I had to make ANOTHER trip to the pharmacy, this time Walgreens, so I also made ANOTHER trip to Harris Teeter, which is conveniently located next door.
I had some time to look through my coupons last night, and with a little planning and creativity, came up with a way to get a few staple items, which I seem to buy weekly, for very little out of pocket. Here's how I was able to get the items below for just $0.77.
1 Smart Balance Milk - regularly $4.19, on sale for $3.00
-$1.50 printable coupon (use zip code 44144) x 2 = FREE
1 Minute Maid Juice - $3.69
- $1.00 printable coupon (like them on facebook, then click pure squeezed) x2 = $1.69
1 Coffee Mate Natural Bliss Creamer - regularly $2.49, on sale for $2.29
- $1.00 printable coupon x 2
- $0.50 e-vic coupon (link your store card and add coupons)
= FREE + $0.21 in overage to be applied to rest of cart
1 bag Grande Tortilla Chips - regularly $2.99, on sale for $2.50
- $1.00 coupon x 2 = $0.50
Wholly Guacamole - $2.79
- $1.00 printable coupon x 2 = $0.79
Total after coupons = $2.98 - $0.21 overage = $2.77
I also had a $2 +UP Reward from Rite Aid that would expire on Saturday, and there was nothing at Rite Aid that I was interested in buying before then. I had heard that Harris Teeter accepts +UP Rewards and CVS Extra Bucks as competitor coupons, so I gave it a shot, and the cashier accepted it without hesitation.
So, $2.77 - $2.00 +UP Reward (used as competitor coupon) = $0.77
Not bad for an order that included milk and orange juice!
