Unexpected Buys at Weis Last Friday

Here's some good deals I got at Weis this past Friday........

I went in for.....
* Prego sauce x 4, on sale for $1.69=$6.76.  I had .75¢/2 IPQ that doubled so $3 off=$3.76 for all 4.
* Brown sugar x 2, 50% off on Friday=$1.59.
* Hormel chili x 8, part of the .88¢ ea. when you buy 8 Deal=$7.04
* The Friday Freebie, a cup of Weis yogurt(wow!lol)=Free.

What I found when I went in was lots of pumpkin and/or maple related products cheap so how could I resist?! ;-)
So I also came out with this as well.....
* 2 x big Hunt's natural pudding(not pumpkin but 50% off)=$2.50 both
* 2 x Eagle Brand condensed milk, maple flavor(will be great to make maple fudge!)$1 a can=$2
* 5 x assorted Krusteaz mixes(all pumpkin flavors)$1 a box and I had a $1/2 digitalQ come off=$4 for all 5(these retail for $2.99 to $3.59)
* 2 x Jello pudding(pumpkin).50¢ a box and I used a .50¢ Q=.50¢ for both
* 2 x Febreeze air sprays(harvest pumpkin scent)$1 and a $3/2 digital Q came off= -$1(moneymaker)
* 2 x Life cereal(pumpkin spice)$1.88 each(I used a $1/2 ManQ too)=$2.76 for both
* 1 x Mini-Wheats cereal(pumpkin flavor)$1.88(I used a .50¢/1 Q that doubled)=.88¢

I also bought a container of Nutella, it was $1.99 on Friday and I used a $1/1Q so .99¢ out the door.
The Krusteaz earned me an additional .50¢ rebate on SavingStar as well.

Also bought 4 packs of Cottonelle and Viva towels as they were on a weekend sale for $4.50 each when you bought in groups of two.  I had 4 Qs that each doubled to $1 to use on those 4 items so they should have been $3.50 each out the door. And the register should have printed out a $2 OYNO Catalina(for the 2 Cottonelle packs)but didn't.  Hmmm

After studying my receipt at home, I couldn't make heads or tales of my receipt and the total, until I finally figured out that the cashier didn't ring up one of the Cottonelle packs......but he put through both Cottonelle IPQs AND a digital Q attached to my card which meant I paid $13.50 for 3 paper packs and got $5 in Qs worth of discounts so paid $8.50 for the 4 packs I left the store with(and that exxplained the lack of a Catalina printing).LOLOLZ

A trip like this makes up for all the Qs the cashiers miss on the "bad" trips. ;-)

If you see great deals(that you will use)that are unexpected how likely are you to pick them up?



  1. Very nice blog post. I certainly appreciate this website. Stick with it!

  2. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I think that you ought to write more on this subject,
    it may not be a taboo subject but generally people do not speak about such issues.
    To the next! Best wishes!!

  3. See that encouraging comment above? Yeah like stick with it. Or stick on it, or just stick. :) :)

  4. I am very apt to pick up surprise deals when I see them. My local Aldi had canned pumpkin for 59 cents a can. I bought 4 of them, so I am set for a while. Though I am not a huge fan of pumpkin soup I can see making some this winter because, well, cheap pumpkin = cheap dinner.

    1. I'm hoping to get some deals on pumpkin. It's our favorite quick bread.

  5. I always pick up those manager special deals at Kroger. Recently found lentils for $.79 a pound and bought 20. Sale price the week before was $1.49 per pound at a different store. So we're obviously having a buttload of lentil soup and Indian food this winter. :)

  6. My package arrived today. How fast! Thank you! It was sort of like getting a stuffed-full stocking. Fun!

  7. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I do believe that you should publish more on this
    subject matter, it might not be a taboo subject but typically
    people do not talk about these subjects. To the next!

    Many thanks!!
