Hi Sharon! I’m not sure if you are aware of this or not so I thought I would share.

At the top of Kroger’s 6/13 ad, it said to inquire with the pharmacist about how to get $25 for a transferred prescription. So, I asked. I was told that all I had to do was bring in or just give them the details of my prescription from another pharmacy and they would transfer it and load $25 on my Kroger Plus card. There is NO Coupon needed!! I transferred two last week and another one this week!! I was told that there is a $300 limit.

Sharon E. July 1, 2010 at 8:58 am

Sharon, I just wanted to thank you for telling us about the Kindle for PC. I put the Kindle on my laptop and proceeded to download dozens of free books! I had been debating since last fall about buying a Kindle and didn’t know if I would like not having the actual book in my hands or not. I liked the PC Kindle so well that about a month ago I broke down and bought myself a Kindle. It is so neat! It is compact, you can change the font, it will read to you and if you buy a book(or download a free book) Amazon downloads to both of my Kindles! I have about 80 books on there now and have only bought $25 worth (with a gift card from a friend! Thanks, Tracey D.)I even downloaded the Bible free! Can you imagine taking 80 books with you on vacation in one little piece of tachnology? I love it!!! By the way, you can buy Amazon gift cards at Kroger so there is no need for a credit card when purchasing books. Thank you so much, Sharon E.

shannon July 5, 2010 at 8:27 am

You know about the Food Lion deal this week don’t you. Buy 5 get 5 off selected Kraft items. Went to printed 20 $1 off lunchmeat coupons went to Food Lion and got 5 packs of lunchmeat for 5.50.

Sandy July 8, 2010 at 10:28 am

I was reading an article in a magazine and found out an interesting tidbit. You know the money machines at Kroger, where you can take your change and turn it into cash. Well, I didn’t know that they charge you 8.9 cents per dollar to turn it into cash for you. I guess because I’ve never used it before. The article also said that you can get 100% of your money back if you place that money on a gift card or eCertificate for merchandise at Amazon, iTunes, Love’s, Old Navy, Starbucks, and others. You can also donate your money to a charity like American Red Cross or the March of Dimes, etc. Remember all charitable donations are tax free too. Just thought this was interesting and thought you might like to know about this money saving tip.

SharonW July 8, 2010 at 10:59 am

I’ve used the Coinstar machine several times for Amazon cards. Thanks for the extra info!

Tessa Goodin July 9, 2010 at 11:05 am

Hello Sharon.

I am now a stay at home mother and am new to the coupon thing. I saw i Food Lion’s leaflet that they had All detergent buy one get one free. A couple of weeks ago, I saw a coupon for All Free and Clear. I was wondering if you knew if that coupon was still good and if it is, where can I get one. I tried All’s website, but the onlu coupon they had available was for All Oxi-active.

Thank you very much.

SharonW July 9, 2010 at 2:47 pm

Hi Tessa,
Welcome to the world of coupons! It is alot of fun! The only All coupon I can find right now is the All Oxi. I just posted that link again. If they are out of the All Oxi at Food Lion, you could ask them for a rain check. They might let you get the sale price next week when they restock the Oxi version. Good luck and have fun!

Sharon, here is a $1 off coupon for McDonald’s fruit smoothies or frappes. Click on the purple circle and then enter email address. Good until 8/15.

Sandy July 17, 2010 at 2:30 pm

I just wanted to tell you that I have some freebies to pass out at your July coupon class!!

Sandy July 17, 2010 at 10:07 pm

I’m just interested in knowing about the Food Lion guiding stars game that you posted about last week. Do they post a similar game each week or what? Those were some really good coupons and I scored some great savings on the vegetables. I was just wondering. Was it on the web page or where? Can’t wait to hear from you!

Glenda July 20, 2010 at 9:01 am

I was at your class last night. I have some swag bucks, but I’m not sure how I get them to apply to my ebay or amazon account. Thanks for your help.


SharonW July 20, 2010 at 10:05 am

Hey Glenda,
Congrats on your swagbucks! now you can start spending some free money! I just reposted the directions for turning them into paypal or amazon money. If that doesn’t make sense, just let me know and I’ll walk you through the process! Good luck!

