A few hot deals

Updated with some Ralphs and Vons/Pavilions finds

I just got home from shopping, and I got quite a few hot deals that I wanted to share before I run over to Ralphs (if I find any super hot deals there, I'll add them to this post). Unfortunately, many of the printable coupons are no longer available, but I noted most of them when they were available so chances are you might be holding onto them too, hoping for a good deal like the ones below. Note that some of these end today because of expiring coupons:

TARGET
Finish Quantum Tabs 10-ct $2.50
- $1.50/1 Finish Quantum Target printable (no longer available?)
- $1/1 Finish Quantum Detergent 1/23/2011 SS Insert (exp 2/28/2011)
FREE
Note: The shelf had two tags - one for the $2.50 price and one for $2.69. I was happy to see it ring up for $2.50 at the register.

Clorox Wipes $2.28
- $0.75/1 Clorox Target printable
- $1/1 Clorox Facebook printable (no longer available)
$0.53
Note: I just spotted a $1/2 selected Clorox products printable, so if your Target lets you use 2 Target coupons per transaction, you'll pay $2.06 for two.

Seventh Generation Wipes $2.99
- $1/1 selected Seventh Generation products Target printable
- $1/1 Seventh Generation Product 1/23 RP
$0.99

Earth's Best Sesame Street Organic Honey Sticks $1.72
- $1/2 Earth's Best Sesame Street products printable
$1.22 each WYB 2
Note: This isn't the greatest deal ever, but I think this is something the boys will like, it's organic and low sugar, and it'll make a nice "dessert" in their lunchboxes or for a snack. There's a peelie on the front of the boxes for a free DVD when you buy 3 Earth's Best products.


WHOLE FOODS
Pacific Foods Kosher Chicken Broth $1.25
- $1/1 Pacific Foods printable (no longer available)
$0.25


VONS/PAVILIONS (possibly all Safeway stores)
3 California Pizza Kitchen pizzas $5 (today is the last day for this price)
- $5 off $15 frozen food purchase from Sunday's newspaper insert
- 3 x $1.25 CPK product Facebook printable (no longer available)
Received 3 Catalinas for $1.25 off my next order
$0.83 each after coupons & Catalinas
(Via For the Mommas - worked beautifully for me today, but they were very low on stock!)


RALPHS
Eggo Waffles $0.89 WYB 10 participating Daytona items (includes $3 Catalina discount off your next order)
- $0.55/1 Eggo Waffles 2/27 SS
FREE + possible overage

Pam Cooking Spray (selected varieties) $1.89 WYB 10 participating Daytona items (includes $3 Catalina discount off your next order)
- $0.35/1 Pam Cooking Spray 1/23 SS (exp 3/13)
$1.19
Note: This is a great price for cooking spray, and I am really excited about it because I'd just opened my last can and was dreading paying full price for cooking spray in the near future.

Purex Laundry Detergent $2.39 WYB 10 participating Daytona items (includes $3 Catalina discount off your next order)
- $1/1 Purex detergent from Ralphs home mailer (exp 4/17)
$1.39

Hefty Zip Top Bags $0.99 WYB 10 participating Daytona items (includes $3 Catalina discount off your next order)
- $1/1 Hefty item from Ralphs home mailer (exp 4/17)
FREE

Vitaminwater Zero $1
- $0.50/1 Vitaminwater Zero from Diet Coke booklet (found at Vons/Pavilions; also reportedly at CVS and Rite Aid)
FREE

Menu Plan Monday: Keeping Costs Down


I've noticed my grocery spending creeping up a bit - mostly because I've resumed weekly runs to Trader Joe's and sometimes I get a little carried away in there (they have the cheapest quarts of milk, and I have to buy one quart a week, in addition to the one to two gallons that I buy at Pavilions, which has the lowest price on organic gallons). I'm trying to be more conscious of what I'm buying at Trader Joe's, but what might end up being most effective is to give myself a weekly budget for TJ and not let myself exceed it. I'll probably try that during the month of March to see how it goes. In the meantime, here's what we'll be eating this week:

Monday - Sausage & Bean Soup with Cabbage, Dinner Rolls

Tuesday - Meatball Heroes on artisan bread

Wednesday - Chicken Pot Pie (using leftover frozen chicken from last week's whole chicken dinner)

Thursday - Pan Bagnat

Friday - Frozen pizza & salad (we'll probably get home late this day, so I figured I'd take it very easy and make the Freschetta pizza that's in the freezer)

Saturday - Breakfast for dinner (pumpkin pancakes, bacon, eggs)

Sunday - Dinner out

Morning Coffee: Happy Birthday Swagbucks!

