Food Lion Deal: Breyer’s Ice Cream 4/$2.96

Update:  FREE Breyers.  See below!

I stopped by Food Lion today for some milk and was so excited about this deal. 

Save $5 instantly when you spend $20 on participating Unilever products.  The Breyers ice creams are regularly over $6 each but they are on sale for $1.99.  Buy four of them and get an instant $5 off your purchase.  There is a limit of four Breyers ice creams per visit. 

4 Breyers ice cream at $1.99 each = $7.96
-$5 instant savings = $2.96 for four or $.74 each

I was surprised that this deal worked since the ice cream is on sale.  Hopefully it will for you too.  Good luck and let me know how it goes.

Update:  Like Breyers on facebook and you can get printable coupons to save $1.50/2.  Be sure to hit the back button so that you can print two coupons.

Wordy Wednesday: A Note for Food Lion

Dear Food Lion,

I miss your old signs. 

The old Food Lion sale tags.

Your old sale signs were simple and to the point. On this tag I can clearly see that the price is $.99. If I need a little help figuring out my savings, then it tells me in small print at the bottom.

The new Food Lion sale tags.

These new signs you’re displaying are too busy. When walking down the aisles I should be able to read the signs quickly without completely stopping. Even though I am a quick reader, I find myself stopping, scanning all around the shelves, and trying to figure out the best deal amongst all of the other assiduous tags.

I am a loyal shopper and have been for many years, even from your early beginning years as Food Town.  I hope that in the future the changes made to your store will be more user-friendly and convenient for shoppers.

Stockpile Opportunity: Sweet Potatoes

It’s time to stockpile sweet potatoes.  I’ve been waiting for a big sale and Walmart has them for only $.28/lb. 

Each year, I make a sweet potato casserole for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  This reminds me . . . I need to share that recipe with you soon.  Today I purchased about 10 lb of sweet potatoes from Walmart.  Food Lion also has them on sale for $.33-.49/lb, depending on your area.

In case you’re wondering, sweet potatoes are usually on sale again for Christmas.

Food Lion Deals 10/3/10

Tonight I had to run out to return a Redbox dvd and decided to go into Food Lion for a few minutes. I wanted to see if they had restocked the Kraft cheese since I had another $5 coupon to use before Tuesday.

I ended up with 5 Kraft cheese, 13 boxes Ronzoni pasta, and 2 boxes of Uncle Ben’s rice for only $4.68.  Here’s how I saved $27.84:

5 Kraft cheese, buy 1 get 1 free
used $5 printable coupon

10 Ronzoni pasta (blue box), buy 1 get 1 free
-used five $1 off 2 (from in-store blinkie machine)

3 Ronzoni garden pasta, sale $1/box
-used three $.50 box peelies

2 Uncle Ben’s rice, sale $1.19/box
-used two $1  (from in-store blinkie machines)

I was pleased with the deals from a random store trip.  We don’t eat much pasta in our house, so I will use some of the spaghetti noodles for the food drive and I will save the rotini noodles for pasta salad.

Have you found any great deals lately?

Today’s Food Lion Deals 10/2/10

I wrote to you earlier this week about a fabulous $5 Kraft coupon.  I took my $5 Kraft coupon to Food Lion today.  The shredded cheese was on sale buy 1 get 1 free which made them $1.39 each.  The cream cheese was buy 1 get 1 free which made it $1 each.  I ended up with 4 bags of cheese and 1 cream cheese.  After my $5 off 5 Kraft items coupon, my pre-tax total was $1.56.  I have another $5 Kraft coupon but will save it to use in a few days after they have restocked the shelves.  Sorry for the bad picture, but I was unloading groceries, cooking dinner, and trying to let you know about this deal.  Too much multi-tasking.

I have also heard that Harris Teeter has the Kraft cheese bogo this week.  I chose to purchase my cheese at Food Lion though because Harris Teeter prices are usually higher.

What deals have you found lately?

Stockpile Opportunity: Bumble Bee Tuna

Food Lion has Bumble Bee cans of tuna 2/$1.00.  It’s a good time to stockpile tuna for the pantry while it’s almost half price. 

I went to Food Lion tonight and purchased 12 cans.  When I was leaving the store, I found a coupon on the sidewalk.  The coupon was for $1.50 off a purchase of chicken, beef, or tuna.  I went back in the store and got three more cans for free.  🙂  I can’t imagine why someone would throw away coupons like that.  Oh well. 

Also, there are three Bumble Bee coupons in today’s Sunday paper.  One of the coupons is good for $1 off two Bumble Bee pouches.  The pouches are only $.65 at Walmart for the 2.5 oz.  After the coupon, the pouches are $.15 each.  That’s a great deal!

FREE Kraft Salad Dressing at Food Lion

Last week the Kraft vendor left some $.55 coupons for salad dressing. I picked up a few because I knew this week they were having a Kraft sale.

Buy 5 Kraft dressings and get $5.00 off your purchase PLUS get a $3 Catalina.

*A Catalina is a coupon that can be used on your next in-store purchase. They’re kind of like Extra Care Bucks.

The Kraft dressings are on sale 3/$5 or $1.67 each.
I used five $.55 coupons from the vendor.
$1.67 x 5 = $8.35 – $2.75 in coupons = $5.60
Receive a $5 instant credit on your order.
This makes the purchase amount only $.60 PLUS you get back a $3 Catalina.
Out of Pocket: -$2.40

You can also use the $.55 coupon from 5/2/10 Smart Source.

Even if you don’t have the $2.75 in coupons this deal is still almost free, after the $3 Catalina.

I’m not sure when this sale ends (maybe Tuesday), so hurry!

Thanks to Tina for reminding me about the Kraft sale!
