J’s birthday is coming up and he’d been saying for awhile how he wanted a new TV for our bedroom. Sadly, we’d been using my ancient TV/VCR combo that I had in college. It was still hanging in there, but the remote had been lost along the way and the screen was, well, tiny.
A few days ago I recieved a coupon for $25 off any purchase of $100 or more at Shopko. I didn’t think much about it until I remembered that Shopko sold televisions! I checked them out online and wouldn’t you know it? Their TVs were all on major sale! The TV we were interested in was $250 off the regular price. Combine that with my coupon and we saved $275 on a brand-spankin’ new TV! Whoo hoo! So, J got his present a little early, but I couldn’t pass up an awesome deal like that. The best part is that I get to enjoy HIS gift, too! 😉
Saved $31.00 on C-dog’s Frontline Plus medication. My vet was going to charge a lot more, but I ordered online and saved $26 that way. I also looked up a coupon code to get $5 extra off. Free shipping on all pet meds at http://www.drsfostersmith.com/. This should even out the cost of his special dog shampoo that I had to order yesterday and spend an outrageous $15 in shipping to get it here!
Target Trip. I saved $13.00 in coupons. I got some free Starkist tuna pouches (priced at $0.97) and I had two $1.00 off coupons. These were on the register endcaps. I also picked up the $0.50 beach towel from the $ spot. It will come in handy for S’s swimming lessons this summer and pooltime in the backyard! I was irritated that one of my high-value coupons didn’t get scanned for the Lysol Healthy Touch soap dispenser. I was willing to try it out for about $4.00, but my $5.00 coupon didn’t get scanned by the clerk, so I ended up paying $9.00 for it. I didn’t notice until I was out in the car and had S all strapped in, so I wasn’t about to haul her back in. I’ll just return it on a future shopping trip. I also found some Pampers Cruisers diapers on clearance in the baby section on an endcap. I saved $5.00 on a package of diapers combined with the clearance price and my coupon. They only had size 6 left. I’ll stash them away in S’s closet.
I also scored a free uddercover at uddercovers.com. If you enter code “babiesonline” you will receive a free uddercover (a $32 value!). I only paid $9.50 in shipping! I wish I would have had one of these with S, so hopefully it will come in handy with baby #2 someday…or I might save this for a shower gift. I don’t know how long this promo will last, so be sure to snag one while you can!
I scored some awesome deals at Copp’s tonight. Wednesdays are double coupon days, and I saved $13.75 in coupons! My favorite part about this trip was getting McCormick Vanilla and Snuggle fabric softner for FREE! I only spent $1.81 for everything in this picture:
The Crystal Light was only $0.25 and the Campbell’s Healthy Request soup was $0.39 a can! (*note* I could have gotten better deals on these soups by not buying the Healthy Request kind, but I like to use the HR when cooking because they are much lower in fat, cals and sodium. I still think I got a great deal on these!) I’m so getting into double coupon days. This was only my second Wednesday trying this out, but so far, so good! CATALINA ALERT! I purchased two McCormick vanillas and I got a $1.50 catalina good on my next grocery purchase. 🙂
Another cool thing I tried this shopping trip was printing out a shopping list from the Copp’s website. I was able to go through the flier online, select what I wanted and print off my shopping list, complete with sale prices listed! It was so easy and saved me a ton of time since I didn’t have to write out my list by hand! Check to see if your grocery store has this feature. It is a great time-saver.
Wags Trip. I saved $14.50 in coupons. I got all the items in the photo for $6.81.
The Halls cough drops were all FREE (combined Wags Q and 3 Manuf. coupons). Four Swanson Chicken Broths were $0.59 a can. Three Desitin were $2.00 each (they were on sale for $3.00 ea and I had a $3.00 off 3 coupon). I also used $3.00 in Register Rewards on this transaction.
I was all over the place on Friday…let’s see if I can recall my savings.
Saved $3.00 at Hobby Lobby w/ %40 off one item coupon.
Saved $2.00 in gas.
Saved $3.50 BRU on diapers and got a $15 gift card.
Saved 3.50 on drycleaning.
Total Weekly Savings: $109.25
