Grocery deals 6-9

Posted June 9, 2010

This week there are lots of great produce deals, free Daisy sour cream at Lowes Foods, tons of cereal on sale and many condiment deals.

Harris Teeter
6-9 to 6-15

 

e-Vic Specials this week:

Tide Detergent, 50 oz $4.77 - .35/1 coupon from 6/6 = $4.07, limit 1

Clorox Bleach, 96 oz. $1.17, limit 1

HT yourhome paper towels, 8 roll $4.77, limit 1

Palermo’s Pizza, 13 – 32 oz $2.77 (limit 1 at this price) - $1.00/2 printable coupon. If you buy 2, one is on sale for $2.77 and the other is $3.33. The total for 2 with coupon and e-Vic = $5.10 ($2.55 each – a good deal). If you sign up for newsletter, they send you a coupon for $1.00/1 pizza.


Weekly Meal Deal:
Buy one Rosina’s Meatballs, 32 oz. for $7.75 and get the following items free: 13 oz Celentano cheese ravioli, 24 oz Newman’s Own pasta sauce, 11 oz Pepperidge Farm Garlic Texas Toast , 2 liter of Pepsi Product. Must purchase the 5 items in one transaction. Savings on the 5 free items (according to the ad) = $10.42.

So, is this a good deal? Since I don’t like ground beef and never eat meatballs, it’s not for me. BUT, if you buy these meatballs anyway, it is a good deal. The meatballs end up being $3.87 per pound so you will definitely have leftover for at least one more meal (or more if you use less than 1 lb of meatballs per meal). If I were buying the items that are free I would probably spend about $3.50 on them total with sales and coupons, so unless you usually pay full price for the items, you are not really saving $10.42, as the ad indicates. But, they are still free and if you normally eat meatballs and can stretch the bag of meatballs into 2-3 meals, it’s a pretty good deal. Throw in a veggie at $1.50 or so and the total for the meal is under $5.50 (as long as you only use 1 lb of the meatballs in the meal).

    Thanks for the deal Melissa. I do wish there was an Aldi's closer to me.

    Great Kroger savings, itsmyopinion!

    LAXmom- it's always nice when those kiosk coupons match what you are already buying!

  • itsmyownopinion Jun 12, 2010

    "Hey, this is Cece from Henderson, so far this year alone, i have saved $350.00 just a foodlion alone....They love to see how i buy so much groceries and then pay so little.....Cece"

    Are you talking about from your MVP card, or from coupons?
    I may be comparing apples to oranges by making this statement, but I have saved $637 off my register receipts, using my Kroger Rewards card, and I don't buy all that much for one.

  • twinredheads Jun 11, 2010

    Aldi's has blueberries on sale for $.99 a pint. They are excellent!

  • LAXMom12 Jun 10, 2010

    I have been getting good use out of the Food Lion coupon kiosk. Last time I was there, I used every coupon except one. They were on items that were already on sale.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Jun 10, 2010

    Itsmyopinion - thanks for the Kroger banana info and the corn review.

    Hi Cece! Great to hear from you again. Are you still doing the coupon swaps? Congrats on your fabulous savings and thanks for sharing!

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Jun 10, 2010

    Thanks for the perdue deal at HT, early!

    Mommymia - Kroger rings up their BOGO sale items at half price so they normally only take off the sale price for a BOGO coupon. For instance, if the product is regularly $2 and it is on sale BOGO, each one will ring up at $1.00 each at the register. If you then presented a BOGO coupon, the cashier would deduct $1 for the price of one of the items. Your total would be $1 for both items (.50 each - a 75% savings). In some cases, the cashier will enter the regular price and both will be free but that is usually not the case at Kroger. At store like CVS, where they have a true BOGO (pay full price for one and one is free) you will get both items free if they are on sale BOGO and you have a BOGO coupon. Please let me know if you have any other questions!

    Kim - the drug store deals were posted on Sunday and you can find them here:
    http://www.wral.com/5onyourside/smartshopper/blogpost/7732980/

    You didn't see them on the home page of the blog because I posted enough blog posts since Sunday to move it to the second page of the blog. You can find older posts by clicking on "older posts" at the bottom of the blog home page. Hope that helps! :-)

  • itsmyownopinion Jun 9, 2010

    Kroger's bananas are cheaper than Walmart, and has been cheaper than any store I've dropped in for more than a year. Also, Kroger's fresh corn is the best I've found anywhere. I shop the New Bern location.

  • mommymia375 Jun 9, 2010

    If the Gillette body wash at Kroger is BOGO, and the coupon is BOGO, then what do you pay?
