Deals I Scored at Kroger This Week

I am quite pleased of Kroger lately. They have been having sales for stuff that would be great to stock up. Since I do have coupons to pair with their sales, might as well use them all. Good thing though, these stuff aren’t as “in demands” for other couponers so they pretty much well stocked up on their shelves.

Since their 10/10 sale started last week, I stocked up on Colgate 4.6 oz. I used all ten of my manufacturer coupons (4 for 75 cents off and 6 for 50 cents off). Kroger limits 3 same like coupons in same shopping trip so I had to do multiple shopping trips there. Cost me .50 and .25 each tube. They expire in 11/15 and I know, you’re thinking how are we gonna use them all? Not a problem, my family and relatives in the Philippines will be happy to receive them.

Arm and Hammer spin brushes cost me $2.50 plus tax each after store sale, $8.99 at Kroger buy one get one free. I used four $2 manufacturer coupons for all of them. I have not seen such a price for battery-operated brushes like these. I am happy. I looked at the price of the same brush at Walgreens yesterday it is same at Kroger only not BOGO free.

My haul this morning are these 3.5 pounds bags dry dog food. Gladly, I did not throw away dog food coupons (buy one 3.5 lb beneful dog food get one free) for our dog Chicha was out of natural dog food. I’ve had these coupons for two weeks now but didn’t bother using them as I had no instruction from the husband to buy unnatural dog foods. Since we are out of dog food, he asked me last night if I could buy some and he even added, it would be nice if we could have some stocks of dog food so it won’t happen again.

Oh by the way, I bought six bags at Kroger at $6.29 each 2 paid bags and the other four at Walmart. Kroger is 81 cents more paid per bag but I earned fuel points for buying at their store while I don’t receive anything from Walmart in return.

Victoria’s Secret Pink Deal Ideas

A lot of avid Victoria’s Secret shoppers out there probably possess several secret reward cards and are wondering how are they gonna redeem them all before they expire. Are you one of them? Here is a deal idea for you that won’t let you spend big amount “out of pocket” since VS don’t allow using two or more secret reward cards in one transaction.

For first transaction, I’d suggest you go to their physical store and buy a PINK mist for $8 and a pair of PINK flip flops for only $5 (originally $14.50) with any PINK purchase for a limited time. Use $10 secret reward card, pay out of pocket $4+ tax. Each cost you $2, final price.

For second transaction, if you have that $10 off a bra and free cotton panty coupons, now is the best time to redeem them. Buy a pair of flip flops, PINK bra $29.99 or 2/$42 and pair it with a $10 secret reward card. Pay $15 or $27 plus tax.

However, if you don’t have a bra coupon, you should be fine doing with just transaction #1. Hurry though for the pink flip flops have only limited quantities, once they are gone… they’re gone in-store. You will be lucky if you shop online and you get your size but the only con though is that you have to pay for shipping fee.

Cents Each

It feels good to be able to find products you really need at low prices and can be paired with manufacturer’s coupons. That is just so sweet of a deal. Few of the items I grabbed at different stores today are photographed below also their corresponding breakdown. I literally paid just cents each item after coupons. Read below.

4-roll Angel soft toilet paper on sale at Kroger .88 and I used (6) .45 manufacturer coupons that cost .43 each pack after mq, zest free at dollar tree, I used (2) $1 printable mq, 4 oz.toddler toothpaste .97 each after coupons, used (3) $1 P&G crest coupons and suave kids body wash .88 at Walmart, sells for $1.88. I also bought 4 cups of Greek blended yogurt for my girls for 50 cents each, coupons used printed from Walmart coupon site 2/$1.

Deal on Deodorants and Shampoos This Week

So this is it! I’m unstoppable with this habit I have. I am back to being hooked to couponing. What can I say, I love saving money and getting free stuff! Here is my first haul for this week.

First photo below, I paid $13.71 received $10 extrabucks for items worth $62. Items are: 2 single roll paper towels store brand, 3 bottles of tresemme shampoo and conditioner, 3 bottles of Clear shampoo, 6 bottles Dove deodorant.  I made 4 transactions for all these so I could roll my ecbs and pay as little out of pocket if possible. I used two cards for these, by the way!

Second photo is of men’s deodorants bought at Kroger. My husband don’t use these products but my brothers in the Philippines will be glad to have them. I paid $3.65 for 5 deos but saved $17.70 after store sale and manufacturer coupons. Kroger’s Mega Sale will be until April 1. Buy 5 participating items and instantly save some, pair that with mqs.

I still wanna go back to the different stores tomorrow and probably for the rest of the week for I am not done with the deals just yet.

Couponing Saturday, March 15

I feel pretty beat up right now. I went to three different stores today and did quite a haul for less money. There are some items I bought aren’t included in these photos below because I only got a small discount on them and some I paid sale price with no coupon.

First Trip: CVS – out of pocket is $7.94 got $9 ecb back.

$5 ecb is a store loyalty reward after spending $50 in beauty products.

Olay Deal Round Two

I was not gonna do the Olay deal for the second time but I found out that I messed up a bit in my first haul. I misplaced the 3/$2 Olay manufacturer coupons and wasn’t able to use them previously. Good thing I found them again just before a new week starts or before Olay deals ends at CVS.

CVS was out of Olay bars so all I had left were body washes. I am not really into body washes but no choice. Six 700 ml bottles body washes for $30 and sunscreen store brand lotion, total paid $20.10 got back $10 ecb towards next purchase. That’s 67% savings there. $1.44 each bottle final price after coupons and ecb received! Not that bad!

Coupons used:
3/$2 any 2 Olay bar soap, body washes or in-shower lotions
$3 store mq Olay purchase of 15
$5 extrabucks on hand

On a lighter note, I am ready to send the mail-in-rebate for P&G beauty rebate of $50 purchase get $15. So hopefully I get more money than what I spent for these products.

Today’s trip was purposely to buy Olay products, I saved $42.44 or 77% after using ecbs on hand that I received from yesterday’s shopping and manufacturers coupons. I only paid $14.60 for all of the items below, got back $10 ecb. Why? CVS’ offer this week is spend $30 on Olay products get back $10. Olay Body bars/washes on sale this week 2/$10, facial cleansers and cloths for $3.99.

Plus, a future $15 mail-in-rebate from P&G buy $50 worth of Venus, Secret, Olay, Herbal Essences, Pantene, Aussie, Head and Shoulders, Vidal Sassoon, Clairol, Covergirl, Crest 3D White, Puffs, Safeguard or Ivory products. To think that I am only $8 away for my rebate, I am getting excited to get that money soon.

Wise shopper I am!

Freebie this Week

I try to do my couponing just once a week and I think I have been pretty good at stopping myself from driving to CVS more than once a week. I do have a lot of store coupons but I am thinking, nah I don’t need those stuff for now even though they are pretty high value coupons.

Anyway, here is my freebie for this week, this Irish Spring bar soap packages are on sale this week 2/$3. How I got them for free? I had a red machine coupon that was printed last week for it worth $3 any Irish Spring bar soap or body wash so I used it to get them. I love freebies and coupons, do you?

Spam for Only 62 Cents at CVS

I found myself hooked to couponing again, when I say “hooked” meaning I think about it all the time, browsing for printable coupons online and matching up coupons I have available. Even buying a newspaper just so I can get coupons that aren’t available online.

Anyway, I did go to CVS again today and I am already planning of going back there on Wednesday because I have expiring store coupons. So this is my haul today. Will give you a breakdown below, keep reading. I am happy of what I did even though I paid out of pocket over $15.

It is never bad to keep adding items in my stockpile for home use and for my family in the Philippines, isn’t it?
