Tops ~ week of 2/26/12

Oh Tops – Hmmm, can we turn this into an awesome shopping week?  First and always foremost, let’s look at the BONUS GAS POINT DEAL and be sure to check out the INSTANT SAVINGS deals too!  There really are lots of great deals this week, plus my few favorites listed at the bottom.  Thinking I will earn lots of gas points this week just from coupon usage alone.  How about you??

  •  EARN 200 Gas Points for every 6 participating products purchased:

 Gorton’s Frozen Fish @ 50% Off ($4.59-$7.99)

 Deal Ideas:
Depending on the price of the fish, I will probably buy 6 of those…  If I have the Pierogies q, I will stock up on those at only $1.50/bag also.  Both options are probably equating to about $9 out of pocket but earning $6 worth of gas so really $3 for 6 items is a killer deal!  Garlic Bread, Nuggets, Patties and Ice Cream;  will definitely do a few combo’s of these deals… Just remember for every 6 you buy, you earn $6 in FREE gas… WIN-WIN!  This is for sure the week to stock up!!
