What I like to call the Crazy Kraft Cheese Sale was back on at my store this week.  This sale is always very random so there is no guarantee you will find it. But it is definitely something to look for and you can always scan to double check the price just in case.  It is always on the Kraft refrigerated shredded Parmesan, Romano & Asiago variety only and it was marked down to $2.29 from $3.99.  We also have a $1/2 Kraft cheese item Target Web Coupon you can use to pick up 2 for $1.79 each after coupon if you find it at your store too.

Sunday night I posted about a big improvement to the $5 Gift Card Deal wyb 2 select Banana Boat or Hawaiian Tropic Suncare.  (You can read the details and requirements on the post at that link). Anyway, after reading thru the comments from readers it seems to me that there is a good chance none of the bonus packs are working on this deal, so you may want to avoid them. If you do not see a sign on the lip balm, it does not necessarily mean it’s not included, while signs may be removed, it will still remain included in the system and as long as you are buying 1 full size product (not bonus size or bonus packs) and 1 lip balm, the register should prompt for a gift card. While things can change at any time, so far I hear it is still working. Lot’s of you have also spotted $2/1 manufacturer peelies at your stores too making it even better.  (-Thanks for the pic Karen!)
IMPORTANT NOTE- It has come to my attention that I mistakenly originally listed the Hawaiian Tropic coupon as a $1/1 from the 5/22 RP, when it is actually a $1/1 or some of you may have a $2/1 variation from the 5/22 SS (Thanks Katie). Sorry for the error folks!

I noticed a special purchase deal at my store for a FREE 2 liter of any Pepsi product wyb 2 select Lay’s or Tostitos at 2/$7.  I know there have been a lot of tear pads out there for Tostitos, so maybe you will have something up your sleeve that can make the deal better.  If your store allows a coupon on the free item, there is also the .55/1 Diet Pepsi 2 liter in the 3-6-11 SS, but it is only valid thru today 5/31.  Anyway, here are the details in case you are interested…

SPECIAL PURCHASE: FREE 2 liter Pepsi wyb Select Tostitos or Lays*
Deal and prices valid thru 6/18.  Deal and prices may vary by region.
*Tostitos Select 14.5 – 18 oz Family Size 2/$7
*Lays Classic Family Size Chips 13.5 oz 2/$7

I found the regular Coffee-mate 16 oz bottles for $1.94 at my store and they also had the new Natural Bliss flavors but those were a little pricier at $2.49.  We did get a new $1/2 Coffee-mate Target Web Coupon on Sunday that you can stack with two of the .55/1 Coffee-mate coupon on the Nestle site to pick up 2 of the regular liquid creamers for $1.78 or .89 cents each. But you may find this cheaper at your store. Apparently there is a regional price cut going on- and Belinda found it in her store for $1.79, (-Thanks Belinda!) so I wish you guys luck! Maybe it will go for me next week.

Today is the last day to make the most out of the Pantene B2G1 Free Special Purchase Deal as the $3/2 manufacturer’s coupon expires today, 5/31.  (You can see the details of this deal on my Best Deals of the Week post).  If you have not tried this deal yet, there are a few styling products that are not behaving nicely at the register and not prompting as FREE.  So you will need to keep an eye on it to make sure the styler comes off at check out.  I purchased the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Smoothing Balm and the Curly Detangler and both worked just fine, but I do hear there are some that are not.  But on a positive note- I doubled my deal and bought six products and all 6 of my coupons (three $3/2 MQs from 5-1-11 PG & three $1.50/2 TQs 5-1-11 Target P&G) went through without beeping. I hope it works/worked as well for all of you as it’s an awesome deal when doubled.

If you missed the Gift Card deal last week & have the Blazing Beauty Target Coupons- I noticed ProSkin Single Count razors for $4.99 on a new endcap display. You can stack the $2/1 Venus Spa Breeze, Breeze or Proskin Razor Target Coupon Blazing Beauty Flyer 5-22-11 x6/30 with the $2/1 Venus Razor or Venus Disposables Razor 5-15-11 RP x6/30 & pick up a razor for 99¢.

-That’s it for now folks, hope everyone is having a good week so far!

    I hit Target this morning. Did the Banana Boat Deal. There was no signage on the Lip Balms, but the deal did still work! I bought a full size item and a lip balm and the register prompted the GC. Yea!

  2. S says:

    One thing I noticed in my Target store is a lot of Archer Farms products have coupon peelies for other Archer Farms stuff. The chips have a $1 coupon off AF pizza, the juice had a $1/2 AF snack mix, something else had a $1/2 AF juices..

