Bi-Lo has a great promotional going on where you get a code worth $10 on Visa Debit for buying 4 participating items. What was not made clear enough was the fact that these Visa Debit ecards could only be used online to purchase digital products like music and movies. Well, not everyone, including myself, spends money on this type of product. So, I had to find another way to spend my money.

I loaded my Visa Debit ecard onto my Amazon gift card account, using the 'gift card reload' button. It was really quite simple after redeeming my codes. I do buy from Amazon and usually try to keep a balance on my account, so this worked out perfectly. For those of you who don't have an Amazon account, it's very easy to create one. They sell almost everything, so you shouldn't have a problem spending your money wisely.

You might also try loading it to Paypal. I have heard that Walmart.com will also accept them, but I haven't done this, so I can't verify.

There is a coupon floating around on Facebook for $75 off of an $80 purchase at Publix. I have spoken with Publix Corporate Customer Service and they assured me that this is scam. This coupon will not be accepted. Please do not share any information in order to get this coupon.

This week, through Saturday, Staples is offering the Brother HL-2320d Mono Laser Printer for just $59.99. This is, by far, one of the best printers around for printing coupons. I bought my first one as a Black Friday deal in 2009 at this same price. I used it for about 4 years before I upgraded to the wireless version. I have not regretted either purchase. The printer comes with a starter cartridge that will print about 700 pages. When that runs out, you can purchase a replacement compatible cartridge for around $12 from Amazon or other online outlets. The full version cartridge will print 2600 pages. You are likely to not need but one new cartridge per year. Click HERE to see the deal. The wireless version is on sale for $99.99.  This is a black-only printer.


One deal that I can never pass up is a good deal on M & M's! I am totally addicted! Well, this week, Publix has the 8-11 oz bags on BOGO at $3.79. This makes them $1.90 per bag. Throw in a coupon and you've got a great deal.

M&M’s Chocolate Candies, Assorted Varieties, 8 to 11.4 oz, BOGO $3.79
 -$1.50/2 M & M Brand 9.4 oz + printable  OR
 -$1.50/2 M & M's  9.4 oz + RP 9/25

You will pay just $1.15 per bag.

This deal is valid through 10/18 or 10/19, depending on your area.

Need to stock up on tissues? Right now Publix has Scotties Tissues, 60-120 count boxes, on BOGO at $1.25. As if .62 is not low enough, a coupon makes it even better. Here's the deal:

Scotties Facial Tissues, 60-120 ct., B1G1 at $1.25 (62¢)
-$1/5 Scotties boxes 50-ct.+, or (1) bundle pack facial tissue, RP 10/09  (Makes it .42) OR
-$1/3 Scotties Tissues printable  (Makes it .29)


Some nights I just don't feel like cooking a big meal, but a sandwich just won't fill the bill. That's when I go to my freezer in search of something that will be both quick and tasty. One of my favorites is Marie Callender's Chicken Pot Pies. This week, Publix has a great deal on them, and that's made even better with a coupon. Here's the deal:

Marie Callender’s Pot Pie, 10-45 oz, B1G1 at $9.99 ($4.99)
-$1.25 off Marie Callender’s Frozen Multi-Serve meal or family size pot pie, 24-45 oz, Publix ecoupon OR
-$1.25 off Marie Callender’s frozen multi-serve meal or family size pot pie, 24-25 oz printable OR
-$1 off Marie Callender’s frozen multi-serve meal or family-size pot pie, 24-45 oz, SS 10/09

You will pay as little as $3.74 for a pot pie that will feed a small family. You could buy 2 if needed and still not spend more than $8. That's a great deal for a very satisfying meal in my book! You may want to add a salad or some fruit, but still a good deal.

This week, October 12 - October 18, Bi-Lo will have an awesome deal on Dixie Crystals sugar. It will be priced at $2 per 4 lb. bag. There was a .55-off coupon in the SmartSource insert dated October 9. This coupon is marked "Do Not Double," but some stores will do it anyway. There is also a Publix coupon for .55 off in their Explore New Flavors Booklet or printable HERE. Most Bi-Lo stores will accept this as a competitor's coupon. This makes the sugar .90 or .35 if the manufacturer's coupon doubles. Either way, it's a great deal.


Have you been wanting to join Sam's Club, but just couldn't justify paying $45+ for the membership fee. I enjoy my membership, but only join when I can get a special deal like this one. It offers the same perks as the regular priced membership. I think my favorite things about Sam's are the gas prices and the cheese prices.

Well, today is your chance to get the membership for less than half-price, after rewards. Groupon is offering the regular membership for just $25 today, plus you get a $5 egift card and a free Rotisserie chicken. If you prefer a 'Plus' membership, normally $100, they are offering that for just $45. This offer is valid for new members only. Also, if you are a former member, your membership must have been up more than 6 months before October 11, 2016.

If you are not a member of Groupon, go HERE now to sign up for free.

I went shopping at Publix yesterday, expecting them to be out of the Kibbles & Bits, since it was such an amazing deal this week. A raincheck would have been fine, but their shelf was full. With the $3 coupons that were put out last week, this was an amazing deal. It was such a great deal, that I only paid .74 for everything in this picture, and that includes tax!  I normally post my pre-tax totals, because in most cases you still have to pay the same amount in tax. But, as you can see, my pre-tax total was a negative 0.14. If I had purchased this at regular price, I would have paid $46.70 plus tax. That means that I saved $46.84, which is 100% of the regular price, and then some!

The dog food was on BOGO at $4.89. With $3-off coupons, that created an overage of $1.11 for each 2 bags that I bought. That covered the tax and all but .74 of the rest of my bill. Of course, I had coupons for the JD Biscuits and the Klondike Bars, too.

If you printed those Kibbles & Bits coupons, now is the time to use them. This sale ends tomorrow or Wednesday, depending on your area.

I've been meaning to let you guys know about this for a while now. Food Lion has 6 days left of their 'Quarter Back' Promotion. This is something they normally do once or twice a year. For every store brand product that you buy, in increments of 4, you will receive a coupon for .25 back. In other words, for every 4 store brand products that you buy, you will receive $1.

This is a great time to stock up on the less expensive items that we need every day. I normally stock up on cat food and tomato sauce. Well, I kept forgetting to go to Food Lion when I was grocery shopping, until this week. And since I've been getting so many great deals on Sheba cat food lately, I really don't need that right now. However, my tomato sauce was down to just a couple of cans. So I bought 24 cans @ .39 each. I also picked up 2 boxes of table salt for .49 each and 2 cans of chili beans for .72 each. My total was $11.78 and I got a coupon for $7.00. I think maybe I'll make a list hit this sale once more before it ends on October 11.


This weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Bi-Lo is offering their whole boneless pork loins for just $1.58 per pound. That's a great deal! If you prefer beef, they will have T-Bone steaks for just $4.99 per pound. Another great deal!
