Couponing in Chicago!

Traveling, working, all these things make it hard to score deals. I was bummed I wasn’t able to take advantage of Safeway’s $10 off $75 coupon this month (also b.s., it used to be $10 off $50) and thought I was gonna miss out on a good Dove deal at Albertsons as well due to my trip to Chicago. But then, Nick Lipton needed to return some DVDs and we needed beer so we headed on over to the local Jewel-Osco. I grabbed the circular and lo and behold, it was the same sales as Albertsons! I never leave home without my coupons, so I was set. Then, as an extra bonus, I picked up the instore extra savings booklet and whaddaya know, there was a $3 off a 30 pack of PBR coupon in there (as well as other booze coupons.) This fact alone made me want to move to Chicago, but I settled for doing two transactions instead.

Transaction #1

1 each Dove Shampoo and Conditioner (On sale $5 each – buy one get one free coupon = paid $5)

1 6 pack dove hand soap (On sale $6.79 -$1.50 coupon = paid $5.29)

With tax paid $11.82 (tax is bullshit BTW) and got back a $5 catalina.

Transaction #2

1 30 pack PBR (on sale $12.99- $3 store coupon = paid $9.99)

1 pack Shaun White Stride Gum. (Unnecessary impulse purchase)

-$5 catalina

with tax and deposit paid $8.33

In total I paid $20.15 for $35.87 worth of stuff. Nick Lipton was not entirely impressed (it did take awhile) and said I need a new hobby, but he can suck it.
