Heads up on the Physicians Formula coupon

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

Looks like Physicians Formula just caught on that PDF coupons are unlimited print, and they’re freaking out a little bit. They’ve announced on their Facebook page that they will no longer be reimbursing retailers for the $5.00 PDF from earlier this year, due to “misuse.” There’s a lot of discussion over there, should you wish to add your two cents.

So, please don’t try to use them at Target (or anywhere else) starting now — that’s not fair to the retailer, and it might be up on their “fraudulent coupon” warnings.

Free full-sized Physicians Formula eye boost — Now $5.00/1

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

This has now changed to a printable coupon for $5.00 off any Physicians Formula product.

When you register on their site and use the “secret word” EYEBOOST. It’s running really slowly right now and I’m not sure if mine actually went through or not, oh well.

(Thanks, Coupons Deals & More!)

Reader deals, 2/6/10 round 1

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

I didn’t get to reader deals last night. Only so fast I can type! 😉 So I’ll post them this morning, and do another round tonight if anything else comes in. Thanks again for all your contributions — You can always share the deals you find with other Mashup Mom readers by emailing me, commenting on the blog, posting to the forum, or posting on the Facebook Wall.

Chicago Tribune

  • In addition to the $.50/Sunday delivery code that wazsup found (0aup), Chris found that you can also “Add the autopay code (135) and you will get a $15 Target giftcard mailed to you within a few weeks.  You can’t order this online, since they only have space for one code – call customer service.  I called yesterday to add one more to my Sunday subscriptions.  Pretty soon I’ll need a wagon to lug them all in!” Call at 1-800-TRIBUNE.


  • Nicole found Physician’s Formula makeup with 75% off clearance stickers. Use $3.00/1 in the 1/24 SS.


  • Kitty found a deal on Fiber One yogurt: “There was a $1 Shortcuts coupon for Fiber One Yogurt at Dominicks which I had signed up for last week (looked for it today but it wasn’t there.)  There are tons of old mfg coupons for $1 off of Fiber One.  Turns out it was on sale for $2 (and will be until 2-24) so I got it free.” Check your Shortcuts and Cellfire because Fiber One shows up a lot — see if you have it loaded or can load it. I don’t see the Fiber One coupon on Coupons.com anymore, but Dominick’s takes expireds if you have it from last month.

Food 4 Less

  • Susan took some of the manufacturer coupons from the Jewel ad to Food 4 Less and scored good deals: “They have Kraft salad dressing for 1.25.  Use the manuf coup from Jewel ad (1.50 off) and get it for free. Goldfish crackers are $1.  Use Jewel’s manuf coupon and get 3 for $1. Ore-Ida potatoes are 2.38.  Again use Jewel’s manuf coupons to get them for 1.38 each. Kraft cheese is 2/$3.  With Jewel’s coupons get it for 2/$2.”



  • JaniceT says “Johnsonville Sausages (Brats, Italian or Smoked Links) at Meijer this week are 2/$5. Meijer Mealbox has $1 off any Johnsonville Sausage product. Combine this one of the many manufacturer coupons (1/17 SS), this should equal out to 2/$2.” Meijer Mealbox here and the easier to use generator when available here.


  • Check for makeup clearance there too. Dianne found “Target also had clearanced Physician’s Formula eye liner for $2.57 and eye makeup remover for $2.08 with $2.00 peelies made for 5 items totaling $1.38 plus tax!” There’s also $3.00/1 in the 1/24 SS. Not all Targets clearance items on the same schedule, but it’s worth a look.
  • Dianne also found another Brita deal: “I also found the Brita faucet mount marked down to $15.59. With the $5.00 MQ and the Target $3.00 Q it made the faucet mount $7.59 plus tax. That’s cheaper than buying just the filter for me!” There’s $4.00/1 in the 1/17 SS, and print the Target coupon here. You can also sign up with Brita and get $2.00 off filters.

Town & Country

  • Cindy found a great coupon booklet at Town & Country and posted on Facebook about it: “Found a coupon book today at Town and Country(NW Indiana so it may also be at ultra stores since they seem to run the same deals) Says LIVE WHOLE HEARTEDLY on it, inside are $10 worth of coupons that include $1.00 off 2 12 packs of diet coke or caffine free coke, $1.00 off 2 Swanson premium chicken breast, $1.00 2 diet coke or caffeine free bottle multi-packs,$1.00 off any 1 Nestea .5L 12 packs, $2 off 2 Peeperidge farm bread and crackers, $1.00 off 2 12 Dasani, $1.00 off 3 Prego heart smart sauce, $1.00 off 2 nestea 12 pack cans, and $1.00 off 3 campbells or chunky select healthy request. The coke q’s will work sweet at CVS this week!” CVS deal ends today, so run. :) The same Coke coupon is in the “strawberries” booklet at Jewel, too.


  • Jackie did the Ziploc Catalina at Ultra Foods and found they have a great price right now, and hers still had the $1.00/1 tearpads: “I went to Ultra today and did the ziploc catalina.  It rolls.  The bags are on sale for $1.49 so i would buy 3, use 3 $1/1 coupons bringing my total to $1.49 and out prints a $2 cat, .50mm!  Did it 3 times, without a problem.  I’m stocked up on ziplocs for awhile.  Utlra in Chicago Heights also had a cart of glade candles by the door marked down to $1.25.  Too bad i took the $3/2 printables out of my purse yesterday!!!” Again, through 2/21: Buy 3 easy zipper, double zipper, zip & steam, or big bags, get $2.00 OYNO. Look for $1.00/1 tearpads in Ultra or Woodman’s, or $1.00/2 and $.40/1 1/10 SS. Oh! Also you can send in for the SC Johnson $5.00 rebate here, if you haven’t done your three per household already.

