Printable Produce Coupon! ~ BOGO Avocado

avocado We have a rare printable coupon for avocados.
If you eat them, it’s probably worth printing!

While you’re there, look around since more new printables have popped up recently.

Here’s another good one . . .
$3.00 off any FIVE Kelloggs Cereals

Thanks for Printing Coupons w/ Our Link ~ Please Bookmark This Page

Printing from here (or many links we provide) is a huge help.
If you would bookmark it, we’d be very grateful!
(There’s also a link on the top menu bar of the website.)

I want to thank everyone who uses our links to print your coupons.  Even printing just one coupon every couple days helps keep the revenue coming in, so I can continue to pay people to help me.  Without their help, I definitely would have quit by now.  It’s just too much work for me to do alone.

 For those who don’t print from our links, please consider it, instead of just going directly to Coupons.com.  If everyone who used this site printed just one or two coupons a week … well, we’d be rich and we wouldn’t want to go anywhere, ever!  :)  We earn a small amount, but it sure adds up with all of you doing it!
If you have a spot to bookmark the link below and use it for coupon prints (that we don’t give you a link for), or when you want to browse.  It would really help!
Thank you!

♥ ♥ Hearts on Lists! ♥ ♥ (Find Best Deals More Easily)

♥ ♥ = We love this deal!  We doubt it will go much lower than this.  Stock up!
♥  = This is a great deal.  If you use this product, get it!

This is pretty self-explanatory, but for those who haven’t noticed yet … we just started adding hearts to the coupon match ups.

As you can imagine, we don’t use every product we have on the lists.  We aren’t 100% sure what a good deal is on everything.  This is just a guideline to get you focused in on some of the best deals.  If you use a lot of something or specifically need a product, it doesn’t mean nothing else on the list is a good deal.  Don’t be afraid of the other deals.  :)

If you ever see something that’s an amazing deal, to you, and we missed marking it … let us know!  We’d love to make sure we highlight it for others, so they don’t miss out.

Hope this makes your life a little easier and helps you save even more!

Note from Juli . . .


Please tell everyone in AZ you know (or even strangers!) to check us out.  If they don’t already love you, they may start!  :)  Most of you know this, but just in case you don’t … I pay people to help me since I just don’t have time to spend on what is needed  to keep this site going.  I use affiliate links and advertising, to generate an income.  We get to continue because of those who use our links and help us grow by telling others about Bargain Believer​.

I want to be honest/clear … our #1 priority is to save you money, not make money.  But, for one to happen, the other needs to happen or we can’t continue.  I still refuse to post things that I hope a few of you might jump on, just to make a buck .. at the expense of wasting everyone else’s time & diluting the things I find valuable.  We really pick and choose what we feel is the best, especially for AZ residents, without becoming a site that just lists Amazon & other affiliate deals all the time.  That means the majority of our posts make us a whopping $0.   I get as excited to post those as I do the money making ones, if I know you will benefit.

With that said, sometimes I feel guilty for posting the things I make money on.  In some ways, it would be easier if I didn’t make/need money.  My guilt would be less.

Later this afternoon, I will put up a post about Pogo Pass.  I’m sorry for those of you who are sick of seeing it.  However, please realize that it’s extremely popular and I get thanked for sharing it all the time.  It’s an amazing value and I completely believe in it.  Also, keep in mind that we have new people come to the site each day and most people don’t see every post we do (shocking to a few of you loyal followers, I know)  :)  Honestly … we probably couldn’t afford to keep doing what we’re doing without Pogo’s generous commission.  I’d love for you to share or tag people on that post (or any!) if you think anyone would benefit.  Side note:  Pogo can also be used for fundraisers.  If you know a school or non-profit that needs to make some money, please send me an email (juli@bargainbeliever.com).  Or, it can even be a business that wants to put flyers on their counter.  They are a super company to work with.

