Easy Deal of the Week- Free yogurt, anyone?

I am currently a bit under the weather, so I will bless you with but one Easy Deal of the Week this week- but it's a good one! In last Sunday's paper (10/26), there was a coupon for $0.50/1 Breyers product. The coupon has a photo of Breyers ice cream on it, but it states that it is good for any "Breyers product." 

Individual Breyers yogurt cups are usually priced anywhere from $0.50-$0.75 at most grocery stores, so you could get these for free or less than $0.25! Even more exciting, if you have a store (like Kroger for me) that doubles coupons, you could get these free plus a little overage. 

Now, with this deal I am going to try something I have never done before. Since the coupon does not expire until 12/20/08, and the price of the yogurt cups is a regular price, not a weekly sale price, I have actually purchased a packet of 20 of these coupons on eBay for $1 (plus $1 shipping). I figure that 2 bucks for $10 worth of yogurt is a pretty good deal, not to mention the overage I can get if I buy them from Kroger. I must admit, I'm a little excited... ;-)

Have you ever purchased coupons for a deal before? Did you think it was worth it? Leave a comment, I'd like to hear your experiences!


  1. I have purchased coupons for the Ronzoni Smart Taste Pasta. Lately it has been going on sale 3/$5 and the coupons are $1/1. This yields me pasta for 67 cents or cheaper if I go to walmart where they are normally 1.50. I bought 20 of them on ebay recently that I just need to use up by the end of November which won't be a problem.
    Question for you on the doubled coupons. If a store doubles coupons, do you have to ask them to do it? I am really confused about this. I have Fred Meyer, QFC (Kroger), Albertsons, and Safeway near me.

  2. Keevy Family- whenever I have presented my coupons for $0.50 or less at Kroger, they have been doubled automatically. If you are unsure how your local store does it, you can always ask the cashier at checkout.

    The pasta sounds like a good deal- if this yogurt thing works out, I am going to start keeping my eye open for more deals like this where I can purchase coupons and do the same deal over and over.

    Thanks for your comment!


Comments make me happy. Nice to know I'm not just sitting here talking to myself. So, thank you!
