250 Personalized Address Labels for only $.99 shipped!

Office Depot has a one day sale going on right now for 250 personalized address labels, regularly $9.99 for only $.99!

To get this deal, first log into to or create an account at Shop at Home. Then search Office Depot and click through to the website. They offer an additional 2% back on your purchase. You don't have to go through Shop at Home to get this deal.

Once on the Office Depot website, you will see a banner on the homepage for this deal. I had issues getting to the promotion through this banner, it said the page did not exist when I clicked the banner. If this happens to you, go here to get started creating your labels.

Once checking out, if the cost doesn't automatically change to $.99, enter in code 854758859. You do have to pay tax on these, but my order came to only $1.08 for 250 labels - what an awesome deal! This deal is good today only, so order now if you want some.

$.50/1 Fresh Pineapple coupon!

Coupons.com has a $.50/1 Del Monte Gold Pineapple coupon available right now. We rarely see coupons for fresh produce, so I'd suggest you print it now - I'm sure it will be gone soon. Remember you can print this twice.

Use this coupon at King Soopers or Safeway to get $1/1 fresh pineapple since they double manufacturer coupons. I love coupons like this as we rarely see them!

Reader Update on the Safeway Deals...

Carmen left this awesome comment on the Safeway post, but I thought it had so much information on it, that I'd post it for everyone to see. Thanks for all the great information Carmen!

The Frozen Buy 4, get 4 mix and match. These are the sale prices that I can remember of the top of my head.

Starbucks Ice Cream, 1.99, there is a printable Q or a Safeway load to card Q, good for two..makes them 99 cents each.
Klondike Bars are 1.49, no Q that I used
Popsicles are 1.39, no Q that I used

Also part of the deal are Breyer's Ice Cream; Ben and Jerry's; and various other ice creams. Most of them are around 3 bucks but I think there are some coupons floating around.

CHEESE: Be sure to check all stores for sale prices on the Kraft Natural Cheese. I found them on sale at Safeway and on Clearance at Target. Apparently, they must be changing the style of bag because I was informed they will not be restocked after this sale in that same form.

FREE SUNKIST: 2-liter bottles on sale for 99 cents at Safeway. Q in SS 5/9. It says good only at King Soopers but is a manufactuer's Q and the cashier did not have an issue with it.

CHEAP Salad Dressing: Kraft salad dressings are 1.49 this week. 6/20 SS has a Q. Makes it 49 cents!!!

CHIPS: Kettle chips, They are on sale for 2.50.
6/13 SS has a Q...which makes them 1.50 each!

CHEAP Seasoning: Morton's Season-All on sale for 1.50. There was a Cellfire and Shortcuts Q to load to card or 6/20 RP has a Q that makes it 50 cents!!!

LUNCHMEAT: There was an in-store Q on Foster Farms lunchmeat which was BOGO Free. I got two packages, used two Q's and spent 1.70 for two or less than 80 cents apiece!!!

Happy Shopping!
