Mamasource is offering a good deal on a National Geographic Kids magazine subscription. You can get a 1 year subscription for only $12 (a $49 value). I remember looking at these when I was little. I bet your kiddo would look forward to getting their issue every month! This is recommended for children 5 years and older. You can grab this deal for 4 more days!
If your kids are younger, you can get a 1 year subscription to National Geographic Little Kids for only $10 (a $23 value). These magazines are packed with colorful photos, activities, and stories. It is recommended for children 3-6 years old. You've got three days left to grab this deal.
Here's a way to help keep your kids sharp this summer. Kids.Woot is offering a Sid the Science Kid 5 DVD Bundle for only $19.99 plus $5 for shipping. You can choose from two different bundles. These DVDs are recommended for children 3-6 years old.
There is a lot of itty bitty fine print on coupons, and not all coupons have the same rules! I want to share with you how to decode the fine print and some do's and don'ts of couponing!
- Scan, copy or print more than the alotted number of printable coupons a website allows
- Decode bar codes (a practice by which shoppers use a coupon to buy an entirely different product). Just because you can scan a coupon doesn't mean it's legal to do so!
- Use expired coupons unless the store allows it.
- Buy coupons. Most coupons have a clause that makes them void if transferred. I personally don't think there's anything wrong with sharing coupons with friends, but I would never purchase them from a clipping service or sell them.
- Read the fine print. Make sure you follow the terms and condition printed on the coupon. Here are some common phrases and what they mean:
- Limit one coupon or offer per guest - you can only use one coupon on each visit to the store.
- Limit one coupon per item/per purchase - you can use one coupon for every item you purchase. For example, if you buy 5 items, then you can use 5 matching coupons.
- Limit 4 like coupons per transaction - you can use a max of 4 coupons for every transaction. If you have more than 4 of the same coupons, then you will need to break your items into separate transactions.
- Void if altered, transferred, purchased, sold or prohibited by law - You are not supposed to sell or purchase your coupons.
- DND - Do not double. Some stores choose to make exceptions to this rule. It is up to the store.
