Kindle freebies

Online deals


Prices on Amazon often change quickly. You need to be logged in to clip coupons, which are limit one per account and will come off just the first shipment. You can cancel subscribe & save or skip a shipment at any time. You get 5% off and free shipping with subscribe & save, which increases to 15% off if you have five subscriptions on the same day/month, or 20% off (through 11/11) if you have five + Amazon Mom with Prime — in which case your price will be even lower than shown below!



Two points earning opportunities this week at Recyclebank — learn how plastic bags get recycled and what organic really means.

Vitamin World



Trick or Treat: $4.50 for $25 at

Today 10/31 only, use code CANDY to get $25 gift certificates for just $4.25! (Note that this code should also work to reduce the price of any denomination of gift certificate, not just the $25 ones.)

  • With code CANDY, you pay just $4.25 for a $25.00 gift certificate.

If you’re new to, these are gift certificates you print out and use at the restaurant. To enter the code, add a certificate to your cart, then view your cart. In the top right is a box where you can put in the code. As always with these, read the fine print, because they work much more like coupons than gift certificates and there are minimum purchase requirements. gift certificates no longer automatically add a gratuity on redemption, so please remember to tip on what you would have paid pre-coupon.

How many papers? Week of 11/2/14

The week of 11/2/14, we’re expecting two inserts: SmartSource and Red Plum. See the full list at Coupon Previews.

  • Use this as a general guide, because coupons and values vary regionally. Sometimes our papers will not include one or more of the coupons listed, or when one area will get one $ amount on their coupons, we will get another.
  • In Chicagoland, the Chicago Tribune has the most coupons in it — even if the Sun-Times, or the DuPage Daily Herald, or the other smaller papers have the same inserts, they’re thinner. (Occasionally, the Sun-Times will contain a coupon not found in the Trib, but overall you’ll find many more in the Trib.) If you are outside Chicagoland, you will want to buy the largest-circulation paper in your area.
  • In IL-Chicagoland, you can pick up the early edition of the Sunday Chicago Tribune on Saturday morning for $1.00 at Menards or Dollar Tree.
  • Be sure to check to make sure that the inserts are in there before purchasing — since they are no longer in plastic bags, they’re falling out, not making it in, or getting swiped.
  • Check out the Mashup Mom Coupon Trading Group on Facebook if you’re looking for different coupons or have some you want to trade.

So, what looks good to me?

  • Buddig $.75/1 original, deli cuts or premium deli cuts item 8oz+ (2/28/15). This goes on sale at Jewel.
  • Carnation $.55/2 evaporated milk cans 12oz+ (12/31). Now you know Thanksgiving is coming. Goes on sale for $1.00 or less this time of year.
  • GE $1/1 reveal, energy smart, energy efficient soft white or led lighting product (12/31). Always useful to stack when Target puts out their occasional store coupons.
  • Libby’s $.75/2 pumpkin cans 15oz+ (12/31).
  • Nature Made $2/2 products (12/2). Ultra has some vitamins $2.88 through Tues.
  • Nissin $1/3 chow mein (1/4/15). They sell this at Dollar Tree.
  • Purell $1/1 8oz advanced hand sanitizer (12/28).
  • Skippy $.75/2 peanut butter or spread products 15oz+ (12/29).
  • all $1/1 product ets (12/14).
  • Dove B1G1 free advanced care deodorant or advanced series shampoo or conditioner excludes trial and M+C up to $5 (11/16).
  • Gillette $3/1 male disposable razor ets (11/30).
  • Venus/Daisy $3/1 disposable razor ets (11/30).

So, how many?

I’m not sure, how about you? I like the Skippy coupon, but was kind of expecting more baking coupons the first week of November so hopefully they’ll surprise us.
