The cake mixes were $1.65 BOGO. The boxes had a .35 peelie for frosting on them, so I got (2) and used (2) $1/2 Duncan Hines PQs from GA Toss 4 Cash booklet and (2) .35 peelies. Except I was expecting the .35 to double to .70, and didn't pay attention that the barcode started with "9", so no doubling dang it.
Got the Vitamins @ $3.99, no overage but to bring my total before coupons up to $25 so I could use the $5/$25 coupon. I think I didn't need to once I bought all the potpies, but I forget.
There was no Thermacare or $2.99 Vitamins.
I had (thought I had) $2.91 overage; the pot pie deal was buy (5) pot pies @ .58 each, and get (3) fruit pies free, which came out to a cost $2.90, so I should have been $0.01 in the negative at checkout.
But then the frosting coupon didn't double, so I ended up paying .70 more, and apparently misfigured something else I can't find at the moment, anyway;
Total $0.79 + .86 tax = $1.65 from gift card
I forgot to add the bag of Tostitos in the picture; there was a tearpad by the Pepsi's for Buy (3) Pepsi and get Free Tostitos. It expired 8/27, but I asked at the desk since it was still out would they still take it and she said they would.
But they had Thermacare and Vitamins. Being the last day the Green Flyer Coupon is any good, I wanted to use all the ones I had.
I had no idea if they would let me use only one or more, so I wish-washed around a bit and then said, oh what the heck, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I got the Rice and Thai soup mostly just to have something else in the order besides the Thermacare and vitamins, although the Rice gave me a bit of overage, too: $0.89 - .50 MQ (doubled) = +.11 overage x 10 bags.
The Thai ginger noodle soup stuff was $0.99 and I used a .50 (doubled) coupon I got at....um, either redplum.com or maybe coupons.com, so it was basically free, or +.02 overage.
I ended up with $10.xx overage, but after $3.60 worth of tax ate a chunk out of it, I still had $7.13 overage left.
I bought a $25 gift card, paid $17.87 from a previous gift card, so I still have $7.13 on the previous card, plus a new $25 card.
This is how to bank money for later, when you need something and there's no overage items.
