Missing Update, Target News, Family Fun $3

I don't think the RefundCentsDaily blog update was delivered to everyone's email yesterday. I have reposted everything in this update that was supposed to go out yesterday. If you did get that email, I apologize. Here is new info as of Thursday morning on Michele's Updates:

If you get Red Plum inserts in the mail instead of the Sunday paper, be sure to check the RedPlum packet that came in yesterday's mail. Mine had both the 1/3 inserts.

There is a deal below to get Family Fun for $3 for a year.

The free Tide RR deal at Walgreens is causing fits. The Register Reward isn't printing as it should. Of course the checker/manager is going to tell you it didn't print because you used coupons, which isn't true. The machines are not programmed correctly. I'm guessing that not all the eligible UPCs were entered into the system to trigger the reward. If your coupon doesn't print, ask the manager to rering everything without any coupons. Chances are the Tide Register Reward will still not print, proving it had nothing to do with coupon use. Suggest in a nice voice that a gift card for the price of the Tide, or a free bottle on the spot, would be fair. As a last resort you can call the catalina company 1-888-8COUPON. Have your receipt in hand. They will mail you the coupon but it will take 6-8 weeks.

Reminder: This offer has to been done soon if you are going to use Suave Body Lotion and/or Body Wash for the four weeks required for the refund: ( purchased by 1/31/10, received by 3/15/10)

I think all Targets are 75% off today but call first if you weren't there at the crack of dawn. Some stores were 75% as early as two days ago.

It's the last day of the year. I hope you took my advice a few days ago and have already cleaned out your coupon file and pulled good Dec 31 coupons. It's also the day to get last minute refunds mailed. This is also the biggest renewal day of the year for RefundCents. If today is the end of your access, please renew asap because we process orders by hand. New Years Eve is a working holiday here. The renewal link is Thanks!

Look at each one, then at the end there will be a free Swagbuck. Right now there is a chance to print a $1 Bagel Bites coupon, a Science Diet link, some weird offers that I skipped or clicked See Next Offer at the bottom of the page. I saw about 5-6 offers before they gave me my free Swagbuck.

Free Atkins Starter Kit Coming Sunday

This announcement is coming in the SmartSource insert on 1/3. I looked on the website and called the phone number and didn't see or hear anything about a free Atkins starter kit. I'm assuming it starts Sunday:
Get a free Atkins starter Kit at or call 1-800-6ATKINS There will be a $1 and $1.50 coupon on Atkins products coming this Sunday 1/3.

Another Cheap Potato Head at KMart

Product DetailsHere's another possible cheap/free Potato Head, this one at KMart. Look for Bumblebee Transformer Potato Head marked down to $4.80 (Reg $12). Use a $2 coupon or a $5 printed coupon if you still have one. The $5 coupon is no longer available to print. These are great to stash in the gift cupboard and/or donate to ToysForTots.

Four Coupon Inserts Coming Sunday

The first Sunday of the new year is always one of the best, if not the best, coupon Sunday of the year. There will be 2 Red Plums and 2 SmartSources coming this Sunday Jan 3. Thanks to a kind reader, Carol P, we have an early look at both Red Plums. Preview of Sunday C/O's (1/3)

In looking over the list so far, these jumped out at me.

Reach single toothbrush Buy One Get One free up to $3.99 (1/31/2011)
Reach Dental Floss or any Reach Access Flosser $1 (1/31/2011)
Reach total Care dental 30 yd. Buy One Get one free up to $3.99 (1/31/2011)

First of all, they are very long dated, more than a year out. Second, they are high value, and third, Walgreens always has blow-out deals on Reach. I see more free dental stockpiles in our futures. Start planning
now how you are going to get a lot of Sunday papers. There will be a treasure trove of coupons in the 4 inserts. Also, it's time to clean out your coupon file before Dec 31. I guarantee you'll find some good ones you want to use before Friday. Those who wait until after Dec 31 always have sad moments when they find goodies that have expired.

