Adventures in Couponing - Bargain Hunter

Hi friends!  Don't forget to check out my Scrappy Garage Sale for some great deals on scrapping stuff!

Today, I went out in search of good deals and found some!  I got a great tip from The Krazy Coupon Lady that you can get Dentyne gum at Target for $0.04!!!  Seriously!  That's worth a trip.  I found a few other deals to take advantage of and I'll share them with you.

First, I hit Target to get the gum.  The deal was a 3-pack of Dentyne Pure gum that's on sale in the store for $1.79.  I double checked to be sure the price was correct and it was!  Not all Targets have the same sales, so always double check!  I had a store coupon for $0.75 off a 3-pack of Dentyne Pure, which dropped the price to $1.04.  Then I had a manufacturer coupon for $1.00 off any 3-pack of Dentyne gum.  Final Price: $0.04!!!  And that's all I bought.  I went into Target and spent less than a nickel.  That has NEVER happened!  Pretty proud of myself.

My next stop was Walgreens.  I use Dove deodorant and I'm on my last stick, so I was looking for a deal.  There was a coupon in this week's circular for Dove deodorant for $1.99.  I also had a coupon for $2.00 off any stick of Dove deodorant.  So I tried to use both, however, it wouldn't work.  Using both should have made it free, and even have them owe me a penny.  I think the problem was that I didn't buy anything else and the register won't let you check out with a negative balance.  So, I ended up just using the $2.00 off coupon, which made the final price on the deodorant $1.81.  Which is still a good price for it, but next time I'll be sure to get something else for less than a dollar so I can get the deodorant for free.  In fact, I'm going to try to find another $2.00 off coupon online and see if I can get the deal this week. 
*Lesson Learned: Always be sure you have a positive balance at the register to be able to use all of your coupons!

Last stop was Safeway.  This deal ended today so I'm glad I studied the circular this morning!  With your Club Card, if you buy 2 12-packs of Coke products, you get 2 free....AND you get two free boxes of Nabisco snack crackers.  REALLY?!?!?!  One 12-pack alone is $5.99.  I jumped on it.  So I got all of them for a final price of $11.98!  I saved $18.96!  61% savings.  That's fantastic! 

That's the first time I saved more than I spent and I did it at all three stores!  And it's all on stuff we're running low on and that we use.  Go me!

Got all this today for a total of $13.83!
