If you do your own taxes and have not gotten your program yet, I have an awesome deal for you. I have used the H & R Block Home Edition for many years, dating back to when it was known as Taxcut. Every year I get the disk in the mail, which I put in my computer and download the program. The last few years, the download has cost around $35, and did not include the state program, so I had to pay another $25 that.  Now, I know that each of these can be done for free online, but with the installed version, I could do other family members' taxes, and my files are on my computer, if I ever need another copy.

I ran across a truly awesome deal while at Office Depot yesterday, and just had to share. I was in the store to spend some Rewards that are expiring at the end of the month, when I noticed their tax prep display. Their H & R Block Home edition was regularly priced at 44.95, and included one state download. Well, already, this is less than I was going to spend. But, to make the deal even better, they had a $10 instant savings AND a mail-in rebate for a $15 Office Depot gift card. This brings the final cost down to 19.99. And, if you're like me. and have rewards to spend, it could be free! I didn't even have to pay tax.

Nivea Money-Maker at CVS

This week at CVS you can grab 4 Nivea Lip Care Balms and make $1 in the process. They are priced at 2.50 each, and CVS has an ECB deal offering $5 back on a $10 Nivea purchase. Use two $3/2 Nivea Lip Care coupons from this week's Red Plum insert and you will pay just $4. You will then receive $5 in ECBs. And to make this an even better deal, if you pay with ECBs, you won't even have to pay sales tax.

"ALL" Detergent for $1 at Dollar General

There is a great deal to be had at Dollar General on ALL detergent. It is currently priced at 3.50 for the 28-load bottle. However, right now you can stack a manufacturer's coupon with a DG store coupon to bring the price down to $1.

Go HERE and click on the Fresh Start sweepstakes, then click on "Save Now". There is a 50¢ off one coupon that will become $1.50 off if you share it with 3 friends. After sharing, you will receive the coupon in your email.

Pair that with the $1 off coupon from the Jan. 1 Red Plum insert and you will be good to go. You can also print a $1 off coupon HERE.

Update: It appears that the $1 printable coupon is no longer available. But you can still get the deal if you have the $1 newspaper coupon.
