Don’t forget to get your coupons!

It’s Saturday which means that you can buy the “Sunday” paper with the coupon inserts and which also means that coupons are already available online!

The “hottest” coupon this week is the “Up to $30 off any Bayer Contour or Breeze 2 monitor” coupon.

If you’re new to all of this coupon stuff, I know what you’re probably thinking. “This lady is nuts. I don’t need that. Why would I want to pay money for those coupons? I always throw those coupons away.”

For whatever reason, these monitors are often part of ECB and RR earning deals at CVS and Walgreens. In fact, there will be a deal at Walgreens next week where you get $5 in RR if you “buy” 2 monitors. The monitors are often on sale during these deals making them free after the coupon.

This is how I got my “start” at CVS a few years ago.

So, if you’re wondering if it’s worth it to invest $10 in 10 coupons (which is about the “average” they are going for right now on ebay and through coupon clipping services – they will be hard to find and be going for MUCH more down the road as deals come up), I would say it is because you will likely be able to “make” $50 in ECBs or RR in upcoming deals.

The Coupon Clippers

Right now, The Coupon Clippers still has over 700 of these coupons available. I have ordered from them many times in the past and their turn around time is pretty quick (of course I’m in Texas and they are in Florida so part of that is probably proximity).

Some of you may be wondering why I don’t just buy 10 papers. A weekend edition of the paper in my area is $1.75. I know that you can get them for $.99-$1 at some “dollar stores” but to be honest, I wasn’t really that impressed with any of the other coupons in this week’s inserts. I get one paper delivered, and I don’t need 10 additional full inserts hanging out around my house (I’m guessing my husband wouldn’t appreciate it that much, either).

If you’re looking for ways to “use” those glucose monitors because you don’t have a need for them yourself, there are some ideas in this post here.
