Congratulations to our winner Laurie! Check out her story below!
“I went back to the grocery store five times in a row to get $10 off my next purchase coupons. I was buying cereal that gave me $X off my purchase if I bought 5 or more boxes, plus they counted towards the $10 off my next purchase coupon. The cashiers were laughing at me on trip five, but I ended up with 50 boxes of free cereal. I kept half and donated half to the Alameda County food bank. Laugh away, cashiers.”

HI! I’m sad I missed this year’s sale. Do you still have an email list announcing the sale date? What’s the best way for me to find out about it and get it on my calendar??
Sorry you missed it. The best way to find out about it is to join our mailing list. http://bit.ly/T9email Don’t forget to add your zip code as we typically send out notices to people within the area of the sale.
My mom and I drove 50 miles to get a Cabbage Patch Kid Christmas eve.
When I was 13, my mom had me go buy some expensive toner from the Elizabeth Arden counter at the mall so that we can get another of its “free” gift bags. Does a 13 year old need toner, much less an expensive one? No! But that’s how I got my bargaining bug.
I’ve stood in line for hours with my sister just to spend time with her and to save $100. 🙂
