Sensational Seasonal Steals!!!

Printable coupons are wonderful things, with one exception; you don't know what the expiration date will be until after you print them!  Well, you're lucky you have me, because my curiosity got the best of me tonight.

Expiration dates on printable coupons are determined one of two ways; either a set amount of time beyond the print date, usually one month, or as of a pre-determined date.  If the coupon is for a new product, the date tends to be further out.  If it's for an all-time favorite, then you are likely to have a finite amount of time to use the coupon.

I noticed that every coupon for Halloween candy in the inserts during the weeks leading up to the holiday expired on October 31st.  That made sense, because it's before Halloween that you need the candy.  However, it's after when they go on clearance that us couponers want the candy, and we don't want to pay for it!

Tonight's experiment involved scouring coupon websites for Holiday printables and taking a big gamble...printing knowing that if they expire before prices are reduced, I may never use them!  Here are the results...

Use zip code 30303 for:
$1/2 Wonka Fantastical Fun Books
$1/2 Boxes of Wonka Candy Canes
$2/3 Bags of Nestle Jinglers Candy
All of these are good through 1/31/12!!!

Over at Coupon Network I will save you some time.  The $1.25/2 Nestle Jingles and $1/2 Wonka Holiday Sugar Candies both expire 12/25.  Of course, they're great to have, but if you're all about the freebies, here's the good one: $1/2 Wonka Candy Canes.  That's right, another one, so with only one computer you can snag four of these!

Happy Couponing!!!
