I had a good day at Target today. A very good day. I will share a post soon with all the details, but first I wanted to let you know what I discovered re. kosher frozen food items and the $5 gift card (originally posted about here).
Hopefully some of you also have that promotion running in your community and will be able to take advantage of it!
- Every item in the freezer section should be included, as per the sign, which says “Buy any 7 frozen items and get a $5 gift card”. My gift card prompted every time the cashier swiped the 7th frozen item, without any problems. Your mileage may vary a little bit, and you may even have to escalate to customer service, as I’m hearing about a few people getting a hard time.
- The gift card deal is rolling, which means you can buy 7 items in one transaction, get a gift card; then do a second transaction, using your gift card from the first transaction to pay for it. You then get a second gift card, which you can use to pay for your next transaction, and so on. Additionally, you can get 14, 21 or more items in one transaction, and the register should prompt for the right number of gift cards. I did two transactions with 14 frozen items each, and got 2 gift cards per transaction.
- Market Pantry frozen veggies do not have a hechsher on them, nor do the frozen fruits (I was certain I had seen one on them before, but this time, I checked every package and didn’t find it.)
- Bird’s Eye Steamers were the only hechshered frozen veggies I found, and they are Triangle-K. They are on sale for $1.02 each. Don’t forget about the $1/3 coupon from the 1/23 Smart Source insert. My store was running low on corn, but they still had plenty green beans and peas – if your family likes those.
- The individual serving size of Haagen-Daaz, Ben & Jerry’s, Skinny Cow, and Edy’s are all included. At my store, they were $.99 – $1.02 each, not on sale. With the gift card, that works out to be $.30 each.
- My store had mini Mrs. T’s Perogies (OU-D) for $2.79 each. There is a $1/1 coupon in the March 2011 All You or a $1/3 coupon in the 1/30/2011 Red Plum. There was also recently a $1/2 coupon printable, which I had in my coupon file — so check yours before heading out.
- My store also had ample supply of Rhodes Dough dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls. The prices ranged from $2.79 – $3.69 per package. There are numerous $1/1 coupons available (here). I’m planning to clip/print some and head back out later this week.
- Eggo’s Waffles are on sale for $2.09 for a box of 10 waffles (homestyle, buttermilk and chocolate chip varieties only). Although there are no coupons in the Database right now, I did find $1/2 peelies at my local Walmart last week – so keep an eye out for them.
- Morningstar is not on price cut, unfortunately. The full-price at my store is $3.49, so even with the $5 promotion, it’s still quite expensive. If you happen to have any of the $1/1 printables in your coupon stash (no longer available), you can get a good deal.
Other kosher items like Kashi frozen waffles and regular sized Edy’s ice cream were not on sale — so even with the gift card promotion, it doesn’t pay to buy them now.
Stay tuned for pictures and details from my shopping trips today. I hit up three stores, which is really unusual for me – but I managed to score a lot of great freebies!
Is your store included in the Target promotion? What are you planning to stock up on this week?!
