Okay so some of you want to know how I got the glade deals and other stuff... the glade thing was like GOLD- I was in Target in November some time and I needed some air fresheners- so I go to the aisle and see that if you buy 4 of them, you get a $5.00 gift card. SO I bought 4. I ended up paying 10 dollars and some change, but I got that $5.00 gift card and discovered something brilliant- inside each of my candle packages were TWO coupons- 1 for 2.50 off any Glade product and 1 for buy one get one free. SO I went back to Target with my EIGHT coupons in hand and bought 8 candle/air freshener sets... again, I doubled my coupons- now I had 16 coupons. I started saving them and stashing them away and going to Target every week or so and cashing in- and I was saving my gift cards as well. This particular deal ran through December 15th- it said it right on the little advertisement sign below the products. So I knew I had until the 15th to get as many coupons as I could. I also went to glade.com and printed a few each week. And then like I said in my previous post, last night, I used all my coups. and got all the gift cards. Get it? It did take a little while to figure out how to get my total down to $.30- I had to play around with different combinations of coupons. But it was worth it and I am proud to say I've done the majority of my Christmas shopping with these gift cards :)
If you have more questions ask! I know it gets really confusing- but once you get it figured out you can totally score big time!
OH and to answer Allisons question about 15 transactions, YES I really do back up the lines, but its all about being organized- before you get up there have your coupons stacked and ready to go- so all the cashier does is ring up your stuff, scan your coupons and move on to the next transaction. It really only took about 15 minutes or so. And I kindly turn around to the people behind me and say "Sorry, I'm doing all of these in separate transactions!" And I've never had a bad reaction- they always say "OH thanks for letting me know!" or, "That's fine! I'm not in a hurry!"
I promise- cut those coupons, search out those deals! IT IS WORTH IT!
