Regal and Cinemark Theaters - cheapo tickets this summer for kids! Here's the scoop:
Regal Cinemas, United Artists, and Edwards Theatres (though Regal is the only one I know of in this area - Arboretum and Stonecrest are participating) are offering select G and PG movies for only $1 of Tuesday and Wednesdays at 10:00 am this summer! Looks like it doesn't kick off until June 12th here in Charlotte, but check here for your city/start date! A portion of the proceeds will go to the Will Rogers Institute.
Cinemark Theaters is offering something similar as well! You can pay $1 at the box office, or if you purchase 10 show tickets in advance, you pay a total of $5 (only $.50 per movie)!!! There are no theaters here in Charlotte that are participating, but I know I have some readers from my home town of Monroe, LA - and the Cinemark theater there is participating!

Thanks to Hip2save for the reminder about this wonderful summer program!!!

Harris Teeter Reminders

Just a little friendly reminder to get to Harris Teeter by 
May 22nd (Tuesday) to take advantage of Triple Coupons!!!

Also, starting today and running through Sunday, 
you get 20% off any mix and match case of wine 
AND 20% off specialty cheeses!

FWIW: My favorite new wine is Contempo Merlot! 
It's recently been reduced to $9.99/bottle (originally $15.99)
Buy 12 bottles @ $9.99 = $119.88
Get 20% off this weekend = $23.97 discount
Pay $95.91 for 12 bottles of wine that originally would have cost $191.88!!!

SavingStar Incentives

SavingStar (e-coupon service) is offering up 
two special incentives!

The first is for Huggies products! Here are the details: Now through June 13, 2012 get $5.00 back when you spend $35.00 on any HUGGIES® Diapers, Baby Wipes and LITTLE SWIMMERS® Swimpants. Offer does not include GOODNITES® Brand and PULL-UPS® Brand products.

You can pair this deal with the Huggies Promotion at Rite Aid next week for a pretty sweet deal! Rite Aid is offering $10 Up+ Reward on any $30 Huggies purchase. So, you could do the following:

Buy 3 packages of diapers @ $11 each (approximate cost)
Buy 1 package of wipes @ $2.99
Total: $35.99
Use three $1.50/1 Manufacturer Coupons  for diapers (they are floating around out there - might have to do some digging)
Use $.50/1 Manufacturer Coupon for Wipes
Pay $30.99
Get back $10 Up+ Rewards Cash
Get $5 deposited into SavingStar Account
Net Paid: $15.99 for 3 packages of diapers and 1 package of baby wipes!

The 2nd Promotion they're running is on Snyders of Hanover products! Now through the end of May 2012, get $5.00 when you spend $15.00 on any Snyder's of Hanover Pretzels. This offer expires on May 31, 2012.

Proportionally, this is a much better incentive! Although, the only coupon I could find to possibly pair with this deal, is on the Earth Fare website. If you go here and scroll down about 1/2 way - you'll see a Manufacturer Coupon for 75¢ off any Snyder's of Hanover 16 oz Pretzel or Tortilla Chip product. However, it also says in small print above the bar code "Redeemable only at Earth Fare stores". So this is a question I don't have the answer to at this point: If it is a MF Coupon, you should be able to use it anywhere. But since it says only redeemable at Earth Fare, that may nullify the before mentioned "rule". I would say that you could try to use it - and then be prepared to have it turned away - but I don't want to promote fraudulent use of coupons. So if anyone out there reading this (Hollie???) knows the answer, please help! If you can use the coupon - this would be a great week to use it at Harris Teeter with triple coupons! You could get the following deal:

Buy 6 bags of Snyder's of Hanover Pretzels or Chips @ $2.99 (estimate only) = $17.94
Use 6 75¢ MF Coupons (may have to print from several printers) - which will triple to $2.25 each = $13.50
Pay $4.44
Get $5 back in your SavingStar Account
Net Pay: $0 + 66¢ Money Maker!!!

**Make sure to have your Harris Teeter VIC number and your Rite Aid Wellness card number entered into your SavingStar Account - so it can track your purchases! If you're unfamiliar with SavingStar - click here to find out more!

Charmin and Bounty Deals at HT!!!

Woohoo! Harris Teeter has Bounty and Charmin on eVIC special this weekend (only Saturday for the Bounty)! Here's what you need to do:

Charmin 9 pack Mega Roll  - $7.77 each (normally around $12)
Load $1.00 eVIC coupon 
Use 25¢ Manufacturer Coupon (will double to 50¢) - from the 4/29 P&G
Pay $6.22 each

Note: Mega Rolls claim to be the equivalent to 4 regular rolls. That means that a 9 pack is the equivalent to 36 regular rolls, which means each roll is about 17¢. Most serious couponers stock up when they can get it for 25¢ or less per roll, so this is a fantastic deal! You can buy two packages at the discounted price!

Bounty 8 Giant Rolls - $8.77 (SATURDAY ONLY)
Load $1.00 eVIC coupon 
Use 25¢ Manufacturer Coupon (will double to 50¢) - from the 4/29 P&G
Pay $7.22 each

Note: 8 Giant Rolls are equivalent to 12 regular size rolls - which is like paying 60¢ per roll! Pretty good deal for Bounty! You can get 2 at the discounted price, but ONLY on Saturday.

