I have to admit with Christmas around the corner I've been trying to wrap up projects around the house on my days off and have not done a ton of coupon shopping. It definitely helps that I have been Christmas shopping throughout the year when a good deal would come along so I am pretty much set without having to do a lot at the last minute.
Safeway has had some good deals lately, they have a good deal on Nabisco crackers wyb5 get $5 off. There are current Nabisco coupons for $1 off any cracker, makes the Cheese Nips FREE and most other crackers $.49. They were out of Cheese Nips at my store so I held on to my q's, promotion ends 1/7/10.
They also have coupons from now until Christmas Eve where there is a free item each day with a $20 purchase (today was dozen eggs, tomorrow is little smokies!). Now is a good time to whip out those coupons for free items to bring your total to $20. Went tonight for some milk (sorry, no picture):
gal milk $2.19
dozen eggs - FREE with Christmas coupon and a $20 purchase
6 Mr. Clean Spray and refill @ $1.99 each wyb3 or more - (3) free spray wyb refill (the computer automatically takes off the original price of $3.99 = all 6 FREE
9 Barilla whole grain pasta @ $1 - (9) $.50/1 mq = FREE
sugar substitute @ $6.99 - FREE mq = FREE
3 bananas @ $.39/lb
6 Lucerne cheese @ $.99 ea - $.30/1 peelies (did 2 separate orders as the limit is 3) = FREE
Total = $4.29 on a gift card
What I can't figure out, and maybe KC can help me since I know you've had tax issues at Safeway before, is why my OOP was so high. My receipt says that tax is $1.24 and since everything else was free except the milk then my total should be $3.43. I don't know!
I've also been asked about diaper deals, this is probably the best one this week at WG's:
Huggies are $8.99 with a $2 RR
Buy 1 @ 8.99
- $1.50 q from SS 11/15 (look around though for other q's you may have, I know I have $2 q's from something)
- $1 WG's coloring book (this was available like back in August, may be hard to find now)
Pay $6.49 and get back $2 RR
Like paying $4.49/pack
Remember not to use your $2 RR from this to buy another pack of diapers as it would not generate another $2 RR. If you don't have the coloring book, $5.49 is a still good deal on Huggie's. My personal 5-star price is $5 or less on brand name diapers, so not a bad deal!!
