Did You See This???

I logged into my Amazon account today to add another $5 giftcode courtesy of Swagbucks and I see this:

"Dear Customer,

I have big news for Amazon Prime members - we've just signed a deal with FOX to add a broad selection of movies and TV shows to our unlimited instant streaming service later this fall. The new additions from the FOX library include 24, Arrested Development, The X-Files, Ally McBeal, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and - available on digital video for the first time - The Wonder Years. We now have deals with CBS, NBCUniversal, Sony, and Warner Bros, and adding FOX will bring the total to more than 11,000 movies and TV shows available for unlimited instant streaming.

Since launching earlier this year, we have now doubled the number of titles available in Prime instant videos, and there's still more to come. Prime membership remains $79 a year, and of course features our unlimited free two-day shipping on millions of products. Prime is one of the best values anywhere.

Prime instant videos can be played on more than 300 HDTVs, Blu-ray players, and set-top boxes.

Millions have already joined Amazon Prime...

Unlimited free two-day shipping on million of items
Unlimited streaming of thousands of instant videos
With more instant videos coming soon:

More instant videos coming soon to Prime

If you're a Prime member, start watching now. If not, start your one-month free trial today.

Thanks for being a customer,

Jeff Bezos
Founder & CEO

P.S. You can also watch movies and TV shows instantly at our Amazon Instant Video Store, where we offer more than 100,000 movies and TV shows for rent or purchase, no Prime membership required."

This is very exciting. I have been an Amazon Prime member for sometime now and I love it. I love being able to stream loads of movies and tv shows to my computer and my bluray player. We don't have cable and when I say we don't have cable I mean we get absolutely ZERO channels on our tv. So we use Amazon Prime to watch many shows and movies. We also have a Sony BluRay player and it comes with some channels loaded on it (which you have to have internet and wifi to access) and so we watch also since it is free. I have been watching loads of Fraiser lately and was very excited to find it on Amazon for free for Prime Members. Now they will be carrying The Wonder Years and X Files I am very stoked!!

Loads of High Value Good Coupons to Print Now!!

Wowzers there are some amazing coupons to print right now. The best part is when I printed mine they don't expire until 11/20!!! Remember to print now because if you wait they may no longer be available. Also remember you can print each coupon 2 times!!! But please do not photocopy them because that is fraud!

Here are some good ones I see:

$5 off Schick Intuition Refill

$4 off 2 boxes of Playtex Tampons 14ct or larger

$6 off 2 packs of Schick Disposable Razors (reports are saying you can buy 10packs at Walmart for less than $2 each which means overage!!)

$5 off Quattro for Women Razor or Refill

$5 off Schick Hydro Razor

$1 off Schick Hydro Shave Gel

75 cents off Edge or Skintimate Shave Gel

There were also ones for various sunscreen and they too were very high value.

Food wise there were some for Philly cream cheese,Cheerios, Carnation Instant Breakfast, Gerber Snacks etc.

I bet there will be some good sales and money making opportunities with a lot of these coupons so go print them now!! Just click on the picture below to pick and choose which ones you want to print.

Free After Rebate (Possible) Christmas Presents!

First go here to here and sign up for a free account. Then while you are on that site search for Walmart (this way you will get 3% back on your purchase- which means you will possibly make money off your purchase). Then on Walmart's site search for Venus Spa Breeze Holiday Gift Set Caddy. Look for the one that is $9. It has free shipping but that is not the best part - when you receive this item it comes with a free subscription to Allure magazine but you can opt out and instead get a $9.99 refund! Limit 1 per person/household.

I bought 2 and will just fill out the other form with my mothers info and let her have the $9.99.

Here is my order:

Venus Spa Breeze Holiday Gift Set Caddy with Bonus Free Allure Subscription for 1 Year. Value $23.00 Qty 2 Mon 9/26/11 to Wed 9/28/11

Item Total: $18.00
Shipping: Free
Tax: $1.26

Total for this Shipment: $19.26

So I will actually make 72 cents off of ordering both of these (well, my mother and myself will be sharing that 72 cent profit!) but I will also get 3% back on the $19.26 from going through this link. Which means I will make approximately 58 cents (I think - my math could be wrong). Yes, it isn't much but they won't send me a check for awhile so I could possibly buy other items from elsewhere going through their links and get more money back.

So now I have 2 Christmas gifts bought and I can cross those off my list.

I decided to go to Target to buy some graph paper for school. Well, I ended up spending close to $115! But I did buy loads of stuff and some large items too.

Here goes:

small room ac unit 5000bc $57.48 (I figured this would probably be the cheapest I would ever find one)

desk chair $9.98 (granted it is pink but still I desperately needed a chair and it turned out to be rather comfy!)

2 - tower fans @ $6.24 each (I have never seen them this cheap)

small metal personal/desk fan $4.88 (works quite nice)

Hot Shot Bug Spray $2.78 (probably not that great of a price)

Neutrogena foaming pads bonus twin pack $2.48 (realized it is for that cleaning device they sell - oh well)

Clean and Clear Blotting Papers twin pack $1.98 (I love these but am generally too cheap to buy them)

2 sets of Clean and Clear Acne Wash twin packs with bonus trial size sample $2.48 each

2 sets of Clean and Clear blackhead eraser scrub twin packs $1.98 each

Revlon emery boards $1.47

Revlon lash and brow groomer $3.99

3 Composition books @ 20 cents each

4 refill filler papers @ 37 cents each

2 graph paper notebooks @ 75 cents each

5 notebooks @ 10 cents each (going to go back and buy 10 more today)

cottonelle wipes $2.24 (free coupon was about to expire)

Only used 2 coupons:

$5 off any 2 Revlon Beauty Tools catalina
free cottonelle wipes

Total after taxes and coupons $114.73

I will not have to buy facial cleansers for hopefully 2 years with all of these and all of the Biore ones that I bought awhile back. Also after going back today to buy more notebooks I am hoping that I will be good for at least this entire year of college (3 semesters). Would be nice if they would also last me another 3 semesters. I think I have about 17 of them so far. I am already on a second one for Algebra class and it is only 3 weeks in!!

Other than that I have not really been shopping. I pretty much have used up all of my Extra Care Bucks and haven't really been shopping there or anywhere lately. I am using up our stock pile and it hasn't even made a dent in it! I am just buying groceries but only items we absolutely need and when there is a good deal ($10 off coupon or $10 gift card with a certain purchase). We have a tiny fridge and freezer so can't stock up too much. Also have no cabinet space and a very tiny kitchen. But we do have certain food items stockpiled for awhile.

I look at it this way the ac unit was originally more than my entire total!! Almost like I bought the ac unit and got everything else for free!!!

This is one of those stores that you go through their link to whatever shopping site you choose and then you get cash back on your purchase. They also have coupon codes available on their site to help you spend less. I have been using them a lot since I signed up and have already had 2 checks sent to me. They also offer specials where they double the cash back for certain stores.
