Another place to find coupons: Magazines

It always seems FatHeadDog finds a great coupon at the most inoppertune time. A blinky machine at the grocery store while FatHeadPup is having a meltdown. A lonely coupon skipping in the wind across a grocery store parking lot. Or a clip-worthy coupon in my cache of magazines, inevitably found late at night and without scissors in sight. I’ve gotten quite a few grumpy glances from my husband as I try tearing a coupon by hand. Rip it slow and quietly, or fast and loudly, either way is intrusive to his beloved sleep.

While perusing your monthly magazines, grab a pair of scissors and keep an eye out for valuable coupons within ad pages. One particular mag that’s worth your while… at least for the coupons, is the Wal-Mart exclusive All You Magazine. This month,¬†¬†there’s a special health & fitness edition of ALL YOU magazine that will be available on newsstands at Walmart beginning Friday 1/8. According to DealSeekingMom, here’s a glimpse at the coupons inside:

Review: Insight Exchange Team

Insight ExchangeLately I’ve been exploring paid and reward market research survey sites, and came across Insight Exchange Team by recommendation. I don’t post negative reviews that often, but Insight Exchange certainly disappointed.

Overview:
Receive 1 to10 points for every completed survey.
You can redeem 10 points to Plant a Tree or 65 points for a $25 Restaurant.com gift certificate.

My first red flag was the lack of compelling prizes. Planting a tree is a unique prize, but I was disappointed to see the only other prize was a $25 Restaurant.com gift certificate. Looks good on paper, but you’ll learn that restaurant.com is more like a coupon than a gift card. You have to purchase a minimum amount to use the certificate–for example, you can take $25 off a $50 meal. If you’re a frequent diner, that’s a great 50% off, but its not a good fit for my family.

My second and final red flag: I went to redeem my Plant a Tree certificate today and (insert Price is Right lose theme) it had already been redeemed by another user. That’s it; I’m out!

If you’ve had a similar experience, or if you’ve had a GREAT experience with Insight, I’d love to hear about it!
