How will you get coupons next Sunday?
Speaking of coupons, this coming Sunday is the biggest weekend of the year for coupons! 2 Smart Source and 2 Red Plum.
I'm excited and trying to figure out a way to get my papers cheaper than $2. I have some money on Walgreens gift cards I've accumulated from their easy saver rebate program that I may use. That would more or less make my papers free.
The only thing, is that I have to drive into the city to the nearest Walgreens. With gas dropping around here, it still would be worth it. My car gets great gas mileage and it would only take a gallon at $1.39.
With it being a big weekend, there will not be any papers around here in my little town unless I find out exactly when the delivery man drops them off. They always short us on papers on the big weekends and I have to drive to the city to get some anyways.
Another plus is, when I get the papers in the city they are only $1.50 a piece! Hmmmm, now that I think about it, the .50 per paper I save will pay for the gas to get up there if I buy at least 3 papers. Anything over the three and it will be a total savings over buying them here in my town out of a machine dispenser. Buy another 3 papers and that saves another $1.50 which would cover the 7th paper.
So if I purchase 6 papers in my hometown (assuming that I would even be able to get 6 papers) it would cost me $12 OOP. But if I drive to the city I could purchase 7 papers and it would only cost me $10.50 of my rebate money and about $1.50 OOP for gas.
So now I need to find out which Walgreens are open 24 hours a day and what time they get their papers. I’ll decide how many papers I’ll purchase once I find out what coupons are suppose to come out. I usually get 4 papers every week. I’m thinking I’ll get 7 next week.
How many papers are you planning on getting? Have you figured out a way to get your papers really cheap or even FREE? Does anyone know of a site that previews the coupons other than Taylortown?
