Yankee Candle coupon


With the approaching holidays, who doesn't love some seasonal candles?!?!
Yankee Candle has out two great coupons right now, click on links for printable coupons...
Right now Bed Bath & Beyond have their Farmers Market, Autumn Wreath and Spiced Pumpkin 25% off, and you can use the manufacturer coupon to save BIG! You can NOT use the store coupon (20% or $5/$15) in addition to the manufacturer coupon. The man q is the better deal!

Scenario #1:
Buy 1 large candle
Buy 1 small candle
use $10 off $25 q
Total $26.23 - $10 q = $16.23 + tax for both

Scenario #2: (if they will accept this coupon, since it states "regularly-priced")
Buy 3 large candles
Use Buy 2, Get 3rd free q
Total $37.48 + tax for 3 large candles = $12.50 each

Scenario 2 is the better deal if you can use that coupon. If so, that's 50% off the regular price!

HT deals for triples starting Wednesday

GM (General Mills) is doing another "Buy 15 items, save $5 instantly". You can save extra by purchasing items that have catalinas out also, which includes [Pillsbury Grands Biscuits, Green Giant frozen boxed vegetables, Old El Paso products (OEP)]. Combining sales, coupons, and catalinas make these items a BIG money maker (MM).

OEP, Buy 6 items (shells, dinner kits, seasonings, refried beans, or heat & serve side dishes) and get a $3 coupon for off your next order (oyno). Seasoning packets are 79¢, shells are $1.50, Dinner kits are $2, refried beans are $1.25.

Green Giant, Buy 5 boxes and get $3 coupon for oyno, Buy 4 and get $2 oyno, Buy 3 and get $1 oyno. These are gonna be on sale for 99¢ each. GG frozen boxed veggies ARE included

Pillsbury Grands, Buy 5 rolls (all sizes) and get $2 oyno, Buy 4 and get $1.50 oyno, Buy 3 and get $1 oyno. Grands biscuits are BOGO.

Also available under the GM deal are the Totino's Pizza Rolls (small boxes 15 ct) B2G3F, Wanchai Ferry Frozen Entrees $5.99, Chex Mix $1.67.

On sale, but not in GM deal are Green Giant (can corn peas or green beans)-B2G3

Internet printables are/were available at coupons.com and smartsource.com (a lot of these have reached print limit and were removed)

My trip will include:
(5) GG frozen veggies for 45¢ (use 2x 50¢/2 and 1x 50¢/1)
(6) OEP seasoning packets for free (use 3x 60¢/2)
(5) Totino's Pizza rolls boxes for $3.18 (use 1x 40¢/2 because they are B2G3)

ends up being a $1.82 MM, but will buy produce to fill it to break even (since HT doesn't give overage) and I will get a $3 oyno q for beef/chicken (from OEP) and a $3 oyno coupon (from GG). That's being paid $7+ to walk out with over $25 worth of groceries.

You can "roll" this catalina deal by using the $3 oyno coupons into another deal. For instance, I will take my $3 oyno q from GG and use it again to do another round of veggies, Wanchai Ferry, Grands, and Chex Mix deal and get another round of "oyno coupons" to use for produce.

Sound the alarm...HT is having triples next week 16th-22nd

FL meat deals this week

There is a $5/$20 meat FLIP floating around, try this link. Remember, the $20 total is pre-MVP price so use those to add your total and maximize.

I did this deal yesterday...
ButterBall Ground Turkey @ $3.29 (used $1 MQ) =$2.29
ButterBall Ground Turkey @ $3.29 (used $1 MQ) =$2.29
Boneless Chicken Breast Fillets 2.00 lbs $5.62 = MVP $2.81
Boneless Chicken Breast Fillets 1.15 lbs $9.78 = MVP $4.90
$21.98 preMVP, $12.29 - $5 Q = $7.29

You can also use this for the ribs that are on special
$4.49/lb regular, $2.99/lb on MVP
Buy 4.5 lbs of ribs for $13.46 - $5 FLIP = $8.46 (~1.88/lb)

You can also use this for snow crab legs that are on special
$6.99/lb regular, $3.99/lb on MVP
Buy 3 lbs of legs for $11.97 - $5 FLIP = $6.97 (~2.32/lb)

FYI, if you use this FLIP on markdown meats it is the final markdown price that is used not the pre-MVP price. You can use it for the ribeyes too, but not sure of the original (pre-MVP) price. You might have to do the math on those:)

Let me know if you have any ?'s with it, and stock those freezers up.
