Yup! That's what I said! I saved 36% on my grocery bill this week. I scored some AWESOME deals and saved a lot of money on stuff I would have bought anyway. I can't tell you how much yogurt I've bought without a coupon. Or how many ketchups I bought without thinking twice. But THAT is a thing of the past. Here are some highlights of this weeks shopping trip!
I went to Coborns as they do Double coupons on Tuesdays through April. (it's something they do pretty frequently actually) ***Beware though, they only double up to 10 coupons.***
Heinz Ketchup. Priced at $1.99. I had a $2.00 off 1 coupon. So in theory I made a 1 cent profit. However the girl told me they could only scan the coupon for $1.99. Oh darn right? FREE
Lawrys Marinades. 96 cents each with Penny Pincher Coborns Coupon. PLUS I had a 50 cent coupon that doubled to $1.00 I got two of these so I made 8 cents on this deal. FREE + 8cents.
Food Club 1 Dozen eggs. 98Cents with penny pincher coborns coupon. PLUS I had a 55cents of 2 coupon that doubled to 1.10 off 2. for a total of 43 cents for each dozen of eggs. (perfect for coloring eggs for Easter!)
I spent a total of 98.24. And I saved 53.92. I can handle that. ALL on things I would buy anyway. I just got the name brand instead of generic this time!
I was also complaining yesterday on Facebook about Coborns double coupon policy. The woman told me that I can only double up to 10 coupons. Which was true. I was irritated because I would have done two transactions or I would have chosen different coupons to double. But when I really sit down and look at my receipt I noticed two things. 1. That I THOUGHT when it says they double up to $1. I thought that meant if I had a coupon for 75cents, they would throw in 25cents to make it equal $1.00. But that is not the case. I had some $1.00 coupons and they gave me the full amount so I got $2.00 off on those coupons which is a pretty good deal. 2. I was irritated cause I would have picked out the highest coupons to double since I could only do 10. Again after looking at my receipt, I noticed that their system actually does that for you! So it went though and only doubled the 10 highest coupons! So I actually ended up saving more money than I thought I would.
So the lesson here: LEARN YOUR COUPON POLICIES PEOPLE!
