Crayola Coupons and Rebates - thru 12/31/12

Crayola Coupons - these change every week, but this week it is $4 off Crayola Digitools AND $2 off ANY Crayola purchase totalling $19.97 or more!

Crayola Rebates - you can get a rebate on EACH item listed - but only 1 per item - must turn in receipt with purchase date before 12/31/12 and UPC from package - so keep that in mind if the item is a gift:)

If  you bought the Toys R Us groupon (NO LONGER AVAILABLE)- you can stack the rebate and maybe the coupons to get items near or at FREE! (I am unsure if Toys r Us take printed coupons - if you try, let me know!)

If you find a GREAT deal using these coupons/rebates - please let me know so we can share it!

Printed coupons can be used at most stores - Walmart, Drugstores, Office Max - I do not believe our local Kmart takes printed coupons...Rebate can be applied to any purchase anywhere...

You can print each coupon TWICE per computer - hit the back button in your browser...

Even if you are not ready to purchase any deals today, make sure you Sign up for emails and they will send you discount codes to buy a $25 gift certificate for $10 or LESS!

What is the Catch? NONE - really...
Catch is there is a minimum to spend at the restaurant (usually $35 for a $25 gift cert) so your out of pocket is $10 at the restaurant and whatever you paid for the gift certificate!  I know with  a family we always spend at least that!

1) You can print (or show on phone) right away - so buy it right before you leave!
2) Gift certificates NEVER expire
3) TONS of local restaurants are on the list - over 80 of them!

A few of my favorites:

Smilie's - Dot's Diner - Marigny Brasserie - Cafe Degas - Steamboat Natchez - Oceana Grill

Vistaprint and Why you will LOVE all the FREEBIES!

It amazes me so that so many people still don't know about VISTAPRINT!  So here is what you need to know:

Personalized Tote Bags
 It is the BEST place to order invitations, business cards, gift tags for presents, return address labels, banners, yard signs, and much, much more!

The BEST part...wait for it...most everything is FREE!

So it works like this -
1) Click HERE to get started!
2) Once you sign up for an account, Vistaprint will send you emails with special offers on what is FREE at that time!
3) While you are waiting for the email, browse around and play with it - my kids EACH have their own gift tags - we have one for the whole family, one at Christmas time - business cards (250 at a time) - and I NEVER pay for any of them!

GROUPON has a deal for Vistaprint currently - $17 for $70 worth of Vista product - this is good to use when NOT buying freebies (like when you have to order 50 bday invitations, etc!)
Gift Tags

I just ordered my kids party invitations - I always have a custom banner made for each party and paid nothing:)

THE CATCH? You just have to pay shipping - here are a few tips:
1) Read the fine print at bottom of Vistaprint email to tell you how many free things you can purchase at once (no more than 10 freebies per order)...make sure to add as many FREE things to your basket as possible! Why not? It's FREE
Notepads personalized for each teacher!

2) The shipping cost will go down if you have at least ONE paid item in your basket with all your freebies - so add something cheap - like custom sticky notes - and watch the shipping drop! I have never paid more than $10-15 for shipping and considered all the FREE stuff you get for that cost, it is a SUPER DEAL!

Trust me you will love it - so what are you waiting for? GO GO GO!!!
