The Fragrance Collection by Glade

Looks like print limit is reached on website, sorry.
If you really want some candles and have some $1 coupons from the inserts, you can still do the Walgreens/Rebate deal.

Also, there are "Buy any Glade Scented Oil candles holder and get a refill pack FREE (up to $3.99) exp 1/31/10" blinkies in FoodLion by the candles. You could buy 2 tins and get the two refills free to meet the rebate.

This game provided by Glade allows you to play a game to try to win a candle, and allows you access to $3.50 coupon.

Right now Walgreens has the 4.5 oz soy candles for $3.99, AND these qualify for SC Johnson $5 rebate. Soooo, buy 3 of these candles and use 3 coupons and get all for $1.47 and get back $5 rebate (takes 6 weeks) = $3.53 MM (money maker).

On a side note....I always get this question

"How do you save so much money on groceries? There are never coupons for the things that I like."

Answer: As a hard-core couponer, it's really hard to be brand-loyal. If you have a list of a few certain items that you HAVE to have, then you can get away with that. For the most part, the coupons and specials available to me dictate what I buy. When something that I really love puts out a coupon or goes on sale, I will sometimes buy some coupons online (ebay) to have in the future (pending expiration date). You can get 10 coupons for about $1, that are worth $10-$25 in value.

I always buy yogurt, but I buy whatever is on sale and has a coupon. Never pay more than $1 for a 6-pack of YoPlait YoPlus or Activia (these two always have coupons out), and during super doubles they're only pennies. I stock up on staples (pasta, rice, beans, can goods, etc.) when it's on sale AND has a coupon.

Buying whatever is on sale also allows for me to mix it up a bit. I love to cook, and making meals out of what I can get on sale is the most fun of it. It makes going out to eat hard, because we'll pay for two date-nights out what I spend on groceries in a month.

Feel free to post any questions that you may have!
