Skip to comments.The Coupon Whisperer: Cheap Dog Food and Some Great Body Wash Coupons
Posted on 03/22/2011 5:11:34 PM PDT by PJ-Comix
If you live in the Southeast, you're in luck. Starting Thursday, Publix will have a BOGO sale on 4 lb bags of Kibbles 'n Bits dry dog food. They normally sell for $4.99 but when you apply the $2 coupons from the Feb. 20 Red Plum they will only be about 50 cents each. This would be a good time to stock up on it. For only about 30 bucks you could have enough to feed your dog for a year.
However, if you don't live in a Publix area, there is still good news. This Sunday's Red Plum insert will have Axe shower gel coupons for Buy One Get One Free (BOGO). The only problem is that I have yet to see a store offer this item BOGO but there is always a first time. Even better news is that the April P&G insert will have a BOGO coupon for Gillette Body Wash and those I have seen BOGO in the stores so using your coupons on this item, you will get them for FREE.

I had a heads up on the next two weeks of Walgreens deal and so far nothing that gets me too excited. However, not to worry. The good deals always return.
Finally a bit of sad news. As of March 16, Walmart quit accepting Walgreens Register Rewards. That sure didn't take long.
Remember, the best way to keep up to date on all these great deals is to ask to be placed on The Coupon Whisperer PING List.

It's too gel'y, have you noticed?
It stays in the jel form too long & most of it slips right off your body & slithers away down the drain like a rabid red snake!
Maybe by design to help move more product?
Walmart screwed me over. I am going to have hundreds of those $5 register rewards.
I don’t have a freaking clue as to how I am going to use them up. Walmart pulled the rug out from under me.
It’s going to have to be some combination of the Colgate Money maker (with the 1.50 coupon) and something else.
Thank goodness the Almay doesn’t take up too much room because the Tena money maker is a space hogger.

Leave it to Walmart do mess up thing like that

Why on GODS green earth would anybody feed a dog that SHIT I am discusted at such stupidity and ignorance!
Hitler fed hamberger and sawdust as a staple ...so why kill your dogs with much the same !
Anybody that feeds their dog CHEAP food HATES! Their dog!
Quanity does not equal quality.
Therefore I hate coupons for cheap Shit.
Just imagine what I think of feeding children cocoa puffs..........

Rite Aid’s got a deal on the Axe. It’s 2/$9 with $5+UP when you buy $15. So, buy 4 for $9 with the BOGO coupon, get $5+UP and they’re a buck a piece. A bit pricey for body wash if you ask me, but nobody did.
BJ’s has the Purina One Beyond (better for the dog) for $3.99. Use the $3 coupon from the 3/13 SS and you’re looking at $.99 a bag. Not as good as the free Beyond cat food, but decent for good dog food.
BTW, now some dude is cursing you over dog food. What is it about these threads that attracts these weirdos?
Not all dog owners can afford to pay for more expensive brands of dog food.
Would you deny poorer conservatives the companionship and loyalty a good dog provides simply because they were unable to afford the “best” dog food, in your opinion?
While I do not condone the language and tone of Tigen’s post, he does make a valid point.
My MIL is a breeder and shows dogs for entertainment (she only has one litter a year, if that).
She has dealt with a lot of dog owners and breeds over the years and the vast majority of skin issues and other problems can be cured by using a better quality dog food.
Dogs can have serious allergies to the crap put in their food. The symptoms usually show up as red spots on the skin or crusty ears, but can also be more confusing. Many vets will mis-diagnose because of the random nature of the symptoms.
Purina One is generally pretty good, and they have enough variety to determine what the allergen my be (chicken, wheat, corn, etc). They are reasonably priced compared to the boutique brands that can cost twice as much.
Tigen, I happen to agree with you in the matter of cheap commercial dog kibble vs canine health. But you know, there is no need to belittle the OP. The Coupon Whisperer info is courteously provided for you to use (or not). This is a thread & obviously a ping-listing dedicated to saving money.
There *is* a doggie-ping list. I notice you are not on it. Perhaps you would like to join us at the most recently pinged thread?
You obviously have a strong opnion to contribute.
Not to hijack this thread regarding dog food quality BUT:
You are wasting your money feeding your dog a product like Kibbles & Bits or any other low priced dog food. You are also increasing the amount of excrament you will need to clean up.
Do not feed your pets any brand that the main ingredient is not beef, lamb, chicken or pork. Dogs can not digest corn and other grains and therfore they just poop them it out.
The most expensive brands cost more money per pound but you do not need to feed your dog as much.

