Easy way to earn swagbucks!

My eyes were just opened up to an amazing new way to earn swagbucks. So if you go HERE and print up these coupons (which are the same ones that are on that you would be printing anyways) and use them at the store (whatever store it may be), you will earn 10 swagbucks for every coupon redeemed!!! (takes 8 - 12 wks for SBs to show up in your account, but still.)

How amazing is this? Basically I will be earning swagbucks for doing something I was doing already anyways. Double whammy!

20% off Michael's

Save 20% on you entire purchase at Michael's until Dec. 24th with this coupon. You can also use a 40% off one item coupon in the same transaction. Great for last-minute xmas gifts. They have lots of Mel and Doug toys too. I know the coupon doesn't work on storybooks, and I'm sure there are other restrictions, so make sure you read the fine print.

Mudpuppy Puzzles!

Zulily has Mudpuppy Puzzles right now. Most of them are about $5.99 - $9 (usually at least $10-$17). I bought some of these puzzles on another site for Penny for xmas and now I'm mad b/c I paid more for them, and I want the Charlie and Lola one from Zulily! haha. Anyways, these are the absolute BEST puzzles for little toddler hands and minds. I highly recommend them! Check it out!

Use code: coupcab104 for 10% off an order of $30+

Head's Up: Meijer Deal 12/15 and 12/16

Meijer is havnig a 2 day sale 12/15 - 12/16. I got an ad in my mail today (it was stuck in the middle of the junk ads with pizza coupons and stuff) that had a coupon for 10% off a general merchandise transaction of $19.97+. These ads may also be available in the store, but I don't know for sure.

What I am thinking is that you can maximize this 10% off by stacking it with coupons and sales. Here are some ideas:

U-Build Battleship game is on sale for $12 - use the $5/1 printable from Hasbro - pay $5.80 after 10% off.

It's possible Meijer could carry the travel size Hungry Hippos game and you could use the $5/1 printable for that to get it for free or very cheap. I am also going to check the price on the full size version to see if it would be decent with coupons.

If you are in the market for games, I suggest checking prices for all the games listed on the Hasbro coupons and you might score a decent deal.

There is a $3/1 printable for the 500 count Bendaroos on Last time I checked this was priced at $19.99, so it would be $15 after Q and 10% discount. Maybe we will get lucky and this will be on sale for cheaper.

There are several DVD printables on as well. Check the prices on those and see if matching Qs will bring you a good deal.
If you want the Shrek Forever DVD, there is a printable for that, as well as a rebate here.

There is also a $5 rebate available for Beauty and the Beast DVD.
And if you buy that you can get a free charm bracelet here.

Or a $5 rebate for Toy Story 3.

There's a $5/1 Tinkerbell Great Fairy Rescue coupon here.

I don't know what the Meijer prices are for these DVDs, but if you want any of them, take a look and see if it is a worthwhile deal when you combine the 10% coupon, MFQs, and rebates.

I'm sorry I can't go check the prices for these things and report back, but I won't be able to make it to Meijer until late on Thursday, and by then the sale will be almost over, so pointless to report back here.

Pop Goes Froggio $6.19!

This seems like a really cute game for pre-schoolers and I was thinking about getting it for Penny. Well the price went down to $6.19 on Amazon (20.99 list price), so it is now a steal!

$15 for $50 credit to

Eco Mom is running a deal where you can get a $10 credit to their site by posting your favorite item on Facebook. Get the scoop here.

In addition, today's daily deal is $25 for a $50 credit to the site. So if you get your $10 email in time, you will be able to buy the $50 credit for $15 OOP!

**It looks like the email had to be sent by 8pm tonight, but I sent mine at 9:20pm and still got the email code, so maybe you will still have some luck with this..

Plan rocking horse for $21!!!

The Plan Toys arabian rocking horse is $21 right now on Amazon, down from $69.99!!! Act fast if interested because Amazon prices can change quickly.

babylegs coupon code

Get $5 off any order at Babylegs. Shipping is free. There are some on the sale page that are $6, so after code, they would only cost $1!!


JC Penney 12/11

Yesterday I had to go to JC Penney to pick up a couple of things I shipped to the store. It was two gifts for my F.A.C.E. adopted family. I got good deals on these (using coupon codes with sales + free shipping to store), but I don't remember the exact details, so I'm not going to post about those now.

I also had a $10 off any $10+ order coupon that I got in the mail. So I hit up the clearance rack in the baby section and found 2 outfits (pictured above) for our baby boy. I paid 40 cents!!

