I know I am really late putting up my scenarios this week, but I have been so torn as to what to do. I got an e-mail yesterday letting me know that today the coupon machine would be printing a coupon for Pepsi brand 2L at 2/$1 with a $10 purchase. It said it was a one day deal, but I figured it would likely not expire today. I stopped in to print it, knowing that I want to wait and go back tomorrow for the 20% coupon. I was glad to see that indeed it doesn't expire until tomorrow. Generally, they will take normal CRTs a few days after expiration, but my experience with the one day only offers is that they won't take those once expired.
So, here is what I am thinking about getting:
1 - NatureMade Fish Oil
1 - Schick Hydro Silk
6 - Arizona Iced Tea
1 - Colgate MaxFresh Toothpaste
2 - Mountain Dew 2L
-$7.70 20% total purchase (doesn't say that it excludes sale items in the ad)
-$7 NatureMade IP (earned with points from vitamins purchased)
-$5 Schick Hydro Silk CRT (got it today)
-$2 Schick Hydro Silk mfg coupon
-$.75 Colgate Max Fresh IP
-$2? 2/$1 Pepsi 2L CRT
Total $14.04, earn $10, $3 and $1.50 ECBs. Essentially, getting everything for free.
I may also look for some Advil coupons and pick up a bottle, they have a $3 ECB offer. And, if they have the Smart Food chips included on their 2/$2.50 sale I will definitely get some of them. Haven't been able to find them at my grocery store yet. I asked the guy stocking the Frito Lay last time I was at the store and they didn't carry them he told me. I will also look for the Gillette Fusion Shave Gel travel size, which is reportedly generating the ECB, making it less than 50c.
