Are you Cuckoo for Coupon Deals???

Let’s see those shopping hauls!  Since there were no RedPlum inserts in the paper today 🙁   I thought I’d make this weeks weekly giveaway even more awesome by throwing in two AMC Gold Movie Tickets ($25 value)! I got these tickets for free by using credits from this AMC Screamin Deals deal I posted; credits I couldn’t have gotten without all of you! So in order to say thanks, I thought why not give the tickets away??? Plus get a Women’s sizes S, M, L or XL and 5 SS coupon inserts from 07/17!

How to Enter:

  • Just submit a picture of any shopping trip this week  or last week, July 17-23! One picture will randomly be selected as the winner.  Photos must be 1,000 KB’s or under to upload.  Or you could post  a receipt picture if you’d like.
  • Make sure to comment on your picture– Where did you do the shopping trip at? How much did you spend and save? When was it?
  • *NEW*: if you can’t get your picture to upload because they are over 1,000 KB’s, post the url to the picture uploaded to tinypic.com!  Or Photobucket.com or any other free upload pictures web service.  Tinypic doesn’t even make you create an account, you just upload it and it gives you the url, I just did it in 20 seconds and it gave me the url: http://tinypic.com/r/2h7m0sh/7   If you do this option, make sure to still comment on where you bought stuff etc on this post with the link to the picture.
  • BONUS ENTRY: Get one extra entry if you share any unadvertised deals you score so others can score them as well!  Just leave an extra comment for that entry.

Special Ordering Grocery Items to get Cuckoo Coupon Deals

Photo Credit

So this is a little too time consuming and extreme for me, but I wanted to post about this in case there are some real go-getters out there!

Why Special Order:

You Know a Sale Will be Cuckoo: when a sale is “cuckoo” people rush to the stores and buy up all they can get.  There’s not much you can do about other people clearing the shelves, post-EC days we need to be aware that there are people out there with no common courtesy who are clearing the shelves. Don’t be part of that problem!

It’s okay to buy 3 items if they are the last three on the shelf.  That’s not clearing the shelf.  It’s not okay to fill your cart and take hundreds of items and clear the shelf when the management was prepared for many people to be able to get in on the deal.   If you want that much, you should be special ordering so regular customers and couponers can stock up as well. This is what many people’s secret on Extreme Couponing was – their stores were prepared for their transactions because they had items ready for them.

So you know a deal is great and you want to get a lot, you can special order the items to make sure you get yours.

How to Special Order:

  • Look at the sale the day it comes out.  Do you need store coupons or doublers to get the deal? If so, you may not be able to double that many coupons or your store may limit in-store coupons anyways.  Let’s say you can only purchase 3 in one transaction. You shouldn’t special order for that item and do 30 transactions or you’ll have one crabby cashier!
  • After determining the deal would work well with one or very few transactions, make sure you can get the right amount of coupons you’ll need for the deal.  Some people even dumpster dive for coupons!  However you get coupons (I get them by ordering 5 copies of the Sunday paper) make sure to be ethical and never steal inserts out of people’s papers.
  • Go to the store and talk to the freight manager.  Find out who is in charge of orders and get a great relationship with them.  It’s easiest for you to use the same person each time.  Make sure the manager knows that you are ordering the items for the current sale and ask if they will get there in time.
  • Ask what day and time they will arrive.
  • Phone the store before you go in to make sure your order has arrived.    Sometimes they won’t know and you’ll just have to go in.

CCD Readers: Which stores near you allow special ordering?

Ok guys and gals let’s do this thing! There are 6 Utah mommy bloggers competing to get the most canned food donated to the Utah Food Bank, and the mommy blogger who gets the most donations get 100 free passes to Fully Charged Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus to giveaway!

So this is kinda confusing; read it all to get the full scoop- there’s a total of 700 passes being given away plus luxury VIP pass for a Cuckoo for Coupon Deals Reader’s family!

Monday, August 8th – 6:00 -9:00 a.m.

  • The first two hundred people to come to the Energy Solutions Arena at 6:00 a.m. – 7:00 am..
  • the first two hundred people to come between 7:00 and 8:00 am..
  • AND
  • the first two hundred to come 8:00 am. – 9:00 am. and each donate 10 cans of food to the Utah food Bank will receive one free pass to the all new Fully Charged Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus playing at the EnergySolutions Arena Sept. 22-Sept. 25. (Person must be there with 10 cans of food to receive one free pass (no exceptions), one person/10 can donation = 1 free pass)

That’s 600 passes total!

There will be six different mom bloggers on location taking donations, the mom that collects the most food that morning will receive 100 passes to give to their readers. I can collect food in advance and bring it.  Only people on site donating will receive a free pass!!!

