Big Profits at ShopRite

The deals at ShopRite this week are awesome! I love making money off food items! The catalinas that you earn for each deal are spaced out over a couple weeks. One is valid 3/6-3/12, one 3/13-3/19, one 3/20-3/26 and the final from 3/27-4/2. Each deal also gives you a coupon for a free reusable bag (valid until 3/12). The only catch with these catalinas is that you can only do each deal once per card. I've never run into this with a SR sale before, but I signed up for a couple "spare" Price Plus cards on their website to get around the problem. You'll be able to print a confirmation page that lists your club card number. If you're using self-checkout, just hit the "Enter Code" button on the screen and type in the number. This will act the same as if you'd swiped your card. You can use your catalinas all on your regular card. You just have to have a separate card when you're earning them.

I did these deals each three times, but all that stuff was too heavy to lug upstairs for my pic. So for simplicity's sake, here's the basic info:
  • 4 Dole Fruit Crisps $2 each, used four $0.75 coupons (1/9 SS) and 2 Dole Fruit Jars $2.50 each, used two $0.75 coupons (1/16 SS) = $4 and got back $12 in cats = $8 profit
  • 3 Splenda $2.99 each, used three $1 coupons = $5.97 and got back $12 in cats = $6.03 profit *This smaller size isn't listed in the circular, but it was marked in the store as being part of the promo. The cats printed each time I bought these so they definitely work.
  • 6 Ragu Pasta Sauces $8 (three for $4, be sure to buy two varieties to get the sale price on all), used four $0.30 coupons (1/30 RP) and Wishbone Dressing $2.50 ($2 if you buy two), used $0.50 coupon (1/30 RP) = $7.10 and got back $12 in cats = $4.90 profit
Definitely a fun day at ShopRite!

Staples - had a bunch of reward certificates that are expiring on 2/28 so I was very happy to see these deals. They are valid today only.
  • 2 Avery 8160 Inkjet Mailing Labels (750 pk) $11.99, $2 instant savings (sale price), used two $3 coupons and will get back two $9.99 Easy Rebates (Limit 2) = $6 profit
  • 2 Staples 96 Bright Multipurpose Paper (500 sheets/ream) $5.99, will get back $5.99 Easy Rebate (Limit 2) = FREE (just bought one of these for my account)
  • Staples Stickies 1 1/2" x 2" Notes (Yellow, 12 pk) $5.29, $1.29 instant savings (sale price) and will get back $4 Easy Rebate (Limit 1) = FREE
  • Total was $29.96, paid with rewards and the rest in cash
