$1.00 Off Frozen Grands! Biscuits
and there are more fun coupons at Pillsbury.com.
Frozen Grands! are on sale for $1.99 at Kroger this week, making them $.99 with the spiffy coupon. Also look for peelies on the bags...
Friday, November 21, 2008
Before I left, I loaded eCoupons onto my Kroger card. Below are 3 places to load Kroger eCoupons. Remember!! These can be used WITH a paper coupon, a.k.a. stacked with a paper coupon.
P&G eSaver eCoupons
Cellfire eCoupons, I just signed up today. :)
Here's everything I got for $53.81. Not too bad, considering the last time I grocery shopped was
here and I got a bunch of stuff for Thanksgiving as well!
Some note worthy deals I got:
Frozen Pillsbury Biscuits, on sale $1.99 - $.50 ShortCuts eCoupon - $.40 newspaper coupon doubled = $.69
Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, on sale $1.67 - $.50 Shortcuts eCoupon - $.35 newspaper coupon tripled = $.12
Betty Crocker Pouch Potatoes $1.00 - $.35 ShortCuts eCoupon - $.35 newspaper coupon tripled (up the purchase price) = $.35 overage/profit
Cottonelle 4 pack $1.19 - $.50 Cellfire eCoupon - $.25 newspaper coupon tripled = $.06 overage/profit
Green Giant Healthy Weight Veggies, on sale $1.00 - $.25 newspaper coupon tripled = $.25
Near the bread and the milk, look for a coupon pad. It's for $1.00 off milk with any Sara Lee Soft and Smooth bread purchase. I made this a great deal by getting the Whole Grain White on sale for $1.79. The Springdale milk is on sale for $2.50. Final cost $3.29 for one gallon of milk and a loaf of Sara Lee bread.
I couldn't find any, but the Duracell 2 packs are on sale for $1.00, a great deal if you use the $.50 P&G eCoupon. I'll try again on my next trip. I'll need to do a final "Thanksgiving Day Dinner" run.
I saved $42.47 this trip and earned $77 towards the Fuel Rewards.
What good deals did you find this week??
Touch of Gray $7.00
Paid $7.58 on Wags GC, no OOP. Got $7 in RR back.
Almay Mascara $6.99
Wags Brand Paper Towels $3.59
$1.00 Almay newspaper coupon
Wags PT coupon (saved $1.09)
$7.00 in RR from above
Total paid on Wags GC $1.61, zero OOP. I'll get back $7.68 for the Almay mascara with the Walgreens November rebates. So overall, I "spent" $1.51 on these transactions.
I staged these transaction around my new game plan. First buy RR items with the gift card, them use the RR to purchase rebate items, "getting" that money back. Coupons and rebates are always icing on the cake!
Don't forget to send off your $8.00 Just For Men Touch of Gray rebate. Making this trip a money maker!!! $6.49 in profit to be exact!!

L'Oreal Age-Perfect $15.99
$1.00 L'Oreal newspaper coupon
$4.59 in ECB
Total OOP $11.26
Charmin 16 pack $9.99
4 Tissues (B1G1 free) $2.98
2 CVS Mouthwashes $5.00
$.25 Charmin coupon (wow!)
$1.00/3 Kleenex "CVS magic coupon machine" coupon
$.50/3 Kleenex newspaper coupon
$15.99 in ECB from Transaction #1
Total OOP $.23....yay! But I have NO Extra Care Bucks! Yikes!
I pretty much staged these trips around needing the TP and mouthwash. Tissues will get used this winter for sure. The L'Oreal I am selling with the one I got here at Wags last week. Both places only had the "medium" shade left, and it's too dark for me.
As of right now, the eBay market is flooded with people selling the L'Oreal Age-Perfect things. I priced mine at $14.99 for both (at auction) with free shipping. If they don't sell at auction (who cares!!), I will move them to my eBay store and mark them up a bit more. They will eventually sell (trust me....they will!), meaning all this stuff from CVS was free. Well, profit making really, once I make the $11.49 I spent in OOP back.
Yes, in case you were wondering, I am crazy! :)

$15.78 paid on Walgreens gift card (from October rebates), OOP = ZERO.
And, I'll get back $16.48 for the Loreal (14.99 plus 10% bonus for loading rebate to Walgreens gift card). So, this trip ends with a $.70 profit. :)
I had planned on getting 2 canned pumpkins and 2 Coffee-Mates, but they were out. I got the Pop-Tarts and applesauce instead. Not a bad job of re-working my deal....I just "needed" the Coffee-Mate and pumpkin.
P.S. I ended up with $26.92 from my October rebates. :)
P.S.S. I might make even more money on this trip if I decide to sell the Loreal on eBay. I'm still thinking on that one....

Condren Tree Service has a GREAT deal on firewood. It's $40 a pick-up load. You have to stack/load it yourself so bring gloves. And, you can only fill up the bed, level to "the top". So, you might need to load neatly.....but it's only $40!!!!!! Sure beats those $80 "stacks" you find all over town.

I got 40 items so that breaks down to $.84 an item!!
I saved $56.18 and got a fuel discount credit of $72. E-85, by the way, is $1.45 a gallon ($1.35 with discount)!
I only got bananas since I'm planning a trip to the new Murphy Sprout's this week. If you go on Wednesday, it's double ad day. I can't wait to check it out!
I also tried to do a CVS run yesterday, but couldn't find the Loreal. What a surprise....haha! So, I'll rework my list/coupons today. Depending on the rain, I'll go today or this evening when I take my daughter to dance. It's great to be home!

Target coupons......YAY!!!! This one was addressed to me. The last batch I got were addressed to my hubby.
$5 rebate check from The Caregivers Marketplace.
Free Blue's Clue's book from a Sunmaid Raisin Rebate Offer.
And a $1.00 Excdrine/CVS coupon. Speaking of CVS, I also recieved a $5/$25 coupon in my e-mail box while I was gone. It expires today, so that will be a great excuse to jump back in the CVS game.
Speaking of free stuff in the mail, yesterday I got the $5 Lysol Pediatrician Rebate (that took a long time) and sample of Greenies Cat Treats or you can pick dog treats.
Any hot samples or rebates? Leave me a comment!!

I was lead to the page with the promise of (another) Pantene Sample, but I think I've already gotten it. What I was able to request was a sample of Tide Total Care!
There was also an Olay® Definity Intense Hydrating Cream sample listed...but I must have already requested that as well.
The new P&G coupon insert comes out tomorrow with $106 in savings!!
