I am loving Safeway today, even though those pesky eQs are so unpredictable. There is a fantastic Buy 4, Save $4 deal on select cereal, fruit snacks, & granola bars. If I *'d the item, that means it was a participating item. I am listing the individual prices before the $4 discount to show how it rings up on the receipt.
3.00 Fiber One bars* -.40/1 Fiber One MQ, -1.20 eQs = .20 overage
2.00 Fruit by the Foot & Gushers* -.50/2 Betty Crocker MQ, -1.00 eQs = FREE
2.00 BC fruit shapes (2)* -.40/1 BC IPQ (2), -.40 eQ = .20 overage each
2.50 Cinnamon Toast Crunch* (2) -1/1 Big G cereal IPQ (2), -.55 eQ= .45 each
2.00 Life cereal* -1/1 Life cereal MQ from inside Quaker oatmeal box=FREE
.99 BC potatoes -.35/1 BC potatoes MQ, -1.20 eQs = 1.20 overage
1.50 Lean pockets w/ in-ad Q 1.10 in eQs were supposed to come off :(
20.68 before Qs
12.68 after 2, $4 deductions
.33 paid on giftcard after Qs, received $2.50 OYNO = 2.17 profit!
There is a major money making deal at Wags this week, if you can find the elusive Aviva meters on sale for 9.99 this week. Pair those up with the free Aviva MQ 11/15 SS plus the 5/1 Aviva Wags Q from the Diabetes & You booklet for $5 overage. Make sure you have items to cover the overage because the registers won't go negative. I found 2 today and grabbed a $10 giftcard. I had to throw in a .33 caramel because the D&Y Wags Q rings up as a MQ for some reason- its not. I paid $2.12 on a giftcard and walked out with a $10 giftcard, so $7.88 profit. Now, if I can just find some more meters... Note- Do not buy the compact plus kind. Its been reported the D&Y Q beeps on that one.
My husband and I watched "The Prestige" on TV this weekend and remembered how much we love that movie. I was going to grab it at Target today for $12, but remembered Bookmans. I found a used copy (guaranteed to play with a 7 day return window) for $7! I didn't have any credit there, so I just paid cash, but still a great deal!
I stopped into Target today for some clearanced Gerber sleepers I saw last week. I didn't grab them last week because I wanted to use the Gerber $1/1 IPQ. I used that and paid $3.98 plus tax for 2 sleepers. Great deal!
I also had a great mail day today. I got 2 free magazines, a Free Q for Stacy's Pita chips (from becoming a fan on FB), a new Home Made Simple Q book, and a free calendar from Betty Crocker. I love when there are more freebies than bills in the mail. :)
