About couponwithclass

In 2007 I had surgery to put implants in my spine, a result of being hit by a city bus. When I awoke from the surgery, the pain in both of my legs was horrendous. I would find out that something went wrong during surgery, causing peripheral nerve damage, spinal embolism, and giving me what is called RSD/CRPS Causalgia in both of my legs. RSD is still something most people have never heard of, yet it is affecting more and more people from children to the elderly. When I was first diagnosed, the only person I had ever heard of having it, was Paula Abdul. She also had a spine injury which caused it. Hers from a plane crash. RSD/CRPS is a severe chronic pain disorder rated highest on the McGill Pain Index. http://tuum-est.com/MEDICALJUSTICE/McGill.html

Before RSD, I graduated from Baylor University (“Sic Em Bears”) by way of Northwestern, with a degree in Psychology and a minor in Religious Studies. I danced competitively and was a cheerleader throughout college. After graduating, I owned and ran a successful business, a Coffee House/restaurant and bar in Tulsa, Oklahoma called Gold Coast. I was even elected the “Mayor of Brookside,” the area where I lived and worked. Later I worked for the Medical Examiner and was then recruited to work with the Tulsa Police Department’s “Gray Squad,” their Cold Case Homicide Unit. I am a jewelry artist, and designed and sold jewelry both online and in stores. I collected and sold Vintage Clothing and antiques for many years. I literally went from doing everything, to being unable to do anything.

After 13 years of marriage and a difficult divorce immediately after being diagnosed, I lost everything. My home, all assets and even most of my personal possessions. It took me some time, but I began to fight, and started to live again. Only just having to live differently. I am walking, and despite dealing with persistent pain, I am beating the odds and living my life regardless. There are of course good and bad days, and some days/weeks/months, I just can’t get around much. But, I have two beautiful children, a toddler and a 14 year old, and I am starting a new life.

My little girl and shopping buddy!My little girl and shopping buddy!
Going from having everything at my disposal to losing everything, was a difficult transition. And being a single mom who has a disabling disorder, I had to do something to help with costs. After reading an article several years ago about “couponing,” I decided that I had to learn.

When I first delved into the world of couponing, I did so thinking that shows like TLC’s “Extreme Couponing” were the norm. I thought I could walk in a store with coupons, and I could walk out with a cartload of free stuff. Instead, I found that “couponers” had a bad reputation amongst store associates for being demanding and rude, and some of the practices shown on TV are actually illegal! I found stores changing their coupon policies because of the show, empty shelves whenever there was an available deal, and an empty pocketbook when I would leave a store. I realized a lot more went into it than clipping coupons from the paper.

So I started researching and asking friends who used coupons regularly. The more I questioned, the more tight lipped people became. I found that people liked to keep their savings methods a secret. I started with a “coupon bootcamp” class, and I set off on my journey to learn as much as I could. I set a goal, and decided that in the process, I would share my finds and help others get great deals along the way. I now have overstocked pantries and am able to give and donate so much to so many! It is the greatest blessing in all of this, that I can now once again help people with financial needs. Even thought I can no longer write big checks, nor attend glitzy Charity Events, the products help the costs for people tremendously.

If I can do it, anyone can! Getting RSD has changed my life in so many ways, but blessings always come from our hardest moments. My hope for this blog is to help people. Those who may be just starting out, and even those who actively coupon. To encourage and motivate people by giving tips, reviewing sites and apps, and finding ways to continually save. And doing so while couponing ethically, having integrity. and couponing with class!

HURRY! Target Beauty Box Hers $9.22 & His $4.61 & FREE SHIP, SELLS OUT FAST

 

 

 

zzz zzz1

 

HURRY!!!  These sell out FAST every time they go up, and they are UP!!!  RUN to get the best beauty box of them all, the Target Beauty Box!  Available for her and for him!!!  Plus, get them at a discount!  As always, I bought 2 boxes of the women’s, and one of the men’s, they are FANTASTIC gifts!!!  These boxes ALWAYS exceed expectation and are always worth more than the value stated.  They also come with high dollar coupons worth more than the price of the boxes.  This time the “Hers” box has 8 great items, and the “His” box has 5!

