It was time for an oil change. After making an appointment with our dealership, I used a ValPak coupon and paid for the service with our Owner Advantage Rewards. This amounted to a FREE oil change! Savings $38.78
Our front loading washing machine was acting up, stopping mid-cycle and displaying an error code. A quick internet search gave my husband instructions to fix the problem. I don’t want to think about how much we would have paid someone to come out and fix it. Savings $85-150
My husband and I had a rare moment where we were able to have lunch together. We used a Buy One Get One 50% Off coupon from our local paper to make this treat more affordable. Savings $2.25
I snagged a Living Social deal for $5 for $10 worth of food at Quiznos. That will come in handy when we’re in town and want to stop for a quick and CHEAP lunch. Savings $5
Christmas is right around the corner and I’m just now starting to round up presents. Amazon offered a great deal on a full set of Harry Potter DVDs earlier this week. I was able to use some of the Amazon gift cards I earned from SwagBucks to purchase this set. Savings $60
We’re in the habit of paying cash for gas since our local station offers a 6 cent a gallon discount for cash paying customers. Savings $1.15
Our local farmer’s market printed a $2 off coupon valid at any vendor. My daughter and I like go to the market a few times a month and this coupon went toward her beloved loaf of banana bread. Savings $2
Last but not least, I saved 50% at CVS buying Allegra D, body wash, hand soap and toothpaste. Regular retail was $29.89. Savings $14.37
Total savings this week: $216.89 … which is enough to cover the electric bill!
