Every week Walgreens offer consumers register rewards which are Catalina coupons that print up after purchasing select qualifying items. This week Walgreens has Complete Multi-Purpose Solution on sale for $7.99 in addition after paying you get a register rewards for the amount of $8.00 so you roughly are paying tax for a complete bottle of contact solution.

Did we mention you get a FREE contact case inside each box of contact solution?

*note* We did print up the coupon and it does not scan well but all the Walgreens we visited did honor it*
*do not use register rewards received from one bottle to buy another bottle hoping to get another register reward, Walgreens systems are set up to prevent coupon looping*

The Hunt For Despicable Me Toys!

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Despicable Me with it’s kool .Me domain was released July 9 2010 and was a huge hit and is still going strong. Leaving the theater the movie had everyone saying “I want my own MINION!” and like many you might have searched store after store but what you and many others found out is that they are not selling at your typical Toys R Us or Walmart… so where are they? After all what is the most important for a Movie after ticket sales? MERCHANDISING! So where are the minion! We managed to find Minion Costumes, Minion party favors, and even Minions at IHOP (International House of Pancakes). One would expect to find a Despicable Me The Flame Thrower! So with all the millions to be made through merchandising where all those cute plush one eyed minions? Where are the fast food kid Despicable Me toys?! Why aren’t all the major retailors stocking any Despicable Me toy merchandise to feed the masses of must have more stuff shoppers of the world? It is despicable I tell you!

It seems someone in the Despicable Me marketing department forgot to read movie merchandising 101, becauce currently those cute Minions can only be found on a few select websites and those despicable quarter eating crane games. We came across such a crane game in a local mall and after many 50 cent attempts we left with no Minion… The crane was just not opening all the way… So if your on the hunt for a Minion, one of those little girls, an adorable unicorn, or even that kitten book then look no further. You can either go on a hunt for a crane game to rip you off slowly quarter after quarter or you can purchase them on Amazon. We found them Minions and all with links posted right here! Granted they will cost more than 50 cents but if you MUST have one because you have a kid shouting for a Minion like it was their Golden Egg Laying Goose then cough up the dough Mommy and Daddy! The prices range from $7.00 up to $60.00! After all we are INSANESHOPPERS right?! If you do happen to come across a crane game with Minions and manage to snatch up a few then you got your self a small sought after fortune there! Make sure to send us one!
