I’ve been so busy that I haven’t even updated you with some great deals and freebies I discovered last week. First, let me begin with my favourite grocery deals I scored.
As Kate mentioned on a previous post, the Europe’s Best Frozen Veggies were on sale for $1.99 and with plenty of Europe’s Best coupons out there, the priced was reduced to just 99¢ each. Luckily, this sale, which can be found at Loblaws, is recurring this week!
The Robin Hood Flour was on sale for only $3.49, but with a 75¢ off coupon (came with my free Homemakers magazine) it was only $2.74.
The Maestro Extra virgin Olive Oil was on sale for $5.89 – and this sale came just in time, as we had just run out.
The Knorr soups were on sale for $1.99 and came with a $2 coupon when you buy two, so they were only 99¢ each. This special is still on this week at Loblaws and Valu Mart.
The Royale toilet paper was purchased from IGA at $2.99 for a pack of 16. With a $1 coupon, it came to $1.99 – or just over 12¢ a roll. The equivalent sale is on now at No Frills this week – 40 rolls for $5.97. Use a coupon (Royale coupons are plentiful, at save.ca, for instance) and pay $4.97, or again, just over 12¢ a roll.
I will be adding the flour and toilet paper to my Food Bank stash for the Saver Queen Shopping Challenge. I am adding to my personal stash every time I get a great deal and will be delivering to the Fire hall this December.
In all, I used $6.55 in coupons – a little bit less than normal, however I also got extra PC points with points coupons and from bringing cloth bags. Make sure to remind the cashier to give you your PC points with every green bin and cloth bag you use. I used two bins and one bag.
I also received some coupons with my PC bill. If you spend $75, you will get a bonus of 5000 points; 10,000 points come with $150 purchase and 20,000 points with a $200 purchase. Don’t forget to check your bills for coupons like these!
Other freebies this week:
My partner and I went to Marks Work Warehouse to use my two free $10 gift cards that came with the flyer. (As earlier referred to here.) The minimum purchase was $10 so the products were free (minus taxes). I got a stainless steel water bottle (stainless steel is apparently the safest kind of water bottle) and another travel mug (a certain someone keeps forgetting his at work.) The best thing about getting these purchases for free is that they are money savers! Water bottles and coffee mugs are great investments to make so that you can avoid frequenting the coffee shops.
Did anyone else use their free gift cards?
Finally, I also enjoyed receiving a few more freebies. I used my free coffee card at the Second Cup (also mentioned here) and found Head & Shoulders shampoo and conditioner samples in my mail box. Good for a stocking stuffer or a travel kit.
