Two Easy Ways To Save On Diapers

Luvs image 3

This post was made possible by iConnect and Luvs.  I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.

Those with little ones know that diapers are one of the most expensive monthly purchases new parents have which is why little made me more excited than finding a coupon for this necessity. Luvs is offering opportunities to save on diapers with a $2.00 print-at-home coupon offer that can be redeemed in stores through 7/31. Additionally, in partnership with Ibotta, Luvs is also offering a limited-time $5 rebate on any boxed variety of Luvs diapers, 54ct. box or larger.

Never used Ibotta? You have to download it! I have only had it for a couple weeks and already made $16 from using it just one time with their welcome bonus, one friend referral and one rebate redeemed.

Ibotta is super easy to use. Here’s how to get the $5 rebate:

  • Download the free Ibotta app on iTunes or Google Play
  • Before you go to the store, search “Luvs” and unlock the exclusive $5 rebate by clicking the “unlock” button
  • Go shopping for your Luvs Diapers at any participating store
  • Verify your purchases by scanning product barcodes and submitting a photo of your receipt in the app
  • That’s it! Your $5 cash back rebate will be deposited into your Ibotta account within 48 hours

With large stretch tabs, ultra-leakage protection, a money-back guarantee and multiple high-value coupon offers, Luvs with NightLock provides high-quality features for less cost than premium brands. What will you do with the money saved? I’d suggest ordering your sleep-deprived-self a fancy coffee. You deserve it, mom!

kuipers 4

(Disclosure: I am receiving a family pack of passes to the pumpkin farm.)

Kuipers’ Fall season began in August when the orchard opened for apple picking (Sat & Sun only) and the aroma of fresh apple cider doughnuts, home-baked pies, fudge, pasteurized apple cider and hand-spun caramel apples from The Orchard Shop and Bakery lingers in the air.

September 21st the west side of the farm opened for some down-on-the-farm-fun like The Maize Corn Maze, hayrides, farm animals, a haunted forest, tractor tire mountain, peddle tractor derby, nature walk, jumping pillows,  pumpkin picking and much more.  Be sure to catch the Pig Races and The Cowboy Randy Roping Show on the weekends.  The Pumpkin Farm is a great place to host your child’s birthday party or visit with your Scout group (see website for package details). 

November and December at the farm is dedicated to the holidays with pies and specialty foods for entertaining, unique gifts for giving and of course, Christmas trees.  Harvest your own right from the fields or select a freshly harvested Fraser Fir from our huge selection.

Save on Fall fun at Kuipers Family Farm with this coupon! Visit Kuiper’s Family Farm online here.

Yoplait Fruitful Coupon

fruitful

This post is sponsored by Yoplait but my love of fruit and good yogurt is 100% my own.

I’m really excited to be headed to the apple orchard with the kids this weekend. I love freshly picked fruit but heading to an orchard isn’t always an option. Thankfully, Yoplait has come out with a delicious new yogurt called Fruitful that has 1/3 cup of fruit in each serving. Yum!

There are six flavors of Yoplait Fruitfuls: Pineapple, Strawberry, Mango Pineapple & Orange, Blueberry, Peach, and Cherries & Red Berries. Which one will you try first?

Be among the first to experience the goodness of new Yoplait Fruitful, with a $.30 off coupon available to download at the product website. The coupon is located on the right-hand side of the page by clicking on “Enjoy with a Coupon”. Get the coupon here.

Box Tops for Education® Pantry Stock Up {Giveaway}

btfe

Box Tops for Education®, the nation’s largest school fundraising program, announced that it has earned more than half-a-billion dollars for schools across the country since it started in 1996. The General Mills program includes more than 240 participating brands providing needed cash for 90,000 enrolled K-8 schools. At the heart of the program is more than 75,000 volunteer Box Tops for Education coordinators who motivate local school communities to collect the 10-cent coupons which are redeemed for cash schools use for whatever they need most.
