Jill reviews it: Two weeks with my HP Envy printer

Disclosure: I received an HP Envy 120 web-enabled printer, ink, and paper for the purpose of this review. All opinions about HP, the Envy 120, and the HP Savings Center are my own. Later this month, I'll host a giveaway for this product, giving away a new HP Envy 120 to one of my readers! If you missed my first post on this printer, click here to read it.

Earlier this month, I began reviewing a new HP Envy 120 wireless printer. I'm still really enjoying its wireless printing capabilities! As a reminder, this HP Envy 120 works with the HP Savings Center, an online coupon printing component integrated with Coupons.com to offer direct-to-printer capabilities. It sends the coupons you select straight to the printer over the web without having to install a browser plugin. Not only can you print wirelessly to it from anywhere in your home, you can also print to it from anywhere in the world! It's fun to think about being on a trip and sending coupons directly to the printer, knowing they're waiting there when I get home.

This printer also has a variety of free, built-in apps that you can subscribe to. For the purposes of this review, I was asked to subscribe to the meal planner and auto-delivery of coupons that the HP Savings Center selected for me based on my past print history and what's on the meal planner's list.

FREE one-month trial of Netflix!


Have you ever tried Neflix? Incredibly, we hadn't until this month. My husband and I had gotten into watching Breaking Bad fairly late in the game, and in order to catch up on the seasons we missed, we signed up for a free trial of Netflix. Now the whole family is enjoying it! Not only were we able to watch every episode of Walter and Jesse's meth-tastic adventures on Breaking Bad, but our kids are really enjoying the hundreds of children's programs available to them too.

Our television has Netflix streaming capability built in, as does our PlayStation, so it's been fun to simply press a button on the remote and have all of these movies and television programs available to watch whenever we want. (Ahh, technology!) Netflix normally costs $7.99/month. But, if you've never tried Netflix and are curious about it, you can sign up for a free one-month trial at this link!

JC Penney clothing clearance: Trip #2

We were near the Johnsburg JC Penney store this weekend, so we popped in for a few minutes to check out the clearance situation after I discovered some bargains at the Algonquin store last week. I got a 20% off entire purchase coupon via text too, which is always nice when you're sale-shopping.

This trip didn't disappoint! Johnsburg had quite a few more racks and shelves of clearanced boys' clothing. Here's what I bought:

  • Four solid-color blue and orange polo shirts: $2.97 each. (My sons wanted these so they can dress alike - yes, they are still young enough to enjoy doing that! Aww.) After coupon, $2.38 each.
  • Two pairs of tropical-print cotton shorts: $2.97 each. After coupon, $2.38 each.
  • Two pairs of plaid cotton shorts: $2.97 each. After coupon, $2.38 each.
  • One pair of denim shorts: $3.97. After coupon, $3.18.
  • Two button-front cotton shirts: $2.97 each. After coupon, $2.38 each.
  • Five cotton T-shirts: $2.97 each. After coupon, $2.38 each.
  • One cotton T-shirt: $1.97. After coupon, $1.58.

And, my most exciting find:

$1.97-$2.97 clearance going on in-store at JC Penney

I stopped into the Algonquin JC Penney today to pick up a web order (hello, 100% cotton sweatshirts!) and decided to cruise the clearance racks after striking up a conversation with another woman in line. She had an armful of $2.97 summer shirts and blouses for herself that she was absolutely delighted with! So, I took a quick look around. My store had quite a few $2.97 racks in nearly every department.

I found a clearance rack in the boys' department and picked up a few items in the $1.97-$2.97 range:

  • Avenger t-shirt: $1.97
  • Boys' Arizona snap-up shirt: $1.97
  • Boys' Arizona polo: $2.97
  • Boys' Arizona striped cotton shorts: $2.97 (these will magically become cotton swim trunks when I add a mesh lining to them...)
  • Boys' Arizona cargo shorts: $2.67

GIVEAWAY: Win a FREE Coffee-Mate Girl Scout Cookie creamer!

Disclosure: This giveaway is sponsored by Coffee-Mate. I have received two bottles of Coffee-Mate Girl Scout Cookie creamers, as well as information to help promote the product as part of this giveaway.

UPDATE: Giveaway has ended! The winners are Meadowlarks4me and Kidsbasket!

It's giveaway time again, Super-Couponers! Are there any coffee fans in the house? How about Girl Scout cookie fans? How about fans of both?

Coffee-Mate creamers are now available in two tasty Girl Scout cookie flavors: Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut. I first sampled these at BlogHer this summer, and the Coffee-Mate team came up with the most delicious and creative way to show these off. They made milkshakes, and instead of using a splash of milk, they used a splash of Thin Mints creamer or Caramel & Coconut creamer! They were absolutely delicious and gave me ideas for future homemade milkshake nights at our house.

As part of this giveaway, Coffee-Mate shipped two bottles over to try, and my teenage daughter immediately swarmed on them. She is a former Girl Scout and also works part-time as a barista at a coffeehouse. As you might imagine, this was the best of both worlds for her! She squealed with delight when she saw what was in our fridge this afternoon, and she immediately made herself a cup of coffee with the Thin Mints creamer. Her reaction?

"These are fantastic! Oh, so good. Even better than I thought they'd taste. I think I'm going to make another cup after this."

Want to try one of these new creamers yourself? TWO of my readers will get the chance! For a chance to win a coupon for one free Coffee-Mate Girl Scout Cookie flavored creamer, simply post a reply in the comments under this article! This Coffee-Mate giveaway begins today, October 17th, 2013, and runs for one week. The giveaway will end on October 23rd, 2013 at 11:59pm CST, and on October 24th, two winners will be chosen via a random number generator!
