Turkey Deal at Albies

When you purchase $25 worth of selected Kraft/Nabisco products you get $10 instantly off your turkey. They actually had a checklist for you so you knew exactly what items were included. It is on the front page of the ad as well.

Here's what I did:
4 boxes of Kraft Easy Mac (for quick lunch occassionally) 4 x $2 = $8
9 boxes of Triscuits and Wheat Thins (I wanted these for the holidays and super bowl)
In the same transaction I also purchased a 21 pound Village Market Turkey (get one over 16 lbs to get it for .38 cents per pound) for 7.98.
It took $10 off (even though my turkey was only 7.98) plus I had a $10 coupon from the ConAgra deal I did last week.

So all in all I spent
=13.98 Without the deal the turkey alone would have been more than that!
There are other items besides crackers and mac n' cheese. Cool whip, Oreos and more!

Enterntainment Book for $5 courtesy of SimplyMom

Thanks for the tip SimplyMom!

Anyway, the books retail for $25, but you can get one for $5. Here's what you do: Go to
and sign up for an account. This is a free site that gives you money back for shopping online-- they will either send you a check or deposit it in your Paypal account on the 20th of the month after your cash back balance equals $10. They will instantly credit your new account $5. Then scroll down and on the right hand side, you will see a link for Entertainment book (or select Entertainment book under "Shop by Store" on the left hand side.

This pulls up a page with coupons-- 20% off and free shipping or $5 off and free shipping. Click either one-- at least for Boise and Utah, the discount is the same. (These coupons expire Nov 30, 2008, so order soon). Then on the Entertainment books page, type in your zip code and it pulls up your local book. (These are also nice if you are traveling to somewhere for a couple weeks-- like CA, you can save quite a bit eating out).You can look through the different coupons here and see if you think you'll use it. So then when you check out it is $20, but $10 will be credited to your Cashbaq account, plus the $5 you got for signing up. So your final price for the book after the rebate will be $5.

(Entertainment books will let you add a 2nd book for $15, but you are better off placing a 2nd order through Cashbaq. If you use the first account you set up, your total will be $10, if you set up a new one with a 2nd email address, your total will be $5 again). With free shipping, I'm having my gift ones sent to my in-laws house so I won't have to worry about reshipping for Christmas.

(If you do very much online shopping, another similar site is I've used it quite a bit in the past. Some stores offer better discounts on cashbaq, some on ebates, so I just check both and use the best one to get money back. In the past year I've got just over $100 back on stuff I would be buying anyway-- If you do ebates, please put my email address as the referral and they'll give me $5. (janetcox123 @ I also always check to look for coupon codes, usually you can combine the coupon and the rebate.)