Tina July 20, 2010 at 9:27 am

Hi Sharon….I cannot find the rebate for the stackable crates at Office Depot!I can find the ones for Purell and the stapler but I have searched and searched for the crates and can’t seem to find it! Am I missing something?? Thanks!!

SharonW July 20, 2010 at 11:05 am

Have you checked in the store? They should be able to tell you where to go to redeem that rebate. I have not used the OD rebates yet so I don’t know if you just pick up a rebate request from in store. Sorry. I don’t see it online either.

Tina July 20, 2010 at 12:44 pm

Sharon, I went to OD and the rebates are printed on the receipts when u purchase them!! They even made copies of my receipt for me to send in!
They had a sign for a free rebate above a 12 pk of scented markers of purchase price $7.99 and the rebate didn’t print. She went and looked and it was an old ad they forgot to remove. I told her that was ok and she said no that they would fix it. She handed me back $7.99 in cash to fix their mistake!! They were so nice! I am now a fan of OD!!

Lisa Breeding July 20, 2010 at 4:11 pm

Last night I heard some of you talking about using your Kroger card to get gas in Harrodsburg, but I didn’t catch which gas station. My husband works in Harrodsburg and this would be handy for him. Thanks!

Hey.. Have you heard of that you can earn money to take surveys? wondering if this is legit? thanks

Megan July 23, 2010 at 5:58 pm

hey- didn’t know if you knew about the Bread Basket and Discount Grocery Store in salvisa.. It is right past 1160. It is the place by all the wooden building that they have 4-sale on the highway.

Sometimes you can get great deals there -Now with using coupons I don’t go there is much as I used to b/c they don’t accept coupons. Just thought I would let you know! Megan

MeganK July 24, 2010 at 1:25 am

Hey! New to the site and so thankful to find something that’s in my area! I am somewhat new to the couponing thing but have learned alot over the past few months. When and where is your next class and what kind of things do you talk about? Also, I as wondering if you could explain lead me in the direction to understand the Kroger’s coupon policy as well as how they double. Thanks!

SharonW July 24, 2010 at 4:23 am

Welcome to Real Life Deals Megan The next coupon class is going to be on August 16 from 5:30-7:30. This month will just be swapping coupons – not a real class like normal. In September we plan to have another real coupon class. That’s where we’ll be discussing the different stores and how to use coupons at each one. We also will talk about other ways to save money in real life – on the internet as well as samples and deals.

Here’s a link to Kroger policy and rules etc….ttp://
Hope this helps. Looking forward to meeting you and talking more!

julie July 26, 2010 at 4:21 pm

I shopped at kroger today getting tide, downey, charmin and such. i did have my coupons from kroger uploaded on my card but did not do the pg savers. i dont think i received all discounts. I went back and uploaded pg savers so this will be a extra discount. also i did not see the 4 dollars off my price eithier for buying 4 of the products. please help me with what i need to do.

SharonW July 27, 2010 at 6:04 am

Sorry you didn’t get all the discounts you thought you should. A couple things to remember: You must load the ecoupons before you shop. They are bonus coupons that don’t always come off – esp if you use paper manufacurers coupons. Technically you only get 1 coupon per product but sometimes a paper coupon will still work if you have an ecoupon. If you bought 4 participating items and didn’t get $4.00 deducted automatically as part of the P&G promotion, just go back to your local store and ask the manager. Hopefully this wiill help.

Stephanie M July 28, 2010 at 7:57 am

Thought you may want to check this out. This makes the All You magazine $1.24 an issue.

Tina July 28, 2010 at 8:57 pm

Sharon….I found a good deal on shutterfly today. I custom made 3 cards with my own pictures and text for $1.06 shipped! My Dad, Father-in-law and Husbands b-days are all in August so this really came in handy. I would have paid way more than $1.06 for 3 cards elsewhere!
Just use the code SUMMERCARDS in the promo code box!

