Gift Card Balance: $21.48

Yeah, the savings aren't much. This was all about making a small investment to earn some ECBs. The math doesn't add up on the gift card balance because I somehow picked up the wrong Dentyne Gum that was $1.29 pre-tax. I went back in and exchanged it and they refunded the difference ($0.32) in cash.

Winn-Dixie: You can't buy Zicam for less than this!






Winn✓Dixie



Spent: $21.02
Saved: $30.60
Total Value: $51.62
Percent Saved: 59%

I did a mid-week shopping trip, which I usually don't do unless I run out of something. However, I felt a cold coming on and knew that W/D had a BOGO on Zicam, which seems to have worked well for me in the past. I decided to stock up on some meat in order to use the $5/$30 coupon. When I came home and read the Sedano's ad in the Redplum home mailer, I realized I could have gotten the chicken quarters for $0.39/lb (as opposed to W/D's $0.90/lb) and the broccoli for $0.99 (as opposed to $2.00). Oh, well. The $5 coupon helped compensate for that. Furthermore, you just aren't going to beat that Zicam price anywhere. My total before the $5/$30 coupon was $30.02. Talk about precision!
