Vegan Shopping Trip ~ January 28, 2015

This week at Kroger, there is a promotion that allows you to save $3.00 instantly when you buy 6 participating promotional items. I almost didn’t believe my eyes when I saw Gardein products in Kroger’s frozen clearance section, but I was able to get three products for only $1.37! I don’t have a picture for this week’s purchases because it is kind of a hassle to get everything in one shot.

Another Gardein Printable Coupon

Gardein Coupon

I know that I just posted a coupon for Gardein products, but there is another source that we can print a coupon for $1.00 off of any Gardin product. So, if you’re like me, then stock up on some Gardein products while you have coupons.

New Gardein Printable Coupon!

Gardein TrioOkay, I have recently been obsessed with trying Gardein products and I can’t wait to try another new product. To help out with my new obsession, I found that Gardein is offering a printable coupon for $1.00 off of any Gardein product. You can print the coupon twice per computer, which means even more Gardein treats. So, if you haven’t tried their products yet, why not print the coupon and try the products for $1.00 less! I have only tried three of their products and have been pleasantly surprised by how much I like them. I have tried the 7-Grain Chick’n Tenders, the Mandarin Orange Chick’n, and the Black Bean Chipotle Veggie Burger. I am wanting to try the new Fishless Fillets, but who knows what I will try next. Just click the blue link above to print the coupon.

Top Rebate Apps for Smartphones

Top smartphone app logosIf you have seen Ibotta mentioned before, then you probably know that it rebate apps can be very beneficial to save a little extra money. Having a smartphone can really make you some extra money when you use these apps. The way the apps work is when you buy a product that has a rebate available on any of the apps, you take a picture of your receipt through the app and, depending on the app, scan the bar-code of the products that you bought. Each of the apps listed below is slightly different, but the overall process is the same. You won’t receive a ton of money at one time, but the rebates really add up after a while, even the $0.25 rebates. The majority of the apps even have rebates available on generic or store brand products, including produce, which can be helpful in the long run. If you have a smartphone, try installing these apps and give them a try. It won’t take long to figure out how to use them, but you can always ask me a question if you need help operating them.