Swagbucks celebrates their third birthday today with lots of codes and some changes. So head over to see what's going on, and if you haven't signed up yet, don't forget to use my referral link and code 3rdBirthday28 to get 50 bonus Swag Bucks (80 total!) just for joining. And thank you if you join(ed) Swagbucks using my referral link!

I have bought vanilla beans before, but they are expensive, so I'm happy to see this deal at Amazon: 1/2 lb of Madagascar vanilla beans for $22.29, or 16 Madagascar vanilla beans for $9.48 or $0.59 per bean. The 1/2 pound is approximately 54 beans, which works out to $0.41 per bean. Both items come with free shipping. I am debating getting the 1/2 pound and making Love and Olive Oil's Homemade Vanilla Extract. Disclosure: I'm an Amazon affiliate, so any purchase you make after entering Amazon through a link on Chief Family Officer supports this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you!

I was planning to rent a carpet cleaner from Ralphs this week, because the carpets really need a serious cleaning - the cost would have been about $50, and I would only have had 24 hours to clean the entire house. So I was thrilled to find Sense to Save's recommendation for the Hoover SteamVac Carpet Cleaner - it's $136 with free shipping, and her readers recommended a vinegar solution instead of the commercial cleaner.

Amazon's free MP3 of the day is Someone Like You by Adele. Entertainment Weekly can't seem to get enough of her and her new album - she's been mentioned in multiple issues.

Also free at Amazon are two Kindle downloads (and remember, you don't need a Kindle because you can use one of the free Kindle reading apps): PR 2.0: New Media, New Tools, New Audiences - about "how marketing professionals can leverage these new tools to enhance PR activities"; and Good, Better, Best Buy - about the history of Best Buy.

Wild for Wags reports that you can get cheap Coke Zero at Walgreens.

For the Mommas has some helpful Rite Aid updates.

Facebook likers of Purex can get a printable coupon for $1/1 Purex Complete Crystals Softener.

Common Sense with Money reports that you can get a Dyson DC17 vacuum for $241 at Sears this week with $5 off coupon code SEARS2011. Ship to store for free or pay $14. The same vacuum is over $400 after shipping at Amazon.

Morning Coffee: Looking forward to Walgreens shopping this week

Did you see the Walgreens deals I posted yesterday? I have some of the $6/2 Motrin coupons left, so I'm excited about paying just the tax (~$0.60) and getting a $3 RR back. We are running low on a few staples, so I'll be able to pick them up cheap with these RR. (And that's the beauty of The Drugstore Game!)

Groupon is offering 3 Redbox rentals for just $1 again (rentals are usually $1 each). This is an online deal that can be purchased by anyone regardless of location. When you make your purchase, you can shop through Ebates to get back 3% of your purchase, or through Swagbucks to get 315 Swag Bucks (and you only need 450 Swag Bucks to get a $5 Amazon gift card - learn more here). Thank you if you join(ed) Groupon using my referral link!

Facebook likers of NeilMed can get a free NeilMed Sinus Rinse (but not if you've previously received a freebie from them).

Stretching a Buck has this week's Target deals.

Keep an eye on your Rite Aid receipts - instead of a sweepstakes entry, you'll now get a $3 off $15 purchase coupon. (Via For the Mommas.)

A Full Cup user kayjaydoubleu00 reports that Rite Aid brand fabric softener sheets (80 ct) are on sale for $0.99 and producing a $1 +UP, making them free.

Giveaway: $25 Sonic Gift Card

A while back, the folks at Sonic sent me a $25 gift card in conjunction with a campaign I helped promote, but since there isn't a Sonic nearby, I still haven't used the gift card and I don't think I will anytime soon. So I figured I'd give it away to one of you instead!

To enter, just fill out the form below and tell me what your favorite menu item is, or what you're looking forward to trying at Sonic. Email and RSS subscribers may need to click through to the blog in order to see the form. If you're having trouble with your entry, you can go directly to the published form.

