Check out my Mama's new bloggy button!!

Good Morning Everyone in Bloggy Land!! I am soooo happy....Do you want to know why I am sooooo happy! Well, I'll be happy to tell you! LOL!!

It is because I have a beautiful new Button on my blog and a new widget on Entrecard!! Do you see my new button on the right side?? They were designed by Diana of Custom Blog Designs. If you are thinking of re-doing your blog, or would like to do a few little "tweaks" here and there, she is definitely your gal. I found her to be very easy to work with, even though our only communication was by e-mail, because she radiates helpfulness and eager-to-please-ness via the computer. I told her that whenever I am ready to "take the plunge" and re-do my entire blog, I am definitely having her do it!

I met the nicest gal at the small-town Walgreens next to my small-town, and I told her that I would post some info on the Coppertone deal that Wags is running this week: So, nice gal, here is the run-down on the deal-i-o:

Coppertone Products get $10 RR WYB 2
-$5 coppertone nutrashield
-$1.50 Coppertone NutraShield SS 5/10/09
-$1.50 Coppertone, any SS 5/10/09

Let me explain the above: The RR WYB 2 stands for "Register Reward When You Buy Two." So, if you purchase 2 Coppertone Products in the same transaction, you will receive a $10 Register Reward at checkout.

To make the deal even sweeter, you can print off a $5.00 coupon, good towards Coppertone NutraShield (using the link that I have provided). If you use your brower's back button, you should be able to print this coupon 2 times. Use either one or two coupons and you'll save an additional $5/$10 dollars at checkout.

The SS stands for Smart Source; these are the coupons that come in the Sunday Newspaper.

Here is the deal scenario that I would use if I had (2) coupons:

  • Purchase 2 Coppertone NutraShield @ $11.50 (I think this was the price at the small-town's Wags) = $23.00

  • Use (2) $5.00 off Coppertone NutraShield Coupons = $10.00

  • Total after coupons will be $13.00

  • Total after $10 Register Rewards will be $3.00
You use the RR in figuring out your total cost, because, basically, Walgreens is paying you to purchase the product. You are getting $10.00 back, so you minus that from your total after coupons.

Even if I didn't have coupons for the Coppertone, I still would purchase it. However, I would purchase the less expensive Coppertone product, like the $9.99 item, buy 2 of them which would equal $20.00 and get back $10.00. So, basically, you are getting one of the Coppertone products FREE, because you are getting back, in register rewards, the price of one of the Coppertone.


Love Giveaways?? I seriously do, and I had to share this one with you that I found this morning. Maygan, over at MayBeFrugal has a Free Skintimate Coupon Giveaway! going on. Hop on over there, post a comment and your e-mail address, and you are entered!

That is all for today!! I have some beautiful green beans, from my garden, that I am going to blanch and freeze, and I also work my shift, 12-3, at the local $.49/$.99 store. If you happen to be in my Small Town, come on over! :)
