Another Gift Card Promo

Its nice to know people!  One of da boyfriend's friends is a plumber and he was nice enough to come over today and help out with a bunch of projects.  DBF picked up the supplies at Lowes and his friend did all the work!  So very kind of him.  Since we knew we'd be spending money at Lowes (will it ever end?) I picked up two $100 gift cards at ShopRite this morning.  For each $100 I bought, I should get a $20 reward valid for next week.  I say "should" because nothing printed like a catalina would, the money is supposed to come off your order automatically next week.  The circular said limit one, so I bought one on my card and one DBF's card.  That money will really come in handy.  Knowing that we'd be moving soon, I hadn't been buying many perishable groceries and I only have two bags of chicken breasts in the freezer.  SR has ground beef for $1.99/lb next week so I'll be picking up some plus whatever else we need.  I may pick up another $100 gift card tomorrow morning (I have a couple of extra Price Plus cards lying around somewhere) so that would be another $20 of free groceries.  We've been spending so much money lately, now we're going to buckle down and build up our savings again.  Bring on the rebates baby!  

Here's what I got at ShopRite this afternoon:

  • Bananas $0.49/lb
  • Potatoes (5 lbs) $1.49
  • 2 Freihofer Country Breads $1.99 each
  • Thomas English Muffins $1.99
  • ICBINB $3.29 - was running low, normally wouldn't pay this price
  • Used $10 catalina (from Pantene), total was $1.79
I meant to also pick up Marcal napkins ($1.34, $1 coupon in the 11/6 RP) but last night, for whatever reason I threw away my shopping list!  I was really tired and I guess I thought I was done shopping.  So even though I had my Marcal coupons with me, I totally forgot to pick these up.  I'm going to do my first Price Chopper trip tomorrow so I'll swing into SR too.

Lately the gift card deals have been amazing! I don't think I've ever seen so many promos at once before.
