The Weekend Wrap-Up: FREE Alpha Breakfast Sandwich, All New Target & Drugstore Deals, Save on Halloween Pet Costumes, Safeway 4-Day Labor Day Sale, BOGO Beyond Meats + 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

Happy Saving!

This recipe looks great, I’m going to try these! Link to full cookbook in comments.

  • Target: I spotted lots of pumpkin spice vegan creamers and coffee today! These should be available to order online, too. We also have the FREE Target Same-Day Delivery offer this week.

  • Spirit 20% off Halloween Store Coupon – My daughter mentioned she used a coupon for her purchase, but I wasn’t seeing them on the website. Since many of you mentioned Halloween was your fave holiday, I wanted to get you a coupon! So, after a little sleuthing, I found out where to look. Instructions are in the Halloween Post I just started, I’ll be adding lots more here too:
  • Enjoying my $1 Taco Bell Freeze and bean burrito no cheese. Quick lunch while running errands. You can get any regular size drink for $1 during Happy Hour, from 2-5 PM daily.
  • Target: This week we have a Circle Offer to get a $10 Gift Card on a $40 Pet Care Purchase. TONS of stuff included! You can order online, and get the gift card.
  • Target: Some, but not all of the Cat Scratcher Houses are included in the Buy $40, Get a $10 Pet Care Gift Card Deal. Be sure to save the Circle offer! Pictured are members’ cats from The Penny Pantry. You can do the deal in-store or online:
  • Target – Free Core Bar! For this deal, stack a 50% off Circle offer with a 50% off Ibotta. I’ll add this to my Target Deals later too.
  • Safeway – Another Sneak Peek! Peaches, Nectarines & Plums will be $.97/lb. The upcoming week is really a good one, starts Wed.
  • Sprouts: App coupon for $1.50 off Lightlife Tempeh, Smart Dogs, or Smart Bacon. Pay just $1.79 ea. for the Tempeh or Smart Dogs! Online is showing some sale prices thru 9/28, coupon only good thru 9/02. See more Sprouts deals good thru tomorrow.
  • My BEST price for milks – Worth repeating! Recently, we’ve added their oatmilk to our regular buying habits, too. My BEST price for milk is at Costco. There are certain items that are nearly always the lowest prices out of all my sources, they tend to be staple items. I don’t mention these on a regular basis, as the prices don’t tend to fluctuate much. They are, however, a very important part of my grocery buying habits. I’ll make a point to highlight these more! Soymilk only $.91 per 32 oz. carton at Costco! We just stocked up on our milk for the month at Costco. These come in 32 oz. containers, the soy vanilla & plain almond 12 in a case, almond vanilla 6 in a case. The vanilla soy was just $10.99/case of 12. This equals $1.83 per gallon. This beats most other store sales with coupons. I also like that they don’t need to be refrigerated until open.
