After picking all those great deals on Kraft products I headed over to the Planters Peanuts to see what kind of deal I could get using that $3 off any Planters nuts when you purchase 3 Kraft items. They had the 10oz jar for $2.79. Wooo Whoooo! Now if I can just pick a cashier that will not throw a shoe when I try to use it!
3 Planter Peanuts, $2.79 each, used $3 IP Planters coupon buy 3 Kraft or Oscar Mayer products, final cost FREE. Of course the register beeped, she stated she hated ip coupons, I asked her why. She said just the ones that were for more than the product was priced. I asked her why, she said because they get so many fraudulent coupons and then went on to punch it in anyway stating, "Dont worry about it, it's not like it's coming out of my pocket" and I told her "that's the way to look at it!" lol
1 Hunts Ketchup, regular price $1.55 each, on sale for $1.16
2 Price Chopper Hot dog buns $1.15 each
1 Mini Carrot $1.69
1 Sliced Mushrooms, regular price $2.18, on sale for $2.00
1 Crusty Baguette Bread, regular price $1.29, on sale for .60
So I was very pleased with this trip and my checker. She was very efficient and nice about the coupons. After the register printed out my receipt, she told me I saved $47.74...that's great! I told her thank you, smiling all the way to the car!
My hubby was very pleased with me coming home with change left out of my $50.
Now that everything has settled down and I've thought about this trip, I realize I made an error! I had a $5 off $50 purchase coupon I could have used. I forgot to get milk and that would have brought it up to around $48. I could have then used 2 more free cat food coupons to reach my $50 and then gotten another $5 off.... DANG IT!!!
