Bi-Lo: First Experience w/ Doubling and Half Price BOGO

Spent: $5.43
Saved: $15.20
Total Value: $20.63
Percent Saved: 74%

So, I am in South Carolina visiting family this weekend. Given that there are more traditional grocery chains here than in Central Florida, I thought I'd take advantage of that and buy some non-perishables.   Unfortunately, there weren't too many super deals in the ads for the stores like Kroger, Food Lion, Piggly Wiggly, Bi-Lo, and Publix. (Yes, I was going to scout Publix because they double coupons everywhere except Florida and southern Georgia. So, whatever I bought with coupons worth $0.50 or less would be cheaper here than in Florida.)

Anyway, I found two products at Bi-Lo that were great deals. I messed up a little bit on the Scotties facial tissues though. It was buy one get one free, and I naturally picked up four to couple with my $0.50 off three coupon that would double to $1.00. However, BOGO items outside of Florida ring up for half price, negating the need to purchase them in pairs. That only resulted in me paying $0.10 more per box, so it's not the end of the world. Since Florida doesn't double, I still got a better deal!
