Last Chance to Print February Coupons

by Nicole on February 28, 2010

I usually bring you a list of coupons to print every Sunday but since this is the last day of the month I wanted to remind you to print all the coupons you think you may use because they may not be there tomorrow!

My 2 favorite places for printable coupons areCoupons.com and RedPlum.com so get busy printing!

I’ll bring you an updated list of the new March coupons on Tuesday!

February Online Offers

by Nicole on February 26, 2010

I’m afraid I don’t have good news for all of you online offer enthusiasts this month! Ideal has changed most of the offers to include referrals. 

I did find one that doesn’t require referrals.  Please make sure you read all instructions (here, here, and here) and  also read the comments left on those posts (as well as all the posts under the tag “online offers”) if this is your first offer.  Hopefully Ideal will come out with a bunch of great new offers that don’t require referrals soon!
