Chicken Chili

Chicken Chili

Cook up a twist on traditional chili with this Chicken Chili recipe from www.drugstoredivas.net.The cold days that we get here in North Carolina are far and few between. It seems that 70 in January is the norm. That’s too warm to make chili, but we were lucky to have a dip in the temperature so Pete could make this amazing chicken chili.

Yes, I said a dip in temperature was lucky. It was about 40 degrees. It wasn’t cold like the New York winters we’re used to … and believe me, I don’t mind. This mild winter, it cuts down on my soup days, but it cuts down on my jacket wearing days too, so it’s a good trade off.

If you’re still having cold days, you’re gonna want to try this chicken chili.

Harris Teeter: Five Coke 12-Packs As Low As $.60 Total (That’s A Penny A Can)

Harris Teeter: Five Coke 12-Packs As Low As $.60 Total (That’s A Penny A Can)

cokeSoda is so expensive. We don’t buy it ever because at $6.79 at 12-pack (that’s our price at Harris Teeter), we just can’t afford it every week. Better to make it in the Soda Stream.

But this week, soda is so cheap at Harris Teeter. You can get it as low as a penny a can.

This week (ending 2/5), if you buy two 12-packs of Coke products (including Fuze tea), you can get three for free.

That’s already a good deal.

If you listened to me and picked up the free 12-pack coupons from My Coke Rewards, you can use two of them to pay for the full price ones. Now, they’re $6.79 at Harris Teeter and the maximum value on the coupon is $4.99, so it will only take off $4.99. But that’s okay.

Now, to finish the deal, you have to sign up for Ibotta. It’s a mobile app where you scan your receipt and your products and you receive money back via PayPal. There is a $.75 rebate for Diet Coke, Sprite Zero, Sprite, and Coke Zero. That adds up to $3.

Got all that? Now, onto the deal.

The Deal:
Purchase:
$6.79 — Diet Coke 12 pack
$6.79 — Sprite Zero 12 pack
FREE — Sprite 12 pack
FREE — Coke Zero 12 pack
FREE — 12 pack of your choice (must be a Coke product)
Total: $13.58

Coupons:
$4.99 — My Coke Rewards free 12-pack coupon (max. value of the coupon is $4.99)
$4.99 — My Coke Rewards free 12-pack coupon (max. value of the coupon is $4.99)
Total: $9.98

Total after coupons: $3.60

Then, scan your receipt and get back via Ibotta:
$.75 — Diet Coke 12 pack
$.75 — Sprite Zero 12 pack
$.75 — Sprite 12 pack
$.75 — Coke Zero 12 pack
Total: $3

Final total: $.60 for five 12-packs, which is a penny a can. It’s also 98% off retail.
