Plotting and Planning

OMG, I went to three Walmarts looking for the Instyle and People magazines but I could only find the People. It is such an awesome Money Maker when you buy both magazine at the same time.  If you have no clue what I am talking back then look at my posts from yesterday.  I did still buy the People magazine which is still like a $3 Money Maker but again buying both magazines is like an almost $20 Money Maker. (Thanks, Mel!)

Also, an update on the Buy $5+ Food Takeout or Delivery get $5 Prepaid Visa Gift Card, Shawn has confirmed that you can use a grocery store receipt and get the gift card (thanks, Shawn)!!!

Speaking of the grocery store, I noticed in my CB account that I had two $2 Vitacup rebate offers and I’m going to assume that offers be redeemed for the Money Maker or Cheap VitaCup Coffee 10 ct offer at Ralphs (thanks, Nick) which makes for a $3.01 MM!!!

A strange thing happened with CO51, last week, when I was trying to submit my receipt for the $0.25 fresh eggs.  The first time, I submitted my receipt, I’d taken four pictures and CO51 came back saying they couldn’t find the eggs on my receipt.  When I looked at the receipt on CO51 they only had one picture.

I submitted what I thought was my receipt for a second time but somehow I took they wrong receipt out of my drawer and of course, CO51 came saying they didn’t recognize any eggs and they were correct.

I submitted the correct receipt with the eggs and…they gave me a $0.25 credit for bananas or apples! 🤣 Thank you.

If you haven’t been to CVS, this week, go to your CVS account and send to card or print your CVS coupons.

On Sunday, we will be getting (1) Smart Source and (1) Retail Me Not coupon inserts inside of the newspapers.

It’s Saturday, enjoy your day!

    Just curious how the magazines are almost a $20 moneymaker? I see a few dollars, but Fetch rewards of 1,500 points is $1.50, not $15. Also, at Walmart in Colorado the People magazine was $5.99 and the Instyle magazine was $7.99. So a few dollars made, but curious if I am missing where the extra $20 is? Is this also because you can submit to Mypoints?

    Yes, you will get paid for both VitaCup offers which can be used to 3X on 5 trips by 4/26.

      Nick, thank you for the confirmation! The particular store that I visited didn’t have the $2 peelies but I still have two accounts that have the $4 digital coupons. I’ll have to check the other two nearby Ralphs during the work week bc the lines into the store are too long on the weekend.

    Mel, thank you! My bad for some reason when I look at Fetch rewards I forget how much the points are worth. I’ve updated my posts. I specifically did not mention MyPoints in this post because they didn’t update receipt & submission dates, it still shows as March 2020 and who needs that headache when so many are out of work.

      No worries! I had to check since that is a great moneymaker! Your deals are always SO good and I often never see them posted anywhere else! Thank you for this one for sure!

      Also, do you post your deals on IG? I looked for you under your blog name, but no dice. 😊

      • Ms. B. April 18, 2020, 09:53

        I don’t post deals on IG bc I am tech un-savvy. I’m @msbenjamins on IG. Make sure to follow people in your area on IG bc a lot of times they will give specific stores that have hot deals. I look for hashtags like #sandiego #sandiegocouponer #extremecouponer California is too big but in smaller states you can do #coloradocouponer #utahcoouponer #nevadacouponer especially to find deals that are store specific is your state.

          And thank you for the local area tip!
