gmail.
I've ordered chicken twice and ground beef once. They sell their chicken in 40-lb boxes. It seems like a large amount, but my family of 4 can easily go through the entire box in 3 or 4 months. The chicken was $1.59/lb last time it was delivered, which is unbeatable! It comes fresh (never frozen), and I plan to spend a few hours on the day I pick it up trimming, cooking, shredding, chopping, sealing and freezing it. Then I'm all set for the next few months. Their chicken has no added hormones, additives or aritifical ingredients.
The ground beef comes in 10-lb chubs of fresh (never frozen), finely ground meat. You can buy either 93/7 super lean for $2.89/lb or 86/14 lean for $2.69/lb. I bought the 93/7 and was very pleased with the quality and grind of the meat. Again, I broke it down into 1-lb portions and froze it. Their ground beef is USA raised; no chemicals, additives or water added during processing; no hormones or antibiotics; grain-fed cattle. You must purchase your beef in 30-lb increments, I believe. Remember, they're packaged in 10-lb chubs. You can easily share the order with friends this way. I bought 20 lbs for my family and my mom bought the other 10 lbs.
I just received the e-mail from Zaycon today informing me of the upcoming ground beef event. If you're at all interested, visit their website and register. You'll get information about the upcoming event. Locally they'll be delivering in Oregon City and Salem on April 20. They bring a refrigerated truck to one location in the city and you go there and pick up your order.
I highly recommend this company's products, based on my experience. The super lean ground beef usually sells for around $3.99/lb at Fred Meyer, and I've never found a better price on chicken breasts, even at Costco!

Today I went to Target, and here's what I got:
1 Dove Men+Care Body Wash on clearance for $1.98
1 Trial-sized Men's Dove Deodorant (free with purchase of body wash)
4 Skittles Blenders $.69 each
4 Olay Facial Wet Cleansing Cloths (30-ct)$4.99 each
Value pack Satin Care Shaving Cream (2 full-sized and 1 travel size) on clearance for $2.38
Coupons I used:
$1/1 Dove Men+Care coupon from 3/27 RP
$1/1 Dove coupon (Target coupon)
(2) $1/2 Skittles Blenders coupon (Target coupon)
(2) $.50/2 Skittles coupons
(4) $2/1 Olay Facial coupons from 3/27 SS
$1/1 Olay Facial coupon from Target Beauty booklet (came in the mail)
My OOP total was $13.34, but I received 2 $5 gift cards at the end, and I paid with a $10 gift card I had gotten previously from transferring a prescription. So, my total was $3.34 for all the stuff in the picture. The best part: my family will use all of it (my kids will love the Skittles in their Easter baskets)!
So, the answer to the question is YES! you can get useful stuff for free with coupons!
I know, it sounds crazy. With the prices of medications skyrocketing, how in the world could you make money buying them?
If you have prescriptions filled regularly, like your child's flouride for example, you can transfer those prescriptions from pharmacy to pharmacy and earn money doing it. This works best if you have good pharmacy benefits or if the prescription(s) you are taking is part of a store's $4 prescription list (like at Walmart or Target). Here's what I do:
1) Get new prescription from my doctor
2) Take that prescription to Target and use my "Free $10 Gift Card with purchase of a new or transferred prescription" coupon
3) Once my prescription has run out, I take my Target medication bottle to Fred Meyer, Rite Aid or QFC (whichever pharmacy is having a promotion like the Target one) and ask them to transfer my prescription.
4) If there is currently no promotion at another store, I will refill it at Target until I find another promotion going on. DO NOT transfer it until you have a coupon (or know of a promotion at Fred Meyer, where they don't require a coupon).
5) Continue transferring your prescription until you have had it filled at all the stores that do this promotion. Here are the ones I know of:
- Fred Meyer - $25 for each transferred prescription (through May 14). The $25 is given to you in the form of a credit on your rewards card, which may be used on any purchase of $25 or more when you use your rewards card. Make sure you mention to the pharmacy tech when you pick up your prescription that this is a transfer, and they will scan a special barcode that gives you the $25 credit.
- Target - $10 for each NEW or transferred prescription (must have coupon; can get as many gift cards as you want, as long as you have enough coupons for each prescription). This is the only pharmacy that I know of that will give you a gift card for a NEW prescription, so always start the cycle here, and transfer it from here to another pharmacy.
- Rite Aid - $25 for a transferred prescription. You will receive a $25 gift card for Rite Aid. I haven't seen one of these coupons in a while, so I'm not sure if they are participating any more. If the coupons come out, they'll be in their Sunday store ad. If you see one, use it before Fred Meyer, because the Rite Aid ones are rarer.
- Albertsons - $25 for each transferred prescription. You'll receive a $25 Albertsons gift card. These are also fairly infrequent, but totally worth it when they come around.
- QFC - $25 for each transferred prescription. I believe you can only do this one if you aren't transferring the prescription from another Kroger affiliate store (Fred Meyer, for example). The information about these will be in the QFC store ad.
I used to get all my prescriptions through the mail order pharmacy because it was easier. Now, I get everything from the retail pharmacies and transfer them as often as I can. If you have a current prescription at a pharmacy other than Fred Meyer, and it has refills available on it, try transferring it to Fred Meyer sometime before May 14 and get your credit. You can transfer as many different prescriptions as you'd like.
Buy Chinet 15 to 25-ct plates or bowls $2.50
Use in-ad coupon, making the price $1.99 ea.
Use $1.00/1 Chinet coupon (must login or register-you can print 2 per computer)
Use Safeway double (-$0.50)
Fianl price: $0.49 each
Remember, to use any in-ad coupons at Safeway your total (before coupons) must be at least $10. In this case, you could purchase 2 pkg. of plates or bowls (that's the limit on the coupon), which brings your pre-coupon price to $5, which means you must purchase at least $5 in additional products to qualify for the in-ad coupons. Check out this week's Safeway deals here to find other items to add to your purchase.
Here's an easy way to try your hand at Target coupons stacked with a manufacturer coupon.Remember to watch the register to make sure your total is going down.
I just went and did this deal at Target. My People magazine (which I'll look through for coupons & then throw away!) rang up at $4.49.
This will cost you $1.97-$1.98, including deposit.Thanks, Hip2Save
The top question on many people’s minds after watching shows like Extreme Couponing on TLC is simple: Can I experience my own extreme coupon savings without the extreme lifestyle? Is it possible to save money without spending countless hours clipping furiously? Can I save 50% on a $100 grocery cart full of healthy foods? The answer is “yes”! The best thing about couponing, is you can tailor it to fit any lifestyle, any diet and any family- seriously! This will be the first in a series of posts on HOW TO GET THE EXTREME COUPONING SAVINGS WITHOUT THE EXTREME LIFESTYLE!
