Free Grand Slam at Denny's Tuesday!

Free Grand Slam Breakfast at Denny's - 2/3/2009
Every guest from 6AM - 2PM on Tuesday will receive 1 free Grand slam, and 1 free coupon book with 8 coupons in it. Each coupon book has 4 BOGO's, 2- 25% off coupons, 1 coupon good for free dessert , and 1 coupon good for a free order of pancake puppies. Each Denny's in the US received 1,000 of these coupon books to hand out to guests on Tuesday who order a free Grand Slam.

Per Denny's Corporate every store also received 500 Grand Slam rain check coupons. Denny's has instructed each manger to hand these rain checks out good for a free Grand Slam to any guest who can't wait.

So go into Denny's, on Tuesday ask the manger and get a great coupon book and a free Grand Slam rain check coupon for a later date

Denny's spent 3 million on the Super Bowl ad, and tons more on a full page ad this coming Monday in USA Today. They are taking this very seriously and instructing all stores to staff as if it's a major Holiday and for the staff to be as friendly as humanly possible.

The commercial announcing it airs in the third quarter of the Super Bowl.

Free Cranberry Squares from Amazon! Thanks Kristin!

Bilo Riverside Deals

So far all I see

  1. Helluva Good Dip -$1.69 $0.75 doubled = $0.19 for dip

  2. Ragu is 2 for 3 ($1.50) the $0.75/2 makes them $0.75 a piece

I am going to stock up on Ragu. Since our paper did not get any coupons for Ragu I ordered them off Ebay. I ordered 15 coupons that are $0.75/2 . That will let me buy 30 jars of Ragu at $0.75 a piece. The coupons are always doubled at Bilo-Riverside so this will be a great deal compared to paying full price!

When you are bidding on coupons for a sale. I sugguest selecting a seller that is located closest to your location. Also, If you are the only person bidding, don't hesitate to contact the seller and see if they will end the auction early, due to the timing of the sell.

Today I went to go check the mail and I am still not sure if it came! I found a few pieces of mail buried underneath the snow! I think it may have been from yesterday! Mainly because the Our Town Paper was not here with the Bilo-Riverside Ad

I found buried under snow in the open mail box.

Organic Deals

Jane4Girls is Hosting a Contest on her blog. I suggest you check it out! She also recommends an Organic Grocery Deal Site

I am not a huge fan of organic products, nor do we eat a 100 percent organic, mainly because Organic means carbon based and all things are based from carbon. I do however believe in eating healthy and in moderation. We are huge fruit and vegetable fans in our home and one of my goals with this blog is to show people that they can eat healthy not spend a fortune. Such as my Bird's Eye Steam Fresh Veggie Deal! Much better than canned and you can't go wrong at $0.30 a bag!

Ladies and Gentlemen its okay to just say hi! Comments make me feel good! If I didn't have a blog counter I would think people thought I was just crazy!


My blog

They made me do it!

Let me repeat how much I LOVE Bilo-Riverside in Windber now that the have a new owner. They are awesome!

I have a few personal karma rules of couponing. My number one rule is to never clean a store out, unless they tell me too. Well today Bilo told me too! They were getting another shipment in, so it was encouraged! The Bird's Eye Steam Fresh Vegteables were $1.00 or 10 for 10 as advertised. I ordered several coupons off of ebay and was RAOKed a few from coupon friends.

I did two transactions. The first I bought 18 bags of Vegetables and the second I bought 16 because they told me to go get more since I had more coupons. I then gave the left over coupons to the Cashiers. ( Again working on Karma and reserving freezer space for another deal).

Transaction for 18 Steam Fresh Vegetables Total = $4.20
MFR coupon savings = 15.40
Double Coupon savings ( they did something here) =1.40
Wild Card and Store Savings = 24.82

Total Savings = 41.62

Transaction for 16 Steam Fresh Vegetables Total= $3.40
MFR Coupon Savings =11.20
Wild Card and Store coupon savings =23.52
Double Coupon savings ( something weird again) =1.40
Total Savings = 36.12

I bought 34 Bags of Vegetables ( for some reason it feels like more I may need to count them)

My total out of pocket spending $7.60 for 34 bags!

Awesome Mail Day

  1. Two Kirkland Size 6 Diapers from Costco
  2. 40 $0.35 off Steam Fresh Vegetables I ordered off Ebay
  3. 1 FREE Little Bear Product, 1 $0.55 off Little Bear Product and 2 $0.50 cent off Celestial Seasonings Tea

Stockpiling Rotel ?

I am debating if I should stock up on Ro-Tel. Bilo-Riverside has it 10 for 10 and Evil Place aka Walmart has it for $0.83.

At Bilo it would be $0.40 after the double $0.30 coupon.

At Walmart it would be $0.53 because they don't double coupons.

My problem is that I can't guarantee Bilo will have the same price after the auction ends. Their adds run from Thursday to Wednesday and generally I try to avoid Walmart like the plague.


I absolutely love the new and improved Bilo-Riversids in PA. They were recently sold to independent owners and the new owner of the Windber store has done a great job. They keep the place clean, have great deals and a MUCH friendlier staff.

Today I went and stocked up on more cheap chickens! They are $1.00 a lb and I can make several yummy and healthy meals from each chicken!

  1. Chicken-$2.89
  2. Chicken-3.48
  3. Chicken-3.39
  4. Chicken-3.42
  5. 4 Bar S- Hot Dogs 1.00 and used $0.25 doubled = $0.50 per package
  6. 4 Packages of Kraft Cheese $2.99 and I used 4 $0.75 off coupons that doubled = $1.49 a package
  7. 1 Can Polar Chesnut and 1 Can Bamboo Shoots- $0.99 I used a .50 coupon that doubled=.98 for two cans
  8. Rotel Mild Diced Tomatos- 1.00 and I used a .50 off coupon that doubled and made it FREE
  9. Fresh Express Salad -Reduced to $0.99 I used a $.055 coupon that doubled that gave $0.11 in overage
  10. Lastly I bought 4 packages of Jello using no coupons :( at $0.69 a box.

My total for 19 items was $25.08
MFR Coupon Savings was $5.05
Double Coupon Savings was $ 5.05
Wild Card Savings was $9.29
Total Savings was $19.39

Not as good as last years Target Deal where I got over a years worth free, but I don't want to be left paying full price for wipes! So $0.02 per wipe is an okay deal to me!

There is also another notable deal at Rite Aid that I did not participate in, for Good Nights Pull ups. I have a very strong feeling my son will be potty trained before 4 years old and 60 lbs. He comes to me now at 15 months and pulls on me to change his diaper. So I did opt out of this deal for now.

Stockpiling- Frozen Bird's Eye Steam Fresh

We love the Bird's Eye Steam Fresh Vegetables in our home. They are great because my husband and I have completely different tastes in regard to vegetables. He only likes corn, mushrooms, green peppers and onions. I love almost all vegetables and I am trying to give our child awesome eating habits.

Bilo Riverside
has the Bird's Eye Steam Fresh Vegetables on sale for 10 for 10! Which is awesome because there is a $0.35/ 1 coupon out! Bilo Riverside doubles all coupons up to $0.99. After coupons that makes the Vegetables $0.30 a piece.

In order to stock up I ordered coupons from Ebay thanks to the good ladies over at Babycenter who helped me find a seller who was near by and had 100 percent feed back.

I paid $1.00 for each set of 20 coupons!

If you want to do this deal too here are a few links to ebay auctions for the Birds Eye Coupons.
