Taco Bell Products at Albertsons

When you buy 4 Taco Bell Products, you get $3 OYNO back,
so $ Taco Bell Refried beans are $4, get the $3 OYNO back, then buy 4 more, use the $3 OYNO, and you'll end up paying $1 for 4 cans of refried beans AND you'll get another $3 OYNO.
This also works for the Taco Bell Taco shells that are 10/$10, buy 4 and they end up being .25 a box.

The Taco Bell Dinner Kits are 2/$5. They have shells, seasoning, and salsa in them. When you buy 4 of them for $10, you will instantly get $3 off, making it $7, and then you'll get the $3 OYNO, making it $4, so they will end up being $1 each--pretty good deal, especially since the Taco Bell Seasonings are on sale for $1 each...but this way, you get the seasoning, shells, and salsa for $1.

Current Post Cereal Sale at Albertsons Ends April 7th

I HAVEN'T TRIED THIS YET! But it looks like this is a super-awesome deal:

Here's how:

Buy 2, and they will be $1.57 a box OR
Buy 5, get a $5 OYNO which makes them $.57 a box.
Find coupons, and they will be $.27 a box!

$1/2 coupon in Smart Source coupon insert from Sunday March 1st
$1/2 coupon is Smart Source insert from Sunday, March 29
$2/1 at http://www.postcereals.com/trailmixcrunch/ (only use one of these per 5 boxes of cereal, or your $5 OYNO may not print) I was able to print 5 of these before it said my limit was reached. You may have to wait up to 5 minutes to get these to print-don't know why, some printed quickly, but one took a long time...

So buy 5 at a time, (or 6 if you have $1/2 coupons) use the coupons if you have them, pay, get the $5 OYNO, and repeat!

There is a glitch in the system, and sometimes the cereals are scanning at $2.07, and the bonus $1.00 isn't coming off for buying 2 or more...they are working on fixing it, just check your reciept and go to customer service to get it corrected if it happens to you. UPDATE: I haven't had this problem...maybe it's fixed?

Costco--Morning Moo

This is a SUPER GREAT deal!
Regular price for Morning Moo is $119/50 lb bag..............$2.38/ lb
The Special Large Quantity rate is $89/50 lb bag.............$1.78/ lb
Costco right now is $55/37 lb bucket..............................$1.48/ lb

This is an incredibly awesome deal!!!!! Not only is it only $1.48 a pound, but it is ALREADY packaged in a bucket and ready to store. (and Jen said it is a cute, cowprint bucket, too!)

If you want some of this, you probably need to act on it ASAP, because it will probably go really fast, and I bet this is one of their one time things, and not something they will always have.

Walgreens Deals

I just got back from Walgreens, and they had a LOT of clearance stuff on the shelves. All the Clearance was marked with big orange tags on the shelves, so very easy to find. Here are some of the deals I got:
Colgate Toothpaste $.75
Crayola Pirates of the Caribean giant color pad $1.69 (reg 4.99)
Viadent Mouth Rinse, 30 oz $1.59 (reg 5.99)
Walgreens Mouth Wash $1.29

Their were TONS of other clearance items.

Right Guard deoderant is on sale for $2.99, and when you buy one, you get a $2 Register Rewards (RR) back. Must do one at a time to get the $2 RR for each one. If you want to buy another one, don't use the $2 RR to pay for the new one, or you won't get another $2 RR.

My friend got Crest ProHealth Toothpaste on Clearance for .95 and a $1 RR printed out. So if you find the Crest ProHealth on Clearance, only buy 1 at a time to get the $1 back. And don't use the Crest RR to buy Crest, or you won't get another RR. But you can use the Crest RR to buy the Right Guard, and still get the $2 RR for purchasing Right Guard.

Also, The Garnier Fructis Shampoos, Conditioners, Hairstyling Products are on sale for $2.99. In the Walgreens Easy Saver Catalog (ESC) there is a coupon for $2 off. There was also a coupon for $1 in the RP from Feb 8th Sunday Paper, so it is FREE! That coupon expires Sunday March 15th. And since there is a .01 overage, you have to buy something else to cover the penny, or they won't take the $1 coupon (so buy the deoderant or toothpaste, or a pack or gum... with the Garnier Fructis:-)

Free food at WinCo

I just looked at the back of my flyer for WinCo and saw that they have coupons for a free package of Bacon, and a free package of muffins, and a free dozen eggs! The flyer came in the mail (I think it was on Tuesday). The coupons expire March 25th. So I hope you can find yours!


My friend Helen just called and at the WalMart in Meridian, ID she said that by the infants section are three racks of womens and childrens clothing (leggings, fleeces, turtlenecks, etc) for $1.00!

In the womens sleepwear section are T-shirts marked as low as $1.50.

More on Albertsons...

If you buy 4 of the Kraft 2% cheeses (2 for $4) as part of the "Save $10 when you spend $25" deal, you will ALSO get back a $3 coupon good on your next purchase. Some of the stores also have blinkie coupons for .75 off of the Kraft 2% cheeses, so if you use four of those, that's another $3 saved. See post below for more info.

You can get 2 Lysol sprays for $2.98. They are on sale for 2/$7.98. Use the $3/2 coupon in the ad, and *$2/1 SS 2/1* and print up to two $1 coupons at www.lysol.com. Then your total will be $1.98 for two lysols. If have 2 of the Smart Source coupons, your total will be only .98 for 2!

*$2/1 SS 2/1...Read this as "$2 off of one from the Smart Source coupon section in the Feb 1st Sunday newspaper."

Walmart Deals? Anyone????

I RARELY go to Walmart (I have 2 teenagers, and 4 children kindergarten and under--so shopping at Walmart is a NIGHTMARE...too many distractions) So, please,if you know of any Walmart deals, let me know so I can pass them on!

Rexburg Walmart is having some KILLER case lot sales starting Saturday and going for 2 weeks. I called a local (Nampa, ID) Walmart to see if the Wally's in this district will be having the same sale. She wasn't sure, but was going to talk to the GM and get back with me...I'll let you know as soon as I find out. Otherwise, call your local Walmart and check, because it looked like a FABULOUS sale! Here is the link to check out Rexburg WalMart's sale (and hopefully ours and yours!) I'll update when I know.

UPDATE!!! Our local Walmarts (Boise area) are NOT doing the caselot sale. Bummer!
