Walmart Peelies Deals

The web and my email box is just buzzing with ways to save at Walmart today! I thought I would talk about peelies and how you can use them to your advantage at Walmart.
What are peelies?
In case you never heard of them, peelies are simply coupons that are attached to the outside of the boxes, jars, bottles and other packaging on products. You can peel the coupon off and bring it straight to the register for your savings.
Why use peelies at Walmart?
Although you can find peelies practically anywhere grocery products are sold, I especially like to use them at Walmart. This is for two reasons. The first is that there seem to always be a high number of peelies available at Walmart. It is a real great treasure hunt when you go through the aisles and spot a shiny peelie just poking out there on the shelves. The second reason is that Walmart allows you to combine the peelie coupons with other manufacturer coupons. This means that you can greatly increase your savings and even get products for free. Most grocery stores that I know near me don’t allow the use of more than one coupon per product, no matter what it is.
Because peelies seem to be there for the taking, many shoppers will grab the peelies off if the box but then not buy the product. They may save the peelie for a time when the product goes on sale or comes down in price. This is considered bad etiquette and can make others pretty angry. Why? Well, sometimes people plan their shopping based on knowing that particular products contain peelies and expect them to be there when they get to the store. Also, sometimes peelies that aren’t used immediately never get used, wasting the deal.
Okay, give me a peelie deal
The best way to save with peelies is to combine them with the sales and coupons. For example, right now you can get an entire box of the Taco Bell Dinner kit for only 28 cents when you combine the 75 cent peelie on the box with the $1 off 1 Taco Bell coupon that is in the current (June) All You Magazine.
