Thread Details

I see a couple of posts for www.giantpa.com, so I thought we could start an official thread and post deals here each week!!! heart

1. This thread is mainly for GiantPA stores and probably not the other Giant food stores outside of PA, which are related to Stop and Shop, as they have somewhat different deals.

2. It was decided via here http://forums.slickdeals.net/showthread.php?sduid=204770&t=1178007&highlight=giant+poll that the giant stores would get their own thread -- IMHO, up to the community if they want all Giant Food deals here, or just GiantPA stores here.

From my limited knowledge -- it seems the GiantPA stores and the other Giant stores are very different... Dontknow

FYI - The only stores in VA/MD that are GiantPA stores are those along I-81 Corridor in VA around Winchester to Waynesboro and also those in Hagerstown/Eldersburg in MD. Other Giant stores in VA and MD as well as DC and DE should check out this new Official Giant Food (DC, DE, MD, VA) Deals Thread. Hope this helps! (amorantin)

I'm a frequent Giant shopper, so will post a few of the upcoming deals for 2/22-2/28:

Perdue cutlets are BOGO
Perdue Breaded Chicken $1 (3-8-09) V 1/11/09


Giant whole chickens are 69 cents/lb. This is the lowest price I've seen in a while. Time to buy a couple chickens, roast 'em, shred the meat, and freeze it in small portions for later use in casseroles, quesadillas, enchiladas, etc. Big Grin

I just got a great deal on a mixture of cheerios at Giant. I got 4 boxes for a total of .80
Sale ends on Saturday the 21st. Giant has assorted varieties of cheerios on sale for 4 for $ 6.00, but you must buy 4. Amounts greater or less than 4 are $ 2.49 ea.

The Giant's in my area will double coupons up to 99 cents. They will only double the first of multiple coupons. So for example let's say you use 4 coupons that are .55 off 1 Banana Nut Cheerios, they will double the first coupon to $ 1.10 but the other three will remain .55. I used 4 different coupons so they all doubled.

Here's how I did it: Coupon
1 - box Banana Nut Cheerios - $ 1.50 - $ 1.10 = .40 ($ .55 Bricks)
1 - box Honey Nut Cheerios - $ 1.50 - $ 1.10 = .40 ($ .55 Bricks)
1 - box Apple Cinna. Cheerios - $ 1.50 - $ 1.50 = Free ($ .75 Bricks)
1 - box Apple Cinna. Cheerios - $ 1.50 - $ 1.50 = Free ($ .75 Smartsource)
That's 4 boxes for .80

Of course I went back and got another 4 boxes later today since I had printed these coupons twice. Hope some other SDers can take advantage of this deal.

Thanks, I hadn't thought of getting flavors. I like the plain Cheerios and probably will get some of those with the $1/3 coupon that was out recently. I know I have some banana nut Qs, too .... nice job working within the constraints of Giant's only-doubling-one-of-like-coupons rule! High Five

Move, what are you confused about? Not sure how to help you. Cuez laid out the scenario pretty nicely, I thought. If she'd wanted to buy 4 banana nut Cheerios, and given the cashier four of the .55-off 1 box coupons, the register would only double one of those coupons, per Giant's policy. Having different coupons for each box meant that the coupons would all double. You can get the printable coupons she used by checking smartsource.com and this thread.

I'm off to Giant tonight. Will be getting some of the Chef Boyardee pasta that's on sale 10/$10. At one of my stores, you get $5 off wyb 8. I have coupons for $1/5 cans (I think they're from the 1/4/09 SS). So, getting 25 cans. $25-$15 promo (8x3)=$10-$5 coupons=$5 for 25 cans, or 20 cents/can. These will be going to the local food bank. Thanks to coupon kung fu Pirate, I've been able to donate nearly $800 worth of stuff to the food bank in the last few months, at a cost to me of about $40.

Here are the Colgate Qs (from the alpha list of unexpired Qs, in this forum):
Colgate Advanced Whitening, Total Advanced Clean or Total Advanced Fresh only 4.0oz+ $1 (2-21-09) SS 2/1/09
Colgate Toothpaste Adult or Children’s 4.0oz+ .75 (2-21-09) SS 2/1/09

Also if you sign up for their weekly email, they always email coupons.. like 5 off 50, etc.

Thanks for starting this thread.Giant food is my main grocery store and it is sometimes hard for me to coordinate my coupons for the weekly deals.
Thumbs up.

Yes, this thread is for Giants in multiple states, but the deals often vary between stores in the same county, so I'm not surprised you have different deals. That said, I think that the same basic deals will cycle through all the Giants. The $4 off 4 Kellogg's deal has been offered frequently at my local Giants. Check the list of unexpired newspaper coupons--there should be some $1/1 Qs that could sweeten that deal. I have about 45 boxes of cereal in my pantry that cost $1 or less per box, so I have the freedom to pass up so-so sales and only buy more if it's 50 cents a box or less. Stockpiling rules! Big Grin

That's a good question. There seems to be so much variation just among Giants in my area ... ugh! I had a so-so run tonight. They aren't real great about shelf tags, and I tried to reproduce the Cheerios deal, but the .75/1 multigrain Cheerios Q beeped, didn't double, and they were going to deny it (it says one per purchase ... the old purchase/transaction misunderstanding again... sigh). Also, for some odd reason the .50/1 multigrain Cheerios Q from the paper didn't double correctly--only got 51 cents for it Confused So I ended up paying $2.24 for 4 boxes; not bad, but I was expecting to pay $1 for all 4. Head Bang

I have enough coupons to redo this deal tomorrow at another Giant, but I'm not sure if I'm up to it Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

I would love to take part in this deal but I have a cold from hell. So I will probably miss out. Hopefully Next week there will be some good deals.
