Essential Oil Deals

Essential Oil Deals at Vitamin World!

There are some fantastic deals at Vitamin World right now, but my pick is the essential oils!  The coupon above says BOGO 50% off, but the essential oils are ringing up buy one get one FREE!  If you get peppermint essential oil, it will ring up $7.49 for 2 PLUS you get free shipping!  So 2 peppermint essential oils are just $7.49 SHIPPED! NOTE: this promo code does NOT let you mix and match, it has to be 2 of the same products to ring up free. :(  Some items can be mixed and matched (herbal items, for example) and it looks like under the item there is a label “mix and match” when eligible.

Peppermint Essential Oil Description from page:

“Few scents are as distinctly tantalizing as the cooling, minty vibrancy of Peppermint.   Widely known for its strong, fresh, and minty aroma, this oil is produced by steam distillation of the herb. Peppermint is useful in massage for its refreshing and soothing effects. 100% pure essential oil.

Rub Peppermint Oil onto your temples for a refreshing, rejuvenating lift, or enjoy its traditional uses for circulatory, digestive, brain and nervous system health.** Peppermint Oil can be particularly soothing when it’s rubbed all over your body.

Experience sheer indulgence for your body and mind with Vitamin World Aromatherapy products. Aromatherapy is the art of incorporating essential oils — and their various appealing fragrances — into your everyday lifestyle.”

Starbucks Cartwheel Coupons for Target:

There are several Starbucks coupons on the Target Cartwheel app right now including a secret offer!  These will only work at the Starbucks locations within Target.  If you are a Target shopper, you are definitely gonna want to download the Cartwheel app to your phone or device to get exclusive offers and coupons (you can sign up & download here)!

Here are the current offers:

starbucks carwheel

50% off Starbucks Freshly Brewed Coffee: you must go through THIS LINK to get this offer since it is a hidden offer (thanks for the tip Frugal Finders!).  I cannot explain how to find this or how anyone ever found it, but I’m glad it’s there :)  NOTE: if this does not work from your phone, try from your computer (that’s what I had to do).

Find these by typing “Starbucks” in the search box within Cartwheel:

40% off Starbucks Iced Coffee & Refreshers

25% off Starbucks Warm Sandwiches

10% off Starbucks Ready to Drink 4 packs


-These offers DO expire, so make sure you get them before they are gone

-Target also has a limited number of uses for each offer, so go ahead and load them to your Cartwheel if you think you might use them, otherwise, they will get gone and may not be reset (this is especially true on their house brands of items I have noticed)

-If your Target accepts Starbucks Rewards, you can get stars AND use the Cartwheel coupons by paying with your registered Rewards card.  For more info on how to join the Starbucks Rewards program & earn stars, check out this post: How to Earn Starbucks Rewards.

Free Burger & Fries


Free burger & fries at Red Robin!  Today only get the Tavern Double Burger with bottomless fries with the purchase of 2 beverages & an entree.  Just mention “Tavern Double Tuesday” to receive the offer.  Available to everyone at participating locations (not valid at Red Robin Burger Works).




Free Dunkin’ Donuts!

walmart dunkin

I just received an email about a fantastic offer for Dunkin’ Donuts fans!  If you are a Walmart customer, you may have already seen this offer in an email:

Free Dunkin’ Donuts gift card for $5 from Walmart and a free Dunkin’ Donuts beverage when you enroll in the Dunkin’ Donuts loyalty program.  NOTE: if you do not have a gift card already, you will have to purchase one (minimum $2) to get this offer.

Click here to download the app, then you will be instructed to link a gift card to enroll (If you are a member of Starbucks rewards, this is a similar program where you have to use a gift card to sign up for rewards).  Once you link a gift card, click “next” and then begin to enroll in Dunkin’ Donuts Perks and make sure to use the promo code “WALMART” when you sign up.  After you sign up, you will immediately see the $5 gift card in your account if you are one of the first 5,000 to sign up (I got one right away!).


Craftsman Tools Coupons


craftsman1 craftsman2


Get Craftsman Tools Coupons when you sign up for the Craftsman Club through Shop Your Way!  My first email included 2 coupons, $10 off $50 and $10 off $25 lawn and garden at Shop Your Way stores (Sears and K-Mart are my current faves!)!  If you are not already a member of Shop Your Way, you can sign up here.  Then, use same login to sign in to the Craftsman Club here (top right corner).

Right now if you sign up for Shop Your Way through my link you will get $10 back in points after making a $30 rewards brand purchase (Shop Your Way rewards brands include Sears, K-Mart, and many more).  This could make for some fantastic early Christmas shopping deals since points can be combined with coupons!  I get coupons frequently through Shop Your Way and lots of “surprise points” which can be used to get free items at K-Mart and other stores in the Shop Your Way network!  In a later post I will show how I got a grill cover for free!

One possible scenario to combine coupons and points using the coupons emailed would be to purchase this 28 piece wrench set for $50.96.  You could then use the $10 off $50 to bring the total down to $40.96.  Since this is a purchase over $30, you will get $10 back in points.  Once you get your $10 in points back, you could get this Craftsman single-bit axe priced at $26.99.  Use your $10 off $25 lawn and garden coupon to bring the total to $16.99, then use the $10 in points to bring the total down to $6.99!  This is $77.95 worth of products for $47.95 plus you get 10 points back for every dollar you spend (for this scenario, that would mean you get 470 points).
