They are now accepting manufacturer coupons [even if over the shelf price], internet print coupons, competitors’ coupons [that feature a specific item for a specified price], coke caps and catalina coupons [must have "manufacturer's coupon" printed on top].
Today, I took the policy on a test run and purchased the following:
2 Gain Fabric Softener 40 sheets @ $1.87 = $ 3.74 – (2) $3.00/1 = FREE + $2.26 Overage
Mrs. T’s Pierogies @ $1.98 – $1.00/1 = $0.98
Zatarain’s Red Beans and Rice $1.46
Louisiana Red Beans and Rice @ $1.16 = $2.32 - $1.00/2 = $1.32 or $0.66 each
Venus Razor $7.94 – $5.00/1 = $2.94
Honey Buns $1.50 (These are better than the Wal-Mart brand for $1.00)
French Bread $0.90
Mrs. Baird’s bread $1.98 (This is the best price around without a coupon)
Total Spent $8.88
Total Saved $13.00 or 60%
Looks like the coupon policy works, I did not get any questions as to the value of my coupons or the size of my purchases compared to the coupon. Perfect!
Update: We tried the Louisiana Red Beans and Rice tonight with ground beef and red crushed pepper and a side of Sweet Corny Cornbread… pretty tasty! The red beans and rice are kind of high in sodium, so if you are watching your intake, consider this before trying!
