I hit some great deals at the grocery store again this week...
1 bag of sunchips - FREE
2 packets of taco seasoning - FREE
3 bagel bites snacks @ $0.33 each
3 packages of lunch meat - @ $2.23 each (normally $3.99)
2 yoplait yogurts @ $0.29 each (normally $1.19)
1 can sweetened condensed milk @ $1.69
3 boxes of ziploc bags @ $1.26 each
1 box kashi cereal - FREE
6 boxes of cereal - FREE plus overage
bananas @ $1.06
chuck roast @ $6.37
I'm sure you all are thinking "SIX BOXES OF COLD CEREAL?! WHAT?!" [grin] Believe me, I'm thinking the same thing. We don't eat it that much, but I was being paid to take it!
Here's the scoop:
Our local grocery store had a deal of buy 6 boxes of General Mills cereal and not only would they automatically deduct $10 from your bill, but they also would give you a coupon for $9 in free dairy products! So...after coupons the cereal cost me $14.44. Minus $10 brought it down to $4.44, then with the $9 for milk/dairy items, they paid me $4.56 to take six boxes of cereal home!
The total was $76.98, but I only spent $26.95.
And after a $5 rebate for the ziploc bags and coupons good for $9 in free dairy products next time,
the total comes to $12.95!
A savings of $64.03!