I noticed WAGS had very little in this weeks Fish Wrapper. And they didn’t give me my $3 RR (Razor) when I bought one of their products that had it, BECAUSE I used the $3 coupon from Sunday’s Fish Wrapper.
There is no where in the ad that says they don’t do that, that I’ve found. Needless to say I won’t be going back to that WAGS, it was a new one for me to shop at closer to home.
So what should I do if this comes up again?
Now Rite Aid honored a $1.50 Butter Finger (Rite Aid coupon) fun pack, which they didn’t have on hand, with the Easter egg ones..so I got 2 bags for the price of 1 as I had 2 coupons. Made my chocoholic hubby happy. :-)
Geez PJ, last week you where destroying capitalism and ending civilization as we know it. This week you’re doggie-Hitler...busy guy.
Neuragen MIR to convert RR to cash?
I agree. My Vet says the Purina products are the best out of the less expensive brands. My dogs LOVE that Purina One.
It’s also really easy to cook for your dogs, which I also do. Rice, veggies, hamburger (any lean meat, really) cooked down in chicken stock makes a great kibble topping. My dogs love cooked carrots for some reason; gravy or not, LOL!
Homemade dog biscuits are easy to make, too. I have a recipe for making them in the bread machine. Super-easy.
My cats get Iams because it really cuts down on the fur balls and to not put too fine of a point on it, they poop out less because it has no filler. It’s worth the price for that fact alone! I HATE cleaning the catbox but it goes with the territory with indoor cats. *SHRUG*
You can try to use them at your grocery store. They are manufacturers coupons. I’ve used them at my Jewel (Albertsons) store a couple of times already. I just hand them over along with any other coupons and they’ve gone through. It doesn’t hurt to try it.
I am in ready agreement that dog food that is primarily meat-based (lamb, chicken, etc) is far better for dogs than grain-based dog foods.
However, the ideal is not always possible, though I would hope that a dog owner provides the best food for his dog which he can afford.
Given the demographic of many gym attendees in California, that "goo" may not be what you think it is.......just sayin'
Our dogs used to eat Kibbles and Bits; however they both have gone to their maker. The German Shepherd spit out the little orange pieces; the birds got those. Good product!
please remove me from your list, sorry
Not your fault. I don’t use many of the items you go for, and most of your stores aint in my area. Oh well, thanks for the fun.

You could donate the Almay Makeup and make $1500 just from buying it.
Of course, then you have to figure out what to buy with that $1500.
You might have trouble spending it since the next couple of weeks at Walgreens looks sort of lame.
Last week’s coupons were pretty much garbage. I didn’t even bother stocking up.
The Almay deal was awesome this week, but you’re right the deals have been rather boring lately.
Who cares? They obviously have a genius working for them. They have one that smells like CHOCOLATE.
The Costco brand dog and cat foods are pretty good, I think. First ingredient is chicken, not chicken meal. Good prices, too.
Just yesterday, I brought home Blue dog food, and oh my goodness, my dog is now in heaven. I never really thought to check the label of ingredients, and when I did, it really opened my eyes.
I thought Beneful was being generous to my dog, until I saw “corn” and “flavored” this and that.
But honestly, I never knew before this past week, and I believed I was being a great human owner.
I now know better. But I don’t fault owners if they can’t afford real food dog food. We really can’t either, but I’ll sacrifice and find sales.
I have got it planned out on how to roll some of it
Colgate plus speedstick plus filler will equal $5 after manufacturer’s coupons- get back 5
The big cost will be those 1.50 Colgate coupons.
Will also use some of it up on M&Ms 4 bags for 2.60 after working the Mars Easter coupon combined with Snickers Egg deal.
Yep. Always read the labels! :)
Lady’s speedstick or men’s?
Thanks for the tip! :-)
Finally found a Spring Beauty Guide. The cashier didn’t take the book or coupon. Is that coupon reusable?
1.99 get back 1.00.
there is a .50 coupon.
Yes it is reusable.
The Beauty Advisor is getting $1.00 for eyeshadow so make her your friendly cashier by buying all the eyeshadow. Just make sure she realizes she is getting a buck for them.
One more question. The Speed Stick deal is for next week’s ad?
“The Beauty Advisor is getting $1.00 for eyeshadow so make her your friendly cashier by buying all the eyeshadow. Just make sure she realizes she is getting a buck for them.”
Hate to keep bugging you but I’m a little confused.
Are you able to buy more than one Almay product at a time? I tried to buy two, as a test, and only got one RR.
Only one at a time if you want the 5.00 RR. You have to do separate transactions but the BA makes a buck for each eyeshadow she sells.
