Price Chopper 12/6 trip

Price Chopper has a rule that they will only double to half of your order so I try to merge buying larger ticket items with getting lots of free stuff. That way it all works out in the end.

Cottonelle tp $3.29 - $1 c/o doubled = $1.29 (4 double rolls)
Charmin tp $3.29 - $1 c/o doubled = $1.29 (4 double rolls)

Snausages on sale $2 - $1 c/o doubled = free
Sunsweet prunes $2.99 - $1 c/o doubled = .99c

Nice job! What an interesting rule about doubling to half your order. Does that mean they will only let you use coupons to take off half of your pre-coupon price???

scentednights2002
12-07-2006, 05:42:27 PM
It means they will only double coupons until you get to half the price of your order. So if your order before coupons came to $100, they will double until you get to $50 and then coupons are at face value.

I hate it personally :)

Took an unexpected trip to Rite Aid today for decongestant for my husband who has an inner ear infection. Sudafed $7.99 - $1.00 c/o - $2.00 SCR = $4.99 which is $1 cheaper than the generic.

Not free but better than the alternative.

Had a good mail day today. I've been emailing companies asking if they have mailing lists for sending out coupons. A few of them just basically said sorry no but a number of them sent me out coupons. Got frees from McCain, Orchard Juice. Got c/o from LaChoy, Meow Mix, Mystic Pizz, etc.

I got a number of samples of tea as well by emailing tea companies - Stash, Good Earth, Wisdom of the Ancients.

12/10 - Rite Aid

In the latest sales circular is a .99c off any Scotch Wrapping Paper. It is on sale for .99c so final cost free. This is nice & heavy duty & reversible.

White Rain Stylers are .99c and there is a .99c SCR as well so final cost is free. I chose the hair spray since I'm out.

While I was there, I checked out the wine/beer aisle & noticed that some boxes of Miller beer had a peelie for $10 back when you buy any $20 GC. You must be 21 FYI. So I bought a $20 GC and used it to pay for my order. Will send in the rebate and get $10 back. No beer purchase required.

Nestle sugar free nips (gift for grandma) 1.59 - .55 q = 1.09

Basically got all of above for $4.09

Our Walgreens did not have any of the nn 2/$3 socks. They weren't out of stock, they just don't carry them so I couldn't get a raincheck since none are coming in. Also the sugar free nips were not on sale for .79 - only the regular varieties.

Got two Robitussin cough syrups for .99c each using two $3 IP qs. Will send in the $2 rebate from the SS to make them both FREE

The manager had to override to get it to take the $3q and my total came to $1.53. Not sure how that happened.

They didn't have the type of Swiss Miss that I had the $1 q for so I couldn't get that :(

Rite Aid 12/11

Got 6 bags of Hersheys/Dove candy for $2 each ($12)
after the $1/2 RA q (Hersheys) that I got for signing up for their emails, the .50c Dove q in the holiday booklet, the $1.25/3 Hersheys q from the SS, the two B1G1 qs for Dove, the total came to $5.00. There is a $5 SCR so I paid nothing for 6 bags of chocolate Christmas candy :)

They were out of stock for the Baby Magic so I got a raincheck for that.

They do not carry the $1.49 Airwick that the RA ad q & SCR are for so I am going to try the bigger RA half an hour away when I go to work.

Very frustrating to go to a store all set for lots of free stuff & find out they don't have most of it :(

4 Halls Naturals cough drops 1.39 each with WAG coupon.

I used a $1/2 mfg q & two B1G1 q's. Somehow they gave me .02 cents. I have no idea how but the manager was being very unpleasant so I just wanted to leave.

They would not let me use a $1 Loreal Studio Line q on the .75c hair spray because the item was less than the q. I don't know why not as CVS does it all the time but... such is life. At least I got the cough drops.

That said I am very annoyed at Shaws. They did not have the Fuze drinks, Yo-Plus yogurt or HC micro soup bowls. I was planning on getting those which would have made my total about $1.00 less. I can't get a raincheck because they aren't going to carry them.

Also, my $10 oyno did not print out at the register even though I bought the required items. The assistant manager argued with me about it! First she told me it was because I used coupons even though nowhere on the ad or the circular does it say the $20 you had to spend was after coupons. THEN once I got her to admit it wasn't, she wanted to put the $10 back on my foodstamp card. I told her it was supposed to be $10 on my next order. She said no it wasn't and argued with me until I pointed out the big yellow sign near the circulars that said it was a $10 catalina on your next order.

Shaws is really one of my least favorite stores but my choices are limited :I
