Hy-Vee and Fareway Deals

It was suggested to me that maybe it would be helpful to post some deals that Hy-Vee and Fareway are offering each week. You can find a million wonderful blogs out there with Target, Walgreens, Wal-Mart and other stores but none for Hy-Vee or Fareway. Unfortunately we don't have a Kroger or CVS around here. But Hy-Vee and Fareway are pretty popular and I am sure there are others out there who shop there too!

Now, while I will be no expert on any of this I figured I would try it at least for a little while to see how it goes. I shop alot at Fareway. To be honest, I really don't do alot of shopping at Hy-Vee. I think they are quite a bit higher than most of the other places I tend to shop at. But, every once in a while they run some great sales. Like 2 weeks ago when I stocked up on shredded cheese at $1.25 a bag. Or last week when they had yogurt 3 for $1.00. These are the type of deals I will be sharing.

I tend to get the ads for both stores early in the week, so my goal will be to get the deals that I think are good up by Wednesday night. I would also like to ask for your help. If any of you see a deal that I haven't posted just shoot me an email and I will get it up ASAP. Sometimes I miss things that are great deals just because I don't pay attention and it doesn't interest me. I will try and post them all, not just ones that I will be taking advantage of.

I will give it a trial run and see how it goes. If I am really bad at keeping up on it then I will stop. Hopefully I will do ok. I just want to be able to help others out as well. We'll give it a try and see what happens.

Also, I wanted to know if anyone wanted me to put links up of blogs that list the deals going on at Target and Walgreens. I know there is a lot of them out there. I don't want to list the deals here on this blog but I would be happy to link you to a blog that has them. Let me know if this would be helpful.

Here goes...


  1. Since the first of the year of 2009 Hy-Vee has beefed up their ads. They reduce the cost of paper ads by also using a web based ad. Their pricing has been less than Fareway. They have really come out with some hot prices. Be sure to compare.

  2. Fareway will match competitor's sale prices. In most cases, they have already changed the price to reflect the local competitors.
