Albertsons and Redbox Catalina

Starting tomorrow at Albertsons (through 12/10), when you purchase $20 worth of P&G products in a single transaction you will get a $5 catalina AND 5 Redbox one night movie rentals (promo codes that won't expire until 1/31/10)!

Thank you reader Kristen and HCW!

Hopefully we'll have the sneak peak very soon! In the mean time, I'd be scouring the P&G insert (from 11/29) and picking out your favorite items. Hopefully this sale will coincide with many of the coupons from that insert!!

Go check your fave stores online - chances are they have their Cyber Monday sale going on right now!

I would suggest stopping by Ebates first to see if the store you want to shop at is listed with their site. They will not only have coupon codes, you'll also get double and in some cases, TRIPLE the cash back of what they usually do! If you haven't signed up for Ebates, and you're planning on shopping online - make a little money and sign up!!

Here are just a few I've seen so far...

Old Navy & Gap - use promo code MONDAY at check out to receive 20% off your entire purchase plus FREE SHIPPING! Don't forget to go through Ebates to get an additional 10% cash back! (You can read all about how to do Ebates here).

Amazon - has their Cyber Monday Lightening Deals that will start at 12:00 AM PST. There are other Cyber Monday deals going though... If you're wanting a particular item, I would check at Amazon first, as they are beating a lot of prices and there are THOUSANDS of items that qualify for free shipping! (Or you can upgrade to Amazon Prime - free trial right now by the way,

Like this - who wouldn't want their very own 15" Bella Doll? I just had to post this because I think it is so dang funny!!

Seriously??? Who would want that!? Heck - if you do, buy it now because you'll save $50.00! Man, that is too funny. She's even got a cast.
