Advertised and unadvertised deal shopping at Meijer

I went to Meijer today to check out prices on this week's sunscreen deal for you and to shop the sales. I found a few unadvertised offers to share too!

First up: Sunscreen Catalina Deal

Banana Boat and Hawaiian Tropic sunscreens are part of a "Buy $25, Get $10 Catalina" offer this week at Meijer.

My Algonquin Meijer was out of every Hawaiian Tropic product other than the after-sun aloe, so I collected prices for Banana Boat:

Banana Boat Sport 8oz. and 10oz. bonus bottles: $6.79
Banana Boat Kids 8oz. tubes: $7.79
Banana Boat Protect & Hydrate 6oz. bottles: $7.99
Banana Boat Triple Defense Men 6oz. bottles: $7.99

Ibotta has four different $1.25 offers running on these four varieties of Banana Boat. The 6/29 SS has a $1 coupon, and here's a $1 printable.

With four $1 coupons, you could buy one of each ($30.56.) Use four $1 coupons. Pay $26.56 and get a $10 Catalina. Get $1.25 back for each item from Ibotta. That's $11.56 for four, or $2.89 each!

Because my store had the 10-ounce bonus-size Sport bottles, I opted to do the deal a different way so I could take home more sunscreen.

I bought three Banana Boat Sport 10oz. bottles and one Banana Boat Kids 8oz. tube. I used four $1 coupons. I paid $24.16 and got a $10 Catalina. I got $2.50 back from Ibotta, so that's $11.66 for four, or about $2.92 each. For the extra .03 per bottle, I ended up with 38 ounces of sunscreen vs. 30 over the original scenario -- almost like getting another free bottle!

Unadvertised Orange Juice Deal

I saw shelf tags near the orange juice advertising a "Buy $10, Get $3 Catalina" offer on Meijer brand juices. I bought five 59-ounce cartons of Meijer OJ for $2 each. I paid $10 and got a $3 Catalina. That's $7 for five cartons, or $1.40 each!

Unadvertised Bath Tissue Deal

I spotted a "Spend $10, Save $3" ecoupon on Mperks for Meijer bath tissue. I bought one Meijer 6 Mega Roll bath tissue for $6.29 (equivalent to 24 regular rolls - they are some seriously large rolls!). I also bought one Meijer 6 Double Roll bath tissue for $3.99. That's $10.28 -- after the ecoupon, I paid $7.28. If we look at the regular roll equivalencies, this works out to about .20 per regular roll. That's a good price.

Advertised Deals

I also did the "Buy 8" sale on Keebler products. I bought four $1.69 Keebler Club Crackers and Town House Pretzel Thins. And, I bought four $1.49 Keebler cookies. I used two $1-off-2 cracker coupons from the 6/29 RP, and I used four $1.50 cookie coupons from Kellogg's Family Rewards. This dropped the crackers to $1.19 per box, and all of the cookies were free.

Lastly, I did a round of "Buy 10 for $10, Get the 11th FREE." I bought nine Old El Paso taco shells for $1 each. I also bought two bags of Pepperidge Farm Goldfish crackers for $1 each. I used three $1-off-3 printable coupons for the taco shells. I paid $8 for everything -- like getting the taco shells for about .66 per box, paying for one $1 Goldfish and getting the next bag free!

Now I've got the $10 sunscreen Catalina and the $3 juice Catalina for my next trip to Meijer...

Ace Hardware, no one wants cancer-causing toothbrushes.

I was pretty excited when I saw the new Ace Hardware ad that came in today's newspaper. It's filled with coupons for all sorts of bargain-priced items! As I flipped through it this afternoon, I noted some of the items I wanted to pick up:

  • A 6-pack of toothbrushes that come with a toothbrush stand and drinking cup: $1.29, limit 4
  • A 3-pack of kitchen brushes is .99
  • Plastic scoops are .99. My husband wanted one of these to keep in the icemaker in the freezer.
    (I'm not sure what kind of ice needs he's got lately that involve an entire scoop of ice, but that's another story...)

I headed over to Ace tonight and bought everything. I thought the toothbrush sets were a particularly good deal -- I planned to toss one of those in our camping tote and keep an entire set of toothbrushes for the family together. I also grabbed a second plastic scoop, thinking it would be a great thing to keep in the dog food bag instead of the plastic cup that's in there now.

And, of course, I decided to blog about these deals too! I set everything up on the patio table and started taking photographs. That's when I noticed something strange on the tags of the plastic scoops:

RIO stuffed plush Blu parrot just $2.50 at Kohls.com!

If your kids are fans of the RIO and RIO 2 animated movies, they'd probably love to have a large, stuffed plush Blu parrot! Kohls.com has 12" high stuffed plush Blu toys for just $2.50 right now!

My boys were just looking at the ads for deals on the RIO 2 movie on Sunday. They liked that Target's package came with a small stuffed Blu, but they were bickering over which one of them would get Blu. At this price, they can each get one large Blu!

As a reminder, there are still many Kohl's discount codes running if you order online. Today is the last day to get $10 in Kohls Cash when you spend $50 too!
