After seeing the cart, and starting to turn away, the wall behind us caught my attention. It was lined with tons of the salad dressing! I saw a paper on a lot of the bottles and upon closer inspection I realized they were coupons. $1 off coupons at that! Making them FREE! I grabbed up a ton of them, and I know we will never use them all. But the Harvester's Food Collection barrels are at the exit of the store, I had it figured out! I am also going to give most away to co-workers, family and such.
I just happened to glance to the left of the Ken's dressing and saw an equally as large display of Sweet Baby Ray's, on sale for $1 with $1 off coupons on them! I grabbed up 25. The BBQ sauce doesn't expire for over a year, so we kept every bottle. We like to BBQ! In the picture you will notice the Bic Flame Discs. I didn't get those tonight, but wanted to share with you the great deal, as they were also free! I got them last week.
As you can see on the receipt, I spent only $4.18 for the salad dressing and BBQ sauce. With a total savings of $195.96 off of the regular price. So, for not planning on getting any really great deals and being unarmed without my coupons, I would say I did pretty damn good! I love surprise bargains! These were special coupons by the way. They are sent to the store in the box with the products. They never know when they will get them. It seemed to be a good way for the store to get rid of the older stock to make room for more. They will get back exactly the price they were asking for it. It was a win-win kind of deal!
If any of you run across this kind of deal, I highly suggest taking advantage of it and to the extreme if no limit is stated by the store. But PLEASE, do NOT hoard! Pass on the good fortune of your couponing deals to others. Pay it forward, and more good deals will come your way!
