CVS Moneymaker on Simple Facial Starter Kit!

I love surprises. Especially coupon surprises! This is a perfect example for why I always recommend skimming the aisles (if you have a few extra minutes) because you may stumble across unadvertised deals and markdowns.

Point in case:

Simple Face Care Starter Set
Regularly $6.29, on sale for just $3.14 (50% OFF!)
Use one $2.00/1 manufacturer's coupon and one $2.00/1 CVS coupon (from mailer) = $0.86 Moneymaker!

Free Shutterfly Notecard Set - This Weekend Only!

Get 12 FREE cards this weekend from Shutterfly! Choose a set of Thank You Cards or try their new Mix & Match Stationery Set.  










Use code URWELCOME at checkout. 

I chose to create my own set because I didn't have much time and will be receiving 12 different designs (one of each). No photos, no personalization... I just selected the designs I liked most, put them in my cart and done!

If you'd like, you can add your own photos and sentiments, too, and decide whether you want four designs (three of each), 6 designs (two of each), etc. etc.

These cards are a $24.99 value and all you have to do is pay $5.99 shipping! Such a good deal!

Plus, if you've signed up for Kellogg Family Rewards, you would have recently received a personalized code for receiving a free Notepad. Last month you should have also received a personalized code for a free 8 x 8 scrapbook (hardcover) that expires at the end of August. I created a book of our recent trip to Ireland. All the items in my cart were FREE! Just had to pay shipping.

Note: I upgraded to use "storytelling" elements in my scrapbook for an additional $4.99. If you choose the standard 8 x 8 hardcover book, you'll pay just $18.97 for all the items in your cart! That's a savings of $57.48!

If nothing else, sign up for Kellogg's Family Rewards! Their emails are always packed with money-saving coupons or coupon codes (like these) for Shutterfly!
