Jewel Ad 4/16-4/22

For those of you who haven't yet heard, as of May 1, Jewel will no longer accept expired coupons. The negative side of this is that you can't use all your expired coupons on the great catalina deals. The positive side is that you can purge your coupon collection if you've been stockpiling the expireds just in case they might match up with a catalina promotion!

Anyway, here are a couple deals to pick up if you run into Jewel this week.

* My personal experience with these: If you have a good technician, the refills turn out great! I decided to try these refills for a few reasons:
  1. Cartridge refills are so expensive when you buy the name brand or even store brand
  2. Because of all the coupon printing I do, I just want a way to print cheaply.
  3. The cost of printers are very low when you consider that two cartridges are included (sometimes they are starter cartridges without the high print yield, but still a good deal). This point is important to me because if the refills would do any damage to my printer, it wouldn't cost me that much more to buy a new printer with cartridges included!
  4. By the way, did you know that you can set your printer to default print in black & white? This should save you some color ink. (Go to control panel, printer setup to change the default settings.)
  5. All in all, I'm pretty satisfied with Walgreens refills and think it's definitely worth it, especially when they have the deals like this week's or last week's or even B1G1 free!
