JC Penneys Sale

JC Penneys is having a killer clearance sale. They have lots of things (in EVERY department) for 75% off PLUS an additional 50% off! So anything with a little green or a little pink price tag is an ADDITIONAL 50% off that price. Also around the store they have "Price Check" stations where you can scan something to check the price. Some of the things scan for WAY cheaper than they are marked. For example, I bought a rug that was originally priced $60, but marked down to $29, but I price checked it and it rang up for $7.50.

Here are some of the deals that I got or just saw and wanted :)
Universal Remote control regular $19.99, paid $1.97
American Living (Ralph Lauren) sheets reg. $150.00 paid $34
American Living sheets reg. $135.00, paid $17.00
Assorted Ties, reg $29-$38, paid $3-$5
Beddding Set (comforter, 2 shams, skirt) reg $159.99, paid $19
American Living rug, reg $29, paid $3
jeans, reg $48 paid $6

Orville Redenbachers popcorn Deal-update

I just got back from Albertsons where I got 16 boxes of Orville redenbachers Microwave Popcorn for $9.40, but I got $5 back, so if you count that, then it came to $4.40 for 16 boxes!

Here's EXACTLY what I did...printed out 2 coupons for $1/1 box at
got the 2 coupons from Jan 18th Sunday Paper (Smart Source section) for $1/2 boxes
At the Albertsons, I got the coupon from the display that says "FREE Extra Box with Coupon" This coupon makes it so you buy 1, get 3 free. So you need 4 of those to buy 16 boxes.

Get 16 boxes of popcorn, 4 coupons from the store display, and 4 coupons from internet or newspaper. Pay. Should come to $9.40 or so after coupons (depending which ones you have). After you pay and cashier shuts the drawer, get your $5 OYNO!
Yahoo! There you have it! 16 boxes popcorn for $4.40!

If you have access to more than 1 printer, you can print 2 of the $1 coupons at each printer...making it an even better deal. Our Albertsons (Cherry Lane in Meridian) has the "Free Extra Box" coupons at the register, and if you can find "Bill" over there, he may have some of the $1/2 coupons left.

OYNO stands for On Your Next Order. It is a coupon that prints at the register that you can use on your next purchase of anything. When I bought my 16 popcorns, I also did the buy 1 get 1 free culinary circle pizza with 2 free doctor peppers. I did this in 2 separate orders. First I bought the popcorn, paid $9.40, got my $5 OYNO, then I bought my 2 pizza's and 2 Dr P, which came to $6.49, used my $1 off coupon (see post below), used my $5 OYNO from the popcorn, so out of pocket was $.88 with tax.

UPDATE (Feb 3rd) The $5 OYNO is no longer printing as of Saturday. But the popcorn is still buy one get one free, or buy 1 get 3 free with instore coupon. (This deal ends today though!)

As part of the "Get $15 back when you spend $30" Deal listed below are Pampers Diapers, which ALSO qualifies for the "Spend $25 on baby products, get $5 back" deal. So...when you buy 3 packages of the pampers diapers--the ones that are on sale for $10.69 or $10.00--you will get $15 back AND $5 back! So 3 packages of diapers will end up being $10 bucks! And if you can find coupons you can use those AND you can use the "Double your coupon" coupon in the ad, and get them for even less! For example, if you had 3 $1 off coupons, and used the "double your coupons coupon" in the ad, you would save an additional $6, making them $4 for 3 bags diapers! I called my Albertsons and had them order me a couple cases in the sizes I needed, because you'll probably be lucky to find these once the word gets out...

Remember, to get the $20 back (in $5 catalina coupons, usable on your next purchases), buy EXACTLY 3 packages of the $10 pampers at a time. You can buy more, just keep buying in sets of 3. You can use the $20 coupons that print out towards additional sets of three diaper, or on anything else.
