Sunday Paper Ads and Coupons: Free Fannie May Chocolate

chocolate.jpg

Today's Tribune has a one-page ad for Fannie May chocolates with two $10 off coupons: One for use in-store and one online coupon code, which is 10566. There is no minimum purchase, but it looks like neither coupon can be used on sale items. In-store at least you should be able to get just under half a pound of chocolate for free. On the Web site, though, the cheapest full-price items I see are over $20. Still, the coupon also takes off $7.25 to make shipping free, so if you have a gift recipient who appreciates fine chocolate this would make it a lot cheaper. (By the way, Dominick's has Pixies on sale this week for $14.99 for a 1-lb. box. The coupon and Web site would be a slightly better deal, because the total there would be $14.88 including tax. And no, you cannot use the $10 off coupon at Dominick's -- Fannie May retail locations only.)

Highlights of the other coupon inserts: RedPlum has $3 off coupons for several DVDs or BlueRays, including Curious George: A Very Monkey Christmas, Coraline, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, as well as regular movies like Funny People, Inglorious Bastards and Public Enemies.

SmartSource has a coupon for a free Kraft Macaroni & Cheese when you buy three.

There is a page of coupons for Arby's

Parade has a $2/1 coupon for Viactiv Soft Chews Dietary Supplement. I have some of these and they taste OK.

Dominick's has an insert inside the regular ad called "12 days to save," featuring coupons for 12 free items, good one day each with $20 purchase. Most of them are worth $1 or less -- Fresh Express salad, Betty Crocker cake mix, eggs, 5 lbs. of potatoes, etc. On Monday Dec. 21 the coupon is for chocolate chips; I like that one.

Jewel's flyer has not much notable except that the $1 Progresso soup price is going all week. Oh, and holiday M&Ms are $2, and there's a $1/2 in the RedPlum (in addition to the $1/2 printable on Coupons.com).

Target has a bunch of gift card offers as usual, but the sales that really catch my eye are 1) a Garmin nuvi GPS unit for $99, regular price $149 and 2) RockBand 2, Guitar Hero World Tour, Tony Hawk Ride OR DJ Hero are all $88 each, regular $119.99 to $159.99.

Toys R Us has games on sale for $7.99, $4.99 after mail-in rebate: Trouble, Twister, Connect 4, Operation and Battleship.

CVS has a few free-after-Extra-Bucks items throught Tuesday: 12-count paper bows, tissue paper and peel 'n' stick gift tags, and you can get free disposable Soleil razors after coupon. Other than that it looks pretty blah, but see For the Mommas for a full account.

Walgreens looks pretty blah too but I bet they will have lots more freebies coming up in the Wednesday ad. See Money Saving Mom for the rundown.

Carson Pirie Scott says you'll earn a $10 off coupon for every $50 you spend there until Dec. 24.

Macy's has a coupon for an extra 20% off Sunday and Monday only, with the usual restrictions.

Old Navy has a coupon for 40% off a single item (too bad I did my shopping this past week with the 25% coupons).

Michaels has the usual 40% off one item coupon but also has a coupon for an extra 25% off frames, and wall frames are already 50% off. (I should really get over there this week since I ordered my 8x10 prints for the granparents already.)

Kmart has a lot of DVDs on sale for $14.99 and Blu-Ray for $22.99, including Up and Santa Buddies. Also a lot of old or not-so-great DVDs for $5.

Sports Authority has a coupon for 10% off a purchase of $100 or more.

Bed Bath & Beyond has a one-page flyer with a coupon for 20% off one item. Also, it says you'll get another 20% off one item coupon if you sign up for their email list.

Thank you so much for your post about the $10 Fannie May Coupon. My husband LOVES chocolate covered cherries and he asks for it every Christmas. I just bought a half pound of them at Fannie Mae and paid just 0.39 cents!
