What is WITH expiration dates lately shoppingPosted at 2:16 pm by rachel in cvs, jewel, shopping trips
I had no desire to shop again, but realized my $5.00 Catalina from buying tuna at Jewel 2 weeks ago expired today, so had to go. You just can’t throw away $5.00. Luckily I was driving by both Jewel and CVS on the way to other errands today, so…
Clearance white crabmeat, $1.33.
Clearance lump crabmeat, $1.99.
Bird’s Eye Steamfresh brown rice, $1.00. Used $1.00/1 printable (no longer available).
1/2 lb-ish Di Lusso roast beef, $4.89. Used $1.00/1 in the 1/13 SS.
1/2 lb-ish Di Lusso mesquite turkey, $4.15. Interestingly, $4.29 came off for the BOGO 1/2 lb promo. Used $1.00/1 in the 1/13 SS.
Paid with the $5.00 Catalina and $1.07. Net cost: $6.07.
Dean’s milk, $2.49. Used $1.00/1 from the Jewel grand re-opening booklet they gave out in store a long time ago (expires today, if you have any left!).
So … Net $7.60, out of pocket $2.60. I’d also found applesauce cups on the clearance shelf at Jewel, but no shelf tags, and the barcode was crossed out, so they wouldn’t scan for a price. Finally found someone to ask and she refused to sell them to me, saying that they don’t cross out barcodes and she would send them back for credit instead. Very un-Jewel-like, huh. Guess the kids can eat crab meat out of the can instead…
Now for the expired part
The South Elmhurst Jewel had a nice clearance shelf today… but ew. No one wants a big tub of Shopper’s Value shortening that expired September 2012 — can you say: rancid?
I also found Nestle white chocolate baking bars for $1.07, which seemed great until you flipped them over.
Anyway, a couple other non-expired items of note:
La Preferida cheese sauce for $.72.
Maxwell House international chai latte, $1.15. If you like this and are in the area: 62946 here gets you $1.00/2 Maxwell House International.
Slim-fast bars, $2.74. There’s $1.00/1 in the 1/6 RP and 1/27 RP.
And on the clementines
Some of you were asking how much clementines are at Jewel. They had the 5-lb boxes for $5.99, so $4.99 after the $1.00/1 store printable here.