Saturday July 30th AND Saturday July 23rd:

Or come to Walmart in Orem (I’ll be parked near the entrance next to Subway in a white truck) Saturday, July 23rd from 9:15-9:45!
I will be there with a white truck in the parking lot collecting donations for the Utah Food Bank.  You need to donate at least 10 cans.   I’ll be giving away Cuckoo for Coupon Deals T-shirts to every tenth person who donates on these two days only. So bring your kids and have them donate 10 cans each to get you more chances to win a shirt.

 


This may work out great for those of you who can’t make it clear to SLC to get one of the 600 passes being given away there – or who work on Mondays and can’t make it that early.  People who donate in advance will be able to fill out an entry form.  So that way if I get the most donations, you are entered to win one of the 100 tickets!  I have a huge truck and plenty of room so all donations would be appreciated.

If you do go to SLC to donate 10 cans and get a free pass, please keep in mind that I will have  a booth there setup to have people enter to win:

Thursday, September 22nd at 11:00 a.m. at the Arena Animal Open House on 100 South between 300 west and 400 west on the southside of the arena.  – National Elephant Appreication Day!  We will be holding a VIP Animal Open House Tour and up close Elephant Seminar, Elephant Pedicure, Bath and Brunch.  This will be a fun hour long event.

So if you attend the event, make sure to drop of your donations at my booth and enter to win the VIP tickets to the Circus for you and your immediate family!
Oh and I will be handing out some Cuckoo for Coupon Deals t-shirts to winners of the hula-hoop competition going on at my booth!
So stop by and make sure to donate to my booth and enter to win some t-shirts!  Only those who donate to my booth can be in the runnings for the t-shirts 🙂

Did you see my sweet Walgreen’s Scenarios for under $5 list? It’s a great new weekly feature.  I’d love to have Rite Aid Scenarios for under $5, and CVS Scenarios for under $5 as well.  I already am working around 40 hours a week on my blog, and don’t know if I can take on another task. So I was wondering if any of you would want to help?

Requirements:

  • You must be a regular couponer who knows how to create scenerios and actually shops at those stores
  • You must follow all store coupon rules in the scenarios
  • You must be willing to do this once per week, excluding Holidays of course.
  • You must be willing to get these done on Saturdays.
  • You must use the Cuckoo for Coupon Deals Coupon Database format to list the coupons in the scenario.

I think this will take you about 1 -2 hours per week, per store.  I could have one person per store, or one person do both if they wanted.

You’d be paid weekly via paypal.  Interested? Just email deidre@cuckooforcoupondeals.com  🙂

Right now, if you buy a Coupon Clutch with the Deluxe Organization Package $49.90 (or any other order over $60) you get a FREE Cuckoo for Coupon Deals T-Shirt!

I have worked out a deal with Coupon Clutch to make this happen.  You must go through my referral link in order for you to get your free shirt. After you place your order, Coupon Clutch will send me your email info so that I can get your shirt size. Shirt sizes are women’s S, M, L, or XL.  Here are more pictures of the shirt.

I use the Coupon Clutch and I absolutely love it. I get compliments at the store all the time. And the deluxe organization package is the BEST! There are various sizes of pockets to put your coupons in, for example 3, 6, or 9 because there are various sizes of coupons! This saves me from not being able to see expiration dates and important info on larger coupons.  Here’s an old video of me showing it off, it’s hard to see but it comes with categories and is really sweet.

The Deluxe Coupon Binder & Organizer Package includes:

  • Coupon Binder
  • 8 Tabbed Dividers
  • 3 Plastic Binder Pockets
  • 11 Three Pocket Pages
  • 11 Six Pocket Pages
  • 18 Nine Pocket Pages
  • 5 Page Instruction Booklet

These polypropylene pages are acid free, archival quality that is perfect for storing coupons. This product features high clarity and strong welds. The pages fit all standard 3-ring binders and albums.

The coupon binders without the organization packages are $30, so you could get two of those as well to qualify.

*This offer is not good with any other offer or promo code.

I would just like to point out the importance of checking Wednesday mornings to see if you won. Here’s why: when I used to send out emails to people, they would go to spam and be found sometimes weeks or months later randomly. Then people would get very upset at me for not holding their prize and giving it to someone else. I’ve had people insist on me paying for prizes out of my own pocket if the sponsors had already shipped the prize to the new winner.  I am unable to do this. So, for liability reasons, I ask you check the site Wednesdays when I announce all winners! Also, on Sundays when I post the weekly coupon insert & shirt giveaway I post the winner of last weeks t-shirt & inserts on that post.


All winners are selected using Random.org.

$200 YaySave.com credit: Jill Myrick, jweezie43@gmail.com

STILL no response for the Megablocks set: Maria Kollar,  cakedec1@comcast.net

STILL no response for one of the recordable storybooks:  Diane Bucksky, dbucksky@yahoo.com

All winners must email me at deidre@CuckooForCouponDeals.com within 48 hours or forfeit their prize and a new winner will be selected. My emails were all getting sent to peoples spam folders, so from now on you need to check the site or the giveaways feed or giveaways emails list to see if you’re a winner!