For a second entry, subscribe to CFO via RSS or email and fill out the form again to let me know you've done so. You'll get the latest on CFO delivered right to your favorite feed aggregator or inbox. If you're already a subscriber, just fill out the form to let me know (and thanks!).

For a third entry, follow me on Twitter and tweet about the giveaway. Then fill out the form to let me know you've done so (include the link to your update).

For a fourth entry, blog about the giveaway on your own blog or mention it on Facebook. Then let me know about it by filling out the form again with the link to your post.

You can enter up to four times (one for each type), and you must complete the form once per entry. Only one entry of each type per email address will be counted. I'll select the winner using Random.org and announce them here on CFO as well as contact them by email. Winners must respond within 24 hours, otherwise their prize will be forfeited and a new winner will be selected. Additionally, these guidelines apply to all giveaways here at CFO.

The giveaway ends at noon PST on Friday, March 5 4, 2011, and is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada. Good luck!

Ralphs: 2/23 - 3/1/11

Note: This summary of deals is based on the ad I get in Los Angeles, where Ralphs stores double coupons up to $1 (one like coupon per transaction). I don't list all of the deals, only the good ones. If I missed any, please let us all know in the comments. You'll need a Ralphs Rewards card to get most of these deals, so I use the Rewards card price in this post and assume you have your card scanned with each transaction. In addition to the coupons listed, you can also add electronic coupons to your Ralphs Rewards card at these sites: Shortcuts.com, Cellfire.com, Softcoin and Upromise. I find the electronic coupons to be unreliable when it comes to stacking them with paper coupons, so I assume they do not stack in the scenarios below. I don't print every coupon listed, so please verify amounts and quantities listed. If you give Ralphs your email address, they may also send you emails with e-coupons that are exclusive to your card. And if you bring reuseable bags, Ralphs will give you 5 Rewards points for each bag used (though you may need to remind the cashier).

At least some stores in LA County are still doubling multiple like coupons, including my own store. But until this seems to be a permanent state of affairs, I'm going to assume that only one like coupon will double per transaction.

Morning Coffee: Ralphs deals will *hopefully* be up later today

I didn't get my weekly Ralphs circular in yesterday's mail because of the holiday on Monday, and for some reason, I can't access the circular online either, which means I can't do the match ups! Hopefully I'll be able to get to Ralphs sometime today to pick up an ad, and the match ups will go up this afternoon.

Disclosure: I'm an Amazon affiliate, so any purchase you make after entering Amazon through a link on Chief Family Officer supports this site at no additional cost to you. Thank you!

Amazon is once again offering a one-month free trial of Amazon Prime. I've had a free Prime membership through Amazon Mom for a few months now, and I love it so much I'm actually contemplating paying for it when my free Prime runs out!

And now, if you pay for Prime, or sign up for the free trial, you can get Prime Instant Videos, which provides unlimited, commercial-free, instant streaming of thousands of movies and TV shows at no additional cost. It's supposed to rival Netflix streaming, but Amazon's selection is so much more limited at the moment that it's not worth signing up for Prime for the video benefits. If you already have Prime, though, it's a nice benefit. Note that Prime Instant Videos are not included with the free shipping benefits provided by Amazon Mom, Amazon Student, or if you are a guest of an Amazon Prime member.

Next Tuesday (3/1), you can try Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's Spring Peach Tea Latte, Spring Peach Iced Tea Latte, or Peach FruTea for free from 4 to 7 p.m. at participating locations.

Farfalle with Cauliflower and Raisins

I don't know if your kids will like this (mine didn't), but I thought it was a nice pasta salad and a pleasant change of pace from the usual pasta dish.

Farfalle with Cauliflower and Raisins
Serves 4-6

1/2 cup raisins
1 cup hot water
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large head of cauliflower, broken into small florets
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 2-oz can oil-packed anchovies
3/4 cup chicken broth (or white wine)
12-16 ounces dried farfalle, cooked according to package directions
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1. Combine raisins and hot water and set aside.

2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the cauliflower and garlic and saute until the cauliflower is lightly browned (about 10 minutes). Add the red pepper flakes and anchovies, and stir until the anchovies have mostly dissolved. Add the broth or wine and simmer until the cauliflower is "al dente" and the liquid has reduced by half (about 15 minutes). Stir in the pasta. Serve with Parmesan cheese.

