Staples Door Crashers

This weekend Staples had a great door crasher on an HP printer. What I love about this printer is you can print wireless and even from my HP tablet. 75% off was the sale making it $49.86. These sell from between $199.00 to $149.00 online.

Metro Sales

This weekend Metro had some great sales. Boneless, skinless chicken breats on for $3.99/lb. that's half off! Also, they had Olymel Chicken nuggets on half price for $4.99 with a printable Metro coupon for 50% and the gocoupon.ca $2.50 made these little beauties FREE!

Zellers Price Matching

Well today I tried my hand at price matching at Zellers. I went to the customer service desk first to clarify their policy on PMing and coupons. Seems it is no problem! They price match pretty much any that is not on a special 2/3 day specials. And coupons with the price match is no problem either. Below is my updated planned shopping trip, that I posted Friday night.
  • PM Lococo's 6 pkg Royal tissues $3.99 - $2.00 coupon = $1.99
  • PM Food Basics Hunts Thick and Rich Sauce $.99 - $1.00 coupon = FREE
  • PM Food Basics Bistro Express $1.99 - $0.75 coupon= $1.24
  • PM Zehrs SnackPac $0.99 - $0.25 coupon = $0.74
  • PM Zehrs Kraft Shredded Cheese $5.99 - $1.00 coupon = $4.99 Do Not Carry the Product
  • PM Zehrs Temptations Cat Treats 2/$3 B2GO coupon = 3/$3.00
  • PM Walmart Catelli Smart Pasta $.97 - $0.75 coupon = $0.22 Do Not Carry the Product
  • PM Walmart M&M pouches 2/$5.00 - $2.00 coupons = 2/$3.00
  • PM Walmart Old Elpaso Taco Kits 3 x $2.97 = $8.91 Didn't have the boxes with coupons on them so I will get these at Walmart.
  • Zellers Thinsations $1.99 - $0.75 coupons = $1.24 x 2 = 2/$2.48
  • Tide Stain Release $3.99 - $1.00 = $2.99 x 4 = 4/ $11.96.  Purchase various Tide products to get 10, 000 bonus HBC points
Regular Price: $51.46 - $13.67 Sales From PMing - $13.48 Coupons Total Paid $24.40 A Savings of $27.06 or 52.76%

Sobey's has the 1.5kg bag on for $4.99 making it $2.99 GREAT PRICE! I price matched at Walmart their regular price was $7.93 thats a savings of $4.94 or 62.4%

Shoppers Drug Mart Event

This weekend Shoppers had an event,  if you spent $75.00 you get a bonus 18, 500 Optimum points. That's like a $25.00 redemption value. I alway try and remember that just because there is a points event it doesn't mean I need to go out and shop. But if you watch for the sales on products you use and coupons, you can really get more for your money.My shopping trip below worked out to almost free when you take into account the points I earned, the money I saved with coupons and the coupons I will get back from a promotion.

PepsiCo is having a promotion. If you spend $20.00 on their products, they will send you $20.00 in coupons.
  • 2 x Ruffles Chips reg $3.50 on sale 2 for $6.00
  • 2 x Tostitos Chips reg $3.50  on sale $6.00
  • 2 x Pepsi and Pepsi Lime $9.99
  • Kraft Parm. cheese reg $8.47 on for $5.99 - 1.00=$4.99
  • 2 x doz. eggs sale $2.29 doz - $1.00 coupon = $3.58 for 2 dozen eggs
  • Reading glasses $19.99
  • Cover Girl lip glass reg. $8.99 on sale $7.49 - $2.00 coupon =$5.49
  • 3 x Smuckers jam reg $3.49 on sale for $2.49 - $1.00 coupon = $1.49 each
  • Crest Pro Health Rinse reg $5.99 on sale for $3.99 =$3.99
  • Glide Floss reg $4.49 FREE when you buy the Crest Rinse= FREE
  • 3 x Whiskas Cat Food reg $2.19 on sale $1.89 - B2G1 Free = $3.78
  • Colgate Toothbrushes 2 pk reg $8.49 on sale $4.99 and comes with a 500 bonus points
  • Venus razors reg $11.99 on sale for $6.99 - $2.00 coupon = $4.99
  • 2 x Soft Soapreg $3.99 on sale 2 for $5.00 with a 500 bonus point coupon
  • 2 x Ristorante Pizza reg $6.49 on sale for $3.99 -$1.50 coupon WUB2 = $6.48 or $3.24  each
My bill should have been $138.01. With sales and coupons I saved $47.38.  I spent $90.63 and got 1060 base points, 1000 coupon use points, 18 500 event points, 3000 bonus points for using my Optimum Master Card for a total of 23 560 points today.Thats a $30.00 redemption! So now for $138.01 of merchandise I paid $60.63 a savings of 56.07% and I get $20.00 in coupons from the PepsiCo rebate.

