$8 OFF Toy Story 3 DVD/Blu-Ray combo – on sale today! November 2, 2010

My nearly-5-year-old and I listened to an interview with one of the writers of Toy Story 3 on NPR. I enjoyed hearing the way in which they came up with the story line, how they developed the characters, etc. What was my son’s response? “MOM! Toy Story 3 comes out on DVD on November 2nd! MOM! We HAVE to get that! Can we? Can we? Pleeeeeeease?”

Well, TODAY is THE day… THE day that Toy Story 3 comes out on DVD & Blu-Ray in the stores! Click here to head over to Disney Movie Rewards for a printable coupon for $8 OFF the Toy Story 3 DVD/Blu-Ray Combo!

If you’re not already a member, you’ll need to sign up (free and quick). (If you took advantage of the deal I posted last spring that got you free tickets to see Toy Story 3 in the theater, you’re already a member!)

Don’t have a Blu-Ray player? We don’t either. However, I’m buying the DVD/Blu-Ray combo pack because, chances are, we’ll get a Blu-Ray player in the future… AND with this $8 OFF coupon, the combo costs just $1 more than the DVD alone! (Target has the combo pack on sale right now for $24.99 and the DVD for $15.99… Making the combo pack just $16.99 + tax after the couponFind a Target near you.)

Expires: The coupon expires November 8, 2010.

Thanks, SlickDeals!

$10 OFF $25 at Office Depot this week July 12, 2010

Oh, the promise of an office supply store. You enter through their automatic doors and see the aisles and aisles of organizational opportunities! Binders! Sheet protectors! Post-its! Sharpies! Yes, I grew up with a father who instilled in me a love of office supplies. I think it started way back when he used to bring home those fabulous Marks-A-Lot permanent markers and reams of recycled printer paper (with the holes on the edges) from the office. The good old days!

Nowadays I keep my ears to the ground for great deals on office supplies. Here’s one I LOVE! Print this coupon to save $10 OFF your purchase of $25 or more at Office Depot this week! It is even good on “technology, furniture, supplies and more!”

Oh, what am I using my coupon for? Well, I’ve started my half-marathon training and have decided my poor iPhone has been tossed to the ground one too many times. I intended to use a previous coupon to buy an arm band, but missed the deadline (grr!). So, I’m off to Office Depot to try out an XtremeMac Sportwrap this week. Originally $29.99, I’ll get it for $19.99+tax with the coupon. I hope it is comfortable!

TARGET: How to double your savings! June 5, 2010

If you’re a Target shopper like I am, I have just one question: do you match up your manufacturer’s coupons and Target store coupons to (often) more than double your savings? If not, lend me your ear…

We’re about to load up the car to head to SuperTarget and I’m about to save over $27 in coupons! Before shopping, I always check the sites for printable coupons. In particular, I always make sure to check this site. Some of the coupons that print are Target store coupons, which you can often match to manufacturer’s coupons and use TWO coupons on one item (one store coupon, one manufacturer’s coupon). Having trouble with the link? Try this one.

For example, this morning I printed a $1.00 OFF Shout products coupon (Target store coupon) and I have a 75cents OFF Shout products coupon (manufacturer’s coupon) clipped in my coupon folder.  I swear by the Shout Color Catcher to keep my brights bright and my darks dark (and not let my colors bleed), so I’ll save $1.75 OFF one box of Shout Color Catcher today!

Happy shopping!