  3. Jeaneane says:

    was the target p&g coupon for banana boat in with the other p&g or was it a separate insert??

  4. Kerry says:

    Hey Jeaneane. Not sure what you are talking about- BB is not a P&G product. I believe there was a Target coupon for Banana Boat in Real Simple magazine June Issue, maybe that’s what you are referring to?

  5. Casey says:

    Like you said, there was no sign on the Lip Balms, but it’s included in the deal. I’m not sure if other people have the same issue, the deal didn’t work for me at the register for the HAWAIIAN TROPIC cooling gel, no gift card prompted. When I bring it to customer services, they do see the gift deal!

  6. Angie says:

    I was able to get a gift card on the lip balm. I did run into the mistake of getting the After Sun Lotion on sale for 4.99, so with the coupons, the gift card would not pop up, so I saved one of the coupons and was able to get them both for 74 cents. Just remember, the total price of the two products MUST equal $5 to get the giftcard.

  7. Casey says:

    Ohh, forgot to mention one more GC that didn’t work for me at the register for me is RaidMax bug spray. My cashier found it in the ad. and had to manually input the GC. Good luck to everyone.

    Last night I was at target and they on one of the end caps they have a sale for 17.49 buy one Charmin mega roll (18ct) and get a free charmin flushable box of wipes.. I used the target coupon from a few weeks ago. 2.5O off 9pk or larger and charmin wipes. 15 dollars for the toilet paper and free wipes! Also I was really excited to see the frenchs mustard still with the free honeymustard attached to it (so free) but I was able to use the frenchs honeymustard .75 off coupon and I got the twin pack for .75 total!!

  9. holly says:

    Can a coupon be used on the free Pantene item? Buy three shampoos, get one free styling aid and use two $3/2 coupons?

  10. Kerry says:

    yes holly- some stores will allow it and that is what i did- bought 4 shampoo & conditioner, and 2 free stylers. used 3 $3/2 MQ & three $1.50/2 TQs, and for me- there were no beeps. see the link to the best deals post for more details and all other Qs I know about.

  11. Mary says:

    When I clicked the link for Pantene, I could only see the deal for the sunscreen. It’s very informative, and I wrote that information down, but you may need to put in a different link for Pantene. Thanks!

  12. Kerry says:

    Thanks Mary- looks like I am batting 1,000 today- fixed the link.

  13. Andrea says:

    I never see that cheese at that price.. whaaah – I’m in Boca – land of the super high prices

  14. Lori says:

    You rock, Kerry. Can’t wait to score me some cheap sunblock 😉

  15. Barbara says:

    I tried the Banana Boat deal at my Target in Kansas and it didn’t work. Went to Customer Service and they honored it though she said the lip balms weren’t suppose to be included. (Even though there was a sign!)

  16. bethany says:

    Just wanted to let everyone know I went to target & in the bulk section they had a bunch of woolite & degree deodorant on sale! the woolite was a double pack & with the $3 off coupon that was from a few sundays ago it ended up being only $2.34 per bottle 😉 the woman’s degree was a five pack & I used the buy one get one free coupon & 0.75 off coupon it was only 0.26 per deodorant!!! wooop wooop I think it was a pretty killer deal!

  17. Jahnae says:

    So I went to Target yesterday and I had the Kraft sale! We are cheese fanatics here! Any idea how long this sale is good for, maybe I can get my hands on some more printables! Thanks!

  18. Kerry says:

    Hey Jahnae- glad you found it- sale is valid this week only thru 6/4

  19. Aarin says:

    just left T. bought two bottle of BB sun care and lotion and two lip balms, used 2 /$1 coupons. I got one $5 gift card, not two. the cashier said he didn’t think the lip balm was included in the deal but after i checked my coupon the way it was broken down said “promotion” with the lotion and one lip balm for the $5 gift card….I will go back tomorrow and either return the other two items or see if customer service will fix the 2nd deal…was rushed on a lunch break.

  20. Kerry says:

    Hey Aarin- you know I think now you are the third person that said they did 2 deals in one transaction and the second deal did not prompt. I am wondering if this deal isn’t better off being done in separate transactions and for some reason it is affecting the outcome when you do them together. hmmm

  21. Missy R says:

    I did my sunscreen + lip balm deals in separate transactions, and NONE of them prompted a gift card. I tried the after-sun products you suggested as well as regular sunscreen, non-bonus pack, and NO deal. Customer Service didn’t offer to give me a GC, and said they thought you had to buy two IDENTICAL items (wrong!) and that the lip balm was not included (there was a sign just for the lip balm!). They thought I was goofy for asking them to try a combination at the counter after what I tried at the checkout failed.
