***I ran to Wags to grab this deal & found that the coupon in the Healthy Savings book would NOT scan at my Walgreens. The Asst Manager said that they threw away this coupon book a month ago because the coupons were not scanning. I didn't take that excuse very well & she ended up price modifying 5 transactions for me so that I could get 10 boxes of Triaminic Thin Strips. I ended up paying NO money and making $25 in RR! Make sure you ask for the manager if you have any issues using this coupon. It is a valid Walgreens coupon. My Asst Manager was NOT friendly & actually told me she would only price modify one for me. Unacceptable. She was extremely rude & actually LAUGHED at me when I calmly explained that the coupon did not limit me to one purchase. I wrote her name down and all of the sudden she became very friendly. May I suggest you bring pen & paper with you?

**Other Great Finds This Week**

:: Walgreens Fans - Become a Facebook fan of Walgreens here and tune in tomorrow for something spectacular (or maybe not!) Who knows? Their Facebook pages says " an exclusive offer" will be available for Walgreens Facebook fans tomorrow (Monday, 12/7) only. I smell something FREE!

:: Another Walgreens update - there is a separate ad for 12/9 - 12/12 this week. According to the ad, you will receive a $5 Register Reward if you spend $25! My guts says the $25 is BEFORE coupons, but I could be wrong. Let me know if you are able to grab this goodie!

:: Last thing I'll say about Walgreens - when I went in tonight., my Walgreens had a sign advertising a FREE 4x6 print with Santa on 12/12! Not sure if this is happening at ALL Wagreens but you may want to check. Beats hitting the mall with 300 other children & their moms! No offense to the children or their moms...I love you. In smaller doses. :)

:: Facebook is really becoming a couponer's dream come true! Become a Facebook fan of Safeway (think Tom Thumb) and on 12/7 they will release a coupon for a FREE box of Clemtines! The advertisement indicates that it will be loaded onto your TT card - so have it handy on 12/7! Must purchase $25 of products in order to use the e-coupon. No problem - I'm sure that is before coupons!

:: Kraft has issued another "Keep the Jingle in Your Holiday" rebate - right on the heels of their last one! I was able to buy 10 qualifying Nabisco products in November (free, of course) and THEN send in for the $10 rebate! Woohoo! If you didn't catch this rebate the last time around, you have another chance. Buy 10 qualifying items from 12/1 - 1/31 and send in this rebate for $10. I love free money! (Thanks, Pocket Your Dollars!)

:: If you haven't noticed - there's a red $5 Hallmark coupon popping up all over the place, namely in tons of different magazines like Oprah, Real Simple, Women's Day, and more! If you don't subscribe or missed these coupons, here is a printable version. I haven't hit Hallmark yet but I understand they have wrapping paper on sale that makes 2 rolls a total of 99¢ after this coupon.

That should keep us busy for a while! Please let me know if you score any other great deals this week.
