Albertsons this week...slow for me

Well, the pictures of the cut slices of watermelon on the front of the ad makes me very thirsty lol..

THere is tree top apple juice is 2/$4 or if you use the store coupon it is $1.69 64oz bottles. This is supposedly FREE of lead, so its a good deal.

Tropicana 50 cartons are $2.49. If you printed those $1/1 from redplum last week, then you got yourself a good deal on orange juice!!

If you have any .50/1 powerade tearpad coupons, you can get it free. It is on sale buy 10, get 5 free=.50each

Poptarts are $1.75 if you buy 5. so if you have five coupons from zip 83642, its a great deal.

Cheezit coupons are 2.99 . If you printed the $1/1 facebook coupons=$1.99

All these items are $1 each, so dig out your coupons for alot of fun:
goldfish crackers
Bar S meat franks
Mccormick grill mates
Crest Toothpaste
Knorr Rice sides
Barilla pasta

THere is also a general mills promo that you get $5 off instantly when you buy $20 and you get extra box tops. Good deal possibly on hamburger helpers, fruit snacks, progresso soup, and yoplait with coupons, and you are able to print 5 or more coupons for each kind of item you are buying.. I happen to have 4 computers here.

well this the most promising items i see, at my first glance over the ad

Happy with your purchase, Unhappy? Let them know!

have you ever written to a company through mail or email? Either with a problem or a praise?

I have a few times. Once, i emailed dreyers to let them know the icecream i had purchased was defective. They sent me coupons for free icecream

I emailed Huggies to let them know I love their products and have used them for all 3 of my kids. I got $2 coupons, and more

I have done this a couple other times all with good results.
My most recent email, I was not even expecting to receive coupons for at all!! I was simply emailing Purina to ask where I could go to purchase a certain product of theirs. Since it was not being carried in any of the stores in the whole treasure valley, they emailed me back to let me know.
THen i also received a coupon good for up to $15 of free cat food and a couple other coupons. Boy, was I surprised and happy, too!

So the point is, if you really love a product, or really hate it or just don't know where to find it-
Try sending an email or letter to the company. You may get some really good coupons that way for the products your interested in!

need to use those FREE purina cat food coupons?

I looked for a while for the correct size, which is a 16 oz bag. No one in Treasure valley carried it. HOw do I know? I emailed Purina asking where I could find it, and they told me so LoL. they also sent me a coupon for a free bag valued up to $15 wow!! and a couple $1 off coupons too.

HOWEVER, yesterday while couponing at walmart, I just happened to walk by the pet section and there was a promotional display on the endcap full of these particular size bags. The heavens parted and I may have shouted a few words of praise, ha ha.

So, this is the ONLY place currently carrying the free bags of purina cat chow (coupons exp. 9/10)
If you have lonely coupons burning a hole in your pocket, go grab some now!!

I am sure once the promotional display is gone, it will not be found...

I was at the walmart in caldwell, but hopefully other walmarts in the boise area are also carrying this size of bag too.

$25 free groceries...

I just took a survey on for this new website called that is set to launch in January 2011
It's will be the web's largest online kids’ food store where you can shop for all the major brands plus a wide range of hard to find items and healthier options.
For signing up and taking a quick survey about what you would like to see in an online store,
you will get $25 off your first purchase, emailed to you.

Not too shabby..

Dove $2 HOTT IP deodorant or body mist

GO here for your HOTT $2/1 Dove deodorant coupon or body mist.
picture says clinical protection but coupon says ANY of either deodorant or body mist

Lead free juice/canned fruit

Remember, it is not just certain juices which may contain more than the "approved" .5 micrograms of lead per serving. There are also certain canned fruits as well that may have more lead than you want your family to ingest.

Here, you will find a list of brands that were tested and found to be higher than .5 micrograms and ALSO the list of brands that were tested that did not test positive for lead.

Tree top apple juices are said to be safe from lead and that is on sale at albertsons this week for $1.69 :)

Interestingly, only one of the brands of the mixed fruit cocktail is listed as free of lead:
Del Monte mixed fruit. However, their fruit cocktails did not pass the test. go figure.

update on my experience with the "new" walmart couponing

so, i posted back at the beginning of the month, after Walmart's first official day of their new couponing policy. They now accept nearly all coupons and competitor store coupons and even allow you to combine those store coupons with manufacturer coupons. (including albertsons doubles, target store coupons, etc)

As i previously posted (here), my first experience was super fun and the cashier did fairly well, even with it being the first day. I was pleasantly surprised that the cashiers had obviously been prepared before hand for the event and to hear that there would be further coupon training available to their cashiers. They can become "coupon specialists".
(Look for this sign up by the lighted numbers at the registers, that indicates cashiers that know all the current rules and how to ring up your coupon items more efficiently)

So, TODAY. was a new day. It was my third trip there, since the new policy change on June 1st.
I have to say, it was by far the BEST and most pleasant trip thus far!
It has only been exactly 2 weeks, since their new policy started and already the drastic change is almost tangible.

The cashier had been very well trained, was thoroughly aware of how to handle all coupons, price matching/modifying, competitor coupons, stacking store/mfg coupons, etc.
Not only that, but she had also been trained in the most efficient process of how to organize the products and coupons so that my items and coupons were rung up as quickly as possible. It was almost lightning fast compared to the usual walmart couponing experience. All that had changed in just two short weeks!

Their new training and knowledge of couponing is nothing less than amazing. Before the new coupon policies, the cashiers seldom knew what was allowed and what was not, had to often request help from supervisors, and one cashier never seemed to do things the same as the next.
Now, after their policy change, the training of coupon knowledge and efficiency makes my shopping experience there much more enjoyable, pleasant and much less stressful.

Their goal is to train all employees to handle coupons in this same way and I applaud these efforts and the time they have obviously taken to successfully implement their new policies and educate all employees.

other stores, such as Kmart, Walgreens, etc could really use a lesson or two on educating employees on proper and allowable coupon usage and ensuring all their cashiers are so thoroughly briefed and provided the opportunity to learn more about helping all of us crazy couponers!

Keep up the good work, walmart!

free root beer floats for fathers day 2010, dining deal

Free Rootbeer Floats on Father's Day Dining deal at Denny's

Want to treat Dad to a rootbeer float on Father's Day? He'll be a cheap date if you take him to Denny's, where he can grab that cold, frosty treat for free. But there are (of course!) a couple hoops to jump through first.

Get onto Denny's Facebook page and use their free Father's Day card builder. You'll pick colors, Denny's food favorites to highlight, and photos of you and Dad from your computer or Facebook profiles. Next you can either send it to Dad on Facebook, or, if he's not quite hip to that technology, you can download both the coupon and the card and e-mail them to him. The coupon must be presented in order to get your freebie, and you'll also have to buy an entree from the general or value menu.
