Those of you in your 30’s and 40’s might recognize that quote by Hannibal from “The A Team.” Remember?! It always comes to my mind whenever something works out just like I had planned, and my trip to Safeway tonight was one of those moments. Yes!!!
I really only wanted the Life cereal from this deal going on, and wasn’t planning on doing it as there weren’t any coupons for them. That is until I was reminded of the MQ located in the Fred Meyer Extra Savings booklet by our reader, Vanessa. (Thanks!) It is for $3/5 Quaker items and is a manufacturer coupon and does not have a Fred Meyer logo on it at all. So I took it to Safeway with the hopes that it would work. Since I had to buy 5 Quaker items, I decided to purchase 12 items in order to maximize the Betty Crocker catalina deal as well as the $4 instant savings wyb4 deal.
Here’s my scenario:
(5) Quaker Life Cereal $10
(5) BC Fruit Snacks $10
(2) BC Fruit By the Foot $4
-$12 instant savings
– $3/5 Quaker
– $1/2 BC Fruit Snacks IP
– $1/2 BC Fruit Roll Ups IP
– $.40/1 BC Fruit Snacks IP
– $.50/2 BC Fruit Snacks from
– $.50/2 BC Fruit by the Foot Shortcuts ecoupon
– $.40/1 BC Fruit Snacks Shortcuts ecoupon
– $2 Safeway Double
Total OOP: $3.20 and received a $3.50 catalina!
The Quaker coupon didn’t end up scanning at all, but the cashier pushed it through as it is clearly an MQ. I suppose it will depend on the cashier, so YMMV. Go here for all the coupon links.
Breyers Ice Cream $1.99 on sale this weekend only
(2) Goldfish crackers $.99 each on sale this weekend only
paid with the $3.50 catalina
Total OOP: $.25!!!
I got home and showed my husband and he was almost impressed, which was good enough for me! That is, after all, one of the reasons why Angela and I started this blog, to share our coupon successes so we didn’t bore our husbands to death!
