Cinco de Mayo is this week on 5/5/16. So a lot of sales ads should have more Mexican food sales. Watch out for stock up prices on those items this week.
Note this week I added a lot more links on where to look to find deals. Just like I advise not to shop at the same store every week, I also do not suggest you use the same coupon website to find deals for every store. Some of the websites may not have finished their weekly deals yet. Usually we will see Super Center Deals being posted late Saturday or Sunday for most coupon websites. The exception would be for stores that have start and end sales date mid-week like Kroger and Publix. I put the resources to find deals in the order I would look for weekly deals. I based the order on how quick they post weekly deals and how good the coupon deals were for prior weeks.
This is designed to train new couponers how to find the best weekly coupon deals. I am also teaching shoppers how to Extreme Coupon again! You can join our Face Book Group “How to Extreme Coupon” here
to talk to other couponers, ask questions, find deals, stay up to date on new coupon info, and get more coupon and savings tips from me. If you are new to couponing and need more How to Coupon Info go here to find all of the Extreme Coupon lessons.
— Walmart week of 5/1/16 —
Regular prices may vary per region. A lot are higher in my region in Michigan. If your area has higher prices you might like the deals involving roll backs better than normal price deals.
Highlights- More Freebies than last week. And now I will look for the free + money maker on Refried Beans here and am scratching the other deal off of my Walgreens shopping list. Great for Mexican Pizzas and Mexican Dips.
Find True Couponing’s weekly deals and updates here.
Note: I did not see any new deals yet.
Hip 2 Save’s Walmart Coupon deals often has mostly non coupon deals. This could be a good place to look for a gift ideas.
Note: Usually Coupon websites may be busy looking for coupon deals for tons of stores in the beginning of the week so check here mid-week or end of the week.
— Target week of 5/1/16–
My #1 place to look for Target Deals is here in Hip 2 Save’s Target Deals area. Find Weekly Target Coupon matchups and updates here. She highlights the best deals in red in her master list.
Highlights: FREE GAME PLAN for 3 Pantene Hair Spray, Revlon Mascara & Right Guard Deodorant! Purina Cat Chow Complete food $4.99 each wyb two 16 lb. bags. Some Mexican Food deals in the grocery section.
Other resources try to find Target Deals that might not be mentioned on Hip 2 Save:
– Find FTM’s Target Deals here.
Highlights: Muir Organic Tomato Paste $0.28
– Start watching for Bargains to Bounty’s Weekly Target Deals and updates here.
Note: New deals were not ready when I got this list ready. It should be ready today or tomorrow.
Target shopping tips
➡Bring Your Own bag and get a $0.05 bring your own bag discount. Remind cashier for the discount. Separate your transactions to use up coupons and combine bring your own bag discount. I would get in other check out lanes for this $0.05 off requests if you have time.
➡Check your Shopkick app to see if you have enough kicks (points) for a free Target digital gift card. Then use that to pay for almost free or cover the tax costs on coupon deals. You do not have to spend the whole amount on the gift card. So you can slowly use it for the best deals.
➡Get 5% off your total by paying with a Target Red Credit OR Debit Card. Ask cashier if you do not have one.
➡Before you shop and/or later in the week check here for H2S’s Target updates.
➡Late on Saturday start watching for H2S’s new Target deals that start on Sunday at the link above, too.
3 Resources to find Dollar Tree deals week of 5/1/16 – 27 possible freebies!
YMMV – brands and sizes may vary per region, I will look at these deals and not clip out the coupons and bring certain whole inserts to the store and only cut out if I find the correct item in my store. Often deals are based on normal prices so they often last more than one week.
Watch for Krazy Coupon Lady’s Dollar Tree’s Weekly and updated deals here.
Highlights: 12 Freebies – Some of the freebies are ones not listed in the two coupon websites listed below.
Some of the non-free deals are also different than the deals in the two coupon websites below.
Look out for Living Rich with Coupon’s Dollar Tree Weekly Deals and Updates here.
Highlights: 18 Freebies – Same exact freebies as the couponingcouple.com’s deals below.
More options for coupons than thekrazycouponlady.com (above)
Watch out for the Couponingcouple.com to post there Dollar Tree Weekly and updated deals here.
Highlights: 18 Freebies – But they are all the same freebies in livingrichwithcoupons’s list.
More options for coupons than thekrazycouponlady.com (above)
Summary- There are a possible total of 27 freebies at Dollar Tree this week. YMMV. So I am counting 18 from LRWC and CC websites + 9 other freebies KCL found. Note that some of the deals may involve the same mfr. coupon but watching the 2 websites gives you more options on what to look for at your store. Example would be the $1/1 Airborn product coupon from SS 4/30. LRWC mentions to buy Airborn Kids Vitamins and KCL lists two other Airborn products you can get. Since products are regional in the store it is good to watch out for other options.
Meijers week of 5/1/16
B2B’s Meijer Deal Category here:
➡Look for the Regular weekly deals
➡Watch for updates later in the week and/or before you shop. Meijer often has weekend sales.
1 FREE Lime now through Wed. with Checkout 51
Neutrogena Facial Cleaning Bars $0.09
2 Money Makers in the Price Drops Section
Lots of other stock up prices (See green final prices)
My husband brought home Corn Beef Brisket from Krogers Sat. that he bought for a little over $6. Savings were over $7. That is over 50% off. It was not a manager’s special (clearance) price either! I am going to divide it and freeze it to have two cheap meals later. Or you could cook the whole things and use extras for corn beef grilled sandwiches the next night. I assume the deal should end Tues. So I am planning on looking for 1 more to buy so I will have 4 future cheap corn beef meals. if you are going to stock up look through the coupon books Krogers sends to your house for threshold coupons for the meat or seafood department. They coupons vary per person. I found one for $3/$15 purchase for meat/seafood dept. that would bring the cost down to $2.50 / meal (for the meat cost) if you bought 3 and divided them up for 6 meals with the threshold coupon.
