This morning I was hunting for deals online and you know what? They seemed a bit sparse. So I decided to pay a trip to my local Fred Meyer to see if I could dig up something worthwhile to report about! I did find quite a few deals, so get ready!
Unadvertised Grocery Deals
Here are the deals I found in the grocery and health/beauty section. Prices at your local Fred Meyer store may vary. “Good thru” dates have been listed for each deal.
Litehouse Dressings $2.50 (5/25)
$1/2 printable coupon
Bottom line: $2 each
So Delicious Shelf-Stable Coconut Milk $2.19 (5/25)
$1/1 So Delicious coupon from 5/5 SmartSource
Bottom line: $1.19
Biokleen products – found in Natural Foods section
Save 25% off (through 5/25); prices start at $3.22
$1/1 printable coupon
Bottom line: as low as $2.22
Wet ‘n Wild Nail Polish $0.99 (everyday price)
$1/1 coupon from 5/19 Red Plum (coupon expires 6/1)
Bottom line: FREE
(Note: Fred Meyer does not allow for overage, but my cashier was able to adjust the coupon down to zero it out. It was not a hassle.)
Thanks to Thrifty NW Mom for the heads up on this deal!!
Here’s another idea for the Wet ‘n Wild coupon…use it on their in-progress buy one, get one 1/2 price sale. Here’s one scenario I noted:
I was really excited to find this deal! Select Huggies products will trigger a $5 off your-next-order coupon when you buy 2.
Above, I found the 400-ct wipes at $9.49.
Buy (2) & use the $0.50/1 coupon from the 5/12 SmartSource (Tacoma did not get – I believe Seattle did)?
$0.60/1 printable coupon (CommonKindness)
You’d pay $17.78 at checkout, plus get the $5 Catalina = that’d be like getting these big refills for $6.39 each (works out to 1.6 cent/wipe).
Another scenario for the Huggies Catalina offer, which I think is a pretty smokin’ deal:
Buy (2) Pull-ups for $8.99 each
Use (2) $2/1 coupons from 5/19 SmartSource
OR $2/1 printable coupon (looks like you need to register?)
OR $1.50/1 printable coupon (Common Kindness)
Pay: $13.98 at checkout
Receive a $5 Catalina
Bottom line: as low as $4.49 each!
Here are some additional Huggies coupons I’m aware of:
$1.50/1 Lil’ Movers Slip-on Diapers Printable coupon (CouponNetwork.com)
$1/1 GoodNites printable coupon (requires registration)
$1.50/1 Huggies printable coupon (Common Kindness)
$2/1 Lil’ Movers Slip-on Diapers printable coupon (Common Kindness)
There were also some Huggies coupons in the 5/19 SmartSource, but I do not think Tacoma got them (Seattle probably did)
Do you know of any others?
I found this basal body thermometer in the fertility section on closeout for $2.80 and there were quite a few of them! I know this is a side subject that really has little to do with couponing, but I highly recommend the book Taking Charge of your Fertility if you’re hoping to get pregnant (this book has a 5-star rating after 1,100 reviews). Check it out at your library and pick up one of these thermometers. In my opinion, it’s more effective and less spendy than the ovulation prediction kits. (There’s my free fertility tip for the day!)
So I did share the Arm & Hammer deals with you this week, but I didn’t know I’d find a blinkie machine!
Arm & Hammer 4X Concentrated Detergent $2.99
$1/1 blinkie coupon
Bottom line: $1.99
(It says it’s supposed to do 60 loads. We’ll see!)
Trident Layers Gum $1 (through 5/25)
$1/3 coupon from 5/19 SmartSource
Bottom line: $0.67 each
Deals Beyond Groceries
Do you ever shop beyond Fred Meyer’s grocery aisles? There is often a treasure trove of deals and clearance finds just waiting to be discovered! My biggest tip for shopping these aisles is to DIG. When you see that Fred Meyer is offering up an extra 50% off home clearance (as they are this week), you really need to go up and down every aisle. At the stores I shop at, the clearance is intermixed down aisles, on end caps and sometimes, in back of the store areas.
Here are a few things I found today at my store (yours may vary, of course).
Kids’ character cups and serveware. The prices would start at a little over a buck under this sale.
Seasonal serveware found on an end cap in housewares. I adore the pumpkin jar! It was about $7 after the extra 50%.
Flannel sheet sets for about $10
I thought this Cars bed tent was adorable! It was only $10 after the clearance, too.
This spice rack organizer was just $5.75 after the clearance sale!
Lots of furniture on discount, too!
I’d love to know what additional things you’re finding on sale this week at Fred Meyer! And make sure to check out this week’s Fred Meyer deals if you’re at all planning on making a trip out.
