Catalinas at Hilander

Here are two good deals at Hilander with Catalinas:

**Kraft Salad Dressing - $1.50
Use .55 off 1 printable coupon here in IE or here in Safari
$.95 if your Hilander doesn't double internet coupons or $.40 if your Hilander doubles (like they should) THEN:
Buy 2 get $1 Catalina
Buy 3 get $2 Catalina
Buy 4 get $3 Catalina
(FYI - a Catalina is a dollar off coupon good on your next purchase)
So, if you printed 2 coupons and the coupons doubled you would pay $.80 and get $1 back!
The Catalina is good through 6/27 - I am sure during that time the price of the dressing will fluctuate.

**Nestle PureLife Water - $3.33 for a case of 24
Use $1 off 2 printable coupons here THEN:
Buy 2 get $2
Buy 3 get $3
Buy 4 get $5 - BEST DEAL!
So, if you print 2 coupons and get 4 cases of water you will pay $1.58 after coupons and catalina for a case of water!!
I am not one to purchase water - I am a big user of water bottles; however, when it comes to summer and all the activities we do it is nice to have a cooler full of CHEAP water rather than pay $2 for one bottle of water at the zoo or amusement park!
This catalina deal runs through 6/2.

**Oscar Mayer hot dogs - 2/$3
Use $1 off 2 printable here
$1 a package

**Airwick Airfreshener Spray - $2.20
Use $1 off blinkie coupons right by the sprays AND
Use BOGO coupon from the recent newspaper insert
Pay $1.20 total for 2

Got a painting project?

Do you have a room you want to paint? Glidden has a Memorial Day rebate for their paints that you can find here. This rebate is only good for paint purchased at Home Depot between May 27-31. (The funny thing is that the rebate is a Home Depot one and also includes Behr and Flood paints! So pick your paint)

Glidden is also having a "Get Color, Give Color" giveaway from June 1st to June 7th (or while supplies last). They will give 2 paint testers to those who sign up and give you the opportunity to give 2 to your friends! So put it in your calendars to go to their website on June 1st to sign up for 2 free paint testers!

Gluten free coupon

Have been having problems printing coupons lately, and not sure how else this affects everything (as far as our blog) - so instead of posting a link to the coupon, I'm posting a link to MoneySavingMom's post for $1/1 Gluten Free products.

I know gluten free life can get expensive, so a little help is nice! I was on a gluten free diet for about 2 months and wished there were coupons. So even though I'm now off the diet, I'm on the lookout for those of you who could use a few gluten free coupons!


(edit - I just clicked on MSM's link on her blog and it takes you to coupons.com. But the cool thing is that all the coupons are for either organic and/or gluten free stuff)

Great reader tip!

Thanks to Karalin for her great tip of a "hidden" deal at Hilander this week! Earlier on Monday she wrote:

"I found a great deal by accident! Hilander has several Kellogg's cereals on sale for $1.97. I've found Froot Loops, Apple Jacks, Raisin Bran, Rice Krispies, and Frosted Flakes. Now, that is already a decent price, but when you buy 3 or more, a catalina will print out too! The catalina says, "Buy any Kellogg's cereals, 8 oz. or larger between 5/1 and 5/14. Buy 3 and get $2.00, buy 4 and get $3, or buy 5 and get $4 coupon off your next shopping order. I have not yet tried to roll the deal, but I'm hoping to try tonight, so I can report back if it works or not."

She did try the deal, and wrote us later saying:

"Hello! I found out tonight that the Kellogg's deal at Hilander DOES roll! So, you can use the catalina that prints to do the deal again, and you'll still get another coupon. This is a GREAT deal! Tonight, I bought 5 boxes of cereal at $1.97 a piece ($9.85), paid with a $4 catalina ($5.85) and walked out with another $4 catalina! This deal works until the 14th, although I don't know if they will have the cereal on sale for that long."

Thanks Karalin for the tip!

Let us know if this deal worked for you too!
