Deals and Coupon Matchups from the Sunday Ad Inserts - Nov. 28

OK, after Thanksgiving and Black Friday you've given up shopping AND eating for the rest of the year, right? So I'll just drop these ad flyers in the recycling bin without giving you a preview, right?

Oh, calm down. You and my 2-year-old -- neither of you can take teasing.

This week I'm excited about the Jewel flyer because the the Xtreme Value is 10 oz. bags of Wonderful Pistachios are buy one, get one free at $4.99. With two $1/1 coupons from the 11/15 SmartSource or if you have any of the previously available printables, these will be just $1.50 a bag! I don't know about your house, but Chez Frugalista pistachios are a sought-after stocking stuffer. I'm just kind of bummed that I used two coupons buying two bags of this at Dominick's when it was on sale at $4.99.

Other Jewel deals: General Mills cereals (the small boxes) are $1.50 if you buy multiples of four. This deal will be really good if Banana Nut Cheerios are included and you can use this $1/1 printable. And 12-packs of RC, 7-Up, Dr Pepper or Sunkist (or 6-packs of those .5L bottles) are just $2 when you buy 4. (Although personally, I don't think I'll have to buy Dr Pepper again for like a year, if ever. I'll probably be tired of it by the time I finish all the free pop I got in that one Catalina deal.)

Coupons: Usually there are no coupons on holiday weekends for some stupid reason, but today there is the December P&G BrandSaver. No SmartSource or RedPlum, though. There is a $2/1 Huggies coupon in Parade, surprisingly. It's for 48-count or higher.

Target: You can get four Berfolli frozen meals for just $1.75 each after gift card. They're $6, and you get a $5 gift card for buying four. Use four of each of these coupons: the $2/1 printable manufacturer's coupon and the $1/1 Target coupon from a 10/25 insert (not sure which one). After coupons you should pay $12 for four, then after the gift card it's like paying $7.

There's also ANOTHER Target diaper gift card offer: buy 2 Huggies or Pampers Big Packs at $18.99 each (or training pants $19.99), get a $5 gc. That's $32.98 after gift card, and if you use a couple of $2/1 coupons, you're paying $28.98. Since there are 72 size four Huggies per Big Pack, that's about 20 cents a diaper. Better than the 25-cent price to beat listed on the Baby Cheapskate chart, but I've done better. (There are 92 size 1 diapers per Big Box, making them 16 cents each. I've gotten them at 10 or 11 cents each.) But wait -- I just noticed there is still a $1.50/1 printable for Huggies on the Target coupon page. That would make the two boxes $25.98 after coupons, or 13 cents per infant-sized diaper.

More gift card offers: $20 gift card if you buy a Wii for $199.99, $15 gc when you buy certain iPods at $175 or $199

Kmart is offering a $10 off coupon (I guess a Catalina?) if you spend $40 on Huggies, Pull-Ups, Goodnights or Playskool.

Old Navy has a coupon for 25% off any single item.

Toys R Us: save $20 on any Leapfrog purchase of $75 or more. Some of the games included in the Toys R Us/Hasbro rebate are on sale, making preschool favorites like Cootie and Candyland $2.99 each.

ULTA has a flyer this week with a coupon for 20% off one item. To use it online, enter code 22273.

Carson Pirie Scott has coupons for 10% ot 20% off in store, or online with the code DEC1SUN1129. Good through Dec. 1.

Walgreens has free Complete Multi-Purpose Solution for contacts -- $7.99, get $7.99 Register Rewards (It's a moneymaker if you use the $1/1 coupon from the 10/25 RedPlum). Also free Band-Aids plus overage if you have any of those Walgreens kids activity books -- they're 2/$3, get $1 RR, and the activity book has a $2/1 coupon that will take off a total of $4, leaving you paying nothing (maybe getting $1 overage toward other purchases) and getting $1 RR. See more info on this and other Walgreens deals at Money Saving Mom.

CVS looks kind of lame this week, with no obvious freebies except an Accucheck Aviva blood glucose monitor. But you can get some products for under $1 with the Extra Bucks deals, including Benefiber, razors, deodorant, etc. Check out the details at The Thrifty Mama.
