So let's start with Fareway. I am not sure if this is a corporate ad, so be sure to check your local ad since there may be some differences. The first thing that jumped off the page at me was the 80% ground beef @ $1.99/lb. in 10lb. tubes or $2.19/lb. in smaller packages (limit 10 lb.)! I have not seen ground beef this low in a long time! I like the 80% for grilling burgers. *Here's a little bonus tip for when you buy that big tube: Divide and put into quart-sized freezer bags (1 lb. each), then flatten the beef into the shape of the square bag, squeezing out the air. This will allow your beef to freeze and thaw faster, plus it stacks nicely in your freezer! Then, when I take it out for grilling, I can cut the square into quarters and I'll have 4 square burgers ready to go! Now back to the Fareway ad...to go with the grilling theme, we also have the 38 oz. bottle of Heinz ketchup @ $1.48 (limit 1), Blue Bunny ice cream 4 qt. pail @ $3.99, Lay's potato chips @ $1.88, and Oscar Mayer hot dogs @ .99. We also have a store coupon for Kraft Miracle Whip @ $1.99. Coupons to go with these deals are as follows: There could be .50/1 for Heinz ketchup in the 5/4 Red Plum insert and a .75/1 or $1/2 coupon in the 5/11 Smart Source insert. There is a limit of one with the store coupon, so hopefully you will have the .75/1 manufacturer's coupon in your insert. We also have Cool Whip @ .99, Van Camp's baked beans @ .77 and Old Orchard frozen concentrate Lemonades & Harvest Select juices @ .88. There is a $1/4 coupon for the Old Orchard here that is valid on the Harvest Selects, bringing the cost to .63 when you buy 4!
Let's look at Hy-Vee! Their regular ad also has the Lay's @ $1.88 and has a store coupon for Pepsi products @ 4/$8.98 that includes the 12 pack cans, 8 pack bottles, or 6 pack bottles. They have Kraft dressings @ 3/$5 and you may find a coupon for these in the 5/18 Smart Source insert. They also have the 4 quart Blue Bunny @ $3.98 (but it includes .03 fuel saver, making it a slightly better deal), .88 hamburger buns and hot dog buns, Bush's beans @ $1.48, Cool Whip @ .98 with store coupon, Chicken of the Sea tuna @ .77, and Barilla pasta @ $1.00 each! The database is showing a $1/2 printable for the Barilla at coupons.com and I found a $1/3 coupon for the Chicken of the Sea while shopping last week, so watch for those in the stores! Did you miss out on the BBQ sauce deal last week? Never fear...Hy-Vee has KC Masterpiece @ .99 this week. I am not currently seeing a coupon for this, but be sure to search the database before heading out. Also, the Le Mars local ad shows Garland Jack's Secret Six BBQ sauce at only .49/bottle, so if you'll be in town, pick some up (limit of 6)! While you're there, you can also pick up some Old El Paso Taco Shells @ .59 that is shown in the local ad!
Those are my favorites this week!
Happy Savings and have a safe Memorial Day weekend if you'll be on the road!
