I headed over to King Soopers today to get in on their Mega Event. I usually don't go on the first day of the sale but Jim's working tomorrow and I didn't want to go on Friday.
As you can imagine there is a TON of good deals this week. Jennie at http://www.bargainblessings.com/ did her matchups early since she was going out of town so that was really nice.
If you haven't already, swing over to Safeway and grab one (or more) of their Joy Of Football coupon books. There are manufacturer coupons in there that you can use at ANY store. I used a couple of them today.
I won't go through EVERYthing I bought but here are some of my best picks...
**M.E. stands for Mega Event sale. That's the price if you buy 10 items.
Hebrew National beef franks - $1.49 each after M.E. and $2 off of 2 coupon from Joy of Football Book
Kraft Cheese slices - .79 after M.E. and coupon, I think from the Jan. 2nd paper
Although I've stocked up on free toothpaste a LOT lately, some Crest toothpaste is on sale for $2. I found one type that had $10 worth of coupons inside and a travel sized toothpaste attached as well. I picked up 2 of them (I had $1 off coupons so they were only $1) because I'm going on a trip in a couple weeks and would have probably bought travel toothpaste anyway. Now for $1 I have the travel size, plus the full size AND $10 worth of other coupons (which are good ones!)
You can grab some Hershey candy bars for .25 with their 2 for $1 sale, plus the BOGO coupon from the 12/12 paper.
I snagged some Pace picante sauce for .97 after the M.E. sale and a .50/2 coupon from the 12/5 paper
The Rotel deal is AWESOME! They are on sale for .42 each. Use the .30 coupon from last Sunday's paper (I bought 2 more newspapers from King Soopers today, so check your store. They may still have Sunday papers hanging around), which doubled and made it an .18 money maker!!
There is also a great deal on Hunts tomatoes. I had a couple $1/3 coupons (don't remember where) so that made the .42 M.E. sale drop them down to .9 each!! AND I also had a $1 ecoupon loaded onto my card, which deducted so I made money on those too!!
The Feb. issue of All You magazine has a $1.50/3 Hormel products which pairs up with the .79 M.E. sale price so those were only .29 each!
The Joy of Football book also has a coupon for $1 off Ritz crackers, which makes them only .99 with the Mega Event.
I do have to mention the Uncle Ben's deal. The coupon that I had for Uncle Ben's rice didn't seem to match up with the sale in the paper (like mentioned in the blogs) so maybe I need to relook and see if I have another coupon somewhere. However, my store had a 3lb. box of white rice mislabeled and had it a part of the sale. I am truely honest when I say that I didn't pay attention to the fact that the label was wrong. I just thought it was one of those times when there was an unadvertised deal. I picked up 5 boxes because they were going to be free with the sale and my coupons (I'm donating 3 boxes to my parent's church). Long story short (too late), they rang up wrong (or correct, however you want to look at it) and that's when I noticed the mistake. I was fully ready to just take them off my bill, with no sweat, but the manager decided to give me those boxes for the sale price because it was their mistake. So, you most likely won't get that deal but I did end up with a LOT of free rice.
Anyway, I picked up a few other things that we needed (All detergent was $2.99 after sale and $1 coupon), frozen pizzas (CPK on sale plus $1 coupon), etc etc
I ended up spending $79.39 and saved $110.43 (59%)
Mega Events usually last 2 weeks so I'm sure I'll snag a few more things next week. I have 2 coupons left that I could have used today but then I would have had to grab 8 filler items and that seemed like a waste.
I AM going to Albertson's this week to snag some SUPER CHEAP oatmeal. Here's a rundown on the deal from Moms Thrifty Deals. There is a catalina deal to go along with it, but even if you don't have the quantity to do the catalina you can still get Quaker oatmeal for only .49 with the in-ad coupon and the $1 coupon from the 1/2 paper.
Happy Shopping!! I'd love to hear what deals you snag this week.
