Ready for another week of great deals? A big welcome to our new Super-Couponers from this past week’s class in Skokie, and of course the many listeners from Johnny B’s show as well… (we’re taking a break from the radio segment this week, so the only place you’ll find this week’s deals? Right here! :)
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.
And, if you’re new to couponing in general, check out my Super-Couponing website for a list of FREE coupon classes and instructions on how to start using coupons effectively!
Starting at Jewel, as if we didn’t get enough cheap cereal last week, there is a crazy deal going on Post cereals this week! If you buy 5 boxes (10 oz. or larger) of Post cereals, you’ll get a $5 Catalina back for your next order.
Well, the following cereals are on sale for $2 a box:
And, the following cereals are on sale for $1.50 a box when you buy in pairs of 2 (MUST buy in pairs of 2 to get this price, but you can mix and match from the group):
Honey Bunches of Oats
Honey Bunches Just Bunches
Post Raisin Bran
So… this is already a SWEET deal, but we’re going to make it even better with coupons! Go get these:
3/1 SS – .55 off Honey Comb
3/1 SS – $1 off any 2 Post Selects
3/29 SS – $1 off 2 Post Shredded Wheat, Post Raisin Bran, Grape Nuts, Nuggets or Flakes
For example, you could buy 1 Honey Comb, 2 Post Selects, and 2 Raisin Bran. Pre-coupon total – $9, post-coupon total $6.45. Pay $6.45 and get a $5 Catalina back! That’s a lot of cereal for $1.45!
If you have two sets of coupons (duplicates) this deal can be even better :)
If you buy any 4 boxes of the cereals in the second group, plus one box of Honey Comb. You’ll pay $5.45… and get $5 back! 4 boxes of cereal for .45… that’s less than ten cents a box :)
Note that the $1.50 price part of the deal does only work once per Preferred card. If you do it again with the same card, those cereals will ring up 2/$5, not 2/$3. So, if you want to repeat the deal, consider using your spouse’s Preferred card… or be aware the price won’t be nearly as low the second time around.
Still at Jewel, let’s get some orange juice to go with our breakfast supplies… :) There’s a fun deal going on Tropicana orange juice right now. It’s $3 a carton. Buy 4 cartons, and you’ll get a coupon on your receipt for a FREE carton on your next trip… as well as a Catalina for a FREE carafe of Simply Orange orange juice too!
We’re of course going to make this better with coupons! Clip these:
1/4 RP – $1 off 2 Tropicana Pure Premium
3/15 RP – $1 off 1 Tropicana Trop50 (50% less sugar)
Buy your 4 cartons, and use these coupons. You’ll pay $10 for your 4 Tropicanas… you’ll get coupons at checkout for a 5th carton of free Tropicana! What’s even better? At many Jewel locations you’ll also get a Catalina for a free carafe of Simply Orange! That’s 6 orange juices for $10… a very good price :) Note: You MUST do this one at the regular (not self-check) lane to get the coupon for the free Tropicana.
(Note: The Simply Orange promo varies by store. This post contains info on where it’s working and isn’t, so we can help each other scout out the best places to buy.
Still at Jewel, Ronzoni Bistro pasta meals are B1G1F. Use the B1G1F coupon from 2/8 SS and you will buy NONE and get TWO free! :)
Over at Dominick’s, there’s a big “Buy 10, save $5” promo running on a bunch of things. You can mix and match anything tagged for the promo in the list, and when you buy 10 of them, $5 is automatically deducted from the total.
Want some fun things to buy with this sale?
Bertolli bagged pasta sauces: They’re $2 a pouch. Buy 10 pouches ($20) and $5 is automatically deducted from the total, making them $15. Pay $15 and get a $2 Catalina off your next order for every 2 you bought… so you’ll pay $15 and get $10 back! That’s just .50 a pouch…
Ice Mountain Aquapods bottled water: They’re $2 an 8-pack. Buy 10 ($20) and $5 is automatically deducted from the total, making them $15. Pay $15 and get a $2 Catalina off your next order for every 2 you bought… so you’ll pay $15 and get $10 back! That’s already a good deal, but 2/8 RP has a .75 off 2 Aquapods coupon. Now, pay $14.25, get $10, and you’re looking at .42 an 8-pack! If you’ve got multiple inserts, you can use more of these coupons, of course. AND, look for peelies on the Aquapod packages for $1 off produce when you buy Aquapods. I got some free grapefruits with my cheap Aquapods too! :)
With these first two sales, the shelves are likely to go crazy-bare on these items. If you can’t find 10 of each, remember you can mix and match (6 and 4, etc – but make sure they’re purchased in quantities of 2 to trigger the Catalina.)
So, if you need some filler items, these are good!
Kraft salad dressings: They’re $1.50 if you buy them in groups of 10 too. Use the $1.50 coupon from 3/29 SS to make these FREE.
Mott’s apple juices: They’re also $1.50 each if bought in groups of 10. Use this $0.55 coupon to bring this down to $0.95 a bottle. Or – remember that Dominick’s accepts expired coupons too! 8/10/08 SS has a $1 off 2 Mott’s coupon which will bring this down to $1 a bottle as well.
There are many other items included in the deal, but remember you need a total of 10 of them, in any form, to get that final instant-savings price. Have fun! AND, for my Chicago readers… remember that you will fall prey to that nasty bottled water tax if you get in on this deal, so take that into consideration before you load up on seemingly-“cheap” bottled water… (sorry guys, but I am all about the low prices & it’s worth noting…)
Over at Walgreens, there’s a pretty good deal going on Softsoap body wash. Buy 1 at $3.99 and get a coupon for a FREE bottle on your next order. Of course, we’ll make this better with coupons… Use the $1 coupon from March All You and pay $2.99 for both. Or, use the .75 coupon from 3/29 SS and pay $3.24 for both. (And yes, this deal was “rolling” earlier this week (you could take your free coupon, buy a “free” bottle with it and get ANOTHER free coupon – unusual for Wags! but this has been fixed and no longer works in this way.)
And still at Walgreens, if you didn’t get free Listerine last week, it’s still pretty cheap this week! Listerine is on sale 2/$11, and if you buy 2, you get $5.50 back in Register Rewards. 2/8 RP and 3/15 RP have $2 off Listerine Total Care (purple bottle.) So, use 2 coupons – pay $7 and get $5.50 back. That’s just $1.50 for 2 bottles of Listerine! Also, look for bottles with a smaller travel-sized Listerine attached to further sweeten this deal.
Free silicone spatula at The Great Indoors
Free roll of Marcal toilet paper – 3/8 SS
$1 off Johnson’s Buddies soap (under $1 at most stores – expires 3/31!) – 1/4 RP
Free Rimmel Sexy Curves mascara – April All You (currently B1G1F at CVS this week too!)
