That .30/1 HARIBO product 4 oz. or larger coupon is back and available to print again- and I am sure as usual it will be very brief- so grab it while you can. A lot of you have been reporting finding several different Haribo varieties on clearance for 15-30% Off down to between .70 and .85 cents at Target, so as low as .40 cents each after clearance and coupon if you find the same.

Thanks for the pic to Heather & for the coupon to Charisse!

Here’s what has been spotted on clearance this week along with any coupon matchups I could find. Remember- clearance can vary greatly from store to store- there is no guarantee you will find the same or for the same
discount. But I try & list specific varieties, prices & other details when I can, since not everything gets stickered and sometimes it’s worth a quick scan to check.

GROCERY: There were quite a few new clearance finds in grocery this week mostly 15% off like Kellogg’s Pop Tarts, Archer Farms cookies and crackers, assorted candy, and tons of assorted chips up to 30% off.

Heather spotted Haribo Gummies for .85 cents a bag. There are no coupons right now Actually- our crazy  .30/1 HARIBO product 4 oz. or larger is back for now (-Thanks Charisse!) , so grab it while you can. A couple of you have commented seeing these as much as 30% Off down to .70, so you may find an even better deal!
