Pittsburgh Area Fresh Produce Picks: August 25-30


Because of all the "stuff" that has gone on with my family this year . . . my garden is pitiful.  : )  So, I decided to try price matching at WALMART!  So far it has been working wonderfully!!  It couldn't be any easier.  : )


(NOTE: Make sure you pay attention to the Walmart prices! Sometimes they are cheaper than any of the grocery stores.)

Steps to a smooth transaction:
1. Tell the cashier up front that you will be price matching the fresh produce.
2. Lay out each ad that you will be using on the belt (with the advertised produce side facing up).
3. Place the produce on top of the corresponding ad.
4. Cashier picks up the produce and the ad to match at the same time.


Once again, I put together a spreadsheet listing all the fresh produce in the ads (the ones that I have - Giant Eagle, Shop 'n Save, Aldi, Foodland, Khun's, Save a Lot, and BiLo) this week. I've listed out all the prices for the produce so that you can easily see which store has that item advertised and where it is the cheapest. You can then either shop the store(s) of your choice or you can take your whole stack of ads to Walmart and have them price match the lowest advertised prices for all the items.
(NOTE: If you didn't recieve the above ads in the mail, just print off the add from the linked websites above and take that into Walmart. As long as the sale dates show up on the print out, Walmart will honor the ad. Also, make sure that you do not print any of the ads before they officially begin in the stores as most of the time the ads are not posted/updated on the stores' websites until the day the items go on sale in the store.)

Produce Picks Aug. 25-30


By the way, I'm open to adding more stores if anyone wants to either volunteer, suggest a store, and/or figure out how to get me an ad for that store.

Rite Aid Deal and Transaction Scenarios 8/21 to 8/27

 

New to Rite Aid shopping? Visit the RiteAid page for more information.

All my scenarios will reflect my personal goal to either make money or at least not to have spent any at the end of the month - after I get my Single Check Rebate, Rite Aid gift cards, and/or MIR checks.

**Unless otherwise indicated, there is a limit of one single check rebate per item.

And once again, I'm just playing catch-up. (Things should be more normal soon; school is about to start and we'll be on a definite schedule.) Saturday evening our soon-to-be son was moved into our house. We spent the better part of the late afternoon/evening signing paperwork and putting away his clothes. If you think of us, we'd appriciate your prayers. No adoption is ever final until it is final. There are so many things that could go wrong (things which we have no control over - paperwork and court issues). We are running into some of those things, but this is not new for us. We ran into "issues" with our first son's adoption process too.

Giant Eagle: August 18-24

  • Giant Eagle's ad runs from Thursday to Wednesday.
  • My GE doubles all coupons up to $0.99.
  • Don't forget to load your GE card with Giant Eagle's EOffers and with e-coupons from Shortcuts andCellfire. (If the same coupon is on more than one site, only load one at a time. After you have redeemed/used the first coupon, then go back and load the next. If you load both to your card, you will loose one of them. Also, don't load more than 45 eCoupons/eOffers to your card. For some reason your card will malfunction when there are more than 45 eCoupons on it at any one time.)
  • Be careful with the CAT deals. If you do two of the same CAT deals in the same transaction, the CAT may not print. Check your ad to make sure that you separate like CAT deals into separate transactions.
