“Gotta love great deals” offers

Two notes here:

  1. Says “get over $9 in web-exclusive savings” at This link is not yet live — when it goes live, I’ll tell you what they are.
  2. Last time they did this wording, they ran better sales on each of the items on daily deals. You’ll note that Cottonelle/Viva, Cereal, and Pepsi are ALSO on the four-day sale above, so we may see better prices on some more of these on limited time sales in future — but no guarantees. :)

Here’s what’s listed:

Five for $10 when you buy five

If you don’t buy five, they’re $2.99 each. Mix/match.

  • belVita.
  • Nabisco Snack Crackers.
  • Chips Ahoy.
  • Saltines.
  • Ritz.

Johnson & Johnson Deal

In-ad store coupon:

  • Since this is a store coupon you can stack manufacturer coupons with it, and matchups from what is listed in the ad are below. Note that ALL J&J manufacturer coupons now say “limit one per person.” Nice, eh?

So here are the in-ad products, but more will qualify for the coupon, so let me know if you spot any good deals in store that are not listed here:

Things to know at Jewel

Just a few…

  1. Load SavingStar “electronic coupons,” which rebate back into your SavingStar account rather than coming off at the register.
  2. SavingStar e-coupons vs Fuel Rewards e-coupons.
  3. Load e-coupons on the Jewel-Osco website.
  4. Here is the official Jewel-Osco coupon policy from July 2012.
  5. When you can and cannot use OYNO Catalinas and Register Rewards from other stores at Jewel.
  6. *** Watch your coupons with the “new” registers. On a BOGO sale, they have the tendency to scan in your second coupon at…  ZERO. Their policy has not changed, however, and you can still use two coupons on a BOGO sale; they’ll just have to enter the second one manually. ***
