- First & foremost, I was intrigued by the Gift Card deal going on now. It's buy $100 in gift cards, get a coupon for $20 off your next purchase. There are two places where we always drop money: Gas stations & Lowe's. Shaw's gift cards are excluded from this promo. I ended up just getting a $100 to Lowe's. I bought this right when I walked in and then had a $20 coupon in my pocket.
- I also signed up at Shaws.com for email alerts. This gave me a $5/$25 purchase coupon automatically to my email.
Here are some great deals I scored with coupons:
***FREEBIE ALERT*** - My Shaw's has a Skinny Cow candy display in the front near the condiment isle. These are normally .99 cents each but they are on sale for .69 cents. There are coupons on the display for .75/2. MFCs under $1 double - so essentially, they are giving you .06 cents for each one you buy. I only took one coupon and two candies. You could do more - but you know, clearing the shelf/display is pretty tacky.

Dietz & Watson Deal (Coupon in Flyer - Buy one pound of meat, get 1/2 pound of cheese for free)
1.04 lbs Classic Turkey - $8.31
.50 lbs American Cheese - $3.75 (with coupon, this was FREE!)
I also bought a bunch of produce and meat - but hearing about that is boring.
I did notice that Crystal Light now has "alcoholic" flavors - like Mojito and Margarita. A great way to reduce the calorie intake if you like to make your own mixed drinks. It's not marketed to be a drink mix - but I don't see why not. These flavors are on sale for $2.99 this week.
