Free McAfee Total Protection Software is offering McAfee Total Protection 2009 software for free after mail in rebate.  Go here to see the software and checkout the deal.  You must purchase it from Amazon directly, not another seller in order to qualify for the mail in rebate.  The shipping will be free if you select the free Super Saver shipping option at check out.  You have to wait to receive the software in the mail before you can submit the rebate, so print out a copy of the rebate form and put it somewhere that you will not forget to do it!

This would also be a good time to order something cheap from Amazon that you’ve had your eye on, but didn’t want to pay shipping for (& didn’t qualify for free shipping on it’s own since it was under $25).

Walgreens Deals for April 26 – May 2


First, I need to note a few things.  When you are printing a coupon online, you can usually print the coupon then use your browser’s back button to print it a second time.  Two is usually the maximum number allowed per computer, but if you have a second computer you can print two more. These are the abbreviations I use for the names of the coupon inserts: SS-Smart Source, RP-Red Plum, PG-Procter & Gamble.  Other abbreviations are RR for Register Reward and MIR for mail-in rebate.

– Spend approximately $8.78 out of pocket (afer coupons)

– Submit for Walgreens $10 rebate online (make copy of receipt for your records)
