Price Chopper Coupon Match-ups for Week Starting 2/10/13

For all the new Penny Pinchers, each week I will focus on coupon match ups using the coupons available that week in the Watertown Daily Times.  The reason I do this is that when I first started following the sites it was difficult to follow their coupon match-ups as I had just begun and didn’t have the past six weeks of coupons at hand. 

Abbreviations: SS (SmartSource coupon insert) & RP (Red Plum coupon insert)

  • Oreo’s 2/ $5:  Buy 2 @ $5 – $1 off 2 SS coupon = 2/$ 4.00 or $ 2.00 each
  • Arm & Hammer 125oz Laundry Detergent $ 5.99: Buy 2 @ $ 11.98 – $ 1.00 off Any 2 Arm & Hammer Laundry SS coupon = 2/$ 10.98 or $ 5.49 each
  • Sorrento Mozzarella Cheese 16 oz or 32 oz Ricotta Cheese $ 3.99 – $ 1.00 off any 1 SS coupon = $ 2.99 each
  • Smart Balance Spreadable Butter 2/$4: Buy 1 @ $2.00- $ 1.00 off 1 SS coupon= $ 1.00 each!!!! (This is stock up price…worth grabbing a few newspapers for!!)
  • Beneful Baked Delights Dog Snacks 2/$7: Buy 1 @ $3.50 – $1 off 1 SS coupon = $ 2.50 each

Lots of Price Chopper store coupons in this week’s ad!  Remember the ad you get in the paper will sometimes have coupons that the ads in the store won’t have!  Also there is a special page of coupons in tomorrow’s paper including a coupon for Buy 1 Pantene shampoo or conditioner, get another FREE!  Price Chopper is having a sale on Pantene 3/$10…if you have 3 of these coupons that you means you could get 6 bottles of Pantene shampoo and/or conditioner for $ 10.00 or $ 1.67 each!  This is where asking family & friends who don’t coupon for their coupons out of their Sunday paper comes in handy!!

Also if you shop Price Chopper, don’t forget to hit the iSave machine as you first enter the store!  Use your AdvantEdge card to score extra coupons, many times I get coupons good off of store brand goods!

As I mentioned before, when I first started couponing I found it very frustrating that I would look at coupon matchups and they would contain deals using coupons from several weeks before.  Just getting into couponing, I didn’t have those coupons available to me so I will offer coupon matchups weekly for Price Chopper using just the coupons available in that week’s paper.  That way, whether you are a beginner or a pro, you can all take advantage of the deals I post.

I think homemade pizza rolls will make my meal plan next week!  Crescent Rolls (click here for a coupon), Pepperoni (coupon for Hormel Pepperoni in coupon insert), Sauce & String cheese is all you need!  Take a Crescent Roll, put a few slices of pepperoni on the roll, a spoonful of sauce & half a stick of string cheese & then roll up.  Bake on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees until the crescent roll is a golden brown on top.

If you got your Rite Aid ad in your Watertown Daily Times this week, there is a coupon on page 4 good for $3.00 off 1-Ct Back Patch ThermaCare, which is $3.00, making it FREE!

Rite Aid offers +Up Rewards, which are deals where you buy an item and then you get back so many “rewards” which is essentially money off towards your next purchase.  You must have a Wellness + card (Rite Aid’s store card, it’s free) in order to get the +Up Rewards.  You can use the Up+ Rewards starting the next day.
