5 Reasons to Visit Giant (aka Stop and Shop) This Week, 06/19-06/25

Giant is really delivering on the Father's Day deals this week. Here are some hot incentives:
  1. Cheap Grillin':
    Boneless Chicken Breast, usually $3.29/lb., just $1.69/lb. This is rock-bottom stockup price in the first place, peeps! If you use the $5 off $15 meat purchase coupon (whose terms do not require a BonusCard), your lowest possible price could be $15 retail worth of chicken (~4.6 lbs.) for $2.71.

    Petite Sirloin Steak, usually $5.99/lb., this week $3.99/lb. If you can find a 2.5 lb. package, you could get as low as $15 retail of steak for $4.99.

    Fresh Pork Tenderloin is $2.99 (save $3/lb.!). If you find a 5 lb. package, you can get as low as $15 retail pork for $2.48.
  2. Cheap blueberries! 4 pints (~48 oz. or 3 lbs.) goes for $5 ($1.25 each). I just bought 3 lbs. of blueberries for around $7 at Sam's Club, so this is a real deal. Make some blueberry banana bread!
  3. Watermelon on sale for $3.99 (save $2 each). Sign me up!
  4. Pepsi 12 packs or 6 packs, 4/$12, or $2.40 each.
  5. BOGOs and freebies:

    Oscar Mayer Beef Franks are BOGO. Pretty sure you can use the free Oscar Mayer Beef Franks coupon (it was a by-request-on-web coupon mailed to your homes) to get TWO packages for FREE!

    Sobe Lifewater
    is BOGO. Use this BOGO printable coupon to get two for free (or print two coupons, get four for free!).

    Dole Fruit Bowls
    4 packs (all varieties) are BOGO. The 04/26 SS had coupons for these fruit bowls, though values varied regionally.

    Banana Boat Suncare or Hawaiian Tropic Suncare are BOGO
    . The 05/03 SS had a $1/1 coupon for both BB and HT, and you can also register here for a $2/1 Banana Boat printable coupon and here for a $2/1 Hawaiian Tropic printable coupon. These run $10-$15. If the print limit on the $2 coupons is 2 per Windows-run computer, you can get 2 BB or 2 HT products for around $6, which makes them ~$3 each - a 70%ish discount on sunscreen!

    Sabra Hummus is BOGO
    . If this $1.50/1 printable coupon is still good, you can get two for very, very cheap.

    Chi-Chi's salsa is BOGO
    . There were coupons in the 05/17 SS for $0.55 (doubles to $1.10) or $1 off that could make this cheap indeed.

    Rubbermaid Easy Find Lid
    containers are Buy 2, Get 1 Free. Use three of the $1 coupons from the 05/03 and 06/07 SS inserts to get them for cheaper.

    Finish Detergent Tabs are BOGO
    . Use two of the the $0.75/1 coupon (doubles to $1.50) from the 06/07 SS to get $3 total off the cost of one.

Other Giant coupon matchups that we spotted in the ad for the week of 06/19-06/25:

  • Tropicana Pure Premium $1.99 (save at least $1.76 each). Send a Father's Day greeting and you and the recipient will both get a printable coupon for $1 off Tropicana Pure Premium, making the OJ just $0.99! The 05/03 RP also had a $1/2 coupon for Tropicana Juices 59 oz. or larger, makinng it $1.49 each.
  • Kellogg's Corn Pops, Corn Flakes, Rice Krispies, Apple Jacks, or Froot Loops are BOGO. The 06/07 RP had a coupon good for $1 off Frosted Flakes, Froot Loops, Cocoa Krispies, Corn Pops or Apple Jacks Cereal. Use two coupons since you're buying two. Estimated cost for two after coupons, $1.49 or ~$0.75 each.
  • Buy $15 of Giant brand products on the flap, get a $3 Catalina good for for your next purchase at Giant. Graham crackers, microwave popcorn, toilet paper, paper towels, cheese, applesauce, paper plates, and sandwich bags are all listed. As an example, Giant cheese blocks are 2/$5. Buy 6 to get them for a net of $12, or $2 each.
  • Yoplait Yoghurt cups are 20/$10. There was a $0.40/6 coupon (doubles automatically) from either the 05/31 or 06/07 SS will get you 6 for $2.20, or ~$0.37 each. There is a $0.45/6 coupon printable from coupons.com that will get you the cups for $0.35 each.
  • Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce is $1.66 (this normally retails $2-$2.50 per bottle). The $1 coupon from the 05/10 SS will make it $0.66/bottle. Nice! Note: this wasn't in my 05/10 SS but was still listed in AFullCup's coupon database. Maybe a regional one...?

I tried to use the $3/$15 coupon when pork chops were on sale, and they wouldn't let me use it because the sale brought it down below $15. Were you able to use it on the regular price? You need the BonusCard to get the $1.69/lb price.

And--it's $1.79/lb down here in VA. What for?

Just wondering how many times we can use the $5/15 coupon. I know only once per transaction but could I do two seperate transactions?

Gina, my purchase was calculated off the BonusCard price, so even though the coupon doesn't state it requires a BonusCard it seems that the total will be calculated using the BC price.

Mich, we don't know the answer but suspect you may be able to do 2 separate transactions, especially if you use a Self-Check line. Let us know if you find out before we try it.

Last month I was able to scan the meat at regular price $15, then scan the $3 off $15 meat coupon, and LASTLY scan my bonus card to maximize my meat savings.

However, during my trip to Giant today that same process did not work. I tried scanning in $15 worth of meat (at regular price), then scan my $5 off $15 meat coupon but it came up as "not accepted". A Giant worker came over and told me that that coupon can only be used with a bonus card. I told her that I didn't see that in writing anywhere and asked if that meant that someone without a bonus card couldn't use the coupon. She said that was right...

So I complied and added more meat to my purchase to push it to a little over $15 at the discounted sales price (bonus card was scanned by this point), and then I tried to scan the $5/$15 coupon and it still didn't work.
Another worker came over and had to punch it in manually as a $5 manufacturer coupon in order to deduct $5 from my total.

Perhaps Giant wised up and made these IP meat coupons not scan anymore so that an actual worker/cashier has to look at it and approve it (and enforce that it is being used only with a $15+ meat purchase at the discounted sales price).

It put a bit of a damper on my shopping trip because I was expected some more substantial savings, but I can't complain too much because their meat sale price was already pretty good. I just was hoping it was going to work like it did earlier this month, but it didn't.

Did anyone else have trouble with their meat coupon scanning at the self check outs?

Thanks,
Laura

We've added some notes on the with/without before/after Bonuscard experiences in our original post featuring the link to the Giant $5/$15 coupon. Mich - we believe the coupon is usable in any number of transactions, once per transaction, as long as the terms are met. Many thanks to you all for posting about your experiences on this deal!
