We'll start with Fareway, based on the Le Mars ad. Please check your local ads for specifics! If you're hungry for some brownies, or just want to add to your pantry, we have Pillsbury brownie mix @ .99. I also see Land O Lakes Lemonade 1/2 gallon for .99, Kraft Salad dressing @ 1.88, Red Delicious apples @ .76/lb., Totino's pizza rolls @10/$10, and store brand white bread @ .98. I am not currently seeing coupons available for any of these items, so be sure to check the database again before heading to the store, as some may come available later...particularly check on Sundays when new coupons come out!
Hy-Vee has a 2-Day Sale on May 15 & 16 that includes 7-Up 6 pack bottles @ 6/$10, bananas @.35/lb., Old Orchard Juice Cocktail select varieties @ .99, Michelina's Zap'ems @ .59, Peter Pan Peanut Butter @ $1.68, and PowerAde 32 oz. @ 15/$8 with store coupon. There should be a coupon for $1/5 on the Michelina's here, bringing them down to .39 each when you buy 5! This could be good for a quick lunch with the kids being home over the summer! And again, be sure to check the database for the other items before shopping!
In Hy-Vee's regular ad we have Dole classic iceberg, shredded lettuce, or classic coleslaw @.88/bag and earn .01 fuel saver with each bag purchased. There are store coupons for Crystal Light drink mix @ 3/$5, Chef Boyardee pasta buy 4 @.98 get one free, and Doritos or Ruffles chips @ 3/$5. Remember, you can stack manufacturer's coupons with store coupons, and the database shows there may be a $1/2 coupon for the Crystal Light in the 4/27 Smart Source insert, bringing that price to 3/$4. I am seeing a $1/4 printable for the Chef Boyardee at coupons.com, making your price $2.92 for 5 cans when you use both coupons (think kids at home this summer)! The database notes that this is a manufacturer's coupon that says "redeemable at Walmart" on it. Be aware that this does NOT mean that you cannot use it elsewhere. If it says "manufacturer's coupon", has a remit to address, and if it doesn't say, "redeemable ONLY at Walmart", that is only a suggestions and you should still be able to use it anywhere. Be aware your cashier may or may not know this and you may need to gently and patiently educate them of this. :-) Ready for BBQ season? Time to STOCK UP on Sweet Baby Ray's barbeque sauce @ .99...but WAIT...that's not all! There should be a $1/2 coupon here, bringing the price to only .49/bottle when you buy 2, or print two coupons and buy 4 at that price! (It tells me I've already printed that coupon, so I could either try a different computer or perhaps I'll be okay with several already in my stock from a previous sale!) ;-)
Those are the deals I'm seeing this week! While it may not seem like there are a lot of available coupons, don't let that discourage you. Sometimes you may come across them when you least expect it! Always be on the lookout for coupons that are stuck to product (known as "peelies") and tear-off coupons on the shelves (known as "tear pads") when you're at the stores! Here is one example from this past week. I was at the meat counter at Fareway, purchasing a small package of Iowa Chops, when my "ever-coupon-searching eyes" saw a coupon on a tear pad on top of the meat counter for...PORK CHOPS! $1 off any package! This is not the first time I have found pork coupons there, so ALWAYS check the top of the meat counter and always be watching for those unexpected surprises! Who knows, you may even find that elusive meat coupon!
