Zaycon Foods — Boneless skinless chicken back down to $1.89/lb!

Nice! Zaycon chicken briefly went up to $2.49/lb — but they extended the date of the event and found more supply, so the price is back down to $1.89/lb for their boneless skinless chicken breast. If you ordered at the $2.49 price, you’ll get the $.60/lb credit back in your account (heads up that they’re crediting toward future purchases rather than refunding) sometime within the next couple of days.

It’s nice to have chicken in the freezer to pull out for easy Crock Pot meals (*coughslowcookersalsachicken*) when you have a busy day and want dinner to just be ready when you get home from kids’ activities!

Reader deals 9/10/14

Here are some of the deals (and heads up!) YOU found recently — Thanks! How do you share your own deal?

If you are sharing a deal from another site or an online coupon, please include the link. If you found a deal at a specific store, please include the location.

  • *** Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Fairplay

  • From susie: “Fairplay foods in Oak Lawn has the Totino’s party pizza (9.8-10.8 oz) on sale for $.49 each when you buy 5 and the totino’s pizza rolls (7.5) for $.99 each when you buy 5. I was wondering if anyone has tried these products before, how are they, and if that is a good price for the products?” They are definitely geared toward a certain palate, haha! But if you are going to buy them, that is a good price.
  • A response from julie: “Hubby and I lived off those totinos pizzas in college. We must have been having too much fun in college, though, as we tried one more recently and each discarded it after 1 bite.” Rachel agrees that the are more for the college/high school set, but there are party pizza coupons to print in the Berkot’s deals here if you want to try: http://www.mashupmom.com/top-ten-berkots-deals-week-91114-91714/.

Household tips

  • Suzann says: “When I find the lidded clear shoe boxes for $0.99 or anything less than $1.50, I load up. They are also great for pantry and fridge storage.” And freezer!

Reader requests

  • Lori is wondering about Opinion Outpost: “Does anyone know how much personal info they need when you sign up?”
  • A Jewel question from Diane: “Does anyone know if the Heart Smart is included in the Bisquick sale? Thanks!”
  • If anyone has used the free milk at Ultra mobile coupon, Shandelle wonders: “lol yes exactly what I wanted to know. I won’t be able to get out to the burbs to an Ultra for a couple weeks, next time a friend visits me that has a car. Anyone try this can confirm what the exp date says??”
  • From Mandy: “Anyone in the western Chicago burbs that has a roof antenna and loses their signal on some channels when it rains or is really windy? I think we need a new one, but, husband insists that it’s fine, and everyone loses certain stations in bad weather. All the neighbors we know have satellite or cable, so, no asking them. We usually lose the 9’s, 11’s, 38’s, and sometimes 2.” Rachel says she loses 2 as well.
  • Becky asks: “Hmmm…..Went to download this [free Demi Lovato album] and it said I needed to add a payment method. At first i cancelled but it showed 0 dollars so I tried to add paypal and it said paypal was declined and to try again later. Anyone else having problems?”

Target

  • Patty shares: “The deal worked great and I even received another 5% off with my Target card. Cartwheel, however, took forever to load. Luckily, I had my Cartwheel code printed out already, so the cashier could easily scan it. BTW, Mucinex Allergy isn’t Mucinex(guaifenesin) at all. It’s really fexofenadine, which is the generic Allegra. But with this deal, it’s cheap and that’s all that matters!”
  • On the Pillsbury melts cookies, Allison noticed: “There is also a Cartwheel for these for 10% off until 9/13.”
  • And Mary Beth reports: “These are kind of pricey – about $3.50″
  • Kerri shares: “I found a five pack of sterlite containers with pink lids at target for under $5. And there was a 10% off sterlite on cartwheel. They are about the same size [as the boxes Suzann mentions above]. They work perfect for the fridge! (Without the lids) I have 2 more left over to organize the stuff in the pantry for lunches.”

Zaycon

  • Kate points out: “Zaycon has the bacon available for purchase again as well!”

Did you order your Zaycon chicken for next month yet?

Be sure to reserve your fall boneless skinless chicken breast order from Zaycon Foods: This time at $1.89/lb. Illinois events are in October, and I’ve been trying to make space in the freezer for ours by finishing up the chicken from last time — I’ve gotten their chicken several times and always been very pleased. Last week, we had salsa chicken in the crock pot (2-2.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast in the bottom, add a packet of taco seasoning and a jar of salsa, cook 8+ hours on low then shred) with guac made with the cheap ALDI avocados + the cheap ALDI tortillas.

italian-chicken

Yesterday, I made Italian chicken in the crock pot (yeah, it’s fall, people!). Pour about 1/2 cup Italian dressing in the bottom of the slow cooker (I used the $.48 Kraft from Ultra a while back when it was $.98 on an instant deal & had $1.00/2 peelies). Add 2-2.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast. Season with some Italian seasoning, salt, pepper. Add about 2 lbs sliced potatoes on top ($.98 a bag at Pete’s the other day), pour on another 1/2 cup Italian dressing and add a little minced garlic. Cook 6 hours on low. Serve with a veggie or some fresh fruit on the side.

It’s nice to have chicken in the freezer to pull out for easy Crock Pot meals when you have a busy day and want dinner to just be ready when you get home from kids’ activities!
