OK, I realize that I’m a bit slow when it comes to deal scenarios. This one waited to hit me as I was rocking my baby back to sleep at 4:30 am. I was so excited that I almost got on the computer instead of going back to sleep. But alas, sleep won yet again.
This is an awesome opportunity for those of you looking to create or bolster your paper product stockpile. Today is the last day to do it at Safeway, so get on it! These transactions do not require the use of paper coupons at all. I’m going to outline it as though you do not have a $10 catalina to spend on the outset. Even better if you do!
Buy Charmin (24 double rolls) = $12.99 original price
Buy Bounty (12 big rolls) = $12.99 original price
Use any paper coupons you have in your stash
Use $3/1 Charmin eCoupon
Use $3/1 Bounty eCoupon
Use a Safeway double if you are using paper coupons
Receive $6 promo savings
Pay $13.98, Get $10 P&G Catalina
Buy same items or two of one (doesn’t matter in this transaction)
Use any paper coupons you have & a Safeway double
Use $10 catalina from transaction #1
Pay $9.98, Get $10 Catalina
You can repeat transaction #2 as long as you want.
After two transactions, you will pay $.17 per roll, which is a kind of screwy way of calculating it since you have to take the paper towels into account. Of course, these transactions will get even lower if you have home mailer coupons. I just wanted to make the scenarios as easy as possible for those of you just starting out without a big coupon stash. You can score BIG even without manufacturer’s coupons!
You should now have a more-than-healthy stockpile, purchased for way less than my base price for toilet paper ($.30/double roll).
Note: For those of you having a difficult time loading the P&G eSaver eCoupons onto your Safeway Club Card, make sure you’ve created an account and are logged in before you start entering your zip code and search for coupons. Once I’m logged in, I have no problem finding coupons and I’m using a new-ish zip code from a rural area.