For the record, they are also having an amazing sale on Carter's (tons of stuff 50% off) plus they have a ton of Carter's stuff on clearance. And surprisingly I actually thought a lot of it was cute --I am usually not a big fan of the stuff, too cutesy. The customer service rep checked for me and said that the Carter's sale is running until Sept!, so no need to rush out, but if you are looking for Carter's, maybe JCP is the place to go.

There is a printable coupon for $10 off $25 HERE. (I can't vouch for it being accepted in-store because I haven't tried it yet).

You can also sign up for JC Penny Rewards for some extra bonuses.

*Oh, it looks like a lot of the same Carter's stuff is on sale online too! Ship to store for free shipping.

Search for coupon codes. I found SHOP4LIZ for $10 off $50. I'm sure there will be more codes coming out, as they always are.

**3% cash-back from Ebates!

Discount on Organic toys and clothes for kids

Wild Dill has a coupon code for 20% off right now: holiday20

If you still happen to have the Eversave credit that was around a couple months ago, you are in luck. I was able to use my Eversave code and the coupon code together!! If you buy some sale merch, you can get an even better deal ;D

Here is a coupon for $10 off a $10 purchase at Hallmark. I don't think this is a fraudulent copy, but I know that the coupon is no longer available on Hallmark's website, so YMMV. Worst that can happen is they refuse the coupon. Worth a try I think. Others have said it has been working for them...

Misha Lulu 50% off!!!

Misha Lulu is probably my favorite clothing company of all time, for little girls. I have bought some of their pieces on Ebay, but generally the brand is way to expensive for me to afford. However, right now (until 12/11) Mini Social has Misha Lulu clothes for 50% off!!! Go take a look!

In fact, I am seeing a TON of adorable brands there today. So cute, it hurts.

$50 for $140 of Polarn O. Pyret Clothing!!

At Plum District today (another deal-a-day site), they have a deal where you pay $50 for $100 worth of Polarn O. Pyret children's (and maternity) clothing (you can buy up to 3 of these vouchers, but I'm not sure if you can use more than one on an order). This brand is usually prohibitively expensive, so I have nothing from there, but I am told time again that their quality is amazing (heirloom quality) and I think their clothing is super adorable! To make this deal even better, there is a rare coupon code for 30% off a purchase: SEEKAIPOP.

So basically you can get $140 worth of amazing quality Swedish clothing for $50 + 7.95 for shipping (shipping is free on orders over $150 if you want to really go crazy).

Kohl's codes

So lately has been having some amazing deals. I have gotten a Shark steam mop, some slippers, a pillow pet, a child's apron, and a blender all this week for fantastic prices.

They just released some new coupon codes:

NEXTORDER20 for 20% off
FREECCDEC for free shipping

The great thing about Kohl's is that you can stack coupon codes, so you can use both of these at the same time. Use the codes on something that is already on sale and voila, you have a kick-ass deal!

Tis the Season for Mailbox Goodies

I thought I might share what has been arriving in my mail the last few days. These are all freebies and cheapies that I have been pointed toward from my favorite blogs My Frugal Adventures and Coupon Clippin' Carrie. Well, aside from the Charlie and Lola DVD and the pajamas --those were my own finds.

*Box of 405 Legos: $15 (50% off) + free shipping with Prime. An Amazon daily deal.

*Cat in the Hat PJs: $8.94 - from Zulily. Original price $28! They were priced at $12.99 on the site, shipping was $5.95. I had a $10 credit from a referral! Penny has been obsessed with Cat in the Hat lately so I was excited when I saw these.
*2 Melissa and Doug puzzle boxes (4 puzzles in each). $5 each (orig. price $14 ea.) This was from a Black Friday online sale at Carter's. I also used a 20% off code which basically gave me free shipping.
*Charlie and Lola DVD: $6.49 on Amazon (over 50% off). Free shipping with Prime. I believe that price is still accurate if you are interested.
*270 address labels: $3 (price of shipping) from Vista Print. I'm actually am using them for Penny's Books and they say "This Book Property of".
*20 AA batteries for $5.94 and 28 AAA batteries for $8.24. This was a fantastic price from Amazon. Free shipping with Prime and I got 15% off for subscribe and save. Hopefully I won't be running out of batteries for a while!

And today I got my Children's Place order from the Black Friday Sale where fleece pants and pull-overs were $5 each. I used a 20% off code and free shipping to get 3 items for $12!

I think I need to bake some cookies for my mail carriers.
