Copps Trip 4/20/11 $7.21...88% OFF!

Copps Trip 4/20/11 $7.21...88% OFF!
I took a quick trip to Copps and nearby Walgreens yesterday.  My grocery budget is getting tighter & tighter this month & I'm still planning to do a little shopping at Hy-Vee & ALDI (& maybe Target) yet this week, so I was really trying to hold back on spending much during this trip.  As it turns out, I was glad to get some great deals on the items I did choose to purchase.

For these and more deals available at Copps yet this week, see my earlier post: Copps Deals Week of 4/17/11 - 4/24/11!

Here's what I chose to buy at Copps:

1-Scotties facial tissue, $1.00
+ used one $0.50/1 coupon, doubled

4-Energizer Battery 4 packs (3 AAA & 1 AA), $2.50 each
+ used four $1/1 coupons, doubled
= $0.50 each (or < $0.13/battery)

~ used Rolling Gift Card Idea: purchased a $25 Copps gift card to be sure my coupons would double & also used a $25 Copps gift card from a prior trip to zero this cost out.

Total Saved: $15.65 (87% OFF!)

Transaction #2:
10-Ronzoni pasta boxes, $1.00 each
+ used five $1/2 coupons, doubled

2-Tampax, 18 & 20 ct., $3.95 each

    Do you know if Copps will put a limit on their Ronzoni pasta boxes on Saturday for the double double day?

  2. Hi Deb! I don't think there's any limit but I think it's important to leave plenty for other shoppers/couponers. If the shelf is already bare when you arrive, be sure to ask an employee whether they have more "in the back". Often times, they do! :-)
