Costco: Shopping without a membership!



Julia sent this great post she wrote about shopping at Costco without a membership. I thought it might be of interest to many of you. My Costco is pretty far away and I might only get out there once a year. So I have no reason for a membership. Plus, I have dropped my Sam's membership because I can do MUCH better couponing than the deals I get there. BUT, I do like the merchandise at Costco and it is fun to go. SO I am going to have to try Julia's advice and give it a try!

I had heard this from many people so I decided to go into Costco yesterday to verify it, sure enough it’s true! I asked at the customer service desk if this was true and the lady said absolutely and began to tell me the ins & outs. It was verified by several people behind the counter as she asked them for a few specific details.

Here is how you do it:

Purchase a Costco Cash Card (gift card) at the Customer Service desk, must be a minimum of $10.00. Use that gift card as your “member’s card” to get into the store. Shop as you normally would. When you go to pay, you pay first with your gift card but any remaining balance must be paid with cash or debit (no American Express). That’s it! You’ve just shopped at Costco for free and saved the $50 a year membership fees. Of course you don’t get the Costco Member benefits, cheap gas, etc but your items are still protected under Costco’s very generous return policy.

Of course my latest experience at Costco was shocking. The prices most assuredly did NOT make great deals. There were a few excepti0ns but for the most part shopping the sales with coupons and stocking up when the prices are rock bottom was a far better deal. Just remember Bulk is NOT always Better. I realize America has become ingrained in that myth, but it’s not true.

UPDATE: I’ve learned that you CAN buy gas with a cash card and you can also purchase liquor and use the pharmacy to fill prescriptions, all without a membership! We will absolutely be buying gas there again!

Kroger: Deals for the week! April 28th


Kroger deals this week are O.K. it would be a good week to take your coupons and wander through the store using up any that might be expiring. I use all my $.50 and under coupons at Kroger. They will double and triple here making the deals better than Walmart or anywhere else. Anything over $.50 I save for Walmart.

I listed a few of my favorite deals first....
Wheaties Fuel is priced from .99-$1.99 and when you buy 4 you get $4 catalina back. Here are a few coupons to help make this deal a MONEY MAKER! (Thanks Courtney!)

Wheaties Fuel: .99-$1.99
.75/1 Printable
.75/1 Printable
Upload ecoupon here .75/1
Final Price: Free + money maker with catalina!

Second great deal:
If you need or take Prevacid this is the time to get it from Kroger. It is currently $10.99 (starting tomorrow) Here is how it works:
Prevacid 14 ct. $10.99
ECoupon $6/1
4/11SS $6/1
Final Price: varies but mostly FREE!
If the $6 ecoupon comes off with the $6 from 4/11SS, you would make $1.01!!!

Third Deal:
I do this one all the time. I give these out like crazy in June for Father's Day! Stock up now! McCormick Grill Mates Seasoning Packets (1 oz) – $1.00
Use $1.00 Q from 4/25 RP
Final cost is FREE!

Kroger has a 10 for $10 right now, to see all the deals go HERE.

Reminder, what is all the stuff on the sidebar??

This link at the top is really handy. The Coupon Database is a place that you can go and type in a item that you are looking for or to buy and it will tell you where you can find a coupon for it if there are any! If it is a printable coupon you will see a blue link to that coupon location. Not all coupons you find in there are printables though. If you see a date and a RP, SS or P&G those are the coupon inserts that it can be found along with the date that it was in the Sunday paper.

Here is a shameless promotion button :) You can copy and paste the HTML under this picture if you want to put my button on your blog. As if you want to see more of me!

This is further down on the side bar. I was going to do a weekly radio show but only did a couple. I have more planned :) It was really fun and I think they are very informative to listen to. Just click on the play button to listen!

This button has darling short videos and cute stories directed at things that face women every day. Every now and then they have special offers available and it is always changing. Yes, when you click on it I do get a few pennies, it is an add, but a good one :)

The long "skyscraper" pictures are adds that I have, the Coupons.com one is a great resource for printing internet coupons. They are always changing and updating the coupons, it is good to check it every few days. I do get some benefit's from people clicking on the adds. Sometimes it is money or others are gift cards, it isn't enough for me to quit my day job though :( But it pays for me to update my blog with a great designer every now and then!

The pictures of the kids are there because I love to see their faces every day! Thanks for reading this far, I just wanted to make sure you knew what all the clutter was on the side and that if you were looking for something it might make it easier to find!

Lane Bryant: Free Pantie!



Go head on over here and complete a simple form to score a printable coupon valid for a FREE Cacique solid cotton Panty (up to a $12.50 value!)– No other purchase required! This coupon can be used at any Lane Bryant, Lane Bryant Outlet, or Cacique store and is valid until 5/03/10. Lane Bryant sizes start at a 12 and you can find them in almost any mall.

Also, when you print this coupon it might be really light colored but the bar code will be dark. I am also not sure how many you can print off and get free panties for??? If you are asked for an email address I would use your extra one, I have heard that they send a lot of email!

CVS: Avatar DVD deal??

Thanks Edie for the email reminding me about the Avatar DVD deal at CVS. I was trying to figure out a way to make it work since I almost picked up a copy at Wal-Mart for $15, but decided I would try CVS first! The best part??? Even if you don't have any coupons you can still do this deal because most of the coupons are printables that everyone shouel be able to get!

BTW ~ Edie is in the running for our new little girls name! I LOVE that name... maybe because I grew up in the 80's and 90's and like Edie Brickell and the New Boheminans.... I am a dork I know!

Anyway, onto the deal!

Buy:
2 Wheat Thins $1.00
2 Fig Newtons $1.00
1 Lucky Charms $2.44
1 Quilted Northern $6.99
2 Kix $2.44
2 All Detergant $3.50
