Reader Lynn tried out the P&G catalina deal at Acme this week. Here is what she said:
This is my first year “couponing” and I’d like to say THANKS so much for your website. It has been very helpful and I’ve saved a lot of money since February when I first learned about the wonderful world of couponing!
Here’s my Acme trip from 11/7 (I did the P&G catalina deal). I was nervous it wouldn’t work on shelf price, so I was aiming for sale price. Funny thing is, it must be working on shelf price, because I was 3 cents short of $20 on sale price!
Paid 9.62, got the $5.00 Catalina, so $4.62 for everything! Woohoo!
And here is what Lynn picked up:
1 Oil of Olay body wash (KD 5.99) 5.99
1 Bounce Dry bar (6.99) 4.99
1 Pringles extreme (1.69) 1.50
2 Crest glide floss (4.89) 2.50
1 Secret (3.29) 2.49
Total sale price: $19.97
Total shelf price: $27.74
1/2 gallon of milk 2.09
6 Mentos gum 1.00 each
(6) -1.00 Mentos
(1) -5.00 on Olay BW when you buy Secret
(1) -.75 Secret (doubled to 1.50)
(2) -1.00 floss
(1) -2.50 bounce dryer bar (vocal point)
