Click here to view an on-line version of this week’s ad. Click here for information about MARTIN’S coupon policy. The ad and the coupon policy are for the Richmond, VA area. There is the possibility of some variances in other areas.

Here are what I consider to be the top deals this week at MARTIN’S. I verify the coupons that I mention with what I receive in my local paper, the Richmond Times-Dispatch (RTD). Coupons are regional so you may not have the exact same coupon or the same face value. Remember what I consider to be a good deal and what you consider to be a good deal may differ. Please feel free to leave me a comment or send me a tweet @AnnsCouponWorld with any deals that you find.

Meat:

I happened to come across an article about how some grocery stores, including Ahold (the parent company for GIANT & MARTIN’S),  processes the ground beef that they sell.  I personally don’t know that I will be able to buy the GIANT Brand ground beef again after I read this, especially since other grocery stores offer meat “Pink Slime Free”.  Here is a link to the article if you are interested.

Coffee-Mate Natural Bliss coffee creamer was on sale at $1.89 at my store, and I had a RP coupon for .55, making my OOP $0.79.

Just a heads up on the Clorox Fuel Perks... I bought
4 Clorox CleanUp and 1 Clorox bleach, got the Fuel Perks, and also received a $2.50 Catalina from Clorox at check-out. Sweet! Not sure if it works on other Clorox products or not, but this scenario worked for me twice yesterday.

I did the Clorox catalina with 10 tubes of the wipes and used 4 $1 off two coupons and received two $2.50 catalinas (plus .40 in fuel perks)...it was a great week for catalinas...ended up with $17 worth.

Does anyone know if Laura's Lean Beef uses pink slime? I can't imagine they do but I want to be sure. That's generally the ground beef I buy from Martin's - not the Giant brand. I try not to buy any of their meats actually, esp. deli meat. I made that mistake only once. It's awful! LOL

Kristen said...

Suzy - I only glanced through the article, but I'm pretty sure Laura's was listed as one of their alternatives that doesn't have the "pink slime".

Thanks Lissa & Stacey for the info on bonus Catalina with the Clorox products. I ran into Martin's this morning to grab some things and also grabbed the wipes - I only got 5 and had already used my $1/2 coupons so I paid $10 for the wipes, earned a $2.50 Catalina, and earned $4 in gas after I max out the $0.20/gallon -$3.50 for 5 containers of wipes sounds like a great deal to me. :)

SuzyQpon - I walked by the meat dept while I wax there also and the Laura's Lean Ground Beef is under the Nature's Promise label so it is "pink slime" free. I found some packages of that marked down so I rolled my Catalinas from the frozen food deal and the clorox deal into the ground beef.

I have actually had so much trouble finding lean ground beef that I have been more successful finding lean cuts on markdown and grinding it myself with my KitchenAid meat grinding attachment.

Sorry for the typos in the above comment. I am responding from my phone while we are on the road. ;)
