It’s a video contest- read below on how to submit your videos! The best video (as voted on by my readers) will win a $100 Gift Card! There will be other fun prizes too 🙂

There’s Only 2 Rules to Enter:

1.  Create a video on how to coupon at a specific store.

  • Examples: How to coupon at Kroger.  How to coupon at Dollar General.
  • Have fun! Make it informative, silly, goofy, long, short, whatever you want!  Choose any store you want – even if I have already done a video on it! Ideas: Take a shopping trip  – show us your favorite ways to score coupons at that store.  Show us your haul and describe how you rolled your deals! Do a powerpoint.  Make up a song about the store  -here’s a hilarious example!  Do whatever you want.

2. Upload the video to YouTube by Feb. 28th: you MUST select to have the video as a reply to this video.  That is how I will know it is entered into the contest.   In order to make your video a response: on the video page, you have to go to the comment box and click until you see your cursor ready to type. Then, a link appears off to the right asking to “attach a video”. You click “attach a video” and continue on to upload your video.

  • Title:  put in “How to Coupon at NAME OF STORE”
  • Description: put in “ how to extreme coupon at NAME OF STORE video.”
  • Example below:

Then it will be listed as a response to my video, and I’ll know it’s entered in the contest!  If you submit a video as a response and it’s declined, then you didn’t follow the 2 simple rules – re-submit following the rules.

Bloggers: You are welcome to enter as well!

I will post March 1-8 a form to vote on your favorite video! The votes will be done so as soon as you submit a vote you will see how many votes each video has!  I am trying to make it so you can only vote on a video once per IP address per day, so you can come back and vote each day, but only once per day to make it fair.

The picture above shows $25, but it is actually a $50 gift card

I love! I am a DealPro, and had so much fun learning more about blogging with their crew in Chicago this year. They host SaveUp annually to bring frugal bloggers together, and it was a blast. is a online coupon code portal – when you need a code for an online purchase, you can hop over to and type in the store, and if there are any codes out there, they will have it for you!

Never buy anything online without checking to see if there is a discount code first! Nearly every store I can think of is partnered with so you can find a code for anywhere.

Also, if you’ve got a shopping question, ask it on the Questions tab and one of us DealPros will help you out!

Thanks to for providing us a gift card to Kiehl’s to giveaway! has luxury skincare, haircare, and baby care items.

Nikon Coolpix S1000pj 12.1MP Digital Camera with Built-In Projector and 5x Wide-Angle Optical Vibration Reduction (VR) Zoom is $129 on Amazon – 63% off – I was shopping for a camera earlier this December and this was one of the finalists, but I didn’t get it because of the price and it doesn’t have panaramic view. But if you aren’t interested in panaramic view, it does have a built-in projector to project your HD movies that the camera also shoots, so that would be fun at parties!

Ships free with Amazon Prime

This is an AMAZING price and if you want this camera, it won’t get lower. I tracked it for over a month.

There are 4 ways to get free shipping on – read my Free Shipping Guide to learn which option is best for you to save the most on this deal:

  • Amazon Prime
  • Amazon Mom
  • Subscribe and Save
  • Free Super Saver Shipping on select orders over $25

I love swagbucks! Basically, how Swag Bucks works is you use them for your search engine. They are powered by Google and Sometimes when you search, you randomly will get a message “You’ve Won 7 Swagbucks” or some other amount. Sign up for Swagbucks here.  Right now, use code “JoinIn2010” to get 60 Swagbucks just for signing up!

Don’t forget you can get a Swagbuck every day at online polls.

Other ways to get Swagbucks:  watching videos, Special Offers, Surveys, Games, Trade-Ins, Shopping, getting any of the daily deals.

It takes 450 swags to get a $5 gift card – my brother is a typical guy doing searches for college, and gets 1 $5 gift card per month.  I get much more than that, since you can refer people and get points for referring people.  So refer your friends too!

Ask CCD Readers: Do you have any questions about Swagbucks? I’ll answer them for you!

I noticed lots of blogs are putting Print Friendly on their sites. It’s a free plugin on Print that works for blogger and wordpress sites.

The problem I have with Print Friendly: it only allows to to select items from one post and print them.

I began searching the internet for a wordpress plugin for my site that would allow people to save parts of posts to a printable list for later. I didn’t find one.

I found something better: A free program that allows you to save deals from all over the web. Just highlight with your mouse any area you want saved. It will select it and save it to your ongoing list. You can come back the next day and it will still be there! Then go to 10 more sites, add all the deals you want to do, then go to your printable list and edit/delete deals you don’t want. You can print them all on one page, or save them to a pdf.

The ability to do this for every site on the internet is pretty sweet. What is the name of this program you ask? You can select exact portions of a post you want to print with HP Web Page Printing. It is free and it works with all printers – not just HP. It only works with Internet Explorer 6, 7, & 8, so if you have Mozilla Firefox I have installed Print Friendly on my site for you.

Course none of these are as cool as the “add” to shopping list I have on all deals on the Cuckoo Deals Map, but its a close second 🙂

Nielson home scan gives you cash and prizes for scanning the items you buy grocery shopping.  This lets them know about your demographic.  This is the same Nielsen that runs the t.v. ratings so they are legit.

Even if you applied before, they may be looking for a new demographic this time around so try applying again!
