Free Post Cereal at Jewel

OK, so I was holding out on the Dominick's cereal deal even though it's pretty cheap with the National Catalina deal on Post Cereal. Let's just say I'm glad I did because I like FREE cereal! Here's the deal. Starting Thursday at Jewel, Honey Bunches of Oats and Fruity Pebbles are on sale for $1.59 each. When you buy 5, you get $4 back. If you've registered your card here, you'll get $2 back when you buy 2 (you can get only one per transaction). Combine this with coupons, and you have one awesome deal! But even if you don't have coupons that's only $2 for 5 boxes of cereal!

Buy 5 boxes @ $1.59 each = $7.95
- $2 (Use 2 $1/2 coupons from 2/28S or 3/14S)
- $2 (Catalina from
- $4 (Catalina for buying 5 Post Cereals)
= FREE!!

Brookhaven Dec. 26-Jan. 5

Some great deals at Brookhaven are coming up December 26-January 5. The main attraction that draws me to Brookhaven is their high-quality, low-priced produce. They have three stores in Illinois: Mokena, Darien, and Burr Ridge. I usually go to the Darien store, but word has it that the Burr Ridge store has excellent produce selections, including a wide variety of organics. Here are my personal favorites for this 11-day sale:
