Free Duracell Batteries at Dillons/Kroger!!

At Dillons/Kroger right now there is an awesome deal going on!
Duracell batteries are regularly $3.79 each.
They are on sale for $1.98 each
There was a coupon in this past Sunday's coupon inserts for $1.50 Duracell coppertop batteries.

There is also a Catalina deal going on. If you buy $15 worth of Duracell batteries, you get a coupon for $3 off your next shopping trip.

Here is the deal:
Buy 4 packages of Duracell batteries = $7.92 plus tax of $.68
Minus 4 $1.50 coupons = $6.00
Total is $2.60
Plus, since the regular price of the batteries is over $15, you will get a Catalina coupon for $3 back to spend on anything you want the next time you check out!

Final price: You made $.40 for buying 4 packs of batteries!

Now go do the happy dance & stock up on batteries for Chistmas!

Which coupons from 11/14 Sunday inserts are the good coupons?

What an awesome week for coupons! 4 inserts! Keep in mind though, that usually there aren't any on Thanksgiving weekend.

I have been couponing for quite awhile. I'm pretty good at spotting good coupons. I am still really surprised sometimes, which is why I keep all of the coupons until they expire. You never know when a store will have an awesome sale or something could get clearanced that you can match a coupon with. Even if it is something you won't use, you could always donate it, especially if it is free.

These are my best guesses at which coupons from the 11/14 Sunday inserts will result in the best deals:

Red Plum #1:
$.50/2 Carnation evaporated milk (expires 12/31/10) Today is the last day to get them FREE at Dillons!
$1.00/1 Any California Pizza Kitchen product (expires 12/31/10) Check Target & Walmart for best prices!
$.55/1 Nestle Coffee-Mate powder creamer (expires 2/6/11)
$2/2 Purina Friskies or Purina Whisker Lickin's cat treats (expires 1/16/11)
$1.50/1 Duracell CopperTop batteries (expires 12/31/10) Awesome deal going on right now at Kroger/Dillons (see my other post!)
$.75/1 Oral-B pulsar, crossaction, advantage or any 2 Indicator or Cavity Defense manual toothbrushes (expires 12/31/10)
$10/1 Oral-B Vitality or other rechargable electric toothbrush (expires 12/31/10) FREE at CVS this week!
$5/1 Oral-B Replacement brush heads 3-ct or greater (expires 12/31/10) $5 at CVS this week!
$2/1 any Olay Facial Cleanser (expires 12/31/10)
$1/1 Rhodes breads or rolls (expires 2/28/11)
$1/1 Morton Sea Salt product (expires 12/31/10) Probably free at Walmart, I picked up a big container at Dillons/Kroger for only $.50 last night
$.50/1 Herbal Essences or Aussie shampoo, conditioner, or styling product (expires 12/31/10) Only $.49 at CVS this week!

Red Plum #2:
$.50/1 Skippy peanut butter (expires 12/12/10) I will be watching Hyvee for this one!
$.30/1 Shedd's Country Crock spread (expires 12/12/10)
Free pasta when you buy 2 Ragu pasta sauces (expires 12/12/10)
$.50/1 Suave deoderant (expires 12/12/10) FREE at Kroger/Dillons right now!

$.50/1 Reames frozen product (expires 2/14/11) Watch for a Dillons/Kroger $10/10 sale. This will double to be free.
$.40/1 New York brand frozen product (expires 2/14/11)
$1/1 Colgate Total or Sensitive toothpaste (expires 12/4/10) Likely to be free at Walgreens or CVS. The Total is BOGO free at CVS this week and you can use two coupons to get them both at a great price!
$1/2 Bags Hershey's Kisses (expires 12/31/10) There is a Target store coupon out that can be combined with this one.
$1.50/1 Huggies diapers (expires 12/11/10)
$2/1 Huggies Little Snugglers or Little Movers diapers (expires 12/11/10)
$3/1 Air Wick Candle (expires 12/26/10) some scents are FREE at Target right now!

$1/1 Chloraseptic product (expires 3/15/11)
$1/1 Command product (expires 12/31/10)

General Mills
Most of the Pillsbury coupons are really good. Just wait until they are on sale & at a store that doubles, but here are my favorite ones:
$.50/1 Pillsbury Grands sweet rolls (expires 2/5/11)
$.40/2 Pillsbury refrigerated sweet rolls (expires 2/5/11)
$.40/2 Pillsbury crescent rolls (expires 2/5/11)
$.50/2 Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers frozen vegetables
$.40/1 Progresso broth (expires 1/8/11)
$.75/2 Toplait Gogurt (expires 1/8/11)
$.40/1 Betty Crocker cookie mix (expires 1/8/11)
$.50/1 Bisquick (expires 1/8/11)
$.50/1 Chocolate Chex mix (expires 1/8/11)

Again, these are just the coupons that I expect will result in great buys. I wanted to post this just to help anyone just getting started to see what coupons are likely to be used. Get your inserts, cut out and organize your coupons, and then wait for a sale! I do recommend getting multiple copies of the inserts. Ask friends, family or coworkers for their leftovers if newspapers are too expensive in your area. Also remember that coupon values are regional and can vary from paper-to-paper even in the same region, so if you didn't get these exact values, that is pretty common.
