Our reader Lynnea found these items in the clearance section of her Big Lots. Her cashier stated that when an item gets to a month before expiration date they go 50% off and when they get to 2-3 weeks they go 75% off!
She scored 2 boxes of 20-ct. Quaker Cranola Bars for .88 each and a pack of Chips Ahoy for .55. That’s only $2.30 with tax for 40 granola bars and Chips Ahoy!
The expiration date isn’t really an issue because you can freeze both of these items – Lynnea is going to freeze them for her daughter’s school lunches
If you have a Big Lots near you it’s worth a look – let us know what you find.
The Nutri-Grain bars were B3G1 Free (-$2.50) and she did (2) Buy 5, get $5 off deals (-$10.00) plus she used various coupon she got from Kelloggs Family Rewards emails.
Way to go Lynnea!
NOTE: this shopping trip was done this past Tuesday – the “Buy 5, Get $5 off” promo has ended.
