I had some fun shopping this morning.  I will let do a “guess what I spent & saved” on Saturday to have you guess my totals and win freebies as usual, I just wanted to post the great deals that I verified are working, so you can get them before they end next Tuesday:


Buy (10) boxes: Quaker Oatmeal, Cap’n Crunch, or Life Cereal $1 each
Use (2) $3/5 and Quaker products coupon from the Macey’s and/or Fresh Market circular ad this week (I got both of these in my mail, so I had 2 $3/5 coupons)
Final Price= $.40 each plus a catalina will print with a FREE movie ticket!These are valid at lot’s of theaters, I’m using mine at Provo Towne Center theater.

Here’s some printable coupons that would make the Quaker items free:

$1.00/1  Quaker True Delights Instant Oatmeal on Red Pum site
$1.00/1 Quaker True Delights Instant Oatmeal on Quaker site
$1/1 Quaker Instant Oatmeal or Old Fashioned Oats on Quaker site
$1/1 Quaker Instant Oatmeal or Old Fashioned Oats! (it was on page 7 for me, can only print once, thanks Utah Deal Diva!)

If you print 10 of the coupons above:

Get 10 boxes of free Quaker products + a free movie ticket (valued at $8.50) all for FREE

Other items I purchased in the buy 10, get a free movie ticket promo so I could get 2 movie tickets:

Also, Easter items are 75% off, I got that Easter Bunny cake pan my daughter is holding for $1.40; her birthday is coming up soon and she’d love a bunny cake!

I hit up Rite Aid, see the Swiffer deal I did here. And contact solution is free this week with their SCR program.

Out of 287 entries, the winner of the Clutch Coupon Binder Giveaway selected by Random.org is:

Julie, who’s email address is “possum7000@”. Her winning comment was: “I’m a subscriber too!”

In her comment #36 she said she’d like the “Turquoise and Chocolate Polka Dots Coupon Clutch Binder”. I have emailed Julie and if she doesn’t respond in 48 hours a new winner will be selected.

Thanks to all those who entered.  You can visit CouponClutch.com until April 30th with code “cuckoo” and get 10% off, plus if you select from their drop-down list that you only want the cover and not the binder, you will get an additional $5 off.

Or if you are a Spanish Fork, UT resident: you can be the first person to email me at Deidre(at)cuckooforcoupondeals.com and say you want my old red binder and you can have it FREE. View my coupon binder tutorial here (I explain how to put together a coupon binder, from clipping to sorting and categories), my old red binder is the binder I used in it.  Warning: You may just find people coming up to you asking if you run Cuckoo for Coupon Deals.  Just kidding.

Sorry I don’t have time to co-ordinate schedules and meet up to give away my old binder.  I can leave the binder at Fresh Market in Spanish Fork at Customer Service with your full name on it.  Who knows, it may just be full of baseball card holders and random coupons…

If you don’t live in Utah, Spanish Fork is tinsy-tiny no matter where someone lives Fresh Market is not out of their way! I know you were wondering. I would be.

Remember that Shopko does NOT accept printable coupons. Shopko accepts competitor’s coupons (non-home-printed). It may be easier to use a non-printed Target coupon at Shopko if it is closer to you!  Which is my case, since it is right down the road and Target is a 25 minute drive away.

In Utah, we don’t have the luxury of Albertson’s, so this past week’s Kmart Doublers event was the only coupon doubler event most of us will see all year.  As for me, I think it went well.

Some people were upset that Kmart was limiting customers to 5 coupons doubled per day.  I thought it was nice.  I didn’t have to wake up at the crack of dawn and run to the store, because it wasn’t going to be ransaked with people piling up their mini-vans with 50 boxes of freebies.   I went, got my 5 items per day – infact I went a step further and followed the rules of not using two of the same coupons per day. This way everyone got some deals, not just the first person there as soon as they opened.

Anyways, I really hope Kmart starts doing these more often.   If you enjoyed the double coupon event and want more, email Kmart at help@customerservice.kmart.com or call them 1-866-KMART-4U (1-866-562-7848) and tell them you appreciated the Kmart Double Coupon event and it got you doing more shopping there then usual or anything else you have positive to say about it.   Stores usually listen to feedback!

Sign up for a free account and every day you get an email for a great deal in your area.  If you choose to buy it, you’re only charged if enough people choose it as well (usually happens because the deal is so great).  That’s how they get such a good price, volume!!

Today’s Utah deal is a $15 gift certificate for Cucina Deli for $7!!  Its different every day from all kinds of businesses.

I went and checked the double coupon event out:

  1. All it takes is scanning your “shop your way” rewards card to have the first 5 coupons you hand the cashier doubled, up to $2.00 per coupon, per day.  You can sign up at the store if you don’t have one.
  2. You can not use 2 identical coupons (so you must mix up which products you buy).  I have heard you CAN in other states, but not in Utah.
  3. The $10 Prepaid Mastercard Rebate does not print upon checkout – you must find the rebate forms hung up in your store. Mine were on an end-aisle near Pharmacy.
  4. The rebate states $25 can’t include taxes.
  5. *The rebate doesn’t state whether or not you can use coupons before or after $25, and attempts to call the phone # on the rebate form lead to no answers.
  6. The $10 Prepaid Mastercard is 1 per household, no p.o. boxes.
  7. The $10 Prepaid Mastercard Rebate is valid on the following brands: Align, Always, Aussie, Bounty, Bounce, Braun, Camay, Cheer, Clearblue Easy, Covergirl, Crest, Dawn, Downy, Dreft, Duracell, Ear, Eukanuba, Febreeze, Fixodent, Gain, Gillette, Gleem, Head & Shoulders, Herbal Essenses, Hydrience, Iams, Infusium, Ivory, Joy, Luvs, Mr. Clean, Natural Instincts, Nice & Easy, Olay, Old Spice, Oral-B, Pampers, Pantene, Pepto-Bismal, Prilosec OTC, Pringles, Puffs, Pur, Safegaurd, Scope, Secret, Swiffer, Tampax, Tide, Vicks, Zest
