After taking a well-deserved break last week, our bargain hunter is back with all kinds of great deals around town this week and tips on how to make the most of promotions going on at MARTIN’S and Kroger.
It’s good to be back in Richmond after a week vacationing on the Northern Neck, but I already miss its plentiful roadside stands selling delicious, low-priced local produce!
There is a printable coupon available on MARTIN’S website for $2 off a $5 produce purchase, valid through 8/21.
MARTIN’S is offering “Coupon Doubler” coupons again this week – clip them from the circular and combine with $1 manufacturer’s coupons to receive double value. Limit 4 with minimum $15 purchase.
Kroger is running an “Add Up the Savings” promotion – Save $4 when you buy any 8 participating items, which works out to $.50 savings per item. See below for some of the specific deals.
And more “Free After Checkout Coupon” school supplies: Like the Crayola crayon deal, when you purchase five 10-count packages of Papermate Write Bros pens (on sale for $.33 each), a coupon will print at checkout for $2 off your next purchase.
Meat Top Pick
Tyson boneless, skinless chicken breasts $1.99/lb at Kroger
Veggie Top Pick
Broccoli $1.50 a bunch at Kroger
Fruit Top Pick
Locally grown yellow nectarines $.99/lb at Whole Foods OR
Strawberries $1.50 at MARTIN’S (If you’re buying produce at MARTIN’S, remember to print the $2 off $5 produce purchase linked above.)
Dairy Top Pick

Staples Top Pick
Selected Progresso soups are $1.19 after discount for buying 8 “Add Up the Savings” items at Kroger.

PLUS, there is a Progresso Catalina deal going on – receive a checkout coupon for $1 off your next order when you buy four Progresso, or $2 coupon when you buy six. Final price for six cans (use 3 coupons): $2.14

Sugar rush alert: try Betty Crocker Sweet Moments refrigerated desserts for only $.88 at Kroger after discount for buying 8 “Add Up the Savings” items and using a $1 coupon — either printable from Coupons.com, clipped from the 8/8 General Mills insert, or loading an e-coupon from Cellfire.com.
Beverage Top Pick
I cannot stand Sunny D, but it is only $.59 for a 64oz bottle at Kroger when you buy 8 “Add Up the Savings” items, and only $.09 if you have the $.25 coupon from 8/8 or 6/20 SmartSource inserts.
