Ok you discount queens, I have had a few people ask about how I did my Albertsons trip on Friday night, so here is the breakdown. (sorry it’s not a very good picture and you can’t see everything, but I will try my best to explain!)
Most of what I bought was stuff I could put in my freezer for those “in need” moments.
4 boxes of bagelfuls (my hubby loves these to take for bfast): $4 off $10 + (4) $1/1 coupon for each = 4/$2
2 boxes of bagelfuls/4 bags of Valley Fresh Steamers vegetables
$4/ off $10 + (2) $1/1 coupon for bagelfuls, (2) .60/1 coupon for veggies
3 boxes of Kashi pizza: $3/$15 automatically. (3) $3.00 off coupons (I got these a couple of months ago on a tearpad at Albies…I have one left if anyone is interested. I won’t use it.)
= $3/3 boxes of pizza
3 boxes of Crystal Light on-the-go packs: $4/$10 + (1) buy one, get one free coupon, (1) get .50/2 coupon (these are on a tearpad at the product)
2 digornio flatbread pizzas (2) $1/1 coupons
3 boxes Crystal Light on the go packs: $4/$10 + (1) B1G1, .50/2 coupon (tearpad)
2 california kitchen pizza flatbreads (2) $2/1 coupons
6th transaction: spend $25 get $10 for next transaction
6 Healthy Choice Frozen meals: (6) coupons, some were $1/1 some $1/2
3 egg beaters (3) coupons $1/1
2 Hebrew National Hotdogs: (2) $1/1
5 Albertsons recycleable bags .59/ea = 3.20ish
Ok, so basically, I didn’t do 6 separate transactions. That’s just how I broke them down in my mind. I did 1 transaction since I only had 1 $10 back from spending $25. (Otherwise I would have had to do a separate transaction to get my other $10 back.) The computer automatically took off the other amounts in the other promos doing it in one transaction.
I also had a 10% off $50 and a $7/$75 which I was able to use both.
Total before coupons: $141.70
– 10% = $9.20
– $7/$75 = $7
-$42.00 Manu. coupons
-$18.66 store coupons
Total savings: $122.97
Received $20.00 back. Here’s how: (2) $5 catalinas from ConAgra Promo and (2) “we value your opinion”, fill out this survey and get $5.00 back
Pretty sweet huh? THEN: I’m getting the car and the hubby calls and tells me to pick up stuff for smores that night, so back into the store I went and came across this deal:
Buy 3 Capri Suns, get a Nabisco multi pack for FREE. These coupons are peelies on the Nabisco product.
I wasn’t lucky enough to double my capri sun coupons last week, so I still had them. I also found a tearpad coupon next to some capri suns (they weren’t in the juice isle, they were on an end cap towards the dog food) for $1 off Nabisco snacks when you purchase 2 capri suns. Cha-ching!!
So I bought 3 capri suns, (3) $1/1 coupons and a multi pack of Oreo cookies (FREE) for $3.50! Saweet!
I also got my smores ingredients with a $5 catalina from the previous transaction. So my total OOP for the night was $21.43 with my $15 back.
Any questions??? 🙂