Some would look at the future savings in coupons as bringing down their total further making the $138.01 of products $40.63 for a saving of 70.56%. But I'll settle for the 56.07% savings for today!

Small Walmart Shop

Today I did a small Walmart shop. I didn't need a lot from there and I wanted to head over to Shoppers Drug Mart for their bonus point offer. But here it is:

Price Matched
Dare Bare Paws to Food Basics 2 x $1.99 - .75 coupon WUB2 = $1.61 per box regular $2.47 per box
Dr. O pizza to Food Basics $3.99 - $1.00 coupon= $2.99 regular price $5.67
Whiskas Cat Food to Sobeys $4.99 - $2.00 coupon = $2.99 regular price $7.93

Walmart Sales
2 x Whiskas Pouch $0.69-B1G1= $$0.34 each
3 x Temptation Cat Treats $1.64 - B2G1 = $3.28 $1.09 each
2 x VH Steamers $2.97 - $1.00 WUB2 = $4.94 or $2.47 each
4 x Dove Body Wash reg. $4.47 on sale for $ 2.97 - $2.00 coupon =$3.88 or $.97 each
Royal Bathroom Tissue on Sale for $4.47 - $1.00 = $3.47 regular $9.88

TIP #2
My next tip would have to be to start collecting coupons. There are various methods to get coupons for your collection. Some even mailed right to your door. The tab titled Coupons Mailed to You, lists a variety of coupon sites where you sign up and then choose the coupons you would like. I suggest you order a full page and save some trees. Even if you do not need the coupon yourself, maybe a friend could use it. Then, in about 5-10 days they arrive right to your door. What could be easier? ...

OK I Know You're Reading This!

So I can see that people are reading my blog. There is a little button on my dashboard that gives me numbers of hits. But I would love to know who you are and if you'er enjoying this. So how about joining/following me? If not how about commenting at the bottom of a post? Come on let me hear it. Let me start you off the topic is...

Win Free Groceries For a Year at Ontario Metro

Like their Facebook page and enter to win! https://www.facebook.com/metro.ontario?sk=app_165306963501873  Enter to win groceries for a year and a chance to win one of 3 Metro $ 750.00 gift cards. From January.6th,2011-Feb.12th,2011. Good luck! Make sure to “like” the Metro page.

Where to begin?

I get asked this question a lot. I think the simple answer is to just jump right in. There are so many things you can do to save money. But I think the simplest thing to do, that requires no additional resources, is to Price Match (PM). Price Matching is easy, as all you need to do is scan your weekly flyers. BUT BE ORGANIZED! This makes it easier on you and easier on the cashier who rings in your order. See the TIPS & TRICKS tab above for more information on Price Matching. Try it out and come back to comment on my blog. I would love to hear your stories about price matching!

Have Air Miles?

If you are a collector of these little beauties there is a printable coupon you can use to get money off if you shop at Rexall Pharmacy. Rexall is an Air Miles supporter. I don't shop there a lot and I usually go there for the sales. But with so few Air Miles supporters this coupon can help you save each time you go. It expires in December 2012.

Weekly Sales and Coupon Match-Up

Back from Walmart and my weekly flyer match-up and coupons shopping. I didn't need a lot since my pantry is full but here it is.
  • 8 Campbell's Condensed soups Regular Price $7.76 I paid $2.00
  • 8 Campbell's Soup at Hand Regular Price $15.76 I paid $6.00
  • 2 x VH Steamers Regular  Price $7.94 I paid $4. 94
  • 2 x Thinsations Regular Price  $6.00 I paid $2.50
  • Dare Real Fruit minis Regular Price $6.93 I paid $3.94
  • Iams cat food...cats wanted a treat too. Regular Price  $1.27 I paid $0.77
  • Nestea Iced Tea Regular Price $2.00 I paid $0  FREE
  • 6 x Dove Body Wash Regular Price  $25.62 I paid $5.82
Total of $71.30 in products minus sale prices and coupons I paid $25.97. Savings of $45.33 or 63.58% off my bill!

