Current ACME deal - Stocking Stuffers and Christmas gifts?

I am behind on posting anything about the current ACME ad, mostly because it hasn't been working for me the way it suppossed to. And I HATE the idea of telling someone about a hot deal and then having it not work.

But let's take a look at the GM deal:

Get $15 OYNO coupon and Free Milk wyb any 10 Participating General Mills Breakfast products. FYI the milk coupon is for $4.50 off (it will take the full $4.50 off)
Participating products include: All General Mills cereals, Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks, Nature Valley Granola Bars, Milk & Cereal Bars, Fiber One Chewy Bars, Fiber One Toaster, Caribou Coffee Bars, Chex Mix Bars, Curves Chewy Bars

Cereals on sale 2 for $6 include:
Original Cheerios 8.9oz
Honey Nut Cheerios 12.2oz
Lucky charms 11.5oz
Reese’s Puffs 13oz
Trix 10.7oz
Golden Grahams 12oz
Cinnamon Toast Crunch 12.8oz
Cocoa Puffs 11.8oz
Cocoa Puffs Combos 11.7oz

Fruit Snacks & Bars 2 for $6
Fiber One Toaster Pastries $2.49 each

Now, you are probably saying, but you got all that cereal last week, why is this even something to give a second look? Well, last weeks deal was pretty much just on the Chex, this week is all the GM cereals AND it adds in the Fruit Snacks.

In my house fruit snacks are a treat, a rare treat (we really try and focus more on fresh veggies, fresh fruits, cheese and yogurt). But my girls love them, my friends kids love them, and they are perfect for having in the purse/car for the on the go longer then you thought you would be treat, or for the movies.

Also, Christmas is coming. Instead of stuffing the stocking with things that get broken, or breaking the bank, how about throwing in some of your childs favorite fruit snacks? I picked up some yesterday that were Sipderman and Tonka Trucks- how cool!

And don't forget, use your coupons!

Now, history, would have us know that this deal should work off of shelf prices. I have to admidt though, I have tried it 3 times, and it has only worked once. So if you are going to do it off shelf prices, be sure to read up at Hot Coupon World, for the latest on what is working and what isn't.

I have bolded the Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate, the Hunts Snack Pudding and the Orville Redenbacher Microwave Popcorn, because these are all great for stocking stuffers, and the hot chocolate and popcorn are also great for holiday gift basket giving! Have some hot chocolate, box of popcorn, and a movie or blockbuster gift card and you have a really nice gift! Pick up some cute holiday mugs (at our favorite Dollar Tree!) and you have an even better gift!

I really appreciate all the work you put into your blog. I saved 93 dollars and spent 200 on my shopping trip to Giant last week. Thanks again.

This was a great week for buying items for the food drive. I think that they are sick of seeing me! Lol.
