I’ll be posting all the cuckoo back to school coupons as soon as they are released.  Back to school sales are already starting so this should make for a stellar deal (use zip 03110)

$1/1 Elmer’s Glue Stick coupon

There’s also a $1 off any B2B pen pack from pilot on page 3 for me.

Please remember even if you don’t have kids in school, many schools would love your donations.  Last year I donated TONS of reams of paper I scored for free at back to school sales.

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.

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 🙂

Get in on this cuckoo Saveology deal. It’s a nationwide deal for one AMC Movie Ticket for $5 ($12 Value!). You can buy up to two of these.
It says it probably will sell out. Now these are Silver passes, which means they aren’t valid for showings of a film during the first ten days after it is first released.  And they will ship the tickets to you, takes 5-7 days!   So if you’re in  a hurry to see Harry Potter, pass on this one.

Gold passes are the ones where they are valid from the day the movie is released.
