You can get coupons 4 ways:

Print coupons at home
eCoupons (uploaded to your store loyalty card)
Sunday Coupon Inserts – mandatory if you want to extreme coupon!
Mailed to your house

1.  Printed Online:

How do I find printable coupons?
Next to each match-up on our site we list what coupon to use, and have  a link of where to print it from, normally one of the following 3 reputable sites:

How many times may I print each coupon?

You can print nearly all coupons two times per computer by using the back browser (the little < sign in your toolbar).  Hit the back button and then click “resend” to print the coupon a second time!  Some printable coupon sites, you have to manually go back and reselect the coupon a second time.

What does IE or FF mean? These are the 2 most recommended Web Browsers for printing coupons since you CAN’T print coupons using Google Chrome (please email me if you find a way to print from Google Chrome)

IE= Internet Explorer

When printing coupons from ( the url is different for those browsing in firefox than it is for internet explorer.  Click the link next to IE if you’re in explorer or FF if you’re in firefox.  You can’t print twice from both.

When printing from IE, letters in code should be “vi” or “wi”
A Firefox (FF) link will read “vg” or “wg” (change a IE link to Firefox by looking for the “vi” part and changing it to “vg”)
If you are using Safari on a Mac, change any of these codes to “xs”, then hit enter and you’ll be printing.

2. eCoupons:

What is an eCoupon, Loadable or Clipless coupon?
An eCoupon is an electronic coupon get online in a similar manner to a printable coupon.  Instead of printing the coupon, you load it onto your store loyalty card.  When you scan your loyalty card at the cash register, or give your phone number, you will automatically receive the savings if you’ve made a qualifying purchase.  These work at Albertson’s, Smith’s, Kroger’s, etc...full list here.

Where do I find eCoupons?
ECoupons may be loaded to your store loyalty card from the following sources:

  • UPromise – you can load coupons to Smith’s, Krogers, Albertson’s, Rite Aid, and more!

3. Coupons in the Sunday Newspaper (Coupon Inserts) – The Most Important Part To Successful Couponing!

In many of my posts, you’ll see references to use Sunday coupon inserts; look at the picture above to see what Sunday Coupon Inserts look like. Here is  an example of how I tell you which insert a coupon is in when I post a deal:

Buy Olay Lotion $2.99
Use the $1/2 Select Olay Products, exp. 11-30-10 (SS 10/31/10)
Final Price= $1.99

What does the pink coupon information in the deal above mean?

  • $1/2 = $1 off when you buy 2.
  • exp. 11-30-10 means the coupon will expire on 11-30-10 and will no longer be useable.
  • (SS 10/31/10) means a coupon came from the Smart Source insert in the Sunday paper on 10/31/10.

Inserts in the Sunday paper: SS= Smart Source, RP= Red Plum, P&G= Proctor & Gamble (once per month).  Insert coupons can be used at any store that accepts manufacturer’s coupons.  Almost all grocery and drug stores do.

How do I get the coupons?

  • Subscribe to the newspaper! In fact, we suggest you subscribe to 4-6 copies of the Sunday paper. I get 5 copies of The Daily Herold in Utah.  I have worked out a deal with them to get you the lowest rates! You’ll need multiple copies of the Sunday paper for coupon inserts!
  • Non-Utah: discounted newspaper home delivery here.
  • Order them at My Coupon Hunter;  a coupon clipping service.
  • Talk to your local convenience store to see if they’ll give their old papers to you.
  • Check coffee shops and fast food restaurants where you’re a patron.
  • Ask your friends, family, co-workers, church members if they’ll save their inserts for you.
  • Buy coupons (pay a handling fee) by purchasing coupons

4.  Mailed to your house:

    • Kraft Foods. Get access to freebies and coupon booklets when available.
    • Sign up with Mambo Sprouts to get healthy and organic coupons by mail.
    • Target coupons by mail. No one really knows the rhyme or reason Target uses to decide who gets these. But it doesn’t hurt to stop over and create a faves list.
    • Want a lot of one particular coupon? Order them at My Coupon Hunter;  a coupon clipping service.  She usually charges $.05 per coupon, but if it is a high-value coupon and you know a hot sale is coming, its worth the $.05.  Also, note that if  you know a sell is going on right now, since it can take a few days for the coupon to get to you, you might be too late. Smith’s Mega Events are usually 2 weeks long so there is plenty of time to order the coupons.
    • Order whole inserts through Coupons By DeDe

Quizno’s Meal with small sub, chips, and drink for $2.99 coupon went quick last time, so hurry and print if you want it!

Are you still trying to sort out all the “One Hot Daily Deal” sites in your brain? It’s crazy – I believe I see a new one once a week!

Here’s Deal of the Day sites I’ve found and I’ll try to break down the differences for you:

National: Groupon: Groupon covers cities nationwide.  They offer a different deal for each city.  You can sign up for email alerts to be notified each day for your specific city.  How it works is they will get a low price, say 70% off at McDonalds.  They can only get that low price if 100 people request the deal.  Once 100 people request the deal, its set in stone and you get you 70% off gift certificate for McDonald’s. If not enough people “group on” the deal, it busts and no-one gets it.  Buying in bulk is how they get their low prices.

