    ddalmas - I actually created a separate e-mail address (the one you see me post here all the time) just for that kind of stuff, and sites that require you to sign up for their e-mail list in order to be able to print their coupons, etc. You're right, though, you definitely can get inundated, but I try to make the most of the ones I get.

    ABC's "The Lookout" is doing a segment on couponing featuring the gals from the website (Heather & Joanie). I'm watching it now, and it's actually presenting a positive view of couponing. If you missed it, I'm sure ABC will have the video of it on their website.

    With the saving star classico save $5 when you spend $15, will they go by the original price or the BOGO price for the $15?

    DianeNC - I'm registered with all of those sites, but must have opted out of the e-mails at some point because I don't receive them. I prefer fewer e-mails even if it means missing out on a few freebies. Thanks for the explanations!

    ddalmas - the other site that also gives away free samples every month is They'll be giving away the Nature Valley Soft Baked Oatmeal Square on August 20, so you'll want to register with them before then. (If they operate the way Box Tops For Eduction does, you'll receive an e-mail with a link in it on August 20 that will take you to a page on their website to enter your info for the free sample.)

    I found this info, plus a lot more (too many freebies to post here) at, if that helps at all.

    For example:

    Dollar Tree and Dollar Stores have Garnier Fructis Shampoo (3.4 oz.) for $1.00. has a $1.00 coupon for any Garnier Fructis Shampoo, Conditioner, or Treatment, making it free.

    moo - that reminds me, my local HT also said they would accept the $5.00 off $25 coupons that Food Lion mailed out recently, as well.

    I asked today and the manager at my HT said that they will accept the Kroger coupons ($5 off $50) that are in the Go, Play, Save books that all the elementary schools are selling.
