I just went to Hy-Vee this morning and bought 2 Old El Paso items and to my surprise I got a $1 off my next purchase catalina!!! This following deal is running until 10/4 (started 9/11):
  • Purchase any 2 Old El Paso Taco shells, dinner kits, seasoning, refried beans or heat and serve sides get a $1/off you next purchase catalina
  • Purchase any 6 of the above items and get a $3 off your next purchase catalina
Here is how my deals worked out this morning since I didn't know about the deal:
  • Bought 2 Taco shells=$3
  • -.60/2 coupon printed here
  • Total=$2.30
I got a $1 OYNP catalina back which makes my total $1.30 or only .60 for each box of shells... you can't beat that price!

After I got my catalina I went back and purchased 2 more items:
  • 2 cans of refried beans=1.98
  • -.60/2 coupon printed here
  • -$1 catalina
Total=.38 and I got a $1 catalina back!

Be sure to look for the boxes of taco shells that have the "Buy 2 products get a FREE seasoning packet" coupon on them to get a better deal!

A few more Deals:

I forgot to mention that last week at Dillons a friend alerted me that Dannon yogurt 4 packs, 6 packs, Dananimals and the large tubs of yogurt were all marked at a regular price of 1.88/1! Use the Dannon coupons that came out in the recent inserts to get any 1 of these for only .88/1! We love the Dananimals yogurt drinks!

Also you can read here about printing a $1/1 Keebler Fudge shoppe coupon... this would go great with the buy 3 get FREE milk deal going on!

I am curious to see if any of you use this service or buy/sell or trade on ebay? Leave a comment if you wish letting us know your thoughts on this type of stuff:)

I had a reader email and ask the following question:

"I was wondering if there was any kind of program in the Topeka area for wholesale type buying. There was a group in Phoenix called Bountiful Baskets that purchased direct from suppliers of grocery stores and restaurants with contributions from area shoppers who then ended up with a bi-weekly supply of amazingly inexpensive various produce items that filled a laundry basket."

I am unaware of anything like this, but then again I do not know everything:) So I thought I would ask all of you super smart readers what you might know. If we don't have something like this in or around Topeak do any of you have any good suggestions for starting something up?

Thanks and I hope you all had a great weekend... as you can tell by my lack of posts ours was BUSY!
