Today's Shopping Trip : Savings of Over $80!

This morning I decided to do some coupon shopping.  I was finally feeling better (the past couple of weeks has been rough around here), and I had several coupons that I had set aside just waiting to be used.  We made four stops:  Walgreens, Apple Market, Nichols & Walmart.  I'm including them all in one post just to simplify things a bit.  


My final total ended up like this:

Total amount at all four stores BEFORE coupons, rewards, etc :: $130.03

Total amount at all four stores AFTER coupons, rewards, etc :: $50.14 (plus $9.52 tax)


That's a savings of over $80 (well, about $70 when you add the tax)!  The details are below:



Walgreens::

(2) Pull-Ups Jumbo Packages, $11.99--on sale for $8.99 with Balance Rewards, used $2/1 from inserts, plus received 2000 Balance Rewards = $5.99 each

(2) Colgate Kid's Toothpaste, $3.99--on sale for $3.49 with Balance Rewards, used (2) $.50/1 from inserts  and received a $3 RR for both (had to do separate transactions for this to work) = FREE for both

(2) Laffy Taffy--$.15 each (filler item)

Here's the breakdown:

I did two separate transactions of the Colgate Kid's Toothpaste so I could receive both $3 RR printouts.  Then, I did transaction #3 which was the Pull Ups and the Laffy Taffy candies.  I applied both of my $2 Pull Up Coupons AND both of my $3 RR coupons which took $10 off of my total amount owed.  I also earned 2000 points on this transaction.

Total amount BEFORE coupons and BR :: $34.58

Total amount AFTER coupons and BR :: $12.26 (plus $2.32 tax)