Surprise Price Adjustment at Lowes

I had a pleasant surprise at Lowes on Christmas Eve. The story started last Wednesday Dec 23, when I stopped at Lowes to get 3 strands of lights and 1 lit garland. I chose Lowe's because all Christmas was 50% off. I took my goodies home and plugged in the first strand, which immediately shorted out. I was too tired to worry about it then, but the next day George was heading into town so I asked him to take the defective strand back and get me the same thing. He came home later with an odd look on his face, then handed me a bag with two boxes of lights and said, "I got $8 cash back". Huh?? It turns out the receipt was in the bag, and when he presented it with the bad strand, the cashier looked at it and said, "Christmas is 75% off now, so I'm going to refund you the difference on everything." She handed him some cash, and with it he was able to get 2 boxes for what I had paid for one, and he came home with $8 in overage. I don't know if it is Lowes policy to price adjust after the fact, or if we just lucked out, but it was a happy moment.

30th Anniversary Issue Deadline on Monday

TWO MORE DAYS: That's the deadline, Monday Dec 28, for articles for the 30th Anniversary RC issue. See the full explanation below. Be sure to email to both and

(Also, now that your thrilled son/daughter or grandson/granddaughter has opened the
Trio Castle, how about a picture of him/her playing with it. I'm putting together a collage. If you don't get the print issue, you will get a free copy if your Trio Castle picture is in it. You don't need to write about it if you don't want to. Please send focused pictures, thanks.)

Prizes, Fun:
The next print issue of RefundCents, Jan/Feb 2010, will be the
30th Anniversary issue!

I'm proud of the strength and longevity of RefundCents and want to make the Anniversary issue a blow-out. To do that, I need lots of help from readers, and want to reward contributors with free issues and prizes. Everyone can join in, even if you don't get the print issue. When your contribution is used, you'll get the issue and the reward. Here's what is needed:

*** TIPS & TALK letters and pictures:
Send a Tips & Talk article of at least 300 words with a clear picture. You'll receive 3! free months added to your subscription (print and/or on-line) when your article is published*. Please include a person in the picture. The choice of topics is huge. You could write about a great deal, an excellent shopping experience, how couponing has changed your life, helping charities with your stockpiles, your personal couponing/stockpiling philosophy, your history with RefundCents, tips for organizing, how your skills have improved over the years, how you've trained the next generation of couponers, your profits over the years, anything that is shopping/coupon related and of interest to fellow members.
* If there are too many articles for the Jan/Feb issue, they will be included in the March or April issue. You still get the full reward. If you are on-line only, you will be mailed the issue that contains your article.

** FRONT AND BACK cover pictures and articles
Submit a Tips & Talk article (see above). If it is chosen for the front or back cover of the 30th Anniversary issue, you get one year! added to your subscription. That's a $25 value.
Tip: Clear, colorful happy pictures are chosen for the covers. Creativity counts. Take a look at a lot of the past RC covers
here for inspiration. If you turn your camera vertically, that works for the cover. Horizontal pictures work for the back cover.


As an extra incentive because this is such an important landmark issue, we are going to have a
PRIZE DRAWING for everyone who submits an article + picture by Dec 28, 2009. There will be 15 prizes, including cash $3, $5, $8, $10, coupon wallets, deluxe coupon box, priority mailer full of coupon inserts, RC t-shirt, $10 Amazon gift certificate, 6 month renewal, etc. Odds of winning are excellent. To be in on the drawing, I have to have your article and picture in hand by Monday Dec 28. You can submit via email with a digital picture sent to both and or through the regular mail, if sending a print photo: Tips & Talk Anniversary issue, RC, Box 969, Bountiful, UT 84011.
HAVE FUN WITH THIS! I'm looking forward to your articles on all kinds of subjects. I know someone is going to come up with a perfect picture for the cover, and I know the Tips & Talk section will be the best ever in 30 years of publication.
