Remember the Up& Up Q that Traci found in Family Circle last week? Well that same $1 off a $3 purchase or more of Target’s Up and Up brand products is popping up elsewhere too. Today I got my new February Issue of Parents and it was in there in the middle of a 2-page Target spread about their “new” brand. And Margie emailed me to say she found one in Essence too. I wouldn’t be surprised if it is found in the other big name mags too. BTW- NO mailer in my mailbox! Has anyone seen it? I am starting to think it does not exist :).
I don’t know if any of you have been looking, but I am getting tired of seeing this same logo up advertising $75 in savings on the Playskool site HERE with no coupons! No coupons mean 0$ savings, not $75! Anyway- I heard the Mr. Potato Head Valentine’s Day Spud Bud is ringing up at $5.99 and I am hoping for another $5 Q or any toy Q for that matter! :). I called Playskool and asked about the issue and they said the company is due to put more Qs up in a few days. Can I guarantee that will happen? No. But it’s worth keeping an eye on!
Lots of chatter today on forums about what’s on clearance. Lots of reports of baby clearance, women’s clothing, housewares and toys at 75% off. Some finding 75% markdowns in more than one area of the store- some finding markdowns in specific areas only. But many reports too of toys and baby stuff still stuck at 30 or 50%. It’s obviously a gamble to make the trip and possibly be met with disappointment— but I’m just letting you know what I am hearing.
So hmmm…. do I go put my shoes on and head out the door? Tough call as my husband might strangle me if I do! LOL. What about you folks? Anybody find anything good today? d
Being a new Blog and all, and only 5 weeks in- I have still had a lot of set up work to do as well as post- and I am falling behind on my other tasks- one of them being keeping my coupons organized! I have really not had time to trade- and I have decided I just have too many to use and would like to offer 2 nice big, coupon-packed flat rate envelopes as prizes to 2 of my readers.
I don’t know what it is about the area of Florida I live in- but we are spoiled! There are always lots of coupons in all the stores. So many in fact, that I can’t tell you how many times I have walked up to a CS desk to hand them a bunch of tearpads and booklets that have expired! I know it is not like that for everyone- so it is time to share the wealth! There will be 2 winners. Each winner will receive a total of 11 inserts- including 2 complete sets of inserts from 1/3/10: (4 SS, 4 RP & 2 GM), as well as 1 P&G from 12-27. Also- the envelopes will be full of all the Tearpad & booklet Qs you see in the pic (you can click to see a larger view). Most of the Qs have a pretty far out expiration date- but there are a few that will expire on 1/31.

Word is there is a new Target Mailer out that includes 10 pages of coupons that are not specific manufacturer’s Qs, rather they are $ off categories- ie $.75/1 cosmetic product, $1/1 any pet food, and so on. If anyone receives it and would like to e-mail me a pic and/or a list of Qs in it, I’d appreciate it. I am not sure I would be lucky enough to receive 2 in a row!
