  • Top Five Best Deals This Week: 7/1/2013

    Best Deals of the Week
    I’ve compiled best deals available at the drugstores, Target, Ralphs/Kroger, and other stores. I stick to deals that don’t require too many or any obscure coupons, and I try to pick practical items that most people buy at some point.

    Use this list to decide which stores to hit this week, based on what you need. You might even use it to decide you can skip shopping for a week, because you don’t need what’s on sale.

    Sorry to get this week’s post up so late … I had trouble finding deals that are truly outstanding. So I may add to the list as we get more new coupons (we should since it’s the beginning of the month!), but for now, I offer only five deals.

    1. Cheap Simply Lemonade at Walgreens

    BUY: 1 Simply Lemonade @ $1.99
    USE: $0.75/1 Simply Lemonade or Simply Limeade
    Stack with: $0.50/1 Simply Orange or Lemonade July Walgreens IVC Coupon Booklet {found with weekly ads in-store}
    Pay: $0.74

    I don’t ever remember seeing the big bottles of Simply for less than $1, so this is a phenomenal deal! (And if you don’t have a Walgreens, you can get bottles for $1.25 at Target this week.)

    Ends 7/6.

    2. Possible Moneymaker on Bayer Aspirin at Rite Aid

    Prices for this deal might vary, but you should be able to get some aspirin for free or a slight moneymaker:

    BUY: 2 Bayer Aspirin @ $3.29 each & B1G1 50% off
    USE: $2/1 Bayer Aspirin Product from 6/23 Red Plum
    Pay: $0.94
    Receive: $2 +UP Reward
    Final Price: $1.06 moneymaker

    The limit on this deal is 2, so if you have 4 coupons, you can do this deal twice.

    Ends 7/6.

    3. Free Raspberries at Ralphs {and possibly all Kroger stores}

    Starting Wednesday (7/3), Driscoll’s raspberries will be on sale for $0.99 at Ralphs. I’ve seen reports that you can get a $1/1 Driscoll’s product coupon if you sign up for Driscoll’s Rewards Program. If so, you can get raspberries for FREE after coupon!

    Ends 7/9.

    4. Free Orville Redenbacher’s Pop Crunch for Ralphs/Kroger Shoppers

    On Friday (7/5), Ralphs/Kroger shoppers can load a digital coupon for one free Orville Redenbacher’s Pop Crunch.

    7/5 only.

    5. Free Produce at Target

    If you receive Target’s mobile coupons, there is a mobile coupon for $1 off fresh produce. (If you don’t have it, text JULY4 or FRESH to 827438). I also received a $1 off produce coupon via snail mail in a Target mailer. Use the coupon to get free corn (on sale for 5/$1), or free bananas ($0.25 each). There may be other great deals as well (I seem to recall my store carrying avocados for around $1), so keep an eye out!

    Ends 7/6 for corn {price for bananas is regular price at my store}.
