  • could be exciting???
    I recently received a coupon mailer from a local shop rite-a few minutes farther away than I usually go to shop, but the coupons were good, so I have been checking their circular and going once a week. (I am lucky enough to have a ton of shopping very close by-this store is about 8 minutes away-my regular store is about 3).

    So, they sent me (4) coupons for $10 off a $40 order-one per week.
    A freebie coupon for each week-free bag of potatoes, free Tropicana OJ, Free dozen eggs and Free half gallon of Friendly's ice cream

    I have gone each week and spent just enough to use the $10 coupon and to get the freebie. I have made the $40 order consist mostly of whatever is on sale that week. I have gotten some pretty good buys and I hate to say it, but it was all pretty exciting! I even spent my $40 on things that qualified me for a free set of cookware one week from Proctor and Gamble (shipping was included too!)

    My favorite buy for today was a combo pack of meats-(2) 3 pound roasts for pot roast and 3 pounds of stew meat at .99 a pound! I am having cheap pot roast tomorrow with my free potatoes from last week!

    I am so upset that the $10 coupons have run out-I will probably keep going back for sale items anyway-I liked the store. I guess the marketing ploy worked!

  • I love deals like that. I have gotten some really good deals and saved a ton of money hitting sales and using coupons at the same time lately. I have to say, I get really excited about things like that too!!!

    Sounds like you got some awesome deals. It really is exciting to save some money on things you want and need.

    Excellent!!

    Since you used those coupons, don't be surprised if you get more since they know it worked!

  • I love those coupons! Surprisingly, I dont get them in the mail, but a coworker gives me his and he doesnt even have a shoprite card...Maybe...thats it...mailing it to homes that doesnt have a supercard to get more customers. Never thought of it that way.
