How Can You Have Your Own "Coupon Clipper Workshop?

Tonight was a great night for coupon shopping!!  It was extra exciting to meet up with several new "clippers" that I was lucky enough to meet Tuesday night at the Cornell Co-Op Workshop.  It was great to see new Rite Aid shoppers putting the knowledge they learned at a workshop to good use.  It was also fun to trouble shoot and answer questions.  And then there was coupon sharing! My heart skipped a beat!  That is truly the spirit of this I love- working together to SHARE and benefit our friends, neighbors, and community.

 
Tonight I was asked if I do workshops all of the time or just for special occasions.  This blogging adventure and the coupon workshops I have done to date are "Just for Fun".  I do collect a fee for holding them and have no intention of charging for them.  Maybe I will re-think that in the future but for now, this is a hobby. 
  • I can arrange a workshop for your community group or organization.
  • Sometimes I do raffle off a large basket of goodies for a donation ($2-$5) with the revenue or a % of the collection going to a charity or organization (usually the host group or charity of choice for the host).
  • I DO NOT do personal shopping (and will not consider it) but you are more than welcome to come shopping with me and my coupon clipping friends. 
  • I would be glad to answer ?s via email or on facebook ANYTIME!

Celebrating Summer with FREE Zhu Zhu Pets



I spent most of October-December trying to find the original little Zhu Zhu wonder's for Emma.  I was lucky to find them and locally they were fairly easy to get.  In October I held a blog contest/giveaway and had a great response.  I recently joined a Zhu Zhu Pet consumer panel and was on cloud 9 today when I found out that the entire new Kung Zhu line is on their way to me FOR FREE to keep. 
Here is What will arrive at my home in the next 48 hours:
  • 11 Hampsters (Stonewall, Sgt. Serge, Warrior Hampster Drakyko, Ninja Warrior Yama, Special Forces Rock-o, Special Forces Rivit, Ninja Warrior- Thorn, Ninja Warrior- Azer, (They are sending 11 total
  • 11 Sets of Hampster Body Armor (Night Raid, Ninja Armor- Shadow Jonin, Special Forces Armor- Ambush, Ninja Armor- Fire Chunin, Ninja Armor- Dark Jonin, Special Forces Armor- Dune Tracker, Special Forces Aromor Thunder Strike, Ninja Warrior Battle Armor- Thorn/Blizzard Jonin,
  • And every accessory they make; Special Forces Vehicle- Buzz Saw Tank, Special Forces Training Center Alpha, Special Forces Headquarters, Ninja Warrior Training Center, Ninja Vehicle- Samurai Scorp, Special Forces Vehicle- Rhino Tank, Y&U Ninja Warrior Turn Track Set, Special Forces Single Room, Ninja Vehicle- Spider Skull, Ninja Warrior Single Room, Kung Zhu Training wheel, Special forces Training Center Bravo, Y&U track set for Special forces, Ninja Warrior Training center- Samurai, Kung Zhu Pets elevated overpass.
Why are they sending it to me? I will be hosting a Zhu Zhu Pet play date for 11 children between the ages of 6&12.  I will be mostly inviting my nephews and children of friends.  This evening I decided to share the fun with blog readers.  I wish that I had enough to hand out to everyone, but I am limited to 10 participants.  I have decided to save two spots for a lucky blog reader.  I will accept entries into the contest tomorrow and will know the party date/time/location.  Please only enter if you can join us on the date of the party. 

Once the contest post is up, use comment options to leave a comment to be entered. I will randomly draw one prize winner using Random.org on 6/16/10 at noon.

What will the winner get? Admission for one adult and 2 male children age 6-12 (the toys are geared for this population and my nephews have requested "no girls allowed"). My thought is bring your child and they can bring a friend.  I will provide zhu zhu party games and activities that Zhu Zhu pets has included in the party pack.  The winner's group will be invited to join us for a day of Zhu Zhu crafts, snacks and will get a chance to choose their own hampster and set of armor/clothes to KEEP.

We will all have fun playing with the many zhu zhu playscapes, vehicles and hampster houses that are included in this line of toys. 

I want to be able to take pictures at the event and parents will need to grant permission for their children to have their picture or video taken at the event.  Zhu Zhu is looking to have party participants fill out a simple survey to tell the company what they liked and what they think might make Zhu Zhu's even more fun.

Please email me with questions or concerns. Carrie12929@aol.com  I think this will be tons of fun!