Anyone that uses Sun Crystals sweetner – Kroger has the packets on close-out for 2.99. Go to Sun Crystals website and you can get a $1.00 coupon. This is a 100 packet box on closeout.

shannon August 9, 2010 at 7:08 pm

FYI I bought 4 boxes of Trix and 4 other qualifying items to get the mega event price of 1.49 a box. I used 2- $1 off 2 GM cereal.So I paid 3.96 for the cereal. At checkout I got back a $4 and $1 catalina from general mills. They paided me to get Trix. Ain’t life great.

Tina September 2, 2010 at 7:24 am

Hi Sharon, I read on another blog that there will be no coupon inserts in this Sunday’s paper because of labor day. Do you know if this is true?

SharonW September 2, 2010 at 10:06 am

That’s true as far as I can tell. I just mentioned your name on the blog! Thanks for the suggestion!

Glenda September 8, 2010 at 7:38 am

SharonW September 8, 2010 at 8:39 am

SharonW September 22, 2010 at 10:15 am


Megan September 22, 2010 at 4:25 pm

Guess what went to kroger and got the batteries you were talking about on the blog -they were 4 dollars today and had a dollar off coupon – then an e-coupon of 1 came off!! YEAH!!! Alot of name brand batteries for only $2!!!!

Tina September 23, 2010 at 11:48 am

I went to Kroger yesterday and bought my husband Schick razor refills and had an ecoupon loaded onto my Kroger card for $4 off. I checked my receipt since it was a high dollar coupon and I didn’t have a paper one. It was not on there so I took your advice and called Kroger’s headquarters. After waiting over 10 min. they gave me another # just for coupons loaded onto your Kroger card. That # is 1-888-553-3003. She was super nice and credited $4 to my Kroger card for my next visit and also told me that when we use other sites like Cellfire and Shortcuts make sure that we don’t download duplicate ones. For example if you already have a coupon downloaded for Downey from the Kroger site…don’t download another Downey coupon from another site. She said that it will cause an error and kick all of the Downey coupons out and not use any of them. Even if you are buying 2. So that could be a reason that some ecoupons don’t work! She said that I had several errors on my Kroger card because of this! I just thought that was some useful info!

MeganL October 11, 2010 at 9:17 pm

Hey.. went to the mall -rack room shoes $5 off coupon gift card thing (like you put on here) It has to be $5 before taxes. so I got a 4.99 sock and a .99 sock. I did need these for a gift so it worked out well! Also- Aveda Store in mall- they said to get their reward card you had to pay $10??? I thought you said you got yours for free?? JUst wondering thanks :)

SharonW October 12, 2010 at 6:08 am

Great on the Rack room deals! Love it! As for Aveda – I don’t have a rewards card with them because I have never actually spent a dime there. But I signed up for the birthday club. They mail me a coupon each year on my bday month to get a free item.

MeganL October 12, 2010 at 9:08 am

what about getting a free sample product on thursdays? i thought you had mentioned that?? maybe you didn’t -thanks

MeganL October 12, 2010 at 9:09 am

i thought you said something about a free product sample on thursdays?? maybe i was wrong? thanks

SharonW October 12, 2010 at 5:44 pm

Hmmm….. I don’t know about that one. Which product? I can’t remember anything that gives free samples on Thursdays If you remember what I said I’ll look into it.

Rhonda October 14, 2010 at 8:48 pm

thanks so much for the class today. I am going through your blog trying to figure out new things…I am linking your blog on mine.

Cora October 16, 2010 at 4:42 pm

Sharon, I am your sister’s friend. I went to the grocery today and spent before the Kroger card and coupons $38 & some change. After Kroger card and coupons, I spent $5 and some change! Thank you so much for this site. You should fix it to ask at the top of the home page if we want to make this our home page. You would get more hits, I think.

SharonW October 16, 2010 at 6:34 pm

Yay! Great shopping trip! Glad you were able to save so much money! Great idea about the option of making it the home page. I’ll see if I can do that! Welcome again!

Sharon…. Monticello Banking Company is working to put together a “coupon exchange room” in our Liberty location. Anyone who is interested in participating may stop by the bank and bring coupons to exchange. It will be ready to go next Wednesday, November 10th.

