Better get  your deals done early this week with the holiday coming up.  I would be interested in hearing what type of Black Friday deals you are aiming for - either post or send me an email.  There is not much we need, so I'll probably sit this one out - but I'm not promising anything!!!

The best deal this week is the cracker deal at Wags.  Purchase 5 boxes of Nabisco Crackers and get $3.00 in rrs. That makes them $1.70 each.  But wait, if you bought multiple papers, you can get them for free!  Use the 5 x $1 q from 11/8 SS, making them $2 for 5 boxes.......but wait, there's even more!  If you act now, and your store has the Diabetes and You Booklet, there is a $1/2 boxes q in there, making them -.50 for 5 boxes.  See below for more details.
5 boxes x $2 ea =                    $10.00
5 x $1 q from 11/8 RP =          -  5.00
4 x $1/2 q from Diab. Book =  -  2.50
Total OOP:                                  2.50
Get:  $3.00 in RRS                   -  3.00
Net                                            -    .50 (aka - Money Maker)

Think that's a great deal - it gets even better!!!  Do this deal twice, submit the receipt for the "Put a Jingle in your Holidays" Nabisco promotion and you will get a $10 rebate.  Who says that it doesn't pay to stockpile/coupon!?!?!  Those crackers are paying me $10.50 to eat them!!!! Well, not all of them, at least 5 boxes will be donated which got it - Nabisco is paying ME for the needy to eat crackers......SWEET!

Here's the link to the rebate form:

There are also some IPs at the Kraft website, but it's $1/2.  Not as free, but still a great deal!

A couple of other deals that are worth noting at Wags this week:

Hershey's Holiday Minis, Bells or Kisses are 2/$5, get $1 rr wyb 2 bags.  Use the $1/2 q from 11/8 SS, making them $1.50 per bag after rr.

The Starbucks Icecream is on sale for $2.50, use $1 q from 11/15 RP.

Select Harvest soup is $1.25.  Did you happen to print off the $1 IP?


Not much going on there this week but a couple of deals:

Tums are $3.99, get $1 ECB. Pick up the $100 q book (from the pharmacy I think - I haven't even gotten mine yet!).  Use the $2 q from there and the $1 IP, Link: - CORRECTION - Print limit has been reached - but still only $1.00 net - if you need them.

Complete Contact Solution: $8.99, get $8.99 ECBs, use $1 q from 10/25 RP. 
$1 MM

No one in our family uses contact solution, so this will be donated.  This is a great example of "rolling" and "growing" your ECBs.  Hopefully, you already have ECBs and your oop will be low. 
For example - I have a $10 ECB that will expire on Friday, 11/27.  I am going to scour through the black Friday ads and, if there is nothing that I see that I want/need, I will use the $10 in ECBs on this and add a little something else that I want/need. 

Rite Aid:

Rite Aid has started their "Gift of Savings" program (began on 11/22, ends on 12/24)

Spend $25-50, get $5 back
Spend $51-100, get $10 back
Spend over $100, get $20 back

This is before qs.  When they had the fall version of this, I spent about $43 oop (getting SC rebates for $38) and got a $20 check to be used at RA.

It is valid on most items.  See for more details.

The Benevia (nutritional beverage) is $7.99, get $7.99 SCR, use $5 IP and it becomes a $5 MM!!!  Link:

That's about all for this week!
