The Daily Digest for Thursday: Safeway $5 Friday, Amazon Deals on Nutritional Yeast, Blue Diamond Almond & Sun Butter, Half off a Rescue Pet Check-Up Center+ Much More for Less!
You can check out previous Daily Digests too, I keep a week’s worth of deals here.
I’ve changed the format of this a bit to make it easier for you to QUICKLY see the NEWEST Deals for the day (or Weekend Wrap-Ups.) I was struggling with how best to keep some of the previous deals around that were still good, without making it cumbersome to find that day’s New Deals. It seemed a shame to just delete some of the deals after a day that were still really good and long-term. But, I also want you to be able to quickly check on the newest ones, too! So, deals from the SAME day (or weekend wrap-up for 3-days) will be at the very top. Deals that you may want to reference later will follow.
In my Penny Pantry Facebook Group, I post many deals & info. throughout the day including freebies, deal updates & changes, Amazon Deals, meals & recipes, food discounts I run across + more! Some are more timely than others: the Amazon Warehouse Deals tend to come and go quickly, so Facebook is a good platform for me to let you know about those deals quickly.
Posts here on my website take longer to write and deliver, so I primarily use it for Weekly Grocery Deals, and other deals I think you may want to reference later. But, I’d like to bridge that gap as not everyone is on Facebook. Plus, it may be nice to have the Daily Deals together, as the Facebook feeds don’t run exclusively chronologically.
So, I’ll try this out and see how it goes! Please let me know if you think this will be useful as a companion to my Facebook posts. And, if you’re on Facebook and haven’t joined our group yet, I hope you will join and become part of our active, supportive vegan community! <3 Amy
Note on photos: Some may be illustrative of a product, but not the actual product. For example, I may use a general photo of apples I took to report on a sale on apples.
NEW Deals – Quick List!
The Daily Digest for Thursday, 7/29
- Safeway: Bagels $1.49 for a 6 pack this week, (pictured above) just $.24 each! You can stock-up at this great price and freeze right in the bag.
- Safeway $5 Friday is Tomorrow! Save on Grapes, Large Avocados, Chips + More! Scroll to the end of this post to see all the vegan deals included
- Safeway: Vegan Doritos Just $1.66 ea. Tomorrow!
- Safeway: Mr. Penny Pantry did a quick trip for Weekly Deals. Total paid $15.45. (pictured above, third of the $15.45 was for the blueberries!) These are all in my New Safeway Post.
- I am very impressed with the blueberries I got from Safeway, they’re sweet and not bitter as some can be. This is a Weekly Deal, $5 for 2 lbs. Blueberries are easy to freeze too, unlike prepping strawberries and cherries. Great price per lb. if you want to freeze some to have when prices go higher. I freeze them on a tray 1st, this prevents them from sticking together in a freezer bag or container.
- Early Holiday Shopping? This Little Tykes Pet Checkup Set is 50% off at Target! My daughter would have loved this when she was younger. Comes with two Rescue Pets, too.
- Sprouts: FREE Store Pickup with just $35 minimum! Requires a promocode, details here in my post
- Are you taking full advantage of your Prime membership? From FREE Audiobooks to FREE Whole Foods Delivery, don’t miss out!
- Get a FREE Trial of Prime Video. Have you tried Prime Video? Thoughts? (Full info. on what is included in comment link.)
- This may be a better price per jar than your local stores. We’re peanut-free at our house, and we use this and Wow Butter the most as a peanut butter substitute. SunButter Natural No Sugar Added Sunflower Butter with hint of salt (Pack of 6).
- Bulk Buy on RED STAR Nutritional Large Yeast Flake, 6 Pound. This isn’t the best price per lb. I’m currently seeing it, but it’s not far off and a much better price per lb. than many others. Highly-rated, too!
- Good Deal on these and other flavors in regular Amazon: Blue Diamond Almonds Oven Roasted Dark Chocolate Flavored Snack Nuts, 25 Oz Resealable Bag (Pack of 1). Note: All of the Blue Diamond Almonds at this link are vegan EXCEPT the Salt & Vinegar one.
- Thursday Deal of the Day on this Ninja AF150AMZ Air Fryer XL that Air Frys, Air Roasts, Bakes, Reheats, Dehydrates with 5.5 Quart Capacity.
- This “Fast, Easy Cheap Vegan” cookbook just came out in March, authored by the blogger Sam at “It Doesn’t Taste Like Chik’n.” I am planning to make her seitan tenders this week, and started looking at this book and really like it! I don’t think I’ve ever cooked a recipe for $10, though, with the way I shop. Most of my homemade dinners cost $.50 per plate.
- This is FREE right now with Amazon Audible! The VegNews Guide to Being a Fabulous Vegan: Look Good, Feel Good & Do Good in 30 Days,
- Make lattes at home! This Espresso/Cappuccino Maker will pay for itself after only a few uses. It’s similar to one I use, see comments.

You can likely look up prices online, too, for comparison.
