Grocery Deals -- 7/30-8/5 JEWEL-OSCO/SHAW'S

Jewel-Osco's grocery deals flyer this week is hella thick. Let's dive in! The highlight, for me, is the chance to get 10 boxes of Pop-Tarts free after the Fuel for School rebate, or make money on them if you have coupons.
24-pack Crush, Pepsi or Mountain Dew $3.77 each when you buy 2, limit 2 (that's $1.89/12-pack, a steal in my book)
StarKist Chunk Light tuna, 5 oz., 50 cents limit 2
Arm & Hammer detergent 55-68.75 oz., $2.50, limit 2 (the non-OxiClean variety is 35-44 loads, a slightly better deal than CVS's ExtraBucks offer, which is the same price after ECBs but only says 32 loads), limit 2
Jewel cereal 11-18 oz. 99 cents, limit 4
Nabisco Chips Ahoy $1.88 (a dime better than Dominick's price), limit 2
Lay's potato chips 10-11 oz. $1.88, limit 2
California red seedless grapes 77 cents/lb. (this is awesome because DOMESTIC grapes can safely be purchased non-organic according to Environmental Working Group)
Northwest cherries $1.99/lb.
Driscoll's strawberries $2.50/lb.
Nature Sweet cherry tomatoes $2.50/12 oz. (use $1/2 from 2/22 or 3/1 SmartSource to get for $2 each)
Healthy Choice dinners $1.99
Kellogg's cereal and Nutri-Grain bars $1.67 when you buy 5 (Buy 10 to get $10 rebate from Kellogg's Fuel for School promo, making the 67 cents each)
Kellogg's Pop-Tarts 8-count $1 when you buy 5 (buy 10 to get $10 rebate from Fuel for School, making them free!; use $1/2 or .55/1 from the 6/7 RedPlum to make this a moneymaker)
Eggo waffles $1.99 (again, Fuel for School)
Cottonelle toilet paper 6 double rolls $3.33
Edy's ice cream 1.5 quart $2.88
Jewel milk $1.99/gallon
Jewel cheese chunk or shred 8 oz. $2
organic peaches $2.99/1 lb. package
Oberweis lemonade, punch or tea 64 oz. bogo @ $2.69 (not only is this a good price for yummy lemonade, but I love having to return the bottles because it's an excuse to walk to the local Oberweis ice cream parlor. Mind you, they take them back at the store, but the store don't have no sundaes.)
Jewel butter $1.99/lb. (finally!)
Jewel yogurt 6-oz. cups 44 cents
Jewel beef or italian meatballs, $3.99/16 oz.
Jewel fruit cups 4-pack $1.89

General Mills cereal $2.50, get coupon for free milk if you buy 4 (use $1/2 from August All You for Golden Grahams or Lucky Charms, or $1/2 from 7/19 SmartSource for just about any variety)
Ball Park meat or turkey franks $1.67 (use $1/2 from 7/26 RedPlum to get them for $1.17 each)
Soyjoy bars 70 cents (use $1/5 printable or $2/10 from 5/31 SmartSource EXPIRES FRIDAY)

  • Buy $20 worth, save $5 on any meat item at checkout
Participating items are Doritos, bogo @ $3.99, Pepsi or Mtn Dew 2 Listers $1, Dole juice 64 oz. $2.50, Cap'n Crunch $3, Quaker granola bars $2.50, and a few others. Seems to be good on any meat purchase. In the past, when I did a deal like this for an Easter ham, you didn't actually have to buy the meat to get the instant savings taken off your bill.

  • The "Buy 4, Save $4 off your next order" deal is back for Edy's and Nestle ice cream products. Fruit bars are $3 for 6-12 count or $3.99 for a 24-pack of snack-sized bars, a carton of ice cream is $2.88, Dibs are $3.99 for 10 snack packs, and Skinny Cow is $3.99 for a 4-12 pack. Haagen-Dazs pints or bars are $3. Coupons to use: $1/1 or $1/2 Dibbs or Fruit Bars from 6/14 SmartSource, $1/1 Lil Drumsticks printable, $1/1 Lil Drumsticks from 6/14 SmartSource, $1/1 Lil Drumsticks from June Parents or Family Fun magazines)

Deal idea: four packs Lil Drums $16, use four $1/1 Qs, get $4 savings = $8, or $2/box

Deal idea: four cartons Edy's ice cream for $11.60 - $4 savings = $7.60, or $1.88/carton

There are also two Osco Catalinas:

  • For beauty products including Caress body wash, Dove shampoo, Dove styling products, Dove deodorant, Dove soap, Q-tips, Vaseline lotion, Suave deodorant or Suave shampoo/conditioner, you get a $3 coupon for next order when you buy $10 worth, a $7 coupon if you spend $20, or a $12 coupon if you spend $30. Note that Osco deals generally go by the CARD PRICE not the pre-card price. Coupons for this deal: Whole sheets of Dove coupons in 5/17 and 6/7 RedPlums; $1/2 Suave deo 5/17 RedPlum, Q-Tips $1/2 or .30/1 5/17 RedPlum, Vaseline lotion $1/1 printable. Mashup Mom has more coupon matchups for this deal, too.

Deal idea: Buy 6 Vaseline lotions (6-24 oz.) for $30. Use 6 printable $1/1 (need more than one computer to print). Pay $24, get $12 coupon back = $12/6 lotions or $2 each.

  • Spend $15 on Johnson & Johnson, get $5 coupon for next trip. I'm actually not sure which products are included since there is a whole page of Osco products there and only a few of them at the bottom are Johnson's. Is Neutrogena and Tylenol. Johnson's? If so then there are a lot of products included.
