Ooh, this was fun!

Thanks to coupons from DogsRKids2, I was able to finish out the Olay deal this week on my card - thanks again! Here's how it went:
  • 2 Dove chocolate bars (forgot to put in pic!) - 2 for $1 and had scanner coupon for BOGO = $0.50
  • 2 Olay face washes $5.99 each - two $3 coupons = $5.98
  • CVS hand sanitizer spray - $1.79 - got coupon for a free one from scanner = FREE
  • CVS trial size cotton swabs - $0.50 - $2 CVS Skincare coupon = $1.50 overage
  • Coupons used: two $3 Olay, free coupon for sanitizer, $2 CVS skincare, $1 ECB
  • Total was $1.70 and got back $10 ECB for Olay

A&P has triple coupons this week and I was very happy with how I did. My total was $0!!!




  • 2 Hellmann's mayo - raincheck for 2 for $5 - used two $1 coupons (5/18 RP) = $3 for both
  • 4 Excedrin PM and 2 Excedrin Back & Body - $1.99 each, used six $2 coupons (see post below for details on how to find coupons) = $0.06 overage
  • 3 Daisy sour creams - $1 each - $0.60 coupon (6/1 RP) x 3 = $0.80 overage on each = $2.40 overage
  • 3 Ragu pouches of sauce - $2.49 each - $0.75 coupon (5/18 RP) x 3 = $0.24 each
  • 3 jars Bertolli sauce - $2.99 each - $0.75 coupon (5/4 RP) x 3 = $0.74 each
  • Lipton Pure Leaf tea - $1 - $0.55 coupon (found on tearpad at CVS) x 3 (only tripled up to $1.39 for some reason) = $0.39 overage
  • Total was negative $0.58! I told the Customer Service girl not to worry about it, that's good enough for me. :) Plus I'll submit for the Excedrin Back & Body rebate!
  • Got back $1 catalina, $1 catalina, $1 catalina AND $5 catalina for Excedrin deal! The deal was for a $5 catalina when you spent $10 worth, so I'm not sure where the extra ones came from. I had to go to the Customer Service desk to get my catalina, so she saw all of them print and still gave them to me - yay! To get the catalina to print, she had to re-ring the Excedrin and then return them. The machine printed a $1 catalina and a $1 coupon on the return - she gave me these too! I also got three $1 Excedrin A&P coupons (will combine with manufacturer's coupons when I do this deal again...I'm thinking on Sunday so I can pick up my papers too).

Triple coupons? WOW! You did a great job!

so do they triple all values or just up to a certain amount?

They triple up to $0.99 (unless the coupon says "Do Not Double"). You can triple four of the same coupon in the same transaction. The only catch is that the regular prices at A&P are high, compared to other stores in my area, so its hard to find freebies, even with triple coupons. Now if only ShopRite or Pathmark would triple...I haven't seen that in AGES.
