Teacher coupons, just in time for the holidays.
If you’re into teacher coupons, I know you’ll want to know about an article we featured a few days ago, School Supplies — X4 Your Cash.
So, we asked our resident Coupon Guru, Linda O’Reilly, the Chief Financial Officer at SimpleK12, to share a few quick tips about using coupons for the holidays. So, this is not just teacher coupons any more… we’re going to save you a load of dough in your personal life as well!
These apply directly to teachers in Florida and other areas of the Southeast, but look for similar things in your own local area as these things tend to be the same with different providers.
Here’s Linda’s report:
If you’re getting ready to start your grocery shopping for the holidays or for donations, here’s a heads up on several ways to save over the next several days and week:s
If you take a newspaper in an area with Winn Dixie, heads up as they’re running great coupons. And, you can use these often at local grocery store competitors.
And, attached to the front of our local paper (Orlando, Florida) was a $5 off $30 purchase for Aldi’s. I’m not sure if this can be used at Publix (I’ve tried before and it was hit or miss on whether they would take them), but it can obviously be used at Aldi’s
Also in this week’s Publix ad on the front page, there is a $10 off Gas Card purchase when you spend at least $50 at Publix. This is a great way to help lower your grocery bill.
In this Sunday’s upcoming local newspaper, the Target ad will include a coupon for a $10 Target gift card when you spend $50 in groceries. If you don’t get the paper, you can also text the word “Food” to 827438 on your smartphone or iOS device and get back a mobile version of this coupon which can be used at Target Only (this should be available probably late Saturday). This coupon is valid from Sunday, 11-15 to Saturday, 11-21. You should be able to use the print version of the coupon at Publix to get a $10 Publix gift card.
Just a reminder that if you use any of these coupons at Publix, your total pretax grocery bill needs to meet the minimum spending level included in the coupon BEFORE you use any other coupons. Make sure you hand over your “$x off when you $xx purchase” coupons FIRST before you hand over any other coupons. Then you can reduce your total even further with any coupons you have for the items you buy.
