Campbells clearance, coupons & catalinas – oh my!

Putting new link at the top of the post. MUM found another $1 printable on the Campbells’ site
photo.JPGSaw all these Campbell’s Go Soup pouches on the clearance cart at Jewel reduced to $1. Knew there was a $1 printable, so grabbed them…turns out that there is a national catalina promotion that started today (through 2/22) where you buy 2 and get a $1.50 OYNO cat, buy 3+ and get a $2 OYNO cat.  Since I didn’t know the breakdown, I split my order into sets of 5 and rolled the $2 cat into the next transaction.  This way I will still get them for free (I have a LOT of them), since there are only printables available and I don’t have that market cornered…yet…

Make sure to check your own Jewel for great clearance deals – remember, you can post-redeem up to 60 days.

cheap diaper shopping @ Jewel

Jewel is part of a national catalina – Spend $30 on Huggies products and get a $10 OYNO cat!  Jewel sells their packs for $9.99, so you can do the deal in one of several ways, depending on how many inserts you have and how coupon-friendly your Jewel store is.

photo.JPGI purchased six packages at $9.99 each.  After the sixth package scanned the $5 Instant Baby Savings came off.  I used six $3 Huggies coupons from the 1/11 S2 plus the $5/$50 Jewel coupon that reappeared on the last page of the Jewel ad on the Retale.com APP.  You can print from your phone/iPad or send it to an email.  After all that my subtotal was $31.94 or $3.65 a pack plus tax after the $10 OYNO cat.  If you are unable or don’t want to use the $5/$50 your per pack price will be $4.49.

If you have two inserts you can run the deal like this:  Buy four packages and pay $39.96 less $12 in coupons ($27.96).  You get the $10 OYNO cat, which brings your per package cost to $4.49 plus tax., the same as the above transaction.

Since there isn’t any financial benefit to buying six packages in one transaction, buy whichever you want!

100% legit shopping! who knew…

photo.JPGAnd who says you can’t save nowadays! You see here TWO transactions of Finish, Bayer, 10 Starbucks ($1 printables), Alka-Seltzer and BIC razors (BOGO coupons). I made sure to get up to $50 so I could use the $5/$50 Jewel coupon that reappeared on the last page of the Jewel ad on the Retale.com APP.  You can print from your phone/iPad or send it to an email.

Total OOP for both transactions was just under $10 (mostly high tax).

Bayerly Jewel shopping in the bitter cold

photo.JPGIf you’re looking for a way to play the Bayer coupon, this transaction involved two Bayer coupons (6 Bayer chewables), two $2.15 Finish coupons (two boxes) and one $1 Alka-Seltzer coupon (6 ct packets).  OOP was $1.49, of which 78¢ was tax.

Lisle has sizable quantities of both Finish and Bayer, so stop on over if you don’t find it at your local store.

Thank you Bayer shopping

I should point out that I have been unable to find any Bayer chewable 36 ct aspirin in any Walmarts – you know, the $2.17 ones that provide the most overage using the $10/3 coupon in the 1/4 S.  So I regrouped…

to Target, for the B2G1 Finish deal. Unfortunately, the $2.99 price being quoted in the blog-o-sphere appears to be pie in the sky pricing. However, when you combine $3.99 Finish with Bayer chewable aspirin ($2.19 each), you are looking at a much better scenario. I bought six Finish, used 4 $2.15 coupon (1/4 S), bought six Bayer, used two $10 coupons, and a quart of half & half and paid $3.99 (remember, Finish is high tax). Finish coupon is limited to 2, but I didn’t catch that.  Which is not to say I would have followed it anyway, but I was bad inadvertently…

Then I decided to check out Jewel – she shoots and scores! – where Bayer was only $2.29! And Jewel’s coupon policy allows for overage on your cart items. I bought nine Bayer, a gallon of organic milk, fancy napkins and tortillas. OOP was $3.09.  There is a new $1 Wild Harvest coupon, which I will post-redeem.  It’s a Bricks coupon, so if you have issues…

Starting on Wednesday, Jewel will have 12-20ct Finish on sale for $2.99. 70¢ Finish is a great price after the coupon, but toss in the Bayer and it’s back up the truck time, folks!

Jewel & Staples shopping

photo 2.JPGFYI, the water goes up to 3/$10 with tomorrow’s ad – good if you’re  buying the larger Nestle water bottle multipaks, but not so good if you’re picking up the junior ones!  Lisle still has about 24 cases of the juniors on the floor, so if you haven’t been able to grab any, head on over.  While you’re there, you might want to stock up on Carl Buddig Premium Deli meats, which are BOGO through January 6th.  Use two 75¢ coupons from 11/02 S or 12/7 S and you’ll pay only 50¢ a pack!  Jewel’s coupon policy allows both coupons, but the cashier has to manually enter in the second one.

photo 1.JPGStaples has these Iris 54 qt totes with latching handles for $5 (save $9) on the front page of the current ad. Use this $5/$25 Staples coupon and pay only $4 each. These are nice and sturdy. While you’re there, price match the Office Max Sharpie marker deal and walk out with two free packs of markers!

Update: Nestle 24 pk water @ Jewel – now with coupons!

16149719492_e1513c41e1There’s a $1/2 printable on Nestle’s website: Play the Start the Year Off Right sweepstakes for a chance to win water for a year (among other prizes). Even when you lose (notice I didn’t say if), you get the option of printing out a $1/2 coupon two times. This is a Bricks coupon, which some people have difficulty printing.  Says you can enter once a day, but I don’t know if you can also print out a coupon – – which would be totally sweet!

Buy 24 pks of Nestle juniors size water; they’re ringing up at $1.99 (shelf tag reads $4.29) which is a sweet deal to begin with – but – buy four and you’ll get a $5 catalina!  Some packs also have $1/2 peelies, which brings your OOP even lower!  The terms of this national catalina promotion are Buy 2 get $1, Buy 3 get $3 and Buy 4+ get $5.  It runs through 1/25/15.

Without coupons you will pay $3.10 for transactions 2 and beyond; your first one will be $8.10.

I’d read that the larger size bottles were also ringing up at $1.99, but I tried ALL larger size bottle multipaks and all rang at $4.29.  You’d still get the cat, but why bother?

Water under a buck for 24 pk @ Jewel

photo.JPGJust got back from Jewel after stock-up shopping (check your clearance section, too, ’cause Holiday foods are appearing):  Buy 24 pks of Nestle juniors size water; they’re ringing up at $1.99 (shelf tag reads $4.29) which is a sweet deal to begin with – but – buy four and you’ll get a $5 catalina!  Some packs also have $1/2 peelies, which brings your OOP even lower!

Without coupons you will pay $3.10 for transactions 2 and beyond; your first one will be $8.10.

clearance meat & end-of-the-year shopping

photo.JPGThe end of the year, which means that I have lots and lots of FREEBIE coupons expiring – there’s nothing sadder than an expired coupon, is there?

This receipt totaled over $230, but that included many, many packages of clearanced pork chops and country ribs, six bottles of uber-expensive Nature Made vitamins, a 12-pk of Diet Coke and more.  After-coupon total was $39.  Earned 23 stamps.
