Winn-Dixie: My Kraft Catalina Scenario; $13 back!

Spent: $23.90
Saved: $21.31
Total Value: $45.21
Percent Saved: 47%

Kraft had two cool Catalina deals this week. The first one was on Crystal Light, which I am just realizing is not included in the picture. I shelved them before taking the picture. I bought four of them. They were on BOGO, and I got a $3.00 Catalina back for purchasing four. There was a huge Catalina on select Kraft items, offering $10 back for purchasing 10 select Kraft items. The great thing is that they overlapped! That's what made this so spectacular. So, I got $13 in coupons (a $10 and a $3) to use on a future order. I was also able to use a $5/$30 to lower my cost!

I Gave Staples a Loan

Price Before Rebate: $16.59
Price After Rebate: $0.00 (not including tax)

So, I scored two reams of paper and a double deal on pens. Both products are free after rebate. The Zebra Pens pack that was on sale with a rebate was the 7-pack medium ballpoint retractable pens. I found this buy one get one free package for the same price. I asked a store employee if this would trigger the rebate, and she said "no." I decided to go to a different person at check out and to try it anyway. It worked!

Walmart: Razor Profit!

Total Value: $4.44
Percent Saved: 68%

I am continuing my tradition of not paying for razors. There was a $3.00 coupon in the 8/5/12 SmartSource. The razors were $2.68 at regular price. So, I got the razors for free plus a little overage that I used to help cover some eggs. If I had more than one coupon, I could have racked up bigger savings!
