Dillons: Fiber One Bars ONLY $.40/box!

I posted earlier today about certain GM and Quaker products being 50% off for a 3-day sale at Dillons. A friend of mine and I were talking about this possible Fiber One Bar deal:

Fiber One Bars - Regular Priced at $3.29
Half Off= $1.65

Buy 4 = $6.58
Use 4 $.50/1 printable coupons
Use $.50/1 loadable
Use $.50/2 loadable

Final Price - $1.58 for 4 boxes or only $.40/box!

I think you could possibly get certain GM cereals for FREE or less than $.50/box with the right coupons. Let me know if you know any prices for the GM cereals participating!

Dillons: 3-Day Sale!

General Mills & Quaker Sale 50% Off 3 Days Only 8/5-8/7

Participating products:
General Mills Cereal (10.6-25.25 oz.), Quaker Life Cereal (14-16 oz.), Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks (6-10 ct.), Fiber One Chewy Bars (5 ct.), Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters (5 oz.), Quaker Instant Oatmeal (10.9-16.2 oz.) or Quaker Oat Squares Cereal (16 oz.)

I am not sure about the starting price. I would say a $1 or less is my ideal price for these items after coupon and catalina promotions. Let us know if you come up with any great deal scenarios!

You can head over to Frugal Fritzie and she gives a HUGE compilation of every coupon and catalina promotion you want to know about for this sale!

I will be back later today with the other Dillons deals!

I Forgot!

I honestly forgot that yesterday was Wednesday. I knew it was Wednesday, but forgot all about posting anything. Having my husband off work this entire weeks put a kink, a good one, in my usual daily/weekly routines.

I will hopefully have something up later today! Sorry!
