New and coupons out for May!

Remember to go to and check out the sweet May coupons now available - including $1 off one box coupons for many, many Kellogg's cereals, limit 2 per Windows-run computer. Crystal Paine of Money Saving Mom posted a cool tip yesterday for how to get a second link to a new 'batch' of Kellogg's coupons, too! Coupons are often limited in number, so print the ones you want today!

Have you loaded your batch of May upromise coupons? I just did - and $45.95 worth of May coupons - potential upromise account credit - is now linked to my loyalty cards, just in case I snag some coupon deals with them. If you have store loyalty cards (CVS, Giant, Safeway, Shopper's Food Warehouse, Wegmans, Harris Teeter, Food Lion, anybody?) - then you can tie your loyalty card to your upromise accounts. Just sign into, make sure that your loyalty card numbers are tied to your upromise accounts, and go to 'Earn Rewards' in the top menu bar, and click 'e-Coupons'. You can select all of the coupons and load them for May.

You do not get the discounts right away for having loaded these coupons - the 'savings' is loaded instead to your upromise account when you purchase selected items with the store loyalty cards whose numbers you've added to your upromise account. The coupons are very often for the same items heavily promoted in Sunday inserts and store weekly ads, so if you are a couponer, odds are good that you may find yourself buying items that are on the upromise monthly e-Coupons lineup. (Still present in the May e-Coupons: Johnsonville Sausage, Post Cereal Coupons, Huggies...sounding familiar?)

Yes - it is a small amount, but something is better than nothing, and this is a painless way to add some college savings in just a couple of minutes. Think about it: you'd kick yourself if you later realized that the CVS "Free After ExtraCare Bucks" item(s) you purchased would also have given you a couple of bucks in your upromise account just because your store loyalty card numbers and coupons would have been pre-loaded. And remember that purchasing certain participating products with your store loyalty card every day (even without e-Coupons!) will add slowly but surely to your upromise accounts, so go get your account up and running! :)
