Thanks to the BBC girls, I finally jumped on the Monistat bandwagon. LOL...

In 1/6 inserts, there is a $4 off cpn for any Monistat or EPT product. The Monistat Chafing Relief Power-Gel is on clearance at Target. It will run between $3.xx-$4.49 depending on your target.

Why all the hype about this particular Chafing Relief Gel? Well the BBC girls are telling me that it's a good CHEAP use as a Primer for your face. Here's an article that BBC ashelee3550 found about using it as a primer...

CVS - Good Filler Pure Protein Bars

Okay... I was examining (heheh) my cvs ad today and saw that nutrition bars are on sale for 10 for $10. It includes a bunch of different brands. But the one that would be a good filler is the Pure Protein. In the Valassis 1/6 inserts there is a coupon for $1.50 off 2 bars. So you end up paying $.50 for 2 bars. You can probably get it free by hitting the money off marks depending if you have enough coupons.

$1 x 20 bars = $20 - $15 (10 mft $1.50/2 cpns) =$5 -$4 ($/$$) = $1 for 20 bars!!!

IF cvs doesn't have anymore in stock, get a raincheck in increments of 4 or 6 to save for next time to use as a filler! The cpn is good till 4/6/08 and the rainchecks dont expire.

Giant/Super Giant - cheap or free Totino's Pizza Rolls!!!

Thanks HCW for the deal!

Totino's Pizza Rolls are onsale from 1/25 to 1/31 for $2 for $4 or $1.50 each depending on your store. If you buy 5 in one transaction, they will end up taking 50% off of the 5 pizza rolls (in the ads this week). In the 1/13 inserts there are $.40/1 any totino's pizza rolls.

So this is the math using the $2 amount since most are reporting this price...

x 5
/50% off 5 boxes

use 5 cpns for $.40 off which doubles at every giant...

-.80 (.40 mft doubles)
-.80 (.40 mft doubles)
-.80 (.40 mft doubles)
-.80 (.40 mft doubles)
-.80 (.40 mft doubles)
=$1.00 for 5 boxes of totinos!!!

DeBeers Lawsuit Con't

So my GF's sister emailed me back and this is the breakdown of the debeers lawsuit pertaining to what we would get back...

Mixed Stones:

  • If value of stone less than or equal to $165 only $10.00 so no settlement check
  • If value of stone more than $165 will get $.01 and up. Settlement prorated based on the value of the stones.


  • If value of diamond less than or equal to $95 only $10.00 so no money.
  • If value of diamond more than $95 will get $.01 and up. Prorated with a cap of $640. So if the value of your purchased diamond is $2,000 and up your settlement is capped at $640.
Here's the original post I made... click here.

Diamond Class Action Lawsuit (DeBeers)

Thanks to the BBC mommies, I was made aware of this class action lawsuit against DeBeers.

To read more about this lawsuit, go here

If you are wondering if this is a legit site, it is... I checked it out on You can also check out this page on DeBeers referencing the lawsuit above.

If you are interested in the chit chat at BBC regarding this... Click here.

I'm not to sure what the entire thing entails or how much money you would get back, but I will sure keep on top of this and hope for a lot of money being returned to us! LOL.... I'm going to try and ask my girlfriends sister (small fry lawyer) if she can translate the lawsuit for us commoners! LOL

So far this is all that the BBC girls have come up with...
-if you bought a diamond (any type from any reseller) between January 1, 1994 through March 31, 2006 you will qualify for the class action lawsuit.
-Settlement funds of less than $10 will not be sent (meaning if your have a combined purchase price of $165 or less for mixed stones or $95 of less for diamond only jewerly, you need not apply).

So far we are all trying to figure out how much you can actually get back. Some say the max limit is $640 refund for a diamond purchase of $2,000 or more. Some say that you can get more and the $2,000 purchase price was just an example.

So that's all I have until I get to speak to my girlfriend and hopefully she can shed some light to us common people! LOL....

If you find out more, let me know and I'll update the post to share with all my avid readers!

I ended up getting..

I hate to see her pay full price for anything and I told her that she can't be brand specific anymore. If I get it, she has to use it. happy

Zappos Price Matching to has the "Converse Chuck Hightops for infant/kids" (black and turquiose only) marked down to $8.00. I then checked to see it they had sizes for the twins and then I checked Zappos and they had it as well.

So I called zappos and had them price matched to After a few minutes (20 minutes), the girl comes back on the line to tell me everything is good to go. I ordered 2 pairs in black.

They would have cost $57 at zappos without a price match. After the price match I paid $12 for both pairs shipped overnight! So I'm getting it on Friday! hehehe...

They are soo sooo CUTE!

CVS Scenario Week of Jan 6th

Since I haven't posted a scenario in a long long time... Decided to post my scenario for the week. It's not much but it's pretty good. You can make some money on this scenario depending on which $/$$ you use. You also need the "diet CRT" as well. If you dont have the "diet CRT" then you can use just the $5/15 or the $5/30 coupon to break even (0r close to it).

New Blog Feature...

I just added a search engine to my site (top left search box). Now if you are looking for something in particular in one of my older posts, all you have to do is type in some words and then click search. It should return the results of what you are looking for.

CVS - Viactiv Deal

Thanks to my BBC girls for this deal...

Spend $20 on these products (page 15) and get $10 ECBS back. It's the one with the tylenol and other medications...

So part of this deal is the Viactiv that is on sale for $7. In this past weeks Valassis 1 - there were two coupons for the Viactiv. One is $3 off of slides and the other one is $2 off of the soft chews.

you can do any variation of this deal but I will do the one with the $3 cpn.

-$3 mft
-$3 mft
-$3 mft
-$4 diet nutrition crt or a $5/15
=$8 or $7 OOP and get back $10 ECB!!!