Campbell's Soup Coupon Used at The Right Time

It's important to check your flyers for good deals and then use the coupon at the right time. Also, make sure you buy the products you use and not just because it is a great price. Today Walmart had Campbell's Soup At Hand on for $1.00. It is regular price of $1.97 so the sale alone is Great! But I also used the Campbell's soup coupon for extra savings. 8 Campbell's Soup at hand for $8.00 minus the $2.00 in coupons. I paid $6.00 for 8 soups. That is a savings of $9.39 or 61.93%.

Campbell's Soup Coupon Used Right

Today I price matched at Walmart! I price matched the Campbell's Condensed soup from Zehrs that was on sale 2 for $1.00. I had the coupon for $1.00 off when you buy 4. I purchased 8 cans for $4.00 - $2.00 in coupons making it $2.00 for 8 cans or $0.25 per can! Regular price at Walmart is $0.97 per can which would have been $7.76. I saved $5.76 or 74.23%

Dove Body Wash Update

Well Walmart restocked a little :-). I was able to get 6 bottles of the Dove Body Wash Visible Care, that was on sale in the flyer for $2.97 and then use my $2.00 off coupon. So 6 bottles of Dove Visible Care Body Wash regular price would be $25.62. The sale price brings it to $17.82. Then when I used coupons it came to $5.82 that is a savings of  $19.80 or a 77.28% savings!

Just a point I want to make. The ad in the paper did NOT specify the Dove Visible Care that I had a coupon for. It read "assorted types". I went to Walmart beforehand to make sure it matched my coupon before I posted it. I do that to make sure that you don't get to the store only to find out you can't use the coupon.

GREAT DEAL on Dove Body Wash

Thought I would share a great deal found at Walmart. In this weeks flyer, they have Dove  Visible Care Body Wash on sale for $2.97 regular price $4.72. That alone is a great deal but with the coupon for $2.00 off Dove Body wash that I found at Shoppers Drug Mart it becomes $0.97! I  went to my local Walmart and of course they were out (my Walmart is always out of the sale items) but I managed to get a raincheck for 6. So I will be picking up this deal next week. That's a savings of 79.4%

For my local friends if you can't find this coupon I have extras!

How to Turn a $10.00 Gift Card into $40.00 of products!

Remember the $10.00 Shoppers Drug Mart Gift Card I mentioned earlier this week? Here is what happened to it. Went back to SDM today and purchased 5 boxes of Nature Valley Granola Bars on sale for $1.99 for FREE. These boxes of bars had a coupon for Oasis Juice up to a value of $3.89. I then went to Walmart and picked up the free juice. So for Free I got 5 boxes of granola bars and 5 free juice. A total savings of over $25.00 depending on what prices you go by. Regular price $40.00 Sale prices $25.00. Overall a savings of 100%!
Many kinds of juices to choose from. I purchased these for my classroom.

Free Yoga Mat Arrived Safe and Sound

Tuesday I picked up the free box of Special K and entered my pin codes on the web site. To update you my FREE yoga mat arrived today. Much larger than I thought and it seem like a good quality. 3 days from order to arrival is pretty good.

The Never Ending Ground Beef

Old El Paso has a $4.00 off ground beef coupons attached.to it's box. I bought a Soft Taco kit at No Frills for $2.99 a couple of weeks ago that had this coupon on it. The next day, I used the coupon by buying another dinner kit box on sale and now there has been a never ending ground beef supply for free. I went to Zehres last night for box 5 that was on sale for $3.99 and got another 2 lbs of lean ground beef for free! And of course the box has another coupon on it! But I did notice that the ground beef coupons are running out and are now replace with movie snack tickets. I didn't take the time to read the new box. I think this has been a great deal since the Ol El Paso kits are often on sale and easy to find. For $2.99 to $3.99 you get the taco kit and 2 lbs of ground beef! Can you say FREE BEEF?

Following My Blog

So I am new to the whole blog thing. It looks like in order for you to show up in my followers box on my page you must have a google account. Here is what google told me:

" if they don't have a Google account (Google accounts do not have to be set up on Gmail accounts, my Google account is set up on my yahoo email account), they can't use Google Friends Connect. If they don't have a Google account set up on some unique valid email address, they are limited to reading your blog at the url through a regular browser, or by subscribing to the feed of the blog and reading it in a feed reader. All it means is that they can't use the "Followers" gadget on your blog...it doesn't mean they can't be regular readers of your blog."

So it looks like everyone has 2 options. 1) create a free google account set up to you email (cogeco, hotmail) Then you can be one of my followers and you will show up in my followers section.

