Can you believe we’re almost into March?! Well, anyway…
First off, Safeway has a great coupon in their ad for $10 off your grocery purchase of $50 or more. Your $50 needs to come after all sale discounts AND store coupons, but before manufacturer’s coupons. [Edit: Just noticed this coupon is only valid Wednesday through Saturday!]
The $10 off $50 coupon could be a great deal if you’re planning on doing the “Chill Out at Home” promotion:
Spend $25 on participating frozen food items and get a $10 reward coupon to use on your next order. Participating items listed in the ad include the following:
â€¢ Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream $2.99
â€¢ Eggo Frozen Breakfast $1.77
â€¢ Eating Right Meals or Pizza $2
I’m sure there are a lot more participating items marked in store. None of the above items are looking like stock-up prices to me unless we get some coupons on Sunday.
In-ad Coupons – require $10 minimum purchase
â€¢ FREE 2 liter Pepsi (selected varieties) – Pop rarely goes on sale for less than a dollar, so getting it free is amazing!
â€¢ Lucerne Butter 99 ¢ – This is my stock up price. Too bad you can only buy one with the coupon.
â€¢ Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats or Raisin Bran 99 ¢ – Use 70 ¢/1 coupon to get some FREE cereal. That’s a “duh” stock up price. :) Can still only buy one unless you do multiple transactions, though.
Meat, Dairy, and Frozen:
â€¢ Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts or Thighs $1.79/lb – Close to the lowest it will get, so stock up! (Cheapest I’ve ever seen is $1.66/lb)
â€¢ Rancher’s Reserve Boneless Beef London Broil $1.99/lb – Pretty typical sale price.
â€¢ Fresh Atlantic Salmon Fillets $4.99/lb – Probably not quite the lowest price you’ll see this month because of Lent, but a good price nonethless. [Edit: It’s actually $3.99/lb at Albertson’s this week, which is probably the lowest price we’ll see.]
â€¢ Green Asparagus 98 ¢/lb – Great price for fresh produce
â€¢ Broccoli Crowns $1/lb – Target price for broccoli
â€¢ Fuji Apples $1/lb – Target price for apples (other than the Delicious varieties)
â€¢ Sakota Farms 3 lb Bag Yellow Onions $1 each – That’s 33 ¢ a pound, so a stock up price for me.
General Grocery and Household:
Nabisco Snak-Saks $1.00 – If you happen to have any $1/2 coupons, these would be 50 ¢. We haven’t gotten in recent coupon inserts, though.
And finally, a 48 Hour Sale on Saturday and Sunday only:
â€¢ Crisp Iceberg Lettuce 49 ¢
â€¢ Campbell’s Select Harvest Soup 88 ¢ – Buy four and use $1/4 store coupon from the Heart Healthy booklet combined with two 50 ¢/2 coupons doubled, and these would be 13 ¢ each. (The store coupon expires 2/28.)â€¢ 1 Dozen Large Eggs 87 ¢ – Limit two, but unless you’ve gotten some great markdowns on eggs like I did recently, I’d do several transactions and get a few dozen.
As always, I’ve only listed the things that are either “buy” or “stock-up” prices for my personal plan and budget, and I’ve written the matchups assuming that you shop at a store that doubles coupons. I’ll be explaining my methodology in-depth at the workshop on March 7th, placing a special emphasis on really understanding how strategic shopping can help you reduce your grocery budget – just knowing how to get free stuff or how double coupons work doesn’t mean you’re really saving money! I’d love to have you sign up if you haven’t already!
Feel free to post any deals you’ve found at Safeway this week in the comments – if it’s a super-duper deal that hasn’t been covered already, I’ll write a new post sharing what you found!
