Let's get busy with the ads now. Let's start with Hy-Vee's 3-Day sale. I'm not sure whether this is corporate or Le Mars only, so be sure to check your local paper to verify:
* Coke products 12 packs @ $2.40 (limit 4)
* Energizer Max Batteries AA or AAA 8 packs @ $2.99
.50/1 or $1/1 coupon may be available in 1/4 Smart Source newspaper insert
Watch for possible rebates on specially marked packages and get $8 back when you buy 2! Be sure to check the expiration on the rebates since there are some packages out there for previous years that will not work this year! If you find these, you're looking at making money on this deal!
* Nestle Dark Chocolate Mint Morsels 10 oz. @ .49
* Lay's Stax chips (select varieties) @ .75/can

Buy 2 get free milk coupon in 1/18 Smart Source insert
Word has it, that for a limited time, you may also receive a catalina for free milk when you buy 2 of these cereals, so great deal if it works and better deal if you have the coupon too! I believe the catalina deal expires 1/31.
