Ashley's QFC Almost Nightmare!

Today, I tried the QFC $5 ONYO sale... It didn't go that great. I was under the impression
you would get more than one $5 Cat in a single transaction, which is not the case.
After two transactions, I talked with the manager, who gave me a $10 credit on my
3rd transaction, and I ended up with $10 in cat left over, but they weren't planning on
doing that for anyone else... It seemed like they had gotten it a lot today, and were making
a plan on how to put signage up to show customers they will not do it going forward.
So, I will show my savings, but the transactions wont matter... So here goes!

Blinkies - Coupons from the little black boxes on the store shelves
IP - Internet printable
Catalina - These can be a gold mine. Catalina's come from the little machine next to the cash register. You will receive a coupon for $x off a certain item or $x off your next order over $x.

Zaycon Foods: Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast

If your looking to stock up on some boneless skinless chicken breast for a low price now is your chance. Zaycon Foods is rolling out boneless skinless chicken breast  nation wide for just $1.69 per pound!  Ordering is open in Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana and they are stating registration will open in all 48 states by 9/18. You may order until the cut-off date, or until the product is sold out.

From Zaycon's website:

• 100 % natural chicken with no added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients
• Comes directly from the processor and has never been frozen
• Sold by the case — 40 lbs in each case
• Case dimensions—18 in wide x 12 in deep x 7 in tall
[NOTE: Our chicken is delivered in its original wholesale packaging, a water resistant cardboard case containing three or four plastic bags of fresh chicken breasts. The smaller bags are typically sealed in a larger plastic bag. The smaller bags are not uniform in weight. There will be small amounts of naturally occurring liquids (i.e.,"chicken juice") in each bag and case. Chicken breasts typically come in double-lobed pairs ("butterfly") and will have small attached amounts of fat.]

To get the deal:
Go to
Log in or Sign up
Select the location and time that works best for you
Place your order
You will pay $67.60 for 1 - 40 lb case. You can either stock your freezer with all 40 lbs or you can split with a friend.

There will be a little "prep" work when you get home as they come in 3-4 bags with in the case. If your a simplest like me, toss 2 - 4 breast butterflies in a freezer bag and label.  If you like your chicken trimmed, simply plan a little more time to prep.

I plan to do 15 lbs as 2 breast bags, 15 lbs as 4 breast bags, slice 5 lbs into strips and finally toss a few pounds into the crock pot for shredded chicken.  I will probably also toss in some marinade into some of the bags before freezing.

Lorri's albertson's trip

I also stopped in at Albertson's this afternoon, Here is a prime example of couponing gone wrong. Hey even the best of us have flub ups. I tried to roll my $2 Kraft Catalina from last week into a new Kraft Catalina. I had my qualifying products list however when grabbing the meat, I grabbed Salami instead of Bologna. 
Transaction 1:
2 Kraft Single Cheese - $1.28 each (Limit 2)

Used $2 Kraft Catalina from last week

* I was anticipating Transaction 2 to be $.11 oop however sense I grabbed the wrong type of lunch meat I did not earn the Catalina from transaction 1. $4.67 is still not a bad price for 6 items... this just goes to show even the seasoned couponers have off days.

Lorri's Target deals

I ran in to Target today for a few "freebies" I normally don't do Target as Albertsons, Safeway and Rite aid keep me plenty busy  but we desperately needed sponges. Sense I'm on the North West side of town, my prices are slightly higher then free.  Still at just $.08 per item is a great price!
Low down:
Up & Up 2 pack sponges - $1.09 each
Up & Up Ibuprofen 2 ct. - $1.07 each

We we out of coffee and its been about 6 weeks sense I've seen stock up prices on coffee. This is defiantly one of those stock up prices, even before the Catalina.
The deals:

My store also has a Netbook set up that anyone can use to add or review their Just For U account. I have the Safeway app on my phone, where I can add coupons with a touch of a button. I love having it on my phone, where I can review my account while I shop!