Okay, this didn’t start out so long in my mind, but I’m a world-class rambler.  I’m glad you’re here and really don’t know how to fully express that to you, but just believe me … I love sharing deals and it’s much easier to share them, than keep them to myself.  Well … in some ways.  :)  THANK YOU!  ~ Juli

Mexican Haystacks Recipe ~ Unique Dinner Using Waffles

We have a recipe to share with you.  Becca calls it Mexican Haystacks.  It’s almost too unique, not to try!
.Here’s what she says about it . . ..
“This is a recipe that my grandma used to make all the time when I lived with her in college.  I’m not sure where it came from but I grew up having it at her house and haven’t seen it anyplace else!  It’s my go to meal when I don’t know what else to make and I’m shopping my pantry!”

Give them a try and tell us what you and your family thinks!

Mexican Haystacks
1 small can chunk pineapple
1 cup small cubed chicken – fresh or canned
1 10.5oz can cream of chicken soup – cream of mushroom works also if you like mushrooms
1/3 cup milk
Frozen waffles – any variety
chow mein noodles – optional
slivered almonds – optional
salt & pepper – as needed
Combine cream of chicken soup, cubed chicken, & milk in large deep skillet on med-high heat until bubbling.  Turn down to medium and add pineapple until warm, liquids should be a thick, gravy-like consistency.  While cooking liquids, heat up frozen waffles in toaster oven.
Place cooked waffle on a plate and spoon chicken/pineapple mixture on top.  Add a sprinkle of chow mein noodles and/or slivered almonds on top for crunch.  Add salt & pepper to taste.
Serve and enjoy!
Makes approx 4-5 waffles.  Can double recipe for larger crowds.
(Thank you for submitting the recipe, Becca Holt!)

Get Facebook Page Updates to Show Up in Feed (New Way!)


I just found a new (at least to me!) setting for pages you follow on Facebook.  One of the most common questions we get is how to see all Bargain Believer posts in your Facebook feed.  It’s frustrating when you want to see something and Facebook just doesn’t show it to you.

We know that commenting, sharing, and “liking” posts helps.  But, it looks like we may have a new option.  Hope this really works!!

Some deals go quickly, so it’s a great way to follow us, if you’re on Facebook a lot.  Plus, we post some added information or have a Facebook-only giveaway from time to time.

Assuming you want to see everything we post  . . .

Supposedly, Bargain Believer posts will show up at the top of your feed.  Give it a try and let us know what happens.

Help! We Need Your Catalina Notifications! ~ (& Juli’s Luck …)

If you get any Catalina notifications, please send them our way because . . .

There is a serious conspiracy against me getting Catalina notifications!  I joke that the only way I get them is to reach in trash cans or bend down in dark, wet parking lots.  No joke — almost.  I may get a notification every couple months.  That’s it.

Well, I did my usual . . . reached in a trash can on the way out the door at Fry’s today.  (Yes, I’ll stoop that low — just for you!)  :)

Here’s what I got . . .  I can’t read dates, products, etc.  There are lines going through it.  Figures.


Here’s what Allison had already sent me last night . . . Why do I bother trying?

allison_catAnd, I got this “bonus” . . .


I’m not sure if it’s an exclusive offer or one we can all get.  It looks like it’s adding up all the Minute Maid drink purchases and spiting out a coupon, at some point.  It’s not the typical Catalina offer.  They are only 88¢ / $1.38 starting Wed. at Fry’s, so . . .  if I had all the details, it might reveal a better bargain.  But, I don’t.  Those types are usually only for select people, but ??  I’ll buy one tomorrow and see if I get the printout — sure!  If you get any details, let us know!

If you see an offer on the master Catalina list and it doesn’t thank someone … it means Gina, Susan, or Allison got it.  Without them or you … that list would be blank!

Catalinas are a great way to maximize your savings.  If you don’t know what they are, read here.

If you want to see the most current list, go here.

I hope to add some more.  Send us pics of your notifications!!  THANKS!

juli @ bargain believer .com  or gina @ bargain believer .com (take out spaces)

Or, you can post them over on the Bargain Believer Facebook page.  Thanks so much!

Crock-Pot Chicken Posole
