Steals and Deals

What a great idea from Megan, from The Corral Connection.
Fee free to show us all your steals and deals!

I have been out of the loop as far as couponing goes, lately. I think it is because of this diet we are on. All the good deals are on stuff we aren't eating at the moment. However, if I find something really good that will last for a year or so, or something that is not food, I usually get it. After all, we aren't on this diet forever, just a few months or so. Anyway, I found a great deal at Target! My husband is a HUGE coffee drinker and loves the Pikes Place blend and Christmas blend of Starbucks coffee, so I hit up this deal. I got Vanilla and Caramel for me ha.
Worth about $53 and I paid $30!
Let me break it down for you:

Starbucks Roast Ground Coffee, 12 oz $7.99, On Sale thru 12/10
Buy 3, Receive $5.00 Target Gift Card
Use $3.00/2 Starbucks Coffee from yesterday's Smartsource 12/04
And use $1.00/1 Starbucks Coffee from yesterday's Smartsource 12/04
Pay $19.97, Receive $5.00 Target Gift Card AND submit for a $5.00 Starbucks Gift Card
Final price: $3.32 each when you buy 3 (counting Starbucks gc and Target gc)

I did a second transaction doing the same thing, but used the $5 gc from before. So total, I technically got SIX bags of coffee, TWO Starbucks gift cards and TWO target gift cards. Oh and if you do more than one of these deals like me, just use the emailing submission for the Starbucks gc's and use a different address! Like for me, I used my name and our address, plus my gmail for the email address...and then for the second set I used my husband's name, dad's address and my second email (hotmail) for that one... You can only have one Starbucks card per household address.

For another deal I got my husband's Christmas present. Just in case he sees this, I will tell you all later about it. However, it's originally over $100. I got 10% off online (ended yesterday) and then found another promo code for $5 off $50 or more (or something similar)...PLUS free shipping on orders over $99 I believe... So it came to $111 (including tax). THEN I had a gift card for said place... so I only paid $56 out of pocket! SCORE. I hope my husband likes it. Although, i'll be using it too I'm sure. ;)
Have any of you found any good deals lately?


  1. Thank you for this. I have two sets of coupons. And I am so grateful. I am going to use these as gifts. I just had one question. Did you use the dollar and three dollar coupon on the same transaction.

  2. I did! because the $3 one applies to TWO coffee bags and the $1 coupon applies to ONE coffee if you buy THREE, you can use both coupons..if that makes any sense? Just use one of each and you will be ok!


Tell me anything you would like. I will still love ya no matter what. ;) I see comments as both rewarding and helpful. I want to know your thoughts!
