Walgreens Photo Deal of the Day...

I almost forgot to post this!

Today is the last day of the Walgreens 7 days of photo deals. Today's deal is 20 - 4 x 6" prints for only $.20 total! Use code 20PRINTS when checking out to get this great deal. Choose in-store pick up to save on shipping charges. You don't have to pick them up today, just place your order today to get this awesome deal! Go here to place your order online or print this coupon and take it with you to get a roll of film developed into 5 x 7" prints in-store for only $8.99.

$.01 prints are a STEAL! I just picked up my free 8 x 10" print from yesterday and it is so cute! I love all of these cheap and free photo deals, how about you?

Insert Preview Tomorrow...

Looks like we will be getting 2 inserts on Sunday - a Smart Source and a Red Plum. Let's hope there are some great coupons to get us some free stuff!

Last Day for Kmart Super Doubles Event!

Today is the last day to get in on this round of the Kmart Super Doubles Event. During this event Kmart doubles manufacturer coupons up to $2 in value, so a $2 coupon is equal to $4. You have to sign up for the Kmart savings card to take advantage of this deal and they are only accepting 5 coupons per person per day. It may be worth it for you to stop by today and see what you can snag for cheap or free!

I haven't been by Kmart this time and don't think I'll be making it by today. I have done these events in the past and they seem tricky sometimes and you really have to watch your cashier and receipt to make sure everything goes like you planned. It is an awesome event that Kmart usually puts on a couple of times a year.
