Don’t miss the Procter & Gamble coupon circular that came out in the AJC last Sunday with $85 in coupons. Combine these coupons with Procter & Gamble sales and promotions at many stores this week. For example, Kmart has a promotion that gives you a $10 reward coupon when you spend $30 on participating P&G products. If you shop at a Kmart store that doubles coupons, you’ll save even more. Check with your store to learn more about its specific coupon policy.
Binders, folders, storage: Take advantage of $153 of organizational items that are free after rewards at Staples this week. You’ll pay full price at the register, but you’ll get 100 percent of the price back in your Staples Rewards account, which works like store credit and is paid out quarterly. Items that are free after rewards are Avery heavy-duty view binders ($8.49-$32.99 each, limit four), Staples economy storage cardboard boxes (10 per pack at $15.49 each, limit two), Staples heavy-weight manila letter-size file folders (50 per box at $9.19 each, limit two), Staples letter/legal size plastic storage totes ($13.99 each, limit two) and a Staples 2013 desk pad calendar ( $5 each, limit two). If you were to get the maximum amount of free items per person, the total value would be $153 in free supplies. Also find a coupon for $5 off a $25 order on the front page of the Staples store ad. Staples also has a promotion that gives you $2 off instantly on the purchase of a new binder when you bring in an old binder to recycle.
Kellogg’s: Selected Kellogg’scereals, such as Special K and Smart Start, are on sale at Walgreens for $2.50 each when you buy two boxes. If you buy four, you will get 1,000 Balance Reward points to make your net cost $2.25 each. Use two of the $1-off-two coupons from the Dec. 9 RedPlum circular to bring your cost to $1.75 per box. To help turn that cereal into breakfast, Walgreens also has 1-gallon milk on sale for $2.99.
Cover Girl products: Find a “buy one, get one 50 percent off” sale on Cover Girl products at Kmart, Rite Aid and Walgreens. Combine that promotion with the coupon for $3 off two Cover Girl items in the Dec. 30 Procter & Gamble circular.
