Thinking about vacation next year? My family went to Colorado a few years ago and had a blast. There’s so much to do there! If you’d like to go for free, head on over here to sign up to win a free ski trip! One lucky winner and their guest will enjoy a 3-night stay in Keystone, plus (2) adult 2-day lift tickets and equipment rentals.
Here’s a few more Meijer deals:

It’s so nice to have my DH home this week (his company is on holiday shut-down). I was able to shop without any toddler tantrums! Here’s what I bought, and what I found….
2 Disney Cars Vitamins, BOGO at $5.79. Used $1/1 from Target and stacked with $1/1 Meijer coupon found in the new Vitamin booklet (see below). Final price just $1.89/box!
10 Fast Shake Pancake Mixes, $8.90. Used five $2/2 printables from here. Coupons adjusted down. Free!
1 2-ltr Sierra Mist, $1.59. Used FREE catalina coupon found at the store!
4 jars Chi-Chi’s salsa, $3.96. Used four .50/1 from the 12/12 SS.
2 Heluva Good Dips, $2.38. Used two $1/1 printable from here .
1 Bag Tyson Fun Shaped Nuggets, $3.99. Used $1/1 from the 11/7 SS.
20 cans Healthy Choice Soup, $20. Used four $1/5 Meijer Mealbox and ten $1/2 from the 10/17 SS.
1 Loaf Cole’s Garlic Bread, $1.50. (my kids love it).
4 lbs. Meijer Ground Turkey, $5.
1 Gallon Milk, $2.49
Meijer Hamburger Buns, $1.29.
I used the self-checkout and needed assistance with the coupons. For some reason the Meijer machines require approval for their own store coupons! The cashier who helped me was having trouble with the Fast Shake coupons and somehow he ended up giving me a little more off than he should of. My final bill after coupons was $20.00 even and I paid with a $5 store coupon and $15 on my TJX card. Total savings: $69.95 🙂
A few notes. First, you’d think I wouldn’t need to buy any soup for quite some time after the Con Agra deal over at Jewel, where is ended up being better than free. But the two varieties I bought, Split Pea and Ham and Chicken and Rice, are both gluten-free! I’ve been having them often for lunch and really enjoying them, so I know these will go to good use! Now here’s what I found at the pharmacy:
There are $100 worth of coupons in the booklet, and all Meijer store coupons that can be combined with manufacturer’s coupons for even greater savings! There are coupons in the book that go well with this week’s BOGO Identical Item Free Vitamin sale, so pick one up next time you’re at Meijer 🙂
Purex released a NEW laundry product today, 12/28/2010, and it is now officially on sale at Walmart. Purex Complete Crystals Softener is different from other fabric softeners because it is not oil-based. What does that mean? It means this product doesn’t leave an oily residue on clothes, and towels, which can build up over time. Now your towels are free to absorb moisture without the oil residue getting in the way! And it’s the first major fabric softener that is 100% safe to use on children’s sleepwear, as it doesn’t impair flame retardance (like oil-based softeners can!).
Purex sent me a sample of the crystals, which I tried recently. While the scent was super strong from the bottle, the clothes coming out of the dryer smelled pleasant and were super soft! I’m not a regular user of fabric softener, but I would happily use this one again.
The giveaway: One Shopper’s Apprentice reader will win a coupon for FREE 28 oz. bottle of Purex Complete Crystals Softener! The coupon has a value of $5.50 and doesn’t expire until 12/31/2011. To enter, leave a comment here and tell us if you use a fabric softener. You can get one extra entry by “liking” us on facebook here (or commenting that you do) and another extra entry by subscribing to our daily email (see box on the right). Just come back and leave a separate comment for each extra entry you earn. Winner will be selected on 1/2/2011 using a random number generator and will have two days to respond and claim the prize.
Update: Here are the participating products: TGI Friday’s 30-40 ct, on sale for $7.99, Bagel Bites 40 ct, on sale for $7.99, Delimex 60 ct, on sale for $9.99, and Nancy’s 32 ct, also on sale for $7.99. Prices are good through 1/5/2011.
While I was in Dominick’s yesterday, I found this sign posted on a freezer door. Purchase any two participating frozen party snacks or appetizers and one 24-pk of Coca-Cola and get $7 instant savings, through 1/5/2011. Some of the TGI Friday’s snacks were priced 2/$7, so not a great deal but decent if you need these products anyway! There’s a $1/1 coupon on Bagel Bits in the 6/13 SS (expires 12/31/2010) you could use to make the deal even better!
There is a Prilosec rebate available here. In order to receive your $25 rebate, you must purchase two 42-count packages of Prilosec between 12/26/2010 and 2/15/2011.
Here’s a way to get two boxes for a net cost of $10. Head over to Amazon, where the 42-count is priced at $22.49. If you use subscribe and save (you can cancel after you place your order), your price drops to $19.12. Then there is a $3 coupon at the bottom of the page (just scroll down) which brings your price to $35.24. Submit for the $25 rebate, and you’re down to $10.24 for two boxes, or just $5.12 each! Shipping is free 🙂
