This week at Giant Eagle, it’s time to bake up some brownies, boil some pasta, and stock up on…feminine products. Here are “the best of the best” deals happening at GE this week…

And don’t forget…Giant Eagle now accepts competitor’s coupons (Target, Kmart, other grocery stores, etc.), although these coupons will not double. GE does double all other coupons (clipped and printed) up to 99 cents.

Sign up for GE eOffers to virtually “clip” coupons to your advantage card that can be stacked onto paper coupons.

And don’t forget the Black and Gold Bucks, Steeler fans! If you buy 7 participating products in one transaction, get $7 back at the register to spend online at the Steelers Sideline stores. Click here for a complete list of participating products.

DeLallo Pasta is BOGO (or $1.49 each)
