Update and stuff...

Well I know I have been remiss for the last month and I hope to get back on track now that the weather is going to start getting cold.

The update:  I went in for my 3 month follow up with my radiologist and my oncologist today and all is well, just need to go in for a blood test since I started a new medication but aside from that I don't have to go to a "scary" doctor for another 3 months.  October is breast cancer awareness month, be sure to get your mammograms and remember to do a monthly self exam. 

I thought since I hadn't posted anything in awhile I would share some of the great deals I have gotten this month and let you in on how to find them.

Shop #1 was with 1800PetMeds, my dog takes Dasuquin and it is pretty expensive, 1800PetMeds has the lowest price I have found on it anywhere and they currently have a sale going on to make it even a little lower.  I then added on coupon code W5PER from Retail Me Not to get an additional 5% off site wide and free shipping.  I ordered through Ebates so I also got 6% cash back on my transaction. 

Shop #2 was with and was a whopper!  Our vacuum went kaput so we ordered a new Dyson Animal, it is fantastic at picking up pet hair and is so nice because there is no bulk to it, we will have it a long, long time; but what a price tag!  I was able to find it for the lowest price of $499.00 at with free shipping.  Because I could not find a coupon code for this one I did a lot of digging for the lowest price.  Then I placed the order going through Quick Rewards so I will get an additional 2.1% cash back; it's not a lot, but $10.48 is about the cost of a CD for my husband for Christmas.

Shop #3 was with DeepDiscount where I ordered 2 things that will help with the winter Blah's, Frozen Heat on CD, the third book in the Nikki Heat series based on the TV show Castle. (I love books on CD because I can listen while I work on my scrapbooks.)  I also ordered season two of Haven.  Just going through DeepDiscount saved me $32.00 but I also went through Ebates again so I will get an additional 3% cash back.

The last shop was through Kohl's, they are having a huge sale on their throws and I found one I loved that is 60" x 80" marked down to $19.99 from $39.00, then I used a one day coupon code from Brad's Deals that brought the price down another 20%.  I also made sure I was shopping through Quick Rewards so I got 3.2% cash back.  There was tax on the item since I live in a state that has Kohl's but there was no shipping.  My total cost was a few cents over $17.00.

On all my shops online I only use one credit card and it is one that earns me points to use towards miles, gift cards, hotels or merchandise and then pay it off at the end of the month.  My motto is never miss an opportunity to earn something for all your hard work shopping!

What deals have you found this month?  I would love to hear about them!

Have a great week everyone!