Note: I cooked the pasta first until it was al dente, then drained it and covered the colander with the lid while I cooked the cauliflower in the same pot. (I set aside some pasta tossed with a little butter for the boys.) This dish is great cold the next day.

Morning Coffee: $4/gallon gas

I noticed that the price of gas at Costco had risen significantly but I was still shocked when I spotted a gas station in Studio City selling premium gas at $4.10/gallon. And apparently it's not the place in LA that's hit the $4 mark. Hopefully, like last time, the price won't stay this high. At least there are other deals to be had!

Amazon's last Grocery Lightning Deals today is white cheddar Pirate's Booty at 6 p.m. The pack of 72 1-ounce bags should go for less than the Subscribe & Save price of $41.93, or less than $0.58/bag.

Happy Birthday Swagbucks! (With Special Registration Code)

As I've mentioned before, I've been a Swagbucks user for over two years now, and I still love the site. The search engine works well and they pay me to use it by giving me Swagbucks that I can redeem for awesome free stuff, like Amazon gift certificates.

Even if all you do is search with Swagbucks, you should earn enough to redeem for one or two $5 Amazon certificates per month - that's an extra $60 to $120 per year for doing something you normally do anyway. I use Firefox as my primary browser, and I was able to install the Swagbucks toolbar plugin to make Swagbucks the search engine at the top right corner, so I don't have to do anything extra to use Swagbucks all the time.

But while using the search engine remains my favorite way to earn Swagbucks, there are lots of way to earn:
  • Print Coupons.com coupons - It takes several weeks to get credit for redeeming these, but this is my second-favorite way to earn Swagbucks since again, it's something I do anyway.

  • Take the daily poll - You'll earn 1 Swagbuck every day when you take the daily poll, and it takes all of five seconds.

  • Use the toolbar - If you install the full toolbar, you'll earn 1 Swagbuck per day. As I mentioned, I use Firefox as my primary browser, but I often need a second browser at least once per day, so I've installed the toolbar in Internet Explorer and get my daily Swagbuck when I open it.

  • Refer new users - You get matching Swagbucks up to 1000 when your friends join Swagbucks using your referral link. Thank you so much if you join(ed) Swagbucks using my referral link!

  • Buy the Daily Deal - Swagbucks recently teamed up with Froobi.com to offer a deeply discounted watch each day, and a daily discounted shopping special. For each purchase, you'll receive a Swagbucks rebate, and the more deals that are purchased, the more the amount of the rebate.

  • Play free games.

  • Take surveys.

  • Also, you can sign up for Special Offers, No Obligation Special Offers, Shop Through Swagbucks, and trade in various old items.
If you haven't yet joined Swagbucks, there's no better time than right now - through February 28, use bonus code 3rdBirthday28 when you sign up to get a total of 80 Swagbucks just for joining. (You only need 450 to get a $5 Amazon gift card.) Thank you if you join(ed) Swagbucks through my referral link!

Best of all, Swag Bucks is celebrating their third birthday next Monday (February 28), which means they'll be rewarding us! The birthday extravaganza will feature at least five Swag Codes, a new look and feel for the Swagbucks Blog and the launch of two new features, one of which will redefine the way you use their search function. So make sure you're tuned into Swagbucks next Monday!

Morning Coffee: Happy President's Day

Holiday weekends usually mean fewer coupons, but they often compensate with great sales. I didn't make it to Staples yesterday, so I'm definitely going today for their free-after-rebate deals. Other deals available today:

Amazon also has a pair of Sterling Silver Angel Wing Earrings for just $10. They're a new item with a list price of $30.

Target has a bunch of new printable coupons, including $5/1 women's denim (could be free with a clearance!), and $1.50/1 10-ct+ Quantum Finish (pair with $1/1 Quantum Finish from the 1/23 SS to get the 10-ct box free or cheap).

And speaking of Target, Stretching a Buck has this week's match ups.

Wild for Wags has some updates on this week's Walgreens deals.

Morning Coffee: Crazy LA Weather

A couple of weeks ago, it was so hot that we were all wearing shorts and t-shirts, but yesterday the high was around 50 degrees and it poured all night. Apparently hail fell in various parts of LA, but I didn't notice if it hailed here. At least it looks like the rain is gone, although it's going to be cold today (well, cold for LA!).
