Zantac Coupon + Zantac Rebate = MONEYMAKER!

There is a $5 Zantac coupon here. You should be able to print this coupon twice. Most places (Walmart, Walgreens, etc.) have the 8 ct. boxes of Zantac for a little over $5 if not cheaper!

Kmart is running a promotion on Trio toys- buy any toy $9.99 and up and get $5 off that price. Plus, there is a $5 printable manufacturer coupon available here for ANY Trio toy priced at $10 or more!

I went by Kmart tonight to see what I could find in the way of the Trio toys because they looked like something my boys and nephew would enjoy. My Kmart have a very poor selection with only 3 Trio toys, so I ended up purchasing only 2 toys, but I still got a stellar deal. Here's the math:

Another Holiday Toy Stock Up Opportunity

Right now the Learning Curve online shop is offering up some sweet deals on Thomas the Train items! Plus, they have two different money-saving promotional codes to choose from! Follow these directions:

Go here and create an account with Learning Curve! It's free and only takes a second! You need to be logged in to your account to get the promotional codes below to work.

Check out all the clearance items that have available here.

Add a total of $40 or more in items to your cart (don't worry--you won't be paying even close too that much!) After you've done so, you'll need to start the checkout process. Once you get to the promotional code page enter WELCOME20 to get $20 off your order of $40 or more! Please keep in mind this promotional code will ONLY work if you're a new member. Your final cost will end up being as low as $20 + shipping! That's a pretty sweet deal, especially considering the retail cost of all the items purchased (before the sale price) would be well over $100!

However, if you don't want to spend that much money(like me!), then you can use this promotional code LCFRIEND and get 25% off your entire order! For example if you wanted to buy a few Thomas the Train products for $1.99, the 25% off code would bring the cost down to just $1.49 per train + shipping... that's not bad at all for Thomas the Train!Let me know what you all snag! Think Christmas, Birthdays and more... it's stock up time!
