Shaws sales and coupon matchups - 12/11-12/17

You may have noticed that the Shaw's circular this week includes a coupon for the "Pick 4 for $19.99" sale - I just want to say how much I DISLIKE this promotion when it happens, it's so rare that the stuff included in the sale is actually worthwhile. Here's the thing: you are paying $5 per item - so unless you're getting at LEAST 3-5 pounds of meat, it's not really a deal. If you decide to go for it, here are the guidelines I'd use:
**Perdue Roasting chicken - 5lbs or more only (avg $1/lb)
**Fresh ground beef - 2.5 lbs or more (avg $2/lb)
**Fresh Ground turkey - 3lbs or more (this says it's for 3lb package - $1.66/lb)
**Frozen Chicken leg quarters - 10 lb bag ($0.50/lb - GREAT DEAL)
**Perdue Breaded chicken - 32 oz bag use $1/1 Perdue coupon from 10/18 RP

Nothing else on their list meets my criteria - I'd suggest stocking up on the leg quarters and ground turkey.

UPDATE: Went to my store today - when I asked where the Perdue chickens were, they showed me but said they weren't stickered with the "pick 4" label because they were "over the weight limit" and the register would just take $5 off my total order. WHAT??? I asked to speak with a store manager, who said they would honor the sales flyer regardless of the price (apparently they received the wrong chickens, but as he said, "that's our problem, not yours"). BUT YOU MAY RUN INTO A PROBLEM. If you do, have a sales flyer with you and point out the following:
- The exact wording states "pay only $19.99 for 4 packages in a single transaction REGARDLESS OF INDIVIDUAL PACKAGE PRICE". They cannot impose their own rules about weight limits or price caps.
- The flyer makes NO mention of restrictions, "while supplies last" or "limited quantities". So if they don't have the product you want, you CAN ask for a rain check.

They also have a P&G catalina deal - buy $15 worth and get $5 OYNO (about 33% off the list price). Here are some coupon matchups to sweeten that deal:
