Easter Sales From Chicago Shopping

Original_Amelia-Mullen-easter-ant-tablescape_s4x3_lgCredit: www.chicagoshopping.com

Easter is early this year, but not to worry: A whole season’s worth of deals on everything from basket stuffers to hams to clothing is packed into March — so hop to it.


Jewel-Osco: Ham coupon

There’s a coupon on the front of the Jewel ad for $10 off a whole ham, any brand. The ad says that this coupon would make a 9-pound Jewel-brand shank portion ham just 59 cents a pound. But the secret to using this coupon is, the smaller the ham, the lower the per-pound price. So if you can find a ham priced around $14 or $15, it would be a real steal at only $4-$5 with the coupon.

You have to make a separate $25 purchase to use the coupon.

Dominick’s: Even better ham coupon

Not to be outdone by Jewel, Dominick’s put a $12 ham coupon on the front of their ad. Like Jewel, Dominick’s is requiring a $25 separate purchase. It’s good for store brand, Smithfield or Paula Deen hams, and like Jewel, the coupon would bring a medium-sized store-brand ham down to 59 cents a pound. But again — the smaller the ham, the better the deal.

Sign up for coupons at HoneyBaked Ham here.

Here’s an idea for using a printable coupon to get Hot Wheels cars — great basket stuffers — for only 80 cents apiece at Dollar Tree, courtesy of the blog Couponing for 4.