2) Just visit my blog site when you can from this address http://tracyscouponexperiments.blogspot.com/  and follow by email. The link for following by email is at the bottom of my page. This will send you emails when I post to my blog.

Either way is great. You can comment on the blog even if you don't have a google account. Simply hit the comment under my blog post and post a comment by using the Anonymous from the drop down menu. Of course I won't see your name but you could add your name to the comment.

P & G Brandsaver

https://www.brandsaver.ca/en_ca/coupons/  Very easy to sign up to get free coupons mailed to your house. This month P&G has outdone themselves. There are so many coupons on their site you have to order in two batches. Make sure you order yours today.

Price Matching

Price Matching is simple.Here is a list the stores, that will price match items if you find it advertised cheaper elsewhere.
Walmart Bestbuy Futureshop Sears Staples Business Depot Canadian Tire HomeDepot Kitchen Stuff Plus The Brick Toys R Us Zellers HBC Office Depot Save-On-Foods.

Simply bring in the current flyer you want to price match and present it to the cashier. The product must be the same size, brand and product.

Have you used SCOP today?

Scop is a voluntery progran that almost every major retail signs up for.  It promises the customer accurate price scanning at the register on all UPC scanned or Price Look Up (PLU) merchandise. In other words watch and check your bills!

Almost everytime I shop I find an error. When that happens simply ask if they follow SCOP? Scanning Code of Practice If the scanned price of a non-price item is higher than the shelf price or any other displayed price, the customer is entitled to receive the first item free, up to a $10 maximum. If a Code of Practice problem cannot be resolved at the store level, please call 1-866-499-4599 to register your complaint.
I can't tell you how many times I have done this. It is amazing how many store's cash registers ring up the wrong price. I think using this makes stores pay more attention to making sure their prices are up to date. I have SCOP'ed at Shoppers, Walmart and other stores.

OK So I Went on a Coupon Crawl!

Confession I am a popcorn nut!

I eat lots of popcorn. Sometimes even for dinner :-) Sobeys had a managers special and although I didn't have a coupon, this product is an instant win. 1 in 6 chance of winning. So basically every box has a winner. They probably all have free popcorn as the prize but what the heck more free popcorn. What more could a girl want? 6 boxes at $2.99 equals a savings of 48.67% in this case $16.00 off the regular price and a chance to win prizes. I will keep you updated as to what I win.

Pom Wondeful

OK so Zehrs had Pom on for $2.99 regularly $4.99. I had a $1.00 coupon making each one $1.99. And yes Maria mine don't expire till April 2012. That's a savings of 60.12%

Today's Shopping Adventures

So today I went to 3 stores with savings and deals in mind. First stop Canadian Tire. I had a $5.00 coupon that I got earlier in the year with a purchase. It had to be used by today. They had a Lagostina non stick 26" skillet. Regular price $49.99 on for $9.99. With the $5.00 off coupon it was $4.99 plus $1.30 in tax bringing it to $6.29. I used points on the card I got when I bought my tires, so out of pocket was $0.00. Nothing like Free cookware! 100%  savings.

Store 2 was Metro. They had Olymel Chicken wings on sale 2 boxes for $10.00. I had 2 coupons to save $2.50 off each box. So I got 2 boxes for $5.00. They also had Maple Leaf Chucken Bacon on for $2.99 a lb. and you got 2 Air Miles with each one. I bought 4 lbs for $11.96 and 8 Air MIles. Total OOP (out of pocket) $16.96. A savings of 78.50%.

Third and last store was Shoppers Drug Mart. Purchased things I needed and they has some great sales. Regular price $74.36 minus sale prices of $19.09 and coupons of $19.49 paid $35.58 OOP and got a $10.00 SDM gift certificate. Making my amount $25.58 a 65.33% savings.

One of My First Couponing Experiements

This is one of my first couponing and Shoppers Drug Mart Optimum experiments. It took place in November of 2011. I video taped it and put it on youtube. I used a few coupons but mainly sales and Optimum points items were purchased. If you are not an Optimum member you should consider it. Each year they offer a mega redemtion which increases the amount of money you can get back from using points. This year in just over 3 months I earned enough to redeem for an Acer computer for my classroom. I cost me only the tax.

January 2, 2012

Well I decided to create a blog to log my couponing adventures. I have researched the Canadian coupon landscape and have found a lot of information that has helped me along the way. With it being a new year my focus will be on SMART couponing. I will post weekly to keep everyone updated. I will also pass along some of the things that I found out that might help others. Enjoy!
