Okay the GM cereal deal is way better than I thought! Thanks to my great friend for pointing this out!

If you get the Pssst emails you can print out a $1/1 GM cereal coupon good for $1/1 Trix, Cocoa Puffs, Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Lucky Charms in your email. If you don't get those emails then simply go to this post here and find the $1/1 GM cereal link listed in the post. Make sure you use 2 computers and print out 3!!! Then do this deal at Hy-Vee:
  • Buy 3 Participating Cereals (ad shows Trix, Cocoa Puffs and Lucky Charms)=$7.50
  • Use 3 $1/1 coupons
Total OOP=$4.50 and then you get a $3.75 off your next milk purchase catalina back...making your MILK FREE or you can look at like getting 3 boxes of cereal for only .75!!!

Cellfire working...

I was told last week, and noticed myself, that my cellfire links were having issues. They should be resolved now and the new coupons should be popping up on the load pages. A few select coupons will not show up on the load page due to the manufacturer's restrictions so once you are into your account simply select the deals tab and load whatever coupons are left.

You have until next Monday to load the current coupons. Be sure to do so HERE!


Thank you Laura for emailing me about this!

"Hy-Vee has General Mills Cereals $5/2. When I bought 4 last night, I got a catalina for $3.75 off milk courtesy of General Mills."

Be sure to use $1/2 coupons HERE or from recent inserts to get these for $2 a box! Also I think Hy-Vee milk is actually priced around $2.67 a gallon so you will actually get overage on the deal!

Does anybody know anything else about this? Like if you have to buy 4 boxes or when it ends?

Dillons: .99 Cheese!

At 21st and Fairlawn there is a sign advertising Kroger 8 oz. shreds and blocks of cheese for .99/1!!!! It says the deal is good 12/2-12/8... some how that skipped the ad:)

Anyway I don't know if it is just the Fairlawn store or all stores but this is a great deal to get before tomorrow is over!!!!

Wishbone Coupon

I checked this morning to see if any new coupons popped up over the weekend and sure enough there was 1 I thought was worth mentioning!

.75/1 Wishbone coupon! Dillons will often put these on sale for $2 or less and after the coupon is doubled you can get these for $1 or less! It beats the Aldi price of $1.19/1!