Whole Foods

  • Jennifer found more free Oikos! “Not sure if anyone has mentioned this deal: If you like greek yogurt, Whole Foods has Oikos on sale for 5/5 and there is a $1 off any one oikos in there booklet that they have hanging around the store. FREE greek yogurt!!! (I think the sale runs through the 16th?) Previously their coupons said “one per transaction”, …but all the coupons in jan/feb booklet said “per purchase”, so you could try grabbing 5 books and using all 5 coupons….” There’s also that $1.00/1 in the 1/3 SS if you didn’t use them all already and can’t find the Whole Deal booklets. And, you can print the Whole Foods coupon from their site here.

Reader deals, 2/2/10

Hey, I forgot to post reader deals yesterday — meaning that there are more today — and thanks for sharing them. You can always share the deals you find with other Mashup Mom readers by emailing me, commenting on the blog, posting to the forum, or posting on the Facebook Wall.

Chicago Tribune

  • wazsup says on the forum: “I have a code for everyone to get the Chicago Tribune delivered for 50 cents per week for the Sunday edition!  Go to chicagotribune.com enter your zip code and the following code…. 0aup (that’s a zero)  code is good for 26 weeks so mark your calendars to do it again in 26 weeks. Also, to get 2 copies delivered, sign up 1 account in your spouse’s name and another account in yours”


  • Melissa N says that “Also, with the Meijer vitamins being BOGO.  Ester-C vitamins 500mg 60 ct vitamin c boxes are only $8.69 and with the $5/1 coupons out there.  It makes 2 boxes of vites for $3.69.” There’s $5.00/1 in the 1/3 RP, $4.00/1 in the 1/24 RP, $2.00/1 in the Feb AY, and $2.00/1 on Coupons.com.


  • Sherry commented with another diapers deal! “Not sure if anyone else has mentioned this – yesterday I printed two q’s from the target coupon site for the $1.50 off Huggies. These were store q’s so I matched them with two $3 off manuf. q’s. Total of $4.50 off each. Target has a sale this week if you buy two of the smaller boxes, you get a $5 gift card. Ended up being like 17 cents per diaper for size 4… which worked for me.” Huggies big packs are $19.99 each, and you need to buy two to get the gift card. Print the $1.50 Target coupon here. Use the $3.00/1 manufacturer coupon from the Sunday Jewel ad. You can also now print $2.00/1 Huggies in IE or in Firefox. If you have two $3.00 from the Jewel ad and two $1.50 Target coupons, you’ll pay $30.98 for two with $5.00 back, or net $26.98 for two. I don’t know how many are in a big pack, but it seems like a decent deal.
  • elguinn posts on the forum: “Yesterday I got Guesstures at Target for $11.99 regularly $24.99.  Toy’s R Us has it on sale for $16.99 in this week’s ad.  I got Target to price match the Toys R Us ad then used the $5.00 coupon on Coupons.com.  We got this game for Christmas and love it.  This will make a great gift for my nieces who love to play Charades.” Print the $5.00 coupon here.


  • Felicia remembered that Goldfish are 10/$10 through tomorrow 2/3 — use the $.75/1 printable to get them for $.25/bag! She also points out that there is a coupon in Meijer Mealbox, so you can also wait for a sale there. Oops, sorry, that’s for the bigger box. (Thanks, Ginny.)


  • Rachael found $1.50 peelies on Scalpicin, making it a money maker after RR this week — so see if these are on the boxes at your store.
  • Dianne found awesome clearance deals on Physician’s Formula makeup: “I was in Walgreen’s yesterday and found lots of Physician’s Formula on clearance. The prices I saw were $2.74, $3.49, $3.79. I was able to buy $68.00 worth of products for $1.79 (that included tax) after coupons.” Not all Walgreens clearance items at the same time, but I’ve seen a lot of clearance makeup at mine lately, and it’s worth checking. $3.00/1 Physician’s Formula in the 1/24 SS.
  • If you’d prefer Advil PM, Heather D found a $2.00 printable on their site (bottom right). Again, buy 2 at $4.49 each, get $5.00 RR back. Use two printables, pay $4.98, get $5.00 back.


Physicians Formula at Walgreens

Reader Allison emailed (actually the other day, darn email filters) to say that she found organic Physician’s Formula makeup on clearance at Walgreens as low as $4.79 (!). Even better, Phsyician’s Formula organic is on Easy Saver rebate this month (through tomorrow 4/25, so hurry!) — rebate #6 is buy $10 of organic Physician’s Formula, get $10.00 back by mail. Great time to stock up; see if your store is running the same clearance deals :).

Rebate Roundup Tuesday 3/10/09

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

Welcome back to Rebate Roundup Tuesday! I got my $69 delivery charge rebate from Home Depot yesterday — I’ll take it. Here are a few more I’ve run across over the past week. (Also check out this gigantic list of online rebates.)

Remember also that on rebates you generally get refunded the price of the item before any coupons, making some of them a money-maker.
