Walmart, Albertsons, & Safeway: Coupon Shopping Trip 2/12/12 – $43.46 Money Maker (107.5% Savings)

It was a HOT week for shopping at Albertsons with the Buy More Save More Catalina event! I knew the stores would get hard for that reason and rainchecks would be worthless so I was up bright and early on Sunday to shop!  When I added it all up: I GOT PAID $43.46 to take home $583.34 worth of goods for a total 107.5% savings!

I ended up scoring:

  • 53 x Breathe Right (2 ct.)
  • 2 x Nicorette Gum (20 ct.)
  • 3 x Schick ST2 Disposable Razors (10+2 ct.)
  • 1 x Opti-Free Pure Moist Multi-Purpose Solution (2 oz.)
  • 42 x Welch’s Grape Juice (64 oz.)
  • 18 x Super Chill Lemonade
  • 16 x Brawny Paper Towels
  • 5 x Dish Soap
  • 1 x Saran Wrap
  • 66 x StarKist Tuna Pouches
  • 11 x Mission Tortillas
  • 1 x Dulce de Leche Cheerios
  • 1 x Multi Grain Cheerios Peanut Butter
  • 2 x Fun da-Middles
  • 1 x Ocean Spray Fruit Snacks
  • 1 x Haribo Gummy Bears

With the money maker deals at Walmart, I made $30.88 cash back and that went to cover my $6.88 out-of-pocket at Albertsons and 10¢ out-of-pocket at Safeway.  Additionally, I’ll get a rebate in the mail for $11.56 from my Safeway purchases; I still have $3 in CAT coupons for Albertsons; and, I earned a $5 reward bonus!

My day started off bright and early at around 7am.  You can see in this picture that it’s still nearly pitch black outside; and, apparently the crows follow my site and decided to get an early start too:

I spent the morning working my way north, hitting the Albertsons stores and Starbucks along the way.  I had planned to have lunch with a friend in Lynnwood so it worked out perfectly.  During the day, I hit my 5,000 point shopping bonus and received a $5 bonus:

After lunch, I met up with a few local couponers at the 196th Albertsons and did a lot of shopping there.  The last stop of the day was Safeway where I bought stuff for the General Mills Try Me Free Rebate offer:

I paid just 10¢ and should get $11.56 back:

Yay for an awesome shopping day! 😀
