Sunday Ads: Free Dog Food or Cat Food! Free Toblerone, Free Toilet Paper

puppies.jpg

It's a pretty good week for freebies, mainly at PetSmart and Walgreen's. By using coupons and other offers this week, you can get a free bag of dog food or cat food, free men's body wash, a free box of chocolates, free lip balm, free eye drops, free Joint Juice and free toilet paper.

Wrapped around the front of the Tribune is a Dominick's ad with four freebie coupons: 1 free pound of 80% lean ground beef, 1 free Fresh Express salad, 1 free 14-16 oz. Kraft salad dressing and 1 free 12-16 oz. Prince Pasta. That's supposed to be a free pasta meal, and, no offense, Dominick's, but fatty ground beef over white flour spaghetti and an iceburg lettuce salad (that's the variety they show in the picture) with Ranch is, well, the less said the better here, I guess. I don't worry about offending Dominick's, which is a big grown up grocery chain and can take it, but want to offend any readers who might consider that meal the height of culinary fanciness. Anyhoo, the same coupons are also in the flyer inside the paper, and you have to spend $50 to use them and it's good Sunday through Wednesday.

 

Jewel-Osco has a manufacturer's coupon for $3 off a Huggies Big Pack on the back page. Also has some buy one, get one free offers through Wednesday: 3-pack fudge custard eclaires @ $3.49, 4-lb. bags of navel oranges @ $4.99 and more. Or were those already on bogo all week? They have a dozen donuts for $1.99 too, but I bought some around noon on Friday and they were already stale at my store. Guess you gotta buy 'em bright and early.

Target has baby stuff on sale, and a $40 gift card offer if you buy a Safety 1st Complete Air convertible car seat for $219.99.  And they'll give you a $5 gift card for buying two big packs of Huggies or Pampers for $19.99 each. If you got two Huggies big packs, obviously you'd want to pick up two Jewel flyers and get the $3/1 manufacturer's coupons from there. I though there was a Target coupon out there too for a large pack of Huggies but I'm not sure where -- anyone know? Anyway, if you bought 2 Huggies Big Packs for $40, deducted $6 in man. coupons and the $5 giftcard, you'd be paying $29 or $15.50 each. The chart at Baby Cheapskate says there are 64 Size 4 Huggies in a big box, so you'd be paying 24 cents apiece, which is lower than that site's "price to beat" of a quarter apiece but really isn't much of a steal. So I'd only do this deal if you really need diapers.

Target's also offering a free dozen eggs with purchase of 2 selected Simply Juice items. And DiGiorno pizzas are $4.50, use the $1/1 from the 1/24 SmartSource to get it for $3.50.

Walgreen's has a good week with five free-after-Register-Rewards items: Zicam cold sore swabs (it's $10 and you get $7 RR, but there's a $3/1 coupon on the pack), Vitamin Schtick Lip Care @ $1.99, Blink Tears @ $7.99 (use the $2/1 in this week's RedPlum to make it a moneymaker), Joint Juice @ $10 (use 50% off printable to make it a moneymaker) and Scalpicin @ $5.99 (use $1/1 printable to make it a moneymaker).

Also at Wag's: Dole fruit bowl 4-packs for $1.67, and there's a coupon for 50 cents off 2 in the 1/10 SmartSource (and there's a rebate for these, see Coupon Kim's post. Apparently in the new February coupon book there is a $1/2 Toblerone, which are already on sale $2/2. Take the $1/2 manufacturer's coupon in the 11/22 SmartSource (expired 1/30, ruh-roh) and you'll get two free. And oh man are those good. You can get four bottles of Nyquil for $2 after Register Rewards -- the deal is "spend $20, get $10 RR," and if you use four $2/1 from the 1/17 P&G insert, you'll pay $12 and get the $10 back. Also, if you go Sunday (or if your Wag's is not strict about expired coupons), you can use the "free Puffs with Vick's purchase" from the 12/27 P&G insert. That coupon has no limit and I was able to use it for a big three-pack at Jewel awhile back.

