Satruday Shopping Spree!

October 1, 2008
By

Went to Walgreens, CVS, and Target and decided after this trip that I would try and keep things to a minimum on checking out and WATCH CLOSELY at the transactions.
It seems the cashiers get real confused when you have multiple coupons.

So I don’t have pictures of these transactions from Saturday.

3 Bottles of Garnier Fructis Shampoo – 6.99 each
These bottles are the big 25oz bottles and they also had a Free jar of the Deep Conditioner (this jar normally retails for 6.99 also)!

Total: 20.97
Tax: 1.59
Total: 22.56

Used the $3.00 Easy Saver (double dipped from the OCT easy saver) = 9.00 off
Used 3 $1.00 MFG Q’s = 3.00 off

22.56 – 12.00 = 10.56 out of pocket

Wait a minute – it gets even better – Since I purchased 20.00 in Garnier Shampoo I qualified for the 10.00 back rebate on the September Easy Saver Catalog!

SOOOOOO…….10.56 – 10.00 rebate = total out of pocket $ . 56!

Gets even better since I chose to have my rebate on a WG GC I get 10% more
Which gives me a net back of $.44 when all is said and done!

WOO HOO!

2nd Transaction

I made another trip to Walgreens and here is how I did on my second trip:

2 bottles of Garnier Fructis Shampoo – 13.98
With Bonus free jar of Deep Conditioner!
2 bottles of Pert Shampoo – 6.98
1 Box of Zantac – 4.99
4 Snickers – 1.00
______
Sub Total: 26.95

Tax: 1.69

Total: 28.64

Coupons:
1.50 Pert MFG Q
1.50 Pert MFG Q
4.99 Zantac MFG Q
1.00 Garnier MFG Q
1.00 Garnier MFG Q
6.00 WAG ESC Garnier Q
5.00 WAG ESC Pert Q
20.99 Total Discounts & Coupons

28.64 – 20.99 = Total OOP 7.65!!!!!!!!

Receipt said I saved: 23.77

CVS Transactions:

4 Pepsi – 4/11.00 – 11.00

8 cans of Alpo – BOGO – 1.19*4 = 4.76

4 Alpo – .79 = 3.16
1 CVS Coupon – 2.00

Total OOP – 11.65

ECB’s returned – 3.00 (used it on my second transaction below)

Receipt said I saved 17.68!

Transaction 2:
5 gatorrade – 5.00
6 Kashi trail mix – 15.00
5 SouthBeach Diet Bars – 12.50
1 magazine – .99

6 Kashi 2.00 Q’s = 12.00
5 SBD 2.00 Q’s = 10.00
1 CVS ECB – 3.00
1 CVS 4/20 – 4.00

Subtotal – 6.49
Tax .48
Total OOP – 6.97

Wait – I got an ECB for the 5 gatorade of 3.00!

Adjusted OOP – 3.97!

My receipt said I saved 51.94!

I know I made several rookie mistakes – one of which is not using the right $/$$ off coupon – I had a 3.00 off that I could have used on the 1st transaction.

Second Lesson learned – do SMALLER transactions if possible!

It seems it is less likely to cause issues at the register and things seem to move quite a bit quicker.

Now we go to Target:
Bear’s Transaction (We did this on Sunday the 21st as well as Saturday):

One Bag of Purina Dog Food – 20.99

-4.00 CPN = 16.99

Total w/ tax: $18.37

Scored a $5.00 Gift Card.

My Transaction:

5 South Beach Boxes – 2.41 = 12.05
5 Kashi Trail Mix boxes – 2.69 = 13.45
1 Listerine (big bottle) – 4.50
(The Listerine had a small bonus bottle with it.)!
1 Bag Purina Dog Food – 20.99
Subtotal: 50.99

5 South Beach MFG Q’s – 10.00
5 Kashi Trail Mix MFG Q’s – 10.00
1 Listerine MFG Q – .50
1 Purina MFG Q – 4.00
Gift Cards (Used 2 from last Sunday and Bear’s from 1st Transaction) – 15.00
Total Discounts: 29.50

Total OOP – 14.01!

Well, that was my Saturday Shopping Spree!
