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 means......you got it - Nabisco is paying ME for the needy to eat crackers......SWEET!
Here's the link to the rebate form: http://www.kraftfoods.com/SiteCollectionImages/ImageRepository/Sept_09/Kraft_Holiday_Crackers.pdf
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: http://www.tums.com/ - 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.
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 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 Riteaid.com for more details.
The Benevia (nutritional beverage) is $7.99, get $7.99 SCR, use $5 IP and it becomes a $5 MM!!! Link: http://www.gobeneviacoupons.com/
That's about all for this week!
