Old Stuff
1.)  ALDI does not accept coupons.
2.)  ALDI ads are regional and start and end dates vary, so you’ll want to make sure any competitive offers are available in your area before you attempt to price match.  I’m in Michigan and used zip 48329.

  • Mega Bloks First Builders 100 Piece Set  $10 (reg. $24.99)

Shopmium App: New Cash Back Savings Opportunity + Expiring Freebie Today!

Click to View Disclosure Statement



We have another new money saving program to add to Ibotta and Checkout 51.  It’s called Shopmium.  This one is similar, yet different, from both of those.   What makes it as attractive as Checkout 51 is that the offers can be redeemed from any store.  What makes it different is the way the offers are presented.  With that in mind, I want to take you step by step through signing up and the offer specifics.  That way, you’ll know what kind of offers you have and how much you’ll save.

First, you need the Shopmium app for your iPhone or Android phone.   You can download it here. When you open the app, you’ll be prompted to enter a referral code.  Be sure and enter the code GHEMFHQL to receive an exclusive offer for a free Lindt Chocolate Bar available only to those who enter a referral code.    

Once you’ve gotten set up, take a look at your offers.   They may vary from mine, but I’m going to use mine to show you the deal specific details.

First, I have an offer for Smuckers Fruit Spread.  Click on “Discover this product” to view the offer details.  As expected, I see the offer for $1 off any Smucker’s Fruit Spread (left photo).  Sounds easy enough.  And this one is.  If you notice, you’ll see an asterisk next to the last ‘f’ in the pink  $1 off area.  This clues you in that you need to read the fine print on this offer (right photo).  Always scroll down to read the fine print.  This will help you determine what kind of offer this is. As I said, this one is pretty straight forward and the offer is to save $1 off any Smucker’s Fruit Spread and it goes on to detail the specific types of spread included.  Below that, the dates of the offer are listed, which are ambiguous, in my opinion.  I can’t tell whether or not I need to buy it by 3/26 or 3/31.  In comparing this with other offers, the dates appear to be reversed, I think, so I’m sticking with 3/26 to be safe.


sun chips collage


Next,  I have an offer for SunChips 7oz+.  After I click on “Discover this product” again, I see that the offer is for Sun Chips “Get it for only $2″  with a suggested retail price of $3.29.  Now, if you scroll down to read the offer details, you’ll see that you’ll receive a bag of sun chips for $2 BUT the maximum rebate amount is $1.62.  That means that if you pick up a bag of Sun Chips for $3.99, you will pay $2.37.

And as you browse through your offers, you will continue to see this pattern.  Glade Customizables Starter Kits are 20% off with a max. value of $1.80 ~ which is beyond reasonable as this puts the reg. retail price at $9.




Last but certainly not least, I have an offer for a FREE M&M’s 1-2oz Pocket Bag (aka Single Pack) with a max. value of $1.50.  Yep, that’s a freebie all right. If you have this offer, you’ll likely have to be quick.  Mine expires TODAY, March 7th!



Oh, wait!  One more! I have an offer for $2 reimbursed on Nutella through today, too.  That makes it just $1.25 after cash back at Big Lots.  And yes, it’s a straight $2 off the purchase price offer meaning $2 cash back on a 13oz or 26.5oz jar.

When you redeem your offers, you’ll need to take photos of your receipts as usual, and you’ll receive your cash back via Paypal.

oikos french onion nutritional information

I LOVE this dip!  And since I do have it in the fridge, I can tell you that it has about half the fat of Heluva Greek French Onion Dip.  (Take a look if you’d like.) I use it to dip my Baked Lays Chips (among other low fat snacks) when I feel like I want some potato chips and dip.

Also, if you haven’t looked lately, there are quite a few good coupons for healthier foods like these:

Learn Our History: FREE DVD “One Nation Under God”! (Just Pay Shipping)

Click to View Disclosure Statement


Whether you’re a homeschooling family or would prefer your child have a more uplifting and faith based perspective on the history of the United States, this is a wonderful educational opportunity!



Governor Mike Huckabee, Co-Founder of Learn Our History, is co-creating a library of US history films for children that will cover important historical events, as well as people instrumental in the development and improvement of this nation – infused with God and positivity.

As an introduction to the series, you’ll receive the first DVD free and pay only $4.95 shipping.  I encourage you to view a  very moving free preview on the website to get a sense of what the series is like.  You’ll receive the DVD featured in the preview, One Nation Under God, just in time for the 4th of July!




With each and every episode, you’ll have access to free downloadable bonus timelines, discussion topics, biographies, quizzes, study guides, games and more.    This is an excellent supplement to traditional book learning.  My son’s understanding has always increased with educational videos as an additional learning tool, and this is no exception.

After you receive your first shipment, you’ll receive an email to let you know when your next shipment will be mailed.  If it interests you, do nothing.  If you’d like to skip it, you can do that as well.  It will not cancel your subscription.  I really cannot say enough about this subscription though.  We’ve accepted each shipment, and all have enhanced my son’s understanding of American History – and from a perspective  I feel good about.


Offer Details:
About once a month, they will send you an email letting you know when the next DVD in the series is scheduled to ship. If you want it, there’s nothing for you to do. You’ll receive a new Learn Our History DVD for just $11.95 plus $4.95 s&h billed conveniently to your credit card. If you don’t want it, you’ll have at least 10 days to respond by calling (877) US HISTORY to let them know that you do not want the selection offered.

You are under no obligation to purchase an additional DVD, and you understand that refusing a selection is not a cancellation. You may cancel at any time simply by calling Learn Our History, and you understand that unless you call Learn Our History to cancel, you will continue to receive a new Learn Our History DVD, complete with FREE streaming, about once a month. Sales tax will be added for sales where applicable. All charges will be conveniently billed to the credit card you provide.