The Hungry Bear (I Think)

Welcome to my very first Restaurant Review. Here is the only glitch- I am not completely sure I have the name of the restaurant correct.  There is a new family style restaurant in Big Hank Plaza in Plattsburgh NY (Rt 195 Military Turnpike Extension).  I think it was called The Hungry Bear (100% certain "Bear" is in the name).  If you can find the JCEO Headstart and Henry's Pools & Spas you are in the right plaza.  Why am I endorsing this lovely new eating establishment?
  • Prices were right and portions were generous
  • It was super clean
  • Service was excellent and the place was packed
  • This is the most handicapped accessible restaurant I have seen to date
  • My heart is happy because tonight I saw the staff bend over backwards to cater to the needs and diet requirements of about 20 ARC consumers.  It is next to impossible to find a restaurant that will modify diets to meet the needs of customers with feeding and swallowing disorders (and make it look good on the plate).  These guys are top notch!  They took the time to let each of these valued patrons pay for their meal and were genuinely concerned and invested in good customer service.
Welcome to the Plattsburgh restaurant scene.  These fine folks (I have been told they all used to work at the Homestead on Tom Miller Road) deserve our business. 

(This is 100% my own opinion and I was not compensated in any way.  I was more than happy to write this for free.  I paid for our meal and left a good tip.  I look forward to our next visit.)

Dollar General (A Post for My Mother-In-Law)

Dollar General - Savings Zone

I was a little shocked when my Mother-In-Law said  "send me a link to your blog.  I'll check it out."  And here I thought she was reading every word I published.  Cathy- I hope you are reading and I know you will love this one!  Coupons, specials, and "Members Only Perks" at the Dollar Store!  Apparently there is a Dollar General in Peru, Rouses Point, and Malone.  I can't wait to hear all about the savings!

Well this was "too good to be true".  Apparently NY is not included, sorry Cathy (and everyone else)!!  Thank you to Jenna for figuring it out!

Rite Aid- New Store Policy Clarification- Print This For Your Coupon Binder!


Rite Aid is Amazing!  Here is the official response from Customer Service in regard to using Video Values Rite Aid, In Ad coupons and Regular Manufacturer Coupons.  This is great!!

"Thank you for taking the time to contact us. To answer your question, Yes

you may combine a Manufacturer Coupon with a Rite Aid Coupon with an In-Ad
coupon towards the purchase of a single item, as long as the coupons'
redemption amount does not exceed the price of the item.
Rite Aid Coupons are any coupons Rite Aid provides via our website or
through an email sent out, such as Wellness+ and Video Values.
I have also attached Rite Aid's Coupon Acceptance Policy, as this is the
same policy that was revised back in May 2009 that all stores should be
clear on."

Here is Their Official Policy:
Rite Aid – Coupon Acceptance


To Our Valued Customers:

Rite Aid gladly accepts manufacturer coupons, Rite Aid coupons and certain Internet/Print at Home coupons in all stores as detailed in these coupon acceptance guidelines:

GUIDELINES:

Multiple Coupons

 Rite Aid accepts manufacturer coupons and Rite Aid coupons for the purchase of a single item. However, no coupon’s redemption amount can ever exceed the price of the item.

 Only one manufacturer coupon is accepted for each product, unless coupled with another manufacturer coupon found in a Rite Aid circular.

 Rite Aid may accept multiple identical coupons for multiple qualifying items as long as there is sufficient stock to satisfy other customers within the store manager’s sole discretion.

 Rite Aid reserves the right to limit bulk purchases of items if the purchase will deplete our supply for other customers.

Buy One, Get One Free Coupons

 When items are featured on a Buy One, Get One Free promotion, up to two coupons can be used against the items being purchased, as long as the net price does not go below zero for the item being purchased.

 If a customer presents a Buy One Get One Free coupon for the purchase of two items that are on a Buy One Get One Free promotion; we accept the coupon, essentially making both items free.

 Be advised that the cash register will compute any sales tax due, which sales tax varies and is defined by applicable state law.

Internet/Print at Home Coupons

 Rite Aid only accepts coupons printed off the internet from manufacturer’s websites, emails and coupon websites up to a maximum of $5.00 off per item as long as the coupon redemption amount never exceeds the price of the item.

 Rite Aid coupons are not considered internet/print at home coupons, even when they are printed from an internet site or an email, and therefore these coupons only are not subject to the $5.00 limit.

Total Purchase Coupons

 From time to time, Rite Aid may feature total purchase coupons which discount the total purchase amount based upon meeting specific requirements. For example, $5 off a $25 purchase price threshold coupon.

 Any manufacturer coupons that may be presented with a total purchase coupon will be deducted after the purchase total has been determined.

 Rite Aid may accept more than one total purchase coupon as long as each total purchase coupon is used in separate transactions with each transaction meeting the minimum purchase requirements. Rite Aid reserves the right to limit the number of total purchase coupons that may be used by a customer in a single day.

Sale Items

 Rite Aid will accept coupons for an item that is on sale.

 In the event that any item’s selling price is less than the value of the coupon, Rite Aid will only accept the coupon in exchange for the selling price of the item. Coupon redemption can never exceed the selling price of an item and no cash back is ever provided in exchange for any coupons.

General

 Coupons and their face value cannot be exchanged for cash

 Competitor coupons are never accepted at Rite Aid.
