Just called the Hobby Lobby on North Academy and Christmas merchandise is marked down to 66% off. It’s getting closer to being a good deal…

- Found a tearpad at King Soopers with rebate forms for Palmolive Pure+Clear dish soap – free after rebate, up to $2.99. Just bought some of this not that long ago, I’ll have to see if I still have the receipt hanging around so I don’t have to buy it again! ;)
- Another tearpad at King Soopers with coupons for $1 off two Glad products
Please be nice and leave a few for the rest of the bargain hunters – I left some for you! :)
Here’s some deals I see at King Sooper’s this week. I’m only mentioning what is, for me, a rock-bottom (or close to it) price. Let me know if I missed something!
Whole Gold Pineapple $1 each – best price you’ll pay anywhere, hands down. That’s $1 EACH, not per pound. Get there today or tomorrow for the biggest pineapples: I’ve found they usually stock small ones for this sale but if you get there early you can typically snag some of the larger ones. And, they’ll almost positively run out of stock by Monday or Tuesday so don’t forget to stop in and get a raincheck to use at a later date.
Organic Green Pears $1.50/lb – great price for organic pears.
Organic Cameo, Granny Smith, Red Delicious, and Golden Delicious Apples $1.50/lb – I’ve seen organic Red Delicious and Golden Delicious apples for $.99/lb, but I think this is a pretty decent price for organic Cameo and Granny Smith apples.
Avocados $1 – like I’ve said before, best price unless you want to try your luck at WalMart’s produce or stop at an ethnic market.
Broccoli $1 – rock bottom price for me.
Colorado Proud Gallon Milk $2.49/gallon – this is their everyday price, so no huge sale here, but I’m pretty sure it’s the cheapest in town, unless you find a great markdown.
Quaker Cereal $2 – use $1 off 2 Quaker Life cereal coupons to get these for $1.50. This is not a rock bottom price for me, but decent if you need cereal.
Aleve 24ct $1.99 – use $1 off 1 coupons to get these for $.99
Proctor and Gamble Super Saver Event: Buy $25 worth of participating P&G products, save $5 instantly (on the other items in your purchase). This could maybe be a decent deal, but I’m not seeing any prices that are even decent when combined with coupons and the net effect of 20% off ($5 off $25 is effectively 20%).
Kim commented on this post to let me know that the Target off Powers and Prominent Point (Briargate/Cordera area) marked Christmas merchandise down to 75% this morning. Thanks, Kim!
Starting January 12, the Pikes Peak Library District is doing a winter reading club of sorts: read eight books in eight weeks and get a free book bag, chocolate, Panera coupon, and a collectible PPLD coffee mug. More info here. Not sure I’ll get eight books read in eight weeks but can I enter my kids and read eight Curious George books and then swipe share their Panera coupons?
Was in Target this morning and Christmas was still only 50% off but they had LOTS left. I’m guessing there will be a good selection by the time it gets to 90% off. The Dollar Spot is 50% off, too, and you can get Rayovac alkaline batteries for free using $1 of 2 coupons that were in the newspaper inserts awhile back. You may even make a profit of $.50 if you have $1 off 1 coupons left. The coupon is only valid on Rayovac alkaline batteries, and the Dollar Spot has both alkaline and “heavy duty” so just be sure what you’re buying if you’re using a coupon. I got some of the heavy duty 9V for $.50 for 2, so even without a coupon it’s a great price if you need to replace your stockpile of smoke detector batteries. :)
Oh, and some toys were 30% off today.
I think Chick Fil A gives away more free food than any other restaurant – this time, you can make any purchase on January 1st, 2009 from 10:30 AM to 6:00 PM and receive a coupon for a free chicken biscuit on your next visit. More info here.
Here’s a list of the Chick Fil A’s in the Colorado Springs area:
Safeway’s sales cycles are all off because of the holidays – they put out a new ad today that runs through Saturday, January 3rd. Do they have any idea how much this throws off someone whose weeks run with the *normal* Wednesday through Tuesday grocery ads?! Here’s some good deals:
80% Lean Ground Beef $1.59/lb – I told you King Soopers had it on sale for a decent price, but that the quality of the meat could be questionable, at least according to our mothers. ;) And this week Safeway has their freshly ground beef for even cheaper than King Soopers so I’m stocking up. This is pretty much the lowest price you’ll see outside of a fabulous 4th of July sale or major markdown. 90% Lean Ground Beef is $1.99/lb, btw.
Martinelli’s Sparkling Cider $1.79 each – I’m thinking this is around $2.50 everywhere else, so a good price for your New Year’s celebrations.
Navel Oranges $.77/lb – Could go lower, but not significantly.
Jumbo Yellow Onions $.88/lb – Rock-bottom price for me.
Limes 5/$1 – Great price for a regular grocery store, depending on their size and quality you might be better of getting them at a Mexican market but unless that’s part of your weekly routine…
Avocadoes $1 – same price as King Soopers, and same theory as the limes
