Buy 6 Pantene ($3.50 each) and 2 Oral B cross action battery powered toothbrushes ($5.99 each) Total $32.98 Use 3 BOGO Pantene, one $3/2 and one $2 peelie (I was lucky enough to find one) Use two $3/1 Oral B Use $5/$20 hair car and $2/$10 oral care Now you are at $4.48 + tax with a $10 ECB coming back.”


  • A question from bigmoney: “Anyone know the specifics on the pub burgers 2/$4? Ad only says 8 oz. In past they were 8 oz burgers, 2 per pack. Deal! Hope it’s the same this time.”
  • Katina says: “Everyday Essential coupon in Sunday’s paper for .75 off any EE product. EE soup was .69 which makes them free. Also EE seasonings 2/1.00. Southside Jewel!!”
  • Ana reports: “Also the palermo pizza is now 2/$10 not bogo.”
  • Ashley says: “The ones I was talking about are now changed to $3.99 each they said because of the coupon issues with them being BOGO.”

  • Maureen asks: “On the popcorn/pop deal, any one know if other flavors of pop are included other than what is shown in the ad?”


  • Pampers deal idea from Mary: “Jumbo packs are usually between $10-13 most places. At $10, you could get 5 packs for $50, use $1.50 off each, get $5 oyno, $5 mperks 4 day instant, $10 baby reward, and $10 visa. That’d be $12.50/5 jumbo packs or $2.50/pack. At $13, you could do 4 packs to hit the $50 threshold. I didn’t figure out higher amounts because I don’t generally have that much extra for stocking up.”
  • Melissa says: “I also think you can still save 5% on baby purchases if you use your meijer credit card. I do not remember the end date but it was listed in the ad that ended today.”
  • She also shares price info: “I got pampers jumbo packs at meijer this week. They were 8.99. Pretty sure that was the regular price.”
  • But Kaitlyn noticed: “On my home screen it says the 5/50 10/100 and 15/150 is and insta t savings on your purchase, but after I clip and look at it in my coupons it says it’s a oyno…any one else?”
  • Lisa reports: “I did the deal today.. 4 packs of cruisers, 4 packs of baby dry, 3 packs of swaddlers and a package of wipes. each pack of diapers were 8.99 and the wipes were 1.99.. I had 1.50 off each pack (2 of which I clipped on Mperks) and .50 off the wipes. I got 5% off for using my Meijer card. I got $10 from Mperks off for spending $100 (btw.. it says per transaction on it.. can I use it again?) I will hopefully get $20 in rewards (I will know in a day or so) if not definitely $10. I got $15 OYNO and a rebate slip for P&G for spending $30… my calculations come to 31.04 with tax and all rebates, rewards and OYNO.. Umm and I don’t technically have a baby. I take care of one 50 hours a week. 😀 Her parents appreciate my couponing.”

    I found Impressions (from Isotoner) slippers for $1.94 in Target. But was marked as $6.48. originally $12.99.
    I just did the price check. Even target employees were surprised to see that price.
    Few other shoes like hello kitty and Merona were ringing at $1.49- $1.94.

    Maureen I bought Diet 7-up and it worked. I tried to do the Palermo Pizza deal and they would not let me use the $2/2 because the pop was free with the popcorn :(

  3. julie says

    Also at Ultra, the Pepsi 6 packs of 24 oz bottles are included in the 4 for $8.88. The $2/2 pepsi multi-pack bottles from the 1-5 inserts covers these as well. I’d recommend these over the minis, much better price per ounce

  4. liz says

      Actually, we’ve always been able to. Since the register “upgrades” when everything now beeps, stores have gotten a lot more hinky about taking them, so now some are and some are not.

      • julie says

        CVS’ coupon policy is vague in this area and many stores seem to be defaulting to “if it doesn’t scan, it must not be right” You might want to try giving them the $off coupons before the BOGO. That way at least one of the BOGOs scanns correctly then the others beep, and the cashier may push them through.

  5. Suzann says

    Kroger is clearancing the Pillsbury refrigerated cookie chubbs for $1.00 (gingerbread, sugar and today I noticed that
    chocolate chip was included). There are $1.00 coupons off 1 (SS 12/08)–free cookies. At this price, one can experiment all
    one desires. Unfortunately, coupon expires today.

    i forgot when or who asked, but it was an inquiry about the cheapest price for organic milk. After lots of research…. I have found jewel has the cheapest organic milk. 5.79/gallon for their store brand organic. Meijer is $6.50 or so, and walmart doesn’t sell by the gallon (if you buy in 1/2 gallons the price goes up per gallon). I noticed aldi started carrying organic milk however in my location (elgin) it was only the 2% variety and it was over $3 a 1/2 gallon, so still more expensive than jewel.

    HOWEVER, I have noticed that Meijer’s expiration dates on organic milk go out much further than jewel’s do (although with 2 kids drinking organic, ive always used it up far before the expiration date.