Can’t wait to see our “super savers”.

Martha November 7, 2010 at 3:08 pm

Today, Sunday, and tomorrow, Monday, at Pamida, they are tripling coupons up to and including $1.00. Only 3 of the same coupon. Will not take off more than item cost, i.e. if item costs 2.50 and you have 1.00 off,(tripled to 3.00 off) they will only take off 2.50 (the cost of the item.) of couse, taxes must be paid :)

Martha November 7, 2010 at 3:12 pm

p.s. thanks for the naked lady bulbs, hoping to get those in next year, after daughter hopefully gets her young dog, and enjoy them for many years to come. thanks for the class at the bank and the exchange of info.

SharonW November 7, 2010 at 4:39 pm

You’re welcome. Always great to share the fun of flowers and information! :-)

MeganL November 8, 2010 at 5:54 pm

hey.. i went to lexington today to the mall.. they have holiday coupon books out ….don’t konw if this is the same as the other book u got. I was able to get a free travel size pillow from Sleep Number store (it said when you find out your sleep number- but the guy saw me with my kids and said i can just give it to you ) It had a free coffee from starbucks no purchase necessary. We ate at IHOP and used our free meal that we received by joining the emails.. so we only had to pay tip. Got lots of free and really cheap things today!! Very fun.. till we got in our van and the battery was DEAD :( luckily a man jumped us and we made it back home !! hope you are having a great day!! megan

SharonW November 8, 2010 at 9:12 pm

I love making trips to the mall like that – except for not the dead battery part :-( Glad it worked out ok.

MeganL November 15, 2010 at 8:51 pm

Thanks so much for taking time to come and teach and help others (for free)!!! You are such a wonderful person. Thanks for doing this blog for everyone. I think that the friends I brought really enjoyed it. They are so excited about couponing!!! I got several great coupons to get me free things tonight. Also you know the Kotex coupons for $2.oo off 2 packs. You know at Wal-Mart the packs that are like .97 cents . It is legit to use those coupons on those Kotex pads right. I have had no trouble before but I had some issues tonight with someone saying that they are not legit b/c 2 together doesn’t equal $2. I want to be like you and use real coupons that are legit? So are those coupons legit to use that way? Thanks for the help on my question. Megan

SharonW November 15, 2010 at 8:55 pm

I really enjoyed the class tonight. It’s fun when I see people really getting excited about saving money :-) Thanks for bringing your friends. As for the Kotex…..I still try to use that coupon because the .97 liners are still pads….. I haven’t tried to use the coupon in about 3 months because I have such a stash and I just honeestly sometimes hate to mess with it. One friends says it no longer works for her because the store has decided that liners are not really pads :-( So that’s one for you to decide if it’s worth the problem. Doesn’t Hburg accept coupons better than Dville Walmart? I’ve never shopped at Hburg so don’t know. You saw tonight how even though I try to stay legit with my coupons, sometimes mistakes just happen :-) Keep the ideas coming Love hearing from you!

MeganL November 15, 2010 at 10:47 pm

before it always worked and in 2 different check out lanes I had 2 different experiences. The lady was like this is not right i explained earlier.. but I went thru another lane ( a older man) and it was COMPLIMENTING me on how I was doing good saving money by using coupons.. Kinda confusing but I do personally feel the coupon is legit for it … so maybe I should just go thru a man’s checkout lane- haha!!! thanks.. talk to you later- megan

Jen November 16, 2010 at 3:26 pm

I got a question about coupons…if you have a manf coupon but it doesnt say one per purchase can you use another one?

for example, diapers on sale at rite aid for $5.99 after up reward, I have a manf coupon for 2.50, it doesnt say one per purchase so can i also you another manf coupon for same purchase?

another question…
the butterball coupon for $4 off when buy 4 gravy, ect…if i buy 8 of them and have another $4 coupon can I get $8 off the turkey?

thanks for the help and coupon class!!

