5 Reasons to Visit Giant This Week, 07/03-07/09

It's Dollar Doubler time at Giant this coming week! There are 4 dollar doubler coupons in your Giant ad (though probably not included with the ads in-store, so hang on to your mailed ads!). These coupons, when coupled with a $1-valued ("starts-with-a-5"/doublable manufacturer coupon), will get you an extra $1 off. Your total must be above $15 for the Giant system to accept your doubler coupons. Some potential freebies here, so have a gander at the matchups.

Here are 5 little inspirations for getting yourself to Giant this week:

  1. 4-day sale. These deals continue from this past week:

    Half-price $4.99 Porterhouse of T-Bone Steak, the 60% off $1.99/lb. pork chops, or the $0.99/lb. chicken drumsticks or thighs. The $5/$15 coupon will have expired by today, 07/02, though, so consider getting to Giant before Thursday's out to get the additional discount on the meats.

    Sweet White Corn, 12 for $1.99. Roast it in-husk for a quick, tasty version!

    $3.88 watermelons, the cheapest watermelon price at Giant so far this year.

    $2.20 for 12-packs of Coke products. You must by 5 ($11 total) to get this price.

    Deer Park 24-packs are $3.88 (though Sam's Club has 30 packs of Nestle water for less than this, so it's not a "deal" deal).

    Get these deals before the last day, July 6.

  2. Tribe Hummus is 5/$10 ($2/each). Use the printable coupons (use brand menu to scroll for Tribe and Tribe Organic) for $0.55/any or $0.75/organic (these should each double automatically). Lowest possible price: $0.50/each.

  3. Hot Pockets (all varieties, it seems) are 5/$10. Use the $1/1 Panini coupon (values vary regionally) from the 04/26 SS, and dollar double it, to get them for FREE! (Anything less than $1 will double automatically.) 05/17 SS had a $0.50/1 Lean Pockets coupon that will make them $1/each.

  4. Kashi GoLean Cereal (original or Crunch!) is 2/$5. Use the printable $1.50/1 coupon here to make it just $1/box – very cheap for this.

  5. Kettle Chips are 2/$5. Sign up here (use your junk email address) to get a $1/1 coupon, which dollar doubled, would make them $0.50/bag!

Here are other Giant coupon matchups (including dollar doubler matchups) and deals that we spotted for the coming week of 07/03-07/09.

The ongoing discount certificates offer. Get up to 20% off a future shopping order! Between June 26 and July 30, every $1 you spend at Giant with your BonusCard will translate to 1 Extra Rewards point earned. Go to to activate your rewards. You can elect to "cash in" your points at any time at this link - cashing in 250 of your points will result in a 5% savings certificate printed out during your next cheeckout, good for a future transaction. 450 points = 10%, 600 points = 15%, and 800 points = 20% savings certificate.

  • Pork Spareribs, $1.99/lb. (save at least $2/lb.)

  • Split Chicken Breast, $0.99/lb. (save at least $2/lb.)

  • Northwest Cherries, $1.57/lb. (save at least $2.42/lb.) I have a feeling I'm going to be eating a lot of these in the coming week. J

  • Breyers Ice Cream, 2/$5, but there might be a $1/2 coupon in the 05/17 RP (though this coupon could be regional). If you have it, and dollar double it, it will make the ice cream $1.50/each.

  • Buy any two Lay's or Tostitos Bags (excludes Baked, Light, Organic, Kettle, and Fmaily Size) and get a 24 oz. jar of Tostitos FREE. If you have the $1/2 Lay's potato chips coupon from the July edition of All You magazine, you can dollar double it with this deal. The chips typically run around $4/bag, so you'd get two bags of potato chips and some salsa for about $6. There was also a coupon for $1 off Frito Lay Snacks, any variety, 9 oz. or larger, AND a Frito Lay Dip, any variety 9.5 oz. or larger jar, in the 06/28 SS – though I'm not sure if the salsa you'd buy for the Giant offer counts as a dip. Anybody want to post feedback on that?

  • Bounty, 15 pack, $11.99. Use the $0.50/1 from the 06/21 SS (doubles automatically) to get it for $10.99.

  • Tide 2X detergent, $11.99, but $11.29 after $0.35/1 coupon from the 06/07 P&G.

