I did it! I spent $55.27 out of pocket, used $42.56 worth of coupons (manufacturer’s & eCoupons) and used $63.67 in Club Card Savings.
Here are the details:
- One $10 Kohl’s cash printed
- No matter how diligent I am in keeping track of my total, I’m always wrong. This time I was off by about $3, which is pretty good considering how many manufacturer’s and eCoupons I used.
- The Breyer’s $2 catalina did not print
- The Home For The Holiday’s catalina did not print. This was my scenario:
5 Betty Crocker Frosting = $9.95
2 Progresso Broth = $6.50
1 Gold Medal Flour = $1.50
2 Breyer’s Ice Cream = $5.98
1 Bisquick = $2.50
Total = $26.43
Total OOP = $9.51 after store sales, coupons & eCoupons
Totally sweet, if only it would have worked. Several possible reasons why the cat didn’t print: only 2 out of 5 Betty Crocker Frostings counted towards the $25 and I counted on $9.95 applying; only 1 out of 2 Progresso Broth counted; the Breyer’s doesn’t count (it’s not tagged at my store).
I used probably 20 internet printable coupons without any problems at all — and several were identical (legit coupons, not copies) — (5) $.50/1 Betty Crocker Frosting coupons, (2) $.50/1 Progresso Broth coupons. Those of you who are running into problems with your store accepting multiples and doubling IPs really need to find a more coupon-friendly store.
Despite my two catalinas not printing, I am happy with my purchase. I would have spent close to $40 just on the diapers at Costco and I scored a bunch of “real” food too. I will also get a $5 rebate from SC Johnson on the Glade candles & refills.
I’m planning to do another Home For The Holidays promo along with a Post Grape Nuts deal once my Grape Nuts coupons arrive in the mail. I need one more $10/$50 Safeway coupon, if any of my real-life-friends have one to spare!
And remember to buy The Sunday Oregonian if you need filler items to get to your target amount!
