2 packs of Yoplait kids yogurt for .25!

You can see where I got Yoplait kids yogurt for 1.13/6 pack here. However, a friend reminded me of the 1.50/1 coupon you could have printed a few weeks ago. For some reason I couldn't print it so I didn't have it to use.  However, if you have 2 of these coupons you can get 2 6ct. packs of Yoplait yogurt for a QUARTER!  Here is how:
  • Go to and download the .75/2 Yoplait products coupon along with the 1/2 Yoplait kids coupon to your Dillons card.
  • Buy 2 packs of yogurt at Dillons= 2/$5
  • When you purchase both packs, both of the above coupons will come off of your total (at least they did for me!)= -1.75
  • Use 2 1.50/1 coupons= -3.00
Total= .25!!!

Meet Cara

If you haven't met Cara yet, then you need to check out her blog! I was so excited today to see her post here about FREE clean team wipes and 2 $5/$$ K-mart Coupons! Better check it out! I will also be linking to Cara in my weekly Dillons and Hy-Vee posts since she has now taken on the task of postiong The Apple Market deals. If you are not sure what the Apple Market is, it has gone in place of the old Falley's in the Seabrook shopping center. I also believe this is the same store that is located in Auburn, KS as well.

FREE Ocello sponges!

Thanks to Cara for alerting us to these deals:

"Dillons on Fairlawn and 21st has quite a few Ocello sponges marked down to .49 in the clearance rack. There is a coupon for $1 off of 2, making these free. There wew quite a few other types of sponges and cleaning items too. Also, there is a coupon on for $1 off of any Private Select Organic item; the canned beans are $1 making them FREE also!"

If you are out shopping and find deals like these please always feel free to alert us!

FREE box of Fiber One bars!

That's right! In my Dillons mailer a few weeks ago I got a coupon for a FREE box of Fiber One bars! I also got coupons for $/frozen bagged chicken, produce and meat! If you do not currently get these Dillons coupon mailers I suggest you call the customer service # on the back of your card and request to start receiving them.

I never knew these mailers exisited until about 9 months ago when a friend told me about her mailer. I called and asked Dillons how I could get these mailers and they told me all I had to do was shop there. Well considering I had been shopping at Dillons for 5+ years I figured I should be getting them! With in a a few weeks of my call I started getting the mailers. I have noticed they come about once a quarter and the coupons I get are based on what I buy most often. I usually get about 10-15 coupons or so in a mailer and they are so worth it!
