I own a chest freezer and it’s always nice to have some extra space if my regular refrigerator/freezer is filled to the door. It enables me to stock up when frozen foods go on a good sale. Like this week.

  • At Weis, black Angus top round London broils and Swift Premium slow cooker pot roasts are each buy-one, get-one free.
  • Thomas’ Foodtown has Tilapia fillets for $3.99 per pound
  • Wegmans has a Club Pack of 10 skinless, boneless chicken breasts for $1.99 per pound.
  • Redner’s Warehouse Markets has whole, bone-in pork picnic roasts buy-one, get-one free.
  • There’s also the awesome buy-one bag of Pede Cheese Ravioli, get-two bags free deal at Price Chopper. If you have the space, I encourage you to buy one.

Don’t own a chest freezer? This deal is for your consideration: Price Chopper has an intriguing offer this week. Buy a Haier 5-cubic-feet chest freezer for $199.99 and you’ll get coupons for free frozen items valued up to $200. So you can stock that baby up soon after you plug it in and get it cold.

Shur Save sure has a fine offer this week for those who buy a 2.5 pound or larger boneless chuck roast. Use your Gold Card and the store will throw in a three pound bag of Russet potatoes, two pound bag of Shurfine cooking onions and one pound bag of Premier California carrots for free.

While at Shur Save, grab a bottle of Purex laundry detergent for $1.99 and use the $1 off one coupon found in today’s Times Leader to pay just 99 cents.

Take a gander at the Rite Aid circular today. Tucked inside are four pages of high value coupons that can can be used with your Wellness + Card. There are some big savings to be had if you use them.

Target has a deal that you can see on the back page of its circular. Buy four items from a select list that includes Crest toothpastes and mouthwashes and get a $5 store gift card at checkout. There are coupons for these items in today’s Times Leader inserts, so clip, shop and collect.

CVS has Gold Emblem brand bagged jelly beans for 99 cents and you’ll get 99 cents in Extra Bucks printed on your receipt if you use your Extra Care Card.

But all the news from one of our favorite pharmacies is good.

Word has reached me that the popular Green Bag Tag program is ending at CVS. In the past, you were able to earn $1 in Extra Care Bucks after every four times you brought in a reusable bag with a CVS Green Bag Tag affixed and had it scanned with your purchase.

I have used the tag religiously and have earned at least $25 in Extra Bucks since I got my bag tag — which by the way I purchased for 99 cents and got 99 cents back in Extra Bucks — and am sad to see it go.

I received the following email from CVS spokeswoman Erin Pensa on Friday:

“CVS/pharmacy will be phasing out the Green Bag Tag program later in 2013 in order to focus on other environmental initiatives which we believe will have a greater impact on our local communities. Specific information on timing and future plans will be announced at a later date. While the Green Bag Tag is no longer for sale in our stores, current cardholders can continue to use their cards until the official end of the program. We will be contacting customers who are actively using the program with more details in the near future.”