  • Pampers Jumbo Packs of Swaddlers or Cruisers are $8.99. Use the $1/1 coupon from the 06/07 P&G, and dollar double it, to get them for $6.99, a range of $0.19-$0.30 each, depending on the size you're buying. Not too shabby – and they count toward your BonusCard Extra Rewards before July 30! If you have a friend with a baby shower coming up, Swaddlers are a great gift – and at $6.99/each, a couple of packs is still under $15! I tend to buy the size 2 Swaddlers for showers so that if the baby is big or grows fast, the diapers will all be used (also to avoid too many newborn sizes since other folks give diapers too).

  • Perdue Perfect Portions Boneless Chicken Breasts, $7.99. Use the $0.75/1 coupon from the 05/17 RP (doubles automatically) to get it for $6.49, but remember that this is still $4.32/lb. (!).

  • Buitoni Filled Pasta, all varieties, $6.99 for 20 oz. packages. The 06/21 SS had a coupon for $1/any Buitoni pastas or sauces, and there is probably a printable $1/one available here. Dollar double them to get the big packages for $4.99 each.

  • Newman's Own Thin'n'Crispy Pizza is 2/$10. Use the printable $1/1 coupon (05/31 RP), and dollar double it, to make the pizzas just $3/each. Printable $1/1 available here.

  • Starbucks Ice Cream, 2/$6. Use the $1/1 printable from or the $1/1 from the 06/21 SS – dollar double it – to get the ice cream for $1 each! Sweeeeet.

  • Ben & Jerry's ice cream is 2/$6. There was a $1/2 coupon on for Ben & Jerry's which would make it $2 each.

  • Lean Cuisine Entrees or Stouffers Entrees are 4/$10. Use the $1/4 coupon from the 05/03 SS; dollar doubled it will make the Lean Cuisines $2 each. OR use the Buy 2, get 1 free from the July issue of All You magazine to get three for $5 ($1.66 each). I'm not sure if the terms of the All You coupon excludes the use of the $1/4 coupon in combination.

  • Tyson Any'tizers, boxed, 2/$6. Use the $0.55/1 from the 05/10 SS to make them $1.90/bag.

  • Barber Foods Chicken Entrees are $3.99. Go to and get a printable $1/1 coupon (use the brand menu to scroll for Barber), and dollar double it, to get the entrees for $1.99.

  • Reddi-Wip is 2/$5, and the $0.50/1 coupon from the 06/21 SS will double automatically, making it $1.50/each.

  • Pirate's Booty snacks are 2/$5. Use the $1/2 coupon from the 06/07 SS (for tings or puffs), and dollar double it, to get them for $1.50/bag.

  • Planters Dry Roasted or Cocktail Peanuts are $1.99. If you printed the $1/1 from that was available in June, you could possibly get these FREE! The $1/2 coupon from the 06/28 SS makes these $1 each.

  • Jack Link's Beef Jerky is 2/$10. There was a BOGO coupon in the July issue of All You magazine, making them $2.50/each.

  • Bush's Baked Beans are 3/$5. There is a printable coupon available from this car racing site (but weirdly, not its source site, for $1/2 Bush's baked beans, which, if dollar doubled, would make them $0.66/each.

  • Zatarain's Rice is 3/$5. If you use the $0.75/2 coupon from the 06/07 RP (doubles automatically), you can get them for $0.91/box.
  • Wishbone dressings are 2/$5. Use the coupons from the 06/28 RP (values go as high as $1 regionally) to get them for as low as $0.50/each. There is also a $0.75/1 printable available here which should double automatically, making the dressings $1/each.

  • Dole Fruit Bowls 4-Packs are 2/$4. The 04/26 SS had coupons for these – looks like the best one might be $2/2 (versus doubling the $1/3 coupon), which would bring the price as low as $1 each.

  • Newman's Own Salsa is 2/$5. Use the $0.50/1 coupons (double automatically to $1 off) from the 05/31 RP, or print a $1/2 (same value as $0.50 coupons if you dollar double it).

Are the doubler coupons available if you buy the paper today? Or can you only get one in the mailing to the households? I don't think I get a household mailing unfortunately.

We don't know; we get ours via delivered paper. If you buy it today and get the doubler coupons, please let us know (and also know which paper you bought). :)
