Deals are very slim this week.  But that doesn't mean that good coupons aren't out there.  Since it is the beginning of the month, be sure to print all of the good internet coupons while they last.  Did you know that now you can print coupons right from here?  Check out the bar on the right, where it says "Print Coupons From Here!"

First, if you are new to working deals at Acme, please read the background info on this post. This will explain how the coupons double & how to print two copies of the printable coupons.

Here is what I see this week:

There are a couple random promotions:

-On page 6 of this week's circular are two coupons (however, you can use only one) for either a free box of Yehuda matzos or a $3.99 box of Manischewitz matsos when you make a purchase of $75.  Also, if you spend $25 or more in Manischewitz brand items in one transaction, you will receive a $5 coupon at checkout good for your next shopping trip.

-On page 8 of this week's circular are 16 different coupons that can be used to get $2 off a carton (12 or 18 pack) of eggs.  If you are buying any of these items (such as Kraft mayonnaise for $2.99 or Betty Crocker Warm Delights 2 for $5) clip one of these coupons and $2 will come off your egg purchase.

-On the last page of the circular this week, there are quite a few participating Kraft products--purchase $20 of them and you are eligible to use the $5 off any Lancaster brand rib eye roast or ham.

This week I just see one good deal opportunity using Acme's printless "avenu" coupons, but just be sure to check your offers before you go to shop at your store.  Never used avenu before?  It is very easy.  Go here and enter your Supercard number from your card or one of your receipts.  You will then see some "customized" offers for you and then a list of electronic coupons.  Once you have activated these electronic coupons, all you have to do is purchase the items required for the specific offer that you would like to take advantage of, and the "coupon" will come right off of your total at checkout.  The best thing about these deals is that they CAN be combined with manufacturer coupons!

These offers may vary by region, but I was able to find the following possible good deal using avenu:

Avenu coupon:  Save $1.20 on any 6 Gerber 1st or 2nd Foods. Gerber 2nd foods are on sale for $1 each this week, and I have tons of Catalina (register) coupons available. If you have any of these Catalinas, or any other Gerber baby foods coupons, you might be able to get these down to a really great price.

Non-coupon deals:

California Fresh Strawberries are on sale buy one get one free at $3.99, making these $2 each.

Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Sierra Mist or Mountain Dew 12 pack cans or 6 pack bottles are on sale 4 for $11 (must buy four) using the coupon on the first page of the circular.

Tropicana Pure Premium Orange Juice (cartons and 6 packs) are all on sale for $2.50 each.

Red Star yeast 3-packs are on sale for $1 this week.

Printable coupon deals:

Wholly Guacamole 7-12 oz. packages are on sale buy one get one free at $2.99.  There are $1 printables available here.  Use two of the coupons and you will get 2 packages for $0.99 - that is only 50 cents each!

Yoplait yogurt individual cups are buy 10 at $10, get 10 free.  There are $1 off 8 cups coupons available here.  Pick up 20 cups, use two of the coupons (you could use 3 if you had access to another printer; you are only able to print 2 of the same coupon per computer) and you will pay only $8 for 20 cups - that is only 40 cents each!

Wonka and Sweetart jelly beans are on sale for $1.66 each.  There is a $1 off two coupon here, making these $1.16 each for two.

Newspaper coupon deals:

zzz?!  I can't find any good newspaper coupon matchups this week.  And there were TONS of coupons in today's paper.  Oh well, hold on to those Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Green Giant coupons.  I'm sure there is some type of cool Catalina deal coming up soon!

See anything I've missed, or have any questions?  Please leave it in the comments!
