Deals, deals, deals

I didn't post a Friday Fave Five or a Frugal Friday. it's been a week. BUT, here are two awesome deals I'm excited about. The key here is that these are prior purchases which happened to fall in the date range given by the manufacturers, and I saved my receipts. That is the important thing for both of these. They're already done, I just have to mail them off.

1. If you buy *one* Johnsons bath or lotion product and send them the receipt with your name and address, they will send you a free toy valued at $10. Details here. I managed to pick up 3 of them when they were on sale, and I had coupons and register rewards. I paid about $3 out of pocket for them and toilet paper and a few other things, and now I'll be getting a $10 toy. Awesome. If you don't have a baby, do it anyway, because I bet you know someone who will be having a baby shower!

2. This page features a few different rebates, but the one I'm most excited about is the SC Johnson one. If you buy 3 products from their list, fill out the form and send the receipts, they'll send you $5, and you can do it three times (sending all three in separate envelopes). It goes on through July, so you have time to get them and can just shop sales. I picked up *four* boxes of ziploc bags in two transactions at Walgreens when they were on sale, and of course I used coupons and RR. I paid $5.68 out of pocket for them, and now I'll get $5 cash back. Beautiful!

The third one I'm excited about is the Keebler toy cash one featured on the second above link, but I haven't already purchased any of those products. But you can bet I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for those sales.

Just another way to save and/or make money with your shopping!

But what if I don't want a toy?

um ... the baby bath toy? give it to me. :P

OR did you mean the kelloggs/keebler one? i think it's just a check you can use for anything, really.

I'm so discouraged on the coupon thing. Our coupons come on Saturday (it's the Sunday paper) and we got 1 insert and I pulled out 2 coupons, only one of which is something I usually use. I keep getting coupons for stuff I would use, but they don't carry at stores here. Still following along though and picking up what I can. Learning what I can for that glorious day when we move somewhere with shopping options.