 

Here’s How:

  • Sign up for your free Topcashback account by clicking here.  It is the guaranteed highest cashback available, right now at 2.99%.
  • Once signed in, type “Target” into the search box, then click the “Get Cashback” link.  This will take you to the Target site.  You have to click through using it, or you will not receive payment.
  • Once on Target.com, type “Beauty Box” in the search, and will bring up both the “Hers” and the “His” boxes.  Add what you want to your cart.
  • Use your Red Card to pay, and receive 5% off your order.  This makes the “Hers” box only $9.50, and the “His” box only $4.75.  Shipping is FREE!!
  • Pay, and that is it.  Your cashback will automatically confirm within 7 days, making the final total only $9.22 for “Hers,” and the “His” box only $4.61!

Topcashback has become very good about making sure cashback is added, but always keep the invoice that is sent by the store you purchase from.  If for some reason it does not show after a while, simply file a “Missing Cashback Claim,” where you need to send a copy of your email confirmation, and they will take care of it.  Sometimes merchants try to pay them, so always good to keep track just in case.

 

Sign up for your free Topcashback account now for the guaranteed highest cashback on all your online purchases!

Disney Frozen Activity Table & Chairs only $17.66 from $40 TODAY ONLY

 

 

HURRY for a SUPER DEAL for your Disney Frozen fan!!  Right now at Kohl’s, the Disney Frozen Activity Table is on sale for only $29.99 from $39.99!  But, TODAY ONLY, use a 20% off character coupon code, with an additional 20% off coupon code, and a whopping 8% cashback, and get it for only $17.66!!

 

HOW TO GET THE DISNEY FROZEN ACTIVITY TABLE FOR ONLY $17.66

  • Sign up with a free Topcashback account by clicking here.
  • Type “Kohl’s” into the search box, and click “get cashback.”  This will bring you to the Kohl’s website.  You must click through using Topcashback to receive your money.
  • Once on Kohl’s, type “Disney Frozen Table” into the search box, and add it to your cart.
  • When ready to checkout, use code “KAPOW” to receive 20% off character items, and also use code “MOBILE20.”  This will bring the total to only $19.19.  It is best to purchase something else to get free shipping once you have only $25 or more, and there are lots of other great items to add.  I found the Disney Princess Aurora My First Bedtime Baby on sale for only $15.39, making it only $9.84 after coupons.  Buying both they are only $29.04, only $26.72 after cashback, and FREE SHIPPING!!

zzz1

  • Pay, and that is it!!  Topcashback will confirm your cashback within 7 days.  They have gotten really great about tracking cashback, but if it does not show after a bit, simply send a “missing cashback” claim with a copy of the email invoice that Kohl’s send you, and it will credit shortly.  Sometimes stores try to avoid paying cashback, so I always keep a record, and you can find a record under your Topcashback account as well.

With Topcashback you can cash out via Paypal, or several other banking methods.  They have the guaranteed highest cashback available, and this Holiday season have the highest cashback I have ever seen at stores like Kohl’s, Walmart, etc.

$15 Rebate With $20 Purchase at The Body Shop, Plus Additional $15!!

 

 

I know that I have been MIA, and I sincerely apologize.  I have just moved into our new home after a long ordeal with some serious health issues, and will be posting more and more!  I couldn’t let you miss one of my absolute FAVORITE deals!!  Thanks again to Swagbucks, through 12/19 get a $15 rebate when you spend $20 at The Body Shop!  That means you can get $20 in great beauty, bath, and personal care products for only $5!!  If you are wanting to spend more, there is an additional $15 rebate you can combine with a $50 in store purchase from Ibotta.  This means by combining the two offers, you can get $50 in awesome products for only $20!

It may look like it takes a bit when the instructions are written out, but it will literally take you just a few minutes in total to complete the rebates.  There is a limit of ONE offer per person/account/Visa card.  You CAN have more than one rebate per household, you just have to have an additional Swagbucks and Ibotta account for another person/family member, and a different VISA card.

