The Daily Digest for Thursday: FREE Weekly CVS Item, FREE Beyond Burgers, Great Deal on Mrs. Meyer’s Dish Soap, Safeway $5 Friday + 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.

Happy Saving!

NEW Deals – Quick List!

The Daily Digest Thursday, 6/24

  • WOW! Starting this week, get a Freebie EVERY week at CVS for 6 weeks! From nail clippers to veggie chips, there are some nice free goodies. In-store AND Online! Details and the full list of freebies by week in my post HERE:
  • FREE Beyond Burgers Tomorrow! If Sprouts is included in your offer, use the $2 Sprouts app coupon for a moneymaker. Or, use a $1 or $2 Beyond coupon for a moneymaker. Details here:
  • Reminder: FREE Just Egg!
  • Chipotle: Win Chips…or a Tesla.
  • I was doing some midnight baking of my banana oat cookies, took a shortcut and made bars instead. Worked great! Used same recipe, don’t even measure anymore. These have bananas, raisins, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, maple syrup. I didn’t have any of my freezer applesauce thawed, so just used more bananas. Equally good as midnight snack and breakfast. recipe HERE:

  • Sprouts: Stock-up Monthly Deal on Lightlife – Pay just $1.50 ea. for Smart Dogs + More! As low as $.18 per Veggie Dog. Details here under Refrigerated/Frozen:
  • Safeway $5 Friday is Tomorrow! Talenti $1.25, Chex Mix $.60, Strawberries $2.50 + More! Scroll to the bottom of the Safeway post for details.
  • 🌽🍉🥕Be sure to check my list before making your shopping lists! Sales can be regional, I’m in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’m always happy to look at your store’s flyers and cook up additional deals too! Just ask. 🙂
  • Including a Lightning Deal (don’t usually in Digests) as it’s a good one and still lots of time left: WOW! Lightning Deal on Mrs. Meyer’s Dish Soap. I use and love this stuff, vegan and cruelty-free. A year ago, the shelves at my Target were empty of all these products. Several scents included in the deal.
  • In Today’s Deals – Hippeas! Nice discount on these.
  • Great Deals on Cake Beauty/Personal Care Products! Part of a Buy 3 for the Price 2 Sale. This is an oatmilk lotion. Other products included, Cake is vegan and cruelty-free. You can search for a particular product in the sale, or search the entire list. I’ve had a few requests to include more non-food products. Sometimes it’s hard to find out if a product is vegan and cruelty-free, they can be one and not the other. Hopefully, there are some vegan/cruelty-free favorites of yours included, too. Let us know what you find!
  • There’s a BIG discount on this Jason Tea Tree Oil, and it’s included in the Buy 3 for the Price of 2 Sale! States cruelty-free. The only ingredient is the oil, so I’m assuming it’s vegan as well. (Update in comments, verified vegan).