  • Pros: You also get $10 for each friend you refer to a deal who actually does a deal; I love this aspect!  I love how they separate and give different cities different local deals.
  • Cons: Some days the deals are not hot or local – like today’s $15 for $35 at Joe’s Coffee House online.  You’d still have to pay shipping, and with coupons could easily get a better rate in-store.

Boston, Pheonix, New York, Austin, Houston, Philidelphia,  San Diego, Washington D.C., & Dallas:
Buy With Me: Works just like Grouponstrength in numbers buying.

  • Pros: Unlike Groupon, some deals can last many days.  There is one new deal a day, but old deals may still be purchased if their limits haven’t been reached.
  • Cons: You don’t get anything for referrals- you get $10 at Groupon.

Northwest USA & L.A.- Screamin’ Coupons: They have some great deals daily, a lot in Utah.

  • Pros: You also get $10 for each friend you refer to a deal who actually does a deal within 3 days; I love this just like Groupon!  I love how they separate and give different cities different local deals.  They also give 10% off all the profit they make from your purchases to the charity of your choice in your local community.
  • Cons: I’m new to Screamin’ Coupons, so I haven’t had a chance to find them yet… Today’s deal was a photography deal (super common in Utah).

Utah: City Deals: City Deals has 100’s of deals daily. Sometimes they only last one day, but others, like 50% off at Rod Works, seem to always be on City Deals site.

  • Pros: For things you actually use or need, such as local restaurants, car care, beauty, etc…
  • Cons: Usually the same deals daily

Utah County Only: Their deal today is 10 Sonic Gift Cards for $5.

  • Pros: Local. Snag One deals are usually coupons, so you don’t have to purchase anything and not end up using it.
  • Cons: New, not too many deals yet.

National: Woot: I don’t like Woot.  Woot’s deals are usually big-ticket items that I’m not looking for  – like laptops. But if you are in the market for these, check out Woot for one deal a day.

National: 1SaleADay: 1 Sale a Day’s deals are pretty cheap, I have got them before and felt they were low-quality. But they are very cheap – sometimes free, just pay a small shipping fee. 1 Sale a Day’s deals change daily.

  • Cons: You don’t get paid for friends you refer to them.  Cheaper quality products.
  • Pros: Very cheap.

National: I haven’t used it much, but it offers one hot deal that is similar to, it is not a local deal but an online deal that everyone can do.  They look like pretty good deals so I’ll watch them and let you know if there is ever a real hot one.

Walmart, Target and Amazon all do “Deals of the Day”, most of them great deals but not cuckoo deals, not worth mentioning usually.

Any I left off the list? Which is your favorite?

UPDATE: Giveaway has ended, view winner here

I know what you are thinking – why aren’t your kids posing in the picture like they normally are?!?! No excuses here, sometimes kids just aren’t in picture taking moods.

We received the Your Baby Can Read Volume 1 set from Your Baby Can about 2 months ago.  It has a complete guide on how their system works.   One part of it is to do each volume for 2 or 3 months before moving onto the next volume.

The first volume includes:

  • A DVD explaining how to use each of the following to maximize their effectiveness, and how often to do each:
  • Another DVD which shows teaches words incorporated in the flop-open book and cards.   This was my 1 year old’s favorite part of the system.   She never watches t.v., but she really liked watching the kids on this dvd and seemed interested in learning the words.
  • A book with flop-open pages with a word on one side, and when you flip the tab there’s a picture of what the word represents.   This was my 3 year old daughter’s favorite part of the system.   I believe she enjoys reading and even though it wasn’t about story lines, she just loves opening the flaps and reading with me.
  • 5 hard cards with words on both sides and tabs to pull them open.  Inside are pictures representing the words on the card. Also their is a blank card you can use erasable markers on.

The system is really for people who are good at doing repetitive things and I learned I am not one of them.  At first we were really on schedule and never missed a day.  Then a few days would go in-between sessions.  Then we’d remember and do our sessions, but hardly twice a day as we were supposed to.

If you are good at keeping schedules and make sure to do the sessions, I think you could see improvement in your child’s ability to understand written words.  My 1 year old daughter would put her arms up when the words “arms up” came on the screen.  I thought that was pretty cool.  I don’t think she was reading, but more understanding it meant to put her arms up.

My 3 year old daughter is not the type that can hold still and wander away during the DVD time.  But she came back and loved the flop-book and sliding cards and was more interested in those.  I wish I had been more diligent in doing this everyday, I am going to continue on with the system to see if she learns the words.  Right now she hasn’t yet.  She has, however, figured out that when I point at the picture of a tiger, and then point at the word tiger that the word represents the tiger.  I’ll point at the tiger and then at the word and say “what’s this word” and she says “tiger”.

Giveaway: 1 Winner Will Get the Entire Your Baby Can Read Volume 1 Set including: 1 training DVD, 1 watching DVD for kids, 1 flap book, and 6 slide cards.
