Thanks to Shasta for the email letting us know about this great deal at Kroger… too bad I am not needing any tampons, they always seem to be free when I am pregnant 🙂
Many coupons float around the internet and get printed off innocently that are fraudulent. This is an example of the latest one this week. Sad to say it is a fake coupon and is NOT ok to use. Fabulessly Frugal did a great job explaining it all in the post below! (Thanks A Thrifty Mom!)
WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?
Coupon Fraud is punishable by law: prison terms have been served for 3-5 years with fines averaging $200,000.
The Store Does Not Get Paid: The store will not be reimbursed for a fraudulant coupons and they end up losing money.
Poor Coupon Ethics Ruins Couponing for EVERYONE.

So buying name a brand or a generic brand is a preference choice. What is the point of saving one dollar for a generic brand tissue if every time you blow your nose the tissue is hard and scratchy? When you run across items that you have no preference about, then try a generic brand and you will save some money.
Why is there a price difference at all? A lot of it has to do with the quality of products that are put into the item. A brand name tends to have a little bit higher quality of products than the generic version and is probably a little more diligent about quality control as well. While the generic may list the exact same ingredients, it may not be as good of quality which could affect the taste. You also do pay a little bit more money for the label that is a little more appealing. The generics cost is kept low by taking the frills away and just presenting you with a less flashy, less quality version for a lower amount of money. You should compare the ingredients of the generic and the name brand before buying. Make sure that they have the same ingredients and that the generic does not have more unhealthy ingredients than the generic.
My friend Kristen puts together a great list of all the Walmart and Target items for under $1 and FREE. Before you go to either place I suggest checking her list out! Remember that prices vary by region but it is worth checking! Go HERE for Walmarts list!
I was really excited about the Walgreens deal below… but Traci at Pennypinchingmama emailed me even a better deal! You can score them even cheaper at Target! Depending on my cashier, I might not be able to use the $2 printable along with the B1G1 although technically there is not reason why you can’t, some cashiers like to make up their own “rules” as they go!
