Using up Bonus Bucks

A&P
  • Sure Max deodorant $4.49, used $2.50 coupon (from previous rebate) and will submit for TMF rebate = $2.50 profit
  • 2 Finesse shampoo/conditioners $1.50 each, used two $0.75 coupons (5/17 SS) = FREE
  • 3 Healthy Choice lunch meats $1.99 each (clearance price), used two $1 coupons (5/17 Parade) = $3.97 or $1.32 each *I would have used a third coupon but it would've made my total negative
  • 10 La Yogurt yogurts $3.88 or $0.38 each
  • America's Choice milk $1.19
  • America's Choice noodles $1.29
  • Used two $5 catalinas, total was $0.91
Let me tell y'all, I'm really getting pretty sick of shopping lately, but I have all these rewards that keep expiring on me! These catalinas expired tomorrow, so I needed to put them to good use. I have a bunch more A&P catalinas, but they are all rainchecks that don't expire for a while, so there's no rush to use them up. I also have some Walgreens RR's that are expiring on 5/29, so now I have to figure out a plan to use those up. Sometimes shopping is such hard work!

i wanna feel bad for ya, but all the jealousy of all the catalinas you get is creeping up again lol!

Seriously, it is hard work. I had a 10.00 ECB expire on me sunday. I ran in monday to get my favorite manager to let me use it anyway. The curse of having 2 cards. I don't know how you do it.

Shopping is hard work- but fun sometimes. Good luck spending all those bonus bucks.

The Scotch tape is 2/$3 at WAGS until 5/30. I've also been buying 9pk Quilted Northern t/p (used $1 Q). HTH

Amiyrah,
It really is work! Planning the deals, getting your coupons ready, going to the stores and hunting for the items, keeping track of the rewards. Sometimes it gets overwhelming.

Angie,
I agree, it can be fun too.

Pubbler,
I have so much tp lately from all the free Marcal coupons that I hate to buy any more. I have a couple ideas, we'll see what the stores have in stock. Thanks for the tip about the Scotch, that would be a great filler.

Just got back from WAGS & they had the Big scotch tape rolls clearanced to $1.69. Check the stationery aisle. The whole aisle was clearanced.

Pubbler,
Ooh thanks! I'll check that out on my lunch break. I'm going to call you my Tip Meister! :)

I know it is hard work and very tiring, but I do wish I could get some of the deals you get. Living in a rural area does hurt when you wanna shop! My gas prices are creeping up again. :(

Lisa,
I've noticed gas is going back up again too. I think that tends to happen in the summer, right?
