FREE Veggie Tales DVD!

Remember a few backs how I told you that if you signed up for LifeWay emails they would send you a $5/$20 purchase coupon? Well I received my coupon within 24 hours of my sign up and quickly formulated a plan to use it. You see my husband wanted a wallet for Christmas and my son LOVES Veggie Tales. This was my deal:
  • Bought 1 wallet on sale=15.99
  • Bought 1 Veggie Tale DVD=$5 (black Friday deal!!!)
-5/20 coupon
=15.99 for both items. (the original cost of the wallet)

Since the coupon was worth $5 I technically got the Veggie Tales DVD FREE! I was super excited! Be sure to see what other great deals people are sharing here!

Dillons 11/28-12/2

This weeks ad is only for 5 days and there are a few good deals worth mentioning! Remember this blog is dedicated to helping you find the BEST deal on a product. I am always looking for prices that beat the Aldi price since Aldi usually has the lowest price.
  • Fresh Ground beef is 1.99/lb. ( I always stock up at this price. See my tips about saving money on meat here!)
  • Kroger Cheese- 80z shreds or bars=3/$5 or 1.67/1 (I stock up at this price- It beats the Aldi price!)
  • Folders big cans of coffee=5.98/1 (use .25/1 coupon to get this for 5.48- GREAT DEAL!)
  • 2 liters of Pepsi=10/10
  • Pride of the Farm ground Turkey 1 lb. rolls=10/10 ( this is a new item!)
  • Bar-S hot dogs are 10/10 (use coupon here to sweeten the deal!)
  • California oranges or grapefruit are .39/1 (great price!)
  • Golden or Red apples are .99/lb. (great price!)
That is all for this week. Please let me know what I missed. Remember one great way to continue to support this blog is to print your coupons from the widget I have on this site. You can also be sure to spread the word to friends and family that share our same Dillons ad in these great cities: Topeka, Lawrence, Winfield, Arkansas City, Hutchinson and Wellington.

***Be sure to also check out and for great E-Coupons that can be added to your Kroger card!

If you don't live in this region or are looking for an ad for another store I hope you visit The Grocery Gathering found here.

Remember you can break these up into smaller transactions if you only have a small amount of EB to spend. I plan to split mine into 2 transactions.

Take note that I am not buying the Maybelline Foundation b/c this is actually a WEEKLY deal and I already hit my limit on this earlier in the week.

Target: Games for only $4!

Did you see the Target ad this week? They have a pretty sweet deal on select games ranging from 3-6 years. Games such as Memory, Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders are all only $4!!!! This promo ends Wednesday so make sure you get in to Target before then. Remember if they are out of a certain game you want just go to customer service and ask for a reign check!

Also this week they have an okay deal on diapers. When you buy 3 jumbo packs of Huggies or Pampers you get a $5 gift card. Here is the price break down:
  • 3 Jumbo packs at 9.99=29.97
  • - 3 1.50/1 coupons=25.47 (or print $2/1 coupons from the widget on this site... thanks Libbi!)
  • -$5 gift card
Total=20.47 or 6.83/jumbo pack. Not a bad deal!

Happy Tuesday!

  • You may be aware of the Sure deal going on at Walgrees this week. Sure Deodorant is on sale for 1.99 and you can use the 1.50/1 ES coupon making this item .49/1. If you do not have the the 1/1 MF coupons from paper inserts allowing your to make overage on this product you can print a 1/1 coupon here!

Thanks to Emily for alerting me to this great .50/1 printalbe allowing you to get more FREE sour cream!

You also may be aware of the Walgreen's Werther's Deal that was mentioned on other blogs. The printable coupons and the ES coupon to not correspond with the Werther's candy that is BIGI. So be prepared that this deal will NOT work.

CVS: Limit Update!

There are a few items that possibly have a higher limit than the ad communicates.

Maybelline Mineral Foundation: On sale this week for 8.99 and get 8.99 in EB back. The ad says limit 1, but I was able to buy 2 before my receipt communicated my limit was reached!

Complete Solution: On sale this week for 8.99 and get 8.99 in EB back. The ad says limit 1, but after only buying 1 my receipt does not say my total was reached. It has been been confirmed by a reader that the limit is 5!

Crest Pro-Health 4.2 oz Whitening toothpaste: Monthly deal that is on sale for 3.49 and get 3.49 in EB back. I was able to buy 4 before my receipt communicated my total was reached!

Remember when buying above the limit the ad communicates you are doing so at your own risk!

Menu Plan Monday

I will not be doing Menu Plan Monday this week because there is not much of a week to plan with Thanksgiving and all. My brother will be home which means a lot of meals over at my parents. I also plan on using my FREE Papa John's pizza this week! If you need some ideas for great meals under $5 make sure you visit my recipes here!

Be sure to check back this week as I will be periodically posting about up coming deals for Black Friday! If you know of great deals be sure to email them to me!

Happy Monday!
