This week, Copps let your double TEN coupons (up to $1 each) at the checkout. You still needed the $25 minimum purchase before they let you double them. Quick math —
10 coupons x $1 – that are doubled = $20…you only need to add $5 more or a few more coupons that they wouldn’t double.
Here was the problem…the sales weren’t that hot, LOL!
THAT is how you maximize the deals – matching coupons to the sales specials.
I still ended up with 2 transactions and $112.12 for $31.06, saving 72%
Here are the details:
-One “meal deal” – a 4# chuck roast that gave me free carrots*, potatoes* and dinner rolls*.
-3 Ronzoni pasta* – on sale for $1 each

-2 pounds fresh strawberries @$1.88

Now for the coupons…

Final total $77.31 for $24.54.

I already told ya what to do with the chicken in a previous post…the beef roast is already in my crock pot (with a can of beer and half a package of onion soup mix). We like to shred it and eat on buttered buns or add a little BBQ sauce! You can also substitute it for almost any recipe that I mentioned in my ground beef post.
