I went to Safeway yesterday and did some really good deals on steak, produce and cereal. The deals were better because I was able to stack them.

Safeway has a promotion when you buy a $50 gift card to penny's, lowes or Kohls you get a $10 on your next order coupon. I got the gift card earlier in the week so I had the $10 coupon.

Sirloin steak was on sale for $4.99/lb. However if you bought $20, there was a coupon for $4 off in the ad. And if you bought $25, you got a free $13 steak Knife. I purchased $25.50 worth of sirloin steaks and the steak knife. The steak knife was free and after taking off the $4 coupon and using the $10 coupon I paid $11.50 for about 8 pounds of steak. I used the knife to cut them into single serve portions and froze them. The knife was really good, usually it's a cheapy thing with these kind of promotions.

My second stacking deal was on cereal. There are several layers to this deal.

Layer #1 - Kelloggs cereal is on sale for $2.49/box. Not a great sale, but a sale.

Layer #2 - wyb 5 boxes in one transaction you get a coupon printout for a free movie ticket upto $12

Layer #3 - if the boxes have the Cars2 codes you can enter them at the Kelloggs site for $5 in visa gift cards. 4 codes = $5. Each person can enter 30 codes.

Layer #4 - some of the kelloggs cereals can also be used for a rebate offer buy 10 get a $10 mastercard.

Layer #5 - coupons, and if the coupons were printed from the swagbucks site get 10 swagbucks for each coupons used

Layer #6 - some of the cereal comes with coupons for $1 off fruit wyb 2 boxes of cereal

Layer #7 - pay with discover card and get 5% back on groceries this month.

Layer #8 - get gas points to take .10/gal gas

So based on that information I bought two sets of 5 boxes of cereal. I paid $15.91 or 1.59/box. I got 2 $12 free movie coupons. I got 2 $5 gas cards. I got 4 boxes towards the $10 rebate. I used 8 swagbucks printable coupons. I paid with my discover card. I used the fruit coupon to get $1 of cherries for free.

I plan to do this deal two more times and finish up the rebate. I gave 4 boxes of cereal to my dad, I donated 2 and gave 4 more to my sister. I expect I will donate the rest of the cereal.

The last deal was on produce.

3.18 - 2 bags Fresh Express salad
1.10 - cherries
.99 - radishes
.58 - celery
-1.00 - $1 off fruit wyb 2 kelloggs cereal
-1.00 - 2 .50 q's for fresh express salad
-1.00 - $1/$5 produce

I finished reading my books The Deep Blue Goodby by John D. MacDonald. Mystery - pretty good.

And African Ice by Jeff Buick. Adventure - pretty good.

    Wow, that's just under 70 cents a pound for your steak. Good going! And to say I'm impressed on the cereal layers is an understatement!
