Featured Brag: ccmp1974 Cleans Up On Clearance


cheryl

ccmp1974 managed to score Similac formula for just $2.50 a can by combining pink sticker sales with coupons and Similac cheques this week, and got ready for next Easter while shopping!

8x $24.99 Similac – 50% off pink stickers -8x $5 coupons( doctor office) – 8x $5 cheques (mailout’s and trades) =$20 or $2.50 each can! – This ‘stacking’ was allowed as the cheques are a form of payment and not a coupon.

  • 2x $0.05 Easter Cello Bags = $0.10
  • 2x $0.01 Easter Colouring cup – 50% pink sticker = FREE!! (odd 50% off of a penny = free!! LOL!!) & 2x $0.01 Easter Coloring cup =$0.02
  • 83x $0.05 Easter egg colour kit = $4.15 & 43x $0.05 Easter egg colour kit – 50% pink sticker = $1.29
  • 2x $0.01 Easter Shaded mazes =$0.02
  • 3x $0.01 Egg grippers – 50% pink sticker = FREE!! & 2x $0.01 Egg grippers = $0.02
  • 2x $0.01 Easter garland = $0.02

I wish I could find pink sticker clearance at $0.01!  So what will ccmp1974 do with all those egg colouring kits?  They are going to be given to all of the children in her daughters’ school for next Easter.

Featured Brag: ErinsMom Uses FPCs to Score More Freebies


erinsmombrag

While getting anything for free is excellent, most SmartLife members hold onto their free product coupons (FPCs) until they can make even more from them – you can use them on items with bonus points, for items with more coupons on it and in some cases towards minimum spend requirements for promotions (not at Shoppers Drug Mart).

Including tax, ErinsMom paid only $6.88 for everything pictured and received 9 Airmiles and coupons for five free Blizzards from Dairy Queen and five free drinks at Orange Julius.

  • Kraft Shredded Cheese $3.99 – $1 coupon X 2 = $5.98
  • Lean Cuisine Fresh Inspirations $ 4.29 X 6 (6 FPCs) = $0
  • Orville ready to eat Popcorn $2.99 X 2 (2 FPCs)= $0

Featured Brag: Alisa123’s Baby Item Haul


alisa123

Alisa recently posted her Shoppers Drug Mart brag

All diapers are already on sale.
Pull ups $10.99 – 3000VIB points (I wish my $2off coupon hasn’t expired…)
Easy ups $10.99 – $3 coupon + 3000VIB points
Huggies box $14.99 – $1 coupon + 3000VIB points
Mother hen baby food $8.37 (price applies if you buy more than 4, I had 6) – 6x$5 coupons
So, $8.37 – $5= $3.37 each, 20.22 for 6 Plus they had an offer of 200 bonus points WUB2, so 600 for 6
To be honest, I think that Mother hen is ridiculously expensive, but with all the offers it finally came to an acceptable price

Bottom line:
$55.04 for $78.04 worth of products that were already on sale.
9600 bonus points
Paid for it with SDM gift card (double the regular points )
And of cause I got the $10 savings card.

The points would be worth $17 at the highest regular redemption level plus an additional $10 savings card so Alisa earned $27 back on her purchase too.  Click here to see her full brag.

Featured Brag: IRefuseToPayFullPrice’s Quaker Deal


irefusetopay

Using coupons with  sales and other deals is the best way to use coupons.  Forum member IRefuseToPayFullPrice did just that when she found Quaker oatmeal on sale for $1 box and used coupons for a free Tropicana Juice when you buy three Quaker products.

  • 6 box of Quaker oatmeal at $1 each = $6
  • 2 cartons of juice at $4.27 each = $8.54
  • Total paid for items = $6

As you can see from her full brag (click here to see it), she also used coupons on her other items bought.

Featured Brag: Saving on Produce by Buying Glade


dot

It is not very often we get to see brags about saving on fruit and vegetables, but forum member d.ot scored this week when a multibuy deal meant she saved more than the item at Walmart.

Personally, I hate multibuy deals, you are never sure if the price will adjust and you end up buying more than you need, but it worked well for d.ot when a 2/$10 deal on Glade products with the price adjusting at the end meant that her BOGO coupon was rung up at the single item price of $7.34  and not the $5 adjusted price.  So d.ot used this overage towards taxes and other purchases and spent only $1.22 for her purchase (the apples alone were $1.49)

Click here to see the breakdown of her purchases (and do congratulate her on her first brag).

How do you save on produce?
