August Super Doubles report

Okay, now that I am back from our nation’s capital, time for a final report on Super Double coupons last week. Since we were leaving on vacation on Thursday morning, I only got 3 days of shopping in, but I managed to squeeze in quite a bit.

First of all, the things that I paid for:

22 Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts 12-ct ($11.00)
16 Tyson Chicken Strips ($8.00)
14 jars/boxes of assorted Baby food ($6.12)
4 GE Reveal lightbulbs 4-ct ($1.96)
1 Sargento Provolone Cheese ($1.89) – for trip sammiches
2 Meijer Gallons milk ($1.67) – I redeemed my 10 “Meijer Magic Milk points” for one of the gallons to get it for free.
4 containers Huggies Wipes ($1.56)
10 big boxes of Sunlight Dish Detergent ($1.45)
4 Old El Paso Gordita kits ($.81)
8 Betty Crocker Instant Potatoes ($.77)
1 Purell Hand Sanitizer ($.50) – for school supplies. I was annoyed at having to buy this since I probably have 50 of the trial size Purells at home but they had to have the kind with the pump…
20 Nexcare Bandages ($.36) – Had to pay 9 cents for 4 of them – should have been free as they were marked $1.99 but rang up at $2.09 and I didn’t feel like fighting for them

Things I got for free:

2 Lays Potato Stax – snacks for the car – I traded a co-worker for $1/1 peelies
14 Duncan Hines Brownies
1 Bisquick 64 oz (should have been another 96 oz but I must have just grabbed the wrong size)
3 Bisquick 96 oz
4 Eggo Waffles 10-ct
1 bag of frozen Green Giant Vegetables
3 Pillsbury Toaster Strudel
12 Cinnamon Toast Crunch
25 Colgate MaxFresh Toothpaste


1 Meijer Paper Towel ($.46) – one trip it printed out a coupon for $1 off any paper towel
2 Kleenex Moist Wipes ($.49) – again, printed out a Catalina for a free one, then when I redeemed that one it printed out another one for a free one. For a minute there I thought I was onto another Dixieware-style deal, but it stopped after 2.
1 Colgate Toothbrush ($.51)
1 Choice Energy Bar 4-pack ($.61)
28 Vlasic Pickles ($.99) – Most of these were just free (Doubling up to the $1.67 price) but 3 of them fully doubled for overage
20 Sugar Free Koolaid ($1.00) – same here but 2 of them doubled the full $2 for $1 total of overage.
18 Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts 8-ct ($1.05)
14 Totino’s Pizza Rolls 15-ct ($1.20) – good printable.
8 Old El Paso Refried Beans ($1.29) – coworker tipped me off to a printable for these that I overlooked.
6 Gum Toothbrush twin pack ($1.51) – got them on the last trip of the week as the other two Meijers were out of them.
14 White Rain Conditioner ($2.94)
8 Suave Kids Shampoo ($3.12)
12 Open Pit BBQ Sauce ($4.37) – you know, because I needed more of this
22 White Rain Shampoo ($4.62)
22 Betty Crocker Cookie Mix ($6.53)
14 Suave Shampoo ($9.50)
14 Emery Boards ($10.38)
16 Old El Paso Taco Shells ($11.16)
25 Suave Conditioner ($13.54)

As you can probably tell, the Suave was the best deal. I had $1/1 coupons, and it’s regular price at 99 cents. Most of them doubled, so for every 99 cents that I bought, it took $2 off my order. All in all, it was $882.45 of groceries for -$26.29. This includes $12.09 of sales tax, which was more than I paid for any other item. Can’t beat Uncle Sam
