PC Triples!

I needed fillers for my Walgreens and Price Chopper purchases.  In both cases, I hadn't figured out ahead of time what I was going to buy and wandered aimlessly in the stores looking for something cheap and useful.  I kept looking at my watch, thinking of the time I was wasting and of my long to-do list for the day - which only added to the aimless wandering.  Adding to that, I've only been to this Walgreens a couple times.  I was pretty sure of how to get there, but was just starting on a different route than I've taken before when my GPS totally died on me.  So I spent another 10 minutes getting myself back to the route I was comfortable with.  I felt like I spent the entire day wandering around.  It was definitely one of those days where couponing felt more like a part-time job than a fun hobby.


  • 8 Crystal Lites $2 each, used four $1 off 2 tearpad coupons (found these a while back at ShopRite) and got back $5 RR (WYB $15) = $7 or $0.87 each
  • 4 Carlos V Milk Chocolates $0.39 - found these in the candy aisle
  • Used $1 RR, $1 RR, $3 RR and $6 RR, total was $3.26
Price Chopper - they're doing triples this week!  They'll triple up to four $1 coupons per order, with an additional $15 purchase.  I found the coupons in my Sunday paper, anyone know if they're available online somewhere?  ETA - here's a printable coupon!  Thanks Sheila

  • 2 Diet Pepsi 20 packs $5 each with in-circular coupon, used $2 off 2 coupon (4/29 Moments to Save coupon insert) = $8 or $4 each - will use these towards a $5 Bud NBPR rebate on many things including soda (32159) = $3 or $1.50 each
  • 4 Reynolds Parchment Papers $3.59 each, used four $1 coupons (3/25 SS) and four triplers = $2.36 or $0.59 each
  • 2 Minute Rice $2.69 each
  • Total was $19.07

Then at a different Price Chopper, I got - 

  • Sorrento Ricotta Cheese $3, used $1 coupon (2/12 SS) and tripler = FREE
  • 3 Alexia Sweet Potato Fries/Onion Rings $4.39, used three $1 coupons and three triplers = $1.39 each
  • 2 Ballpark Hot Dogs $3.99 each, BOGO sale and used $1 off 2 coupon (4/15 RP) and four Hillshire Farm deli meats $3.33 each, will use towards $8 Blue Moon NBPR rebate on $16 of meat/seafood (106141) = $8.31
  • Heavy Cream $1.79
  • 2 Whipping Creams $2.99 each
  • Milk $3.89
  • Total was $30.64

I read somewhere that they are on the website but I couldn't find them

Wow, we didn't get the triplers in the paper. We had to print them...

Sheila said...

Wow, you're Alexia fries are 50c more than ours!

The PC triple Q's were available on their FB page. I also got them in an email. Let me know if you don't find them and I can forward you the email...I need to figure out a trip there this week too. Not happy about the change in gas rewards, but figure I can still get a few freebies here and there.

Thanks Sheila! I know, the Alexia was a bit pricey but I love them so much. I've found that your prices are sometimes lower than mine. What can you do?

Absolutely, you save where you can!

This has nothing to do with your post :), but I was wondering if you have a copy of the Neosporin Essentials Rebate. I received a check for 1.59 because I used ups to pay...I need to call them. Thanks.

I found the #, the rep said no problem we'll send another check out within 4 weeks :)

Sheila - forgot to mention, the triple coupons weren't in the circular but rather on a full page ad elsewhere in the paper. I came across the first by accident and then had to hunt for the rest.

Do you keep a copy of all your rebate submissions? Its always a good idea, just in case the company says you didn't send in the UPC (when you did) or something like that, or when you need to contact them. I scan a copy of everything I send in and keep it on my computer until I get the rebate check in the mail.
