Free kids book from Barnes & Noble

We did this last year with our kids, it was great!!
Kids can earn a free book from Barnes & Noble when they read 8 books this summer. Here is how it works:
1. Kids (grades 1-6) read any eight books of their own choosing.
2. Use the Summer Reading Journal to describe their favorite part of each book. A parent/guardian signs the journal when it’s complete. You can also get a Spanish-language Reading Journal.
3. Bring their completed Reading Journal to a Barnes & Noble store between May 26th & September 7th, 2009.4. Get a coupon for a free book (select titles).

Restaurant.com 80% off gift cerificates!

If you have never heard of Restaurants.com you are totally missing out! This site works with many local restaurants as a way to advertise. Once you go to Restaurant.com you can search by zip code and see a list of participating restaurants in your area, you will also see a selection of gift certificate prices ranging from $10 to $100. A $25 gift card is regularly priced at $10 (so 80% off means you'll pay only $2) The only catch is that there is a minimum purchase amount: clearly listed under the gift card prices. Usually it is a $35.00 minimum purchase and they also add in an automatic 18% gratuity. (read the small print before you buy)

Last Saturday we took our family of 5 out to Donnie Macs on Friday night and only paid about $13.00 out of pocket including tip (our bill only came to $32, but our waiter said it was fine) and I paid $3.00 for the certificate. So total of about $16.00 for a great night at a fun restaurant with good food for our family, what a deal!!!
For a limited time only ( through April 30) all certificates are 80% off when you use the promo code LUCKY at checkout. So for a $25.oo "card" you will pay $2.00 or for a $100.00 you will pay only $8.00! I am going to go stock up!

Red Box Monday


Redbox Code for for a FREE rental for Monday April 27th is

This is for today only, just make sure you return it by tomorrow at 9:00 pm to avoid any fees!

Albertsons sale for April 22-28

I am excited about this weeks sale! I tried to go shopping with my kids today, boy was that a mistake! I didn't go to my usual store and they were out of a lot of the things I wanted so I did one promo. I did the ConAgra promo: Spend $25 on participating products, get a checkout voucher worth $10 off your NEXT shopping order. I won't post what I got because it was nothing special, I did not have any coupons so I spent $26.50 and got my 2- $5.00 off next purchase catalinas. So now i am all excited to go shopping tomorrow to use my catalinas to get some movie passed and then shop the Kraft/General Mills promo. It should be a great day for shopping! I will tell you all about it in the morning!

Meridian Bowling Lanes Deals!


Many of you who know me know that I love bowling! I may not be very good at it, but I love it!! One of the things I love about it is that it is a sport for all ages and abilities! My husband and our 3 yr old go at least 1 time a week to Meridian Lanes and I have seen kids from 2 yrs old to this cute little older couple that is there almost every time we go. She has to walk with a walker, but she is out there bowling! The reason that I tell you this is because I want to tell you about a great deal that they have every week that I think everyone could use!

Tuesday and Thursdays from 9:00 am to 5:30pm

  • bowling is $1.25 per game
  • shoes are $1.75

Saturday from 10:00 am - 6:00pm

  • bowling is $1.25 per game
  • shoes are $1.75

One of the reason we love Meridian Lanes (besides the great prices) is that it is very family friendly! I have never had to worry about inappropriate music or questionable things. They are very friendly and it is very clean. You can check out their website here. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone so I hope you will check it out some time. You and your kids will love it! Oh ya! You have to try their hamburgers and french fries! The BEST!!!

Albertsons Double Coupons!

If you are wondering why I have not posted anything about my Albertsons shopping trip it's because I am waiting till Monday! There will be Double Coupons in this Sundays paper so I have been waiting to go shop. It has been really hard but it will be worth it when I get my daughters favorite Life cereal for super cheap!! So don't forget to look for your double coupons on Sunday and don't be afraid to ask family and friends if you can have theirs if they aren't using them!!

House Party!!


I have to tell you about this cool new site I have discovered! It's called houseparty.com and once you are a memeber you can apply to host a home party for national brands you know and love.
"Each event is sponsored by a leading brand and focuses on something cool that the sponsor wants its best fans to experience firsthand and share with their friends." The best part if that if you are selected as a hostess you are given all the things you need to host the party for FREE!
They provide a website that will help you plan your party, everything from sending invites, having a party home site where your friends can RSVP and even leave messages. They also have party ideas and tips. The very best part is that about a week before the party they send you your party pack!
I was selected to host a Werther's Original Comfort Party to introduce my friends to their new Caramel Chocolates! They sent me 5 boxes of chocolates to use at my party and to share with my guests as well as lots of coupons! They also sent me a hostess gift, which is a nice, comfy blanket! I am really excited to have a bunch of my girl friends over for my party! So if you like to have parties and share good things then go here and sign up!! Good luck!

