A Target Coupon Reminder

I share this in my classes but wanted to take a minute to remind everyone that the Target coupons can be printed in the store...saving you tons of ink and paper. Go to the gift registry kiosk by customer service and select "shop", from there click on "weekly sales ad" and then "coupons" you can print your coupons directly from the store. You can also check out the "What's New at Target" section for even more printable deals.

Remember that not only can Target coupons be used at Target but also at Publix and Kroger as competitor's coupons. Be sure to check with your local store for their coupon policy as some stores do not accept Target coupons unless there is a Super Target close by. The best way to know is to ask at the customer service desk of your local store!

Hope this helps!!!
Happy Shopping~

Check out these Businesses!!!

Hi Everyone...
I wanted to share with you 2 businesses that I have found this past week.
The first business is owned by friends of mine and they are offering a much needed service here in town. This is a super family owned and operated business, please spread the word and show your support. Be sure to check out Spring Hill Delivery...and tell them you saw them on the Faithful & Frugal blog!

We are pleased to announce the opening of Spring Hill Delivery! For those of you who don't know about us, we offer home delivery of food from several of our local restaurants. You can go to our website at to see our participating restaurants and find answers to all of your questions. We begin service this Tuesday at 5pm. We will be open daily from 5:00pm to 9:00pm! You may order directly on our website or phone us at 615-261-3233 to place your order. We accept cash, Visa/MasterCard (credit or debit) and checks on approval.

We are having a "soft" opening for the first few weeks so that we can work out any kinks and decide what our staffing levels need to be. That means we are depending on "word of mouth" between our friends to advertise. Please forward this email to your email contact list. Your opinions are very welcome and will help us change procedures to better serve our customers.

Our normal delivery charge will be $5.95 plus 15% gratuity but for now we will only charge you $5.00 plus the tip. All of the prices on our menus are what the restaurants charge so for an additional $5.00, you will pay exactly the same as if you went out to eat but without the 1 hour wait at Olive Garden or packing everyone up in the car.
Thank you for your help in spreading our message and we look forward to serving you!

~The second is a business that I checked out this past week and really liked.
It's called Super Buys and is located in the Wall Street Shopping Center next to Asuka.
This store is great...they offer open box items at big discounts...Most items are $20-$50 less than a regular store...AND they offer a return policy on all items, the owners are super nice and never want you to not be happy with their products.
What can you find at Super Buys:
Wii, Playstation and Xbox consoles & games & controllers
Plasma & LCD TVs
Computers, Cameras, MP3 and MP4 players
Kid's toys and games...and much, much more!!!!
Go check them out and tell them you heard about them on the Faithful & Frugal blog ;-)

Sunday Paper Update & Important Info

1) Okay, so the Sunday papers did not contain a bonus insert...they did contain 2 Smartsource, 2 Redplums (the one that says Unilever is put out by Valassis who is owned by Redplum) and 1 P&G insert. A great week for coupons!
**Keep in mind that next Sunday is a holiday and there will be no coupon inserts in the papers**

It also appears that Daily's no longer has the $0.99 Sunday papers. Hopefully Walgreens or another store will start offering them at a discounted rate soon. If I find the papers anywhere for less than the typical $1.75, I will let you all know.

2) I went to Kroger yesterday (I was running behind on this week's deals) and was VERY disappointed to learn that they are no longer taking any type of competitor's coupon for money off total purchase...IE: $5 off $50, $3 off $20, etc. They will continue to accept comp. coups for individual items...but not for money off total. That is a real bummer! The manager I talked with stated that they never should have accepted them and tried to tell me that they never have, to which I politely explained that was not the case and they had been accepting them for 1 1/2 years with NO problem. She insisted that they should not have. Bottom more money off total coupons!!! :-(

3) Spoke to the manager at Publix again today...he is such a great guy! He has been working with me really hard on fixing the out of stock problem that had been occurring over the last 6-8 weeks. After I talked with him about the class and the coupon/ad match ups, he immediately went to work on ordering more popular items. I have noticed a huge improvement. I have not left Publix with a rain check in 2 weeks! YEAH! Before that it was common to leave with 5-8 rain checks and that stinks. So hats off to Publix for teaming up with us to resolve this issue!!!

I also verified with him what competitor's coupons he will accept at the Spring Hill store:

Food Lion

So don't take CVS, Wags, Rite Aid, HG Hill or GFS coupons in there expecting that they will honor them...that would be cheating and that is just not right!
Knowing the coupon policy BEFORE you go in is key to getting the best deals.

4) As you know, I work very closely with the local store managers and they have been a great asset to Faithful & Frugal. However, I have gotten some reports from them lately that they have seen an increase in coupon shoppers breaking the rules...for example using expired coupons, coupons that are not for the specified item/size, improper stacking and customers using coups that they know aren't accepted but they know that a paticular cashier will take them. Now, I do not think for one moment that any of these shoppers are Faithful & Frugal alum, however I felt it important to just post a reminder of my position on couponing since our readership is increasing. PLEASE remember that as F&F alum we are always representing God...especially during our shopping trips. There is always someone watching us to see if we are "one of those" coupon shoppers. The one thing I stress to store managers is that we are women of integrity and that while we DO take advantage of great deals, we DO NOT cheat the system. And that is why they are so willing to work with us, because they know that their store will not loose money on people like us. Because couponing has become so popular within the last few months, I am seeing blogs popping up everywhere...some of them even encourage the "take what you can get free, even if it's wrong" mentality...that is certainly not our position! And keep in mind that it only takes a few rotten apples to spoil the whole if we want great coupon deals to remain, we must continue to shop properly.
So, just as a reminder...please continue putting God first in your shopping experience and as a result you will always maintain integrity and honor in your frugal shopping!

Publix Mystery Item 4/5/09

The Publix mystery Penny Item is: Publix white bread

Remember, you must have at least $10 BEFORE coupons to get the penny item. Penny item is only available on Sunday and Monday.

NEW COUPONS: Be sure to pick up a few of the "Go Organic" books next to customer service. And also the new Publix Advantage Buy flyer (the yellow one) on the rounder rack with the weekly sales ads.

More updates later...until then...
Wishing you blessed shopping!!!


Be sure to buy extra papers this week, this are some great coupons out there. PLUS this week we get 2 Smartsource, 2 Redplum AND 1 P&G insert...there is also talk of a bonus insert. I haven't been to get my papers yet this morning but will update later on that.

I will be uploading this week's shopping later today...check back tonight for pics ;-)