Hoarding Note: I'm trying to decide if I'm going to do the Bounty Deal. I'll definitely do the Charmin because my supply is getting low (as in non-existent). But I have a 12 Giant Roll  Pack and 6 regular rolls of Bounty in my stockpile. By my calculations (and we use A LOT of paper towels) - I already have about a 1 year supply of Bounty . . . This is such a great deal, but considering I already have more than my 6 months worth of supplies that I shoot for, I should probably pass this one up!

One more deal you may be interested in:
Honey Nut Cheerios - $1.97 - buy 2
Use $1/2 Coupon (from or Swagbucks)
Load 50¢ eVIC Coupon 
Pay $2.44 for 2 boxes or $1.22 each

Starbucks 1/2 Price Happy Hour

So, I'm a little behind on getting this one out, but there are still 5 days (including this one) to get in on this deal! Though I'm not a huge fan of Starbuck's hot coffee, I do LOVE their Frappuccinos (you can even order them sugar free and decaf)! From now until May 13th, from 3:00 - 5:00 pm - you can get any size Frappuccino for 1/2 off! That's a pretty good deal - considering that even their smallest size is about $3.50! 

Want a way to stack a deal? Use your Viggle points to get a $5 Starbucks card (only 7,500 points). Then go to Starbucks during Happy Hour! You should be able to get 3 Tall Frappuccinos with your free $5 gift card!!! Now that's what I call a great deal! Don't forget to tip your Barista! :-)

Don't know what Viggle is? Check out this post for the scoop!

Some Interesting Deals

Are you familiar with this brand? I've seen it at a specialty children's boutique here in Charlotte, but I've only ever bought one item (on clearance) because it is pretty pricey! Well, if you go to the Tea-Baby website here, and enter code PLUMBABY50 at checkout - you can get a whopping 50% off your entire order! I did a mock order just to make sure it works - and it is super simple! Shipping is $7.00, or free is you order $150+! This would be a great way to get some super special/high quality items for a baby gift!!!

Lets-Pour Wine
So this is kind of a fun little deal-site that is for wine and beer! When you first sign up (through Facebook Connect) you can spin the wine bottle for discounts. They also have a few built-in discounts:  

Also, when you sign-up through this link, you'll get $10 off your first purchase of $45 or more! 
So, you could get 5 bottles of Wine Enthusiast Best Buy - 2009 Castillo de Monseran Carinena for only $10/bottle (normally priced at $20)!  
5 x $10 = $50 
- $10 discount for signing up
Total: $40 and FREE SHIPPING (for $100 worth of wine)

Been waiting for a super good reason to give Netflix a try? Well, you've got it! Plum District is offering $15 Plum Dollars (that's money that you can apply to deals on Plum District) for signing up for a free 30 day Netflix Trial! The best deal I've seen previous to this was 1,000 SB for signing up - but that only translates to about $10 in gift cards. So, this is definitely a higher value! Absolutely no out-of-pocket expense to you (unless you decide to continue your Netflix membership beyond the 30 day trial) AND you make $15! That's pretty cool! If you're not a Plum District member yet, go here to sign-up! It's also free! :-) 

Harris Teeter - Super Simple Laundry Detergent Deal
Gain Laundry Detergent (32 load size) is on sale for $4.99. Load the $1.00 eVic coupon to your account AND use a $1.00 paper manufacturer coupon. Total will be $2.99! It's rare to find Gain for that price!!!

eVIC Special at Harris Teeter

I just got notification from Harris Teeter that starting tomorrow (May 4th), they will have Barefoot wine for only $3.97/bottle! This special will only be available May 4th - 8th. This isn't my favorite "cheap" wine - but it is a great wine for parties - particularly the Chardonnay! You can only get 4 bottles, but here is an idea on how to stack savings - even on wine!

Buy 4 bottles of Barefoot Wine (normally $6.99/bottle) @ $3.97 = $15.88
Buy 2 bottles of Rex Goliath Wine @ $5.99 = $11.98
Total = $27.86
Get a 10% half-case discount = -$2.78
Pay $25.08 
(would normally be $36 with the 1/2 case discount)

That comes out to an average of only $4.18/bottle!

Here and There

Harris Teeter is offering another P&G Promotion! 
When you spend $40 IN ONE TRANSACTION on P&G items, you can submit your receipt through a mail-in rebate for a $10 Visa Prepaid Card! Keep in mind, this is BEFORE coupons are tendered! Purchases must be made in a single transaction and between the dates of May 2nd - May 8th, and must be postmarked by May 15th. Not sure what P&G distributes? Tide, Downy, Cascade, Dawn, Pampers, Gain, Gillette, Duracell, Bounty, NyQuill, Puffs, Always, Swiffer, Tampax, Charmin, and LOTS of others. So take a look at your Harris Teeter sales on these products, make sure your eVIC coupons are loaded, and see if you can find some paper manufacturer coupons as well! It's not hard to reach $40 before coupons!