If you want to you can use both $5/15 and $4 diet crt and you'll make even more money but I think I will just limit myself to one of the $/$$ cpns.

RX Coupon in Genuardi's Ad (Safeway Chain)

I saw this on Fatwallet.

Look for the coupon appearing in the CURRENT circular (confirmed at the Genuardi's chain-owned by Safeway, on front page flap) offering a $30 MY CHOICE Gift Card good at any Safeway family supermarket.I dont think it will be in any other circulars except for Genuardi's. So if you have one, just go and pick up a few of the circulars and clip the coupon out!!!! It's good til 3/31.

this is on page 3 side insert of the circular. I doubt the below coupon is meant to be printed out but just wanted to let you know it is there. If you want to check for yourself... click here

Dead Already - - $25 off of $25 order

Deal is dead already... sorry if you missed it! I didn't!!!hehehe... I ordered two pair of pants and a tank top and got it all for $10.xx!!! :) I'm happy, now I hope it ships! LOL

Saw this on slickdeals...

The coupon/promotion code: LCMAIL9

EXPIRES: January 7th, 2008

This code works multiple times, but you have to sign into a different account or don't use the returning customer feature. Some very stylish men's shirts, but the ladies will probably be happier with this code.

Others are reporting that you don't have to order $25 to get the $25 off. If you order anything less than $25 it will work!

Not Free but totally a BARGAIN!

Olevia Model 242T
42 Inch LCD
DCPI 008-09-0991

Link to TV

Marked down on clearance from $999 to $799
If you can grab a floor model it is an additional 30% off so that comes out to $560 before tax. You can also sign up for the Target credit card and get another 10% off.

So basically you get 50% off on a great tv with 3 years warranty!

I got this TV for my hubby for his birthday and I'm pretty excited. I got the floor model and added the $59 three additional year warranty. The target employees at the electronics wasn't too happy with me cause I got such a great deal. They made me wait in total over an hour to get this TV hoping I would walk away. LOL... I didn't cause I was adament about getting this TV for my hubby. He'll love playing his video games on this TV LOL...

I paid $560 or so for this 42 inch LCD TV!!! It's the floor model but with the warranty, I don't really care and Target has a 90 day return policy if anything does happen.

BTW... if you do see this TV and it's the floor model, you can get 30% off of floor models if that is the last one in stock. Don't let them tell you otherwise. Just tell them to ask the manager and then say this to them... The other targets I asked said it was 30% off on floor stock (which is the truth about target) so I'm not sure why your target would be any different... They will double check and come back and tell you that you were right. They won't be happy cause it's such a great deal but you'll have to put up with a little of their crap (which I did) but I didn't care! LOL... I got the TV in the end!

Target/Superfresh/A&P- Sobe Life Water

Target is running a promo "buy 10 sobe life water and get $5 GC"... I saw this on slickdeals and tried to do it at my target but they didn't have the $.50 peelies. :( So it was a no go for me...

Here's the deal...
At target, the sobe life waters are on sale for $1 and there are $.50 peelies on them (not my target). WYB 10, you get a $5 GC back.

10 x $1 = $10 - $5 mft cpns (10 of them) = $5 and get $5 GC back

So FREE!!!!

If you dont want to do this.. . you can also try it at Superfresh or A&P they are tripling coupons...

Some are reporting to see the $.50 coupons there as well.

Also I found $.40 cpns tearpad at CVS for the sobe life water. I also saw the peelies at CVS. So you can peel them there if you want. LOL...

You can use this at Target and pay $1 for every 10 (if you use the $.40 tearpad) or you can use it at superfresh and get overage since they are doing TRIPLE COUPONS!!!!

CVS - Sambucol January Deal

I've never tried this stuff but I saw a bunch of people talking about it on slickdeals...

Sambucol is $12.99 and you get $10 ecb back for each during the month of January. The limit is 5. If you use this stuff you know how expensive it is and this deal is pretty sweet from what I'm reading! Does anyone use this stuff?

x 4
= 51.96
-10.00 $/$$ cpn
=41.96 and get back a huge $40 ecb. this is a good way to roll your ecbs and burn them on diapers if you want. LOL...


"Sambucol® is a unique extract of black elderberry (Sambucus nigra), a fruit whose natural health-boosting properties have been recognised since the dawn of civilisation.

Elderberry Traditions
At sites in Switzerland and Italy, researchers have uncovered evidence that black elderberry may have been cultivated by prehistoric man, and there are recipes for elderberry-based medications in the records of Ancient Egypt. Historians, however, generally trace the tradition of the elderberry’s healing power back to Hippocrates, the ancient Greek known as the “father of medicine,” who described this plant as his “medicine chest” for the wide variety of ailments it seemed to cure.
Over the centuries, elderberry has been used to treat colds, flu, fever, burns, cuts, and more than 70 other maladies, from toothache to the plague. In the 17th century, John Evelyn, a British researcher, declared, “If the medicinal properties of its leaves, bark, and berries were fully known, I cannot tell what our countryman could ail for which he might not fetch a remedy [from the elderberry], either for sickness or wounds.”"

BabiesRUs 15% printable coupon & $10 giftcard coupon WYB 2 boxes of diapers...

BabiesRUs 15% printable coupon. Good thru 1-13-08.

Click for BabiesRUS coupon.

The link only lets u print one if you need more, up your number of copies b4 sending it to the printer!

Also there is a printable $10 giftcard when you buy two boxes of Pampers or Huggies value box. This one probably would be sweeter than the Target giftcard of $5 for two boxes. :)

But in my opinion, the best deal would be CVS. Use the breeze 2 monitor cpns to redeem $50 worth of free diapers would be better than spending the money to get a $10 giftcard. KWIM?
