Sunday Coupon Preview ~ One Coming on 7/5

                 

Typically on holiday weekends, we don’t receive any coupon inserts.  But, this Sunday is different, it looks like we should be getting one insert this Sunday . . .Proctor & Gamble (P&G).  If you like to peek ahead to see what coupons you should expect on Sunday, I have them listed for you below.  Remember, coupons are sometimes regional, so there aren’t any guarantees what we’ll get.

az_republic_3_for_1If you don’t get the Sunday coupons, you can get the Sunday and Wednesday Arizona Republic delivered for only $12 for 3 months, if you haven’t been a subscriber in the past 30 days.   I have verified that this is the best rate they currently have available.  You pay for one month, get two for free.  That works out to approximately $1 per week!  The key is that you need to cancel in three months, if you decide not to continue at full price, since it’s an autopay offer.  I’ve often called to cancel a promotional rate and they’ve extended it, but no guarantees on that.

Here’s what we hope to get.

pasta_recipe

Here’s a great recipe that Carla sent us.  Most of these items are on sale this week at Fry’s as part of their mega sale.

I love this recipe because I can’t do too much alfredo, so mixing it together with red sauce sounds perfect!

Shells

12 ounces shells can substitute macaroni or other shaped pasta if desired.

1 onion, chopped
1/2 lb ground beef
1 cup alfredo sauce (like Ragu)
1 jar red spaghetti sauce (like Ragu)
2 tomatoes, finely chopped
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp sugar
1/4 c Parmesan
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated

Cook shells according to package directions. Heat oil in skillet. Brown beef and onion in skillet. Drain fat. add red spaghetti sauce, tomatoes, basil, oregano, parsley, and sugar. bring to a boil and let simmer for 15 minutes. in a casserole dish put half of the noodles. put half the red sauce over it. then put half the mozzarella cheese. Repeat. Drizzle the 1 cup white sauce over the top. Sprinkle the Parmesan over the top. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Enjoy.

Free Dave & Buster’s Unlimited Play Card w/ $150 Purchase at Tempe Marketplace or Desert Ridge

dave_&_busters

I love deals like this, if you can spend the money on things you would anyway.   I did a similar one a few months ago and it’s super simple and painless!  :)

Spend $150 at Tempe Marketplace or Desert Ridge on one day in July (see dates below) and get one free unlimited game play card at Dave & Buster’s ($35 value).

Details are here for Tempe (through July 31st or while supplies last) and here for Desert Ridge (through July 31st or while supplies last).

Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy at US Airways Center April 8-12. – See more at: http://www.tempemarketplace.com/disney/#sthash.bYsZzsw0.dpuf

Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Fantasy at US Airways Center April 8-12. – See more at: http://www.tempemarketplace.com/disney/#sthash.bYsZzsw0.dpuf

It sounds like a lot of money, but when you see the list of stores included at each location, you’ll probably realize it’s not hard to hit.  Go here for Tempe Marketplace and here for Desert Ridge details.  There’s a drop down menu with all the stores listed.  Look for places like Target, Michael’s, Albertson’s, CVS, restaurants, etc.  ** You could also buy gift cards and make your “real” purchase later.  Just make sure you have $150 in receipts from ONE day.

You will need to bring your receipts from one day of shopping (don’t have to be turned in the same day) to their management office Monday – Friday from 8:30am – 5:00pm.  The links above tell you exactly where to find the offices.

Here’s their fine print:
Dave and Buster’s unlimited video game play cards exclude ticketed games and are not valid on Wednesdays. Visit Dave and Buster’s to activate your card. Once card is activated, it will expire at the close of business the same day. Cards must be used by August 31, 2015. Applies to purchases made on the same day, July 1-31, 2015. Limit 1 free game play card per person for the duration of the promotion. Offer valid while supplies last. Must be 18 or older. Other restrictions may apply.

**  Note:  Call their office, if you are making a special purchase to get these.  Make sure they still have some left!  And, if you a buying a gift card and want to be 100% safe, you may want verify that you still can.  I did it before and know others have, but you just never know when they might decide to change things.  I don’t want anyone too sad!  :)

Zaycon Fresh ~ Chicken for $1.89/lb (no additives, no added hormones, etc.)

Zaycon is back with chicken for $1.89/lb!  This is a SUPER price!  This is for deliveries in November, so you have lots of time to go through what’s in your freezer.  They do sell out, so you will want to reserve yours soon.  They have 93% lean beef for $3.99/lb with delivery dates at the end of July and August.

Here’s what you need to know . . (It may sell out, but make sure you get on the waiting list.  If enough are on it, they’ll get another truck load out our way!)

You can get Zaycon chicken for $1.89/lb!  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 $1.89/lb, and you are getting fresh from the farm chicken.  Never frozen, no additives, no added hormones, etc.  A dime more per pound is nothing for getting natural chicken.

Here’s the information I’ve shared about them before, and ordering information:

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 seem to be in November.  They currently have beef being delivered at the end of July

It’s a lot of boneless, skinless chicken breasts . . . 40 pounds to be exactIt’s fresh from the farm, never been frozen. There are no added hormones, 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 $65.60 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!

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.

Note:  They also have other foods available.  Check out pricing and what’s available in your area, since it varies.

** They have a referral program where you can earn a $1 credit for each order placed.  For a limited time, it’s $5 per referral!  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!
