Super Savings Saturday – 6/24/17

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday. This week was all about pet food. At two different stores, I stocked up on cheap food for the critters. Other good deals included free food, free lotion, and free first aid supplies.

Rite Aid:

4 packs of Band Aid gauze, regular price $2.79 plus Buy One, Get One 50% off. Total: $8.38 plus $10.00 Plenti Points. (Others mentioned on some deal sites that they received an additional $2.00 Catalina coupon with their purchase. I didn’t, but this price is good enough for me.)

2 Beneful dog food bags, clearance price $4.14. I used two $3.00 manufacturer’s coupons. Total: $1.14 each!

Walmart:

4 Aveeno lotions, regular price $2.97. I used four $3.00 manufacturer’s coupons. Total: Free!

2 Hood plain cottage cheese, regular price $2.89. I used 2 free product coupons (sent to me in a mailer as part of a promo). Total: Free!

Since we’re discussing Walmart, I wanted to mention that my store has discontinued price-matching completely. I always found it annoying and complicated, but I’m kind of sad it’s no longer even an option.

Petco:

Whole Earth Farm cat food, regular price $6.49. I used a free product with any purchase coupon. My paid purchase was a can of Friskies wet food. Total: $0.99!

Super Savings Saturday – 6/10/17

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday.

I’ve taken the past two weeks off from shopping due to a lack of good deals and honestly not needing to buy a single thing (this is why I love my stockpile so much!). Of course, I can’t take too big a break from couponing without missing it terribly. Luckily, CVS and Rite Aid had enough goodies to lure me back in.

CVS:

I did multiple transactions to roll.

Transaction #1:  2 Garnier Full & Plush shampoos, sale price $3.50. I used 2 $2.00 manufacturer’s coupons. Total: $3.00 with $3.00 ECB!

Transaction #2: DiGiorno mini cheese pizza, raincheck price $3.00. Total: $3.00 with $3.00 ECB!

Transaction #3: Just the Basics 4-pack toilet paper, regular price $3.49. I used my $3.00 ECB and paid $0.49!

 

Rite Aid:

I originally went in for a moneymaker on Schick razors. Apparently, everyone else had the same idea because there wasn’t a single pack left in the store. That was crummy, but finding an unadvertised sale on soap made up for it.

2 Q-tips travel packs, sale price$1.27 each. Total: $2.54 with $2.00 Plenti Points! (These are so handy to take on vacation.)

4 Cetaphil Cleansing bar soap, 3-pack, clearance price $3.07. I used 4 $3.00 manufacturer’s coupon. Final Price: $0.07! (I have no idea why this was insanely cheap, but I sure was excited to find it. I prefer liquid to bar, so this will probably be a donation.)

Local Produce Store:

4 cantaloupes, sale price $0.89.

1 green pepper, clearance price $0.19.

Pack of zucchini and summer squash, 5 total, clearance price $0.69!

 

Have you found any freebies or cheapies lately? I’d love to hear about it!

 

Super Savings Saturday – 5/20/17

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday.

Good deals were abundant this week. Since I was blessed with more time and energy than I usually have, I took full advantage and shopped ’til I dropped at store…after store…after store!

CVS:

4 Ragu pasta sauces, sale price $1.00. I used two $1.25/2 manufacturer’s coupons. Total: $0.38 each!

2 Colgate Sensitive Smart White toothpastes, sale price $3.99. I used two $2.00 manufacturer’s coupons. Total: $3.98 plus $4.00 ECBs! 

Dunkin Donuts:

Free sample of frozen coffee (extremely small size, but the taste was good.)

PetSmart:

Free bag of Nutro dry dog food (These were given out free to the first 100 customers.)

Hannaford:

Chuck steak at $2.49/lb was on my list. I changed my mind when I stumbled onto an unadvertised Manager’s Special on skirt steak at only $1.99/lb! Normally, that type of steak is around $9.99/lb, so it was a huge savings.

6 packs of skirt steak, total: $22.89! (We ate two for dinner and the remainder were marinated and then put into the freezer.)

JC Penney:

Free $10.00 off $10.00 or more purchase coupon. (The store was mobbed, so I’m saving it for later).

Walgreens:

I did 6 separate transactions since you can’t roll Register Rewards for identical items.

6 M&M caramel candies, sale price $1.25. Total: $7.50 plus $7.50 Register Rewards!

Super Savings Saturday – 5/13/17

Welcome to another edition of Super Savings Saturday.

Since I was on vacation last week, I had a lot of laundry and housework that required my attention. That didn’t leave much time for shopping, but I did manage to make it into two stores for a few freebies and cheapies.

Market Basket:

This was a normal grocery run for almond milk, produce, and some bread. The only really good deal was on split chicken breasts at $1.29/lb. I lost my receipt, so I can’t do a complete price break down (Yes, it was one of those days!), but the total was right around $40.00.

Rite Aid:

When a new product is launched, I love it, because it means high value coupons will be available. Scoring 4 boxes of FREE Playtex was awesome.

4 Playtex Sport Compact tampons, sale price $3.50. I used 4 $2.50 manufacturer’s coupons. Total: $4.00 plus $4.00 Plenti Points! (Playtex is my sister’s fav brand, so I am sending them to her.)

4 V8+Energy Mango drinks, regular price $1.19. I used 4 $1.00 manufacturer’s coupons. Total: $0.19 each! (I think V8 is repulsive in the extreme, but my man loves them.)

2 Milka Oreo candy bars, regular price $1.15. I used 2 $0.55 manufacturer’s coupons. Total: $1.20 plus $1.00 Plenti Points! (The deal was Buy 2, Get 1 Free. My store only had 2 left total. Even so, it’s a good price without the 3rd bar.)

2 Arm & Hammer Sensitive Skin laundry soaps, sale price $1.99. I used 2 $1.00 manufacturer’s coupons. Total: $0.99 each!
