Bulk Meats Cheap! ~ $1.69/lb Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts & More!

zaycon_fresh_chicken

Zaycon Fresh has delivery locations all over the US.  They sell all sorts of bulk foods (mostly meats) at different times during the year.

They have locations ALL OVER, even smaller communities, so be sure to check out their list.  There are different ordering deadlines, depending on your area, but they do sell out from time to time, so be aware of that.   Delivery dates also vary, but right now they seem to be the end of May or early June.

Note:  Products may sell out, but make sure you get on the waiting list.  If enough are on it, they’ll get another truck load out your way!

Here’s what I see near me:

  • Boneless, skinless chicken breasts for $1.69/lb (40 lbs, never frozen, all-natural, no additives, minimally processed)
  • Boneless, skinless chicken thighs for $1.99/lb (40 lbs, all-natural, minimally processed, individually quick frozen)
  • Chicken drumsticks 99¢/lb (40 lbs)
  • Hickory smoked bacon $3.49/lb (36 lbs)
  • Pork sausage links $2.49/lb (20 lbs, frozen, not pre-cooked)
  • Ground beef patties $3.90/lb (16 lbs, 48 1/3-lb patties, frozen, 80/20)

Here’s what you need to know about the chicken breasts . . . (similar for other products)

You will be purchasing 40 pounds at a time.  Typically, if you wait long enough, we’ve been able to find chicken in the store is about $1.79/lb.  Zaycon chicken is $1.69/lb, and you are getting fresh from the farm chicken.  It’s 100% natural chicken, minimally processed, with no additives or artificial ingredients.

It comes in a box with four separate 10 pound bags.  If you don’t have the freezer space, consider sharing it with a friend.  The total cost will be $67.60 plus tax.

They have a short video, if you want to see what to expect.

Be prepared!  It’s a very large amount of chicken and they are huge breasts.  (They are almost too thick to just throw on the BBQ.  You’ll probably want to slice them.)   I spend a couple hours prepping mine.  I slice some, fajita style.  I cube others.  I make tenders out of some.  And, I leave some larger.  You can also freeze it with your favorite marinade.  Of course, you can just stuff them all in freezer bags without very much prep and it wouldn’t take nearly so long.  I always LOVE that I did the work ahead of time.  I just pull out a quart sized freezer bag and dinner is so simple!

Note:  The case is 18 in wide x 12 in deep x 7 in tall.  However, if you prep it all, it doesn’t take up nearly that much space.  I have a shoebox in my freezer and place quart-sized bags in there, upright.  It will fill a large box and then I have a few I place on top of those.  So, a mega-size shoe box.  :)  I need to remember to take a picture, the next time I do it.

The pick up process is super easy.  You don’t even have to get out of your vehicle.  You drive through and they load it up for you.

Place your order now if you want it.¢/lb

** They have a referral program where you can earn a $1 credit for each order placed.  After you sign up, if you decide to tell your friends about it, find your own referral link to give them.  I appreciate you using mine, but don’t send them to my link . . . get your own credit!

Verify Email Subscriptions! ~ Great Way to Follow (Also Facebook, Twitter, or RSS Feed)

email_updates2

If you don’t get the Bargain Believer emails, you may want them.  You will receive one email between 3pm & 5pm, usually around 3pm.  (No, I’m not sitting at my computer at that exact time every single day.  They’re automatic and I never know the precise time they’ll go out.) :)

They will show you everything that was listed since the previous email went out.  It’s an easy way to glance over what was posted that day and make sure you didn’t miss anything.   Fair warning:  You’ll be bugged everyday around 3pm, but you can unsubscribe at anytime.   :)

If you’ve ever signed up to get the daily emails and you’re not getting them, you probably didn’t verify your email.  There is a significant number of people on the email list that haven’t.  Sign up again at this link and make sure to go to your email and click on the link.  It should come right away.

Of course, you can also follow other ways . . . Facebook gets a little extra love sometimes, with quickly disappearing deals, reminders, and just more interaction.  If you use Facebook, it’s another great way to follow.

Make sure “follow” is checked after you have “liked” Bargain Believer (beside the “liked” button).  Even better, hover over the “liked” button and check “get notifications.”  When you’re on Facebook, a little box will pop up when we post something and it will also be listed under your “notifications” tab on top.  As always, the best way to not miss anything is to comment or “like” posts on the Bargain Believer Facebook page …. often!

Kohl’s Fitbit Flex only $69.99 (after Kohl’s cash and free shipping)

fitbit

Have you been thinking about getting a Fitbit?  They are all the rage right now.

The cost was holding me back at $100, and they rarely go on sale.

This week though, they are on sale for $79.99 at Kohl’s!  Happy Mother’s Day to me!  I just got myself one yesterday.

Even better, you’ll get $10 in Kohl’s cash, bringing the price down to just $69.99!  And it ship free!

This is the cheapest I’ve ever seen these.  If you’ve been thinking about it, now is the time.

You can get it in:
Black
Pink
Slate

Unfortunately, none of the Kohl’s promo codes, like 20% off, work with these.

Here’s more info about them:

Track your day, track your night! This slim, stylish Fitbit Flex wireless activity tracker and sleep wristband motivates you by offering a total fitness picture. Limit 2 per household. Flex tracks steps, distance, calories burned and active minutes, showing progress with LED lights. Device monitors your sleep and wakes you with a silent, vibrating alarm. Set goals, view progress and earn badges.

If this doesn’t interest you, Kohl’s has other great sales right now.  Go here to start shopping

Here are some codes:
MOMSDAY10 ($10 off your Mother’s Day gift purchase of $50 or more)
YES2ME
(20% off your entire purchase)
HASBROSW20 (20% off all Star Wars toys by Hasbro)

Through, May 10th, you will earn $10 Kohl’s cash for every $50 you spend.

