Super Savings Shopping Trip – Spent $59.55 Saved $147.84


All I can say is WOW! There are so many great savings that my head is spinning. Where do I start?

Well how about that I went to ShopRite & Pathmark and spent $59.55 for everything you see above and saved $147.84 and I still have $20 to spend at ShopRite from the $40 Back Deal. And, after finding great deals and coupons while I was at Pathmark, I will be going back there tomorrow. Like I said, so many great deals.

Here is how this all worked out:

I made 2 trips to ShopRite. When I do things like that I keep a cooler in my car filled with ice so I can store items in there that need to be refrigeratored. My first trip was for ONLY the items in the $40 Back Deal. I like to do that so if there is a problem with the transaction (like I don’t get my ceritifcates) then it is easy to figure out since the whole order is for the deal. I wound up doing only $80 because as I was trying to get to the $120 I was realizing that I really don’t use those some of those items and it was pushing my OOP (out of pocket) too high and I wanted to stay on budget for the week. So, I stayed at the $80 mark and am quite happy I did. You can go here to see what I got and how it worked out. So I spent $35.51 (it was lower because I use reusable bags) and got back $20 in certificates to use at another trip. Plus I got a catalina for a free milk from buying the 3 Cheerios.

My second trip into ShopRite was for 4 Tuna (free with coupons), 1 milk (free with Catalina), 4 Aguafresh (free with coupons), 2 Classico Sauce ($.50 each with catalina). Total for this trip was $1.16

Now onto Pathmark. There I bought $15 worth of meat including the London Broil on sale for $1.47/lb, ground beef on sale for $1.78/lb and sausage that was on sale as well as a managers special $1.00 coupon. I also got blueberries, OJ, water, paper towels, J&J First Aid Kit ($.99 each – $1/1 coupon from the 5/17 Red Plum). Then I used the $5 off $40 coupon and the Stop & Shop $5 off $15 coupon. When everything was deducted my bill was for $22.88.

So to sum it up:

Spent OOP $59.55
Saved: $147.84
Received: $20 in certificates from ShopRite
Found: Great deals & coupons at Pathmark which I will post tomorrow after I make another trip there.

Not a bad day in coupon land!

    I had a great Pathmark day too. Tropicana OJ was 1.98, minus the $1 off coupon from the father's day printable. 8th Continent Soy Milk was 2.99, minus a $2 off 1 printable. Turkey Hill Ice cream for 1.88. Friendship cottage cheese 2 for $4, used 2 $1 off digestive health cottage cheese to make it $1 each. I spent $16.78 and saved 30.57. My pathmark won't accept competitor's coupons. I talked to the manager about it this morning. He said corporate decides it for them, which stores do and which don't. Oh well.

    Good for you. You got some great deals. I am really surprised about the competitor coupons at your store. If I was you I would send an email to the Pathmark corporate offices and ask them directly. I was under the impression that Pathmark accepting competitor coupons was a corporate decision for ALL stores not just some stores. I would love to see what they say. Good luck!
