I got an email from a reader who was upset that my site had so many deals from states outside of Utah – it was clogging up her Google Reader with deals that didn’t apply to her.
So I spent all weekend working up a solution I think will benefit everyone from every state!
FIRST: Subscribe via RSS (Google Reader is RSS) or by email for deals in your state only here! Infact, you can subscribe for lite or full versions.
- Lite state subscription- Gives you every in-store deal applicable to your state.
- Full state subscription- Gives you every in-store deal applicable to your state, plus all other online deals, freebies, printable coupons and deals that are applicable nationwide. Basically, every post on my site except ones that are for a store which is not located in your state or for deals specific to other states.
- Oddly: For some reason when you subscribe the name at the top of the feed will show a category, usually a store name, at the top of the feed. Don’t worry, if you look through the feed, it is only showing your state deals. It is just listing the first of many categories which are included in the feed. So don’t worry about it; it’s the correct feed!
SECOND: Changes to which deals are shown on my home page:
To make my home page more applicable to everyone, only store deals, freebies, printable coupons, etc… which are nationwide (or close to it) will be shown. All deals on the Cuckoo Deals Map will still be there, you just need to select your state to see store deals & state/region specific deals. This is important because I am working with other bloggers towards getting deals for every state nationwide soon on the map! If you are a interested in making money posting deals for your state, email me.
Utah readers: I started posting less Utah deals because of my national readers getting bugged. But now that they can subscribe to their state deals which won’t show Utah deals, I am going to start posting more Utah deals! Utah deals will no longer show up on my home page though. To see them, either subscribe via RSS or email to Utah deals, OR just click on the Cuckoo Deals Map and on Utah select “Utah Deals” to view my infamous in-store finds at Macey’s, Fresh Market, Utah offers and more.
All other states: go to my Subscribe Via RSS or Email page and select your state’s lite or full feed!

What other features would you like to see on Cuckoo for Coupon Deals?
Go to the Swag Blog to get a 6 point swag code; remember the Summer of Swag I posted about earlier? It’s starting now. For the rest of the week, I’ll let you know when swag codes are released on my Facebook page instead of on here because that would clog up my homepage with the 5 new swag codes they are releasing each day.
I’m part of the Swag Bucks blog network, and they let me know they are going cuckoo this week. 1 in every 7 searches done from now until Friday will win the big Swag Bucks!
Also, they are releasing at least 5 swag codes each day. I will be announcing when they are released on my Facebook page. I can’t tell you the code, but I can tell you when it’s released!
How does Swag Bucks work?
This week only use code “SUMMEROFSWAG” to get 20 extra swag bucks when you sign up. I see no reason not to sign up. You sign up and search with their search engine instead of Yahoo or Google. And they are powered by Google and Ask.com so results are still good. But the difference is when you search with their site, you can randomly win swag bucks. Save them up for great prizes or paypal cash. I love swag bucks and love that I don’t have to take extra time out of my day for rewards- I just search the same amount as usual and the swag bucks pile up. I also enter in the codes they release on the Swag Bucks blog and on their Twitter page.
You can also get one swag code every day for taking their Swag Polls.
I always was annoyed with the crazy eye-overload of some people’s pages on MySpace. PageRage is a new free program that customizes your Facebook page. I really hope Facebook doesn’t become another MySpace!
It appears my site is up and running, but we are still switching hosting companies. I don’t know the exact time this will happen, hopefully during the night, I’ll keep you posted.
If you’re reading this you must be on a feed, my site is virtually down! We are upgrading servers etc… to fix this situation and I’ll be posting deals on my Facebook page until it is running quick, thanks for understanding.
Remember when I posted here about a weird Facebook freebie for the Queen of the Coast gourmet seafood and didn’t know if it was legit? Well it was, my free cans came today!
So if you didn’t do it before, become a fan of Raphael on Facebook and click on “MyContests” where you can enter to win a trip to Portugal, and there is a link to go to this page, where you can get a free can of tuna and a free can of tuna salad! OFFER IS NOW INACTIVE – it says to become a fan to be informed of when they will offer it again. If you ordered yours before they took of the form, you should still get them!
You get two choices of tuna:
- Tuna in Soybean Oil
- Tuna in Purified Water
You get 4 choices of tuna salad:
- Tuna Salad with Red Beans and Sweet Corn
- Tuna Salad with Black-Eyed Peas
- Tuna Salad with Potatoes, Carrots ‘n Peas
