Dillons: 9/22-9/28

Here are the best deals I see for the week. I only post the items that I think are a good deal and I determine this by considering the Aldi price. Therefore, you will not just see couponable items in this post.

**Don't forget to load your CELLFIRE e-coupons and be sure to check COUPONS.COM and RED PLUM for any NEW coupons!**

For questions regarding Dillons or if you don't understand some of the terms I use then please read the Dillons FAQ page HERE! If you still have questions please email me and I would be happy to answer!!!

All prices posted assume the coupon has doubled and I use this site here in compiling the coupon dates. All other information, such as Aldi's price, is from my memory bank:)

Take NOTE (from
Digital Coupons Rules:
Limit of one coupon per item. Digital coupons and paper coupons may not be combined on the purchase of a single item.

However, in the new Dillons coupon policy it states that e-coupons can be used with paper coupons. At this point I am going to post both but not advocate the use of both. Soon they will do away with the stacking of e-coupons and paper coupons anyway...