SharonW November 16, 2010 at 8:04 pm

Hey Jen!
Good questions. Here you go – hope this helps. You can always only use one manuf coupon for one item – doesn’t matter if it says so or not. But you can use store coupon in addition to the manuf coupon so if you had a rite aid huggies coupon plus a manuf huggies then you can get 2 coupons for the same item. Make sense?

The turkey deal – where is that at? I don’t remember seeing that one and can’t remember the details on it. Where is that at? Is it Kroger?

Jen November 16, 2010 at 8:52 pm

Its a manf coupon. It says save $4 on butterball turkey when buy any combo of 4 crescent rolls, stove top or gravy. I saw another coupon in the sunday paper. I guess since its a manf coupon I cant use another.

SharonW November 16, 2010 at 9:52 pm

I missed that coupon (prob because my freezer is full and there’s no room for a turkey so I knew I wasn’t buying one this week). since the coupon is off the turkey because you bought the 4 items, you may be able to buy 8 items and use 2 coupons. I’ll look tomorrow and see if I find that coupon and see what the wording is. Worst case? They won’t let you use it and you can just put the extra 4 items back on the shelf. That’s not double dipping though if you buy the required items. I’ll check on it and see. If you try it, I’d love to hear if it works!

Sara November 17, 2010 at 10:52 am

This is a .35/1 IP for hamburger, chicken, tuna helper. When you buy 3 you get a $1.50 CAT. Last I checked, they were $1.50 each. I’m not sure when the catalina deal expires.

SharonW November 17, 2010 at 12:54 pm

I can’t get this coupon to print yet :-( I saw this yesterday on another blog but it looks like it may be a coupon you print after you do a survey? I can’t tell. I’m looking to see if I can find the coupon elsewhere. I think the catalina is running till 11-28????

Stephanie November 19, 2010 at 7:38 am

Earn swagbucks when using coupons printed from swagbucks.

MeganL November 19, 2010 at 8:41 am

there is a coupon that says $1.00 off any Morton’s Sea Salt.. Wal-Mart has it for a dollar— So if you have the coupon too you can get it for free :-)

MeganL November 24, 2010 at 1:53 pm

ok. here is a ? – How save is it to enter sweepstakes online /instant win games??? i have entered some – i only have to give name, address, email, maybe age. then i try to make sure to uncheck anything i don’t want… so what do you think about sweepstakes/instant win games on internet?? thanks for the help-megan

SharonW November 24, 2010 at 7:00 pm

Good question. Let me make a post about that this weekend but for now – I love entering online IWG (instant win games)! I’ll list some of my favorite sites too. Good suggestion :-) and Good luck!!!!

MeganL November 24, 2010 at 7:25 pm

Brenda Ruckel November 24, 2010 at 9:03 pm

We are looking for a used car. Do you know of any place that has auctions or somewhere to get a good car for cheap.

SharonW November 24, 2010 at 9:46 pm

I’m sorry. I don’t really have any connections for cars. :-( Sorry I’m no help on that one. If I think of anything I’ll def let you know.

wanda November 25, 2010 at 7:16 am

MeganL November 25, 2010 at 11:31 am


MeganL November 25, 2010 at 11:34 am

CVS has the tylenol precise heat patchs on sale for 7.99 and you get 2.00 extra bucks.. not in ad but just happened to look..I had a 3.00 off manufacter coupon and then a internet CVS coupon for 2.00 .. so it made a great deal for 1 pkg. I paid .99 cents after extra bucks and coupons are taken off!!!!

MeganL November 28, 2010 at 9:55 pm

sharon here is a coupon i found on the fayette mall website..

got to then go to coupon page click on picture of coupon book and then more coupons then aveda store

Glenda November 29, 2010 at 8:32 pm


CVS has Purex sheets on sale for $7.99 buy 1 get 1 free. I have a rain check for Purex sheets for $5.99 with $2. ECB they said I couldn’t use both. I can get 1 package for 5.99 but I couldn’t get the free one. Is this right? I should have asked for the manager.


