Triples, again? I can't believe it!

A&P - triple coupons this week (again!) I was almost not going to bother, but I saw some great deals online and just had to run in for a quick trip.
  • 6 bags A&P brand shredded cheese three for $4 = $1.33 each = $8 - I know, I know, you're thinking - more cheese? Seriously? Well, don't say I didn't warn you! :)
  • 4 loaves Arnold 100% Natural soft bread $1.99 each, used $0.55 coupon (10/12 or 11/9 SS, tripled to $1.65 each) so $0.34 each
  • Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta $1.50, used $1 coupon (10/5 SS) = $0.50
  • 8 Knorr sides $1 each, used four $0.75 off 2 coupons (11/16 RP, tripled to $2.25 each, profit of $0.25 for every two) and got back $1.50 catalina for next shopping trip = $2.50 profit
  • 4 Del Monte grapefruit cups $1 each, used four $1 coupons (11/9 RP - sorry, these are for the wrong size, you need the ones from the 9/21 Parade magazine) = FREE
  • Rayovac batteries $0.99, used $1 coupon (10/12 or 11/23 SS) = FREE
  • 3 Marcal toilet papers $0.99 each, used three freebie coupons (11/9 SS) = FREE
  • After DBF's mom's discount, total was $8.22

CVS
  • 6 papers $12, used $6 ECB and $6 ECB = zero OOP

goody! I didn't know they were tripling again! I guess i'll run by there tomorrow. I need more cheese and I think I have all of those coupons for the freebies. Do you think the ronzoni will get back down to 1.00 soon, since its priced at 1.50 now? I hope so....I have loads of the smart taste coupons.

Thanks again for the heads up!

You're welcome. :) I would think the Ronzoni might go back down to $1 again before 12/30. I only had one coupon and just felt like using it up. lol

Suz,

Did you have good coupons in yesterday paper? I only had a P&G insert that wasn't even that good.

Precious,
I just got the P&G insert also. I usually buy 6 copies of the paper, unless the coupons are really pitiful.

suz,

just wanted to give you a heads up after my awful trip to A&P today:

the coupon for the del monte grapefruit is for the 20.5 oz, not the 8oz. I know you use the self-checkout, so that might be why you got to use it, but make sure you let your readers know.

I was NOT allowed to get all of my lipton sides for free after triples. My cashier said that she could only triple it up to a 1.00 since one of the bags would cost a dollar, when it clearly states on a the coupon ".75 off 2 bags." I understand that she couldn't give me overage, but she didn't even give me the total amount off to make them free. So, I had to pay .50 for each bag. Thinking about taking them back but what's the point? I won't get my coupons back :o(

Just thought I'd let you know, especially about the del monte cups.

Amiyrah,
I found that out about the Del Monte coupons today too. I tried to buy more and the cashier rejected my coupons too because they were the wrong size. I think the ones I used the other day were from Parade magazine a while back, not the 11/9 RP. Sorry about that!

That doesn't make any sense about the Knorr coupons - she should have tripled them to $2 each, not $1. That really stinks.

Do you not have a self-checkout at your store? I run into so many fewer problems at the self-checkout than the regular lines.
