Walmart deals and new coupon policy


Wal-Mart has a new coupon policy that specifically allows printable coupons AND overage!! I am thrilled that they finally got together and put this into a policy. Be sure to print this and keep it with you to avoid any trouble!

I go to Wal-Mart only about once every two months, but I went today to get a few great deals that I’ve been saving up! Here’s what I got:

Gain lavender fabric softener sheets 160 ct $4.33 (x2)
Gain original fabric softener sheets 40 ct $1.87 (x3)
– $3/1 coupon (x5) = FREE PLUS OVERAGE (note: I could have gotten only the 40 cts and maximized my overage, but I loved the way the lavender ones smelled, and they only came in 160 ct. They still ended up being free plus overage, just not as MUCH overage as I would have gotten with just the 40 ct boxes!)

Millstone coffee packs $1.64 (x3)
– $2/1 pre-packaged Millstone coffee = FREE PLUS OVERAGE

Scotch-Brite sponge $.84 (x4)
– $1/2 coupon HERE = $.34 each

Cottonelle Ultra 12 pack $6.49 (price matched with Publix’ ad) x2
– $.50/1 (couldn’t find my other coupon!!!)
– $10 Mail In Rebate HERE = $1.24 each!

Granola bars 12 pk (the kids have been begging for these, and by kids, I mean my husband ;)) $3 (x2)

Grand total before coupons/rebate = $42.49
Grand total after coupons/rebate = $8.03 or 81% savings!

Sorry about the no pictures lately! I took my camera with us to the zoo last weekend and haven’t quite located it yet. I have a knack for doing that!

I am planning on grocery shopping VERY little through December, and not at all next week. That’s my soft, non-committal plan anyway. I’m sure you’ll see how well I do at it!

In the meantime, hurry out and get those super-cheap turkeys and sweet potatoes at least! I was able to price comp the $.39/lb turkeys from Food Lion’s ad at Wal-Mart AND at Bi-Lo with no problem at all!
