TARGET: I ran into Target for dish soap and stumbled upon this great deal! Large bags of Quaker rice cakes are priced at $2.00, with a $5.00 gift card when you buy 5. So pay $10 and get a $5 gift card. I had (5) coupons for $1/1 any Quaker product from the 1/18 RP and paid $5.00 and got a $5.00 gift card back. Some markets got a $1.25/1 gift card which makes this a moneymaker. These bags are much larger than the ones I have been paying .37 for at Walmart and are a great snack for toddlers.
Quick Tip: Don’t be afraid to ask to pay for items separately. I knew I was getting the gift card (which can not be applied to the same transaction at Target) so I asked to have the diapers rung up separately. I found a store coupon that someone received in the mail and left on the diaper display for $2/1 any Huggies. I also had a $3/1 IP for natural fit diapers. Since you can combine store coupons with manufacturer coupons- the price of these diapers went from $10.29 to $5.29. I paid $5 using the gift card and paid .89 oop. I will get a .75 rebate from Caregivers as well for the diapers.
Lucy: I stopped in Lucy to get my free socks (regularly $14.00) and had at least 3 people behind me using the same coupon. I posted this deal here. It runs until 3/22.
Costco: Stay tuned for my post on shopping at Costco. Most couponers don’t shop the box stores but I do for certain items. I purchased a 2lb block of Mozzarella cheese, 2 lbs of Cheddar cheese and 6 lbs of bananas for $9.88 total.
Total spent: $16.86.
