Earth Fare Savings - Nutiva Coconut Oil

2 jars Nutiva extra virgin coconut oil - $5.75 each (reg. $19.49)
1-1lb bag of organic carrots - FREE with coupon

Ever have one of those days where you unexpectedly stumble upon the best deal ever?  I had one of those days yesterday!  During my lunch hour, I needed to make a trip to the bank.  Afterward, I decided to stop into Earth Fare, a regional health food store.  It was nearby and I had received a coupon via email for a free bag of organic carrots.  Can't pass up free organic vegetables!  I also decided to get a jar of organic extra virgin coconut oil while I was there.  The Earth Fare brand is pretty reasonably priced.  But as I turned on the aisle for the cooking oils what did I see?  Under the 29 oz jars of Nutiva extra virgin coconut oil a shelf tag that said discontinue and a price of $5.75!  Those jars are regularly priced at $19.49.  I couldn't believe my eyes - that's cheaper than the store brand!  So, I grabbed two jars because I've never seen Nutiva in store for that price.  Or any organic extra virgin coconut oil for that matter!

I have no idea if all Earth Fare stores are discontinuing Nutiva or just my local store.  But, if you have an Earth Fare in your area, and you use organic extra virgin coconut oil, it might be worth a look!  At checkout, the jars did ring up regular price.  But my cashier kindly verified the reduced price on the shelf tag and made the adjustment.  And these jars were located in the cooking oil section and not the whole body/supplement department.

  1. Great deals! Just out of curiosity, what do you use coconut oil for?

  2. Daisha - it can be used in cooking and baking. We really love stove top popcorn popped with extra virgin coconut oil! But you can also use it as a moisturizer for hair and skin. And even as homemade furniture polish.

  3. Thanks for sharing. Definitely gonna pop in and check at our E.F.!

  4. Those were great deals. Especially the coconut oil. I have a jar and use it sparingly since it was so pricey.

  5. These are indeed great deals! thanks for sharing all of these!

  6. Thanks for responding, Mary Ellen. I have used Coconut Oil as a moisturizer and for my hair. I have not tried cooking anything with it. I guess I'll have to look into this.
