Someone just sent me a coupon for $3 off a case of Nestle bottled water. The case cost about $3.33. So hopefully, I will have ton of water shortly. Wish me luck (so nervous that it's a fake coupon)

The points are actually really easy and quick to earn, which is nice, because usually points programs are designed to make you work. I already have more than enough to get $2 off any Kashi product, $5 off any purchase of $40 or more at Sprouts, or something else, and I just clicked a quick few offers because it's late and I need to get off the computer. I also found a site that does match-ups for coupons at stores like Trader Joe's and Whole Foods.
Thanks for this link!
You're welcome, Scrills!

Crossing my fingers that that Nestle coupon you got was legit.

You can use it over a pork roast in the slow cooker to make pulled pork BBQ with.

If someone can get me coupons for Trader Joe's apple-banana crushers, juice boxes, and those yogurts in a tube, my spoiled child will appreciate it - TIA!

Actually the Dr Pepper and the nestle coupons are fake. Most coupons that are worth more than 75% of the price are fake

Edited to add - we use couponinformation.com There's a list of fraudulent coupons currently circulating.

No. You can't use coupons for Trader Joe's private labelled items. If you bring in an appropriate Kashi coupon and buy it at Trader Joe's, you can use that.

People being in fraudulent or expired coupons all the time. I have to laugh when people bring in Giant Eagle coupons with their logos folded over and then expect us to honor them.

I was gonna say...TJ's is so ridiculously cheap how could they possibly have coupons. Not to mention it just doesn't seem very TJ's-esque.

Yeah, it would be weird. The valid coupons we do get are usually for Tom's toothpaste or a Kashi cereal. We don't do sales or coupons. It's easier to just keep base level prices low. If something is on sale, it's being discontinued or we over ordered, like the pumpkin bites and pumpkin souffles that are $0.89 right now.

That may be in all TJs since it's a frozen product.

I was pointing out my lack of coupon use - TJ doesn't have them, the Asian markets don't have them, Aldi, PriceRite, ShopRite and farmer's markets don't have them - I think!

I don't think they're cheap! Maybe it's just the amount of little packages I buy for school lunches.
