Tops deals ~ week of 3/4/2012

Agh Tops – I do not even know what to say about the week in front of us…  What happened to our gas point deals?  Sure wish I was shopping like my new friend Ida – “Hi Ida , get better soon!” – She got almost two full tanks of gas for FREE so far this cycle – YOU GO GIRL!!

 Anyhow – we gotta make do and some of us NEED some food so looking forward, here are some good deals and what I plan on doing this week:  

  •  50% off deals – maybe the chicken and the bread are good SALE prices but as far as any of the items really being 50% off, I just don’t see it.  This Week’s 50% off Deals are:

 Fresh Homestyle Roasting Chicken – $0.79/lb
Peaches, Plums, or Nectarines – $1.49/lb
Bakery Fresh Italian Bread – $0.99
Campbell’s Chunky Soup – $1.25
Coca-Cola 6 Pack Bottles – $2.19
Wise Potato Chips – $1.99
All Natural Keta Salmon Fillet – 50% off
TopCare Pain Relief – 50% off


  •  Here we go again with a “meal deal”…  Normally I say RUN – but this time although the roasts are marked up, way up – I totally use and need the free items that come with the purchase and when you calculate it out; paying a little extra for the roast is still cheaper than paying for all of the other items.

Chuck Roast Meal Deal – Buy One 3lb. or more “Fresh Boneless Chuck Roast”, Get the following 6 items free:

3 lb bag Gourmet Russet Potatoes

1 lb bag Cooking Carrots

Stroehmann Brown n’ Serve Dinner Rolls

  • Another big deal is the “P&G Catalina” Offered:  Receive a $5 Catalina coupon when you purchase $25 worth of participating products OR receive a $10 Catalina coupon when you purchase $40 worth of participating products.  There are tons of items on the list, but I am going to try to make the Regenerist Deal work using the lower cost facial wipes… I’ll let you know how it works out….

  1. Does Tops have gas points monthly? I have only been watching the ads since you had that class at the YWCA. I noticed this weeks ad didnt have any savings on gas.

  2. Hey there my friend!
    I plan on getting Olay Body Wash, Inexpensive Yocrunch Greek Parfait, Jelly, Kraft Fresh Take and I am going to look at the meal deal. I am curious how much they have marked it up!

  3. Robin – it is hit or miss with the gas point bonus… BUT remember you earn 1 point for every coupon used so at least you can still get some points…
    Wendy – I think the meat is marked up about $1.50ish /lb (for my deal price) and I give a very conservative valu of $8 to other items in meal deal so I figure as long as I stay under 6#’s I am actually getting a deal… I would love to hear what you think!!

  4. You made me LOL with you comment on CD&M thanks for the well wishes, I should be out and about by tomorrow if not tonight. I am getting a little antsy, I haven’t shopped since last Thurs :omgface: I’ve been playing angry birds on the wonderful pistachio fb page…… I am getting so angry at those angry birds! It isn’t a total waste of time,at least that is what I am telling myself, Wonderful Pistachio is having a contest for those who play.

    Have you heard about the tasters choice single serve packs that are $1 buy 4 get a mf coupon for $1/3 off and a $3 cat, That you can roll buy 4 use the $1/3 mf, use $3cat pay $0 get $1/3 +$3cat. I know there are also coupons .65/1 on the tc site.

  5. Thanks Ida – I am gonna try the TC tomorrow when I go – if my “po-dunk” store has them!!

    I hope you are at least earning pistachio coupons – LOL – angry!!!!! 🙂

  6. GRRR – No Olay and no Tasters Choice at my store – agh the joys of small town living!!!
