Join Pinecone Research!

I belong to a lot of different survey/research panel companies, but Pinecone Research is my absolute favorite. The only way that you can “sign on” with them is if you find an active banner link or when they have open hiring periods for certain demographics.

They pay $3 per survey (it used to be $5, but $3 isn’t bad), and they also have product tests. You can choose payment via Paypal or a check.

I love working with them! The surveys are quick and easy to do and the product tests are fun. They are definitely my favorite survey company.

Sign up quick….the banner links never stay active for long!

Walgreen’s deals this week

If you need cough syrup: (cold season is upon us, so you might as well stock up)

Buy 2 Robitussin, 1 Dimpetapp. They are $3.99 each this week and you get a $10 RR when you buy 3.

There is a $2/1 printable Robitussin coupon here:

There is a $2/1 printable Dimetapp coupon here:

You end up spending $5.97 but you get a $10 RR.

*If you need Ragu, Skippy peanut butter, or Bertolli, you can “roll” the $10 RR from the cough syrup into that deal. You end up spending about $5, but you get another $5 RR.

(if you have coupons from recent inserts, you will end up spending even less out of pocket)


Here are some “hot” coupons from this week’s inserts: (it will be worth buying extra papers…the .99 store sells them for .99 if you have them in your area! or get them on ebay or through a coupon clipping service)

Bird’s Eye steam fresh veggies – .35/1 – These go 10/$10 at Kroger all the time making your veggies free (if your store triples coupons) – they have some available on eBay right now. I just bought 20 for $1.75 including shipping. If you wait to get these coupons, they will be gone.
**Make sure you get the ones that say veggies or rice, not the “box” ones although those could be good, too**

Dole Salad – .50/1 – This will double at Kroger – the salad goes on sale pretty often 2/$4 making it $1 for a bag of salad

Jello Brand Pudding or Gelatin – $1/2 – free pudding or jello at Kroger

Pillsbury or Grands sweet rolls – .30/1 – will triple at Kroger – .10 rolls when they are 10/$10

Pillsbury refrigerated pizza crust – .40/1 – will double at Kroger – .20 pizza crust when they are 10/$10
(both of these coupons have January expiration dates!)

Nestle or Wonka fun size bags – $1/3 – stock up on Halloween candy

Lawry’s marinade – .50/1 – goes 10/$10 at Kroger all the time – free marinade (get them quick or you won’t be able to find them)
