My shopping trips today!


Ok - man what a day!!! Here's my plan of action for this trip - use as many B1G1 (buy one - get one free) coupons as possible to get my total over $50 so I could use the $5/$50 coupon that's out there... There's a few snapples missing from the photo (found in the back of the tahoe tonight) and some packs of gum that found their way into kids' pockets...

One thing I paid $2 per package for was bacon made out of BEEF! Never heard of it, can't wait to try it. (I got 3 packages)

2 transactions - grand total OOP: $16.45 Total coupons used: $141.63


Also ran to CVS
- Wanted to take advantage of the Purex Sale ( I didn't have purex coupons though - darn it ) and use up my $10 ECB... I just haven't felt like CVS'ing lately, I'm not sure why though... So here's how I did

I used 2 B1G1 Candy Bars Coupons (.77 ea)
1 $1 off 2 Gold Emblem Candy (Pixie Stix were clearanced to .25)
1 $1 off 2 Gold Emblem Pretzel Coupon (.79 ea)
1 $3 off ANY Lumene Coupon ($2.99)
4 Purex @ $6.99 (B1G1 - so it's like I paid for 2)
1 "FREE" Kashi Item ($4.29)
1 $5 off $25 Coupon
1 $10 ECB

Total OOP: $1.16 Total Saved: $43.25


Last stop was at the Kroger! Just wanted to get the Playtex tampons while they were still "cheap" since I never seem to remember to stockpile these.

Total OOP: $6.65
I don't know how much I saved, I can't find that receipt... Somewhere around $30 maybe?
The Marcal was free though, Playtex was $1.99 after $1/1 coupon, and the hotdogs were like .40 each or something like that...

Where were the snapple coupons from?

Great shopping trip. I haven't been CVSing either...dont know why either. Don't know if I am burned out, stocked up enough or just bored with it.

Where was that 1st trip to? The one where you got all the snapple? Also I was curious too as to where you got those coupons? I haven't been cutting coupons for a few weeks and I'm behind on all my boards so I have no clue what the good deals are this week. Looks like CVS has a nice Sun/Mon sale coming up though.

I count 18 Snapples in the pic, which is 9 B1G1 coupons. How'd you manage to get so many? Limit 2 per comp. Also, have you heard about this Pepsi rebate deal??? Found it at Wags yesterday (first time I've seen it anywhere!).

I did all of my Kmart shopping in Plainfield Indiana... I got the Snapple coupons while I was on vacation (Pretty sure it was New Mexico) and I had 11 B1G1 coupons... My cashier didn't enforce the 4 per transaction rule... Pepsi rebate? I'm anti-Walgreens lol... fill me in. I have coupons for b5g1 from my grandmother's local grocery ad in Omaha...

The candy bars were free thx to the Blinkie found at Krogers...

I found the same Kraft Cheese Tearpad, but it's $0.50/1 - which is fine by me.

how did you get the marcal free?

cheapsk8mom said...

I had three of these:
FREE Marcal Small Steps, 4-roll Bath Tissue OR 3-roll Regular Towel OR $4.00 off any towel or bath tissue (5/31/09) SS #2 5/17/09

The product is only $3.48

The Pepsi Rebate can be found on the 2nd page of your CVS ad. CVS and Kroger both have Pepsi 2 liter for 4 for $5 and there is a $5 rebate on 4.

Hmm... I have some coupons from Omaha that are for b5g1 pepsi 12pk - I don't think I'll be using them... I think I have one or two...

I was thinking of maybe using at the Kmart since it's $1.80 a pk (5 for $9) and I figured it would double...

I'll have to actually look at my ads then, huh. :)

Kate said...

So if you use a BOGO coupon during double coupon days, you get both free???

cheapsk8mom said...

As long as the coupon is coded so that the cashier selects 2 items, and the coupon is $2 or less... yes. At least it has worked that way for me...

Here's the Pepsi rebate deal:

On the Pepsi display, there's a tearpad for a rebate good thru 06/17/09 (post mark by 07/17/09). Buy 4 - 2L bottles of Pepsi products, cut upc from bottle and mail in with rebate form and receipt and they send you a $5 rebate check. This was actually just at the display at Walgreens. Items do not have to be purchased there tho! I bought 4 bottles on sale last week for $1 each. Spent $4, getting $5 check! I've seen the display at my local grocery store as well, but haven't seen anything on any blog, which surprised me!
