Deals for lunches and baby at Target
Apples, Spaghettios, Huggies: Target stores with produce areas have three-pound bags of Honeycrisp apples on sale for $4.99, which is only $1.33 per pound, about half off this variety’s typical price. Campbell’s Spaghettios (15-ounce can) is on sale for 75 cents. Use the coupon for 40 cents off three from the Sept. 9 circular to pay 62 cents per can. Huggies jumbo pack diapers are on sale for $9.49 each. When you buy three, you will get a $5 Target Gift Card. Use three of the $1.50 Huggies coupons from the Sept. 16 circular to pay $7.99 each at the register. After the $5 gift card, your net cost will be $6.32 per package.
Personal care at Publix
Chapstick, John Freida, Tresemme: Look for the “Beautiful Fall Savings” Publix store coupon circular in last Sunday’s newspaper and also in store racks to get store coupons that you can combine with manufacturers coupons. For example, you’ll find a Publix coupon for $1 off two Chapstick items in the booklet, and you can combine that with the $1 off two Chapstick items from the Oct. 7 RedPlum circular to save $1 each. Combine the coupon for $2 off any John Frieda hair care product in the Publix booklet with the coupon for $1 off any John Frieda hair care product in the Oct. 7 SmartSource circular to save $3 on each item. Also find a Publix coupon for $3 off a $10 purchase of participating Unilever products in the booklet. Combine that with Unilever coupons from the Sept. 30 RedPlum circular to get real bargains. For example, you can buy one Tresemme shampoo (24.5 ounce) and one Tresemme conditioner (24.5 ounce) on sale for $3.49 each. Use the Sept. 30 RedPlum coupon that will give you a free Tresemme styler when you buy those two items, which will bring you over the $10 spending goal, and get $3 off. Your cost at the register will be only $4 for three large hair care items.
Membership savings at BJ’s
Free membership: If you’ve never compared prices for your common items at a warehouse club before, you can use the coupon in the Oct. 7 RedPlum circular to get a free 60-day membership to BJ’s Wholesale Club. It is also the only wholesale club that accepts manufacturers grocery coupons from the newspaper. Package sizes for your items will probably vary between your supermarket and the wholesale club, so be sure to bring a calculator and compare actual unit costs, such as the price per ounce or pound.