SharonW November 29, 2010 at 9:10 pm

Hmmm…. tricky one. I really don’t know how it should have come together. Danville CVS? Ask for the maager – they’re really helpful and will work with you. I’m sorry I don’t know. I’d love to hear if you go back cause this is a new question. Rain check and buy one get one free?!?!? Interesting…

MeganL November 29, 2010 at 11:02 pm

there is a EOS(brand name) lip balm on sale for 2.99 get 2.99 Extra bucks back… found this in the h-burg store while i was shopping had seen this on some site online too!! great extra gift for my neices.

MeganL December 1, 2010 at 4:14 pm

UPDATE ON AVEDA… you don’t even have to print ad ( i think) just bring them a new toy and receive a full size pure-fume! You get to choose a scent .. I can’t believe the real cost is $20.00!!! But got it for free by giving a toy for toy drive. They also gave me a sample of their tea and then also gave me a free neck massage!!! :) very nice!

MeganL December 1, 2010 at 4:22 pm

oh and the lady said that you can bring as many toys in and get more pure-fume.. she said give a gift get a gift for someone for x-mas!! so I wonder if you could take several in one day – I asume so??!!! great way to give to others but also get something too!

Connie Snider December 3, 2010 at 12:57 pm

I missed the last class at the Library. What are we doing with expired coupons now? Also I find it frustrating trying to review my Kroger receipts to be sure I got credit for my items and coupons especially when their ink is very low… any advice?? there have been times when I didn’t think I got all my 10 item credits but the print is such a poor quality I gave up trying.

Stephanie December 6, 2010 at 7:40 am

CVS in Harrodsburg will no longer take internet coupons. The manager will not let you use them.

SharonW December 6, 2010 at 10:28 am

What?!!! I have not heard that. Yikes! I hate to hear that. :-(

MeganL December 14, 2010 at 5:45 pm

Tina December 15, 2010 at 6:26 pm

Hey Sharon…I heard that there would not be any coupon inserts in this Sundays paper due to Christmas. Just a heads up for those who buy a paper just for the coupons. Save your $2!!

SharonW December 15, 2010 at 8:22 pm

Thanks for the reminder. I just put up a post scheduled for this weekend.

MeganL December 20, 2010 at 9:09 am

MeganL December 21, 2010 at 8:07 pm

Also the 1.00 off Tone body wash will supposedly make for a great deal at cvs next week!!!

MeganL December 22, 2010 at 10:25 pm

get a coupon for 1.00 off any 1 purex complete 3-in-1 laundry sheets (excludes 2 count) i printed today and my expiration date was 2-16-2011

MeganL December 30, 2010 at 6:37 pm

i just started this swagbucks so do you recommend going ahead and getting your amazon $5 or whatever card as soon as you get to your points? then if you wanted to save your amazon till chrismtas next year is that possible do they save for a long time???

SharonW December 30, 2010 at 7:01 pm

I always request my Amazon card (450 swabucks) every time I get to 450. Then I move the gift card to my Amazon account and let it sit. I don’t think there is an expiration date there. I let those sit in my Amazon account for quite a while and get as many as I can before I use them up. I think you could def put them there and wait to use them for Cmas presents! Glad you’re able to do swagbucks again finally!!!! :-)

MeganL December 30, 2010 at 6:39 pm

also.. i forget to ask you a while back at kroger in h-burg i had a negative balance (which i hadn’t had before) and they asked their manager and the manager told them to give me cash back ! is that what they were supposed to do? i don’t know but they asked their manager – so I took the money since the manager told the cashier to give it to me.

SharonW December 30, 2010 at 6:58 pm

Good for you! But…..I never get cash back. Technically they are not supposed to pay you. Although it does sometimes happen. I always grab a pack of gum or osemthing so I will always pay a little bit at least. Congrats on such a good shopping trip!

Kim January 7, 2011 at 9:13 pm

When is your next couponing beginners class in Danville?

SharonW January 8, 2011 at 7:33 am

Hi Kim,
I’m working on the date. Would you be interested in a morning class (around 10) or would an evening work best for you?
Glad you’re interested in getting started!

Missy January 3, 2012 at 7:34 pm

Hi, Sharon:

Just submitted an email via your contact form about a possible guest post.

Let me know.


SharonW January 3, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Just replied to you! Would love it!!!
