Welcome to an irreverent, not-at-all comprehensive blog about my couponing exploits in Montgomery County, Maryland, with some annoying cats sprinkled about. Try not to step on them; they get ever so cross. Also there may be some law stuff here and there, but not too much, because most law stuff is boring.

Awesome Ibotta deals at Target, plus cheap Lean Pockets!




In the past week I've made a couple of trips to Target, a store I normally avoid due to past issues with using coupons and rude cashiers and whatnot. But with the help of Ibotta and coupons (and halfway decent cashiers for once - yeah, I'm bitter), I've managed to score some amazing deals during my last two trips. There are some great bonuses at the moment on Ibotta for Target Store Extra deals that make the frozen foods I purchased pretty much free. Also, I received full credit for my B2G1 Hot/Lean Pockets coupons, and by combining them with the Buy 4 Get 1 Free sale going on right now, I got the pockets for almost free as well! I've also started using Target Cartwheel, which gives you tiny savings on up to 4 like products that are featured in the deals you've chosen for your shopping list (you initially are only allowed 10 deals at a time). Between remembering Cartwheel, mobile coupons, paper coupons, and Ibotta... my head hurts, you guys.

ANYWHO, I went to Target initially late last week to do the first set of Ibotta deals, then did part 2 of the Target bonus deal (which had to be done on a different day) today along with some other deals. Unfortunately, some coupons are now gone. I've tried to put substitutes wherever I could find one.

Here's what I did:
