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!|
