Notable Safeway Deals

I have no time to post but wanted to let you all know that there is a spend $75 receive $10 catalina coupon at Safeway available on Friday (yesterday) and Saturday (Today!).  According to Safeway Facebook page, "per #12 of our coupon policy: minimum purchase requirements are calculated AFTER club card savings, and BEFORE manufacturer’s coupons."  Though my total was $82 something after club card savings and $57 something after coupons and it didn't print.  So I just called catalina.

Second, hidden behind the deal flap on the first page is the glorious $5/$15 frozen food coupon.  I ended up paying $3.49 last night for $15.49 worth of frozen food.  WooHoo!  I don't know how I missed that coupon for 2 days but at least I saw finally saw it.

Third, 75% off select books near the Easter items at the mall enterance to the North Pole Safeway.  Basically cookbooks and children's books.  Most were a final price of $1.75.  They were good, educational, hard cover books to boot.  If I get a chance I will post my grocery picture tonight.  This deal runs through the 29th.

Hope everyone is having a fantastic Saturday!  And just want to add that I am a huge fan of the North Pole Safeway cashiers!

Amazon Charmin Ultra Deal

I paid $7.99 last week for a 12 double roll of toilet paper at Fred Meyers so I'm using that as a base for is this a good deal.  Every now and then I'm able to get it a little cheaper but then again it is more often an annoyance of having to pay full price because we are completely out.  So this deal equals 96 double rolls and would cost about $64 if I bought it at Freds with that particular $7.99 coupon.  Plus the mega rolls take up less storage.

Charmin Ultra Soft, Mega Rolls, 12-Count (Pack of 4) for $43.99

Amazon Haribo Candy Deals

I'm just sitting here watching a movie on Netflix while amazon browsing and I thought I would post some of the things that interest me.  If you are new to amazon grocery shopping keep in mind that clicking on Subscribe and Save will give you an extra 15% discount on the item and free shipping.  In the spirit Easter baskets I think I'll start with candy...

Haribo Candy!  I can't believe I found the Haribo Gummi Candy, Fizzy Cola, 5-Ounce Bags (Pack of 12) for $9.83 (S&S and code HARIBOII another 10% discount at checkout)  I LOVE these gummy soda bottles.  They are the ones that are coated in sugar.  I haven't been able to find these since high school when I would buy them at the mall.  Oh and I've looked!

Newsminer Newspaper's Deceptive Deal

I tried to give them the benefit of the doubt.  But after talking to a total of 3 people at the Newsminer I have come to my personal opinion that they false advertised how good their newspaper deal was that I promoted a couple weeks ago.  It makes me mad for two reasons.  I promoted it and I was super excited about this amazing deal.  It was still a good deal but I feel duped.  This is issue...

$40 for 26-week, 7-day Fairbanks Daily News-Miner subscription, plus e-edition - a $156 value
Details of the Deal
Voucher expires March 31, 2011
New subscribers only (may not have been a subscriber for at least 30 days)
One coupon redemption per customer
Not valid for cash back
Not valid with any other offer
Cannot use until day after online offer ends
Valid only in Fairbanks home-delivery areas.

Here is my argument.  If you call to buy a 26 week, 7 day subscription plus e-edition it costs $120.00.  Now the representative from the paper (the 3rd person I spoke to) told me the $156.00 is if you went to the store and purchase them.  He said that was stated in the advertisement.  It doesn't say that anywhere.  In fact it states SUBSCRIPTION.  Stating a subscription's value is $156 when it is $120 is false advertising.  And they don't feel anything is wrong with the ad.  I just want to inform my readers that the cost of a 26 week, 7 day newspaper subscription is $94.00.  I'm not interested in the e-edition when I have a physical paper.  So the personal value I give this deal is that I snagged a $94.00 subscription for $40.00.  Though I'm afraid this whole thing has put a bad taste in my mouth for these deals.  As you can imagine after talking to three people I was fed way more false information than I shared in this post.  It would have been much easier for them if I didn't know how to add. 

***Just want to note that I was completely calm and professional during the conversation.  My only request was that I wanted to voice my concern and to get clarification.

Newsminer Newspaper Deal

For Today (4/1) and Tomorrow (4/2) only the newsminer is running a sale under their new Hot Deals Alert program.  This is the first thing I have bought on this program.  I think it is about 3 weeks old.  So far I've been fairly impressed with what they have been offering.  If we had some extra cash laying around I probably would have bought a couple deals by now.  But this newspaper deal I just couldn't pass up...

Newsminer Newspaper is offering you a 26 Week, 7 Day subscription including the E-Edition for $40 (Org $156)!  I called today to make sure my North Pole address was included in their opinion of the Fairbanks home delivery area.  If you have questions call 456-6661.  To get this great deal go HERE
