This week’s already off to a start with some fantastic deals! A big welcome to our new Super-Couponers from this past week’s classes in Mount Prospect, Glen Ellyn, and Lake in the Hills, and of course the many listeners from Johnny B’s show as well…
If you’re new to the site, take a quick minute to read Using this site and bring yourself up to speed on all the coupon lingo and abbreviations. Unless otherwise noted, grocery store deals run through Wednesday of this week, and the pharmacy deals run through Saturday.
Starting at Dominick’s, they’ve got a great deal going on frozen foods as part of their Chill Out promotion. Spend $25 on selected frozen foods and get a $10 Catalina good for your next purchase of frozen food. The best part of these deals? That $25 total is PRE-COUPON, so of course we’re going to use lots of coupons to reduce our out-of-pocket total :)
As always, there are a LOT of items in this deal (even more than are in the ad) and just for my blog readers, I cruised the aisles of my local Dominick’s and compiled a list of things tagged for the deal and their sale prices over in the Forum! Now, you can mix and match just about whatever you want, but here’s a potential order that you could do:
(Note: Dominick’s takes expired coupons, so when there are expired coupons applicable for the deal, I’ve listed them too)
3 boxes Eggo waffles ($1.77, minus coupons: $1 off 2 – 12/14 RP, 9/21 RP, 8/3 KL .75 off 1 – 12/14 RP, .55 off 1 – 9/21 RP.)
Birdseye Steamfresh Meal for Two ($7.99, minus coupons: $1.50 off 1 – 11/2 SS, 10/12 SS – plus use with following Steamfresh item…)
Birdseye Steamfresh Vegetables or Rice ($2, minus coupons: FREE Steamfresh with purchase of Steamfresh Meal for Two – 2/8 SS)
Contessa frozen meal ($4.99, minus coupon: $2 off Contessa – Redplum.com – under RedPlum Exclusives)
2 Pepperidge Farm frozen bread ($2.50 each, minus coupons: $1 off 2 and .40 off 1 – 1/18 SS)
With the above order, your pre-coupon total will be $25.29 – but you’ll actually pay $8.25 less after coupons… so you will pay $17.04 for your food… and get $10 back for your next order! That’s a lot of food for $7.04 :)
Other good items to mix and match in the deal:
Edy’s Ice Cream ($2.99, minus coupon: $1 off Edys – Nov. All You)
Hot Pockets / Lean Pockets ($2.50, minus coupons: .40 off 1 – Jan. All You, $1 off 2, 9/28 RP)
PictSweet Steamable meals ($2.99, minus coupons: $1 off 2 peelies on product or in 11/2 RP)
TaiPei frozen meals ($2.50, minus coupon: $1 off 2 – 3/1 RP)
And, the bonus… you can take the $10 Catalina coupon you get for buying your first order and use it to help pay for a second round of $25 worth of foods in the deal… and you’ll get another $10 Catalina! I love these kinds of deals :)
Before you go to Dominicks, do you visit PGEsaver.com and load up the electronic coupons to your Dominick’s Fresh Values card? You should, because if you’re also making a trip for frozen food, you can also get a FREE razor… but not only will it be free, they’ll pay YOU almost $2 to take it home! PGEsaver.com has a $2 off any Gillette Venus razor coupon that you can load to your card. Stack this with the $2 off Gillette Venus razor coupon in 2/8 PG and/or 3/1 PG… and use it to purchase the Gillette Venus razor that is currently on clearance for $2.09 (it is the “basic” razor in a blue cardboard package and is UPC # 0 47400 14036 3.) Thanks to Bargain Babe in our Forum for this tip! If you add this razor in with your frozen food, that coupon overage of $1.91 will help bring your frozen total down even more too!
Still at Dominick’s, don’t forget to pick up these cheapies too… the front page of the current flier has a store coupon that will give you a box of Kellogg’s Raisin Bran or Frosted Mini-Wheats for .99. Pair this with the .70 off Kellogg’s cereal coupon from 2/22 and take the cereal home for just .29!
And STILL at Dominick’s (Are you surprised? After weeks of barely a blip on my deal radar, I too was stunned at how many deals Doms has this week!) there’s another coupon in the flier to get a pound of Lucerne butter for just .99, and another coupon for a FREE 2-liter of 7-UP or A&W! Why not pick these up too?
Heading over to Jewel, pick up some FREE South Beach cereal bars! South Beach bars are on sale again for $3 a box. Load up your Avenu discounts, which has $1.50 off each box. Head over to Kraft’s website and print two $2 coupons for South Beach cereal bars! You’ll take home 2 boxes for FREE… plus $1 in overage! This deal comes up pretty often, so if you haven’t already printed these coupons, grab them this week and enjoy your free snacks!
Still at Jewel, there are a bunch of yogurts on sale! Almost all of these coupons appear in this past Sunday’s paper too — a rare bonus week when they line up to a good sale! Dannon Activia, Dannon DanActive, Dannon Light and Fit, Danimals Crush, AND Danimals Drinkable are all on sale for $2 a pack. There are $1 coupons for almost all of these in 3/1 SS, and Coupons.com has a printable for .75 off the Light and Fit too. That brings this down to $1 a pack, or a quarter a cup, or less in most cases, which is a fantastic price for yogurt!
And still at Jewel, Zone nutrition bars are on sale for .79-$1 (depending on flavor.) Use the $1 coupon from 3/1 SS and take one home for FREE!
Want another freebie? Certain varieties of Infusium shampoo (“Volumologie” is one) are on clearance for $2.49. Use the $3 coupon from 3/1 and pick this up for FREE too with possible overage!
Note: Yes, there are good Catalina deals running on both ConAgra and Pepsico/P&G at Jewel this week too. With the blog down for most of the day, I have honestly not had time to work these deals out. Please feel free to post your matchups in the Forum for both deals, which run through 3/4.
Over at Walgreens, Vaseline Total Moisture lotion is on sale for $2.71 with a $2 Register Reward when you buy one bottle. Use the .55 coupon from 1/18 RP, pay $2.16, and get a $2 RR! Your lotion will cost just .15!
Walgreens also has an awesome RR deal going on Johnson & Johnson’s baby products. My Forum regulars have been all over this deal too, posting a fabulous list of scenarios and matchups, and again, with the hectic day dealing with getting the blog back up, I’ll defer to them, as I don’t think I could have written it up better :) Head over to the Forum… you’ll be taking home $25 worth of J&J product for $1!
Over at CVS, did you miss getting your FREE “expensive” razor over the last 3 weeks? The mad rush on free Gillette Fusion “Gamer” razors left many shelves bare and many shoppers frustrated. Well, guess what… the razors are still on sale for $7.99. Use the same coupon, pay $3.99, and get $4 back in ECBs! FREE is good!
Lastly, I want to wish a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my beautiful mom, who is turning 29 tomorrow on March 4th! Happy Birthday Mom!!! :)
She really is! On her first 29th birthday, my darling dad gave Mom this fabulous t-shirt that said “29… and Holding.” Here’s to another year of turning 29! :)
