Huggies rebates

After you’ve gotten the hang of bargain hunting and using coupons, you will soon learn how to MAKE money buying diapers 🙂

There is a company called The Caregivers Marketplace which gives $1 back for every package of Huggies diapers/Pull Ups. You do have to send in your original receipts and you have to have purchase at least 5 before you can send in for the rebate. There are lots of other products including Nature Made vitamins and Cottonelle moist wipes.

You can find out the details and register here:

If you’re doing the Huggies deal at CVS this week, don’t forget to save your receipts!

More Walmart deals

I’ve said before that I’m not a Walmart fan, but I know that there are some of you who are limited on grocery store options or who like Walmart, so I thought I’d share this link. She has matched up everyday prices of items at Walmart with coupons and lists a number of things (pet, grocery, health & beauty, pets, etc.) that are free or very cheap.

Here’s the link:

*Keep in mind that prices vary from one area to the next. I know that some of these items are more expensive in my area.

Looking ahead – CVS week of 8/24

DISCLAIMER: When I post these “look ahead” posts, it’s so that you can start planning and get coupons to match up if they are available. I only post them after I have seen ad scans on other sites, but sometimes the ads vary from market to market, so these may not be the exact ads that you get in your area. You can see the ad scans and full link on Hot Coupon World:

This actually looks like a pretty good week, which is a relief because the week of 8/17 is a SLOW week. There are tons of ECB deals. These are just the ones that stood out to me:

Free Chicken strips at Houston Chick Fil A locations

Chick Fil A is giving away FREE chicken strips for the next three days! If you visit a Houston area Chick Fil A location between 5 and 8 p.m. on 8/12-8/14, you can get three free chicken strips. They also apparently have a new dipping sauce that you can try. We haven’t actually done this yet, but from what I have read on other sites, you don’t have to bring anything special with you, but you do have to ask for it.

I really like Chick Fil A because they are very family oriented (they have family nights several times a month where they offer face painting and other fun things for the kids as well as a craft activity and Bible stories during lunch a few times a month and they are closed on Sundays, which is a rarity anymore). The kids also love the food, and they at least have some adult-oriented options.

(and if you think that “free food” is too good to believe, I found the details here:
