Thrifty Tips for August 9, 2012



Did you know that with many stores if you buy an item and it goes on sale shortly thereafter, you can get the difference back?  I didn't discover this until I was in my teens and my aunt would take me shopping after Christmas.  She would take me to lots of stores with our receipts and get the difference back.  With technology, there is an easy way to keep track of your purchases and changes in price.  Check out  Snap a picture of your receipt after you make a purchase.  If the price drops, will send you instructions on how to get back the difference.  Check out their website and app details at the link below.  And is free.


Don't forget to head over to to load up your loyalty card with the latest deals.  Remember that with Savingstar, your savings adds up.  After you have earned $5, you can cash in.

I have shared before how much I like My Coke Rewards and how I turn in our codes to get free magazine subscriptions.  And right now My Coke Rewards has a great reward if you enter five codes off of any participating product between 8/1 through 8/31, you can get a free 8x8 photobook from Shutterfly (the code for the album must be redeemed by 9/27 but it is a $29.99 value!).  Well recently I started eating Lean Cuisine for lunch and I discovered that they have a reward program too!  They have offered everything from aprons to gift cards.  And each code you give is worth 20 points.  Check out the details for both rewards programs at the links below.
