  • wow! thats a lot of newspaper. I buy sunday newspaper at 99 cents store later this day for $1.99 :).

  • Stephanie

    I do this too! 🙂
    I always use my up rewards to get papers. I earned $60 in ups last week so I used $20 of it today on papers. After my 10% off discount I got 15 newspapers today and only paid $1.10 sales tax! I’ve been doing that for a while now. I use store money to pay for newspapers and earn more back by purchasing products for free with the coupons.

    I also got all those ups free bc I had gift cards from the Skin Care rebate so zero oop! great week!
    By the way did anyone get the shick hydro coupon?
    Not in any of my papers and I bought different cities.
