The WalMart Way

July 5, 2010

I had to go to WalMart to pick up a few things, so I grabbed some coupons that I thought would get me some good deals and off I went.  Here are the things I was able to get for (mostly) free.

Ocean Spray Blueberry Pomegranate Juice – $1.97

Used $1.00 coupon – $0.97

Tucks Take Along pads – $2.74

Used $3.00 coupon – FREE (Actually -$0.26, so I made a few pennies on this one!)

(2)Luna Bar – $0.97

Used (2) free Luna Bar coupon - FREE

AXE Travel Size Deodorant - $0.97

Used $1.00 coupon – FREE (Again I made $0.03)

AXE Travel Size Shampoo – $0.97

Used $1.00 coupon – FREE (Again I made $0.03)

Total Before Coupons – $9.03

Amount Paid – $1.09 (including tax)

Savings – $7.94

Cumulative Savings – $31.70

Not every cashier will let you use a coupon that is for more than the price of an item.  Usually they will override the coupon and make it equal the price of the item.  Sometimes they will refuse to take the coupon.  Fortunately (for me), the cashier helping me didn’t seem to know much of what was going on, she read carefully each coupon, looked extremely confused and then just shrugged and scanned the coupons.  But don’t freak out if they won’t. Kindness and patience will get you a lot farther.