I used my affiliate link, just in case you make a purchase online.  Thanks for using it!

Note:  You an also start at Ebates.  (Search for “Kohl’s” and shop as you normally would, after clicking to the Kohl’s website from there.)  You’ll get 6% into your account.  You can cash out when you hit $10.  Keep using Ebates to save, when you shop online.  It’s a nice little bonus!  I think first time users (with purchase over $25) also get a $10 gift card for places like Target or Home Depot.  I can’t verify it since I’m not new, but I heard it’s still going on, somewhat recently.

Groupon Mother’s Day Offer ~ Anti-Bargain ~ Get a Stunt Child

groupon_stunt

Did you see this Mother’s Day offer on Groupon?

For $25,000 you can send someone else to spend Mother’s Day with your mother.

You know that I like a bargain like the rest of you, so I want to point out that it includes a $5,000 shopping spree at her favorite store, so it’s really like paying a mere $20,000, right?  And, there are some nice little perks they throw in.  Make sure you see the full details and read all the fine print before making your purchase.  :)

Anyone going for this “deal?”

P.S.  I’m giving you my Groupon affiliate link, just in case one of you are rich and stupid nice enough to buy it for your mother.  My “little” commission percentage would be pretty hefty on something like this.  Gina, you’re getting a raise, if we see that commission come in.  :)

Have Lots of Flour Tortillas? Make This Yummy Dessert!

cinnamon_crisps

Oh my gosh, I was just reading Pioneer Woman’s blog and came across this recipe that looks SOOOOO GOOD!

It’s the perfect way to use up some of those flour tortillas we got for free!

Cinnamon Crisps

Ingredients:
1 stick Butter, Melted
3 whole Flour Tortillas (small Size)
1 cup Sugar
1 Tablespoon Ground Cinnamon

Preparation Instructions:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
Brush butter on one side of the flour tortillas. Sprinkle generously with the cinnamon sugar. Flip tortillas to the other side, then sprinkle on the cinnamon sugar.
Bake for 15-17 minutes until very crisp. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
Break into pieces and eat as snacks…or serve with ice cream!

Go to her blog for detailed instructions and step by step pictures.  Then, make this tonight!  We’ve made it before, but I forgot all about it.  I’m not sure how that’s possible.  It’s life changing.  :)

(Thanks for the pic and recipe, Pioneer Woman!)

East Valley School or Group Fundraiser ~ Popular in Summer — Simple & Fun!

pogo_fundraiser_graphic

Anyone know a group or school in the Phoenix area (especially East Valley, since many activities are there) that wants to raise money?

It can be as simple as sending a flyer home at the end of the year, posting in on a group Facebook page, or sending out an email to your contact list.

Pogo Passes sell themselves, if people understand that they’ll get into 17 fun venues (some more than once!) this summer … CHEAP!

I love this since you don’t have to ask people to buy overpriced items, but get to tell them how to have fun with their family & friends, for a bargain.  It’s a win-win!

The group will get $5 for every pass sold and they never have to collect money or deliver anything.  Sales can be done through Facebook pages, websites, emails, flyers, etc.  Sales track with a unique discount code or URL.

If interested, please email me or comment below and I can get your information to the right people and help get you set up.  juli @ bargain believer . com (take out spaces)

your code

For those who want to purchase now:  Go to the Pogo Pass website (That link should get you the $39.98 rate.  If not, use the code BARGAIN.)

  • Castles & Coasters (ONE visit anytime, $30 package!)
  • Sunsplash (ONE visit anytime during regular season)
  • Phoenix Zoo (TWO visits, anytime)
  • Makutu’s Island (TWO visits, Monday – Friday)
  • Diamondbacks Games (TWO games, season over now, but will be back next season)
  • Rattlers Games (THREE games, dates will be added throughout season)
  • i.d.e.a. Museum (TWO visits anytime, except opening weekends which are three weekends per year)

  • Fat Cats (Grand Opening in Gilbert is in the future and they will begin accepting passes after opening… stay tuned)

** Each person needs one, unless they’re 2 or younger.  Most places won’t charge admission and it’s not worth buying them one.  If you have a 3-yr old, check the venues you will use and see what their policy is for three year olds.  If you plan to get full use out of your passes, you’ll want one for your 3-yr old.

Note:  They have the gift option back.  You can buy them now and redeem the code when you or your recipient wants the 365 days of fun!

For those who want to purchase now:  Go to the Pogo Pass website (That link should get you the $39.98 rate.  If not, use the code BARGAIN.)

Earn 100 fuel points, for 10¢ off per gallon
Buy a Sam’s Club membership for $45
Get almost $43 in freebies at Sam’s, including a $20 gift card.

If you don’t have a Sam’s Club card … follow me on this deal.  You almost can’t afford not to get one!

groupon_frys#2 If you also load the 2x fuel points coupon, you’ll earn 100 pts from this transaction, if you buy it on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.  That will get you an additional 10¢ off at the pump!

Automatically, you’ll receive super bonuses, including a $20 Sam’s Club gift card!  Here’s what deal you’re buying on Groupon.

Offer valid for new Sam’s Club Members only; not valid for those with a current membership or those who were Sam’s Club members less than 6 months prior to April 21, 2015.

$45 for a Sam’s Plus Membership package ($142.94 value)

#3  Then, head directly to Groupon or through Ebates to purchase your deal, using the gift cards from Fry’s.  (If this is your first deal you’ve done through Ebates, you should also get a $10 gift card from a place like Target.  I can’t be 100% sure, since I’m not new, but a few months ago a reader received it.)

Through Ebates, you’ll also get 6% into your account.  You can cash out when you hit $10.  Keep using Ebates to save, when you shop online.  It’s a nice little bonus!