CVS has a $1.25 moneymaker on Dove Men Care body and face wash: pay $5.49, use the coupon on the back of Sunday's RedPlum to take $1.25 off and bring your price down to $4.24, and get $5.49 ExtraBucks. Limit 1. For the rest of the CVS deals, see The Krazy Koupon Lady.

Parade has a coupon for $1/1 Keebler Club Crackers 9 oz or larger.

SmartSource has a coupon for a free 3.5-6 lb. bag of Purina Pro Plan dog or cat food (up to $13.99!), and another for a 6 oz. pouch, redeemable only at PetSmart. Another for $10 off flowers at an FTD florist, or online at ftd.com/romance with the code 20200. No spending minimum, and on the site everything is marked already with the discount. The cheapest items after discount are boutonnieres for $6.99, but it doesn't inlcude service fee and I can't see how much that would be but I bet it's not small. Would be interesting to bring the coupon to a local florist and see if you could get a little something free, though. I also can't find a listing of FTD florists, though. Hmph. In another Valentine's deal, you can get a pound of assorted chocolates free at Fannie May if you spend $30. And not so Valentiney: there's another one of those coupons for a free roll of Marcal toilet paper, and now that I know my local Centrella store Pan's Foods has 'em, that's some free wipin' right there! Which is extra awesome because guess what? Pebbles is now potty trained and that's just more tp we'll be using around here. Less diapers though, so that's a win. There's $1/1 a six-pack of Snapple, and I think those are coming up with the ConAgra/Dr Pepper Catalina deal at Jewel-Osco. And $1/1 for Edy's ice cream. And 75 cents off Reynold's Wrap, which will get you some very cheap next time it goes on sale for $1 or less at Walgreen's.

RedPlum has a bunch of Unilever coupons (Ragu, Skippy, Dove, Suave, Wish-Bone ($1/1 Spritzers is pretty good). There's also $1/1 ThermaCare heat wraps which would be nice if CVS or Wag's offers them again for free after Extra Bucks or Register Rewards. There's a rebate for liquors (Smirnoff, Cpn Morgan, Tanqueray, and Guiness Draft.

World Market this week is featuring something I just love: a stoneware rectangular baking pan meant to replace the tinfoil variety, and a zip-up insulated carrier that fits it. So you can take your hotdish to the big game this week! At $9.99 each they're so much more frugal than ordering takeout or, don't you think? Also, they have Blackstone Pinot Noir at $6.97, usually $10.99.

Menards has a below-the-bed shoe organizer free after $8 rebate, and a 4-quart bag of potting mix or a greenhouse starter kit for 99 cents after $1 mail-in rebate. Menards also has Kettle chips for $3.49, and there's a $1/1 coupon in SmartSource. Does Menards take MQs? Why not, I guess?

OfficeMax offers $30 in MaxPerks rewards if you buy a 10-ream case of paper for $39.99. It's not free like they have offered in the past but still not bad. They'll also give you a free 8-pack of Duracell AA batteries if you spend $50 on HP ink. (Which isn't nearly enough to take the sting off spending all that money on ink, but, you know. Gotta print those coupons.)

Jo-Ann fabric and craft stores has the usual coupon for 40% off any regular-priced item.

Carson Pirie Scott has some coupons for an extra 10% to 20% off sale-priced apparel and jewelry items.

Best Buy of course has a bunch of big-screen TVs on sale.

There is a coupon for 1.50 off a Huggies Jumbo pack or larger on the Target website. I didn't print it, so I don't know if it is a Target coupon or a manufacturer's coupon, but I think they are usually Target coupons.

Three finds from my Jewel run late last night: lots of healthy choice & smart ones frozen meals on clearance for $1.15-$1.25, which make for cheap lunches with the various Qs out there. I haven't read the paper today, but lately the Treasure Island ads have been including a $3 off any 5 Quaker products mfr Q, which lines up nicely with the must buy 5 Quaker deal that is running. It's so similar to the Jewel promotion that I wasn't sure that it would stack, but it did. Now I wish I had cut out more of those! Also, wheatables are included in the Keebler cracker sale, and I had the $1.50 off coupons.com printable in my files (can't find it on their site now :/).
