$.31 Scoop Night tonight from 5p-10p 4/29/09
From the Baskin Robbins Website:

Join us for 31 Cent Scoop Night at Baskin-Robbins®
and help us honor America’s firefighters with a $100,000
donation to the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC)
National Junior Firefighter Program.

scoops to 31 cents*. At some locations, you may also have
an opportunity to make a donation to local fire charities.

I'd say you better get there early! Last time they had a free scoop night I took my family and the line was out the door and around the building.

earn double extra bucks on prescriptions

In the 4/26 CVS circular there is a coupon to get $2 in Extra Bucks for every prescription you get filled at CVS. You can also go to and get the coupon there. Normally you get $1 in Extra Bucks for every prescription. This offer is good through June 16, 2009.

Now if they would just come out with a transfer coupon again...

Get money for your old cell phones!

Recently I cam across a web site called I had heard about these sites that will buy back your used cell phones. I switched over to the iphone last summer and had a LG Chocolate sitting in my drawer. I looked up the model number on the website, and they offered me $25 for this cell phone! They will even send you a box if you need one. I printed a shipping label off their website, and I didn't even have to pay postage!

I deleted all my contact info and pictures off of the cell phone, then packed it up and mailed it off. I admit I was a bit skeptical whether or not I would receive any money for it. Then yesterday, about 5 weeks later, I received a check for $25! Awesome! Their website says even if they don't offer you any money for it, you can still send it to them and they will recycle it for you.

How many old cell phones do YOU have in that junk drawer?

Free Earth Day tote today at Walgreens!
Click here for a Walgreen's coupon for a FREE reusable tote, today only, 4/22/09

It also gives a 15% discount off certain items and 20% off Walgreens brand items! I think that Walgreen's brand diapers are on sale this week, and combined with the 20% off coupon would make a great deal!

Well I thought I didn't have any ECB's so I did these 3 transactions starting from scratch:

#1 Edge infused shave gel, $2.89 + tax = $3.10, received $2.89 in ECB's, PLUS a CRT that was $3.00 off any 2 hair products! Bonus!

#2 Tresemme tamer spray (2). and tresemme antifrizz cream, 3/$10 + tax = $10.73. Used 3 $1 off coupons printed online for any Tresemme product, also used $2.89 in ECB's from first transaction. Total OP =$1.41, received $5.00 ECB's from Tresemme (buy $15, get $5 ECB's)

#3 Pure Protein bars (3) which were buy 2, get 1 free; 1 diet coke. Used $5.00 in ECB's from #2, total OP = $.07!

Kmart has joined in as well!

Kmart has a new coupon out that will give you a $10 gift card for any transferred prescription. I personally do not like the Kmart store that is near my work, but hey, for $10 it might be worth a trip!
Here's the link to the coupon,%20Mar%2015th%20-%20Saturday,%20Mar%2021st&storeid=2421306 It ends 4/11, which is this Saturday, so hurry and use it!

Kmart also runs triple coupons occasionally. I have never tried that out, basically because I really just don't like the store near me.

Do you shop Kmart?

Transferring prescriptions to save money

Lately I have been transferring our family's prescriptions around to get $25 gift cards. Walgreens, Rite Aid, Target, and occasionally CVS put these offers out. You can find them on their websites, or in the Sunday paper flyers. Most limit these offers to once every 6 months. At Rite Aid if you have more than one prescription, you can get more than one gift card usually.

After you get this $25 gift card, the trick is to use it towards something you really need (like diapers) that is on sale and that you have a coupon match up. Last week I got a $15 off $75 CRT at CVS, and I used my $25 gift card to get up to that $75 level. Another trick with CVS is to use the gift card to purchase items that generate ECB's. That way you can keep getting free stuff! Same idea with Walgreen's register rewards and easy saver rebates (although I hear ESR's are being discontinued). Or use your $25 in grocery items. CVS and Walgreens run great deals on milk, snacks, sodas, soups, cereals, ect.

Some places clearly are annoyed with transferring the prescriptions. It takes more time, they have to call the other pharmacy, ect. I have found it's best to drop it off and tell them that you will be back at a later time to pick it up. It is a bit more trouble for you, but it will be worth $25! And who couldn't use an extra $25 per month!
