This time it’s Dierbergs turn! Dierbergs is bringing back a shopper’s favorite–triple coupons.
The grocery chain will redeem manufacturer coupons up to and including 50 cents at triple their face value.
Triple coupons are a boost to the old shopping trip allowing shoppers to increase their savings when they use coupons.
But here’s the tricky part–the deal is good tomorrow, Feb. 12 through Monday, Feb. 18, 2013, the period Dierbergs’ weekly sales circular covers.
Here’s the fine print:
- There’s a limit of 15 coupons per household per day.
- Additional coupons will be redeemed at face value.
- Coupons over 50 cents will be redeemed at face value.
- See store for complete details.
The question is will Schnucks and Shop N Save will match the deal?
Shop N Save is bringing back “Coupon Thursday” this week. Although it’s called “Coupon Thursday,” no coupon is actually needed to get the deal.
And the deal is a sweet one. Spend at least $50 at the grocery store and get $10 off on Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013
Play it right and you not only get $10 off your purchase but get a discount on gas, too. Depending on how much you spend, you’ll get a discount on gas–3 cents if you spend $10-$49.99; 6 cents if you spend $50- and 9 cents when you spend over $100 for a maximum of 20 gallons.
Fine print: Certain items like fresh milk, pharmacy, beer, wine, spirits and a bunch of other non-food items are excluded. See the ad in the store, newspaper or online for details. And, if you’re shopping at a store that has gas pumps, you’ll get a coupon for 3 to 9 cents off your next gas purchase.
If you’re like me, maybe you’ve been tuning out those commercials on TV for “Februany”–Subway’s $5 footlong ad campaign.
But you should start listening. For a mere five bucks you can get a foot-long beef and cheese sub loaded with all kinds of veggies including olives and jalapenos with a splash of sauce.
But apparently the economy has caught up with Subway. In the past all of its foot-longs were $5 in February but while the list of $5 sandwiches is quite long, the roast beef (my fave), steak and cheese and chicken and bacon ranch melt are actually $6.
The deal is good all month until Feb. 28 at St. Louis area participating Subways.

There’s still time to see eagles in their natural habitat here in the St. Louis area before spring sends them north.
Bald Eagle Days at Pere Marquette State Park in Grafton, Ill. celebrates our national bird in February, the time the eagles travel south to areas where winter temperatures don’t freeze the rivers. The reason: the fish they can get from the free-flowing waters. The remaining dates for the eagle program this month are February 9, 10, 13, 16, 19, 25 and 27.
Naturalist Scott Isringhausen presents a great eagle program and leads free eagle tours where you can see the birds in their natural habitat.
