Remember when I told you about this earlier this week, well it’s today only!

Origin’s Facebook page says ” Bring your current skincare to any Origins counter and we’ll trade it for FREE for a full-size of one of our gentle, high-performance cleansers. Choose either: Checks and Balances™ Frothy face wash Or a Perfect World™ Antioxidant cleanser with White Tea. Value up to $20! One day only – 4/22.

Cuckoo! And, on Origins Live Chat they are telling people that Macy’s has Origins and you can do this deal at their counters too!

My Favorite Deal (also today only):

Get Ink Refills for only $1 from Walgreens with in-ad coupon from this weeks advertisement.

There are tons of other deals, none that I think are worth the time to do.  Most are for re-useable shopping bags, and I am actually over-stocked on those, plus you can get them free on the backs of Jolly Time popcorn anytime you want.  If you’re interested, view some lists of Earth Day freebies at Saving in Akron and another one at Free Sample Freak.

Crazy Over Coupons saw today that Kraft First Taste was offering a free coupon for Oscar Mayer Turkey Bacon, valued up to $4.00.  I tried to login and it said the server was too busy, so check back later today to see if you got it too!

Also, sign up if you haven’t already, this program is similar to Vocalpoint where you get to try food/products.  if you give your opinion on it.

I had another product planned to giveaway today.  A biggie. But I hated it once I reviewed it.  I mean really, really hated it.  So I had to email the company and let them know that I couldn’t host a giveaway because their product simply didn’t do what they said it would do. Before I review a product, I let all the companies I do reviews for know that if I don’t like the product, I will email them with constructive criticism and cancel the giveaway.

But this is the first time it has ever happened.  So far, I have enjoyed all the products I’ve reviewed.   Maybe I will have to be more careful now with the companies I choose to work with.  I am not sure if this has ever happened to another blogger.  I searched the internet, but found nothing.  At first I didn’t know what to do.  The lady I had been corresponding with from the company was quite pleasant and I didn’t want to hurt her feelings; she had told me previously that she was anxious to read my review.  I know business is business and she probably didn’t care, in fact maybe she was grateful I wouldn’t post a negative review, but I am always worried about what other people are feeling.  And it may sound silly to you, but I was worried they would make me ship the product back to them and I didn’t want to pay shipping and make a trip to the post office.  But luckily they never mentioned returning it, so that saved me some headache.

Now you know there are some awkward, not-so-glamorous tasks associated with being a product reviewer.  Which, by the way, was never something I intended to be when I started my blog.  I just fell into it when companies started contacted me. I have come to enjoy trying new products and writing about them, then hosting giveaways.  I get so excited when the winners email me back and I can tell by their words (and multiple “thanks!!!!”) that they are truly excited to have won.

Anyways, I wish there were more giveaways today for my Wednesday giveaways, but things don’t always work out perfectly do they?

Today in my mail I got the new Wellness + card from Rite Aid.  I didn’t apply, it was just sent because I use their Single Check Rebate system.  Anyways, you scan it at Rite Aid to earn points, and to save on members-only pricing.  Points can be accrued to get 10-20% off a purchase.  My letter that came with my card said that since I was such a highly-valued customer, all purchases from now on will get 10% off.  Hopefully all of us who shop their regularly get this discount!

Go here to activate your card once you get one in the mail, or to sign up to get a card.   Even if you have a username and password for SCR, you will have to create a new Wellness + account.

After you sign up, you will be able to print a $5/25 coupon, exp. 7/31/10, plus $50 in coupons will be emailed to you.

Today’s Groupon deal here is for Trafalga Fun Center: $8 for Three Activities (mini-golfing, go-carting, and more) and Four Arcade Tokens at Trafalga Fun Center ($16 Value).  This would be great for a cheap date night or night out with the kids.  This price is today only,  but if you get the tickets they don’t expire until 10/1/10.

I have talked about Groupon before, basically they get a deeply discounted rate and only if the amount of people that they need sign up for the deal do you get charged.

I receive emails daily from people with questions.  Here’s  a new video I made today to go along with my others store Videos that answers a lot of stacking coupon questions and printable coupon questions.

In the video I talk about coupon policies, view each stores coupon policy.

I also teach how to “stack” a manufacturer’s coupon with a store coupon.  You can read a text walk-though of how store coupons and manufacturer’s coupon work.

In the video I talk about these sources of coupons:

Rite Aid Video Values No Longer Available

I didn’t mention eCoupons: but I should have! These do “stack” with coupons from above.  You don’t have to print them, you just type in your rewards card number for your grocery store and when you swipe your card at checkout it will deduct your coupons. Learn all about eCoupons now!

One of my favorite things about being a “couponer” is I don’t have to go shopping on the weeks when I need to spend bucks elsewhere.  This was one of those weeks.  I got a few deals at Rite Aid, but nothing worth doing a “Guess What I Spent & Saved” Saturday on.

Do you have any shopping pictures you’d like to have featured? I have some great free coupons I’d love to give out today, so if you went shopping this week and took a picture, or even if you are going later today, email them along with what you spent and saved to me at: Deidre @ cuckooforcoupondeals DOT com (replace DOT with a .  – this is for spambot purposes – never type in your email address online or in a comment because spambots pick them up and email you garbage).  Then I’ll post it up to see if anyone can guess and win those coupons!

You can always show off your pictures on my Facebook Page, just click on Photos and it will allow you to upload your pictures and type in a message about them.   This is a fun way to show off your shopping trips if you don’t have time etc… to run your own deal blog 🙂

P.S. Remember my giveaway I am doing for the $50 Safeway gift card My husband has the most sent & accepted so far, but of course he doesn’t count.  So Morgan Rayl is winning so far with 20 Invitations Sent and 2 Accepted. So you aren’t too late – you could easily win the $50 Safeway Gift Card! Just go here and invite your friends to become a fan of Cuckoo For Coupon Deals on Facebook using the new Suggest This tab!
