My Living Room Furniture Deal and How I Saved More

Capture

 

I want to share something with you very quickly today.  If you’re planning to buy new furniture in the near future, I hope it’ll be useful to you and help you save some money.  It saved me nearly two hundred dollars on the same set I could purchase at two different places!

When we moved into our house, we needed a new set of living room furniture.  Bargain hunter that I am, I wanted a really good deal, but I didn’t want another set from Big Lots…which is usually the lowest price option when they have a 20% coupon.  My store only ever has brown furniture, though.  I’m so tired of chocolate brown.  Not to mention, all of it seems…oversized.  If you have a small room or just don’t like bulky furniture, that’ll drive you insane as well.  I don’t mind it, necessarily, but it wasn’t what I was interested in buying.  I had decided to make a change and I started with Value City Furniture.  They often have very low priced  furniture sets. Obviously, I have small kids who are hard on furniture, so I didn’t want to pay a lot.  It didn’t take me long to find a few that I liked well.  Yay, me!  From there, I went to the Art Van Clearance Center.  I found a Carson rocker/recliner there for $177.  And then, I looked around some more online.  Here’s what I found:

The Trocadero 3 Piece Living Room Set(shown above) at Furniture.com for $1139.97.

My semi-eagle eye noticed that this is exactly the same as the Stoked 3 Piece Set at Value City Furniture for $1139.97.

The difference?  A coupon paired with free delivery.  Sold!  Now, they’re not offering the exact deal that I got right now.  It typically coincides with big holiday sales, but they do have a discount offer now if you’re looking.

Through today (8/31) Furniture.com is offering 20% off a furniture purchase with the code 20LABORDAY.  Delivery applies.  When I made my purchase, delivery was free and I had a coupon.  You’ll want to wait for this if you can.  Believe me, I will let you know the next time that pairing is available.

Value City Furniture is currently offering free delivery.  This can vary considerably.  Depending on the distance of a store from your home and the amount you’re spending, you can likely save quite a bit.  But not better than 20% and free delivery.

So, here’s the current breakdown as well as the total I paid with both discounts:

This is my cart at Furniture.com for the furniture I bought (currently 20% discount, but no free delivery):

What I paid when I purchased with the double discount:

$1036.11  – They were offering free delivery and a 20% discount as well.  If you have time on your side and can wait for the combo, it’s the best deal.  If you need to purchase sooner, depending on the amount you plan to spend, you’ll score a better deal with Furniture.com and a 20% savings offer.  Every little bit helps, so make sure you’re maximizing your savings wherever you can!

Best Deal Mags is one of my favorite places to get discounted magazine subscriptions. Whenever they have a deal like this, I always take advantage of it and extend my current subscriptions. Today only (8/31), they’re discounting a one year subscription to one of my favorites, Every Day with Rachael Ray, to $4.49. I love her quick, inexpensive meals I can pull together at the last minute.

Be sure and use the code 15SS0906 when you check out to take an additional 15% off your purchase. That makes a one year subscription $3.82.

CVS: Freebies & Cheapies 8/30-9/5!

 

Latest News

 

There are new total purchase ($3/$15, $5/$25, $6/$30) and % off coupons again this week!  If you haven’t, check your email for one from CVS on Thursday!

  Let me know what Big Red coupons you receive and I’ll add them to the matchups! 

 

General Information

This list is printable!

Here are some easy use notes for you.

You’ll see a check box next to the sale item.  You can check that box and it will add it to your printable list box in the bottom right corner of your screen.  When you’ve added all the items you want to buy to the list, you can click on the *My List* tab to print them.

CVS has also released a new corporate coupon policy.  Make sure you print a copy and take it with you when you shop.  If this is new to you, you can read more about the changes to Buy One Get One Free sales and coupons HERE. 

Keep in mind that CVS ads can be extremely regional.  You may find price variations in the sale items or they may not be on sale in your area at all.

I am now ONLY using online prices in my match-ups. I had been using my actual store prices, but that proved equally frustrating for many people. While I realize that online prices are also frustrating, they’re relatively accurate for some. Since they’re about the same in that regard, it’s easier to use online prices! For new items not yet in their online store, I will continue to use my store prices.

This list includes all the items under $1, most of the ECB deals and many, MANY more.  Because I’m still doing most of the ad,  every link isn’t tested, as I don’t buy everything that’s on sale and I’m too cheap to waste the ink. Let me know if one doesn’t work, if my math has taken a nose dive or I’ve missed a coupon somewhere.

Walmart: Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Rock-A-Stack $5 + Free In Store Pickup!

Capture

 

If you’ve been around here a while, you know my two older children have birthdays that we celebrate on Labor Day weekend since they’re one day apart and usually fall on that weekend.  Well, this year we’re not having a big party.  For one thing, it’s too cool to do any fun water activities outside, and the kids would rather go to an indoor water park for a couple of nights.  Works for me!  So instead of shopping for toys and things for the big kids, I’m looking for toys for tiny.  She’s getting bored staring at the few things we have for her.

A week or so ago, I spotted this for $5 at Amazon.  It went fast, before I even bought one, and now it’s around $10-$11.  Today, I spotted the very same deal at Walmart for $5 with free in-store pickup, so I snatched one up quickly.  I’m guessing it was a price war item.  Oh goody…

Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Rock-A-Stack $5 + Free In Store Pickup.

 

Walmart: K-Cup Pod Sample Pack Freebie!

Tiny and I are doing some shopping this morning online and we stumbled across some very good deals at Walmart!  We’ll see how far I get today (not very, I’m guessing), but I know I can get through this one.

As I was searching around for clothes for my son, I saw a freebie!   Walmart has a nifty back-to-college k-cup pod sample pack offer.  You do not need to be a college student to request this offer.

Details: US only.  Must be over 18.   Allow 3-4 weeks for delivery.