Albertson sale for April 8 - 14

So I finally went shopping tonight. Like I said in my last post this sale was a little complicated so I printed out Albertsons printable shopping list along with the products that are included in the rebate and sat down to work. First I went through my reciepts from the last week to see if I had any products included in the rebate and found that I had $8.00 towards the $40! Then I went through the lists and wrote the things down that I needed and matched them up with any coupons I had until I got to $40.00 then I went through the Kraft items included in the sale to get to $50. Then with list and coupons in hand I headed to Albertsons! Once there i stuck to my list (mostly) and had a pretty quick shopping trip! Originally I was going to get a $20 turkey or ham but as I was shopping I decided that my family will never need or eat that big of either so I decided to get a Turkey breast to use on the rebate and then some ground beef because we needed it anyway! If I had a clear head I would have realized I should have broke it into 2 transactions to use my 5% coolrewards on the first (they expire on Sunday) and then used the 10% catalina that printed off after I bought $25! Any way! This is what I did!

Total out of pocket- $44.13 Total Saved- $68.95
Plus I can send the $11.64 in for a rebate and I got 2 - 10% off catalinas!
If you are having a hard time figuring out how to maximize this weeks Albertsons sale along with the Unilever Rebate you are not alone! Since I have been a little fuzzy in the brain the last few days I have not even tried to put together my plan. Tonight I have been checking out the shopping list, reading the posts on Pinching your pennies, and check a bunch of other blogs. It is all so complicated!!! Discount queens has a good brake down so just go here to read it. I am hoping I will feel up to going tonight or tomorrow to try it out, I will post how I do ASAP!

Also for the rebate you can get the $40 on more then one transaction dated from 4/1 thru 4/30 so I'm going to look over my old receipts to check for any of the participating products, that way I am not buying more things I don't need just to reach the $40!

Get a $15 gift card to Toys R Us!

Today only! Buy any 2 Pampers Value Boxes of Diapers (92 count or higher)and Get a $15 Gift Card at check out! Not bad if you need to buy diapers anyway!

Old Navy Coupons

I am sorry that I didn't post anything yesterday, but I was in a groggy state all day because of the pain killers and muscle relaxants! I did just check and there are still some decent coupons left on Old Navy Weekly! So here is where to find the remaining coupons!
  • $10 off a $50 purchase
    Click the coupon counter at the top of the screen.
  • $2 off any white item
    Click on the boys white collard shirt. He is standing between 2 girls.

Come join the Coupon Train!!!



Lets start a coupon train!!


I have been going through my coupons and have soooo many that I don't want or need so I thought I would start a coupon train for the followers of Hooked on Savings! Let me explain! In a coupon train you take a bunch of coupons ( like 40 or so ) and put them in an envelope and mail them to another person, that person takes what they need and replaces them with ones that they don't need and mails it to the next person! Along the way people take out any expired coupons. If you are interested in getting on the coupon train here is what you need to do!
  • Sign up as a "follower" of Hooked on Savings by going to the "followers" section on the right of the page. This will just make tracking new posts on the blog easier!
  • Then email me at hookedonsavingsblog@gmail.com and give me your name, address and email address
  • Also let me know what kind of coupons you are looking for ( food, cleaning, personal hygiene, etc) so I can be sure to add coupons of interest in the train.

I will mail the train out on April 15 (tax day!) Here are a few important things you will need to agree to in order to participate!

  • You are responsible for postage when it is your turn to mail it to the next person.
  • We would like to keep the coupon count the same so if you take 5 please replace 5!
  • We don't want anyone to get expired coupons so please go through them & take out any expired coupons and replace them if you can with ones you don't need!
  • In order to keep expired coupons at a minimum please make sure you only keep the envelope for 2 days! So if you get them on a Friday, try to have them mailed out on Monday!
  • Please don't use the addresses for any other purchase!

So get signed up now and tell your friends! The order in which I receive requests will be the order I use on the mailing list, so first come first serve! If I get a lot of interest I may do multiple trains so remember to let me know what you are looking for!
