What deals are you finding at the 50% off Dominick's stores?

We were in town today, and upon hearing that the Dominick's locations that are 50% off for many non-grocery items included candy, my entire family insisted we go back to Dominick's today for a candy run. We went to the Lake in the Hills/Algonquin Dominick's, and here are some of the things we found...

  • All candy IS indeed 50% off. The medium-sized bags of M&Ms are $3.69, so $1.85 after the discount. Just .85 with the
    $1 coupons from the 10/27 RP (exp. 12/8!) There are also $1-off-2 coupons in the 12/8 insert, 11/24 RP and 11/10 RP, and a printable for the holiday varieties. This store was out of Christmas M&MS already, but guess what else I found? 4th of JULY M&Ms, red white and blue, also for $1.85. (Hey, the $1-off-2 coupons are for HOLIDAY M&Ms, but they don't say which holiday..!) Those M&Ms don't expire until 3/14, so we'll be celebrating our nation's independence all winter long...
  • My son needed two bags of gumdrops for a school gingerbread house-making project. The Safeway brand was $1.50, so .75 after the discount. So were their gummy bears and jelly beans...
  • Kids' chocolate advent calendars are $1.49 - .75 each after the discount. My kids already have theirs for this year, but these don't expire until March 2015, so I got some for next year...!
  • All of the Good Cook cooking tools, utensils, cake pans and baking pans are 50% off too, and there were a lot of people in this aisle! Many of the cake pans were in the $3-4 range after discount, and a lot of the hand kitchen tools (spatulas, basters, whisks) were $1.50-$2.50 after the discount.
  • The hardware aisle is also 50% off, and this includes things like light bulbs, car care products, shoe polish, Rit dye, and sewing supplies. I grabbed some sewing needles, shoe polish, and a few packs of extra-long skate laces, as those can be hard to find when you need them (if you skate, that is!)
  • There is a sign in the bakery at our store saying all the fresh baked goods are 50% off too. The kids picked up a $3.99 box of frosted sugar cookies, which did not ring up 50% off at the register. (Always a good idea to watch everything scan!)

I was excited about these Bright Green stainless steel water bottles! They were on sale for $2.50, down from their original price of $9.99. With the extra 50% off, they were $1.25 each! My kids have to take these kinds of spillproof stainless bottles for school, so I was happy to pick up a few more today. There are a bunch of these at the LITH store in the seasonal aisle.

We also found these hot-and-cold thermal plastic cups:

My husband loves to use his Keurig to brew over ice, but we only have one of this style of cups that can sustain hot or cold use. For $2.25 each, he was happy to pick up two more cups.

Also, one of the freezer cases was also 50% off at our store:

We picked up a Marie Callender pecan pie for $2 - with the .75 coupon from the 11/10 SS, it was $1.25! (I had that coupon with me, luckily!) We also picked up two Amy's Organic frozen pizzas (spinach and white cheddar) for $2 each.

Other notes: The laundry/cleaning/pet aisles are not part of the 50% off yet, nor are the Hallmark cards and products. The baby aisle at our store is wiped clean (no pun intended!) Not much left there. There are still a lot of vitamins and supplements, and the Safeway brand of these are both Buy One Get One Free AND 50% off the price of the first bottle, so some of those could be good buys.

If you're out shopping, feel free to share any of your good 50% Dominick's deals too!

If you have a child in diapers... check your Dominick's TONIGHT for $1.50 Luvs jumbo packs!

Oh, this is quite possibly the best diaper deal we've seen all year!

Today, the Crystal Lake and Lake in the Hills Dominick's stores dropped all of their non-food items to 50% off. It is likely that other Chicagoland Dominick's stores did the same thing. The 50% off includes all diapers.

As part of their $5 Friday promotion, Luvs jumbo packs and Mom 2 Mom (Safeway brand) diaper packs are on sale for $5. With the 50% discount, they are $2.50 per pack. Either brand are a STELLAR deal at this price!

Print these $1 Luvs printables. After coupon, pay $1.50 per jumbo pack! I am back from the Lake In The Hills store, where I picked some diapers and wipes up for my beautiful nieces. There were still 30-40 packs of Luvs and I'd guess close to 100 Mom 2 Mom jumbos when I left. Three other parents were buying Huggies and Pampers diapers. (Go, go, go!)

The large 3-refill packs of Huggies and Pampers baby wipes are also $5 as part of $5 Friday. They ring up $2.50 after the 50% discount. For Pampers wipes, use this .50 printable coupon and score them for $2! For Huggies wipes, use the .50 coupon in the 11/17 SS and again, pay $2!

You may want to call your store first to verify that the diapers and non-food items are 50% off. At Lake in the Hills, many other categories were also 50% off -- kitchen tools, vitamins, toiletries, and the entire Christmas aisle are also 50% off. I picked up some stocking-stuffer Christmas candy too for my kids super-cheap...

Please feel free to check in with store locations that ARE or ARE NOT 50% off on non-food items today too.
