WOW!!! HEB is ON FIRE with deals!


I keep missing Kroger LESS and LESS these days, seriously! I did NOT realize WHAT I was missing at HEB by shopping Kroger for so long. So a heartfelt thank you to Kroger for forcing my hand to shop around!

Now, on to the HEB deals.  Some you have already read on this blog, but hey I shop for up to 4 households so I do a great deal of repetitive deals (especially if they are money makers, free or very close to it!)
I did this in 2 transactions and scored a few money makers along the way.
Here is what I did

Transaction #1 :
1 Revlon 4 color eye shadow $4.38
3 Revlon eye shadow $3.36 each
2 Neutrogena soap $1.97 each
3 Energizer 8 pack(with blue MAGIC card) $5.97 each
2 Energizer 4 pack $3.57 each
1 Similac ready to feed $5.07
3 Creamy Creation ice cream $4.48 (not pictured)
1 $10 gift card for HEB
= $71.96

-4 $3 Revlon cosmetics YQ (B coupons!)
-4 $2 Revlon cosmetics inserts 5-8 SS
-2 $1.50 Neutrogena $1.50 YQ
-5 $1 Energizer inserts 5-1 or 5-22 SS
-$3 Similac insert 2-27, 4-3 or 5-1 SS (ALL EXPIRE 5-31, we also got $5 off but I was out!)
-$5 Similac formula check (they don't say they cannot be combined with manuf. coupons. only specify that formula must exceed value of check which they did!)
-$10 yellow coupon for free gift card for buying $25 worth of participating products
-3 $4.48 YQ for free ice cream wyb participating Energizer batteries
= $12.52 OOP
Earned $10 HEB gift card and will earn $10 for the 3 codes on Energizer!



Transaction #2 :

3 Revlon eye shadow $3.36 each
2 Neutrogena soap $1.97 each
3 Energizer 8 pack(with blue MAGIC card) $5.97 each
2 Playtex Sport $3.95 each
1 Similac ready to feed $5.07
1 Heb freezer bag $1.97
1 $10 gift card for HEB
3 Creamy Creation ice cream $4.48 (not pictured)  
=$70.31


-3 $3 Revlon cosmetics YQ (B coupons!)

-3 $2 Revlon cosmetics inserts 5-8 SS
-2 $1.50 Neutrogena $1.50 YQ
-3 $1 Energizer inserts 5-1 or 5-22 SS
-2 $1.50 insert Playtex 5-22 SS
-$3 Similac insert 2-27, 4-3 or 5-1 SS (ALL EXPIRE 5-31, we also got $5 off but I was out!)
-$5 Similac formula check (they don't say they cannot be combined with manuf. coupons. only specify that formula must exceed value of check which they did!)
-$10 yellow coupon for free gift card for buying $25 worth of participating products
-3 $4.48 YQ for free ice cream wyb participating Energizer batteries
= $14.87 OOP
Earned $10 HEB gift card and will earn $10 for the 3 codes on Energizer!

So final tally: $12.61 Money Maker!!!!! SWEET!  I am loving HEB more and more every day!

The Revlon eye shadow is a $1.64 Money Maker per each with yellow coupon and $2 insert
The Similac were $2.93 Money Makers per each with manuf inserts and $5 formula checks
Energizer and Energizer Playtex deal was featured here and here.

*MANY of these coupons expire 5/31 so do NOT sit on these deals
Revlon lasts longer, must most others do not

* Keep in mind the default setting on the $10 GC through Energizer is for the $10 donation to the Forest fund. If you want the $10 to come to you, you will have to change the default to be mailed to you or paypal to you (just stating this as a good friend trusted her daughter to enter the codes and get her rebate and instead donated to the Forest fund (while that is noble, that is NOT what friend had in mind!, thanks for the laugh Kim, and sorry about your $10)

i didn't think you could combine heb coupons with manufacturer coupons...i'm referencing the revlon money maker! will you clarify? thank you!!

Sara, most HEB coupons cannot be combined since they have an M on them, which stands for Manuf. coupon. However, HEB also puts out S for super coupon and B for Big savings coupons which are considered store coupons and CAN be combined with manufacturer coupons. This is clearly stated in their online posted policy here http://www.heb.com/page/weekly-ads/ads-coupons/coupon-policy (I suggest you print and carry with you for those cashiers who have not been trained properly)

Thanbks for clearing the YQ confusion up for me, it had me stumpped as well! Is the neutragena part of the battery deal or was this something you just picked up?

Stephanie (aka zoeys_mom, ZM) said...

Neutrogena was something I just picked up since it is a really good price after coupon :)

something happened today, that's NEVER happened to me before. I followed your lead and bought 3 energizer batteries, 2 playtex tampons and 3 creamy creations. As I go to check out I stop a manager and ask how they will do the $10gc? she helps me find one and then ask me if there's a deal. I explain it to her and her eyes light up:) She goes with me to the register, my total is $21.44. SHe's just in awe that I got all of that and have the $10gc +will get the $10debit card. I ask her if she minds if I do it another time or two? what does she say? "Oh my gosh, THANK YOU for buying this here..it almost brought a tear to my eye! So, with her standing over a cashiers shoulder I repeated the deal 2 more times.
So, I just wanted to tell you Thank you, too!

Do all HEB's allow for overage or does it depend on the store? I just tried the revlon deal and they would not allow me the overage.

Stephanie (aka zoeys_mom, ZM) said...

Heather I have not had a problem getting overage at any HEB I have been too. I am sorry your store gave you issues.
