Ask Cuckoo Readers

This time, you can buy a Pass of All Passes for both Utah and Salt Lake with one pass for all 15+ venues!  It is listed as $49.95 on their website, but you can use code 2012CUCKOO on the bottom-right side, on the Discount area, to drop the price down to $19.95!

Pretty easy.   These passes are fun because they make you get out and do more things and in general just be more active.
Click on each link to see what you get with your pass:

We removed 13 in-active stores, and added 2 new ones to the Find My Store drop-down.  We added Dollar Tree and Shopko.  We already cover Shopko’s sales, and we will add Dollar Tree full lists soon.  I wasn’t expecting so many emails for that job so I am still sorting through them all. Too many great couponers want it, so don’t be offended if you don’t get it, there are lots of people who want to do it.

This is just a reminder that today is the last day of the month-long birthday celebration for the Savings Club.  Today is the last day you can get a one-year membership for free HERE when you use the code BIRTHDAY at checkout.  After today, it will be $30 per year.

Skitzovoice, a professional beatboxer (the one on the Heineken commercial), made Cuckoo for Coupon Deals the video above which is pretty cool!

Why bother?

I know some people are annoyed that you have to enter a credit card. This is just to confirm your identity, and you can cancel at any time if you don’t want to be charged after the year is over.  Plus, before they charge you they send out a warning email. It is worth it for the free coupons. The Savings Club offers some great coupons not available on the free list.

Also, unlike other coupons on, Savings Club offer coupons last a long time.  They don’t hit their print limit as quickly as ones on the general site; they often last months so you have plenty of time to print them.

Comparisions of previous offers:

Regular Savings Club
Coupons Available: $1/2 Gerber Graduates $2/2 Gerber Graduates
$1/1 Meaty Bone Dog Snacks $1.50/1 Meaty Bone Dog Snacks
$1/5 Powerbars $1/4 Powerbars
Not available $1.50/1 Freschetta Pizza
$4/1 AmLactin Lotoin $5/1 AmLactin Lotion
$.75/1 Comet Spray $2/2 Comet Spray

Example of Previous Coupons:

You’ll know it is a Savings Club Exclusive if it appears with the amount off in red as shown above.  When new coupons arrive for the Savings Club, I’ll be sure to let you know on my site too.

I always click on skip updating Java and my redplum coupons print fine, but if you are having problems…

I was emailed by Red Plum to let you know you can fix redplum’s printing problems here and update your java and that might help.


Also, it must be something about late at night posting!  I can’t upload the redplum logo, super weird!

Photo Credit: Simplistically Sassy – “if you liked it you shoulda putta pin on it”

I know what you are thinking.


But alas, it is true!  The following recipe is 75% healthy – but if you substitute Raisins for the Chocolate Chips, it becomes 100% healthy.  First, let me start by saying remember when I posted yesterday about syran-wrapping the tops of bananas?  Well they weren’t looking to hot today, I think that was a fail!  I needed to use them up and my friend Kara runs a cooking blog and just posted about this cuckoo recipe, so I thought I’d try it out.  Now as per the bananas, I am going to try separating them and putting them in paper bags next time to keep them riper longer.

So I found this recipe that my five-year-old could make (and in fact, we just got done making some) called Banana Cookie Shots.  You can view the full details on how to make them over at Simplistically Sassy’s site.  But it only has 3 ingredients:

  1. Bananas
  2. Quick Oats
  3. Chocolate Chips

If you want you can substitute raisins for the chocolate chips or nuts, and it becomes 100% healthy ingredients!  And gluten-free.   What a yummy after-school snack.  Let me know if you try it and what you think.

P.S. Kara who runs the Simplistically Sassy site is friends with me and she is amazing – she has 6 kids with the oldest being 7 years old.   And she still has time to cook.

Thanks Kara!