If you are not familiar with Swagbucks, they are in my opinion the most important couponing and shopping site that is out there.  They not only offer all of the high dollar printable coupons available, they pay you for each one you use.  They also offer cashback, and all kinds of other ways to both save and earn money.  Their offers like these are simply amazing!!  I have received so many freebies from using Swagbucks, and a lot of it I have been paid money just to bring home!   Of course it is totally FREE to use as well!

Before shopping, make sure you also have the free Shopkick app on your smart phone.  You get paid just to walk into stores.  You can earn even more by scanning bar codes of featured products. or whenever you make a purchase. You even get paid just to look at the “Look Books” of new products and deals listed in the app.   It’s like reading a magazine and making money for it.  It adds up quickly and I get a lot of freebies from gift cards I earn!

How to receive 1500 Swagbucks ($15)  It literally takes less than a minute

  • First, sign up with a FREE account with Swagbucks.  Once signed up, click the Swagbucks logo on the top left hand corner of  the tool bar on any Swagbucks page.  Click the “Discover” link on the left by scrolling down a bit, then “Trial Pay. ” You can “Sort” by choosing “Highest Payout” to bring it up faster.
  • Next, click on The Body Shop offer, click “continue,” and enter the Visa credit card number you will use to make your purchase, along with your email address.  You will only need to enter the card number, NOT the name on your card, expiration or security code info.  It is indeed safe, and the only way to receive your rebate.  You CAN use a Visa Debit Card, I used my bank card.  Just remember the transaction HAS to be run as “Credit” as this is a deal sponsored by Visa.

zzz1

  • Shop in store at The Body Shop, and spend $20 BEFORE tax for the offer to qualify.  Once you have finished your purchase, you will “immediately”  and automatically be credited with 1500 Swagbucks which is the equivalent of $15 cash.  No need to do anything else for the Swagbucks offer.  With Swagbucks you can cash out via Paypal like cash, or with other store gift cards.

 

TO RECEIVE THE ADDITIONAL IBOTTA REBATE

  • Sign up for a free Ibotta account by clicking here.  If you’re reading this on a smart phone you can immediately download for free to your phone from the link.  If using a computer, you can download for free by simply downloading and signing in to your account using the email address you used to create it.
  • Once signed up, click the “Health and Beauty” category, and click on The Body Shop offer under the “In Store” section.  Click on the offer and “unlock it” by following the directions.
  • Simply shop IN STORE at The Body Shop and spend at least $50 pre tax to receive both the Swagbucks and Ibotta offers.  You must pay using the Visa card you registered in order to receive payment.  MAKE SURE THE CASHIER MAKES YOUR PAYMENT AS CREDIT if using a Visa debit card.  Bank cards with Visa logos will work, just have to be run as credit.
  • To receive the Ibotta rebate, after shopping, open the Ibotta app and click on The Body Shop offer from the step above.  Just follow the directions which will have you take a photo of your receipt, and that is it.  Your extra $15 rebate will be credited to your Ibotta account shortly.  You can cash out of Ibotta via Paypal or choosing store gift cards as well.

FREE Dove AND Suave Professionals Shampoo & Conditioner, plus $5.49 MONEYMAKER at Target, DOUBLE Rebates

 

 

DON’T MISS THIS DEAL!!!  I love beauty freebies, and making money off them is even better!  Get FREE Dove and Suave Professionals Shampoo and Conditioner, plus MAKE $5.49 at Target this week!!!!  If you don’t have a Target Red Card, they will still be FREE, plus a $5.14 MONEYMAKER!!

Make sure you sign up for a free SavingStar account and reserve/activate the rebate by clicking the “+” sign under it.  Once you make your purchase, just snap a photo of your receipt in the app for your rebate!

If you don’t have the paper insert coupon needed, you have time to order from Coupons and Things by DeDe clipping service. It takes 2-3 days max to receive your order from the time it is placed, and costs on average 10% of the coupon’s value. So for a $1 off coupon, you would only pay $0.10. Still a tremendous savings, and a great way to get multiples, or coupons that did not run in your region.
