So I was shopping at Food Lion, and stumbled upon this awesome deal. All Special K cereals were on sale 2 for $5. On some of the boxes, there were peelie coupons that stated "Buy this box of Special K cereal and recieve a free 4 pack of Special K protein shakes, protein bars, or protein water mix." Ok, so immediately the wheels started turning, and I was thinking, OK, this deal has the potential to be very huge, so I started searching through my coupon binder for additional coupons to use on top of the ones on the boxes of cereal. I knew I wanted the protein shakes, because they were very good, and the regular price was $5.99 for a 4 pack~~way too pricey for me to buy without coupons, LOL. I found a coupon in my binder Buy one box of Special K cereal , get one free...so this was going to make the deal even sweeter! So, I put the 2 boxes of cereal in my cart and went over to the other aisle to get the protein shakes. When I got there, my heart skipped a few beats, and I got lightheaded ( this is something that happens to "couponers" when they find a great deal) when I seen the sign that said......Buy any 5 Special K products and receive $5 off your shopping order! So I bought the snack bars and the protein water mix to make 5 items on each order.... AND ..... each one of those boxes had a $1 off peelie coupon too..... I was in coupon heaven by now!!!!!!!! I knew right then, I was gonna make out like a banshee on this deal!!
So, I did this order 4 seperate times, at 3 different Food Lion stores in my area....here is the breakdown:
8 boxes of cereal ($2.50 x 8 = $20)
8 four packs of protein shakes ($5.99 x 8 = $47.92)
3 boxes of protein snack bars ($3.29 x 3 = $9.87)
1 box of protein water mix ( $4.29)
Ok, so regular price on all these items without coupons would have been $82.08 plus tax.
After all my manufacturer coupons, coupons on the boxes of cereal for free shakes, the coupons on the boxes of bars and water mix, AND an additional $5 off each order from FoodLion, my grand total out of pocket for all these items was......drumroll please....... a whopping $5.16 plus tax!!!!!!!!!
Here is a picture of everything, and I'm sure you already figured out I'm pretty excited about this.......
Have a great day everyone, and use those coupons! ...... Deanna
