Reader Shopping Trips: ShopRite and Target

Sean is a 29 year old lawyer that coupons and proud of it.

I couponed a lot back in 2008, but gave up after a while.  Then, recently, I decided I was spending way too much on groceries and decided to get back into it.  I stumbled on your website and it’s been a great resource the past couple of trips out.  So, thanks to you and your readers for helping us all save money!

  • Anne

    Sean I like the make-up remover wipes 😉

  • Quiana

    Great Trip!! I’m a 30 year old lawyer that coupons and proud of it also!

  • Zakiya

    Wow! I’m impressed! I’m a 28 year old lawyer that coupons and friends with the above 30 year old lawyer. lol

  • Joan

    Great job!

    Cindy, I know that you mentioned the cat for McCormick spices and were waiting for some q’s to use. Well, the MD ShopRites have the Recipe Inspirations on sale for $.99, regularly $1.99. So, buy 3 for $2.97 and get a $2.50 cat. Mine didn’t print but customer service confirmed that it should have. They gave me a $5 one since they were having trouble getting any of their $2.50 cats to print which was really nice of them.

    • Erin

      I bought two of the maccormick & they didn’t print – thought those spices weren’t part of the deal – just may go back!

  • yazmin

    What does this means “(Store Substituted Freihofer) – Store “Super Coupons”? i want super coupons too!!! 🙂

    • Gina

      There were super coupons in the circular for my store (Bedford Hills, NY) – Stroehman’s Bread for .89, baby carrots for .39, and 2 others, I forget what for.

  • Izabela

    Great trip!!…need to get some Balance bars next time also 🙂

  • great job!

  • yazmin

    OHH ok.. Thanks!! Great job on your trip hope to do a similar tonight..

  • Amy E

    Is there a reason he paid for one of the Tazo teas in a separate transaction?

    Maybe I’m missing something…?

  • Sean

    @ Anne – The GF was with me, and wanted to see if the Neutrogena coupon would work on the makeup remover, so we gave it a try. No problems!

    @ Amy E – Yes, the Tazo had to be done on separate transactions since it was a Target coupon. The web coupons say that you can only have one per transaction.

  • Amy E

    Sean….oh, I never even noticed that! I’ve used 2 of the same Target coupons in the same transaction many times, and they have never said a word! Oops!

  • Arianna

    nice job Sean! I’m excited to hit up my ShopRite with my LONG list and stack of coupons on Saturday! Such a rush!
