I love when grocery stores pay me!

So there was a deal at Kroger this past week or so (actually I think it has been going on for the past 4 weeks but I just found out about it – it ends today). Buy 6 Powerade Zero 32oz and get a coupon for $4 off your next order.

Since the Powerades are only 79 cents, 6 of them is like $5.15 after tax, so with the $4 coupon, it’s like 19 cents a Powerade. But of course, I got myself some .50/1 coupons, which double (up to the 79 cents) and make them free – so you make $4 for each set of 6.

I did that a few times today, and each time I had to play like 20 cents for the 6 of them (tax) and then got $4 back. But the last time, I forgot to put in my Kroger Plus card till the guy had already started ringing up the transaction. Since they’re $1.19 without the card, they all were ringing up at that, and then when he scanned the coupons, they doubled the whole amount (up to $1), since the computer thought they were $1.19. And then at the end all the 40 cents off lines came (reducing it to the card price of 79 cents), leaving me with a total of -$1.15.

So he was a little freaked out by that, but asked the manager and the manager was like “We owe him $1.15″, so they had to get a guy with a key and they opened up the drawer and handed me $1.15!! Hee hee. Makes up for the 64 cents in tax I had to pay the first 3 times.

And plus, I found a dime under the Coinstar machine on the way out, upping my total to 63 cents today (after $1.78 yesterday). I don’t have my spreadsheet in front of me, but I’m up over 9 bucks found so far!
