Two coupon inserts in Sunday's N&O

                                        

Look for two coupon inserts -- one Smart Source and one Red Plum -- in this Sunday's home-delivered Final Edition of The News & Observer.

Also, be on the look out for two manufacturer coupons in this Sunday's WalMart circular.

All together, there will be a grand total of 100 coupons with a face value of about $132 -- and that's before every-day double coupons, which we're fortunate to have at Kroger, Harris Teeter and Lowes Foods. And of course, that's also before Super Double coupons at Lowes Foods this week and possibly at Harris Teeter next week.

As always, I'll have the coupon database updated and the best Sunday deals posted early Sunday morning, about the same time your paper hits the driveway.

Please note: Single-copy and State Edition papers may not contain all coupon inserts.
 

WalMart offers deal on Kindle Fire

WalMart is offering the Amazon Kindle Fire tablet this week with a gift card incentive that essentially shaves $50 off the price.

On the front page of today's WalMart circular, the full-color 7-inch tablet is advertised at the regular price of $199, but it's bundled with a $50 WalMart gift card.

One of the hottest gifts of the 2011 holiday season, the Kindle Fire still sells for $199 on Amazon.com and other major retailers.

I'm wondering just how many Kindle Fires each WalMart store will have in stock. If you're interested, I wouldn't procrastinate.

Sunday deals are up (Feb. 5-11)

You can pick up FREE cough syrup at CVS, FREE Stayfree pads at Rite Aid and FREE Valentine's candy and aspirin at Walgreens. But the best bargains of the week are on basics: milk and eggs.

Pick up milk for $2.88 per gallon at Kroger and a dozen eggs for 99 cents at Walgreens. And if either store happens to be out of stock, be sure to get rain checks. And remember, WalMart and Target will price match.

Read on for all the best deals this week at CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Kerr Drug and Kroger. These are the deals that stood out to me so please jump in and leave a comment if you spotted a bargain. That way, we can all save.

Sunday deals are up! (Jan. 29-Feb. 4)

A new infusion of coupons along with Super Bowl promotions make for an excellent week of deals. You can score bargains on soda, frozen pizzas, M&Ms and nuts. You can also collect several freebies, including greeting cards, chocolate and aspirin. But my favorite deal of the bunch: milk for $2.79 a gallon at Walgreens.

FREE BIC pens at WalMart

Now is the perfect time to stock up on BIC pens at WalMart, where you can score yourself 10-count packages for FREE.

The BIC pens are actually better than free. WalMart will pay you three cents per package to purchase them.

Here's how:

Right now the BIC Cristal pens are priced at 97 cents.

Use the $1/1 BIC coupon from the Jan. 8 Smart Source 2 insert.

WalMart's coupon policy states:

If coupon value exceeds the price of the item, the excess may be given to the customer as cash or applied toward the basket purchase.

In other words, FREE pens! The extra three cents will help pay the tax.

These are great items to donate to your neighborhood school, faith organization or charity.

Another big Sunday for coupons

It's another great weekend for coupons.

Look for four regular coupon inserts -- two Smart Source, one General Mills and one Red Plum -- in this Sunday's home-delivered Final Edition of The News & Observer.

And be sure to check for two additional sets of coupons: one from Target and one from WalMart.

Altogether, there will be 242 coupons with a face value of about $324. But, of course, with Harris Teeter offering Super Double coupons right now, those coupons have the potential for additional savings.

As always, I'll have the coupon database updated and the best Sunday deals posted early tomorrow morning, about the same time your paper hits the driveway.

And, I'll have a separate list of new Super Doubles deals using the new coupons.

(Single-copy and State Edition newspapers may not contain all coupon inserts.)
 

A coupon to buy a magazine full of coupons

The online coupon printing site, Coupons.com, has got a 50-cent off coupon right now for "All You" magazine.

That's 50 cents off a $2.50 magazine full of coupons.

UPDATED: Sunday deals: The Holiday Edition

With Christmas just a week away and Hanukkah even closer, the sales circulars are loaded with ads for toys, fragrances, candy and those as-seen-on-TV gadgets and gizmos.

Look a little closer, however, and you'll find plenty of real deals -- freebies and cheapies to fill stockings and help make your holidays more festive. I've highlighted many of them for you in this week's list of all the best deals at CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, Target, Kroger and Kerr Drug.

Best prices on holiday baking ingredients

Chocolate chips aren't cheap and neither are basics like flour and sugar, especially if you're buying for marathon sessions in the kitchen this holiday season.

So here's my gift to you -- a cheat sheet on the best prices I could find on seven key ingredients in holiday goodies: flour, sugar, eggs, butter, pure vanilla, chocolate chips and marshmallow cream.

I checked seven stores in the Triangle (Aldi, Food Lion, Harris Teeter, Kroger, Lowes Foods, Target and WalMart) and here's what I found.
