Blockbuster


From now until 3/31/10, when you rent one movie at Blockbuster Express you can get one FREE with the coupon code 555G13B. I wish I had one of these near me. At least I don’t think I do, I’m going to need to check because there are a few movies I’d like to see.
No membership required and it’s only $1.00 a night! So two movies for $1.00, not a bad deal at all. But if you keep it any longer, you’ll have to pay for the extra night.
Offer expires 3/31/10. To find a location near you, visit Blockbuster Express.com.

Community Project #2- how much of an effect can we have?

If you have attended one of my workshops or followed the blog for long you already know that my goal in all of this is not to hoard. My goal is to help other people and stretch my limited resources as far as I can. I want to spend less on what my family needs in order to give more to others.

I now have a massive roll of "Donated By A Coupon Clipper With Love" stickers (with the blog address).

Here is my vision. When you have a coupon for something free, no matter what it is- get it. Slap a sticker on it and pop it into the "Food Shelf"(Share with a hungry neighbor bin) on your way out of the store. Walmart, Price Chopper, and Hannaford have these bins. Other businesses may have them, but I am not sure.

We will bless a family in need by providing something they physically need (food, personal care items, cleaning supplies, etc). We can do this with very limited impact to our personal budgets. And best of all we will provide them with a tool to help them stretch their limited incomes. Imagine if you were trying to feed a family of 19 (Homage to The Duggar Family), but no matter how hard you tried your food stamps was not enough to feed your family. Now imagine them using coupons and finding $$ saving tips from "Our Blog" to make ends meet. I think we can make a huge impact in the North Country. We may not be able to employ all of the people that are losing jobs and income, but we can help them stretch their limited income and reduce stress for them in the process.

Let me know if you would like some stickers!
  1. I can dole them out at work (CVPH/SUNY)
  2. I can mail them to you.
  3. I can set some aside for you if you are attending an upcoming coupon party.
  4. I can schedule a meet up to swap coupons and stickers.

We can make a huge change!

Thank You- Operation Make Lorrie Smile- Community Project #1

A Few weeks ago I posted about Lorrie, a full time Rite Aid cashier. She really deserves the most improved cashier award of the year. I met her in March and she hated me and my coupons. Slowly, but surely she has become one of the most coupon friendly associates in the area. I cannot believe the change. I thought I would never make her tolerate me, let alone like me. She recently lost her husband and I sent out the call for all of us to try to boost her spirits. Today she smiled and thanked me. The first smile in a good 2 months. Thank you Krazy Coupon Ladies and fellow Coupon Clippers for sending cards, taking time to acknowledge her loss, and honoring her as a person. I think we are all helping to lift her spirits in our own little ways. Thank you. We are making a differance for people in our neck of the woods- one person and project at a time.

The Great KMart Debacle

Last week an amazing coupon started swirling around the blogsphere like wild fire. I did not blog about it- It looked great, but a $10 off a $20 purchase coupon that could be printed in unlimited quantities seemed too good to be true. There was an overthemoom milk coupon like it in the spring, but that one proved to be true and was honored for the rest of the year.

Many people printed the coupon and tried to use it at our local Kmart and the one in Malone. They were met with nasty cashiers, mean management staff, and horrible customer service. I think we can all admit that sometimes our coupons may not be honored for what ever reason. It stinks and usually attitudes can be adjusted with a quick call to corporate (or by providing the cashier/offender with a copy of their own corporate coupon policy). Kmart has not handled the situation well. The coupon was on their corporate web site. The coupon stated ALL Kmart stores.

People around the country were threatened, asked to leave stores, and accused of fraud. I have blasted an email to corporate and they are sending me something. I am not sure what, but they claim they will try to establish their credibility in the blog world. I strongly suggest shooting off an email to Kmart customer service via www.kmart.com to let them know how you feel about this whole debacle. I will update when my "customer appreciation" package arrives- I strongly recommend that bloggers, blog readers, and those effected by the Kmart saga unite and send a clear message. Mistakes happen. Kmart issued a coupon that did not clearly meet the conditions they wanted to set forth. The way they handled their own mistake make me want to visit consumer square and all of the other lovely options we have; Rite Aid, Target, Walgreen's, Price Chopper. how about you??

The Map...A Book Review


A few months ago I heard about a great program for bloggers that provides them with FREE books in exchange for an honest opinion review. I applied and so far it has been a fun experience. I just finished "The Map" by David Murrow. The first 100 pages were great. The book was very DaVinci Code up until that point.
Overall the author is trying to get more men to go to church. The beginning tale is exciting and enjoyable. Then the author drops a bomb (I will not elaborate as to not ruin the surprise). The rest of the book was a bit tedious and difficult to plow through. This book would make a great read for a Church (Christian) based book club. It would also make an excellent read for a man struggling to find his faith. The book centers around the gospel of Matthew and aims to show the reader a map or plan to encourage men to follow Jesus and the Map living life as he intended. I loved the beginning, but hated the rest.
This opinion is my own. I was provided with a free copy of the book in exchange for writing this review. I was not compensated in any way.
If you would like a copy of the book please email me carriescoupons (at) AOL (dot) com. I would be delighted to pass this book onto a reader.

Free Starbuck's Breakfast- May be worth a try


Ok so I have not been able to verify if Plattsburgh is participating, but I am going to give it a shot.
Starbucks locations around the country are holding Free Pastry Day tomorrow.
Stop by before 10:30 a.m. and show them this coupon and you’ll get a free Pastry of your choice when you order a hand-crafted beverage.
It’s not the best freebie out there since it requires a purchase, but it’s a fun way to make your money go a little farther at Starbucks. Let me know if you have any luck!!
