veggies for xmas

October 1st, 2006 at 04:13 am

walked with mom for 50 min

Got groceries today at King Soopers. Some really good deals. Got free box of Electrosol dishwasher tabs - $2.99 with coupon. Spent $36.07 and saved $37.56. I also bought stamps and King Soopers gift cards to get the last little bit of my 5% back on credit card deal before it expires in Oct.

My best deal though was on the Del Monte rebate offer.

Del monte has a $10 rebate offer when you buy 18 items, with at least one from 3 different categories of items. Flash did her calculations earlier this week. Here's mine.

King Soopers had Del Monte veggies on sale at .60 each and Tomatoes and Fruit for $1.00 each.

If you bought 12 cans of veggies they also took $3 off at the register.

I had 2 coupons for .40 cents off of 4 cans, which they doubled.

There was a coupon that if you buy 3 cans of veggies and a package of Uncle Bens rice you got a second package free.

So my deal worked out at follows.

I bought 14 cans at .60 cents each = $8.4
I bought 3 cans of Tomatoes at 1.00 each = $3.00
I bought 1 can of fruit for 1.00
Total = $12.40
The register gave me back $3 immediatedly for buying 12 cans bringing the cost down to $9.40
2 coupons at 40 each - doubled took another $1.60 off the total making it $7.80
Plus I will get $10 back for the rebate meaning they paid me $2.20 to buy this food.

I got the 2 packages of rice also. One was free with the coupon for 1.79 and the price rang up wrong on both of them so they gave me one package free.

So I was paid $2.20 cents and I got
14 cans of veggies
3 cans of tomatoes
1 can of fruit
2 packages of rice

Wish these types of deals came along more often and I had the time to figure them out and take advantage of them Smile

My brother has not had a job for close to 6 years and mooches off my parents. So for xmas every year I try to see how many groceries I can get for $50. I give him lots of free samples and rebate items. This year he's going to get both packages of rice, plus several cans of the veggies and the can of fruit.

Finished reading the library book The Bookwoman's Last Fling by John Dunning. Mystery. Very Good.
